In the middle of the White House’s attempt to explain that no one should take Donald Trump’s tweets seriously, White House sources told Robert Costa that President Trump may live tweet during former FBI Director James Comey’s Thursday Senate testimony if he feels the need to respond.
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.

Thursday, Comey is set to testify about the Trump Russia investigation and possibly the memos he kept about his meetings with Trump, during which Trump reportedly asked him to kill the investigation into fired NSA Director Mike Flynn.
Trump also scheduled a speech to religious conservatives for Thursday at 12:30 PM ET which is his signature ratings war move when he’s angry about another event because to Trump this is all about TV and ratings.
Your President might live tweet his responses to Comey’s testimony. The man who has been told not to tweet about Russia or Comey. The man under FBI investigation for his contacts with Russia as Russia waged a cyberattack on the U.S.’s 2016 election.
