Alone in the White House in recent days, President Trump  frustrated and
defiant  has been spoiling for a fight, according to his confidants and
associates.

.

Glued even more than usual to the cable news shows that blare from the
televisions in his private living quarters, or from the 60-inch flat
screen he had installed in his cramped study off the Oval Office, he has
fumed about fake news. Trump has seethed as his agenda has stalled in
Congress and the courts. He has chafed against the pleas for caution from
his lawyers and political advisers, tweeting whatever he wants, whenever
he wants.

.

And on Thursday, the president will come screen-to-screen with the FBI
director he fired, James B. Comey, thoughts of whom have consumed, haunted
and antagonized Trump since Comey launched an expanding Russia
investigation that the president slammed as a witch hunt.

.

Comeys testimony is a political Super Bowl  with television networks
interrupting regular programming to air it, and some Washington offices
and bars making plans for special viewings.

.

Trump is keen to be a participant rather than just another viewer, two
senior White House officials said, including the possibility of taking to
Twitter to offer acerbic commentary during the hearing.

.

I wish him luck, the president told reporters on Tuesday.

.

Hes infuriated at a deep-gut, personal level that the elite media has
tolerated [the Russia story] and praised Comey, former House speaker Newt
Gingrich said. Hes not going to let some guy like that smear him without
punching him as hard as he can.

.

This account of Trumps mind-set and the preparations of his team in the
run-up to Comeys testimony is based on interviews with 20 White House
officials, Trump friends and other well-connected Republicans, many of
whom spoke only on the condition of anonymity to offer candid
perspectives.

.

The presidents lawyers and aides have been urging him to resist engaging,
and they hope to keep him busy Thursday with other events meant to compete
for his  and the news medias  attention.
