Is James Comey’s book tour counterproductive? 5 MIN, 22 SEC

In “A Higher Loyalty,” fired FBI Director Comey says Donald Trump is “morally unfit” for the presidency. Now, during 24/7 news coverage of his best-seller, Comey’s created a backlash. Even supporters say his claims of moral superiority make him an easy target for a president who’s gifted at public relations if not public service?

Is Scott Pruitt really changing the environment? 36 MIN, 1 SEC

EPA Director Scott Pruitt is the latest Trump Cabinet member to face ethics charges. He’s also trying to undo as many regulations on industries as he can. His Obama-era predecessor, Gina McCarthy, tells us he’s not up to that job, but she still insists that damage is being done. Will Pruitt’s legacy be an EPA that’s not equipped to live up to its mission: protecting the environment and public health?
