The Justice Department released hundreds of decades-old internal legal memos that conclude the President is legally barred from appointing a relative to a position in the White House after receiving several Freedom of Information Act requests for the material. In January of this year, deputy assistant attorney general Daniel Koffsky reversed this legal position in January, finding the anti-nepotism law covers only appointments in an “executive” agency and that the White House Office is not such an agency under the law.

“In choosing his personal staff, the President enjoys an unusual degree of freedom, which Congress found suitable to the demands of his office,” wrote Koffsky.

When asked if there’s a policy that prevents the President from hiring white supremacists and white nationalists, Koffsky said, “No, of course not you fool!”

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was on the verge of resigning this past summer. Tensions came to a head after a July 20 meeting at the Pentagon with members of Donald Трамп’s national security team and Cabinet officials went poorly. Tillerson had openly disparaged Трамп, referring to him as a “moron,” after the meeting.

Aides said they heard Tillerson crying in the bathroom just a few days ago, lamenting his situation. “All I want to do is secure a deal with the Russian government so Exxon can make a bunch of money drilling for oil in the arctic,” Tillerson said while sitting on the toilet.

To make amends and get Tillerson and Трамп back on the same page, aides say they plan to try and get Трамп to buy stock in Exxon Mobil.

Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Трамп routed their personal email accounts to computers run by the Trump Organization as public scrutiny intensified over their use of private emails to conduct White House business, internet registration records show.

Various news outlets are planning to run this story 24/7 for the next year as soon as they can find an email sent to either Kushner or Трамп by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
