William Cummings USA TODAY Published 4:15 PM EST Jan 13, 2019 President Donald Trump reacted sharply to a New York Times report published Friday, which said that after he fired FBI director James Comey, the bureau began to investigate whether Trump was "knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence." "Are you now or have you ever worked for Russia, Mr. President?" Fox News host – and vocal Trump supporter – Jeanine Pirro asked Trump during a phone interview Saturday night. "I think it's the most insulting thing I’ve ever been asked," Trump replied. "I think it's the most insulting article I’ve ever had written. And if you read the article, you'd see that they found absolutely nothing." The article said, "No evidence has emerged publicly that Mr. Trump was secretly in contact with or took direction from Russian government officials." But Trump felt the Times' headline was unfair and … [Read more...] about Trump slams New York Times report on FBI fear he worked for Russia

Josh Hafner USA TODAY Published 4:14 PM EDT Oct 3, 2018 A bombshell report Tuesday pulled back the curtain on President Donald Trump's mythos as a self-made billionaire, discovering a dubious trail of complex tax evasion by which Fred Trump funneled at least $413 million in today's dollars to his son, "including instances of outright fraud," the New York Times found. And that "small loan of a million dollars" that Trump claims his dad gave him to launch his business empire? It was closer to $61 million, the Times found, or at least $140 million in today's dollars. That's one of several jaw-dropping findings in the report, and now the New York Department of Taxation is "vigorously pursuing" a review of the Trumps' activities. Trump sought to downplay the report's findings through multiple channels, calling it a "very old, boring and often told" story on Twitter. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders described it as a matter settled "many decades … [Read more...] about Trump taxes: New York Times report on how Trump made millions from dad
Jon Campbell Albany Bureau Published 12:05 p.m. UTC Aug 30, 2018 HEMPSTEAD - Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Cynthia Nixon engaged in a fiery debate Wednesday evening that saw the candidates spar over government corruption, transparency and who would be better to battle President Donald Trump. Cuomo, a second-term incumbent, pledged not to run for president in 2020 during the debate at Hofstra University with Nixon, a fellow Democrat who directly and repeatedly challenged Cuomo's record on progressive issues during the hour-long moderated discussion. The two candidates engaged in testy exchanges over who was telling the truth and what their personal finances show, but neither appeared to commit any major gaffes in what is the first and only scheduled debate of the primary. The primary election is set for Sept. 13. Here's a rundown of some of the issues they debated: Battling Donald Trump It didn't take long for Cuomo to shift the conversation to his … [Read more...] about Cuomo vs. Nixon: Battle heats up over who will lead New York’s Trump ‘resistance’

Gabe Lacques USA TODAY Published 3:19 p.m. UTC Jun 25, 2018 The New York Mets' free fall is well into its third month, the heady early days of April and their 11-1 start now looking like a hallucination in a season gone terribly awry. The 10 weeks since have exposed the Mets' flawed roster, odd organizational culture and created the sense this is a squad stuck in the middle - far from contention, not inclined to rebuild. And now, there's no stopping the momentum as they sink toward the bottom of the major leagues. The Mets rank a season-low 26th in USA TODAY Sports' Major League Baseball power rankings, and while it's amusing now to consider they reached as high as No. 4 back in that glorious April, it's jarring to ponder the teams now above them. Thanks to the Mets' six-game losing streak and the Cincinnati Reds' seven-game winning streak, the Reds vaulted the Mets in our rankings, despite a payroll some $50 million less than New York's opening-day … [Read more...] about MLB power rankings: Just how low can the New York Mets go?
