Opinion: The only way Republicans can lead again

President Donald Trump is conducting an all-out assault on our democracy. There is no other way to look at this. The President lost the election and his legal team has failed to produce evidence of voter fraud. So now President Trump is attempting to convince state legislatures to overthrow the results.

Judges cite John Roberts' opinion in reversing block on Arkansas abortion laws

A panel of federal appeals judges used Chief Justice John Roberts' opinion in the Supreme Court's recent decision protecting abortion access to allow several Arkansas abortion restrictions to go back into effect -- a seemingly counterintuitive outcome that advocates on both sides of the abortion issue had predicted.
