Trump 2020 Chief Says There Was ‘Never Any Help’ From Russia. That’s Not True.

Mulvaney Warned Nielsen Not To Bring Up Russia’s Election Interference To Trump

Before she was booted, former DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen tried to bring up efforts to head off Russian meddling in the upcoming presidential election, one of her department’s primary responsibilities. White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney warned her off, saying that it “wasn’t a great subject and should be kept below [Trump’s] level,” since the President reacted so viscerally to an issue he saw as undermining his 2016 win. The White House was apparently so opposed to dealing with the...

Trump Swamp: Interior Secretary David Bernhardt Is In Some Trouble

To be fair, this investi...

California Assembly bill on consumer loans will only end up hurting the poor

President Trump has made unprecedented strides in undoing stifling and harmful regulations in an effort to remove the government’s chokehold on consumers and small businesses. Those efforts are bearing fruit in the strong economy we are experiencing today. Despite the Administration’s successes in this area, however, state legislatures around the country are working overtime to block Trump’s antiregulatory agenda. One such effort is happening in my home state of California and concerns the regul...

One April Tax Day, 10 tax tasks

Tax Day every April is the biggie for individual taxpayers. That's when our annual Form 1040 is due. And yes, I know this year there are two Tax Days, since Patriot Day celebrants in Maine and Massachusetts get until April 17 to send in their federal returns. But most of us must meet the April 15 deadline, so that's what I focus on in this post. Completing a 1040, however, is not the only mid-April tax deadline.  It's just one of the 10 tax tasks listed below that many taxpayers also must make ...
