President Donald Trump’s personal assistant, his Oval Office gatekeeper since Day One of his administration, has “abruptly resigned” in the wake of the President discovering she had “indiscreetly” shared details about the President’s family and White House operations during an off-the-record dinner with reporters, according to NBC News and The New York Times.

Madeleine Westerhout, who officially was the Director of Oval Office Operations, is a former RNC staffer who “reportedly cried on election night because she was upset over Mr. Trump’s victory.” She later grew to be a big supporter of Trump. Her Twitter page shows a plethora of retweets of the president’s tweets, and her own commentary.

A federal government watchdog found Westerhout violated the Hatch Act last year.

In February she called leaking the president’s schedules, which revealed his ever-increasing “executive time,” “a disgraceful breach of trust.”

She was also not shy about making ugly attacks on Democrats:

She also called the President “incredibly kind and compassionate.”

CBS News adds that Trump “often referred to her as ‘my beauty.’”

Media reports said the FBI was searching for possible boxes of classified materials that Trump might have improperly removed from the White House when he left office.

America’s right-wing extremists have been hankering for a civil war for a long time now, and in particular have been eager to start using their guns in defense of Donald Trump ever since he came onto the political scene. They tried to start a civil war on Trump’s behalf after he lost on January 6, 2021.

So to no one’s great surprise, they’re currently flooding social media and right-wing media bandwidth with vows to begin a civil war on Trump’s behalf after the FBI executed a search warrant at the ex-president’s Florida waterfront estate, Mar-a-Lago, and seized evidence in a yet-unspecified investigation. The rhetoric is mostly a mixture of over-the-top hysteria and dark threats, and it’s being wielded by everyone from congressional Republicans to anonymous militiamen.
