  • Democratic Party sues Trump Campaign, Wikileaks, Russia, others, over 2016 elections

  • Trump denounces Comey, Russia probe, after release of Comey memos

  • Instant leaks as feds deliver Comey memos to Congress

    Bowing to demands from Republicans in the House, the Justice Department on Thursday night gave lawmakers memos written by former FBI Director James Comey after meetings and phone calls with President Donald Trump, with the resulting leaks only amplifying Comey’s story that Mr. Trump had pressed him repeatedly about the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

    And in classic Washington fashion – the memos were leaked almost immediately to news organizations.

  • Lawmakers press for more publicity on harassment settlements

    The head of the Capitol Hill office which deals with workplace harassment cases said Wednesday that she still does not have the power to reveal the names of lawmakers who used taxpayer dollars to pay legal harassment settlements, drawing sharp rebukes from members of both parties on a House spending panel, as lawmakers in both the House and Senate expressed growing frustration about the matter.
