Thursday Morning News Roundup

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Here’s the news roundup for this morning:

  • BoJo has taken himself out of the race to be Britain’s next prime minister. I guess he didn’t feel like trying to clean up the mess he made by winning the Brexit vote.
  • Donald Trump apparently had a special console in his bedroom at Mar-a-Lago so he could listen in on staff phone calls.
  • Bill Clinton met privately with Attorney General Loretta Lynch in Phoenix. It was just a social call, they said, but everyone agrees the optics are pretty terrible.

And that’s just the past few hours….

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
