Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Saturday she has withdrawn from consideration as UN ambassador. CNN reported last month there appeared to be no urgency from the White House or Republicans to confirm Nauert, a former Fox News anchor who started working at the State Department in 2017. Trump made the announcement he was picking Nauert in a tweet in early December, and months later the nomination still had not been made official and there were no dates set for a Senate confirmation hearing. Multiple sources told CNN they felt that was a sign of trouble for her.

"There have been predictions of a stormy ride in confirmation, with many on the Hill saying this was a job done‎ by Henry Cabot Lodge, Madeleine Albright, Daniel Moynihan, Jeane Kirkpatrick, Richard Holbrooke, Bill Richardson ... and now a Fox News presenter?"a senior diplomatic source told CNN.

CNN's KFile reported last week that Nauert once hosted a panel on unfounded conspiracy theories that Islamic fundamentalists are secretly trying to destroy America by imposing Sharia law."

Well, that means Sean is still available.

Nearly all of the many-dozens of scandal-ridden Trump nominated officials have blamed their families for their retirements immediately following ethics investigations. Nauert did the same.
