| Aug. 25, 2017

Why Trump Should Resist Temptation to Pardon His Team

| July 18, 2017

"Donald Trump is already enabling Russia with his lack of action. He doesn't even affirm the assessment by our intelligence agencies that Russia disrupted our elections; in statements, he still caveats the possibility that Russia did it with asides that it could have been others.

Clapper: Putin Did it to Demean Clinton and Help Elect Trump

| May 08, 2017

"Clapper ended his statement with a reminder to the American public and the Senators of what this investigation is really about: Russia did, without doubt and with little consequence, deploy resources and tactics to disrupt America's presidential election — to undermine Hillary Clinton, and to help Trump's campaign. Stated without drama or emotion, it was nonetheless sobering."
