Maddow reveals the book ‘you want to read’ to understand Trump’s unexplained ties to Russia

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Monday offered high praise for a new book detailing President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia.

The book Crime in Progress: Inside the Steele Dossier and the Fusion GPS Investigation of Donald Trump was written by Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch, the co-founders of Fusion GPS.

“I’ve read kind of all the books on this subject. I mean, not like there’s a whole library of them, but there’s a number of books on this subject,” Maddow noted. “This is the one you want to read.”

“The reason I think this book is sort of the one you should read of all the books written about this subject is because I feel fairly steeped in this matter and I learned something on every page,” Maddow noted.

The host interviewed Simpson and Fritsch, who discussed why actions by Congressional Republicans backfired and allowed the book to be published — plus the “enduring mystery” over Trump’s ties to Russia.

Trying to ‘shame’ some into voting her way? She never criticized Justice Ginsberg when she called me a ‘faker’. Both should recuse themselves on all Trump, or Trump related, matters!”

If Bloomberg is so rich, why does he steal workers’ wages?

Published

on

Michael Bloomberg has been pummeled over the treatment of women at his media and data company. Yet that is not the only blemish on the employment record of Bloomberg L.P. The company also has a serious problem with wage theft.

Violation Tracker lists a total of $70 million in penalties paid by Bloomberg for wage and hour violations, putting it in 32nd place among large corporations. Yet many of the companies higher on the list – such as Walmart, FedEx, and United Parcel Service – employ far more people than the roughly 20,000 at Bloomberg.

Tennessee Christians are replacing health insurance with ‘sharing ministries’ that require people to live Godly lives: report

On Tuesday, Brett Kelman of The Tennessean wrote about a spike in the uninsured rate in Tennessee — driven in part by 31,000 Christians in the state foregoing health insurance in favor of church-backed "sharing ministries."

These ministries are pitched as alternatives to medical coverage, but they are not health insurance at all — rather, they are better described as religious crowdfunding ventures where fellow congregants may cover your medical bills. But the key word is may. According to Kelman, "these groups don't actually guarantee any payment, and if you break their rules by smoking pot or having unmarried sex, you are on your own."
