Obama Fundraiser Expected to Raise a Record $12 Million President Barack Obama's first campaign event since his declaration on same-sex marriage is tonight at actor George Clooney's home in Studio City. With a combination of high-rolling Hollywood figures and an online sweepstakes, it could be the biggest political fundraiser in US history. That's according to Tina Daunt, contributing editor for politics at the Hollywood Reporter .
Trump, the GOP and the rule of law Conservatives — and some Republicans — are criticizing the President for "the mess he made" in firing FBI Director James Comey. We hear about a potential successor, the possibility of "obstruction of justice" and the constitutional separation of powers.
The free-flowing leaks in the Trump White House President Obama tried to clamp down on leakers, but the Trump Administration is besieged almost as never before. Are the "anonymous sources" partisans or worried professionals? Are they endangering the republic or performing a public service?
Should we 'hack the climate' to fight global warming? The Paris Agreements won't be enough to reverse global warming, whether President Trump pulls the US out or not. Is it time to try altering the atmosphere by what's called "geoengineering?" We hear about unintended consequences, international relations… and ethics.
