With a West Wing under legal siege, the mood in most of the building — especially on the topic of Russia — is quieter than you might think.

The big picture: Cable news anchors sometimes ask me what the mood is like inside the White House during these mad Mueller news cycles. Depends which part of the building you’re talking about. Trump might be raging at the TV in the dining room adjoining the Oval Office. But elsewhere in the West Wing, it’s quiet and unremarkable, aides tell me.
