Rep. Matt Gaetz denies relationship with 17-year-old and claims extortion attempt
(CNN)Rep.

U.S. Supreme Court takes up bid to revive defense of Kentucky abortion law
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear a bid by Kentucky’s Republican attorney general to defend a restrictive state law, struck down by lower courts, that abortion rights advocates have said would effectively ban the procedure after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

Biden administration frets J&J may miss vaccine goal
Biden administration officials are increasingly concerned Johnson & Johnson may not deliver the 20 million doses of coronavirus vaccine it promised would be available by the end of this month, according to three senior administration officials. The full tranche of vaccine Johnson & Johnson committed in February to delivering may not be ready to ship until the second or third week of April, the officials said, potentially complicating preparati ...

Boulder shooting looms over Senate guns hearing
In less than the span of a week, at least eighteen people have died in two high-profile mass shootings, reigniting Democrats’ rallying cries for Congress to pass comprehensive gun control measures. While the House passed a gun safety bill less than two weeks ago, its fate appears roadblocked in the Senate, which will likely only amplify the progressive push to nix the legislative filibuster. “We don't know all the details yet, but we DO know o ...

Killing the filibuster becomes new 'litmus test' for Democratic candidates
Senate Democrats lack the votes right now to scrap the filibuster. The midterms may change that. In three of the most competitive Senate races, Democratic candidates are already campaigning on killing the Senate’s 60-vote requirement for most bills, placing the chamber’s arcane rules at the forefront of the nascent 2022 midterms. Those reform-minded Democrats are running on voting rights legislation, a minimum wage increase and background chec ...

Trump looks to take down Raffensperger in Georgia
Former President Donald Trump is expected to endorse Rep. Jody Hice in a campaign to unseat Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in next year’s Republican primary, according to three people familiar with Trump's decision. Trump publicly seethed about Raffensperger after the November election, when the secretary of state refused to support Trump's false claims that Georgia's 16 electoral votes were stolen from him. Top Raffensperger ai ...

'God, no': GOP immigration allies disappear as crisis mounts
Lindsey Graham introduced a bipartisan immigration bill 43 days ago. But if it came up on the Senate floor today, he wouldn’t support it. “God, no,” the South Carolina Republican senator scoffed in an interview. “I’m not in support of legalizing one person until you’re in control of the border.” Graham was one of four Republicans who took a massive political risk in 2013 and supported a comprehensive immigration bill with four Democrats, ...

Biden and Harris condemn anti-Asian violence as investigation into Atlanta shootings continues
President Joe Biden on Friday forcefully condemned anti-Asian violence in response to the shootings earlier this week at three Atlanta-area spas, but did not go so far as to label the attacks a hate crime. "Whatever the motivation, we know this," Biden said about the attacks, which left eight dead, including six Asian women. "Too many Asian Americans have been walking up and down the streets and worrying, waking up each morning the past year f ...

Same old Joe: Rebuffing staff who smoked pot fits Biden's MO
Anyone surprised that Joe Biden would scrutinize the weed-smoking habits of his White House staff hasn't paid attention to one of the more consistent policy threads of his decades-long career. He’s just not ready to embrace cannabis. Despite a shift in public opinion toward legalizing marijuana over the past 30 years, the president’s more conservative approach to weed policy is well-known on Capitol Hill. When the Daily Beast reported lat ...

Rep. Tom Reed, who is eyeing a Cuomo challenge, accused of sexual misconduct on 2017 trip
An Army second lieutenant has accused Rep. Tom Reed of sexually harassing her in 2017 when she was working as an insurance lobbyist, the Washington Post reported Friday. Nicolette Davis said that the Republican congressman drunkenly came onto her in an Irish pub, and she alleged that he placed his hand on her thigh and unhooked her bra strap. A person seated nearby helped escort Reed out of the Minneapolis restaurant after she sought help sepa ...

Proud Boys leaders facing new conspiracy charges related to Jan. 6 Capitol riot
Prosecutors unveiled new conspiracy charges Friday against four leaders of the Proud Boys, the pro-Trump extremist group that participated in the storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6, charging them with a plot to disrupt Congress’ certification of the 2020 election. The grand jury indictment, handed up last week and unsealed Friday by a federal judge in Washington, alleges that Ethan Nordean of Seattle, Zach Rehl of Philadelphia, Charles Donahoe ...

Democrats Would Regret Nuking the Filibuster
There’s nothing that ails Joe Biden’s agenda, we are supposed to believe, that ending the filibuster wouldn’t fix. President Joe Biden showed a little leg on changing the filibuster in an interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC News the other night, while almost every Senate Democrat wants to ditch it. Even Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who still supports the filibuster, said a couple of weeks ago that resorting to it should be more “painf ...

Why So Many Politicians Are Such A--holes
Politicians have devoted their professional lives to the art of public persuasion. Reputation is everything. Success hinges on getting as many people as possible to view their ideas and their life stories as sympathetically as possible. Sounds simple enough. But here is a puzzle: Why are so many people in the business of being likable actually so unlikable? Not unlikable merely in the awkward, eye-rolling, prefer-not-to-spend-much-time-wi ...

Could Putin Launch Another Invasion?
A trained KGB agent, Vladimir Putin knows how to hide his feelings, but in 2013, after former President Barack Obama described him looking like “the bored kid in the back of the classroom,” Putin let it be known that he was furious. And rightly so: kids in the back of the room are rarely ambitious. Putin, from day one of his rule 21 years ago, has had big, ambitious plans for himself and for Russia. A far greater Soviet patriot than a Russian ...

Georgia Republicans make unexpected push on another bill to restrict voting
(CNN)A key committee in the Republican-controlled Georgia legislature on Wednesday made a surprise move and began work on a massive new voting bill that would give the state broad powers over local election officials, set limits on weekend early voting and add voter ID requirements for absentee ballots. Word of a new 93-page bill came about an hour before a scheduled hearing of a special election integrity committee in the Georgia House, and i ...

Intelligence report contradicts claims by Trump and his team on China election interference
Washington (CNN)The US intelligence report released Tuesday detailing foreign election interference in the 2020 election contradicts repeated statements from former President Donald Trump and senior members of his administration that China -- and not Russia -- was the top foreign threat to the integrity of the election. The report also raises questions about the effort from Senate Republicans to investigate the Bidens and Ukraine, a probe that ...

Fact check: Biden wrong on three statistics he cited in ABC interview
Washington (CNN)President Joe Biden sat for an interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday. Biden was generally factual in the interview, much of which aired on Wednesday. But he was wrong on three statistical claims. The context around two of these inaccurate claims suggests they may have been slips rather than purposeful lies. And on the third claim, regarding the history of the Senate filibuster, Biden explicitly told Stephan ...

White supremacy and hate are haunting Asian Americans
(CNN)In one sense, it's immaterial whether the accused killer in the Atlanta spa shootings admits to a racist motivation. Asian Americans, already traumatized by a rising tide of hate, violence and rhetoric, have been living in fear for months. The murders of eight people, including six Asian women, among them four South Koreans, further disoriented and horrified a community already unfairly stigmatized by racial association during a pandemic ...
