    Former President Richard Nixon is making a comeback, this time as congressional Democrats mull impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. Just this week, the House Judiciary Committee heard testimony on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report from Nixon’s former White House counsel, John Dean, a key witness in the Watergate scandal. What’s often forgotten about Nixon is that, while he’s the only U.S. president to resign from office, he was never actually impeached. The latest public figure to bobble this fact was Jimmy Kimmel, host of ABC’s late-night show, "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Kimmel’s comment came during the June 6 episode...

    The Hill is reporting that Joe Manchin of West Virginia is fed up with nothing getting done in the Senate and is thinking seriously about leaving to run for Governor. Multiple sources indicate this is an ongoing frustration that peaked last month: Manchin’s patience reached a breaking point shortly before the Memorial Day recess, when the Senate finally finished debating a disaster relief bill that many lawmakers thought should have passed weeks earlier.A Democratic senator who requested anonymity recalled Manchin getting thoroughly fed up and threatening to retire before the end of the 116th Congress.“He said, ‘I’m out of...

    TEARFUL Theresa May today finally admitted her time was up and quit as Prime Minister insisting: "I've done my best". The PM was forced to resign after she failed to deliver Brexit and lost the support of her own MPs - but will continue in office as a lame duck until July. Shortly after meeting Tory "executioner" Sir Graham Brady, she addressed the nation in the spring sunshine of Downing Street - watched by adoring husband Philip - and admitted her time is up. The PM confessed she now has no chance of ever getting her Brexit deal through Parliament...

    Prime minister to leave on 7 June, drawing three-year tenure to a close Theresa May has bowed to intense pressure from her own party and named 7 June as the day she will step aside as Conservative leader, drawing her turbulent three-year premiership to a close. Speaking in Downing Street, May said it had been “the honour of my life” to serve as Britain’s second female prime minister. Her voice breaking, she said she would leave “with no ill will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love”. The prime minister...

    May’s announcement came the morning after Brits went to the polls to vote in the European Parliament elections, with Britain only participating due to its departure from the E.U. being delayed until October. Full results are not expected for days but polls suggested her Conservative Party were expected to be punished severely for the government’s handling of Brexit, with polls suggesting the Tories could receive just single-digit support. A YouGov poll for The Times of London published Wednesday found that the Tories would come in fifth place, with just 7% of the vote, while the newly-formed Brexit Party was predicted...

    Baltimore City Solicitor Andre Davis drafted a resignation letter for Mayor Catherine Pugh and gave it Wednesday to her attorney, as city residents await her decision about whether to step down in the face of federal and state investigations. Her lawyer, Steven Silverman, is expected to hold a news conference Thursday afternoon at his downtown office. In a quick, curbside exchange outside City Hall, Davis gave a manila folder to Silverman about 2:15 p.m. Wednesday. Slightly more than an hour later, Silverman arrived at the Democratic mayor’s house in the city’s Ashburton neighborhood.

    Maryland Matters ^ | April 29, 2019 | Bruce DePuyt
    A member of the Legislative Black Caucus from Baltimore City has resigned from the group over remarks purportedly made by the caucus’ leader. Her decision comes just days before the House of Delegates votes on a new speaker, amid signs that a leading candidate — a member of the caucus from Prince George’s County — may be preparing to align himself with Republican legislators in order to win the position. That decision has frayed relations within the 98-member Democratic caucus – which includes 45 members of the black caucus. The LBC is scheduled to meet Monday afternoon in Annapolis –...

    The head of the Southern Poverty Law Center on Friday announced that he is stepping down, the latest high-profile departure from the watchdog organization best known for its work monitoring extremist groups. Southern Poverty Law Center President Richard Cohen sent an email to staff saying that he would be stepping down from his leadership role at the organization. The organization last week fired founder and prominent civil rights attorney Morris Dees for unspecified reasons. “Whatever problems exist at the SPLC happened on my watch, so I take responsibility for them,” Cohen wrote. […] Last year, it agreed to pay a...

    Last week I wrote about the SNC-Lavalin scandal in Canada which has engulfed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s administration. If you missed that, the very brief version is that Trudeau’s former Attorney General, Jody Wilson-Raybould, has accused him of leading a campaign to prevent the prosecution of an engineering company in Montreal called SNC-Lavalin. This campaign included 10 phone calls and 10 personal meetings urging the AG to intervene in the case. Many of those contacts, including the one with the PM himself, mentioned that it would be bad news for the party if SNC-Lavalin were to be prosecuted just...

    During John Kerry's endeavors to save the JCPOA (the Iran deal) in 2018, his main point to Mohammad Javad Zarif (Rouhani's foreign minister in the last five years) was the importance of the Islamic Republic's patience until 2020, "when the Trump administration will be gone," or an earlier ousting through impeachment. If you read all the op-eds and editorials in the Islamic regime's propaganda machine, they also asked people to be patient and wait until Trump is ousted or defeated and sanctions will be over. Democrats who want Trump out of White House have not been alone. Their Islamist allies...

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is expected to leave his role at the Justice Department by mid-March, a senior DOJ official told Fox News on Monday. An announcement of who has been selected to replace Rosenstein could come as early as this week. A Trump administration official added that Attorney General William Barr has picked Jeffrey Rosen to serve as his deputy attorney general. Fox News reported in January that Rosenstein was expected to step down in the coming weeks to ensure a smooth transition for Barr, who was sworn in on Thursday.

    As a young girl growing up in Virginia, I experienced racism firsthand. I know what it looks like and how it feels. I’ve also spent a good part of my life defending the rights of preborn children to live and love among us. It’s my personal mission to fight for and defend the value and dignity of human life. Most Virginians share these beliefs. They are repelled by racism, repulsed by the thought of infanticide. This is why Gov. Ralph Northam must resign. Any decision on his part to delay appears to be an act of a man weighing what...

  • Trump confirms Zinke out at Interior

    The latest hot rumor (well… more than just a rumor since the President confirmed it) in White House personnel shakeups is that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke will be submitting his resignation this week. While the two-year mark in any administration is a time when cabinet members tend to pack it in if they don’t plan to stay for a full term, there were signs that this might be coming for the past several months. There’s been an obvious and concerted effort to gin up any sort of “scandals” they could find surrounding Zinke, much the same as with other Trump...

    Washington (CNN) John Kelly is expected to resign as White House chief of staff in the coming days, two sources familiar with the situation unfolding in the West Wing tell CNN. Seventeen months in, Kelly and President Donald Trump have reached a stalemate in their relationship and it is no longer seen as tenable by either party. Though Trump asked Kelly over the summer to stay on as chief of staff for two more years, the two have stopped speaking in recent days. Trump is actively discussing a replacement plan, though a person involved in the process said nothing is...
