House Dems Craft Own Border Security Package, Ignore Trump’s Wall

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Democrats, feeling pressure to display their vision for border security, are preparing a package that would ignore President Donald Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion for a wall with Mexico and would instead pay for other ideas aimed at protecting the border. As the government slogged through a record 33rd day of its partial shutdown Wednesday, details of Democrats’ border security plan and its cost remained a work in progress, though some said it might match Trump’s $5.7...

Senate Leaders Agree To Bring Pair Of Bills To Floor That Could End Government Shutdown

For the first time since the government shutdown began more than a month ago, there appears to be a tiny bit of movement. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) have reached an agreement to allow votes on a pair of competing bills to reopen the government — one that includes President Trump’s long-demanded border wall funds, and one that would simply fully fund the government for a few more weeks without any wall money. “For the first time, ...

Trump Lashes Out After Democrats Reject Offer To End Shutdown

WASHINGTON (AP) — Thirty-one days into the partial government shutdown, Democrats and Republicans appeared no closer to ending the impasse than when it began, with President Donald Trump lashing out at his opponents after they dismissed a plan he’d billed as a compromise. Trump on Sunday branded House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a “radical” and said she was acting “irrationally.” The president also tried to fend off criticism from the right, as conservatives accused him of embracing “amnesty” for immig...

#WheresMitch: McConnell Disappears Into The Background Of Shutdown

WASHINGTON (AP) — One of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s guiding principles is: “There’s no education in the second kick of a mule.” Now, deep into a government shutdown he cautioned President Donald Trump against, McConnell is not about to let himself be kicked again. The Republican leader has been conspicuously deferential to Trump since the shutdown began. He’s waiting on the president and Democrats to make a deal to end it. The result is an unusually inactive profile for the GOP ...

Senate GOP Blocks Dem Effort To Enforce Sanctions On Russian Oligarch Firms

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate has narrowly upheld a Treasury Department decision to lift sanctions from three companies connected to Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska.
