“Yes, if we don’t get what we want…I will shut down the government. … I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I’m not going to blame you for it.”
Los Angeles Times White House correspondent Eli Stokols reported Tuesday that President Trump “stormed out” of the Oval Office after his contentious meeting with Democratic leaders and threw a folder full of papers out of frustration.
“He stormed out of the Oval, walked into an anteroom just off the Oval Office and had in his hand a folder of briefing papers. And he just scattered them out of frustration — threw them across the room,” Stokols said on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” citing his own reporting with White House officials.
Let's be very clear. Trump will do anything to stay in power. He will only go down very ugly. He will start a war, incite a civil war, put babies in cages, rob healthcare, collude with Russia, or give guns to Nazis if he thinks it will help him.https://t.co/YIkwDxXYzy

The reality of what Mike Flynn knows about Russian sanctions (or rather what Trump knew) is becoming more verifiable, just as KT McFarlands’ scuttled ambassadorship may loom larger… Flynn’s sentencing plea at 178 pages is interesting for what it doesn’t reveal or won’t be until the other indictments drop.
Washington (CNN) The answer to one of the most critical questions at the heart of the Russia investigation may well lie in the grand hallways of Mar-a-Lago.
Did President Donald Trump know Michael Flynn talked about sanctions during his conversations a year ago with the former Russian ambassador? Or did the President’s small circle of advisers keep it from him?
There can be little doubt, after Mueller’s filing, that he helped Mueller.
