Subject: BS: Trump fires FBI Director Comey 9 May 201
From: Joe Offer
Date: 09 May 17 - 08:01 PM

Well, ya gotta give Trump credit for always having new tricks up his sleeve. The FBI has been quietly investigating the Trump campaign for its ties to Putin and Russia. It also not-so-quietly investigated Hillary Clinton for her use of email as Secretary of State. So, 6 months after the election, Trump uses Comey's handling of the Clinton matter during another President's administration, as grounds for firing an FBI director who is currently investing Trump.

Could it be that Comey was getting close to proving the involvement of Trump himself in the Russian conspiracy?

An interesting matter, indeed.

Is it time to impeach him yet?

This is all very Nixonian to me. The Romanov family was before my time. They solved the problem the old fashioned way.

Donald has turned James Comey into an anti anti hero. They say Luca Bratzi hand delivered the firing message. It read - YOU'R FIRED -
On TV Trump always got good ratings when he fired someone.

But seriously, Trump is to have an important meeting tomorrow.
He is meeting with the Russian Foreign Minister.

Trump said he fired Comey for not being nice to Hillary over her emails.

The recused Jeff Sessions is the one who was said to ask Trump to fire Comey.

Tommorrow Senator Schumer will ask for a special prosecutor at 9 AM - or the democrats will essentially go on strike.

You can't make this stuff up.


There is a chance that Trump may be successful in stonewalling this "fake Russian Collusion thing". Putting troops in the field usually helps change the subject.

It will take a deepthroat or a sacrificial lamb to deliver a coup de grace in the form of the truth about the Russian Trump oil deal.
If no one steps forward, this mess will continue until it feels boring or becomes a race to impeachment.

The congressional investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian hackers is nothing more than window dressing, employing only 9 staffers (this compared to 40 dedicated to the Benghazi investigation). Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a Trump appointed hatchet man, obviously has no interest or intention to investigate. The only viable investigation into Trump campaign's possible collusion with Russia WAS the one being headed by FBI Director Comey, now fired by the very object of his investigation.
If the Republicans in Congress don't immediately call for a special investigator and a FULL investigation, one can only assume that they are even willing to accept a treasonous president, as long as he is from their own party. The very foundation of our democracy is in the balance here. If the President gets away with this now, what will he try next.

Comey was very popular within the FBI in spite of his shortcomings so there are a lot of unhappy folks in the organization. Sometime soon a plain brown envelope will appear in the inbox of the Washington Post or the New York Times and the whole Russian thing will explode.

I do not believe Comey 'had it coming' in that he served his country poorly or with negative motives. On the other hand, Comey was on dicey political ground months ago. He went into detail on his Hilary investigation last Summer. He was the source of Election 2016's October Surprise. He made the comment before Congress that it made him slightly nauseous to think he might have had an effect on the 2016 Presidential election. He was allowed to stay in office until he could be questioned in front of Congress. He is not going anywhere other than out of office. The investigation into Russian manipulation of U.S. electoral politics goes on.
The President can reference a document by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to justify his action.
Trump has already proved himself a master at diverting attention from important issues.
We need to pay attention to Paul Ryan and what he and his crew are trying to do to health care. We need to pay attention to Trump's flouting of established policy on separating private business interests from the public interests he has sworn to represent. We need to pay attention to getting his tax returns released.
Eyes on the ball, people. Yes, that would be the 'money' ball. It always is.

Breaking wind News:

Guildenkrantz and Rosenstein are dead.
Chaffetz and two other Congressmen are ending their career in the house over Trump involvement. 3 people were fired, 2 recused themselves after water boarding, and countless Trump campaign associates have taken a powder.
Rats are leaving the sinking ship. Stupid rats remain.
In Russia the death toll over the the Trump treason plan is 7 and counting. Its good to be an American. :*)
All the above is near supposition and humor.

In the land of liars it is complicated to tell the truth.
Proving the lie is easier. Trump admitted he asked the FBI director on the status of the Trump Russia investigation. Improper but not a crime. Obstructing justice is a crime.

Comey is an awkward case. He seems to be an honest guy who was just out of his depth... and thus able to upset all sides. Latest evidence is that he was trying to do the Trump/Russia investigation, but as soon as he got on the right track, Trump used those earlier mistakes to get rid of him.... making it hard for pundits to do their usual simplistic analysis. It is just too much trouble for most of them to clarify that 'maybe he should have been fired, but NOT that way and not at that time with those lame excuses.'

   Trump is also an awkward case... he does so many dumb, hateful, embarrassing, contradictory and traitorous crap that it's hard to keep track of the current line of BS.

Mr. Red you warned us that Republicans would support Trump until he became untenable and then give Pence a turn.
Lying through your teeth is not an impeachable offense.
Likewise no single event meets the standard for removal by the 25th amendment.
Evidence of profound ignorance is not enough.

Nope, it will take a different Constitutional crises to give Donald a red card.

The cumulative damage to America world wide will continue to grow until then. The question arises, how much damage may America endure and how long will that damage endure in the post Trump era.

Democrats will certainly inherit the ruins, but at what cost?

Yesterday Trump signed his executive order in private to spend an unprecedented fortune to investigate the identity of the 3 million fraudulent voters who cost him the popular vote.

Naturally, Trump had to fire Comey to cover his ass. Now he will appoint someone to head the FBI who is more "loyal". Even better, someone who has skin in the game meaning someone who was involved in the crimes, like Giuliani. This person will have incentive to halt the investigation.

Most people posting here detest Trump with such a passion it seems to blind them to the dangers posed by the underlying reality. We have a democratically elected President who from the outset has been opposed by those who wish to destroy his Presidency. They have the media behind them and apparently many of the arms of government. They constantly question his mental competance and would try to impeach him on the basis of treasonable collusion with the Russians. As yet these allegations are totally unsubstantiated although from what the mainstream media say it would never be guessed that as yet there is no proof.
Where does this leave your so called democratic process if largely unknown, unelected persons can seek to destroy the legitimacy of the Presidency on the basis of as yet purely malicious rumours given wings by a captive media. This is driven, not by the above rumours, but because their favourite lost the election and they will stop at nothing to rectify their perceived error of the democratic vote.
Who are these people that set themselves above the law and would seek to overturn the will of the people?
You have a democracy in ashes yet you refuse to accept it because it will take you outside your comfort zone and force you to recognise that forces are at work sharing the same degree of legitimacy as your continued actions in Syria.

John Freeman. As the democratic process stands in the US with the electoral college ratifying the electoral choice for President, there is no argument but that Trump won the election. The reasons for having the electoral college are well known and sound. If you feel that the college is now an anachronism it is up to you and like minded people to enable it to be changed. Until such time as the procedure is changed then the electoral college will hold sway.
Continually bleating it is unfair is the epitome of false news.
The process is fair, democratic and part of the constitution and will remain so until such time as a winning proposition and vote changes the 12th Amendment.
The argument you present is as ridiculous as arguing day is night.

The old fraud can't decide which story about the Comey firing will play best in Peoria so yesterday in his press conference he shifted back to his original story that he acted on Rosenstein's "very, very stong recommendations" and away from his first denial of it when he claimed the dismissal was about the Russia investigation which could be another indicator of obstruction of justice on his part, while also yesterday, in a Senate hearing, Rosenstein told committee members that he was aware that Twit was going to fire Comey before he even wrote the memo. Twit's either lying again, which comes to him as naturally as breathing, or he's totally disconnected from reality. Actually, it looks like a combination of the two.

With the appointment of Mueller we have a chance for a fair, non-partisan investigation of Russia's involvement in the election. Anyone who cares about this country and it's institutions, including our election process, should welcome that and wonder why Twit's pushing back so hard against these various investigations. What is he afraid of. He may be innocent but if he is he seems to have forgotten, or has never been aware of, the Watergate-era adage "the coverup is worse than the crime".

"Bleating", if that's what it is, that something is unfair - isn't that what we get from Trump on a daily basis: 'oh, they're so unfair to me; nobody has ever been as unfair to anybody in the history of the world as everybody is to me. So unfair! #poorme'? - is not 'news', false or otherwise. It is opinion, and everyone knows it is opinion - agree or disagree, present your arguments like a grown-up, rational person - don't a 70-year-old whining baby TV celebrity as your model.

Still waiting for any type of hard evidence as yet none. Many on this forum act as though the various allegations have been proven. How sad is that. It is a good job none of you are responsible for implementing capital punishment, otherwise heaven knows how many innocents would have been thrown to the wolves.

Hacking the DNC is one aspect, a small aspect, of the Russian meddling in the US presidential election. The suggestions made publicly by Trump about the directions they should move with their hacks, and the revelations of all of his various supporters and advisers meeting with various Russians - including the fired Flynn, his current inept Attorney General (who had to recuse himself from the investigation because of his participation) and many others.

Then there are all of the Russians whom these Trump-supporting Americans contacted who are dying since the election. Is it eight or nine of them so far? In locked rooms, in parked cars, all in various shady circumstances. Putin is removing the links to the crimes that Trump and his ilk are being accused of. Treason.

Trump is a sociopath, elected narrowly via the electoral college by states that can probably be shown to have had undue pressure applied through back-room bots pushing what truly is fake news - through Russian hacking. It will unravel, as these things do. There is no point in wishing for prison time for Trump because Pence will pardon him, like Gerald Ford pardoned Nixon. Just get him the hell out of our faces and out of our lives.

Greg F: Long before the election warnings were issued about the security of electronic voting.Yet to save money paper votes were not insisted upon. Irregardless of perceived irregularities in the electronic vote, if it was felt by some to be susceptible then why did the process continue. Seems more than dumb to me. Or perhaps it was to give grounds for disputing the outcome should the vote have gone awry(as it did)
If the mainstream media was spread among multiple ownership perhaps the content could be given a higher level of trust. But what we have is continued sniping trying to built castles of air created from supposition, rumour and hearsay. In essence stories are circulated with zero tangible evidence shown to give any shred of support. No wonder religions can garnish so much support. Control the media, feed a line continuously and you control the people. Easy peasy!
Never in the field of bullshit has so much been achieved by so few to control so many.

Iains, the unfair nature of the electoral college system as it currently operates is well illustrated by Florida. Florida has 29 electoral college votes. Trump won Florida by a whisker. Fair outcome? Trump gets 15 votes, Clinton gets 14. Actual, unfair outcome? Trump gets 29 votes, Clinton gets none. That isn't whingeing or moaning, Iains. That is an unemotional characterisation of a ridiculously inequitable system. It isn't right for you to tell people to stop moaning and move on. They are perfectly right to point to how the system cheated Clinton. She won the popular vote by a considerable margin. If you can't see that there's something fundamentally wrong with a system that produces the outcome it did, well there's no helping you. Of course, we are where we are. But there will be a next time. It won't get fixed until lots of people whinge and moan in the way you disapprove of.

Trump is digging a hole that he can't get out of. As noted, he is a sociopath who can't help himself when it comes to the knee-jerk responses and lies to try to make himself look good and set himself in a beneficial business position.

Comey made mistakes, his timing was horrible as far as the timing of a statement regarding the still non-issue of Hillary's email. But he pissed off as many people on the right as well, so at least he was an equal-opportunity offender. The deputy AG who put Mueller in place may have drunk the Trump Koolaid to get his position (Comey didn't trust him because of the nonsense Trump was trying to put in place as far as a loyalty oath) but he chose well as far as an investigator. It has put the Trump White House into full assault-on-Mueller-mode: looking for regulations that will hamstring his investigation. The Keystone Cops are trying to sweep away the tide (mixed metaphors work particularly well for this awful administration).

When the investigation is concluded Trump will be out. But Pence is equally tainted. The problem is that the woman who WON the popular vote can't be awarded the office. To do that would be to tread on too many laws in place. If she'd won this time, she'd have run again in 2020 - so will she choose to run then? I doubt it, but if she tries, I think the chaos of the 2016 race will rise to the surface again. 2016 was Hillary's time, but the DNC tried too hard and Debbie Wasserman Schultz couldn't just leave well enough alone and let Bernie burn out and leave the field to Clinton.

I will note here that Ake is just plain clueless when it comes to his analysis of Hillary and her role in American government. His blinders are so huge that the moment he enters into one of these discussions of American politics he makes a spectacle of himself. "Conservative" politicians are in disarray now (because the party was first co-opted by the Tea Party, then watched impotently as Trump left a slime trail as he did a hostile takeover of the party). The Americans who voted for Trump were deluded by a television personality, they don't understand how government works. Neither does Trump. His ascension to office has probably been the single biggest boost to groups like the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, NAACP, and others. This will resolve itself - and a lot of people will have to learn how our government is really supposed to work in the process.

1) Like it or not the media is controlled by very few people and if you believe in editorial independence you can tell me all about fairies.
2) If you do not like the electoral college initiate change.
3)Until such time as investigations occur and report the US in a hiatus
of sensible government.
My own take on the situation is that the US has interfered in the democratic process and elections of other countries for decades. Does it really make sense for the powers that be to leave their own process open to manipulation? And if they apparently did(should the rumours be true) one would have to ask why?
The more allegations thrown at Trump the more it raises concerns about deep state.The majority view on this forum seems to take everything the media feeds them at face value. Is critical analysis dead? This I find extremely worrying.
I believe we are seeing mission creep for the engineered takedown of a President with increasingly outrageous allegations being publicised.
Excellent news for those responsible but bad news for both the electorate and the office of the President, irregardless of who is in office in the future. I would have thought a little analysis would be in order instead of wholesale cheering. Who actually benefits when all this has concluded. Emasculating the office of the Presidency benefits no one in my opinion.

The judicial system in the US is maddening at best and defers to wealth at worst.

Trump may be found innocent if he is insulated enough.

While he is no Teflon President and ignorance of the law is no defense he knows about sacrificial goats, loyalty and setting up fall guys and patsies.

Just looking guilty and having loads of circumstantial evidence is not enough for impeachment. Pense could be involved more deeply to the point of prosecution despite all his claims that he knows nothing. That leaves the speaker of the house in line for the Presidency.

Its too late for Pense to invoke the 25th amendment. Now he too faces a special prosecutor.

All of this speculation awaits the forthcoming evidence. The uninformed Trump base that blames media and routinely refutes facts automatically,
can be incited to do vengeful damage by Trump tweet orders and surrogate protests. For reasons to protect civility, the findings of Mueller may be altered to protect Americans from threats of insurrection. Maybe Trump will whine about unfairness all the way to exile in Mara Lago?

This sure is a nail biter all right

Trump isn't smarter than a fifth grader, he isn't a handicapped child, he isn't all of the names he has been called, because that assumes fifth graders are stupid or that handicapped children deserve that kind of mis-representation and abuse. Trump is a Sociopath with a gift of gab that enough Americans bought into and decided this was the change they wanted. All of those people who swallowed lies about Hillary hook, line, and sinker are ignoring the whoppers that Trump tells and don't seem to understand how severely compromised our country is right now. It's only the strength of the mainstream politicians and the silent but robust abilities of federal employees that are keeping things on an even keel as far as many agencies go.

Dismiss Democratic concerns all you want, but we have the moral high ground on this one. When Trump goes, he's going to go with a big messy explosion. And he will go. It's just a matter of time.

The late 90's is precisely the time the Russian mob came to DC and closed the doors of hundreds of small shops that would not pay tribute.
Inside of a year many places I enjoyed that had 1 owner were gone.
The Russian mobsters were a crude joke on one hand and operated with impunity on the other. This was also the time when brick and mortar stores were given an internet option so it wasn't all mob influence.
The Russian mob is much less visible today.

Do you get how Citizen's United is working like a charm now?

Trump wasn't able to block Mueller via any ethics statutes:
Washington Post story. He protested the appointment and wanted to show Mueller was ineligible.

Justice Department ethics experts have concluded that newly appointed special counsel Robert S. Mueller III can oversee the investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin during the 2016 presidential election — even though his former law firm represents several people who could be caught up in the matter, authorities announced Tuesday.

In an email, Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said ethics officials had reviewed the case and "determined that Mr. Mueller's participation in the matters assigned to him is appropriate." She said the officials had considered Mueller's professional obligations and those imposed by government ethics regulations.


Follow the link for the rest.

T***p lawyers up with Marc Kasowitz, who has represented him through various fraud, divorce and sexual misconduct difficulties. Perhaps it's finally starting to sink in that he wasn't elected dictator.
Interestingly, Kasowitz also represents Sberbank, Russia's largest state-controlled bank.

From MSNBC

Anyone still harboring any illusions that Twit is some kind of an anti-establishment populist need only look at the recent White House budget proposal which rewards his wealthy friends and family with massive tax cuts and hits the rural poor and working class, the demographic which gave him his most enthusiatic support, hardest of all. While this budget proposal has little chance of being implemented, too many Republican reps in rural areas, it is a good snapshot of Twit's atttitude towards common people, assumming he even knows what it contains.

And yet, they still love him.

Perhaps this will shine a light on Jared Kushner, Slumlord:

in NYC

in Baltimore

Like Father in Law, like Son in Law:

Donald Trump, despicable landlord

If people actually took the time to look into Trump's sad history they wouldn't have elected him dog catcher.

It looks more and more like we will have to bear shame and danger for the next two years until after the mid term elections.

Rules and laws are being broken but the nature of the evidence and testimony are all circumstantial. Guilty as hell yes but the nature of proof does not accomplish criminal prosecution or political impeachment yet. It will come close but no cigar. Unfortunately the Nazi types will fight for the failing fool ferociously until the bitter end. Somehow sounds familiar.

Well I would love to be surprised but it looks to me we will have to wait. And wait.
