Rosenworcel with now-FCC Chairman Ajit Pai (Federal Communications Commission photo via Flickr)

President Trump has withdrawn the nomination of former Democratic FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel to serve another term on the commission, according to congressional records. The withdrawal came on Tuesday.

Key context: Rosenworcel's nomination is one of many that the president has pulled back. A Republican congressional aide said the White House's intent was not immediately clear. The Huffington Post's Sam Stein and Ryan Grim were the first to note that the White House was withdrawing the nominations en masse including, they reported, nominees supported by Republicans.

Background: Rosenworcel's re-nomination was tied up in partisan fighting in the last Congress. She left the FCC in January when her term ran out, but President Obama re-upped her nomination before he left office.

Why it matters: It may raise questions about efforts to fill up the five-member FCC — which has an open seat to be filled by a Republican, in addition to Rosenworcel's former seat. No more than three commissioners can belong to a single party. Tradition has long held that the administration relies on congressional leaders from the opposing party to identify the nominees for the two other seats, but it's unclear if the Trump administration will follow that tradition.

A group of 10 Democratic and 10 Republican senators (the "G20") tasked with negotiating an infrastructure deal with the White House has released a statement in support of a $1.2 trillion framework.

Why it matters: Details regarding the plan have not yet been released, but getting 10 Republicans on board means the bill could get the necessary 60 votes to pass.

DOJ drops criminal probe, civil lawsuit against John Bolton over Trump book

The Justice Department has closed its criminal investigation into whether President Trump's former national security adviser John Bolton disclosed classified information with his tell-all memoir, “The Room Where it Happened," according to a source with direct knowledge.

Why it matters: The move comes a year after the Trump administration tried to silence Bolton by suing him in federal court, claiming he breached his contract by failing to complete a pre-publication review for classified information. Prosecutors indicated they had reached a settlement with Bolton to drop the lawsuit in a filing on Wednesday.
