Looking around, I saw pundits and senators, actors and lawyers — and some people who overlapped a few categories. And then I found my answer sitting two tables away: Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, who is overseeing the ongoing special counsel probe.Rosenstein, I told them, may not be the most famous person at the Washington Hilton, but he was perhaps the most powerful, in terms of … [Read more...] about The Daily 202: Rod Rosenstein may just be the most powerful person in Washington

NORTH PROVIDENCE – The Washington Trust Co. expects to open a new branch in North Providence sometime around the start of 2019. Edward O. “Ned” Handy III, chairman and CEO, told Providence Business News last week about plans for the new branch. The bank hasn’t yet announced specifics, but Handy expects it to be completed by the end of the year or in the first quarter of next year. The new branch fits into a broader strategy to add about one new location per year. “We don’t have anything else on the drawing board, but we don’t have any reason to think we won’t continue to do about one branch per year,” Handy said last week.
