Trump's Supreme Court nominee isn't so sure the court should have compelled Nixon to turn over the Watergate tapes in 1974.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's views on presidential powers are not helping those concerned about the integrity of the Russia investigation sleep better at night.

And yet all we hear from the notoriously outspoken group is crickets.

from the thread article, which is a great read...

"In essence, Putin received some of the proceeds of this crime, and he is terrified that the Magnitsky Act could be applied to his offshore fortune, which is probably one of the largest amassed in modern times."
