Donald Trump Admits He Fired Comey Because Of Russia Investigation
May 12th, 2017 at 8:28am
Print Post  
Earlier this week, Donald Trump fired James Comey, who as Director of the FBI was conducting an investigation into Trump’s role in a Russian attack against the United States in 2016. At the time, the Trump White House insisted that the firing of Comey was not an attempt to stifle the Russia investigation. However, the Acting FBI Director testified to Congress yesterday that Trump’s explanations of why and how the firing took place were inaccurate.
Last night, Trump put a nail in his own coffin by admitting on national television that yes, he fired James Comey because he was angry about the investigation into the links between Trump and Russian spies sent by Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. Trump declared, “In fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said, ‘You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story, it’s an excuse by the Democrats.'”
It is no longer conjecture that Trump fired Comey to try to stop the investigation of his collusion with a Russian attack against the United States. Trump himself confirmed it.
How can Republicans in Congress convene today without beginning the impeachment process? Sadly, they are likely to go forward in the same way that they have ignored all of the other astonishingly terrible things Donald Trump has done.
Donald Trump may be a corrupt, criminal, volatile, senile traitor, but he’s a Republican. So, we can count on Republicans in Congress to do nothing as this crisis grows.

How is it a media lie?  Trump said it in an interview.  Asked about why he fired Comey, he responded with "the Russia thing".  And he came to this decision before conferring with Sessions.

http://dailycaller.com/2017/05/11/senate-judiciary-chair-hints-that-comey-reveal...

"The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee suggested on Thursday that former FBI Director James Comey informed him last week that President Trump is not a subject of the bureau’s Russia investigation.

Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley hinted that Comey made the revelation about Trump during a closed, classified session following a committee hearing last week. California Sen. Dianne Feinstein also attended."

I expect Comey will be asked next Tuesday, when he appears before this COmmittee, to clear this up so they all can tell the truth.

If this proves to be true, then Comey has been not just sticking to presenting the facts when he speaks to the press and in open hearings; he's been playing politics and misleading the American people, about the President being under investigation, while telling the Senate behind closed doors, that he is not!

The point in this thread is that Trump admitted he fired Comey because of the "Russia thing".  This has nothing to do with what you think Comey told the senate.

Maybe what Trump was referring to was that he was tired of the thus far, unproven accusations. I'm sure it will all play out rather soon.

And he thought that would help the situation?

You are presuming that he thinks before he acts or speaks.

This would be a reasonable interpretation. Then again, those on the left have no capacity for being reasonable.  They see things that aren't there and any evidence which refutes their narrative drives them absolutely bonkers!  So be it;  It's time to move on
