"If [Matt] Whitaker acts to shut down [Robert] Muller, he too will be guilty of obstruction of justice and a conspirator in that crime." When Tim Weiner’s book “Enemies: A History of the FBI” was published in 2012, he may not have envisioned that one day it would inspire a documentary series meant to place the erratic actions of Donald Trump into context.Another president? Sure. But not a guy best known as the host of “The Apprentice” when “Enemies” first came out.“Let’s examine reality television,” Weiner mused in a recent phone interview, in support of Showtime’s four-part series “Enemies: The President, Justice & the FBI.”  "That is fake news. I grew up in New York, you know. I've been watching Trump since the '70s and everybody within the realm of reason knows that he is a grifter and a con man. He is now also the most powerful man on Earth.”A week after Trump asked for the resignation of United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions...

Donald Trump says that the reason California's forests are on fire is that Californians don't rake their forest floors to clear potential fuel, the way the Finns do. There are a lot of things wrong with this statement, including the fact that ground cover is key to maintaining wildlife habitats. But perhaps more importantly, people in Finland don't rake their forests. The Finnish President Sauli Niinisto denies telling Trump that Finns rake their forest floors (Trump claims he learned about Finnish forest-raking from Niinisto). Finns are posting memes of themselves raking the forest floor, calling the whole thing "rake news" and "raking America great again." "I was with the president of Finland, and he said: 'We have a much different [sic]..., we're a forest nation.' And they spent a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things, and they don't have any problem," he added. But Sauli Niinisto told the Ilta-Sanomat newspaper raking had not come up when they talked. "I me...

A future Trumpian world, including possibly a shattered and increasingly “nationalist” Europe, is no laughing matter. Whatever you may think of President Trump, it’s important to be fair to him. You might have noticed that, on his recent trip to France (“five days of fury”), officially to mourn and praise America’s war dead on the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, he managed to miss his first scheduled ceremony. It was at a cemetery where some of those American war dead were buried. He skipped it, thanks to a little uncomfortable rain, and came late for the second of those events at the Suresnes American Cemetery just outside Paris (this time complaining publicly about the rain). As TomDispatch regular Rajan Menon reminds us today, such acts brought a good deal of derision upon the president in Europe and here (or rather in the world of everywhere that we know as the Internet). What went unreported amid the mockery and the presidential excuses (the preside...

The killers of Jamal Khashoggi, the dissident journalist murdered in Saudi Arabia’s Istanbul consulate, may have used diplomatic immunity to smuggle his body out of the country in their luggage, according to Turkey’s defence minister. Khashoggi’s body has still not been found more than six weeks after he was killed, triggering a wave of global outrage at the kingdom. Donald Trump, the US president, has so far declined to publicly support the conclusion of the CIA that Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, ordered the killing but says he expects a full report on Monday or Tuesday. Riyadh has offered several explanations for what happened but insists the Crown Prince was not involved. At the weekend, Hulusi Akar, the Turkish defence minister, reportedly said the journalist’s killers may have taken his body parts out of Turkey. “One probability is that they left the country three to four hours after committing the murder. They may have taken out Kha...
