(Reuters) – The U.S. Senate on Wednesday took up a measure to repeal regulations adopted by the Obama administration requiring internet service providers to do more to protect customers’ privacy than websites like Google or Facebook. The Senate began debate on Wednesday evening under a provision that allows Congress to repeal recently approved federal regulations. Under the rules approved by the Federal Communications Commission in October under then-President Barack Obama, internet providers would need to obtain consumer consent before using precise geolocation, financial information, health information, children’s information and web browsing history for advertising and internal marketing.

On Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes made an unexpected revelation. The president and his associates, Nunes told a gaggle of reporters, were swept up in “incidental collection” by US intelligence agencies. It’s a charge that almost sounds like it validates Trump’s recent tweeted accusations that President Obama “wiretapped” Trump Tower. But it doesn’t. As with any story where so much of the underlying information remains classified, there aren’t many details to work with. A close look at what Nunes said today, though, fails to confirm any of Trump’s previous assertions. If anything, it raises more questions.

FBI Director James Comey on Monday acknowledged an investigation into possible links between President Donald Trump’s election campaign and the Russian government amid a larger probe into Russian interference while also quashing claims that his predecessor directed surveillance at Trump or Trump Tower in Manhattan. Appearing before members of the House Intelligence Committee, Comey said it’s atypical for the agency to comment on ongoing investigations aside for “unusual circumstances where it is in the public interest, it may be appropriate to do so…this is one of those circumstances.” Comey, who had drawn the ire of some Democrats for his comments about Hillary Clinton during the presidential election, said the FBI is investigating the Russian government’s alleged efforts to interfere in …

WASHINGTON, D.C. — FBI Director James Comey confirmed Monday that the bureau is investigating possible links and coordination between Russia and associates of President Donald Trump as part of a broader probe of Russian interference in last year’s presidential election. The extraordinary revelation, and the first public confirmation of an investigation that began last summer, came at the outset of Comey’s opening statement in a congressional hearing examining Russian meddling and possible connections between Moscow and Trump’s campaign. He acknowledged that the FBI does not ordinarily discuss ongoing investigations, but said he’d been authorized to do so given the extreme public interest in this case. “This work is very complex, and there is no way for me to give you …

Some small business advocates warn that a Republican plan to revamp health care could stifle entrepreneurship. A Congressional Budget Office report has increased opposition to the bill that would replace the Affordable Care Act enacted under the Obama administration. The CBO said last week that the bill, which GOP leaders hope to bring to a House vote this week, would result in 14 million people losing coverage next year, and 24 million by 2026. Citing a January Treasury Department report, the Small Business Majority says the GOP plan, which is supported by President Donald Trump, could deter would-be small business owners from starting companies. The Treasury said one in five people who bought insurance on exchanges created under the ACA …

Since the day he was elected, President Trump’s administration has been dogged by suspicions that his campaign staff colluded with the Russian government to tip the election in his favor—particularly through the intrusion into the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign by Kremlin hackers. Now, nine months since the earliest of those intrusions came to light, the FBI has confirmed that since July, it’s been investigating possible connections between Trump’s campaign and the Russian government. In a hearing of the House of Representatives’ Select Intelligence Committee Monday into possible Russian interference in the election, FBI Director Comey stated for the first time that the agency he leads is investigating Russia-Trump ties. “I’ve been authorized by the Department of Justice …

Senate hearings get underway on Trump pick of Neil Gorsuch for Supreme Court

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Thirteen months after Antonin Scalia’s death created a vacancy on the Supreme Court, hearings get underway on President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace him. Judge Neil Gorsuch, 49, is a respected, highly credentialed and conservative member of the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. His nomination has been cheered by Republicans and praised by some left-leaning legal scholars, and Democrats head into the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on Monday divided over how hard to fight him. The nomination has been surprisingly low-key thus far in a Capitol distracted by Trump-driven controversies over wiretapping and Russian spying as well as attempts to pass a divisive health care bill. That will change this week as the hearings give …
