Trump says he did not ask Comey to end investigation

Source: CNN

President Donald Trump said Thursday he did not ask FBI Director James Comey to end his investigation into Russia's involvement in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Trump emphatically said "no" when asked during a joint news conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in the White House's East Room.

1. Let him continue to lie.

We will get more dirt on him that way, and maybe get rid of him.

13. Exactly.

All his shit is catching up with him. He thought he was so smart.

And he did all this to himself.

18. That's what happens.....

when you surround yourself with 'yes men' your entire life. No one ever dared tell him he's only one step above plant life in intelligence. That's a tough lesson to learn at 70 years of age, and during the most important part of his "illustrious" career. Will Donnie Trump finally learn a lesson in humility? I doubt it. Nothing seems to penetrate that cement head of his. He'll go to prison thinking he was the subject of a "witch hunt", and blame everyone else for his crimes. It seems a fitting end to his life though. It's all been a sham, a lie. Buh bye, "Don-the-Con". It wasn't nice knowing ya'.

20. It will be someone else's fault.

It will be Obama or Clinton getting back at him for losing the election.

He is so vengeful he might think it was Obama getting back at him for the whole birtherism thing.

Oh, we do. Comey's notes.

8. That's nice but that's not what Comey's memo alleges

It says he wanted him to back off Flynn. In Twitler's mind Russia and Flynn are two separate things.

9. Parsing...

He did not use those exact words so he can "honestly" deny saying them.

(Bill Clinton not having "sex with that woman" was technically true if sex meant intercourse.)

Asking the FBI for a favor putting the country at risk is far worse than lying about a sexual act in my opinion.

11. Trump has 'diarrhea of the mouth' and 'constipation' of the brain'.

It will be impossible for him to "lawyer up". His own ego and delusions will bring him down.

I hope he keeps the news conferences coming daily. I'm betting he will cause at least TWO international incidents on his 'Piss Off The World' tour.

17. The question isn't all that bad

when asked by a rookie. In the corporate world getting fired is generally the end of it. In that context it's a stupid question, but no more. Of course if Comey is telling the truth and Trump is lying, well, that makes it worse. Like a coverup.

Maybe on the flight East tomorrow they can show "All The Presidents Men" on AF1.

He's Mr. Honest in a grease suit.
