Trump shifting positions at breakneck pace

Trump shifting positionsDonald Trump promised to be open-minded on a number of issues. Over the past week, he’s delivered.

The man who pledged to cut deals rather than adhere to any ideology — or to any detailed policy platform — has, in recent days, demonstrated an incredible willingness to bend his past positions, or abandon them entirely. Sometimes he offers an explanation; sometimes not. But after an embarrassing failure to deliver on his promise to repeal Obamacare, Trump is making sure the world knows he does not share the hard-line proclivities of the House conservatives who derailed the health care deal and have proved a thorn in the side of Republican leaders.

'Apprentice' contestant disputes Trump immunity claim

Apprentice contestant lawsuitA former "Apprentice" contestant who is suing President Donald Trump for denying her claims that he kissed and groped her is disputing Trump's assertion that he is immune from her defamation lawsuit while serving as president.

Lawyers for Summer Zervos said in a court filing Monday that Trump is still subject to the suit over the matter, even though he now holds the country's highest political post.

"Precisely because Defendant's underlying tortious behavior has nothing to do with his current duties or office, and because it occurred before he took that office, he does not have immunity from suit," Zervos' attorneys wrote. "No person is above the law in this country and that includes the President of the United States."
