The Teen Who Brought Gay Pride To Mike Pence's Hometown

When 18-year-old Erin Bailey decided to put on a Pride festival for her senior project, she expected maybe 50 people would show up. But she happens to share her hometown of Columbus, Indiana, with Vice President Mike Pence--a vocal opponent of LGBTQ rights--and her idea quickly blew up, becoming a symbol of resistance in a largely conservative region. We followed Erin on the day of the festival, and met other members of the community who spent years making an event like this possible.

Rand Paul calls GOP colleagues hypocrites

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) took to the Senate floor to criticize a spending bill that he says adds billions of dollars to the US deficit without debating amendments to the bill, effectively blocking a key vote that would avoid a government shutdown. Senate leaders have no plans to give Paul a vote on his amendment so that means a shutdown, for at least some period of time, is likely, even though the votes are there in the Senate to pass the deal. Paul's amendment deals with restoring budget caps or not suspending the debt ceiling or some combination of those two...

FBI Director Chris Wray upended the White House's stated timeline of information about disgraced aide Rob Porter, as he outlined when the agency briefed officials on the matter. The White House was repeatedly briefed on the FBI's background investigation into the former White House staff secretary that uncovered allegations of domestic abuse before those allegations became public, Wray said. "I can't get into the content of what was briefed to the White House ... What I can tell you is that the FBI submitted a partial report on the investigation in question in March. And then a completed background investigation in late...

FBI agent quits over political attacks against bureau

FBI special agent Josh Campbell says he's turned in his badge so he can publicly voice his concerns over the politicization of the bureau by Republicans in Congress and the Trump administration. "FBI agents are dogged people who do not care about the direction of political winds," former FBI special agent Josh Campbell, who was announced Monday as a CNN law enforcement analyst, wrote in a New York Times op-ed. "But to succeed in their work, they need public backing. Scorched-earth attacks from politicians with partisan goals now threaten that support, raising corrosive doubts about the integrity of the FBI that...
