Published

Attorneys for President Donald Trump have decided to fight the Manhattan District Attorney’s subpoena for his tax returns and financial data in an attempt to “block or at least narrow access to the records,” The New York Times reports.

Hook "has achieved historic results countering the Iranian regime," Pompeo said in a statement.

Hook will be replaced by Elliott Abrams, another veteran Republican who was an intellectual architect of the 2003 invasion of Iraq and has been leading Trump's unsuccessful campaign to oust Venezuela's leftist president, Nicolas Maduro.
