Donald Trump rushes to defend Carter Page who claims that he can prove James Comey and John Brennan lied under oath.


Courtesy of Salon: 

Citing a letter Page wrote to the House Intelligence Committee on Monday, Trump announced to the country that Page could prove that former FBI Director James Comey and former CIA Director John Brennan had lied under oath.

Trump also tweeted that Democrats in Congress were actively trying to stall Page’s testimony. His claim appears to be based on a “Fox and Friends” segment. Minutes before Trump’s tweet, “Fox and Friends” reported on the letter in which Page seemed to suggest, without basis, that members of the intelligence committee were preventing his testimony. 

“I have learned from your Committee staff on this Memorial Day holiday that I might not be immediately afforded the opportunity to address the false or misleading testimony by James Comey, John Brennan, et al, as per our previously scheduled appointment for next week,” Page wrote in the letter, obtained by Business Insider. “In the interest of finally providing the American people with some accurate information at long last, I hope that we can proceed with this straight dialogue soon.” 

The president appears mighty confident that Page is being truthful when he says that he has “accurate information” that could exonerate him.

Which based on page's past performances is risky to say the least.

I would assume that Trump is betting that the intelligence agencies will be unwilling to produce the classified information it would take to refute Page's testimony, but I cannot believe that he has not considered what a shit show it would be for his side to have Page cross examined by the Democrats in Congress.

And this comes after Sean Spicer tried to cover for Trump by saying that Page “is an individual who the president-elect does not know and was put on notice months ago by the campaign.”

Well it certainly sounds like he knows him now.

And he better have a damn good story to tell since apparently James Comey is ready to testify again as well.

Courtesy of CNN:

Fired FBI director James Comey plans to testify publicly in the Senate as early as next week to confirm bombshell accusations that President Donald Trump pressured him to end his investigation into a top Trump aide's ties to Russia, a source close to the issue said Wednesday. 

Damn, shit just got real. 

Personally I am all for Carter Page testifying, hell he could not even keep it together while being questioned by MSNBC's Chris Hayes, I can only imagine how fucked he will be once the Intelligence Committee sinks their teeth into him.

    Everyone's a saint when they talk about someone else's sins. Truest statement in the world.

    Liberals, of course, are the most hypocritical.

      So, logically then, according to your own post--condemning the "hypocrisy" of liberals makes you a saint, right?

      All hail, bow down.

      It's small government and every man for himself in gop land? That's until they need something,like Food,because their job let them go. Medical care,because their kid has suddenly had emergency surgery and you now have no insurance. Now,you can't cover your rent so you're applying for housing and any assistance you can find to keep your Conservative Sorry Ass off the street. See how that works? ?? And that can happen to any of us,conservative or liberal. Our safety nets are needed. Doesn't matter how you vote. Nobody can predict when shit might hit the fan and They might be the ones with their hands out. A warm bed and nutritious food sound pretty good when you have nothing. Guess that's asking too much from some people.

  3. I'm sure the Republicans will lob soft balls and try their best to cover and protect their co-conspiritors.

    Man, I so with Al Franken and Elizabeth Warren were on these committees, even if it isn't their areas of expertise. You can't get anything by those two. They are whip smart and very biting in their questions, demands for answers and refusal to be misdirected or denied.

    ". Kushner had grown up bantering about politics; he'd bought a website devoted to the minutia of Jersey politics. But this was something else. This was primal.
    As Kushner has told it, the young scion glimpsed a world outside his own Upper East Side bubble, a country roiled by grievance and frustration, looking for the champion Trump was eager to become. The data-focused real estate magnate returned to New York convinced that his father-in law would be the Republican nominee. "

    OT?"Trump is the person most likely to be quoted by or retweeted by Trump, according to the Casino.org analysis."
    "The analysis speculated that Trump may also be “a bit obsessed” with another perceived enemy, former President Barack Obama"
