    On July 28th 1918, the 4th anniversary of the beginning of World War I, Serbian flag flew above the White House and all public buildings in American capital by the order of President Woodrow Wilson. This unique event, a Serbian flag flying above the White House in Washington, took place over 9 decades ago but remained a memorable act of the US President Woodrow Wilson towards Serbia that submitted the ultimate sacrifice in “The Great War” – it lost 26% of its population and had a precedent in the war history when almost its entire population had to withdraw from their homeland.One of...

    National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster triggered a "flurry" among reporters when he was spotted on the White House grounds Friday afternoon, amid reporting that his departure is only a matter of time. McMaster appeared twice outside the West Wing, resulting in a rush of reporters out of the adjacent White House briefing room. A pool report described the scene as a “press corps fire drill.” "Everybody has got to leave the White House at some point,” McMaster told Tara Palmeri of ABC News, who tweeted his remarks after the first sighting.

    The House Intelligence Committee has released findings from its upcoming report on the Trump-Russia affair — and its main conclusion is that it has discovered no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. "We have found no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians," the committee said in a one-page summary of its findings released Monday afternoon. In addition, the committee took issue with the intelligence community assessment of Russian motivations in the 2016 election. The committee agrees with the assessment that the Russians did, in...

    Just wanted to share this. For the first time since I have been a County Supervisor (Commissioner), an Administration really wants to hear from local governments. We (AZ County Supervisors) have been invited to a private meeting, at the White House, with top staff from several different agencies who actually want to know how we can work better together. It is unprecedented. And did I mention, IT’S AT THE FREAKING WHITE HOUSE!!!! I’ll report back tomorrow.

    Hogg said he "hung up on the White House the other day" after he received a call to attend Trump's listening session. He called the timing of the invitation "very offensive considering the fact that there were funerals the next day, there was mourning we still had to do." "I ended on this message with them. I said, 'We don't need to listen to President Trump. President Trump needs to listen to the screams of the children and the screams of this nation,'" Hogg said. Hogg also criticized the Florida legislature for not discussing an assault weapons ban, but instead...

    After a crazy 24 hours, sources close to President Trump say he is in a bad place — mad as hell about the internal chaos and the sense that things are unraveling. The big picture: Hope Hicks leaving is obviously a huge blow to him. Every time he reads about Attorney General Jeff Sessions, his head explodes. The staff is just trying to ride out the storm. Everywhere you look inside this White House, top officials are fighting, fomenting, feuding or fleeing, insiders say in conversations with us. Hope Hicks — without question, the aide (family aside) with whom Trump...

    Senior advisor to President Donald Trump, Jared Kusher -- who is also the president's son-in-law -- has officially lost the ability to review sensitive classified information after failing to obtain a permanent security clearance. Speculation surrounding whether Kushner's permanent security clearance, in addition to temporary clearances held by dozens of White House Staffers, would come through has been swirling for weeks. Last week President Trump said it was up to Chief of Staff John Kelly to determine whether his son-in-law would continue to review classified information. “That’ll be up to General Kelly. General Kelly respects Jared a lot and General Kelly will...

    "While the Democrats' memorandum attempts to undercut the President politically, the President supported its release in the interest of transparency. Nevertheless, this politically driven document fails to answer serious concerns raised by the Majority's memorandum about the use of partisan opposition research from one candidate, loaded with uncorroborated allegations, as a basis to ask a court to approve surveillance of a former associate of another candidate, at the height of the presidential campaign. As the Majority's memorandum stated, the FISA judge was never informed that Hillary Clinton and the DNC funded the dossier that was a basis for the Department...

    White House press secretary Sarah Sanders says she is “working hard to be more punctual” after a series of delays caused reporters to spend 50 percent more time this year waiting for scheduled White House press briefings to begin. Sanders walked to the briefing room podium 88 minutes late on Tuesday, the longest delay of the year, contributing to a sense among journalists that the problem is getting worse. Reporters who attended all 17 briefings of 2018 spent 10.5 hours waiting for Sanders — and in one instance, her deputy Raj Shah — beyond advertised start times, the equivalent of...
