    I love that in the NYT article it states that she doesn't know what her next job will be. I don't why I find that kind of amusing.

    I just heard President Orange Orangutan is coming to my neck of the woods real soon to look at the border wall protypes. Ive seen pics and theylook like ginormous hand-ball walls. He will sneak right in San Diego then disappear. He has a repub fundraiser he’s attending in LA too.

    Hope Hicks to Resign as White House Communications Director

    By MAGGIE HABERMANFEB. 28, 2018







    Hope Hicks did not indicate what her next job would be or when she intended to leave her post as White House communications director. CreditLeah Millis/ReutersHope Hicks, the White House communications director and one of President Trump’s longest-serving advisers, said Wednesday that she was resigning.

    Ms. Hicks, 29, a former model who joined Mr. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign without any experience in politics, became known as one of the few aides who understood his personality and style and could challenge the president to change his views.


    Ms. Hicks had been considering leaving for several months. She told colleagues that she had accomplished what she felt she could with a job that made her one of the most powerful people in Washington, and that there would never be a perfect moment to leave, according to White House aides.


    Her resignation came a day after she testified for eight hours before the House Intelligence Committee, telling the panel that in her job, she had occasionally been required to tell white lies but had never lied about anything connected to the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

    She did not say what her next job would be, and her departure date was unclear, but it is likely to be in the next few weeks.

    Ms. Hicks said that she had “no words” to express her gratitude to the president, who responded with his own statement.


    “Hope is outstanding and has done great work for the last three years,” Mr. Trump said. “She is as smart and thoughtful as they come, a truly great person. I will miss having her by my side, but when she approached me about pursuing other opportunities, I totally understood. I am sure we will work together again in the future.”


    As communications director, Ms. Hicks worked to stabilize, to some extent, a fractious press department of about 40 people who were often at odds with one another in 2017.

    She maintained one of the lowest public profiles of anyone to ever hold the job, declining to sit for interviews or appear at the White House briefing room podium. That mystique added to the outsize attention she received.


    “I quickly realized what so many have learned about Hope: She is strategic, poised and wise beyond her years,” said John F. Kelly, the White House chief of staff. “She became a trusted adviser and counselor, and did a tremendous job overseeing the communications for the president’s agenda including the passage of historic tax reform. She has served her country with great distinction. To say that she will be missed is an understatement.”

    Well, all there is on Fox News are lies, so she should fit right in.

    You have to actually speak if you are on a Fox News show.

    More Than 30 Trump Aides Lose Top Secret Clearance, Sources Say

    By Margaret Talev
    and Jennifer Jacobs
    February 28, 2018, 5:04 PM EST Updated on February 28, 2018, 5:20 PM EST


    More than 30 aides to President Donald Trump have been stripped of access to top secret intelligence, two people familiar with the move said.


    The officials have been notified that they will be downgraded to lower-level “secret” interim security clearances, said the two people. None of the officials have been asked to leave the administration and their portfolios on top secret matters will be distributed to other staff members, they said.


    Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, also has had his security clearance downgraded as result of the same new policy on interim clearances set by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, said another person familiar with the material.


    All of the officials whose clearances were downgraded held the top secret designation on an interim basis. Kelly set a new policy that took effect last week that permits interim clearances only at the secret level and not permitting temporary clearances at higher levels.


    The White House has faced a barrage of criticism over its handling of sensitive intelligence. The House Oversight Committee opened an investigation this month after former Staff Secretary Rob Porter was permitted to keep his for months after the FBI said it had provided the White House a report including allegations of domestic violence from his two ex-wives.
    Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley said Tuesday that he wants answers from the White House and the FBI about reports that dozens of top officials still lacked a full security clearance, and that some officials like Kushner have access to the highly classified President’s Daily Brief prepared by intelligence agencies.

    In an earlier memo released Feb. 16, Kelly said that the administration must “do better” in its handling of security clearances. Kelly said he would discontinue all “Top Secret or SCI-level interim clearances” for people who have ongoing investigations stretching back to June 1, 2017, using an acronym for “Sensitive Compartmented Information.” While the new policy was set to take effect on Feb. 23, White House officials have declined to say who would be affected.

    Can we take a moment to fully appreciate how a 29-year-old former child model with no experience in political
    administration managed to be one of the longest serving Trump White House advisers?

    This could really disrupt that incredibly well-oiled machine.

    Surely, Ivanka has another airhead friend to take Cover-Up girl's place. The only job qualifications needed are short skirts and a hot iron.
