How Trump's Comey 'Tapes' Trick Led to Special Counsel Appointment

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has called out Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) over his public comments about the president being under investigation.

On Sunday night, John Oliver addressed President Trump's admission that there were no tapes of his conversations with then-FBI Director James Comey. The media scoffed when they wrote what the president said in that letter.

"This included telling us who was, and who was not, under investigation", Grassley stated on the floor of the Senate.

This past week, as rumors of a Trump-Russia connection and claims that the president was under investigation persisted, Grassley finally concluded that he had had enough. We now know this was a bluff, perhaps meant to coax Mr. Comey to keep quiet about his conversations with Mr. Trump.

The first practice got underway under a clear sky with track temperatures at a blistering 54 degrees C (129 degrees F). It is the fourth retirement Verstappen has suffered in the last six races, and none have been of his making.

In 2016, the Great America PAC was the largest and most effective pro-Trump Super PAC, raising and deploying $30 million in support of the president's candidacy. "It wasn't a surprise to me because Mr. Comey had told me the same thing". He had also told the gang of eight. Far from keeping Mr. Comey quiet, Mr. Trump's "tapes" tweet led to the creation of a mortal threat to his Presidency.

The "gang of eight" includes the four high-ranking lawmakers in each party who get the most thorough intelligence briefing. "The title echoes Trump's criticism of the investigation, which he has called a "witch hunt" on Twitter several times".

Schumer stated on the Senate floor back in March, "You can bet that if the shoe was on the other foot - and a Democratic president was under investigation by the FBI - that Republicans would be howling at the moon about filling a Supreme Court seat in such circumstances". The stunning truth is that the American political and media establishment allowed a phony story - that they knew was phony - to dominate our political discourse for months.

Donald Trump and some of his allies have been slowly picking away at the independent FBI investigation into Trump's 2016 campaign and its alleged ties to Russian Federation - starting weeks ago when rumors surfaced that Trump was considering firing Robert Mueller, who is leading up the investigation.
