March 22, 2017… Day #62
In case anyone is keeping track at home, today was actually 2 weeks long.
Also, Sean Spicer still hasn’t learned that he shouldn’t ask rhetorical questions:
The day was silo-ed into three main things, all of which were HUGE all by themselves. I’ve made you a visual aid.
I got really disheartened in the interlude between #4 and #5, also known as my commute home with menstrual cramps. I summoned courage by remembering the words of Congresswoman Maxine Waters. Weeks ago she flatly told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that 1) She knows that Trump is impeachable, 2) She does not trust the Republicans in the House to do anything about it, and 3) We can trust John McCain and Lindsay Graham in the Senate because they are patriots.
I’m not going to get into the sources, or when it arrived, but I wanted to brief the Speaker, which is what I did this morning, and obviously I briefed, I put in calls to the directors, I’ve spoken to the CIA Director and the NSA Director, and I’m waiting to talk to Director Comey, and I’m going to head to the White House after the votes.
—Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence committee today.
Adam Schiff, ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, is not even on his list of people to talk to — and found about this at the same time the rest of us did.
More to follow on that, but first I want to give this NYT story some attention:
They should call that an act of terror.
There was also a terrorist attack in London today, near the parliament building.
AFTER THE JUMP: Questions reporters asked today to SEAN SPICER… DEVIN NUNES… and ADAM SCHIFF !!!! Lots of good questions in here about the healthcare bill too.
