    With its 98-2 vote to expand sanctions against Russia, the U.S. Senate has effectively served notice on two great powers in Washington: Russia, which may have to face new costs for its meddling in the 2016 U.S. election; and President Donald Trump, who will have to contend with congressional input on U.S. policy toward Russia.

    The latest ruling against the Trump administration’s ban on travel from six Muslim nations is a particularly sharp blow to the president not because it is more sweeping than previous legal decisions — the 9th Circuit’s decision is actually somewhat narrower than the district court opinion in the case — but because it reaches the same result for different reasons.

    OSSINING, N.Y. — Sparkling in the sunlight that inspired 19th-century romantic painters of the Hudson River School, Sing Sing prison’s razor wire, through which inmates can see the flowing river, is almost pretty. Almost. Rain or shine, however, a fog of regret permeates any maximum-security prison. But 37 men — almost all minorities; mostly African Americans — recently received celebratory attention.

    Conventional political wisdom is that the issue of climate change rarely, if ever, plays a role in elections. Yet, opposition to President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris accord on climate change has been so broad and so loud that one has to wonder if Americans aren’t prepared to abandon conventional wisdom. The volume of protest in communities from Pittsburgh (the city Trump twice claimed he was representing when he announced his decision) to Hawaii, which on June 6 became the first U.S. state to pass a law committing to the Paris agreement, has been breathtaking.
