Donald Trump Might Boot Steve Bannon and Reince Preibus from His Administration

Knives are out for Stephen Bannon, and his scam is getting unmasked

Knives are out for Stephen Bannon, and his scam is getting unmasked

US President Donald Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon reportedly called Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushner a "cuck" and a "globalist", two derogatory terms popular with the alt-right, the latter with anti-Semitic connotations.

His attorney, Jamie Gorelick, said the "premature draft" was "mistakenly submitted" on January 18 without the proper review.

"During the presidential campaign and transition period, I served as a point-of-contact for foreign officials trying to reach the President-Elect". That meeting - including the full accounting of contacts - has not yet occurred.

Canadian tariff impacts WI dairy farmers
The controversial policy has re-priced Canadian milk products in ways that have directly impacted demand for imported products. Canada is no longer accepting the milk due to the country's new Class 7 pricing policy .

Until he supplies the supplemental information or until he speaks with the F.B.I., Kushner now holds an interim security clearance.

The sources said Bannon and Kushner have been engaged in a consistent battle in which they get into "face to face" confrontations, the Daily Beast reported. Increasingly, that means reveling in secondhand reports about the utter disarray of his administration, whether it's the news that his wife might hate him or the utter ineptitude of his cronies like Sean Spicer. Complicating matters, however, is Kushner's chats with Russian officials. Further, Kushner also met with Sergey Gorkov - a Vladimir Putin ally, Russian spy school grad, and head of a Russian state-owned bank (Vnesheconombank) that was placed under USA sanctions following Putin's strong-arming in Ukraine and annexation of Crimea. He was stripped of a post on the National Security Council this week, even as Kushner waded further into his father-in-law's foreign policy affairs with a trip to Iraq and a leadership role in preparing for this week's meeting with Xi.

Still, the source, as well as other Trump officials, told Axios that its only a matter of time before Trump makes major changes.

Las Vegas sports gambler Walters convicted of insider trading
As the verdict was returned on 10 counts of conspiracy, securities fraud and wire fraud, Walters shook his head repeatedly. Jurors found Walters earned some $43 million over six years based on illegal tips from his golfing pal Tom C.

When applying for a security clearance, applicants are asked to disclose details about their interactions with foreigners, including the names of all the foreign government officials the applicant has had contact with over the past seven years.

On foreign policy, Mr. Kushner is more inclined toward intervention in the Middle East while Mr. Bannon would prefer that the United States remain as uncommitted as possible. In fact, the form warns that "a knowing and willful false statement" can be punished by fine or imprisonment.

Obama aide says intel not used to spy on Trump advisers
Likely being the operative word. "Absolutely not for any political purposes, to spy, expose, anything", she added. Although there is still no proof that the president was subject to a wiretap or any sort of direct surveillance.
