    Anderson Cooper is a funny dude... You can tell he really loves interviewing Kellyanne Conway:



    The full interview:

    "If there is one thing I am, it's always right." -Ted Nugent.
    "I honestly believe saying someone is a smart lawyer is damning with faint praise. The smartest people become engineers and scientists." -SU.
    "I never preached in Texas, but I have preached in places as wicked..." -Brigham Young.
    "If we do nothing we'll be substantially behind (other Power leagues) a decade from now." -Bob Bowlsby on Big 12 expansion.
    GIVE 'EM HELL, BRIGHAM!

    I thought Drumpf wasn't under investigation. It seems that drumpf makes that very clear in his letter to Comey. If drumpf was under investigation then I am not sure he could have fired Comey.

    Good thing Trump in his Republican convention nomination speech promised he will always tell the truth. I might be doubting his word otherwise. But when he said that at the convention, I was sold. The man cannot lie. Still, if he said it was four or five or six times that Comey assured him, instead of just three times, it would help it sound more credible.

    This letter is bizarre. Trump knows this letter would be published, so he puts in the second paragraph. It's like in movies where the writers add really clunky and unnecessary information as part of the exposition in order to get the audience up to speed. Except in this case Trump is just full of shit and knows lots of dummies would buy his little version of things, even though they're demonstrably false. *edit* Kelly Ann Conway brought this up to Anderson Cooper as dispositive proof that the firing wasn't a move to encumber the Russian ties investigation.

    A clarification by the honorable congresswoman Maxine Waters... She would recommendation firing Comey only if Hillary Clinton were president:

    Good thing Trump is putting this controversy behind him by keeping US press out of his meeting with Russian officials but letting Russian media in.

    Hey, if he's going to let the media in, it ought to be the media he trusts. Welcome Sergei and Vladimir! I love that story you did last week on my lack of ties to Russian oligarchs!

    It will only be convincing if he includes a lot of superlatives in it and writes it at a 4th grade level.

    I was skeptical, but reading that it will be certified removes any doubt on my part.

    McCabe also told senators today that the firing of Comey has not affected his agency's investigation into whether associates of President Trump colluded with Russian officials to influence last year's presidential election, and he promised to speak up if there is any effort by the White House to impede the wide-ranging probe.

    [...]

    McCabe challenged reports that Comey requested additional resources


    During today's hearing, McCabe challenged reports that Comey had requested additional resources for the Russia investigation just before being fired.


    "I'm not aware of that request, and it's not consistent with my understanding of how we request additional resources," McCabe said. "We don't typically request resources for an individual case. And ... I strongly believe that the Russia investigation is adequately resourced."

    See Frank, there is nothing to worry about... everything is fine at the FBI. If Drumpf is trying to cover something up I am sure Barack would have leaked something to us before he left office. The Bro wouldn't have left us hanging.

    Ole Rand is full of shit there. This firing had zero to do with Clinton and the emails. He sure didn't a shit about all that when it happened. Nowadays, you can count on Rand to talk out his ass, as much as any politician. He keeps circling the wagon like a dutiful GOP member.

    I haven't listened to all of McCabe's testimony, but I plan to. It seems he did do a lot of contradicting Trump's bs on Comey.

    So which democrat should we believe? And I assume you will point us to one that did not want to fire Comey after the letter or who agrees with the firing now?

    If you guys are incapable of understanding how a congressperson who was pissed at Comey and wanted him sacked after the note to Chaffetz, could now be alarmed and horrified that Trump fired him under the fake pretense of caring about his handling of the Hillary investigation, I don't know what the fuck to tell you.

    As a libertarian I think he's completely sold out to Trumpism. It's pretty pathetic. I don't think his dad is amused.

    So in typical Trump fashion, he trots all his people in front of the cameras to tell the story that Comey was fired only after the deputy AG made the recommendation and that is was because of how he handled the Clinton emails months ago. Then when that gets criticized, Trump cuts the legs out from under all his people and tells Lester Holt instead that really he had planned to fire Comey already and the deputy AG's recommendation had nothing to do with it. And the real reason wasn't the Clinton thing, but because he was just doing a bad job and everyone he worked with hated him -- a charge the new acting FBI director immediately said was garbage. Then he gets even more ridiculous despite months of saying either there isn't any kind of Russian investigation going on or saying it's fake news or a hoax. He now says in the interview with Holt that he WELCOMES the investigation, and how great it is that they're trying to find out if the Russians meddled in the election, and how terrible it would be if they did. Yeah, that's totally credible. He's a total joke and the worst president ever.

    You could tell me that you realize you're just as partisan as those you are criticizing. At least that's how it looks from where I sit.

    You don't have to be partisan to see that sending your people out to the media to tell a ridiculous story, let them take the heat for you, and then immediately the next day contradict them, is pretty crappy. No one with even just half a brain would say a good CEO would do that.

    But much worse than that is the obstruction of justice. He clearly doesn't want the FBI to find out anything, so he hopes firing their director ends that investigation. He's had a long time to fire Comey. But he chooses to do it the very next day after some damaging testimony in the Senate Intelligence Committee. He's already tried other shenanigans to obstruct what the House was doing in theirs, like the nonsense with former chairman Nunes. What is Trump trying to keep from coming to light? if you say nothing, then why the hell is he contradicting himself, lying and acting so weird about everything?

    This isn't normal dem vs. republican politics. This is a total wacko nutjob in office who is loyal only to himself who you could stick either a D or an R in front of his name and who either side would be repulsed by what he's doing.
