The president’s lies don’t seem to faze some people. For instance, in a letter to the editor (Globe, Sept. 22), David Turner admits he doesn’t like liars but thinks he will take the liar we already have rather than any of the candidates who are proposing changes. He thinks all those candidat…

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump, an ongoing eruption of self-refuting statements ("I'm a very stable genius" with "a very good brain"), is adding self-impeachment to his repertoire. Spiraling downward in a tightening gyre, his increasingly unhinged public performances (Google the one with Finland'…

WASHINGTON — The judge took 130 pages to explain that Harvard's "holistic review" admissions policies — which include ascribing particular attributes to certain ethnicities, such as Asian Americans, and assessing the value to Harvard of those attributes — are, considering 41 years of Supreme…

There have so far been two hearings in the House Democrats’ effort to impeach President Donald Trump over the Ukraine matter. Both have been held in secret. One was last Thursday, the other Friday, and the public does not know what was said in either. Two more are scheduled for this week, an…

As the temperatures begin to drop, most of us will be dusting off our space heaters or turning on our central heating units in the coming weeks.

The top order of business when the House of Representatives returns from recess on Oct. 15 is certain to be the impeachment inquiry into the conduct of President Donald Trump. Here's something the lawmakers should take care of first: changing the presidential line of succession to remove the…

Here's an excerpt from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff's opening statement on Sept. 26, the day the acting director of national intelligence, Joseph Maguire, testified before the committee. Schiff is talking about the now-infamous Donald Trump-Volodymyr Zelenskiy phone conv…

Let’s repeat it together three times: Preprimary polls testing would-be presidential nominees have all the permanence of numbers written with a stick in the wet sand at the ocean’s edge just before the high tide comes in.

Fireworks exploded first thing Tuesday morning and it was amazing: Twitter was crackling with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg blasting Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren, and Warren doubled down on a pledge to break up the social media behemoth to protect us all from the monop…

My wife, Cokie, and I wrote more than 1,000 columns together, but this is the first one I'm writing alone. The outpouring of affection has been so overwhelming — and heartfelt — since her passing that I wanted to share parts of the eulogy I delivered at St. Matthew's Cathedral in Washington, D.C.

SEOUL, South Korea — In 1950, when Han Sung-joo was 10, shrapnel from an artillery shell lodged in his hip. This happened as Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s troops, fresh from the bold Incheon landing, were retaking this city — it would be lost and retaken again — after North Korea’s June invasion.…
