    Ample reasons existed to worry about this president, and to ponder the extraordinary remedy of impeachment, even before he fired FBI Director James B. Comey and shockingly admitted on national television that the action was provoked by the FBI’s intensifying investigation into his campaign’s ties with Russia.
    Mr. Trump said on Thursday that he had not relied solely on the advice from the Justice Department’s top two leaders in making his decision. And, for the first time, he explicitly referenced the F.B.I.’s investigation into his administration’s ties to Russia in defending Mr. Comey’s firing.

    “And in fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said, ‘You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story,’” Mr. Trump told Lester Holt of NBC News. “It’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won.”

    Liberals should be happy Comey got fired. He wrecked Hillary's chances to be President.

    Yes, yes, we've heard that talking point repeatedly. We're bothered by the timing and the reasons and the disrespect Comey was treated with.

    before anyone responds I'd like to make a modest request.

    Imagine if you can if Trump's last name was Clinton.

    I pose this question and request an honest answer.

    We don't have to ask. A president with the last name Clinton did the exact same thing.


    If Hillary Clinton had asked Comey to stay on. Then waited until after an investigation into her administration was just starting to get going to fire him, what would your reaction be?

    Safe to say that even most HRC fans would want to get to the bottom of it.

    It's time.

    It's long past time this be said.
    We've already heard about it from all directions. There's simply no winning with this scenario. Democrats had called for Comey's resignation for months declaring that he had cost Clinton the election with his actions. Trump keeping him on was seen as rewarding him for assisting him. Democrats had expressed a complete lack of confidence in Comey and the Assistant AG had recommended Comey be fired due to his actions.

    So if Trump keeps him, he is rewarding the man who helped him get elected related to the the Clinton email server. If he fires him then of course he is covering up for Russia. There's no way to win in conspiracy land.

    Trump supporters make other American's sick

    Everything...everything they don't agree with they label as "fake news". They seems to have more of a problem with people criticizing Trump than they do with the possibly that Russia interfered with our election. In fact, they appear to have more of an affinity with Russia than their own fellow American's. Especially if those American's happen to be liberals.

    That was all well and good before now.
    I can remember when Democrats declared that associating disagreement with being unAmerican was terrible. I guess that old chestnut has fallen by the wayside. Likewise if your fears of foreign influence are so large then how could you ever recommend a vote for Clinton? Her Foundation was nothing more than a gigantic slush fund. Her six figure "speechs" were nothing more than bribes being paid by big business and foreign governments.

    Also some of us are old enough to remember things like this.


    But now, our president has gone on television and admitted to what could well be obstruction of justice. Something that no American should condone. Yet, Trump supporters , once again, call it "fake news". Even though, it came from Trump's own mouth. Trump boldly proclaimed ,right to your face, that he fired Comey to shut down the investigation into his administration. He told the world that.

    Now the world is looking at America to be the shining example on the hill we profess to be. Yet, we have cowardly traitors in Congress instead. Who refuse to put country before party. Who wouldn't be acting that way if they didn't know that low information voters just don't care. As long as their party is in control in DC. It's a crying shame how far the part of Lincoln and Reagan has fallen.
    Have then fallen so low they've lost a 1,000 federal and state level seats across the last three cycles? Oh no that would be the Democratic Party with their terrible identity politics which they keep using because they are the very racists, sexists and phobes they claim to deplore. Instead of investigating why they lose they just keep screaming "demographics" and go on to the next round of losses.

    As for the "admission" it is clear people hear what they want to hear. The Trump hate bends their very ability to perceive reality properly.

    Trump admitted that it was the Russia investigation that provoked him to fire Comey.
