Jared of all trades: Kushner’s ever-expanding White House portfolio

Wed, 04/05/2017 - 03:13

This week, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, traveled to Baghdad to meet with Iraqi officials and U.S. military personnel about the fight against ISIS. Despite having no military or foreign policy training, Kushner’s unexpected arrival in Baghdad was hardly a shock to those who’ve been tracking the rapid expansion of the 36-year-old real estate developer’s wide-ranging White House portfolio. From quietly choreographing U.S. relations with China to remodeling the federal government and brokering peace in the Middle East, it appears there are increasingly few aspects of his father-in-law’s administration that Kushner does not have his hands in.

Syrian doctor closest to attack: ‘90 percent chance this was sarin’

Wed, 04/05/2017 - 02:35

A doctor who operates the clinic closest to the site of a chemical weapon attack in Syria told Yahoo News he personally treated “delirious” victims who were “foaming at the mouth,” gasping for air and suffering muscle spasms, symptoms he said are consistent with sarin nerve gas poisoning. The doctor, Dr. Mohammed Mansour, sent Yahoo News a video from his clinic showing rows of young children lined up under blankets, their faces and eyes frozen, apparently unable to speak or move. “Based on my medical expertise, there is a 90 percent chance this was sarin gas used against these civilians,” said Dr. Mohammed Mansour in a Skype interview from Idlib province, where he runs a clinic that he said is a 15-minute drive from where the attack occurred.

McConnell says he has the votes to scrap Supreme Court filibuster in Gorsuch standoff

Wed, 04/05/2017 - 02:16

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday afternoon that he was confident he had the votes to change the body’s rules if Democrats go through with their threat to filibuster President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch. McConnell downplayed the significance of that change, even as other members of his caucus have said it would damage the Senate and lead to a more ideological, partisan Supreme Court. “The practical effect of all of this would be to take us back to where we were before Sen. Schumer convinced Democrats to routinely filibuster judges,” McConnell said, referring to Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
