    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., criticized "half-baked, spurious nationalism" as he accepted the National Constitution Center Liberty Medal in Philadelphia on Monday night for his lifetime of sacrifice and service to the nation. . . . Former Vice President Joe Biden honored McCain by speaking at the event and shared that not only were the two of them close, but their families were close as well. "I can think of no better description for the man we're honoring tonight," Biden said, praising McCain's "courage and loyalty."

    Our political establishment always eagerly supports reform as long as it is no more than theater meant to fool the voters, an entirely phony exercise. In the early 1990s, I held in my hand a small-run book, “Lip Service,” by Richard Viguerie, which highlighted the attempts of Republican leaders to fool conservatives. Finally, after years of conservatives ignoring the obvious need, Steve Bannon, former Trump White House adviser and Breitbart editor, is launching a sustained war to eject Democrats pretending to be Republicans and elect actual, genuine Republicans to the U.S. Congress. Our country is lost without this. But many...

    WASHINGTON — Two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are moving to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller's job, putting forth new legislation that aims to ensure the integrity of current and future independent investigations. Republican Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware plan to introduce the legislation Thursday. The bill would allow any special counsel for the Department of Justice to challenge his or her removal in court, with a review by a three-judge panel within 14 days of the challenge. The bill would apply retroactively to May 17, 2017 — the day Mueller...

Red, white and blue bunting hangs from the second-floor balcony. There's a small wooden sign, "A Promise Kept," over the entrance, and two...

    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday slammed a comment from former Vice President Joe Biden about how budgets reflect priorities. "Don't tell me what you value; show me your budget and I'll tell you what you value," Biden had said. Sen. Chris Coons (D., Del.) mentioned Biden's quote during Tuesday's Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing with Tillerson. Coons used the quote to reference the Trump administration's proposed funding cuts to the State Department's budget. Tillerson said that results gauged values more than funding. "Having the funds are certainly appreciated and needed, but then we have to be able to...

The lawsuit, the first of its kind brought by government entities, centers on the fact that Trump chose to retain ownership of his company when he became president. Trump said in January that he was shifting his business assets into a trust managed by his sons to eliminate potential conflicts of interests. But D.C....
