Trump's petulance reportedly led to fewer verbal briefings on Russia

So if you bristled every time someone at your office brought you key information that was crucial to your job performance — and you did it so often that they eventually stopped giving you that information — you’d be fired, right?

The Lincoln Project addresses you in Russian

with appropriate subtitles, in a new ad titled “Fellow Traveler” Given the title, the fact that Putin thinks the greatest  tragedy of the 20th Century was the fall of the USSR, his role  as a KGB figure, and supported by the music of the ad, this is another winner. Oh, and for those of you…

The Face of Evil

It’s been clear since October 2016 that Vladimir Putin has been interfering in our elections, and that he’s planning to do it again.
