The generals who serve Trump, why they do it, and at what cost

An interesting question was posed in the Washington Post today… “Is it still possible to honorably serve in the Trump administration?” The article was inspired in large part by a recent profile of Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis in the New Yorker, which included the following passage. …When Mattis asked Michèle Flournoy, the former Undersecretary […]

Sally Yates, called in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify about Russian interference in American politics, is asked instead why she didn’t support Trump’s Muslim ban as acting Attorney General, the national security threat posed by Secretary Clinton’s email security, and who she thinks might have leaked news of Michael Flynn’s treason to the press.

A few quick things about this afternoon’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee by former acting Attorney General Sally Yates. 1. There weren’t any real bombshells. Yates pretty much said what people thought that she’d say… that it was brought to her attention that Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor Michael Flynn had lied about his […]

Plans to lift Russian sanctions continued to be refined even after the Trump administration was warned of Flynn’s illegal communications with the Kremlin

I’ve been in Kentucky these past few days, cooking and cleaning for my mother, who just had hip replacement surgery, so I’m a bit behind on the news. For the most part, it doesn’t look as though I missed much. Trump apparently alluded to a terrorist attack in Sweden that had never actually happened, and […]
