This 'Billions' Romance Is the Purest Thing On TV (& One of the Most Important) | 23 April 2018 | Well, lo and behold, on the subsequent episode of Billions, Taylor Mason (Asia Kate Dillon), the first gender non-binary character on television and an essential addition to Axe Capital, had their first (televised) romance. Here’s the set-up. Fierce, focused Taylor (Asia Kate Dillon) flies to California to meet with Oscar Langstraat (Mike Birbiglia), the venture philanthropist who uses his funds to try to better the world -- a sharp contrast to the ministrations of Axe Capital...This moment was another groundbreaking victory for Taylor's representation as a nonbinary character on TV. It was one thing for Taylor, the incredibly talented analyst, to be accepted as an equal in Axe Capital -- they add tremendous value to the firm. It's another thing for Taylor's nonbinary identity to come up in the context of a personal life. Which is what made Oscar so perfect. Oscar never once stutters over "they."

U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn should be kept off the 2018 ballot, Colorado Supreme Court rules | 23 April 2018 | Six-term U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn of Colorado Springs should be kept off the Republican primary ballot this year, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled Monday in a decision that -- if upheld -- could end the longtime conservative lawmaker's congressional career. The ruling finds in favor of a lawsuit that contended Lamborn didn't properly petition his way onto the ballot because of problems with those he hired to gather signatures for his re-election bid. Five Republicans from the GOP congressman's district have questioned whether workers Lamborn hired to gather signatures for his re-election bid were actually Colorado residents, a state requirement. A lower court earlier this month largely sided with Lamborn that he had enough signatures to be on the ballot, but the opposition appealed, leading to the Colorado Supreme Court ruling.

No official intel used to start FBI probe into Trump campaign-Russia collusion - Rep. Nunes | 22 April 2018 | House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said Sunday his review of FBI and Justice Department "electronic communication" documents shows no intelligence was used to begin the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.

Nunes said on "Sunday Morning Futures." Nunes, R-Calif., cited the Five Eyes agreement as a way of knowing no intel was used. The U.S., along with Canada, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand, make up the "Five Eyes," or countries that share intelligence in a more-trusted fashion than other arrangements, like NATO, particularly due to years of trust and a common language.
