    Sen. Mazie Hirono asked Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett whether she has been the perpetrator of any sexual misconduct, a question Hirono said she asks all nominees. “I ask each nominee these two questions, and I will ask them of you. Since you became a legal adult, have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors or committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature?” the Hawaii Democrat asked during the hearing on Tuesday. Hirono also used her time on Tuesday to criticize Barrett over her use of the phrase “sexual preference” instead of “sexual...

    The federal prosecutor Attorney General Bill Barr tapped to investigate whether Obama administration officials improperly requested the unmasking of individuals during the 2016 election has concluded his probe without “finding any substantive wrongdoing,” The Washington Post reported Tuesday. Barr appointed U. S. Attorney Jeremy Bash to review whether there was wrongdoing by the Obama administration in requesting the identities of individuals — in particular Trump allies — whose names are redacted in intelligence reports during the heated election. The practice, known as unmasking, is common and done to help government officials make sense of the intelligence documents they are reviewing,...

    On Thursday, several congressmen called for a federal investigation into the Florida Democratic Party (FDP) after revelations that it applied for and accepted a large sum from a federal aid program designed to assist small businesses and workers hammered by the coronavirus pandemic and which explicitly excluded political entities. In a letter led by U.S. Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL), members of the Florida congressional delegation called for a federal investigation into the FDP’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) application and for all documents, including the application itself, to be made public. Implemented by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), the PPP...

    Democratic nominee Joe Biden on Friday said that voters don’t deserve to know if he would attempt to pack the Supreme Court if he wins in November and Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed to the high court. Biden was asked in Las Vegas, Nevada, about his position on packing the court with extra justices -- something that has seen support from a number of Democrats, particularly since President Trump announced his intention to confirm Barrett to the seat left vacant by the death of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.JOE BIDEN DOUBLES DOWN ON COURT PACKING: 'YOU'LL KNOW MY POSITION' AFTER...

    Vice presidential debates are rarely as thrilling as the showdowns between the two people running for commander-in-chief. But Wednesday’s faceoff between Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris and Vice President Mike Pence in Salt Lake City, Utah, is taking on heightened importance. With 74-year old President Trump and 77-year old Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden being the oldest standard bearers ever to lead the Democratic and Republican national party tickets, the vice presidential debate was already consequential – with both running mates seen as presidents in waiting. But with Trump in isolation at the White House -- after spending...

    NEWSMAX ^ | Wednesday October 07, 2020 | By Jason Devaney
    The most accurate poll for the 2016 presidential election now says that President Donald Trump is just 2.6 percentage points behind Democrat Joe Biden. Four years ago, IBD/TIPP said the race between Trump and Hillary Clinton was closer than other national polls, and it was found to be the most accurate predictor of that election and the previous three. The latest IBD/TIPP poll results show a tightening race between Trump and Biden among likely voters: •48.6% support Biden and 45.9% support Trump. That difference is within the margin of error. •A previous IBD/TIPP poll, whose results were released Sept. 21,...
