Oh, and Trump’s detractors are “satanic.” Because of course they are. In a deeply corrupt move that would have made Richard Nixon vomit his small intestines, Donald Trump recently commuted the sentence of his friend, confidant, and chief ratfucker Roger Stone. Translation: Stone was involved in some hinky, illegal shit,...

The Trump crime spree continues and the carnage cannot be commuted because Roger Stone remains a convicted felon. Trump’s minions have all but declared victory now that Trump put on a mask, like 134,000 deaths don’t count. x Retweet if you agree trump is the most corrupt president in United...

Four months after the Beltway press badly failed in its coverage of special counsel Robert Mueller's congressional testimony on the Russia scandal, the D.C. press corps has a chance at redemption this week with the first public impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

What a difference a new administration makes. After spending years as self-appointed patrollers of so-called political optics, relentlessly ticketing Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for supposedly major and minor infractions, the D.C. press has dropped that pursuit under Donald Trump. No longer obsessing over how things look or bemoaning a...

Last week, former special counsel Robert Mueller's congressional testimony confirmed once again that Donald Trump has engaged in serious wrongdoing, including likely obstruction of justice. It also raised the possibility that Trump could be charged with crimes after he leaves office. Mueller’s testimony on Wednesday also provided something of a...

Progressives and a smattering of non-cowardly conservatives have gone on record as saying Donald Trump is a straight-up criminal who is (badly) masquerading as a pr*sident.

It’s amazing what a verbal recap of the major conclusions of a report that’s been out for nearly six weeks can do. Seriously, did anyone read this thing?
