On a normal day in DC (remember those?), one of these three stories would have topped the political news. First, the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee unilaterally ended their Russia probe and shared findings rejected by their Democratic colleagues, and the entire US intelligence community. Second, President Trump’s “longtime personal aide John McEntee was fired because he is currently under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for serious financial crimes … Minutes after news of his departure broke, the Trump campaign announced McEntee would be joining the reelection effort.” And Third, Trump made his first presidential visit to California where he inspected prototypes for his wall.
