Only Two People Can End This Shutdown. And Neither Is Budging

A bipartisan group of senators got involved. The president’s son-in-law and the vice president took a shot. A group that calls itself the Problem Solvers Caucus tried its hand.

WH Denies Trump Told Cohen To Lie: ‘Absolutely Ridiculous,’ ‘Categorically False’

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked point-blank on Friday whether President Trump directed his then-attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress and she denied a blockbuster report claiming just that. “That is absolutely ridiculous,” she said of the BuzzFeed News scoop. “I think that the President’s outside counsel addressed this best and said in a statement earlier today that it’s categorically false.” When asked about the Wall Street Journal report from Thursday that r...

Collusion Isn’t a Specific Crime. But These Four Things Are Against the Law

President Donald Trump once succinctly summed up his two-part defense on his campaign’s contacts with Russia during the 2016 election in an interview with the New York Times: “There is no collusion, and even if there was, it’s not a crime.” In recent days, the first half of that defense has started to look shakier.…

Conway: Law Enforcement Leaks ‘Should Send A Chill Down Everybody’s Spine’

What Was Up Between Cohen, Trump During Period Covered In BuzzFeed Blockbuster?

A potentially momentous Thursday BuzzFeed report provided the clearest-cut indication yet that President Trump may have violated federal law. Two federal law enforcement sources told the publication that Trump personally directed his former attorney, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about matters related to the Russia investigation—an order that Trump’s own attorney general nominee believes would constitute obstruction of justice.

50 moments from 1969 that shaped entertainment and pop culture

It was the last year of the ’60s, and the last year for Boris Karloff, Judy Garland and the Beatles, too. But it was also the first year for Led Zeppelin, Jennifer Aniston, “Easy Rider” and Jay-Z, too. John Lennon and Yoko Ono spent part of it in bed in public. The Doors’ Jim Morrison spent part of it in jail. Moviegoers spent time watching “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” while at home they watched a brand-new show called “The Brady Bunch” about a brand-new kind of blended family, the youn...

Freshmen House Dems Take Wildly Different Tacks In Shutdown Approach

WASHINGTON (AP) — One group went to the White House with Republicans to talk about border security and reopening shuttered parts of the government. Another, led by social media stars, marched around Capitol Hill in a widely-posted but futile search for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — hashtag #WheresMitch.

No, the government shutdown isn’t a ‘crisis’

This government shutdown is now longer than any in history. The media keep using the word “crisis.” “Shutdown sows chaos, confusion and anxiety!” says The Washington Post. “Pain spreads widely.” The New York Times headlined, it’s all “just too much!” But wait. Looking around America, I see people going about their business — families eating in restaurants, employees going to work, children playing in playgrounds, etc. I have to ask: Where’s the crisis? Pundits talk as if government is the most i...
