Robert Mueller's report set to be released amid row over attorney general's 'spinning' of findings

After nearly two years of waiting, America will get some answers straight from Robert Mueller - but not before President Donald Trump’s attorney general has his say.

Many Democrats and liberals are cheering Assange's arrest. That's foolish

Some have argued that Assange isn’t under attack for ‘journalism,’ but for ‘activism.’ That’s a troubling logic to fall for ‘This prosecution is about silencing dissent rather than enforcing the law.’ Photograph: Victoria Jones/PAThe attempted extradition and prosecution of the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange by the United States should be an obvious outrage. It’s a very clear effort by the US government to punish those who expose embarrassing secrets about its actions, and it could set a prec...

Senate GOPers Ram Through Rules Change To Cut Trump Pick Debate Time

Senate Barreling Towards Showdown On Disaster Relief For Puerto Rico

WASHINGTON (AP) — A fight between President Donald Trump and Democrats over hurricane relief for Puerto Rico is imperiling a widely backed disaster aid bill that is a top priority for some of Trump’s Southern GOP allies. The amount of money in dispute is relatively small, but Trump feels antipathy toward the U.S. territory’s government and Senate Republicans are taking a hard line — for now — in denying Democratic demands for more aid for Puerto Rico, which was devastated by back-to-back hurr...

After Mueller, Congress Has To Step Up To The Plate

As Trump and his supporters take a victory lap over Attorney General Bill Barr’s letter summing up the Mueller report, it’s worth noting that claims of “total and complete exoneration” (in the words of press secretary Sarah Sanders) are at odds with what the letter actually says. In fact, while the Mueller Report, according to Barr’s summary, has decided there was no sufficient evidence of conspiracy or coordination, on the issue of obstruction of justice the issue is much murkier. Barr quote...

#ThemToo: Silence over sexual violence on the border is deafening

The media is very vocal about victims of sexual violence — but only when it suits their political agenda. They emphasize “#MeToo,” but they fail to stand up for “#ThemToo.” Since the emergence of the #MeToo movement, activists have eagerly rallied behind numerous women whose claims offered the potential to advance the anti-Trump agenda of the Democrat Party.
