You can't possibly keep missing this. You are obviously avoiding acknowledging that you were spreading lies:

I don't get it...does it matter why he fired him? He can fire him for any reason other than race, gender, sexual orientation, etc...

I guess I am not seeing why it even matters and is worth probing.


He can fire the Director of FBI for any reason?...Sure..Though the only other time it was done, the Dir. was using tax payer funds for home improvement and lied on tax returns etc.

Obstructing or attempting to obstruct Justice is illegal...

Where those two actions intersect is what got Nixon impeached following the Saturday Night Massacre where Nixon fired his AG and Deputy AG when they refused to fire the Special Prosecutor investigating him.

Interesting Side Note:
Trump Friend/advisor/subject of FBI investigation...Roger Stone was a Nixon Advisor and loyalist. He even got a picture of Nixon Tattooed on his back after the scandal..




The ardently Democrat acting Director of the FBI just testified to Congress that the Bureau's investigation into Trump/Russia will not be impacted in any way by Comey being fired. He further testified that no special prosecutor is needed.

Narrative busted.



What narrative? And how was it "busted"?

Confused by your posts..


Lol so now you're gonna play dumb? Your pretending you don't know what I mean is pathetic and childish. The narrative that Trump fired Comey to obstruct the investigation is false and you know it's false yet you still continue to dishonestly insinuate it. Stop lying.

Ah, so you are saying he was perhaps attempting to obstruct justice. But the FBI would still be investigating, even with Comey gone though? So that seems a huge stretch to me.

It wasn't Comey doing the investigating, it's the FBI.


That is certainly an argument being sold...But where does that end? As long as the FBI has one agent assigned to the case he can fire away?

If clear intent to impede the investigation by removing the Head of the FBI is demonstrated?

Is the argument that the head of the FBI is irrelevant to the FBI's work? Or does "obstruction of justice" only stick when it is proven successful? Attempted murder?

I would argue that anyone convicted of "Obstruction of Justice"...was obviously unsuccessful given their conviction.

So the defense that the FBI is still investigating is irrelevant.


It was just testified to Congress that no one has been removed from the investigation. Stop making things up.


You should Google the name James Comey?


He wasn't the investigating agent. The dozens of agents who actually were doing the investigation are still doing it. That was just confirmed to Congress in public. Keep it up with the false narrative though. It's sad.

What's sad/comical is watching the WH narrative fall apart on an almost hourly basis.

Spicy suggested this was all on Rosenstein.
Sounds like Rosenstein wasn't too happy about that.

I can't begin to imagine what the minimum threshold for obtuseness must be to work there...


So Rosenstein is mad that the letter he wrote recommending Comey be fired resulted in Comey being fired?

Cool story bro.


He's mad that he's taking the blame when trump TOLD HIM to write the letter. He's threatened to quit.


You literally just posted fake news. If you do it again you're knowingly spreading lies. Don't spread lies.
DOJ confirms Rosenstein did NOT threaten to resign.

Yeah, okay. Let's believe an anonymous source once again. Prime example of fake news right here.

Says right in the article Justice denied that report. The report continues to cite an unnamed source. The 2nd paragraph begins with "Mr. Rosenstein left the impression that..."

Factually refuted by DOJ. Sorry. Stop spreading lies. Period.

From your own source -


Justice Department spokesman Ian Prior Thursday denied reports that Mr. Rosenstein had threatened to quit over the White House depiction of the events leading up to Mr. Comey’s dismissal.


Next time read your entire source article before making false claims and telling others they are wrong.

Straight from the horse's mouth:

Deputy AG Rosenstein: 'I'm not quitting,' didn't threaten to quit over Comey firing

Of course, we could choose to believe unnamed anonymous sources instead, but that's not, in my opinion, a path to enlightenment.

The man himself has addressed this, in addition to the DOJ.

If Rosenstein says that the story is wrong, how can you argue with that?

It really doesn't matter how many different media outlets continue to run this fake news, it is still fake news.

What you need to do is consider not believing what they say any longer.

And I humbly admitted my error in front of the whole class. Bare assed and everything. I took my lumps and I apologized.
You want another crack at me have at it. It makes you feel superior.
But just so we are clear. Being wrong about something doesn't make me wrong about everything.
Have a nice day.

Sillyolme is obviously too attached to his agenda to stop lying. There really needs to be some rules against this. Spreading theories is one thing, even the baseless theories being pushed in this thread, that's just speculation, but spreading blatant lies that have been proven incorrect?

An interesting admission from Sanders in this afternoon's briefing:

"We want this to come to its conclusion, we want it to come to its conclusion with integrity," said deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders, referring to the FBI's probe into Moscow's interference in last year's election. "And we think that we've actually, by removing Director Comey, taken steps to make that happen."

Certainly we know that the investigation continues today. It hasn't stopped.
I'm just curious why they think removing Comey will bring the investigation to a conclusion with integrity.
Not trying to read anything into this. It just has an odd ring to it.

McCabe quashes trumps claim that Comey had lost the confidence of the bureau. Says Comey is held in the highest regard by himself and the department.



That's shows you how partisan the FBI has become and McCabe has to go too.

And I love how comey says he "believes" the prez can fire him.

Too funny.

That was based on a walking mumble answer at best...I'd like to see the "horse" talk to someone and answer clearly..

If there was anything nefarious to it, what exactly would be her motivations for saying that? Seems obvious to me she means that with his ineffective and disruptive leadership removed, maybe they can finish the investigation quicker.

DOJ spokesman said he didn't threaten to resign. He's the Deputy AG, the 2nd highest person in DOJ. If the spokesman, one of his underlings, put out a statement on his behalf that wasn't accurate, don't you think he'd have addressed it by now? DOJ, and the man himself, versus an anonymous source. Time for a reality check. Step away from the altar.

Well, you were wrong about the "my garbage comments are well-researched" thing, too.

And I went very easy on you when I caught your fake claim about someone dying from PG. So your claim about me having ANOTHER crack at you can just be piled on your lengthy fake claims list. Others in that thread were no where near as kind as me about it. You had no choice but to be *cough* humble and admit you were full of it.

Then you had to pull your "don't dump garbage" crap on me. You get what you give.

Lots of statements coming from the Whitehouse today.
All of it conflicting.
Spin the spinner...left hand red.
Spin again right foot yellow.
It's a regular game of twister.

No one is claiming the White House is good at messaging. However, no matter how bad they are at messaging, it doesn't change the fact that Rosenstein didn't threaten to resign, Comey was fired for legitimate reasons, and the firing results in NO interference in the Trump/Russia investigation, as testified today by the acting-Director to Congress. Just don't spread lies, and you'll have no problems.
