This is how it works. The big lie. The endless spin. The outright denial of facts. Again and again and again. In "William Barr's War on Reality, Truth, and the Law," I break down how far the attorney general is willing to go to erase the truth in order to protect the president. I hope you'll give it a read. And if you think we need more reporting that isn't afraid to call a lie a lie, I hope you'll pitch in with a year-end donation so we can reach our big $600,000 goal this month and keep on charging ahead in 2020.
David Corn doesn't mince words because thanks to support from readers, we don't have to. Read his latest about the treachery in the Trump administration, and please support Mother Jones' journalism that calls a lie a lie with a year-end donation today.
