Trump national political director 'steps back' from campaign

Jim MurphyJim Murphy, Donald Trump’s national political director, is no longer playing an active role on the campaign, according to three sources briefed on the move – a troubling development for the Republican nominee coming just 19 days before the election.

"I have not resigned but for personal reasons have had to take a step back from the campaign," Murphy said in a statement to POLITICO. He did not elaborate on the reasons for his departure.

Several Trump aides said that Murphy has been conspicuously absent in recent days as the campaign mobilizes for the final push.



Federal Judge: Voters Illegally Removed From Ohio Rolls May Cast Provisional Ballots

Ohio voters can submit provisional ballotsA federal judge in Ohio laid out a plan on Wednesday for the state to restore voting privileges for people who were illegally removed from the state’s voter rolls over the past five years.

The ruling stems from a case in which the ACLU and other plaintiffs sued, saying Ohio’s process for removing people who had died or moved away from voter rolls was illegal because it purged people simply for not voting and not responding to a letter from the state.


Woman alleges Trump groped her at U.S. Open

Woman alleges Trump groped her at US OpenA New York woman is accusing Donald Trump of groping her outside of the U.S. Open tennis tournament in 1998.

Karena Virginia, a yoga teacher and lifestyle coach, said Trump approached her while she was waiting for her car outside of the tennis tournament in Queens, N.Y., when she overheard Trump and a few other men talking about her.


Trump refuses to say he will accept election result

Trump refuses to accept lossDonald  Trump, the Republican Party nominee for US president, has refused to say that he would accept the election result if he loses, as he clashed with rival Hillary Clinton in their third and final debate.

Declining to be drawn on what he would do, he said: "I will look at it at the time."

Trump has leaned on an increasingly brazen strategy in the campaign's closing weeks, including peddling charges that the election will be rigged, despite no evidence of widespread  voter fraud  in previous US presidential contests.


Report: Trump Hires New Black Panther Alarmist To Monitor Elections

Mike RomanThe Donald Trump campaign has brought on a controversial GOP operative with ties to the Koch brothers to run the campaign's "election protection" program, the Guardian reported.

Mike Roman, Trump's new elections monitor, is perhaps best known for his involvement in the New Black Panther controversy in 2008, as his website first posted the video and he continued to ring the alarms bells that the group was engaging in voter intimidation, even as the Department of Justice was divided about the case. He also led an "intelligence agency" connected to the Koch brothers' Freedom Partners network, Politico reported in 2015, that sought to monitor the election-related activities of Democrat-supporting groups.


Confessions of a Trump Fact-Checker

Trump liarWhen Donald Trump ludicrously accused Hillary Clinton, at the first presidential debate, of trying to fight the Islamic State for her “entire adult life,” Clinton didn’t offer a rebuttal. Instead, she issued a request: “Please, fact-checkers, get to work.”

They were already working. Thanks to the brazenness of Trump’s deceit, fact-checking, that unglamorous journalistic activity once mostly relegated to niche websites and little boxes beside newspaper articles, is having a moment. Big news organizations now assign teams of reporters to fact-check the debates in real time. CNN, among other networks, is using its bottom-screen chyrons to challenge Trump’s most obvious lies. And every day, full-time fact checkers take a false claim, or three, or four, and meticulously explain why it is wrong.


70 Nobel Laureates Endorse Hillary Clinton

70 Nobel winners endorse HillaryIn an open letter released Tuesday and addressed to the American people, 70 Nobel laureates “strongly and fully” endorsed Hillary Clinton for the presidency.

“To preserve our freedoms, protect our constitutional government, safeguard our national security, and ensure that all members of our nation will be able to work together for a better future,” the letter began, “it is imperative that Hillary Clinton be elected as the next President of the United States.”

The Nobel recipients in economics, physics, chemistry, and medicine suggested that the next president must be someone displaying “vigorous support for science and technology” and someone with the intent to promote innovation with “sensible immigration and education policies” to bolster the scientific workforce.
