    Roy McGrath, a chief of staff of former two-term Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan turned fugitive who has been on the run from the FBI and federal officials for weeks, is now dead, his attorney said.

President Biden also attended the first two meetings which both took place at the U.S. Naval Observatory, where the...

    Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley called White House chief of staff Ron Klain’s recent retweet appearing to praise the Biden administration for executing the "ultimate work-around" for President Biden’s recent vaccine mandate "breathtakingly daft." "The retweet was breathtakingly daft on the eve of litigation over the order. It is reminiscent of President Biden admitting that his own White House counsel and their preferred legal experts all said that the eviction moratorium extension was likely unconstitutional," Turley told Fox News on Friday. "Courts will now be asked to ignore the admission and uphold a self-admitted evasion of constitutional limits," Turley added. The...

    The White House is reeling after yet another sub-par jobs report dropped this week. After missing expectations by a whopping 700,000 in April, they managed to only come in at around 100,000 under in May; though, the big drop in the actual projection by the “experts” helped that equation (the projection was lowered from 1,000,000 the previous month to around 650,000 for May).

    White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said on Thursday that Anthony Fauci was wrong to liken the coronavirus to the 1918 flu pandemic, calling his remarks “false” and “irresponsible.” Meadows made the comments on Fox News after rebuking White House trade adviser Peter Navarro’s decision to pen an op-ed criticizing Fauci, the top U.S. infectious disease expert, which the chief of staff said was “not appropriate.” Meadows went on to argue that not everything that Fauci says is correct. “He was at Georgetown the other day and he suggested that this virus was worse or as bad as the...

    America, the best truly is yet to come. President Trump’s brilliant move to secure Mark Meadows as his new chief of staff ensures the continued success of an already amazing presidency and, thus, the nation.

    This is a big deal. – In a “surprise” move that really wasn’t all that surprising yesterday, President Donald Trump announced that North Carolina Republican Mark Meadows would replace Mick Mulvaney as White House Chief of Staff. Mulvaney had made it known weeks ago that he was ready to roll out of the high-pressure job to assume the post of Special Envoy to Northern Ireland, a post he has sought for some time. It had long been considered likely that Meadows would assume some high-level post within the Trump Administration, a desire he had made known upon his announcement last...

    President Trump's new acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney isn't giving up his old job as White House budget director, meaning he can be forced to testify before Congress when Democrats retake the House of Representatives next month. White House chiefs of staff generally are off-limits to congressional subpoenas, but Mulvaney's decision to be both acting chief of staff and director of the Office of Management and Budget sets up potentially ugly fights over his testimony. "I think this is a huge mistake for Mulvaney and for the president because it creates a real possibility for separation of...
