Trump staffers fleeing over disorganization and infighting: report

Published

on

According to a report from Bloomberg, employees working for the government office tasked with overseeing economic sanctions imposed by President Donald Trump’s administration are fleeing to greener pastures due to mismanagement and office infighting.

The report states that the Office of Foreign Assets Control has seen turnover at a time when Trump “has nearly doubled the number of people and companies under U.S. sanctions.”

While some are accepting jobs on Wall Street — which increasingly needs expertise on the president’s seemingly arbitrary economic policies — others say the office is being mismanaged under department head Sigal Mandelker.

According to the report, “some who have left also blame Mandelker, 47, the undersecretary for Treasury’s Terrorism and Financial Intelligence unit, or TFI, which is composed of four offices, including OFAC.”

“While they say Mandelker is smart and well-versed, people familiar with her work also call her disorganized, indecisive and short-tempered and say she has embroiled her staff in feuds with a deputy, Marshall Billingslea,” the report continues.

According to Bloomberg, more than 20 staffers — who asked to remain anonymous — claim, “Mandelker’s poor leadership has hurt morale across the units she oversees.”

The report notes that the office “has the power to freeze billions of dollars in assets, blacklist individuals and companies from participating in the U.S. economy and punish violations.”

Published

on

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
