NYT: Trump Told Russians That He Just Fired ‘Nut Job’ Comey

Maggie Haberman from the NYT is out with yet another leak, regarding the meeting between Trump and the Russian foreign minister and ambassador. If true, I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand, we know Trump is a shit-talker and men tend to say inappropriate things in private. On the other, under no circumstances should the President of the United States impugn the former head of the FBI in front of foreign agents.

The positive aspect of acting like a shit-talking pavement ape is that it scares people — the old ‘Crazy Nixon’ routine. If people are scared of Trump, because of his changeability, then they’re less likely to fuck with him. Even still, this isn’t exactly “presidential” decorum, certainly not befitting for the highest office in the world.

Obviously, we must impeach now.

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.”

Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.”

The conversation, during a May 10 meeting — the day after he fired Mr. Comey — reinforces the notion that Mr. Trump dismissed him primarily because of the bureau’s investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian operatives. Mr. Trump said as much in one televised interview, but the White House has offered changing justifications for the firing.

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. One official read quotations to The Times, and a second official confirmed the broad outlines of the discussion.

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.”

This is getting tedious, but who are these officials leaking to left wing newspapers? Does it matter? Should we embrace the transparency, just like we embraced the Podesta emails? If you were delighted over the Podesta leaks, then you cannot be pissed over these leaks, and vice versa. It’s part of the discussion now — a new era of neo-transparency and direct democracy.

    These leaks are fake news stories. Is it wrong to call someone a Nut Job who is indeed a Nut Job?

    As with Podesta, if he said it let POTUS deal with it. Leaks aren’t good but don’t blame leaker when you say something stupid.

      If he does get in ‘real trouble’, he’d only have himself to blame.

        It’s not his fault. The guy is deranged. Has no judgement at all and appears to have memory problems too. Emperor has no clothes.

        In the past when people saw an insane person, they would think he needed treatment, maybe needed to be in a mental hospital if his craziness was bad enough. Nowadays, people see such a person and say “Let’s have him rage and rant and rave on the TV so we can make money off of him” like Alex Jones.

        Or “He should run for president. Lots of idiots will vote for a crazy person because he’s so politically incorrect. And if he’s hostile and angry too, that’s a plus, because angry voters like angry politicians. ”

        If Trump were not rich, and were not president, he would have been in jail or in a mental hospital a long time ago.

        Lots of people suck up to everyone with power and money, whether they are deranged or not.

        Power and money can cover up insanity. But not when you’re president. Because that’s like being a goldfish, living in a glass bowl. Lots of people, many of whom are not suck ups, will see your insanity and will report it in the newspapers and on TV.

    I have to agree with this post, this is the first real unpresidential thing he’s said and done. Game changer.

      Hey, no offense, but are you serious? Do you mean since taking office? Because he said a helluva lot of “real unpresidential” stuff as a candidate. Let alone before that.

        Ironturd does a parody of Ironbird. I think he must have meant that sarcastically.

    I’m all for transparency but comparing Podesta and this is apples and oranges. There were no questions who said what and in what context with Podesta. You can’t say that with the Trump leaks. Unless of course you’re willing to believe an “unnamed source with connections to the intelligence community.”

      Is that so? Then how did emails about backyard pool parties get turned into allegations of pederasty? Not only was context ignored, there was a lot of straining to come the very most sinister interpretation possible.

      And, from what I’ve read the White House is not denying what was said. That unamed source is being attacked for leaking (as they should be) not for lying.

    What if Trump is the one doing the leaking? Mind blown!

    He leaks like the senior that he is, creates his own establishment “drain the swamp” hunt, then stomps out the baizou and sets up a government for the people…. or goes Erdogen.
