Today 00:32 GMT

Wall Street’s top regulator on Thursday asked Congress to expand its power to recover funds for investors burned by bad actors.

Today 00:32 GMT

While national Democrats have celebrated the President Trump-inspired surge of activist energy coursing through the party in their efforts to take control of the House, many of those same leaders have moved to tame that energy, from Colorado to Massachusetts to New York, when it has turned against them.
