White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley asserted on Thursday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has “completely lost control” of the impeachment process.
During an appearance on Fox News, Gidley was asked about a Wednesday White House meeting that ended abruptly because Trump had a “meltdown,” according to Pelosi. Trump later accused the Speaker of having her own “meltdown.”
“I have seen Nancy Pelosi act this way multiple times in multiple meetings,” Gidley told Fox News host Bill Hemmer. “She takes the opportunity to come to the White House to have a simple conversation but serious ones.”
“She takes that opportunity to stand up, actually dictate — or try to — to the president of the United States,” he continued, “to push her agenda, to hijack the meeting, to simply insult the president of the United States.”
Gidley said that Pelosi “stood up, yelled at the president and then stormed out.” He also claimed that the Speaker was “extremely disrespectful to our staff, calling them incompetent.”
“It’s very disgraceful behavior for a Speaker of the House,” he added before accusing Pelosi having a singular focus on impeachment.
“All she wants to do is try and attack this president,” Gidley remarked. “The president has done nothing wrong but they continue to move forward with impeachment because she has completely lost control of her caucus.”

‘Odd Radio Circles’ perplex astronomers studying the newly discovered phenomenon
Astronomers believe they have discovered a new, bizarre type of cosmic object that is invisible to all wavelengths of light except radio.
The strange circular objects in question have been unofficially dubbed "Odd Radio Circles" (ORCs); three of them were discovered in a recent data accumulated during a preliminary survey by the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder, a radio telescope array in Western Australia. A fourth Odd Radio Circle was discovered when researchers sifted through old data from 2013.
Bill Barr quietly pulls off a shake-up in a federal prosecutor’s office — but why?
Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt last month to push U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman out of his position at the Southern District of New York blew up in his face. While Berman was ousted, Barr didn’t get the replacement he wanted, and House Democrats are now investigating.
But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
