Trump U: The lawsuit Donald Trump will be facing this summer

Trump University law suitImagine getting a personal letter direct from Donald Trump. It’s on nice paper and offers you an exclusive opportunity to learn how to get rich in real estate — directly from the master and his chosen apprentices.

Donors ask GOP consulting firm to research independent presidential bid

Donors ask GOP consultants for independent bidConservative donors have engaged a major GOP consulting firm in Florida to research the feasibility of mounting a late, independent run for president amid growing fears that Donald Trump could win the Republican nomination.

A memo prepared for the group zeroes in on ballot access as a looming obstacle for any independent candidate, along with actually identifying a viable, widely known contender and coalescing financial support for that person. The two states with the earliest deadlines for independent candidates, Texas and North Carolina, also have some of the highest hurdles for independents to get on the ballot, according to the research.


Dow settlement signals impact of Scalia death on class actions

Dow Chemical settles class action caseDow Chemical Co's agreement to pay $835 million to settle a price-fixing dispute provides evidence that Justice Antonin Scalia's death is a blow to businesses that have had success recently in challenging class action cases at the U.S. Supreme Court.

Dow(DOW.N), in the process of merging with Dupont (DD.N), on Friday settled the decade-long dispute rather than risk its fate being decided by a shorthanded, eight-justice court missing, in Scalia, a reliable vote in support of companies in class action cases.

Caucus chaos: reports of double voting, Trump gear on some Nevada poll staff

Caucus chaos in NevadaThe Republican caucuses in Nevada descended into chaos on Tuesday evening, with multiple reports of double voting, and even more of caucus volunteers – who are supposed to remain neutral as they distribute and count the ballots – wearing Donald Trump apparel at caucus sites.

Vote-counting and voter registration mistakes, including multiple allegations that identification was not checked by volunteers when voters were signed in, were also reported in multiple caucus sites. Disorganization also led to long queues at caucus sites across the state.

The cause appeared partly to be extremely high turnout, with many caucus sites running out of ballot papers entirely.


Ex-Trump Adviser Roger Stone Barred From CNN

Roger Stone  barred from CNNCNN has pledged to stop booking Donald Trump supporter and regular guest Roger Stone after he wrote a series of incendiary tweets against network personalities.

In a statement released today to Media Matters, a CNN spokesperson said of Stone: "He will no longer appear on CNN."  

Stone is a notorious "dirty trickster" who recently co-authored The Clintons' War on Women. The 2015 book is dedicated to -- and cites research from -- a Holocaust denier who blames a "Jewish plot" for the 9/11 attacks. Stone's history includes forming an anti-Hillary Clinton group named "C.U.N.T." during the 2008 election.
