"Trump’s chief national security aide was secretly interacting with the representative of a foreign power as that government was mounting information and cyber warfare against the United States.” When Michael Flynn, former national security advisor in the Trump Administration, agreed to cooperate in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, he admitted to lying to the FBI about his communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the late 2016 lame duck session. But according to a new David Corn/Dan Friedman article for Mother Jones, Flynn was in touch with Kislyak not only after the 2016 presidential election, but during the election as well.For the article, published December 13, Mother Jones’ reporters interviewed two Flynn associates who asked for anonymity—and both of them discussed their conversations with Flynn. One of them, according to Corn and Friedman, alleges that Flynn and Kislyak discussed “a grand bargain in which Moscow wo...

Trump unloads a barrage of tweets out of fantasy land. Trump has ended a newsy week with a fountain of what by even his own standards are pretty down-is-up and untrue statements.For a president increasingly isolated and facing a growing number of challenges from the world, politics and incoming investigations, there is a distinct reflection of self-delusion and an air of desperate flailing strong enough for all to sense. It’s a sign that we all should strap in for more as these investigations come closer to him.Indeed, “The White House is adopting what one official termed a ‘shrugged shoulders’ strategy for adverse news, calculating that most GOP base voters will believe whatever the president tells them to believe,” according to one Washington Post report.In just a few days, Trump:Blamed rioting protests in Paris on failed efforts to address climate change and claimed that protesters were calling for Trump to intervene. Um, no – on all counts. The protests are aime...

David French is done watching his party succumb to echo-chamber politics on Trump and Russia. In their desperation to insulate President Donald Trump from the fallout of the Russia investigation, the Republican Party has woven an elaborate counternarrative in which the act of investigating Russia is the real scandal. And David French, writer for the arch-conservative National Review, is finally calling out this mentality on the Right."It's time to put a conspiracy theory to rest," writes French in a new column. "It's time to debunk a hoax."The GOP narrative goes that the investigation, first started by the FBI and taken up by special counsel Robert Mueller, is a "witch hunt" manufactured by Obama administration officials to bring down Trump; that the investigation of the campaign was illegal and the warrant to surveil it obtained using partisan material; that Trump officials are being prosecuted over "perjury traps" rather than anything of substance; and that Mueller's team is s...

Trump looms over our lives, our planet, in a way no other human being ever has, not even a Joseph Stalin or a Mao Zedong, whose images were once plastered all over the Soviet Union and China.

Here, in summary, is my view of the news that’s breaking in the United States on just about any day of the week:Trump. Trump. Trump. Trump. Trump.Or rather (in the president’s style):Trump! Trump!

Michael Flynn’s “substantial” cooperation with the Mueller investigation likely means big trouble for Trump Of all the cooperators in Robert Mueller's investigation, the one who has been quietest through the whole thing is former national security adviser Michael Flynn. It's rather unexpected considering his rash statements during the campaign, tweeting conspiracy theories and leading chants of "Lock her up!" at the GOP convention. Everything pointed to him being more like Roger Stone or Jerome Corsi than the disciplined military officer he presumably was before he got bitten by the right-wing activist bug.Not that Flynn has had an awakening on that count. His one foray back into the political scene was to campaign last March for a Republican named Omar Navarro, the longshot opponent to Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif. Navarro was also endorsed by former Phoenix sheriff Joe Arpaio and Roger Stone. So Flynn is still a member of the club, but has at least followed his lawyer's a...

Mueller isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. For those who fear that Donald Trump is about to lower the boom on special counsel Robert Mueller, take a deep breath and slowly exhale. Despite all you’ve heard from Trump himself, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sandersand law professor Alan Dershowitz about the commander in chief’s unfettered authority to discharge any member of the executive branch with impunity, Mueller isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.There are at least five reasons why Mueller and his probe are safe:1. Trump lacks unilateral authority to remove Mueller.The Department of Justice regulations under which Mueller was appointed preclude the president from dismissing a special counsel on his own initiative.The current regulations were adopted in 1999. They replaced the old Clinton-era “independent counsel” statute, which expired the same year.As the present regulations clearly stipulate:The Special Counsel may be disciplined or removed from office only...

The letter, which was sent in September by investigators working out of the U.S. attorney's office in Washington, does not accuse Erickson of any crimes or guarantee that he will face charges.Erickson, a former boardmember of the American Conservative Union who advised the presidential campaigns of...

President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser provided so much information to the special counsel’s Russia investigation that prosecutors say he shouldn’t do any prison time, according to a court filing Tuesday that describes Michael Flynn’s cooperation as "substantial." The filing by special counsel Robert Mueller provides the first details of Flynn’s assistance in the Russia investigation, including that he participated in 19 interviews with prosecutors and cooperated extensively in a separate and undisclosed criminal probe. But the filing’s extensive redactions also underscore how much Mueller has yet to reveal. It was filed two weeks ahead of Flynn’s sentencing and just over a year after he became the first of five Trump associates to accept responsibility by pleading guilty to lying to the FBI about conversations with the Russian ambassador to the US. Though prosecutors withheld specific details of Flynn’s cooperation because of ongoing invest...

Bush and pulled back from his trade war with China.Articles like this reveal the absurdly low bar the mainstream media has set for Trump before claiming he had a good week.

Trump has surrounded himself with shady figures. No matter how much President Donald Trump’s obsequious carnival barkers at Fox News scoff at Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia-related investigation, there is no question that Mueller and his team have uncovered an abundance of major crimes—from obstruction of justice to tax evasion to bank fraud. Trump himself has not been charged with anything, but the phrase “flock of felons” (which veteran television journalist Dan Rather has used to describe some of president’s allies) easily applies to Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen, Rick Gates and other Trump associates who have been caught up in Mueller’s investigation and either confessed to major crimes or been convicted of them. And Mueller’s Russiagate probe moves along with week, with sentencing memos expected for Manafort as well as Michael Flynn (former national security advisor in the Trump Administration).Here is where things presently stand with several Trump a...

Here is a quick list of issues, and people, still hanging out there. Tuesday’s sentencing hearing for Michael Flynn, and memos expected later in the week detailing portions of the investigation related to Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen, have a number of pundits opining that the Russia investigation is all but over. Again. Across DC, and TV, the desire to slap a bow on the special counsel appointment and flip off the lights seems to be near fever pitch. But there are reasons to believe that the investigation led by Robert Mueller may be a long way from over—it might not even have reached cruising altitude.
