  2.’s-fbi-ire-faces-possible-firing/ar-BBKdmcG?li=AA5a8k&ocid=spartanntp Andrew McCabe, a Symbol of Trump’s F.B.I. Ire, Faces Possible Firing WASHINGTON — Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reviewing a recommendation to fire the former F.B.I. deputy director, Andrew G. McCabe, just days before he is scheduled to retire on Sunday, people briefed on the matter said. Mr. McCabe was a frequent target of attack from President Trump, who taunted him both publicly and privately. Mr. McCabe is ensnared in an internal review that includes an examination of his decision in 2016 to allow F.B.I. officials to speak with reporters about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation. The Justice Department’s inspector general concluded that Mr. McCabe was not forthcoming during the review, according to the people briefed on the matter. That yet-to-be-released report triggered an F.B.I. disciplinary process that recommended his termination — leaving Mr. Sessions to either accept or reverse that decision Lack of candor is a fireable offense, but like so much at the F.B.I., Mr. McCabe’s fate is also entangled in presidential politics and the special counsel investigation. He was involved from the beginning in the investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. He is also a potential witness in the inquiry into whether Mr. Trump tried to obstruct justice.
  3. 2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    I would love for the Redskins to be able to draft Nyheim Hines. NFL Draft prospect to know: Nyheim Hines, RB, North Carolina State Here is one intriguing prospect that is tearing it up at the combine. Nyheim Hines — running back, N.C. State Wolfpack 5-foot-9 197 Junior Nyheim Hines was regarded as one of the elite running backs and one of the top-150 prospects coming out of high school in the 2015 class. Despite holding offers from the likes of the Clemson Tigers, Georgia Bulldogs, and Florida Gators, the North Carolina native opted to stay home and play for the Wolfpack. Immediately, Hines became an important element in coach Dave Doeren’s offense. The do-it-all back burst onto the scene in a big way, introducing himself to defenses, fans, and scouts all over the nation this past fall. Used as a wide receiver for much of his first two seasons on campus, Hines finally got the opportunity to show what he can do as a running back. Man, did he make it count. Hines carried the football 197 times for a career-high 1,112 yards and 12 touchdowns. He blossomed into a star at the running back position with his new opportunities, as he was named first team All-ACC for his big 2017 season. Defenses couldn’t stop him as a running back, and he still managed to catch 26 passes for over 150 yards. For all of the success Hines had from scrimmage, the speedster also added an element of burning opponents as a kick returner. Hines returned 88 kickoffs during his collegiate career, totaling 2,171 yards (920 as Fr., 782 as So., and 469 as Jr.) and two scores. Hines returned punts as a junior too — returning 11 punts for 135 yards and a touchdown. Needless to say, Nyheim Hines is a threat to score from any point on the football field.

  6. The Sycophants of Smith (Merged & M.E.T.)

    In one of the news sites that mentioned the trade said that the teams are not allowed to talk publicly about the trade until the league year starts. it stated that the players can comment or announce the trade. it appears that the news about the trade and the contract extension came from either Alex smith or his agent.
  7. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Do the Redskins franchise tag Cousins or Brown now? If they franchise tag Cousins they could try a tag and trade, If they franchise tag Brown then they can make sure he doesn't leave.

    Jalen Samuels the RB from NC State is someone that I hope the Redskins draft> he would be a great asset since he is a good receiving RB. He can also line up as a WR!
  9. There’s a Surprise in the Government Funding Bill: More Tax Cuts By MARGOT SANGER-KATZ and JIM TANKERSLEYJAN. 22, 2018 WASHINGTON — Congress is apparently not done cutting taxes, even after passing a $1.5 trillion tax overhaul last year. The deal struck by Democrats and Republicans on Monday to end a brief government shutdown contains $31 billion in tax cuts, including a temporary delay in implementing three health care-related taxes. Those delays, which enjoy varying degrees of bipartisan support, are not offset by any spending cuts or tax increases, and thus will add to a federal budget deficit that is already projected to increase rapidly as last year’s mammoth new tax law takes effect. The bill to end the shutdown, which funds government operations through Feb. 8 and also includes a six-year reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program, did not move through budget reconciliation, the parliamentary procedure that circumvents filibusters in the Senate. That allowed Republican leaders to include the delays in the health insurance taxes without worrying about their fiscal cost, a move that drew few objections from Democrats.
  10. The *Budget Fight* Thread (Jan 2018 Edition)-

    Senator McConnell said the earliest the Senate can vote to end the Shutdown is 1aM on Monday! Senator McConnell said that will be when the vote will be unless the Democrats allow an earlier vote!

  12. The spending stopgap needs 60 votes to overcome a Senate filibuster. Sen Mccain is unavailable. Sen Rand Paul and Senator Graham voting against it. Senator Graham only wants a couple day CR. Senator Joe Manchin is expected to vote for the bill. Senator Schumer wants DACA and that it why it is being filibustered. The Bill includes a 6 year extension to the CHIP program and postpones the medical device tax and the cadilac health care tax. .
  13. Election 2018 Thread U.S. top court blocks redraw of North Carolina congressional maps Jan 18 (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday blocked a lower court's order for North Carolina to rework its congressional map because Republicans violated the Constitution by drawing electoral districts intended to maximize their party's chances of winning. The conservative-majority court granted a bid by Republican legislators in North Carolina to suspend the Jan. 9 order by a federal court panel in Greensboro that gave the Republican-controlled General Assembly until Jan. 24 to come up with a new map for U.S. House of Representatives districts. Two liberal justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, objected to the high court's action. The Supreme Court's decision to stay the order reduces the chance that the current district lines will be altered ahead of the November mid-term congressional elections. The court offered no reason for its decision.
  14. Senate takes shutdown drama into final day The Senate adjourned Thursday night without resolving the fate of a House-passed funding bill, extending the drama about a possible government shutdown until the last possible day. Government funding will expire after 11:59 p.m. on Friday and Senate leaders will only have 13 hours to negotiate a solution after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) adjourned the Senate without a deciding vote. Democrats say they have the votes to block debate on the four-week government spending measure, which would extend funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for six years and address other priorities. A number of vulnerable Senate Democrats facing tough reelections this year in states won by Trump have said they don't want the government to shut down. If they vote against the four-week House-passed spending stopgap, there will be very little time to come up with an alternative bill to keep federal agencies open. The spending stopgap needs 60 votes to overcome a Senate filibuster.
