The Department of Justice (DOJ) will allow some members of Congress to view a copy of special counsel Robert Mueller's report "without certain redactions," federal prosecutors said in a court filing Wednesday.
Bret Easton Ellis, the author of American Psycho (1991) and (Imperial Bedrooms, 2010, etc.) will not endear himself to those who are politically left-leaning with his latest effort, "White".
Repeatedly, he assails liberals for failing to accept the election of Donald Trump -- and for helping to make everyone hysterical about having to see, read, and think about things we don't agree with. The left, he writes near the end, has become "a rage machine" and "spoiled children." Ultimately, his principal interest is in the fractured American culture, political and otherwise.
He rails against college students who demand "trigger warnings"; blasts the traditional media; tells stories about the excessive reactions to his tweets; and celebrates some current cultural outcasts, including Charlie Sheen, Roseanne Barr, and Kanye West. Well-written pieces bubbling with attitude and self-confidence but, at times, as judgmental as those Ellis condemns.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Trump aides said there were no plans for a "war room" or some other rapid-reaction team. "We haven't seen it. So it's hard to say how we'll handle it," the White House official said, even as congressional offices plan food and alcohol stockpiles to fuel all-hands-on-deck efforts to digest its contents as quickly as possible. read more

A look at what types of material Barr is redacting, and why Democrats say it should be released: read more
The most consequential editing process in the country is almost over. Lawyers from the Justice Department and the special counsel's office have each gone word by word, sentence by sentence through the nearly 400-page confidential report that Robert S. Mueller III completed last month, using color coding to conceal classified or other protected information. read more
