Comey's Revenge

https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/05/1....html?referer=
Quote:
President Trump asked the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, to shut down the federal investigation into Mr. Trumpís former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, in an Oval Office meeting in February, according to a memo that Mr. Comey wrote shortly after the meeting.
Comey left a paper trail after every time he talked to trump.

Nixon was impeached for this exact reason

Obstruction of Justice

Nixon was never impeached. He resigned first.

That would happen but people like the FBI and the police are required to note activities related to their investigation and hold their muster in court.

If I were Comey at this point, I would ask for close protection. Who knows what this administration is capable of. Accidents do happen.
Good for him though...

To make this entire situation go away Trump could have declassified Flynn's transcripts because as a president it is within his authority. Even if he wasn't aware he had this power (because he is a blathering idiot) his advisers must have alerted him to the possibility of doing so.

Thus Trump could have simply shared transcripts of Flynn's calls with Russian ambassador to clear his name and to clear Flynn's name.

The fact that he didn't do so means he is hiding incriminating evidence of collusion.

Furthermore: it also strongly implies this evidence points to Trump himself because otherwise he wouldn't hesitate to throw Flynn under the bus to clear himself.

And the liberal media was once again too soft on Trump, they repeatedly should have asked him a question if he read Flynn's transcripts. And if there was nothing there, why didn't Trump declassify those transcripts to defuse the situation surrounding his dealings with Russians ?

Now the Flynn situation is once again coming to the boil, Trump is well on his way towards impeachment: his cronies can't protect him forever.

Based on what I just read this is because those boys drop dead before they can start official questioning or what ever the word is.

This is seriously cutting to my sleeping time now. It's not even funny in any way but what ever comes now is our Kennedy moment, or 9/11 moment, everybody remembers where they were when they heard it the first time

Oh boy, your daily dose of nothing Trump news bashing.

Regarding leaking classified info to the Russians, even though Trump apparently didn't do it, why wasn't it much of a story when Obama did precisely the same thing?

I NEVER heard about this, until your post. Imagine that.

"Back in the summer of 2016, the Obama administration provided some information to the Russians about some of the things happening on the ground. Guess what happened? The Russians then attacked some of those sites of our allies, our proxies that we were working with. And that’s a problem."

HyPoCrItEs.


I've got a gut feeling trump has dropped the other glove and poop is about to start flying.

The press would be licking her pumps after she banned them. Well, all but three reporters, whom had to stick to the questions she provided them.
Remember folks, Hillary HATES the press.

Here in lies the problem. It is a double standard.

Many posters here complain about why certain posters bring up the HRC investigations from last year, saying it has nothing to do with the current stories. It does because there are two sets of rules.

The press hates Trump and every story is spun their way as bad.
Trump certainly could have handled things better and sometimes he is his worst enemy, but c'mon.. every story ... every one is spun negative toward Trump.

I have a suggestion for the Democrats. They have been taking a whoopin in elections for a few cycles now. And they have no message only to tear down the guy that beat HRC that shocked the shit out of them last November.

2018 might be another shocker for them. I read that their are 10 seats up for re-election. All in states that Trump won.

How could this loyalty meeting already be confirmed as fact?
It can't.

First of all Trump did leak classified info to the Russians because McMaster didn't flatly refuse it when asked precisely that.

Based on quickly perusing the above link (and 2 links within) the two situations are nowhere near equivalent, are you guys 12-year old ? Because most 12-year olds have better critical thinking and analysis skills than whoever brings this up to "prove" Obama is just like Trump:

Obama:

1) His administration made a mistake (quickly corrected) of releasing a name of CIA chief in Afghanistan among the list of U.S. officials participating in President Obama’s surprise visit with U.S. troops.
2) His administration offered enhanced targeting information to the Russian airforce (so they can attack ISIS more accurately) in return for some political & tactical concessions.

Trump:

1) For no valid reason (other than to boast) released top secret information to the enemy Russian state which irrevocably damaged US relationship with allies and will impede US capability to gather foreign intelligence.
In other words: Trump single-handedly destroyed US allies trust in the integrity of our intelligence which puts entire country in jeopardy just because he behaves like a 6-year old child who tries to impress his friend (not realizing that Russians aren't his friends).

This is the problem with "alt right" or whatever this cancer is called nowadays: you either lack basic skills to compare apples to oranges and/or you fell prey to Trump's brainwashing so you can't even think for yourself anymore. SAD.
