"Person of Interest", Indeed

Trump’s Oval Office boast to Russian officials May 10 about why he fired FBI Director James Comey will almost certainly trigger a more immediate, and potentially perilous, legal development: an obstruction of justice investigation into whether the president intentionally engaged in a cover-up that warrants the filing of criminal charges, current and former Justice Department officials say.

Trump summarily terminated Comey one day earlier, just as it appeared that his FBI investigators were ramping up their investigation into the president’s associates — and possibly Trump himself. A day later, the president told Russian’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Ambassador Sergey Kislyak that, “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job.”

“I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off. … I’m not under investigation,” Trump added, according to an official White House document summarizing the meeting, as reported Friday by the New York Times.
Donnie seems to be bound and determined to talk himself into either exile* or a prison cell. For he likely sure as shit is now under investigation.

When will politicians ever come to realize that, short of murdering people, it's not what they did that cooks their asses, it's covering it up.

UPDATE: Might be Jared.

Edwin Edwards has it right in 1983 when he said "The only way I can lose this election is if I'm caught in bed with either a dead girl or a live boy." These days, either one would need to be dead, and very much a minor.

I don't know, CP, that preacher that was caught a few years ago in bed sniffing methamphetamine with a male prostitute is back in the preacher business.

Talking about running for congress (pun intended).

As a pessimist and cynic, I suspect that the more heinous and blatant the offense, the more some people will love him. He could stomp a kitten to death and eat its guts on live TV, and his supporters would cheer, and beg for more. The Freedom Caucus would criticize him for being too gentle.

And any blow back he gets will immediately be spun into "persecution" by the idiot hordes who actually like him mostly because of how awful of a human being he is. I ask for a yellow card exemption on the basis that what I said is true. Still, your place, your call, I'm good either way.

Comrade, of course it's Jared. Haven't you seen those comercials about how it better be Jared if you want to get a ring. Vladimir needed a ring for Donnie's nose, so off to Jared he went.
