Former Obama officials torch Trump’s press secretary for ‘bald-faced lie’ about leaving mean notes

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham on Tuesday told a tall tale about Obama officials — and now many of them are calling her out for it.

While talking to reporters, Grisham alleged that Obama staffers in January 2017 left notes that read, “You will fail” for Trump officials.

The story immediately raised suspicions among reporters who were skeptical that such notes would have remained a secret for nearly three years, especially given how leak-prone the Trump White House has been.

Multiple former Obama administration officials subsequently took to Twitter to attack Grisham for telling what they described as a flat-out lie.

“This is another bald faced lie,” wrote former national security Susan Rice.

“This is an outrageous lie,” wrote Jon Wolfsthal, a former senior director of the National Security Council. “I know. I handed over the nuclear office at the NSC. Shameless and disgusting.”

“100% false,” added former White House Communications Director Liz Allen. “I left a note wishing them good luck serving the American people and offering to be a resource.”

And former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau chimed in to express disappointment at the relative lack of creativity involved in Grisham’s falsehood.

“It’s appalling that she thinks our notes would have been that lame,” he joked.

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?

Published

on

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.
