Top Trump Official Leaving White House In Shocking Resignation Effective Immediately

Published

on

President Trump has been setting some records and making great accomplishments in his second year as President of the United States. It’s very weird when someone leaves an administration that’s doing well, but people have their different reasons for leaving. Some people leave because they find a new opportunity that has been granted thanks to being so successful in the White House. Some leave because they’re not cut out for the job. Some might even leave because their commute is simply too tedious and if they have family members at home, then it makes perfect sense to either move closer to the White House or to find a new job. Whatever someone’s reasoning is for leaving is strictly their business. However, it does happen.

People leave jobs at the White House like they would leave a job anywhere else. Except for the Supreme Court where people like Ruth Bader Ginsburg is three days older than the entire planet and still trying to stay awake at the job.

President Trump’s team is about to be one person smaller as a possibly unexpected resignation comes to light. Even though there were rumors weeks ago that he might leave, they were just rumors and those hold no merit in politics until they’re proven to be true. Today seems to be that day when Trump’s White House ethics lawyer will resign.

His name is Stefan Passantino and there are already rumored issues with the possible resignation. Some people think he will resign today and be out by today, but others are saying he might stick it out and finish the summer. Isn’t that basically the same thing considering today is August 30th and summer is over shortly after as students return to school just after Labor Day? Any school returning before Labor Day is doing it wrong, but that’s unrelated to the issue of Passantino’s resignation.

Upon further research, I have discovered that Passantino’s last day will be Friday, August 31st. The rumors on social media were basically correct, depending on how people worded it or think of their summer. He’s staying until the end of the week, which many might consider the end of summer anyway.

NBC wrote:

“White House ethics lawyer Stefan Passantino is leaving the Trump administration, a senior White House official told NBC News Thursday.

“His last day is Friday.

“Passantino — who had been in charge of making sure White House officials complied with government ethics rules — had helped several White House officials deal with a number of ethics controversies, including a notorious March 2017 incident when Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to President Donald Trump, plugged the clothing line of Ivanka Trump on national television.

“Passantino is just the latest lawyer to depart the Trump White House.

“A day earlier, Trump announced that White House counsel Don McGahn, who cooperated with special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, would be leaving his job in the fall.

“Their departures add the growing exodus of administration officials who have left the White House — a record-setting turnover for a presidential administration.”

The Hill also added more information on the resignation of Passantino:

“The White House’s top ethics lawyer, Stefan Passantino, is leaving the Trump administration on Friday, according to NBC News, weeks after his rumored departure was first reported.

“A senior White House official confirmed Passantino’s last day to the network late Thursday.

“Passantino, the deputy White House counsel responsible for policing ethics for Trump officials, joined the administration in January 2017. He formerly served as an attorney to former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.).

“Politico reported last month that Passantino was preparing to depart from the Trump administration, as his family lives in Georgia and he has been commuting.

“The Hill has reached out to the White House for comment.

“Passantino has weathered a number of ethics scandals from top-level Trump officials regarding concerns about private flights, the improper spending of taxpayer dollars and accusations of Hatch Act violations.

“Passantino is the latest White House lawyer to leave the Trump administration.

“Trump abruptly announced on Twitter Wednesday that White House counsel Don McGahn would leave after Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s expected confirmation.”

The Independent also covered this, stating:

“The deputy White House counsel, Stefan Passantino, is reportedly to step down today just a day after it was announced the government’s top lawyer would also leave his position.

“Don McGahn, the top-ranking White House counsel, will leave by the autumn, Mr. Trump announced on Twitter. The president said: “I have worked with Don for a long time and truly appreciate his service!”

“Mr. Passantino, who is responsible for overseeing ethics issues for Donald Trump’s staff, was due to exit on Thursday, according to Bloomberg reporter Jennifer Jacobs.

“A Politico report from July also presaged Mr. Passantino’s departure, while the Washington Post reported he was due to step down on Friday.

[…]

“He told CNN’s Don Lemon: “He has a nightmare client, possibly the worst client in the history of American ethics, President Trump. Look at the damage the president has done to the reputations and the careers and the freedom of the people around him.”

Trump About To Drop Presidential Hammer On Obama For Attempting To Overtake Investigation

Published

on

...

* By

More and more is coming out about Spygate. The Obama administration tried to take over the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign, according to The Hill’s John Solomon. He covered it last night on Hannity’s show and then wrote on it extensively at The Hill. Solomon claims that the FBI began spying on members of the Trump campaign to gather the intelligence that ultimately justified the collusion investigation, weeks or even months before the FBI had a formal predicate. If true, the whole thing was cooked up and premeditated. It was indeed a pre-planned coup and President Trump is about to drop the presidential hammer on all of them.

“That’s very important. The rules say you can’t use sources until you have a predicated investigation. The predication is July 31, 2016,” Solomon told Hannity. The investigative reporter said he had sources and documents backing up his claim that he would be making public in his report in The Hill on Friday and he did just that.

Solomon started off his well-researched piece with this:

“The bridge to the Russia investigation wasn’t erected in Moscow during the summer of the 2016 election.”

“It originated earlier, 1,700 miles away in London, where foreign figures contacted Trump campaign advisers and provided the FBI with hearsay allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, bureau documents and interviews of government insiders reveal. These contacts in spring 2016 — some from trusted intelligence sources, others from Hillary Clinton supporters — occurred well before FBI headquarters authorized an official counterintelligence investigation on July 31, 2016.”

“The new timeline makes one wonder: Did the FBI follow its rules governing informants?”

A very good question and of course the answer is a resounding “no.”

Solomon stressed that informants were making contacts with the Trump officials and providing information to the FBI “much, much earlier than July 31.” Then he drops the bombshell that according to the FBI, the White House and Obama wanted to take over the whole investigation. Here is where that led on Sean Hannity’s show last night:

John Solomon: I’m putting finishing touches on a column that I think will come out tomorrow. And it will reveal two really important things. The efforts to begin targeting and reaching out to Trump campaign officials to gain intelligence on Russia that would ultimately justify the investigation began weeks and maybe months before the FBI had a formal predicate. And that’s very important the rules say you can’t use sources until you have a predicated investigation. The investigation is July 31, 2016. My sources and documents that I will be able to make public tomorrow will show that there were contacts going on by people identified as informers, informants, people who provided information began much, much earlier than July 31st. That’s the first part. The second part is as the investigation was just starting to ramp up there are internal FBI documents showing FBI agents talking about the White House trying to take over the investigation. Fears that the Justice Department were going to leak for political reasons and their own personal fear.

Sean Hannity: Slow down. When you say the White House you mean the Obama White House- they were attempting to take over the investigation.

John Solomon: That’s what these messages say.

Sean Hannity: These are FBI messages and this is the Obama White House. How high up are we talking about here?

John Solomon: We don’t know the messages are just what they are.

Solomon covers in the second part of his report the internal FBI communications between former counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, his mistress Lisa Page and others discussing how the Obama White House was trying to take over the investigation. “The words ‘the White House is running this’ are clear in the text message,” Solomon told Hannity, adding that “the FBI agents who opened this case feared that Barack Obama was weak on national security and wouldn’t do what they needed for Russia.” Wowzers. He went on to say, “The political elements of the administration were trying to intrude on the FBI investigation.”

Solomon’s report does not sync with what former Obama deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes wrote about the investigation in his new book “The World as It Is,” which is set to be published next week by Random House. Well, duh. Rhodes is lying. That’s what he is good at and has done from the beginning. In his book, Rhodes claims that Obama didn’t know there was an FBI investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible contacts with Russia until he left office. That’s just laughable. Rhodes said that “neither he nor Mr. Obama knew at that time that there was an F.B.I. investigation,” according to the New York Times, which obtained an advance copy of the book. Way to cover your collective backsides. No one believes that.

The failed novelist claims in the book that he learned about the FBI investigation from news reports after he left office. Gee, that is the same excuse Obama used multiple times during his presidency. Tell a lie often enough, these guys really think Americans are gullible and stupid. Rhodes is simply insulting our intelligence here. I wouldn’t buy his book to use as a doorstop.

No collusion between President Trump and Russia has ever been proven because it does not exist. The only ones gaining from this are Mueller and his team who are getting paid a ton to try and tie the President’s hands to keep him from doing his job. Taxpayers have wasted almost $17 million on the Russia probe since Mueller took over in 2017, according to a spending report just released by the DOJ. About $10 million was spent in the five months between October 2017 and March 2018 alone. That includes $4.5 million in hefty salaries for Mueller’s team of Trump-hating Democratic attorneys and another $5.5 million spent on random expenses.

Solomon’s report gives justification to President Trump to stop this nonsense.

Do you think Trump should swing the hammer down hard?

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
