William Barr and the fall of the Department of Justice.

"If ever there were a time for the American legal profession to put down its yellow pads and stand up for the rule of law, it’s today, en masse, and without waiting for someone, more senior, somewhere, to lead the way."

Adam Serwer: The First Days of the Trump Regime - The Atlantic
Trump has interpreted his acquittal by the Republican controlled Senate as a writ of absolute power, and the only way to stop him is in an election he is determined to keep from being free or fair. This is how democracies are unmade.

What Matt Bevin’s 2019 Loss Doesn’t Mean for Donald Trump in 2020 – Rolling Stone

As long as the president still has his cult of personality and is still selling white supremacy, and as long as domestic disenfranchisement is pairing with foreign election interference to silence American voters whom Republicans don’t like, Trump stands a great chance of being re-elected

Only the scoundrels and weirdos are telling the truth about working for Trump - The Washington Post

Perhaps this shouldn’t surprise us. Humans are social animals, and in ordinary times, those willing to sublimate their own needs and preferences to the needs of their social group are those we praise and admire. But decades of social psychology research suggests that in times of moral crisis, the very traits we normally value can discourage dissent

The false prophet in the White House

This might be the truest article I’ve read about the Cult of Donald Trump, whose supporters really do say (and have told me) he was sent to Washington by God.

F.E.C. Allows Security Company to Help 2020 Candidates Defend Campaigns - The New York Times

Such attacks are not just hypothetical. Americans still lack a clear understanding of the impact successful Russian attacks had on the 2016 election. Both the special counsel report and leaked National Security Agency documents show that Russian hackers infiltrated the United States’ vast back-end election apparatus, including voter registration databases and electronic pollbook vendors, in 2016.
