Book claims Trump ordered John Kelly to fire Ivanka and Jared for him: ‘Get them back to New York!’

Published

A new book claims that President Donald Trump directed former chief of staff John Kelly to fire the president’s own daughter and son-in-law shortly after he replaced Reince Priebus in 2017.

The New York Times reports that a new book called “Kushner, Inc., which was written by journalist Vicky Ward, claims that Trump wanted Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner out of the White House because they “didn’t know how to play the game” of politics and kept generating negative headlines for his administration.

“Get rid of my kids,” Trump reportedly told Kelly. “Get them back to New York!”

Kelly, however, responded that it would be difficult for him to force Jared and Ivanka to give up their positions in the White House without Trump’s explicitly telling them he wanted them out.

The pair have since outlasted Kelly and have remained in the White House months after he resigned last December. This has not stopped Trump from going back and forth about whether he wants the two of them in his administration, however, and the Times describes his desire to see them leave as having “come and gone in waves.”

On Thursday, during one of the final scheduled impeachment hearings this week, National Security Council official Fiona Hill demolished President Donald Trump's conspiracy theory that Ukraine, rather than Russia, meddled in the 2016 election, calling it a "fictional narrative" and noting that it originated with the Kremlin itself.

But in conversation with reporters, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) flatly disbelieved Hill's testimony, and insisted he still held onto the theory.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told me that he was not going to lose any GOP votes during impeachment.

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace on Thursday highlighted one of the key moments from the impeachment inquiry testimony from Dr. Fiona Hill.

"Often when women show anger, it’s not fully appreciated. It’s often, you know, pushed onto emotional issues perhaps, or deflected on other people," Hill testified.

Here's Fiona Hill on why she thinks Sondland misunderstood her anger — and how women's anger is often viewed, more generally: "It's not fully appreciated. It's often pushed off onto emotional issues." pic.twitter.com/AsMR3A9InI

Mulvaney lawyer denies Mick was ‘so heavily involved’ — despite his White House briefing room confession

Published

on

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney was referenced multiple times during Dr. Fiona Hill's testimony Thursday, but Mulvaney's lawyer said he doesn't understand why.

"We have no idea why Ms. Hill believes Mr. Mulvaney was so heavily involved, especially in light of Ambassador Sondland’s contrary testimony," said Fox News reporter Chad Pergram, quoting a statement from Robert Driscoll.

As former federal prosecutor Joyce Vance pointed out, Hill recalled during her testimony how angry she was about Sondland not briefing her. She said that after hearing his testimony Wednesday and learning he was briefing Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, Mulvaney and President Donald Trump. She then decided he was correct-they had separate missions and Sondland was on a domestic political errand.
