July 14, 2019 — This week started with a sexual predator scandal involving Donald Trump and ended with Vice President Mike Pence and Republican senators touring a detainment camp for migrants, and both were unseemly and embarrassing.
Between the Lights for Liberty protests across the nation and Alex Acosta’s departure as labor secretary after outrage grew over his connection to the legal case of sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein, this summer hardly seems low-key. Need more examples of that? Look no further than Robert S. Mueller’s upcoming testimony (now set for July 24) before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, unsettling news of an investigation into the Trump Organization and a bizarre social media campaign involving Area 51 in Nevada.
