Trump says he's nominating a woman to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And he's doing it this week. So we're holding an 'emergency' reader poll. Vote soon, since the decision could come any day. The poll will be open until Trump announces his pick.

General Michael Flynn is now accusing federal prosecutors of acting in “bad faith” during the Russia probe and is moving to withdraw his guilty plea. This is unfolding as he faces a term of six months in prison.

The investigation, launched more than three years ago, determined that those 38 people were “culpable” in 91 cases of sending classified information that ended up in Clinton’s personal email, according to a letter sent to Republican Sen.

Axios ran an article this morning about how the Democratic black women running for Congress "feel slighted by Democrats." 43 black women have decided to run for seats in the chambers, but only Lauren Underwood has received "backing of the national campaign organization."

Maybe the Democrats are just like the GOP and care more about winning than sex and race as they've led many to believe.
