While conservatives purport to defend the First Amendment, they have been largely silent in the face of President Trump’s attacks on free speech, argues Eliza Newlin Carney in the American Prospect.
The Department of Justice has filed a statement of interest in support of two conservative groups that sued the University of California-Berkeley over alleged limits on their ability to host events (Washington Post).
Common Cause, a non-profit watchdog group, has filed a complaint alleging that the settlement paid to Stormy Daniels by President Trump amounted to an unreported in-kind contribution to President Trump’s campaign (WaPo).
Charlie Kushner, Jared Kushner’s father, has said that he is unconcerned about the investigation into his company (WaPo).
The Trump administration has violated both political norms and constitutional conventions, writes Neil Siegel at Balkinization.
