The FBI Really Loved James Comey, According to an Internal Survey — TIME

I strongly suspect Comey will be back, but not in this circus of a WH Administration.

(WASHINGTON) — Despite White House claims to the contrary, fired FBI Director James Comey was highly respected and trusted within the bureau during his nearly four-year tenure, according to internal survey results released Wednesday. The data detailing bureau attitudes about its leader contradict White House assertions that Comey, fired by President Donald Trump in May,…

The beginnings of a complex, necessary process that could destroy the top WH Admin as it now operates.

Any damaging evidence may tip the scales.

U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller is bearing down on former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort as he directs a wide-ranging probe into Russian interference in last year’s presidential election. Mueller’s team of investigators has sent subpoenas in recent weeks from a Washington grand jury to global banks for account information and records of transactions involving…

Will all the King’s horses and all the King’s men (and Family Compact) be able to put Trumpty-Dumpty together again?

(WASHINGTON) — Congressional investigators probing Russia’s meddling in the U.S. election will have their first opportunity this week to hear from someone in President Donald Trump’s innermost circle: son-in-law Jared Kushner. Kushner, who is a senior adviser to the president and is married to Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, will talk to staff on the Senate Intelligence…

Again, time will tell. Just one false move, and “You’re fired!”

In President Donald Trump’s operations, experience often takes a back seat to familiarity, trust, and a keen eye for what pleases the boss. So it made sense that Anthony Scaramucci was brimming with confidence when he took to the White House podium Friday, just hours after being named Trump’s new communications director.
