Trump, his critics, and the basic divide over the FBI
President Trump has been attacking his own Federal Bureau of Investigation for months. The fundamental assumption behind many of his charges is this: In its actions regarding the Russia probe, the bureau is propelled by political bias against him. Mr. Trump’s anger over an alleged FBI “informant” in his campaign is the latest example of this dynamic.

Setback for workers: What fallout as Supreme Court OKs forced arbitration?
In the wake of a #MeToo movement that is pushing corporations to clean up their act, the US Supreme Court threw companies a lifeline.

Monday’s ruling means that companies can keep workers from launching class-action lawsuits – or even going to arbitration as a group – over issues from wages and overtime pay to discrimination and sexual harassment.

Incentives for inmates to chose a crime-free life
America’s faith in the ability of those in prison to redeem themselves often ebbs and flows based on which political party is in charge of law enforcement.

Annoyed Kevin Durant puts Charles Barkley in his place after Warriors win
It only took one over-the-top question from Charles Barkley Sunday night to seemingly ruin Kevin Durant’s mood following the Warriors’ thorough Game 3 victory. Durant, who scored 25 points in the 126-85 thrashing of Houston, was taken aback when the outspoken TNT analyst questioned him about his teammate, Draymond Green. “Is Draymond Green as annoying in person as he is on television?” Barkley asked Durant during TNT’s postgame roundtable discussion. Durant, who appeared bothered by the question, told Barkley, “You should go talk to him, he’s downstairs.” Shaquille O’Neal and Kenny Smith, Barkley’s fellow TNT analysts, quickly lightened things up. “Go on down there,” O’Neal told Barkley. “You
