WaPo’s Robert Costa: Trump ‘May Live Tweet’ James Comey’s Testimony
Roberta Costa of The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that President Donald Trump might take to Twitter on Thursday in reaction to the planned congressional testimony of former FBI Director James Comey.
“The President is expected to be Tweeting on Thursday in response to Comey — not to stay quiet during the testimony — because he himself wants to be the one driving the process,” Costa said on MSNBC.
Anchor Hallie Jackson had noted her network’s “reporting that this so-called war room never took off — not happening,” with one source saying “it just doesn’t exist.”
The Post journalist cited anonymous “White House officials” he talked to that morning, and outlined that “their view is that the President himself wants to be the messenger — his own warrior; his own lawyer; his own spokesman. And so, there is not a war room.”
Costa Tweeted about his scoop after his appearance with Jackson:
I’m told by two WH sources that Pres. Trump does not plan to put down Twitter on Thursday. May live tweet if he feels the need to respond.

It should be pointed out that the President is scheduled to give a speech to the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference in Washington, D.C. on Thursday morning.
