President Trump publicly says he has full confidence in John Kelly, but talk of who might supplant the embattled joint chiefs of staff is starting to heat up. Kelly is in hot water, of course, over the White House’s handling of former staffer Rob Porter, who’s accused of mistreating his two ex-wives. The White House claims it didn’t know about the allegations until recently, but FBI Director Christopher Wray blew that narration out of the sea when he witnessed the bureau frequently briefed the White House last year on its investigation into the aide.

Meanwhile, Michael Cohen, the President’s personal solicitor, said he paid porn starring Stormy Daniels $ 130,000 out of his own fund. Daniels allegedly had a sexual encounter with Trump before his time in place, something Trump repudiates. So, why the payoff? Cohen said, “Just because something isn’t genuine doesn’t mean that it can’t campaign you injure or shatter. I will ever protect Mr. Trump.”
