Rambling Trump calls an emergency in speech that goes on and on and on

Today 10:49 GMT

When Donald Trump awarded himself emergency powers on Friday, it was with an all too familiar mix of falsehoods, fearmongering and shoutouts to his favourite rightwing broadcasters.

Trump sniffed frequently, and at times his speech sounded slurred, as he bragged of his achievements, aired his grievances and offered an alarming preview of his 2020 campaign pitch. There were random segues from illegal immigration to relations with President Xi.

Today 08:03 GMT

A federal judge on Friday placed some limits on what the longtime Donald Trump confidant Roger Stone and his lawyers can say publicly about his criminal case brought by the special counsel in the Russia investigation.

Mark Penn: To get Trump, FBI and Justice Department officials trampled the Constitution

Today 08:04 GMT

The most egregious anti-democratic actions ever taken by the what can now fairly be called the Deep State are confirmed with the publication of fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s new book detailing how the FBI and Justice Department plotted to remove President Trump from office for firing FBI Director James Comey.

Justice Department and FBI officials spied on U.S. citizens with false warrants, gave a pass to one presidential campaign with a predetermined investigation, investigated another political campaign on the basis of no verified evidence, and illegally leaked information on investigations.

The average tax refund and the total amount of refunds issued declined for the second straight week, potentially intensifying a political flashpoint seized by Democrats as proof that the Republican-written tax law hurts the middle class.

Today 10:49 GMT

President Trump on Friday shared a highlight reel of Democratic lawmakers looking less than pleased at the State of the Union, with the track of R.E.M.'s melancholy "Everybody Hurts” echoing in the background.

“Madame Speaker, members of Congress, the state of our union is strong,” Trump says, the video first zooming in on Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., with a blank stare; and cutting to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., who seemingly lets out a large sigh and eye roll when listening to Trump.

Michael Goodwin: Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace – and we owe him a big, fat thank you

Today 08:04 GMT

McCabe’s version of events dovetails with a New York Times report last September that Rosenstein met with McCabe and others and offered to wear a wire in meetings with Trump to get incriminating information, a hint that McCabe was the prime source for that story.

McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016.
