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.”

McGhan,...

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...

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...

Michael Cohen, like most people who do crimes, does not want to go to jail for doing crimes. Unfortunately, his chances of that do not look great!

On Friday, prosecutors with the Southern District of New York released their sentencing memo for Cohen’s case, which recommended that President Trump’s former lawyer face a sentence of 42 months in prison and a $100,000 fine for the crimes of tax...

Trump Basically Just Admitted Appointing Matt Whitaker Was All About the Mueller Investigation

Folks, I’ll be honest with you: I’m starting to think that President Donald Trump is not only a viciously corrupt abscess on the underbelly of American politics, but that he’s incredibly stupid to boot. I mean, why else would he essentially admit that the only reason he picked (laughably unqualified) Matt Whitaker to replace Jeff Sessions as acting Attorney General was because he wanted...

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...

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...

Less than a month after being found guilty of eight felonies, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has decided that one trial is enough, and entered a guilty plea with the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller in a Washington, D.C. courtroom on Friday. The deal is reportedly predicated on Manafort’s cooperation with Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and...

Meeting with Putin<em></em></a>

In a court filing on Friday, Donald Trump’s so-called “coffee boy,” former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, claimed that both Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions supported his proposal in early 2016 to set up a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

If true, this acknowledgment is particularly problematic for Sessions, who has previously claimed, including in...

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.

Rod Rosenstein will likely no longer be the deputy attorney general by the end of Monday, according to multiple reports, ending months of speculation about his future in the Trump administration. (UPDATE: Or maybe not! See below.) The how and why of his departure, however, remains very unclear.

Axios reported that Rosenstein verbally resigned to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly on Monday,...

When last we saw lukewarm attorney and presidential whipping boy Rudy Giuliani, it was just before everyone left for the holidays, and he was doing what he tends to do best: Make a complete and total fool of himself for no apparent reason other than he’s just not very good at his job.

Well, Christmas is over, 2019 is right around the corner, and I’m sorry to report that Rudy remains fully...

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.

Michael Cohen<em></em> </a>

Ever since FBI agents raided the New York office, hotel room, and home of Donald Trump’s fixer Michael Cohen nearly two weeks ago, multiple stories and TV news segments have focused on whether Cohen would flip.

Finally, some of those political commentators are beginning to address the elephant in the room: Why would Trump’s personal “lawyer” need to worry about flipping in the first place?...
