Thanks to a middle schooler, there is plenty for Pittsfield residents to read this summer

BOOK REVIEW: ‘A Very Stable Genius’ — not

In retrospect, humiliating Sessions seems petty compared to reassuring the American public that anyone can get a test whenever they need for a virus that can kill them, when, in fact, they can’t get a test because this very stable genius had already presided over the mass firing of the very people who know most about viruses, and had already cut the budgets of every agency we’d normally rely on to combat the disease.

BOOK REVIEW: ‘Crime in Progress,’ an attempt to set the record straight, offers other side of story

I found it refreshing that Simpson is honest enough to admit Fusion didn’t appreciate the great stakes involved, and I credit him with acknowledging the integrity of Christopher Steele, a man who’s been unfairly vilified. More than anyone else, he is the hero of this story.

BOOK REVIEW: ‘A Warning’ a chilling account of the Trump administration that’s not easily put down

At the end of the day, what’s most important is what Anonymous has been a witness to, and what we learn about our commander in chief.

CONNECTIONS: The idea of America is in danger

If America is an idea...it would be in the interest of anyone who wanted to weaken America to weaken the public’s understanding of, and trust and belief in, that idea.

BOOK REVIEW: ‘Siege’ reveals the constant provocations, never-ending nastiness of the Trump administration

Episode after episode reveals a mean-spirited, self-absorbed bully who doesn’t read, study or listen to anyone who says anything he disagrees with.

Mueller for Dummies, Part II: Obstruction of justice

Mueller lists the actions that prompted his decision “that there was a sufficient factual and legal basis to further investigate potential obstruction-of-justice issues involving the President.”

Mueller for Dummies, Part I: Russia

Everything was made even more complicated for us when Attorney General William Barr and his deputy AG Rod Rosenstein decided to jump the gun and mischaracterize the report while keeping from Congress and the public the most easily understood sections of Mueller’s finding: the summaries.

ORANGE ALERT: The (almost) daily outrage

In instance after instance, his staff acted as a bulwark against Mr. Trump’s most destructive impulses.

CONNECTIONS: Waiting for Mueller

All the clever people who were calculating the odds, acutely judging the politics, and weighing cost/benefit, what do they have to say now? All elected officials who cared more about keeping their jobs than doing their jobs, how do they like waiting for Mueller now?

Activists rally, demand that officials #ReleaseThe(full)Report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller

Many were carrying—or, in some cases, wearing—signs condemning Trump and demanding that officials "release the full report" and insisting that "no one is above the law."

REVIEW: ‘The Threat’ offers a nuanced look at the always-complex challenges of trying to enforce law and order

Andrew McCabe has spent his life on the front lines and appreciates the stakes in a way most of us can’t. His passion is matched by his sense of urgency. It says something when some of the toughest folks in the land—FBI officials, former CIA officials—are frightened.

The Trump Chronicles: Collusion, No. Conspiracy, Yes.

Let’s start with the fact, and praise be to the Times for finally using the right word, that there are too many people using the wrong word: “collusion.” The president and his odd PR attorney Rudy Giuliani insist there is no proof of capital “C” collusion.

CONNECTIONS: Waiting for impeachment

Might not public hearings commence so we as a nation can come together, experience the presentation of evidence, and agree on the necessity to bring a charge (impeachment) or the lack of justification for impeachment? Every report ends with the words “we must wait for Mueller.” Must we?

BOOK REVIEW: ‘House of Trump, House of Putin,’ the plot to put a Russian operative in the White House

Unger makes several startling claims: Trump was but one of dozens of U.S. politicians and businesspeople targeted over more than 20 years who became indebted to Russia.
