Now, for a limited time only, David Waldman will be passing out these all-new KITM Fun-Size treats! Just the right size for summer and back-to-school season (as well as filling in the time slot) while I assume, David zip-lines over waterfalls and sloths.
The walls are always closing in on Donald Trump. One of those times was just ahead of January 6, when Trump was leaning on acting attorney general, Jeffrey Rosen, to help him overthrow democracy. Justice Department official Richard Donoghue ended up taking notes on those meetings, which were given to Congress last Wednesday and released to the public on Friday.
According to the notes, Rosen told Trump that the Justice Department "can’t + won’t snap its fingers + change the outcome of the election." Donald pretended to understand and replied, "just say the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me and the R. Congressmen." This felt a little coup-y to the sane people in the room. Trump, sensing this, then plotted to replace Rosen with an new acting toady, Jeffrey Clark.
