Susan Page: The Russia Investigation Is the Defining Fact of the Trump White House

‘The main thing this trump white House is concerned with is protecting the president’


PAGE: "I think they are raising that the Russia investigation is the defining fact of the Trump white House because it involves and consumes the President and his legal team and it is a big concern of his chief of staff. And a scandal of any sort, the Iran Contra scandal, the Monica Lewinsky scandal, has a big effect on the White House. But we saw with the Clinton White House they made a big effort to compartmentalize the scandal from other operations of the government. There has been no such consistent effort on the part of the Trump White House. The main thing this Trump White House is concerned with is protecting the President and what’s happening with this Russia investigation."
