America's so-called president meeting and joking with the Russians, who possibly put Trump in office.

Trump welcomed Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and Ambassador Kislyak to the White House at the request of Vladimir Putin, and Trump did not want photos of his meeting with these two Russians to get out to the public. Only Russian media were allowed to photograph the meeting. Trump reportedly was infuriated that the Russians put these photos on the internet. 

Russians with camera equipment in the Oval Office?  A national security risk? Not just my speculation, but people who've dealt with Russia and its spies. 

Trump is seen here having a jolly good time with agents from a country that is hostile to the United States of America -- a good time Trump didn't want the American people to see.

Let that sink in.

The Russians punked Trump. They obviously did not care that he did not want the photos public. Trump is way out of his league when it comes to dealing with the Russians. They are laughing AT him, not WITH him.

He is an amateur in a professional's job.

Hope there's something to this

Lots of nifty references : Paul Manafort, FBI raid, money laundering, Trump Taj Mahal, Russia, Roger Stone.

Four more months - Four more months

Ducky, Jerry, Ray,


From VOX:

Many Republicans — from White House staffers to members of Congress to conservative pundits — have been insisting for two days now, despite widespread reports, that President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey had nothing to do with Comey’s investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 election.

Now, in an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, Trump has admitted it did.

Asked by Holt about the White House’s initial story that he fired Comey because of a recommendation by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Trump said, “I was gonna fire him regardless of the recommendation.”

In explaining how he made up his mind, the president directly brought up the Russia case, calling it a “made-up story”:

He [Rosenstein] made a recommendation, he’s highly respected, very good guy, very smart guy. The Democrats like him, the Republicans like him. He made a recommendation. But regardless of [the] recommendation, I was going to fire Comey. Knowing there was no good time do it!

And 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 for having lost an election that they should’ve won.”

And the reason they should’ve won it is, the electoral college is almost impossible for a Republican to win, it’s very hard, because you start off at such a disadvantage. So everybody was thinking they should have won the election. This was an excuse for having lost an election.
Comey publicly confirmed that he was investigating Trump allies’ links to Russia back in March. A recent Wall Street Journal report by Shane Harris and Carol Lee claims that the probe has gotten rather serious, with Comey receiving daily updates and being “concerned by information showing possible evidence of collusion,” according to “people with knowledge of the matter.” But Trump has publicly dismissed the allegations in the investigation as “fake news” and asked when “this taxpayer funded charade” will “end”

If you look closely enough, you can see the strings that operate the Trump puppet. He's almost life-like! Scary.

G.G.:

"I have no trouble seeing the Comey firing as obstruction of Justice, following as it did Trump's Queeg Like tantrums and a memo directing Sessions and Rosenstein to cobble together a cover-up. Apparently 68% of the roaches and maggots and assorted vermin who follow the Fox train to Hell, responded to a poll saying they approve."

Re: Trump tweeting that Comey had better not have tapes before leaking
Even on Trump's own terms, a colossally stupid thing to do. Tapes documenting presidential lying or malfeasance are an extraordinary possibility to raise, a Nixonian echo of history in a country awash in comparison of Comey's firing with Watergate. Raising them in the context of a possible leak, when the FBI as an institution is dismayed at Comey's firing, doubly so. He raises the question of just why he doesn't want the tapes to exist. Is he afraid of them? All gratuitous. It's hard to overstate the stupidity of threatening Comey, a not easily intimidated man, before he testifies as a private citizen. And all that before the sheer inappropriate nastiness. But this is Trump, for whom all deals must have a winner, Trump, and a looooser, whomever he deals with. So he had to make sure it was clear that Comey is the looooser. That is, in fact, far from clear, and he points that out.
Trump has no filter save narcissism, ego, insecurity. And nobody in the White House helps him by providing that judgment which he manifestly does not have.
