The Real Reason New York's Attorney General Went After the NRA
Peter Foley/Bloomberg via Getty ImagesNew York Attorney General Letitia James may be able to do what no politician before her has been able to accomplish - take down the National Rifle Association. 

Her lawsuit alleging self-dealing and misconduct could, if successful, dissolve the entire organization. While the suit is civil in nature, it reads like an old-fashioned corruption indictment. 

It alleges that the not-for profit organization violated New York state laws governing charities by diverting tens of millions of dollars away from the organization's mission for the personal benefit of its leaders, with Wayne LaPierre, the NRA's Executive Vice President for the past 29 years, and three other officers named as defendants along with the organization itself. According to the complaint, LaPierre used NRA funds for eight private plane flights to the Bahamas, where they enjoyed life on the 107-foot yacht of an NRA vendor, as well as for safaris in Africa and elsewhere. The complaint also claims that LaPierre allotted millions of dollars for private security for himself without sufficient oversight (and cited "security" concerns to explain why he didn't disclose those trips to the NRA's board), that he  spent $1.2 million of the group's funds on gifts from Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman for favored friends and vendors, and that he negotiated a post-employment contract for himself valued at $17 million without board approval.

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/GettyAs it's become clear that rapper Kanye West's 2020 campaign is getting boosted by longtime GOP operatives, figures close to Donald Trump's campaign and even the president himself have seemingly been delighted at the potential to "ratfuck" and spoil the election for Joe Biden. 

But it's not all champagne popping in Trumpworld. Some Trump advisers have privately conceded that there is scant data to suggest that getting West on enough ballots would drain significant support from the presumptive 2020 Democratic nominee, and that doing so amounts to taking advantage of a man suffering from mental health issues. And even the president's own pollster is warning that the maneuver could backfire.

"[It] could siphon from Trump Blacks who don't like Biden," John McLaughlin, a top pollster for President Trump, told The Daily Beast on Wednesday night. "Blacks who don't like Biden in a two-way race would vote for the president. Now they might consider Kanye."

CNN's Brianna Keilar Comes at Trump Campaign's Mercedes Schlapp for Falsely Smearing Her Military Husband
Trump campaign adviser Mercedes Schlapp attempted to clean up her disastrous interview with CNN's Brianna Keilar by penning an op-ed about the network's supposed "dishonesty" for the website RealClearPolitics. But she made at least one major mistake.

As The New York Times' Maggie Haberman—channeling The Princess Bride's Inigo Montoya—put it in a tweet, "I don't think Brianna Keilar's husband is who ?@mercedesschlapp? appears to think he is when she slams him in this piece." 

In that piece, Schlapp wrote that she was "disturbed to learn that Brianna Keilar's husband is a ferocious opponent of the president, a former director of the National Security Council under President Obama, and a man who tweets, among other things, that Donald Trump makes him ‘throw up.'"
