Donald Trump’s Treason


(Guardian US) – Lauren Gambino:

Donald Trump drew mostly bipartisan condemnation after failing to denounce Russian meddling in the US presidential election at a joint press conference with Vladimir Putin.

Former CIA Director John O. Brennan on Twitter:

Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???

Donald Trump is #winning. On the back of an already excellent week where he was gifted a football and impeded a monarch, right now the president is also leaping up Google’s image search rankings, to poll position. …

The End Stage of the Trump Presidency


(New Yorker) – Adam Davidson:

The raid on the offices of President Trump’s personal lawyer makes clear that Trump’s battle with the special counsel, Robert Mueller, is entering its final chapter.

We don’t know the precise path the next few months will take. There will be resistance and denial and counterattacks. But it seems likely that, when we look back on this week, we will see it as a turning point. We are now in the end stages of the Trump Presidency. …

(Atlantic Politics) – Conor Friedersdorf:

Michael Cohen, A Dealmaker And Fixer


(WP) – Paul Waldman:

Trump isn’t someone who played close to the line a time or two, or once did a shady deal. He may well be the single most corrupt major business figure in the United States of America.

So it was no accident that when he ran for president, the people who joined him in his quest were also a collection of grifters, liars, and crooks …

Mexico Agrees to Pay for Trump’s Psychiatric Care


(New Yorker::The Borowitz Report) – Andy Borowitz:

While some Mexican taxpayers argued that a full course of psychiatric treatment could prove more costly than a border wall, the Mexican President, Enrique Peña Nieto warned against skimping on such a necessary expense.

“When the safety and security of the world is at stake, eight hundred dollars an hour is a bargain,” he said, but added that Mexico would try to find a therapist who takes insurance. …

Amazon, Taxes and the Postal Service


(Patheos::Dispatches) – Ed Brayton:

It’s a day that ends in Y and that means Trump is lying about something. This time it’s a repeat of two different lies that have already been debunked time and time again, that Amazon doesn’t pay taxes and that the U.S. Postal Service loses money delivering packages for them.

As usual, he is dead wrong about nearly all of this. The New York Times does the fact-checking. …
