Beto O’Rourke apologises for campaign joke about wife raising their children ‘sometimes with my help’Democratic presidential contender Beto O’Rourke acknowledged making mistakes as a teen and as a candidate on Friday, responding to criticism of his campaign rhetoric towards his wife as well as writings he produced online when he was young. Mr O’Rourke made the comment at multiple campaign stops during his first swing through Iowa, including earlier on Friday, eliciting laughs each time, but he also drew criticism as being insensitive to the challenges faced by single parents raising children. Mr O’Rourke also said he was “mortified” when he reread the violent fiction he wrote as a teen, which received fresh attention on Friday after a Reuters report outlined his involvement in a hacker group as a teen.

Giuliani says Trump pursued Moscow tower throughout '16, raising questions

Giuliani says Trump pursued Moscow tower throughout '16, raising questionsU.S. President Donald Trump pursued a business deal to erect a tower bearing his name in Moscow throughout 2016, his attorney said on Sunday, raising new questions for congressional investigators looking into possible ties between the president and Russia. Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said he may have continued to pursue the project and had discussions about it with his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, until as late as October or November 2016, when Trump was closing in on his election victory against Democrat Hillary Clinton. The Moscow deal ultimately did not materialize but Giuliani’s remarks suggest that Trump’s discussions about the project with Cohen may have dragged on months longer than had been publicly known.

Obamacare Thrown Out by Judge, Raising Insurance Uncertainty

Obamacare Thrown Out by Judge, Raising Insurance UncertaintyThe decision Friday finding the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional comes at the tail end of a six-week open enrollment period for the program in 2019 and underscores a divide between Republicans who have long sought to invalidate the law and Democrats who fought to keep it in place. The White House said the ruling will be put on hold during an appeals process that’s destined to go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor in Fort Worth agreed with a coalition of Republican states led by Texas that he had to eviscerate the Affordable Care Act, the signature health-care overhaul by President Barack Obama, after Congress last year zeroed out a key provision — the tax penalty for not complying with the requirement to buy insurance.
