BURBANK — As the administration tried to dance on his political grave, Congressman Adam Schiff sounded anything but defeated Thursday, claiming the newly released special-counsel report confirmed — rather than refuted — his charges that the Donald Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

Why Isn’t Assange Charged with ‘Collusion with Russia’?

Prior to the publication of the stolen Democratic-party emails and internal documents, Julian Assange and WikiLeaks exhorted Russian government hackers to send them “new material.”That is what we are told by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of Russian intelligence officers. (I won’t offend anyone by calling them “spies” — after all, they were just doing electronic surveillance authorized by their government, right?) Assange wanted the Russians to rest assured that giving “new material...

Trump Nominates Clowns Herman Cain and Stephen Moore to Bring the Fed to Heel

Bloomberg/Getty“When you think it can’t get any worse, it does,” servile Senate Republicans keep whimpering. The sentiment came up when Trump announced his latest choice for an open Federal Reserve Board seat—former presidential candidate and Trump super PAC head Herman Cain. Until then, Trump’s previous selection for another open seat, Stephen Moore, think tank executive, pundit, and author of Trumponomics, a homage to the president whom he also recommended for the Nobel Prize in Economics, hel...

The president’s actions were not OK. Not by a long shot.

This week, Attorney General William Barr testified before Congress for the first time since he submitted his four-page summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s principle findings from his nearly two year long investigation. Like his cursory initial letter summarizing the special counsel’s conclusions, Barr’s testimony raised more questions than it answered. First, Barr refused to answer whether he had shared the report with the White House, or briefed them about its contents. Second, Barr ref...
