Trump Tweets: Comey, Cohen, Times, and More Oh My!

May 9th, 2017 James Comey is fired as FBI Director.

May 11th, 2017 President Trump is interviewed by Lester Holt and asked about the firing of James Comey,

“In fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story,”

For more on the Lester Holt interview MSNBC or watch the full interview @ Lester Holt NBC.

May 11th, 2017 a report appeared in the New York Times the headline, “In a Private Dinner, Trump Demanded Loyalty. Comey Demurred.” This headline as we’ve have now learned is in reference to the now public memos that Comey wrote after each private meeting with President Trump.

For a full breakdown of the memos @ The News Blender, as a reminder, the Comey memos that were leaked, were leaked only forty minutes or so after the FBI sent them to Congress and have been out of Comey’s personal possession since last summer.

May 17th, from The Hill, Deputy Attorney Rod Rosenstein appoints Special Counsel for FBI director Robert Mueller to investigate Russia’s involvement in the U.S. election.

Maggie Haberman full bio @ New York Times,

She joined The New York Times in February 2015 as a campaign correspondent and was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize in 2018 for national reporting on Donald Trump team’s connections with Russia.

This series of President Trump tweets is in response to a New York Times article suggesting that Trump has largely been abusive to one Michael Cohen, Trump’s private lawyer and self pro-claimed ‘Fixer.’

The drunk/drugged up loser, according to a tweet from Maggie Haberman, is Sam Nunberg a one time President Trump campaign aide. Both he and Roger Stone are named as sources in the New York Time’s piece linked above.

But wait there’s more…

According to a report by The News Blender,

Donald Trump is not named as a defendant in the complaint, but his son, Donnie Jr, and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, are.

Jack Johnson was the first Black heavy weight champion who was convicted in 1913 for violating the Mann Act of 1910. Jack Johnson died in 1946.

At the end of February Washington Post reported,

Behind the scenes, Trump has derisively referred to Sessions as “Mr. Magoo,” a cartoon character who is elderly, myopic and bumbling, according to people with whom he has spoken. Trump has told associates that he has hired the best lawyers for his entire life, but is stuck with Sessions, who is not defending him and is not sufficiently loyal.
