Senate Republicans tiptoe around Acosta, largely defer on his future

Senate Republicans tiptoe around Acosta, largely defer on his future

Some Republicans in Congress are looking for more answers about Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta’s conduct as U.S. attorney, but they’re not joining calls by Democrats that he step down because of a generous plea deal he cut with accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein. One Republican member of the Judiciary Committee said Tuesday that Acosta should explain his handling of the plea agreement with Epstein. Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana said he would get out ahead of whatever may emerge from any inquiry from the Justice Department, but Senate Republicans more broadly are taking a...

COVID-19 wastewater efforts confront long-term questions

COVID-19 wastewater efforts confront long-term questions

In February 2020, environmental engineers Aaron Bivins and Kyle Bibby launched an informal collaborative with a few fellow researchers, hoping to share tips and strategies on monitoring wastewater for signs of the burgeoning COVID-19 pandemic. By April 2022, that group ballooned to more than 1,300 analysts and professionals worldwide, with a Slack account promoting new research and making introductions — all part of an effort to facilitate early information-sharing that didn’t exist at the federal level. “I’ve been on calls with teams all over the country, just kind of kicking ideas around...

More non-Spanish speaking migrants are crossing the border

More non-Spanish speaking migrants are crossing the border

When a 6-year-old Indian migrant girl named Gurupreet Kaur was found dead in the Arizona desert by Border Patrol agents in June, the tragedy surprised many — mostly because of where the girl was from. While many of the physical dangers faced by immigrants at the southern border are widely known, public attention has focused on the surge of Central Americans. But Customs and Border Protection said they’ve seen a recent rise in crossings by people from many nations, apprehending migrants from 50 countries, including India, China, Bangladesh, Egypt, Romania and Turkey. Migration from India...

House interrupting recess to act on Postal Service ‘sabotage’

House interrupting recess to act on Postal Service ‘sabotage’

Speaker Nancy Pelosi is calling House lawmakers back to Washington this coming week to vote on legislation to bar the U.S. Postal Service from implementing changes to “operations or level of service.” A vote could come as soon as Saturday, Aug. 22, according to a senior Democratic aide. That would mean a rare weekend session that would interrupt the traditional summer recess. The House wasn’t originally scheduled to return for floor votes until Sept. 14, barring the need to take up a coronavirus relief bill before then. In a “Dear Colleague” letter Sunday evening, Pelosi said that the...

Jan. 6 committee’s criminal referral spat was avoidable — and unnecessary

Jan. 6 committee’s criminal referral spat was avoidable — and unnecessary

ANALYSIS — Evidence. The word was uttered 41 times Monday during the Jan. 6 select committee’s second much-anticipated June hearing and over and over by its members during a weeklong cable TV blitz. But we have not heard that much direct evidence. Put a different way: The panel of seven Democrats and two politically excommunicated Republicans have yet to turn the hours of video footage from police officers’ body cameras, Capitol security cameras and rioters’ own self-incriminating social media posts into dots that actually connect.At least not yet.It is telling that panel members are not...
