The day president Trump asked Comey, “If It’s possible, would you let me know, and am I under investigation?” His questioning demonstrates that he was acting guilty all the way.
The unlawful and unethical firing of Comey was due to the investigation into possible collusion between Trump campaign associates and Russians seeking to influence the 2016 election. He fired Comey while he was in the middle of an investigation of Russians connection with Trump’s campaign. Trump’s action is called an Obstruction of justice, and it only leads the way for impeachment.
When Trump discovered that Comey had “substantially dangerous and detrimental information”, he eliminated the person responsible for the investigation.
Comey, a man of honor and integrity, learned about his firing from media reports was insulting to him and the integrity of the FBI. “Trump’s actions and his continuous vicious tweets make him not fit to be the president of this great country. Trump tweet reminds me of what Plato (427-347 BC) said “Wise men speak because they have something to say; fools because they have to say something.” The latter applies perfectly to Trump.
Former acting attorney general Sally Yates, a true patriot, deserves the Medal of Honor for doing a heroic job by alerting the president about former national security advisor Michael Flynn misleading the vice president about his communications with the Russian Ambassador and his vulnerability to blackmail.
Flynn lying to the FBI is a felony, and lobbying and collecting money from Russia and Turkey for sneaking Futhullah Gulen out of the USA without legal extradition and without informing the state department is an act of treason. Flynn should have been put in jail immediately. The damage he caused to our national security is colossal.
At a meeting held in the oval office between Trump and the Russian Foreign Minister and The Ambassador; U.S. Journalist were not allowed to attend. Only Russian Journalists, Why? We have an insane clown in the White House acting like a Fascist instead of a president.
Democrats and Republicans owe the people of this great country impartial and independent inquiry to be headed by a special prosecutor to get to the bottom about any collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign and the obstruction of justice inquiry.
We need to make America “sane” again.
