Tuesday has already proven to be a complete tornado of political news. Former Apprentice nemesis-turned-White House communications official Omarosa Manigault allegedly threatened a reporter, Donald Trump conducted sensitive national security work at his crowded golf club over the weekend, and probably the biggest news of today is that former national security advisor Michael Flynn stepped down just three weeks into his job with the new administration—setting a new record.

Flynn's resignation has already raised a lot of questions regarding the administration's ties to Russia, what exactly the president knew, who's going to replace Flynn, if the scandal had any bearing on acting attorney general Sally Yates's firing, and who else on Team Trump might be susceptible to Russian blackmail. 

After taking only two softball questions at his joint press conference with Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau on Monday, reporters will likely have a lot of questions for press secretary Sean Spicer Tuesday. He's set to address the media at 1 PM in the White House Briefing Room.
