Democratic Party files lawsuit alleging Russia, the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks conspired to disrupt the 2016 campaign

quote [ "During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found a willing and active partner in Donald Trump?s campaign," DNC Chairman Tom Perez said in a statement.

"This constituted an act of unprecedented treachery: the campaign of a nominee for President of the United States in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the presidency." ]

Now that's how an opposition party behaves. "Unprecedented treachery", well put.

Moderate GOP Rep. Charlie Dent To Resign

quote [ The centrist Pennsylvania Republican was already part of a record number of GOP lawmakers who weren't running for re-election in November, but on Tuesday Dent announced he would step down soon. ]

Too bad - he's actually a decent sort congressman, works with all sides, and pretty sane in in policies. I'm of the mindset that we actually need conservatism as a counterpart to liberalism to make our system work correctly. Although we don't need the racist, crazy variety we are stuck with at the moment.
