‘NO COLLUSION’: Trump proclaims his innocence after release of Comey memos that make him look bad

Published

on

After the House Republicans released the memos from former FBI director James Comey, President Donald Trump declared victory on Twitter.

“James Comey Memos just out and show clearly that there was NO COLLUSION and NO OBSTRUCTION. Also, he leaked classified information. WOW! Will the Witch Hunt continue?” he tweeted.

The memos don’t prove there was no collusion, rather they quote the president saying that there is no collusion.

Similarly, the memos don’t prove there was no obstruction of justice. The allegation against Trump is that the firing of Comey was the example of obstruction, because Trump told NBC News Lester Holt the firing was as a result of the Russia investigation.

A leak is defined as an unauthorized release of confidential government information. Thus, the release of the memo was not technically considered a leak.

Many commentators have noted that the release of the memos ultimately makes Trump look worse. Whether it was the constant need to bring up Russia, yet another story of Trump and Russian prostitutes and the concerning timeline about conversations regarding former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

The real problem wasn’t the racism — it was the Trump taking ‘the Lord’s name in vain’ twice: supporter

Published

One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."

The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.
