QOTY: Trump

QOTY: Trump


by digby


This is just a little reminder of one of the more astonishing events of this astonishing time.


"I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job," Trump told the Russian foreign minister and U.S. ambassador on May 10 during an Oval Office meeting, according to a transcript of the meeting read to The Times by a U.S. official. "I faced great pressure because of Russia. That's taken off."

And then he added, "tell Vlad we're in the clear..." 

Ok, I made up that last part. 

Remember, this happened the day after he fired Comey. And they kept the meeting a secret only Russian photographers and press were allowed in. And they stabbed Trump in the back when they released the pictures on the internet and late withdrew them:

Oh, and then he gave Kislyak and Lavrov classified information.

All that happened. Just saying.

Update:
Brian Beutler takes a look at Mike Pence's deep involvement in these events.
