"There's ongoing litigation, and we'll take it step by step, but yes, he is still [serving as deputy finance chair]," McEnany told the online news-streaming service Cheddar.

Weekly reminder that the RNC either doesn't understand that keeping Cohen in this position looks horrible, OR knows Cohen could sink the entire ship.

In a copy of the proposal obtained by The Daily Beast, Cohen said that the book would detail his experiences serving as the Trump “family fix-it guy,” and would include his observations about everything from the 2016 campaign to what the proposal described as “the unfortunate saga involving Stephanie Clifford, also known as ‘Stormy Daniels.’”

A major loss to readers everywhere.../s

What's Trump's play here? Veto it and face horrible media/political backlash OR sign it and maybe lose that sweet little $500 million Chinese investment.

My bet is on a veto because Trump

Can he veto it? It passed the house 351-66/ the senate banking comity like 23-2/ and if it passes the senate with more than 2/3rds, will he even be able to veto it?

Good point, maybe he does something similar to the Russian sanctions and signs but doesn't act on anything.

White House officials had at first arranged for only Mr. Nunes to be briefed. But Republican Senate leaders, including Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, and Richard M. Burr of North Carolina, the Intelligence Committee chairman, pressed the White House to change the audience to the so-called Gang of Eight, the select bipartisan group with whom the government’s most sensitive intelligence is shared.

Good on them for forcing a bi-partisan briefing, even if that should've been the default option. I still am curious on how the separate meeting with Nunes/Gowdy/Ryan will be different.

In one incident, she said, Freeman "kept trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear." He never successfully lifted her skirt, she said -- he would touch it and try to lift it, she would move away, and then he'd try again.

Not a good look Morgan


In all, 16 people spoke to CNN about Freeman as part of this investigation, eight of whom said they were victims of what some called harassment and others called inappropriate behavior by Freeman. Eight said they witnessed Freeman's alleged conduct. These 16 people together described a pattern of inappropriate behavior by Freeman on set, while promoting his movies and at his production company Revelations Entertainment.

Man I love this dude, but this is looking well-sourced. C'mon Morgan.


According to Melas, who was six months pregnant at the time, Freeman, in a room full of people, including his co-stars Arkin and Caine, shook Melas' hand, not letting go while repeatedly looking her up and down and saying more than once a variation of, "I wish I was there." She says he also said to her, "You are ripe."

Like WTF

Edit3: Statement from Morgan Freeman

Freeman told Sky News in a statement: "Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy. "I apologise to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected - that was never my intent."
