On February 14th, 2017, the head of US Special Operations Command said that the federal government is in "unbelievable turmoil," and that he hopes it gets sorted out soon because we are "a nation at war." That's reassuring.
On February 14th, 2017, Alternet did a very comprehensive report on the initiative by congressional republicans to mark Muslim civil society groups as terrorists. The initiative is, of course, backed by DT.
On February 15th, 2017, in a series of back to back tweets, DT claimed that the "fake news" reporting on his Russian connections was a conspiracy to distract from Secretary Hillary Clinton's failed campaign for President, and that leaks to the New York Times and Washington Post were illegally obtained. I would say that it's not clear whether DT realizes that false information is not under any confidentiality order and therefore he was undermining his own argument that the information is false by calling it illegally leaked, but let's be honest... he doesn't.
On February 15th, 2017, republican Representative Steve King, who is actually a vocally outspoken white nationalist and supremacist, said that the federal government should "purge" members of the intelligence community who have leaked information on DT's Russia ties to the media.
On February 15th, 2017, after several Senators recommended that DT withdraw his nomination of sleeze bag, wife beater, and hamburger CEO Andrew Pudzer as Secretary of Labor, Pudzer decided to take the matter into his own hands and withdraw himself from consideration. Pudzer was likely to be the first and perhaps only DT nominee who would not be confirmed.
On February 15th, 2017, DT made a complete fool of himself with a world leader, again, this time Benjamin Netanyahu. In his joint press conference with the Prime Minister, he completely garbled a question about anti-semitism, displaying that he may not even know what the word means, and when asked if he favored a one or two state solution, said, "I like the one that both parties like. I'm very happy with the one that both parties like. I can live with either one."
On February 15th, 2017, the FBI released documents on the race discrimination investigation brought against DT and his real estate companies in the 1970s. The documents were released under the Freedom of Information Act.
On February 15th, 2017, the Miami Herald reported that Marlins baseball team owner Jeffrey Loria is likely to be nominated as Ambassador to France. The Kushner family is in talks to buy the baseball team.
On February 15th, 2017, the New York Times reported that DT plans to use Cerberus Capital Management co-founder Stephen Feinberg to lead a broad review of US intelligence agencies. Feinberg is a hedge fund manager with absolutely zero experience in intelligence or government, but a long time supporter of DT and close associate of noted white supremacist and neo-Nazi Steve Bannon and DT's son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
On February 15th, 2017, the El Paso Times reported that ICE detained a domestic violence victim who was reported by the man who abused her after she obtained an order of protection against him on February 9th.
On February 15th, 2017, NBC Washington reported that ICE agents were waiting outside of a church shelter set up to protect homeless people from hypothermia in order to arrest and detain people as they came out of the shelter.
On February 15th, 2017, the New York Daily News reported that Robert Doggart, the man who was arrested for plotting to attack a mosque in New York, will not be charged with terrorism because the law almost exclusively focuses on foreign extremists.
