Trump Officials on Comey Memo: Dont See How Trump Isn't Completely F*cked

If you come at James Comey, you best not miss.

The former FBI directorwho President Donald Trump fired and then later threatened on Twitter last weekreportedly kept notes of their conversations, and some of those details are now making their way into public view. According to one of those memos, first reported by The New York Times on Tuesday, the president urged Comey to drop the FBIs investigation into Trumps former National Security Adviser.

The White House, through an anonymous press statement, flatly denied the Times reporting, which has since been confirmed by several other media organizations. (The Daily Beast could not immediately do so independently.) But the reported details already have someincluding attorneys, members of Congress, and law enforcement officials suggesting criminal wrongdoing.

"The obstruction of justice articles of impeachment counts are stacking up, it seems, an active duty FBI agent told The Daily Beast on Tuesday. Firing Comey, the agent added, was a big gamble. You've got to kill him, metaphorically. You can't just wound him."

Perhaps not the most important story but (1) I love the title; (2) I hope it's true; and (3) the premise is important--don't casually mess with a career prosecutor/law enforcement type.

Really, I think Comey likes his revenge served cold. And, no doubt, he knows how to wait for something, unlike the tRump.

Edited to add: I bet a former prosecutor and head of FBI knows how to deal with someone who tries to screw with him. Anyone want take my bet.

4. Here's a question that ought make you feel even better

Do you think during his career in law enforcement that Comey just might have learned a thing or two about how to get even with some scumbag who threatened him?

2. Now ain't it funny, Julian, that in a "normal" world, this would be a major story, with

hours and days spent analyzing it??!

But that's okay! It IS a righteous title, and we DO hope it's true, and it appears that when you poke the FBI, they'll most likely poke you back with deep and sincere vigor!!

Thanks for posting!

5. This is a very dangerous time for the country

One serious national or international event that calls for an American response may propel Trump to react in a way from which this country may never recover. And the Republican quislings will support him absolutely.

10. I was not happy with how he handled the Clinton investigation, but...

I have to say, if this memo actually exists and Trump is drummed out of office for it, Trump will live in the pages of US history as an absolute disgrace. I want that. I want that with a passion that burns as hot as 1000 suns!

12. I see it differently. An arsonist starts a forest fire, then offers a little bit of equipment to...

...help put it out. Is this in any way heroic?

How about one doesn't start a fire that burns the whole damned country down?

Comey politicized the FBI before the election. He almost certainly knew what was going on, and unless he's completely stupid, choosing to reveal a bullshit unjustified investigation on sham information on the Clinton case while keeping his Repuke mouth shut about traitors is unconscionable.

It's far too little, far too late. A great deal of irreparable damage has been done to our country and our system of Government, and it all centers on Comey's vicious politicization of the election.

He and Trump deserve each other.

13. Agreed. He put trump in and then realized too late what a fu_k up trump is.

He was trying to redeem himself with the collusion investigation but got fired by the a-hole he put in office.

That's some Shakespearean stuff there hoisted on his own petard.

17. The FBI investigators said something different

...they're saying Trump will die in jail.

You KNOW they've already got the goods on him!

It doesn't matter if Comey gets fired, they're all investigating this thing.

8. IMO trump was completely f**ked as a candidate yet he got "elected".

We saw scandal after scandal go after DJT when he was campaigning - stuff that would bring down any normal candidate.

The moment the Republicans no longer have the House - that's when Donald can be in trouble. If the Republicans lose the Senate and the House... oh boy.

I think he'll limp on to 2020.

9. Anyone think Trump is intentionally trying to get impeached?

He's practically flaunting treason in front of the country right now. Maybe he wants Congress to impeach him so he can quit and blame it all on Hillary, Obama, and Democrats.

He wants to be loved... adored. Impeachment will destroy him.

15. I agree

He has no conscious. He doesn't think he's doing anything wrong. In fact, he thinks HE is the one being "wronged".

Very serious mental illness ...

14. I said this the other day...

... I absolutely think some part of him is begging Congress to stop him and remove him. He won't resign since that would be admitting he's a POS, but if he's forcibly removed he gets to go home... and he gets to do his FAVORITE thing which is whine and play the victim, moaning "poor me" and blah blah blah.

Let's hope you are right because if so this will only escalate to the point where Congress HAS to act or their asses are on the line.

21. . . . moaning "poor" me on his 'News' network, then run as a 3rd party candidate in 2020.

Trump may well be the nail in the coffin for the Republican Party on a national level.

22. There is one big problem here:

He will no longer have the Russian funding upon which he depends. He won't be able to keep up his lavish lifestyle, and to lose that would be worse to him than death. He has run into funding situations like this in the past, but he was much younger and did have options. He has blown all those options over the years and now is down to none
