Trump tariffs blamed for slowdown, less hiring at new Volvo plant in South Carolina

"If Mueller is proceeding without being throttled, without being stymied and he’s proceeding at this kind of a pace... everything is aiming right at the President personally and that's got to be very unsettling for them"

Last year, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov claimed Cohen’s outreach on the Trump Tower Moscow deal received no response. As Cohen’s plea demonstrates, they lied. They helped Trump by providing false corroboration. This is a counterintelligence nightmare.

"Trump, a princeling who was raised in luxury [and] never held accountable for any of his countless personal and business betrayals and failures... is not good with stress," writes @TheRickWilson: "Playtime is over, and Donald doesn't like it."

The details of Katie Johnson’s allegations are deeply disturbing & graphic. She describes Epstein violently raping her AFTER Trump did, furious that Trump stole the girls virginity not him. Knowing Trump, is it hard to believe him capable of forcibly raping a 13 year old Virgin?

Why President Donald Trump is talking about a "chicken tax"

Merkel: We sanction Russia for the sake of international law

“Espionage” may soon become a highly relevant part of the national vocabulary for the first time in decades. Note, I’m not tossing the “T” word (“treason”) around. Its narrowness under Art. III would make that a mistake. Espionage isn’t treason. But it’s a very big deal.

Trump’s labor secretary, Alexander Acosta, cut a secret deal with a billionaire pedophile

"I personally witnessed Mr. Trump physically threaten the life and well-being of the Plaintiff if she ever revealed any details of the physical and sexual abuse suffered by her at the hands of Mr. Trump."

There are so many heinous facts shared in this deeply and expertly reported story but the one I keep coming back to is the utter indifference of so many people in the justice system to young girls who were sexually assaulted and raped. Epstein is scum but so are his enablers.

Latest: Rog Ratfucker and Fatboy Jerry KNOWINGLY pushed lies about poor Seth Rich when they knew the Russians hacked Hillary's emails. These people are beneath contempt. PS it was a KREMLIN lie about Seth they pushed, btw. Another coincidence, surely.

Epstein was accused of FORCING 50 MINORS to have sex w/ him 3x a day. Accosta (prosecutor) approved a deal shutting down probe into whether there were OTHER PEOPLE who took part in the crimes. ACCOSTA IS NOW TRUMP’S Secretary of Labor, providing oversight of human

"I don't think anyone has been told the truth about what Jeffrey Epstein did," said Michelle Licata, now 30. "He ruined my life and a lot of girls' lives. People need to know what he did and why he wasn't prosecuted so it never happens again."

Epstein could have spent life in prison, but he only served a little more than a year in jail. Why? A secret deal was struck — an extraordinary plea arrangement — with help from future Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta.

More than 2,300 migrant teens are sleeping in a huge tent city in the Texas desert where the federal government waived FBI background checks on staff meant to care for them. And it's still growing.

Papadopoulos’s Russia Ties Continue to Intrigue the FBI

Trump enacted a new law. Computer systems weren’t ready for it, and screwed a bunch of vets out of money. Now the VA says it won’t pay them because it would be too hard to figure out what they’re owed. Really?
