McCain Announces Opposition to Republican Health Bill, Likely Dooming It

For months, Mr. McCain has lamented a Senate legislative process that avoided hearings or formal bill-drafting procedures and excluded Democrats. On Friday, he said those tactics were intolerable.PhotoSenator Susan Collins, Republican of Maine, has expressed broad concerns about the legislation, strongly suggesting that she, too, would vote against it, just as she voted “no” in July.Credit Tom Brenner/The New York Times“We should not be content to pass health care legislation on a party-line basis, as Democrats did when they rammed Obamacare through Congress in 2009,’’ Mr. McCain said. “If we do so, our success could be as short-lived as theirs when the political winds shift, as they regularly do.’’A bill of this magnitude “requires a bipartisan approach,’’ Mr. McCain added.Those concerns were compounded by the decision of Republican leaders to press forward with a vote next week before the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office could complete a full analysis of the Graham-Cassidy legislation. The budget office is expected to estimate the cost of the bill early in the week, but it indicated that it would not be able to complete an analysis of the bill’s effects on health insurance coverage or premiums by Sept. 30.That date is critical because Republicans, who hold 52 seats in the Senate, have until the end of this month to make use of special budget rules that would allow them to pass a repeal bill in the Senate with only a simple majority, rather than 60 votes. If Republicans could get 50 votes, Vice President Mike Pence would break the tie in their favor.“Of course, I’m disappointed,” Mr. […]

Trump Dismisses ‘Russia Hoax’ as Facebook Turns Over Ads Tied to Campaign

PhotoPresident Trump at the Palace Hotel in New York on Wednesday.Credit Doug Mills/The New York TimesWASHINGTON — President Trump on Friday deflected concerns that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election in his favor and said the “Fake News Media” wielded the greatest influence with its support of the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.In another early morning Twitter post, Mr. Trump referred to the multiple investigations into Russia’s meddling as a “hoax” and returned to accusing the media of biased coverage during the campaign in support of “Crooked Hillary,” Mr. Trump’s nickname for Mrs. Clinton.The president’s downplaying of Russian involvement in the 2016 election comes as Facebook provides congressional investigators with more than 3,000 advertisements Russia purchased during the campaign and reports that the special counsel’s investigation was focusing in part on the president himself.Mr. Trump’s allegation that the news media gave unfair coverage during the campaign echoes accusations Mrs. Clinton made in her recent book, “What Happened.” While Mr. […]

Skadden, Big New York Law Firm, Faces Questions on Work With Manafort

Its conclusions provided a counterpoint to international critics who said that Mr. Yanukovych’s government had prosecuted and convicted the former Ukrainian prime minister, Yulia V. Tymoshenko, on corruption charges in 2011 for political reasons and without sufficient evidence.That kind of international consulting by American firms traditionally has not drawn much scrutiny from regulators or the media, but that has changed in the last year, thanks largely to Mr. Manafort’s role as Mr. Trump’s campaign chairman in 2016 after years collecting multimillion-dollar paydays from Russian and Ukrainian oligarchs and political parties.As part of Mr. Mueller’s investigation, prosecutors last month issued grand jury subpoenas seeking testimony from officials from at least two lobbying and public relations firms that worked on the team Mr. Manafort assembled to plead Mr. Yanukovych’s case in Washington — Mercury Public Affairs and the Podesta Group, according to two people with direct knowledge of the subpoenas.PhotoYulia V. Tymoshenko, the former prime minister of Ukraine, was convicted of corruption in 2011. […]
