    Former Trump-era COVID-19 response coordinator Deborah Birx said in an interview Monday on “Good Morning America” that she demanded that the White House retract then-President Trump’s comment on potentially using disinfectant against COVID-19. Trump’s comment, made during a briefing on April 23, 2020, during the early days of the pandemic, implied that injected disinfectant could help fight the coronavirus.

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced she's coming out with a new book, one she says isn't like her previous written work. "State of Terror" is described as a political thriller that seems to resemble a bit of Clinton's resume. The plot follows the appointment of a woman chosen as the secretary of state by a new president, who's a "political enemy" of hers, and how a series of terrorist attacks prompt an "international chess game" involving countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran and even "the Russian mob."

    Former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham took on Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) in her new book, writing that the veteran lawmaker “was using Trump to mop up the freebies like there was no tomorrow.” Grisham in her new book “I’ll Take Your Questions Now,” set to be released on Tuesday, writes that Graham would use the president to receive free rounds of gold, food and access to celebrities. “It struck me that he was using Trump to mop up the freebies like there was no tomorrow (seems that he still is). He would show up at Mar-a-Lago or Bedminster...

    Milley as the top ranking military officer met with top military officials in the Pentagon two days after the MAGA riot and telling them to keep him in the process for all military actions, including the use of nuclear weapons. It also involved outreach to Milley's counterpart in the Chinese military to provide reassurances the US would not strike its rival, according to the book. 'If you get calls, no matter who they’re from, there’s a process here, there’s a procedure. No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I'm part of that...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday called it a “tremendous personal benefit” to have led New York state amid the coronavirus crisis — during which he scored $5.1 million for his pandemic memoir. In a speech to his fellow governors that was loaded with presumably unintentional double meanings, Cuomo told them that they all “have a new credibility.” “Very few people were going through what we went through and we went through it together,” he said. “And speaking for myself, it was a tremendous personal benefit.” Cuomo’s controversial book deal is the subject of pending probes by federal and state officials...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo boasted, “I am not a superhero,” in early versions of his book, drafted as his aides scrubbed a politically damaging Health Department report. ALBANY, N.Y. — As the coronavirus subsided in New York last year, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo had begun pitching a book proposal that would center on his image as a hero of the pandemic. But by early last summer, both his book and image had hit a critical juncture.

    Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, a key figure in the impeachment of President Trump, landed a book deal about her time as a career diplomat. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt told the Associated Press that it would publish Yovanovitch’s memoir, which is expected to be released in spring 2021. Two people familiar with the deal said it was worth seven figures. The book will reflect on her career from Mogadishu, Somalia, to Kyiv and “finally back to Washington, D.C. — where, to her dismay, she found a political system beset by many of the same challenges she had spent her...

    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump's former national security adviser John Bolton claims to have privately told Attorney General William Barr last year that he was concerned the President was granting favors to the autocratic leaders of China and Turkey, The New York Times reported Monday, citing multiple people's descriptions of an unpublished draft manuscript by Bolton. Barr told Bolton in response that he worried Trump had created the appearance of undue influence over two Justice Department investigations of companies in China and Turkey, which are traditionally independent inquiries, the draft manuscript says, according to the Times.

    This weekend we learned that former MSNBC regular and accused serial sexual harasser Mark Halperin has landed himself a new book deal. Regan Arts will be releasing a new book by Halperin in November, providing advice on “How to Beat Trump” next year. The author remains something of a sore spot in the #MeToo movement and this news left some of his former friends and allies shaking their heads. But that was nothing compared to the reactions of some of his accusers, who feel that he’s being given a pass without doing the required walk of shame first. (Daily Beast)...

    President Trump on Friday lashed out at Democrats over their ongoing investigations into his administration, suggesting there should instead be probes into former President Obama's book deal and other activities under his predecessor. "They want to investigate, they want to go fishing and I watched Bob Mueller and they have nothing," Trump said of Democrats during an Oval Office gathering to announce an agreement with Guatemala. "It’s a disgrace," he continued. "We want to find out what happened the last Democrat president. Let’s look into Obama the way they’ve looked into me. From day one they’ve looked into everything we’ve...

    Washington (CNN)Former FBI Director James Comey called Thursday for the removal of Confederate statues in Virginia's capital in the wake of blackface scandals involving top statewide elected officials, in an op-ed for The Washington Post. "Expressing bipartisan horror at blackface photos is essential, but removing the statues would show all of America that Virginia really has changed," Comey writes. "There is no doubt that Virginia's leaders need to be held accountable for their personal history, but every Virginia leader is responsible for the racist symbols that still loom over our lives," Comey writes.

    Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe has scored a book deal for "The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump," according to an announcement from his publisher. McCabe was ousted from the bureau earlier this year after a Justice Department inspector general report concluded that McCabe had lied about his disclosures to media. McCabe has denied the allegations and is currently suing the Justice Department for wrongful termination. The book deal comes just months after former FBI Director James Comey released "A Higher Loyalty," which is highly critical of the president and sold more...

    If the “senior official” who published an anonymous op-ed bashing President Donald Trump in the New York Times on Wednesday was hoping for accolades from the opposition, he or she must have been sorely disappointed, as the media’s leftists and Never Trumpers accused the author of cowardice for failing to take the extra step of removing Trump altogether. The author claimed to be part of the “resistance” inside the White House. But the real “resistance” wasn’t having it. Jessica Roy, an anti-Trump writer at the Los Angeles Times, attacked the author in an op-ed titled, “No, anonymous Trump official, you’re...

    When Omarosa Manigault-Newman, a star villain on Donald Trump’s reality TV show The Apprentice, worked in the Trump administration last year, other senior staffers—even some more senior than she was—feared her. And when she was ousted from the administration—in what White House officials described at the time as a “ruckus”—there was widespread relief that one of Trumpworld’s most vengeful figures was no longer around. But Omarosa is, if nothing, known for second acts. And, once more, she’s sparking headaches inside the administration. Her new book UNHINGED: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House, is being viewed as an act...

    Bill Browder rose from rebellious grandson of the former head of the Communist Party USA, Earl Browder, to the leading foreign capitalist in Russia, as the founder and CEO of the high-flying hedge fund Hermitage Capital Management. But his rise was matched by a brutal and deadly fall, in which the Russian government would steal and destroy Browder’s company, and physically threaten its employees, culminating in the imprisonment, torture and death of Browder’s lawyer Sergei Magnitsky — the man for whom on account of Browder’s lobbying, the Magnitsky Act was named. Browder and a deceased Magnitsky would both be convicted...
