Ultimately, Trump doesn’t know who to believe following decades-old allegations made one month before the Dec. 12 election, according to his aides. One Republican senator urged Alabama voters to reject Moore in the special election even if that could mean ceding the seat to a Democrat and narrowing the GOP’s 52-48 Senate...

FBI Report On Black ‘Extremists’ Raises Fears Of Targeting

[ad_1] WASHINGTON (AP) — An FBI report on the rise of black “extremists” is stirring fears of a return to practices used during the civil rights movement when the bureau spied on activist groups without evidence they had broken any laws. The FBI said it doesn’t target specific groups, and the report is one of many its intelligence analysts produce to make law enforcement aware of what they see as emerging trends.
