Multiple White House employees — including one Melania aide — fired over security clearance issues: report

Published

on

The White House has either fired or reassigned multiple employees over problems with their security clearances, according to ABC News.

According to ABC News’ sources, the list of fired or reassigned employees includes “at least one individual employed in the Office of the First Lady,” although the report does not go into detail about exactly whom has been let go.

In addition to the staffers that have already been fired, ABC News’ sources say that there is “a list of several other individuals with security clearance issues that are under consideration for possible termination or reassignment in the coming days.”

White House chief of staff John Kelly has reportedly been making lists of White House employees with security clearance problems in the wake of the debacle surrounding former staff secretary Rob Porter, who was fired last month after it was revealed that he allegedly beat his two ex-wives.

Kelly has also downgraded the security clearance of Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, who can now no longer access top-secret classified information. Despite this, however, the president still sent Kushner to meet with Mexican officials as a diplomatic envoy on Wednesday.

"Those Tweets were NOT Racist," Trump insisted. "I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show 'weakness' and fall into their trap."

Published

Republican strategist Rick Wilson has penned a scathing column for the Daily Beast in which he dismantles President Donald Trump for telling four Democratic women of color to "go back" to their countries of origin, even though three of them were born in the United States.

Wilson begins his column by arguing that Trump has shown what happens when someone who is "devoted to political and racial arson" and is "beyond shame, reason, and dignity" gets elected to the most powerful office in the United States.

Trump’s team blowing off racist furor because they know the GOP is afraid to do anything about it: report

Published

on

According to a report at the Daily Beast, officials running Donald Trump's re-election campaign are keeping their heads down and plowing ahead with their work as the country is consumed with the president's burst of racist comments because they believe it will blow over.

The reason? Because Republicans will refuse to condemn the president -- which is being borne out in real-time -- and it's just another day at the office where the president wildly tweets outrageous comments that are superseded by new comments that consume the public's attention.
