If He Loses, Trump Must Resign Immediately and Make Biden President. No, Really.
Alex Wong/GettyIf and when Donald Trump leaves office, whether now or the day after the election, it should be by resignation. We cannot and should not wait until Inauguration Day, January 20, 2021, for him to vacate the White House. His departure has become a matter of national emergency, national safety, and now national security.

The polls show Trump losing by large margins to Joe Biden if the election were held today. His nearly catastrophic handling of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in tens of thousands of unnecessary infections and deaths.

And things are getting worse following the premature reopening of states, something Trump insisted upon. He wears no face coverings, despite the recommendations of his own task force. He holds mass rallies in violation of local health regulations and recommendations.

Trump Commutes Roger Stone's Sentence Days Before Prison
Leah Millis/ReutersRoger Stone, a longtime Trump confidant convicted of lying to Congress about his connection to WikiLeaks and intimidating another witness to do the same, had his sentence commuted by President Trump on Friday—just a few days before he was set to report to jail.

President Trump had raised the possibility of clemency almost immediately after Stone, 67, was convicted last November, often complaining—without evidence—that Stone had been treated poorly by law enforcement or targeted unfairly.

In a statement announcing Stone's clemency, the White House described Stone as "a victim of the Russia Hoax that the Left and its allies in the media perpetuated for years in an attempt to undermine the Trump Presidency."

Trump's Top COVID Adviser: Deaths Will Soon Start to Rise
REUTERSDr. Deborah Birx, the coordinator of the White House coronavirus task force, said on Friday that she expected to soon see an increase in mortalities among Americans infected with the virus—a statement placing her at odds with the president, who has touted a falling death rate as a sign of success in his approach to the virus. 

"In the United States we have an increase in the number of cases over the last particularly three weeks," Birx said during a virtual COVID19 conference. "We have not seen this result in increased mortality but that is expected as the disease continues to spread in some of our large metro areas."

Brix's remarks come as multiple different states across the south and southwestern part of the country scramble to contain new outbreaks where case numbers, positivity rates, hospitalizations and deaths are steadily increasing. Three states—California, Texas and Florida—this week recorded their highest daily death tolls since the pandemic began. According to Birx's presentation on Friday, four states accounted for 50 percent of new cases "with unfortunately increases in deaths." The daily case numbers, her slides read, have increased so rapidly in 154 communities that they triggered an "emergency country alert."

"House of Absolute Horrors": Mary Trump's Book Reveals How Trump Family Gave Rise to a "Sociopath"
In a new book, Mary Trump — the president's niece — describes Donald Trump as a "sociopath" who grew up in a dysfunctional family that fostered his greed and cruelty. Donald Trump's younger brother, Robert, is seeking to block the sale of the book on the grounds that it violates a confidentiality agreement, but publisher Simon & Schuster says 600,000 copies of the book have already been distributed ahead of its July 14 publishing date. Investigative journalist David Cay Johnston, who has reported on Trump for three decades, says the book is "very, very important" and helps to answer how Trump got to the White House.
