    Trump loses his pick to oversee assault on federal workforce

    Donald Trump—like so many other Republican politicians—loves to attack the workers who keep our government running. It’s a win-win-win for Republicans: a way to attack good wages, go after unions, and break the government so they can say “see, government doesn’t work.” But to be really effective at hurting federal workers from the...

    Manafort owed $17 million to ‘pro-Russia interests’ before joining Trump campaign for free

    Earlier, the Wall Street Journal discovered that a small Chicago bank had loaned former campaign manager Paul Manafort and his companies about $16 million soon after Donald Trump had won the presidency—a number that aroused prosecutor suspicion because it represented about a quarter of the bank’s available capital, seemingly a high-risk...

    He didn’t read the email. Seriously. That’s his excuse. A source close to Manafort told POLITICO on Tuesday that the campaign manager hadn’t read all the way to the bottom of the email exchanges on his phone and that he didn’t even know who he was meeting with when he attended the 20 to 30-minute session. Kushner’s...
