What’s the end game here?
“What if we had just dismissed somebody because a political opponent of the president had made an utterance?”
“To state the obvious, you don’t want your national security adviser compromised with the Russians.”
“This is the swamp. This is what needs to be drained.”
I can’t even keep up anymore
“Overall, the compromise resembles more of an Obama administration-era budget than a Trump one.”
A budget deal before the deadline?
“You don’t catch everything” during vetting?
“The Pentagon’s warning to Gen. Flynn was bold, italicized and could not have been clearer.”
“the initial letter submitted by the State Department was too soft…”
“I’m not happy to have to pass this on. I’m very, very troubled to have to pass this on.”
“Steve is a good guy, but I told them to straighten it out or I will.”
Now, they live together too.
“The big fight is between nationalists and the West Wing Democrats.”
“This was done because the White House wanted it to be done…”
“…the National Security Council offices of the Eisenhower building.”
“They’d vote no against the Ten Commandments if it came up for a vote.”
“Clearly you’re not ready.”
“It’s sheer incompetence. There’s a lack of management, and a lack of strategy.”
“Without nefarious motive.”
“The downfall does not come from the crime, it comes from the cover-up…”
“This White House does not seem to respect the idea of accountability.”
Winners and losers.
