    John Dowd, a personal attorney to President Trump, resigned his post Thursday amid a shake-up in the president’s legal team as Trump has sought more firepower to deal with the special counsel’s Russia investigation. The resignation came Thursday, according to three people familiar with the decision. Dowd declined to comment. Dowd’s departure was a largely mutual decision made after the president lost confidence in his ability to handle special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation and Dowd became frustrated with Trump’s recent efforts to bring on new attorneys, they said. In recent weeks, Dowd clashed with the president, including an...

    John Dowd, President Trump’s lead lawyer handling the special counsel probe into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, has stepped down, according to reports on Thursday. Dowd had considered stepping down in the past over his inability to control Trump’s outbursts, The New York Times reported. Rumors ran rampant this week that a legal team shake-up was in the works. Trump added former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova, a regular Fox News guest, to his team earlier in the week.

    The day before the White House announced the departure of its communications director, President Donald Trump’s campaign spokeswoman said a shake-up is necessary. “I think there should be a shake-up at the White House starting at the very top,” Katrina Pierson said Monday on Fox News. Pierson took to Twitter on Tuesday to tweet a clip of her Fox News appearance with a not-so-subtle suggestion: “I have an idea. How about we try an actual TRUMP ADMINISTRATION.”

    New round of chaos, or no big deal? For a little over a week, we’ve been hearing of an impending shake-up in the Trump White House. Allegedly, the President is furious about leaks, incompetence, the general perception (or reality) that his agenda seems to have stalled if not completely derailed. Are things that dire? Probably not. However, we’d be lying if we tried to pretend that President Trump has been enjoying a smooth month. To put it mildly, things have been a bit “clunky.” So, yes, it’s likely that his administration is headed for some personnel changes.

    Conservative Review ^ | 04/07/2017 | Robert Eno
    After a tumultuous first 75 days in office, there are reports that President Donald Trump is looking at a major shakeup of his inner circle. Mike Allen, reporting at Axios, reported that both Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon may be out. Priebus as chief of staff has been a mistake from the beginning. Any schadenfreude conservatives may feel over this development should be tempered by thoughts of what may come next. The four names reported by Allen are all creatures of the swamp Trump professes to want to drain. With the failure to repeal Obamacare marring the start of Trump’s...

    After GOP establishment forces inside President Donald Trump’s White House forced out National Security Adviser retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, sources close to the president confirm to Breitbart News there is serious doubt as to whether this early administration shake-up will also see the exit of White House chief of staff Reince Priebus. Specifically, multiple sources close to President Trump with internal knowledge of White House operations told Breitbart News on Monday night that the buck stops with Priebus when it comes to the botched rollout of the executive order temporarily banning most travel to the United States from...

    Hillary Clinton is weighing a staff shakeup after Tuesday's New Hampshire primary, according to Politico. Both Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, are unhappy with the direction of the campaign's messaging and digital operations and had been considering changing staff and strategy after the first four voting states. But a source told Politico that the Clintons now want to consider such changes earlier. Clinton defeated Bernie Sanders by a razor-thin margin in last week's Iowa caucuses, but the latest polls show her trailing Sanders by double digits in New Hampshire, which will hold its primary Tuesday. "The Clintons...

    As the Daily Caller reports, the continually sagging ratings at MSNBC, particularly in the afternoon and evening, have Phil Griffin looking at some changes… potentially big ones. Some of the most disappointing numbers have come from their latest additions and shifts in the evening lineup. But who is on the chopping block? Considering a number of their shows are unwatchable — here’s looking at you Chris Hayes and Joy Reid — it’s painfully obvious that MSNBC’s lineup is in need of a serious makeover.According to TheWrap, Hayes’ crappy ratings are even bringing down those of his TV mentor, Rachel...
  • Obama to nominate Army Gen. Rodriguez to lead AFRICOM (shakeup; flashback)

    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will nominate Army Gen. David Rodriguez to succeed Gen. Carter Ham as commander of U.S. Africa Command and Marine Lt. Gen. John Paxton to succeed Gen. Joseph Dunford as assistant commandant of the Marine Corps, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced Thursday. Both appointments must be confirmed by the Senate. Rodriguez is the commander of U.S. Army Forces Command and has served in a “variety of key leadership roles on the battlefield,” Panetta said. He’s “a proven leader” who oversaw coalition and Afghan forces during the surge in Afghanistan, and “was the key architect of the...

    Lawmakers reach agreement on measure after 33-hour session Madison - Ending a grueling session that stretched almost 33 hours, Assembly lawmakers passed on a voice vote a bill to overhaul the board of the Milwaukee Area Technical College, sending the measure to Gov. Scott Walker. It put a gloss of bipartisanship over a session that saw the most conflict in the Legislature in recent memory. Democrats had made a de facto filibuster through the night to block the bill, calling the changes an unneeded power grab. But the Republican majority in the Assembly refused to set the bill aside, saying...

    HAVANA – The ouster of Cuba's two most prominent younger leaders leaves more doubt than ever about who will guide the country once the Castro brothers and their gray-haired revolutionary contemporaries are gone. President Raul Castro is 77. His hand-picked No. 2, Jose Ramon Machado Ventura, is a year his senior. And there are no obvious next-generation successors in the ranks of mostly obscure communist party officials, military officers and bureaucrats who were suddenly promoted this week in Cuba's largest leadership shake-up in decades. "This is the old guard, most of them are very traditional hard-liners," said Uva de Aragon,...

  • After Shake-up, McCain Ground Game Revs Up

    A month after a campaign shake-up that reshaped John McCain’s field operation, aides to the Republican nominee are touting organizational changes they say are bringing them closer to Barack Obama’s sprawling effort. McCain staffers concede they’ll never match the depth and breadth of Obama. And given the head start the Arizona senator enjoyed upon winning the nomination in early March, these are improvements that should have been in place months ago instead of weeks before the GOP convention. Still, the McCain campaign is pointing to a series of metrics they say represent marked progress in an operation that many Republicans...

    The classic World War II-era poster reminded talkative dock workers that "loose lips sink ships." Well, loose nukes present an even more imposing problem, one with continent-cracking possibilities. Last week, when Defense Secretary Robert Gates requested and received the resignations of Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne and U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Michael Moseley, Gates' office cited as a reason a Pentagon investigation of lax standards in Air Force oversight of nuclear weapons. One incident involved a USAF bomber with cruise missiles over-flying a wide swath of the United States -- and the crew didn't know the weapons...
