Senator Bob Corker (the Republican chairman of the Senate's Committee on Foreign Relations) has decided to resign at the end of his current term. Perhaps this has given him the sense of freedom other Republicans can only aspire to - in the past week or so, Corker has become one of Trump's harshest critics, and claims to speak for many Congresspeople who are repeatedly frustrated by the President's actions.
