For some reason Donald Trump believes that the testimony of James Comey vindicated him.

Okay well I watched all of that testimony yesterday and what I heard is that Trump tried to bully Comey into dropping his investigation against Michael Flynn, that Trump is a liar who cannot be trusted, and that Comey is convinced that he was fired in order to end the Russian investigations.

And THAT by the way seems to be what most people heard as well.
Besides how can Trump say he was vindicated by the testimony while also claiming that Comey made false statements and lied?

However if Trump really wants that vindication he can volunteer those tapes that he hinted about.
In fact there is a Democratic Senator urging him to do just that:

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on Thursday that if President Trump disagrees with former FBI Director James Comey, he should publicly release any tapes of their conversations. 

"It's awfully curious that no one from the president's team will either confirm or deny the existence of the tapes when the tapes are the only way to prove that Mr. Comey's testimony, which came under oath, are false or misleading," Schumer said. 

Comey also said that he wanted any such tapes to be released.

Which is essentially how we know no such tapes exist. If Trump had them, and they really vindicated him, we would have definitely heard them by now.

But all is not lost, another Democratic Senator is inviting Trump to testify under oath just like James Comey did: 

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) is calling for President Trump to testify before congressional investigators about his interactions with fired FBI Director James Comey, after the former top cop testified before a Senate panel about his conversations with the president. 

"What’s most important is that investigators in the Senate and at the Department of Justice get all the facts and find the truth," Murphy said in a statement. 

"If the White House’s account differs from what we heard today, the American people deserve to hear the president’s side of the story in a similar forum — under oath and open to the press," he added.

Now this of course will never happen either, but just for a moment try to imagine how many times Trump would commit perjury just within the first ten minutes.

I am willing to bet it would be a new record.

But like I said it will likely never happen.

So since Trump will never agree to actually do anything substantial to vindicate himself, I guess we are left with the image that Comey painted of him. That being an arrogant untrustworthy bully who tried to stop in investigation that would reveal truths about him and his campaign that he wants to keep hidden.

  2. When, not if, Drumpf perjures hisself lying under oath, who will be blamed for it?

    Will wingnuts decide perjury by wingnut isn't sufficiently misdemeanor enough to rate impeachment?

    "Comey did not say whether or not he personally believes Trump obstructed justice by firing him. But Comey noted that Trump said he “hoped” the then-FBI director would “let go” of an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. That conversation occurred shortly after Trump fired Flynn for misleading the administration about contacts he had with Russia, Comey said.

    “That’s up to Bob Mueller’s job to find out,” Comey said of any potential obstruction of justice."

    ot?"When people hear about Russian organized crime, they picture a stereotypical Russian thug, said Galeotti, the Russian crime expert.

    “Yes there are tattooed thugs around, he said.

    “The kind of Russian gangster one sees in America is more likely to be a fraudster, a hacker or semi-criminal businessman.”

    Actually I think Trump would like nothing more than to get in front of the senate panel. He has lied himself out of most things and gotten away with it. Of course not realizing that it was really his lawyers getting him out of it. I think he thinks he can do as he pleases and is completely confused by not being able to. He is not really smart enough to understand what would happen if he perjures himself, that he would just get out of it later. His instincts are to go back to what got him to where he is - which is a con man. Only his lawyers and family are holding him back and I don't know if they will be able to much longer. Look at how hard it is to stop his tiny twitter hands.

      I can see him, huddled on the toilet, Tweeting, like a little kid, thinking he's so smart to evade the grownups.

    Trump is a fucking idiot and only sees what he wants to see.

    He doesn't listen to anyone around him and was shown to be the ass (yesterday via Comey's various statements) we all know him to be!

    He will never last through his term!

    His sorry fat, white ass needs to be impeached.

    Our retired military neighbor's response on if the POS will be impeached: "If they couldn't impeach Obama, trump will never be impeached." Yeah, it is this incredible disconnect as long as they have a white guy in power, everything is okay and it is the Democrats fault. Where is the outrage on the Russian meddling in our election from these uber patriots? That's right, the white guy won so all is fair. Sad

    A similar self delusion(or more likely outright lying) as Sarah Palin's Branchflower conclusion.

      Yup, it's in the bullying liars' handbook. Deny, deny, deny. And reframe everything as positive. It's just amazing what people will let you get away with.

  16. There are no tapes.

    Trump is a liar.

    He is also a fool.

    He thinks if he doubles down on his lies they'll eventually be "the truth". He thinks everyone is as stupid as the Deplorables that worship him.

    The world would be laughing at him but they're taking time out to laugh at Theresa May right now.

    geeez what an embarrassment - trump's speech at this press conference is a string of nonsense, lies, bragging, and repetitive run-on sentences.

    Poor Romania - they need the U.S. so he forced to kiss trump's butt and stroke his ego - sounds like Nato never ever did anything against terrorism until trump showed up and saved the day ugh!!!!

  20. During press conference Trump just said that Comey lied under oath and said HE would also be willing to testify to that fact under oath.

    I am going to need much more popcorn for this!

    1. Anonymous11:33 AM

      I don't think an oath means much to the liar in chief. He would simply say what seemed opportune to him in the moment.

    2. Anonymous12:36 PM

      but it will mean something to the courts and Congress.

    3. "HE would also be willing to testify to that fact under oath."
      Sure. And he told us repeatedly that he would show us his tax returns.

    4. Marthe4:53 AM

      Exactly. I'm glad you brought up the tax returns. He always finds a lousy excuse to get out of his promises. This time, he'll say that his lawyers forbid him to testify under oath because the investigation is a witch hunt and anything he says would be turned against him.

  21. Anonymous1:16 PM

    If Trump *does* testify under oath, all we'll have is 2 guys who testified under oath, one of whom lies at every possible opportunity, the other who seems more truthful. And the Right-Wingers will continue to believe the lies. They already think Comey is lying.

    Comey was fired on May 9th, he testified that trump was not under investigation at that time.

    However that doesn’t mean little donnie is not under investigation at this time, many things have been discovered since May 9th.

    So he is hardly vindicated.

    This isn’t about Comey’s testimony anymore; this is about the senators complementing Comey for his service, integrity, his writing style :). They have worked with him before; they know whether he is telling the truth.

    That is what little donnie is fuming about !!!!

  24. Anonymous8:28 PM

    Just to show exactly how unpresidential donnie is, he makes the leader of Romania endure a press conference.

    I am sure he had better things to do then listen to more of donnies lies.
