White House physician Ronny Jackson will not return to his role as the president’s personal physician, according to two senior administration officials, after a string of allegations caused the Navy rear admiral to withdraw his nomination last week to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Trump demands loyalty oath from employeesPresident Trump has reportedly scrutinized and demanded loyalty from people up for administration positions after they criticized him during the campaign, according to The Washington Post.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions wanted Sarah Isgur Flores as “his top spokeswoman,” but Flores reportedly had to “kowtow” to Trump personally before getting the gig.

House chaplain’s mysterious firing triggers uproar

House chaplain's mysterious dismissal

The mysterious firing of the House chaplain morphed into a full-on political firestorm for Republicans Friday as Democrats forced a floor vote on the issue and Catholics on both sides of the aisle said they weren’t satisfied with the reasons given for his ouster.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) tried to quell the controversy Friday morning by addressing his decision to fire Father Patrick Conroy during a private GOP conference meeting. Ryan said Conroy's ouster wasn’t politically motivated, as some have speculated. He said it came after complaints from multiple members about how the Jesuit priest wasn’t meeting their “pastoral needs,” as several Republican lawmakers exiting the meeting put it.

Lawyer Who Was Said to Have Dirt on Clinton Had Closer Ties to Kremlin Than She Let On

Lawyer at Trump Tower meeting had close ties to KremlinThe Russian lawyer who met with Trump campaign officials in Trump Tower in June 2016 on the premise that she would deliver damaging information about Hillary Clinton has long insisted she is a private attorney, not a Kremlin operative trying to meddle in the presidential election.

White House Knew About Rob Porter Allegations A Year Ago: FBI Letter

Rob Porter abuse alerted WH in March, 2017The FBI told the White House a year ago ― and at least twice thereafter ― that former staff secretary Rob Porter allegedly abused his ex-wives, according to a letter to Congress that challenges the administration’s official timeline.

On Thursday, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the top Democrat on the House oversight committee, released the April 13 letter from Gerald Roberts Jr., assistant director of the FBI’s security division. The bureau, which conducts background checks on White House employees, submitted a file detailing the spousal abuse to White House counsel Donald McGahn in March 2017, the letter says. That was nearly a year before Porter’s resignation.
