    Ahead of the Department of Justice’s filing Tuesday night that opposed President Trump’s call for a "special master" to review White House documents seized from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, seven former federal prosecutors filed an amicus brief asking a Florida federal judge to deny his request. Former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman, Donald B. Ayer, Gregory A. Brower, John J. Farmer Jr., Stuart M. Gerson, Peter D. Keisler, William F. Weld – who all served in Republican administrations – called Trump’s request a "waste of time." The motion said the former prosecutors have a "special interest" in the...

    CNN anchor Jim Acosta grilled Andrew Yang, former Democratic presidential candidate, about the platform of his newly formed political party, the Forward Party. Last month, in collaboration with the former Republican congressman from Florida David Jolly and former Republican Governor of New Jersey Christine Todd Whitman, Yang announced the formation of the Forward Party in an op-ed published in the Washington Post.

    Dozens of former Republican and Democratic officials will announce on Wednesday a new national political third party to appeal to millions of voters they say are dismayed with what they see as America's dysfunctional two-party system. The new party, called Forward, will initially be co-chaired by former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang and Christine Todd Whitman, the former Republican governor of New Jersey. They hope the party will become a viable alternative to the Republican and Democratic parties that dominate U.S. politics, founding members told Reuters.
  • Trump Says He Endorses Alaska Governor – But Only If Gov. Refuses to Support Lisa Murkowski’s Reelection Bid

    In one of his more blatant attempts to impose his will on a Republican politician, Donald Trump endorsed Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy (R) for reelection in 2022 on the condition that he will not support Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s (R-AK) reelection bid next year. Dunleavy is facing a primary challenge from state Rep. Christopher Kurka.
  • Former Republican Governor [Christine Todd Whitman (R-NJ)] Rips Trump, Says ‘It’s a Scary Time for Our Democracy’

    Former Gov. Christine Todd Whitman (R-NJ) said Wednesday that former President Donald Trump’s conditional endorsement in the Alaska gubernatorial race is a sign that the Republican Party is headed in a scary direction. Trump a day before endorsed Gov. Mike Dunleavy (R), but only on one condition: He must refuse to support Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) in her reelection bid in 2022. Murkowski of course voted earlier this year to convict the former president on a charge of incitement of insurrection following the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot. “Alaska needs Mike Dunleavy as Governor now more than ever,” Trump said...
  • Another Shocker? Is a Republican Upset Brewing in New Jersey?

    Glenn Youngkin has clinched the governor's race in Virginia. In fact, the GOP dominated the Old Dominion, sweeping all three major statewide races. Republicans won the lieutenant governor and attorney general races. They're poised to flip the House of Delegates. It's over in Virginia—but up the road on I-95, we have another close race in New Jersey. Yes, you read that right. The state has been a graveyard for Republicans, except for Chris Christie, Tom Kean, and Christine Todd Whitman. No one thought Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy was in danger. No one thought this was going to be a competitive...

    Two GOP officials have urged Republicans to vote Democratic in the 2022 midterm elections to bolster the party from candidates they described as "pro-Trump extremists." Miles Taylor, a Trump-era Department of Homeland Security chief of staff, and Christine Todd Whitman, a former Republican governor of New Jersey, wrote a New York Times op-ed that ran Monday. Taylor is best known for anonymously writing a 2018 op-ed article in The Times describing a "resistance" of Trump administration officials working to tamper what he called the former president's "worst inclinations." Together, Taylor and Whitman asked that the GOP's base consider supporting Democrats...

    Two GOP officials urged voters to make sure "rational Republicans" don't lose the "GOP civil war." The op-ed was written by Miles Taylor, a Trump-era Department of Homeland Security chief of staff, and Christine Todd Whitman, a former Republican Gov. of New Jersey. They highlighted the need to elect a "strong contingent of moderate Democrats" in 2022. Two GOP officials have urged Republican voters to vote Democrat in the 2022 midterm elections, suggesting that this might be a way for the GOP to "battle pro-Trump extremists."

    Monday night's programming at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) will feature four Republicans speaking in support of presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden, underscoring an effort to reach out to moderates and undecideds who may be recoiling at the prospect of four more years of President Trump leading the nation. Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who was the last to drop out of the 2016 Republican primary against Trump, was already scheduled to be featured in Monday night's programming. But Monday morning, the DNC released the names of three more Republicans who will speak during the convention's two-hour broadcast that starts...

    President Donald Trump's decision to block Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, from appearing before the House of Representatives is ludicrous. [cut] If he wants to be a good leader in this time, Trump should promote free and open access to data about the virus and welcome input on how the U.S. can improve its response to the pandemic. Regardless of the political climate, the president should permit Congress to continue with its role in managing this crisis, which means that access to scientific testimony must come before politics. In the same way, Democrats and Republicans in...
  • Bill Kristol’s ‘Republican’ group reportedly has no GOP donors

    (snip) -- So-called “conservative” commentator Bill Kristol reportedly has his never-ending campaign to take down President Donald Trump receive funding from a left-wing billionaire. Kristol, the editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard, seems to have taken his never-Trump activities to another level, actively opposing Republican candidates and conservative causes through the group he founded, “Republicans for the Rule of Law.” But despite its name, the group seems to have no Republican donors according to a report by Julie Kelly of American Greatness, though there is one prominent benefactor: progressive billionaire Pierre Omidyar, the co-founder of eBay. One of Omidyar’s nonprofits, the...

    President Donald Trump's interaction with Russian President Vladimir Putin was a "disaster," "detrimental to the country" and the strongest evidence yet that "the president (should) step down." Those are the words of former New Jersey Gov. Christie Whitman, a Republican, who penned a blistering op-ed in the Los Angeles Times this weekend calling on fellow GOPers to put country over party and dump Trump. "In this election year, opposing Trump is risky for GOP candidates," Whitman wrote. "Invoking the need to choose country over party is an overused trope. But it is essential now."

    Former Republican New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman said President Donald Trump is "clearly unfit to remain in office" and called for him to step down Sunday (in a lengthy Los Angeles Times op-ed.) Todd Whitman, who also led the EPA during President George W. Bush's first term, said Trump's "disgraceful performance" before Russian leader Vladimir Putin during their controversial summit last week in Finland helped her come to such a conclusion.

    A leading US Republican says she fears for the future of her seven grandchildren with Donald Trump in the White House. Christine Todd Whitman, head of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under George W Bush, accused Mr Trump of ignoring compelling science. And she warned that his threat to scrap climate protection policies puts the world's future at risk. Trump supporters say rules on climate and energy are stifling business. But Ms Todd Whitman says the US must find ways of promoting business without unduly harming the planet.

    Every few generations a political party has to define itself. Now is that moment for the Republican Party. Until recently the GOP has been seen in Washington as the "party of no." Now it is being defined as the party of extreme. While the U.S. may be yearning for definitive leadership from a president, the use of hate and fear tactics by so many of the GOP presidential candidates is not the answer.

    The Environmental Protection Agency has the authority to address climate change. That shouldn’t be a controversial statement, but in some quarters, it is. Indeed, it’s at the heart of a set of legal challenges that will be heard by the Supreme Court on Monday. As administrator of the EPA from 2001-03, I served in the administration of President George W. Bush. I may sometimes disagree with his successor on the best way to address climate change as a matter of policy, but I absolutely agree that the EPA has broad authority to issue regulations addressing climate change, including those being...

Suggestions welcome at — Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) December 20, 2015 Kristol isn’t alone.

    Environmental Protection Agency administrator Gina McCarthy has issued a warning to Republicans who continue to question the integrity of the agency’s scientific data: we’re coming for you. McCarthy told an audience at the National Academy of Sciences on Monday morning the agency will go after a “small but vocal group of critics” who are arguing the EPA is using “secret science” to push costly clean air regulations. “Those critics conjure up claims of EPA secret science — but it’s not really about EPA science or secrets. It’s about challenging the credibility of world renowned scientists and institutions like Harvard University...
