Congressional members have given the IRS until Wednesday to provide copies of all agency communications that include the words "tea party," "patriot," and "conservative."
The senior Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee says Republican obsession over the White House's handling of the inquiry into last year's deadly attack on a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, is hurting the investigation.
Capitol Hill Republicans on Sunday called the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative groups "chilling" and demanded a congressional inquiry.
The top American diplomat in Libya is set to offer politically damaging testimony this week that suggests the Obama administration fumbled its response to the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
As Israeli planes hit targets in Syria for the second time in three days, some Republicans on Sunday ramped up their calls for President Obama to take stronger measures against the Assad regime — but the White House response was muted.
Two weeks after the Boston Marathon bombings, the debate still rages as to whether the two men accused of orchestrating the attack acted alone, particularly among members of Congress who say they see too much evidence of planning for an isolated operation.
The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee says evidence suggests the two brothers accused of the Boston bombings had help planning the attack — and he says he has concerns about a possible "wider conspiracy" stretching overseas.
The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said Sunday that the FBI is investigating in the United States and overseas to determine whether the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing received training that helped them carry out the attack.
Former counterterror expert Philip Mudd, discussing on "Fox News Sunday" the motives behind last week's Boston Marathon bombing, suggested the suspected bombers acted autonomously.
One of them is dead and the other is lying in a hospital bed, but authorities say the brothers responsible for the deadly Boston Marathon bombing had more attacks planned had they not been stopped, the city's top police officer said Sunday.
Expanded background-checks legislation may have been stopped in its tracks, but gun control advocates — led by the families of the Newtown, Conn., victims — are vowing to fight on.
Authorities still are trying to pinpoint the motives behind the Boston Marathon bombings, but a leading GOP congressman pulled no punches on Sunday and urged the FBI to focus on threats from within the Muslim community.
The immigration reform bill that senators are writing in secret would move U.S. policy to a points-based system that would reward immigrants who are taking care of disabled parents at the same level as those who have earned master's degrees in high-tech fields, according to a draft of the legislation reviewed by The Washington Times.
Lawmakers on both sides of a proposal to expand gun-purchase background checks to sales online and at gun shows said Sunday that they don't know whether it will pass — a hurdle that, if not cleared, likely would kill the prospects of significant gun control legislation on Capitol Hill.
