He stood at the podium and spoke. Flags hung behind him. A smirk was on his face.
He accepted full responsibility. He admitted mistakes were made. He promised to look into things. But he said he stood by his decisions, and he pointed out that, after all, United States Attorneys serve only at the pleasure of the President.
Only at the pleasure of the President. Nothing to see here. Move along.
But that was before the emails, before the documents, before the lies were exposed, before White House minds suddenly turned hazy about just who knew what when.
And somehow I think the pleasure of the President is not as high this weekend as he expected it to be. That's a shame.
