In news conference Trump denies telling James Comey to back off Russia investigation.

Courtesy of WaPo: 

President Trump on Thursday denied ever asking FBI Director James B. Comey to back off his agency’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, and the role played by former national security adviser Michael Flynn. 

Asked whether he urged Comey to ease up on the Flynn investigation, Trump said at a news conference, “No, no," before ordering the media to move onto the “next question."

This of course directly contradicts reports of that Comey memo, which is dumb of Trump because he has to KNOW that the memo is going to be subpoenaed and show up in at least one of these investigations.

Trump also claimed that Comey was fired because of his poor performance before the Senate Judiciary Committee. 
That was also when Comey said that he was made "mildly nauseous" by the idea that he might have helped to change the outcome of the election.

Also during this brief press conference Trump reiterated that the Russian investigation was a "witch hunt" and that it was hurting the country.

Courtesy of the New York Times:

President Trump insisted on Thursday that there was no collusion between his presidential campaign and Russian officials, though he added, “I can only speak for myself.” 

Mr. Trump, speaking in the East Room of the White House, said he respected the appointment of a special counsel to investigate ties with Russia. 

“The entire thing has been a witch hunt,” Mr. Trump said. “There’s no collusion between, certainly, myself and my campaign — but I can only speak for myself — and the Russians — zero.” 

The president said the questions surrounding his campaign and Russia were divisive. 

“I think it divides the country,” Mr. Trump said. “I think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things.”

Yes, the country is divided between those who still support the president that Vladimir Putin chose to undermine our democracy and damage our country's credibility, and those who do not.

Can you guess which camp I'm in?

      If Trump does end up rehiring Flynn, it would mean that Trump et al. lied when they said that Trump made the right decision to fire Flynn after Flynn mislead Pence about his status. Another lie, big shock!!!

      IIRC, you can't pardon someone for a crime they hadn't yet been charged with, let one convicted of.

      All tRUMP will need is a cooperative federal prosecutor to charge Flynn in a kangaroo court, Flynn pleads guilty at the arraignment, and then tRUMP pardons Flynn.

      Wallah!


      Should take about 30 minutes.

      And OF COURSE Trump knows that memo will be subpoenaed, that's why he's trying to smear Comey as a liar. And because he is an imbecile, he actually thinks it's going to work. Just another example of how far out of his depth he is. He is too incompetent to even know how incompetent he is.

    New day, new lies and excuses. He is setting up everyone around him to take the fall, like he did in his businesses. Only problem this isn’t a business, it is the government.

    He has begun the whining about the leakers again, sorry donnie, the American public has the right to know what in the hell is going on in the W. H.

    What is interesting in all this is the fact that the stated reason for the special prosecutor is to look into whether russia interfered in the election.

    Nothing mentioned about trump. He must have a guilt conscience :)

    President Trump said James Comey had a “poor performance” at the Senate intel hearing because he didn’t say what he wanted him to say.

    Report: Trump Official Offered Insurers Quid Pro Quo For O’Care Repeal

    A top official in the Health and Human Services Department allegedly suggested that if insurers supported the House GOP Obamacare repeal bill, the administration would continue funding subsidies that President Trump has threatened to halt that keep out-of-pocket costs down for low income consumers,

    The offer — put forward by Seema Verma, the Trump-appointed administrator of the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare (pictured above) — left insurance industry officials “stunned,” the newspaper said.

    “It made no sense,” one of the officials told the Times......

    MSNBC. Hardball with Chris Matthews.

    Why does he keep brining up the Russian Romanov name? Weird.

    Is it because President Wilson helped the Royal family escaped after England said no?

    What will happen when it's exposed?

    Will Russia declare war and seize assets and investments with Russia's money?

    Will all family members be ousted and sent home to Mother Russia?

      Can't talk about the Romanov history without talking about Bannon. Whoops, Rasputin.

      But actually I think Sarah's buddy Franklin Graham might be Trump's modern day Rasputin.


      Rasputin? Putin...

    I am surprised that little donnie hasn’t come up with the excuse that since former FBI Director Robert Mueller worked with Comey, he can’t be impartial and fires him or claims the findings are FAKE before he even begins to investigate.

    Also I saw an Israeli reporter on CBC news stating that Bibi is afraid of little donnie, I find that hilarious, one cowardly bully afraid of the other cowardly bully.

    As for re-hiring Flynn, has he forgotten the LIE they used as the excuse to fire Flynn. Flynn lied to Mikey.
