      One is not required to bomb hospitals, to torture, or to engage in mass killing of civilians when one is a chief of state. “My favorite war criminal did less war crimes than your war criminal,” is not a defense. That people feel the need to defend those who do such things when in power […]

Seth Abramson says that Katie Hill, Representative of California’s 25th district and who was compelled to resign due to revenge porn posted online by her ex-husband, may have been targeted by associates of George Papadopolous.
