"Who's going to give back the young and handsome lives (and others) that have been devastated and destroyed by the phony Russia Collusion Witch Hunt?" Trump tweeted on May 20.
The FBI at the time was investigating whether anyone in Trump's campaign worked with Russian Federation to help tip the election in Trump's favor.
"The FBI has rules and protocols on when they decide to do things like that". After those meetings, none of the Republicans who attended had much of anything to say; Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said only that nothing he learned surprised him.
Also raising eyebrows was the fact that Trump Chief of Staff John Kelly and Trump's lawyer Emmet Flood also attended the meetings - the first one at the Department of Justice with Nunes and Gowdy and the second one on Capitol Hill with a bipartisan group of congressional leaders.
The more doubt Trump can cast about the DOJ's motives, the easier it will be to dismiss or downplay the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller. Giuliani said it would be appropriate for Trump to be briefed about the findings.
"To my knowledge, the Democrats have not requested that information, so I would refer you back to them on why they would consider themselves randomly invited to see something they've never asked to", Sanders said Tuesday. We can't trust anything they say! The president's fine with it.
US President Donald Trump took fresh aim on Thursday (Friday NZ Time) at former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, writing on Twitter that the man he fired past year was "a awful and corrupt leader who inflicted great pain" on his agency. And, the President of the United States doing so - repeatedly - is something that would have been hard to imagine prior to Trump's arrival on the political scene. "I don't. I did when it came in".
And DiGenova insists President Obama knew about the monitoring and infiltration of the Trump campaign since early January 2017. As the Justice Department investigates, politicians and pundits on the left and right are weighing in.
Listening to Trump drone on repeatedly that Mueller's investigation of Russia's efforts to discredit democracy is a "witch hunt", the biggest in history - forget Salem, millions of Americans tell pollsters the "witch hunt" in Washington must end. Top congressional Democrats have argued that Republicans want to use the information to undermine the Russian Federation investigation.
How many times do we have to go through this charade? 'Facts matter. The FBI's use of Confidential Human Sources (the actual term) is tightly regulated and essential to protecting the country, ' Comey tweeted.
We keep letting Trump push us into this inane cycle where his fevered imaginings produce blanket media coverage and even government action. The Washington Post, the New York Times, the Associated Press, Politico and Bloomberg, among others, say they will not call it that on their own. Previously he said a decision wouldn't be made until after the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, scheduled for June 12 in Singapore.
Besides the general "Trump is a superhero" rhetoric coming from the anonymous QAnon, the lost souls who follow every word of this account, nearly as if it's god himself coming to speak to them, also believe that Clinton and Obama were covering up child sex rings, and that the Las Vegas massacre was an inside job connected to a cabal led by the Saudis and Hillary Clinton.
Everyone who works in the Trump administration gets tarnished.
