Republicans Won't Stop Demanding That Everyone Apologize to Trump

Apologies in Washington—a city that runs exclusively on power and privilege—never really carried much weight before Donald Trump became president, and are even more meaningless now that the GOP’s “facts not feelings” crew has taken a wrecking ball to the myth of civility politics entirely.

Nevertheless, there are still myopic wienies out there eager to lap up the idea that simply being nice to...

Attorney General William Barr announced on Friday that he will deliver a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election to Congress by “mid-April, if not sooner.”

The news comes after more than a week of wrangling between Democrats and Republicans over the report’s release.

In a letter addressed to the leaders of the...

House Democrats formally issued a subpoena on Monday for former White House Counsel Don McGahn to testify before the House Judiciary Committee.

In a short statement accompanying the subpoena, Democratic committee chair Rep. Jerry Nadler called McGahn a “critical witness to many of the alleged instances of obstruction of justice and other misconduct described in the Mueller report.”

Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee are having a little bit of a freakout today, as fallout from the Mueller report continues to annoy everyone on Capitol Hill.

During a committee hearing on Thursday morning, Republican Rep. Mike Conaway demanded that Democratic committee chair Adam Schiff step down from his leadership position over Schiff’s insistence that, actually, a lot...

Trump Is Super Cool With Robert Mueller Now for Some Reason

After months of calling him a conflicted partisan, and repeatedly accusing him of conducting an illegal “witch hunt,” President Donald Trump would like an exhausted nation to know that, actually, Robert Mueller is super cool, and that he has no problem with releasing the special counsel’s full report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Asked on Monday whether Mueller—whose as-of-now...

Racist Islamophobe and conspiracy theorist Jeanine Pirro returned to the air Saturday night on Fox News after a two-week hiatus, and let’s just say she’s learned nothing from her time in timeout. In fact, she’s elevated her vitriol a notch.

Pirro’s show, Justice with Judge Jeanine, was pulled earlier this month due to comments she made about Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar. Pirro had said that...

Donald Trump admitted on Thursday that, yes, Russia did in fact help him get elected president of the United States in 2016—although he maintained he had “nothing to do with” their efforts to aid his campaign.

Trump’s acknowledgement-slash-denial marks the first time the president has actually copped to the core element of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s now-completed investigation, which...

Attorney General William Barr has sent Congress a summary of what he says are the main findings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report into Russian interference in the 2016 elections. The letter says that while Mueller’s report “does not conclude that [President Donald Trump] committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

According to Barr, Mueller’s investigation also “did not find...

Former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton took to the pages of the Washington Post on Wednesday to lay out her thoughts on impeaching President Trump in light of the report by special counsel Robert Mueller released last week.

Clinton, in her characteristic fashion, lays out a moderate approach to the idea of impeachment, encouraging lawmakers to consider this a patriotic...

Democrats Who Voted to Confirm Barr: Whoops!!!

The Democratic senators who voted to confirm William Barr as attorney general are having some regrets, according to Politico. These new doubts were spurred by the news yesterday that special counsel Robert Mueller wrote a letter to Barr expressing concerns about his summary of Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election, followed by Barr’s appalling performance in his Senate...

Congressional Democrats Relieved They Don't Have to Push Impeachment

Donald Trump is president. As the New Yorker’s Osita Nwanevu said last night, that alone should have been reason for Democrats to pursue impeachment right from the beginning. Nancy Pelosi has not agreed, warning Democrats not to give a political “gift” to the Republicans by talking impeachment once they took the House. With Robert Mueller’s decision not to recommend obstruction of justice...

After a speed-read, Stephen Colbert gives his extended take on the Mueller report

The Late Show tapes around five in the afternoon, so that gave Stephen Colbert and his staff (who one can only hope got at least an office pizza party) just six or so hours to obtain, read, and somehow find humor in the just released (if heavily redacted) Mueller report. You know, the one that Donald Trump has been saying totally exonerates him of obstruction of justice and undermining...

Robert Mueller’s near-mythological report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is scheduled to be released to the public today. And although we don’t know the contents of the document—or the degree to which it will be redacted by Attorney General William Barr—President Donald Trump is already handling the impending drop with his usual grace and poise.

Now that the Mueller report is publicly available and America has collectively agreed that everything about its process was completely fine and Donald Trump is now a good president, the nation has had to find new ways to focus its energy—like, say, comparing the black-barred redactions covering the report’s white pages with different outfits Taylor Swift has worn in the past.

Are people being paid for this? I’ll update this blog if I find out, but honestly I’m not sure if I want to know the answer. Earlier today we were discussing what it would take to break the glass of the windows of the G/O media offices, which...

Donald Trump is positively thrilled that the Mueller investigation reportedly found no evidence that he conspired with Russia in 2016. He will probably try and make you forget about the part where Mueller did not exonerate him of any criminal activity.

Here’s a happy fella:

Now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report is finally finished, and allegedly gives President Donald Trump a relatively—albeit not entirely—clean slate moving forward, the White House and its allies spent Monday morning flooding the airwaves with the sort of jubilant victory lap we haven’t seen since Trump won the presidency in 2016.

On NBC’s Today show, press secretary Sarah Huckabee...

Attorney General William Barr kicked off his first of two days of congressional testimony on Wednesday, appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee to answer questions about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election and President Donald Trump’s attempts to influence that investigation. At least, that was ostensibly what he was there to do, but in...
