White House Counsel Reportedly Cooperating With Mueller Out of Fear Trump Will Use Him as Scapegoat

A new report indicates that one of the White House’s top lawyers has “cooperated extensively” with Robert Mueller‘s special counsel investigation into President Trump‘s possible obstruction of justice. New York Times spoke to multiple current and former White House officials who say that Don McGahn allowed himself to be interviewed by Mueller’s team at least three times over the last nine months. These interviews reached an estimated total of 30 hours altogether, during which, McGahn reportedly spoke about Trump’s anger with former FBI director James Comey, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and his general frustration with the ongoing Russia investigation. Sources said its possible McGahn told Mueller about details he might not have learned any other way, including an account of how Trump previously attempted to have Mueller fired. McGahn’s level of cooperation is somewhat abnormal for someone in his position, but interestingly enough, part of the Continue reading "White House Counsel Reportedly Cooperating With Mueller Out of Fear Trump Will Use Him as Scapegoat"

Jack Dorsey: ‘I Fully Admit’ Twitter Has to Be More Transparent With Policy Enforcement, ‘That’s On Me’

On Saturday, CNN previewed a portion of Brian Stelter‘s interview with Jack Dorsey, and the Twitter CEO admitted that his social media platform has to do more in terms of maintaining trust with users and avoiding bias. Much of the interview revolved around the allegations from conservatives that Twitter uses shadowbanning and other forms of censorship to suppress right-wingers. President Trump went on a tangent about this earlier in the day, so Dorsey defended himself while acknowledging the question of “are we doing something according to political ideology or viewpoints?” “We are not. Period,” Dorsey said. “We do not look at content with regards to political viewpoint or ideology. We look at behavior, and we use that behavior as a signal to add to relevance.” As the interview continued, Dorsey conceded that some people might not believe him because “I fully admit” to Twitter’s left-leaning bias. Continue reading "Jack Dorsey: ‘I Fully Admit’ Twitter Has to Be More Transparent With Policy Enforcement, ‘That’s On Me’"

Corey Stewart Boasts of Black Support, Hilariously Fails to Name a Single Black Leader Backing Him

Corey Stewart had an incredibly-tense chat with Al Sharpton last week about racial issues in America, but today, the GOP senate candidate for Virginia returned to MSNBC for Round 2. It didn’t go much better than it did the first time. Stewart, who has been in the news a lot lately for reports on his extensive ties to white supremacists, argued that America has completely moved beyond racial issues. This drew a lot of pushback from Sharpton and Toure, particularly when Stewart said multiple times that “you guys are so obsessed” with race. The three continued to spar about whether Stewart can effectively represent Virginia if he cannot acknowledge the sociopolitical issues minority groups have to contend with. Stewart stuck to his guns by saying “most Americans…don’t care that much about race,” which he characterized as a distraction from bigger matters. Since Stewart insisted that he had plenty of Continue reading "Corey Stewart Boasts of Black Support, Hilariously Fails to Name a Single Black Leader Backing Him"

Trump Rips ‘Loudmouth, Partisan, Political Hack’ John Brennan: Will Go Down as ‘Worst’ CIA Chief in History

Oh look, more of this. After going on a tangent lamenting the supposed censorship of conservatives across social media, President Trump took aim at John Brennan again. This time, he called Brennan a “loudmouth, partisan, political hack” who will surely be known as the “worst” CIA director in history. In case you missed it over the last few days, Trump reignited his war with the intelligence community by revoking Brennan’s security clearance and making threats to take it away from several of his other foes. Critics have interpreted this as a ploy Continue reading "Trump Rips ‘Loudmouth, Partisan, Political Hack’ John Brennan: Will Go Down as ‘Worst’ CIA Chief in History"

Sandy Hook Families Accuse Alex Jones of Destroying Evidence in Defamation Case

Attorneys representing two families of Sandy Hook victims have submitted a court filing accusing Alex Jones of destroying evidence pertaining to their defamation lawsuit against him. The Infowars conspiracy factory chief is still fighting multiple legal battles with the families accusing him of causing them emotional distress by fueling the lunatic idea that the Newtown massacre was a staged hoax. A motion filed in a Texas state court says that lawyers for the plaintiffs have accused Jones of ordering his staff to delete content from his website. The claim cites one of Jones’ most recent radio programs, during which he supposedly ordered the deletion in response to a CNN report on how many times InfoWars violated Twitter user guidelines with their online content. Indeed, several of Jones’ tweets were purged after the network’s report went out. “The loss of this evidence prejudices plaintiffs’ case because InfoWars deleted social media and Continue reading "Sandy Hook Families Accuse Alex Jones of Destroying Evidence in Defamation Case"
