Wow: Comey Memo Says Trump Asked Him to End Flynn Investigation

leave a comment »

This seems to me to suggest strongly that the FBI is going to find some incriminating (as in “criminal”) behavior, and Trump was desperate to head it off, which makes sense (given Trump’s obvious narcissism) only if stopping the investigation benefits Trump himself. I would guess that he is guilty (and knows it) of some serioous offenses.

If the GOP Congress continues to tie themselves to him, they are as stupid as I’ve often thought them to be.

Here’s the report.

From the report:

The White House has repeatedly crossed lines that other administrations have been reluctant to cross when discussing politically charged criminal investigations. Mr. Trump has disparaged the ongoing F.B.I. investigation as a hoax and called for an investigation into his political rivals. His representatives have taken the unusual step of declaring no need for a special prosecutor to investigate the president’s associates. [Which sounds to me like we need a special prosecutor stat. = LG]

The Oval Office meeting occurred a little more than two weeks after Mr. Trump summoned Mr. Comey to the White House for a lengthy, one-on-one dinner in the residence. At that dinner, on Jan. 27, Mr. Trump asked Mr. Comey at least two times for a pledge of loyalty — which Mr. Comey declined, according to one of Mr. Comey’s associates.
