“You’d better watch out You’d better not cry You’d better not lie to the FBI Robert Mueller’s comin’ to town!” Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon — who once ruffled whatever that is on top of Trump’s head — made a valiant bid last night to catch up politically with woke competitors like Kimmel and Colbert.

Why Trump Must Think Twice Before He Gives A Pardon To Mike Flynn

Ever since Michael Flynn departed the Trump White House under a cloud of disgrace last February, speculation has mounted that the president might pardon his former national security adviser. With Flynn’s guilty plea in federal court and disclosure of his cooperation agreement with special counsel Robert Mueller, conjecture about such a pardon is rampant. And […]

#EndorseThis: “From Russia With Love” To Trump’s Perp Walk

Some very naughty person posted this mean, unfair, over-the-top video — featuring a cast of familiar faces, from Michael Flynn to Ivanka Trump — in celebration of the Halloween indictments by special counsel Robert Mueller. In its gloating excess, the “From Russia With Love” fantasy is extremely nasty to the Trump gang and asks viewers […]

Are Special Counsel And NY Attorney General Turning Up Heat On Trump?

Reprinted with permission from Alternet. Special prosecutor Robert Mueller has the image of a stodgy bureaucrat—and for good reason. He is one. A career civil servant with a couple of stints in private practice, his hang-dog face rarely cracks a smile, only an occasional wry grin. A registered Republican, he came to prominence when President […]

Why Trump Could Never Be A Putinesque Strongman

What did Vladimir Putin think he was getting? Is it possible that he mistook an egotistical buffoon like Donald J. Trump for an apprentice strongman? If so, he badly misunderstands America. It’s not simply Russia with better plumbing. Granted, Trump himself lacks the self-discipline for autocracy. But he also lacks the servile population.

Why Kenneth Starr Deserved Censure — And Robert Mueller Deserves Respect

As Robert Mueller pursues a wide-ranging investigation aimed at Donald Trump, members of Trump’s family, his appointees, and his political associates, the president’s legal advisers have answered by attacking the legitimacy and fairness of the special counsel — which may be the prelude to executive action. Surely, a fearful Trump is contemplating how to rid […]

Why Trump (And Gingrich) Should Stop Whining About Robert Mueller

When Newt Gingrich humiliates himself by smearing Special Counsel Robert Mueller, it is all too easy to dismiss the former speaker. As a disgraced politician who left office under an ethical cloud, following a decade spent debasing American discourse, Gingrich has no standing to criticize Mueller, a decorated Vietnam veteran who enjoys broad bipartisan esteem […]
