Trump’s Message: Full Transparency to Restore Trust

Back in the day, I wrote for a president. Not speeches, mind you, but special correspondence and proclamations. Watching this entire nauseating mess with the Justice Department and the FBI—agencies that many believe are corrupt to their core—I thought I'd write a statement for President Donald J. Trump that he could use to

A Feeble Pushback Against the Inspector General’s Whitewash

For even the most cynical among us, there is a Baghdad Bob aura of unreality about the Justice Department Inspector General’s report absolving the FBI of partisan wrongdoing in the Clinton email investigation.

Moms to Daughters: Don’t Be Ali Watkins

The case of Ali Watkins offers mothers an opening to have an uncomfortable yet necessary conversation with their daughters: Don’t sleep your way to the top. One would think in this #metoo, female empowerment, equal pay, don’t-even-tell-me-my-dress-is-pretty climate of workplace taboos, that conversation would be unnecessary. Twentysomething women and their successors have been
