Republicans around here are now complete lambs to Trump. Except for one.

Last summer, after President Trump had been implicated in illegally trying to influence an election (by making hush-money payments to a porn star and then lying about it), I asked a searching question of his party: “Hello, Republicans? Are any of you from the Grand Old Party still out there?” It wasn’t that I thought […]

Back in 2004 I was writing an article for The Atlantic about John Kerry’s foreign policy. I did a range of interviews for that piece and one of them was with then-Senator Biden, in his office one evening up on Capitol Hill. It was loose and unstructured. When you talk with Biden he’s thinking out loud, discussing ideas, n...

We Now Know What Happened After NYT Reported Rosenstein Floated Taping Trump

After the New York Times reported back in September that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein floated wearing a wire to secretly record President Trump, it was a bit surprising that he remained in his role. But now, thanks to new reporting from the Washington Post, it’s been revealed that Rosenstein had to fight for his job in the wake of that report. After the report came out, Rosenstein offered to resign in a meeting with then-White House chief of staff John Kelly, but said he didn’t “wan...

Trump tells Americans measles vaccination 'so important'

President Donald Trump on Friday urged Americans to get vaccinated as a measles outbreak spread across the country, reaching the highest number of cases since 2000. "Vaccinations are so important," Trump told reporters at the White House. The scale of the measles outbreak in the United States -- with 695 recorded cases since January 1 -- is dwarfed by the situation in Ukraine, which has clocked up some 25,000 patients and Madagascar with 46,000 cases of the disease.

A Nation at War With Itself

The future does not bode well for a country that is so deeply divided.
