Unnamed White House Official Says Trump Is 'Completely F-ed'

"Donald Trump only sweats the small stuff".
The cloud hanging over the White House mushroomed in February when Trump's national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned over concerns about his meetings with Russia's ambassador in Washington.
Press Secretary Sean Spicer spoke with reporters today about what James Comey wrote in his explosive memo on President Trump's request that he stop his probe on Michael Flynn.
But the swirling questions about his conduct were clearly on his mind when he told graduates at the US Coast Guard Academy in CT that "no politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly". It sends that resolution to the Judiciary Committee if it feels the conduct is objectionable. "I'll be forced to issue him with a reprimand because he did not share these secrets with us". "It would be good for the country".
The White House, for the second time in a week, is scrambling to protect the president from his own questionable actions after he reportedly passed highly classified intelligence to two top Russian officials during an Oval Office meeting. We can only hope. Yet US allies and some members of Congress have expressed alarm. "As President, I wanted to share with Russian Federation (at an openly scheduled WH meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining.to terrorism and airline flight safety".
Last week, Senator Grassley had downplayed concerns about Comey's firing, telling those anxious to "suck it up". "I want it to end, ' that's one thing", he continued. Really, if a freshman can refuse to spin for the White House, why can't lawmakers with years of seniority in no danger of losing their seats?
The news of the Russian meeting also came a day after Mr Trump dismissed Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey from his post. The FBI investigation into the Russian impact on the 2016 election must continue.
At first his subordinates gave a justification for it that was completely unrelated with interfering with an ongoing proceeding, but then in an interview with Lester Holt of NBC News, Trump basically said that they had all been lying and that the reason he did it was to wind up the Russian Federation investigation because he thought the Russian Federation investigation was a big fake.
The official said aides are seeking to avoid a repeat of the critical coverage of White House statements in recent days.
We need to get the facts out in the open. Oh, she's just trying to save her swing seat, you say? The president's critics say the disclosure could compromise the source of the intelligence provided by a USA ally and make other nations wary about sharing sensitive information with the United States. "I don't know that you could say the same about the president".
Republican congressman Justin Amash told The Hill that if reports were true about Mr Trump's pressure on Mr Comey, it would merit impeachment. Republicans will begin to realize that their agenda is going nowhere and that their political survival depends on Trump's political demise. This would take time and delay any conclusion by many months. And since the people who are in office in the Republican Party are elected by people who listen nearly exclusively to the self-contained conservative media they have much less incentive to actually do something because they fear they will be punished by their constituents if they were to betray or abandon the president of the United States.

Mueller was appointed Wednesday by Rosenstein, who had faced criticism as the author of a memo that preceded Comey's firing. Rosenstein's decision to name a special counsel seems to have helped redeem his reputation as a nonpartisan operative.
Now, with the eyes of the world upon him, the president will embark on his big trip carrying the baggage of dire troubles at home. When President Clinton went on trips, questions followed about the various investigations surrounding him and his administration.
This is risky business that the first choice for National Security Advisor turned out to be a liar in the White House. The White House, Spicer explained, was skeptical of Yates because she was "not exactly a supporter of the president".
