Biden, McCarthy, once breakfast mates, wrangle over US debt

WASHINGTON (AP) — Not so long ago, Joe Biden and Republican leader Kevin McCarthy used to talk things over at breakfast in Biden’s vice presidential home at the Naval Observatory. Biden was intent in those days on “keeping up relations with the opposition party,” as he writes in his memoir, and the new House majority leader often arrived with fellow GOP lawmakers in tow.

Slamming the coverage of his travails as "media nonsense," Rep. George Santos on Thursday defiantly insisted he had no plans to resign from Congress.

"I came here to serve the people, not politicians and party leaders, and I'm going to do just that," Santos said in an interview with Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz on Steve Bannon's "War Room" program.

"I've worked my entire life, I’ve lived an honest life, I’ve never been accused, sued of any bad doings," Santos said - declining to specifically answer Gaetz's repeated questions about the source of $700,000...

Rep. Ro Khanna said on Wednesday that he’s weighing a Senate bid in California.

But recent moves have sparked a new round of speculation among Democrats in several key states that the California congressman continues to have his eye on a higher office.

Khanna has retained consultants who are veterans of New Hampshire’s primary and Nevada’s. He paid one Iowa firm as well, before the Democratic National Committee made plans to revoke the state’s first-in-the-nation status. He’s also begun to more forcefully draw contrasts with potential political...

Garland to make statement amid special counsel speculation on Biden docs

Attorney General Merrick Garland is expected to make an announcement Thursday afternoon, addressing the public a day after the discovery of a second batch of classified documents from President Biden’s tenure as vice president.

The announcement comes as the Justice Department is under pressure to appoint a special counsel to oversee an investigation into the potential mishandling of the records.

Biden’s team in November discovered about 10 classified records in a center where he worked after leaving office in 2016. That resulted in a subsequent search, revealing an additional batch of records at Biden’s Delaware home.

The matter comes as the Justice Department has appointed a special counsel to oversee the investigation into former President Trump's mishandling of records after some 300 records bearing classified markings were discovered at Mar-a-Lago.

New York Democrats introduce SANTOS Act with penalties for candidates who lie about qualifications

New York Reps. Dan Goldman (D) and Ritchie Torres (D) introduced the "SANTOS Act" on Thursday — legislation targeting embattled GOP Rep. George Santos (R- N.Y.) that would require candidates to submit more personal information about themselves when filing to run for Congress.

The legislation, called the “Stopping Another Non Truthful Office Seeker Act,” would require candidates running for a House or Senate seat to provide information about their educational background, employment history and military service.

The bill would also establish a penalty of a $100,000 fine, one-year imprisonment or both if someone lied about their credentials. The introduced legislation comes as lawmakers are calling on Santos to resign after he admitted that he fabricated details about where he had claimed to have graduated from college, worked and his religious upbringing, among other details.

“The web of lies George Santos used to defraud his voters is a threat to our free and fair elections, and we have an obligation to ensure nothing like this ever happens again,” Goldman said in a statement.

Torres in his own statement called Santos’ fabrication “a stain on our Democratic process” and said it “threatens to corrupt” Congress.

Earlier this week, Torres and Goldman filed a complaint urging the House Ethics panel probe Santos over his financial disclosure reports.

The growing number of probes and controversies have pushed House Republicans in New York to call on the embroiled congressman to resign, though House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is not backing those calls at this point. Santos, for his part, has remained defiant, reiterating to reporters on Thursday he plans to continue serving in Congress.

“I will not resign. I will be continuing to hold my office elected by the people,” the freshman congressman
