    Washington (CNN)Traditionally, it's the role of the first lady to accompany spouses of visiting foreign leaders around Washington. That often means a good deal of showcasing local museums, schools, monuments and gardens. It's essentially playing tour guide, but it's part of the role of representing the Administration and playing gracious hostess to very VIP out of town guests. Melania Trump appears to be breaking with this particular tradition. On two pre-scheduled Washington stops Friday, one to Gallaudet University and the other to attend a National Cherry Blossom Festival committee meeting at the Japanese embassy, the first lady of Japan, Akie...

    John Podesta, the former campaign chairman of Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, said Wednesday that fake and misleading news stories are “undermining our democracy.” “It’s sinister, and it’s a vile stream that runs under the ground and it begins to have an effect and takes its toll,” Podesta said at the NewCo Shift Forum, a conference dealing with present-day capitalism, according to Business Insider. Podesta is likely referring to the potential danger of fraudulent news stories with a direct effect on real life. “It’s undermining our democracy.

    Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is “talking about” running for New York City mayor, Newsmax reports. It has only been 57 days since President-elect Donald Trump defeated Clinton. During the election slog, Clinton, 69, collapsed getting into a Secret Service van, had multiple coughing fits during speeches and seemed to have trouble walking up steps at a rally in Lake Worth, Fla. “If she ran, she’d win,” a Newsmax source said. She was a New York senator from 2001 to 2009. During that time, her popularity peaked at 60 percent in 2001 and ping-ponged from as low as 47...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A group the White House recently identified as a key surrogate in selling the Iran nuclear deal gave National Public Radio $100,000 last year to help it report on the pact and related issues, according to the group's annual report. It also funded reporters and partnerships with other news outlets. The Ploughshares Fund's mission is to "build a safe, secure world by developing and investing in initiatives to reduce and ultimately eliminate the world's nuclear stockpiles," one that dovetails with President Barack Obama's arms control efforts. But its behind-the-scenes role advocating for the Iran agreement got more...

"She has a long and distinguished history championing the right of all parents to choose schools that best ensure their children’s success," Bush said in a statement posted on Facebook. "Her allegiance is to families, particularly those struggling at the bottom of the economic ladder, not to an outdated public education model that has failed them from one generation to the next."

Instead of once again being distracted by trying to get rid of a secular dictator, Tulsi explains, the US must stay out of counter productive wars and focus on defeating the Islamist extremists who have declared war on America.

Skeptical of Trump’s warmer relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, lawmakers in both parties are breaking with the incoming administration to carve out a tougher stance. Lawmakers would like the president-elect to rein in Russia, but they’re also signaling that Congress will act on its own. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said when it comes to Russia he’s planning to be “a bit of a hard ass.” “We cannot sit on the sidelines as a party and let allegations...

Ryan must now win a floor vote in January of all 435 House members. If about two dozen Republicans were to withhold their support, his election would be thrown in doubt. Several Republicans made clear this week that although Trump’s victory may have eased the internal party tensions that threatened Ryan’s speakership before the election,...

The tensions come after a bitter campaign, in which Trump used the press as a foil.

    House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), who told The Washington Post this week that Hillary Clinton would face “years” of potential probes if she won the presidency, has asked FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to provide documents about his wife's 2015 campaign for Senate — a campaign that received financial support from Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D), a close Clinton ally. Chaffetz also tweeted Friday that the FBI would examine new emails related to the investigation into Clinton's use of a private server. “There are outstanding questions . . . regarding a possible conflict of interest into this case,” Chaffetz said...

    (snip) According to the New Yorker, "Comey’s decision to make public new evidence that may raise additional legal questions about Clinton was contrary to the views of the Attorney General, according to a well-informed Administration official. Lynch expressed her preference that Comey follow the department’s longstanding practice of not commenting on ongoing investigations, and not taking any action that could influence the outcome of an election, but he said that he felt compelled to do otherwise." Traditionally, the Justice Department has advised prosecutors and law enforcement to avoid any appearance of meddling in the outcome of elections, even if it...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: This is Jim in World Series Chicago. Great to have you on the program, sir. Hello. CALLER: Thanks, Rush. I appreciate it. I think I can connect a few the dots here for you on the FBI investigation. Let me give you a little background just very quickly. Your question: Why now for the FBI? WikiLeaks has been releasing these emails and they have been progressively getting worse as they have been going along. But, as you recall, they've only been about Hillary. They haven't been her emails, and that's been the big thing, not her personal...

    CNN reporter Phil Mattingly said the Hillary Clinton campaign was “stunned” Friday by the news that the FBI was re-opening the investigation into the Democratic candidate’s private email server, adding the campaign plane did not have WiFi and thus the team had no idea about the news until it landed in Iowa. “It’s kind of an incredible thing,” Mattingly said. “The plane did not have WiFi during the entire flight, so you had senior advisers, as well as Hillary Clinton, on the plane, and as the plane landed they were finding out about this.” One Clinton adviser actually told Mattingly...

    Newly released emails show that Hillary Clinton’s top State Department adviser, Huma Abedin, granted access to the then-secretary of state during overseas diplomatic visits based upon Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) donor status. A Dec. 4, 2012 email obtained by Citizens United and shared exclusively with The Daily Caller shows that Paul McElearney, CGI’s head of member development, emailed Abedin asking if he could meet with Hillary Clinton during her trip to Ireland two days later. Abedin said that she could accommodate McElearney, and he then asked if several other people, including two CGI sponsors, could also meet Clinton. McElearney forwarded...
