Washington's growing obsession: The 25th Amendment

Lawmakers briefed by Yale psychiatrist

Lawmakers concerned about President Donald Trump’s mental state summoned Yale University psychiatry professor Dr. Bandy X. Lee to Capitol Hill last month for two days of briefings about his recent behavior.

In private meetings with more than a dozen members of Congress held on Dec. 5 and 6, Lee briefed lawmakers — all Democrats except for one Republican senator, whom Lee declined to identify. Her professional warning to Capitol Hill: “He’s going to unravel, and we are seeing the signs.”

The sexual harassment vote the GOP would like to forget

Republicans voted to protect companies accused of sexual harassment

Not long before a deluge of sexual harassment claims engulfed Capitol Hill, congressional Republicans and President Donald Trump quietly repealed safeguards to protect hundreds of thousands of American workers from such harassment.

Their target was an August 2016 regulation issued by the Obama Labor Department that required businesses to disclose certain labor violations — including sexual harassment — whenever they bid on large federal contracts.

Donald Trump’s Year of Living Dangerously

Trumps Year of Living DangerouslyEver since Trump took the oath of office on January 20, the world has been taking his measure, trying to make sense of his “America First” foreign policy and what it means for them. Over the course of the year, Trump has traveled to 13 countries and met with "more than 100 world leaders," as he bragged in a recent tweet.

Many, like the Latin Americans who dined with him in September in New York or the Australian prime minister whom Trump snapped at in a phone call a little more than a week into his presidency, came away reeling from the encounter. Several others whom I’ve debriefed in recent months found Trump perfectly hospitable in private—while leaving with similarly scathing assessments of his volatility and lack of command of the facts.

Senator Orrin Hatch Announces Retirement

Orrin Hatch to retire, opening way for Mitt Romney

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), the longest-serving Republican senator, announced Tuesday he will not seek reelection in November. The move sets the stage for a likely run for his seat by former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

“Every good fighter knows when to hang up the gloves. And for me, that time is soon approaching," the 83-year-old senator, who was first elected in 1976, said in a video announcement. "That’s why after much prayer and discussion with family and friends, I’ve decided to retire at the end of this term.”

House Republicans quietly investigate perceived corruption at DOJ, FBI

House GOP quietly investigate FBI, DOJ

A group of House Republicans has gathered secretly for weeks in the Capitol in an effort to build a case that senior leaders of the Justice Department and FBI improperly — and perhaps criminally — mishandled the contents of a dossier that describes alleged ties between President Donald Trump and Russia, according to four people familiar with their plans.

A subset of the Republican members of the House intelligence committee, led by Chairman Devin Nunes of California, has been quietly working parallel to the committee's high-profile inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. They haven't informed Democrats about their plans, but they have consulted with the House's general counsel.

Law Clerks Say Federal Judiciary Isn’t Equipped To Handle Sexual Harassment

Judge Alex Kozinski resigns after accusations of sexual abuse The federal judiciary is ill-equipped to handle allegations of sexual harassment and “significant changes” are necessary to ensure those working for the third branch of the U.S. government are protected, a group of more than 500 current and former federal judicial clerks and employees wrote in a letter to Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and other key members of the judiciary on Wednesday.

The letter, obtained by HuffPost, was sent two days after Alex Kozinski, one of the nation’s most high-profile federal appeals court judges, announced his retirement following accusations from multiple former female clerks of inappropriate sexual behavior. (He has since apologized.) Kozinski forced the federal judiciary into the national conversation about sexual harassment in the workplace, but his case also highlights why tackling this problem can be particularly difficult for those working for powerful judges.

Sen. Mark Warner warns Trump: Firing Robert Mueller would cross 'red line'

Mark Warner warns Trump about firing MuellerThe top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee warned President Trump on Wednesday that any effort to dismiss Russia special counsel Robert Mueller would amount to "a gross abuse of power."

Speaking from the Senate floor, Virginia Sen. Mark Warner noted there has been "a growing chorus of irresponsible and reckless voices" from the Republican House to conservative media outlets who have called on the president to shutter Mueller's inquiry into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with Trump associates.
