Former FDA chief Scott Gottlieb has rejoined the venture world — but he hasn’t forgotten Juul

Scott Gottlieb, the former Food and Drug Administration chief, became known during his tenure for his efforts to regulate the tobacco and e-cigarette industries — and for his particular focus on Juul, the fast-growing e-cigarette company that Gottlieb squarely blames for creating a “youth epidemic” of e-cigarette use by teenagers. Indeed, when he announced that he would be stepping down from his post in early March, it seemed Gottlieb had dealt the tobacco industry a winning hand. There was e...

Democrats claim Barr is in contempt for failing to re...

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 “...

The detail is based on notes that Don McGahn’s chief of staff took in 2017. The report leaves open the possibility the Burr may have been briefing the White House on th...

Collusion Clingers and Their Flat-Earth Forebears

Even after Christopher Columbus sailed from Spain to the New World and back, some naysayers surely clung to their shattered superstitions like life preservers after a shipwreck. “Who cares what Columbus says?” they likely whined. “The Earth IS flat. Columbus must have turned around and come home before he fell over the edge.”Today’s Democrats resemble those 15th-century bitter-enders. No matter what, many insist that Donald Trump and Russia colluded to win the White House. Even after special cou...

Mueller investigation was a national embarrassment

More than $25 million — that’s how much of your money the Democrats wasted on Robert Mueller’s embarrassing and fruitless Russia witch hunt. And make no mistake, a witch hunt it was. In a letter to Congress that sent shockwaves through the anti-Trump establishment and pathologically biased mainstream media, Attorney General Robert Barr revealed that Mueller’s investigation revealed absolutely no evidence of collusion between anyone involved with the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

The North Carolina Republican’s panel has been conducting the only bipartisan probe, and one that’s lasted even longer than Mueller’s. He’s previously said that it had yet to find any collusion between ...

Meet The Lone US Attorney Leading Trump’s Non-Citizen Voting Crusade

There’s nothing to suggest that non-citizen voting was ever a pet interest of Bobby Higdon’s. During the almost quarter-century he spent as a federal prosecutor in North Carolina, Higdon’s main priority was drug crimes. In his subsequent brief stint in private practice at a Raleigh firm, he focused on white collar criminal defense. But since becoming U.S. attorney for the Eastern District in September 2017, Higdon has led the crusade against non-citizen voting. No other U.S. attorney in the c...
