White House Domestic Policy Chief Calls California ‘Occupied Territory’

Trump Got Tons of Campaign Cash Before Handing Out Pardon

Rod Blagojevich, who was sentenced to 14 year...

Pelosi Objects to CNN Anchor’s Claim That Trump Was Acquitted in Impeachment Trial

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) interjected during an interview Saturday to make the case that President Trump was not acquitted from impeachment because his Senate trial lacked additional witnesses and documents demanded by Senate Democrats.“You can’t have an acquittal unless you have a trial, and you can’t have a trial unless you have witnesses and documents — so he can say he’s acquitted, and the headlines can say ‘acquitted,’ but he’s impeached forever: branded with that, and not vin...

Would the Equal Rights Amendment Enshrine Abortion Rights in the Constitution?

Congressional Democrats are on a quest to resurrect the Equal Rights Amendment. This week, the House of Representatives passed a measure attempting to nullify the deadline that Congress had imposed in the resolution sent to states for ratification in 1972.That deadline has long since come and gone, and the amendment failed to receive the necessary support from three-quarters of the states. But that isn’t stopping Democrats from trying again, and many are convinced that it won’t be long before th...

Michael Bloomberg says his money is why Trump got impeached

Roger Stone Sentencing Scandal Renews Questions about Attorney General Bill Barr’s Independence From Trump

Many a career in the Trump administration has imploded after a scathing missive from the president’s Twitter account. But for Attorney General William Barr, it was a congratulatory tweet from Donald J.
