    Trump’s Singapore Summit Was a Bust—for the U.S.
    The only language on ‘denuclearization’ the two sides agreed on in their joint statement was complete pablum, and it puts the future relationship with South Korea in doubt

    ...But there’s little question that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un got the better end of the bargain out of the meeting; for Donald Trump, like previous U.S. presidents, the prospect of setting North Korea along the path to disarmament remains remote.

    Can Trump Commit Treason and Get Away With It?
    Trump and his lawyers are claiming absurd powers under the rubric of ‘executive power.’ Does that include committing treason?

    STEVEN LUBET


    ...If the chief law enforcement officer has carte blanche to define obstruction of justice (thus allowing him to derail investigations at will), then the chief foreign policy officer must have the same authority to determine which nations are and are not our enemies (thus allowing him to give aid and comfort to the foreign power of his choice). That is obviously an absurd outcome, but it is virtually compelled by the logic of the Kasowitz and Dowd letter, which makes the president the ultimate decider of the legality of his own actions.

    ‘Is it just me or does it look like President Obama is more willing to give his time to our enemies than our allies?’ the Fox News host asked in 2013

    ...But as The Daily Show expertly demonstrated in an online-only video that hit Twitter just as Hannity’s broadcast began, he was not quite as supportive of handing diplomatic victories to murderous dictators when Barack Obama was in office.

    Republicans in Congress remain silent after Steve King retweets Nazi sympathizer
    Republicans may shun controversial Virginia Senate candidate Corey Stewart — but they won’t criticize a colleague

    MATTHEW ROZSA


    ...resident Donald Trump is not the only prominent Republican with a racism problem.

    Just look at Rep. Steve King of Iowa and the recently minted GOP candidate for Senate in Virginia, Corey Stewart, both of whom have a long history of spreading racist rhetoric; their treatment is in many ways the tale of two Republican parties — and, more specifically, how the GOP can have wildly varying approaches toward addressing problematic attitudes within their own party.

    Short on staff, the Trump administration turns to a job fair

    WASHINGTON — President Trump once promised to hire “the best people,” even as he also promised to drastically reduce the size of the federal government, perhaps by eliminating some agencies altogether. But more than a year into his first foray into the astonishingly complex realm of public service (who could have known?), Trump is discovering that even limited government needs plenty of workers to carry out its functions.

    ...Mueller is one of six top attorneys on the investigative team who earn $161,900 annually, according to a Department of Justice document reviewed by MONEY.

    Four of them — Mueller himself plus Jeannie Rhee, James Quarles and Aaron Zebley — had been partners at the international law firm WilmerHale, where according to the Washington Post, they drew incomes ranging from $1.4 million to $5.8 million over 2016 and the early part of 2017.
