Syria is free from Islamic State control, the White House announced Friday.

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters aboard Air Force One that the territorial ISIS caliphate had been “100 percent eliminated” from the war-torn Middle Eastern country, marking a major victory for President Donald Trump that had eluded his predecessor. But it’s also a victory that may be in name only.

Sanders’ announcement came paired with the trademark map the president has brought out multiple times in recent days, showing the eradication of the caliphate over the last two years of Trump’s presidency.

Trump marked the milestone with celebratory tweets Friday afternoon, though he appeared to acknowledge what military experts agree on: That despite the terrorist group’s official territorial losses, lingering fighters continue to pose a threat.

“ISIS uses the internet better than almost anyone, but for all of those susceptible to ISIS propaganda, they are now Continue reading “White House claims victory in freeing Syria from ISIS control”

<![CDATA[
A federal appeals court on Tuesday ordered a mystery corporation owned by a foreign country to comply with a subpoena that appears to be from special counsel Robert Mueller.

The three-page opinion released by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit is the latest twist in an opaque dispute that POLITICO and other media outlets have tied to Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The ruling offers the intriguing detail that the entity fighting the Mueller subpoena is a foreign government-owned company, not a specific individual, as many experts had speculated.

But the ruling also still leaves many important aspects of the fight shielded from public view, including the kind of work done by the company, the name of the country that owns the firm and just what information is being sought. The order also offers no direct confirmation that the matter Continue reading “Mueller appears victorious in mystery subpoena dispute”

The questions clouding last month’s election in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District appear likely to result in that rarest of political beasts: a do-over.

After the final vote count in North Carolina, Republican Mark Harris leads Democrat Dan McCready by 905 votes — a difference of about a third of a percentage point. But the state Board of Elections has declined to certify the results of the race over allegations of voter fraud—including the sensational claim that Harris employed a man who collected absentee ballots that hadn’t been completely filled out and sealed in a county where the Republican won a larger-than-expected share of the mail-in vote.

As Democrats threaten to refuse to seat Harris in the House, both parties are reportedly planning for a new election — with the pressing question of whether that would include new primaries. The GOP-controlled state legislature passed a bill last week mandating new Continue reading “Here’s What Happened the Last Time There Was An Election Do-Over”
