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:

I found Matt Apuzzo's current DC home address in about 5 nano seconds. 

He looks older than 38, but that's him.

Since it been revealed by other news sites that National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster might be one of the leakers and that Deputy National Security Advisor Dina Powell definitely is leaking negative material, why is nothing done about it.
Powell has also been shown to be linked to Huma Abedin, Hillary and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Why is this woman not fired?

On the one leak McMaster and Powerl were the only other people in the room. So when the leaks come out one of them plays the source and the other is the second official who confirms.
I don't understand it; why is nothing done about these leaks.
Why is the FBI doing nothing?

Time to start locking up "journalist", no more fake sources.

anonymously source US officials

Fake news from the same usual MSM liars. 

Guitarbill's picture

More unsubstantiated news from the NYT...and where do they get this inside info? "according to a document summarizing the meeting". Yep, gone are the "sources" since they haven't worked out so well, now it's just a phantom document, that's all you get. Why? because it doesn't exist.

az_patriot's picture

Yup, totally fake.  It's amazing how this junk even gets printed and publicized.

3:00 P.M.  NY Times releases another nameless, anonymous-based "scandal" which contains...nothing illegal!

3:03 P.M. Washinton Post releases...the same or similar news!

Proper response:


"Yeah, so?"

It is really too bad that Washington is full of so many petty people who are so focused on bringing each other down that they have no time to actually fix the problems in the country caused by our parasitic money sucking government.

Maybe "Giant Meteor" is the solution. None of these petty little washington twits and their lackey's in the press really care about the country. The country is just a pawn in their little ego boosting games.

Pack them all in a C5A and drop them into their element in Venezuela.

The MSM is the enemy of the people.  They are trying to overthrow a duly elected POTUS by any means necessary.  The reason? They don't like him.  In a democracy you have to accept elections.  They are being reckless, If you stab the King you better damn well kill him.  If you only wound him there will be hell to pay.  I look forward to the glorious day that the POTUS gets his revenge.

The entry into mainstream media is very low.

All you need are anonymous sources!

Who is leaking all this info??

The new yawk times is a rag like many other rags around the country that are only good for two things.


One, after grabbing up mass stacks of the rag left conveniently all around the city, it makes for great fireplace and bon fire starting material.


Two, it makes for a great chicken cage floor liner.

Gives Yellow Journalism a whole new worthy meaning.



Extra Credit.:

I can answer the extra credit. Comey is a Deep State cock throating fuck who provided shade fo these treasonous fucks.

What did I win?

You ID a leaker by selectively revealing "interesting" information only before select tiny groups.

Then you monitor which information gets leaked.


Let's be clear about what is going on here.   This is a conspiracy to overturn the election by means of unelected bureaucrats.

Not acknowledged, but certainly true is that once done, the same bureaucrats could overturn any elected leader.

This is a conspiracy not just for a coup, but for complete regime change, changing the very form of government.


If this is not Treason then the word has no meaning.

Peep-walks aren't good enough to restore faith that the Elected are not a mere facade.

Gallows will be required.

You are 100% correct and any normal person would have tracked down the leaker/s months ago, and had them jailed on national security charges.

However Trump is not normal.

Great idea. Much like how the Navy manipulated the Japs to reveal their plan to overrun Midway Island.

ducksinarow's picture

It is like watching WWE wrestling only to find out the opponents went out for steaks and beer after the show was over. The average citizen is so removed from what really goes on in politics and deals with other countries that any news agency can say anything and it is believed as gospel.

YourAverageJoe's picture

Your average Joe believes nothing that's been credited to an anomynous source and broadcasted by any MSM agency.

I only go to them for the local weather. That can't be faked.

TIME to do in-depth research into exactly who these people are, why are they trying to destroy this country.

NY times

Who are their Twitter & Facebook followers

Who are the people they talk to,

Where do they eat, sleep.

Do they walk home late at night from bars.

Do they go to parks to meet up with anonymous sources.

You get the ID.


Time to get George Webb

Do you think Trump will ever learn to keep his fucking mouth shut, he is his own worst enemy.

Trump laughs with much more satisfaction with Russian Sergey Lavrov than he laughed when he was with the globalist Merkel.

OBRon's picture

Seems pretty obvious to me...

The NYT & WaPo have been losing revenue for years by attempting to report the news.

So their only viable option to stay afloat is to gravitate into the National Enquirer retail space.

Voila!  Fake news!

Soon we'll be seeing those rags at nationwide grocery check-out stands proclaiming "Exclusive!!! Elvis spotted in Alien spacecraft just offshore in Santa Monica!!!"

Im getting really pissed at zero hedge.
More and more, they put as their cheif lead story, crap from the NYT and others... papers that I wouldnt line my bird cage with.

Whats the freaking point anymore reading here when I can harm my IQ by going directly to the source?

Heck with ZH.

Yep, this seems to be one of these articles where the author has stuck hshis pointing finger into arse and smelled it for inspiration.

All Trump has to do to stop the NYT, is hop on the phone to Netanjupu and tell him if he doesn't stop his bitches at the NYT, he will hold back money to Israel.

lol - because all Jews think alike right? They are like one cluster Vulcan mind-meld.

Bibi already loves Trump to an extend that his wife probably won't let them meet in private (god knows what they'd be up to).

That is what they DO NOT DO to the slimy corrupted putrid snaky satanic/luciferic criminals that manage to slither their way into govts and places of power to do evil.

They do not vet them at all. Take that illegal alien soterobama for example. What a hoax he was. His whole porchmonky trot was a hoax America is still suffering for. Same same with the clown puppet cracker that preceded him, the great pretender. All ziorothschid puppets for the glory of the money-god.


Oh, but on the other side of the ship, thar be a crew a gatherin to lynch the fools that are causing all the idiotic maniac lies and dis-information that is coming from the fake stream media.

Here are some more important issues to bring to the fore.:


Gohmert: "Amazed Comey Confessing To A Crime The Way It Appears":


How Mueller's Investigation Could Turn Into a Raging McCarthyesque Witchhunt:

Yes! Because first we had to know, to admit, that the "slimy corrupted putrid snaky satanic/luciferic criminals" exist. It's knowledge and action that will save us!

Darkness is but light revealed.

Most people do not even realize there are these evil things working 24/7/365 to destroy and kill them all. Even each other.

Here is the kicker of the arse, though.:


Once again we see the sad truth in America for any real American to see. The truth is Americans get shat and baloney lies from their own supposed free press, and so the only place to get real news that resonates in the heart part where the Church of Truth resides is from Russian networks.


Sad. A darn horrible day in America when they are fed the evil dis/mis-information to further the agendas of the communist/nazi/zionist/satanic/luciferian/bankster/isrealli/jesuit etc etc etc evil mask wearing garbage toilets full of turds deluxe. Yes, very sad indeed.


Thank you for your light...keep on shining ALL you Crazy Diamonds!

FBI chief: Americans ‘should be suspicious of government power. I am’


The Washington Times - Wednesday, May 21, 2014


We were, that why Trump got in and now govt. says that's not going to work because Comey was right and should have jumped on the attack on Trump right away but he choked his chicken and that's what pissed Trump off. I hope the next guy is not a fucking worthless jew pervert.

I guess he should have jumped on Mao Bamaz case instead of being a fucking coward at the time.


Suspicion "was" his fucking job. He'd get run over by a 4 year old girl. Head of the FBI... what a joke. Just Us.
