Comey Memo Says Trump Asked Him to End Flynn Investigation.

Quote
Mr. Comey wrote the memo detailing his conversation with the president immediately after the meeting, which took place the day after Mr. Flynn resigned, according to two people who read the memo. It was part of a paper trail Mr. Comey created documenting what he perceived as the president’s improper efforts to influence a continuing investigation. An F.B.I. agent’s contemporaneous notes are widely held up in court as credible evidence of conversations.

Mr. Comey shared the existence of the memo with senior F.B.I. officials and close associates. The New York Times has not viewed a copy of the memo, which is unclassified, but one of Mr. Comey’s associates read parts of it to a Times reporter.

“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” Mr. Trump told Mr. Comey, according to the memo. “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”

Mr. Trump told Mr. Comey that Mr. Flynn had done nothing wrong, according to the memo.

Mr. Comey did not say anything to Mr. Trump about curtailing the investigation, only replying: “I agree he is a good guy.”

In a statement, the White House denied the version of events in the memo.

“While the president has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the president has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn,” the statement said. “The president has the utmost respect for our law enforcement agencies, and all investigations. This is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr. Comey.”

Turns out he also asked Comey to imprison journalists. Trump is like a whole century's worth of scandals in a single day.

It must upset him that Maduro is better at going full dictator while Trump still has checks and balances to slow him down.

Still not gonna happen. Not with a Republican majority led by Spineless Ryan. And even if the House does do it, the Senate needs a 2/3 majority to convict on it.

Maybe so.  But I think we are heading toward a hearing.  It might have to wait until after the mid-terms.  If the general population gets pissed off enough it might proceed sooner.  People do all sorts of things to save their jobs.  The heat on the GOP is increasing.

Appointed by W, so can't be attacked too heavily as partisan.  Inspired appointment.

Also, this:  https://www.c-span.org/video/?428495-2/representative-al-green-calls-trump-impeachment

I was worried the Dems would sit on their hands, rather than push for this and have the GOP defend why they won't go forward.

What a great day yesterday was!  The Deputy AG did something I did not think he had the balls to do.  Bravo!

So Michael Flynn has decided he won't honor a Senate Intelligence committee subpoena for documents regarding Russia.

WTF? When did a subpoena become optional?

it's optional if you don't mind going to jail. depends on whether senator burr is serious or not. betting that if burr isn't serious (who wants some easy money?), mueller will be.

thought this was interesting:

Report: Trump Told Flynn, Who Is Seeking Immunity to Testify Before Congress, to “Stay Strong”

think burr would do anything if trump told flynn not to testify? witness tampering ftw.

update: senator burr is now saying that flynn hasn't refused to cooperate; he simply has not yet responded to the subpoena. don't hold your breath on this one.

Report: Trump Told Russians He Fired 'Nut Job' Comey Because Of Investigation

Quote
"I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job," Trump told the Russian foreign minister and U.S. ambassador on May 10 during an Oval Office meeting, according to a transcript of the meeting read to The Times by a U.S. official. "I faced great pressure because of Russia. That's taken off."

White House press secretary Sean Spicer did not dispute the account of the conversation to The Times and, in a statement to NPR, argued that the Russia investigation was harming U.S. foreign policy.
