All Congressional Delegations Traveling On Gov’t Aircraft Now Need WH Permission

The White House issued a directive Friday proclaiming that all congressional delegations must get approval from acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney before traveling on government aircraft or using travel funds during the shutdown.

Aides Including Mulvaney Goaded Trump To Ground Pelosi’s Flight In Retaliation

Some of President Donald Trump’s staffers—including acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney—had a thirst for revenge after reading House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) State of the Union letter. According to a Thursday New York Time report, Mulvaney and the other disgruntled aides goaded Trump to knock her down a peg especially after her proclamation about the legislature being a coequal branch of the government. The team thought that grounding her was the easiest way to get revenge, and were repo...

IRS Workers Say Trump Is Just Trying to Save Face With Employee Recall

"IRS employees who process federal tax returns and refunds do not protect human life or property from imminent threat," the legal standard for ordering federal employees to work without pay during a government shutdown, the National Treasury Employees Union said on Thursday, the 27th day of the shutdown. It had sued Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney in an unsuccessful bid to win a temporary court order forcing the U.S. to pay its employees or let them take other jobs.

President Donald Trump, ever hyper-aware of how his administration plays out in the media, boiled over recently as he turned to his acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney: “We are getting crushed! Why can’t we get a deal?” According to a Wednesday New York Times report, Trump is shocked that Democrats haven’t come around on the wall and has taken to finger pointing at various aides whenever he sees news or polling indicating that Americans are blaming him for the prolonged shutdown.

Trump Berated Mulvaney During Dem Meeting: ‘You F*cked It All Up, Mick’

During a negotiations meeting with Democrats in early January, President Trump upbraided his top aide, acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney because he was unhappy with his negotiating style, Axios reported. “You fucked it all up, Mick,” Trump reportedly told Mulvaney, cutting him off while he spoke of finding a “middle ground” with Democrats who seemed to be unflinching in their opposition to providing $5.7 billion for Trump’s border wall. “As a negotiator, Trump was resetting,” a source in th...

Federal Workers’ Union Sues Over Forced Work Without Pay During Shutdown

A union representing 150,000 government employees — including workers at the IRS, Customs and Border Protection, EPA, FDA and other agencies — sued the government Wednesday, saying the Trump administration had too broadly interpreted a law that requires certain federal employees to work without pay during shutdowns. “If employees are working, they must be paid—and if there is not money to pay them, then they should not be working,” Tony Reardon, the national president of the National Tre...

The Mobile Mick Mulvaney May Be Eyeing Yet Another Job: USC President

However, at the time, he was also eyeing a very different occupation: the presidency of the University of South Carolina.

After More Failed Negotiations, Pelosi To Push Individual Bills To Reopen Agencies

WASHINGTON (AP) — With no weekend breakthrough to end a prolonged partial government shutdown, President Donald Trump is standing firm in his border wall funding demands and newly empowered House Democrats are planning to step up pressure on Trump and Republican lawmakers to reopen the government. Trump showed no signs of budging on his demand for more than $5 billion for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, though on Sunday he did offer to build it with steel rather than concrete, a concessi...

President Trump says he needs to deal with Democratic leaders to end partial government shutdown

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump held out little hope Sunday that another round of talks between top aides and congressional staff would produce meaningful progress toward ending the partial government shutdown, seeming to undercut his team by saying he needed to deal directly with Democratic leaders. “Ultimately, it’s going to be solved by the principals,” Trump told reporters at the White House before leaving for staff meetings at Camp David as the shutdown headed into its third week.

‘I Have No Idea’: Mulvaney Juggles Trump’s Wild Border Wall Claims

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney on Sunday tried to put a positive spin on President Donald Trump’s demand for $5 billion for a border wall, which Democrats have rejected and which has resulted in a 16-day (and counting) partial government shutdown. Trump repeatedly said — at least, before the shutdown began — that he would enthusiastically take credit for a shutdown resulting from his border wall demands. On Sunday, speaking to CNN’s Jake Tapper, Mulvaney took a different stan...
