Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has a side grift going: raising money for ‘scam PACs’

The Trump administration isn't even a year old yet and the betting is furious: Which one of his appointed crooks and hoodlums will be the first to end up in the slammer? It may yet be former national security adviser Michael Flynn, but don't...

More Trump Double Speak, He Denies Knowing Matt Whitaker, Forget He Told Fox He...

Abraham Lincoln said, “No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar.” And Lincoln didn’t even bank on the fact that there would be video tape taking down the lies of Donald Trump, Father of All Lies, and doing the remembering for him. Trump said Friday on the White House lawn, “I don’t know Matt Whitaker. Matt Whitaker worked for Jeff Sessions. And he was always extremely highly thought of, and he still is. But I didn’t know Matt Whitaker.” Contrast that with what he told Fox News on October 11, in a call in to Fox & Friends. “I can tell you Matt Whitaker’s a great guy. I mean I know Matt Whitaker.” Just FYI, Trump heard Whitaker talking on CNN about how Mueller’s investigation was over the line and he decided to have Sessions hire him based on that. Professional vetting via television spot.  That’s how things are done in this Gong Show of an administration. Go to 34:47.

Why The Hell is Don Jr. Getting NSC Memos?
