Obama Left Whole Lot of Mess for Trump to Handle in the White House…Literally

America has long speculated Obama might have left a few holdovers in the White House as well as in other relevant branches, such as the DOJ, HUD, and others. However, Trump and his administration might have finally identified some of Obama’s leaks, or should we say, they made their exposure much easier.

Now, aside from these everyday human threats in the White House, Obama left something else that had Trump ready for action.

Namely, maintenance workers have been asked to report on mice within the White House Navy and the White House Situation Room. Aside from this, there were also four reported cockroach situations as well as an ant epidemy.

The problem stemmed from back when Obama was in charge.

‘The work orders submitted in 2017 are similar in number to those made in 2016 during the final year of the Obama administration,’ as News4’s reports in their federal record review.

The document is a collection of requests made immediately after Inauguration Day, with some of them being made by top-level staffers working inside the White House. The records elaborate topics that would allow the governmental structure to be ameliorated in the days to come.

Other work requests, including orders for repairs, furniture, hanging pictures and paintings and other day-to-day tasks, such as replacing the toilet seat in the Oval Office.

All requests were reviewed by News4, with other orders still coming from the Public Buildings Service, including heating system repairs to furniture moves to pest control and repair of the door release button in the White House Situation Room. Similar requests have also been made, such as installing new draperies in the First Lady’s East Wing office, a request that distinctly demanded an “overall effect of the room being taller.”

 The same amount of work has been a repeat process over the years, as presidents left and entered the White House.
“It’s an enormous job. GSA is assigned to manage that job,” said former GSA Inspector General Brian Miller, who used to be in charge of monitoring the agency’s performance. “GSA hires contractors and subcontractors for the [maintenance] work. Then the agency must watch over the contractors.”

According to Miller and another ex-GSA staffer, all tasks ahead are a little tricky to do, because the White House’s historic value needs to stay intact. Due to this realization, each and every part of the White House, including the wallpapers and paints need to be treated with care.

Aside from this, the GSA provided staffers on site at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building merged with the White House, due to the number of orders asking for repairs or changes.

“They are old buildings,” Miller said. “Any of us who have old houses know old houses need a lot of work.”

The amount of these costs usually has the GSA spending roughly $100,000 per year.

Here you have the most specific and downright example of how Trump handles Obama’s everyday mess, even if it means starting with the tiniest of things.

Last week, reports indicated Stefan Halper, a Cambridge professor and longtime aide to some of Washington’s most powerful figures, was outed as an FBI informant planted inside Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. The New York Post writes: Halper made his first overture when he met with Page at a British symposium. The two remained in regular contact for more than a year, meeting at Halper’s Virginia farm and in Washington, DC, as well as exchanging emails. The professor met with Trump campaign co-chair Sam Clovis in late August, offering his services as a foreign-policy adviser, The Washington Post reported Friday, without naming the academic. … Days later, Halper contacted Papadopoulos by e-mail. The professor offered the young and inexperienced campaign aide $3,000 and an all-expenses-paid trip to London, ostensibly to write a paper about energy in the eastern Mediterranean region. Here are a few fast facts about Halper’s history in politics. Got His Start in Nixon/Ford Years The Stanford and Oxford-educated Halper started his career in government in 1971 as a member of President Richard Nixon’s Domestic Policy Council. The foreign policy expert served as the Office of Management and Budget’s Assistant Director of Management and Evaluation Division between 1973-1974. Halper then served as an assistant to all three of President Gerald Ford’s Chief of Staffs — Alexander Haig, Donald Rumsfeld, and Dick Cheney — until 1977. Accused of Leading a Spy Ring Inside Jimmy Carter’s Presidential Campaign The Reagan-Bush presidential campaign hired Halper to serve as Director of Policy Coordination in 1980 and would later be embroiled in the Debategate affair, a scandal in which CIA operatives were accused of leaking the Carter campaign’s foreign policy positions to the Republican ticket. The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald reports: Four decades ago, Halper was responsible for a long-forgotten spying scandal involving the 1980 election, in which the Reagan campaign – using CIA officials managed by Halper, reportedly under the direction of former CIA Director and then-Vice-Presidential candidate George H.W. Bush – got caught running a spying operation from inside the Carter administration. The plot involved CIA operatives passing classified information about Carter’s foreign policy to Reagan campaign officials in order to ensure the Reagan campaign knew of any foreign policy decisions that Carter was considering. Halper also worked as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs during President Ronald Reagan’s first term. Had a Stint as a Bank Executive In 1984, Halper was chairman of three financial institutions — National Bank of Northern Virginia, Palmer National Bank, and George Washington National Bank. White House official Oliver North wired loaned funds from the Palmer National Bank to a Swiss bank account, which were later used to aid the contras. Believed Hillary Clinton Would Be a Better Steward for U.S.-UK Relations In March 2016, Halper told Russia’s Sputnik News that he believed then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton would prove to be a steadier hand in preserving the “special relationship” enjoyed by the United States and Britain. “I believe Clinton would be best for US-UK relations and for relations with the European Union. Clinton is well-known, deeply experienced and predictable. US-UK relations will remain steady regardless of the winner although Clinton will be less disruptive over time,” Halper said.
