    Who is Ashley Kavanaugh? 3 things to know about the Supreme Court nominee's wife

    As Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has continued to deny the sexual misconduct allegations levied against him in recent days, his wife, Ashley, has remained by his side.

He's decent, he's kind, he's good,” Ashley said. “I know his heart. This is not consistent with Brett.” Brett Kavanaugh has been accused of sexually assaulting a teenager at a house party when he was in high school as well as exposing himself to another woman while at a Yale University party.

    There's a Florida connection to the latest reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will be out of a job—changing the U.S. official in charge of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference during the 2016 election. U.S. solicitor general Noel Francisco, who would be next in line to lead the investigation if Rosenstein leaves his post or is fired, once worked for President George W. Bush's team during the 2000 Florida recount that ultimately resulted in Bush becoming president over then-Vice President Al Gore.

    Trump's tax cuts are not a 'sugar high' but a multiyear boost to the economy and stocks: CIO

    The Fed has it more right than the markets this time, says pro    35 Mins Ago | 06:34 President Donald Trump's corporate tax cut will have a lasting positive impact on economic growth and the stock market, the chief investment officer of Haverford Trust told CNBC on Tuesday. "When you've had tax reform like this, it is not a sugar high. It has a multiyear effect," Haverford's Hank Smith said in a "Squawk Box" interview. Smith said the 2001 tax cut under President George W. Bush was a "sugar high" by focusing mainly on relief to families. The 2003 plan, which largely benefited businesses, "had a multiyear impact, and that is where we are today," he added. Critics of Trump's corporate tax cut,

    Happy Birthday Executive Order 12866!

    American politics and policies have changed a lot over the course of the last 25 years. We've elected four presidents with dramatically different philosophies and styles—from Bill Clinton to George W. Bush to Barack Obama and now Donald Trump. On regulatory matters, Presidents Obama and Trump couldn't be more opposite, with the former issuing more major regulations during his tenure than any prior president and the latter issuing fewer even than Ronald Reagan. Something in Common? There is one thing, however, that all these presidents have in common—a set of principles and procedures that guides the development of new regulations. They all rely on Executive Order 12866, which President Clinton

    Why you should ask to see your specialist's report card well before a colonoscopy

    It's time for a cultural change in the way Australians passively submit to having a colonoscopy, experts say. With almost a million colonoscopies being performed in the country each year, patients are being urged to ask some hard questions well in advance of the procedure. A colonoscopy involves passing a flexible endoscope into the colon to look for abnormalities including inflammation, cancer and pre-cancerous polyps that could lead to bowel cancer. Dr Katie Ellard, a respected Australian voice in gastroenterology, says once a person is referred by their GP to a colonoscopist – who may be a gastroenterologist or a surgeon – and is about to have the procedure, it can be awkward to ask questions and difficult to act on the answers.

    25th Amendment: What is it and could it be used to remove Donald Trump if he is deemed unfit to serve as President?

    The US Constitution has a built-in mechanism that allows the president’s powers to be transferred to their vice president if they become incapable of discharging them. Both Ronald Reagan and George W Bush used the 25th Amendment to do so temporarily before they were put under medical anaesthesia. The amendment has been floated as a potential means of installing Mike Pence in the Oval Office, as the commander-in-chief continues to lurch from one scandal to the next.
