Republican congressional candidate in Montana accused of assaulting reporter

| MISSOULA, Mont.

Montana Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte was accused of physically assaulting a reporter on the campaign trail on Wednesday, the eve of a special election to fill the state’s lone seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Ben Jacobs, a political correspondent for the U.S. edition of The Guardian newspaper, said in a Twitter post that Gianforte had “body slammed” him, breaking the reporter’s eyeglasses, at a campaign event in Bozeman.

“There was a local TV crew there when Gianforte body slammed me. Audio is posting soon @GuardianUS,” Jacobs tweeted.

The allegation could not be immediately confirmed, but the candidate countered that Jacobs had instigated an altercation.

Gianforte’s campaign issued a statement saying a physical confrontation with Jacobs occurred when the reporter entered the candidate’s office “without permission, aggressively shoved a recorder in Greg’s face and began asking badgering questions.”

“After asking Jacobs to lower the recorder, Jacobs declined,” the written statement from campaign spokesman Shane Scanlon said. “Greg then attempted to grab the phone that was pushed in his face. Jacobs grabbed Greg’s wrist and spun away from Greg, pushing them both to the ground.”

            <span class="article-divide first-article-divide"></span><p>The statement concluded: "It's unfortunate that this aggressive behavior from a liberal journalist created this scene at our campaign volunteer BBQ." </p><span></span><p>CNN played an audio recording purporting to have captured the sound of the incident, in which a voice believed to be that of Gianforte is heard yelling: "I'm sick and tired of you guys ... the last guy did the same damned thing."</p><span></span><p>After loud scuffling noises are heard, the voice yells: "Get the hell out of here," and another voice, presumably that of Jacobs, is heard saying that Gianforte had just broken his glasses.</p><span></span>

            <span class="article-divide second-article-divide"></span><p>Another political writer, Alexis Levinson, a reporter for BuzzFeed News, who was at the campaign event, tweeted  that Jacobs had walked into a room where a local TV crew was set up for an interview with the Republican candidate.</p><span></span><p>"All of a sudden I heard a giant crash and saw Ben's feet fly in the air as he hit the floor," Levinson tweeted.

Exclusive – Hate the tweets, love the agenda: McConnell on Trump

By Roberta Rampton and Patricia Zengerle
| WASHINGTON

Mitch McConnell, the top Republican in the U.S. Senate, says he could live without the drama surrounding President Donald Trump’s White House, but from a policy standpoint sees the new commander-in-chief as a solid ally in the mode of any president from his party.

McConnell told Reuters that he finds Trump accessible and that they talk regularly, even more frequently than he spoke to the last Republican president, George W. Bush.

While McConnell would not discuss the substance of their conversations, he said the two are able to be frank with one another without it damaging their relationship.

“We have a good relationship. He’s never, as far as I can tell, gotten angry at me – in my presence, anyway. We have a good working relationship,” McConnell said during a roundtable with Reuters reporters on Wednesday.

McConnell, who last week said he hoped to see “less drama” from the White House, said that Trump does not always take his advice.

“He knows, as you all know, that I’ve not been a fan of the tweets and the extracurricular comments. I said last week we could do with a little less drama,” McConnell said.

Cracking a grin, he added, “The reason I’m smiling – obviously, he’s disinclined to take my advice on some things. But it has not impaired the ability to communicate and convey my opinion, which I do frequently.”

In matters of style, McConnell and Trump are a study in contrasts.

Playboy model sentenced for posting photo of unsuspecting nude

Dani Mathers, the 2015 Playboy Playmate of the year, pleaded no contest on Wednesday to a criminal charge of invasion of privacy for secretly photographing a 70-year-old nude woman and was sentenced to 30 days of graffiti removal work, prosecutors said.

Mathers last July posted to social media a picture of the woman in the shower area of a Los Angeles fitness center, city officials said.

At her sentencing, the judge also placed Mathers on probation for three years, according to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.

            <span class="article-divide first-article-divide"></span><p>"The message today is clear: body shaming is not tolerated in the city of Los Angeles," Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer said in a statement.</p><span></span>

            <span class="article-divide second-article-divide"></span><p>The photo contained the caption, "If I can't unsee this then you can't either" and showed Mathers covering her mouth. Mathers was publicly condemned by social media users and prosecutors charged her.</p><span></span><p>California law prohibits secretly taking such photos, but not their distribution online. Legislation under consideration at the state capital would establish penalties for sharing them on the Web, Feuer said.</p><span></span>

            <span class="article-divide third-article-divide"></span><p>Mathers, 30, could have faced up to six months in jail.</p><span></span><p>"Dani is very relieved that this process is going to be behind her," her attorney Tom Mesereau said by phone. "She's very apologetic and very remorseful over what happened. We're all grateful that she is not going to receive any jail time and pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor." </p><span></span><p> (Reporting by Alex Dobuzinskis; Editing by Richard Chang)</p><span></span>

Exclusive: McConnell frets about healthcare, hopeful on tax overhaul

This NEWS was originally shared on Aulanews United States News

By Susan Cornwell and Yasmeen Abutaleb
| WASHINGTON

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Wednesday he does not yet know how Republicans will amass the votes needed to pass legislation now being crafted to dismantle Obamacare, but expressed some optimism on another top priority, overhauling the tax code.

In an exclusive interview with Reuters, McConnell said healthcare and taxes still top the Republican legislative agenda, and he added that he will not reach out to the minority Democrats on either one because differences between the two parties are too stark.

McConnell also said he has not asked the White House for input as the Senate devises its own healthcare legislation after the Republican-led House of Representatives passed its version on May 4, but may do so in the future.

Excluding Democratic involvement will leave McConnell, a conservative 75-year-old Kentuckian with a reputation as a dealmaker, a narrow path to win passage of these ambitious goals, which are also at the head of Republican President Donald Trump’s policy agenda.

Referring to behind-the-scenes work among Senate Republicans on hammering out the provisions of a healthcare bill, McConnell said, “I don’t know how we get to 50 (votes) at the moment. But that’s the goal.”

Republicans hold a 52-48 Senate majority. In the event of a 50-50 tie, Republican Vice President Mike Pence would be called upon to cast a tie-breaking vote.

McConnell opened the interview by saying, “There’s not a whole lot of news to be made on healthcare.” He declined to discuss what provisions he might want to see in the bill or provide a timetable for producing even a draft to show to rank-and-file Republican senators and gauge their support.

On the other hand, he said, prospects for passage of major tax legislation were “pretty good.” While this too will be difficult, McConnell said, it is “not in my view quite as challenging as healthcare.”

Trump and his fellow Republicans in Congress want to cut tax rates across the board, but a House proposal to use the tax code to boost exports and discourage imports has split the business community and some lawmakers.

            <span class="article-divide first-article-divide"></span><p>The House narrowly passed its legislation to overhaul the healthcare system and dismantle major parts of the Obamacare law, formally called the Affordable Care Act, that was Democratic former President Barack Obama's signature legislative achievement, overcoming unified opposition from Democrats.</p><span></span><p>Asked if he was getting any guidance from the White House on healthcare legislation, McConnell said, "Honestly I haven't asked for any. I told the president there would be a point at which we might well want him and the vice president to be helpful."</p><span></span><p>McConnell said Trump and Pence could play an important role when it comes to "whipping" up support for whatever bill is produced.</p><span></span><p>If the Senate passes a healthcare bill, lawmakers would have to work out the differences in the House and Senate versions and pass a compromise bill before it could go to Trump for his signature.</p><span></span><span class="article-subtitle"><p>BALANCING ACT

            <span class="article-divide second-article-divide"></span><p>With Republicans holding a slim Senate majority, McConnell likely needs the cooperation and support of hard-line conservative Republicans such as Senator Ted Cruz who in the past have been difficult to corral.</p><span></span><p>Cruz is a member of a working group within the Senate in charge of crafting the Senate Obamacare repeal legislation.</p><span></span><p>"I'm grateful that he wants to help us get an outcome here," McConnell said.</p><span></span><p>Republicans face a tricky balancing act. Because they cannot expect any Democratic support and have a razor-thin majority, they must devise legislation that appeals not only to the most conservative senators but also does not drive off many Republican moderates.</p><span></span><p>Since it became law in 2010, Republicans have railed against Obamacare, arguing that it is too expensive and involves the government too deeply in Americans' healthcare decisions.</p><span></span>

            <span class="article-divide third-article-divide"></span><p>They have said they want to replace it with a program that repeals most Obamacare taxes, reduces federal spending in the Medicaid insurance program for the poor and leaves more decisions up to the states.</p><span></span><p>McConnell in the past has promised to undo Obamacare "root and branch." Now that Republicans are in a position to do so with control of both Congress and the White House, they have struggled to come up with a consensus plan.</p><span></span><p>The Republican leader compared the effort to solving a Rubik's Cube.</p><span></span><p>Many Senate Republicans have misgivings about the House-passed legislation, which Democrats have said would deprive millions of people of insurance, benefit the wealthy and roll back Obamacare protections such as guaranteed coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.</p><span></span><p>Even with heavy lobbying by Trump, House Republicans barely produced enough votes to approve their version. Passage came after an earlier attempt collapsed in March.</p><span></span><p>McConnell made clear that senators are writing their own bill, saying, "We're working on a separate approach."</p><span></span><p>In taking a Republican-only approach to healthcare and taxes, McConnell said of Democrats, "They're not interested in doing what we're interested in doing."</p><span></span><p>McConnell expressed optimism two parties can band together to pass legislation funding the federal government in the fiscal year starting on Oct. 1.</p><span></span><p>He also noted good prospects for bipartisanship on a bill to expand sanctions against Iran, due for debate in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee this week, and renewal of a Food and Drug Administration user-fee program that expires later this year.</p><span></span>
