Indictments do strange things inside a White House.
They twist the minds of an already neurotic nest of frenemies – turning suspicions into paranoia – press leaks into prosecutorial intelligence and financial concerns into colossal legal bills.
Normal life ceases (if it ever existed) for everyone from the president down as the indictments grow in number – the grand juries call ever more witnesses and impeachment looms ever closer.
Welcome to the first year of the Trump presidency – in which our protagonists have already proved themselves wholly incompetent in a succession of crises.
There may be Black Sea ferries that leak as much the Trump White House but they still run a tighter ship than this gang.
Lest we forget this is a president who wanted Anthony ‘the Mooch’ Scaramucci to run his clean-up operation.
So who cleans up now that the Trump campaign is the subject of so many investigations?
