12-Feb-2019

All are now out there trying to tell their stories and separate themselves from the pack, but it is Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren who is first out of the gates with a formal foreign policy.

Warren’s meaty article in Foreign Affairs is worth paying attention to, not so much because she is saying anything that others won’t.

John Oliver loudly booed during Stephen Colbert interview for suggesting Trump could be re-elected

Wednesday 11:44 GMT

During an interview with HBO’s John Oliver, the anti-Trump late night host asked his British counterpart and former Daily Show colleague if he’s “feeling good” going into what could be the final two years of Donald Trump’s presidency. Oliver, whose HBO show “Last Week Tonight” returns this week, replied: “I definitely don't have that kind of optimism.

Colbert wrapped up the Trump portion of the interview by asking if the most important thing is to “stay alive till January 21, 2025,” to which Oliver replied: “I think that’s what we all have to do, all of us especially Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”

The US Senate has voted 54-45 confirming President Donald Trump's attorney general pick William Barr to serve in the role for a second time.

Mr Barr, 68, previously held the attorney general title from 1991 to 1993 under Republican President George H W Bush.. Democrats Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona voted in favour of Mr Barr - all three representing more conservative-leaning states.
