President Trump's 2020 campaign says it's releasing a line of merchandise featuring a new slogan: "Get over it."

Context: The line comes from Trump Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, who declared in a press conference yesterday that Michael McKinley, a longtime diplomat who resigned over political interference in foreign policy, should "get over it."

“What you're seeing now, I believe, is a group of mostly career bureaucrats who are saying, you know, 'I don't like President Trump's politics so I'm going to participate in this witch hunt that they're undertaking on the Hill.'"
— Mick Mulvaney

That press conference made a big splash for another reason: Mulvaney said Trump had engaged in a quid pro quo with Ukraine — withholding military aid pending an investigation into a debunked theory about 2016 election interference.

  • Brad Parscale, Trump's campaign manager, said in a statement that the new slogan was pointed at Democrats "obsessed with theatrical witch hunts against their political rivals."
  • But Mulvaney's quote also reveals the suspicion of career public servants like McKinley, several of whom have recently accused Trump of pursuing his own interests, rather than the country's.

"Not enough": Protesters react to no murder charges in Breonna Taylor case

A grand jury on Wednesday indicted Brett Hankison, one of the Louisville police officers who entered Breonna Taylor's home in March, on three counts of wanton endangerment for firing shots blindly into neighboring apartments.

Details: Angering protesters, the grand jury did not indict any of the three officers involved in the botched drug raid on homicide or manslaughter charges related to the death of Taylor.

Louisville Metro Police Department said two officers were shot downtown in the Kentucky city late Wednesday, just hours after a grand jury announced an indictment in the Breonna Taylor case.

Details: A police spokesperson told a press briefing a suspect was in custody and that the injuries of both officers were not life-threatening. One officer was "alert and stable" and the other was undergoing surgery, he said.
