Trump Lays Down Cover Fire Before Release Of Mueller Report

President Donald Trump on Wednesday attacked senior Justice Department officials and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in an apparent attempt to undermine the credibility of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.

Voting Rights Primer: Ross Declines To Answer Key Questions About Census Citizenship Question

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross was grilled Thursday by the House Oversight Committee about his move to add a census citizenship question. Many of the explanations he gave about damning 2017 emails — emails that contradicted his official justification for adding the question — didn’t pass the smell test. He also refused to say whether he spoke to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions about adding the question, or to anyone else at the White House besides Steve Bannon. Ross was not the only admin...

Ross Won’t Disclose What White House Convos He Had About Census Citizenship

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Thursday declined to elaborate on what conversations he may have had with the White House about adding a Census citizenship question —  beyond detailing his previously-known spring 2017 phone call with then-Trump advisor Steve Bannon. House Oversight Democrats sought to grill Ross on any White House conversations, given that his testimony in front of Congress last year suggested he had none. At Thursday’s hearing, Ross said that any hypothetical White House d...

Ross Grilled On Emails From Early 2017 Showing His Interest In Census Change

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Thursday attempted to explain to lawmakers an email he sent to an aide on May 2, 2017, expressing frustration “nothing” had been done in response to his “months old” request to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. The email undercut his previous congressional testimony that suggested the push to add the citizenship question was initiated by a December 2017 Justice Department request to have it included. Ross on Thursday said that he was frustrated i...
