Trump's "War Room" Gets Its Own Official Publication

Andrew Breitbart, Rest-In-Something (and take your successor with you)

Three guesses as to what it is, and the first two don't count...

The document carves out an exemption from ethics rules to those on the receiving end, including chief of staff Reince Priebus, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway, and chief strategist Steve Bannon.
As the Washington Post reports, the waiver gives Bannon “permission to communicate with Breitbart News, the conservative website he used to run.”
The continued connection between Breitbart and the Trump White House is no surprise, and the murky ties between the right-wing site and Trump donor Rebekah Mercer recently led the U.S. Senate Daily Press Gallery to deny Breitbart’s bid to receive a permanent pass to cover Congress.
What the waiver does is grant Bannon to shape the coverage and tone of a pro-Trump propaganda outlet with a sordid history of white supremacist content, while working in his taxpayer-financed White House position.

There was one thing about this story that surprised me -- The White House still has ethics rules? Who knew?
