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

The conversation, during a May 10 meeting ó the day after he fired Mr. Comey ó reinforces the notion that Mr. Trump dismissed him primarily because of the bureauís investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian operatives. Mr. Trump said as much in one televised interview, but the White House has offered changing justifications for the firing.

He would NOT be dumb enough to think (if he actually did anything WRONG) that firing Comey would END all investigations! - hello?!

Just the OPPOSITE! - He would would want to get the witch hunt over ASAP! Keeping Comey on, would have done that, but instead, he did what was BEST for the country, rather than best for himself.

LOL!!! NO sources!!! All it says is" according to a document summarizing the meeting." and "based on notes taken from inside the Oval Office and has been circulated as the official account of the meeting. One official read quotations to The Times, and a second official confirmed the broad outlines of the discussion."

Just MORE fake news, with vague sources.

I feel sorry for people that FALL for stuff so incredibly easy. The must get duped their entire lives!

Given the implications, a comments will be required eventually....likely the administration will not do so willingly or truthfully until under oath. Even then much 5th pleading will be used and hopefully then his devotees will wake up...(though I doubt it).
