Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on Thursday night that President Donald Trump should lay off on tweeting his opinions about criminal cases after Attorney General Bill Barr said it’s “impossible” to do his job with Trump’s commentary in the background. “Maybe the President should listen to the attorney general,” McConnell said during an interview with Fox News host Bret Baier. “Do you think the tweet about his opinion on the Roger Stone sentencing recommendations is inapprop...

Pompeo Says He Doesn’t Know Who First Described Embassy Threat As ‘Imminent’

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo did nothing to clear up confusion over whether there was “specific” intelligence supporting President Trump’s claim that there was an “imminent threat” by top Iranian military official Qasem Soleimani to attack four US embassies, during a Monday night interview on Fox News.

"When I first came to Washington, I was surprised at how few Democrats had taken their argument for the merit of paid leave to their colleagues across the aisle."

"So it really was starting from the beginning and talking about this policy and framing it in different terms.... We proposed the first ever bipartisan, bicameral plan.... [T]he president has made very clear he thinks that this is critical policy. And now we are working with members on both sides of the aisle to see who has the right policy to move forward and to be able to garner the votes to pass this into law....  I think the option that has been put out there by the Democrats without even op...
