President Trump hasn’t given any interviews or held any public events in almost a week. But he is scheduled to sit down with NBC’s Lester Holt on Thursday afternoon.

With Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey sending shock waves across Washington, NBC has lucked into the most consequential interview of Trump’s presidency.

When the interview booking was announced on Monday, Holt and his colleagues had no idea that Comey’s ouster was imminent. 

 The main news peg for the interview was thought to be last week’s health care vote in the House.

But now, with Comey’s firing garnering wall-to-wall coverage, the stakes are higher.

Thursday’s sit-down could be the biggest interview of Trump’s young presidency and the biggest interview of Holt’s career.
