Pundits are watching for fireworks between Sanders and Warren, who are fighting over the same progressive voters. They’re also waiting to see if candidates like O’Rourke and Hickenlooper can stand out enough to even remain in the race after Tuesday’s debate.

There’s also a matter of Buttigieg, who has raised a hefty campaign war chest but can’t seem to break out of polling in the single-digits.

Either way, the debate will get underway at 8 p.m. and will be hosted by CNN’s Jake Tapper, Dana Bash and Don Lemon. Watch below:

So you’re not just thinking about a theoretical political principle while Trump is betraying his base — it’s that Trump is inviting, if he were to risk a serious conflict with Iran, a potential debacle in so many ways.”

A CNN panel couldn't stop laughing as Republican Scott Jennings rushed to the side of former press secretary Sean Spicer, who debuted on "Dancing With the Stars" Monday night dressed in a bright-green ruffled shirt and dancing the Salsa.

"No way. What the Hell?" Rye asked the second she saw the video of Spicer.

But Rye, blindsided by the chartreuse, cut in.

Trump is flexing his executive power to brazenly disobey the law — and it looks like he’s going to get away with it

Published

on

What can’t executive power do? If you ask the Trump administration, the answer seems to be almost nothing.

Consider just the news Monday night. We know that the acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire — who was only installed in his position because President Donald Trump forced the rightful successor, Sue Gordon, to resign — is withholding a whistleblower’s report that has been deemed by the inspector general to be both “credible” and “urgent.”
