In a Sunday appearance on ABC’s “This Week” with host George Stephanopoulos, the network’s chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl contended that, for all of the reports of the preparation of a West Wing war room for rapid response to the Russia investigations, “none of that has been put in place whatsoever.”
“So there isn’t much of a structure in place to have rapid response to Comey,” Karl said, referring to former FBI Director James Comey’s upcoming testimony on June 8 regarding his interactions with President Trump as they relate to the Russia investigations.
“I think what you’re going to see, though,” Karl continued, “is an effort to deflect. You’re seeing that in the president’s response to the London terror attacks. They’re going to talk about ‘infrastructure week’ this week–about reviving his plan for an infrastructure bill–and there is some discussion among the president’s aides about possibly taking a trip to London at the end of the week to show solidarity with the people of London against terrorism.”
Former FBI head, James Comey testifies on Thursday.
