Anybody seen Tom Cotton? UPDATE

Posted By on Wed, May 10, 2017 at 9:08 AM


You can get trampled getting between Sen. Tom Cotton and a national TV camera (local reporters aren't so avidly sought, other than the politically compliant type). But since the Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, the man leading the investigation of Russian involvement with the Trump campaign, Cotton has been in social media silence.

When last spouting off, Cotton was heard Tuesday at a Senate hearing defending Trump and more or less suggesting any Russian hacking could be blamed on Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

UPDATE: Tom Cotton fired up his Twitter account this morning.

* One invited people to tune into a banking subcommittee hearing.

* Another objected to the World Health Organization's exclusion of Taiwan from a meeting.

Somebody get him a copy of that NY Times article on Comey getting fired after asking for money to expand the Russian probe.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
