House investigators have asked White House Communications Director Hope Hicks to meet with them as they probe Russia’s election meddling and links to Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, a source close to the committee told Newsweek. The source requested anonymity in order to discuss the closed-door matters. Hicks has been the White House communications director since September, and previously was assistant to the president and director of strategic communications.
Special Court Robert Mueller’s team could question Steve Bannon about what he overheard as chief executive of President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and during his tenure as White House chief strategist. Mueller has subpoenaed Bannon, compelling him to testify before a grand jury, The New York Times reported Tuesday. Mueller’s office issued the subpoena last week, according to the report.
When President Donald Trump heads to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for his first formal medical exam as commander-in-chief, Dr. Ronny Jackson will be the one overseeing the physical. Jackson, a rear admiral in the Navy, holds the title of physician to the president. Physicians have provided care to presidents since George Washington was in office, and Congress created the formal title of White House physician in 1928.
Sarah Sanders said today about Mueller probe, "If we have to endure the ridiculousness for another month, we can certainly handle it." But it will continue until at least Sept or Oct, when the Manafort and Gates trial is now expected to start
For months, Dems and Republicans on House Intelligence Cmte have been telling me how divided the parties are on the Russia probe. So their joint effort yesterday to try to get answers from Bannon is remarkable
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
