White House Going For Broke Over Barrett

It's all or nothing.

The White House political operation is taking an all hands on deck take no prisoners approach to the Barrett nomination fight. Thank God.

Fox News has details, “Senior White House officials told Fox News that the team is broken into two parts: one focused on communications and the other focused on guiding Barrett through the process on Capitol Hill. Senior officials argued the team is ‘uniquely equipped’ for the mission: The White House communications team will consist of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who is a graduate of Harvard Law School and will take on the role of ‘lead spokesperson.’ Deputy Press Secretary Brian Morgenstern, a graduate of Columbia Law School, and White House communications officials Alyssa Farah and Ben Williamson, who are veterans of Capitol Hill and who have unique relationships with Republican leadership in both chambers of Congress, are also on the team. The communications team will also include White House staff who will be dedicated to a rapid response effort and research.” Here’s an example of McEnany at work.

“We will need to be knife fighters with the opposition, and will be prepared to marshal information quickly, and disseminate it to push back on any false narratives or attacks on her and her family, because we anticipate, unfortunately, that Democrats will go there,” a senior official told Fox.

“So we’re mounting an offensive strategy on her behalf because she is such an incredible and inspiring nominee,” the source continued. “We’ll be defending her fiercely every day.” The source is rumored to be first daughter Ivanka Trump.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows will command the operation. “He knows exactly the senators we’ll need to win over, and the issues that matter to them. He knows which senators to target that could bring over votes for her, and will help her to remain independent and speak to her own judicial record to win those key votes. He’s a Capitol Hill strategist…He’ll know ways to navigate those without telegraphing too much to get through the confirmation…Between Pat’s legal mind and Meadows’ Hill mind, we feel we have the strongest team in place to get through this.”
