Trump’s chief of staff is on ‘shaky ground’ after being implicated in whistleblower scandal: CNN

Published

on

President Donald Trump is displeased with his acting White House chief of staff as support for impeachment continues to grow both in Congress and with voters, CNN reported Saturday.

“We have breaking news right now. Multiple sources tell CNN that acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney is now on shaky ground following the release of the phone call transcript between President Trump and the president of Ukraine,” CNN’s Ana Cabrera reported Saturday.

“You will recall that transcript revealed President Trump telling the Ukrainians how much the U.S. does for them before saying he would like a favor. The president then goes on to ask Ukraine to investigate 2016 election meddling before turning his sights on Joe Biden and his son Hunter,” she explained.

“And we’ve learned that multiple people, including Mitch McConnell, urged President Trump to release this transcript, so why is Mulvaney taking the heat?” Cabrera asked.

“That’s right, there were multiple people who did encourage the president to release this transcript,” CNN’s Jeremy Diamond replied. “But that is not the reason according to these sources why the president is now upset apparently with the White House chief of staff. Rather, not the release of the transcript, but lack of an apparent strategy from the White House to handle the fallout of that whistleblower leak.”

“We already know from past reporting that this White House was indeed caught a little bit flat-footed with the pace at which the speed at which House Democrats moved forward with this impeachment inquiry. And now they are still struggling to put the pieces together and figure out how they are going to respond,” he explained. “Apparently the president’s frustrations and other White House officials frustrations with Mick Mulvaney became clear during a meeting yesterday that is according to multiple officials.”

Russia is using videos of American soldiers fleeing Syria as propaganda, according to Fox News. As Turkey bombed the Kurdish people, American forces on the ground left the area, some even coming under Turkish artillery fire.

"We just learned the U.S. military had to use a show of force to disrupt Turkish backed forces who got too close to a base in northern Syria," Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffin said. "The U.S. military had to use Apache gun ship and F-16s to deter the Turkish-backed forces. U.S. military is undergoing hasty withdrawal of nearly all of the 1,000, or so, U.S. troops to help stabilize northern Syria."

Published

A senior economic and trade advisor to President Donald Trump has been busted for making up a person he can quote in his books and to justify his policies.

A shocking expose in The Chronicle of Higher Education revealed that Peter Navarro invented the name "Ron Vara," an anagram for Navarro, to justify his own opinions in his books.

The so-called Ron Vara has strong opinions, fortune-cookie-style quotes and an elaborate back story as "a military veteran and Harvard-trained economist who made seven figures in the stock market by investing in companies that do well during international crises," the report said.
