    A mass resignation letter addressed to President Trump is turning heads for more than the 16 people who said they quit. As some people pointed out online, the first letter of each paragraph from the Committee on the Arts and the Humanities spells out the word “RESIST.” Do you think they did this on purpose or is it just a coincidence?

    The guy who helped President Donald Trump write his seminal book, The Art of the Deal, said the former reality-TV star will soon leave the White House on his own accord. In a series of tweets Wednesday, Tony Schwartz—who co-authored the 1987 book that helped define the real estate magnate's public image—said he thought the walls were closing in on Trump and he would soon leave office in an attempt to save face. Every tweet Schwartz sent Wednesday was about Trump. "Think of Trump as a toddler w/reactive attachment disorder, and therefore in a permanent virulent tantrum. His development ended...

    Donald Trump would resign before Congress is able impeach him, a senior US representative has said, as pressure mounts over his team's alleged links to Russia. Jackie Speier, who sits on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said attempts by the President to pardon members of his family or fire the man appointed to investigate Russian meddling in last year’s presidential election could trigger an impeachment vote. “I have always thought that he was never going to fulfil his full term,” she said. “I am more convinced that he will leave before any impeachment would take place.”

She continued: "The recent incidents do not reflect the training and procedures we’ve developed as a Department. Despite the MPD’s many accomplishments under my leadership over these years and my love for the City, I have to put the communities we serve first. I’ve decided I am...

They can talk about nothing else. What do you think the percentage of the American people who are hanging on this thread with bated breath about Sean Spicer resigning is? I’ll betcha it’s not even 5%. This is a great illustration of the disconnect that exists. Spicer resigns, the Drive-Bys are excited! They think they caused it, number one.

    snip At a 10 a.m. meeting this morning, President Trump offered Scaramucci the job as White House Communications Director. Spicer quit after that meeting, according to the NYT's Glenn Thrush. "This was the last straw," said a source close to Spicer. The objection of the press secretary and his allies was that Scaramucci would hold the title, while Spicer would be expect to continue to carry out many of the duties related to strategy and planning. "Sean was going to be expected to serve as press secretary while also being the quasi-comms director," the source said. After the Oval Office...

    Utahns are consulting the U.S. Constitution more than usual because of Congressman Jason Chaffetz’s resignation. A vacancy in the House of Representatives is unique among all federal offices because it must be filled by an election. No appointments are permitted for membership in what is often called “The People’s House.” Federal judges are chosen by the president, with Senate confirmation of the appointment. The same is true for Cabinet officers. Governors may make appointments to fill Senate vacancies. Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich infamously tried to auction the Senate seat vacated when Barack Obama was elected president; that’s why Blagojevich...
