1. This is what happens when you fill a swamp with even more muck.

It's bound to overflow at some point.

3. Carter Page, Roger Stone, Manafort and FLynn.

The F.B.I. has closely examined at least three other people close to Mr. Trump, although it is unclear if their calls were intercepted. They are Carter Page, a businessman and former foreign policy adviser to the campaign; Roger Stone, a longtime Republican operative; and Mr. Flynn.

5. Remember that the T word had the tape recorder off when he spoke with Putin?

Obviously, he thought he was making sure that his chat with Vlad the shirtless remained completely off the record. Except...the NSA has that call from their intercepts of top Russian leaders. Think about the leverage the IC has to pry Little Orange Man out of his in his newly draperied oval office.

The worm slowly begins to turn.
