FEC official wants proof of New Hampshire voter fraud claims

Trump lies about NH voter fraudPresident Trump reportedly claimed during a meeting with lawmakers Thursday that out-of-state voters were bused into New Hampshire, costing him and Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte a victory in the state. Now a Federal Election Commission official wants Trump to prove it.

Trump got 46.5% of the vote, compared to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's 46.8%. She received the state's four electoral votes. Such an allegation would mean that thousands of people illegally voted in New Hampshire — a felony under New Hampshire law, commissioner Ellen L. Weintraub said in a statement Friday afternoon.


US investigators corroborate some aspects of the Russia dossier

Trump dossierFor the first time, US investigators say they have corroborated some of the communications detailed in a 35-page dossier compiled by a former British intelligence agent, multiple current and former US law enforcement and intelligence officials tell CNN. As CNN first reported, then-President-elect Donald Trump and President Barack Obama were briefed on the existence of the dossier prior to Trump's inauguration.

None of the newly learned information relates to the salacious allegations in the dossier. Rather it relates to conversations between foreign nationals. The dossier details about a dozen conversations between senior Russian officials and other Russian individuals. Sources would not confirm which specific conversations were intercepted or the content of those discussions due to the classified nature of US intelligence collection programs.

Trump's travel ban remains on hold, 9th Circuit Court rules

Trump travel ban stays on holdA federal appeals court refused Thursday to reinstate President Donald Trump's ban on travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations.

The panel of three judges from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals declined to block a lower-court ruling that suspended the ban and allowed previously barred travelers to enter the U.S. An appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court is possible.

U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle issued a temporary restraining order halting the ban last week after Washington state and Minnesota sued. The ban temporarily suspended the nation's refugee program and immigration from countries that have raised terrorism concerns.


Senate confirms Obamacare opponent Price to lead health department

Price inaugurated for HHS postThe Senate early Friday morning installed Rep. Tom Price as the nation’s top health care official, putting him in charge of HHS and Republicans’ effort to make good on their pledge to repeal and replace the sweeping Affordable Care Act.

Price’s confirmation came by a slim 52-47 margin, ending weeks of partisan rancor marked by ethics allegations, boycotts and sharp breaks with Senate tradition and decorum. The seven-term congressman maintained full Republican support throughout the process, ensuring his path to HHS secretary was never in real danger. No Democrats voted for him.
