“High officers are attempting to avoid the West Wing proper now,” Jonathan Swan reports. Trump is “lashing out, and everyone seems to be within the blast zone.” Mike Pence’s plan to leave the country instantly after he oversees Congress certifying Biden’s win makes a ton of sense on this context—Trump will see Pence following the regulation as a private betrayal.

It’s not simply McConnell and Pence, although.
