Logical Reasonings

A. Your boss just unexpectedly fired the FBI director who, incidentally, was leading an investigation into ties between an authoritarian regime and your boss’s election. It’s your job to inform the press. You wanted to do it by email, but that didn’t work. Plus, everything’s happening so fast, and you’re still not 100 on all the details. What do you do? If you’re Sean Spicer, you hide behind a bush, apparently. Washington Post

B. At least Spicer wasn’t in Betsy DeVos’s shoes though. She was viciously booed when giving a commencement speech at Bethune-Cookman University. Or maybe they were saying “Boo-etsy”? Washington Post

C. Back to this mess in Washington. What is Trump doing after dismissing FBI director Comey? Hiring a law firm to write a strongly worded letter stating he has no business ties with Russia. NBC News

D. And the NY Times reports that in the days before he was fired, Comey asked the Justice Department for a significant increase in resources for the investigation into Russia’s interference with the election. Although it’s worth noting that the Justice Department denies this. NY Times

E. Meanwhile, the White House is doubling down on its stated reason for the firing Comey: for mishandling the revelation about the additional Clinton emails way back in October of last year. CNN
