Actually is been reported right now that if is true that Comey leaked classified memos he is now put in legal jeopardy.

He is doom.

Still the NY times is been asked to produce the memos, so far they have not been able to do so.

At the end legal experts are claiming that this so call memos are no in any way enough to claim obstruction of an investigation because at the time Flynn was cleared by the FBI and Comey from the Russia link.

Interesting.

NY times and the Washington Post are under scrutiny, they got themselves in crap.

It's not an opinion. Hillary lost every time she tried. I assure you it's real, no matter how much you try and hide from reality

Ok. But it's still fun watching the irony in real time. The drip drip of scandals and corruption. Bye healthcare, bye tax cuts for the rich.

Actually they would be tax cuts for all and cheaper healthcare for the majority.
I know it is fun for Democrats to watch the chaos they are creating, it emphasises their lack of any moral fibre.
Don't be surprised if come 2018 you are left wondering - again - why not enough people share your delight in what the Democrats are doing...

Actually she was dump by the same media that is now smearing Trump in order to prop Obama over her.

And people are looking at Russia for interference in elections, hell just look at how the Washington post and NY times played their sensationalism on her in order to get Obama as the presidential candidate when she ran against him in 2008.

How come nobody complaining about that one, if they loved Hillary soo much.

This democrat does not care about 2018 one way or the other. I think the GOP should fix this mess for the next 8 years. If democrats win, it will just be obstruction and stalemate again.

Your only hope of the change you seek is President Trump. I know you are too far gone to see that, though.

Soo, the NY times do not want to show the memos, but they are willing to read all their content to the people and more embellished if they are truth.

The intelligence committee asked them to release the memo, but they don't want too.

Love it.

Impeach the news media for bias, corruption, lies and encouraging dissent

Not that they don't want to... they can't.
They don't have them.
They admitted that they haven't even seen it.
They are relying on the word of someone.... someone that has no confirmed identity at this point.

If it is anything like all of the earlier 'stories', the memo doesn't even exist.

WAT? Trump asked Comey to let it go, after Flynn had been cleared? And they're trying to spin this as obstruction of justice?

If that's the case, Trump should file a massive libel lawsuit against the NY Times, because they either know, or should have known, that the story is being reported falsely.

More on the news, now Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin is saying that they have the power of subpoena and they may use it to get the memos.

This getting better and better.

He didnt have to order Comey for it to be improper. The mere suggestion of attempting to influence the investigation would be enough.


Incorrect.
For obstruction of justice to be claimed, the intent to corrupt the investigation has to be proven.


Impeachment though doesn't necessarily require criminality though. So even if his intent can't be proven legally, there's still enough to make an argument he is unfit. I don't expect partisan republicans to go along with it without some criminal charge though. But a criminal charge is not necessarily required.


Impeachment would require lawmakers to believe that Trump tried to obstruct justice in this case. If any such impeachment hearing was brought, there would need to be some clear evidence to convict. Much more than a memo will be required.

Nixon actually refused a subpoena for the full tapes. Clinton was proven to have lied under oath.

Your idea of 'enough' simply isn't enough. Think about the consequences of bringing an impeachment trial based on what someone wrote. Any President would then be dancing on egg shells in any meeting with his staff, worried that one of them would just make something up and put it in an official memo. Worse, a member of the cabinet could be bribed (or blackmailed) into writing memo's alleging anything they wanted. ALL the President's power would be effectively removed with an easy method for just a handful of people to get rid of him. Think things through before jumping on the propaganda train.


None of that is plausible.

Presidents wouldn't be afraid to talk because most of them know the deal. And they engender trust and faith from their staff, unlike this guy. It's Trump that's oblivious and thinks trying to get the FBI director to shut down investigations is a good idea.

Your theory seems based around the premise that Comey made up this memo, which is highly dubious.

And you're talking about cabinet members being bribed or blackmailed like that's a thing outside of Michael Flynn.

Any President wouldnt be worried about any of this, just this clown.

When the Russia investigation finishes up (whenever that is), I'm confident there will be plenty to take this guy down. Because by then, there'll surely be another dozen scandals or episodes of misconduct he will have gotten himself into. Just keep giving him rope.

Then even Trump sycophants will they up their hands and tap out.

Well it goes to tradition on the hill.
They even have a term for it, memcon. Memorandum of a conversation.
Comeys reputation comes into play here.
He didn't just show up on Washington's door step last year or anything.
Trump on the other hand has a reputation of being a liar. You can't believe anything he says.

Flynn wasn't cleared in the broader investigation of the Trump campaign though.

And why would Flynn request immunity if he wasnt still under some sort of investigation?

Not to mention, if what you say is true and Flynn was not under investigation still, Congress wouldn't need to see the memo because it would automatically be bogus just based on the logic that he was already cleared.
