Mueller report details the evolution of Russia’s troll farm as it began targeting US politics

BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI/AFP/Getty Images On Thursday, Attorney General William Barr released the long-anticipated Mueller report. With it comes a useful overview of how Russia leveraged U.S.-based social media platforms to achieve its political ends. While we’ve yet to find too much in the heavily redacted text that we didn’t already know, Mueller does recap efforts undertaken by Russia’s mysterious Internet Research Agency or “IRA” to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. The...

How Did Tech Billionaires’ Favorite Dem Become Bernie Sanders’ Co-Chair?

A few weeks before Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) launched his presidential campaign, he and Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) went out for what Khanna thought was going to be a late lunch focused on policy strategy. Over plates of greasy Chinese food, Khanna and Sanders talked about how technology and artificial intelligence are disrupting the economy and driving income inequality, how to help workers affected by those changes, their shared push to end U.S. involvement in the Yemen civil war, and Sanders’ br...

5 theories on why Pete Buttigieg got so popular.

It's a crowded field of Democratic Party candidates, with notables like Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris idling at around 7% and Cory Booker embarrassingly stalled at 3%. So how did Pete Buttigieg break through the pack into 3rd place already? (Only Biden and Sanders outpoll the fast-rising newcomer.)Amber Phillips (at WaPo) has 5 theories, which I'll summarize, interwoven with my commentary.1. He's a "novelty," Phillips says, because he "is from the Midwest, he’s a veteran who served in Afgha...

Bernie Sanders Shines on Fox News

Again, Bernie Sanders is distinguishing himself from his Democratic colleagues on matters of character, confidence, and imagination. The Democratic party has rejected offers from Fox News to host its primary debates. But on Monday night, Sanders did a town hall from Bethlehem, Pa., which sits in one of those now-famous counties that suffered de-industrialization, voted for Barack Obama in 2012, and then went for Donald Trump in 2016. It was a very savvy move. It demonstrated Sanders’s verve, a s...

Bernie Sanders among top one per cent of US earners, newly released tax returns show

Bernie Sanders and his wife made more than $1 million in both 2016 and 2017, newly released tax returns have revealed, shining a light on the wealth of the Left-wing presidential hopeful.  Mr Sanders, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist who sits as an independent in the US Senate, enjoyed the surge of income in part thanks to books he has written about politics.  The 77-year-old released 10 years of tax returns on Monday, following similar moves by rivals who are also seeking the Democratic P...

Trump Unleashes Inferno Of Tweets As Clock Counts Down To Mueller Report

WASHINGTON (AP) — The president isn’t waiting. As Washington counts down the final hours until publication of the redacted special counsel report — now expected Thursday — Donald Trump stepped up his attacks in an effort to undermine potential disclosures on Russia, his 2016 campaign and the aftermath. He unleashed a series of tweets Monday focusing on the previously released summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s conclusions — including a crucial one on obstruction of justice that Trump...

Bernie Sanders Brings a Gun to a Democratic Primary Knife Fight

Mark Makela/GettyIn seeking the 2020 nomination for the presidency, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) had made overtures that he’d operate more firmly within the Democratic Party as the party adopted procedural reforms to accommodate his concerns. The rapprochement was always delicate. And this week it hit a major snag as the senator’s presidential campaign opened fire at one of the Democratic Party’s leading think tanks over a video that its editorially independent news site posted on Sanders’ persona...

Omar Accuses Trump Of Endangering Her Life After 9/11 Video

WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Ilhan Omar says she’s faced increased death threats since President Donald Trump spread around a video that purports to show her being dismissive of the 2001 terrorist attacks. “This is endangering lives,” she said, accusing Trump of fomenting right-wing extremism. “It has to stop.” Her statement late Sunday followed an announcement by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that she has taken steps to ensure the safety of the Minnesota Democrat and the speaker’s call for Trump to t...

Some Thoughts on Buttigieg Taking Off and Warren seeming to be Grounded

To me, the most surprising developments in the Democratic presidential race have been the rise of South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and the failure of Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s campaign to catch hold.  According to betting sites, Buttigieg is a six to one favorite to win the nomination, and Warren a distant 25 to one.  There is a long way until the caucuses and primaries, but here are some guesses why Buttigieg has caught fire and a few thoughts why Warren’s flame has flickered.

"Certainly the president is wishing no ill will, certainly not violence towards anyone," Sanders told ABC News' "This Week" show.

WH: Trump Was ‘Making A Joke’ When He Cited Wikileaks Dozens Of Times In ’16

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made the somewhat ludicrous claim Sunday that President Donald Trump was “making a joke” by repeatedly citing documents published by Wikileaks during the 2016 presidential campaign. Following Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s arrest Thursday, Trump said “I know nothing about WikiLeaks, it’s not my thing.” A quick look at the tape showed the dozens of times Trump mentioned Wikileaks work in speeches during the final weeks of his campaign — af...

Ilhan Omar will not be 'silenced' after Trump attacks over 9/11 comments

One of America's first Muslim congresswomen has vowed not to be silenced after Donald Trump led an attack on her for controversial remarks she made about 9/11. Rep Ilhan Omar of Minnesota sparked a furious row after she characterised the atrocity by saying “some people did something” during a speech in Los Angeles last month to the Council on American-Islamic Relations. On Friday, President Trump tweeted a video tagged “WE WILL NEVER FORGET” which featured footage of the Twin Towers in flame...

Trump wishes 'no ill will' with Tweet on Muslim lawmaker: White House

"Certainly President is wishing no ill will, certainly not violence towards anyone," Sanders told broadcaster ABC News' "This Week" show. Lawmakers from Trump's Republican party have accused Omar of minimizing the 9/11 attacks, while critics of the president say he took Omar's words out of context in order to stoke anti-Muslim sentiment. On Saturday, Trump tweeted a video suggesting that Omar, a U.S. representative from Minnesota, had been dismissive of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

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...
