WASHINGTON/DUBAI, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Whether or not Tehran and Washington accept a European Union "final" offer to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, neither is likely to declare the pact dead because keeping it alive serves both sides' interests, diplomats, analysts and officials said. "We are in no rush," said a senior Iranian official who spoke on condition of anonymity. Therefore, time is not of the essence for Iran," said a second senior Iranian official. read moreDANGLINGThe lack of better policy options for Washington, and Tehran's view that time is on its side, could leave the deal dangling. "It is unclear whether Iranian leaders have decided not to revive the deal or have not made a definitive decision, but either way, continuing this limbo period likely serves their interests," Rome said.

Fox News host Eric Shawn asked if Trump tried to sell the classified documents found at Mar-a-Lago. He wondered if Trump tried to "sell or share" documents "to the Russians" or "the Saudis." Shawn's speculation comes amid Trump's growing ire against Fox News programs like "Fox & Friends." Did former President Trump try to sell or share the highly classified material to the Russians or to the Saudis, or others?" Separately, Doocy told House GOP chair Elise Stefanik that the FBI's raid was "kind of a big deal" given that agents were looking to retrieve classified documents "related to nuclear weapons."

"The FBI and DHS have observed an increase in threats to federal law enforcement and, to a lesser extent, other law enforcement and government officials following the FBI's recent execution of a search warrant in Palm Beach, Florida," the bulletin said, according to a CBS report. U.S. agencies have identified "multiple articulated threats and calls for the targeted killing of judicial, law enforcement, and government officials associated with the Palm Beach search, including the federal judge who approved the Palm Beach search warrant." read moreThe FBI declined to confirm the existence of the bulletin on Sunday, but said "The FBI is always concerned about violence and threats of violence to law enforcement." Let’s be clear: this is the direct result of irresponsible, inflammatory rhetoric demonizing law enforcement from right-wing politicians and commentators."

Donald Trump arrives at Trump Tower the day after FBI agents raided his Mar-a-Lago Palm Beach home, in New York City, U.S., August 9, 2022. A search warrant released last week after the unprecedented search showed that Trump had 11 sets of classified documents at his home, and that the Justice Department had probable cause to conduct the search based on possible Espionage Act violations. "The Justice Department should "show that this was not just a fishing expedition, that they had due cause to go in and to do this, that they did exhaust all other means," Rounds said. The Department of Justice did respond to a request for comment on the FBI affidavit. "This is going to be up to the Justice Department to make a decision about what happened here, why it happened, and if it rises to the level of a crime," Klobuchar said.

REUTERS/David 'Dee' DelgadoWASHINGTON, Aug 14 (Reuters) - Republicans stepped up calls on Sunday for the release of an FBI affidavit showing the underlying justification for its seizure of documents at former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home. A search warrant released last week after the unprecedented search showed that Trump had 11 sets of classified documents at his home, and that the Justice Department had probable cause to conduct the search based on possible Espionage Act violations. "The Justice Department should "show that this was not just a fishing expedition, that they had due cause to go in and to do this, that they did exhaust all other means," Rounds said. He said it was "most disturbing" that Trump continued to hold the classified documents after the Justice Department sought their return.

Mastriano and Oz have not made any firm commitment to campaign together or host joint fundraisers. "It’s an awkward marriage," Morgan Boyd, a Republican county commissioner in Lawrence County, which went for Trump by 30 points in 2020, said of Mastriano and Oz. The official said the RNC had worked more closely with the Oz campaign but described its efforts as "business as usual" so far. In June, the Oz campaign told The Associated Press that Oz "supports the Republican ticket in Pennsylvania" and "looks forward to seeing (Mastriano) out on the trail this summer." And that’s OK.

The FBI recovered 11 boxes of classified documents during its raid of Mar-a-Lago on Monday. A Trump lawyer told the Justice Department in June there were no classified materials on the property, The New York Times reported. The statement was given to the Justice Department after a counterintelligence official had visited Mar-a-Lago on June 3, the outlet reported. The court documents revealed the Justice Department was investigating possible violations of three laws that related to the handling of government documents, including part of the Espionage Act. The written statement reported by the Times provides additional insight into the events that led to the Justice Department taking such an unprecedented step.

By contrast, in the last midterms four years ago, Democrats spent less than $1 million on ads that mentioned abortion-related issues in the same time period. The 2022 advertising figures do not include money spent on the recent anti-abortion rights referendum in Kansas. The landslide defeat of that measure, particularly in a traditionally conservative state, has only further emboldened Democratic strategists and candidates. There are risks to focusing so heavily on abortion at a moment when Americans are also expressing intense anxiety over the economy. More abortion ads have aired in the Senate races in North Carolina, New Hampshire, Arizona and Washington — and even in Connecticut and Maryland, two states with secure Democratic incumbents.

It didn’t work, partly because too many Republicans had worked on it and wanted to pass it. And maybe Mr. Biden’s original, sweeping Build Back Better plan failed not because of obstructionism but because the country wasn’t sold on everything in it. For the past two years, lawmakers have paid workmanlike attention to a series of bipartisan bills on things that have been on the country’s to-do list for years. Eight of their bills have become law, and more could pass in the lame duck session. A 50-50 Senate meant that much of what passed had to be bipartisan, with at least 10 Republicans in support.

Rand Paul, a Republican senator for Kentucky, called for the repeal of the Espionage Act on Saturday. Following the Mar-a-Lago raid, the DOJ is investigating if Trump violated the Espionage Act. "The Espionage Act was abused from the beginning to jail dissenters of WWI," tweeted Paul. A conviction under the Espionage Act carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison. "Rand Paul is now calling to repeal the Espionage Act after the world learned Donald Trump is under investigation for violating it," Booker tweeted on Saturday night.

Joe Manchin is among the Democrats most responsible for blocking much of Biden's economic agenda. "Every now and then, Joe Manchin reminds us he's a Democrat," GOP Sen. Kevin Cramer said. That quip from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez of New York in early March summed up the depth of Democratic frustration with perhaps its most stubborn member: Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia. Their economic agenda was shattered and they hadn't truly begun sorting through the wreckage of their Build Back Better plan.

Liz Cheney will continue her fight against Trump even if she loses her Wyoming primary on Tuesday. "We'll see what happens, but I don't think she's gone by any means. Though if Cheney loses, she is widely expected to stay in the spotlight and continue her fight to rid the Republican Party of Trump. Some are floating possibilities like a presidential candidacy or a top post in a future Republican administration. I think Cheney would be a great opportunity to bridge the gap between Democrats, Republicans, independents."

The number of Americans who owe at least $1 million in federal student loans has been growing over the past few years. Many Republican lawmakers have slammed the idea of canceling student debt for all federal borrowers because the highest earners, like doctors and lawyers, would benefit. Interest on student loans is why many borrowers experience difficulty eliminating their debt, or even keeping up with their payments. There are no limits on loans borrowers can take out through grad PLUS, loans exclusively available to graduate and professional students. Under Secretary of Education James Kvaal said in June that spiraling debt from PLUS loans was "definitely something we're watching."

The events of this week, albeit without the revelations of the unsealed search warrant, gave Trump a 10-point boost over DeSantis. On Saturday, Insider's Darren Samuelsohn and Charles R.

Trump was initially "upbeat" about the FBI Mar-a-Lago raid as he believed it would benefit him, per The Washington Post. GOP support began to wane following reports that Trump might have taken classified documents about nuclear weapons. In response, Trump's formerly buoyant mood has at times turned dark, the report says. Sources told The Washington Post that Trump believed the FBI raid would benefit him as it looked like the Justice Department had overreached. Following this shift in support, Trump's buoyant mood has at times turned dark, The Post reported, according to people who had been around him.

The Biden administration, the report said, failed to prioritize evacuating U.S.-trained Afghan commandos and other elite units in the shambolic Aug. 14-30, 2021, U.S. troop pullout and evacuation operation at Kabul international airport. But hundreds of U.S.-trained commandos and other former security personnel and their families remain in Afghanistan amid reports the Taliban have been killing and torturing former Afghan officials, allegations the militants deny. Those former personnel "could be recruited or coerced into working for one of America’s adversaries that maintains a presence in Afghanistan, including Russia, China, or Iran," the Republican report said. In another finding, it said the administration waited until hours before the Taliban seized Kabul to make key evacuation decisions. "Very little was done to prepare for a Taliban takeover of the country" or for the evacuation, it said.

Larry Hogan, a Trump critic, said the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago has been a "win" so far. Hogan argued that the search has ginned up GOP base supporters, who still largely back Trump. The Republican governor said he was "happy" to see the Trump search warrant unsealed last week. Larry Hogan of Maryland, one of former President Donald Trump's sharpest GOP critics, said on Sunday that so far, the FBI's search of the former president's Mar-a-Lago residence has been a "win" for the ex-commander-in-chief. I would say this week it was actually a win for Donald Trump," Hogan told co-anchor Jonathan Karl.
