Trump Told Russians That Firing ‘Nut Job’ Comey Eased Pressure From Investigation

President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office this month that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved “great pressure” on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting.

“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”

Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.”

The conversation, during a May 10 meeting — the day after he fired Mr. Comey — reinforces the notion that Mr. Trump dismissed him primarily because of the bureau’s investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian operatives. Mr. Trump said as much in one televised interview, but the White House has offered changing justifications for the firing.

The White House document that contained Mr. Trump’s comments was based on notes taken from inside the Oval Office and has been circulated as the official account of the meeting. One official read quotations to The Times, and a second official confirmed the broad outlines of the discussion.

Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, did not dispute the account.

If he fired Comey purely to kill the Russia investigation that's obstruction. Trump is so f**king stupid he just says it. He doesn't even have the circuits of self-preservation in his brain.

I think the New York Times has the Oval Office bugged...  Or did they get this from Putin?

#1 this story is true and has been confirmed by the WH.

#2 this clearly shows that Trump didn't fire Comey because the Russians "told him to" as some were stating

#3 looks like Trump is admitting to firing Comey to have "more flexibility" - <---- sound familiar?

#4 Comey is clearly a "nut job" if he (as reported by his friend) "tried to blend in with the drapes so Trump wouldn't see him)

#5 Comey needed to be fired as he clearly had an agenda, mislead congress, was a distraction, let Hillary off the hook etc...

#6 Since this is true, Trump is basically admitting to obstruction and should be impeached, period.

Also being reported is that someone very close to Trump that works for Trump in the WH is being investigated now for collusion.... My guess is that it's his son in law, but idk.
