    White House chief of staff John Kelly and White House national security adviser John Bolton hurled expletives at one another during a loud argument outside the Oval Office on Thursday. The exchange between the two was so heated, White House aides were concerned that either Kelly or Bolton would depart their posts immediately, Bloomberg reports. Sources said the dispute began over a disagreement on how to handle the surge in border crossings, and Bolton was critical of how Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was handling her job. President Trump, who earlier in the day threatened to “close our southern border”...

    White House chief of staff John Kelly and national security adviser John Bolton got into a heated, profanity-laced shouting match outside the Oval Office on Thursday, according to multiple reports. CNN reported that the two men clashed over immigration policy in the wake of a government report that found a record number of migrant families illegally crossed the U.S. border in September. Bloomberg reported that the incident led some White House aides to wonder whether one of the senior officials might immediately resign in anger. Neither individual is expected to resign, however, and President Trump is aware of the dispute,...

    Full header: John Kelly Called Elizabeth Warren ‘An Impolite Arrogant Woman’ In Email After Trump Travel Ban Conversation. White House Chief of Staff John Kelly last year called Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren an “impolite arrogant woman” in an email to an aide after taking a phone call with her regarding President Trump’s travel ban. The email from Feb. 8, 2017, obtained and published on Thursday by Buzzfeed as a part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, was written to Kevin Carroll, Kelly’s then-senior counselor at the Department of Homeland Security, where Kelly was serving as secretary. “Absolutely most insulting...

    The White House on Monday labeled Bob Woodward "reckless" and "careless" after some administration officials refuted claims attributed to them in his new book "Fear: Trump in the White House," ratcheting up its war of words with the Watergate reporter. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also didn't rule out a lawsuit against Woodward. "A number of people have come out and said Woodward never even reached out to corroborate statements attributed to them, which seems incredibly reckless for a book to make such outrageous claims to not even take the time to get a $10 fact-checker to call...

    Longtime journalist Bob Woodward said Monday that Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly “are not telling the truth” when they deny making disparaging statements about President Donald Trump attributed to them in his new book, “Fear.” Kelly is quoted calling Trump “an idiot,” and Mattis is quoted saying Trump has the understanding of “a fifth or sixth-grader,” but they’ve said they didn’t make those statements. Woodward, asked on Monday on NBC’s “Today” show about their denials, said, “They are not telling the truth.” He said “these are political statements to protect their jobs.” The...

    Carl Bernstein on Tuesday called on White House chief of staff John Kelly to resign and submit congressional testimony about what he has seen during his time in President Trump's orbit. The call from the veteran journalist comes following the release of a bombshell book about the Trump administration written by his old partner, Bob Woodward. "It would seem to me that General Kelly, in the interest of the country, needs to resign and with a statement that says, 'The presidency can no longer be entrusted to this man,' " Bernstein said on CNN after reviewing the contents of the...

    The White House on Sunday shot back at Omarosa Manigault Newman’s secret recording of her dismissal last year, saying it “proves” her “lack of character and integrity.” “The very idea a staff member would sneak a recording device into the White House Situation Room, shows a blatant disregard for our national security – and then to brag about it on national television further proves the lack of character and integrity of this disgruntled former White House employee,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Sunday evening.Earlier Sunday Manigault Newman revealed her secret recording of her termination by White House Chief of Staff...

    Former short-term White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman is attempting to stir up interest in a new book by delivering audio that she secretly recorded in the White House situation room when she was fired by Chief of Staff John Kelly. Ms. Manigault released the audio to NBC for use in a Sunday broadcast of Meet the Press with Chuck Todd. There is a strong possibility Ms. Manigault has committed several violations of federal law with a secret electronic recording within a SCIF (Situation Room); however, any action therein would only further provide fuel for her already discredited self-promotion. The...

    Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Thursday a meeting between a bipartisan group of House and Senate leaders and intelligence and law enforcement officials is a “farce” because the disclosure of classified information should be limited to the so-called “Gang of Eight” — a collection of Senate and House leaders who traditionally receive the briefings on sensitive intelligence matters. Two intelligence briefings are scheduled for Thursday afternoon to discuss the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. It is said to include details about an FBI informant who contacted members of the...

Devin Nunes, R-Calif., have sought unsuccessfully to see certain documents on the FBI's probe of possible Trump...

    White House chief of staff John F. Kelly hit back at a media report Monday that accused him of calling President Trump an “idiot.” “I spend more time with the president than anyone else and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship,” Mr. Kelly said in a statement. “He always knows where I stand and he and I both know this story is total BS.” NBC News, citing current and former White House officials, reported that Mr. Kelly has referred to the president as an “idiot” multiple times and views himself as the savior of the country.
