After his infamous North Korean summit, President Donald Trump congratulated himself on Twitter and told Americans to rest well because all is right in the world.

“Just landed – a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong-un was an interesting, and a very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!” President Trump tweeted.

CNN’s Jake Tapper said his tweet was far from the truth. Tapper asserted that President Trump was overcompensating for the summit, and lacked a basic understanding of U.S. relations with North Korea.

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.
