A man of the people uses terms like “nut job” to describe other people who behave oddly.
Former FBI Director James Comey behaved very oddly in relationship to the Clinton email investigation. If you ignore the bullsh*t being pushed out about what a great public servant Comey is, you’ll find plenty in his background that merits a mildly derogatory term like “nut job.”
Of course, Donald Trump’s behavior could also merit the label “nut job,” depending on how you look at it.
Today’s news du jour about Trump’s alleged comment about Comey is much ado about nothing. Didn’t Obama call Trump a “bullshitter” without any blow back from the press? Our melanin enhanced ex-president apparently gets a pass when he gets rude.
Trump had every right under law to fire Comey for any reason or no reason. That’s not stopping the Deep State stooges from demanding his impeachment though.
The ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee on Friday urged Chair Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) to demand documents from the White House that show the President expressing relief to top Russian diplomats over his firing of the FBI director.
“This new report that President Trump openly admitted to the Russians that he ‘faced great pressure’ from the FBI’s criminal investigation that was ‘taken off’ when he fired Director Comey is astonishing—and extremely troubling,” Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) said in a statement. “If these White House documents in fact exist memorializing the President’s statements to the Russians, the Oversight Committee needs to obtain copies immediately.”
Cummings’ statement came on the heels of a New York Times report that Trump told the Russian foreign minister and ambassador to the United States that he was relieved he’d gotten rid of former FBI Director James Comey.
“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Trump said, according to a document summarizing the meeting that was read out to the newspaper by an anonymous American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”
In his statement, Cummings invoked Chaffetz’s “subpoena pen,” a reference to the Oversight Committee chairman’s request that the FBI hand over memos that Comey reportedly wrote to document his interactions with Trump.
“Chairman Chaffetz should request these White House documents today and have his subpoena pen ready—just as he did earlier this week with the memos written by Director Comey,” Cummings said.
Obviously, getting rid of a loose cannon FBI Director would take the pressure off any president. Comey has already testified that he was not pressured by President Trump to slow walk or curtail any investigation.
Thus, today, as usual, we’ve seen more FAKE NEWS.
