Someone can write any damn thing about someone else... that doesn't make it true. Comey better have further evidence or the only person getting charged with anything will be Comey himself.


Trump provided one piece of corroborating evidence by asserting that he fired Comey because of the Trump-Russia investigation.  This is the very investigation that was looking at Flynn.  Trump tells Comey to drop the investigation, Comey doesn't, Trump fires Comey.

Trump likely meant the way Comey was handling the Russia investigation, in the same interview he went on to say that he does want the investigation on Russian interference to go on.
The Flynn thing is bullshit.

You're going to have to post actual links and not screen-shots.  The FBI said they found no wrong-doing in terms of Flynn's call to the Russian diplomat the day that Obama laid down sanctions.  That's different from clearing him entirely.

Not even Trump is saying Flynn was off the hook as of 1/24.

From February 14: "Flynn has also not been cleared in the broader investigation into whether he and others in the Trump campaign were in regular contact with Russian officials during the election" (Source).

Flynn was cleared by the FBI on January 24th, there was no reason for Trump to ask Comey to clear Flynn in February as Flynn was no longer under FBI investigation.
Flynn is under investigation by the various Congressional committees, but not the FBI anymore, so there was nothing for Trump to ask Comey to clear.

Are you saying that Trump made up the story?

Michael Flynn was cleared by the FBI on January 24 2017... all other investigations of him are being done by other committees. Trump had no reason to ask Comey to stop an FBI investigation that was already dismissed.

No, I'm saying Comey probably did.

The January 24th clearing (the NY Post story screenshot in the tweet links to a Washington Post story (fake news!!!)) seems to relate to the phone calls. It doesn't appear he was completely cleared in other aspects of the investigation. It also seems like the FBI was looking into whether he had lied to them after that January 24th headline.
