Trump Responds To Comey Testimony

Earlier today we noted that CNN, and its anonymous sources, seemingly made a 'mistake' by reporting that Comey would offer testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee tomorrow refuting Trump's prior claims that he had been told on three separate occasions by the former FBI Director that he was not personally under investigation.  Unfortunately, at least for CNN, Comey's opening comments released earlier today confirmed that Trump's original statements were, in fact, perfectly accurate (see "Looks Like CNN's Anonymous Sources Got This One Wrong"). 

Marc Kasowitz, the lawyer representing President Trump in the Russia probe, has now released Trump's thoughts on Comey's opening statements saying he feels "completely and totally vindicated."

"The president is pleased that Mr. Comey has finally publicly confirmed his private reports that the President was not under investigation in any Russia probe. The President feels completely and totally vindicated. He is eager to continue to move forward with his agenda."


Meanwhile, the RNC has also weighed in:

"President Trump was right.  Director Comey's statement reconfirmed what the president has been saying all along - he was never under investigation."


Of course, while we now know that Trump was never under investigation for colluding with the Russians, we're sure the MSM will turn their attention to whether or not he's officially under investigation for "obstructing justice."  If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

And, for those who missed it, here are the three instances, directly from Comey's testimony, in which he personally told President Trump he was not under investigation:

1.  January 6th Meeting at Trump Tower:

"In that context, prior to the January 6 meeting, I discussed with the FBI’s leadership team whether I should be prepared to assure President-Elect Trump that we were not investigating him personally. That was true; we did not have an open counter-intelligence case on him. We agreed I should do so if circumstances warranted. During our one-on-one meeting at Trump Tower, based on President Elect Trump’s reaction to the briefing and without him directly asking the question, I offered that assurance."


2.  January 27th Dinner at White House:

"During the dinner, the President returned to the salacious material I had briefed him about on January 6, and, as he had done previously, expressed his disgust for the allegations and strongly denied them. He said he was considering ordering me to investigate the alleged incident to prove it didn’t happen. I replied that he should give that careful thought because it might create a narrative that we were investigating him personally, which we weren’t, and because it was very difficult to prove a negative. He said he would think about it and asked me to think about it."


3.  March 30 Phone Call:

"I explained that we had briefed the leadership of Congress on exactly which individuals we were investigating and that we had told those Congressional leaders that we were not personally investigating President Trump. I reminded him I had previously told him that."

Comey [allegedly] signs on with the Jerry Springer show ... anonymous sources report he will undergo his transgender surgery in Phuket by the hands of highly skilled Ladyboy doctors.The tricky "ball removal procedure" will be carried out by none other then Dr Hung Lo from Beijing who has successfully removed more balls [technically called, Ballectomy, for those serious medical affectionados on zh] then any other surgeon in the world.Hormonal treatment has already begun, credible secret sources have been heard to say.Sources also report that the Klinton Krime Foundation is [allegedly] sponsoring his surgeries and expensive hormone shots.

The Republicans will not allow Trump to be impeached, but this show is far from over. This will be a death strike by a thousand cuts until the 2018 elections. The Democrats don't want Trump gone, they just want him discredited. Still, with the old guard of Pelosi, Waters, Finestein and the Clintons controlling the Democrat Party, the Sanders wing will have no one to vote for and little motivation to go out and vote against the incumbents. However, if the Special Prosecutor can get into the Trump family finances, then many other things are possible

Man, this should put Mark Warner's Depends in a wad tomorrow morning. Perhaps someone should give him a WTI-Crude enema (since we have a lot in storage) before the Drama Queen testifies in the morning.

Worse than that. Hannity, Limbaugh and Levin have been duped by this Mike Rogers clown. They think him a hero for clearing Trump. Listen more closely..."In my three plus years as director, nobody has tried to....". That gives two and a half years of cover to Obama, Rice, Jarrett et al.

Comey Schmomey. Everyone is just so desperate to get Trump out of office. Dumb Liberals. Donald Trump is the KING of the stock market, and under his leadership we will see S&P 500 at around 3000 by year end.

Everybody needs to start at the endgame and work backwards.The endgame is to marginalize and remove Trump; the chaos is energized by a divided, ignorant, entitled citizenry, which in turn empowers a corrupt and defunct Congress to continue the shitshow, providing cover...If it's all broken, it's all broken.  The People are failing.Too simple, eh?
