White has been re-nominated to direct the White House Council on Environmental Quality. She believes that climate change is a conspiracy to "decarbonize human societies." Yes, the same one that doesn't know about the expansion of water as it warms (once it gets above like 4C ofc).

[edit] The CDC director has resigned after it was discovered that she has been trading tobacco stocks. The most shocking thing here being that she actually resigned instead of just denying it and waiting for people to forget.

[edit 2] "The memo" has been released. There is nothing of note in it (unless you count things like it being confirmed that the investigation started before the Steele dossier, but everyone knew that already despite righties denying it). Surprise!
John McCain has released a statement:
“In 2016, the Russian government engaged in an elaborate plot to interfere in an American election and undermine our democracy. Russia employed the same tactics it has used to influence elections around the world, from France and Germany to Ukraine, Montenegro, and beyond. Putin’s regime launched cyberattacks and spread disinformation with the goal of sowing chaos and weakening faith in our institutions. And while we have no evidence that these efforts affected the outcome of our election, I fear they succeeded in fueling political discord and dividing us from one another.
“The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests – no party’s, no president’s, only Putin’s. The American people deserve to know all of the facts surrounding Russia’s ongoing efforts to subvert our democracy, which is why Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation must proceed unimpeded. Our nation’s elected officials, including the president, must stop looking at this investigation through the warped lens of politics and manufacturing partisan sideshows. If we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin’s job for him.”
