Todd: ‘The Russia Investigation Has ‘Consumed’ Trump ‘on Every Level’

‘In talking to people very close and supportive of Dan Coats, he’s been concerned all along by the atmosphere of the relationship between his interactions with the White House’

EXCERPT:

TODD: "Well I think it's pretty clear. This -- the Russia investigation's consumed the president on every level. Look, the report about the Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats, it was more that just that he wanted him to go to Comey and say, lay off of Mike Flynn and the Russia investigation. And the fact is, it's my -- in talking to people very close and very supportive of Dan Coats, there -- he’s been concerned all along by the atmosphere of the relationship between his interactions with the White House. Now, he testifies today. You know, there’s two sort of two days of these hearings. Comey’s tomorrow, that’s the big one. But he testifies today and that’s going to be a big part of this conversation, as well. And he’s going to help add to this obvious nature where the president is just consumed."
