Tea party, lesson learned, plays nice this time

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 09/11/2014 - 06:11

FILE - This July 28, 2011 file photo shows Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., left, on Capitol Hill in Washington. The tea party may have learned its lesson. As Congress finishes work on a must-pass spending bill set for votes next week, the most conservative lawmakers on Capitol Hill are eager to send a message on immigration, and stand firm against a government lending bank. But a year after they forced a 16-day partial government shutdown over President Barack Obama’s health care law, few seem to have the stomach to push their demands that far again. "No question we learned that with the aid of the news media the Democrats were able to pin the blame on us" for last year’s shutdown, said Brooks. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — The tea party may have learned its lesson.

Outgoing Justice Department official says more to come in bank probes

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 09/11/2014 - 06:06
Department of Justice, has a ready response for critics who question why few individuals have been charged for conduct tied to the financial crisis: just wait. "We are not done, we are not finished," said West, who was responsible for crafting a series of multi-billion dollar civil settlements with top banks JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, and Bank of America over shoddy mortgage bonds they sold in the run up to the 2008 crisis. He did not provide details about any additional actions the Justice Department may take against the banks or individuals. After spending more than five years at the Justice Department, including three years as head of the civil division, West leaves behind a legacy of nearly $37 billion in settlements that won him praise as a master negotiator who forced substantial penalties on banks that contributed to the crisis.

The Artemis Racing yacht is towed to shore after capsizing in the San Francisco Bay(Reuters) - No charges will be filed in connection with the death of a British Olympic sailing champion who drowned after the craft he was sailing during training for last year's America's Cup races capsized and broke apart in San Francisco Bay, police said. Andrew Simpson, 36, a two-time Olympic medalist and father of two young boys, suffered multiple blows to his head and body and drowned in the May 9, 2013 accident involving the 72-foot (22-meter) Artemis Racing catamaran. The San Francisco Police Department investigated the incident to see if charges should be pressed in connection with Simpson's death. "There is no evidence to support a criminal charge, so there are no criminal charges at all," Esparza said.
