    The dueling scoops about Jared Kushner’s plan for secret communications with Russia, explained

    Actual policy is the elephant in the room On Friday night two versions of an incredible story emerged.

    Trump didn’t say the one thing about NATO he was supposed to say

    His silence on Article 5 is deafening to European leaders. European leaders had high hopes that President Donald Trump would finally endorse Article 5 of NATO — the keystone principle that an attack on one member is an attack against all — during a hotly anticipated speech at the alliance’s headquarters on Thursday.

    The hilarious Trump orb photo is a nearly perfect metaphor for his foreign policy

    Don’t worry, we explain what the orb literally is too. There is one picture from Donald Trump’s trip to the Middle East that has come to stand in for the entire thing. It is a photo of Trump, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz, and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi holding a creepy glowing orb in a darkened room in Saudi Arabia. oh...

    Hill Republicans aren’t racing to Trump’s side on classified intel scandal

    But most aren’t yet criticizing him either. President Donald Trump might have leaked classified information to the Russian government, the Washington Post reported Monday, and for perhaps the first time in his scandal-soaked presidency, Republicans on Capitol Hill did not immediately rise to his defense. On Tuesday morning, Senate Majority...

    Don’t miss Trump’s incredibly telling non-answer on financial ties to Russia

    A simple question that deserves a real answer. Donald Trump’s admission that he had the Russia investigation on his mind when he fired FBI Director James Comey has, naturally, attracted the lion’s share of attention out of Thursday night’s interview with NBC News’s Lester Holt. But he made another telling admission in...

    Trump’s decision to fire Comey is another win for Vladimir Putin

    It’s not just Comey: the scary past 24 hours in Trump-Russia, explained

    The Comey firing is rightly dominating the news. Amazingly, though, it wasn’t the only major development in the ongoing and intensifying Trump-Russia scandal. The official reason for FBI Director Jim Comey’s dismissal is that he mishandled the Hillary Clinton email investigation, something many Democrats surely agree with. But the...
