Republicans are Worried They'll Blow It

Politico: "Republicans are worried one thing could screw up the political gift of three Obama administration controversies at once: fellow Republicans. Top GOP leaders are privately warning members to put a sock in it when it comes to silly calls for impeachment or over-the-top comparisons to Watergate. They want members to focus on months of fact-finding investigations - not rhetorical fury."

One Senate GOP leadership aide said the coming investigation "has the capacity to be debilitating" for the administration: "It will take months, and it will ebb and flow in terms of its national attention. But the ebbs will be white hot."
