Latest Scoops

McCabe firing is becoming grist in the Wisconsin Senate race after @MarkPocan's job offer.
CONAWAY says House Intel Committee did NOT conclude there was no collusion between Trump campaign and Russia. "What we said is that we found no evidence of it. That's a different statement."

He notes they didn't talk to several central witnesses.
GOWDY also emphasizes that House Intel Committee's Russia report is *NOT* conclusive about collusion -- only that they didn't get evidence of collusion from witnesses they talked to -- and didn't talk to Flynn, Manafort, Papadopoulos, etc.

"You don’t know what you don’t know."
WOW. Trey GOWDY addresses Trump's lawyer this AM:

"if you have an innocent client Mr. Dowd, act like it.”
For clues on how Republicans are likely to react to @realDonaldTrump's weekend attacks on Mueller:

-10/31: Senate Republicans in no rush to protect Mueller: https://t.co/12gttL2wg1

-1/26: Republicans shrug off reports Trump wanted to fire Mueller: https://t.co/q6lsOkV0gW
This is the *first* time @realDonaldTrump has used Mueller’s name in a tweet.
One set of voices we haven’t heard from on the McCabe firing: Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee, including Nunes, Gowdy, Conaway or Rooney.
It’s a stunt but Rep. Pocan (D-Wisc.) has offered a job to McCabe handling election security:
House Judiciary Chairman @RepGoodlatte highest ranking member of House GOP to back Sessions’ decision to fire McCabe.
If he’s truly saying this on behalf of Trump, can it be construed as an order?
