‘Kiss of death’: Trump’s White House lawyer quits

Published

on

President Donald Trump has lost another member of his legal team.

Emmet Flood, who was serving as special counsel to the president, after working as interim White House counsel, will be leaving the administration in two weeks, Trump announced on Twitter.

“Emmet Flood, who came to the White House to help me with the Mueller Report, will be leaving service on June 14th,” Trump announced.

“He has done an outstanding job – no collusion, no obstruction,” Trump argued, despite the fact that obstruction was extensively documented by special counsel Robert Mueller.

“Case closed,” Trump argued, despite ongoing investigations by five House committees, the Southern District of New York and the New York attorney general.

“Emmet is my friend, and I thank him for the great job he has done,” Trump added.

Joe Lockhart, who served as Bill Clinton’s White House press secretary during impeachment, offered his analysis of the situation.

“This is the kiss of death for anyone’s career going forward,” Lockhart said. “If you’re a lawyer and you pleased Donald Trump, you did something unethical.”

“It all comes out in the end,” Lockhart predicted.

Former senator and disgraced former Attorney General Jeff Sessions has finally come, at age 73, to what is almost certainly the end of the road for his villainous political career. On Tuesday night, the right-wing Republican who served as a U.S. senator from 1997 to 2017 lost in his comeback attempt, defeated in the Republican primary for his old seat by Tommy Tuberville, a man whose cartoonish name better suited his previous career as head football coach at Auburn. The runoff election between the two wasn't even close, with the Riverboat Gambler (a silly and self-serious nickname for Tuberville, especially when "The Tubz" was right there for the taking) taking more than 60% of the vote.

Aides scramble to satisfy Trump’s need for adulation from big crowds during a pandemic: report

Published

on

In the wake of President Trump's less-than-stellar campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, campaign aides scrambled to reschedule another one in order to redeem themselves, setting their sights in the state of New Hampshire for their next event.

But the event was abruptly called off, thanks to an incoming tropical storm that never materialized. But according to inside sources speaking to POLITICO, the cancelation was more due to concerns about attendance -- a concern that underscores a challenge for the Trump campaign: how to satiate Trump's need for big crowds in the midst of a pandemic.

Sabatini told CNN host Brianna Keilar that mask mandates were a violation of Florida's constitution. "This is something government has never done before. We've never had government telling people what you have to do with your own face," he said.
