Biggest news you missed this weekend
Across the aisle, uproar over Preet Bharara's firing
Condemnation over President Trump's decision to fire U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara came fast and furious on Saturday, from both sides of the aisle. Bharara refused the administration's request to resign along with 45 other U.S. attorneys across the nation and was summarily fired, sending shockwaves across New York, where the prosecutor was known to crusade against corruption in state and local governments. "I did not resign," Bharara tweeted Saturday. "Moments ago I was fired. Being the US Attorney in SDNY (Southern District of New York) will forever be the greatest honor of my professional life." The firing reversed a promise from President Trump, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Friday, stating the president had initiated a call to him in November "and assured me he wanted Mr. Bharara to continue to serve as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District." Schumer also noted that by asking for the immediate resignations of the remaining US attorneys before their replacements have been confirmed, "the President is interrupting ongoing cases and investigations and hindering the administration of justice."
Health secretary Price disputes idea that many will lose coverage under GOP bill
Trump administration officials mounted a strong defense of the Republican health care bill Sunday, insisting that it will increase coverage, reduce costs and leave no one worse off. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price defined success on NBC's Meet the Press as "more people covered than are covered right now, and at an average cost that is less. And I believe we can firmly do that with the plan that we've laid out there." The rosy forecast soon will come up against the Congressional Budget Office's estimate of the Republican bill's impact, expected as early as Monday — that is likely to predict millions of people will lose health insurance coverage under the plan. Price on Sunday rejected one estimate of 15 million people losing coverage.
