" Blame the transition if you like, but Trump was the one who would not tolerate previous dissenters, the one who selected the grab bag of characters who’ve come and gone and the one who made clear that financial ethics are unimportant.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions misrepresented his Russia connections to Congress and was involved in firing James B. Comey under false pretenses. Hope Hicks was caught up in the drafting of a false explanation for the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with Kremlin-connected figures. "
