How does one celebrate Independence Day in a country where our President has declared all out war on the free and independent press?

Well, it’s been about three months since Alex Morris’s “Why Trump Is Not Mentally Fit to Be President” ran in Rolling Stone, and I think you’d be hard pressed to find a mental health professional to say that our President, in that time, has shown any signs of improvement.

It’s the piss that gets the press, but the leaked intelligence dossier also claims that Trump was offered a 19% stake in the Russian oil company Rosneft in exchange for lifting sanctions as President

As we discussed yesterday, an intelligence report assembled by a former MI6 operative in Moscow concerning Trump’s extensive ties to the government of Vladimir Putin went public thanks to Buzzfeed and CNN.
