First Daughter Ivanka Trump Gets West Wing Office

WASHINGTON — Cementing her role as a powerful White House influence, Ivanka Trump is working out of a West Wing office and will get access to classified information, though she is not technically serving as a government employee, according to an attorney for the first daughter.

Since President Donald Trump took office, his eldest daughter has been a visible presence in the White House, where her husband, Jared Kushner, already serves as a senior adviser. On Friday, she participated in a meeting on vocational training with the president and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Jamie Gorelick, an attorney and ethics adviser for Ivanka Trump, said Monday that the first daughter will not have an official title, but will get a West Wing office, government-issued communications devices and security clearance to access classified information. Gorelick said Ivanka Trump would follow the ethics rules that apply to government employees.

A person with knowledge of Ivanka Trump's thinking, who requested anonymity to discuss private conversations, said she believes she can offer more independent perspective to her father by not serving as a White House staffer.

Get the hell out of here with this bullshit.

If you're too afraid of a rules change to invoke it, then it may as well not even be there. And as much as it would fuck us if the GOP began ushering in one uber conservative justice after another with a simple majority vote, those tables will turn -- in 2 years, 4 years, 6 years, 8 years, however long it takes -- someday, there will be another Democratic president and a Democratic Senate majority with a SCOTUS appointment or two on their hands, and at that point you can just bring in all the liberal firebrands you want.

Certainly we shouldn’t have left. We should never ever have left,” Trump told Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi at the White House. “And a vacuum was created, and we discussed what happened.”

Bennet just got uncontroversially reelected and managed to win in the Tea Party wave, he shouldn't be worried about reelection. If he's just going to do the Republican's job for them, he should probably switch parties.

In Louisville tonight, Pres. Trump says he can't wait to finish health care and get to trade. "Oh, I'm looking fwd to these trade deals."

Thing 2

Mark Meadows said it's clear negotiations are OVER on ObamaCare repeal and it won't have the votes to pass Thursday.

So, no major legislation will be passed in this session.

You kind of undercut your opposition to a SCOTUS choice when you introduce said SCOTUS choice at his confirmation hearing.

Apparently not

The 40-member Freedom Caucus will not take a formal stance against the bill, but Meadows said he's confident that there are enough "no" votes within his caucus to prevent the measure from passing.

Yes he did. How exactly is it that they are exactly quantifying the decrease in illegal immigration? Seems like that would be awfully tough to do accurately especially from one month to the next.

Kind of a shame, because Tomi Lahren was actually in the right with her statement. It's hard to justify being "small government" and then want them legislating who you can love and what people can do to their bodies. I imagine a lot of her target demographic--Conservative Millenials, largely male--probably agree with her. This is going to hurt Conservatism going forward, and I'm completely okay with that...

Yeah, I won't get too excited until it actually fails in the floor vote, or Ryan withdraws the bill or something. Can't trust the Republicans as far as you can throw them.

Ryan has huge balls to keep the scheduled vote Thursday after the negative reaction and changes made not fixing the main problems with the bill. I continue to be baffled by the position he's putting his party in. Is polarization really so strong that after getting fucked over people will still vote Republican in 2018 and 2020?
