WASHINGTON - Rep.

The Minnesota Democrat, who fired back at Trump in a tweet Wednesday, has faced a widespread backlash for suggesting that Israel's allies in U.S.
Alicia Grant believes she was wife No. 3. She married Michael Middleton in New Hampshire in 2013 after meeting him on the Internet.

WASHINGTON - The threat of another government shutdown receded Tuesday as lawmakers lined up behind a fragile border security compromise and President Donald Trump predicted that federal agencies would stay open. Trump did not publicly endorse the bipartisan agreement, which offers just a fraction of the money he's sought for a U.S.-Mexico border wall.

WASHINGTON - The Senate Tuesday passed the most sweeping conservation legislation in a decade, protecting millions of acres of land and hundreds of miles of wild rivers across the country and establishing four new national monuments honoring heroes from Civil War soldiers to a civil rights icon. The 662-page measure, which passed 92 to 8, represented an old-fashioned approach to dealmaking that has largely disappeared on Capitol Hill.

The 2016 nominating conventions had recently concluded and the presidential race was hitting a new level of intensity when Paul Manafort, Donald Trump's campaign chairman, ducked into an unusual dinner meeting at a private cigar club a few blocks away from the campaign's Trump Tower headquarters in Manhattan. Court records show Manafort was joined at some point by his campaign deputy, Rick Gates, at the session at the Grand Havana Club, a mahogany wood-paneled room with floor-to-ceiling windows offering panaromic views of the city.

Mark Kelly, the retired astronaut and husband of former Rep.

Influence Salubi was at work when he got the call from the nanny telling him that something was wrong. His 8-month-old daughter had been happy and healthy when he had left the house hours earlier but when he rushed home, she was lifeless. Her feet were cold. Her arms went limp. Milk poured out of her nose and mouth. "What did you do?! What happened?!" Salubi recalled screaming to the nanny before trying to suck out the liquid streaming from his child's face.
WASHINGTON -- Key lawmakers expressed guarded optimism late Monday, Feb. 11, that they would be able to avoid another government shutdown, saying they were making progress in a series of late-stage meetings meant to resolve disputes about immigration rules.
