Trump begins to lose sway
In the aftermath of President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey, two things have happened when it comes to Trump’s standing with his own party. One, congressional Republicans haven’t abandoned Trump on Comey (yes, some have criticized the timing, but there isn’t a growing GOP demand for a special counsel). Two, enough of them are beginning to buck their president on non-Comey items. That includes Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Ben Sasse (R-NE) saying they’re opposed to Trump’s pick to be U.S. trade representative, and three Republicans who worked to defeat a GOP-backed resolution to repeal an Obama environmental regulation.
