Retweeted by Ashley ParkerFor SUCH a freewheeling speech, Trump has been oddly on message — at least in that he's not devolved down a Russia probe rabbit hole."We're not even campaigning and look at this crowd," President Trump says at a campaign rally organized by his campaign staff.
Retweeted by Ashley ParkerObvious, but remains striking at how much more comfortable Trump is in front of a rally crowd than in the White House

Retweeted by Ashley ParkerThe press secretary has never asked the President if Russia interfered in the election, which is quite a thing.

To be clear: That was an Instagram live video misfire. And the man talking about pot was my dad. #ParkerFamilyFathersDay—> @wpjenna on the two years since that historic golden escalator where this whole journey started.

Wonderful @TexasTribAbby (and star shortstop) on what the Congressional baseball (softball) game means to the city. vignettes by @AshleyRParker paint a vivid picture of the dynamic between Trump and Pence.
Retweeted by Ashley ParkerCc: @SenSchumer; @mattwhouse tells VP pooler @PhilipRucker that his decision to hire outside legal counsel is "very routine, very routine." has almost become a burlesque parody of a deferential VP—a servant at the ready, eager to please his master.… "Alexa, buy me something from Whole Foods" Alexa: "Buying Whole Foods" Bezos: Shit

Staff Watch: VP's team is considering bringing in another top aide, to help w strategy and look out for Pence… loyal, Pence had to be urged by his staff to voice his frustrations with Flynn to the president.… President Pence: Serenely confident or willfully oblivious?

Today's column is a @pkcapitol standout. It is a must-read. It is why @washingtonpost is blessed to have him.
Retweeted by Ashley ParkerWhen Trump fired Comey, he was not under investigation. Now he is. can't overstate how shaken and emotional lawmakers are today. Every one I've interviewed has broken into tears discussing the shooting.
Retweeted by Ashley Parker🚨 🚨🚨WaPo Scoop: Special counsel Mueller is investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice. thing I love most about Venmo is how it never feels like I'm paying anyone in real money, but rather adorable emojis...Read this great, old @TimAlberta piece to learn about Steve Scalise (he carries a fava bean in his pocket for luck).

Heinrich has proven himself a surprisingly fun -- and tough -- questioner over the past two weeks.AG Sessions channels righteous indignity v well. And makes it clear he doesn't appreciate the hits his reputation has taken, re Russia.A very honest assessment from Sessions on the Trump campaign foreign policy committee: "We never functioned as a coherent team"
