Sorry, the midterms aren’t over. These 6 seats are still in play.

The U.S. midterm elections concluded almost two weeks ago, but six races still aren’t decided. While Democrats handily retook the House, they still have a chance to extend their lead pending the outcome of the final six races, and possibly snatch back a seat in the Senate.

The White House says it will ban CNN’s Jim Acosta again next week

The White House is not backing down over Jim Acosta’s press pass, and plans to ban the reporter again once the current 14-day restraining order expires, CNN said Sunday.

Finns are baffled by Trump “raking” comments — including the country’s president

Finland's president said Sunday he did not tell Donald Trump “raking” forest floors would prevent wildfires — contradicting the U.S leader, whose claim has been roundly mocked in the Northern European country.

Donald Trump said Sunday he won’t listen to audio of the “violent, very vicious and very terrible” death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, but he’s sticking by Saudi Arabia anyway.

If Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has any say, college campuses and K-12 facilities will soon ramp down sexual harassment investigations and offer more rights to the students accused of misconduct, according to proposed regulations released Friday.

Congress has two ways it might try to save Mueller. Both have huge downsides.

Congress has two ways it might try to save Mueller. Both have huge downsides.

A number of Senate Republicans have long argued that there’s no need for any fancy new legislation to protect special counsel Bob Mueller’s Russia investigation, because President Trump was never really going to fire him. Then Trump swapped his old attorney general, Jeff Sessions, last week for Sessions’ deputy, Matthew Whitaker, who’s been openly hostile…

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is open to supporting Pelosi: “There’s an opening, for sure”

Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shook up the Capitol this week by cheering on a group of climate activists protesting inside the office of Rep. Nancy Pelosi.
