Trump, annoyed by resignation letter, pushes out Mattis earlyOn Thursday, Mattis had abruptly said he was quitting, effective Feb. 28, after falling out with Trump over his foreign policy, including surprise decisions to withdraw all troops from Syria and start planning a drawdown in Afghanistan. Trump has come under withering criticism from fellow Republicans, Democrats and international allies over his decisions about Syria and Afghanistan, against the advice of his top aides and U.S. commanders. The exit of Mattis, highly regarded by Republicans and Democrats alike, added to concerns over what many see as Trump’s unpredictable, go-it-alone approach to global security.

Person claimed ricin was in letter sent to Senator Collins home

Person claimed ricin was in letter sent to Senator Collins homeA suspicious letter sent to the Maine home of Republican U.S. Senator Susan Collins had a note saying it contained the deadly poison ricin, the senator’s office said on Tuesday, adding any affected areas had been cleared. No one was harmed in the incident that took place on Monday and Collins’ office did not comment on whether the letter sent to Tom Daffron, the senator’s husband, actually contained ricin. “Mr. Daffron, their dog, and parts of their home were quarantined while the crime lab undertook an analysis of the premises,” Annie Clark, a spokeswoman for Collins said in a statement, adding that “the incident is the latest in a series of threats against Senator Collins, her loved ones, and her staff.” Collins was thrust into the national spotlight this month when she became a key vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, delivering a major victory to President Donald Trump, who has now locked in a conservative majority on the court.
