Cummings Wants White House Docs On Trump's 'Nut Job' Comey Remarks

Source: Talking Points Memo



By MATT SHUHAM Published MAY 19, 2017 5:52 PM

The ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee on Friday urged Chair Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) to demand documents from the White House that show the President expressing relief to top Russian diplomats over his firing of the FBI director.

“This new report that President Trump openly admitted to the Russians that he ‘faced great pressure’ from the FBI’s criminal investigation that was ‘taken off’ when he fired Director Comey is astonishing—and extremely troubling,” Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) said in a statement. “If these White House documents in fact exist memorializing the President’s statements to the Russians, the Oversight Committee needs to obtain copies immediately.”

Cummings’ statement came on the heels of a New York Times report that Trump told the Russian foreign minister and ambassador to the United States that he was relieved he’d gotten rid of former FBI Director James Comey.

“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Trump said, according to a document summarizing the meeting that was read out to the newspaper by an anonymous American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”

1. LOL, Trump just made things SO much worse for himself firing Comey.

He thought he faced pressure before?

Somebody pinch me, I'm dreaming!

2. It is entirely possible that they are never able to pin anything directly on Trump except the

obstruction he has admitted to, even bragged about.

4. All I can say is I hope that

Mr. Comey is really really really angry.

So angry that he's boiling mad.

So boiling mad that he finds a way to take down Cheeto-lini.


I'm done being disgusted. I'm furious. Furious that the Republican Party let this numbskull become their candidate. Furious with the idiots who voted him in.

Mr. Comey, please...you are the one who tipped the balance. Now, FIX IT.

5. You said it. I find myself livid too many times negatively affecting affecting my health.

(Reading your post, I read cheetolini as 'cheetoland' due to a new phone's type. I guess that could also apply!)

7. Uncharitable dirty words come into my head with regards to describing a so-called madman.

This has never been in my make-up till now.
I literally astonish myself at times, what's happened to me? Was never meek and mild, but always tried to find some redeeming quality in people that were difficult or hard to 'take'. My country and its Democracy is being crapped on. May proper legal judgment fall upon these brazen ones. In a timely manner.
