Trump's "I fired Comey" victory lap with Russians in the Oval Office is what triggered the FBI.

Remarkable final detail in this NYT piece.

FBI officials felt their decision to open a countelintel probe had been validated after Trump said this to visiting Russian officials in the Oval after Comey was fired: "I faced great pressure because of Russia. Thatís taken off."

31. So true

It speaks to how downright treasonous the gop Congress was as well that drumpf was not impeached and removed from office for that statement alone.

3. I remember a Russian guy who was walking out of the WH with someone and a reporter asked

about Comey's firing and he stopped and asked the reporter if he had really been fired.

27. Looks to me like Rex was playing right through it like he didnt say it.

Thats a cold customer. He knew that was a big error and just played right through it and got the guy out of there as fast as possible. I dunno.

10. American media was blocked from covering the meeting so we only found out from Russia media!

Incredible how Trump's WH banned our own news media from covering the closed door meeting but Russia media was allowed access and released the pictures

This was truly the icing on the what the fuck cake!

He bragged about firing Comey then
HE LET THE RUSSIAN PHOTOGRAPHER IN TO A CLOSED MEETING then
THE NEXT DAY THE WH ADMITTED THE RUSSIANS TRICKED THEM ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Clearly a WTF moment in history

17. Trump is a corrupt spiteful graspingly greedy individual that

has no business being POTUS nor cony control over others lives.

Trump did business with Russians and laundered corrupt Russian oligarch money but is probably too self-centered stupid to technically realize what he had wrought.

Trump is likely not a direct Russian asset but a willing dupe, a willing dupe being in practice cheaper and more effective than bought asset.

Seriously, each Monday the House should do a roll call vote on Impeachment. The Senate could then chose t ignore or show their own colors for the record. The next Monday a summary of the past weeks lies and other impeachable acts co0ul be summarized followed by another roll call Impeachment vote. etc.... Repeat until Trump is out of office.

I seriously worry that the MI will be a tool to normalize and cover rather than remove and convict.

Trump being elected is sign of a huge failure in our political system. The Media is bought and owned so as to be for entrenched wealth and power contrary to most People and the Earth.
