Republicans may be reaching their breaking point with Trump

Politico/John Bresnahan & Rachael Bade/05-16-17

…Republicans are privately beginning to worry that they may one day have to sit in judgment of Trump, or that more damaging information from Comey could force the president to step down.

…More Republicans have openly discussed the possibility of a select committee or the appointment of a special prosecutor to look into the Trump-Russia connection. It’s still a minority of GOP lawmakers, but Republican leaders are watching closely.

…And if Republicans are paralyzed and can’t pass anything despite control of the White House and Congress, how can they justify their majorities when they go before voters next year?

PG View: Whether the accusations are true or not, they provide a monumental headwind to anything the President was hoping to accomplish.
