GOP congressmen speak to Fox News (screen grab)

Fox News on Thursday ceased discussion about an alleged anti-Trump “secret society” in the FBI after the notion was revealed as a joke.

According to TV Eyes, Fox News made 90 mentions of the so-called “secret society” in January. The network and GOP guests alleged that text message showed that FBI agents were out to get President Donald Trump.

However, text messages obtained by ABC News on Wednesday suggested that FBI agents were joking when they used the term “secret society.”

But that report was never mentioned by Fox News and there is no record of a clarification from the conservative network.

Media Matters’ Lis Power counted 20 mentions of “secret society” just on the Tuesday and Wednesday editions Fox & Friends, widely considered to be Trump’s favorite morning show.

GOP officials are working frantically behind the scenes to try to keep the president on script at the rally, worried that he will use the forum to attack Kemp and other state GOP officials who have resisted his pressure, according to a person familiar with the discussions," The Washington Post reported Saturday.

Trump ‘facing a rapid decline’ as he wallows in ‘rage and denial’ over election loss: report

Published

President Donald Trump's mental health since losing the 2020 presidential election was the focus of a new analysis by New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker that was published online Saturday.

"Over the past week, President Trump posted or reposted more than 130 messages on Twitter lashing out at the results of an election he lost. He mentioned the coronavirus pandemic now reaching its darkest hours four times — and even then just to assert that he was right about the outbreak and the experts were wrong," Baker reported under the headline, "Trump’s Final Days of Rage and Denial."

Will we ever know how much money Trump and his family squeezed out of his presidency?

Welcome to another edition of What Fresh Hell?, Raw Story’s roundup of news items that might have become controversies under another regime, but got buried – or were at least under-appreciated – due to the daily firehose of political pratfalls, unhinged tweet storms and other sundry embarrassments coming out of the current White House.

Four years ago, a victorious Donald Trump insisted that he had only lost the popular vote due to widespread fraud while raising tens of millions of dollars for his inauguration. Now, as his baseless, often goofy lawsuits get laughed out of courtroom after courtroom, a defeated Trump and his allies are raising tens of millions of dollars from his easily-enraged MAGA base to "stop the steal." And the lion's share of the $207 million Trump has raised since the election hasn't been spent on his legal campaign, but will instead fund his new political slush fund, among other things.
