Posted May 15, 2017

One of the weirdest details about the chaos roiling the White House in the aftermath of James Comey's firing Tuesday night was Press Secretary Sean Spicer speaking to reporters in "near darkness" after spending "several minutes hidden in the bushes".

Business conflicts of interest, tax returns, secret Comey tapes, the Russian Federation probe - all we need is control of the committees and subpoena power and we'll put Trump through the wringer.

Might not do much to motivate independents, though. However, Trump refuted that saying the decision to remove Comey was exclusively made by him and would have done so irrespective of the recommendation. This is good fodder for party loyalists on both sides but the mass of more apolitical voters doesn't seem to be tilting hard one way or the other.
