President Trump didn't take long to settle on nominating Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.Trump formally nominated the conservative 7th Circuit judge to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Saturday. But in Barrett's Senate questionnaire released Tuesday, Barrett said she actually got the job days earlier.Ginsburg died on Friday, Sept. 18.

She spoke to Cipollone and Meadows on Sunday, who invited her to Washington, D.C.; "President Trump later called to confirm the invitation," she said. And on Monday, Sept. 21, Barrett met with Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Cipollone and Meadows in person. "The president offered me the nomination on that day, and I accepted," Barrett said.

Senate advances bill to fund government into December
A bill to fund the federal government cleared a key Senate procedural hurdle Tuesday as lawmakers sought to accomplish the bare minimum before they depart Washington to campaign — preventing a shutdown when the new fiscal year begins. A final vote on Wednesday would send the stopgap spending bill to President Donald Trump in time for his signature before the new budget year starts Thursday. The funding measure advanced while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin made a last-ditch effort to strike an agreement on a separate COVID-19 rescue bill that has eluded them for weeks.

Hezbollah leaders tell French president to change approach
The leader of the militant Hezbollah group said Tuesday they still welcome the French initiative to help Lebanon out of its crisis, but said Paris has to change its approach in dealing with local factions and not blame everyone for the failure of forming a new Cabinet. French President Emmanuel Macron has been pressing Lebanese politicians to form a Cabinet made up of non-partisan specialists that can work on enacting urgent reforms to extract Lebanon from a devastating economic and financial crisis. Prime Minister-designate Mustapha Adib resigned Saturday during a political impasse that came amid Lebanon's worst economic and financial crisis in decades — made worse by a massive explosion in Beirut in early August that killed and wounded many and caused widespread damage.

Watch it at the top of the page right now.In the show, which stars original series mainstays Elizabeth Berkley Lauren and Mario Lopez reprising their roles of Jessie Spano and A.C. Slater, California Governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many underfunded high schools and proposes they send the affected students to the most well-funded schools in the state — including Bayside High. The influx of new students gives the privileged Bayside kids (who never have a problem that can't be solved in 22 minutes) a much-needed dose of reality.Also Read: 'Father of the Bride' Cast to Reunite for 'Mini-Sequel' Special at Netflix - Watch the Trailer (Video)The new generation of kids at Bayside High include the "handsome, charming, privileged" Mac and Jessie's "sensitive man-child" son Jamie (Belmont Cameli), as well as Lexi (Josie Totah), "the most popular girl at Bayside High who is both admired and feared by her fellow students"; Daisy (Haskiri Velazquez), "a smart, ambitious sophomore who is excited at the prospect of attending Bayside High after her local school get

White House reportedly pushed CDC hard to fall in line on sending kids to school, sought alternate safety data
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention began working in early summer on guidance for sending children back to school, and the White House then "spent weeks trying to press public health professionals to fall in line with President Trump's election-year agenda of pushing to reopen schools and the economy as quickly as possible," The New York Times reported Monday night, citing documents and interviews with current and former government officials.This "strikingly political intervention in one of the most sensitive public health debates of the pandemic" included searching for "alternate data" that suggested children were at little or no risk from the coronavirus, the Times reports, and trying to swap in guidance from a little-known Health and Human Services Department agency, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).SAMHSA was focused on the emotional and mental health toll remote school could have on children, but CDC scientists found multiple problems with the agency's assertion that COVID-19 posed a low health and transmission risk for children. That's the language the White House was most interested in, though, and throughout the summer the CDC won some battles and lost others trying to keep it out of public guidance, the Times documents.Olivia Troye, one of Vice President Mike Pence's envoys on the White House coronavirus task force until leaving the administration in July, told the
