Feinstein posts testimony of Fusion GPS co-founder

Diane Feinstein posts Fusion GPS interviewSen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) has posted the entire transcript of closed-door testimony that Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson made to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Fusion GPS last week demanded that the full transcript be released, sparking a fight with Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) over who was standing in the way of the document being released.

The Senate Judiciary Committee interviewed Simpson in August as part of its investigation into Russia's election interference.

Democrats to Grassley: Release Russia-related transcripts

Dems want Fusion GPS testimony released

Two Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are pushing Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, to release transcripts of an interview with a founder of the firm that commissioned the controversial dossier about President Donald Trump and Russia.

They also complained focusing attention on the firm or the former British spy Christopher Steele, who compiled the dossier, is a distraction. Grassley and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, called last week for the Justice Department to launch a criminal inquiry into Steele.

Did Jeff Sessions Just Increase the Odds Congress Will Make Marijuana Legal?

Sessions opening door to legitimate potWhen Jeff Sessions announced Thursday morning he had removed the barrier that had held back federal prosecutors from pursuing marijuana cases in states that had made pot legal, he delivered on something he had all but promised when he was nominated as attorney general. Most of the marijuana world saw it coming, but they freaked out anyway.

A fund of marijuana-based stocks dropped more than 9 percent in value and, as a sign of how mainstream marijuana has become, Sessions’ decision to repeal the Cole Memo, an Obama-era protection for states that have legalized marijuana, even affected the stock price of Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, which dropped more than 5 percent.

Business leaders in an industry that was worth $7.9 billion in 2017, called Sessions’ action revoking “outrageous” and “economically stupid.”

Washington's growing obsession: The 25th Amendment

Lawmakers briefed by Yale psychiatrist

Lawmakers concerned about President Donald Trump’s mental state summoned Yale University psychiatry professor Dr. Bandy X. Lee to Capitol Hill last month for two days of briefings about his recent behavior.

In private meetings with more than a dozen members of Congress held on Dec. 5 and 6, Lee briefed lawmakers — all Democrats except for one Republican senator, whom Lee declined to identify. Her professional warning to Capitol Hill: “He’s going to unravel, and we are seeing the signs.”

The sexual harassment vote the GOP would like to forget

Republicans voted to protect companies accused of sexual harassment

Not long before a deluge of sexual harassment claims engulfed Capitol Hill, congressional Republicans and President Donald Trump quietly repealed safeguards to protect hundreds of thousands of American workers from such harassment.

Their target was an August 2016 regulation issued by the Obama Labor Department that required businesses to disclose certain labor violations — including sexual harassment — whenever they bid on large federal contracts.

Donald Trump’s Year of Living Dangerously

Trumps Year of Living DangerouslyEver since Trump took the oath of office on January 20, the world has been taking his measure, trying to make sense of his “America First” foreign policy and what it means for them. Over the course of the year, Trump has traveled to 13 countries and met with "more than 100 world leaders," as he bragged in a recent tweet.

Many, like the Latin Americans who dined with him in September in New York or the Australian prime minister whom Trump snapped at in a phone call a little more than a week into his presidency, came away reeling from the encounter. Several others whom I’ve debriefed in recent months found Trump perfectly hospitable in private—while leaving with similarly scathing assessments of his volatility and lack of command of the facts.
