Trump Told Russians That
Firing ‘Nut Job’ Comey Eased
Pressure From Investigation

New York Times, by Matt Apuzzo*

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/19/2017 3:38:39 PM

WASHINGTON — President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office this month that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved “great pressure” on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting. “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.” The conversation, during a May 10 meeting — the day after he fired Mr. Comey

Comments:
Here we go again! The person who leaked this alleged information should be fired immediately. The investigation within their own White House should be expedited because it is totally outrageous and appalling. It is chilling and horrifying that he can´t even trust his own inner circle.

[*w/Maggie Haberman & Matthew Rosenberg]

"read to The New York Times by an American official"

What the heck does that even mean? It´s like they´re committing mass suicide credibility-wise, and taking their psycho followers with them.

John McCain will surely make a strong statement.

None of this matters anyway because there´s a Special Counselor on the job now, so back to work you slackers! I´m talking to you McVain, Amash and Grahamnesty!

The Media will have to decide if the problem with Trump is Hiding too much or not hiding enough.

Is the President not allowed to have opinions ?

I find him refreshing.

I see no real source in this story other than an unnamed official reading it to the Slimes and another unnamed official verifying it. The paper of record is skating on very thin ice and should try to report the news instead of making it. all this stuff is doing what the Democrats say the Russians are doing, undermining the peoples faith in our electoral system.

Funny but the air is being let out of this "bombshell" for the very reason that Comey has his mouthpiece out there saying things that CONFIRM what true weirdo
that FBI Director really was!!! Splat back on the anti-Trumpers again.

Why on earth is this news? James Comey was, at the time of the alleged remark, a private citizen and, a little indiscreet or not, President Trump had every right to say whatever he wanted about him to whomever he wanted.

If all of these silly leaked remarks are indeed true what is the motivation of the leakers? Where does the pettiness, the cowardice, the immaturity come from to do such a thing?

And, by the way, it appears that Mr. Comey is a ´nut job´.

Perhaps early on Trump went through a learning curve regarding how every utterance would be spun against him but by now, or the time of Comey´s dismissal he would have to be a blundering idiot to have said this. Blundering idiots don´t build skyscrapers or golf courses.

There are no snitches! There are no leakers!

A document that apparently wrote itself was read by somebody who says they were an American to the New York Times, who never saw the document, don´t know who read it and or who, if anybody, wrote it.

That is not a leak. That is not information. That is not news.

Frankly, I don´t give a damn what Mr. Trump "said" to the Russians. Mr. Trump will never weaken us militarily like Mr. Obama did.

It´s time the American people show these sleazoids who is in charge. We need to intimidate them at every turn, not turn the other cheek and justice ... what´s that?. As for the pansy Republicans in congress, you´re either with us or your with Fake news...your choice. I remember when President George W said that... it was one of his best moments as a president. It showed strength and courage and that´s what people want right now. We need to get loud and demonstrate the offices of all FAKE News. Peacefully of course. Send in the Hell´s Angels, the seals, whatever it takes.
But first there needs to be a leader or leaders to organize this the way we did for the Tea Party. I don´t care where the leadership comes from, but that person has to appear soon.

This is not going away because of Mueller´s involvement. In fact, it may even get worse. North Korea could send off a ballistic missile that hits the west coast and the press won´t bother to report it because they are so fixated on destroying Trump.

Paul Manafort investigation
Washington Examiner, by Diana Stancy Correll    Original Article

Paul Manafort, President Trump´s former campaign manager, is being investigated special counsel Robert Mueller for his actions spanning 11 years. Mueller, who is leading the federal Russia probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, has told Manafort his team intends to charge him with possible tax and financial crimes, according to CNN. This indicates the investigation is in the advanced stages and also signals the scope had exceeded Russia interference in the election. In July, the FBI conducted a search of Manafort´s home. The search warrant said the investigation

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham endorsed a carbon tax on Tuesday during a Yale University climate change conference hosted by former Secretary of State John Kerry. "I´m a Republican.

"A price on carbon — that´s the way to go in my view." The statement comes as many expect President Trump and the Republican leadership to begin as soon

ABC journalist Terry Moran suffered a full meltdown as he reacted to Donald Trump’s United Nations speech on Tuesday. The network´s chief foreign correspondent condemned the President’s warning to North Korea as “bordering on the threat of a war crime.” Bizarrely, he claimed that the speech, which warned Iran and condemned socialism in Venezuela, was one Vladimir Putin would give and that dictators everywhere would love. Trump told the United Nations that if America is “forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.” In response, Moran freaked out: “The words

Brown, an outspoken Trump critic, issued an usually harsh derision of Trump supporters after dismissing the president’s rhetoric on climate change science and U.S. policy toward North Korea as “stupid and dangerous and silly.” “They’re both kind of very similar,” Brown said. “You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves.” Brown attended the climate event, which coincided with the U.N. meeting in New York,

The Wisconsin Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that the state´s right-to-work law was constitutional and ordered a district court to dismiss a union lawsuit on Tuesday. The three-judge panel effectively ended a suit from a coalition of the state´s largest labor unions seeking to block the 2015 law, known as Act 1, from taking effect. The Court said the unions failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the law, which prohibits companies from mandating union membership as a condition of employment, violated the state Constitution by unlawfully denying them property without compensation.

NBC News chairman Andy Lack confessed to nervousness about Megyn Kelly´s upcoming network morning show, saying the risk is "unnerving" and "a little scary." Kelly, the former Fox News host, is debuting her daily 9 a.m. ET show "Megyn Kelly Today" on Sept. 25. Her summertime "Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly" newsmagazine program served as a test launch of sorts, but it disappointed, both critically and in the ratings. Lack signed Kelly away from Fox with an offer reportedly worth more than $17 million a year. Her show will follow Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer on NBC´s treasured "Today" show,

The organizer of a triathlon in North Carolina called “Tri at the Trump” has canceled the event because people were mad that it was supposed to occur at a Trump National golf course. The swimming, biking, and running race had been scheduled to occur at the Trump National Golf Club on Oct. 8 in Mooresville, reports The Charlotte Observer. Proceeds from the “Tri at the Trump” race would have benefitted children with cancer and other terminal diseases. The race organizer, Chuck McAllister, said he had received a number of complaints about the name of the triathlon and its association with Trump. McAllister initially tried

The Big Idea: If I had to stock Hillary Clinton’s new memoir in a bookstore, I’d be tempted to place it in a section on self-help or bereavement. “What Happened” was quickly strip-mined for political nuggets after its publication last Tuesday. As I went through it over the weekend, though, what struck me most was how the wounded Democrat coped after her crushing defeat last November. In short, Clinton has read voraciously and eclectically — for escape, for solace and for answers. The collection of works that she cites across 494 pages showcases a top-flight intellect and would make for a compelling graduate school seminar.

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” while reacting to President Donald Trump’s speech at United Nations, former White House press secretary for the Obama administration Josh Earnest said the overall speech lacked “coherence,” and Trump mocking North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un was “foolish.” Earnest said, “Having sat in the hall of the United Nations where the president of the United States delivers an address for gathered world leaders — that’s something I did for the last three years—what you know world leaders are looking for in that room is a coherent strategy for taking on the biggest challenges around the

Climate change poses less of an immediate threat to the planet than previously thought because scientists got their modelling wrong, a new study has found. New research by British scientists reveals the world is being polluted and warming up less quickly than 10-year-old forecasts predicted, giving countries more time to get a grip on their carbon output. (Snip) The discrepancy means nations could continue emitting carbon dioxide at the current rate for another 20 years before the target was breached, instead of the three to five predicted by the previous model. “When you are talking about a budget of 1.5

Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown of California compared President Donald Trump supporters to prehistoric cave dwellers Monday during a New York climate event. Brown, an outspoken Trump critic, issued an usually harsh derision of Trump supporters after dismissing the president’s rhetoric on climate change science and U.S. policy toward North Korea as “stupid and dangerous and silly.” “They’re both kind of very similar,” Brown said. “You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves.” Brown attended the climate event, which coincided with the U.N. meeting in New York,

Liberal Brown University is set to offer segregated dinners for black and Muslim students on the tail of recent Antifa protests that have turned violent over the last few months. Purporting to offer “racial reconciliation,” Brown administrators took a $300,000 grant from the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) to “break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community,” the College Fix reported. The money was supplied by donations by liberal organizations such as the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and Newman’s Own Foundation. There will be two separate segregated “dinner discussion groups,” one for African

U.S. investigators wiretapped President Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to a report by CNN that vindicates the president’s earlier claims, which were mocked as a conspiracy theory. President Trump had tweeted on March 4: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” (Tweet) Breitbart News editor Joel Pollak had reported the day before Trump’s tweet that the Obama administration “sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign: continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found.” Trump’s claim,

Hillary Clinton on Monday would not rule out the possibility of challenging the results of the 2016 presidential election, saying it’s clear the Russians influenced the outcome and that the legitimacy of President Trump’s victory could be called into question as congressional and independent probes into Russian involvement move forward. (Snip) “I wouldn’t rule it out,” she said, though she quickly admitted there’s virtually no legal path forward, and that challenging election results at this point would be unprecedented. “There are scholars, academics, who have arguments that it would be [possible], but I don’t think they’re on

President Trump disturbed some in the press after vowing in his United Nations speech to "destroy" North Korea should the country attack the U.S. In his speech, Trump referred to North Korean President Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man" and said he was on a "suicide mission" in advancing the country´s nuclear weapons development. "The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea," he said. On Twitter, MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell said Trump "threatened to commit a war crime" by threatening North Korea.
