Talking Points Memo
Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) on Friday accused his counterpart in the House, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), of creating a false narrative about Obama administration national security adviser Susan Rice.

Speaking to CNN after Rice was interviewed by the panel in closed session, Burr said he asked no questions about whether she improperly requested and revealed the identities of U.S. individuals swept up in intelligence reports—an accusation Nunes has made repeatedly.

Sinclair has been hammered for a perceived conservative and pro-Donald Trump bias, but Chris Ruddy—CEO of conservative media news outlet Newsmax and a friend of President Donald Trump—does not like the proposed Sinclair-Tribune deal and has asked the FCC to hold off on making any decision about it.

In a filing with the FCC, Newsmax joined Dish, the American Cable Association and Public Knowledge in asking the FCC for additional time to weigh and comment on the proposed deal. A Newsmax representative confirmed Ruddy has major problems with the combo.

A former Obama official who earlier this year acknowledged urging her D.C. contacts to leak dirt on President Trump's team returned to the spotlight Thursday — using an appearance at a security forum to accuse the president of "Kremlin tactics" and openly question whether he owes the Russians money.

Evelyn Farkas, who left the Obama administration in 2015 after serving as a deputy assistant secretary of defense, spoke on a panel Thursday at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado. She took aim at Trump for past remarks that the United States, like Russia, has killed people too.

The major failure of the Republican healthcare plan, to repeal and replace Obamacare, should come as no surprise to any lucid observer. Congress, on both the Democratic and Republican sides of the aisle, has been moribund for decades, and its popularity among the citizenry of its members reflects this sad reality.

But what is worse than simply the ineptitude and political sclerosis of the institution, is its abject dishonesty with the American people. Deceit and obstruction have become the order of the day. Take the case of the Republican lead House Intelligence Committee, which not only has, for gutless political reasons, gone off as has the Senate Intelligence Committee, on a Russian collusion jihad, but now is also conducting a sham of an investigation into the illegal and criminal mass surveillance of millions of Americans by our intelligence agencies and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

The Russian lawyer who landed a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. during last year's presidential campaign with the promise of dirt on Hillary Clinton had one big thing in common with the Democratic candidate: Both had opposed Russia sanctions targeting human-rights abusers.

Further, former Secretary of State Clinton's initial opposition coincided with a $500,000 speech her husband gave in Moscow — a link her 2016 campaign fought to downplay in the press, according to WikiLeaks-released documents.

WASHINGTON — Actions by President Trump and his administration have created a historic ethics crisis, the departing head of the Office of Government Ethics said. He called for major changes in federal law to expand the power and reach of the oversight office and combat the threat.

Walter M. Shaub Jr., who is resigning as the federal government's top ethics watchdog on Tuesday, said the Trump administration had flouted or directly challenged long-accepted norms in a way that threatened to undermine the United States' ethical standards, which have been admired around the world.

Want to know why the Trump campaign was receptive to help from outside persons, groups, and national interests in conducting and receiving so called "opposition research" concerning Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton? Eight words explain it: "The courts refused to do their legal duty!"

In this regard, not just my public interest group Freedom Watch, but a host of others, including my former foundation Judicial Watch, and numerous media organization such as the Associated Press, had filed Freedom of Information Act requests to uncover documents and records concerning Mrs. Clinton's numerous alleged scandals, ranging from the Benghazi tragedy, the misuse of a private email server, her ties to foreign interests and their perceived quid pro quo contributions to the Clinton Foundation, the selling of waivers to do business with terrorist Iran and her now famous uranium deal with Russian interests, both greased while she was Secretary of State, not to mention the huge speaking fees potentially laundered and disguised by other countries to Bill Clinton.

With 48 hours left in office, then-Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) sat down with Chuck Todd to talk about his time in Congress, the cost that his family paid for his tenure in Washington, and why he was leaving when his party was in power. The full interview is available in the latest 1947: The Meet the Press Podcast.

For some, serving in Congress can feel like toil. Many Representatives spend years working as junior members of a committee, or sit on the sidelines as members of a party that's out of power. Chaffetz leaves at the top - he was the chair of the powerful House Oversight Committee, and he was a figure with a nationally recognizable name. So when he announced his retirement earlier this year, many suspected he had greater ambitions.

A close confidant of Pope Francis, writing Thursday in a Vatican-approved magazine, has condemned those within American presidential administrations who espouse the ideology of "Christian fundamentalism" — naming White House chief strategist Steve Bannon as a proponent of such "apocalyptic geopolitics."

In a damning article, the Rev. Antonio Spadaro, editor of the influential Jesuit journal La Civilità Cattolica, also took aim at conservative religious support for President Donald Trump, accusing activists of promoting a "xenophobic and Islamophobic vision that wants walls and purifying deportations."

Judge Jeanine Pirro said she is sick of seeing the double standard embraced by Democrats when it comes to the Russia collusion narrative.

"If the devil called me and said he wanted to set up a meeting to give me opposition research on my opponent I'd be on the first trolley to hell to get it," the judge said on her show Sunday. "And any politician who tells you otherwise is a bald-faced liar."

This week saw the Russia collusion accusations against the Trump campaign resurface when a meeting came to light between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and a Russian lawyer who promised damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

Chelsea Clinton fired back at a Fox News contributor on Saturday who said that her mother, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, would "literally sell her daughter" to be president.

On Fox News's "The Five," contributor Lisa Boothe called Hillary Clinton "the most soulless woman on the planet."

"[She] would literally sell her daughter to be president, literally sell her only child to be president," she said.

James B. Comey, the former F.B.I. director who was fired in May by President Trump, is writing a book about his experience in public service, including his tumultuous and brief tenure in the Trump administration.

Mr. Comey has been meeting with editors and publishers in New York in recent days, and is being represented by Keith Urbahn and Matt Latimer, partners at the literary agency Javelin. The book is expected to go to auction this coming week, and all the major publishing houses have expressed keen interest, Mr. Latimer said.

McConnell, R-Ky., released a statement on Saturday night saying that he would defer action on the measure while McCain recovers at his home in Arizona.

"While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act," McConnell said.

At his presidential library in Dallas on Thursday, George W. Bush sat for an hour with his predecessor, Bill Clinton, and tried to convey the depths of their friendship.

Bush called Clinton humble, and respectful. He went further. He called the former president his "brother with a different mother" — not the first time he's used that term for the man who unseated his father, President George H.W. Bush, from the Oval Office.
