Top Donald Trump aides helped oust Richard Nixon’s son-in-law from a top Republican Party post, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

“In New York, where Mr. Trump was born, raised and ruminated for years about a political campaign of his own, the state Republican Party had a leadership change on Monday, moving from the genteel leadership of Edward F. Cox, the son-in-law of President Richard M. Nixon, to the grass-roots style of Nick Langworthy, of Erie County,” the newspaper noted.

“The former White House political director, Bill Stepien, was in regular contact with Mr. Langworthy, the chairman of the Erie County Republican Party, since December, as Mr. Langworthy worked to amass enough support to overtake Mr. Cox,” The Times explained, based on officials briefed on the discussions.

“In recent weeks, one of Mr. Trump’s White House aides, Dan Scavino, the digital director who is from Dutchess County, spoke with a local Republican official there, conveying that the president ‘likes’ Mr. Cox, but couldn’t understand why the party lost control of the State Senate last year, according to one person familiar with the discussion,” The Times explained.

"It took us eight months to get one court decision," Schiff said, referring to the court decision that former White House counsel Don McGahn does not have absolute right to avoid testifying before Congress.

From the outset, Attorney General William Barr attacked the findings of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz debunking GOP conspiracy theories about the FBI "spying" on President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign. But he was also joined by U.S. Attorney John Durham, a longtime career official in the Justice Department whom Barr had tapped to run a parallel investigation — even though Durham, according to recent reports, cannot find criminal misconduct to charge.

“Nobody can figure out who the eff she is or how she got in there,” a friend of Giuliani told the website's Daniel Lippman.
