The other problem with this brilliant strategy is that Trump was also seen with Kislyak at the Mayflower hotel.
In a short six months Trumpbuffoon has brought our country to a crisis of democracy (see the Josh Marshall diary). Go back and remember what we were talking about six months into Obama’s presidency, but today all the conversation is about collusion and conspiracy. What a waste! Today on the New Yorker Radio hour Maggie Haberman was interviewed about the “interview” she just did with Trump where she described his “management” style. She said normally the Chief of Staff is the gatekeeper to the President and it is impossible to get a meeting with him. Here, anyone can breeze in and out of Trump’s office, and they do, often interrupting briefings, and his “policy” is non-existent. Basically, he interacts with people. That is how he spends his days. It is so infuriating but at the same time I feel powerless and impotent while raging about it every day
You know things are F’ed up when we first hoped that Comey wouldn’t get fired, and now we’re in a position hoping that Sessions doesn’t get fired so that Mueller can then be fired.
