MOUNT VERNON, NY — January 6, 2020 — One more Republican is needed for a majority of U.S. Senators to move Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. A fair Senate trial should be the end-game. The American public deserve to hear those fact-witnesses who were prevented, by the White House, to speak under oath: “De-escalation”- Pompeo; “Get over it”- Mulvaney; “Notepad-Never …

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — November 11, 2019 — It is instructive and appalling to listen to the whining of billionaires as their power and greed are challenged by Elizabeth Warren. They are adding daily to a long history of tone-deaf and politically inept responses to real economic populism. We’re headed back in time to when the super rich were politically …
