There’s a big-game-hunting controversy afoot, aside from that of the targeting of prominent men with sex allegations. President Trump, after reversing a 2014 Obama-era ban on the import of elephant trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia, put the decision on hold in the face of withering criticism.
With reports that a special counsel may investigate her role in UraniumGate, Hillary Clinton accused President Trump of “an abuse of power,” claiming that he is moving toward a “dictatorship” by his “politicization of the Justice Department." She added that she is "not concerned," but she seems to be going pretty far out of her way to confront something she is "not concerned" about.
The Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), passed in 2001 after the September 11 attacks, has been been abused by three presidents to justify more than three dozen military interventions in some 20 nations. Now, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle say that is more than enough.

Questions have been raised about the high-school yearbook used to make a case against Roy Moore, but the accuser's lawyer, Gloria Allred, is refusing to allow an independent analysis of Moore's signature — before the election.
On a near-party line vote of 227-205, the House of Representatives passed a major tax overhaul bill on November 16 that would cut taxes more than $1.4 trillion over 10 years.
After eight weeks of listening to more than 50 witnesses in the corruption trial of New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez (D) and his friend, Florida eye surgeon Salomon Melgen, the jury couldn’t reach a verdict.

A young man accused of hacking Boston Children’s Hospital to save the life of a teen girl claims that court documents show that he is the victim of persecution by prosecution. The documents — provided to The New American — also certainly show that the federal magistrate in his case has a severe conflict of interest and yet has not recused herself.
