Elijah Cummings could turn out to be Trump’s worst nightmare based on the Baltimore resident’s powerful position in Congress, his widely-praised recent media performances and shifts in the zeitgeist that have thrust Cummings into the symbolic role of be new best hope to rein in Trump.
President Donald Trump and his business organization are suing Rep. Elijah Cummings — the U.S. House oversight committee chairman — alleging the Baltimore Democrat crossed a constitutional line with a subpoena to the president’s longtime accountant that seeks years of financial statements.
Gov. Larry Hogan will speak at a "Politics & Eggs" series at the invitation of the New Hampshire Institute of Politics — fueling speculation he has political ambitions beyond Maryland. The Republican governor has said he's open to considering a run against President Donald Trump.
University of Maryland alumnus Eric Swalwell, a four-term San Francisco Bay Area congressman who has grown into a cable TV fixture as a slashing and unremitting critic of President Donald Trump, formally announced Monday his long-shot bid for the 2020 Democratic nomination.
Why does Trump want to wait to formulate his health care plan? Could it be that, as with many of his pronouncements on issues — like climate change, foreign relations, and tariffs — he has no clue or plan?
I would like to ask some cogent questions of Mr. Mueller. None of these is a partisan question. Democrats, Republicans, and independents alike all should all be asking them because of the unprecedented assault on our electoral system that was devised and executed by the Russian military.
“We have a tendency to categorize people. We say, ‘I’m not going to hang with you because your black. I’m not going to hang with you because you’re Jewish,” he told them. “What we’re trying to do is represent what it feels like to be in somebody else’s shoes.”
If Special Counsel Robert Mueller or other investigators produce damning evidence about Trump, would he resign to save himself or family members from disgrace or jail? Or will he avoid being so confronted, having found another, more effective fixer than Michael Cohen?
Waiting for Mr. Mueller to prove himself a savior may not pan out for the simpler reason that he can't find what doesn't exist. To say that Mr. Trump was morally capable of colluding with Russia is not the same thing as saying that he did.
We are told the Mueller investigation will be sent to the Attorney General any day now. We are also told that the report does not have to be made public. As a tax payer and former federal law enforcement officer, I strenuously object
President Trump got a taste of the Nancy bPelosi style in their recent Oval Office encounter. He was expecting the San Francisco elitist. He got the Baltimore street fighter. The speaker and her gavel will be Mr. Trump’s worst nightmare.
One of our biggest media failures has been in the way we are framing the shutdown and, as a result, leading citizens to think about it. We are again taking a hugely important and complicated story of American life and reducing it to personalities embedded in a conflict-driven narrative.
Maryland Sen. Chris Van Hollen said Wednesday that the departure of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein would threaten Robert Mueller's Russia investigation at a time when the integrity of the Justice Department "is under assault" by President Donald Trump.
The investigation of President Trump by Robert Mueller is the most potent narrative in American life. It is nothing short of a struggle for democracy and the American soul. When someone asks you why we in the media spend so much time on it, that's why.
Yet again, we are faced with another major Trump related story and another tale of two very different news realities. The last one involved the use of tear gas on migrants at the border. This one involves the Friday court filings by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
