Let’s do this rip-the-band-aid-off style:

— As the number of allies he loses inside the White House increases, Trump continues to stay in contact with hangers-on, like Rob Porter, the guy with a history of domestic abuse allegations and left in shame over them. Trump potentially wants to bring him back and believes that John Kelly botched his resignation.

— Last night’s 60 Minutes with Stormy Daniels was the highest rated episode of the show in 10 years, since Michelle and Barack Obama appeared after winning the election. One of those viewers was definitely Donald Trump:

Also, since the interview aired, Stormy Daniels’ lawyer says that they have gotten a few leads on who the goon that threatened Stormy Daniels might have been. Daniels’ attorney has also filed a defamation lawsuit against Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, for his previous denials of the affair.

— Two more attorneys, Dan Webb and Tom Buchanan, have declined to join the Trump legal team. At this point, Trump literally has more attorneys defending him against Stormy Daniels than he does against the Mueller probe.

The former solicitor general, who declined to join Trump’s legal team last week, also spoke out against the chaos in the administration.

— Actual White House lawyers are investigating Jared Kushner for yet more loans totaling $500 million that were given to him after he met with executives from Citigroup and Apollo Global Management in the White House. Those are potentially criminal violations, if not unethical. How many of these investigations against Jared Kushner are ongoing now?
