    Former national security adviser John Bolton didn't offer any praise of President Donald Trump in remarks at a private event Wednesday, but instead took aim at his former boss' policies on the world stage, according to an attendee. Bolton, who Trump fired earlier this month, made comments at an event hosted by the Gatestone Institute in New York that the attendee characterized to CNN as scathing in their criticism of Trump's approach to Iran, North Korea and Afghanistan. Politico was first to report on Bolton's remarks. "Bolton didn't have anything positive to say about Trump," the attendee said.

    In phone calls to McMaster, Trump told his second national security adviser that he missed him. WASHINGTON — As President Donald Trump began losing confidence in national security adviser John Bolton, whom he fired on Tuesday, he reached out to the man he had fired to give Bolton the job: retired Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster. In phone calls to McMaster — the first of which took place last fall — Trump told his second national security adviser that he missed him, according to two people familiar with the conversations. It’s a sentiment the president has also expressed to White House...

    Outgoing national security adviser John Bolton on Tuesday disputed President Trump's account of his dismissal, tweeting that he offered to resign before the president announced his ouster. "I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, 'Let's talk about it tomorrow,'" Bolton tweeted. Washington Post reporter Robert Costa and other journalists said that Bolton had texted them to make clear that he resigned. The messages came moments after Trump rocked Washington with a pair of tweets that said he had asked Bolton to step down due to disagreements about policy. "I informed John Bolton last night that his services...

    John Bolton: 'Substantial' belief five countries spreading lies on Trump team dysfunction by Daniel Chaitin | June 11, 2019 12:41 PM National security adviser John Bolton named five countries he believes are spreading lies about dysfunction in the Trump administration. “We have substantial reason to believe that North Korea, Iran, Venezuela, Russia, and China have made a decision to — and you can see it publicly — to try to sow disinformation about the administration, and to say that the president and his advisers are divided, and things like that,” Bolton said Tuesday during a Wall Street Journal event in...

The director oversees the Secret Service's work on both protection and investigations. "There is a near-systematic purge happening at the nation's second-largest national security agency," this official says. United...

    The White House found itself knocked off balance ahead of the State of the Union after an anonymous staffer leaked months of President Donald Trump’s schedules to Axios, two administration officials told The Daily Caller. Axios published months of Trump’s private schedules Sunday evening, detailing how Trump spends nearly 60 percent of his time in unstructured “executive time.” One administration official said the leak itself did not reveal any information, which wasn’t already known generally, but was “aghast and disgusted” that anyone in the president’s circle would reveal so much proprietary information. Another administration official said rank and file White...

    Jared Kushner ran a white board planning session last week at the White House with the Koch network and other people who worked with him on criminal justice reform. The purpose: to see if the administration can replicate the approach they took to pass criminal justice reform to overhaul America’s immigration system. “They would like to try and replicate at some level a bipartisan coalition on immigration issues, something paired with border security as well,” said Koch Industries senior vice president Mark Holden, who attended the meeting. A senior White House official familiar with Kushner’s thinking said it’s too early...

    On the day Hope Hicks announced she would be leaving her post as White House communications director, she was "a puddle of tears" during the White House communications meeting Wednesday, according to one eyewitness. President Trump was angered by Hicks' testimony before the House Intelligence Committee -- angered by the fact that she admitted to the panel over the course of nine hours of testimony that she told "white lies" on his behalf. It is doubtful that this would have caused her to resign.

    he Trump staffer who took the fall for lifting several passages of Melania Trump’s speech from an earlier address by Michelle Obama is a registered Democrat in New York, public records show. Meredith McIver, a longtime writer for the Trump organization, admitted that she had helped Melania compose the speech she delivered at the GOP convention Monday night. Melania, she said, had read her several passages of Obama’s 2008 speech to the Democratic convention over the phone and she mistakenly inserted them into the speech, she admitted in a statement. Team Trump at first adamantly denied that there was any...
