GOP Senator Calls for Investigating What FBI Did About Russia-Trump Intelligence The night before Donald Trump was sworn in as president, the New York Times dropped a bombshell: intelligence and law enforcement agencies have been examining intercepted communications and financial transactions in an investigation of possible contacts between Trump associates and Russian officials.

Investigators on the Trump-Russia Beat Should Talk to This Man With subpoena-wielding investigators on this beat, here's a suggestion: The gumshoes ought to talk to an American from Belarus named Sergei Millian, who has boasted of close ties to Trump and who has worked with an outfit the FBI suspected of being a Russian intelligence front.

The Spy Who Wrote the Trump-Russia Memos: It Was "Hair-Raising" Stuff The memos noted that this spy's sources had provided him with information indicating that Russian intelligence had mounted a years-long operation to co-opt or cultivate Trump and had gathered secret compromising material on Trump. They also alleged that Trump and his inner circle had accepted a regular flow of intelligence from the Kremlin.

Obama Orders a Review of Russian Meddling in the US Election -- But How Much of It Will Be Public? President Barack Obama has added momentum to the call for an investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Obama's decision comes as members of Congress have upped the volume on demands that the Russian hacking of Democratic targets be probed.

Hate Trumps History: A Reality TV Star Wins the White House in a Broken America Pocketing a huge majority of non-college-educated white voters, Trump prevented Hillary Clinton from becoming the country's first woman president. Hate did trump. The Republicans' animus-driven effort yielded a decisive victory for the reality television celebrity and left the nation bitterly and fundamentally divided.

Trump Once Called for Sending US Ground Troops to Fight ISIS and "Take That Oil" Throughout the campaign, Trump has insisted that the United States should "take the oil" from Iraq and areas controlled by ISIS--an idea widely derided by military, international law, and energy experts--without ever explaining how this could happen.

Donald Trump's Anti-ISIS Plan Is the Same as...Obama's and Clinton's The bottom line is that there's not much disagreement about the basics of a counter-ISIS strategy. Trump harshly criticizes Obama and Clinton--absurdly claiming they were the "founders" of ISIS--but offers nothing new in terms of policy. Defeating ISIS is a complex challenge with no easy answers or quick fixes.

The Time Donald Trump Dismissed Half of America as Losers Despite Trump's purported outrage over the Clinton remark, the mogul has engaged in his own demonization of Americans that has echoed the "47 percent" comment that landed Mitt Romney in trouble during the 2012 campaign.

The Question No One's Asking About the Clinton Foundation The AP article focused on a small issue and skipped a bigger subject: assessing what the Clinton Foundation has accomplished. And there may be a good reason why much of the coverage of the foundation has zeroed in on side matters, because it's darn hard to evaluate what the mega-nonprofit has done.

You Go to War With the Hillary Clinton You Have There won't be a new Hillary in the weeks ahead. She is unlikely to become an inspirational candidate. She won't become a progressive hero. She won't become trusted by Republicans who have long eyed the Clintons with suspicion. She is, though, the only chance to stop Trump's takeover of America--and her job is to persuade voters that for now she is indeed the last best hope.

Donald Trump and the Dark Soul of the GOP The Robger Stone-Alex Jones vision is a dark one: Corrupt and tyrannical evildoers are in charge, and they must be removed -- by death, if necessary. The existence of the United States is threatened by enemies at home, and extreme measures are called for. And Trump has encouraged and exploited this fear and hatred.

The Hillary Clinton Email Case Will Never Be Over Unless the DOJ prosecutors disregard the FBI recommendation, Clinton is in the clear, legally speaking.

Can Bernie Sanders Take Yes for an Answer? Sanders, the independent socialist senator from Vermont who has spent most of his political career running against Democrats, has achieved a tremendous ideological triumph. He has pushed -- or pulled -- Hillary Clinton, that other candidate, and the entire Democratic Party in a progressive direction, while proving that his anti-corporate, big-money-bashing populism of the left can inspire millions.

Donald Trump's Really Big Brexit Flip-Flop in a Facebook post, Trump praised the UK voters for having "declared their independence from the European Union" and for voting "to reassert control over their own politics, borders and economy." He compared a vote for Brexit to a vote for Trump, asserting that American voters "will have the chance to reject today's rule by the global elite, and to embrace real change that delivers a government of, by and for the people."

Bernie Sanders' Choice: What to Do When Winter Is Coming? Donald Trump. He's a narcissistic bigot who in power could be a profound danger. He seems to lack a basic understanding of the nuclear arsenal of which he would be in charge. He claims climate change is a hoax. He has vowed to play chicken with the debt ceiling. It is not hard to envision him triggering (or ignoring) crises that would threaten the survival of the United States or other parts of the globe.

GOP Insider Trent Lott Tried to Broker a Kasich-Rubio Ticket to Thwart Donald Trump This was Lott's plan: Kasich and Rubio would agree to run as a ticket, with Rubio in the veep slot, and the pair would keep this quiet and not announce the deal until days before the Republican convention. This dramatic, headline-grabbing move, in Lott's thinking, would dominate the news, as GOPers gathered in Cleveland, and potentially rewrite the narrative of the Republican race.

The Myth of Sanders' November Advantage Sanders has yet to face a true negative ad campaign aimed at destroying his public image.

And everyone knows what that pummeling would focus on: He's a self-proclaimed socialist.

The Time Ted Cruz Defended a Ban on Dildos In one chapter of his campaign book, A Time for Truth, Ted Cruz proudly chronicles his days as a Texas solicitor general, a post he held from 2003 to 2008. He notes cases he defended during his stint as the state's chief lawyer, in front of the Supreme Court and federal and state appellate courts. Yet one case he does not mention is the time he helped defend a law criminalizing the sale of dildos.

What Donald Trump and Ted Cruz Have in Common As Trump and Cruz slug it out for the Republican prize, each aims to distinguish himself from the other.

Hillary Clinton and Henry Kissinger: It's Personal. Very Personal. At Thursday night's Democratic presidential debate, one of the most heated exchanges concerned an unlikely topic: Henry Kissinger. During a stretch focused on foreign policy, Bernie Sanders, the senator from Vermont, jabbed at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for having cited Kissinger, who was Richard Nixon's secretary of state, as a fan of her stint at Foggy Bottom.

Rubio's message seems to be that a strong and effective US leader would not spy on Israel, and that Rubio would not green-light espionage operations that keep an eye on that nation. No doubt, that would delight Israel and its spies, who have long targeted Washington with aggressive espionage operations.

Why This Is the Most Unpredictable GOP Race in 50 Years For decades -- that is, for the entire modern political era -- anyone with a dash or two of sense could usually make a reasonable guess about who would win the Republican presidential nomination.

Yet it is odd that Carson has done so well with evangelicals when he is a high-profile and devoted member of a church that teaches that almost all evangelical Christians will soon join with Satan to oppose Jesus Christ.

How Cat Stevens Made Bill Murray's New Film Happen Competing with big-budget films, Rock the Kasbah may have a tough time finding its audience. But the Cat Stevens-imbued film is an unconventional attempt to depict this Muslim society in non-Hollywood fashion--while prompting plenty of laughs. (Murray nails the part of the dodgy former LA player who's living in a derelict motel and incessantly dropping the names of the big-time rockers he supposedly used to run with.)

Trump's No. 1 Booster Goes Real Dirty to Attack the Clintons The book is something of a throwback to the 1990s' "vast right-wing conspiracy"--a term Hillary Clinton used during the Clinton impeachment scandal to dismiss her husband's foes and the assorted allegations hurled at the couple. Its cover features a blurb from conservative provocateur Ann Coulter, who in the Clinton years was part of a team of right-wing attorneys who privately schemed to destroy the Clinton administration.
