President Trump is seething.

Okay, I don't know that for sure. After all, Trump's lawyer Jay Sekulow said on CNN Monday morning that when it comes to the indictments of former Trump staffers handed down by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and the fact that another former staffer accepted a plea deal to sing like a bird, nobody on the Trump team is worried in the slightest. "I'm not concerned about this at all, and no one else is either," Sekulow said, so maybe Trump is completely chill about the whole thing, secure in the knowledge that when the facts all come out, he'll be vindicated and everyone will see it was all just a hoax.
