Republicans in Congress — some of them, anyway — are finally getting the ball rolling on tax cuts. The rest of the party had better join together to get it done, or they’ll all pay next November. The first move looks pretty obscure: The Senate Budget Committee agreed to allow for tax cuts of up...

Black Employees At Trump DC Hotel's Steakhouse Allege Racial Discrimination

Black employees on Wednesday filed a civil complaint against the Trump Organization and the managing director at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. alleging racial discrimination, the Washington Post reported.

Dominique Hill, Irving Smith Jr. and JaNette Sturdivant, current and former employees at BLT Prime in the luxury hotel, alleged that the Trump Organization and Mickael Damelincourt, the luxury hotel’s managing director, subjected black employees to discriminatory behavior and gave them shifts where they earned less, per the report.

“They started hiring all these people and instead of putting them on day shifts they was giving them night shifts and keeping us on day shift,” Smith Jr. told the Washington Post. “Next thing I know, within the month all the black people were on the day shift.”

Hill told the Washington Post that the hotel opened with 15 or more black employees, but that only four remain.

Hill, Smith Jr. and Sturdivant are seeking $14.5 million in damages, according to the report.

In a statement to the Washington Post, the Trump Organization called the allegations “utterly baseless” and claimed “the plaintiffs worked for a third-party restaurant company that is solely responsible for the direction, supervision, and management of its own employees.”

The company that operates BLT Prime, ESquared Hospitality, said it “wholeheartedly” disputed Hill, Smith Jr. and Sturdivant’s allegations.


Report: Manafort offered to give 'private briefings' on 2016 campaign to Russian billionaire

While he was still serving as Donald Trump's campaign chairman, Paul Manafort sent an email to a Kiev-based employee of his consulting business requesting he tell a Russian billionaire with close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin that if he wanted "private briefings" on the presidential race, Manafort would set it up, several people familiar with the emails told The Washington Post.

Emails on the subject are part of the tens of thousands of documents now in the possession of special counsel Robert Mueller's team. The emails are very vague, and no exact name is ever used, but investigators believe they are referring to Oleg Deripaska, an aluminum magnate and one of the richest men in Russia. There is no evidence Deripaska ever received the message or any briefings, but investigators think this shows Manafort was ready to use his proximity to Trump for his own benefit, several people told the Post.

The Wall Street Journal reports it's been difficult for Deripaska to get visas to come to the U.S. because he might have ties to organized crime in Russia, something Deripaska denies. Deripaska has paid Manafort as an investment consultant, and in 2014 took him to court in the Cayman Islands, accusing Manafort of taking nearly $19 million in money set aside for investments and being unable to tell him what he did with the money or where it is.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani suffers, or benefits, from what the shrinks call “projection” — seeing in other people one’s own faults. “Moderation is the inclination as well as the chosen path of the great Iranian people,” Rouhani told the UN General Assembly Wednesday. This from a man who told supporters back in May, after winning...

Boy, did New Yorkers dodge a bullet when Anthony Weiner first pressed the wrong “send” button on his Twitter feed. That became even more painfully obvious Wednesday when federal prosecutors unveiled new details of the two-time mayoral candidate’s sordid sexting sessions with a 15-year-old girl. This, as they asked Manhattan federal court Judge Loretta Preska...
