Trump's FISA Tweet Shows Why the 25th Amendment Is Unnecessary

GETTY    
   NO WORRIES Theresa May defends Donald Trump

After yet another round of tweets by Donald Trump, #Sarah Huckabee Sanders was forced to explain his statements, as well as his current physical health.

Sources close to the West Wing told CNN that the Trump administration is finding it hard to fill vacancies as the Russian Federation probe focuses on close Trump aides and the president's popularity plummets in the polls.

Reporting on the White House's response to a Washington Post report that President Donald Trump referred to some immigrants being from "shithole countries" in an Oval Office meeting Thursday, Acosta had trouble using the word reported. But it would require investigators to get probable cause warrants to view the actual content in cases unrelated to national security.

House Speaker Paul Ryan took a phone call from the President about his tweet and the surveillance issue, a source familiar with their conversation said, though they didn't discuss Trump's follow-up message about unmasking.

Trump's apparent confusion-and the hour-long tempest that followed-ultimately did little to influence House legislators, who voted to renew FISA 256 to 164. He suggested that a vote on the bill should be delayed, but it went forward.

Fears of an exodus tally with the accounts of low morale and the administration's struggle to fill White House positions in Michael Wolff's tell-all book about Trump's first year, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

At 7:33 am ET, Trump tweeted that the "controversial FISA ACT" may have been used to "badly surveil and abuse the Trump Campaign by the previous administration", an odd missive that seemed to ignore the "foreign" part of FISA.

Last year, Trump accused the Obama administration of wiretapping Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign. He has offered no proof for such claims. The president, she said, has been following the topic and "wanted to put something out".

He rolled in a 15-foot birdie putt at the par-three second and drained an eight-footer at the par-three eighth. I know exactly where I wanted it to come down and it did, so I knew it was going to be pretty good.

"The president said", Jim Acosta reported on "The Situation Room" on Thursday, "'Why are we having all of these people from, ' - and I apologize for using this word here, but this is a quote from the president - 'why are we having all these people from sh*thole countries come here?'" "Every court to look at 702 and the way it's been used, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation queries, have found it fully consistent with the Fourth Amendment".
