Week 18 of The Presidential Apprentice closes with Trump jetting off to the Middle East and Europe, carrying the contagion of infantilism, inattention, low energy and dysfunction with him. (Jared & Ivanka are along for the ride, allegedly with special dispensation.)

We’re coming to grips with the Comey firing, the appointment of a special counsel, and what it all means. But first, Trump & team are spending their precious time plotting revenge: by accusing Obama of being the real leaker of intel to Russia! Got it? Good. Now, here’s what you need to read, in rough order of complexity, in order to discuss the scope of the investigation(s).

In related news, Jason Chaffetz is putting away his subpoena crayons, and Devin Nunes still has his hands in the cookie jar.

Speaking of half-assing it in the House, they might end up having to vote on Trumpcare all over again, rendering statements by the White House and Ryan’s office inoperative.

Lots of speculation about why Trump’s so loyal to Flynn, lately. But this is the topper! I hope!

One last entry for weekend reading: Time’s “Inside Russia’s Social Media War on America.”
