Comey Tried To Hide In White House Curtains To Avoid Trump

Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly once tried to blend into the curtains in the White House Blue Room in order to avoid being approached by President Trump

According to a New York Times report published Thursday, Comey tried to blend into the Blue Room’s blue curtains during a White House visit for a ceremony honoring law enforcement officials who provided security at inauguration.

From The Hill

Comey recounted the incident to his friend, Brookings Institution fellow Benjamin Wittes, who told the story to The Times. Comey, who is 6 feet 8 inches tall, was wearing a dark blue suit and stood near the similarly colored curtains in the back of the room, hoping that Trump would not spot him.
“He thought he had gotten through and not been noticed or singled out and that he was going to get away without an individual interaction,” Wittes told the Times.

However, Comey was spotted by the president, who called out to him and joked he had become “more famous” than himself. Trump went in for a hug when Comey was reportedly trying to only give Trump a handshake.

“Comey said that as he was walking across the room he was determined that there wasn’t going to be a hug,” Wittes said. “It was bad enough there was going to be a handshake. And Comey has long arms so Comey said he pre-emptively reached out for a handshake and grabbed the president’s hand. But Trump pulled him into an embrace and Comey didn’t reciprocate. If you look at the video, it’s one person shaking hands and another hugging.”

The Times report mostly went into Comey’s experience with the president leading up to his abrupt firing last week. Comey reportedly tried to distance himself from Trump to ensure the FBI’s independence from the White House.

Trump’s Attorneys Issue Letter Certifying No Russia Business Ties

“A lot of people thought I owned…”

President Donald Trump sent a letter from his private attorneys to Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., this week certifying that based on tax returns over the last 10 years, the president has no significant business ties to Russia.

The letter, which was prepared for Trump by attorneys Sheri Dillon and William Nelson with the Washington, D.C. firm Morgan, Lewis and Bockius in early March, was delivered to Graham in response to comments he made indicating that he wanted his Senate Judiciary subcommittee to look into Trump’s potential business ties to Russia.

The South Carolina senator said it would be helpful to have Trump tax returns as it investigates the matter, but he did not commit to subpoenaing them.

NBC News’ Lester Holt asked Trump on Thursday, “Can you tell us whether you, your family, your businesses, you surrogates, have accepted any investments, any loans from Russian individuals?”

Trump responded referencing the letter forwarded to Graham from “one of the most prestigious law firms in the country.”

“I have nothing to do with Russia. I have no investments in Russia, none, whatsoever,” the president proclaimed.

He continued, “I don’t have property in Russia. A lot of people thought I owned office buildings in Moscow. I don’t have property in Russia.”

The letter states, “With a few exceptions — as detailed below — your tax returns do not reflect (1) any income of any type from Russian sources, (2) any debt owed by you or TTO [The Trump Organization] to Russian lenders or any interest paid by you or TTO to Russian lenders, (3) any equity investments by Russian persons or entities in entities controlled by you or TTO, or (4) any equity or debt investments by you or TTO in Russian entities.”

The letter lists the exceptions, which Trump also discussed during his Holt interview. In 2013, the Miss Universe pageant was held in Russia and a substantial portion of Trump’s $12.2 million in foreign income reported on his taxes that year, resulted from that event.

Additionally, in 2008 Trump Properties LLC sold an Palm Beach, Fla., estate it acquired in 2005 for $41 million to a Russian billionaire for $95 million.

Finally, the attorneys write that it is likely that Trump Organization entities or affiliates engaged in selling goods or services to Russians during the normal course of business. Examples given included condominium fees, hotel rooms, rounds of golf, or Trump licensed products such as ties, books, or wine.

 

 

WHO ARE TRUMP SUPPORTERS

Drudge Explains How Trump ‘Saved the Media’ in Rare Radio Interview

Conservative shock jock Michael Savage turned 75 on Friday. In honor of his ’75th anniversary,’ Matt Drudge of the infamous Drudge Report took over Savage’s show for a little while, fielded a few questions from callers, commented on the Trump administration so far, and offered from friendly advice to the President.

At one point, Drudge pointed out how Trump actually “saved the media.” What did he mean by that? Well, prior to Trump’s winning the presidency, the media was on the brink of demise. Sure, people were tuned in to watch the campaign coverage, but I think so many people just assumed Hillary was going to win, and most people were probably fed up with how lame the coverage was – pro-Hillary, anti-Trump – and they turned to other alternative sources for news coverage.

“I’m getting a little bit nervous about the media situation,” he said. “The media was hanging on by the short-hairs. Do you know Vanity Fair was going under? CNN barely had a fraction. Some of the networks had N/A…

“Trump has saved the media. Record ratings now because the opposition is consolidating, they are following every bouncing ball. People actually believe Trump is a Russian agent — this is the drugged ones. This is the drugged ones.”

If Hillary had won, the media would have certainly gone through a dark age for a time.

But since Trump won, the media’s ratings have been revived. That’s not just because so many people hate Trump and love to see him getting beat up in the press. That is part of it, but you don’t have to hate Trump to watch mainstream media sources. Some people actually love to be outraged – whether it’s at what’s being reported, or whether it’s at those doing the reporting. The media doesn’t care whether you love the network or hate them. As long as you’re watching, that helps their ratings.

 

 

Whoa! What Trump Just Did For Flint Michigan Will FLOOR YOU! The Media Will NEVER Report This!

President Trumps campaign visits to Flint, Michigan gave him an up close view of the deprecated infrastructure of this once booming town. Flint residents been crying out for months for help and now their call is finally being answered!

“President Trump is awarding 100 million dollars to the city of Flint, Michigan!”

Liberty Writers News reports,

The funds are part of the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act, which was approved in 2016 and now being carried out by President Trump. The money was officially awarded on Friday, and will help the city accelerate programs to replace service lines that have leached lead in to the city’s water supply.

Mayor, Karen Weaver said the city is really ‘excited and very grateful’ to receive the aid from the federal government.

“The city of Flint being awarded a grant of this magnitude in such a critical time of need will be a huge benefit,” Weaver said.

President Trump supports making budget cuts to save taxpayers money, but this is an area that he will not touch.

“Under President Trump’s budget blueprint, SRF (State Revolving Fund) remains fully funded, and the proposal provides robust funding for the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act program to finance critical drinking and wastewater infrastructure,” the EPA said in a statement.

Many community activists claim that this situation has been ignored because Flint residents are mostly black and poor. I wonder if those same activists will praise our president for releasing the funds so quickly to help Americans in need.

Dear President Trump

NY Times Contradicts Itself On Wiretap: Its Front Page Headline “Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides”

That was the headline from January 20th, 2017. Here we are in March and they are trashing their own reports! Now they are saying there is no evidence of a wiretap.

The New York Times has inadvertently attacked the credibility of its own reporting on the Obama Administration’s investigation of Russia and now-President Donald Trump.
Times reporters Michael Schmidt and Michael Shear write that Trump believes the “deep state” intelligence community, staffed with holdovers from the Obama Administration, wiretapped several of his campaign associates because of a spurious article from Breitbart News:

On Sunday, the president demanded a congressional inquiry into whether Mr. Obama had abused the power of federal law enforcement agencies before the 2016 presidential election. In a statement from his spokesman, Mr. Trump called “reports” about the wiretapping “very troubling” and said that Congress should examine them as part of its investigations into Russia’s meddling in the election.

Mr. Trump’s demand for a congressional investigation appears to be based, at least in part, on unproved claims by Breitbart News and conservative talk radio hosts that secret warrants were issued authorizing the tapping of the phones of Mr. Trump and his aides at Trump Tower in New York.
The Gateway Pundit comments,

The Breitbart article in question (which Schmidt and Shear do not link to) cites the Times’ own reporting on the intelligence community. Their January 19th article, “Intercepted Russian Communications Part of Inquiry Into Trump Associates,” also bore Schmidt’s byline.

DONALD J. TRUMP HISTORY

NBC BUSTED! Report Shows They Were Behind Serious Actions To Hurt Trump In Presidential Election

The infamous “Access Hollywood” tape — in which President Donald Trump bragged about grabbing women by the hoo-ha — was an inside job, leaked by an NBC News staffer on Billy Bush’s own “Today” show, multiple sources tell Page Six.

“The tape was leaked by the NBC News division, by somebody at the ‘Today’ show,” says one source. “NBC News knew for a while about the existence of the tape. Billy himself had told them about it. People in the news division became frustrated that ‘Access Hollywood’ was taking too long to air it and decided it had to come out.”

From Page Six

“Access” had been working on airing a sanitized version of the tape, which revealed Trump’s comments but protected Bush by editing out his. But the full tape, which was leaked to the Washington Post, featured Bush goading the president. The leak got Bush fired from “Today,” which was, according to the source, part of the plan.

“The leaked tape served a dual purpose: It helped get Bush out of the way — Matt Lauer didn’t like him and felt he was a liability — and NBC thought it would derail Trump,” says the source. “But all it did was crush Billy, and, ironically, his own network was behind it.”

When Bush first came to “Today,” sources told us he did not get along with the cast, who considered him a “frat boy.” Then, he wrong-footed with his Ryan Lochte story about the supposed Rio robbery. And Lauer wasn’t happy that Bush was being hailed as his heir apparent. “The leak was not just a political move,” another source tells us. “Lauer felt threatened.”

The leaker is still at NBC and has not been disciplined, says the source, who adds, “There was no investigation, no internal witch hunt by NBC into who leaked the tape. It served their purposes.”

Another “Today” insider insists, “The leak did not come from ‘Today.’ It was leaked by somebody on the West Coast who hated Billy Bush and wanted to take him down.”

Others at NBC played down Lauer’s role. A source said, “Billy and Matt had a great relationship. Matt had nothing to do with the tape.” Lauer himself added, “This story is a complete fantasy, patently false.”
