Career official says Trump administration ‘commandeered’ Bolton book review for political purposes

Career election: Bolton review inappropriate

A career government official responsible for reviewing former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s book manuscript for classified information accused the White House on Tuesday of hijacking the process in what appeared to be a politically motivated effort to block the book's publication.

The claims contained in a scathing 18-page letter from an attorney for former NSC official Ellen Knight could upend the ongoing legal battles over Bolton’s actions in the lead-up to the release in June of his unflattering-to-the-president, tell-all tome over the strenuous objection of Trump White House officials.

Jusge rejects DOJ attempt to stop McCabe suit

What happened: A federal judge on Thursday rejected the Justice Department's attempt to dismiss a lawsuit brought by former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe alleging that he was fired in 2018 as an act of political retribution at the behest of President Donald Trump.

U.S. District Court Judge Randy Moss ruled that McCabe is entitled to discovery in his effort to prove that his removal by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions was prompted by Trump's repeated and public desire to damage him, meaning the administration's private discussions could enter the public record.

CIA clamps down on flow of Russia intelligence to White House

CIA clamping down on intel about Russian interference

The CIA has made it harder for intelligence about Russia to reach the White House, stoking fears among current and former officials that information is being suppressed to please a president known to erupt in anger whenever he is confronted with bad news about Moscow.

Nine current and former officials said in interviews that CIA Director Gina Haspel has become extremely cautious about which, if any, Russia-related intelligence products make their way to President Donald Trump’s desk. Haspel also has been keeping a close eye on the agency’s fabled “Russia House,” whose analysts she often disagrees with and sometimes accuses of purposefully misleading her.

Major boost for Trump as Romney backs vote on supreme court nomination

Romney boost for TrumpDonald Trump received a major boost on Tuesday when Republican senator Mitt Romney announced his support for considering the president’s supreme court nominee.

The move appeared to all but kill off Democrats’ hopes of blocking a successor to liberal justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died last week aged 87. Two Republican senators have indicated their opposition to confirming a nominee before the November election but Democrats need two more.

Romney, a former presidential nominee who was the sole Republican who voted to remove Trump from office at his impeachment trial, was seen as a make-or-break swing vote. He said in a statement: “The constitution gives the president the power to nominate and the Senate the authority to provide advice and consent on supreme court nominees.
