Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Photos Getty & HBONeil deGrasse Tyson, the fun-lovin’ astrophysicist and TV personality, has been credibly accused of sexual misconduct by four women—one of whom, Thchiya Amet El Maat, alleged that he drugged and raped her while the two were graduate students at the University of Texas in 1984.  Bill Maher, the boundary-pushing comedian, has branded the MeToo movement “scary” and aspects of  it “MeCarthyism” whilst downplaying women’s accounts of inappropria...

This Week: Mulvaney Blows It

This week’s highlights from the impeachment probe: Mulvaney blows it: Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney might not have much time left in President Trump’s good graces. When you’ve lost Sean Hannity, Trump’s often not far behind. During a stunning press briefing on Thursday, Mulvaney made a litany of befuddling admissions, most notably offering that, yes, Trump did mention the conservative conspiracy theory about Hillary Clinton’s email server and Russian election meddling in 2016 w...

The Debunked Biden Allegations Are Incredibly Useful To Dmitry Firtash

It was one month after Ukraine’s bloody February 2014 revolution. Federal prosecutors in Chicago unsealed a bizarre but pointed indictment against Dmytro Firtash, accusing the oligarch gas middleman of bribing Indian officials in a scheme to corner the market on material for the Boeing 787 supply chain. At the same time, Hunter Biden had accepted an offer to take a seat on the board of a troubled Ukrainian gas firm called Burisma — raking in a hefty salary that, critics allege, was in exchang...

The Big Dirty

And there it is, the other quid pro quo. Notorious Ukrainian oligarch Dmitry Firtash would help Rudy and DiGenova and Toensing cook up dirt on Joe Biden. In return, they’d work with Trump to get US corruption charges against Firtash tossed. Firtash has been fighting extradition to the US on federal corruption charges since 2014. From Bloomberg … Associates of a Ukrainian oligarch fighting extradition to the U.S. were working to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden last summer in an ...

Nunes Tries to Use Steele Dossier to Defend Trump During Closed-Door Hearing

Chip Somodevilla/GettyDuring a closed-door impeachment meeting on Capitol Hill, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) brought up a topic that surprised some attendees: the Steele dossier. The context, according to three sources familiar with the episode, was his effort to explain why President Trump might be “upset” about Ukraine. Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee that is leading the impeachment probe, said some of the dossier’s contents dealt with Ukraine, and that the Clintons pa...

Pompeo Trashes Impeachment Inquiry, Says Benghazi Probe Was Fairer

Perry Unfazed By Directive To Consult With Giuliani On Ukraine: ‘I Trusted Him’

Perry Announces Resignation With Video Called ‘The Coolest Job I Ever Had’

Energy Secretary Rick Perry debuted a saccharine video announcing his impending retirement Thursday, entitled “The Coolest Job I Ever Had.” Set to a score not unlike that of sad animal adoption commercials, shots of Perry in slow motion and fuzzy focus chase each other across the screen. With a wry chuckle he recalls: “You know, from my first day on the job in March of 2017, you welcomed me with open arms, even though you probably didn’t know what to expect from this born-and-bred Texan who’d...
