Comey
I was going to put this under Trumpocalypse, or Kompromat, but those have become so crowded with separate Trumpocalyptic subthreads, I thought L'affaire Comey deserves its own thread. So apologies if someone's started this discussion in one of the others.

Trump threatens Comey in Twitter outburst

Quote
President Donald Trump issued a thinly veiled threat Friday to fired FBI Director James Comey, an extraordinary development in the ongoing feud between the President and the agencies investigating alleged ties between his campaign and Russia.

The tweet seemed to suggest there are possibly recorded conversations between Trump and Comey that could be leaked to counter the former FBI director if necessary: "James Comey better hope that there are no 'tapes' of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press."

This is just...  extraordinary*. 

Now with the President of the United States insulting him and his work, what's he supposed to do?
Disappear?
Is he not expected, or allowed, to correct the record?

just... not enough wtf's

it's not a leak if the conversation is not about classified material.

Trump's warning to Comey deepens doubts about his respect for the rule of law

"doubts" ?

The biggest news out of Donald Trump's Thursday interview with NBC was his confession that the Russia investigation was on his mind when he fired FBI Director James Comey. Undercutting 48 hours of denials by his aides, the president said: "In fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said, 'You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story; it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won.'"

Considering his history with secretly recorded tapes, I'd be the one concerned if I were Trump.

I think trump thinks he has a gotcha on comey.  like if he has a tape of comey saying he's not investigating trump (or, more likely, giving carefully-worded, evasive answers that trump interpreted the way he wanted), that means trump is off the hook for anything the investigation finds.  which of course is totally wrong.  if anything, any such tapes are sort of a gotcha on trump himself, for showing he was trying to interfere with the investigation.

Leon panetta was arguing last night that merely asking the fbi director about the investigation is arguably political interference, because it signals to the fbi that the president is concerned about it.

Wtf is going on? Why are you pushing this Russia narrative all of a sudden? Obama interfered in the French election!

Dems interfered in the Primaries!

Have a hard time believing this is our Bernie

There is no way that Russia influenced our election. Only HRC conspired to do that, and they continue this. Was no investigation of Trump.

Quote
Same. He was def threatened during the Primaries...who says anything has changed in that respect?

Quote
Smoke and mirrors Bernie-if you focused on DNC stealing your nomination in the same way you focus on these obscenely bogus Russia claims?

Bernie, if you want to focus on cheating in the 2016 election, focus on the DNC, Hillary, Wasserman-Schultz, Brazile, and CNN. #GUILTY

Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.

Not to go all conspiracy false flag whatever, but that doesn't sound like bernie types. It sounds a lot more like Russia propaganda types.

IIRC, this is the guy is involved in the legal process related to emoluments clause. He says firing Comey is obstruction of justice.

And even Greenwald (who was a lawyer before he became a journalist) took time out of his busy schedule of pretending everyone concerned about Trump-Russia is like Louise Mensch:

Yeah, well, The Donald sort of got that mixed up.
Who knew obliquely threatening high-ranking US Government officials you've just fired could be so complicated.
Are we there yet?
