    Former House Speaker John Boehner said at an event in Las Vegas last week that he used to “sneak into” the White House to see President Barack Obama to avoid scrutiny from the “right-wing press”.... ...Boehner also lamented the fact that Americans now have too many choices of where to go for news and information. “What’s making everything even worse today is because we have so much news, people get to choose where they get their news,” Boehner said, according to the Post. “It used to be we had three big TV networks, five big newspapers, and five big radio...

    Three Republicans joined Senate Democrats on Wednesday to reject an effort to overturn an Obama administration rule limiting methane emissions from oil and natural gas drilling. Only 49 senators voted to move forward with debate on legislation to undo the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) rule, short of the 51 votes needed. Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) joined all 48 members of the Democratic caucus in rejecting the resolution under the Congressional Review Act (CRA). Graham and Collins had previously publicized their plans to vote against the legislation. But McCain’s vote came as a...

    While speaking with reporters on Monday, McCain bashed the White House for refusing to share more information regarding how Trump came to his conclusion. . . . "I have never heard of a president of the United States accusing his predecessor or any other president of the United States of violating the law," McCain said.

    Lindsey Graham was not in complete agreement with President Donald Trump's inauguration speech on Friday, saying that he "doesn't know what America first means." “To the president, if America first is a throwback to the 20’sand 30’s isolationism when it was first used as a phrase, the world would deteriorate even quicker, if it is a new way of Ronald Reagan’s peace through strength I would like to work with him. I don’t know what America first means,” Graham said on CBS’s “Face the Nation."

    A leading US Republican says she fears for the future of her seven grandchildren with Donald Trump in the White House. Christine Todd Whitman, head of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under George W Bush, accused Mr Trump of ignoring compelling science. And she warned that his threat to scrap climate protection policies puts the world's future at risk. Trump supporters say rules on climate and energy are stifling business. But Ms Todd Whitman says the US must find ways of promoting business without unduly harming the planet.

    It’s not even December, and one Senate Republican is already undermining Donald Trump’s plans in regards to the country’s broken immigration system. Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham told Politico Wednesday that he is working with Senate Democrats to propose legislation guaranteeing young illegal immigrants the protections outlined in President Obama’s wide-ranging executive actions on immigration. Donald Trump promised throughout the election that he would repeal all of Obama’s executive actions, which would leave the 740,000 “Dreamers” legally living in the America through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program open to deportation. “The worst outcome is to repeal the...

    President-elect Donald Trump ran on a platform of being extremely tough on immigration. One of his vows to voters was that he’d get rid of President Barack Obama’s executive actions, which could include those that provided protections to young undocumented immigrants from being deported. One Republican lawmaker and Trump critic is now prepping legislation that would keep those protections in place in case Trump moves forward with his pledge. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has said he is working with both Democrats and Republicans in order to protect immigrants, known as Dreamers, who willingly came forward to give their information in...

    Ted Cruz is considering rescinding his reluctant endorsement of Donald Trump, according to multiple reports. A Ted Cruz aide confirmed the talk to ABC News, and a source gave similar intel to CNN. BuzzFeed News reported that the Cruz camp said there's "nothing to share right now." Trump earned a hard-fought endorsement from Cruz about two weeks ago. The Texas senator said the Supreme Court and other policy issues superseded his own personal disagreements with Trump. In the wake of leaked audio of Trump's lewd comments about women, Cruz tweeted Friday that the remarks were "disturbing and inappropriate."

"You yourself, sir, Mr. Trump, have stated repeatedly that the goal, the objective, has got to be to defeat Hillary Clinton in November. I couldn't agree more. It is for precisely that reason, Mr. Trump, that I respectfully ask you, with all do...

    Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) is predicting that congressional Republicans will be more willing to work with Hillary Clinton than they have been with President Obama, should she be elected president. "She is a known commodity, and I think there’ll be more camaraderie in terms of working together, than there might have been in the early days of Obama," Isakson told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Isakson, who is running for reelection and has endorsed GOP nominee Donald Trump, added, "I don’t think it will be like the post-Obama election at all." Isakson's comments come as Clinton has narrowly trailed Trump in...

    House Speaker Paul D. Ryan is poised to launch a frantic cross-country tour over the final five-week stretch before Election Day aimed at saving the GOP’s congressional majority. The Wisconsin Republican will hit 17 states and 42 cities from several corners of the nation, from Texas to Florida to New York, while raising money and stumping for more than a dozen House and Senate candidates, according to his political advisers. Unlike most of the speaker’s previous political travel — which focused on closed-door fundraisers — Ryan’s appearances will include many public events with Republicans who are facing difficult reelection prospects.

But first, as he started a Q&A with Bloomberg's Margaret Carlson, he told a joke. 'I have the sniffles and I'm not using cocaine. I promise you,' Graham said.

    The immigration reform proposal backed by a bipartisan group of senators can't be compared to President Obama's healthcare reform law, said Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), one of senators that introduced the proposal argued Tuesday. "First of all, ObamaCare, you can't compare the two," Rubio said in an interview on "The Michael Medved Show."
