. . . News of White House staff secretary Rob Porterís resignation amid uncovered allegations of domestic abuse have dominated headlines for nearly three days, but on Friday, two officials ó one also in the White House, the other in the Justice Departmentó roiled Washington as well.

Friday evening, the New York Times reported that Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand, the number two official in the Russia investigation, was resigning along with her assistant. That news was followed almost immediately by reports that White House deputy chief of staff John Carroll also resigned after Politico reported Thursday that chief of staff John Kelly was dissatisfied with his performance. Carroll, CNN reported, is leaving the West Wing to lead the Office of National Drug Control Policy.

A few hours after Carrollís departure, The Washington Post reported that White House speechwriter David Sorenson had also left the administration after his ex-wife accused him of domestic abuse, making him the second Trump staffer accused of violence against women this week.

Yesterday, two high ranking officials within the Justice Department also resigned: the FBIís public affairs assistant director Mike Kortan and the DOJís counterintelligence and export control chief David Laufman.


* edit - the deputy chief of staff name should be Jim Carroll

5. Those DOJ people aren't "Trump people," but...

Politico on Laufman: "That put Laufman in charge of the Hillary Clinton email probe and aspects of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election ó an inquiry handed off last May to special counsel Robert Mueller."

His involvement in the politically motivated investigations into Hillary doesn't sound good, but don't know what to think about these guys. ??

3. JIM (NOT John) CARROLL resigned today.

Raw Story got his name wrong I think . Jim Carroll was a writer (The Basketball Diaries was about heroin addiction and growing up in NYC), poet and punk musician. I thought it was ironic that the admin's drug czar has the same name.

6. Just imagine if this had happened 8 years ago.

They'd still be screaming about in on Fox. This will be more or less be forgotten by next week.

15. I can't imagine that happening in any administration

It would have certainly been considered a national crisis - but Trump has managed to normalize the most offensive and previously unthinkable.

9. Was this all the wife beaters making a quick exit?

Domestic abuse is extremely common. I also think it may be more prevalent among Trump supporters - and Republicans in general - because of their disdain for women.

12. Or at least all the people handling classified info without a security clearance

we can hope.

Possibly a mix of wife beaters, degenerate gamblers, pedophiles, etc.

11. Republicans in charge and chaos reigns at the White House

 

They promised to destroy American government and they are doing it daily.

Grover Norquist: I don't want to abolish government. I simply want to reduce it to the size where I can drag it into the bathroom and drown it in the bathtub.

Steve Bannon: Iím a Leninist. Lenin wanted to destroy the state, and thatís my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of todayís establishment.

Dear Leader Trump: ďOne of they key problems today is that politics is such a disgrace. Good people donít go into government.Ē

Somewhere deep in the bowels of the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin is laughing his ass off.

16. Shitler and the republican party are being directed by a hostile foreign government

 

to destroy the intelligence apparatus of the USA and divide the nation with class warfare, IMO.

So they aren't destroying for the hell of it, they are on a mission.
