    Obama appointee and former CIA director John Brennan is the target of a perjury investigation by the House Intelligence Committee. Chairman Devin Nunes is turning his attention to the role the CIA played in promoting the Steele dossier. Brennan said under oath that he didn't know who commissioned the dossier and that it was not used to conclude that Russia had meddled in the 2016 presidential campaign. Brennan also swore that he did not know who commissioned the anti-Trump research document, even though senior national security and counterintelligence officials at the Justice Department and FBI knew the previous year that...

    Two women died digging for clams along the Washington coast Friday in separate incidents that occurred after they were caught in rough surf, officials said.

"These incidents serve as a tragic reminder that one must always be vigilant of the powerful surf and waves that are often present on our ocean beaches," Sheriff Scott Johnson said.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. employers added a robust 200,000 jobs in January, and wages rose at the fastest pace in more than eight years, evidence of a healthy job market. The pay gains suggest that employers are increasingly competing for a limited pool of workers. Raises stemming from Republican tax cuts and minimum wage increases in 18 states also likely boosted pay last month. The unemployment rate remained 4.1 percent for a fourth straight month, the lowest level since 2000, the Labor Department said in its monthly jobs report Friday.

    Another day, another scandal Judicial Watch uncovers. On Wednesday, the conservative watchdog released 42 pages of “redacted State Department documents,” given to Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD), for the purpose, as Tom Fitton describes it, of “undermining,” President Trump. The documents, given to Cardin, a top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and frequent critic of President Trump, detailed Russia’s alleged “political interference in elections and politics in countries across Europe.” Judicial Watch reports: (video)

    The FBI said Wednesday that the bureau has “grave concerns” about the classified memo that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses, but White House Chief of Staff John Kelly says it is going public, anyway. “With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it,” the FBI said in a statement. “As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.” But earlier Tuesday, Kelly told Fox News in an exclusive interview...

    The White House appears to have banned Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) from participating in immigration reform negotiations due to recent strain between Graham and the Trump administration, as well as other Republicans in the House and Senate. Tensions first rose when Graham advocated for an immigration deal that failed to address President Donald Trump’s main concerns regarding chain migration and border security alongside Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.). The situation worsened when the Republican senator criticized chief of staff John Kelly as never having “closed a deal before, politically” and top policy adviser Stephen Miller as being an “outlier” on immigration,...

    The Twitter account belonging to Fox News host Sean Hannity vanished on Friday evening after an intense episode of his show focusing on corruption in the Department of Justice and the FBI — and a very strange tweet. The final tweet before his account disappeared read, “Form Submission 1649.” Those who attempted to access his feed were met with a blank account or an error message that read “Sorry, that page does not exist.” There has been speculation online that he was either hacked or deactivated by a rogue employee, but neither theory has been confirmed. We have reached out...
