    The FBI’s top brass initiated conversations with a White House official that were quickly leaked to CNN, according to a new book. Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe asked to speak privately with White House chief of staff Reince Priebus following a February 2017 intelligence briefing. The scene is described in “Media Madness,” Howard Kurtz’s new book on the press and its relationship with the Trump administration. McCabe said he asked for the meeting to tell Priebus that “everything” in a New York Times story ... was “bullsh-t.” ... McCabe claimed to want Priebus to know the FBI’s perspective that this...

    The national GOP’s director of evangelical outreach is quitting, and lodging complaints about what he calls the party’s “tone deaf attitude” toward a crucial Republican voting bloc. Chad Connelly, who served as the Republican National Committee’s director of faith engagement for the last four years, announced his resignation in an email circulated to close friends late Thursday. He complained that religious outreach has not been prioritized at the RNC under the leadership structure implemented by President Donald Trump’s White House. “The treatment I received from the new political department has been disrespectful, antagonistic and unacceptable,” Connelly wrote in an email...

    Reince Priebus, President Trump's former White House chief of staff, was interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team Friday as part of the probe into Russia’s alleged attempt to meddle in the 2016 election, his lawyer said. “Mr. Priebus was voluntarily interviewed by Special Counsel Mueller’s team today,” attorney William Burck told Fox News. “He was happy to answer all of their questions.” Priebus served as chairman of the Republican National Committee during the presidential election. He joined the White House as the president’s first chief of staff. He was replaced in July by John Kelly, the retired Marine general...

    07/31/2017 9:01:41 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 61 replies ^ | 07/31/2017
    Multiple reports have surfaced saying former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci was only hired to get rid of former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. Scaramucci was removed from his position Monday, after 10 days on the job. The dismissal came alongside reports that White House senior advisor Jared Kushner and President Trump’s daughter Ivanka influenced the president to bring in Scaramucci, primarily to take out Priebus. “Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter, and Jared Kushner, her husband, had pushed the president to hire Mr. Scaramucci, seeing him as a way to force out Mr. Priebus, the former national...

    An outspoken Democratic critic of President Donald Trump's is leading the call for Vice President Mike Pence to become the next commander-in-chief. California Representative Maxine Waters, who has become an internet sensation among the left for her frank criticism of the president in recent months, tweeted Saturday: "Mike Pence is somewhere planning an inauguration. Priebus and Spicer will lead the transition." Her tweet comes after former chief of staff Reince Priebus resigned from office Friday, a week after Sean Spicer left his post as press secretary. The men, both longtime insiders among the top ranks of the national Republican party,...
  • Scaramucci Friend (and Reported Publicist) Suggests Priebus Mistress in Twitter Rant

    Arthur Schwartz, a friend of Anthony Scaramucci who has been referred to as his publicist, warned Reince Priebus that he would “start dropping oppo” on the former White House chief of staff, adding “Mistress much?” in a Sunday morning tweet. The tweet was in response to a HuffPost story, which Schwartz presumably believes was sourced from Reince, that detailed Priebus’s concerns with Scaramucci’s business dealings. Schwartz added that he would be happy to start “trashing [Priebus] in the press” again. The tweets were quickly noticed by CNN’s Jake Tapper, who retweeted them noting they came from Scaramucci’s publicist. Schwartz has...

    Former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus revealed that White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon is someone who “only cares about” President Donald Trump’s agenda and thinks about his nationalist-populist platform “24 hours a day.” “I will say that Steve is doing a great job,” Priebus said in a Friday evening CNN interview after Trump tweeted that former Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly would be the new chief of staff. “He is a brilliant guy who only cares about the president’s agenda. He thinks about it 24 hours a day. Never quits.” Priebus’ characterization of Bannon is...

    Well..Priebus is gone, and now we will see if the House and Senate Republicans immediately fire both Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. You can blame McCain, Murkowsky & Collins for the Obamcare Repeal Failure, and, yes they are all turncoats & traitors to the American People and Republican caucus, but the real culprits are Ryan & McConnell. When a Democrat leader of either the House & Senate issues an edict on how will Senators vote on issue, every Democrat falls into line. Why? That is why they have leaders. Both McConnell and Ryan are not leaders, rather, they are weak...

    DB Daily Update ^ | 7.29.2017 | David Blackmon
    There is no question that the President is both frustrated with and very fond of his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions. President Trump was caught off-guard by Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the Democrat/Media-generated Russia Collusion fantasy play, and has stewed about that decision ever since. At the same time, though, Sessions was and remains one of the President’s earliest and most loyal supporters, and the two obviously like one another. But the President definitely wants to move Sessions out of Justice, so that he can appoint a new A/G who can exert some semblance of control over the ever-expanding,...

    It’s no secret that President Trump’s Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci do not much care for each other — and this was BEFORE the The New Yorker piece was published on Thursday. After the November election President Trump asked Anothony Scaramucci to join his Administration. Scaramucci sold his company, SkyBridge Capital, in anticipation of joining President Trump in the White House but Reince Priebus reportedly blocked him from being appointed to a top job within the administration. Late last week President Trump appointed Scaramucci Communications Director despite continued objections from Reince Priebus. Scaramucci was understandably...

    WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump’s newly appointed communications director publicly acknowledged his power struggle with the White House chief of staff and said their differences may be too wide to bridge. Anthony Scaramucci, who joined the White House last week and reports directly to the president rather than to the chief of staff, as is customary, said in a CNN interview that he and Chief of Staff Reince Priebus have been at odds “We have had differences. When I said we were brothers from the podium, that’s because we’re rough on each other,” he said, referring to a comment he made last...
