    A top aide to Sen. Bernie Sanders's (I-Vt.) 2016 presidential campaign is circulating a letter to top Democrats, asking them to back an effort to remove superdelegates from the Democratic primary nomination system, BuzzFeed News reports. Jeff Weaver, who managed Sanders's campaign and went on to briefly run his spinoff group Our Revolution, is in talks with members of Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign to build support for the petition. It urges the DNC to rely solely on delegates that follow the will of Democratic primary voters in determining the nomination.

    The National Rifle Association’s political arm had a record spike in donations in March, even as students took part in demonstrations in Washington and around the country calling for stronger gun control. The NRA Political Victory Fund raised $2.4 million, up from $779,063 in February, according to its latest filing with the Federal Election Commission. That was more than it had raised in any month since at least 2000, a review of FEC records showed. In 2016, when the NRA spent $31 million either attacking Hillary Clinton or supporting the campaign of Donald Trump, its political action committee collected a little less than $1.5 million in its best fundraising month. The Political Victory Fund ended March with $5.8 million in the bank. More at: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-04-20/donations-to-nra-s-political-action-committee-surge-in-march

    Already, the Trump administration score on TPS is 4 to 2. It will phase out TPS for Salvadorans, Haitians, Nicaraguans and Sudanese, a group of more than 260,000. But in January, the government extended TPS for refugees from Syria, where a brutal war had killed about 400,000 and made refugees of about 5.6 million. The decision allows about 6,000 Syrians to remain in the U.S. It also extended TPS for a smaller group of South Sudanese, numbering about 100. Still remaining are decisions on Honduras and three other countries: Nepal, Somalia and Yemen. A decision on about 9,000 Nepalese TPS holders, who live mostly in New York, is expected by April 25.

    President Trump's first state dinner will exclude congressional Democrats and members of the media in a sharp departure from tradition, Politico reported Friday. About 150 guests will join Trump in honoring French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday. The event stands in sharp contrast to the former President Barack Obama's first state dinner— a bipartisan, lavish affair that hosted upward of 350 guests on the South Lawn. According to Politico, four Republican members of Congress are set to attend Trump's first state dinner: House Speaker Paul Ryan, House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Ed Royce, and Louisiana Sens. John Kennedy and Bill Cassidy. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was also invited but will reportedly not be able to attend.

    Mitt Romney was forced Saturday into a Republican primary for a U.S. Senate seat in Utah as he looks to restart his political career by replacing long-serving Sen. Orrin Hatch.Romney remains the heavy favorite overall to win the Senate seat in November. But if he had won the votes of a majority of the far-right leaning party delegates at the state GOP convention Saturday, he would have bypassed a primary altogether. Instead, he was edged out by state lawmaker Mike Kennedy, who got 51 percent of the vote to Romney's 49 percent. Voters will decide between the two in a June 26 primary. Romney previously secured his spot on the ballot by gathering signatures. More at: https://www.yahoo.com/news/romney-seeks-utah-republican-party-nomination-convention-054357864--election.html

    Seattle City Council members have finally released draft legislation for a new tax on large employers that would raise $75 million next year to address homelessness. They say the tax on companies such as Amazon could build 1,780 new low-income apartments over five years and improve the lives of people on the street. Four of the council’s nine members have put their names to the bill released Friday and a fifth has expressed strong support. They say some of the businesses driving Seattle’s economic boom are also — by attracting high-wage employees to the city — driving up rents and home prices. “Seattle is a city of great prosperity that has experienced tremendous growth of its economy and population,” the draft legislation says. “However, this growth and prosperity has directly contributed to the rapid increase in the number of individuals and families experiencing homelessness.” Unveiled after weeks of conversations, the legislation would create a tax of 26 cents per Seattle employee-hour on companies that gross at least $20 million per year in the city. There are about 500 such companies, representing an estimated 3 percent of city businesses, according to council staff. Nonprofits would be exempt.

    Investigators have identified individuals believed to be behind the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal, according to a new report from The Daily Telegraph. British authorities have maintained that the Russian government was behind the nerve agent attack on the ex-spy in Salisbury, England, which Russia has forcefully denied. The new report further bolsters Britain's case: The "persons of interest" who have been singled out by counter-terrorism police and spy agencies are now reportedly in Russia. It's not yet clear who the suspects are, or the full nature of the intelligence that investigators hold, though The Daily Telegraph cites flight manifests for UK flights as a source of clues.

    The surge of enthusiasm among Democrats that’s produced a record number of candidates for Congress this year has come at a cost: spread out donations and campaign accounts drained by expensive primary fights. Even as Democratic donors lavish money on the party’s U.S. House candidates in the first midterm election of Donald Trump’s presidency, an analysis of this week’s Federal Election Commission filings shows Republican candidates have more money in the bank in 17 of 23 districts rated as toss-ups in November by the non-partisan Cook Political Report. "Republicans owe their advantage to incumbency in most of these close races," said Sheila Krumholz, executive director of the Center for Responsive Politics, a campaign finance research group in Washington. "Victors of wide-open primaries with well-funded opponents are usually left with depleted coffers." Plenty of time remains for fundraising before the November election. But the current imbalance suggests a potential advantage for Republicans who may have more resources in the early phase of the general election campaign to define their Democratic opponents in unflattering ways.

    St. Louis prosecutors on Friday charged Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens with a felony for using a charity donor list for his 2016 political campaign, adding to the woes of the first-term Republican governor who responded by calling it another effort to "smear" him.The charge of tampering with computer data is in addition to an earlier charge alleging Greitens took and transmitted a nonconsensual photo of a partially nude woman with whom he had an extramarital affair in 2015. The new charge accuses Greitens of disclosing the donor list from The Mission Continues in 2015 without permission from the St. Louis-based charity that Greitens founded. The Associated Press first reported in October 2016 that Greitens' campaign obtained a list of top donors to The Mission Continues and raised nearly $2 million from donors who were on it. Greitens has been facing increasing pressure to resign — including from fellow Republicans — since a special House investigative committee's report released April 11 that detailed allegations from the woman with whom he had the affair. She testified that Greitens restrained, slapped, grabbed, shoved and threatened her during a series of sexual encounters that at times left her crying and afraid. Greitens has denied committing any crimes and vowed to remain in office, calling the investigations into him a "political witch hunt." On Friday, he accused Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, a Democrat, of wasting "thousands and thousands of taxpayer dollars." "Her original case is falling apart — so today, she's brought a new one," Greitens said in a statement. "By now, everyone knows what this is: this prosecutor will use any charge she can to smear me."

    Britain said on Friday it would strongly support Zimbabwe's re-entry to the Commonwealth and praised President Emmerson Mnangagwa for impressive progress since Robert Mugabe was toppled in a military coup.But it said Mnangagwa, who became president following a military take-over, would still have to deliver on free and fair elections in July to win over Zimbabwe's critics at home and abroad. Zimbabwe left the Commonwealth network of 53 mostly former territories of the British Empire in 2003 after Mugabe, who had ruled Zimbabwe from its independence in 1980, came under criticism over disputed elections and land seizures from white farmers. "The UK would strongly support Zimbabwe's re-entry and a new Zimbabwe that is committed to political and economic reform that works for all its people," the Foreign Office said in a statement.

    . On April 18, Moscow disclosed that it has formally handed over to the OPCW proof to the effect that the Novichok agent purportedly used in the Salisbury attack actually happens to be patented as a chemical weapon in 2015 in the US and produced in that country. (By the way, unlike Russia, the US is yet to destroy its chemical weapon stockpiles, as required under the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1997.) Now, not only the British government but Washington too has some explaining to do. More at: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-04-20/russia-exposes-british-lies-skripal-trail-leads-us
