House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday asked President Trump to either reschedule his State of the Union address or hand-deliver his State of the Union remarks to Congress on paper because of the ongoing government shutdown. “Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government… READ MORE

A federal judge ruled Tuesday that former national security adviser Susan Rice and former deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes must answer written questions about the State Department’s response to the deadly 2012 terror attack in Benghazi, Libya, as part of an ongoing legal battle over whether Hillary Clinton sought to deliberately evade public record laws by using a private… READ MORE

Democrats turn down White House invitation for shutdown talks


No Democrats will attend a lunch on Tuesday with President Trump designed to reach an agreement to end the government shutdown and fund a border wall, the White House said.

Trump doubles down on border wall, as polls show voters turning against his shutdown strategy

President Trump used an address Monday to the American Farm Bureau convention to dig in on his call for a border wall, even as new polling indicates most Americans oppose his administration’s strategy of demanding money for the U.S.-Mexico barrier in exchange for ending the partial government shutdown. Speaking in New Orleans, Trump said there was “no substitute” for a… READ MORE

Supreme Court passes on case removing Whitaker as acting AG


The Supreme Court denied an effort to strip acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker’s name from a pending case, swatting down a push to force the justices to send a signal that President Trump’s temporary pick is illegal.

‘Major concerns’: Resolution of border wall showdown not likely to end shutdown

Even if the wall debate is resolved, it’s not necessarily the end of the shutdown that has gone well into its fourth week.

Border security is the big hurdle,… READ MORE

Dems fail to win over more Republicans in push to open government

The Democratic leadership on Friday failed to pick up any additional Republican votes on a spending bill to open the Department of Interior and the Environmental Protection Agency. Only 10 Republicans voted for the measure, leaving the final vote tally at 240-179. The vote is the latest sign that Republicans are digging in their heels to oppose any new… READ MORE

The Memo: Trump moves to brink of emergency declaration

It is more likely than ever that President Trump will declare a national emergency at the border — and that’s just fine with some of his most fervent supporters. Stephen Bannon, the president’s former chief strategist, told The Hill that Trump “wins politically and practically — he uses his powers as a ‘forcing function’” if he makes an emergency declaration.… READ MORE

Trump to declare border emergency unless Congress acts


President Trump signaled Thursday that he will likely declare a national emergency to have the military build his border wall unless Congress negotiates a deal to give him the money. As he departed the White House en route to Texas for a visit to the border he said it “would be very surprising to me” if he didn’t go that… READ MORE

Democrats embrace ports of entry crackdown amid Trump border standoff

Congressional Democratic leaders have embraced the goal of increased border security in their fight with President Trump, proposing measures to harden the U.S. ports of entry — but omitting the barrier they supported five years ago. Those designated border crossings account for roughly 2.5 percent of the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border. The proposal also represents a small fraction of the security… READ MORE
