Hillary Clinton’s new memoir compares Trump’s ‘war on truth’ to Orwell’s 1984 | US news | The Guardian

Here’s an excellent must read article from the Guardian. It reports that the former presidential candidate’s new book, What Happened, tries to come to terms with her election defeat and likens Trump to the dystopian classic.

The article reopens all the wounds and reminds us of Russia’s involvement in support of Donald Trump. It leaves readers questioning just how supportive were the Trump team in return.

From the beginning the election was Clinton’s to lose, she was way ahead and she stumbled – she must take responsibility for her failure. But the points raised in the book need proper public debate. Her views on Trump will no doubt draw an ugly response from team Trump, creating publicity for her book.

Special Counsel Mueller Focuses On Trump’s Son – Buzz Feed News

Controversial Buzzfeed News  currently has the hottest Trump news story on Twitter, claiming that Special Counsel Mueller is focusing on Trump’s son.

It argues that prosecutors investigating possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign are bearing down on the president’s son, attempting to figure out his intent when he attended a meeting in which he was promised dirt on Hillary Clinton as part of Russia’s support for Trump’s campaign. It suggests that the question of intent could be crucial in determining if Donald Trump Jr. violated the law.

Although the article is full of speculation and assumptions –  very light on evidence – it brings the pressure back on the Trump family.

But with increased pressure on the Trump family, perhaps we’ll see Steve Bannon try to strengthen his influence and offer Trump a winning formula once again?

Footnote:

Bannon has since been fired from his role at the White House and has announced that he’s returning to Breibart News. I sense that Bannon is still important to Trump if Trump wants to retain the support of those who voted for him
