During a live interview with Carly Fiorina on Wednesday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell fretted over the Republican presidential candidate’s attacks on Hillary Clinton: “You were really the breakout star according to all reports from Iowa last weekend, the biggest crowds, especially when you went after Hillary Clinton. Is that because you’re the only woman in the Republican field, that you feel enabled to go after her?” Fiorina explained: “I think when 82% of the American people now believe that there is a professional political class more interested in preserving its own power and privilege than it is in serving the American

Indicted former House Speaker Dennis Hastert was paying an individual from his past to conceal sexual misconduct, two federal law enforcement officials said Friday. One of the officials, who would not speak publicly about the federal charges in Chicago, said “Individual A,” as the person is described in Thursday’s federal indictment, was a man and that the alleged misconduct was unrelated to Hastert’s tenure in Congress. The actions date to Hastert’s time as a Yorkville, Ill., high school wrestling coach and teacher, the official said. “It goes back a long way, back to then,” the source said. “It has nothing to do with public

House Democrat Rep. Carolyn Maloney (N.Y.) has introduced a bill that would require gun owners to carry liability insurance. The Firearm Risk Protection Act, unveiled Friday, would require gun buyers to have liability insurance coverage before being allowed to purchase a weapon, and would impose a fine of $10,000 if an owner is found not to have it. Service members and law enforcement officers, however, would be exempt from the requirement. “We require insurance to own a car, but no such requirement exists for guns," Maloney said in a statement. "The results are clear: car fatalities have declined by 25

He is also accused of lying to the FBI about the withdrawals. Hastert was indicted on two counts, both carrying a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Following a Chicago grand jury’s decision to indict former House speaker Dennis Hastert on charges that he violated federal banking laws by paying $3.5 million to an unnamed person to cover up “past misconduct,” rumors have abounded about what exactly that misconduct might be. The Washington Post reports now that Hastert “was trying to cover up decades-old allegations that he sexually molested a male victim to whom he recently paid hush money in violation of federal banking laws, according to a federal law enforcement official briefed on the case.” The misconduct, according to the unnamed source, dates from Hastert’s days

LONGMONT, Colo. - A Longmont charter school is being criticized for blocking a class valedictorian from delivering a graduation speech in which he planned to come out as gay. Evan Young, 18, told the Daily Camera that he agreed to make some suggested changes to his speech but wouldn´t remove the disclosure about his sexuality. Young says he wasn´t notified until just a few minutes before the May 16 ceremony that he wouldn´t be allowed to speak or be recognized as valedictorian. Twin Peaks Charter Academy High School says Young didn´t submit a revised version of the speech and that
