Dan Diamond reports in Politico that religious activists are on the rise inside HHS. He writes that several high-level positions have been filled by Christian conservatives who have spent months quietly planning how to weaken federal protections for abortion and transgender care, a strategy that's taking shape in a series of policy moves that took even their own staff by surprise.
​Politico reporter Dan Diamond says dysfunction within the White House, infighting and the need to flatter Trump have caused distractions that have slowed the response to the new pandemic.​
Dan Diamond, who covers the Dept. of Health and Human Services for 'Politico,' says the number of HHS leaders who previously worked in the anti-abortion and anti-LGBTQ movement is "unusual and notable." Also, Justin Chang reviews 'Lover for a Day.'
