Revealed: The real reason Trump took off for presidential retreat at Camp David

Published

on

President Donald Trump took a hastily organized trip to Camp David, apparently to get away from some of his advisers and family members.

Some of his aides said the trip was a much-needed break from life in the White House, and officials declined to provide a readout of the president’s calls and activities, reported CNN.

No communications staffers joined Trump on the outing, which the president announced Saturday on his Twitter account.

Trump visited the Maryland presidential retreat without his family, the vice president or any senior policy aides, as he usually has done when visiting Camp David.

Only a handful of junior staffers, including social media director Dan Scavino, joined him this weekend.

Trump insisted that multiple Iran meetings were on his agenda, his national security adviser John Bolton was in Jerusalem and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was preparing for a trip to Brussels.

“We’re going to have meetings and a lot of work,” Trump told reporters, before leaving. “We have a series of meetings, and, more importantly, a series of very well connected phone calls. We have a great phone system up there.”

Mitch McConnell crony running for Kentucky AG is ineligible for office: lawsuit

Published

on

On Tuesday, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that a new lawsuit seeks to remove Daniel Cameron from the ballot as the Kentucky GOP's nominee for state attorney general.

According to the lawsuit, filed by retired union worker and "concerned citizen" Joseph Leon Jackson Sr. in Jefferson Circuit Court, Cameron does not meet the office requirement of having practiced law for eight years — because although he was admitted by the Kentucky Bar Association in 2011, he spent two of the following years clerking for U.S. District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove.
