U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday. In that testimony Sessions claimed he wasn’t asserting Executive Privilege when he refused to answer questions that dealt with the existence of any conversations he and Donald Trump might have had about Russia and James Comey, FBI Director. Sessions claimed he couldn’t talk about anything about which the President might wish to exert a privilege, himself, at a later date.
In many respects, even as Attorney General Jeff Sessions faces the US Senate Intelligence Committee today, the future of the Donald Trump administration comes down to down to Donald Trump vs. James Comey. the battle of lies, veracity and credibility. The question, the ultimate inquiry, with whom do you believe?
It’s rare to see a duel between truth and falsity play out as dramatically as it is in the ethics war
between the ex-FBI Director, James Comey, and the President, Donald Trump. Publically, each has called the other a bald faced liar. These aren’t the Aesop’s Fables your mother read at bedtime; not about the home run you never hit; or, the imaginary date with someone you never knew. This is hardcore, visceral stuff, the type that causes empires to fall and heroes to be found amongst ordinary men and women. It’s, also, the stuff of irony.
Close your eyes and just imagine:
A Reporter asks President Donald Trump during a press conference whether he will let the public know if he has a recording of his conversations with Jim Comey, former Director of the FBI.
There’s an old phrase that “a request from a superior is actually a command.” That was the essence of ex-FBI Director James Comey’s take on President Donald Trump’s expression of hope that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn be left alone because he was “a good guy.” Flynn is not, but that’s not the point.
Cloud over the administration, growing cancer on your administration.
The twain has met.
According to the testimony of the former FBI Director Jim Comey today, President Donald Trump has stated his administration is under a cloud. During Watergate, Richard Nixon was told by his counsel John Dean that the then-president’s administration has struck with a deadly disease, cancer.
The President invented a new word the other day. So, what have we learned about "Covfefe?" (1) Trump is incoherent in the morning without caffeine; (2) he can't spell coffee; and, (3) he has trouble hitting the keys on his phone with fingers stressed from grasping golf clubs, and other people's hands in power handshakes.
If the New York Times article today is to be believed, it’s another huge nail in Donald Trump’s presidential coffin.
By now, everybody probably has an opinion whether the President obstructed justice.
During the campaign President Donald Trump posed the question, “Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a better relationship with Russia?” Who would’ve thought Trump’s concept of a better relationship was to share our most highly classified information with that country? The way things are going the Russian mission might as well move into the West Wing of the White House.
It has been six months since the political world was rocked to its core with the upset election of Donald Trump as President. One person who has not gotten over Trump’s victory is his opponent, Hillary Clinton.
