Sen. Lindsey Graham said it was "impossible" for the Republican Party to progress without Donald Trump being its leader. Sen. Lindsey Graham said it was "impossible" for the Republican Party to progress without Donald Trump being its leader and said those within the party who criticized him would "wind up getting erased." "The most popular Republican in America is not Lindsey Graham, it's not Liz Cheney, it's Donald Trump," Graham told Fox News on Monday. And to try and erase Donald Trump from the Republican Party is insane. Some senior Republican figures including Sen. Graham have suggested that Trump and his politics are integral to the party.

Liz Cheney may be done with former President Donald Trump, but her impending ouster from House Republican leadership is a clear sign, party insiders say, that the GOP isn't done with Trump. "The Republican Party is no longer a 'conservative' party. "I've always liked Liz Cheney, but she's made a determination that the Republican Party can't grow with President Trump. And some Republicans say kicking Cheney off the leadership team is likely to give her an even bigger platform. Some Republicans say that the episode is inconsequential to voters and that it will be forgotten by the time the midterms arrive.

In the last week, Trump tried to reframe language around "the big lie" — which has been used to describe his claims about a stolen election — and made reference to "vote dumps." This past week alone, Trump released about a half-dozen statements questioning the legitimacy of last fall's election. And the message from people who want to get rid of Liz Cheney is to say 'it's just time to focus on the future and move on.' Cheney could be voted out of her leadership position — one tasked with leading House GOP messaging — as early as Wednesday. If you look at polls, there's a whole group of folks that agrees with Liz Cheney.

Larry Hogan, R-Md., criticized those within the GOP who insist they need to double down on keeping former President Donald Trump as its leader despite his loss in 2020, saying that it's part of a “battle for the soul of the Republican Party." “It bothers me you have to swear fealty to the dear leader or you get kicked out of the party. “We’ve got to get back to winning elections again and we have to be able to have a Republican Party that appeals to a broader group of people,” Hogan said. “We had the worst four years we’ve had ever in the Republican Party losing the White House, the House of Representatives and the Senate." Now, I would argue there are some who still see him as the messenger of those policies,” Cassidy said of Trump.

Final language on those measures that would be incorporated in a compromise bill between lawmakers from both sides hasn’t yet been set. And central issues concerning the prosecution and liability of individual police officers remain to be resolved, the people said. President Biden has called on Congress to pass legislation in the coming weeks, ahead of the one-year anniversary of Mr. Floyd’s death on May 25. The congressional effort is being led by Sen. Tim Scott (R., S.C.), who sponsored a GOP bill, and Rep. Karen Bass (D., Calif.), who sponsored a Democratic bill, as well as Sen. Cory Booker (D., N.J.). They, along with Sens Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) and Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) and Reps. Josh Gottheimer (D., N.J.), Brian Fitzpatrick (R., Pa.) and Pete Stauber (R., Minn.), are seeking to find compromise legislation that can pass both chambers.

Biden has a narrow window of opportunity to prevent a new nuclear crisis with Iran. To restore the 2015 nuclear deal, Biden needs Congress' support, including that of hawkish Democrats. There is no path to resolving those important issues that does not begin with a restoration of the 2015 agreement that Trump violated. Iranians celebrate in Tehran after Iran reached a nuclear agreement with the US and other world powers, April 2, 2015. Biden needs a solid foundation for further negotiations with Iran to try to secure a follow-on deal that strengthens and lengthens the original nuclear agreement and advances America's interests in the region.

Former President George W. Bush called for police reform in the wake of the Derek Chauvin verdict. Bush said Americans must learn there needs to be police reform — but there also needs to be police. Former President George W. Bush called for police reform following the guilty verdict of ex-Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin, convicted in the death of George Floyd. "There's no question there needs to be police reform," Bush said. We just elected a two-term African-American president," Graham said, referring to former President Barack Obama, who was in office from January 2009 to January 2017.

Former President George W. Bush expressed optimism that the Republican Party will "govern again." Former President George W. Bush said he believes the Republican Party will win in future elections if its members embrace traditional ideals and curb the "white Anglo-Saxon Protestantism." Asked about the state of the Republican Party, Bush told "The Dispatch Podcast" he believes there's potential to win in the upcoming midterm elections and the 2024 presidential election. "If the Republican Party stands for exclusivity — it used to be country clubs, now it's white Anglo-Saxon Protestantism — then it's not going to win anything," Bush said. Other Republicans have also predicted a GOP win in the future elections — and plan to use Trump's help to get there.

CLEVELAND — An Ohio group that specializes in nudging suburban women toward progressive candidates will launch a national podcast and expand into other states — an effort to maintain the coalition that helped elect President Joe Biden and other Democrats. Red, Wine and Blue plans to replicate its digital and social media targeting strategies in Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Exit polls from the 2020 election found that Biden beat former President Donald Trump decisively among suburban women, an outcome Republicans feared after they lost seats in the House two years earlier. Suburban women, Pepper added, are “clearly the very high-growth part of the left side of politics.”Red, Wine and Blue began dabbling outside Ohio politics after the 2020 elections. And Clark, who represents the Atlanta suburbs, said Red, Wine and Blue’s efforts deserve some credit for flipping the two Senate seats in Georgia.

REUTERS/Joshua RobertsA bipartisan group of U.S. lawmakers on Thursday started talks on a police reform bill, the morning after Democratic President Joe Biden urged senators and representatives to act before the May 25 anniversary of George Floyd's murder by a Minneapolis policeman. Republican Senators Tim Scott and Lindsey Graham, Democratic Senators Dick Durbin and Cory Booker and Democratic Representative Karen Bass were among those tasked with reaching a consensus on a policing bill, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and two Democratic legislative aides said. Scott also introduced a policing bill last year, but it was blocked by Democrats who said his approach relied too much on incentives and too little on mandating changes. Scott has proposed making it easier for victims of police violence to sue law enforcement agencies, rather than the officers themselves. Bass has said it is important for victims to be able to sue individual officers as well as police, sheriff's and other departments.

The Senate voted to restore regulations on methane gas that leaks into the air from U.S. oil and gas production, reversing a Trump-era policy and giving a boost to the Biden administration’s goal of reducing emissions. Methane is a component of natural gas, which has grown in popularity as a fuel. Scientists have determined that methane, while emitted in smaller amounts into the atmosphere than carbon dioxide, is more potent in trapping the earth’s heat. The oil-and-gas lobby initially fought methane regulations but has recently eased up on that effort. Top producers— Royal Dutch Shell PLC, Exxon Mobil Corp. , BP PLC—have said they support methane regulations as they face pressure from investors on climate issues.

The U.S. Senate on Wednesday voted to reverse former President Donald Trump's move to weaken Obama-era regulations designed to reduce climate-changing methane emissions from oil and gas fields. In a briefing before the Senate vote, Schumer said the vote was one of the most important steps Congress can take to fight climate change. Trump's effort to dismantle the rule was a victory for the oil and gas industry, which comprises nearly 30% of U.S. methane emissions. Smaller oil and gas companies and fossil fuel lobbyists who supported Trump's rollback have argued that methane regulations are too expensive. Major oil and gas companies like BP, Shell and Exxon, who have promoted natural gas as a cleaner fuel than coal, have voiced support for methane regulation.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) speaks during a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., U.S., April 20, 2021. While most legislation needs 60 votes to advance in the 100-seat Senate, the reconciliation process allows for a simple majority. "More targeted," Manchin, a key vote in the closely divided Senate, told CNN's "State of the Union" program, referring to a bill that would incorporate internet broadband, roads and water infrastructure needs. Asked if he would back another bill with other related spending through a process called reconciliation, Manchin said "no." Democrats passed Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill using reconciliation over Republican opposition in March, handing the president his first major legislative success.
