    07.31.17 Anthony Scaramucci RESIGNS as White House Communications Director Comes less than a week after hiring JULY 31, 2017 Washington, DC (ABC/WBEN) Anthony Scaramucci resigns as White House Communications Director. This comes the same day John Kelly was sworn in as Chief of Staff. Sources tell ABC Scaramucci resigned, asking to be redeployed at the Export Import Bank as chief strategy officer. Scaramucci had not been on the job less than a week. It may be most memorable for an expletive-laden conversation with a New Yorker reporter that disparaged other members of the Trump team.

    Europe was rocked again last night after the latest populist surge against Brussels. The Italian prime minister was swept from power after calling a referendum on constitutional reforms, which became a vote on confidence in his government. Matteo Renzi resigned shortly after exit polls indicated a clear defeat, saying: 'I accept all responsibility for this loss. I'll say it out loud.' The result is a further landmark victory for populist movements, following Britain's vote for Brexit and Donald Trump's election win in the US. Mr Renzi's opponent Beppe Grillo had urged voters to 'go with your gut not your brain'...

Varoufakis said he was told shortly after the voters rejected Sunday's referendum regarding demands by international creditors to impose further austerity measures in exchange for a bailout package for its bankrupt economy, that the other eurozone finance ministers and Greece's other creditors would prefer he not attend the ministers' meetings. Varoufakis issued an announcement saying Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras had judged that Varoufakis' resignation "might help achieve a deal" and that he was leaving...

    Hillary Clinton ally David Brock on Monday resigned from the board of a pro-Clinton super-PAC, according to a letter obtained by Politico, accusing it of leaking information about other pro-Clinton groups. The move is a sign of fighting among the network of pro-Clinton groups, the kind of strife that plagued the Clinton campaign in 2008 but that allies were trying to avoid this time around. Brock is resigning from the board of Priorities USA Action, and his letter claims that officials there leaked information to The New York Times about the fundraising practices of two pro-Clinton groups founded by Brock:...
