It was a tough three-day weekend for the president’s pro-bono lawyer Rudy Giuliani. After an unexpected comment from the Mueller investigation disputing BuzzFeed’s Trump Tower Moscow reporting, Giuliani made a run of gaffe-attack media appearances that deprioritized the rare piece of special counsel news that was effectively in...More »]]>Matt Stiebdonald trumprudy giulianirussia investigationpolitics<![CDATA[The Government Shutdown (Probably) Isn’t Ending Any Time Soon]]>, 22 Jan 2019 22:45:29 GMT

Over the weekend, Donald Trump reached an agreement on a grand bargain to end the government shutdown — with his own vice-president and son-in-law.

On February 3, CBS will air the Super Bowl, a four-hour glorification of a sport linked to traumatic brain injuries. It will not, however, air a commercial promoting medical marijuana, one of the substances football players say mitigate the effects of playing bumper cars with your skull.

Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s attorney-of-sorts, is either a blithering imbecile, or a subtle genius carrying out a brilliant defense strategy on his client’s behalf. The middle ground between these two alternatives is increasingly untenable. Oddly enough, even though the two theories are mutually exclusive, Giuliani’s performance over the last two...More »]]>Jonathan Chaitrudy giulianirussia investigationthe national interestrobert muellerdonald trumppoliticstop story<![CDATA[On Brexit, Theresa May Is Out of Ideas and Running Out of Time]]>, 22 Jan 2019 15:13:07 GMT
