John Bolton’s White House departure devolves into a bizarre public battle over whether he was fired or resigned

Published

on

John Bolton is pushing back hard against President Donald Trump and his former White House colleagues over his departure as national security adviser.

The president abruptly tweeted out the announcement Tuesday that he had asked for his national security adviser’s resignation, but Bolton quickly responded by saying he had offered to resign the previous evening — but Trump asked him to wait and discuss it the next day.

Bolton then texted Fox News host Brian Kilmeade during a live broadcast to dispute the president’s account.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham disagreed with Bolton’s account, texting The Daily Beast to confirm Trump’s version of events.

“Last night, Potus said he wanted Bolton’s resignation on his desk tomorrow AM,” Grisham texted. “Bolton delivered it. Simply put, many of Bolton’s policy priorities did not align w POTUS.”

Bolton then pushed back against Grisham, saying her statement was “flatly incorrect.”

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.
