#UnbelievableTurmoil | #WhatTheyVotedFor
The Trump administration is coming apart, quite frankly, faster than anyone seems able to figure. Via the New York Times:
• “F.B.I. Interviewed Flynn in Trump’s First Days in Office, Officials Say”
F.B.I. agents interviewed Michael T. Flynn when he was national security adviser in the first days of the Trump administration about his conversations with the Russian ambassador, current and former officials said on Tuesday.
The interview raises the stakes of what so far has been a political scandal that cost Mr. Flynn his job. If he was not entirely honest with the F.B.I., it could expose Mr. Flynn to a felony charge. President Trump asked for Mr. Flynn’s resignation on Monday night.
• “‘Unbelievable Turmoil’: Trump’s First Month Leaves Washington Reeling”
Gen. Tony Thomas, head of the military’s Special Operations Command, expressed concern about upheaval inside the White House. “Our government continues to be in unbelievable turmoil. I hope they sort it out soon because we’re a nation at war,” he said at a military conference on Tuesday.
Asked about his comments later, General Thomas said in a brief interview, “As a commander, I’m concerned our government be as stable as possible.”
• “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence”
Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Donald J. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election, according to four current and former American officials.
