‘So much crime’: Here’s how we know the Trump family is ‘probably the final targets of these probes’

Published

on

Reporter Garrett Graff, who wrote a massive story for Wired about the 17 investigations swirling around President Donald Trump, went on CNN Tuesday to talk about why the president and his family should be very worried about what’s to come.

The biggest problem for the president, said Graff, is that investigators have secured cooperating witnesses in all 17 of the probes.

“One of the things that should make the president and his family really nervous is that, in some of these cases, it appears almost everyone else involved in the conspiracy is cooperating with investigators except for the Trump family,” he explained. “That’s a very dangerous place for them to be, knowing that they are probably the final targets of those probes.”

Graff also pointed out that the sheer amount of potential criminality being probed by investigators gives prosecutors massive leverage to make people flip on one another.

“One of the things that just is so remarkable in all of this is the sheer amount of unrelated criminality that everyone else seemingly in this campaign was involved in,” he said “Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Michael Cohen — there’s so much crime taking place here that prosecutors have so much leverage when they’re doing this investigation of the president.”

Conservative suggests Trump’s racist rhetoric will incite worse than ‘send her back’ chants: ‘One shudders to wonder’

on

In a column for the Washington Post, conservative Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Kathleen Parker said the refusal by Republican lawmakers and the evangelical community to condemn Donald Trump's racist rhetoric is paving the way for something far worse than mere "send her back" chants.

Under a headline that bluntly states, "Those who don’t condemn Trump’s racism are complicit in his bigotry," Parker gets right to her opinion of the president, writing, "Going out on a limb here: President Trump is a racist. And a sexist. And a xenophobic nationalist. Among other things. Not to name call or anything."

BUSTED: Leaked drug exec emails showed them encouraging opioid abuse to the point people would eat them ‘like Doritos’

Published

on

On Friday, the Washington Post published excerpts from a damning series of emails released in a landmark case in Cleveland around the irresponsibility of drug manufacturers and suppliers in contributing to the opioid crisis.

In one email exchange, Victor Borelli, an account manager for pharmaceuticals corporation Mallinckrodt, told KeySource Medical vice president Steve Cochrane that 1,200 bottles of 30mg Oxycodone tablets had been shipped, to which Cochrane replied, "Keep 'em comin'! Flyin' out of there. It's like people are addicted to these things or something. Oh, wait, people are..." and Borelli responded, "Just like Doritos keep eating. We'll make more."

Here’s the ugly racist history behind tipping — and how it still persists today

Published

on

On Saturday, writing for Politico, minister and civil rights activist Rev. Dr. William Barber applauded House Democrats' plans to not only raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2024, but eliminate the much lower "tipped wage" of $2.13 an hour and require tipped workers to also be paid at least the minimum.

This is important, wrote Barber, because the roots of businesses forcing their workers to rely on tips for a proper wage is deeply rooted in America's history of racial tension.
