Donald Trump's touting of chloroquine as a COVID-19 cure on Friday resulted in a death Monday in Arizona when a couple ingested an aquarium version of the compound. Now, with 6 of his 7 most lucrative properties shut down, he wants to drop social distancing directives so he can "restart the economy". Such a move so soon very likely will kill over a million Americans.

There's no public evidence that Bill Barr sabotaged the Concord Management prosecution. Rather, it seems likely it just became too costly to continue to let Yevgeniy Prigozhin exploit his own prosecution as an intelligence gathering effort.

Trump claims he's preparing to pardon Mike Flynn soon. Whether before or after he does that, it makes it imperative that DOJ release the evidence that Flynn was not a rogue liar, but was instead part of a cover-up.

We still haven't learned the results of Ronna McDaniel's COVID-19 test, which she took on Friday. That doesn't bode well for President Trump's willingness to talk about the secondary transmission of this disease, at least not if it happened at his own resort.

It's rough being a career member of the US State Department workforce in the Donald Trump era. These days, there's a new rule: don't do anything to make the guy in the room with no corners look bad. This is becoming increasingly hard for anyone to follow.
