    In an Oval Office meeting last week, President Donald Trump reportedly told Russian diplomats that ex-FBI Director James Comey is a "nut job" and that firing him relieved "great pressure," according to The New York Times.

    "I just fired the head of the FBI. He was crazy, a real nut job," Trump reportedly said. "I faced great pressure because of Russia. That's taken off."

    The newspaper cited a document summarizing the meeting. The summary was read to the Times by an American official.

    The newspaper notes that press secretary Sean Spicer "did not dispute the account." The White House also did not dispute it when asked subsequently by NBC News.

    The White House spokesman said in a statement to CNBC that Comey "created unnecessary pressure on our ability to engage and negotiate with Russia."

    Being loyal to an insecure boss like Trump ensures everyone will be a giant dick. People who don't play along get fired or quit.

    McClatchy: Trump-Russia probe now includes possible cover-up, Congress is told


    https://twitter.com/BraddJaffy/statu...63565415534593


    "The election interference aspect, which was first alleged in October in a report by the U.S. intelligence community, appears to be an accepted fact, said Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., who has been at the center of some of the more explosive congressional revelations about the Russia probe. What’s really left to be determined, he said, is whether there was “collusion with the Russians, and the possibility of an attempt to cover up.”"

    All this talk about Russian interference in the election, but has anyone ever detailed what specifically the interference was?

    Releasing Hillary's emails? Wikileaks stuff? What exactly are they alleging that the Russians actually did?

    Trump is 11th level chessing. When all of this blows over, he will have carte blanche to do anything.

    6 seconds after he becomes sufficiently toxic to Republican re election chances. They've had him dead to rights on emoluments from day 1.
    The amount of energy necessary to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude larger than is required to produce it.
