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:

How so?

Jews didn't exist until Abraham.

Are we all decendents of Abraham?

Not even all Jews are decendents of Abraham.

We are all related to each other, therefore we are all related to the people referred to as Jews.  All people of Israeli descent are from the loins of Abraham.

Trump Is Going After Pedophilia to Dislodge the Deep State In a Stunningly Brilliant Move

 

Child sex trafficking researcher, Liz Crokin and I compared notes from our independent  investigations and a clear pattern emerged. Although it is not widely reported, Trump, through AG  Jeff Sessions is going after pdeophilia with a vengenance.

Lis and I both feel strongly, and have been told, that  Abedin, Weiner and possible Comey will be turning State’s evidence. .

This is a brilliant strategy and it explains why some of the establishment are nervous that Trump is talking with Putin. And guess what?  Putin is also on rampage against the practice as well.  Here is the story.

 

Saludos..

I HOPE.. stay tune...

An anonymous source reported that Trump fired Comey. Because while Comey was giving Trump head in the Oval Office. Comey gave Trump a terrible raking. Another anonymous source blamed the raking on Russia, claiming Putin had chipped Comey's tooth. Making the offending tooth sharp and jagged.

What's sick, is to smear people as pedos for transparent political reasons. 

Sick is to keep smearing a business untill some whack-job decides to take the law in his own hands.

Sick is to draw a gun in a resteraunt that by all accounts is nothing but a pizza parlor. 

People like you are a sickness and blight on the body politic.

You must have overlooked that little gem: "The White House did not deny the report"

Kefeer's picture

Just because the spoke person for the White House did NOT deny does not mean it was said. 

"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"

If Trump was elected to drain the swamp and lance the boil, I wish he would get on with it. He seems to be doing a lot of ass-covering and pocket lining so far. I give him credit for maintaining his rusted on supporters. Either he is far more intelligent than I gave him credit for, or his supporters far more stupid.

quax's picture

My money is on the latter.

I began eyeing the exit door on the Trump train when he started putting Goldman people in key places. Put one foot on the step when he gave Kushner the VP job.( Who has been more intrumental in decisions,him or Pence?).  When he started letting the wicked witch of the UN bash Russia with nonsensical rubbish, I still clung to the boarding bar beside the door. But when he bombed Syria just to show he could, I started watching the calendar waiting on 2020.

Comey would not pursue the Clinton crimes.He needs to have a thick skin. Trump is a NYC guy and doesn't mince words.

Comey is part of the permanant .gov bureaucracy -until the "Bongo Obobo" appointees are all  fired, it's not gonna get better.

I suspect that the treasonous leakers will be the first group to be arrested. They will take the new FBI/DOJ to the coup leaders. The coup leaders will takes us to Seth Rich's murderers. With the pressure off (Trump back channel influenced?), hopefully Julian Assange can point us in the right  errr left direction. And do not forget that the unmasking evidence should be a slam dunk!

He has the "Alex Jones" syndrome. (14 week member)

Alex Jones syndrome: When you watch news other than network provided propaganda for the first time,normally InfoWars because a friend told a friend etc,and suddenly everything from the amount of cereal in your Rice Crispys box to the telephone lineman becomes a government plot to overthrow the world so that it can be shepherded by shape shifting lizard people from the planet Niribu.

Who should Trump fire?  Steve Bannon & Sean Spicer are loyal supporters, did not attend meeting with the Russians.   Dina Habbib Powell is Deputy National Security Advisor, promotes Globalism and attended the meeting with the Russians.  Dina Powell is a member of the CFR and the Trilateral Commission.  She was a partner at Goldman Sachs.  Her ex-husband is Richard Powell who works with Bill Clinton at Teneo.  She is friends with Valerie Jarrett.

Who should Trump Fire?  All left overs from the previous administration.  Defund agencies that subvert the law. Oh, and fire the inhuman resource director who refuses to hire anyone who is supportive of the president and the people who elected him.

This is absolutely, positively, 100 percent, without a doubt, FAKE NEWS.  Trump never said any such thing -- ridiculous.  This "news" story has no sources other than itself.  More crap from liberal fucktards, the deep state, and the loony bin that wants to believe their shit.
