Local Officials Aren’t Itching To Reopen Schools Even After Trump’s Threat To Do So

Local officials on Sunday expressed that they have hesitations regarding the reopening of schools as coronavirus cases continue surging throughout the country. Last week, President Trump warned that the White House is “very much going to put pressure on governors and everybody else to open the schools.” Vice President Mike Pence also seemed to endorse Trump’s threat during a press briefing by floating the idea of using federal funds to give states a “strong incentive” to reopen schools.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters on Friday the event would be delayed for “a week or two” due to a “big storm” — but that storm was not slated to hit New ...

By Jill Colvin and Eric Tucker, Associated Press WASHINGTON >> President Donald Trump commuted the sentence of his longtime political confidant Roger Stone on Friday, just days before he was set to report to prison.

Trump Aides Not Sweating His Supreme Court Taxes Rebuke

Moments after the Supreme Court resoundingly rejected President Donald Trump’s claims to total immunity from prosecution on Thursday, the president did what he usually does: He began venting his rage on Twitter.Behind the scenes, however, members of his team were far more serene. “It’s not something we are worrying about,” an adviser to Trump’s re-election campaign bluntly told The Daily Beast. That’s because, as that adviser and another source working on the president’s re-election effort say, ...

‘I Find That Hard To Believe’: Tension As Esper Claims Ignorance Of Who Cleared Lafayette Square

Defense Secretary Mark Esper maintained at a committee hearing Thursday that it’s “still unclear” to him who gave the order to clear D.C.’s Lafayette Square of protesters for President Donald Trump’s photo-op in front of St. John’s Church.  The widely-publicized violence involved the U.S. Park Police —  possibly aided by D.C. police — storming the square near the White House and pepper-spraying peaceful protesters before the city’s curfew on June 1.  House Armed Services Committee Cha...

How SCOTUS Let Trump Win — For Now — In The Financial Records Cases

Thursday’s dual Supreme Court decisions on Trump’s financial records were both, in one sense, a loss for the President. But, in another way, they were a victory: Trump may have won a crucial battle in his bid to stop anyone from gaining access to information about his financial past before the November election. In deciding a case about a congressional subpoena for records from Trump’s accounting firm and a criminal subpoena obtained by the Manhattan District Attorney, the Supreme Court likel...

Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) on Monday praised his state’s move to officially erase the Confederate battle emblem, which is a symbol of white supremacy, from the Mississippi flag. “It’s a symbol that more and more represents a day in the past that we don’t want to celebrate,” the GOP senator told CNN, describing the emblem as “divisive.” Wicker argued that Mississippi’s decision came about in part because of NASCAR’s new ban on Confederate flags, which was “absolutely the right thing to do” and “...
