Trump will reportedly live-tweet his reactions to Comey's testimony

President Trump has live-tweeted everything from the Oscars to the vice presidential debate, so naturally he will share his thoughts with his followers during the biggest show of the week: the Senate hearing of former FBI Director James Comey.

White House officials told The Washington Post's Robert Costa "that President Trump does not plan to put down Twitter on Thursday. [He] may live tweet if he feels the need to respond." (Spoiler alert: He almost certainly will).

Costa added to MSNBC that administration officials' view is that "the president himself wants to be the messenger, his own warrior, his own lawyer, his own spokesman ... He himself wants to be the one driving the process."

As part of the ongoing investigation into the Trump camp's ties to Russia, Comey will be questioned on reports that Trump tried to talk him out of investigating ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Trump has additionally threatened Comey with "tapes" of their conversations, and reportedly told Russian officials he considers Comey to be a "nut job."
