His departure from the high-pressure job comes as President Trump and his Republican allies have stepped up attacks on the Justice Department, the FBI and special counsel Robert S. Mueller III for their handling of the Russia probe. ďItís tough...

    As Congressional Democrats scurry for cover in the wake of the growing scandal surrounding IRS harassment of tea party and conservative groups, President Obama announced on Wednesday that acting IRS chief, Steven T. Miller would resign. As with Benghazi and seemingly everything else these days, Obama claims to have known nothing about it. Too much time at the golf course no doubt. But the dam is bursting on this story. Every day the number of affected groups grows as more and more is uncovered. Today it was revealed for example that the decades-old Leadership Institute was audited in 2011. To...

    A Washington attorney suing the Obama administration for access to alias emails sent by EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson claims that a recent decision by the Justice Department to release thousands of those emails next month contributed to her resigning Thursday. Jackson, in a brief written statement, said Thursday she is leaving the EPA after four years on the job, for "new challenges, time with my family and new opportunities to make a difference." The agency did not offer an explanation. But Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said

    "I know when it's time to pass the ball for victory," soon-to-be-former Governor Sarah Palin says at a press conference with her family, standing before a picturesque river and seaplane. She says she's looking forward to the swearing in of Lt. Governor Sean Parnell. "All I can ask is that you trust me with this decision," she says. "I cannot millions of dollars and time go to waste just so I can remain as governor of Alaska. "This decision has been in the works for a while. It comes after a great deal of prayer and deliberation." She said when...

    Recently I heard one of the female liberal talk show hosts on National Public Radio whining that Bush was appointing people to his second-term Cabinet that thought like he did. Who does she expect him to appoint: Hillary and Bill? I would like to talk about the makeup of Bush's new Cabinet, but first I would like to explore the negative spin the liberal media is putting on the number of "resignations" from Bush's inner circle. I put the word resignations in quotation marks, because any astute observer of the Washington scene knows that government officials at this level seldom...

    Arafat 'tells aides' he is resigned to being expelled by Israel By Inigo Gilmore in Jerusalem (Filed: 14/09/2003) Israel remained defiant in the face of mounting international opposition to the expulsion of Yasser Arafat yesterday as the Palestinian leader told allies that he is resigned to an imminent attack on his Ramallah headquarters. Followers of Yasser Arafat raise their rifles "Ultimately Arafat is resigning himself to the idea that he is going to be expelled," said a senior Palestinian official. "If there is another big bomb in Israel he believes Israel might use this as an excuse to move ahead...

    So long, Jack Charles L. "Jack" Pritchard dropped one on the Bush administration this week by quitting his job as special envoy on North Korea to join the liberal Brookings Institution, days before the next round of talks on the North Korean nuclear dispute. The implicit message in the abrupt departure was that Mr. Pritchard disagreed with the current policy. The special envoy was viewed within the administration as a "Clintonista" who favored the former president's appeasement approach to North Korea. He even went on the now-infamous October 2000 visit to North Korea by Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright,...
