How so? The Deputy AG appointed Mueler, and the Deputy AG is the one who gives the waiver or not. If he doesn't give Mueller a waiver, then Meuller is obstructed and can't effectively do the job he was appointed to. That's obstruction of justice.

An actual named source..the russian foreign minister Lavrov denies talking to Trump about Comey.

Cnn is reporting this, and remember the Russians have even offered transcripts of the meeting.

Apparently it was FAKE NEWS after all. Hmmm

Another unsourced story,


it's the official record of the meeting.

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?
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.


Yes...Now the press is making up issued statements from Sean Spicer?

How badly do you plan on abusing your reasoning centers in this defense?
Looks to me like the press is making up a non-statement. That's pretty funny. Anyone can say the press secretary didn't dispute something therefore it must be true. I'm lmao on this.

You don't get it. Sean Spicer was asked to comment of the conversation. He did not deny the conversation took place. He tried to explain what Trump really meant by those words. He then chastised whoever leaked the "highly classified" conversation.

It appears that Trump really did say it.

Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, did not dispute the account. In a statement, he said that Mr. Comey had put unnecessary pressure on the president’s ability to conduct diplomacy with Russia on matters such as Syria, Ukraine and the Islamic State. “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.”


Its all good - whats the big deal? They were able to continue negotiations with the Russians. That is looking after American interests.


Why do you assume that secretly dealing with one of America's enemies would be "looking after American interests?" Trump's biography suggests he has never looked after anyone's interests but his own. The Russia scandal has, ironically, caused everyone to forget about his bogus charity foundation! The IRS needs to reopen that can of worms.
The Russian "scandal" is completely manufactured by elitist cabal members. Establishment GOP just going along with it because they are also part of it. Remember the CFR have been running things at least since Carter. People really need to get a clue about it.

Keyword "appears"..... because you trump haters really want this to be true.

It "appears" that Sean Spicer believes it to be true, because he explained to everyone exactly what Trump really meant by those words.

So you accept Spicers words to conclude that the conversation did take place, but don't accept his summary of what Trump was actually talking about, instead deciding your own narrative to fit with your attacks on your President?

You may have a problem with your bias.

Reporters..."Elitist Cabal Members"??

Trump Russia collusion...Ridiculous conspiracy theory created by "elitist cabal members"?

How does that get cognitively reconciled?

Spicer didn't dispute what Trump said.

He just provided spin on what Trump was thinking when those words came out.

An official transcript of the meeting is credible..Spicer did not disagree with what was reported.

Sean Spicer's explanation of "what Trump really meant.." is ridiculously not-credible.
Spicer has no credibility in explaining Trump's thinking. Trump himself regularly debunks his spokesperson.

Correct. Spicer is attempting to mansplain to us what we read with our own eyes.

And this...


My money still on Kushner...


Besides the leak specified "Advisor" close to Trump..





The White House also has acknowledged that Kushner met with Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States, in late November. Kushner also has acknowledged that he met with the head of a Russian development bank, Vnesheconombank, which has been under U.S. sanctions since July 2014. The president’s son-in-law initially omitted contacts with foreign leaders from a national security questionnaire, though his lawyer has said publicly he submitted the form prematurely and informed the FBI soon after that he would provide an update.

Vnesheconombank handles development for the state, and in early 2015, a man purporting to be one of its New York-based employees was arrested and accused of being an unregistered spy.
That man — Evgeny Buryakov — ultimately pleaded guilty and was eventually deported. He had been in contact with former Trump adviser Carter Page, though Page has said he shared only “basic immaterial information and publicly available research documents” with the Russian.

So what? Its not a crime to end and investigation.

Yes it is in fact it's an impeachable offense.


Wait even when the investigation yielded zero results so far and looks like a endless money pit? The US had hearings like crazy and not one government official presented any evidence since day one.


You must be a leaker, since you know what the ongoing investigation has and doesn't have.

And you don't find it suspicious at all that Russia
even cares if we've gotten it right or wrong in our own press? Why would they even bring it up? Why are they so quick to come to the defense of President Trump, but not any other Presidents in my recent memory for actions taken in the press unfavorable to them?

So a spy and the Russian government are who we're trusting now? The Russians could hand over a transcript and we're supposed to take it at face value. The Russians would never screw with us to cause more political mayhem and chaos, right.....right?

I think Spicer, or one of Spicers assistants is the source of the leaks. They're in a position to know all this stuff, possibly has a conscience and wants to tell the truth, and would have professional motive considering how often Trump contradicts him.

I just don't think it's Kushner, aside from going against Trump, he would be putting his marriage at risk. Plus, the Trump family has been very good to him.

Then thats the AGs fault. It was his duty to appoint someone himself.

This is why I didn't necessarily jump on the 'its Kushner' bandwagon....he's got SO much to lose and they (the Trumps) have been ridiculously generous to him that it would be extremely unwise for him to do that.
