WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump announced on Friday that he had dropped his choice for spy chief, Representative John Ratcliffe, after questions about the congressman’s lack of experience and possible exaggerations in his resume. Trump blamed unflattering news coverage for fellow-Republican Ratcliffe’s decision to bow out of the nomination process and instead remain in Congress. “Rather than going through months of slander and libel, I explained to John how miserable it would be for him and...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A majority of Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives now favor launching impeachment proceedings against Republican President Donald Trump, after a California lawmaker on Friday became the 118th Democrat to call for the process to begin. “In the past few years, our nation has seen and heard things from this president that have no place in our democracy,” Representative Salud Carbajal said in a statement that accused Trump of “criminal” behavior. “I believe it is...

President Trump made several eyebrow-raising claims at his Thursday night campaign rally in Ohio, promising his supporters that he was on the verge of announcing a cure for childhood cancer. “The things we’re doing in our country today, there’s never been anything like it,” Trump told his thousands of supporters at the U.S Bank Arena. “We will be ending the AIDS epidemic shortly in America, and curing childhood cancer very shortly,” he claimed. Twitter users were quick to mock the president’s...

CINCINNATI (Reuters) - This time, he didn’t quite go there. President Donald Trump on Thursday briefly renewed his criticism of four minority Democratic congresswomen at his first rally since controversy erupted when a crowd at a rally last month broke into a chant of “Send her back” about a U.S. lawmaker who immigrated to the United States from Somalia. But he did not name or dwell on them. The crowd as a whole did not chant, and the president...

While touting his work on criminal justice reform at Thursday night’s rally in Ohio, President Trump turned toward a group of black supporters in the crowd and pointed before clapping for them. President Trump took a jab at President Obama for failing to pass a criminal justice reform bill, before telling the crowd that the “biggest beneficiary is the African American community. Biggest beneficiary.” Trump then pointed at a group of black supporters in the crowd and began clapping for...

(Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump signaled on Thursday that he still plans to nominate Representative John Ratcliffe to be the next U.S. spy chief despite worries that Ratcliffe may have exaggerated his achievements as a prosecutor. As he left the White House for a rally in Cincinnati, Ohio, Trump was asked by a reporter whether he was concerned. “Congressman Ratcliffe is an outstanding man and I’m sure that he’ll be able to do very well,”...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he would impose an additional 10% tariff on $300 billion worth of Chinese imports starting Sept. 1, as talks aimed at easting tensions between the world’s two largest economies continue. “Trade talks are continuing, and during the talks the U.S. will start, on September 1st, putting a small additional Tariff of 10% on the remaining 300 Billion Dollars of goods and products coming from China into our Country.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - After two sets of Democratic presidential debates, it appears that Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren, at least at the moment, are two high-speed trains on a collision course. Biden, the former vice president, likely did enough at Wednesday’s debate in Detroit to ease concerns among supporters that his front-runner status was in immediate danger after his underwhelming performance in the first debate in June. This time around, he mounted a more combative defense...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Mounting support among Democrats in Congress for impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump seems unlikely to change House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s caution on moving ahead with the politically risky move, Democrats said on Thursday. Support for an impeachment inquiry has surged about 30% among Democrats in the House of Representatives since former Special Counsel Robert Mueller testified on July 24 about his probe of Trump and Russian interference in the 2016 election, a Reuters headcount shows....

(Reuters) - A U.S. judge will hear arguments on Aug. 29 in a lawsuit that President Donald Trump filed to block a U.S. House of Representatives committee from obtaining his New York state tax returns, according to a court filing. U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols in Washington said the hearing later this month would focus on whether he has jurisdiction over New York officials named as defendants in Trump’s lawsuit. Nichols said the New York officials should not comply...

MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis. (Reuters) - Kim Mahoney listened from her reclining living room couch as Democratic presidential candidates debated economic, trade and environmental policies this week, needing only to look to her backyard to see how lofty political pledges can really play out. Once a middle-of-the-road Democratic voter, the 50-year-old paralegal lives in the last house standing in a neighborhood razed for a planned technology plant. President Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans have touted the project for...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump’s longtime political adviser Roger Stone on Thursday lost a long-shot bid to overturn a seven-count indictment against him stemming from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled that Stone’s attorneys had failed to identify any legal grounds that would support dismissing the indictment, which accused him of lying to Congress, obstruction of justice and witness tampering. The indictment against Stone...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former President Barack Obama was not on the Democratic presidential candidate debate stage on Wednesday night, but he was omnipresent as 2020 hopefuls struggled with attacking the legacy of their party’s most popular member. Coming under heavy attack from more liberal, lower-polling candidates, front-runner Joe Biden frequently invoked Obama in his defense, the first black president, for whom he served as No. 2 for eight years. Obama enjoys vast popularity not just in his party, but...
