Donald Trump Jr. implies the Comey memo is true

On Wednesday, Donald Trump Jr. relied on the wise words of Fox News personality and attorney Geraldo Rivera to defend his dad amid the latest White House scandal. Trump retweeted Rivera’s post explaining that the president was only pushing former FBI Director James Comey to let go of the investigation into ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn because Flynn is a “good man.”

Trump captioned Rivera’s “News Flash” with a single, stark word:

 

Trump’s tweet seems to imply that the contents of Comey’s memo detailing the Flynn exchange are true. Reports of the memo suggest President Trump told Comey that Flynn “is a good guy,” and so he hoped Comey could “let this go.”

Does anybody else think that Jr is under the impression that, as Donald Trump’s eldest son, he will ascend to the Presidency if Trump Sr. is removed?

  1. I just saw Rep. Kinzinger (R-IL) on CNN calling for an independent investigation from “an outside group”, “outside of politics”…

    I don’t know, sounds like a good idea actually. Some sort of bureau. A federal bureau, perhaps. Maybe one tasked with investigating?

Somebody fetch me an XXL serving of popcorn pls

According to The Hill, the Senate Intelligence Committee sent a request to former FBI Director James Comey to testify in public regarding the probe into the White House’s alleged ties to foreign governments.

The letter was sent by Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) and ranking member Mark Warner (D-VA) this Wednesday and also asks Comey to participate in a closed-door session. Although they haven’t yet received a response, committee members are “optimistic” that Comey will testify.

“I hope he’ll accept our invitation. I believe he will,” Warner reportedly said.

Comey Memo Says Trump Asked Him to End Flynn Investigation

WASHINGTON — President Trump asked the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, to shut down the federal investigation into Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, in an Oval Office meeting in February, according to a memo Mr. Comey wrote shortly after the meeting.

“I hope you can let this go,” the president told Mr. Comey, according to the memo.

The existence of Mr. Trump’s request is the clearest evidence that the president has tried to directly influence the Justice Department and F.B.I. investigation into links between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia.

Mr. Comey wrote the memo detailing his conversation with the president immediately after the meeting, which took place the day after Mr. Flynn resigned, according to two people who read the memo. The memo was part of a paper trail Mr. Comey created documenting what he perceived as the president’s improper efforts to influence a continuing investigation. An F.B.I. agent’s contemporaneous notes are widely held up in court as credible evidence of conversations.

Mr. Comey shared the existence of the memo with senior F.B.I. officials and close associates. The New York Times has not viewed a copy of the memo, which is unclassified, but one of Mr. Comey’s associates read parts of the memo to a Times reporter.

“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” Mr. Trump told Mr. Comey, according to the memo. “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”

  1. Well, remember that time Obama summoned Chaffetz and Gowdy to the Oval Office and told them, “Hillary’s a good woman, I hope you’ll let her go, let go of this Benghazi thing”? And the Republicans all agreed that nothing was improper about that and it was well within a President’s prerogative to make requests like that? Remember?!

  2. you mean to tell me a career lawyer/attorney general with decades of experience is able to politically outmaneuver an illiterate real estate ‘mogul’?

    well that’s pretty surprising.

  3. Interesting. The mob boss shows gratifying loyalty to his consigliere. After all, the boss has completely clean hands, no?
