President Donald Trump added new heat to his attacks on former FBI Director James Comey after a New York Times Friday night report on an investigation the FBI opened in the days following his firing of Comey.
Despite the fact he “disagrees” with Rep. Steve King’s (R-IA) recent racist remarks, National Republican Congressional Committee chairman Tom Emmer (R-MN) said that it’s “too early” for the committee to think about whether it will support the Iowa congressman’s reelection.
Despite his meeting with the President Thursday in which he reportedly discussed his potential role as the new White House chief of staff, the former New Jersey governor said in a statement that he asked Trump to no longer consider him for the job opening.

The President’s eldest child was full of holiday cheer at a Daily Mail holiday party in New York City as he confessed that his father is a notorious re-gifter.
“I’m the namesake, so I got re-gifted all the things that were monogrammed for him at times,” Trump Jr. said while telling the story of one Christmas when his father “may or may not” have given him a gift from the previous year. “And I’m like, ‘I know you didn’t get this,’ ‘How do you know that?’ ‘Because I gave it to you last year.’”
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford made her first public statement since the Kavanaugh hearings in September by presenting the Sports Illustrated’s Inspiration of the Year Award to Rachael Denhollander — the first woman to publicly accuse former Michigan State and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar of sexual assault.
Former Senator Al Franken, who resigned from the Senate last December after eight women accused him of sexual misconduct, posted a Thanksgiving note on his Facebook page about his “year of reflection.”
A day after expressing gratitude for himself on Thanksgiving, President Donald Trump renewed his call for “a major Border Security package, which will include funding for the Wall” and “really good criminal justice reform” in Friday morning tweets.
Soon after President Donald Trump paused his post-midterms press briefing Wednesday to yell at CNN’s Jim Acosta Wednesday, the network said it stands behind Acosta and “his fellow journalists everywhere.”
