Washington (CNN)House Speaker Paul Ryan sought Thursday to explain President Donald Trump’s asking then-FBI Director James Comey to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, saying he was new at the job and did not understand protocols.

It appears that Twitler’s lawyer has convinced him to not tweet during the Comey testimony and allow him to be his mouthpiece. Lawyering up or lawyering down?
From JOE PATRICE at The Atlantic:
Donald Trump’s personal attorney Marc Kasowitz is in a curious position.
Hiring a New York civil litigator for the highest of high-profile government investigations would seem, to most people, completely insane. Equally insane would be sending a lawyer out to deliver a ridiculous, wooden statement at the National Press Club that only puts a further spotlight on their client’s troubles.

From mildly nauseous James Comey‘s statement (read the statement in its entirety at POLITICO):
January 27 Dinner
The President and I had dinner on Friday, January 27 at 6:30 pm in the Green Room at the White House. He had called me at lunchtime that day and invited me to dinner that night, saying he was going to invite my whole family, but decided to have just me this time, with the whole family coming the next time. It was unclear from the conversation who else would be at the dinner, although I assumed there would be others.
It turned out to be just the two of us, seated at a small oval table in the center of the Green Room. Two Navy stewards waited on us, only entering the room to serve food and drinks.

From the New York DAILY NEWS:
A close ally of President Trump and the husband of one of his top advisers took to Twitter to bash the President’s Twitter habits on Monday, warning that Trump was undercutting his own legal standing in the court fight for his travel ban in order for short-term emotional gratification.
George Conway, Kellyanne Conway’s husband who recently took his name out of the running for a top Department of Justice job, tweeted Monday morning that Trump was hurting himself.

From The Washington Post (Editorial Board):
IVANKA TRUMP’S conflicts of interest as a White House adviser already included the dependence of her clothing brand on Chinese manufacturers even as she and her husband participate in White House meetings with senior Chinese officials. Now a new and more troubling connection has come up: Authorities have moved to silence labor activists who were documenting poor working conditions at the factories that make Ivanka Trump shoes.
