GOP strategist warns Trump to ‘get good legal help now, because the storm is coming’

Trmp needs to lawyer up

Republican strategist Alex Castellanos on Sunday warned President Trump to "get good legal help now."

Castellanos said during a panel on ABC's "This Week" that it is hard to believe that special counsel Robert Mueller "is not going to dig up something in Trump’s complicated financial history to say 'Look, the president of the United States did this and it was wrong.' "

"And it’s hard to believe then that when Republicans lose the House in 2018, maybe by 40 or 50 seats, that House is not going to impeach him," he said.


New book alleges Kellyanne Conway is the 'number one leaker' in Trump White House

kellyanne Conway number one leaker
In a Sunday interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union," Ronald Kessler, the author of "The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game," claimed that the President's counselor and former campaign manager leaks more information to the press than any other individual working in the White House.
Kessler told Tapper that in at least one interview with Conway, she forgot that they were on-the-record as she ripped into her fellow colleagues. According to Kessler, Conway said some of the most "mean, cutting and honestly untrue" things about former chief of staff Reince Priebus, and also "dissed" Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the President's senior advisor and son-in-law.
"So if you wonder why there are so many leaks out of the White House, one reason is Kellyanne Conway is the number one leaker," Kessler said.
