Published

President Donald Trump attacked an American newspaper for reporting a story that made him look bad.

“Do you believe that the Failing New York Times just did a story stating that the United States is substantially increasing Cyber Attacks on Russia. (sic) This is a virtual act of Treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our Country … also, not true,” the commander-in-chief tweeted on Saturday evening.

“Anything goes with our corrupt news media today,” Trump argued.

“They will do, or say, whatever it takes, with not even the slightest thought of consequence,” he continued.

“These are true cowards and without doubt, the enemy of the people,” Trump added.

Published

on

In the panoply of contradictory and incoherent defenses of Donald Trump, a favorite of Republicans has been to harp on the claim that witnesses to Trump's extortion scheme against Ukraine were all "second-hand" or "third-hand."

Mike Pompeo wants to run for Senate — but can’t figure out a graceful way to resign: report

Published

For months, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been dogged by rumors that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is trying to recruit him to run for Senate in his home state of Kansas — a claim that he has flatly denied.

Pompeo, who has largely remained in President Donald Trump's good graces, has come under national scrutiny for his role in the Ukraine scandal, which has seen several foreign service officers and national security officials testifying that Trump set up a backchannel with his lawyer Rudy Giuliani to Ukrainian leadership to demand political help against former Vice President Joe Biden.
