On Thursday, Nicolle Wallace devoted the opening segment of “Deadline: White House” to the details emerging from Congressional questioning of longtime Trump bodyguard Keith Schiller.

Wallace — a former communications strategist for Pres. George W.

on

There’s a growing chorus of U.S. politicians, antitrust scholars and consumer watchdogs calling for stricter antitrust treatment of Amazon, Google, Facebook and other tech giants. Some even say they should be broken up.
