Nebraska Democratic Party official caught on tape wishing Steve Scalise 'was dead'  

A Nebraska Democratic Party official was captured on tape saying he was "glad" House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) was shot during practice for the Congressional Baseball Game last week, Nebraska.TV reports. "I wish he was [expletive] dead," said the official, identified as technology chairman Phil Montag. Scalise's condition improved to "fair" on Wednesday; he had arrived at the hospital in critical condition. Scalise suffered fractured bones, internal bleeding, and extensive damage to h

Trump blasts Mueller over 'bothersome' friendship with Comey  

On Friday, Fox & Friends aired the first televised, in-person interview President Trump has given in six weeks. In it, Trump praised progress on health care, claiming that "I've done in five months what other people haven't done in years," and blamed the Obama administration's "unmasking and surveillance" for his threat to former FBI Director James Comey about tapes of their conversations. "My story didn't change," said Trump, who confessed Thursday he had no tapes. "My story was always a strai

5 explosive details from The Washington Post's damning report on the Russia hacking  

On Friday, The Washington Post published an extraordinary, comprehensive report of the Obama administration's actions in the face of mounting evidence that Russia severely affected the U.S. presidential election last year.

Sean Spicer explains Trump lied about tapes to make Comey think he'd 'better tell the truth'  

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer made an on-camera appearance Friday on Fox News to discuss President Trump's recent admission that he has no tapes of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey. Spicer denied Democrats' claims that Trump had falsely indicated on Twitter that he'd recorded his conversations with Comey to "intimidate" the FBI director. Spicer said that actually, by making these claims, Trump was pursuing his truth-finding mission — not, say, lying to coer

The coming crisis  

This is the editor's letter in the current issue of The Week magazine. The most telling aspect of a crazed partisan's 50-round assault on Republican lawmakers last week was that it was not all that surprising. Horrifying, yes. Shocking, no. Mass shootings have become as commonplace in this country as wildfires; partisan hatred has reached a fever pitch unseen since the 1960s, and perhaps the 1850s. Millions of people despise the other political tribe with a visceral passion, and the other tribe

Does Republicans' 'Better Care' act make health care better? This GOP senator says 'it depends on how you define better.'  

In an interview Friday on Fox & Friends, Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) refused to say whether Senate Republicans' new health-care bill, called the Better Care Reconciliation Act, actually makes the nation's health-care system better. Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy noted that the Senate bill, which was unveiled Thursday, "gets rid of a lot of taxes." "Ultimately it's got to be cheaper and it's got to be better," Doocy said. "Is it?" Cassidy agreed that it was cheaper, but he wouldn't say whether it

Obama and Trump both promised peace. They delivered war.  

There's an old political joke that goes like this: "They told me that if I voted for Goldwater, we'd be at war in Vietnam within a year. Well sure enough, I voted for Goldwater and now a year later we're at war in Vietnam!" Everything old is new again. Try this one: "They told me that if I voted for Clinton, we'd be at war with Syria within a year. Well sure enough, I voted for Clinton and less than a year later, we're at war in Syria!"

America's police departments need to stand trial  

I've been thinking about Robocop lately. In that landmark 1987 dystopian satire by Paul Verhoeven, the titular character is actually the scrappy B-team's alternative to the main crime-fighting product being developed by the corporation: a terrifying fully-automated peacekeeping machine with obvious military applications being test-driven against America's criminal class. When we meet the ED-209 enforcement droid, though, it fails its first test, in the corporate boardroom. An employee is told t

The Kellys moved to their home in Belleville, Illinois, last July, and Brian and Dan loved doing yardwork together. At first, that's what Brian wanted to do with Cravens.

Where are all the missing leftist voters?  

If there's one thing that members of the American left believe as an article of unshakable faith, it's that they constitute the country's true silent majority. You can hear a profession of this faith every time a mainstream Democrat disappoints at the ballot box: "If only socialist Bernie Sanders had been the nominee in 2016, he would have beaten Donald Trump." "If only the corrupt, plutocratic, consultant-heavy, and overly cautious DNC had run true progressives in this year's special elections

The 142-page bill includes deep cuts to Medicaid and the elimination of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate to acquire health insurance.

The Senate health bill is a scathing indictment of the Republican Party  

Too often, we think of politics as a game, losing ourselves in the personalities and the strategies and the winning and losing. But the reason it matters in the first place is that all of our lives are affected by politics, by who holds power and what decisions they make. And in those decisions, lawmakers reveal themselves. They show us what — and who — is important to them. Republicans and Democrats aren't just opposing teams, like the Yankees and Red Sox. They represent two alternate visi...

His comment "didn't go over well across Iowa, where the rapid growth of the state's wind energy industry has been a bipartisan success story," The Associated Press writes. It's Friday.

Out on Friday, the half-hour comedy about the founding of TV's Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling comes to us courtesy of Liz Flahive and Orange is the New Black's Carly Mensch, with Jenji Kohan as an executive producer. Based on a real all-women wrestling show that started in 1986, the result is an ensemble comedy with tons of '80s nostalgia and griminess. This is a world before Instagram. There are no succulents,

9 Trump promises the GOP's 'Better Care' act breaks  

Senate Republicans on Thursday released their 142-page ObamaCare replacement, optimistically titled the "Better Care Reconciliation Act," after the party's leadership faced criticism for writing the document entirely behind closed doors. While President Trump has quietly implored Republican lawmakers to make their approach to health care less "mean," and to give the bill "more heart," the White House is apparently supportive of "Better Care," much as the administration got behind the House's na

Trump reveals that while he loves 'all people,' he doesn't want 'a poor person' running the economy  

President Trump didn't entirely stick to the script Wednesday night in Iowa, peppering his hour-long speech with off-the-cuff remarks about witch hunts, his anti-wind turbine views, and how he doesn't want "a poor person" in charge of the economy. "I love all people," he said. "Rich or poor. But in those particular positions, I just don't want a poor person. Does that make sense?" Trump was referring to hiring people like former Goldman Sachs CEO Gary Cohn as his chief economic adviser, despite
