Investigative reporter Seymour Hersh: The world is ‘run by ignoramuses, wackos and psychotics’
Seymour Hersh is one of America's greatest investigative reporters. Over his career of more than 50 years, he has covered many of the most important stories of that period. He helped expose the My Lai massacre during the Vietnam War, in which hundreds of unarmed Vietnamese civilians were killed by American soldiers.

Writing for the conservative Trump-skeptic site The Bulwark on Tuesday, former Tea Party Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) scorched his former colleagues, Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Mark Meadows (R-NC) for plotting to take down former special counsel Robert Mueller at Wednesday's House hearing, rather than actually listen to what he has to say about Russia's involvement in the 2016 presidential election and President Donald Trump's efforts to thwart the probe.
"Jordan and Meadows belong to a generation of conservatives who supposedly believed that it was Congress's job to hold the executive branch accountable," wrote Walsh. "But they're not doing it ... Jordan and Meadows are no longer defenders of the law but apologists for a president who abuses it."
