Trump cancels his cabinet-level delegation trip to Davos next week "out of consideration for the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay and to ensure his team can assist as needed,” says @PressSec
We are now in what historians would call "the nah-nah-nah-nah-pooh-pooh" era of American politics.
Trump ally Graham says Pelosi move all but disinviting Trump from State of the Union was “blatantly political” and Trump's retaliation canceling her overseas trip “is also inappropriate.” “One sophomoric response does not deserve another,” he says.
Not only is White House turnover at a modern high, so is secondary turnover. According to @kdtenpas & @EKamarck at @BrookingsInst, 29% of top Trump staff jobs have turned over more than once. For instance, he’s on his 5th deputy national security adviser.
Trump: "In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate."
A day after she all but disinvited him from delivering the State of the Union address, Trump tells Pelosi he is canceling her trip to Belgium, Egypt and Afghanistan, citing the shutdown. The executive branch traditionally provides military transport for congressional trips.
The Trump administration likely separated thousands more children from their parents at the Southern border than was previously believed, according to a report by government inspectors. @mirjordan
Ken Starr argues that Barr has no need to step aside from overseeing the Russia investigation because of his memo last year. "Expressing his legal perspective on a legal theory of obstruction of justice should not come close to justifying" recusal.
Today, January 17, marks 3 years since I was released from prison & @YeganehSalehi & I were allowed to leave #Iran together, ending that long ordeal. Our new life has its share of challenges, but I’m incredibly grateful that we’re able to stare them down together, side by side.
“She is indestructible”: In the bizarro world that is British politics, the prime minister nicknamed Maybot awakens every day to find herself in crisis and every day survives in her grim, implacable way. @EllenBarryNYT
Meeting with staff, Mulvaney brandished "The Gatekeepers: How the White House Chiefs of Staff Define Every Presidency" by @ccwhip, sharing passages about successful management models from past administrations. @maggieNYT @anniekarni
Twenty four years ago a Republican-Democrat deadlock resulted in a governor effectively disinvited from delivering his annual address to the state legislature. He delivered it instead to a TV audience from his office. Remember this @hsu_spencer?
UK's May narrowly survives a vote of no-confidence in Parliament on a 325-306 vote, but the result did little to quell the turmoil gripping the British government over her plan for leaving the EU. @_StephenCastle @perezpena
Pelosi exacts revenge against one of her most outspoken detractors, blocking Kathleen Rice from landing a seat on the high-profile House Judiciary Committee. @heatherscope @rachaelmbade @BresPolitico
American troops were among those killed or wounded by a suicide bombing in Syria claimed by the Islamic State. The attack comes as Trump has orders troop withdrawal because he says the jihadists have been defeated. @EricSchmittNYT @NYTBen
Pelosi, citing security constraints from the ongoing government shutdown, asks Trump to reschedule his Jan. 29 State of the Union address or deliver it to Congress in writing unless the government reopens this week. @npfandos
While America tries to keep people out, Russia can’t stop them from leaving. At least six times more Russians are leaving the country than officially estimated, according to a new study.
Eleven Republican senators defy Trump and McConnell to back Democratic-sponsored measure keeping sanctions on companies controlled by Russia's Deripaska. @kenvogel
