    It's not just Rex Tillerson in the White House departure lounge as Jared Kushner and top economic adviser Gary Cohn may bolt after Trump's first year in office
    • Rumors have swirled that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson could be replaced soon by CIA Director Mike Pompeo
    • Now it appears presidential son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner would be headed out of the administration
    • National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn could also be eyeing an exit
    • 'You're definitely going to see some people leave after tax cuts get done,' said a White House aide

    Kushner and his family were lifelong dems, WTF was trump thinking bringing him in the circle?????????

    Some of Jared Kushner’s relatives are distancing themselves from his support of father-in-law Donald Trump in a flap over a Tweet many find anti-Semitic — and blasting the newspaper publisher for invoking their Holocaust survivor grandparents.

    The relatives called it “self-serving” and “disgusting” for Jared Kushner to use their family history as a way of backing Trump against charges of anti-Semitism.



    Different take-away from our Grandparents’ experience. We must speak out against hate. Anti-semitism or otherwise. https://t.co/zOuDSXNsa5— marc kushner (@marchitizer) July 6, 2016
    “I have a different takeaway from my grandparents’ experience,” Marc Kushner, Jared’s first cousin, wrote on Facebook, according to Politico. “It is our responsibility as the next generation to speak up against hate. Anti-Semitism or otherwise.”

    The family feud erupted after Trump posted a tweet of Hillary Clinton, alongside a six-sided star and a pile of dollar bills. Many Jews and others objected to the post as anti-Semitic.

    But Kushner pushed back by saying that Trump is “and incredibly loving and tolerant person who has embraced my family and our Judaism.”


    On July 7, he released a statement in the Observer, a paper that he owns, in response to journalist Dana Schwartz’s open letter denouncing what she called Trump’s anti-Semitism.

    “I am the grandson of Holocaust survivors…” Kushner wrote. “I go into these details, which I have never discussed, because it’s important to me that people understand where I’m coming from when I report that I know the difference between actual, dangerous intolerance versus these labels that get tossed around in an effort to score political points.”


    Some of Kushner’s relatives don’t buy it.

    Jacob Schulder, another cousin, also reportedly said that he does not appreciate Jared Kusher’s invoking their grandparents to justify Trump’s behavior or help advance his presidential campaign.

    “For the sake of the family name, which may have no meaning to you but still has meaning to others, please don’t invoke our grandparents in vain just so you can sleep better at night. It is self serving and disgusting,” he wrote.

    What exactly does anyone think the White House is supposed to do to stop the spread of AIDS.
    Is there a medical research lab hidden underground at 1600 PA Ave?

    Federal government can’t run with temps

    Monday
    Posted at 4:00 AM

    In at least one respect, Donald Trump’s presidency is already historic: Never before has a president left so many senior jobs vacant for so long. If his goal is to downsize the bureaucracy — not a terrible idea — then he is going about it in a spectacularly wrongheaded way.

    There are 624 senior appointed positions in the federal government that require confirmation by the Senate, a number that accounts for about 0.0001 percent of the workforce. For nearly 250 of those jobs, the White House hasn’t yet nominated anyone at all. Of the 371 candidates Trump has named for key positions, 240 have been confirmed, along with 49 lower-level nominees, for a total of 289. (By comparison, his four predecessors all had at least 400 confirmed nominees at this point.)

    Aside from being managerial malpractice, this negligence may be illegal: At least a dozen administration officials are currently serving in a temporary capacity, even though the administration hasn’t nominated anyone for the job. That violates the 1998 Federal Vacancies Reform Act, which bars the executive branch from filling jobs with acting officials for longer than 300 days without sending a nominee to the Senate. The administration has attempted to work around this rule by delegating authorities to different offices in the same agency — but those moves may be subject to legal challenge, too.

    Because duties performed by these acting officials are considered to have “no force or effect,” the administration risks jeopardizing some of its anti-regulatory priorities. Lawsuits brought under the Vacancies Act could halt, among other things, Trump’s efforts to loosen Obama-era restrictions on methane emissions on public lands and the serving of flavored milk in public schools.

    Trump has defended this delinquency by saying most of these jobs are “unnecessary.” But the majority of them were created by congressional statute — which is why Congress needs to apply more pressure by giving the Vacancies Act more teeth. Banning acting officials from drawing a salary after 300 days, or requiring that vacant offices be filled by career civil servants after the deadline passes, might do the trick.

    If the president is serious about streamlining the senior leadership of the executive branch — and it has grown by 624 percent since 1961 — he should work with Congress to identify which high-level jobs are no longer necessary. Any essential functions should be reassigned to other parts of the bureaucracy, in accordance with the law.

    By all appearances, this administration has little interest in making the bureaucracy more responsive or efficient. Instead, the president seems intent on sabotaging the effectiveness of the federal government by refusing to fill his own branch’s upper ranks. Congress and the courts shouldn’t let him get away with it.

    • The couple met in 2000 at their Mormon church while they were in college
    • 'He was never physically abusive until our honeymoon and that floored me,' Holderness told DailyMail.com
    • 'He would throw me down on the bed, put his full body weight on top of me, then grind a knee or elbow into my body, expressing rage,' she claims
    • She says the violence escalated to where Porter was choking her. ‘It was not hard enough for me to pass out but it was scary, humiliating and dehumanizing'
    • On Tuesday night, Porter's second ex-wife Jennifer Willoughby, also shared the story of her abusive marriage with DailyMail.com
    • She says he dragged her out of the shower and was verbally abusive
    • Last week DailyMail.com revealed that Porter and Hope Hicks are dating, and were seen kissing in a cab on the way back to her apartment
    • Holderness confirmed that she was interviewed by the FBI about her marriage after Porter was tapped for his current White House position and required a security clearance – which he has not received
    • Porter, 40, is considered one of the most important players in Donald Trump's daily orbit and helped him write last week's State of the Union Address
    • He denied the allegations but has now stepped down from his White House role

    Third Trump aide resigns after his security clearance was denied over a few marijuana joints – but an Obama deputy chief of staff was approved despite using weed 500 TIMES
    • George David Banks is out of a National Economic Council job after he failed a background check for a security clearance because of his past marijuana use
    • He's the third significant dismissal in the last week, following domestic violence accusations against Trump's staff secretary and a speechwriter
    • Based on standards in place during the Obama years, Banks' clearance would only have been denied if he had tried to hide it
    • One high-profile Obama deputy chief of staff, Alyssa Mastromonaco, told investigators she had gotten high more than 500 times in the previous 7 years
    • Mastromonaco was cleared, and worked side-by-side with the president

    John Kelly announces changes to security clearance protocols at the White House in the wake of Rob Porter fiasco - then flies to Florida with the president
    • White House shared a memo from the White House chief of staff with reporters
    • In it, Kelly said incoming employees are no longer granted access to the complex until their suitability for employment has been assessed
    • Kelly also said he ended the White House's practice of granting interim security clearance to new hires outside of 'extraordinary circumstances' dictated by him
    • He recommended that for future approved interim clearances, temporary clearance be granted for a period of 180 days, with a 90-day extension option
    • Called on the FBI to provide 'significant derogatory' information from background checks to the White House with a shorter lag time
    • Said 'recent events have exposed some remaining shortcomings' with processes
    • It was a read-between-the-lines reference to Porter, the disgraced Trump aide whose alleged pattern of domestic abuse is the focus of a 10-day scandal
