Trump Told Russians Firing "Nut Job Comey" Eased Pressure From Investigation

Tyler Durden's picture

It's that time of day again. The market is nearly closed, the weekend draws close and the mainstream media needs a new narrative. Well voila - from none other than anonymously source US officials, The New York Times proclaims that

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.”

Is that what they are laughing at in this image? Or are they scoffing at Anthony Weiner's sexts?

The NYTimes adds that 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.

Additionally, one official read quotations to The Times, and a second official confirmed the broad outlines of the discussion, suggesting that the long knives close to Trump may be getting sharper.

There may heva been a method to Trump's madness, an "art of the deal" if you will. According to yet another government official briefed on the meeting and quoted by the NYT, "Trump was using a negotiating tactic when he told Mr. Lavrov about the “pressure” he was under. The idea was to create a sense of obligation with Russian officials and to coax concessions out of Mr. Lavrov - on Syria, Ukraine and other issues - by saying that Russian meddling in last year’s election had created enormous political problems for Mr. Trump."

It's unclear if this particular approach worked, although in retrospect it certainly provided hours of entertainment for the Russian foreign ministry.

In response to the NYT story, the White House did not deny the quotes but instead said that Comey's "grandstanding" and "politicizing" of the Russia probe hurt diplomatic efforts with Moscow. 

"The President has always emphasized the importance of making deals with Russia as it relates to Syria, Ukraine, defeating ISIS and other key issues for the benefit and safety of the American people," White House spokesman Sean Spicer says in statement. "By grandstanding and politicizing the investigation into Russia’s actions, James Comey created unnecessary pressure on our ability to engage and negotiate with Russia," Spicer says

"The investigation would have always continued, and obviously, the termination of Comey would not have ended it" Spicer said adding that "once again, the real story is that our national security has been undermined by the leaking of private and highly classified conversations"

Meanwhile, Comey is now merely the latest high profile figure portrayed in a similar way by Trump:

Comey’s being "a real nut job" was the “classified” info the Libtards were bitching 'bout, I guess...   ;-)

Well, at least Comey has not teared or cried in public like Schumer, Boehner, Obama and Weiner…

Foam at the mouth a little maybe but no weeping.

 

How much Bullshit does the insane MSM think the country can take?

Comey = Nut Job.  Got it.

 

 

Now let's find out who killed Seth Rich.

My anonymous sources say Hillary ordered the hit but was disappointed with their plan so did it herself.  They also say I'm now a billionair so it must be true. I'm sure the bank is just waiting on the paper work.

WikiLeaks need to step up and bring some true dirt on Comey.

Leaking only the CIA hack tools is getting boring.

Anyone in the FBI? Are you listening? Start leaking, damn it.

When Trump fired Comey, Comey was "busy" giving a speech to a lady's aid social, rather than running the FBI-

"Crazy" seems an understatement.....

“Hillary ordered the hit but was disappointed with their plan so did it herself.“

I think if Hillary did it herself, there would be fang marks on his neck and he would have been down a few pints of blood.

"Nut job Comey" was fired. The beauty of me is that I can do this if I want. He investigated me, he would not drop the investigation when I asked, so I fired him.

This is how I run America. Don't say it is a banana republic now, it's not, it's a Trump affiliate. It's tremendous, I guarantee.

Believe me.

all true.  william k black or his designee would make a good fbi director.  he'd open some eyes.  he's got experience and a proven track record.

this dnc email theft to wikileaks is looking so obviously crooked (why didn't the fbi investigate the rich murder or examine the dnc servers?) that hillary clinton should employ a food and beverage taster.

the deep state may start to consider her the weak link.  possibly a candidate for a scaliattack.

Go ahead and keep calling me crazy, but Trump is the Muslim Anti-Christ.  Soon he will unite the Jews and Muslims against Christianity for the final battle.  Visiting Saudi Arabia and then Israel to solidify the coalition.

"The only U.S. president to make Saudi Arabia his first foreign visit, Trump was presented with the highest honor for a foreign dignitary, the collar of Abdulaziz al-Saud, named for the for the kingdom’s founder, which Salman hung on a thick gold chain around Trump’s neck."

Meanwhile the Jewish prince and princess, Kushner and Ivanka, watched with approval. Wonder whose idea it was to dispose of Seth Rich and frame him for leaks?  There is no morality for those seeking ultimate power - the Trump family.

Anonymous source told me ZH poster Schlump "used to caress the lightly haired balls of the black Jesus Obama blow up doll he regularly had anal sex with. Since Obama left office he just hasn't been able to climax and has reverted to fondeling his dogs balls and posting on ZH".

Must be true, this was from someone close to you who read the memo to me, but wanted to remain anonymous.

Fuck your Schlump, hope you enjoy this shit sandwich for another 8 great years. Your black Jesus is gone forever....

I laugh everyday at you and your like, so hard I sometimes piss my pants.

THIS IS WINNING. MAGA BITCH.

Trump just needs to engage brain before opening mouth and he will do just fine. 

jeff montanye's picture

most of the good trump does, has, is and will be thrust upon him by events.  apparently his presidency was considered so unlikely he was never vetted and brought under control by aipac, etc. and the cia, etc.  thus the grand war of the american empire's deep state (including media, financial, and clinton dead-ender auxilliaries) against, essentially, everyone else has commenced in broad daylight with a special counsel investigation to boot.

this is the crisis of our times.  (not) acting presidential, though it riles you and a number of my friends, is as nothing in comparison.

Analysis - TRUE

The fact that he has kept le deluge back for another 4 years is in itself a yuuuuge accomplishment. Hillary, the High Priestess of Moloch did not get to appoint the successor to the offed Scalia. Trump's agenda, while nominally sidelined, still proceeds. A previously demoralized ICE is finally unshackled and they can and will continue to enforce THE LAW as it exists on the books. Obama and Alefantis continue to strategize in next door neighbor Tony's dungeon... err, basement art gallery.

More leaks than any prior administration.
Hostile media more negative than ever before.
Hostile intelligence community tries to destroy him at any opportunity.
Trump completely straightjacketed.

Innocent babies can have chromosomal problems. Or they can suffer injury in the birth canal. You however have no such excuse.

BJ Clinton fired Sessions who was investigating all too real allegations of the Clinton Mafia's financial improprieties (back when they were small peanuts... so cute when they're still little). So save it, Brock Boy.

Yeah, right, Retard; that's not what Lavrov or the recordings of the meeting say...

note seth rich is number 36 on this list (well, actually shares it with one of the clintons' security detail, apparently a very dangerous job).

If Hillary had killed Seth Rich herself, the bullet wounds would have been mostly in the groin area.

well, in hillary's defense, he was shot only in the back and was severely beaten as well.

actually they tried pretty dang hard to make it look nothing like a robbery.

ordinarily you would be right, but the warning component was so important to this particular hit she (they, i feel podesta at least and maybe mook were in on it) wanted all spectators to realize what will happen to you if you fuck with madame president to be.

This might move the indices a little more.  Seems the Houthis just conducted a missle strike on Riyadh, just before Trump arrives.
