As the Justice Department follows his order to investigate the origins of the Russia probe, President Donald Trump began laying the groundwork to jail his perceived enemies.

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday apologized for comments he made saying impeachment could be viewed as a "partisan lynching."

The comments from a 1998 interview were reported after Biden said it was "abhorrent" and "despicable" for President Donald Trump to refer to impeachment as a lynching.
