The head of the US Forest Service has resigned amid reports that the agency was looking into misconduct allegations against him.
“Many of you have seen the news reports which included the stories from women who told of their experiences with sexual harassment in the Forest Service. I admire their courage,” Tony Tooke wrote in an email to employees.
The email later adds, “In some of these news reports, you may have seen references to my own behavior in the past. This naturally raised questions about my record and prompted an investigation, which I requested and fully support, and with which I have cooperated.”
Tooke added: “I have been forthright during the review, but I cannot combat every inaccuracy that is reported in the news media. What I can control, however, are decisions I make today and the choice of a path for the future that is best for our employees, the Forest Service and the US Department of Agriculture. I must also think about what is best for my family. Therefore, I have decided that what is needed right now is for me to step down as Forest Service Chief and make way for a new leader that can ensure future success (more…)

Update: President Trump has announced he will make a decision soon on Gary Cohn’s replacement.
The two frontrunners, now confirmed by administration officials, are White House Trade Council Advisor Peter ‘Death By China’ Navarro (seemingly the out of nowhere architect of Trump’s trade war plan) and Conservative commentator Larry ‘mothers milk of stocks’ Kudlow (who was on CNBC today defending Cohn and talking down Trump’s trade war plan).
Separately, Bloomberg reports that Trump confronted Cohn hours before the resignation, demanding his cooperation on tariffs in a meeting in the Oval Office Tuesday, and asking Cohn directly if he would support his decision to move forward with the plan. Cohn would not offer his support and just hours later, the White House announced Cohn’s resignation.
According to one source with knowledge of the exchange, Trump specifically asked Cohn: We’re all on the same team, right? He then asked if Cohn was going to support the president on the issue. Cohn didn’t (more…)
RNC chairman caught up in sex scandal, forced to resign, reports say
(INTELLIHUB) — Las Vegas casino mogul Steve Wynn is abandoning his post as Republican National Committee Finance Chairman after it was reported by the Wall Street Journal on Friday that Winn forced a manicurist to have sex with him in 2005.
The manicurist received a $7.5 million settlement for the sexual misconduct which could be a part of a larger pattern, according to others who have encountered the high-rolling pit boss over the years.
Mr. Wynn has denied all allegations, stating, “The idea that I ever assaulted any woman is preposterous.”
The RNC is currently exploring prospects for Wynn’s replacement.

A Republican Indianapolis city councilman resigned Friday following sexual misconduct allegations from underage girls.
Jeffrey Miller, 50, a Republican city councilman, resigned from his position after being accused of molesting two young girls at his home, NY Daily News reported.
Miller faces three felony counts of child molestation, according to court records in which he is quoted as acknowledging there might be truth to the allegations.
Miller was arrested Friday and faces between two and 12 years in prison if the allegations of sexual molestation are true, the IndyStar reported.
One of the alleged victims, a 10-year-old girl, told her father about the alleged incident involving Miller following the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault allegations.
The young girl told investigators that Miller touched her buttocks, under her clothes, and “where the legs meet the groin,” according to court documents. The other girl told investigators that Miller touched her buttocks while he gave her a piggy-back ride.
“I defer to [the children]. If I’ve done something they’re uncomfortable (more…)
(CNS News) House Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) called on Special Counsel Robert Mueller — who is investigating alleged Russian collusion with the Trump 2016 campaign — to resign because there is an apparent conflict of interest involving Mueller and an alleged campaign to undermine the president and force him from office.
Rep. Gaetz also called for a special prosecutor to investigate the Uranium One scandal, the Clinton Foundation, and the Fusion GPS firm, which produced the “Russian dossier” alleging Trump-Russia collusion and which was paid by Obama for America’s law firm, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.
Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation is, in part, based on the Fusion GPS-provided “dossier.”
“We are at risk of a coup d’état in this country if we allow an unaccountable person [Mueller] with no oversight to undermine the duly-elected president of the United States,” (more…)
