    With several of his Democratic rivals hosting competing events down the street, President Trump confidently told raucous rallygoers Thursday evening in New Hampshire, the state that gave him his first presidential primary win, that they have "no choice" but to vote for him again in 2020 -- if they want their 401(k)s to remain intact. "Are we sure we're in New Hampshire?" Trump asked at one point, as the crowd roared and he discussed the state's soaring economy. "You have a reputation as a very staid, very elegant people, and you're not acting it tonight, and that's a good thing."...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Treasury Department labeled China a currency manipulator Monday after Beijing pushed down the value of its yuan in a dramatic escalation of the trade conflict between the world’s two biggest economies. The decision, which came hours after President Donald Trump accused China of unfairly devaluing its currency, marks a reversal for Treasury: In May, it had declined to sanction China for manipulating its currency. The U.S. has not put China on the currency blacklist since 1994.The designation could pave the way for more U.S. sanctions against China.Earlier Monday, China had allowed its currency to weaken...

    Dem Sen Ron Wyden Escorts Pregnant Illegal Over the Border to Have Anchor Baby….”It’s Her Right” Senator Ron Wyden personally escorted a pregnant Mexican woman across the border so that she can have an anchor baby. Why? Because he says it is the right of Mexican women to enter the United States to anchor the taxpayers with her baby. Wyden also said that she has an absolute right to free healthcare paid for by overtaxed Americans. The woman was 8 1/2 months pregnant and living in a holding area in Mexico – without a valid claim of asylum – and...

    In a 5 to 4 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court has temporarily given the green light to the Trump administration to reallocate $2.5 billion in Pentagon military funds for construction of a border wall, even as court challenges continue. The court's conservative majority, siding with the White House, lifted a lower court injunction that had temporarily put a hold on the move as the case proceeds. "The government has made a sufficient showing at this stage that the plaintiffs have no cause of action to obtain review of the Acting Secretary's compliance with Section 8005," the court wrote in a...

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) announced Friday that his committee is filing an application in court to obtain the grand jury material underlying former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference and possible obstruction of justice by President Trump. Nadler said that the panel is seeking the material in order to decide whether to recommend articles of impeachment against Trump — perhaps the Democratic chairman’s most significant and public acknowledgement that his committee is considering impeachment as a possibility. "Because Department of Justice policies will not allow prosecution of the sitting president, the United States House of...

    In a testy exchange with Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, former Special Counsel Robert Mueller admitted during testimony Wednesday that he was friends with former FBI Director James Comey. Mueller, who was appearing in his first of two congressional hearings, said first that he and Comey were “business associates” and then – after being pressed by Gohmert – added that he and the former FBI director were “friends.” The exchange between Mueller and Gohmert highlighted the deep divide within Congress – and among the American public – over Trump and the investigation by Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Strzok was later removed by Mueller after text messages between Strzok and his lover, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, showed their disdain for Trump. Mueller said he learned of Strzok's animus toward Trump...
