Hillary’s Misogyny Problem (It Isn’t What She Thinks)

Hillary Clinton has blamed her historic defeat in 2016 on misogyny, at least in part. Speaking at Tina Brown’s Women in the World conference in April, Clinton observed of America’s failure to break the glass ceiling and make her its first woman president, “It is fair to say that certainly misogyny played a

America’s Newest Epidemic: Toxic Russophobia

Since Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 election, a constant drumbeat of Russophobia has resounded throughout the halls of power. Today, the drumbeat has become so deafening that Congress’s already self-imposed inability to legislate has been made even worse, if you can believe it.

Mueller’s Investigation Must Be Limited and Accountable

How much goalpost moving should be tolerable in the Trump-Russia collusion investigation? Remember, we started with an allegation that the Trump campaign may have been complicit in the Putin regime’s “cyber-espionage”—i.e., the hacking our intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian government operatives carried out against email accounts tied to Democrats.
