    Trump's Well-Worn Legal Playbook Starts to Look Frayed

    The expanding legal threats facing former President Donald Trump are testing as never before his decades-old playbook for fending off prosecutors, regulators and other accusers and foes, with his trademark mix of defiance, counterattacks, bluffs and delays encountering a series of setbacks. In other legal maneuvering and in seeking to shape public opinion about cases involving him, Trump has experienced regular reversals in court in recent months even as he begins his campaign for another term i

    Biden promotes Baltimore spending as Republicans try to force cuts

    WILMINGTON, Del. (Reuters) -U.S. President Joe Biden on Monday celebrated the planned replacement of a 150-year-old tunnel in Baltimore, burnishing his "builder-in-chief" credentials on friendly political territory, a sharp contrast to Washington's partisan debt battle. Biden's administration will invest $4 billion to replace the Baltimore and Potomac Tunnel, part of the $1 trillion infrastructure law that passed Congress with bipartisan support and stands as one of the president's biggest legi

    Declaring Emergencies and Banning 'Latinx': First Acts for 9 New Governors

    After a midterm election year in which statewide races were almost entirely wrapped up in national issues — abortion and democracy — the nation’s newly elected governors are showing their ambitions with a mix of virtue-signaling on national issues, currying favor with their political bases and, for some, reaching out to broader constituencies. With the direct responsibility of running their states, governors must also quickly produce detailed budgets that put their priorities in full view. Elect

    Matt Gaetz, Political Arsonist, Has New Powers. What Will He Do With Them?

    WASHINGTON — The night before the start of a humiliating and historic five-day floor fight in Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s quest to become speaker, Rep. Matt Gaetz, McCarthy’s chief tormentor, handed him a list of demands from a hard-right faction ensuring that if McCarthy’s victory did occur, it would only be a pyrrhic one. It was Monday, Jan. 2, and McCarthy, soon to move into his new suite of offices, rejected the list outright. “You just want to be speaker,” he told Gaetz, according to two Republic

    Trump's Evolution in Social Media Exile: More QAnon, More Extremes

    In September, former President Donald Trump went on Truth Social, his social network, and shared an image of himself wearing a lapel pin in the form of the letter Q, along with a phrase closely associated with the QAnon conspiracy theory movement: “The storm is coming.” In doing so, Trump ensured that the message — first posted by a QAnon-aligned account — would be hugely amplified, visible to his more than 4 million followers. He was also delivering what amounted to an unmistakable endorsement

    How an Oligarch May Have Recruited the FBI Agent Who Investigated Him

    The FBI tried to recruit Oleg V. Deripaska, a Russian billionaire, as an informant around 2014, hoping he might shed light on organized crime and, later, possible interference in the presidential election. A decade later, Deripaska may have turned the tables on the FBI: Prosecutors say the oligarch recruited one of the bureau’s top spy catchers, just as he entered retirement, to carry out work that they say violated U.S. sanctions. The charges unsealed this week against Charles McGonigal — who r

    U.S. Senate Republicans put Biden on notice over debt ceiling

    Two dozen U.S. Senate Republicans warned Democratic President Joe Biden on Friday that they would not support increasing the federal debt ceiling without at least an equal amount of spending cuts to government programs or structural reform. In a Jan. 27 letter, lawmakers supported legislation to require the U.S. Treasury to prioritize payments for the public debt, Social Security, Medicare, veterans benefits and military pay, if the government were to breach the current $31.4 trillion borrowing
