In Targeting Reporter, Justice Dept. Backs Trump's Anti-Press Rhetoric

The revelation on Thursday that the Justice Department had seized years of phone and email records from Ali Watkins, a New York Times journalist, raised concerns that the Trump administration was adopting a highly aggressive approach, continuing a crackdown that ramped up in the Obama years.

“We’ve had other presidents who took action against the press,” Mr. Abrams said. “But we’ve never had a president who was more publicly engaged in the denigration on a daily basis of the press, in attacking its product and its good faith.”

He added, of the Watkins case: “One asks, one wonders, is this the first of much more to come?”

McCaskill: Clinton should be more careful in how she describes Trump voters


Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) said in an interview on Sunday that former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton needs to be more careful in how she describes President Trump's voters.

"For those of us that are in states that Trump won we would really appreciate if she would be more careful and show respect to every American voter and not just the ones who voted for her," McCaskill told MSNBC's Kasie Hunt.

McCaskill also spoke out against Clinton's remarks earlier this month.

“Those are kind of fighting words for me, because I’m partial to Missouri voters,” she said.

“I think they were expressing their frustration with the status quo. I may not have agreed with their choice, but I certainly respect them.

And I don’t think that’s the way you should talk about any voter, especially ones in my state.”

I have to agree with McCaskill on this one. Blaming the voters is a poor strategy for Democrats. Focus on the opponent and the issues.

U.S. loses bid to halt children's climate change lawsuit

Here's another instance of young people leading the way. This lawsuit was first filed by a group of Oregon high school students in 2015.


A federal appeals court on Wednesday rejected the U.S. government's bid to halt a lawsuit by young people claiming that President Donald Trump and his administration are violating their constitutional rights by ignoring the harms caused by climate change.

Twenty-one plaintiffs, now aged 10 to 21, accused federal officials and oil industry executives of knowing for decades that carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels destabilize the climate, but refusing to do anything about it. They said this has deprived them of their due process rights to life, liberty and property, including to live in a habitable climate.
