A Trump Nominee, Devos, Draws First Republican Senate Opponents

Source: Bloomberg

Collins, Murkowski announce opposition to Betsy DeVos
They are first Republicans to oppose a Trump nominee

Republican Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski said Wednesday that they won’t support Betsy DeVos as President Donald Trump’s education secretary, meaning that one additional GOP opponent could block her nomination.

The pair became the first GOP senators to oppose one of Trump’s nominees as they announced their opposition to her nomination on the Senate floor. Republican leaders quickly moved Wednesday to tee up DeVos as the next nominee to receive a floor vote, scheduling a procedural vote on her nomination.

That means her confirmation vote would come before those of more high-profile nominees, including Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions to run the Justice Department. Given the opposition of Collins and Murkowski, Republicans now need Sessions’s vote to confirm DeVos.

Most Democrats have already announced that they plan to oppose DeVos as well. If all Democrats are opposed, and the vote ends up 50-50, Vice President Mike Pence could cast the tie-breaking vote to confirm her

Donald Trumps doctor: If something happens to him, then it happens to him


onald Trump's campaign and its supporters spent a good portion of the 2016 campaign arguing that Hillary Clinton was secretly very ill and not up to the task of being president.

Trump's doctor, by contrast, isn't too worried about his patient dying in office — at least, not when it comes to the future of the country.

“If something happens to him, then it happens to him,” Harold Bornstein says. “It’s like all the rest of us, no? That’s why we have a vice president and a speaker of the House and a whole line of people. They can just keep dying.”

That amazing quote comes courtesy of a new interview Bornstein did with STAT. And it's part of a veritable murderer's row of curmudgeonly quotes from and anecdotes about the . . . well . . . interesting physician.

A few other quotes from the interview:

About the lack of disclosure about Trump's health and his being the oldest president: “There's nothing to share” on a regular basis. And: “Ronald Reagan had pre-senile dementia. I mean, seriously, did they share that one with you, or did Nancy just cover it up?”
Before agreeing to the interview, Bornstein pleaded for the reporter to leave him alone. “Please stop this nonsense!!!” he said in an email.
On having second thoughts about the interview being published afterward: “I happen to have known the Sulzbergers [the family that owns the New York Times] for 50 years. I’m going to make sure you don’t ever work again if you do this.”
Trump isn't “an old man the way my grandfather was an old man.” But Hillary Clinton: “She’s an old lady. She’s an old lady. It’s funny, isn’t it?”
On his son volunteering to work for Trump's campaign: “What a great experience, for an 18-year-old to go to Trump Tower in a presidential year, with this character, of all people.”

A decent breakdown of all things real and fake news


The minor girl victimized by Weiner sends letter to Comey about how his letter victimized her again.


Here’s An Open Letter To Comey From The Teen Who Allegedly Got Sexts From Weiner
“I thought your job as FBI Director was to protect me.”

On Wednesday, BuzzFeed News published an interview with the teenage girl who allegedly got indecent messages from Anthony Weiner.
Her story has received renewed attention since FBI Director James Comey announced on Friday that an investigation was continuing into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, following the discovery of new emails. As the New York Times first reported, the emails were discovered on the private computer of Weiner, 52, and his wife, Huma Abedin, a top Clinton aide, by investigators probing messages the disgraced former congressman allegedly sent to the underage 15-year-old girl, now 16.
The teen told BuzzFeed News she was upset with Comey for giving no warning her case was set to be thrust into the national spotlight and tainted with electoral politics.
The FBI declined to comment on the case. BuzzFeed News independently confirmed the teen’s identity, in part, via an email provided by Weiner, by traveling to her hometown, and by speaking with her and her father.
The teen wrote this open letter, printed in full below, to James Comey and provided it to BuzzFeed News.

Mr. James Comey
FBI Director
November 2, 2016
I am the 15-year-old (now 16) who was the victim of Anthony Weiner. I now add you to the list of people who have victimized me. I told my story originally to protect other young girls that might be a victim of online predators.
Your letter to Congress has now brought this whole matter back into the media spotlight. Not even 10 minutes after being forensically interviewed with the FBI for seven hours, I received a phone call from a REPORTER asking for a statement. Why didn’t you communicate with the local FBI agents that I had just spoken to? They could have scheduled our interview sooner or scheduled a time to interview me later, or change locations of the interview. My neighborhood has been canvassed by reporters asking for details about me.
In your letter, you chose to use a vague approach, meaning the media had to keep searching to try and find out what evidence you had uncovered and how. Every media outlet from local to national has contacted me and my family to get my “story.” Why couldn’t your letter have waited until after the election, so I would not have to be the center of attention the last week of the election cycle?
