WHAT WE DO KNOW IS THAT ONE OF 'THEM' IS A LIAR

One thing for certain following the testimony (under oath) to the Senate Intelligence Committee by ex FBI Director James Comey is that either he or President Trump is a liar ... either Trump told Comey to ease up on the investigation as to General Flynn's alleged contact with the Russians or he didn't.

 The stakes are high for both parties.   For Comey and if it can be shown he perjured himself then the slammer awaits.   For Trump and if indeed he gave such a direction to Comey then that's impeachment material.

What is fascinating the speculation that the Oval Office still has a taping system.   Actually I'd be surprised if it doesn't and even more surprised if it does ... Watergate and all of that.   Might this just be a case of history repeating itself?

No, we already know which one is the liar.

It is the one who has made lying an art form, a central plank of his campaign, and the sole policy in his administration.

It is the one who just yesterday accused Comey of "leaking" when there was nothing to leak. Comey was simply providing his records of interactions with Trump. These were Comey's personal notes, not government records.

Jobson Growth said...

Further to the above, Comey has laid a few traps in his testimony, traps that could lead to the Trumpanistas being forced into perjury.

Jobson 10.01 ... so that's it then. We don't need to wait for the evidence. Guilty until proven innocent. Stalin would be proud of you.

Trump: "James Comey better hope that there are no 'tapes' of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"

Comey: "Lordy, I hope there are tapes!"

Trump: [background: crickets chirping]

Wonder which one's lying?

Trump: (background) erasers erasing !!!!!

David said...

Vet, the evidence is in. Did you follow Jobson's link with the number of lies already attributed to Trump?

If that didn't convince you, maybe this will.

Trump was naive in not looking at Comey's background in other former businesses. Was CEO in a major arms Manufacturing Company when they were awarded huge Government contracts under Clinton, and when he left he was awarded a huge payment at the time.
Eventually was given the FBI - who have had a dubious reputation for many years, by Obama under advisement. Here is the tip of the iceberg on Comey.
If you became President of the USA couldn't you expect that your senior staff would be show some loyalty the President, whoever, rather than work assiduously behind your back with other politicians and the media. ?
Russia is a "red" herring as has already been seen - move on Washington Post and New York Times.
We will see that Comey has been in the pocket of the Clintons and Obama for many years - going to be a good watch.

God bless President Trump of USA > A long life and successful Presidency.
Yes of course he has tapes, and even an idiot like Jobsinhispants can read up the criminal pathology of Comey's career of corruption. I'll put the Bill Still tape up later . It outlines the Comey and Clinton associations from the cocaine dealing onward.

paul scott said...

Here's some of the stuff on Comey. Its an edited version of a leak from the Whitehouse and is all verifiable 15 minutes or so

Tons of conspiracy theory stuff but still no evidence in support of either Trump or Comey. Seems some people have short memories ... Comey's reopening of the FBI investigation into Hillary's e-mails controversy just a few days out from the election was widely credited as the final nail in her coffin.

David said...

paul Scott, there are no tapes. if there were, there is no way Trump could have stayed silent, we would have heard them well and truly by now. The tapes either prove Comey's story and have been destroyed, or they do not and never did exist.

Paul Scott is so dumb that he thinks the US government awarding an arms contract to a US arms manufacturer is corruption.

Anon 2:39..."Trump was naive........." that's when you should have quit while you were ahead. It's sad when the only people on this blog sticking up for Trump are other confirmed liars. As veteran says...wait for the evidence although it seems a slam dunk now....Side effect of the UK labour resurgence is that Drumph will not be taking tea at Buck House anytime soon.

Donny Two Scoops wants a ride in the Queen's gold carriage. He is behaving like an ugly American tourist, not a head of state.

Donny Two Scoops will have trouble arranging anything with the UK as he has no ambassador there. Fired the incumbent and can't be fucked doing the actual work of finding a replacement. Tweetering, cozying up to dictators, and looting the treasury is far more important the Statesmanship and good governance.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

As usual Jobless has it wrong. He fired Obama's ambassador.

His mistake was in not firing much earlier Obama's good friend who was running the FBI.

David said...

Adolf, the Ambassador represents the nation, not the HoS.

Yes, it was within Trump's to fire any and all Ambassadors. It is also his job to hire new ones. But, as he said himself "He knew presidenting would be so hard?".

You are right about Comey, as since Trump didn't fire him soon enough, Comey has the goods that will contribute to the downfall of the misbegotten Trumpire. Comey has his notes, Trump has no tapes and an idiots inability to tell a consistent lie.

David said...

^^^^^^^^
He = who

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

There you go again, David.

I did not say the ambassador represents the President. I said he was appointed by the previous president. Most are dismissed by an incoming president.

David said...

There YOU go again, Adolf. never willing to accept your errors, always using the Trumpian duck and whistle play.

He fired Obama's ambassador. is a clear statement that the Ambassador was the President's.

Most are dismissed by an incoming president.

Not always, but when done by previous Presidents they were quick to make new appointments, especially to major nations. Trump is too lazy and too stupid to do the hiring.

Firing is all Trump is good at. He moans "Democrats are taking forever to approve my people,"and yet he has failed to nominate anyone for around 80% of Administration jobs left vacant after his Night of The Long Tweets sackings.

Trump is a fool, wrapped in ignorance, inside a liar; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Trump's business interests.
