Ivanka and Jared have pushed Trump for a year to fire Rudy Giuliani: report

Published

President Donald Trump has been close to Rudy Giuliani for decades, but his kids have frequently pressed him to cut the former New York mayor loose.

Giuliani has caused multiple problems for the president, namely outing that he was working on a secret mission for the president while coordinating with the State Department and Mike Pompeo.

“Most people around Trump have tried to say Rudy is not a positive,” a former West Wing official recently told Vanity Fair‘s Gabriel Sherman.

In a bombshell report, Sherman revealed that Trump continues to ignore any criticism, despite Giuliani being under his own investigation. His associates Lev Parnas and Ignor Fruman have also been indicted.

“He liked him on television,” the official said of Trump’s affinity for Giuliani.

Giuliani has since been cut off from appearing on television by Republicans who were concerned he was making things worse.

In both cases, Mr. Trump’s advisers implored him to stay out of the primaries, and he agreed to — only to surprise his aides by jumping in to support Mr. DeSantis and Mr. Kemp."

Courts have avoided refereeing between Congress and the president — Trump may change all that

Published

President Donald Trump’s refusal to hand over records to Congress and allow executive branch employees to provide information and testimony to Congress during the impeachment battle is the strongest test yet of legal principles that over the past 200 years have not yet been fully defined by U.S. courts.

It’s not the first test: Struggles over power among the political branches predate our Constitution. The framers chose not to, and probably could not, fully resolve them.

Trump declares himself the ‘greatest of all presidents’ in manic tweetstorm attacking Pelosi and Democrats

Published

on

Donald Trump broke out of his Twitter hibernation on Saturday afternoon just before flying off to Florida for a pair of fundraisers, and used the opportunity to declare himself the "greatest of all presidents."

Attacking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for not passing his signature trade bill, Trump then went after Democrats for trying to impeach him -- saying they were making a big mistake.

On Twitter, the president wrote: ""Hard to believe, but if Nancy Pelosi had put our great Trade Deal with Mexico and Canada, USMCA, up for a vote long ago, our economy would be even better. If she doesn’t move quickly, it will collapse!"
