Life was hell in the White House.
The aides and advisers who endured the last major independent investigation at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue say President Donald Trump and his team are not prepared for how miserable their lives are about to become, NBC News reported.
The investigation into former President Bill Clinton wrought havoc on the lives of the White House staff, brought down a sitting governor, and led to the impeachment of a president for only the second time in American history.
Former FBI Director Robert Mueller's is set with the task of looking into Russian meddling in the election and possible ties of the Trump campaign to Moscow. It begins with the start of Trump's presidency, when he has few accomplishments or good will to fall back on, and when the White House is already riven with internal divisions and leaks.

Several people killed in Monday's Manchester concert bombing have been identified so far by authorities, schools or their families. They range in age from 8 years old to a Polish couple who had come to pick up their daughters.
Twenty-two people died in the explosion outside an Ariana Grande concert in the large British city, while 119 people were wounded in the city's worst attack, authorities said.
Georgina Callander, 18, was the first victim to be identified, as her former Manchester-area school, Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy, identified her.

Medical officials said 12 children under the age of 16 were among those injured in the suicide bombing attack at a pop concert in England's second-largest city.

They claimed Clinton lied when she allegedly told them it was a YouTube video that prompted the consulate attack.

Following a necropsy, a team of scientists determined that the adult female whale sustained broken ribs, a fractured spine and trauma to her skull, according to the Marine Mammal Center. Those wounds are "indicative of significant blunt force trauma that is consistent with ship strikes."

The Washington Post reports that Russia's ambassador to the U.S. has told his superiors that he and Jared Kushner discussed setting up a secret communications channel between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin in December.
The Post report cites anonymous U.S. officials who were briefed on intelligence reports on intercepted Russian communications.
The newspaper says Ambassador Sergei Kislyak told his superiors that Kushner proposed using Russian diplomatic facilities for their discussions, apparently to make them more difficult to monitor. The Post says Kislyak was reportedly "taken aback" by the suggestion.
