The Courts

The Looming Constitutional Crisis

It is now all but certain that Donald Trump will attempt to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The only questions that remain are how and when. Six months into this travesty of an administration and what we have is a West Wing in disarray, cabinet members who are in over their heads and a chief

Did Trump Inadvertently Admit To Money Laundering?

In one of the most bizarre and chilling interviews he’s ever given, Donald Trump threw Attorney General Jeff Sessions under the bus and threatened to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Okay, nothing new here. Trump has been pissed at Sessions ever since he recused himself from the Russia investigation, and everyone who hasn’t been living

It’s Time for Bob Mueller To Subpoena Trump’s Tax Returns

Thanks to the revelation that Mini Me – AKA Donald Trump Jr. – met with a Russian official for the expressed purpose of collecting damaging information on Hillary Clinton in order to help his father win the 2016 election, we now have clear evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. This isn’t a

Semantics

Let’s assume your boss calls you into their office, tells you to close the door and sit down. If you’re like me, you’re probably thinking, “Oh, shit, what’d I do now?” But let’s leave my insecurity out of it for now, shall we? Your boss hands you a piece a paper with a name and

The Coup Begins

Let me state this as bluntly as I can. If you think for a moment that Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey because of the way he handled the Clinton email server investigation last year, I would strongly advise you to stay out of Vegas for the foreseeable future; you’ll lose your shirt and

Dems Should Tell Mike Flynn To Take A Hike

So the man who said that anybody seeking immunity has probably committed a crime is now asking for immunity to testify before Congress. Now that’s what I call irony. Kudos to the Senate Intelligence Committee for rejecting the offer. It’s obvious that Mike Flynn knows his goose is cooked. Why on Earth would he be

Democrats Shouldn’t Waste Their Mulligan on Gorsuch

Golfers call it a Mulligan, named after the golfer David Mulligan who, after slicing a shot on his first tee, replaced his ball with another. He originally referred to it as a “correction” shot, but later amended it to say it was a Mulligan. The term stuck and today it is widely understood by most

Comey Finally Grows A Pair

No doubt it may seem like too little too late up in Chappaqua, but FBI Director James Comey finally put Donald Trump in his place. Responding to Trump’s ridiculous claim that Barack Obama wiretapped his penthouse suite at Trump Tower, Comey asked the Department of Justice to “publicly refute” the claim saying it is “false

Guest Contribution: The Injustice System

  The following guest contribution focusing on the American “war on drugs” was written by Jamal Mtshali, and is an excerpt from his book Last in Line: An American Destiny Deferred. More information about the author and his book can be found at the end of this piece. The War on Justice In America’s War on

What To Make of the 9th Circuit Court Decision

  Let’s start with the good news: First, the decision of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals was unanimous. All three judges – one of whom was appointed by a Republican president – rejected the Trump Administration’s request to stay the Temporary Restraining Order of the District Court. So much for this being a political
