    I see one clearly Asian lady (4th from the right, back row) and 1 possibly mixed lady (mixed Asian, like my family predominantly is and she kinda looks like some of my cousins) 1st on the left of the middle row, with the scarf. Also one that might be mixed: in the second row you see her face between the lady in lavender (the one sitting next to #45's dream woman, Ivanka) and the lady in black on the first row.
    But I get your point: at first glance it's a really white group.

    How John Kelly responded when NPR asked if it was "cruel and heartless" to take a mother away from her children: "I wouldn't put it quite that way. The children will be taken care of — put into foster care or whatever." https://t.co/YKpcqn27sh https://t.co/I3gvEbfaa4

    Some people you can just characterize by their looks. The first time I saw a picture of John Kelly I thought "What an asshole" when everybody was saying he was THE person who could keep #45 in check. Proves that first impressions were right. He IS an asshole.

    I feel bad for him because he lost his son in Afghanistan. As a dad, that kind of crushing lost just makes me dizzy to even contemplate. Under a normal administration, he would just be this dour, effective guy. But under what we are dealing with now, everyone either gets fired, or plods along like a soul-less minion in the Death Star.

    Speculation on Twitter is that Cohen made "consulting" overtures to companies that Trump had mentioned during the campaign. Ford turned Cohen down and Mueller has asked for all communications from Cohen. I bet execs at those companies were terrified that he would go on Twitter and tank their stock.

    The public case against Trump




    Illustration: Sarah Grillo/Axios


    One thing is true of all major political scandals: What we know in the moment is but a tiny, obscured, partial view of the full story later revealed by investigators.
    Why it matters: That’s what makes the Trump-Russia drama all the more remarkable. Forget all we don’t know. The known facts that even Trump’s closest friends don’t deny tell a damning tale that would sink most leaders.


    Here's a guide that Jim VandeHei and I put together to the known knowns of Russia:

    • We know Paul Manafort, former Trump campaign chair, has been indicted on 32 counts, including conspiracy and money laundering. We know he made millions off shady Russians and changed the Republican platform to the benefit of Russia.
    • We know that the U.S. intelligence community concluded, in a report released in January 2017, that Russian President Vladimir Putin “ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election,” to “denigrate” Hillary Clinton and with “a clear preference for ... Trump.”
    • We know that in May 2016, Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos told an Australian diplomat Russia had political dirt on Hillary. "About three weeks earlier," according to the N.Y. Times, "Papadopoulos had been told that Moscow had thousands of emails that would embarrass Mrs. Clinton."
    • We know that in June 2016, Trump’s closest aides and family members met at Trump Tower with a shady group of Russians who claimed to have dirt on Hillary. The meeting was billed as "part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump."
    • We know the Russian lawyer who helped set it up concealed her close ties to Putin government.
    • We know that in July 2016, Trump said: "“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 [Hillary] emails that are missing,” and urged their publication.
    • We know that on Air Force One a year later, Trump helped his son, Don Jr., prepare a misleading statement about the meeting. We know top aides freaked out about this.
    • We know Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting.
    • We know Michael Flynn, former national security adviser and close campaign aide, lied to Vice President Pence and FBI about his Russia-related chats. We know he’s now cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller. We know Trump initially tried to protect Flynn with loyalty and fervency rarely shown by Trump to others.
    • We know that during the transition, Jared Kushner spoke with the Russian ambassador "about establishing a secret communications channel between the Trump transition team and Moscow." We know Kushner omitted previous contacts with Russians on his disclosure forms.
    • We know Trump initially lied about why he fired James Comey, later admitting he was canned because of the “Russia thing.”
    • We know Michael Cohen was a close adviser and lawyer, the fixer and secret-keeper. We know Trump seethed when the FBI raided Cohen's office.
    • We know that in January 2016, just before Republicans began voting, Michael Cohen tried to restart a Trump Tower project in Moscow.
    • We know Mueller questioned a Russian oligarch who made payments to Cohen who used the money to pay off a porn star who allegedly had an affair with Trump.
    • We know that oligarch was a bad enough dude that the Trump administration sanctioned him.

    Be smart: The undisputed known knowns about Trump, Russia and his associates are damning and possibly actionable. But the known unknowns of how much more Robert Mueller knows that is publicly unknown is what spooks Trump allies most.

    • Remember: No one in the media saw Mueller’s indictments of Russian oligarchs coming until the second they were announced, and no one knew until this week that Mueller’s team questioned AT&T five months ago about its payments to Cohen.
    • Mueller has every incentive to keep the public and Trump himself in suspense.



    Inside the room: White House flare-up over McCain leak




    John McCain. Photo: Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images


    At yesterday’s meeting of the White House communications team — in the wake of a leak from the prior meeting of a callous remark about John McCain’s brain cancer — a visibly upset and furious Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told the group: “I am sure this conversation is going to leak, too. And that’s just disgusting,” according to a source in the room.
    Sanders' prediction came true. What follows below is a leak from that very intense meeting yesterday, according to five sources in the room. The broad outlines of this meeting were first reported by ABC News.
    Why this matters: The White House communications and press team has been beset by leaks. This last one appears to have crossed a line, and several people in the room on Friday told me they now walk into meetings knowing they can’t trust their own colleagues. In big meetings, they feel inclined, now, to keep their mouths shut.


    At one point, per a source in the room, White House strategic communications director Mercedes Schlapp interjected with a word of support for Sadler:
    "You can put this on record...
    I stand with Kelly Sadler"


    A source close to Schlapp told me that "her point was that when one staff member is publicly targeted by other members of the staff, she thinks that's inappropriate and the team should support staffers who are subjected to leaks."
    Sources in the room on Friday told me senior leaders on the press team spent more time focused on the fact that Sadler's now-infamous comment had leaked, than that it was said in the first place.
    In an emotional speech in the Roosevelt Room, Sanders lambasted the press and communications team for the leak:

    • Kelly Sadler’s comment was inappropriate, she said, according to a staffer in the room, but that didn’t justify leaking it to the press.
    • Sanders told the team that Thursday should have been a great day for the White House, especially with the historic photos of Trump welcoming the hostages released from North Korea.
    • But instead, that was overcome by saturation cable TV coverage about Sadler’s comment. In Thursday's meeting of the White House communications and press team, Sadler said "It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway," in reference to McCain's decision to oppose Trump's CIA nominee Gina Haspel. The Hill first reported the private remarks. Since then, everyone from McCain's family to members of Congress to former Vice President Joe Biden has condemned the remark.

    A source in the room for Friday's meeting, defending Sanders, told me she made a point of immediately saying Sadler’s comment was wrong but her point was that these issues should be litigated internally and airing grievances through the press inflicts immense damage on the White House.
    “No one is condoning the remark,” the source, defending Sanders, added. “The message to the staff is that leaking it to the press is not how you handle it.”
    Sanders told the team that the communications staff should be particularly sensitive to the damage leaks can cause. She called the leak “selfish,” according to a source in the room.
    Another source added: "Sarah cares so much about the team, the cause, this country and this President. Sarah did absolutely the right thing in condemning the remark but also condemning the selfish action."
