Default Trump Thread

The RIP America thread is 30 pages long and since vbulletin doesn't wrap or condense page number lists it's getting unwieldy.

To sum up the past couple of weeks: Trump fired James Comey, sent his spokepeople out to claim it was because of Comey's misconduct with Hillary, and then contradicted them on the record twice, admitting that he did it to ease the pressure of the Russia investigation which he claims is a made-up story. Then it was revealed that Comey had sent internal memos contemporaneously documenting the times when Trump personally asked him to lay off the investigation. Later it also came out that Trump had similarly pressured the directors of national intelligence and the NSA.

In other news, one of the times that Trump admitted that he fired Comey to end the investigation was when he met with the Russian foreign minister in the Oval Office, which we only have photographs of because a Russian journalist was allowed where American journalists were not, and at that same time he revealed code-word classified information about ISIS that Israel did not give us permission to share with anyone, much less the Russians. Soon after, Trump departed on his first foreign trip as president where he embarrassed himself in front of Netanyahu, saying unprompted in front of a press gaggle that he never once mentioned "Israel" to the Russians, which was incidentally the first time a public official said "Israel" on the record regarding that incident.

Meanwhile special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed by the DOJ to investigate the entire Russia affair. The White House is already trying to undermine him.

It has been confirmed that Trump knew Flynn was under investigation when he hired him. And he reportedly pressured him to take the job even though he didn't want it. Now Flynn is pleading the fifth. Seems like more is coming about about campaign contacts with Russians every day. The investigation is looking into a cover-up. Republicans are coming out for impeachment. Rubio thinks people got what they voted for. McConnell's friends think he might come around soon.

This is a really terrible summary, lest anyone think it's thorough. I tried.
