    Democratic lawmakers oppose Jeff Sessions in blistering Senate testimony

    ... Rep. John Lewis, a Democrat from Georgia and a leader in the civil rights movement, said Sessions’ call for “law and order” sounded similar to what he heard growing up in Alabama from pro-segregation officials who wanted to prevent black people from voting.

    ... Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, who became the first sitting senator to testify against a colleague’s nomination Wednesday, also said he was bothered by Sessions’ emphasis on law and order; “America was founded heralding not law and order, but justice for all,” Booker said ...

    Trump says won't divest from his business while president

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President-elect Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would maintain ownership of his global business empire but hand off control to his two oldest sons while president, an arrangement that watchdogs said would not prevent conflicts of interest in the White House.

    Trump told a news conference he would resign from all positions overseeing his hotels, golf courses and hundreds of other businesses and move his assets into a trust to help ensure that he will not consciously take actions as president that would benefit him personally ...

    Good job Cornell.

    Lindsey Graham tears into NAACP president for favoring liberal Democrats

    NAACP President Cornell William Brooks did not mince words when testifying against Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) at his attorney general confirmation hearing before the Senate on Wednesday. Sessions "evinces a clear disregard, disrespect, and even disdain for the civil and human rights of racial and ethnic minorities, women, the disabled, and others who suffer from discrimination in this country," Brooks said, even as Sessions protested such claims ...

    Head of ethics agency calls Trump's plan to step away from businesses 'inadequate'

    Donald Trump's plan to remove himself from his businesses without divesting ownership doesn't even come close to solving the problem of potential conflicts of interest, the director of the Office of Government Ethics said Wednesday.

    "We can't risk creating the perception that government leaders would use their official positions for profit," Walter Shaub said at the Brookings Institution ...

    A Russian Word Americans Need To Know: 'Kompromat'

    ... Kompromat is straight from the old Soviet playbook and has often involved photographs and videos — real or fake. Russians often use it for internal battles, though it is also deployed to blackmail foreign diplomats serving in Russia ...
