An Intramural Republican Fight Breaks Out Over the C.I.A. Director’s Fate

first_imgWASHINGTON — Internal Republican divisions over the fate of Gina Haspel’s tenure as C.I.A. director have come tumbling into view as some Senate leaders showed support while President Trump’s allies pushed for her ouster, in part over the agency’s role in disseminating the whistle-blower complaint that prompted impeachment, according to current and former administration officials.For weeks, Mr. Trump has been mulling whether to fire Ms. Haspel, the agency’s first female director. Despite Mr. Trump’s refusal to accept his election loss, people close to him understand that his time in office is limited and the window to remove her is dwindling.- Advertisement – Some officials and presidential allies believe that Ms. Haspel failed to do enough to stop the whistle-blower’s complaints about Mr. Trump’s July 2019 call with President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine, which prompted impeachment, from moving forward. Others have also grown frustrated with her opposition to declassifying documents related to Russia’s 2016 election interference.White House aides are divided over Ms. Haspel’s removal. Pat A. Cipollone, the White House counsel, opposes it, though other officials are pushing for her dismissal, the officials said. Allies of the president have had “a real issue of trust” with Ms. Haspel for more than a year, a senior administration official said. Ms. Haspel’s congressional allies noted that she is a cabinet official and has a responsibility to answer questions from lawmakers conducting oversight of the intelligence agencies.Tensions over Ms. Haspel’s fate intensified this week after Mr. Trump ordered a string of firings at the Pentagon that began with the ouster of Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper on Monday and continued on Tuesday with the removal of other key Pentagon officials, including the head of intelligence and the leader of the influential policy apparatus. The White House then installed loyalists in top defense posts. Top Republicans came subtly to Ms. Haspel’s defense on Tuesday. Senator Mitch McConnell invited her for a conspicuous meeting in his office.That prompted Arthur Schwartz, an informal adviser to Donald Trump Jr., to accuse top Republicans of trying to manipulate Mr. Trump into keeping Ms. Haspel, who Mr. Schwartz said “undermines Trump and subverts his agenda at every turn.” Making reference to Ms. Haspel’s previous clandestine work overseas managing C.I.A. informants, Mr. Schwartz said Republicans “are getting played by a master case officer.”Senator John Cornyn of Texas responded on Twitter, saying intelligence should not be partisan and is “about preserving impartial, nonpartisan information necessary to inform policy makers.”That invited a response from Donald Trump Jr., who asked whether the senators had discussed Ms. Haspel with members of the administration. “Or,” he concluded in an apparent swipe at Ms. Haspel, “are you just taking a trained liar’s word for it on everything?”Some of Mr. Trump’s allies believe the Russia documents they wanted declassified include information that will undermine established facts about the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. But others are skeptical the documents will change the understanding of what happened in 2016. Outside investigators who reviewed intelligence gathered at the time for a bipartisan Senate report released this year backed the conclusion that Russia favored Mr. Trump in that election.No decision on whether to declassify the documents has been made. But the ultimate authority to declassify them does not rest with Ms. Haspel. Mr. Ratcliffe or Mr. Trump could ultimately decide to release them, with or without Ms. Haspel’s blessing. The C.I.A. declined to comment.- Advertisement – Though Ms. Haspel had no direct role in the impeachment inquiry, it was prompted by a C.I.A. officer who made an anonymous and indirect complaint to the agency’s general counsel, then filed a whistle-blower complaint to the inspector general of the intelligence community.Mr. Trump has acted against people he has perceived as aiding the impeachment inquiry. After the Senate acquitted the president this year, he fired Gordon D. Sondland, the ambassador to the European Union who testified in the inquiry, and Michael K. Atkinson, the inspector general who investigated the whistle-blower complaint. The White House also effectively blocked the promotion of Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, the National Security Council aide who was the primary witness in the impeachment hearing, leading to his retirement.White House officials who favor Ms. Haspel’s ouster believe she has been insubordinate to John Ratcliffe, the director of national intelligence, and boxed in the White House on the debate over whether to declassify Russia documents by sharing her concerns with Congress, the senior official said.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

Sometimes, even in the perfect group, it is only one that is not happy, is something that can create a situation where step by step they lose a little bit of focus.‘When Graeme [Souness] says today both managers would take a point, I think he is totally right.

At the same time, they don’t feel big pressure from United, Chelsea, from the team that could stay ahead of them so they have the fourth position more or less under control.‘One point here, one point there was enough for them to keep control. Probably the Champions League becomes step after step the dream for them. Maybe it took away the focus for them. I think this is quite a linear way to look at it.‘But, I am afraid that I’m wrong but also, I’m afraid that I’m right. Maybe, this season they are not having that kind of chemistry that I felt that they had in the team. I don’t know if I’m right, of course. Advertisementlast_img read more

Carl Edwards Jr. was once Cubs’ rising relief stud — now he’s been demoted

first_imgCarl Edwards Jr. was a revelation for a Cubs team in desperate need of relievers during their run to a World Series championship in 2016.He followed up a good year with two great ones in 2017 and 2018 when he posted ERAs of 2.98 and 2.60, respectively, in 131 appearances in 118 1/3 innings. “I think it’ll be important for us to make the right calls in season,” Epstein said, via The Athletic. “Make the right adjustments and try to get the most out of these guys that we can. I’m confident we will continue to have a very effective bullpen and I’m sure there are going to be a lot more than eight guys contributing over the course of the year.”This is the first notable in-season change the Cubs have made and it may have been a necessary one even if it just gives Edwards time to reset at the minor league level. That was then and this is now.MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNEdwards has been demoted to Triple-A Iowa after just four outings in 2019, the Cubs announced Saturday.Edwards, 27, has allowed six earned runs in just 1 2/3 innings while giving up two home runs and walking five.Former Red Sox top prospect Allen Webster has been recalled to take Edwards’ place while Kyle Ryan has been activated as well as Mike Montgomery was moved to the 10-day injured list.Webster was not on the Cubs’ 40-man roster, so the team had to designate Jen-Ho Tseng for assignment to make room.The Cubs are off to a horrendous start on the mound and in the field as Chicago had allowed 59 runs through seven games coming into Saturday, nine of which were unearned as the team has made 11 errors as well.Coming into the year, the Cubs knew they were going to have to do some mixing and matching to make things work in their bullpen with closer Brandon Morrow hurt to start the season and Pedro Strop coming off of an injury.President of baseball operations Theo Epstein spoke about the challenge in March.last_img read more
