RE: Comey fired
LDH I'm curious, how do you think Trump is doing so far? You were one of his most rabid supporters earlier. Are you still?

Seriously just fuck RIGHT off with that nonsense. Using 'made a mistake' as a reason for Hillary's emails wasn't acceptable to the conservatives, so don't even fucking TRY with that bullshit.

I made my comment BEFORE I heard what Trump's official position is. Trump is not claiming ignorance of the law, he's outright claiming he never said it to begin with. Comey was the one fired, so he has the ax to grind. Maybe Trump said it, maybe he didn't. Comey's word against Trump's. At this point, Comey's testimony is a little suspect considering he said he decided to release the contents of the memo only after Trump's tweet, however the NYT was reporting the contents of the memo BEFORE Trump made the tweet in question (a full day in fact). As Trump's lawyer pointed out, this makes Comey appear to be falsifying his statement.

Maybe there is a second leaker who leaked it first?

Wouldn't surprise me at all, it's starting to look like every other person is leaking. The FBI did have copies.

It's possible. But as Marco Rubio pointed out, everything about the Rusian investigation has been leaked, with the exception of the fact that Trump isn't even a subject of the investigation. I believe this to be the reason Comey was fired. Comey refused to announce to the world that Trump wasn't under investigation. Comey says almost all of the so called classified leaks are wrong, and he said Trump has never asked to have the Russian investigation stopped, and he confirmed that Trump supported the investigation even if it proved someone close to him was doing something unlawful in regards to the Russians. Trump has every right to be upset that the American public is under the impression that he is a subject of the investigation when in fact he is not. He is not wrong to ask for the truth to be told.

Except that never happened and maybe Trump should be looking for another lawyer. Apparently he's having troubles finding any competent ones willing to both risk their reputation and their wallets since apparently Trump doesn't pay his lawyers either. I guess he got what he could.


" 'Although Mr. Comey testified he only leaked the memos in response to a tweet, the public record reveals that the New York Times was quoting from these memos the day before the referenced tweet, which belies Mr. Comey’s excuse for this unauthorized disclosure of privileged information and appears to entirely retaliatory. We will leave it the appropriate authorities to determine whether this leaks should be investigated along with all those others being investigated.'

Kasowitz is referring to this Times article about Trump’s alleged request for loyalty from Comey. It includes quotes from the conversation with Trump and Comey, but doesn’t refer to the memo. "

Cool story. If that tape exists, we'd have seen it by now.

Putin's waiting until its release will cause the most chaos. Won't be long now. It'll come through Wikileaks because Putin is a man who relishes irony.

Bullshit. Trump lies every time his lips move. That has been demonstrated over and over.

Comey does not lie. He's never been know to lie.
Ever.

If Trump was ignorant of the law, why then did he repeatedly "clear the room" ?
One does not clear a room, if what one knows one is about to do, is legal.

Even an amateur gets that the time-line proposed by Dumpy's lawyer today is flat-out wrong. A baby could do better.

Unless it proves again, Trump is a liar. We KNOW Trump lies constantly.
