    This may be the nail in the Trump's coffin. I always said he would destroy himself. With the Comey memo of Trump asking Comey to excuse Flynn from the investigation, followed by the firing of Comey, Trump's threat directed at Comey if he spoke up, and now Trump saying the pressure of the investigation is eased with his firing of Comey. Clearly, the Clinton email investigation was not the reason Comey was fired. Obstruction of justice is all but certain.

    “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”

    Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.”

    C'mon Donald, you can see these Jews will not stop until they've Nixoned you. They have too much power in the Swamp for you to beat them in the Swamp. The only real power you have is in the military

    Frankly, I would not be surprised if Trump went off his rocker and tried to use the military. He's nuts.

    "...according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official."

    Which American official? Just curious. I'm assuming the Times verified the accuracy with a second source. Who was the second American official?

    I got so pissed off at the way Lavroy made a joke out of it... Obviously the tone in the WH was making fun of firing Comey..
    So disrespectful....

    Why in the hell does Trump treat Americans like that in front of Russian...what a complete ass

    As someone aptly [albeit, sarcastically] stated, "maybe Mexico will agree to pay for the impeachment???"...LOL

    To say that Comey is a nutjob is an understatement

    He has totally lost the plot.

    Go home and retire ....be out of public life Comey.

    And why does Trump even bring up our dirty laundry in front of Russians which Putin calls political schizophrenia.
