Republicans Doing Their Best to Look Like Idiots Today


From the annals of headlines your presidential campaign really doesn’t want to see:

In other news, Republicans are currently grilling FBI Director James Comey about his decision not to recommend prosecution of Hillary Clinton over her email server. I’m “watching” the hearing on Twitter, and it doesn’t seem to be going well. It turns out that Comey is considerably smarter than your average GOP member of Congress. “There’s no evidence that she lied to the FBI,” he says clearly, thus proving the old adage that you shouldn’t ask a question you don’t know the answer to. The upshot of the whole thing may actually help blunt some of the criticisms Comey made of Clinton in his press conference on Tuesday. Nice work!

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
