The Presidential Daily Brief


  1. Sean Spicer, Turnarounds and Hate Crimes

    Know This: Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has been interviewed for Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential race. A British neo-Nazi who spent his life in the service of racist causes has denounced white supremacy and revealed that he is gay and Jewish, saying he’ll now devote his time to fighting discrimination. And a senior election official in Kenya has resigned and fled to the U.S. ahead of next week’s re-vote, saying the country’s unable to hold a credible election.

    Remember This Number: 80,393. That’s how many hate crimes were reported in the U.K. between March 2016 and March 2017, according to Britain’s Home Office — a nearly 30 percent jump that some experts attribute to rising racial animosity in the wake of the Brexit referendum.
