Trump lashes out after Paul Ryan tells GOP House members to flee his candidacy

Published

On a conference call with fellow Republicans on Monday, House Speaker Paul Ryan said that he would stop defending Donald Trump and would instead work on preserving his party’s congressional majority.

As you might expect, a wounded Donald Trump wasn’t happy about it — and he wasted no time lashing out at Ryan on Twitter.

“Paul Ryan should spend more time on balancing the budget, jobs and illegal immigration and not waste his time on fighting Republican nominee,” Trump wrote shortly after news broke that Ryan gave his troops permission to run for the hills.

At any rate, it seems as though the tensions between Trump and the party have now blown wide open with only a month to go before the election. That Ryan would alienate his own party’s presidential nominee indicates that he believes control of the House could be at risk if the entire party clings to Trump as its standard bearer.

Bill Barr quietly pulls off a shake-up in a federal prosecutor’s office — but why?

Published

on

Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt last month to push U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman out of his position at the Southern District of New York blew up in his face. While Berman was ousted, Barr didn’t get the replacement he wanted, and House Democrats are now investigating.

But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
