Trump-Russia scandal: Like Watergate and Iran-Contra—only worse  

It took Richard Nixon more than two years to own up to the Watergate scandal. Facing impeachment, he resigned, and top aides spent time in jail. Ronald Reagan's administration traded arms to Iran for the release of a few American hostages in 1985, using profits from those arms sales to fund a war in Nicaragua, and it took several years and three investigations to unravel the whole mess. Reagan escaped direct punishment for the Iran-Contra affair, but several on his team were convicted (and par...

Trump Says There's Been No Russia Contact -- Of Course, Much Of What He Says Is Untrue  

WASHINGTON – The Republican leader of the United States Senate was asked last week if he believed the Republican president’s denial that his campaign colluded with the foreign power that was trying to help him win. Mitch McConnell’s answer: “I have no idea.” His office later said that McConnell misunderstood the question ― that he thought he was being asked if he personally knew whether Trump’s campaign had colluded with Russia. Regardless, McConnell’...

Numbing the pain of self-inflicted wounds in Trump's America  

Lady Liberty is in an abusive relationship with Uncle Sam. Try as she might to break the hold that he has on her, she remains tormented by his maltreatment, but is bound by years of tradition and obligation, and unable to imagine a life independent of him. Though he's raped and beaten her repeatedly, she finds a way to convince herself that he has redeeming qualities, along with a seemingly endless supply of second chances. She tells herself things will get better if only she could give hi...

Secret Tape Reveals Trump Hyping Presidency To Club Members  

An audiotape of Donald Trump shortly after he won the presidency shows him hyping the upcoming drama of a new kind of reality show. On the tape, which Politico obtained from someone on the scene, Trump exhorts the “special people” at one of his golf clubs to be his audience and enjoy the drama of watching him interview potential candidates for his Cabinet. “We’re doing a lot of interviews tomorrow — generals, dictators, we have everything,” says Trump

The 2017 legislative elections and the post-Trump map  

While many eyes (and with justification!) are already on the 2018 midterm elections, it is worth noting that some very important elections on the statewide level are on tap for this November. So, it is fair to say that the first chance to assess the electoral impact of Donald Trump will come in just nine short months. The two states that headline the 2017 election cycle are two states that, on the surface, did not seem to change much in 2016. Virginia, which arguably will get the most atte

War: What is it good for? Absolutely nothing  

By the time you read this essay, it may be old news. The content might seem hopelessly outdated, or we will have troops on their way to Syria, or something in between. That is how fast and furious the news cycle has been since Trump took office: something written on Wednesday may be irrelevant by Sunday. But this was the news as of midweek: "It's possible that you may see conventional forces hit the ground in Syria for some period of time," one defense official told CNN. Donald Trum...

Trump allies deliver plan to lift Russian sanctions—by helping to topple the Ukrainian government

The players involved are a who's who of Trump-connected pro-Russian figures. Mr. Flynn is gone, having been caught lying about his own discussion of sanctions with the Russian ambassador.

Fox News' Chris Wallace to Reince Priebus: 'You don't get to tell us what to do'  

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus clashed Sunday over President Trump's tweet labeling the media an "enemy of the American people." "I don't have any problem with you complaining about an individual story" or bias, Wallace said. "But you went a lot further than that — or the president went a lot further than that he said that the 'fake media' — not certain stories — the 'fake media' are an 'enemy to the country.'" Priebus pushed b

Man Says He Salutes A Donald Trump Cardboard Cutout Every Day  

Gene Huber is so devoted to President Donald Trump, he salutes and talks to a cardboard cutout of Trump every day. Huber, 47, revealed that bizarre ritual during an interview with CNN, held after he was invited to join the president on stage during a campaign rally in Florida on Friday. “I’ve got a six-foot cardboard box of President Trump in my house and I salute that every single day,” Huber told CNN’s Pamela Brown. “I tell him, ‘Mr. President, I pra

1. Two memos proposing stricter deportation guidelines for asylum seekers and unaccompanied minors have been sent from Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly to the White House for approval, McClatchy reported Saturday afternoon. The documents are dated Feb. 17 and have yet to receive final go-ahead from the president. One memo would increase deportations by giving asylum officers greater discretion to deny asylum requests. At present, 88 percent of asylum seekers pass their initia

Reince Priebus: No One Had Contact With Russia During The Campaign -- As Far As We Know

Trump's amazing and dangerous world of alternative facts—and alternative truth  

Here's what CNN reporter Zachary Wollf recently said when describing why it's hard to cover Donald Trump: "What does it mean when he says words?" Clearly, Trump doesn't mean what he's actually saying. Facts are optional. They are fungible.  \For example his signature building, Trump Tower in Manhattan, is advertised as being 68 stories tall, but in reality is only 58 stories high. Select floors are missing in order for them to claim the 45th floor is really the 53rd floor—an...

Trump Trauma vs. No Drama Obama  

The presidency of popular vote loser Donald Trump is now one month old. There have been a few hiccups—if hiccups mean mind-bogglingly stupid missteps that demonstrate exactly what an in-over-his-head amateur Trump actually is. By comparison, the Trump Administration thus far has made Wile E. Coyote actually look like the Super Genius he sometimes claims to be. Other presidents have had problems getting their nominees confirmed by the Senate, although it really is satisfying to watch the i...

Iowa Republican sped through a bill targeting public workers in ways similar to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's signature union-busting measure: Lawmakers in Iowa have voted to dismantle the state's 40-year-old collective bargaining law, dramatically weakening the power of public sector labor unions and leaving some 185,000 public workers unable to bargain over benefits, healthcare, vacations, retirement, and nearly all workplace issues outside of wages.

The authors of this new study found that strict ID laws—where registered voters must show a photo ID to have their vote count, and no exceptions are permitted—depressed Latino turnout rates the most, followed...
