True.

I'll revise my statement.

The idea Trump has reason be irritated for Comey not publicly clearing him has been shot down.

Jan 26-Yates warns WH re Flynn. Next day, Trump demands loyalty from Comey.

Feb 13-Flynn is fired. Next day, Trump asks Comey to drop case.

60-some RNC staffers—including some in windowless room in HQ clipping video—to lead anti-Comey push for White House

Good point on twitter: "Remarkable to see the GOP go hard negative against a Republican Whitewater attorney and Bush appointee later confirmed 93-1 as FBI"

There is no way this lives up to the limitless coverage it's getting. I'll be shocked if we get new but significant info.


...but I'm listening to the audio anyway.

His statement already shot down any chance for Trump to be in trouble.

McCain is rambling and does not sound good. Comey explaining the difference in two investigations reminds me of trying to explain things to my MIL.

According to Comey, Lynch actually told him not to investigate the Clintons. Wow.

That's not what I heard. I heard she asked him to call it by another name, but I'm sure the evidence had it been found would have been as sweet.

“I didn’t say that,” he said. “I mean, I will tell you I didn’t say that. And there’d be nothing wrong if I did say that, according to everybody that I’ve read today.”
I didn't do it, but if I had, it would be fine. Uhhuh.

To be fair, he did have a strategy to defeat ISIS, hire Mattis for SoD and mostly let him deal with them as he sees fit.

Like creating shovel ready "jobs for jihadis?"

State Department under fire for saying finding 'jobs' for jihadis - not 'killing them' - is the only way to defeat ISIS, as White House avoids saying latest beheading victims were Christian

I'm not sure I get "we won't confirm or deny because the press used an anonymous source".

Aren't there more important things upon which to determine this?

Trump says no tapes.

Next question: What was he trying to achieve by implying to Comey there might be tapes? (I think we know the answer)

The answer being he forgot to press the Record button, and didn't realize until after the tweets went out?

No, he was trying to intimidate Comey into silence. Which I'm not sure is entirely legal either.

Playing games. Implying he had proof to back up his story. Intimidation.

Back up whose story, though?

I should probably know this already, but at this point, what are the actual differences in claims about what happened in their discussions.

There's something to be said for that, true... however I think a recording would provide a lot of context for tone, for certain comments.

I hope the investigation goes away! (said like barney fife)
I hope the investigation goes away! (said like tony soprano)

I couldn't tell you but I feel like the admin or lawyers have said Comeys testimony isn't accurate. Probably whatever parts could get Trump in trouble.

Tapes? That's so 1970's. They're on a thumb drive

I'm trying not to parse the twitter statement because if I do, it leaves room for a 3rd party having done it.

I'll wait for whatever response he sends to intelligence committee as the real answer.

Trump claims his tweet made Comey tell the truth. I could swear his lawyer said Comeys testimony wasn't completely truthful. Gas lighting through incompetence

Conaway indicated he expects a formal response from the White House and is not regarding Trumps teeets as that response. Curious what he will do if they fail to reply by today's deadline.
