Every week I come across articles that I find interesting and that I think you all here at Political⚡Charge might enjoy as well. Here are this week’s recommendations.

Trump’s Toadies Should Take Note: Watergate Says Everyone Goes Down 

An excerpt: “Nixon’s congressional toadies avoided courts of law, but they couldn’t escape the court of public opinion. Republicans fared so badly in the 1974 elections that prominent conservatives pronounced the GOP DOA. … William Rusher, publisher of National Review, wanted to scrap it all and start fresh with a “Conservative Party,” led by Ronald Reagan or George Wallace.”

Dear Republicans: Welcome to the New Establishment

An excerpt: “But Bannon, Gorka, and Miller are the very sort of men who support Donald Trump Jr., and the very sort of men whom he supports. And like it or not, they are the face of today’s conservatism and today’s Republican party. Earlier this month, emails were leaked that definitively proved Stephen Miller’s white supremacy, and not a single Republican member of Congress has joined the call for his resignation. As Jeet Heer put it back in August, Stephen Miller’s Republicanism is perfectly mainstream.”

Trump’s Turkey Corruption Is Way Worse Than You Realize

An excerpt: “The president’s former national security advisor suggested that the commander-in-chief made life or death national security decisions because of an active conflict of interest related to his business? Even by the standards of Trumpian corruption, this is holy-motherforking-shirtballs level stuff.”
