I would write about the Comey Memo...

Donald Trump caught shooting President Kennedy? 
But I am sure if I wait another hour or two, there will be another source close to the President who will step into the shadows and anonymously declare he has undocumented evidence that Trump was the second shooter on the grassy knoll.

Congratulations, Ch. Your commentary almost achieves the heights of the following:

Issa Flips Off Reporter

This is a priceless detail from a Politico on the firestorm engulfing the White House:

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), when asked about the news by a Politico reporter, looked her in the eye, gave her the middle finger and walked away.

Like all House members, he is up for reelection in November 2018.

no kidding. but i suppose that after being in an 8 year coma it WOULD take the media at least this long to awaken from it.

The main stream media is absolutely out of control.

Limbaugh is right. They've become the leader of the opposition party.

How's your mother and grandmother?

did he?

good for him if it's true, but a betting man would bet against it ever happening. the msm has discovered that during republican presidencies, becoming completely unmoored from the truth is not just acceptable but expected and celebrated.

btw, where's dick cheney and a good old "go fuck yourself" when you need him?

Spam by our esteemed host whose thick headed tenet that trump does no wrong and is being unfairly treated by media will soon have more bad news to ignore.....Comey is better prepared than the donald and plays the game a whole lot better. You're fired don't work so well in DC as no R congress critter is defending the latest stupidity....wonder why????? Maybe trump can cite the CH defense as part of his spin. Yeah, that will sure help.. I'm sure loretta can help your cause with some more spam pedo comments.... LOL

Looks like Issa did something.....from a reputable source rather than an opinion from DF Rat Just another asshole republicon' who can't defend trump. Another R in trouble in his own district. This should help.

That's Rep Darrell Issa, R-Calif., who represents a potential swing district in 2018, and is used to tough questions from reporters as the former head of the uber-political House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.


While a politician flipping off a reporter is shocking anywhere, Issa's crude gesture is all the more out of place and unexpected in Congress. Capitol Hill is one of the last places in Washington where reporters can roam relatively freely -- when lawmakers are moving from point A to point B, a credentialed reporter can just walk right up to them and ask them questions.

We should also add that the reporter he flipped off, Politico's Rachael Bade, is an absolute pro who has been stalking the halls of Congress for years.

I'd like to know more about the basis for saying "An F.B.I. agent’s contemporaneous notes are widely held up in court as credible evidence of conversations." I'm guessing that's a reference to the admissibility of the evidence as an exception to the hearsay rule (803(6)). The weight to be given the evidence depends on all of the circumstances. By the way, it's double hearsay, since we're asked not only to believe what Comey wrote but the unnamed individuals who told the NYT about the memo. The NYT has not seen a copy of the memo.

But let's assume the memo exists and says what you read quoted in the post title. How bad is it to say Flynn is a "good guy" and to express "hope" about the outcome? The headline has a pretty aggressive paraphrase of the quote. It reads: "Comey Memo Says Trump Asked Him to End Flynn Investigation."

The asking is at most only implicit in what is a declarative statement: "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go." That's just Trump revealing what he hopes for. There's no question at all, let alone any pressure or threat. And "see your way clear" is a delicate phrase. That's not saying do it my way. Go your way. And if your path is clear and it gets you to the outcome I hope for, then I will get what I want, but I'm assuming you will go where you see it clear.

"For this story, The Daily Beast spoke with nine current and former administration and law enforcement officials, most on the condition of anonymity so they could speak freely."

this is awesome. we are in an age where the media can print/broadcast whatever they want, simply attribute it to an anonymous source, and walk away.

modern journalism is now the equivalent of silently farting on a crowded elevator.

Putin Offers ‘Record’ of Trump’s Meeting With Russian Envoys
By ANDREW HIGGINS 1:28 PM ET
The Russian leader dismissed the furor in Washington over Mr. Trump’s sharing of sensitive intelligence as “nonsense and rubbish.”

Our leaker in chief strikes again.
