As Republicans unveiled their tax reform plan Thursday, Newsweek learned that months after Ivanka Trump took an official White House position, she was still using a private email account to communicate with the U.S. Treasury Department, discussing national economic programs, her meetings with global leaders and the child care tax credit, one of her signature projects.
Donald Trump thinks Ivanka “looks down on me,” concedes he groped Melania in public and knows his compulsive hand-washing “could be a psychological problem,” according to a new archive of all the conversations he had on air with the Howard Stern Show.
A U.S. Air Force chaplain who ministers to thousands of men and women at an Ohio base is asserting that Christians in the U.S. Armed Forces “serve Satan” and are “grossly in error” if they support service members’ right to practice other faiths.
Hillary Clinton finally revealed what was on her mind during her second, pivotal debate with Donald Trump last year, when the Republican candidate appeared to be stalking her around the stage. In a feisty, relaxed pre -recorded interview with Jane Pauley this morning, she also promised that she won’t run for office again, but that she would remain “in politics.”

Michael Treiman, a manager at a solar company, announced in April that he was running against Binghamton, New York, Mayor Richard David, a Republican. Treiman dropped out a week later after being threatened both online and on his property. Four hours after Treiman went on local radio to discuss his challenge, he received emails, directed at his wife and three children, expressing “heinous attempts to scare me off,” he later said.
As an avalanche of security issues distracts the Trump administration in its third week, two ranking Democratic senators have sent letters of inquiry to the White House regarding the staff’s possession of private Republican National Committee email accounts; the president’s use of a personal, unsecured smartphone; and reports of mishandling sensitive documents during a dinner at Mar-a-Lago in Florida over the weekend.
When Vice President Mike Pence cast the deciding vote that put the billionaire Betsy DeVos in charge of the Department of Education, his action highlighted once again the curious alliance between the most libertine president in American history and the most politically powerful flock of evangelical Christians Washington has ever seen.
According to Newsweek, senior Trump administration staffers including Kellyanne Conway, Jared Kushner, Sean Spicer, and Steve Bannon have active accounts on a Republican National Committee email system. The system (rnchq.org) is the same one the Bush administration was accused of using to evade transparency rules after claiming to have “lost” 22 million emails.
Since Election Day, millions of Americans have been talking seriously about gulags, fascism, 1930s Germany and moving to Canada. Trump’s genuine—not fake-news—authoritarian tendencies rightly terrify progressives.

Women voted against Donald Trump by one of the most significant gender gap margins in history, but their support for Hillary Clinton was tinged with ambivalence.
Among his greatest hits: Stone takes credit for bringing down Client 9—otherwise known as former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer—by parlaying intel he got from an off-duty prostitute he met in a sex club into an FBI tip about a Democrat who hired hookers and never removed his socks. Before that, he organized the so-called Brooks Brothers riot in the Miami-Dade County clerk’s office that stopped the 2000 election recount and arguably gave America the presidency of George W. Bush
It might well turn out to be the case that Donald Trump will become the foundation for a Broad Coalition of women who will elect a first woman president.
Clinton’s email habits look positively transparent when compared with the subpoena-dodging, email-hiding, private-server-using George W. Bush administration. Between 2003 and 2009, the Bush White House “lost” 22 million emails.
But take a moment away from pawing through the tens of thousands of her personal and professional emails now on public view and consider the long list of elected and appointed Republicans who have done exactly the same thing as Clinton—and worse.
