First Read notes it’s hard to keep up with all of the alleged scandals hitting the Trump administration, including three just yesterday:
- Trump asked his acting attorney general to put a Trump ally, the U.S. attorney in New York, in charge of the Michael Cohen investigation, according to the New York Times.
- Whistleblowers “have told a congressional committee that efforts by former national security adviser Michael Flynn to transfer sensitive nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia may have violated the law, and investigators fear Trump is still considering it,” NBC News reports.
- “House and Senate Democrats say they have obtained evidence that a senior official at the Department of Education tried to oust the department’s independent watchdog after she pushed back on an attempt to interfere in an active investigation of Secretary Betsy DeVos,” per NBC News.
“Any one of these stories would have dominated the news — for days and weeks — in any other administration. But in our current era, it was just Tuesday.”Save to Favorites
