The Latest! Donald Trump on Monday defended hush money payments reported by his former lawyer, responding a day after Democratic lawmakers said the U.S. president could face impeachment and jail time if the transactions are proven to violate campaign finance laws. AND Former FBI Director James Comey said Sunday that he hopes President Donald Trump is not impeached, but instead held accountable by American voters in the 2020 election. Comey made the remarks during a wide-ranging interview with MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace at the 92nd Street Young Men and Young Women's Hebrew Association in New York. "All of us should use every breath we have to make sure the lies stop on January 20, 2021," Comey said, advocating the electoral removal of the man who fired him from the FBI. Comey said Democrats "have to win" in 2020.
WH Shakeup! President Trump announced on Saturday that White House chief of staff John Kelly will leave his job by the end of the year, the latest and highest-profile move in a shake-up of Trump's team following Republican losses in November's midterm elections. Trump told reporters at the White House on Saturday that he would select Kelly's successor, possibly someone on an interim basis, within "a day or two." Nick Ayers, a Republican operative who serves as chief of staff to Vice President Pence, is widely considered the front-runner to replace Kelly as Trump's top aide. The shake-up comes at a pivotal time for Trump, who is confronting the reality of dealing with a Democratic majority in the House next year as well as a rapidly escalating Russia investigation. The president announced Friday that former Attorney General William Barr is his pick to again take the reins at the Justice Department. If confirmed, Barr will play a key role in overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller's probe.
