Littwin: What the heavily redacted affidavit for Mar-a-Lago search doesn’t redact is Trump’s growing legal woes

I’ve read over the heavily redacted affidavit justifying the Mar-a-Lago search warrant several times because, well, it’s my job.

Littwin: When Boris Johnson was dumped by his party, who didn’t ask the question — why Johnson and not Trump?

When the news hit of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s resignation, forced by massive dissent in his own party, a lot of us immediately arrived at the same burning question. How could British Conservatives dump Donald Trump’s pal Boris Johnson so convincingly when nearly all American Republicans still genuflect at the very mention of Trump’s […]
