Under Siege

With the release of former Trump transition team member Rep. Devin Nunes’ memo, President Trump and House Republicans intensified their attacks against our nation’s institutions as if they were attempting to breach the fortress of Hornburg in the battle of Helm’s Deep.

Nunes, the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, previously won the heart of the Trump White House last March when he revealed intel allegedly showing the Trump campaign had been (unjustly) under surveillance (which it didn’t). It would later be revealed Nunes received his “evidence” from the Trump White House itself. Since the election, Nunes has proven to be Trump’s most loyal subordinate… the Wormtongue of Congress.

Two Weeks Notice

How bad have the last two weeks been for the Trump administration? Even if zero evidence of collusion is found between Donald Trump and Russia regarding the 2016 election, he could still find himself between a rock and a hard place. Or as one senior official told The Daily Beast: “I don’t see how Trump isn’t completely fucked.”

The Ugly Truth

I first saw the news on social media of James Comey’s termination as FBI Director on Tuesday afternoon. I thought it was a joke, much like Comey himself did when he learned of the end of his tenure… on television.

Trump’s latest action may be his most devastating yet. The 45th President has undermined the fourth estate, attacked the judicial branch and is now destroying the integrity of the very law enforcement agency investigating him.

The only thing more preposterous than Comey’s firing is the White House’s reasoning behind it.
