    ... The war cry was loudest on Fox News, where close Trump confidant Sean Hannity raged that “Mueller has ostensibly tonight declared war against the president of the United States. Clearly his objective is to remove him from office.”

    Trump Is So Angry, He Mostly Just Eats and Watches TV: Report

    Newsweek

    Updated | President Donald Trump is so angry about the FBI’s raid on his personal lawyer Michael Cohen, that he is spending much of time brooding, eating or just watching TV. Several people close to the president told The New York Times that Trump had what they described as a “meltdown” over the raid, which was related to Cohen making a $130,000 hush payment to the porn star Stormy Daniels ...

    Kelly cedes control to new faces amid latest Trump tumult

    By Kaitlan Collins and Kevin Liptak, CNN


    ... John Kelly, who now finds his standing in the White House similarly fractured, has adopted a different approach. Sources inside the West Wing say Kelly has attempted no such effort to insert himself into the President's daily interactions. Now less engaged in West Wing decisions and less visible in Trump's day-to-day, Kelly has found himself on a downward slide, sources familiar with the situation said.

    Senate confirms a former coal lobbyist as Scott Pruitt’s second-in-command at EPA

    By Steven Mufson, Brady Dennis and Dino Grandoni


    ... Andrew Wheeler worked at the EPA more than two decades ago and later served as an adviser to Sen. James M. Inhofe (R-Okla.), a high-profile critic of climate science who famously brought a snowball to the Senate floor as a prop. For the past nine years, Wheeler has been a lobbyist for a variety of companies, including Appalachian coal mining firm Murray Energy.

    By Robert Costa


    ... The first step, these people say, would be for Trump to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the work of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and in recent days signed off on a search warrant of Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen.

    ... Pruitt demanded the agency “enter into a $100,000 per month contract to rent a private jet, which would have cost more than the administrator’s annual travel budget of approximately $450,000,” a situation Chmielewski says he prevented from happening, probably to the detriment of his employment;

    Stormy Daniels’ Motion to Depose Trump Is on Stunningly Solid Legal Footing
    By JEREMY STAHL


    ... As I’ve reported, Daniels’ legal challenge to a contract made with Cohen’s Essential Consultants LLC for her to stay quiet about an alleged affair with Trump is stunningly strong. Her case rests on the claim that Trump never agreed to the deal, which would mean the contract was never actually formed.

    This is what Obama told Comey after Trump's election
    Catherine Garcia


    At a time when not very many people were nice to him, former FBI Director James Comey says he was consoled by President Barack Obama. Obama told him: "I picked you to be FBI director because of your integrity and your ability, I want you to know that nothing — nothing — has happened in the last year to change my view."
