It begins... I just talked to a Democratic activist who's putting together a challenge to a safe-seat Democrat who's opposing Pelosi. One of many to come.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is looking into Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr.’s role in seeking to build a Trump Tower skyscraper in Moscow three years before their father's presidential campaign, sources told Yahoo News in an investigation published Thursday.

The president's elder daughter, now-White House adviser Ivanka, and his eldest son Don Jr. reportedly worked to build Trump Tower Moscow for several years, ending their efforts in 2013, sources told Yahoo News.

The news of Ivanka and Don. Jr's involvement in a possible Trump building in Russia deal comes the same day the president's former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty in court for misstatements he made to Congress while testifying about the effort to build a Trump Tower in Moscow during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Mueller's charging documents against Cohen mentioned that Trump's former fixer lied about having “briefed [Trump] family members” who worked at the Trump Organization about the possible Moscow project. Ivanka was an executive with the organization before she became a White House adviser and Trump's son is still an executive there.

Nancy walked the Russia v Health Care line like a boss

She knew Russia was not foremost on most people’s minds to the extent health care is but understood that Mueller’s disciplined work would eventually bear results. Well done, Nancy. Well done.

NC-09: Republicans investigated for 'irregularities'

An investigator for the N.C. Board of Elections seized absentee-by-mail ballot requests from Bladen County shortly after the Nov. 6 election as part of its scrutiny of Mark Harris' win over Dan McCready in the 9th district congressional race.

But an elections law expert says Bladen County's results for the 9th district GOP primary also deserve attention, calling them “unusual."

In May, Harris narrowly upset incumbent Robert Pittenger in the Republican primary by 828 votes.

Harris' win was powered, in part, by a surge of absentee-by-mail ballots from Bladen County, according to data from the N.C. Board of Elections. In the May primary, 22 percent of the votes cast in Bladen County in the Harris-Pittenger race were cast by absentee-by-mail, and Harris was the overwhelming winner of those ballots.

Harris won 96 percent of the 456 absentee-by-mail votes in Bladen, but won only 62 percent of all other votes in the county, according to state Board of Elections records.
