Trump: Sure, I Said It. But Subtly.

And now we enter Phase 5:

Trump didn’t literally say “If you don’t investigate Biden you’ll never see a dime of American money.” He just made sure they understood. And that makes it all different.

Today is September 23, and I’ll note for the record that there is still virtually no breaking of ranks among Republicans over this. Mitt Romney and Susan Collins have expressed some modest concern, but that’s about it. It’s especially noteworthy that Republicans in Congress haven’t called for the whistleblower complaint to be released to Congress, as required by law. They care more about protecting Trump than they do about their own branch of government being shat on.

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
