    CNN’s Dana Bash asked Vice President Kamala Harris about possible consequences for Supreme Court justices who “misled” on the issue of abortion rights during their confirmation hearings. The Supreme Court justices who effectively overturned the landmark s Roe v. Wade decision in a 5-4 decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, to a person, told Congress during their confirmation hearings the same thing: that Roe is settled super-duper precedent, and that they would respect stare decisis, or variations on those themes. On Monday’s edition of CNN’s The Situation Room, the second part of Dana Bash’s exclusive interview with VP Harris aired. During one segment, Bash appeared to suggest some sort of punishment for those justices, noting senators have accused them of having “misled” during those confirmation hearings, and pointing out “they were under oath” at the time. The VP told Bash she “never believed them,” but skirted the issue of consequences: BASH: You were a senator when justices — with now Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh testified upon many issues, including, obviously, Roe at their confirmation hearings. HARRIS: Yeah. BASH: Now, Justice Gorsuch said it had been...
    NEW YORK -- The company behind the TurboTax tax-filing program will pay $141 million to customers across the United States who were deceived by misleading promises of free tax-filing services, New York's attorney general announced Wednesday.Under the terms of a settlement signed by the attorneys general of all 50 states, Mountain View, California-based Intuit Inc. will suspend TurboTax's "free, free, free" ad campaign and pay restitution to nearly 4.4 million taxpayers, New York Attorney General Letitia James said.James said her investigation into Intuit was sparked by a 2019 ProPublica report that found the company was using deceptive tactics to steer low-income tax filers away from the federally supported free services for which they qualified - and toward its own commercial products, instead."For years, Intuit misled the most vulnerable among us to make a profit. Today, every state in the nation is holding Intuit accountable for scamming millions of taxpayers, and we're putting millions of dollars back into the pockets of impacted Americans," James said in a statement. "This agreement should serve as a reminder to companies large and small that...
    On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.,” Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) said that the White House “deliberately misled” on the number of Americans in Afghanistan, and that he considers the Americans still in the nation hostages, with the administration “paying ransom in the form of aid.” Waltz said, “Well, they didn’t get it wrong, Stuart, I think they’re — they deliberately misled the American people. You’ll notice, each time they put this quick little caveat, about a hundred that wanted to leave. Well, show me all these Americans that were there, trapped behind Taliban lines, that didn’t want to leave. The fact was, they had their families there, and I would love to ask Jen Psaki or Blinken or all the others if they would leave their family members behind, of course they wouldn’t. That doesn’t mean they get categorized as not deserving or not wanting to leave. So, it was deliberately misleading.” He later added, “I consider them hostages, absolutely. And what the administration is doing is paying ransom in the form of aid. And...
    On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) reacted to the riots at the Capitol and said that “so many people said this would be the last stand, the last fight, the last effort to win back the republic. It’s our 1776. When you use that kind of language, you should not be surprised that people tend to believe it.” And said that President Donald Trump and everyone else objecting to the Electoral College should go to those who stormed the Capitol and say “that they misled them.” Crenshaw said, “This is not what you do and call yourself a patriot. There’s nothing to be proud of here. This is not okay. It should be condemned to the fullest extent.” He added, “So many hyped up this day as this day of reckoning, as this big win that would happen. So many told — so many people said this would be the last stand, the last fight, the last effort to win back the republic. It’s our 1776. When you use that kind of...
    The two Republicans on Wayne County’s elections board who changed their votes to certify the county’s results on the condition of an audit now say that they were misled by the Democratic vice chair, who originally promised that one would occur but now says that their compromise was non-binding. In separate affidavits signed Wednesday night, Monica Palmer and William Hartmann claimed that they were pressured to flip and vote to certify Wayne County’s election, and accused Democrats of going back on a promise to audit the vote count in Detroit. “I rescind my vote,” Palmer wrote in the affidavit. “I fully believe the Wayne County vote should not be certified.” Hartmann signed a similar affidavit, according to The Washington Post. Though Palmer and Hartmann originally voted against certifying the results for all of Wayne County, the most populous county in Michigan, their initial qualms had to do with election disparities in Detroit. The two said that the official list of who voted did not match the number of ballots counted, but agreed to certify the results after Jim Kinloch, the...
    Three of the four residents of New York City public housing whose criticisms of Mayor Bill de Blasio were used in a video at the Republican National Convention said they were never told their comments were to be showcased in that manner. The New York Times reported Friday that Claudia Perez, Carmen Quinones and Manny Martinez didn’t know that their comments from an interview with Lynne Patton were going to be used in support of President Donald Trump. Quinones, a Democrat, told the Times that Patton — a Trump administration appointee with the Department of Housing and Urban Development — had called her and asked her to bring together some people to speak about the city’s housing authority and their concerns, but that she was never told it would be part of the convention.
    NEW YORK (AP) — Three of the four residents of New York City public housing whose criticisms of Mayor Bill de Blasio were used in a video at the Republican National Convention said they were never told their comments were to be showcased in that manner. The New York Times reported Friday that Claudia Perez, Carmen Quinones and Manny Martinez didn’t know that their comments from an interview with Lynne Patton were going to be used in support of President Donald Trump. Quinones, a Democrat, told the Times that Patton — a Trump administration appointee with the Department of Housing and Urban Development — had called her and asked her to bring together some people to speak about the city’s housing authority and their concerns, but that she was never told it would be part of the convention. In the almost 2 1/2-minute video, four tenants are interspersed with clips of Trump and de Blasio. The tenants are heard criticizing the New York City mayor and praising the Trump administration’s efforts. Perez told the Times she meant what she said...
    (CNN)Republican and Democratic leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee told the Justice Department last July they believed several people close to President Donald Trump, including his son Donald Trump Jr., son-in-law Jared Kushner and former adviser Steve Bannon, may have misled them during testimony in the committee's Russia investigation, the Washington Post reported.The newly detailed July 2019 letter from the senators adds to a list of concerns members of Congress sent to special counsel Robert Mueller and other prosecutors about the Russia investigation and testimony related to it, raising the possibility the Justice Department may have considered additional criminal probes regarding possible lies to Congress than what was previously known. But it's unclear whether the Senate Intelligence Committee's suspicions -- that the testimony they heard conflicted with what others such as former deputy campaign chair Rick Gates said under oath -- amounted to any further investigation by the Justice Department, let alone any ongoing investigations. Referrals, where members of Congress flag suspicions to federal prosecutors, were relatively common in the Russia investigation and not all lead to formal investigations."I have...

Doug Mills-Pool/Getty Images A Maine brewery canceled an official Trump event after owners said they were unaware that the visit was listed as an official campaign event, Bangor Daily News reported.  Brad and Nancy Nadeau, owners of Stars and Stripes Brewing, said they were told that campaign members and Laura Trump were going to stop at the establishment for drinks and get pizza nearby, according to the report. But they were surprised to see their brewery included on Trump's online event listings.  "I tried so hard to keep this brewery positive, and we haven't had any backlash because we don't do anything that's negative," Brad Nadeau said to Bangor Daily News. "But when it comes to politics, people are so far on either side."...
