Anita Hill: I still hold Biden accountable but would consider voting for him

Anita Hill would consider voting for Biden

Anita Hill has said she could see herself voting for Joe Biden, despite his past treatment of her, saying she considers him “perfectly capable of running for president”.

Before announcing his presidential bid in April, Biden contacted Hill to express his “regret for what she endured” while testifying against US supreme court nominee Clarence Thomas in 1991, a hearing over which the former vice-president presided and where Hill was given little support as she alleged persistent sexual harassment from Thomas when they worked together. She later said she was not satisfied with Biden’s comments and that she did not consider it a proper apology.


DC board rejects Trump Hotel effort to dismiss complaint seeking removal of liquor license on basis of Trump's 'character'

DC Board rejects Trump attempt to dismiss liquor lilcence challenge

The Alcoholic Beverage Control Board in Washington may review a group’s challenge to President Trump’s liquor license at his D.C. hotel because he allegedly doesn’t satisfy requirements of having “good character,” The Washington Post reports.

The board issued an order Wednesday that blocked the Trump International Hotel’s motion to dismiss the protest, which came from an attorney, two former judges and some religious leaders who make up the Campaign for Accountability and Transparency Inc.

The city requires that those who sell alcoholic beverages in the nation’s capital “is of good character and generally fit for the responsibilities of licensure.” The group asserts the Trump doesn’t meet that bar, the Post reports.


‘Let me make something 100% clear’: FEC chair lays down the law on foreign help

FEC Chair Weintraub:Let me make something perfectly clear...

The head of the Federal Election Commission released a statement on Thursday evening reiterating, emphatically, that foreign assistance is illegal in U.S. elections.

“Let me make something 100% clear to the American public and anyone running for public office: It is illegal for any person to solicit, accept, or receive anything of value from a foreign national in connection with a U.S. election,“ wrote Ellen Weintraub, chairwoman of the FEC. “This is not a novel concept.“

She also sent the statement via Twitter with the introductory line: “I would not have thought that I needed to say this.“


Rep. Susan Brooks shocks GOP with retirement decision

Re Susa run

Rep. Susan Brooks has decided not to seek reelection in 2020, a stunning blow for House Republicans who had chosen her to lead recruitment in their attempt to claw back the majority.

The Indiana Republican will leave after her fourth term in the House, where she has been a rare moderate voice in a GOP that has veered sharply to the right under President Donald Trump. She has also been a vocal advocate for helping to elect Republican women to the House, where she is currently one of just 13.

Rep. Tom Emmer, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, said that Brooks will continue to head up the party's recruitment efforts: "We are full steam ahead."


Top Trump health official warned against controversial ObamaCare changes in private memo

Trump health official warns against new health plan

A top Trump administration health official warned against controversial changes that could undermine ObamaCare in a private memo last year that was released by House Democrats on Friday.

One of the three changes was later finalized by the administration, despite the warning from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma in the memo. And the other two have not yet been proposed but remain under consideration.

House Democrats said Friday the fact that the administration approved an alteration that could undermine ObamaCare over the objections of one of its own top officials shows that the Trump administration is intent on “sabotage” of the Affordable Care Act.


A Trio of Trump Rules Will Remake U.S. Health Insurance Markets

Three Trump rules allow for less regulation

President Donald Trump’s attempt to transform American health insurance is almost complete.

Twenty months ago, frustrated after attempts to repeal Obamacare fell apart in the Republican-controlled Senate, Trump pledged to use executive power to do what Congress failed to legislate. An executive order set in motion regulations to promote “healthcare choice and competition across the United States.”

On Thursday, the administration finished the last of three rules to do just that -- advancing conservative policies without undoing the central framework established by the ACA.



U.S. court rules against Trump administration in immigrant teen abortion case

US Appeals Court rules againste Trump in teen abortion caseA three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld a lower court decision that found the government cannot unduly burden the ability of a woman to obtain an abortion under established Supreme Court precedent.

The case involves the intersection of two divisive social issues on which Republican President Donald Trump has taken a hard line: abortion and immigration.

It began with a 17-year-old girl, whose name and nationality were not disclosed and was called “Jane Doe” in legal papers. She came to the United States alone in 2017 and was placed in the care of the Office of Refugee Resettlement, which falls under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and houses immigrant children.


Japanese Tanker Owner Says U.S. Is Wrong About Gulf Attack

Japanese tanker owner: US is wrong about attackYutaka Katada, the owner of one of the stricken fuel tankers crippled in explosions in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday, says the U.S. is wrong about the way the attack was carried out.

Speaking at a press conference in Tokyo on Friday, he contradicted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the U.S. Navy, which released a video that purports to show an Iranian patrol boat removing a limpet mine from the port side of the Kokuka Courageous.

Katada said his ship was attacked on the starboard side by a flying object, not by a mine.


Design of Harriet Tubman $20 Bill ‘Was Ready for Next Year’ When Treasury Secretary Mnuchin Delayed It

Mnuchin delayed Tubman $2 bill though it was readyThe New York Times on Friday revealed a design of a new $20 bill adorned with former slave and abolitionist Harriet Tubman.

Mnuchin drew scorn last month when he said the design was delayed for six years due to “technical reasons.” But the Times was able to get a copy of the design—which Mnuchin had said couldn’t be done—directly from a source at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.
