    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, expressed 'disappointment' that Americans are more interested in their iPhones than the Constitution, a new book claims. The George HW Bush nominee to the highest court bemoaned the lack of engagement in law and politics among the US public. The judge was interviewed by Michael Pack for more than 30 hours between November 2017 and March 2018 for the book Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words, co-edited by Mark Paoletta. Thomas said: 'I think we as citizens have lost interest and that's been my disappointment.  'That certainly was something that bothered Justice Scalia, that people tend to be more interested in their iPhones than their Constitution. They're interested in what they want rather than what is right as a country.' Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas previously expressed 'disappointment' that Americans are more interested in their iPhones than the Constitution Pack asked Thomas if this lack of interest was a 'burden for the Supreme Court'. He replied, according to Insider: 'No, it's a burden on them, the citizens. They're going...
    Jared Kushner lost Donald Trump the White House and presided over a 'wonky mishmash' of a campaign that cost him nearly $2billion and the presidency. This is Kellyanne Conway's takeaway set down in her new memoir, Here's the Deal. In the book, seen early by DailyMail.com, Conway, 55, not only eviscerates the former presidential son-in-law, she accuses him of trying to 'rewrite history' by claiming credit for Trump's 2016 win which, she says, was all her. 'I was the one,' the pollster-turned-presidential counselor writes, 'to develop a "secret sauce," to beat a woman for president and help lead Donald Trump in the Oval office,' she writes referencing Trump's 2016 victory over Hillary Clinton. Should there be any doubt about just who won Trump his seat, Conway takes care to quote the gratitude of others, such as Trump's Vice President Mike Pence who, in the chaotic aftermath of Trump's sensational victory, she recalls, sat down next to Conway and said: 'Kellyanne…none of us would be here without you.' Kellyanne Conway holds no punches regarding her apparent disdain for former fellow Trump staffer Jared...
    Former Defense Secretary Mark Esper says in his new book that then-President Donald Trump asked him in 2020 about launching missiles into Mexico to "destroy the drug labs" and kill cartels, The New York Times reported Thursday."We could just shoot some Patriot missiles and take out the labs, quietly," Trump suggested, according to the upcoming book "A Sacred Oath," the Times reported. The former President reasoned that Mexico didn't "have control" over its own country and that "no one would know it was us," Esper -- who objected at the time -- recounted, according to the Times.The exchange is one of several stunning discussions detailed in Esper's book, which will be published on Tuesday, the newspaper reported. While Esper writes that Trump's behavior never became erratic enough to justify an invocation of the 25th Amendment, the book describes a chaotic White House focused almost entirely on Trump's reelection bid.A spokesperson for Trump did not immediately respond to the Times' request for comment.Esper broke with Trump at various times as defense secretary, including over the then-President's plans to withdraw all US...

    (CNN)Former Defense Secretary Mark Esper says in his new book that then-President Donald Trump raised the idea of shooting protesters who took to the streets around the White House after the killing of Georgia Floyd in 2020, according to Axios. "Can't you just shoot them? Just shoot them in the legs or something?" Trump asked, according to an excerpt in Esper's book "A Sacred Oath," Axios reported.A representative for Trump did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment.CNN has previously reported similar accounts, including those documented by journalist Michael Bender in his own book titled "Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost."Last year, Bender's book revealed new details about how Trump repeatedly called for law enforcement to shoot protesters during Oval Office meetings.

    Sen. Kyrsten Sinema has confounded Democrats over budget talks – even while boasting about using her cleavage to reel in 'uptight' Republicans, according to a new book. Sinema, a weight-lifter and fitness buff, regularly draws attention in the buttoned-down Senate hallways with her eclectic fashion choices.  But she has also developed ways to contend with Republicans in the minority, according to This Will Not Pass, a new book by New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns. Despite being more 'discomfiting' to the White House than any Democrat in the 50-50 Senate, Sinema had relationships across the political aisle. The former House member, who is the first bisexual member of the Senate, 'joked with Democrats about how easy it was for her to charm Republican men,' according to the book. 'Sinema, a fitness enthusiast who was 36 when she entered Congress, boasted knowingly to colleagues and aides that her cleavage had an extraordinary persuasive effect on the uptight men of the GOP. She told one House Republican that while she would never switch parties, her father would be delighted...
    President Joe Biden once branded Rupert Murdoch 'the most dangerous man in the world', a new book has claimed. The Democrat, 79, also allegedly labeled Fox News 'one of the most destructive forces in the United States'. The claims were made in the forthcoming book This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America's Future, by New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns. Biden made the comments to an unnamed associate in mid-2021 during the early months of his presidency, CNN reports.  The Australian media mogul, 91, is the founder and owner of the Fox Corporation, which runs Fox News, and his son Lachlan is the company's CEO. The book claims Fox is a 'torrent of anti-Biden programming, stoking skepticism about vaccines and disseminating wild conspiracy theories about the January 6 attack.'

    In January 2015, Deflategate exploded from a quiet league investigation into a nationwide story thanks to an erroneous ESPN report claiming 11 of the 12 footballs the Patriots used in the AFC Championship Game were underinflated by at least two pounds. The report was later debunked, but it nonetheless sparked an immediate wildfire of controversy that enveloped the Patriots and later the league. The NFL levied unprecedented punishments against the team and Tom Brady for allegedly deflating game footballs, despite the fact that, following the Ideal Gas Law, the air pressure inside the balls would naturally decrease during games played in cold weather. According to a released excerpt of an upcoming book, “Playmakers: How the NFL Really Works (And Doesn’t),” NFL executive V.P. of football operations Troy Vincent leaked that initial misinformation to ESPN. The book, written by NBC Sports’ Mike Florio, doesn’t state whether Vincent knowingly lied to ESPN. It does, however, provide more evidence that league sought to punish the Patriots instead of conducting an honest and scientific investigation. Because the following season, the...
    Former Trump national security advisor Mike Flynn tried to enlist a high-level Pentagon official and former aide to assist in the president's overturn effort – promising an 'epic showdown.'  Flynn, who had received a pardon from Trump following a legal battle after initially pleading guilty of lying to the FBI in the Russia probe, sounded manic when he dialed DOD official Ezra Cohen, according to journalist Jonathan Karl's new book. 'He didn't sound like the same guy he had worked for,' Karl writes in reference to Cohen, who also sometimes goes by Ezra Cohen-Watnick.  Cohen had been promoted to acting undersecretary of Defense for intelligence and security a week after the election, on Nov. 10, 2020, along with other Trump loyalists following Trump's firing of Defense Secretary Mark Esper. But he wasn't convinced by Flynn's call to to seize ballots. Michael Flynn, second from left, former national security adviser to former President Donald Trump, phoned Pentagon official Ezra Cohen-Watnick to tell him 'ballots needed to be seized' after the presidential election, according to a new book Flynn phoned Cohen after the...
    Donald Trump wanted to probe a conspiracy that Nest thermostats were used to meddle in the 2020 election and bragged about the crowd size of the January 6 Capitol riot, details from a new book revealed on Sunday. As the attack on the U.S. Capitol building ensued earlier this year, sources claim that Trump was pleased with what was happening, boasted about how many people turned out and argued when pushed to tell supporters to stop rioting, according to ABC News host Jonathan Karls' upcoming book 'Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show'. Karl revealed details from his book on ABC This Week on Sunday morning, claiming that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called Trump to ask him to tell the rioters to leave the Capitol on January 6.  He said that a source familiar with the call told him that McCarthy pleaded with Trump: 'I just got evacuated from the Capitol! There were shots fired right off the House floor. You need to make this stop.' 'They are just more upset than you because they believe it more...
    (CBS) – A new book is causing shockwaves through the NFL with a behind-the-scenes look at the New England Patriots’ dynasty. Within the pages of It’s Better To Be Feared: The New England Patriots Dynasty And The Pursuit Of Greatness, author Seth Wickersham shares the story of a heated exchange between then-New York Jets head coach Eric Mangini and Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick. An excerpt from Wickersham’s book details the event which took place at dinner during the league’s 2008 meetings. READ MORE: Details Of Deteriorating Relationship Between Tom Brady, Bill Belichick Emerge In Excerpts From Seth Wickersham’s Patriots Book“At the 2008 league meetings, Belichick and then-New York Jets head coach Eric Mangini nearly had a fistfight. After a dinner for head coaches, Julie Mangini, wife of Eric, bumped into Belichick and said hi, trying to ease tension after the post-Spygate fallout. Belichick blew her off, and when she told Eric what had happened, he charged across the room and needed to be held back by other coaches from swinging at Belichick. ‘Hey Bill, F– you!’ Mangini yelled.” Going...
    Former President Trump was irate when TikTokers pulled a prank on him that left thousands of empty seats at his rally in Oklahoma, calling the event the 'biggest f***ing mistake.'   'I shouldn't have ever done that f***ing, f***ing rally,' Trump said at an Oval Office meeting in July 2020, after the rally, according to 'Peril,' a forthcoming tell-all from  The Washington Post's Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.  The book also claims Trump called Brad Parscale a 'f***ing moron.' One month later he fired the campaign manager. The Oklahoma excerpt was first reported by Insider.  The June 8, 2020 rally was supposed to be the former president's post-Covid comeback  to the campaign trail, but was filled empty seats after TikTokers and K-pop fans claimed to have reserved hundreds of tickets with no intention of showing up.  'Landslide' by Michael Wolff previously reported a similar Oval Office tantrum from Trump following the rally, which Parcale denied.  'How can you be so stupid? Answer me!,' Trump told Parscale, according to Wolff's book.  'The excerpts from Wolfe’s Trump book are complete bulls***. No one...
    Ivanka Trump told her father, then-President Donald Trump, to stop pedaling election fraud claims as he watched the Capitol riot unfold on TV, according to a new book. 'Let this thing go,' Trump's eldest daughter and then-senior adviser said at the time. 'Let it go.' The book 'Peril' also detailed that retired General Keith Kellogg, who was serving as Vice President Mike Pence's national security adviser at the time, told Trump he should send a 'tweet' to help calm the crowd at the Capitol on January 6. 'You really should do a tweet,' Kellogg said, according to the book, written by journalist and author Bob Woodward and veteran Washington Post reporter Robert Costa. 'You need to get a tweet out real quick, help control the crowd up there,' he said as Trump watched the attack happening on television. 'This is out of control. They're not going to be able to control this. Sir, they're not prepared for it. Once a mob starts turning like that, you've lost it.' Ivanka Trump, pictured January 4, 2021, told her father Donald Trump...
    Washington (CNN)In their new book "Peril," journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa explore the opening months of Joe Biden's presidency, including how Biden was hellbent not to let the military stop him from withdrawing from Afghanistan and how Donald Trump's shadow hangs over the Biden presidency. The book explores Biden's determination to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan despite resistance from top advisers. Biden was resolute on getting US troops out, having wrestled with the issue for nearly 20 years -- and having watched, as vice president, military and national security leaders box in then-President Barack Obama in his first year when he wanted to end the US war in Afghanistan. Biden believed the military manipulated Obama. "The military doesn't fuck around with me," Biden told others in 2009, implying they had with Obama, according to the book.

    Drew Angerer/Getty Joint Chiefs Chairman General Mark Milley became so concerned that outgoing President Donald Trump would go “rogue” that he took steps to prevent him from launching nuclear weapons, according to a new and forthcoming book from Bob Woodward. Woodward is, of course, the award-winning author of many behind-the-scenes books about many presidents, and his new book (co-written by Washington Post colleague Robert Costa), Peril, is an account of the final days of the Trump administration. First reported by CNN, Woodward and Costa report that Milley took “top-secret action to limit Trump from potentially ordering a dangerous military strike or launching nuclear weapons.” CNN reports: Woodward and Costa write that Milley, deeply shaken by the assault, ‘was certain that Trump had gone into a serious mental decline in the aftermath of the election, with Trump now all but manic, screaming at officials and constructing his own alternate reality about endless election conspiracies.’ Milley worried that Trump could ‘go rogue,’ the authors write. “You never know what a president’s trigger point is,” Milley told his senior staff, according to the book....
    President Biden's younger brother Jim and son Hunter are accused of using his union ties to land clients when they ran an investment firm, according to a new book, including firefighters who would arrive with checks claiming to be 'friends of Joe.' It describes how they used the then senator's name to drum up business for Paradigm Global Advisors, which they ran in the mid-2000s 'Don’t worry about investors, ' Jim Biden reportedly told staff on his first day at the company. 'We’ve got people all around the world who want to invest in Joe Biden.'    The story of their time at Paradigm Global Advisors is told by Ben Schreckinger in 'The Bidens: Inside the First Family's Fifty-Year Rise to Power.'  It includes allegations of Hunter's drug use at the time and sets out how they used the family name in their business dealings. 'Jim’s job,' one of his former business partners told Schreckinger, “is to ensure the lifestyle is good for the family.”  Lawyers for the two men dispute many of the alleged conversations in the book and they are not...
    Barack Obama misled the country about ending the war in Afghanistan, according to a scathing new book charting 20 years of U.S. involvement in the country. Craig Whitlock, author of The Afghanistan Papers, said that Obama was deeply misguided when, in December 2014, he declared that the war was over. He said that the 'baldfaced' declaration ranked as 'among the most egregious deceptions and lies that U.S. leaders spread during two decades of warfare.'  Whitlock writes that Obama's address even felt hollow at the time - the statement was delivered from Hawaii, while the then-president relaxed on vacation, and the ceremony was held in a gymnasium, where several dozen people sat on folding chairs.  Obama said that U.S. forces would from then on only be acting in an advisory capacity, and leave the combat roles to Afghan national security forces. But Whitlock points out that, in reality, the U.S. fighting barely dimmed. Barack Obama is pictured in October 2015 making a statement on Afghanistan, and announcing that troops would remain in the country after he left office - despite his declaration...

    WASHINGTON -- The top US military officer, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Mark Milley, was so shaken that then-President Donald Trump and his allies might attempt a coup or take other dangerous or illegal measures after the November election that Milley and other top officials informally planned for different ways to stop Trump, according to excerpts of an upcoming book obtained by CNN.The book, from Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker, describes how Milley and the other Joint Chiefs discussed a plan to resign, one-by-one, rather than carry out orders from Trump that they considered to be illegal, dangerous or ill-advised."It was a kind of Saturday Night Massacre in reverse," Leonnig and Rucker write.The book, "I Alone Can Fix It," scheduled to be released next Tuesday, chronicles Trump's final year as president, with a behind-the-scenes look at how senior administration officials and Trump's inner circle navigated his increasingly unhinged behavior after losing the 2020 election.

    Photo via Mandel Ngan/AFP via Getty Images) A new excerpt of the upcoming book from Wall Street Journal’s Michael Bender claims former President Donald Trump shocked his then-White House Chief of Staff John Kelly by saying Adolf Hitler “did a lot of good things.” Bender’s book, Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story Of How Trump Lost, has generated a great deal of media attention lately with its shocking revelations about the former president’s time in office. The Guardian obtained an early copy of the book, and they report that Trump stunned Kelly by praising the Nazi dictator during a trip to France in 2018 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. Bender’s book claims Trump made his comments while Kelly was reminding him “which countries were on which side during the conflict” and Kelly “connected the dots from the first world war to the second world war and all of Hitler’s atrocities.” It was in the middle of this conversation when Trump allegedly said “Well, Hitler did a lot of good things.”...
    An upcoming book on the 2020 election reveals that Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) and his office fought the White House’s attempts to have him shower praise on former President Donald Trump during the 2020 Republican National Convention. Wall Street Journal Senior White House reporter Mike Bender is scheduled to release his new book in August titled Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story Of How Trump Lost. The title is a reference to Trump’s false claims that he actually prevailed in the 2020 election.

    Bill Barr said that even while the Justice Department investigated Donald Trump's voter fraud claims, he always knew it was 'all bulls**t', according to an upcoming book. Trump's former attorney general told Axios' Jonathan Karl in interviews published in The Atlantic Sunday, that he concluded early on when declaring the investigation that it was highly unlikely that any evidence existed that would change that outcome of the 2020 election. 'My attitude was: It was put-up or shut-up time,' Barr told Karl. 'If there was evidence of fraud, I had no motive to suppress it.' 'But my suspicion all the way along was that there was nothing there. It was all bulls**t.' Karl revealed this excerpt and others from multiple interviews with Barr conducted as part of his upcoming book. Barr said he opened an investigation because he knew former Trump was going to confront him about his claims of fraud and a 'rigged' election, and he wanted to be able to say he looked into it and found nothing. Former Attorney General Bill Barr said that he knew from...

    Former President Donald Trump reportedly lost it when he learned that President Joe Biden was beating him in polls leading up to the 2020 presidential election.

    Former President Trump wanted to publicly question Dr. Anthony Fauci about American funding of the Wuhan laboratory suspected of leaking COVID-19 but was talked out of setting up a presidential commission by aides, according to a forthcoming book. An executive order had been drafted in order to hold China to account and bill Beijing for reparations. Details emerged Saturday amid fresh question about who knew what and when in the federal government about the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic. Trump was 'enthusiastic' about setting up a commission along the lines of those that investigated the 9/11 attacks and the JFK assassination, according to What Really Happened in Wuhan, by Sharri Markson, due to be published in September by HarperCollins. And, excerpts published by the New York Post, reveal that officials suspected China developed a vaccine for COVID-19 before the outbreak. “It may seem likely that the Wuhan Institute of Virology has been researching a vaccine before the outbreak,” a State Department analysis authored by Miles Yu, a China adviser to former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

In Susan Page’s new book, “Madam Speaker: Nancy Pelosi and the Lessons of Power”, the author claims that Pelosi planned on retiring after thirty years in Congress but Trump’s victory encouraged her to remain in politics, according to USA Today.

    Before there was Anna Delvey, there was fake heiress Cassie Chadwick. Though separated by more than a century, the two scammers who lived lavishly had much in common. Both spun schemes of nonexistent ties to wealth that duped people and deceived banks and businesses. Both ended up serving time for their crimes. And both captured the press and public's attention: Delvey's tale soon will be a Netflix show and Chadwick's name was emblazoned on fake money and tonics. Indeed, Chadwick was so well-known during her time that con artists – especially women – that came after her were known as 'Cassies,' according to a new book. And while Russian native Anna Sorokin achieved her Manhattan glitterati moment in the sun by passing herself off as a German rich kid that oozed $100 bills, Canadian-born Chadwick boldly sparked the rumor that she was the illegitimate daughter of one of the world's richest men, Andrew Carnegie. She then forged the steel magnate's signature to borrow money from Ohio banks and others. Chadwick is believed to have netted at least $633,000 in the early...
    Timothy Clary/Getty Images A new book written by former Deputy Campaign Manager Rick Gates reveals that President Donald Trump initially suggested his daughter Ivanka Trump be named as his Vice Presidential running mate, and was so into the idea that it was “polled twice.” Gates worked as deputy to then-campaign manager Paul Manafort and took a different approach to federal investigations into the possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian election interference, by cutting a deal and cooperating, whereas Manafort did not and has served time. His new book, Wicked Game: An Insider’s Story on How Trump Won, Mueller Failed, and America Lost, is set to be released on October 13, and according to a report by The Washington Post, Ivanka was initially at the top of her father’s list for Vice President. According to the report: “I think it should be Ivanka. What about Ivanka as my VP?” Trump asked the assembled group, according to a new book by his former deputy campaign manager Rick Gates set to be published Oct. 13. Trump added: “She’s bright, she’s smart,...

    Presidents Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump. Reuters President Donald Trump’s admiration of Vladimir Putin is down to the Russian president’s wealth and his running his country “like it was his personal company,” according to excerpts of a new memoir. The president’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, made the claims in his memoir coming out Tuesday, which were published by CNN and The Washington Post. Cohen, who described himself as Trump’s “fixer” and “designated thug,” said in the excerpts that he had spent years observing Trump’s behavior and motivations.  Cohen is serving a federal sentence for crimes, including lying to Congress. A White House spokesperson dismissed his credibility in a statement to The Post. Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories. President Donald Trump idolizes Vladimir Putin as a leader because he runs Russia like his own company, and because of his enormous riches, according to extracts of a new memoir. Michael Cohen, the president’s former lawyer and self-described “fixer,” made the claim in his book “Disloyal: A Memoir:...
    Donald Trump met with evangelical leaders at Trump Tower shortly after his election and, after they departed, allegedly told his 'fixer' Michael Cohen: 'Can you believe people believe that bulls***?' Cohen's new book, Disloyal, out on Tuesday, described the encounter. Evangelical voters were seen as key to Trump's victory, marshaled to a large extent by Trump's vice president, Mike Pence, a famously devout evangelical. About one in four American adults belong to an evangelical denomination, according to research by the Brookings Institute.  Trump was keen to court them, and yet, according to Cohen, was deeply disparaging behind their backs. Donald Trump is pictured with faith leaders inside the White House in February In the weeks he spent as president-elect, Trump met a series of people at Trump Tower Michael Flynn (left), Michael Cohen (center) and Rick Perry at Trump Tower in December 2016 Among the people Trump met were evangelicals, who he allegedly mocked once they left After a prayer meeting, when evangelical leaders laid their hands on him, Trump allegedly said: 'Can you believe that bulls***?...
