How to Make the Russia Coverage Worse

by Rich Lowry

As I noted yesterday, there is nothing about the Comey firing that it going to serve Trump’s ends if he is trying to bury the Russia investigation. News reports suggest he was upset about the media coverage of Comey and Russia. Well, if he hated it as of a few days ago, he must absolutely loathe it now. Word is that he’s upset with his communications staff. But how were they supposed to better handle this story, when they got extremely short notice of the coming ouster and were fed (assuming they weren’t complicit in it) a cover story about this all being driven by Rosenstein and his memo that appears to have been misleading? As often is the case with Trump, he’s not being ill-served by his underlings so much as by himself.
