      Trump’s press secretary doesn’t think Trump will get over his anger at Jeff Sessions

      “That frustration certainly hasn’t gone away, and I don’t think it will.” Tuesday morning on Fox & Friends, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that President Donald Trump is “frustrated and disappointed” by Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s decision to recuse himself from the ongoing investigation...

      The real reason Jeff Sessions is putting up with Trump’s crap

      The attorney general is deeply committed to an ideological agenda — and working hard to turn it into reality. President Donald Trump, despite his reality TV reputation, has only fired two people — and in both cases, it’s caused more problems for him than it solved. So while he seems to be running out of patience with Attorney General Jeff...

      Jared Kushner’s Russia defense raises more questions than it answers

      Maybe the Russians shouldn’t have gone to Jared. Jared Kushner really wants everyone to believe that he did nothing wrong. Donald Trump’s son-in-law and top aide released a public statement about the Russia scandal on Monday morning, a preview of what he’s going to say in closed-door congressional testimony this week. “I did not...

      Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, and why Trump is so afraid of it, explained

      President Trump is furious with Robert Mueller, the special counsel leading the probe into the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia. The president is so angry, in fact, that he’s hinted at a willingness to fire Mueller if he looks too closely at Trump’s personal finances. Such an investigation, Trump told the New York...

      Trump once said Jon Huntsman was “weak.” Now he’s picked him to be the Russian ambassador.

      Trump once said Jon Huntsman was “weak.” Now he’s picked him to be the Russian ambassador.

      He’s got his work cut out for him. Donald Trump once slammed former Utah governor and GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman as a “lightweight” and accused him of “[giving] away our country to China” when he was the US ambassador there. Now, Trump has decided to reward him with the toughest diplomatic gig in Washington today:...

      No collusion “yet,” says Kellyanne Conway to Fox News, holding up pieces of paper

      On Wednesday night, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway told Sean Hannity on his Fox News show that there was not “yet” evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, despite the recent revelation that Donald Trump Jr. met with a Kremlin-connected attorney during the campaign on the premise of being promised,...

      The Trump-Russia scandal: everything we know so far, explained

      What the publicly known evidence currently shows about potential collusion. It now seems clear that top advisers to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign were aware of a Russian government effort to help Trump win the 2016 election — and that at least some of them were open to working with the Russians to that end. And we’ve long known...

      The blackmail factor: Trumpworld’s Russia lies are a major risk to national security

      The Russians know the truth and Trump knows they know. The Trump team’s habit of lying in public about its contacts with various official and unofficial emissaries of the Russian government is problematic on its own terms, but especially troubling because it raises the possibility that American foreign policy could be influenced by the fear...

      President Trump is stalling Congress’s push to punish Russia for election interference

The bill, co-sponsored by Sens. Ben Cardin (D-MD) and John McCain (R-AZ), would impose new sanctions...
