The Take-Down?

Mark Hosenball and Susan Heavey. 2017, May 16. Trump asked Comey to end investigation of Michael Flynn: source. Reuters, http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-russia-tweets-idUSKCN18C19Y
U.S. President Donald Trump asked then-FBI Director James Comey to end the agency's investigation into ties between former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russia, according to a source who has seen a memo written by Comey.   
The explosive new development on Tuesday followed a week of tumult at the White House after Trump fired Comey and then discussed sensitive national security information about Islamic State with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

  1. They are trying to take down Trump, even if it costs a nuclear war, the end of the earth, as a war between Russia and USA would end.

    those who lie about this are horrific

    I hope we see this the same way.

  2. Pffttttt. Another poppycock from the corporate media, mainly from the retarded New York Times. Mike Flynn was cleared by the FBI back in January and Jim Comey's memo comes from February.The claim is that Trump took Comey aside and asked him to back off the Mike Flynn investigation, so some people are saying well that is obstruction of justice. Technically true but only conditionally. Only true under several circumstances. First, we have to assume that Comey is actually telling the truth because at this point, he's not very trustworthy.

    
Also, partisan Democrats who wanted Clinton to win called for his resignation saying he's lying, he’s, trying to affect our political situation, he’s trying to swing the election and everything under the sun. HillaryClinton herself said about a week blamed her loss on Jim Comey. Why is everyone all of sudden assuming Comey is telling the truth? The Democrats never believed him prior to this news. Why now? It's so obvious that Jim Comey who was fired by Trump has a serious vendetta.

    However, if there is serious evidence, Trump may get impeached, but not removed from office. There is a large difference. Impeachment is basically a way of castigating the president from the legislatures. Big deal. Bill Clinton was impeached his approval ratings increased. Whatever.

  3. My opinion is that Trump's alleged Russian biases are the CIA take-down strategy. That said, I believe that Trump has demonstrated that he his unfit to govern as president. He is de-regulating finance, environmental protection, and health and human services. He is intent on turning the US into a predator's paradise.

  4. On May 3rd Comey told a Senate investigating committee that no one had tried to interfere with Russian probe. The "memo" surely can not be evidence of obstruction of justice, since if it were so, then Comey would be in hot water for failing post haste to report this to the DOJ. Comey could be guilty of violating three Federal statutes: two for his failure to report obstruction of justice and one for perjury. Obviously Comey can not be trusted which we should realize by now given last summer, etc.
