    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has opened an inquiry into allegations the FBI worked with the British spy who authored a controversial opposition research dossier on President Trump during the 2016 election. In a Monday letter to FBI Director James Comey, Grassley asked for records pertaining to any agreements the agency may have had with Christopher Steele.[snip] “The idea that the FBI and associates of the Clinton campaign would pay Mr. Steele to investigate the Republican nominee for President in the run-up to the election raises further questions about the FBI’s independence from politics, as well as the...

    President Donald Trump's choice for national security adviser, retired Vice Admiral Robert Harward, has turned down the offer, sources familiar with Harward's decision said on Thursday. Harward was offered the job after Michael Flynn was fired by Trump on Monday for misleading Vice President Mike Pence over his conversations with Russia's ambassador to the United States. Two sources familiar with the decision said Harward turned down the job in part because he wanted to bring in his own team.

    President Barack Obama announced Thursday he is ending a longstanding immigration policy that allows any Cuban who makes it to U.S. soil to stay and become a legal resident. The repeal of the "wet foot, dry foot" policy is effective immediately. The decision follows months of negotiations focused in part on getting Cuba to agree to take back people who had arrived in the U.S. "Effective immediately, Cuban nationals who attempt to enter the United States illegally and do not qualify for humanitarian relief will be subject to removal, consistent with U.S. law and enforcement priorities," Obama said in a...

    Washington (CNN)President Barack Obama is ending the longstanding "wet foot, dry foot" policy that allows Cubans who arrive in the United States without a visa to become permanent residents, the administration announced Thursday. The move, which wasn't previously outlined and is likely one of the final foreign policy decisions of Obama's term, terminates a decades-long policy that many argued amounted to preferential treatment for a single group of migrants. Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, a Cuban-American, put out a blistering statement denouncing the move as one that "will only serve to tighten the noose the Castro regime continues to...

    WASHINGTON, United States — Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein dropped her efforts Saturday to request a vote recount in Pennsylvania, one of three battleground states won by Donald Trump where she is challenging the results. “Petitioners are regular citizens of ordinary means. They cannot afford to post the $1,000,000 bond required by the court,” read a filing submitted in the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania. On Twitter, she later added: “#Recount2016 is so expensive because of elected leaders who have refused to invest in a 21st-century voting system.”

    President-elect Donald Trump is to name Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus as his chief of staff, his campaign announced Sunday. But the real estate mogul is elevating Steven Bannon, who helped chart Trump's rise to victory with relentless attacks on his opponents, to a prominent role as his 'chief strategist.' The news of the appointment of Priebus, one of the most important moves of Trump's new transition, signals a more traditional approach to governing – though it might not be what some of Trump's millions of anti-establishment supporters were expecting when Trump promised to 'drain the swamp' in Washington...

    HAMPTON, Va. – A new Hampton University poll shows Donald Trump surging in Virginia in the wake of the FBI reopening its probe into Hillary Clinton’s emails.

    Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced late Sunday the start of a military offensive to retake Mosul, the country's second largest city, from the Islamic State group. State TV showed a brief written statement announcing the start of the widely anticipated military offensive to drive the terror group out of the northern city home to more than a million civilians. Broadcasts showed the prime minister, dressed in a military uniform, speaking while flanked by senior officers. State TV broadcast patriotic music within minutes of the announcement. The thuds of sporadic artillery shelling rumbled across the rolling Nineveh plains in the...

    It’s striking that Barack Obama, the Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. military, is doing backroom deals with Iran, which the U.S. State Department has listed as the top state sponsor of terrorism in the world. A former Pentagon official and specialist on rogue regimes, Michael Rubin, stated that payments of this nature are “highly irregular” and they “bolstered the strength of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and augmented its ability to finance and conduct terrorism.” This secret deal announcement also comes at a time of increasing provocation by Iran against American vessels in the Gulf.

    Even before the FBI identified new cyber attacks on two separate state election boards, the Department of Homeland Security began considering declaring the election a "critical infrastructure," giving it the same control over security it has over Wall Street and and the electric power grid. The latest admissions of attacks could speed up that effort possibly including the upcoming presidential election, according to officials. "We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid," Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said. "There's a vital national interest in our election...
