A mini-briefing today. Monday is Columbus Day. Full briefings resume Wednesday, although there may be another mini-briefing or two.
1) It appears as though FEMA has removed Puerto Rico statistics from its website. WaPo reported on this last night, and NPR said they found statistics on a Spanish-language website.
2) Axios is reporting that CIA Director Pompeo is being considered to take Tillerson’s place as Secretary of State. Now, there’s no indication that Tillerson is going anywhere, but this is a pretty typical flow of events for this administration. Someone contradicts the president -> that someone gives the “this is fine, everything is fine” speech/statement -> some Friday rolls around and said person resigns/is fired.
