About the author


  1. Mark Esper, who served as defense secretary for former President Trump, explains why he decided to wait to reveal bombshell stories about the Trump administration until after the 2020 election.

  2. President Joe Biden made his first in-person appearance on a late night talk show when he stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Wednesday night.

  3. In documentary footage from filmmaker Alex Holder, former presidential adviser Ivanka Trump says she supported the count of every vote in the 2020 election despite former President Donald Trump’s attempt to stop the vote count. CNN’s Jake Tapper and Pamela Brown break down how her comments differ from her interview with the January 6 committee.

  4. Russia’s move to cut off natural gas supplies to Poland and Bulgaria, and more recently Finland, parts of Germany and potentially Denmark and the Netherlands, is just the latest salvo in its ongoing weaponization of energy for political purposes. If allowed to continue unchecked, the war in Ukraine will not only weaken geopolitical stability, but it will also worsen global warming. That’s why it makes perfect sense in the short term for the US to increase both the amount of liquified natural gas (LNG) it exports to the European Union and countries across Asia and boost its investment in carbon-free energy production.

  5. NATO military officials said Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg’s announcement earlier this week that 300,000 troops would be placed on high alert across the alliance is something the alliance will work on going forward, rather than an immediate shift.

  6. Soon after former President Donald Trump returned 15 boxes of presidential records to the National Archives and Records Administration earlier this year, he instructed one of his lawyers to tell the agency that all of the materials the Archives had requested had been returned from his Mar-a-Lago estate, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.
