Former Attorney General Eric Holder Says There is ‘Sufficient Factual Information’ to Indict Trump

Sixteen months ago Donald Trump incited his cult followers to storm the Capitol in an effort to prevent Congress from certifying the 2020 presidential election results. And for sixteen months the nation has been holding its collective breath while waiting for the Justice Department to hold Trump accountable for his brazen attempts to undermine democracy.

Donald Trump, Prison

While there have been numerous indictments of individual StormTrumpers for crimes ranging from trespassing to sedition, Trump himself has still not faced the legal consequences of his treasonous acts. A recent poll shows that, nearly a year and a half after the acts of domestic terrorism in Washington, D.C., 67% of the American people – including 41% of Republicans – say that he bears some or a lot of responsibility for the violence and destruction committed by some of his supporters when they broke into the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.”

On Sunday’s episode of Face the Nation on CBS, host Margaret Brennan interviewed former Attorney General Eric Holder, who served in the Obama administration. When asked about the prospect of a Trump indictment, Holder replied that he thinks that, based on the evidence, it would be warranted:

Brennan: Merrick Garland, you mentioned, he’s now in your old job as Attorney General. There have been critics of him who say that he isn’t being aggressive enough around the prosecutions of January 6th. Do you think that’s right?
Holder: No one knows. I mean, I have great faith in Merrick and the people at the Justice Department. We won’t really know how aggressive they’ve been until they are before a camera and announcing a decision, either to indict certain people or not indict certain people. Here’s my prediction. At some point people at the Justice Department, perhaps that prosecutor in Atlanta, are gonna have to make a determination about whether or not they want to indict Donald Trump.
Brennan: Will they do it?
Holder: Well, I think there’s gonna be sufficient factual information. And I think that there’s going to be sufficient proof of intent. And then the question becomes, what’s the impact of of such an indictment? I’m an institutionalist. My initial thought was not to indict the former president out of concern of how divisive it would be. But given what we have learned, I think that he probably has to be held accountable.

Holder is correct in saying that the status of Merrick’s progress with regard to a case against Trump is unknowable at this time. While frustrating for those who fear that Trump is getting away with his crimes, Merrick’s discretion is actually the proper way of handling any investigation.

However, it is encouraging that Holder, who is well acquainted with Department of Justice protocols, is convinced that both the facts and the intent sufficient to merit an indictment of Trump exist right now. What’s more, he is comfortable articulating that opinion on national television.

The only disappointing part of Holder’s remarks is his claim to be an “institutionalist,” which led him to initially lean against indicting Trump because it might be “divisive.” That is not a consideration based on legal principle. If there is evidence of a crime sufficient to convict, an indictment should be mandatory. Whether or not it is divisive is a political call that has nothing to do with the law. It would only create a gap in enforcement that allows the privileged class to escape punishment for their unlawful acts. It would place criminals like Trump above the law.

Notwithstanding his initial considerations, Holder has come to right conclusion. There is abundant evidence of numerous crimes that Trump has committed. He could be indicted today for violations of laws that related to his real estate business, his taxes, electoral fraud, intimidating government officials, abuse of power, perjury, and probably more. Hopefully AG Garland is working on indictments for these. Time will tell, but not until after it’s done frustrating.

Judge Dismisses Trump’s Loopy Lawsuit Against Twitter for ‘Failure to Plausibly State a Claim’

Throughout his public life, Donald Trump has tried to exploit the judicial system for profit or as a means of intimidating his foes. And, for the most part, he has succeeded only in wasting the court’s time and humiliating himself.

Donald Trump, Constitution

On Friday a United States District Court judge dismissed Trump’s lawsuit against Twitter. He filed the suit last year alleging a series of pitifully lame complaints that had no legal basis.

RELATED: Trump Declares that ‘I Am Not Going Back On Twitter’ After the Elon Musk Takeover

The suit sought “to order an immediate halt to social media companies’ illegal, shameful censorship of the American people.” By which he means himself being held accountable for his unconscionable remarks that incited an insurrection. As reported by CBS News

“A judge dismissed a lawsuit former President Trump brought last year against Twitter and its then-CEO Jack Dorsey. The social media giant had sought to dismiss the suit, which Trump filed after Twitter banned him from its platform, for ‘failure to plausibly state a claim.’

“Trump, the American Conservative Union and five other people claimed Twitter violated their right to free speech under the First Amendment after it ‘censored’ their accounts. U.S. District Judge for Northern California James Donato rejected their argument because Twitter is a private company, and the free speech clause in the Constitution applies only to the government. The judge found no evidence that Twitter acted on behalf of government officials, as plaintiffs also alleged.”

After occupying the White House for four years, Trump still doesn’t have the even the simplest grasp of the Constitution. Which is why he expected the court to take seriously his ludicrous demand…

“‘…to an end to the shadow-banning, a stop to the silencing and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing and canceling that you know so well,’ Trump said at the time. ‘I am confident that we will achieve a historic victory for American freedom and at the same time freedom of speech.'”

So much for Trump’s confidence in the legal nonsense that he and his incompetent lawyers burdened the court with. This suit joins several others that he filed recently that were equally as preposterous. Such as…

These lawsuits are emblematic of the idiocy that permeates Trump’s misunderstanding of the law. But they will surely not be the last attempts by Trump to abuse the justice system and fleece his glassy-eyed flock for funds to fight these futile legal battles. Which, in the end, is all that this is really about, and all that he cares about.

Comedy Cop Marjorie Taylor Greene Reports Jimmy Kimmel to Capitol Police for Telling a Joke

Marjorie Taylor Greene has made a name for herself as perhaps the most deranged and extremist member of an already extremist right-wing Republican caucus in the House of Representatives. Her frequent, and often bizarre, tirades have fueled division and hostility. Which was clearly her intention. It’s why she was suspended from Twitter for disseminating disinformation.

Marjorie Taylor Greene, Gun

Now Greene has appointed herself as the Chief of the Comedy Police on Capitol Hill. Revealing herself to be the flakiest of GOP snowflakes, Greene lashed out against late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel in response to a joke that she regarded as a threat. So she did what any red-blooded American goofball would do. She reported him to the police. For the record, this is joke that triggered “Empty” Greene:

“This woman, ‘Klan Mom,’ is especially upset with three Republican senators who said they’ll vote ‘yes’ on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who is nominated for the Supreme Court. she tweeted ‘Murkowski, Collins, and Romney are pro-pedophile. They just voted for #KBJ.’ Wow. Where is Will Smith when you really need him?””

Greene was so perturbed by the nomination of an eminently qualified Black woman to the Supreme Court that she was compelled to viciously malign her Republican colleagues in the Senate. Here is Greene’s announcement of the police filing, and Kimmel’s succinct reply:

This would be good time to remind people that it was Greene who gave a speech advocating that Nancy Pelosi be executed as a traitor” Greene also complained about what she called Pelosi’s “gazpacho police” (she meant Gestapo).

And that was not the only time that Greene sought to associate Pelosi with Nazis. She previously compared the House rule requiring members to wear masks during the height of the pandemic to the Holocaust. Because protecting people from a deadly virus is exactly the same as murdering millions of innocent people by gas.

There is a stark irony about Greene reporting Kimmel to the Capitol Police. Her prior history with that law enforcement agency is fraught with hypocrisy and animus. She notoriously supported the deadly riots took place in Washington, D.C. on January 6th, where more than 140 officers were injured, and five subsequently died. And she was among 21 Republicans who voted against honoring the Capitol Police with Congressional Gold Medals because she objected to referring to the insurrection as an insurrection.

Now Greene wants the Capitol Police to protect her from the ravages of rampaging humor. And yet, somehow, she thinks that people should still take her seriously. Yeah, that’ll happen. Maybe after Kimmel slaps her – with a lawsuit for filing a false police report.

UPDATE: Kimmel replied to Greene’s probably phony police report in his Thursday night monologue. He files a phony police report of his own:

NY Attorney General Letitia James Replies to Trump’s Ludicrous and Fear Driven Lawsuit

The former reality TV game show host and aspiring authoritarian dictator, Donald Trump, seems intent on advertising to the world just how frightened he is of his future that is filled with legal jeopardy and multiple civil and criminal prosecutions. He demonstrated that fear on Saturday by whining petulantly about Democrats as “vicious, violent, and Radical Left thugs” because “All the Democrats want to do is put people in jail.”

Trump Fear

Trump is right, sort of. Democrats do want to put people who have committed crimes in jail. And that’s precisely what Trump is so worried about. He knows what he’s done. Consequently, he is now escalating his war on justice with a preposterous lawsuit against New York Attorney General Letitia James. Trump was brought to this panicky point because James is investigating the well documented corruption of his real estate business. In his complaint, Trump asserts that…

“The investigations commenced by James are in no way connected to legitimate law enforcement goals, but rather, are merely a thinly-veiled effort to publicly malign Trump and his associates. Her mission is guided solely by political animus and a desire to harass, intimidate, and retaliate against a private citizen who she views as a political opponent.”

Trump’s suit seeks to prohibit the Attorney General from conducting investigations and taking part in any legal actions against him or his crime syndicate. He further alleges that James is engaging in an attempt to undermine him politically and violate his constitutional rights. As usual, he doesn’t bother to present any evidence to support his absurd and vengeance-driven allegations. What he does is release a statement (via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill) that is overtly threatening:

“Tell Letitia that she is not dealing with the Cuomo brothers, a corrupt Governor in a corrupt state, including your office and others, and Fredo, who did the Governor’s dirty work for him.”

Trump’s statement went on to brag that he endured “many years of investigation that nobody else could have survived.” He must have forgotten that he was impeached twice; his phony “university” was found guilty of fraud and forced to pay out $25 million to his victims; his crooked “charity” was shuttered and he and his family strictly constrained in running any other non-profit in New York for five years. And there is still pending litigation against him by women alleging that he sexually harassed and/or assaulted them.

Nevertheless, Trump is predictably calling the investigation in New York a (what else) “Witch Hunt.” Then he lashes out personally at James saying that she “should not be in office,” and that her decision not to run for governor (so that she could concentrate on the Trump case) indicated that the people of New York rejected her. But Trump’s impotent insult ignores that fact that James is still popular and is expected to win her reelection campaign for Attorney General.

James issued a brief reply to Trump’s Monday morning tirade:

“The Trump Organization has continually sought to delay our investigation into its business dealings and now Donald Trump and his namesake company have filed a lawsuit as an attempted collateral attack on that investigation. To be clear, neither Mr. Trump nor the Trump Organization get to dictate if and where they will answer for their actions. Our investigation will continue undeterred because no one is above the law, not even someone with the name Trump.”

So Trump’s attempt to bully James utterly failed to intimidated her. His pathetic lawsuit is likely to be laughed out of court. And the other pending cases against him will go forward as well. Trump will have to sit for depositions, which are likely to result in new charges of perjury when he invariably lies. And he will continue to whine until he manages to hire a competent attorney who isn’t afraid to tell him to shut up. But don’t hold your breath on that one.

Big Baby Trump Lashes Out at Adam Schiff for Urging the Justice Dept to Probe His Crimes

The best way to gauge what Donald Trump is most afraid of at any given point in time is to observe whatever he is ranting about at that time. And more often than not, Trump is ranting about his decisive loss to President Biden in the 2020 election.

Donald Trump, Adam Schiff

Ever since Trump’s humiliating rejection by a significant majority of the American people, he has persisted in lying about the election being “rigged” and “stolen” from him. Never mind that in more than a year – and sixty plus court cases – he has failed to produce a shred of evidence of his delusional charges.

A few weeks ago House Democrats formed the bipartisan Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Insurrection. Trump’s role in that atrocity has been well documented. So naturally he has taken to slandering the Committee and its members. He even issued a hysterical debate challenge to anyone willing to sully themselves by pandering to his lunacy. Of course, if he really wants to debate members of the January 6th Committee, he could just volunteer to show up and testify under oath. Don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen. FYI: Trump is now dodging the debate his proposed.

At the forefront of Trump’s diseased mind is Rep. Adam Schiff, who was also a key figure during Trump’s first impeachment. His closing arguments were a brilliant and moving summation of the offenses Trump committed that warranted his impeachment and removal from office. But now Trump is lashing out in his typically infantile manner at Schiff. He tweeted (via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill)…

“Do you believe that Shifty Adam Schiff is on the Committee concerning the 2020 protest when he was the one that scammed America and the World on the Russia, Russia, Russia Hoax? He’s a sleezeball that has no credibility and is so bad for our Nation!”

Notice that Trump is calling the deadly riots in Washington, D.C., that he incited a “protest.” And he continues to refer to the verified accounts of his unsavory connections to Russia as a “hoax.” As for the childish insults he hurled at Schiff, as usual they apply more accurately to himself.

This latest Trump tantrum was likely triggered by reports that Schiff is concerned that Attorney General Merrick Garland is not pursuing indictments against Trump and his crime syndicate. Schiff has been making the rounds on television news programs to promote his new book, Midnight in Washington: How We Almost Lost Our Democracy and Still Could. During those interviews Schiff has made a point of expressing his disappointment with the Attorney General:

“I think there’s a real desire on the part of the attorney general, for the most part, not to look backward,” Schiff said on the podcast. “Do I disagree with that? I do disagree with that, and I disagree with it most vehemently when it comes to what I consider even more serious offenses.”

Schiff’s views are shared by millions of Americans who are anxious to see Trump and his cronies held accountable for their anti-democratic activities. There is more than enough evidence to indict and convict Trump. Some of the evidence comes from Trump himself. There’s even an account from his coup plotting co-conspirator Alex Jones implicating him.

So Trump’s Twitter freak out is understandable. But it isn’t going to make things any better for him. To the contrary, it only affirms his consciousness of guilt. Hopefully Garland will heed Schiff’s warnings and get moving on the Trump investigation. There is little time to spare. Republicans are hoping to run out the clock. But for the sake of democracy, and the future of the country, Garland must not allow that to happen.

Fox News Ignores Steve Bannon Indictment to Run Jen Psaki’s Response to ‘Let’s Go Brandon’

The Department of Justice has finally announced that Donald Trump’s former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, has been indicted by a grand jury for contempt of Congress. The contempt referral was sent to the DOJ three weeks ago. So this indictment shows that, while the wheels of justice may turn slowly, they are turning.

Fox News, Jen Psaki

According to the release by the Justice Department…

“Stephen K. Bannon was indicted today by a federal grand jury on two counts of contempt of Congress stemming from his failure to comply with a subpoena issued by the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol.

“Bannon, 67, is charged with one contempt count involving his refusal to appear for a deposition and another involving his refusal to produce documents, despite a subpoena from the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol.”

It is unquestionably a major news event when one of the closest associates of a former president is indicted for multiple felonies. And that is apparent by the fact that every broadcast news network (ABC, CBS, and NBC), as well as the cable news networks (CNN and MSNBC), and even Newsmax, have all placed this breaking story at the top of their websites. The only exception to this is – you guessed it – Fox News. In fact, the story didn’t even appear on the Fox News website for more than an hour after it was reported by other news sites. And when it did appear, it was pushed way down the page and consisted of a single line of text with no accompanying graphic.

Instead of this explosive legal and political development, Fox News placed a story at the top of their page about White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki responding to a question about the childish and veiled vulgarity, anti-Biden chant of “Let’s go Brandon.” The headline read “HEARING THIS, ‘BRANDON’? WATCH: White House reveals Biden’s reaction to viral rallying cry sweeping the nation among his critics. Immediately below that were two related stories on the same subject.

The entire story consists of NBC News White House correspondent Peter Alexander asking Psaki what the President thought about the phrase that is wingnut code for “F**k Joe Biden.” Psaki’s reply was a succinct “I don’t think he spends much time focused on it or thinking about it.” Fox News characterized that as a “meltdown.”

Apparently, Fox News doesn’t want their audience to know that Bannon was indicted. But the best distraction that they could come up with was a trivial exchange about a silly, derogatory, partisan slogan. Consequently, Fox is just displaying their impotence as a propaganda outlet. Only the most ignorant consumers of media could be moved by this lame diversion. Fortunately for Fox, that’s exactly who makes up their audience.

Sen. Grassley Stands Up for Trump’s Right to Conspire to Stage a Coup with DOJ Staff

The evidence that Donald Trump was – and still is – engaged in a treasonous plot to overturn the 2020 presidential election continues to pour in. Recent reports reveal his attempts to pressure the acting Attorney General, Jeffrey Rosen, to “just say that the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me and the R. Congressmen.” Trump has not disputed these accounts.

Donald Trump, Constitution

The newly impaneled House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection just interviewed Rosen and, while the details have not been made public, there is general information that has been disclosed, and which are cause for serious concern. However, that concern is apparently not shared by Sen. Chuck Grassley, the ranking Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Instead, what Grassley was concerned with was that…

“This country has had to deal with Democrats’ obsession with destroying Trump for much too long. In the process I fear my colleagues on the other side of the aisle have done, and will do, lasting damage to our political system.”

If the Democrats are “obsessed” with anything, it’s the preservation of American democracy. And if anyone is doing “lasting damage to the political process,” it’s Donald Trump, who has become, in the words of Carl Bernstein, an American war criminal.” But that isn’t exactly how Grassley sees it. He went on to say that…

“The president has every right to discuss ideas and strategies with his closest advisors. The president, whether that president is Democrat or Republican, should feel unrestrained to bring ideas to his closest staff for robust discussion. Eventually the facts will come out and Trump will have to address them. Good or bad, depending on the facts at hand.

“However, the essential question that should be asked: What was the final decision? And that is my major concern about the recent public comments coming out of these interviews I’ve discussed relating to this new Trump investigation. Unlike my Democratic colleagues, I won’t discuss the evidence publicly at this point in time. But let me remind the American public with a couple already public points. Did Trump fire acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen? No, he did not fire him.”

To be clear, Grassley is making the case that the president has the right to conspire against the United States of America, and to that end, he must be free to discuss “ideas and strategies” for staging a coup to seize power. Really? Perhaps the ranking Republican member of the Judiciary Committee should peruse the U.S. Constitution. Because what he’s suggesting is a flagrant breach of the supreme law of the land.

What’s more, the “essential question” is certainly not “What was the final decision?” No more than that would be the essential question in a case of conspiracy to rob a bank. The conspiracy is unlawful in and of itself. And Trump’s decision not to fire Rosen only came about when he was confronted by the threat of mass resignations by Justice Department officials. Trump didn’t have pangs of conscience that led him to do the right thing. He had a stabbing fear that his exploits would lead to a “Saturday Night Massacre” moment and he would suffer the same fate that Richard Nixon did.

For Grassley utter these words on the Senate floor without any sense of shame is illustrative of just how far down the rabid hole he has sunk. And like most of the rest of the Republican Party, he is nothing more than a Trump flunky serving Dear Leader and ignoring the welfare – and the laws – of the nation. For that reason, the American people need to stay active and engaged and determined to vote out every Republican on the ballot in 2022. The stakes are too high to get complacent or apathetic. Not with people like Grassley in high positions of power.

Wannabe Dictator Trump Admits to Pressuring DOJ to ‘Just Say the Election Was Corrupt’

It isn’t often that a criminal under investigation for serious felonies makes public statements attesting to his guilt. That would be extraordinarily stupid, as well as an indication of a psychotic degree of arrogance and narcissism. So naturally, that’s precisely what Donald Trump has done in an astonishing statement that affirms his treasonous abuse of power.

Donald Trump Tyrant Dictator

Trump’s spokes-shill, Liz Harrington, released Trump’s statement in a tweet (a flagrant violation of Twitter’s Terms of Service that prohibit circumventing a ban). In the statement Trump was reacting to the recent revelation that he pressured the Department of Justice and his Acting Attorney General, Jeffrey Rosen, to “just say that the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me and the R. Congressmen.”

Notice that Trump was not asking the DOJ to establish a factual basis for saying the election was corrupt. He just wanted them to say it, despite a total lack of evidence. Then he and his fellow coup plotters in Congress (allegedly Jim Jordan and Ron Johnson) would take it from there.

More troubling is the fact that Trump’s statement didn’t deny any of the allegations. To the contrary, he affirmed that he had these wholly improper discussions with the DOJ, who told him that “much of the info you’re getting is false,” and that they “look[ed] at allegations but they do not pan out.” Undeterred, Trump persisted claiming bizarrely that “You guys may not be following the internet the way I do,” as if that admission of idiocy validated his “Big Lie.” Trump’s statement raged that…

“The corrupt and highly partisan House Democrats who run the House Oversight Committee yesterday released documents – including court findings dealing with the rigged election of 2020 – that they dishonestly described as attempting to overturn the election.

“In fact it was just the opposite. The documents were meant to uphold the integrity and honesty of elections and the sanctity of our vote. The American people want, and demand, the the President of the United States, it’s chief law enforcement officer in the country, stand with them to fight for Election Integrity and to investigate attempts to undermine our nation. Our country has just suffered an incredibly corrupt Presidential Election, and it is time for Congress and others to investigate how such corruption was allowed to take place rather than investigating those that are exposing this massive fraud on the American people.”

So Trump doesn’t dispute any of the substance of the documents that were released. He merely provides his own utterly irrational interpretation of their meaning. Fine. People – and juries – can judge for themselves what his own Justice officials were saying when he sought to coerce them into making deliberately false comments about the election. The DOJ’s contemporaneous notes, and their outright refusal to follow his orders, make clear that they didn’t accept his fictional and self-serving version of events.

Trump’s call for an investigation is laughable considering that he has already lost more than sixty court cases due to lack of evidence. Many of those cases were before judges that he appointed, including the Supreme Court. But if he wants Congress to probe the “massive fraud on the American people,” he should commit to voluntarily providing testimony under oath himself. Yeah, that’ll happen. However, he may not like the results when he is found to be responsible for the fraud, along with his Republican confederates, Fox News, and the rest of the decaying Trump Cult.

It Wasn’t Just Democrats: Trump Also Spied on Don McGahn, His Own White House Counsel

Last week it was disclosed that Donald Trump’s Department of Justice secretly seized phone data from Democratic opponents in what amounts to an authoritarian style inquisition. The targets of the probe included Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and impeachment manager Eric Swalwell. It was an unprecedented abuse of power triggered by Trump’s acute paranoia and dictatorial aspirations.

Donald Trump Red Face

The reports revealing the DOJ’s pursuit of data from members of Congress followed similar reports of secret data seizures from the press, including the New York Times, the Washington Post and CNN. The accumulation of such discoveries prompted people to wonder what else was going on during the Trump years that was still unknown. And now we know at least a little more. According to CNN

“Former Trump White House counsel Don McGahn and his wife received disclosures from Apple last month that their account records were sought by the Justice Department in February 2018, while McGahn was still the top lawyer representing the presidency, according to a person familiar.”

That’s right! Trump was actually spying on his own White House counsel and his family. It’s notable that the DOJ’s probe took place shortly after media reports that Trump had asked McGahn to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller. McGahn refused to do so, and even threatened to resign. This affair became even more bizarre when Trump went on TV and accused McGahn of perjury. McGahn was still his counsel at the time. Subsequently, Trump tried to pressure McGahn to cover up the request.

It’s one sort of gross malfeasance for Trump to go after his political foes. It’s another thing entirely to go after his allies and current staffers. This revelation should make everyone who ever worked for Trump wonder if they were – or will be – victims of his snooping. In fact, they should assume so.

Trump has no sense of boundaries whether it comes to loyalty, morality, or the law. His malignant narcissism compels him to regard only his own welfare as relevant. And his behavior as observed over decades – and especially in the White House – affirms that he will throw anyone and everyone under his fleet of vengeance seeking buses.

Fox News Homepage Ignores Shocking Story About Trump’s DOJ Spying on Democrats

When Donald Trump was still occupying the White House, it was common to see Fox News acting as his Ministry of Disinformation. It was the fulfillment of their mission as the wholly committed right-wing mouthpiece for ultra-conservative propaganda. And Fox News carried out their mission without hesitation or shame.

Donald Trump Fox News

However, it might have been fair to assume that after Trump was unceremoniously evicted from the People’s House by the millions of Americans who preferred Joe Biden, that Fox News would either moderate their acute Trumpism or transfer it to some other Republican hack. But that is not how the early months of the post-Trump era have played out. Fox News, as well as Trump’s cult disciples, have remained as faithful to the impotent loser as ever.

For its part, Fox News is still devotedly serving the interests of Trump despite his banishment to irrelevancy in Mar-a-Lago or some other gauche golf resort. They are still maligning Trump’s political foes. They are still slobbering over his imaginary achievements. They recently refused to air an ad supporting the police who defended the Capitol during the Trump Insurrection because it revealed the truth about Trump’s complicity with the riots. And Fox News is still burying any bad news that could reflect poorly (i.e. honestly) on Trump and his record of failure. For instance, Fox didn’t bother to report on Trump’s treasonous statement declaring his trust for Vladimir Putin over President Biden on the eve of the first summit meeting between the two.

What’s more, on the day following the ghastly disclosure that Trump’s Department of Justice had unlawfully spied on Democratic members of Congress, the Fox News website courageously ran away from any journalistic duty and ignored the shocking story completely. There was not a single mention of this unprecedented abuse of power on their home page. Why should there be? It would only tarnish Trump’s already toxic reputation, and that isn’t what Fox was built for.

Never mind that Fox News obediently covered it every time that Trump falsely accused President Obama and other Democrats of spying on him. So what did Fox feature instead of the totalitarian assault on Trump’s political critics?

That’s right! While Fox News was ignoring a truly groundbreaking scoop, they chose to run a story about other networks ignoring a manufactured squabble amongst partisans. This was hardly national news. It involved an allegedly controversial remark by a young congresswoman from Minnesota with no seniority or leadership position. But she is also Black and Muslim, which makes her a favorite foil for Fox News.

In the article on this matter, Fox twisted Rep. Ilhan Omar’s comments and didn’t bother to mention her clarification until literally the last paragraph. Because that’s just how Fox rolls. They surely cannot argue that there is any equivalency between the Omar story that they posted on their home page and the DOJ story that they didn’t. And only further proves that there is nothing about Fox that can be classified as news.
