President Donald Trump’s Department of the Interior angrily lashed out on Tuesday after being criticized for spreading a “propaganda video” one week before the election.
It started when controversial Interior Secretary David Bernhardt posted a campaign-style video on Twitter, arguing Trump is a conservationist.
The @realDonaldTrump Administration has accomplished historic feats for conservation, securing the largest investment in our national parks and public lands, opening 4 million acres to new hunting and fishing opportunities, and recovering a record number of endangered species. pic.twitter.com/LoOuCPqJXm

The video was blasted by Tim Fullerton, who ran the department’s digital team during the Obama administration.
“I ran the Interior digital team during President Obama’s re-election in 2012. I would have been fired for doing this,” Fullerton posted on Twitter.
“This is a propaganda video created with your tax dollars meant to bolster the President’s chances of being re-elected. This is way outside the lines,” he concluded.
The Interior Department’s press secretary angrily lashed-out at the criticism.
Our tweets are approved by career ethics attorneys and thankfully no longer overseen by you.@Interior increased the number ethics staff by 250% to remove the rotten stench from the blatant failure of the prior administration to invest in the ethics program. https://t.co/v3aFjYobbS

‘Epic fail’: Ex-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell fumbles her way into another legal blunder
According to Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Greg Bluestein, former Donald Trump election lawyer Sidney Powell continued her streak of legal appeal errors with what appears to be a typo telling judges in Georgia that votes intended for former Vice President Joe Biden were " flipped" to Donald Trump.
Powell, who was dismissed from the president's legal team after making claims that were considered beyond the pale by both the president and his main legal adviser Rudy Giuliani, has continued to attempt to make the case for the president that the election was rife with fraud with what she called lawsuits of "biblical proportions."
‘Patriot’ gets humiliated by Georgia cops on his livestream after falsely accusing a county worker of stealing election data
An employee of the county of Gwinnett in Georgia was followed by a man who thought he was illegally moving computers. The man who followed him was broadcasting live on Twitter and another person watching called the police, but as 11Alive reports, the Lawrenceville Police Department says the employee was just moving desk phones.
The responding officer wrote in his report that the person watching the livestream, "was very upset that there was a vehicle... leaving the elections building filled with, what he believed to be, computers containing data for the 2020 General Election."
Republicans created a MAGA monster — and now they’re paying the price: report
President Donald Trump's post-election legal battle has devolved into a new form of political contention that has resulted it intraparty fighting. Due to the unfavorable outcome of the presidential election, many of Trump's allies are now encouraging his supporters to forego voting in the upcoming Georgia runoff.
An editorial published by the New York Times outlines the long-term impact the Make America Great Again (MAGA) Revolution could have on the Republican Party. With Trump and his allies now attacking members of their own political party and voters following suit, the MAGA movement appears to have another dark attribute: self-sabotaging and devouring their own.
