Hill GOPers Trot Out Tortured Defenses Of Trump As Pressure Builds

Republicans on Capitol Hill are still reeling from the waves of scandals that have hit Washington in quick succession over the last few days: President Donald Trumpís sudden firing of FBI Director James Comey, the admission he did so to in order put the kibosh on the bureauís investigation of his own campaign, reports that Trump pressured Comey in a private meeting to drop that investigation, and news that Trump revealed highly classified Israeli intelligence to the Russians.

Any one of those revelations on its own could drive a wedge between a President and his own party in Congress. In combination, they threaten to derail Trumpís presidency entirely.
