Sarah Huckabee Sanders Leaving White House at the End of the Month

Sarah Huckabee Sanders leaving WHSarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary who fiercely defended President Trump through one of the most tumultuous periods in American politics and presided over the end of the daily White House news briefing, will step down at the end of the month.

President Trump announced her departure on Twitter, the means of communication that came to supplant the role that a White House press secretary played in previous administrations, and he expressed hope that she would run for governor in her home state of Arkansas.

U.S. Navy Scrambles After ‘Attack’ on Oil Tankers in the Gulf of Oman

Oil tankers attacked in Gulf

Two oil tankers have been rocked by explosions in the Gulf of Oman, according to reports, just one month after the U.S. blamed Iran for allegedly sabotaging four other tankers in the region.

The two tankers were allegedly hit Thursday off the coast of the United Arab Emirates—the same area where the other four tankers were supposedly targeted last month. The U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet confirmed it was assisting the two vessels after what it called a “reported attack,” without elaborating on the extent of the damage or the cause of the explosions.


Watchdog: Kellyanne Conway should be ousted from White House job over repeated political remarks

kellyanne Conway should be removed:WatchdogKellyanne Conway, a senior aide to President Donald Trump, should be removed from office after repeatedly violating a federal law that prohibits political speech in her official capacity, according to the Office of Special Counsel.

Conway is a "repeat offender" of the Hatch Act for disparaging Democratic presidential candidates and for two television interviews where she spoke for and against candidates for U.S. Senate in Alabama during 2017, according to the Office of Special Counsel.

But Steven Groves, a White House deputy press secretary, said the law cited by the Office of Special Counsel is unclear and is applied unevenly. He said the office's decisions seem influenced by media pressure and liberal organizations.

TVNL Comment: No one is ever held to the letter of the law in the Trump Circus. Don't hold your breath for Kellyanne to be removed.



Michael Flynn hires fierce FBI critic as new lawyer

Flynn hires FOX commentator as lawyer

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn has a new attorney: former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell, one of the earliest and fiercest critics of the Justice Department and the FBI’s investigation into a potential conspiracy between President Trump’s campaign and Russia.

The move appears to signal a shift in posture, if not in strategy: Powell, a former Justice Department attorney who has written extensively about overzealous prosecutors, has claimed that Flynn was spied on as part of a “set-up” by the FBI, and that his entire case should be “dismissed,” taking a far more aggressive public stance than Flynn’s previous lawyers, Robert Kelner and Stephen Anthony, ever did.

Flynn, who fired Kelner and Anthony last week, awaits sentencing for lying to the FBI about his conversations with former Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak during the transition period. The current federal court docket still doesn’t list a lawyer for Flynn.



‘I think I’d take it’: In ABC interview, Trump says he would listen if foreigners offered dirt on opponents

Trump says FBI Director is wrong; he is right

President Donald Trump may not alert the FBI if foreign governments offered damaging information against his 2020 rivals during the upcoming presidential race, he said, despite the deluge of investigations stemming from his campaign’s interactions with Russians during the 2016 campaign.

Asked by ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in the Oval Office on Wednesday whether his campaign would accept such information from foreigners -- such as China or Russia -- or hand it over the FBI, Trump said, “I think maybe you do both.”

Authorities 'looking into' pastor's church sermon calling for execution of LGBTQ people

pastor calls for execution of LGBTQ

A controversial sermon by a Tennessee church pastor calling for the execution of LGBTQ people who is also a detective in the Knox County Sheriff’s Office has prompted authorities to further investigate.

All Scripture Baptist Church pastor Grayson Fritts, who earlier this month was taken off active duty with the sheriff's department as he waits for a county buyout offer, said in an hour-long sermon that members of the LGBTQ community should be “put to death,” referring to them as “freaks” and “animals,” according to CBS 8 WVLT.

"Here's how it should work, it shouldn't work when we go out and we enforce the laws, because the Bible says the powers that be are ordained of God and God has instilled the power of civil government to send the police in 2019 out to these LGBT freaks and arrest them," Fritts said in his June 2nd sermon.



Hope Hicks just agreed to testify about the Mueller probe, which is a huge win for Congress

Hope Hicks to testify
  • Former White House communications director Hope Hicks has agreed to testify before the House Judiciary Committee next week.
  • Hicks is the first material witness connected to the former special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe to appear before the panel.
  • Her decision is especially noteworthy given that the White House instructed her — and all other witnesses who have been called to testify regarding the Mueller report — not to comply with the committee's subpoena for documents and testimony.
