Dems Accuse DeVos’ Deputy Of Interfering With Internal Investigation

BOSTON (AP) — Democrats in Congress are accusing the Education Department of interfering with an investigation by the agency’s independent watchdog. Five lawmakers sent a letter to Secretary Betsy DeVos on Tuesday saying her deputy pressured the department’s inspector general on Jan. 3 to drop an internal investigation. When the inspector general said she would continue the inquiry, she was told weeks later she was being replaced. That decision was quickly reversed after it became public. A de...

Justin Fairfax (D) of sexual assault, wrote a piece in the Washington Post Monday describing the harrowing and traumatic experience of coming forward with her allegation and being smeared, ignored and taken advantage of. “Despite the professed belief of numerous elected officials in Virginia and elsewhere that Vanessa Tyson, who says that Fairfax sexually assaulted her in 2004, and I have brought forward credible allegations,...

McCabe and 60 Minutes Avoid Discussing Why Russia Factored in Comey’s Firing

Andrew McCabe is a good witness and he made a favorable impression, at least on me, in his 60 Minutes interview with Scott Pelley. Pelley and his editors did a great job highlighting McCabe’s down-to-earth likability. Unlike Jim Comey, a career prosecutor and corporate lawyer before he became FBI director, former deputy director McCabe is a career agent; his relation of events smacks of the Bureau’s “just the facts, ma’am” ethos. And McCabe’s account of Trump telling him to ask his wife what it ...

Focus on Virginia blackface scandal misses a bigger point

David Love writes that focusing on the blackface scandal surrounding Gov. Ralph Northam and others causes racism to be thought of as a historic artifact. It takes attention away from the present issue of systemic racism and all of its implications -- from health to wealth -- for black people.

NBC Sports Top 25: Kentucky beats Tennessee as injuries abound

Put another way, I still buy the idea that this Tennessee team can win it all, just like I still believe Virginia can win it all despite losing to Duke twice in the last month. Beyond that, the toughest thing to do with ranking teams this week was figure out what to do about injuries. I dropped Michigan State to No.
