The walls appear to be closing in on Donald Trump. This evening, Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who was leading an investigation into Trump’s connections to Russia.
Trump’s arrogance — his utter disregard for truth and decency — is astounding. News reports indicate he’s surprised at the backlash. Apparently he assumed he would fire Comey, and the public would shrug and say, “Oh well, I’m sure he had good reason.” My 5-year-old does a better job of exculpating himself.
And now, just since I started writing this, grand jury subpoenas have been issued in the FBI’s investigation of Russia. It’s unraveling by the minute.
Somebody make some popcorn. This is getting interesting.
