“The president has made it clear what his position is.”
“I’ve asked, others have asked, to make sure the tapes are preserved, if they exist.”

A budget deal before the deadline?
“You don’t catch everything” during vetting?
“The Pentagon’s warning to Gen. Flynn was bold, italicized and could not have been clearer.”
“the initial letter submitted by the State Department was too soft…”
“I’m not happy to have to pass this on. I’m very, very troubled to have to pass this on.”
“Steve is a good guy, but I told them to straighten it out or I will.”
Now, they live together too.
“The big fight is between nationalists and the West Wing Democrats.”
