Trump forced to storm Florida for votes after Andrew Gillum humiliates his personally endorsed candidate

Published

on

Polls show that Democrat Andrew Gillum has regularly maintained a lead over Trump-endorsed rival Ron DeSantis in the race to become Florida’s next governor — and President Donald Trump is now reportedly worried.

Mac Stipanovich, a longtime Florida GOP lobbyist, tells Politico that Trump’s reelection chances in the state could take a big hit with a charismatic Democratic governor stumping for the Democratic presidential nominee in 2020.

In addition to Trump visiting the state twice, the White House has also reportedly been mulling “blanketing” the state with Trump robo-calls and sending presidential text messages to voters who haven’t yet mailed in their absentee ballots.

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.
