Pathetic Senate Republicans abandon principles by embracing Trump’s emergency declaration – Washington Examiner

Friday, March 15, 2019

And that’s what the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday. Cohen’s current attorney,…

Friday, March 08, 2019

Before joining President Trump’s campaign to “drain the swamp” of Washington corruption, Paul Manafort perfected a revolving door between respectable Republican politics and dictators who gave him millions of dollars.
