    We will surely see.

    Trump Is Likely To Get Rid Of The Special Counsel, One Way Or Another
    There are several paths if he wants to take them. The key is maintaining deniability


    I recently wrote an article expressing the view that President Trump being under criminal investigation removes the cover Trump might have had to get rid of Special Counsel Bob Mueller, and greatly increases his political and legal jeopardy if he did so.

    What I didn’t say, as several readers pointed out, was that he won’t do it anyway, I think he will, despite the heightened risk ...

    The good, bad, and ugly of Trump’s new Cuba policy

    ... Much more dubious is Trump’s policy of tightening restrictions on travel to Cuba by Americans. I can understand the point that such travel often enriches the regime. On the other hand, travel restrictions are a significant infringement on freedom, and it is far from clear that they actually do much to undermine the government’s grip on power ...

    Opinion | The good, bad, and ugly of Trump’s new Cuba policy

    Trump's new Cuba policy has both good points and bad points. But his condemnation of Cuban repression rings hollow so long as he continues to bar most Cuban refugees from the US.

    Trump’s temperament and ongoing legal troubles are scaring off potential candidates for top posts
    And those vacancies are becoming a serious safety and security concern

    President Donald Trump’s volatile temperament, an intensifying investigation into his aides’ possible collusion with Russia, and his firing of FBI Director James Comey, have made it a challenge to recruit and fill top leadership posts across the government, according to the Washington Post.

    “Republicans say they are turning down job offers to work for a chief executive whose volatile temperament makes them nervous,” according to the Post, which interviewed 27 people — including federal officials, Republican party activists, lobbyists, as well as candidates who Trump officials have tried to recruit — as part of its investigation ...

    PROFILES IN COURAGE: WHY REPUBLICANS MAY RIDE THE TRUMP TRAIN OFF A CLIFF
