MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Amy Klobuchar has hosted a rowdy event at a Manchester bar, making her final push for votes ahead of Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary. Amid chants of “Amy” and plenty of beer, Klobuchar argues she is the candidate who could unite the nation and bring decency back to the White House. The Minnesota senator says, “The heart of our nation is bigger than the heart of this guy in the White House.” Klobuchar has been buoyed by a string of New Hampshire newspaper endorsements, an infusion of cash and some polls projecting a third-place finish. She says she is sensing something happening for her campaign.
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — President Donald Trump tried to rattle Democrats with a Monday night rally in New Hampshire on the eve of the state's first-in-the-nation primaries. Trump, on a high after his acquittal last week on impeachment charges, launched an assault on the Democrats who tried to remove him from office, calling the episode a “pathetic partisan crusade." Trump also laced into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her performance during his State of the Union address last week, prompting the crowd to break into a "Lock her up!" chant.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department says it will not oppose probation for former Trump administration national security adviser Michael Flynn. It's a more lenient stance than prosecutors took earlier this month, when they said he deserved prison time. The latest sentencing filing still seeks a sentence of up six months. But unlike before, prosecutors explicitly state that probation would be a “reasonable" punishment and that they would not oppose it. It was not clear why the Justice Department appeared to soften its position, though prosecutors did suggest Flynn deserves credit for his decades-long military service.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General William Barr says the Justice Department is collecting information that Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani is gathering in Ukraine about the president’s Democratic rival Joe Biden and his son. But Barr cautioned Monday that federal officials have “to be very careful” with information coming from Ukraine. The prospect that Giuliani is providing potentially damaging information about one of the president’s political rivals to the Justice Department while he is under federal investigation is likely to deepen criticism from Democrats that Barr acts more like the president’s personal lawyer than the attorney general.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon says the number of U.S. service members diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries has shot up to more than 100, as more troops suffer the aftereffects of the Iranian ballistic missile attack early last month in Iraq. The department says the latest total is 109 military members who have been treated for mild TBI. Nearly 70 have returned to duty. The latest numbers mark a significant increase over the 64 reported a little over a week ago. The Pentagon warns that the number may continue to change.
