A night after nonsensically (and disgustingly) blaming the FBI for spending too much time on the Russia investigation at the expense of preventing last week’s Florida school shooting, President Trump continued to vent his spleen on Twitter. In the span of several Sunday-morning tweets, the president trained his ire...More »]]>Benjamin Hartpoliticsadam schiffrobert muellerrussia investigationpresident trump<![CDATA[Trump Blames Florida School Shooting on Russia Investigation]]>, 18 Feb 2018 15:10:00 GMT

In a Saturday night tweet, President Trump falsely suggested that the FBI’s attention to the Russia investigation left them unable to prevent last week’s high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, which left 17 people dead:

One day after Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals and detailed how Russian operatives sought to disrupt the 2016 presidential election — mostly in support of Donald Trump — the president was once again trying to discredit the idea that he was the intended beneficiary of the Kremlin’s efforts....More »]]>Chas Dannerrussia investigationfacebook adstwitterrobert muellerdonald trumpfacebook2016 electionpolitics<![CDATA[Report: Kushner Requests More Intel Than Any Non-NSC Employee at White House]]>, 17 Feb 2018 21:10:24 GMT

President Trump’s national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, acknowledged on Saturday that the evidence that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election is now “incontrovertible” in light of Friday’s Justice Department indictment of 13 Russian nationals for “information warfare” during the U.S. election.

The White House on Thursday issued a statement blaming the NotPetya cyberattack, which centered on Ukraine but affected computers around the world, on the Russian government and promising that Russia would face “international consequences” because of it.

The statement, coming hours after the U.K. government also accused...More »]]>Jonah Sheppforeign policyrussia hackinghackingrussiapresident trump<![CDATA[How the Hollywood Lawyer for Trump’s Mistresses Turns Celebrity Sex Scandals Into Cash]]>, 17 Feb 2018 00:41:22 GMTDonald Trump may have more paid-off mistresses than paid-up hotels, as Ronan Farrow reports in his latest investigation for The New Yorker.

Last month the Republican leadership of Idaho pursued a very innovative approach to lowering health insurance premiums for young and health people: just blatantly violating the Affordable Care Act to let insurers discriminate against older and sicker people.

Earlier this month, in response to complaints about rising health insurance...More »]]>Ed Kilgorepreexisting conditionshealth care discriminationalex azardepartment of health and human servicesstate waiversblue cross of idahoron wydenaffordable care actbruce otterpoliticsinsurance companiesidaho<![CDATA[The IMF Warns Trump’s Tax Cuts Could Trigger a Global ‘Race to the Bottom’]]>, 16 Feb 2018 23:02:44 GMT

Last October, the International Monetary Fund released a paper arguing that inequality was undermining global economic growth — and thus, contrary to supply-side dogma, developed nations did not need to choose between progressive tax policies and growth-enhancing ones.

It’s not a big surprise, given Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross’s well-known protectionist sentiments, and the very nature of the rarely used legal authority Trump asked him to explore, which more or less presumes ill will from countries that are expanding exports to the U.S. But it’s still big breaking...More »]]>Ed Kilgoresteelgary cohnaluminumsteven mnuchinpennsylvaniaanti-dumpingsection 232rex tillersontradedonald trumpjames mattischinawilbur rosstrade warpoliticstariffsrick sacconepa-18<![CDATA[Rick Scott: The FBI Director Must Resign (for a Mistake He Didn’t Make)]]>, 16 Feb 2018 21:41:19 GMT

Donald Trump has been lying to the public about his position in the (current) debate over Dreamers since the day it began.

This is one of those weeks when people who hate partisanship seem vindicated. Despite the pretty clear availability of a Dreamers-for-border-funding deal on immigration, the Senate killed that and every other proposal put to a vote yesterday.
