Trump Spends Meeting With Twitter’s Jack Dorsey Whining About His Follower Count

President Donald Trump is completely hung up on his Twitter follower count. And he let the social media giant’s CEO know it. According to a Washington Post report, Trump spent much of Tuesday’s meeting with Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, among others, complaining that the site was artificially deflating how many followers he has. Dorsey reportedly tried to soothe the President, telling him that fluctuating follower counts often indicate Twitter’s attempt to purge bots or fake accounts from the site. ...

The Meaning and Implications of the Mueller Report

I have finally finished reading the Mueller Report, slowly and with care. In one sense, the Report is more accessible than its intimidating four-hundred-plus pages may at first appear. The executive summaries of Volumes I and II are short, clear, and illuminating. Before voting in the 2020 primaries or general election, every literate American might consider reading them. On the other hand, it may be challenging for readers who are not sophisticated lawyers to figure out what is going on in...

Giuliani Spins Report: ‘Nothing Wrong With Taking Information From Russians’

President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani on Sunday defended the Trump campaign’s attempts to accept foreign help during the 2016 election. “Any candidate in the whole world in America would take information,” Giuliani told CNN’s Jake Tapper in an interview. “Who says it’s even illegal?” he asked, adding later: “There’s nothing wrong with taking information from Russians.” While accepting foreign campaign help is illegal, Mueller said in his redacted final report released Thursday that he...

This Week: A Report Much Worse Than The Public Was Led To Expect

Going into this week, we knew we’d get the Mueller report — and on Monday the Department of Justice told us when: Thursday. That announcement reportedly set off a wave of anxiety among White House officials about what the report would reveal they told the special counsel. In the days before the report went public, Trump tried to distract the public with attention-grabbing antics, touting a plan to bus asylum seekers to sanctuary cities and, in one characteristic tweet, demanding that someone “...

Now, we have almost 500 pages of content, much of which comes right from the source. Here are some of the most telling quotes in Muell...
