As Trump’s one term winds to a thankful close, one of the largest scandals remains seemingly forgotten and bizarrely unexplained.  There not only has never been a counter-intelligence investigation into Trump’s connections with Russia and Russia’s interference in the 2016 election — but we have learned that this is because that investigation was secretly thwarted...

A loser’s victory rally, what a message. In his Valdosta, Georgia speech on Saturday Trump will essentially repeat his 46 minute Facebook rant from Wednesday with a few local references and additional stupid ad libs. Save that hour for more productive activities that don’t involve super-spreading. They’re “not dumb in Georgia” but...

Andrew McCabe references a suspicion from the first days of the Mueller investigation that Trump simply needs his comeuppance and a further push into a post-political life.  Cuomo: You think there's more bad stuff about him that we don't know?

Trump sells off his private helicopter after losing the election, so perhaps he’s cash-short, even as he’s running another grift, claiming he’d run again in 2024. However, there’s other shenanigans possible in the remaining 70 days, including a small-scale international military action that in itself could cause a continuing problem...

Only two? Seriously, if Donald Trump had been an assistant cruller fryer at Dunkin’ Donuts, he’d have long been fired and put under observation by now, but because he’s only president of the United States, he gets a pass. Do we have to wait until he appoints his horse — or,...
