A federal judge in Washington has ruled against President Donald Trump in a financial records dispute with Congress, saying he cannot block the House subpoena of financial records.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler is threatening to hold former White House counsel Don McGahn in contempt if he does not testify publicly today before Congress.

Standing in front of thousands of supporters at a rally in north central Pennsylvania, Trump leveled multiple attacks on former Vice President Joe Biden, who leads Trump in an early poll in the state.

“Don’t forget: Biden deserted you,” Trump told the crowd as he was ending his speech at a campaign rally in Montoursville. “He left you for another state.”

Despite backlash from Trump and Republican leadership, Rep. Justin Amash has renewed his calls for impeachment and explained why the president’s supporters are wrong about his innocence.

“I’ve known him and he’s been against Trump from the beginning,” the president told reporters outside the White House when asked about Amash’s comments. “He probably wants to run for some other office. I don’t think he’d do very well. He’s been a loser for a long time.”

Trump lashed out at The New York Times, disputing the paper’s reporting on his relationship with Deutsche Bank and launching into a broader criticism of the news media.

Sen. Christopher Coons, a Delaware Democrat, said that several of his Republican colleagues had “privately expressed concerns” about the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russia’s election interference and the Trump campaign.

Michael Cohen told lawmakers one of Trump’s personal attorneys asked him to falsely testify to Congress and told him the president was considering granting him a pardon to “shut down” the Russia investigation, according to transcripts of Cohen’s two private interviews with the House Intelligence Committee.

Cohen also said that he had discussed the possibility of a “global pardon” with one of the president’s attorneys – a move that Cohen said was meant to “shut this whole thing down.”

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos used her personal email accounts for government business in “limited” cases and did not always properly save messages, according to an internal investigation released yesterday.

The Environmental Protection Agency plans to change the way it calculates the health risks of air pollution, a shift that would make it easier to roll back a key climate change rule because it would result in far fewer predicted deaths from pollution.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s pipe-dream presidential campaign has quietly opened a headquarters in Downtown Brooklyn that’s operating with a tiny staff and limited resources, he revealed.

New presidential candidate de Blasio already has spent far more time in key battleground states this year than in Albany, despite the fact that a battle over renewing the NYC rent laws is looming, his public schedule shows.

De Blasio launched a probe of the NYC taxi market following a damning report that claimed industry leaders duped drivers with predatory loans and artificially inflated the costs of cab medallions for years, leading to their eventual collapse.

The state attorney general’s office also said it had opened an inquiry into more than a decade of lending practices that left thousands of immigrant taxi drivers in crushing debt. The efforts marked the government’s first steps toward addressing a crisis that has engulfed the city’s yellow cab industry.

NYC Department of Education brass are targeting a “white-supremacy culture” among school administrators by disparaging ideas like “individualism,” “objectivity” and “worship of the written word.”

The NYCHA elevator chief who was ousted after an anonymous complaint alleged that he was racist and misogynistic is suing the embattled public housing agency and two of its executives over his firing.

Getting branded by NXVIM was “the most painful thing I’ve ever experienced,” Lauren Salzman testified in court.

NXIVM’s accused cult leader, Keith Raniere, played twisted sex games with his top female lieutenants — and even planned to build a basement dungeon to cage some of them, Salzman said.

Salzman also testified about how women who joined the clandestine sect, called The Vow or D.O.S., made secret commitments to become lifelong “slaves” to Raniere.

State lawmakers pushing the release of taxes filed in Albany by Trump – a New York State resident – have offered changes to their legislation to more narrowly target whose taxes would be eligible to be obtained by three congressional committees if they are conducting a “legitimate task” of Congress.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo warned people living along Lake Ontario to prepare for flooding, while wading into an international debate over how lake levels are managed.

Cuomo declared a state of emergency in eight counties, and put the National Guard on standby to prepare for flooding.

No evacuation of residents has been ordered, but the governor warned during his visit to Olcott that widespread flooding could hit lakefront communities like it did two years ago. The state of emergency was also put in place in Cayuga, Jefferson, Monroe, Orleans, Oswego, St. Lawrence and Wayne counties.

Critics worry about applying universal rent control – a New York City solution – to upstate communities, where the rental housing stock can be dramatically different and where the economy is still far from robust in many areas.

NYC prosecutors’ changing stances and a recent court ruling appear to be shifting the balance toward lifting the state ban on so-called gravity knives.

A bill that would ban the manufacturing and distribution of guns constructed through 3D printing technology is heading to Cuomo’s desk.

The Rockville Centre diocese — one of the largest in the country with an estimated 1.5 million Catholics — has resisted publishing the names of priests credibly accused of abuse.

Assemblyman Phillip Steck is working with a colleague in the Senate to reintroduce a bill reinstating the state’s stock transfer tax and directing the proceeds to statewide infrastructure.

New York’s laws on parole could be transformed by the end of June if Democrats are successful in pushing through a series of reforms aimed at reducing the number of people incarcerated.

State Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia would not be in favor of a Buffalo Board of Education that was appointed by the mayor, saying: “I just don’t think that would be a better system.”

New York’s Republican Party Chairman Ed Cox won’t be seeking reelection, taking a post with Trump’s re-election campaign and paving the way for Erie County GOP Chairman Nick Langworthy to fill the top post.

Cox, who has served as state chair for a decade, agreed to step aside in the face of a growing rebellion by county chairs, particularly in the more conservative areas in upstate New York.

Langworthy, poised to become the youngest state Republican Party chair ever, has been out-maneuvering his rival, Cox, for a while now.

After years of planning – and weeks of debate – Ciminelli Real Estate Corp. got the green light from the city for its plans for a new fresh foods market and more than 200 affordable apartments on a city-owned parking lot in Buffalo.
