What's happening in the political world:

Trump attacks Democrats, calls Warren "Pocahontas" in Twitter rampage
-- President Trump once again criticized Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, urging the Department of Justice and the FBI to investigate the party.

In a series of Friday morning tweets, the president said: "Everybody is asking why the Justice Department (and FBI) isn't looking into all of the dishonesty going on with Crooked Hillary & the Dems.."

He continued target Clinton, referencing a book by former acting Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile: "New Donna B book says she paid for and stole the Dem Primary. What about the deleted E-mails, Uranium, Podesta, the Server, plus, plus... People are angry. At some point the Justice Department, and the FBI, must do what is right and proper. The American public deserves it!"

Trump then added: "The real story on Collusion is in Donna B's new book. Crooked Hillary bought the DNC & then stole the Democratic Primary from Crazy Bernie!"

Later, the president turned his attention to Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, calling her "Pocahontas" in a tweet: "Pocahontas just stated that the Democrats, lead by the legendary Crooked Hillary Clinton, rigged the Primaries! Lets go FBI & Justice Dept."

In an interview with CNN, Warren said she believed the DNC was pushed in favor of Clinton over 2016 primary opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Trump had previously referred to Warren as Pocahontas during his presidential run over her much-scrutinized claims of Native American ancestry.

Trump later said: "Bernie Sanders supporters have every right to be apoplectic of the complete theft of the Dem primary by Crooked Hillary! I always felt I would be running and winning against Bernie Sanders, not Crooked H, without cheating, I was right."
