Washington (CNN)President Joe Biden's new vaccine requirements could apply to as many as 100 million Americans, or almost two-thirds of the American workforce, and have spawned a predictable pushback from a handful of Republican states -- making them the latest frontier in the fight between the administration and state officials over how to address the ongoing pandemic.

Though the specific rules for the vaccine mandate have yet to be written, several Republican state officials have already said they intend to challenge them. Arizona's attorney...

(CNN)As the Supreme Court finds itself in an unwelcome political spotlight at the start of a new term, Justice Stephen Breyer defended the institution Sunday in an interview on CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS," insisting that the court is driven not by political considerations, but by judicial philosophy.

"There are many jurisprudential differences," Breyer said. "It isn't really right to say that it's political in the ordinary sense of politics."

The court is poised to tackle issues next term that dominate the political discourse, including disputes...

Washington (CNN)A Texas doctor is publicly revealing that he violated a state law that bans abortions after six weeks and says he is inviting legal challenges under the controversial law, which has so far withstood efforts by pro-abortion rights supporters to block it.

"On the morning of Sept. 6, I provided an abortion to a woman who, though still in her first trimester, was beyond the state's new limit. I acted because I had a duty of care to this patient, as I do for all patients, and because she has a fundamental right to receive this care," Dr...

French President Emmanuel Macron will speak in the coming days with President Joe Biden in their first contact since a major diplomatic crisis erupted between France and the United States over a submarine deal with Australia, an official said Sunday.

The phone call is at the request of Biden, government spokesman Gabriel Attal said, adding that there was “shock” and “anger” at first in France over news of the deal. But now it's time to try to move forward, he said.

What the French now call a “grave crisis” erupted over the sudden, surprise end to a...

Trump 2024 flirting doesn't stop other Republicans from visiting early voting states

There have been numerous articles written since the 2020 presidential election – including one from this reporter – on whether former President Trump’s repeated teasing of another White House bid is freezing the field in the race for the 2024 Republican nomination.

While Trump remains very popular with the base of the GOP, and polls at this extremely early point in the 2024 presidential cycle indicate that the former president is the overwhelming front runner in the nomination race, his immense clout is not preventing other potential Republican...

In the run-up to the attempted Newsom recall, the Democrats turned up the anti-Trump rhetoric, threatening California voters with the prospect of a Trump clone as governor in a state where Trump lost by nearly 30 points in 2016 and 2020. While California is most certainly not a preview of 2022 election results, it is definitely a preview of Democratic tactics: Use fear of Trump to drive turnout.

Political scientists think everyone should vote and scold anyone who doesn’t. Economists think voting makes little sense — at least from a...

DEL RIO, Texas — Haitian migrants seeking to escape poverty, hunger and a feeling of hopelessness in their home country said they will not be deterred by U.S. plans to speedily send them back, as thousands of people remained encamped on the Texas border Saturday after crossing from Mexico.

Scores of people waded back and forth across the Rio Grande on Saturday afternoon, re-entering Mexico to purchase water, food and diapers in Ciudad Acuña before returning to the Texas encampment under and near a bridge in the border city of Del Rio.

THREE RIVERS, Calif. — Two lightning-sparked wildfires in California merged and made a run to the edge of a grove of ancient sequoias, momentarily driving away firefighters as they try to protect the world's tallest tree by wrapping its base in protective foil.

A shift in the weather led to explosive growth on the fires in the Sequoia National Park in the Sierra Nevada on Friday, the National Park Service said, and the flames reached the westernmost tip of the Giant Forest, where it scorched a grouping of sequoias known as the "Four Guardsmen" that...
