    Former NFL running back LenDale White claimed that a bag filled with $150,000 was left at his college apartment when he played at USC. White was an All-American running back at the University of Southern California. He shared time with former USC running back and Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush. Bush had his Heisman Trophy taken away from him after an investigation revealed Bush received luxurious benefits from school backers, which was a violation against the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). White shared a story, as he sat alongside former NFL running back Chris Johnson, about the benefits he received when he was a member of USC’s football program with Barstool Sport’s podcast Bussin’ With The Boys, hosted by former NFL player Will Compton and current NFL player Taylor Lewan. Compton and Lewan asked White about the benefits he received. “I hear stories about the $750,000 house,” White said. “My parents didn’t move when they say we was about to go to the draft.” Lewan quickly asked what kind of car he drove in college, and White answered with a...

    Connor Kennedy, 28, revealed on Instagram that he fought in Ukraine earlier this year Robert F. Kennedy's grandson, Connor, has revealed he secretly fought in Ukraine earlier this year despite having no military experience.  In an Instagram post, Connor, 28, said he was 'moved' to enlist in the Ukrainian International Legion - a branch of foreign volunteers - earlier this year after the Ukrainian forces made a desperate plea for help.  He didn't say when he fought, nor did he specify how long he was there, but he said he 'liked being a soldier' more than he'd expected.    'I wanted to help. When I heard about Ukraine’s International Legion, I knew I was going, and I went to the embassy to enlist the next day.  'I told one person here where I was, and I told one person there my real name.  'I didn’t want my family or friends to worry, and I didn’t want to be treated differently there.

    A group of students at the University of Southern Maine in Portland, Maine are calling for their professor to be fired after she said in class only two sexes exist.  Christy Hammer, a professor of education, allegedly made the statement during a heated debate about gender identity in her  'Creating a Positive Learning Environment' class, causing an uproar among the graduate students. Only one student agreed with the educator. The rest maintained both biological sexes and social genders are on a spectrum.  University of Southern Maine graduate students walked out of class this month and are demanding officials replace Christy Hammer Ph.D., an associate professor of education, over her remarks Others attending the the class say most agreed that a spectrum exists for both  gender and biological sex. The point was first made during class on September 7, but was repeated a week later after student Elizabeth Leibiger, who is non-binary and was absent the previous week, brought up the topic again.  She then said she felt 'under personal attack' after the professor again said only two sexes exist.

    DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have been involved for five years. He is now serving a 3½-year prison sentence. Before he left, we had a really rocky relationship. He cheated on me with multiple women, some of whom he continued on with while incarcerated. I was pregnant when he went away, and I am now raising our child alone. Fast-forward to the present: He and I are doing extremely well. I see major changes, and we truly believe we can make it work when he’s released at the end of next year. My problem is, I have done some things that are eating away at me. I have had numerous relations while he has been away, all the while letting him think I’m this perfect stay-at-home fiancee and mother. Although none of my affairs have been serious, I’m sure if he finds out, it would be the end of us.

    CNN has touched off a round of finger-pointing with a report that Team Trump falsely claimed to federal authorities that there were only “news clippings” in boxes stored at Mar-a-Lago. According to a new report authored by Jamie Gangel, former Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows is at the center of an attempt to mislead the National Archives about the documents that were being stored at Mar-a-Lago: A former top official in the Trump White House counsel’s office told the National Archives last fall that, according to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, there were only 12 boxes of records at Mar-a-Lago and they were just filled with newspaper clippings, a source familiar with the matter told CNN. The Archives was following up on information from the White House Office of Records Management that there were about two dozen boxes in the residence, according to the source. We know now that the evidence seized during the FBI in the search of  Mar-a-Lago included 100 documents marked classified, as well as “43 Empty Folders with ‘CLASSIFIED’ Banners.” On Friday night’s edition of...
    A Trump lawyer reportedly told officials there was no classified material at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate, saying there were only 12 boxes of "news clippings" stashed at the former president's Florida home before the government began making trips to the resort. Trump lawyer Pat Philbin made the claim to National Archives lawyer Gary Stern in a September 2021 call, relaying information he claimed to have received from former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, the Washington Post reported, citing sources aware of the call. JUDGE DENIES DOJ REQUEST ON CLASSIFIED DOCS AND APPOINTS TRUMP PICK AS SPECIAL MASTER In May 2021, months after Trump departed the White House, the National Archives reached out to Trump's team in pursuit of documents believed to be missing from the agency's collection of Trump records. Both sides continued discussions on and off in the months that followed. Philbin relayed to Stern in the September call that Meadows assured him no documents had been destroyed, according to the report. Stern was convinced that there were upward of two dozen boxes...

    California is in the grips of a deadly crisis! No, not the weeks-long 100-degree-plus temperatures blanketing the state. Heat waves come and go. I'm talking about something far more insidious. The state is being strangled to death in the clench of a 'climate cult.' All week every Californian with a cellphone has been receiving desperate text messages pleading with them to 'turn off your appliances' and turn down their air conditioning. Governor Gavin Newsom has been sending plaintive pleas thanking us for complying and urging us to continue with the rationing measures. You see -- California's electricity grid cannot cope with the additional demands put upon it by the hot weather. Newsom assures us our compliance will ensure that 'we can get through this together.' Governor Gavin Newsom (above) has been sending plaintive pleas thanking us for complying and urging us to continue with the rationing measures.  Get through what?

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: My wife and I had a houseguest for a few days, and we fell into discussing some books that I have. She, the guest, expressed interest in borrowing one, but I declined. I am a bibliophile and have had books borrowed and never returned, although I didn’t say that to the guest. I did say that, if she’d like, I would order her a copy of the book online, and that she’d have it when she got home. She declined. When she was readying to leave, I happened to notice that the book in question was missing from the shelf, and I told her that I would like it back before she left. Her response was to cast me as stingy, selfish, uncaring, etc., all of which I thought unfair and undeserved. She returned the book and departed. It was a bad moment all around, but, I thought, her doing. My wife, however, disagrees and thinks my behavior was petty and ill-considered. I would like to know your thoughts.

    Parents are furious at the £32,650-a-year American School in London for allegedly teaching their children there are ‘64 genders’ and standing by its 'woke agenda' despite a damming Ofsted report.  The school watchdog downgraded the private day school from 'outstanding' to 'requires improvement', saying there were 'failures' in education and leadership after it placed more weight on teaching 'social justice' than on learning 'subject-specific knowledge and skills'.  Interim head at ASL Sacha McVean defended the school to parents saying its programmes had the backing of schools leaders and the watchdog's inspection was 'unusual'.  Over 100 parents, who signed a letter to Ms McVean, were shocked that the private school is standing by its 'woke' agenda in light of the ‘devastating rebuke’ according to the Times.  Meanwhile some pupils told Ofsted their views were 'suppressed' in lessons.  Because of this, the school failed a number of Independent School Standards, which ban the 'promotion of partisan political views' and demand 'respect for those with other beliefs'.   A damming report said the £32,600-a-year American School in London (ASL) is now rated 'requires improvement' because...

    Trump era Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe says there is 'enough evidence' to indict 'multiple people' related to the origins of the investigation into Russian involvement with the former president's campaign. Ratcliffe told Special Counsel John Durham, sources told Fox News, that the indictments could be connected to Hillary Clinton's lawyers hacking Trump's servers to try and fabricate ties to his campaign and the Kremlin in order to distract from her own email scandal. Clinton allegedly approved 'a plan concerning U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server,' according to a CIA Counterintelligence Operational Lead (CIOL) first revealed when a heavily-redacted version became declassified in October 2020. The September 2016 memo was forwarded from the CIA to the FBI to the attention of then-FBI Director James Comey and then-Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok.

    A 'quick and devastating' takedown is ordered Four days after the Great Barrington Declaration was released, Collins instructed Fauci and Clifford Lane — the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Deputy Director for Clinical Research and Special Projects — to engage in a "takedown" of the anti-lockdown declaration, according to emails. The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis obtained and released emails between the public health officials. "This proposal from three fringe epidemiologists who met with the Secretary seems to be getting a lot of attention — and even a co-signature from Nobel Prize winner Mike Leavitt at Stanford," Collins wrote in an email sent on Oct. 8, 2020. "There needs to be a quick and devastating takedown of its premises,” Collins wrote in reference to the Great Barrington Declaration.

    West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin is forcing Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to pump the breaks on his goal of passing President Joe Biden's $1.75 trillion social and climate reform package by Christmas. In a letter sent to colleagues on Monday, Schumer again told lawmakers that the Build Back Better bill needs to pass by the end of the month.  And despite the legislative calendar ending at the end of this week, Schumer warned of 'more long days and nights, and potentially weekends' as the clock ticks down on several big items Congress needs to pass before year's end. 'Now that the House has passed the reconciliation bill, our goal in the Senate is to pass the legislation before Christmas and get it to the president’s desk,' Schumer wrote.  'Of course, there are other priorities we plan to address before the end of the year as well, including voting rights, debt limit, NDAA, among others.' Manchin, who opposes a paid family leave provision passed in the House's version, was asked about the letter and appeared hesitant to jump on...
    The mother of the teenage girl who was raped by a boy in a skirt in a Virginia school bathroom says she and her husband were pressured to remain silent about the incident, and had no idea their daughter's attacker had been allowed back in school until last month.  'We were silenced for many months,' Jessica Smith told DailyMail.com, in her first interview since her daughter was sexually assaulted by a 15-year-old classmate at Stone Bridge High School in Loudoun County in May.  'We were told not to say a word that could jeopardize our daughter's case.' The Virginia school district was thrust into the national spotlight earlier this year over accusations that it had covered up the attack.    The story exploded when her husband Scott Smith was dragged out of a school board meeting with a bloodied mouth after cops intervened when the furious dad confronted an audience member on June 22.  After the teen was arrested in July, school officials quietly transferred him to another high school in the district, even keeping the victim's parents in the dark. ...
    The most populous county in Maryland has implemented “psychoeducational lessons” that tell students there is a “dual pandemic” involving COVID-19 and “systemic racism,” according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch and first reported by Fox News Thursday.  Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) promoted materials like “Antiracist Baby” by Ibram X. Kendi in a PowerPoint obtained by Judicial Watch. It links to an audio reading of the book, which says “Babies are taught to be racist or antiracist, there’s no neutrality.” “Systems of Oppression identifies inequity by calling attention to the historical and organized patterns of mistreatment” a glossary for secondary students read. “In the United States systems of oppression (like systemic racism) are woven into the very foundation of American culture, society, and laws.” The most populous county in Maryland has implemented “psychoeducational lessons” that tell students there is a “dual pandemic” involving COVID-19 and “systemic racism,” according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch.

    Maryland's biggest county pushed a CRT-based 'psychoeducational lesson' on  students as young as five years old that taught them of a 'dual pandemic of COVID-19 and systemic racism' - and ordered teachers to buy a book written by anti-racist activist Ibram X. Kendi.  Montgomery County Public Schools Associate Superintendent Janet S. Wilson sent an email to principals announcing: 'All schools will be required to implement a student psychoeducational lesson during one of the school's mandatory Social-Emotional Learning block before September 18, 2020.  'This lesson will provide students crisis facts about the dual pandemic (COVID-19 and systemic racism) that is occurring around the country and here in Montgomery County.'

    According to new documents received by Judicial Watch and exclusively provided to Fox News, Maryland's most populous county, Montgomery County, launched a "psychoeducational lesson" teaching children in schools that there is a "dual pandemic" involving COVID-19 and "systemic racism." Materials recommended that teachers buy the Ibram X. Kendi book "Antiracist Baby" as "the perfect gift" for "ages baby to age 3." The documents come amid intense debate about critical race theory (CRT) in schools, after Virginia Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin won the 2021 governor's race on a platform banning CRT. Many parents have opposed CRT – a framework that involves deconstructing aspects of society to discover systemic racism beneath the surface – as divisive and racist. MCAULIFFE IN 2019: ‘DIVERSITY, INCLUSION' ARE ‘AS IMPORTANT AS’ MATH AND ENGLISH IN SCHOOLS "This material details how extremist race politics and CRT are being used to target children for political ends," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement on the documents. "Politics should immediately be removed from the curriculum of Montgomery County Schools. These CRT-laden teachings have no place in any...
    "Special Report" anchor Bret Baier appeared on "The Story" Wednesday to break down Republican Glenn Youngkin’s victory in Virginia’s gubernatorial race calling the result an "electoral political earthquake." BRET BAIER: I looked into the numbers. There are key things that [Glenn] Youngkin has managed to do in Virginia. One is, look at the Black vote. He got 13% of the Black vote. Donald Trump in 2020 got 11%. Mitt Romney got 8%. John McCain 4%. There is a Republican story to be told about the Black community and chipping away and getting more voters to pay attention. This is a race where the pundits said that Youngkin was blowing the racial dog whistle and trying to get Whites and White supremacists engaged in the race. That’s the dynamic in which more Black voters voted for the Republican than in the past. I do think this has ramifications broader, we will see in the next day or two that this means on Capitol Hill. I have Senator Joe Manchin on the show tonight about where moderates will be in the wake of what is an electoral political earthquake.

    A middle-distance runner’s health concerns were initially diagnosed by doctors as irritable bowel syndrome - but he later learned he actually had incurable cancer. Andrew McAslan, 25, is undergoing chemotherapy after receiving the devastating diagnosis of Stage Four Non-Hodgkin Follicular Lymphoma in July. 1The Manchester running star was told by multiple health professionals he had IBS but McAslan was right to be sceptical McAslan’s health concerns first arose in 2020, experiencing “strange symptoms'' for months, but it was in January when “explainable dips'' in his training and sporting performance prompted him to seek help.  “In training I didn’t feel like myself and I was sort of running ok, but not feeling great,” McAslan told The Mirror. The Manchester athlete - now living in Leeds -  was told his condition was likely IBS but McAslan was sceptical. He pushed for blood tests which revealed low iron and haemoglobin levels.  He began taking iron tablets which began making a small difference but were “not amazing”.  “I actually did a race, even though my training wasn’t going that well.

    Furious parents are demanding the resignation of Loudoun County Schools Superintendent Scott Ziegler who claimed on June 22 that the school had received no reports of sexual assaults by trans kids in bathrooms, four weeks after a girl told teachers she'd been raped in the bathrooms by a male 'in a skirt'.  On June 22, Ziegler, who earns $295,000 as the school superintendent - a job he took over in January - told a crowded school board meeting: 'To my knowledge, we don’t have any record of assaults occurring in our restrooms.  He then went further, calling it a debunked theory that a transgender person is more likely to sexually assault a cisgender person, and that the 'predatory trans person does not exist'.  'I think it’s important to keep our perspective on this, we’ve heard it several times tonight from our public speakers but the predator transgender student or person simply does not exist,' he said.   Four weeks earlier, Scott Smith's 15-year-old daughter told teachers she was raped in the girls' bathrooms at Stone Bridge High School in Leesburg, Virginia, by...

The Argentine, 34, had agreed reduced terms in order to stay with Ronald Koeman's side. 2Lionel Messi was in tears during his Barcelona exit press conferenceCredit: Rex But when he arrived to sign on the dotted line, the six-time Ballon d'Or winner was told that Barca simply couldn't afford it. Recalling the moment, he told France Football: "I didn't expect it at all. "In my head, I was going to go [back to Barcelona], sign and start training straight away. "I thought that everything was set and I just needed to sign it. But when I got there, they told me that it wasn't possible anymore. "They told me that I couldn't stay and that I'd have to find a new club because they couldn't renew my contract. It changed my plans. "It was extremely difficult to accept. To think that we were going to have to leave our home, the family were going to have their routines turned upside down, the kids...
    An office within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) specifically created for real-time threat alerts failed to notify the Pentagon when violent Trump supporters stormed the Capitol on January 6 until after it was breached with lawmakers inside, a new report reveals Wednesday.  More than 30 minutes after rioters began pushing past police barricades, an internal Army email addressed to senior leaders and obtained by Politico was sent at 1:40 p.m. 'There are no major incidents of illegal activity at this time,' it read.  The email update came from information sent by Homeland Security's National Operations Center (NOC), part of the Office of Operations Coordination.  At the time, the department was being led by Acting Secretary Chad Wolf.  DHS's website touts NOC as a primary hub for 'situational awareness' that 'provides timely reporting' of developing incidents to leaders on the state, local and federal level. Those updates are sent out to the Army Operations Center and then forwarded to relevant Army officials.  But on January 6, the NOC update for 1:30 p.m. didn't pick up on any danger in the...
    Donald Trump's White House ordered the Pentagon to delay and minimize reports of brain injuries to U.S. troops in a missile attack in Iraq last year, according to a former senior official. The attack was launched by Iran in retaliation after the Trump administration ordered a drone strike to kill a senior Iranian general, Qassem Soleimani. But Alyssa Farah, Department of Defense press secretary at the time, said the White House sought to avoid giving ammunition to critics who believed Trump had put Americans in harm's way with such a hastily conceived plan.  'There was an effort from the White House to want to say, you know, the Iranians were not successful in harming our targets,' Farah told a new podcast, One Decision, hosted by former CNN journalist Michelle Kosinski and the former head of Britain’s MI6 intelligence agency, Sir Richard Dearlove. 'And I think that went too far, and I think that it ended up glossing over what ended up being very significant injuries on US troops after the fact.' Alyssa Farah said the Pentagon was told by...
    WAKIL KOHSAR/AFP via Getty Images Hundreds of students and alumni of the American University of Afghanistan were told “there will be no more rescue flights” on Sunday, prompting many to go into hiding. Students were further alarmed upon learning that the U.S. military had given a list of their names and passport information to Taliban officials guarding the airport in Kabul, according to a report from the New York Times. “They told us: we have given your names to the Taliban,” a 24-year-old sophomore studying business administration told the Times. “We are all terrified, there is no evacuation, there is no getting out.” About 600 students and alumni had gathered at a safehouse on Sunday to gather before attempting to flee the country. However, upon arriving at the airport, they were turned away due to evacuation flights ending as the U.S. focuses on removing its personnel ahead of the Aug. 31 deadline. “I regret to inform you that the high command at HKIA in the airport has announced there will be no more rescue flights,” an email shared with the...
    The rapid US withdrawal from Afghanistan that has left the gate open for the Taliban to surge to power may come as a surprise to some, but President Biden has been in favour of pulling out for years.  In 2010, Biden reportedly told Richard Holbrooke, then Obama’s special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, that the US had to leave Afghanistan regardless of the cost for the Afghan people.  According to Holbrooke, when Biden was asked about America's obligation to maintain their presence in Afghanistan to protect vulnerable civilians, he scornfully replied by referencing the US exit from southeast Asia in 1973. ‘F*** that, we don’t have to worry about that. We did it in Vietnam, Nixon and Kissinger got away with it.'   Despite widespread claims that the intelligence community knew Kabul could fall to the Taliban within weeks if the US quickly withdrew the bulk of its military assets, Biden went over the heads of his military advisors and oversaw a hasty evacuation of US personnel.  President Biden delivered strong remarks on Monday about the situation in Afghanistan and defended...
    Sitting at the edge of the pier with the waves gently lapping at her toes, the warm Caribbean breeze blowing and a full moon overhead, it could not have been a more perfect night.  Beside her, an old friend laughed and reminisced as the wine and whisky flowed. But within a couple of hours, this peaceful scene would descend into a 'living nightmare'.  A single gunshot pierced the night air, followed by a scream – then a splash as a body entered the water. And Jasmine Hartin's life would never be the same again. Today, the horrific chain of events on the night the 32-year-old socialite accidentally shot dead her good friend, Belize police superintendent Henry Jemmott, can be revealed in detail for the first time.

    Former New York Jets general manager Ryan Tannenbaum recently shared a great story about why Brett Favre joined the team. During a recent interview on BroBible’s “Endless Hustle” podcast, Tannenbaum revealed that the pitch to Favre involved mandatory hunting and fishing on Tuesdays. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Tannenbaum also agreed to throw in some custom camo pants for the legendary passer. Watch him break the situation down below about how they got Favre from the Packers. RECRUITING FAVRE Former @nyjets GM @RealTannenbaum‘s method for securing @BrettFavre to the Jets is nothing short of GENIUS. At our core, our needs are all very basic. Even Hall of Famers.

The former Packers superstar is well-known for being an avid outdoorsman. While the New York Jets might not seem like a team surrounded by hunting land, that’s apparently a misconception.

    Ellen DeGeneres announced on Wednesday her long-running daytime talk show, "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," will be coming to an end in 2022 after 19 seasons. The Emmy-winner, 63, sat down with Oprah Winfrey on Thursday's episode to chat about the difficult decision. DeGeneres admitted one of the hardest moments was letting her large staff and crew know.  "There were tears. It was really hard because I do love everyone here. We do have a relationship," she said. "You know, it's every single day for me. I come in every day and this is my life and theirs too. But I wanted to give them a year. I wanted to give them enough time to know. I didn't want to do it the last year I was here. I wanted to give them a year to celebrate with me and stay with me."

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: I was recently reminded of a situation in which I acted badly. Due to COVID restrictions, this is not a scenario likely to come up again soon, but I am hoping you can tell me what the mannerly approach would have been, so I can do better in the future. Last year, I was invited to a cookie decorating party. My job is to work with children who have significant behavioral challenges, and it had been a particularly stressful year. I declined the invitation, stating that I was too stressed out from work to go. (It had been the kind of year where, when I got home from work, I would crawl into my bed and hide under my comforter for a couple of hours.) The day of the event, my friend called to ask me if I would reconsider and attend her party. The truth was, I had declined the invitation because I suspected kids might be in attendance. I’ve found that when work is really stressful, I cannot be around children because I cannot turn...

    A bride has been slammed as 'mean' and 'malicious' after telling her brother her wedding was cancelled. The bride, who was given the pseudonym Karen, had asked her sibling Matt if she could borrow $15,000 to pay the suppliers two days before the big day, according to a Reddit user from the US. When Matt refused, he reportedly got a phone call 10 minutes later from one of Karen's bridesmaids telling him it was off.  Posting on the subreddit r/weddingshaming, the user said Karen tried to same tactic with all her family members including her grandmother and aunts, and promptly uninvited them when they failed to cough up. 'This happened a few years ago. Names are changed to protect the guilty,' they explained.

    A chilling new docuseries probes whether John Wayne Gacy may have murdered more than the 33 victims he was convicted of killing.      John Wayne Gacy: Devil in Disguise, released Thursday on Peacock, details the serial killer's shocking crimes, which took place in suburban Chicago during the 1970s.  Gacy - who became known as the 'serial killer clown' due to his penchant for dressing up as a circus entertainer - lured his young male victims to his home, before raping, torturing and strangling them.   The remains of 29 victims were found at Gacy's property. Four others were dumped in a nearby river.   The depravity of Gacy's crimes shocked the nation, and he was executed in 1994 after spending more than a decade on death row.  But one detective who worked on the case tells producers of the new miniseries that there could be a dozen additional men who Gacy killed.  'I firmly believe there's more,' retired Detective Rafael Tovar states in one episode of Devil In Disguise, streaming now on Peacock.  A chilling new docuseries probes whether John Wayne...
    Supporters of US President Donald Trump protest in the US Capitol Rotunda on January 6, 2021, in Washington, DC.Saul Loeb | AFP | Getty Images A retired New York Police officer seen on surveillance video shaking a tambourine while walking around inside the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 with a mob of Trump supporters was arrested Tuesday morning. Sara Carpenter, 51, is the latest in a number of former or current members of law enforcement to be charged in connection with the riot, which began with protests against the election of President Joe Biden. Carpenter, who voluntarily surrendered Tuesday, told FBI agents in January that she went to the Capitol with others after hearing then-President Donald Trump instruct them to "march to the Capitol," according to a court filing. The riot left five people dead, including Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick. Two other police officers who defended the Capitol that day killed themselves on the heels of the riot, which injured nearly 140 other cops.CNBC PoliticsRead more of CNBC's politics coverage: White House officials met with energy industry reps...
