    Trump Jr. appears to contradict father’s claim he never told Comey he hoped FBI director would end Flynn probe


    ... “I think it’s clear that everything that went on in the Comey testimony was basically ridiculous,” Trump Jr. told Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night. “You and I both know my father a long time. When he tells you to do something, guess what, there’s no ambiguity in it. There’s no, ‘Hey, I’m hoping.’ You and I are friends, ‘Hey, hope this happens but you get to do your job.’ That’s what he told Comey” ...

    Talking about a "Lame Duck" presidency, Pence would definitely be that if the Donald gets impeached.


    Would Pence Be a Better President? Republicans Think So As Trump Impeachment Calls Grow


    Donald Trump is president. That much is true. But apparently, nearly every politician in his party would prefer that Trump's No. 2 take his position in the Oval Office.

    The news site Axios reported Monday morning that Republicans' overwhelming support of Vice President Mike Pence compared to the president is a potential "landmine" for the former reality TV star turned leader of the free world ...

    THE CLOUD OVER JEFF SESSIONS’S HEAD JUST GOT DARKER
    The attorney general helped fire Jim Comey. The former F.B.I. director may be returning the favor


    ... Even so, Sessions had cannily managed to stay on the periphery of the scandal—until yesterday; Comey was quizzed by California Senator Kamala Harris, who is becoming the breakout Democratic star of the intelligence committee’s hearings. Harris wanted to know more about the conversation in which Comey pleaded with Sessions to keep Trump from interfering with the F.B.I. ”You write [in Comey’s prepared statement] that he did not reply,” Harris said, in the deceptively casual tone that made her a highly-successful prosecutor in San Francisco. “What did he do, if anything? Did he just look at you? Was there a pause for a moment?” ...
