    National Security
    Release of disputed GOP memo on FBI surveillance unleashes waves of recrimination

    By Devlin Barrett, Karoun Demirjian and Philip Rucker

    ... It accuses officials who approved the surveillance applications — a group that includes Rosenstein, Comey, his former deputy Andrew McCabe and then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates — of signing off on court surveillance requests that omitted key facts about the political motivations of the person supplying some of the information, Christopher Steele, a former intelligence officer in Britain.

    Levin Report
    “TRUMP TRULY DOESN’T UNDERSTAND ANY OF THIS:” WHITE HOUSE CONFIRMS IDIOTIC STOCK-MARKET STANCE
    After a plunge that would have humbled another administration, Trump & Co. have announced they’ll “still claim credit” for market gains

    Donald Trump, a historical anomaly in more ways than one, has made it a habit to rhapsodize the ballooning market, despite the fact that, according to experts, he has almost nothing to do with it. But on Monday afternoon, a market plunge laid bare the idiocy of that strategy: following a global sell-off, the the Dow ended down 1,175 points, or 4.6 percent, at 24,346. On Tuesday, after a wild day in which the Dow opened down 568 points, the index more or less recovered, vacillating between a low of 23,778.74 points and a high of 24,946.23, before closing at 24,912.77 ...

    EVEN TRUMP’S LAWYERS ARE WORRIED HE’LL LIE TO MUELLER

    ... On Monday, The New York Times reported that John Dowd,Trump’s lawyer in the Russia probe, and his deputy, Jay Sekulow, along with a number of West Wing advisers, think it would be unwise for Trump to speak with the special counsel about his campaign’s Russian ties and whether he obstructed justice.

    Why Trump's parade will lead Republicans over a cliff

    ... It amazes me, still, that even now Republicans in Washington can’t seem to grasp the existential peril in all of this time traveling. Make no mistake: They don’t love Trump, and they wouldn’t prefer him as president; they’ve just decided, by and large, that protecting Trump from judgment is the likeliest route to protecting their majorities.

    “BEYOND DISBELIEF”: JOHN KELLY’S DEFENSE OF ROB PORTER ROILS THE WEST WING
    Staff Secretary Rob Porter, who has been accused of abusing his former wives, is Kelly’s right hand—and dating Hope Hicks, one of Trump’s closest confidantes. But Kelly’s declaration that Porter is a man of “true integrity and honor” was seen as deeply tone deaf

    ... Kelly’s decision to back Porter has left many people inside the White House angry, two sources with knowledge of the matter said. On Wednesday afternoon, Porter resigned. Axios reported Kelly wanted Porter to “stay and fight.”
