McGahn was a key witness in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, having spent over 30 hours in interviews with Mueller. Mueller’s report, released last month, describes efforts by Trump to have McGahn call Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to convince him to fire...

Looks like Barr is pretty happy to let his disastrous—and occasionally hilarious—appearance today be

Looks like Barr is pretty happy to let his disastrous—and occasionally hilarious—appearance today be

Where where you when conservative vloggers Diamond and Silk were invited to Capitol Hill to complain that people just aren’t watching their videos on Facebook anymore, and then appeared to perjure themselves multiple times?

I know where I was: Sitting at my desk, marveling at the world we live in.

Nevertheless, here we are, with Donald Trump’s favorite YouTube stars appearing before the members...
