President Donald Trump has decided to hire John Bolton to replace General H.R. McMaster to be his National Security Advisor—his third in 14 months. It is amazing, really, that there are people left who believe that Trump accepts advice. Good luck, Mr. Bolton.
We are under attack by an unfriendly foreign power and are sadly saddled with a chief executive who refuses to act. In fact, he absolutely will not criticize Putin. Either the Russians have compromised Trump in some way or we have the most gullible and naive man ever to inhabit the Oval Office.
President Trump continued his submissive behavior toward Vladimir Putin this week congratulating him on victory in a rigged election. But I am not worried, because Saul Berenson, of 'Homeland," is now on the case tracking down the Russians responsible for poisoning our information ecosystem.
Hours before calling Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to tell him he was being fired from his position, Trump publicly announced Tillerson’s firing in a tweet. With that tweet, once again, Trump demonstrated two things: He has no loyalty to those who serve in his administration and he has no class.
Senate Republicans are delaying the confirmation of President Donald Trump’s nominee to be the U.S. Attorney in Maryland until they receive information from the Department of Justice related to the special counsel’s Russia probe, The Baltimore Sun has learned.

It is President Trump's character that leads me to think he didn't collude with Russia, at least not in a way the impeachment-hungry mob hopes he did. But that doesn't mean he doesn't have something to hide.
"No American, no President, is above the law," Maryland congressional candidate writes. "We are in a seminal, watershed moment in American history. We are observing a wholesale assault on our American democracy."
How close are we going to skate to the edge of losing democracy before we decide to regulate social media platforms like Facebook? We have given the Mark Zuckerbergs of this nation a free hand longer than any other media operators in the world, and they have shown no real social responsibility.

Does anyone seriously think that health care, immigration, or tax reform can be solved by one party? Compromise and consensus are the cornerstones of our form of government, but these principles seem to have been relegated to the junk heap.
Democrats on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee are calling on the Trump administration to vastly expand the U.S. response to Russian interference in elections, including with increased sanctions and an inter-agency body to coordinate government policies.
