  • Hating The President Is Not a Strategy, As Bill Kristol Just Learned*

    Going all in on attacking President Trump isn’t proving to be a particularly effective business strategy for media outlets.The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters.It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base.The same week that The Weekly Standard’s troubles broke, Vanity Fair dropped a bombshell report about the struggles faced by those hip, millennial-targeted left-wing rags with the cool names...

    Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch is backtracking after saying that he wasnt concerned that prosecutors implicated President Donald Trump in a crime. The Republican in a statement said he spoke imprudently in a CNN interview Tuesday. During the interview, he dismissed federal prosecutors who said Trump directed his personal lawyer Michael Cohen to make hush money payments. Hatch said Democrats will do anything to hurt Trump.

    Appearing with Shepard Smith on Wednesday, Fox Newss Judge Andrew Napolitano continued his winning streak of being the worst and most dishonest legal analyst on television not named Jeffrey Toobin. Spewing all kinds of mindless gloom and doom (you can watch the full segment here), while ignoring the all-important mitigating context that proves just how stupid his gloom and doom is, Napolitano painted a dire picture of President Trump as a felon. After Trumps former attorney Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison, Smith teed up Napolitano with this: Prosecutors have told us through these filings that they...

    Donald Trump continues to suffer from upside-down job ratings as his second year as president winds down. In addition, views of the economy remain divided, voters feel the administrations economic policies have not helped them -- and fewer are optimistic about future economic conditions than two years ago, according to the latest Fox News poll. Forty-five percent of voters think the economy will be in better shape a year from now, down from 56 percent who felt that way in December 2016. Although the question has been asked at irregular intervals on the Fox News poll over the past 20...

Andrew Cuomo.

    Former FBI Director James Comey offered a stark assessment of President Donald Trump's potential legal jeopardy Sunday, saying new filings from federal prosecutors point to heightened scrutiny of the president's own conduct. If Trump is not yet an unindicted co-conspirator to charges already filed by the special counsel and federal prosecutors against former Trump associates, "he's certainly close," Comey told Nicolle Wallace, host of MSNBC's "Deadline White House" and an NBC News political analyst, during a discussion at the 92nd Street Y in New York Sunday night. It was Comey's first public appearance since prosecutors in New York and on...

    What they call "cable news" these days often is a repetitive exercise in speculating that the worst for Donald Trump is always right around the corner. On Monday, the doomsaying ghouls of Morning Joe reveled in Trump's troubles, prematurely dancing on the President's political grave. But not even the prospect of Trump being hounded from office satisfied them. No, they gleefully predicted that even as an ex-President, Donald Trump would be beset with problems "for the rest of his life." [snip] Donny Deutsch then delivered the coup de un-grace, proclaiming that the President's current predicament is: "Just the beginning. This...

    Top House Democrats on Sunday raised the prospect of impeachment or almost-certain prison time for President Donald Trump if its proved that he directed illegal hush-money payments to women, adding to the legal pressure on the president over the Russia investigation and other scandals. Theres a very real prospect that on the day Donald Trump leaves office, the Justice Department may indict him, that he may be the first president in quite some time to face the real prospect of jail time, said Rep. Adam Schiff, the incoming chairman of the House intelligence committee. The bigger pardon question may come...

    The Justice Department says that President Donald Trump directed illegal payments to buy the silence of two women whose claims of extramarital affairs threatened his presidential campaign, the first time prosecutors have connected Trump to a federal crime. In a court filing, prosecutors said former Trump lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen arranged the secret payments at the height of the 2016 campaign in coordination with and at the direction of Trump. Cohen has previously said Trump was involved in the hush-money scheme, but court documents filed ahead of Cohens sentencing made clear prosecutors believe Cohens claim. The filing stopped short...

    Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson set straight any misinformation concerning his views on President Trump: I dont think hes capable, he said during an interview on Tuesday. Urs Gehriger, an editor at Die Weltwoche, the countrys leading German-language opinion weekly, noted that Carlsons new book, Ship of Fools, is silent on Trump but comments on his critics. And so, Gehriger jump-started the conversation by asking what Carlson thought of Trumps first two years in office. Carlson said he cannot stand Trumps self-aggrandizement and boasting. Then, when asked whether Trump has kept his promises, the usually quick-witted and long-winded Carlson...

    The Post reports: Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III on Tuesday recommended that former national security adviser Michael Flynn serve no prison time, citing his substantial assistance with several ongoing investigations, according to a new court filing. Tuesdays filing is heavily redacted, continuing to shroud in secrecy the details of what Flynn told Muellers team about his interactions with [President] Trump and other top officials. But the document noted that Flynn has assisted the special counsel with its investigation concerning links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump campaign.

    The Bush family has taken great care to assure that services being held to honor the life and legacy of former President George H.W. Bush do not become a political platform for anti-Trump swipes. Such rhetoric was prominent in services for the late Sen. John McCain three months ago. But with the Bush family patriarch's casket lying in State at the U.S. Capitol this week ahead of Wednesday services in Washington, efforts have been made to avoid a politicized funeral. The family already contacted the White House this past summer saying that President Trump would be welcome at H.W. Bushs...

    President Trump took to Twitter Monday morning, haranguing special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and witnesses to his ongoing Russia investigation. His tweets have become a common morning occurrence, particularly in recent weeks. But legal experts are calling Mondays missives a newsworthy development that amounts to evidence of obstructing justice. Trumps first statement went out after Michael Cohen, his former personal attorney who pleaded guilty last week for lying to Congress about the presidents real estate project in Russia. In his tweet, Trump alleged that Cohen lied to Mueller and called for a severe penalty, demanding that his former fixer...
