    Roll Call ^ | 16 Oct 18 | Lindsey McPherson
    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday there is nothing she would trade for President Donald Trump’s border wall, setting a hard negotiating stance in advance of an expected December showdown over the issue. “It happens to be like a manhood issue for the president, building a wall, and I’m not interested in that,” the California Democrat said during a discussion at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics.

    Former President Barack Obama is expanding his influence ahead of November's midterm elections. On Monday, he released a second slate of endorsements for Democrats running for offices ranging from local to national, bringing the total to more than 300. Among the most prominent candidates to win Obama's support are Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic congressional candidate who won an upset primary victory this summer in New York; Andrew Gillum, the Tallahassee mayor who is running for governor in Florida; and Kyrsten Sinema, the Democratic nominee for Senate in Arizona. While the candidates that Obama endorsed stretch up and down the ballot...

    As the Senate awaits the results of the FBI investigation into the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Jeff Flake, one of the lawmakers who spurred the inquiry, criticized the judge Tuesday for his recent appearance in the upper chamber. Speaking with Jeffrey Rosen, the president of the National Constitution Center, and Democratic Senator Chris Coons at The Atlantic Festival on Tuesday morning, Flake called the judge’s interactions with lawmakers “sharp and partisan.” “We can’t have that on the Court,” said the Arizona senator, who didn’t elaborate on which interactions he was referring to.

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) is calling for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to be withdrawn following two sexual misconduct allegations against him. Gillibrand on Sunday tweeted her support for Deborah Ramirez, the woman who hours earlier went public in The New Yorker with her accusations against Kavanaugh. Ramirez is alleging that Kavanaugh exposed himself without her consent when the two attended Yale University together in the 1980s.

    Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer says Republicans on the Judiciary Committee can’t be trusted to conduct an impartial review of the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Schumer says voting on Kavanaugh scheduled for this week must be delayed so these “serious and credible” allegations can be investigated by the FBI.

    A Western tourist has sparked anger after begging for money from locals working at a market in a Thai holiday resort. The so-called 'begpacker' - calling himself Alex - was seen next to a donation box and signs pleading 'I'm out of savings... please donate for my trip' at Samkong Market on the island of Phuket. There have been numerous reports of Western travellers begging in the country in the past. But many Thais do not know of the trend and demonstrate their generosity and hospitality by making donations, assuming they are in desperate need of help.

[W]hen Ocasio-Cortez returned to the district for a Bronx community meeting with prominent healthcare activist Ady Barkan last Tuesday, her campaign manager, Vigie Ramos Rios, later told the Chronicle, she was “mobbed” by reporters, “even though we said no Q&A and no one-on-one [interviews].”According to Ramos Rios and campaign spokesman Corbin Trent, that unwanted attention led to a press ban both...

    Democratic congressional Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended banning press from a public town hall this week, saying the move was meant to protect residents of vulnerable communities. Ocasio-Cortez on Friday responded to a tweet from Washington Post reporter Seung Min Kim, who wrote that the candidate “is in for a rough time on Capitol Hill -- where reporters roam freely at all hours of the day and night -- if this is her attitude toward the press.” The reporter also tweeted that the campaign should have made the event private, rather than making it public and stopping the press from attending.

    Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe contrasted the news media’s treatment of his organization’s undercover video investigations with that of former White House aide Omarosa Maginault-Newman’s secretly recorded audio. He offered his remarks in a Tuesday interview with Breitbart News Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak for SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight. O’Keefe examined the news media’s handling of Manigault-Newman’s surreptitious audio recordings of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and her allegations against President Donald Trump. “I can’t hear anyone [in the news media] talking about the selective editing,” said O’Keefe. “I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a bit...

    Hillary Clinton was cheered Saturday in Central Park when she took the stage as part of a star-studded summer festival of conversation, music and food. The former Democratic presidential candidate, secretary of state and U.S. senator from New York told a crowd at the OZY Fest that she'll be tweeting in coming days, helping to organize transportation for immigrants trying to reunite with their families after crossing the U.S. border illegally and being separated. She was interviewed by Laurene Powell Jobs, founder of the Emerson Collective, a nonprofit advocate of liberal causes that organized the two-day festival in the park's...

The Trump-Helsinki summit brought new accusations in Congress Thursday, as GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona accused the president of providing 'aid and comfort' to the enemy. Flake's choice of words evoked the Constitution's definition of treason – at a time when President Trump is facing a new level of scrutiny for his refusal to forcefully condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin for election meddling during their summit meeting Monday in Finland.

    Subtitle: Covering Hillary Clinton’s campaign from before it started to the very last moment. Things were already looking bad when Chelsea Clinton popped the Champagne. It was just after 9 p.m. on election night and she was having her hair and makeup done in the family’s suite at the Peninsula hotel. She stopped to pour what somebody told me was Veuve Clicquot into everyone’s glasses, figuring that in a couple of hours Donald Trump’s run of early victories in red states (West Virginia, Oklahoma, Alabama) would end and the map would turn back in her mom’s favor. Three hours later,...

    “No one in modern politics, male or female, has had to withstand more indignities, setbacks and cynicism. She developed protective armor that made the real Hillary Clinton an enigma. But if she was guarded about her feelings and opinions, she believed it was in careful pursuit of a dream for generations of Americans: the election of the country’s first woman president.” That would have been the nut graf of The New York Times story about Hillary Clinton’s historic victory that would have run under the headline “Madam President” spread across six front-page columns, according to reporter Amy Chozick’s new book,...
