Russia Meddled and Almost Nobody Cared, Until . . .

Political leaders and journalists are deeply concerned about Russian meddling in U.S. elections. Took ’em long enough. The Russians have been meddling in U.S. elections for at least 70 years. In 1948, the Progressive Party—a front for the Soviet-controlled Communist Party—ran former Vice President Henry Wallace (pictured above with actor Edward G. Robinson)

Peter Strzok and Lisa Page: A Deep-State Love Story

Maybe I’m a hopeless romantic clinging to an old-fashioned idea that power really is “the ultimate aphrodisiac,” as Henry Kissinger once said. So while pundits debate how the Justice Department and FBI will ever recover from the latest inspector general’s report, I find myself wondering . . . hoping that Washington’s most famous

Carter Page is the Biggest Victim in the Trump-Russia Hoax

It’s hard to get a read on Carter Page. Since the Trump campaign volunteer became a central figure in the Obama administration’s plot to sabotage Donald Trump’s candidacy and undermine—if not destroy—his presidency, Page has been the target of numerous death threats. He is mocked by opinion writers and the public. (Just check

Did the Obama Administration Spy on Michael Flynn?

In his controversial tweet on Sunday, President Trump indicated that he would direct the Justice Department to investigate “whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes—and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!” Is the president hinting that he thinks
