Trump said in a statement.

The reasons given for the firing are preposterous. When was the last time Trump or his administration EVER gave the REAL REASON they've done anything?

Trump cites as the reason for the firing Comey's statements out of school about Clinton last summer -- then turns right around and praises Comey's (supposedly) telling him (3 times, facryinoutloud!) that Trump himself is not a target of the Russia investigation.

So, to sum up, to Trump's way of thinking: bad when you don't keep Clinton facts under wraps -- but OK to tell Trump investigation target details? The fool is talking out of both sides of his mouth. #-o

Comey was fired b/c he was was on that Russia probe like a pit bull, and for NO OTHER REASON. :x

Trump cd be crazy, Comey suggested after wiretap claim

Postby Marie » Thu May 11, 2017 5:11 pm

The NYTimes reports:
After President Trump accused his predecessor in March of wiretapping him, James B. Comey, then the F.B.I. director, was flabbergasted. The president, Mr. Comey told associates, was “outside the realm of normal,” even “crazy.”

Trump threatens Comey w/'tapes'

Postby Marie » Fri May 12, 2017 2:33 pm

Now, like the mob boss he aspires to be, Trump is threatening Comey with "tapes" of their dinner discussion if Comey talks about it.

Comey says go ahead, make my day.

But I say, better than that would be if the investigating committees subpoenaed the tapes and put them on the PA system where we cd all listen. I hope he made lots and lots b/c they will all be massively incriminating! =D>

Hey, maybe that's why Trump didn't want anyone else in the Oval Office when the Russians were there = they installed the recording system for him. :-k

Comey memo says Trump asked him to end Flynn investigation
By Michael S. Schmidt
The New York Times
5/16/2017

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP ASKED then-F.B.I. director James B. Comey to shut down the federal investigation into Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, in an Oval Office meeting in February, according to a memo Mr. Comey wrote shortly after the meeting.

“I hope you can let this go,” the president told Mr. Comey, according to the memo.

The memo was part of a paper trail Mr. Comey created documenting what he perceived as the president’s improper efforts to influence a continuing investigation.

An F.B.I. agent’s contemporaneous notes are widely held up in court as credible evidence of conversations.
