What a Time to Be a Political Journalist

It must be a gold mine for political journalists in Washington these days, with new twists, turns, and scandals every day.

One day a hastily written health care bill is steamrolled into the House of Representatives. On the next day the US President fires the FBI director in the midst of an investigation within the government. Then, the US President openly mentions the possibility of recordings between him and the ex-FBI director over sensitive issues. Then a presidential photo-op with Henry Kissinger. Then this whole Russian thing and now President Trump has apparently spilled secrets to the Russians.

2017: a gold mine for some and a mine field for others.
