Mark Meadows resigning from Congress to become Trump’s chief of staff

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., will resign from Congress on Monday to become President Donald Trump’s chief of staff.

Meadows’ former communications director Ben Williamson confirmed to CNBC in an email that he has “moved to the White House to serve as senior advisor to White House Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows.”

Multiple outlets reported that Meadows’ first official day as Trump’s chief of staff will begin Tuesday. CNN reported that his resignation from Congress will take effect at 5 p.m. ET on Monday, citing an aide to Meadows.

Meadows will succeed Mick Mulvaney, who had served as acting chief of staff since December 2018 along with being the Director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Axios: Mark Meadows considers new White House press secretary

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows has privately discussed bringing on Pentagon spokesperson Alyssa Farah or Trump campaign spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany as a new White House press secretary, two sources familiar with the talks tell Axios.

Why it matters: Meadows' start on Tuesday as Trump's new chief presents a chance to overhaul a press shop that's kept a low profile since President Trump ended the tradition of daily press secretary briefings.

Stephanie Grisham, who's held the post of White House press secretary and communications director since last July, has never held a formal daily briefing — a regular practice that ended under her predecessor Sarah Sanders.

It's not clear whether Meadows intends to replace Grisham or to bring in a press secretary to supplement her communications director role — and whether he intends to resume regular briefings on topics beyond the coronavirus.

Trump selects White House lawyer for coronavirus inspector general

President Trump announced Friday that he has selected a member of the White House Counsel's office to serve as the inspector general overseeing the dispersement of hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funds as part of the coronavirus relief package.

Trump has tapped Brian Miller, who currently serves as a special assistant to the president and senior associate counsel in the White House Counsel's office, to serve as the Special Inspector General for Pandemic Recovery (SIGPR).

The new position, under the Department of the Treasury, is tasked with tracking loans, loan guarantees and other expenditures made by the department. It was created as part of the $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief bill and is authorized for five years.

The White House noted that Miller previously served as inspector general for the General Services Administration for nearly a decade and has served in other high-profile federal positions, including within the Department of Justice as senior counsel to the deputy attorney general.

Trump Fires Inspector General Who Sounded Alarm On Ukraine Call

Rep. Adam Schiff slams the “dead of night” decision to gut the intelligence community’s independence by firing Michael Atkinson.


President Donald Trump has notified the Senate Intelligence Committee that he is firing Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the U.S. intelligence community who was the first to alert Congress to an urgent whistleblower complaint about Trump’s phone call with Ukraine’s president last year. ...

Trump notified the Senate committee of his intention to fire Atkinson and remove him from his post as inspector general of U.S. intelligence agencies, which will be effective 30 days from Friday, according to congressional officials and a copy of Trump’s notification in a letter obtained by several media outlets.

“As is the case with regard to other positions where I, as President, have the power of appointment ... it is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as inspectors general,” Trump wrote. “That is no longer the case with regard to this Inspector General.” ...

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) called the “dead of night decision” a “blatant attempt to gut the independence of the Intelligence community and retaliate against those who dare to expose presidential wrongdoing.”

Michael Atkinson turned out to be heroic in these times of Trump, following the law and staying true to his ethical responsibilities. But I seriously do not know what was going through his mind when he decided taking a position in this maladministration in the first place. #ETTD. I hope he finds employment in the private sector and makes a lot of money. And I hope this experience has opened his eyes and his initial decision making will be better for his clients than it was for himself.
I love the poorly educated!!!

US watchdog vows 'aggressive' oversight after intel official fired

The country’s top federal watchdog vowed to maintain “aggressive” oversight of the government after President Trump fired the intelligence community inspector general.

Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department’s inspector general and the chairman of the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency, praised Michael Atkinson, the ousted intelligence official, and said he and his colleagues would continue his work.

“Inspector General Atkinson is known throughout the Inspector General community for his integrity, professionalism, and commitment to the rule of law and independent oversight,” Horowitz said. “The Inspector General Community will continue to conduct aggressive independent oversight of the agencies that we oversee.”

Burr just issued statement praising Atkinson but not criticizing the firing or Trump.
"Like any political appointee, the Inspector General serves at the behest of the Executive. ... the IG must be allowed to conduct his or her work independent of internal or external pressure.”

Grassley statement says Congress needs more answers. “Congress has been crystal clear that written reasons must be given when IGs are removed for a lack of confidence. More details are needed from the administration.”

Trump removes independent watchdog tasked with overseeing coronavirus emergency funds

https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/07/politics ... index.html
President Donald Trump has removed the acting Inspector General for the Defense Department, Glenn Fine, as chair of the newly created Pandemic Response Accountability Committee, which is tasked with overseeing $2 trillion in emergency coronavirus funding.

Late last month, a group of independent federal watchdogs tapped Fine, a career official, to lead the group tasked with preventing "waste, fraud, and abuse" in the use of coronavirus relief money.

A Defense Department spokeswoman did not explain why Fine was removed from the acting inspector general position, but she did explain that it meant he was no longer eligible to stay on the accountability committee, which is limited to inspector generals and acting inspector generals.

"The DoD OIG is still part of the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee," spokesperson Dwrena K. Allen told CNN, using the acronym for the defense department and the inspector general position. "Mr. Fine is no longer serving as the Chair because he is no longer serving in an acting IG capacity."
Fine is a career official. Dare I imagine that Trump might want a sycophant who won't get in the way when Trump steals some of that money for himself?

Acting secretary of the Navy resigns after calling ousted aircraft carrier captain 'stupid'
By Jim Sciutto, Barbara Starr, Zachary Cohen and Ryan Browne, CNN
Updated 2238 GMT (0638 HKT) April 7, 2020

Washington (CNN)Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly resigned on Tuesday, a day after leaked audio revealed he called the ousted commander of the USS Theodore Roosevelt "stupid" in an address to the ship's crew.

Modly's resignation comes a little more than a week after Capt. Brett Crozier, the then-commanding officer of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, sent a memo warning of coronavirus spreading among the sailors on the aircraft carrier. The memo leaked and Modly subsequently removed Crozier from command. The former acting secretary flew to Guam to address the ship, insulting Crozier to thousands of sailors who had given their former captain a standing ovation as he left the ship days before.

The audio of that address was leaked to media outlets and the uproar over Modly's remarks -- calling Crozier "too naive or too stupid" to be in command of the aircraft carrier and saying that going outside of the chain-of-command with his memo represented a "betrayal" -- quickly made his position untenable.
:snippity:
Defense Secretary Mark Esper said in a letter that he accepted Modly's resignation Tuesday morning, confirming CNN's earlier reporting that Modly had resigned.

So an undersecretary of the Army replaces Modly. Now, my brother was a sailor and my other brother was in the Army both during Vietnam. The jousting between them led me to believe neither service respects the other. How is this Army grunt going to order sailors around?

Trump's New Chief of Staff Rattles White House in Crisis Mode

President Donald Trump’s new chief of staff, Mark Meadows, has escalated tensions in the White House with a swift series of staff changes that have drawn complaints from some in the West Wing about his management style, according to people familiar with the matter.

Trump changed his top aide last month just as the U.S. coronavirus outbreak began to accelerate. After a slow start -- Meadows didn’t resign his North Carolina House seat until the end of March -- the new chief of staff kicked off his tenure by ousting a top legislative liaison last week and then, on Monday, replacing the White House press secretary, Stephanie Grisham.

Meadows brought in Trump campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany as press secretary and also installed two loyalists in the communications operation, Pentagon spokeswoman Alyssa Farah and his top congressional aide, Ben Williamson.

Other aides may depart in the near future, including the chief of domestic policy, Joe Grogan, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Daily Beast
Trump Taps Once-Exiled 29-Year-Old Aide to Help Him Purge Enemies and Watchdogs From Government

John McEntee is the ultimate Trump loyalist. And now he’s been tasked with making the administration as committed to the president as he is.


Even in the midst of a global pandemic and economic collapse, President Donald Trump is charging ahead on his mission to purge his administration of watchdogs who are tasked with exposing waste, fraud, and abuse. And as he goes about this mission, he’s leaning on a 29-year-old loyalist once exiled from the Trump administration for a reported gambling problem, as well as a cadre of conservative firebrands who have fed his paranoia that government careerists are trying to destroy him.

Early this month, Trump fired Michael Atkinson, inspector general of the intelligence community, who had been asked to handle the anonymous whistleblower complaint last year that triggered the president’s impeachment at the hands of House Democrats. On Monday, the president used his daily coronavirus press briefing at the White House to take swipes at Christi Grimm, a Department of Health and Human Services inspector general, after being asked about her report documenting the “severe shortages of testing supplies” in certain U.S. hospitals during the coronavirus crisis. On Tuesday, the news broke that Trump had replaced Glenn Fine, an acting Pentagon inspector general who had been assigned to oversee $2 trillion in coronavirus relief money.

Those actions are just the beginning of Trump’s plans to remake much of the federal government by appointing Trump-supportive partisans, including to inspector general posts, four administration sources say. And they reflect the degree to which the president’s obsession with purging and denigrating his perceived enemies within the government continues to animate him, even as the White House struggles to respond to the coronavirus outbreaks and the increasing number of deaths throughout the country.

For the task, Trump has increasingly leaned on the White House Presidential Personnel Office (PPO), headed by recently rehired Trump aide John McEntee. In the past two months, Trump and McEntee have discussed the topic of replacing inspectors general—a number of whose nominations require approval by the Senate—along with various other positions in the federal government. The president has made clear that he is adamant about quickly filling those posts (there are more than 70 such watchdogs across the government) with those more submissive to him and ousting appointees he often baselessly lambasts as “corrupt,” according to a senior administration official.

McEntee, Trump’s former presidential body man and a 2016 campaign veteran, was fired two years ago from his White House job by then-Chief of Staff John Kelly, reportedly for an excessive online gambling habit and related tax issues that had hindered him from getting a proper security clearance.

ABC News
Mark Green, Trump's top foreign aid chief, departs with warning against cuts and US 'stepping back'

Green led the U.S. Agency for International Development for nearly three years.


Mark Green's last day couldn't have come at a worse time.

The top U.S. official for foreign aid departed Friday as the world struggles to contain the coronavirus pandemic, President Donald Trump threatened to cut funding to the World Health Organization, and governments around the world battle over medical supplies in an increasingly every-country-for-itself mentality.

Amid those forces, Green, the administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID, had a strong warning that could contrast with his boss -- foreign assistance is "important" and that "especially in times of challenge, we need to keep those investments, those tools, and that leadership."

"I believe that America is a force for good, and we must be. I don't believe that the world is better if we do step back or recede," he said Friday in an interview, adding that while his message is for "all of us," "As a Republican, I aim it at my own party," especially.

WaPo - Joe Davidson: Vacancies have hindered the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus

As President Trump tries to defend his sluggish response to the coronavirus pandemic, 18 nongovernmental organizations are pressing against agency vacancies that can hinder federal action.

“We fear that the leadership vacuum in several federal agencies is weakening the nation’s response to the coronavirus pandemic,” the organizations said in a letter to the Republican and Democratic leadership of 14 Senate committees.

“The nation needs highly-effective federal agencies especially at this time of crisis,” the letter said. “Unfortunately, we continue to witness a worsening, widespread vacancy issue across the federal government where key offices are without Senate confirmed leadership, sometimes for years on end, to the detriment of the agencies’ functioning.”

The lack of appointed agency leadership has been a long-standing problem in the Trump administration, but not one that bothers him. He prefers having acting officials instead of those who require Senate confirmation.

STAT: Director of U.S. agency key to vaccine development leaves role suddenly amid coronavirus pandemic

WASHINGTON — Rick Bright, one of the nation’s leading vaccine development experts and the director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, is no longer leading the organization, officials told STAT.

The shakeup at the agency, known as BARDA, couldn’t come at a more inopportune time for the office, which invests in drugs, devices, and other technologies that help address infectious disease outbreaks and which has been at the center of the government’s coronavirus pandemic response.

Bright, whose departure was confirmed by three industry sources and two current Trump administration sources, will instead move into a narrower role at the National Institutes of Health. Gary Disbrow, Bright’s former deputy at BARDA, will serve as the acting director of the office, an HHS spokesperson confirmed to STAT.

BARDA was expected to play an even larger role in the coming months; Congress more than tripled BARDA’s budget in the most recent coronavirus stimulus package. Already, the office has a role in some of the splashiest Covid-19 projects, including partnerships with Johnson & Johnson and Moderna Therapeutics, both of which are developing potential Covid-19 treatments.

Dr. RIck Bright's statement on his removal as Director of BARDA:
Yesterday, I was removed from my positions as the Director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) and HHS Deputy Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response by the Administration and involuntarily transferred to a more limited and less impactful position at the National Institutes of Health. I believe this transfer was in response to my insistence that the government invest the billions of dollars allocated by Congress to address the COVID-19 pandemic into safe and scientifically vetted solutions, and not in drugs, vaccines and other technologies that lack scientific merit. I am speaking out because to combat this deadly virus, science -- not politics or cronyism -- has to lead the way.

I have spent my entire career in vaccine development, in the government with CDC and BARDA and also in the biotechnology industry. My professional background has prepared me for a moment like this -- to confront and defeat a deadly virus that threatens Americans and people around the globe. To this point, I have led the government's efforts to invest in the best science available to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, this resulted in clashes with HHS political leadership, including criticism for my proactive efforts to invest early in vaccines and supplies critical to saving American lives. I also resisted efforts to fund potentially dangerous drugs promoted by those with political connections.

Specifically, and contrary to misguided directives, I limited the broad use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, promoted by the Administration as a panacea, but which clearly lack scientific merit. While I am prepared to look at all options and to think "outside the box" for effective treatments, I rightly resisted efforts to provide an unproven drug on demand to the American public. I insisted that these drugs be provided only to hospitalized patients with confirmed COVID-19 while under the supervision of a physician. These drugs have potentially serious risks associated with them, including increased mortality observed in some recent studies in patients with COVID-19.

Sidelining me in the middle of this pandemic and placing politics and cronyism ahead of science puts lives at risk and stunts national efforts to safely and effectively address this urgent public health crisis.

I will request that the Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services investigate the manner in which this Administration has politicized the work of BARDA and has pressured me and other conscientious scientists to fund companies with political connections as well as efforts that lack scientific merit. Rushing blindly towards unproven drugs can be disastrous and result in countless more deaths. Science, in service to the health and safety of the American people, must always trump politics.

I am very grateful for the bipartisan support from Congress and their confidence in my leadership of BARDA as reflected in the generous appropriation to BARDA in the CARES 3 Act. It is my sincere hope that the dedicated professionals at BARDA and throughout HHS will be allowed to use the best scientific acumen and integrity to continue their efforts to stop the pandemic without political pressure or distractions. Americans deserve no less."
