mal

The latest filing by Special Counsel John Durham, investigating Russiagate and the Hillary Clinton campaign, suggests the rabbit hole goes a bit deeper than we thought. One hates to sound like Rachel Maddow, but it is just that much more likely the walls are closing in. Durham filed a new, 34-page motion on April 15, 2022, in answer to defendant Michael Sussman's request to dismiss the case against him. Durham accused Sussman of lying to the FBI about his working for the Clinton Campaign while he was trying to sell the Bureau on an investigation into Trump's ties to Russia, focusing on...

But Assange is an outsider who has regularly and effectively embarrassed the U.S. government. And he is paying a severe and disproportionate price for that. At the end, Gosztola lays out why he...

Cancel Culture only has a total of four plays in its playbook: Accuse of misinformation/fringe opinion Accuse of racism Accuse of sex abuse Accuse of national security threat/threat to democracy After that, they're out of plays.

The decision is key in the Wikileaks founder’s fight for freedom. However, Assange will remain...
