The reporting indicates that Trump was driven to do this out of grievance-laden rage at Comey for failing to make the Russia probe disappear (Comey isn’t supposed to do that at Trump’s behest, and firing him isn’t going to do it either).

Trump & Tories — Souls of Greed, Hypocrisy and deep-seated Meanness Interesting article about Britain, English folk music and tradition, and in a way, about us.
