Nixon Redux? 'Tuesday Afternoon Massacre' Firing Of Comey Reveals Another Big Lie
Huffington Post - 10 months
As Mr. Rogers might have asked, “Can you spell ‘cover up’?” FBI Director James Comey was leading the most important investigation into the Trump administration’s Russian connections. Now he’s been fired. Historians may come to call Trump’s move the “Tuesday afternoon massacre,” similar in many ways to Nixon’s “Saturday night massacre” that eventually led to his resignation. Trump will get to handpick Comey’s replacement, who will surely ignore the Trump administration’s corruption, conflicts-of-interest, and misuse of the White House to enrich the president and his family. We now face a constitutional crisis. Will Trump get away with it? The growing demand for Congress to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Trump’s Russian ties, independent of his own Department of Justice and his next FBI director, suggests that the American people aren’t as stupid or gullible as he thinks. It may have to wait until after November 2018. But if the Democrats take back the Hou...

Can We Finally Admit It Was Always About Sexism, Never Emails?
Huffington Post - 12 months
It was never really about the emails. Remember the private email server and account that Hillary Clinton used to conduct official State Department business during her tenure as Secretary of State? Of course you do! It was the subject of months of Congressional investigations, numerous tweets from Donald Trump, front page headlines, and calls to “lock her up!” “But her emails” became a widely-circulated meme. So, what happened when it came out that Vice President Mike Pence used a private email account to conduct government business ― and was hacked ― during his time as governor of Indiana? Predictably, a whole lot of nothing. “There’s no comparison whatsoever,” Pence told CNN last Friday, when questioned about the parallels between his personal email account and Clinton’s. (Pence had previously praised the FBI on more than one occasion for investigating Clinton.) .@realDonaldTrump and I commend the FBI for reopening an investigation into Clinton's personal email ...

Clinton, Trump and the downside of loyalty
Yahoo News - about 1 year
As Hillary Clinton left the Capitol after Friday’s inauguration, she was accompanied by a familiar figure, her longtime aide and confidante and the vice-chair of her presidential campaign, Huma Abedin. The campaign, and almost certainly Clinton’s political career, had ended months earlier, but it was not surprising to see Abedin, who has worked for the former first lady since joining her White House staff as a 19-year-old college intern, still at her side. Whatever you think of the competence of Clinton’s staff, there is no questioning the loyalty of the men and (mostly) women in her inner circle.
