WASHINGTON — President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office this month that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved “great pressure” on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting.
“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”



This is the official account, that even Sean Spicer decided not to dispute.

These are the actions of a man looking out for American interests? Denigrating our Officials in front of the Russians? Giving them further pause to trust us at all?

Madness....just madness

You beat me by a millisecond on the thread


Before anyone screams fake news..




The White House document that contained Mr. Trump’s comments was based on notes taken from inside the Oval Office and has been circulated as the official account of the meeting.


Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, did not dispute the account.

Another unsourced story, using the same trick of have the alleged source read the alleged document over the phone, so the Times doesn't have to provide said document.

It's madness, all right. but not on Trump's part.

Spicer response.



“By grandstanding and politicizing the investigation into Russia’s actions, James Comey created unnecessary pressure on our ability to engage and negotiate with Russia,” Mr. Spicer said. “The investigation would have always continued, and obviously, the termination of Comey would not have ended it. Once again, the real story is that our national security has been undermined by the leaking of private and highly classified conversations.”

The day after Comey is fired...

The same meeting he shared Classified Intelligence from Israel with the Russians..

The same meeting where American Reporters were barred, but Russian State Media took pictures and posted them.

A meeting with Kisylak, the same guy that Flynn got fired for having secret conversations with and the same guy the IC describes as Russia's top spy recruiter.

“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,”
“I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”
“I’m not under investigation.”

This is official record...Special Counsel Mueller has the docs...And the DOJ Inspector General who has been asked to look into the Comey firing has the docs.

Spicer has acknowledged it's accurate.

If you actually read the OP or first post before your allergic, programmed Trump Defense of "Fake News" you might have realized that?

See second post in thread.
You could of added a bit more color to that by saying that Spicer is waiting for the OK from the Russians to discuss it further .

And you have proof of that or did they just say that Sean Spicer did not dispute it therefore they don't have to provide a record of anything.

How about you guys tell us what you wanted him to say and make it easier for the rest of us.

Maybe Spicer said nothing because there is a special counsel and at this point anything anyone says connected to Russia could become ammunition, so it's better to keep mouths shut until they have spoken to the counsel?

1) Comey is a nut job.

2) This fake Russian witch hunt was and is affecting international diplomacy/relations and the ability to get deals done.

Well they both have access to the official accounting of the meeting and both SC Mueller and DOJ IG have been asked to review the Comey firing.

???

What scenario are you imagining ?
