Steve King's white nationalism may finally cost him

Steve King's white nationalism may finally cost himIn the final days before midterms, in a sleepy farm district in ruby red Trump country, the re-election campaign of Iowa Rep. Steve King has become a surprise electoral bellwether for Democrats’ chances of retaking the House.

King, one of the most hard-line Republicans in Congress, was last elected for his eighth term in 2016 with 61 percent of the vote; in 2016, Donald Trump won his county by 27 points. Yet as of Monday, his lead against Democratic challenger J.D. Scholten has narrowed to just one point.

Riyadh said the journalist was killed in a “fist fight” as part of a rendition attempt gone wrong, after denying for weeks that he had come to any harm in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Quigley said on CNN’s “The Situation Room” that Murphy was dishonest with him when she failed to acknowledge Trump’s role in the decision to keep the FBI near the Trump Hotel in Washington — a move that would prevent the sale of the property to a potential commercial competitor.

Collusion judgment looms for key Senate panel

Senate Intel CommitteeThe Senate Intelligence Committee is approaching a major decision point in its investigation into Russia's election interference where lawmakers will weigh in on whether members of President Trump’s campaign colluded with Moscow.

The question risks dividing a panel that has kept a bipartisan facade for nearly two years since the committee began its investigation. The final conclusion is sure to be a major flashpoint in a probe that has largely prodded along behind the scenes, as lawmakers and committee staff interview witnesses and prepare reports on their findings.
