BYRON YORK — Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley's accusation that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer lied about President Trump and the Russia investigation -- that Schumer said the president was under investigation after he, Schumer, had been specifically told by the FBI that Trump was not -- is shedding new light on the events that led to the president's rising frustration over the Russia probe, the FBI, and Democrats who sought to make political hay out of Trump's troubles....

WASHINGTON TIMES — House intelligence committee sources say career officials at the National Security Council are slow-walking the delivery of subpoenaed records on former National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice's handling of classified information and the "unmasking" of Trump campaign workers -- material from the Russian hacking probe that middle-level NSC managers claim was transferred to President Obama's library and could "remain closed to the public for five years."...

They were dressed as characters from "The Handmaid's Tale," the Hulu series that premiered April 26 based on the 1985 feminist dystopian novel that has been embraced by the left, fueling a recent rash of costumed protests aimed at reviving the "war on women" message....

BYRON YORK — The Georgia 6th District results don't tell us what will happen in 2018. But they do tell us what is happening right now. In a conversation two weeks before the GA06 election, a Republican strategist involved in the fight mused on the possibility that all the money spent, all the doors knocked, all the phones called, all the accusations hurled -- that it might mean nothing when it comes to the crucial question of who will win control of the House of Representatives in 2018....
