POLITICO White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman on Thursday disputed account

White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman on Thursday disputed accounts of her announced departure from the Trump administration, saying that she resigned from her position and wasn't fired. 🔸 She alleged that a journalist who reported details about the departure “has a personal vendetta against me.” Manigault Newman did not name the reporter, although it seemed clear her attacks were directed at April Ryan, the Washington bureau chief for American Urban Radio Networks and a contributor to CNN. 🔸 “I resigned and I didn't do that in the residence as being reported. [White House chief of staff] John Kelly and I sat down in the situation room, which is a very secure, very quiet room in the White House and we had a very candid conversation,” Manigault Newman told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Thursday. “No one else has reported what she's reporting and this is the one person who has attacked me for the last year. So you know that this is personal.” 🔸 Officially, the White House announced Wednesday that Manigault Newman, a former star on President Donald Trump’s reality TV show, “The Apprentice,” had resigned effective Jan. 20, 2018. But Ryan reported Wednesday that Manigault Newman had been fired by Kelly and had been escorted off the White House campus. 🔸 Asked later Thursday about Manigault Newman's departure from the White House, the president said only, "I like Omarosa. Omarosa’s a good person.” — LOUIS NELSON #omarosa #donaldtrump #presidenttrump #trump #whitehouse #johnkelly #secretservice #aprilryan #politics

Security evacuated the FCC meeting on #NetNeutrality on Thursday. 🔸 After the interruption, the FCC voted 3-2 along party lines to repeal the Obama-era net neutrality regulations, handing a victory to telecom providers over the objections of tech companies including Netflix, Reddit and Etsy. 🔸 The agency's Republican majority approved a plan to scrap the rules preventing internet providers like Comcast and AT&T from blocking or slowing web traffic, or creating so-called paid internet fast lanes. 🔸 Instead, providers will be required to disclose their practices, with the FTC expected to police anti-competitive behavior. #fcc #netneutrality

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday consoled a teary-eyed Meghan McCain, whose father Sen. John McCain was diagnosed with the same type of cancer as his late son Beau Biden earlier this year, during an emotional exchange on ABC's "The View." 🔸 During an interview on "The View" Meghan McCain asked Biden about how he dealt with his son Beau Biden being diagnosed with glioblastoma, the same aggressive form of brain cancer that her father, the Republican Arizona lawmaker, announced he had in July. 🔸 "I think about Beau almost every day. I was told that this doesn't get easier. I know you and your family have been through tragedy that you can't conceive of," McCain said to the former vice president before breaking down in tears. —CRISTIANO LIMA #media #joebiden #beaubiden #johnmccain #meghanmccain #theview #cancer #braincancer #politics #Repost @theviewabc (@get_repost) ・・・ Joe Biden shared a special moment with our @meghanmccain at the table today. ❤️ #TheView #JoeBiden

ICYMI: Democrat Doug Jones defeated Roy Moore in a special election earthquake Tuesday, flipping an Alabama Senate seat to Democrats for the first time in a quarter-century and dealing a huge political setback to President Donald Trump. 🔸 The Associated Press called the race for Jones, a former U.S. attorney, who had 49.9 percent of the vote to Moore’s 48.4 percent with all precincts reporting — a difference of more than 21,000 votes. 🔸 Still, Moore declined to concede, saying there were still military and other votes that need to be counted. Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill told CNN it would be "highly unusual and highly unlikely" for the outstanding ballots to change the results of the race. -DANIEL STRAUSS #roymoore #dougjones #alabama #senate #politics #election #votes

Democrat Doug Jones has won Alabama's special Senate election, defeating Republican Roy Moore after Moore was accused of sexual assault and child predation by multiple women. 🔸 Jones, a former U.S. attorney, had 49.6 percent of the vote when The Associated Press called the race with 89 percent of precincts reporting. Moore, a former state Supreme Court chief justice, had 48.8 percent.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand called on President Donald Trump to resign over allegations of sexual misconduct on Monday, the latest of four lawmakers in the chamber to do so. 🔸 “President Trump should resign,” Gillibrand said during an interview on CNN. “These allegations are credible; they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking.” 🔸 The New York Democrat added that if Trump did not “immediately resign,” Congress “should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.” 🔸 The remarks came on the heels of similar calls by Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.), all of whom urged the president to step down following the announced resignation of Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) over sexual harassment allegations. 🔸 “We have a president who acknowledged on tape that he assaulted women,” Sanders tweeted Thursday after Franken said in a speech on the Senate floor that he would resign in the coming weeks. “I would hope that he pays attention to what's going on and think about resigning.” 🔸 After an explosive tape was unearthed last year in which Trump boasted about groping women on a hot mic while interviewing for “Access Hollywood,” more than a dozen women came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against him, including claims of sexual assault and sexual abuse. 🔸 On Monday, during a press conference in New York City, four of the women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct — Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey, Rachel Crooks and Lisa Boyne — called on Congress to investigate the allegations against the president. —CRISTIANO LIMA #alfranken #resignation #berniesanders #corybooker #sexualmisconduct #jeffmerkley #kirstengillibrand #democrats #donaldtrump #presidenttrump #trump #politics
