Mueller's rush to sentence Trump associates - an unusual way to treat cooperating witnesses - suggests Russia investigation is ending

Amid the whirlwind of hearings, guilty pleas and sentencing memos that has been Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe in the last few weeks, an unusual pattern has emerged. One of Mueller’s biggest successes as his team investigate 2016 election meddling and possible collusion between Moscow and Donald Trump’s campaign team, has been his ability to get former associates of the president to “flip” and cooperate with him. Among the more high-profile are Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Mi...

HAVANA, CUBA—“Where are you from?”, asked the 20-something as he passed me on the street in Havana. America, I replied. “I love America” he declared, before turning into one of the city’s many restaurants. He likely was a member of Cuba’s growing private workforce. However, opportunities for young Cubans are too few. State controls continue to stifle the economy. Ironically, among the biggest barriers to reform is President Donald Trump, who seems determined to preserve the fading communist dict...

Texas v. U.S: Off the Wall and On the Wall in the Age of Trump

Judge Reed O'Connor's opinion in Texas v. U.S. has declared all of Obamacare unconstitutional based on (in my own view) pretty dicey legal grounds. Commentators are trashing it, predicting that the 5th Circuit will reverse it, and that it has absolutely no chance before the Supreme Court.I have seen this movie before. (In fact, I had a minor supporting role.)Assume that the commentators are right and the judge's arguments are not even close to being persuasive given existing legal precedents. Do...
