Trump Lies

Our leaders like to talk about “American exceptionalism,” but America is not so exceptional when it comes to renewable energy. In fact, we are falling far behind. Countries all around the world are demonstrating that a transition away from fossil fuels is not only possible, but is a plausible, clean, and affordable path forward. Here’s […]

In an ideal world, the thought of impeaching Donald Trump would warrant at least three cheers, along with some somersaults and a marching band (my preference would be for a New Orleans Second Line led by Trombone Shorty). Yet in an ideal world Donald Trump would be nothing but a bad dream. Our world is […]

George T. Conway III is a lawyer in New York. So it turns out that, indeed, President Trump was not exonerated at all, and certainly not “totally” or “completely,” as he claimed. Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III didn’t reach a conclusion about whether Trump committed crimes of obstruction of justice — in part because, […]

Republicans for the Rule of Law, a conservative group whose stated purpose is “defending the institutions of our republic,” will run an advertisement on Fox News over the weekend to urge GOP lawmakers to hold Trump accountable for the findings in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. […]

In January 20, 2017, Donald Trump stood on the steps of the Capitol, raised his right hand, and solemnly swore to faithfully execute the office of president of the United States and, to the best of his ability, to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. He has not kept that promise. Instead, […]

A senior Australian diplomat has said the government is “now ready to confirm” a series of events in 2016 between the country’s high commissioner to the UK and a Trump campaign adviser, which led to US authorities investigating Donald Trump’s links with Russia. The release of the Australian diplomatic documents comes as a redacted copy […]

More than two years after Robert Mueller began investigating whether President Donald Trump attempted to obstruct justice, the special counsel offered the American people a sobering conclusion in his final report, released Thursday: The most powerful law enforcement officials in the country are not in a position to prosecute their boss, the President. But Congress, Mueller said, […]

Minutes after Attorney General William Barr walked off-stage at the end of his Mueller report, in which he openly and preemptively spun away President Trump’s actions, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace blasted Barr’s performance and claimed he was acting more as the president’s personal counselor than the nation’s attorney general. During his morning presser, which took place hours before Congress and […]

On Thursday morning, Attorney General William Barr appeared on national television and told the public that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report concluded that as many as ten discrete episodes of obstruction of justice involving the president may have occurred in the course of the special counsel office’s independent investigation. He similarly acknowledged that there was […]

President Donald Trump is apparently unhappy with the way Fox News hosted a town hall with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) this week.

Here they go again. Attorney General William Barr is already under fire for his March letter to Congress, which reported the results of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation in a way many feel was mostly beneficial to President Donald Trump. Now, Democrats are taking aim at Barr’s recent congressional testimony in which he slipped in […]

Stephen Miller is winning. In recent days, President Donald Trump’s senior adviser for policy has overseen a purge of officials who were seen as insufficiently extreme on immigration. Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen was pushed out on Sunday. Two days earlier, Miller persuaded Trump to cut ties with Ronald Vitello, the president’s nominee to lead Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “Ron’s a […]

When Barr gave Congress detailed report of DOJ memo in 1989, he left out major portions. Here’s what he was hiding, writes Ryan Goodman. On Friday the thirteenth October 1989, by happenstance the same day as the “Black Friday” market crash, news leaked of a legal memo authored by William Barr. He was then serving as head […]

President Donald Trump likes to describe anyone who disagrees with him as “treasonous.” This week, in a span of less than 24 hours, he used the phrase to describe both the individuals who conducted the Mueller investigation as well as Democratic lawmakers who disagree with his border policy. But not only is Trump misusing the […]

WASHINGTON (AP) — Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says the department hasn’t decided whether to comply with a demand by a key House Democrat to deliver President Donald Trump’s tax returns and won’t meet a Wednesday deadline to provide them. In a letter to House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass., who asked for […]

Since taking office, President Donald Trump has had consistently dismal approval polling, usually hovering steadily around 42 percent with disapproval in the mid-50s or even low 60s at different points. After having been obsessed with polls during the 2016 primary and general elections, Trump has largely avoided talking about his approval numbers as president because […]

New York Rep. Jerry Nadler, the Democratic chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said Congress is “entitled to see all” of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, doubling down on his demand that the Justice Department provide his committee with the findings of the nearly two-year Russia investigation with no redactions. “Congress has a right to the entire […]

His administration declared the elite military group a terrorist organization On Monday, the Trump administration officially designated Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist group.

The rise of far-right movements in Europe aligns with a significant increase over the last five years in spending by Christian groups here in the United States.

Hate crimes are on the rise. Police and prosecutors need better tools to fight back. Last week, federal agents in Maryland arrested a United States Coast Guard officer and said he was plotting to assassinate Democratic members of Congress, prominent television journalists and others. The officer, Lt. Christopher Hasson, apparently inspired by a right-wing Norwegian terrorist who […]

The president is counting on his loyalists to vote for him again despite all his broken promises to them. I’ve got the perfect slogan for President Trump’s reelection campaign: “Promises Made, Promises Not Kept, But I’m Betting My Voters Are Too Stupid to Notice.” Let’s take stock: Trump promised to build a wall along the […]

After two years of ‘America First’ policies, the United States is likely to post the biggest trade gap in its history. The gap with China is also set to hit a record.
