Happy third anniversary to this Trump tweet about Russian interference!

Check the date. This tweet sprung from the rich, fertile loam in Donald Trump’s cranium exactly three years ago this morning: x The new joke in town is that Russia leaked the disastrous DNC e-mails, which should never have been written (stupid), because Putin likes me — Donald J.

Washington Post: 'Barr has lit his reputation on fire'

The Washington Post’s editorial board is not pulling any punches in the wake of Attorney General William Barr’s craven, self-serving testimony today.
