From THE HILL:
Vanity Fair faced sharp criticism on Wednesday from supporters of Hillary Clinton after the magazine posted a video with “New Year’s resolutions” for the former presidential candidate that included retiring from politics.
A video posted on the magazine’s Twitter account Tuesday featured Vanity Fair writers suggesting new hobbies for the 2016 Democratic nominee, including “knitting” and taking “more photos in the woods.”

Dear Senator Gillibrand,
Please consider this my letter of resignation from the Democratic Party. I’ve been a Democrat ever since I was old enough to vote. It is with a heavy heart that I must resign, because I cannot possibly meet the new purity standards.
From NBC News:
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., threw his support behind the Republican tax plan Thursday, boosting the bill’s chances of passage.
McCain said that while the Senate bill is “far from perfect,” he believes it will “enhance American competitiveness, boost the economy and provide long overdue tax relief for middle class families.”
The Maverick added, “But my wife Cindy inherited a Budweiser fortune, so fuck all that shit about working together and gimme those tax cuts!!”
From Politicus USA:
On Tuesday, when asked about the senatorial race in Alabama between Democrat Doug Jones and Republican Roy Moore, who’s been accused of sexual assault by numerous women, President Trump responded, “We don’t need a liberal democrat in that seat.” He added, “Roy Moore denies it— that’s all I can say.”

From THINK PROGRESS:
Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ memory seemed to lapse repeatedly when asked by lawmakers to recall details about a March 2016 meeting, where Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos reportedly proposed a meeting between then-candidate Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.
Sessions, who was testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, said he had “no recollection” of the meeting until he saw news reports, which jogged his memory.

From the Sun Sentinel:
On her fourth day at the center of a struggle with President Donald Trump and his chief of staff, Congresswoman Frederica Wilson said Friday she has no regrets about anything she’s done or said this week — and said she’s amazed at what’s transpired.
Wilson received major vindication Friday with video showing White House Chief of Staff John Kelly was completely wrong about claims he made about the South Florida congresswoman.
