Likely a large portion.

It's all tribal now.

I'd think that Republicans have an interest in exploiting Trump's inexperience, but long-term would prefer to have a conventional politician such as Pence in the seat. He is fully on board with all their plans, yes won't be such an epic embarrassment and incalculable risk.

Another day another Trump scandal.

Trump asked Comey to shut down Flynn investigation. Clear obstruction of justice!
Trump just can't continue, he's going to jail.

David Brooks has a fitting quote about comparing current events to watergate: the difference is that during Watergate Congress actually cared whether laws were broken.

because fuck these people.

There is a growing sense that Mr. Trump seems unwilling or unable to do the things necessary to keep himself out of trouble, and that the presidency has done little to tame a shoot-from-the-hip-into-his-own-foot style that characterized his campaign.

There is a fear among some of Mr. Trump’s senior advisers about leaving him alone in meetings with foreign leaders out of concern he might speak out of turn. General McMaster, in particular, has tried to insert caveats or gentle corrections into conversations when he believes the president is straying off topic or onto boggy diplomatic ground.

This has, at times, chafed the president, according to two officials with knowledge of the situation. Mr. Trump, who still openly laments having to dismiss his first national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, has groused that General McMaster talks too much in meetings, and the president has referred to him as “a pain,” according to one of the officials.

In private, three administration officials conceded that they could not publicly articulate their most compelling — and honest — defense of the president: that Mr. Trump, a hasty and indifferent reader of printed briefing materials, simply did not possess the interest or knowledge of the granular details of intelligence gathering to leak specific sources and methods of intelligence gathering that would do harm to United States allies.

President Trump asked the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, to shut down the investigation into Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn.
“I hope you can let this go,” the president told Mr. Comey. The White House denied the account in the memo.
Obstruct much?

Trumps finished. This is just the start. The FBI and IC are out to finish him with all these leaks. He'll go to jail.

Lets not get too far ahead of ourselves.

Nothing has stuck against him, and you have a congress that doesn't care.

if there's evidence that can back up this memo... logs of the meeting, people who were at the meeting before comey who can verify that trump asked to speak to him alone, comey witnesses who comey told about the meeting after returning from it, etc. etc. then they could present a pretty good obstruction of justice case, which would have to be a game changer for even the republicans.
