Reince Priebus, Donald Trump’s former chief of staff and general punching bag, has lawyered up in anticipation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s focus on:
Trump’s decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey, as well as the White House’s initial response to the revelation that Trump’s son, son-in-law and campaign chairman met with Kremlin-linked figures during the presidential election.
Recall that Priebus was intimately involved in those decisions, and also bear in mind that:
Mr. Trump’s allies are particularly concerned about Mr. Mueller’s interest in talking to Mr. Priebus, a former chairman of the Republican National Committee who worked closely with Mr. Trump during the presidential campaign. Mr. Trump’s confidants at the White House say Mr. Trump was never fully convinced that Mr. Priebus would be loyal to him.
Here’s hoping the concerns of Trump’s allies are warranted.
