Trump Is Making a Dangerous Profession Even Deadlier

Trump Is Making a Dangerous Profession Even DeadlierPresident Donald Trump’s daily fusillades against journalists and the news media are vile and reprehensible. Trump never misses a chance to assail the press at news conferences, White House “press sprays” under the roar of the presidential helicopter, and especially at his campaign rallies. Last week, at a three-day conference of Trump supporters held at his National Doral golf resort in Miami (where, incidentally, Trump is angling to host, and thus personally profit from, next year’s G-7 meeting), a video was shown depicting Trump storming through a “Church of Fake News,” slaughtering parishioners whose heads were replaced with news organization logos or the faces of political opponents. Reports of the violent video sparked outrage. But the time for surprise over Trump’s demonization of the press is long past. He is fueling hatred and encouraging violence, and needs to be held accountable. According to…

The Justice Department Hired the Son of a Vocal Trump Defender

The Justice Department Hired the Son of a Vocal Trump DefenderThe son of one of President Donald Trump’s most vocal defenders has a new gig in Trump’s Justice Department. Brady Toensing—whose mother Victoria Toensing and and step-father Joe diGenova are key players in the rapidly growing Ukraine scandal—joined the DOJ in June as a senior counsel in its Office of Legal Policy. The DOJ won’t say how Brady Toensing got the job, but the entire family has close ties to Trump. In 2016, Brady Toensing served as Trump’s Vermont campaign chair. Last year, Victoria Toensing and diGenova—a husband-and-wife legal team who frequently appear on Fox News—agreed to represent Trump in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. That arrangement quickly fell through, but the couple has since worked with Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani to dig up damaging information on Joe Biden in Ukraine and advance bogus theories about the origin of the…

Mick Mulvaney Confirms, Then Denies That Trump Withheld Military Aid to Ukraine To Compel …On again, off again. Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney confirmed and then denied that President Donald Trump withheld military aid to Ukraine until that country agreed to investigate the possibility that Democrats colluded with Ukraine to interfere in the 2016 election. “Did he also mention to me in [the] past the corruption related to the DNC server? Absolutely,” said Mulvaney during a White House press briefing yesterday, referencing an unproven theory that the American cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike spirited a server belonging to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to Ukraine to hide Ukrainian involvement in the 2016 presidential election. “No question about that. But that’s it, and that’s why we held up the money,” added Mulvaney. The temporary suspension of nearly $400 million in military aid to Ukraine, he said, was meant to compel the country…
