Strap in. It’s been a crazy week.

The “mainstream media” pennyless story after story that rocked Washington and a Trump administration.

If we wish a brief version, see 3 days of headlines from The Washington Post:

But if we wish a play-by-play, let’s get down to business.

First, The Washington Post reported that Donald Trump suggested personal information from a US fan to a Russians when they visited a Oval Office final week.

The Trump administration wheeled out National Security Adviser HR McMaster to face a media. He was in a room when a information was allegedly suggested by Mr Trump — Mr McMaster vehemently denied a allegations.

A few hours later, a President tweeted this contradiction:

On Tuesday, he attempted again:


Before a dirt had even staid on that, The New York Times forsaken another bombshell, this time stating that dismissed FBI executive James Comey wrote a memo observant a President asked him to finish a review into his sacked inhabitant confidence adviser, Michael Flynn.

What!? Oh boy.

He said

Apparently Nixon pronounced that as well, and what do we know, here’s Democratic Congressman Al Green job for an impeachment:

Settle down, Congressman. Impeachment stays rarely unlikely.


But it did locate those on Capitol Hill off guard. Except for Congressman Jason Chaffetz from Utah (the GOP’s conflict dog on Hillary Clinton) who clearly loves a good ole investigation:

A engorgement of committees have asked a FBI for some-more information — including copies of a memos. They’ve also urged Mr Comey to attest ASAP.

Now that would be a fascinating day.

When will we hear from Mr Comey? That’s a question. Tracking him down competence be tough:

By Wednesday…

Seriously. What’s a saying, “One tellurian year is 7 dog years”? Well, in a Trump administration one week feels like a year.

Reporters around DC were watchful for a Wednesday night drop, myself included.

All seemed still on a violation news front — and afterwards a Department of Justice announced a special warn would demeanour into all things Russia.

What followed was a cascade of violation stories — here’s a live demeanour during my phone:

Brain fry.

The special counsel

Rob Rosenstein, a Deputy Attorney-General, who we competence remember from prior episodes of Chaos in Trump Land where he wrote to a President propelling him to pouch Mr Comey. (Oh yeah, that guy.)

Well, he went from 0 to favourite in a space of a week for many on Capitol Hill, appointing former FBI executive Bob Mueller to run a review into a Trump debate and Russia.

For reference, these newest characters in a White House dramedy are Rob Rosenstein and Robert Mueller, pronounced:

Right. Now we’ve got that straight, relocating right along.

So, what do folks consider of Mueller?

A flattering good endorsement.

Some advise this competence indeed be a good outcome for Republicans who now can spin their courtesy behind to ruling while a review plays out, patting questions divided on a basement that a special warn is during work.

Others consider a White House should be worried.

What does Donald Trump think? It’s seems a reasonable time to drag out this twitter from 4 weeks before choosing day by then-candidate Trump:

Isn’t a internet grand?

Speaking of which, demeanour who else had a twitter about Mr Mueller shortly after he was announced as a male in assign of a investigation:


Stories that didn’t get as most airtime

A Washington Post news that pronounced infancy personality Kevin McCarthy suggested that Russian President Vladimir Putin pays Mr Trump. He apparently pronounced this before a election. Mr McCarthy pronounced it was a bad try during a joke:

And how about these infamous scenes outward a Turkish embassy after a revisit from a President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, that left 9 injured:

Oh, and this one from McClatchy that says sacked inhabitant confidence confidant Michael Flynn took income from a Turkish Government after being named into a role.

This competence come behind to haunt him:

Not surprisingly, here’s TIME magazine’s cover this week:

Sabre rattling

It’s been a tough time for a President, who was presented with this blade during a US Coast Guard Academy on Wednesday. Do we consider his attribute with a press is going to improve?

As for his derivation residence during Liberty University final weekend, it was as moving as Legally Blonde. No, seriously:

It’s been a diligent week though trust it or not, a subsequent 8 days could be even some-more complicated.

The President is streamer overseas, visiting Jewish, Christian and Muslim holy sites as partial of a pull for tellurian unity.

First stop, Saudi Arabia, where he’ll lunch with some-more than 50 Muslim leaders and broach what’s described as “an inspiring, approach debate on a need to confront radical beliefs and a president’s hopes for a pacific prophesy of Islam”.

Remember how he likes to go off script?

It’s going to be another engaging week.
