Senate Republicans creating Biden-Burisma conspiracy theories into 2020’s Benghazi

Between the White House’s and the Justice Department’s attempts to undermine the Mueller report and the president’s response to the coronavirus, a committee tasked with ensuring the efficacy of the federal government should be working nonstop. And yet, to date, Johnson hasn’t issued a single subpoena on any matter that has unfolded during Donald Trump’s presidency.

The Wisconsin election postmortems suggest Republican efforts to suppress voters may have backfired

Both The Washington Post and The New York Times have postmortem pieces. (In this case, the Times version is a bit more substantive than the Post‘s, which dwells too long on partisan bluster.) Both suggest Democratic get-out-the-vote-by-mail efforts were more substantive and effective than the Republican counterparts.

No, Trump Cannot Move the General Election

We are three months into a major presidential election year and in the middle of a global pandemic. Not surprisingly, I am getting a lot of questions — from family, friends, reporters, political consultants, even from Members of Congress — about the impact that all of this may have on our elections. But there is one question that I get asked more than any other: is there any way—at all—that Trump can legally cancel or postpone the November General Election?

The answer is clearly no.

Who Has Emergency Authority Over Elections? Nobody’s Quite Sure.

The tug of war over whether and how to hold Tuesday’s Wisconsin primary exposes a national problem: State and local officials with the most experience running elections lack the power to revamp or postpone voting during a crisis.

Biden and Sanders must promise to save Warren’s CFPB and join her fight for consumers

Elizabeth Warren would have made a great president. Who knows, she still might get the chance, given her relative youth in what appears to be a golden age for presidents in their golden years. We can dream. 

When she suspended her campaign on Thursday, it ended the possibility that the Democratic Party would nominate, for the second time, a woman for president.

ABC News moderators blasted for hosting the ‘erase Warren debate’ as the men shout at each other

The moderators of Friday night’s Democratic Party debate in New Hampshire were slammed for ignoring Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

The debate was moderated by George Stephanopoulos, David Muir and Linsey Davis of ABC News. Additional questions were asked by Adam Sexton and Monica Hernandez of WMUR-TV.

Andrew Yang and the New American Tories

What links celebrity Yang supporters like Dave Chappelle, Rivers Cuomo, and Norm MacDonald?

A great groaning and rolling-of-eyes seized the internet last week as Dave Chapelle announced he was supporting Democratic candidate Andrew Yang in the primaries. I can’t say that I was surprised. Many have heard of the Yang Gang, that motley group of Redditors and Channers, gamers, memers, vapers, Bitcoin enthusiasts, and compulsive masturbators that have formed the basis of Yang’s campaign online. But in addition to these unwashed masses, Yang has also steadily been attracting an elite, mostly male constituency I like to call “eccentric Tories,” or to coin a term, “New American Tories.”
