    Congress' oversight of the White House is put on indefinite hold

    Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) seems a little too eager to prove the thesis correct. TPM reported yesterday:

    House Oversight Committee Chair Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) said Wednesday that he doesn't think President Donald Trump's tweet attacking department store Nordstrom for dropping his daughter Ivanka Trump's clothing and accessories line is "a big deal" ...

    Congress' oversight of the White House is put on indefinite hold

    Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) is bolstering the thesis that Congress "has increasingly become a check only on presidents of the opposite party."

    The White House employee who ensures Trump doesn’t get hacked has been fired

    A troubling report last month revealed that President Donald Trump still uses “his old, unsecured Android phone” despite protests from security experts and his closest advisers, He was given a more secure device once he took office, but for whatever reason, he refuses to make the switch and continues to tweet from his old phone. As baffling as this is, it’s even more frightening in light of the news that Cory Louie, chief information security officer for the White House’s Executive Office, has left his post ...

    'DO YOUR JOB!': Crowd repeatedly shouts down House Oversight chairman in raucous town hall meeting

    Chaffetz, who represents Utah's 3rd congressional district, took questions on several topics inside a high school auditorium that was filled to capacity, several media outlets reported.

    Attendees challenged him on Obamacare, energy policy, and Planned Parenthood — but the audience grew increasingly restless and raucous whenever the discussion turned toward recent controversies roiling the White House ...

    Jake Tapper, CNN’s Resident BS Detector, on How to Hold President Trump to Account
    The CNN anchor tells The Daily Beast that, much as he would rather focus on Trump’s policies, ‘it becomes difficult to cover when one has to point out that the president is telling falsehoods


    With his repertoire of sullen facial expressions as he confronts the latest whopper emanating from Donald Trump’s White House, it’s not hard to guess what Jake Tapper is thinking.

    “I’m trying to keep my face as neutral as possible,” the CNN anchor protested on Wednesday, the morning after his epic, 25-minute televised clash with presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway—in which the usually feisty Conway wilted under fire as Tapper repeatedly called out her boss for what he politely referred to as “falsehoods” ...

    Exclusive: Syria’s Assad rejects Trump’s call for ‘safe zones

    DAMASCUS, SYRIA — Syrian President Bashar Assad, in an exclusive interview with Yahoo News, rejected President Trump’s idea to create “safe zones” inside Syria as “not a realistic idea at all.” He said he could see a role for American troops to fight the Islamic State in Syria, but only with his government’s approval and as part of a “rapprochement” with Russia ...

    Justice Kennedy's opinion in 2015 case looms in U.S. travel ban fight

    ... Kennedy's opinion showed he is "not prepared to give complete and total deference to the executive branch in the enforcement of immigration laws," Haddad added.

    Samuel Alito, one of the court's most conservative justices, signed onto Kennedy's opinion; in total, six of the current eight justices suggested in that 2015 case that the government was not immune from scrutiny over immigration-related decisions if there was evidence of a questionable motive ...
