Inside the West Wing, a growing number of aides blamed Trump’s second White House chief of staff, John F. Kelly, for the bungled handling of allegations against Porter. Trump in recent days has begun musing about possible replacements, according to people with knowledge of the conversations.

But Kelly does not enjoy the confidence of an increasing number of his subordinates, some of whom said they believe that the retired four-star Marine Corps general has misled them.

Kelly is “a big fat liar,” said one White House official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share a candid opinion. “To put it in terms the general would understand, his handling of the Porter scandal amounts to dereliction of duty.”

3. I hope the FBI Director smiled and laughed as he put the truth out there.

Don't fuck the FBI. When they get the chance, they will get you back. No one deserves it more than 45 and his minions.

4. that senior white house staffer was likely cohn himself....

And he is gunning for the cos slot.

It would also explain his sudden announcement that he paid hush money out of his own pocket. Nothing gets you a job with trump faster than committing perjury for him.

5. What did they think would happen?

I figure they knew that they would once again get caught in a lie, but have discovered that it doesn't matter.
