Hours before the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee announced his shocking claims about the Trump transition team on Wednesday morning, he practically disappeared. Rep. Devin Nunes was traveling witha senior committee staffer in an Uber on Tuesday evening when he received a communication on his phone, three committee officials and a former national security official with ties to the committee told The Daily Beast.

Veterans Affairs On Tuesday, President Donald Trump surprised a group of startled tourists in the White House basement, took meetings with senators, and met with leaders of the AFL-CIO and the Boy Scouts.

I always forget this between elections, but it’s true: We really do learn from these unbearable gruel-a-thons who these candidates are at their core, and the results usually reflect our collective conclusions about them.

Safe Harbor It was 32 years ago, last week, than I was pulled from a dimly lit hallway into a darkened high school science lab. I did not yell, I did not scream as he pressed me against the wall and forced his tongue into my mouth.
