So much still unresolved from the Trump era installed in 2016, and continued through 2020, a Russian intelligence operation. Hard to tell whether it ranks with Robert Hanssen, Aldrich Ames, or even Operation Pandora, the plan to foment a US race war in the 1960s, although the Trump win could...

It’s pretty much a given now that sometime between Monday and Wednesday, the House will pass and send to the Senate an article of impeachment against the Malignant Mangoturd. This fact seems to have penetrated Trump’s fantasy world, because he is already considering who should be on his defense team....

I miss Adam Schiff. Seems like the last time he appeared in the news was, let’s see, 30 years ago? Or does it just seem that way? Well, he’s still a thorn in Donald Trump’s side. And he still has a deep understanding of our Constitution that has somehow eluded...

The impeachment trial of Donald Trump is ending exactly the way that it began. The Trump defense began the day, and their arguments were the same pathetic, thin gruel that they led off with. They blamed the Democrats for a purely partisan impeachment, claimed that they failed to prove their...
