Mother Jones – The Trump Files
In 2012 Mother Jones uncovered Mitt Romney’s 47 percent video. Now, in 2016, their election team is back with coverage that would make any opposition researcher jealous. The magazine’s Trump Files project digs deep into the GOP nominee’s background, providing you with the resources and facts that will help you win the water cooler.
So far the magazine has produced 40 installments of this feature, including “When Donald Destroyed Historic Art to Build Trump Tower,” “How Donald Tricked New York Into Giving Him His First Huge Deal,” and “Donald Tried to Shut Down a Bike Race Named ‘Rump.’”
