He also announced his nomination for a new Attorney General.

“I am pleased to announce that I will be nominating The Honorable William P. Barr for the position of Attorney General of the United States. As the former AG for George H.W. Bush……..and one of the most highly respected lawyers and legal minds in the Country, he will be a great addition to our team. I look forward to having him join our very successful Administration!” he said.

It is unclear whether Nauert’s position as U.N. Ambassador will be a cabinet-level position.

Barr, who served as Attorney General to President George H.W. Bush and in the Central Intelligence agency has reportedly been critical of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe into alleged Russian “collusion.”

Meanwhile, rumors are swirling that Kelly’s departure is imminent, and could occur as early as Friday.

“Sources told DailyMail.com that Kelly, a decorated Marine Corps general brought in last year, is ‘expected’ to leave the White House before the end of the year, and the announcement could come as soon as Friday,” according to DailyMail. 

The report said that Vice President Michael R. Pence’s Chief of Staff, Nick Ayers, is set to take over for Kelly. Citing anonymous sources, CNN said that Trump’s relationship with Kelly has become unsalvageable.

“Their relationship has deteriorated so much in the last couple weeks, where John Kelly’s job security has essentially been seen as permanently in danger,” the report said.

There have been previous reports that Kelly’s departure from the White House was imminent, only to see him press forward. Politico reported a month ago that Kelly was on his way out the door, possibly on the same day as the report, and Ayers was on his way in.

Biden’s White House Considering Banning Conservative Media from Press Briefings

Briefings could be restricted to mainstream media?

Published

on

President Joe Biden’s press team may move to restrict the briefings held at the White House to liberal mainstream media outlets, if language from the new President’s deputy press secretary if more than just talk.

Organizations or individuals who traffic in conspiracy theories, propaganda and lies to spread disinformation will not be tolerated,” TJ Ducklo, Biden’s deputy press secretary, said in a statement to Politico, “and we’ll work with the WHCA to decide how to handle those instances moving forward.

Given liberal media figures’ extremely wide-ranging definition of “disinformation,” it appears possible to likely that any journalist or reporter who is critical of Biden policies “will not be tolerated” at the White House.

President Trump had accredited journalists from outlets such as Breitbart and One America News Network during his time in office, and Ducklo’s language suggests the press credentials of such organizations may be revoked. Biden himself has chafed over question regarding his son’s corrupt foreign business dealings, calling Fox News’ Peter Doocy a “one horse pony” for daring to ask about an ongoing Department of Justice investigation into Hunter Biden.

The first press briefing of the Biden administration was attended by fourteen mainstream media employees, in a limited-capacity briefing spurred by the coronavirus pandemic. Room service journalists questioned White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki about the color scheme of Air Force One and Biden’s mood on Inauguration Day.

Former Trump administration Press Secretary Sean Spicer described the ‘easy mode’ briefing as “an embarrassment.” Spicer is currently seeking press credentials to attend White House briefings, along with Fox host Eric Bolling.

Expect the remaining “journalists” present for White House press briefings to ask vital questions about dogs, chocolate chip ice cream, and softball slam dunks for the Biden administration.
