‘Oh f*ck!’ Trump’s plans to fire Comey accidentally revealed after White House printer mixup

Published

on

“Kushner, Inc.,” a new book about Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump has revealed more details about the chaos swirling around the White House when President Donald Trump decided to fire former FBI Director James Comey.

As Axios reports, the book claims that someone in the White House accidentally sent Trump’s letter firing Comey to the wrong printer, and it wound up in the hands of one of the aides to former economic adviser Gary Cohn.

Cohn then instructed the aide to bring the letter to White House counsel Don McGahn, who freaked out when he learned the letter had been sent to the wrong printer.

“Oh f*ck!” he exclaimed, according to the book.

“Kushner, Inc.,” which was written by journalist Vicky Ward, also claims that the president ordered former chief of staff John Kelly to fire his own daughter and son-in-law because they kept generating embarrassing 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.

White House will claim ‘absolute immunity’ in effort to block former top McGahn aide ahead from submitting testimony to House: report

Published

on

The Trump White House is expected to move to prevent former White House Deputy Counsel Annie Donaldson from giving written responses to questions from the House Judiciary Committee, Politico is reporting.

When she was working in the White House, Donaldson reported directly to former White House Counsel Don McGahn — which made her an important witness in former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. In May, the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerry Nadler, subpoenaed Donaldson to testify as part of its probe into whether or not President Donald Trump attempted to obstruct Mueller’s investigation.

Leaked testimony documents Kellyanne Conway’s ‘complete disregard’ for the law

Published

on

Newly leaked testimony from the chief of the White House’s Office of Special Counsel will justify calls for ousting White House counselor Kellyanne Conway by documenting her "complete disregard" for the law.

The Daily Beast reports that Henry Kerner, whom President Donald Trump appointed to lead the Office of Special Counsel, has submitted testimony to Congress in which he accuses Conway of going out of her way to knowingly flout the Hatch Act, which bars most executive branch employees from engaging in political activity.

"Her conduct hurts both federal employees, who may believe that senior officials can act with complete disregard for the Hatch Act, and the American people, who may question the nonpartisan operation of their government," Kerner's testimony states. "Ms. Conway’s conduct reflects not a misunderstanding of the law, but rather a disregard for it."

Here’s the single most disturbing revelation in the leaked Trump administration vetting documents

Published

on

The chaos that characterized the incoming Trump administration in late 2016 and early 2017 is vividly illustrated in a bombshell report by Axios, which has obtained an abundance of leaked vetting documents from the transition to the Trump administration. And the documents offer insights on everyone from Gen. David Petraeus to former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

The document on Petraeus shows the general in a positive light. Petraeus was considered for two different positions: secretary of state and national security adviser. But there was a red flag with Petraeus: the vetting document states, “Petraeus is opposed to torture” — which speaks well of him but evidently, was considered problematic by the transition team.
