The New York Times dropped the MOAB of stories on the Trump White House, with a memo claiming Trump asked Comey to drop the investigation on Michael Flynn’s connections to Russia. This capped off a bad day that saw everything from insulting Israel to a fence jumper.

“I hope you can let this go,” the president told Mr. Comey, according to the memo.
