From CNBC:


U.S. Ambassador to Panama John Feeley, a career diplomat and former Marine Corps helicopter pilot, has resigned, telling the State Department he no longer feels able to serve President Donald Trump.

"As a junior foreign service officer, I signed an oath to serve faithfully the president and his administration in an apolitical fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies. My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honor bound to resign. That time has come," Feeley said, according to an excerpt of his resignation letter read to Reuters.

BREAKING: A GOP Rep Has Resigned!

Kansas State Lawmaker Representative Steve Alford has reportedly stepped down from two leadership roles after taking criticism for controversial comments.

The Hill reported: State Rep. Steve Alford (R), who said over the weekend that African-Americans respond "worst" to marijuana because of "their genetics" and "character makeup," resigned from his posts as the chairman of the House Children and Seniors Committee and vice chairman of a legislative task force on child welfare, The Associated Press reported Tuesday. Alford made the comments at a "Legislative Coffee" session, arguing against a county Democratic official who spoke in favor of legalizing marijuana in the state. Alford argued that Jim Crow-era bans on drugs were put in place to protect citizens from black Americans' drug use. "What you really need to do is go back in the '30s, when they outlawed all types of drugs in Kansas and across the United States," Alford said. "What was the reason why they did that? One of the reasons why, I hate to say it, was that the African-Americans, they were basically users and they basically responded the worst to those drugs just because of their character makeup, their genetics and that." Alford later apologized for the comments in a statement, according to The Hutchinson News, after facing major backlash from Republicans and Democrats.

BREAKING: They’re Calling For Jeff Sessions’ Resignation!!

A number of House Conservatives are calling for the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions according to reports on Thursday.

The Hill reported: Conservative Republican Reps. Mark Meadows (N.C.) and Jim Jordan (Ohio) are calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to step down, citing recent leaks from the Justice Department and FBI. "If Sessions can't address this issue immediately, then we have one final question needing an answer: When is it time for a new attorney general?" the two GOP lawmakers asked in an op-ed for The Washington Examiner. "Sadly, it seems the answer is now," they continued. "It would appear he has no control at all of the premier law enforcement agency in the world." The lawmakers went on to cite a New York Times story, published last week, that referenced intelligence community sources as saying a meeting between former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos and an Australian diplomat kick-started special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia's efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election. Republicans have long argued the unverified dossier compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele led to the probe. Read story @ (Link: thehill.com) Please share and comment.
