  • Russia's Lavrov says he did not discuss Comey with Trump - Interfax

    05/20/2017 10:06:56 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 34 replies
    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday he had not discussed the firing of the former FBI Director James Comey with U.S. President Donald Trump, Interfax news agency reported. "We did not touch this issue at all," Interfax quoted Lavrov as saying. The New York Times has reported that Trump told Lavrov and Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak at a White House meeting last week that firing Comey relieved "great pressure" the president faced from a law-enforcement probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
  • Alan Dershowitz: Trump did not obstruct justice in firing James Comey

    Washington Examiner ^ | 05/12/2017 | Alan Dershowitz
    An absurd argument is now being put forward by some Democratic ideologues: namely that President Trump engaged in the crime of obstructing justice by firing FBI Director James Comey. Whatever one may think of the president's decision to fire Comey as a matter of policy, there is absolutely no basis for concluding that the president engaged in a crime by exercising his statutory and constitutional authority to fire Comey. As Comey himself wrote in his letter to the FBI, no one should doubt the authority of the president to fire the director for any reason or no reason. It simply...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) said he is visiting the White House on Thursday but denied reports he's on the short list to replace FBI Director James Comey. “I’m not a candidate for FBI director,” he said in a New York Magazine story published Wednesday. “I am not. The president’s not gonna ask me, and I’m not gonna be FBI director.” He declined to say whether he is meeting personally with President Trump on Thursday, saying: “If I am, I wouldn’t say.” Giuliani added that he approves of Trump’s decision to fire Comey. “I think the president...

    From the New York Times, a headline that President Trump would presumably prefer not to read: “Days Before Firing, Comey Asked for More Resources for Russia Inquiry.” The DOJ flatly denies this: Justice Department spokesperson Sarah Flores denies Comey asked Rosenstein for more resources. She called reporting to the contrary “100% false,” and told reporters she spoke directly with Rosenstein about the reports.

    Hillary Clinton was back yesterday, taking "absolute personal responsibility" by blaming Russia, FBI Director James Comey and misogyny for her second presidential election loss. If the election had taken place on Oct. 27, Clinton maintained, she'd be president. Perhaps if we were to all live in a vacuum where the electorate ignored everything the Democratic Party's flawed nominee said and did (and tried to hide), she would be in the White House -- although even that's debatable. Clinton's counterfactual tale about the infamous Comey letter has been a security blanket for many Democrats. But, as luck would have it, the...

    Veteran reporter Bob Woodward sent a message directed to President Trump late Saturday: "The media is not fake news." "The effort today to get this best obtainable version of the truth is largely made in good faith," Woodward said during remarks at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner. "Mr. President, the media is not fake news." Woodward said during his speech that any president and his administration is "clearly entitled to the most serious reporting efforts possible." "We need to understand, to listen, to dig — obviously our reporting needs to get both facts and tone right," he said. "The...

    The president of the White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) on Saturday pushed back against President Trump's claims that news outlets covering his administration critically are reporting "fake news." "We are not fake news, we are not failing news organizations and we are not the enemy of the American people," WHCA president and Reuters correspondent Jeff Mason said at the organization's annual dinner. Trump and his chief strategist Steven Bannon have repeatedly referred to members of the media as the "enemy of the American people," while Trump himself has long maintained an antagonistic relationship with the press. Mason's speech received a...

    Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) publicly apologized for not properly acknowledging the Armenian Genocide during her tenure under the administration of U.S. resident Barack Obama. Almost every Armenian-American family was touched in some way by the genocide. Ongoing Turkish denial makes the genocide an open wound… I am very sorry that, during our time in office, we in the Obama administration did not recognize the Armenian Genocide,” Power said in a series of tweets. .... Power has faced much criticism for her silence on Obama’s failure to recognize the Armenian Genocide, and had refused to publicly...

    Reports that SEAL Team Six is training in South Korea are false, a senior defense official told Fox News on Tuesday. SEAL Team Six is a direct action and hostage rescue team, part of the national mission force, not the type of unit that would participate in a training exercise in South Korea, a separate U.S. defense official said. There are U.S. special operations teams -- including SEALs -- who always conduct training in the region with their South Korean counterparts, according to officials. They say the U.S. forces will continue to do so in the annual Foal Eagle exercise,...

    Seattle Mayor Ed Murray on Friday denied as "simply not true" allegations in a civil lawsuit that he once paid a homeless, drug-addicted teenager for sex in the 1980s, and he vowed to press on with his re-election campaign. Appearing briefly at the downtown office of his private attorney, Murray, 61, a Democrat who began his first term in 2013, shed no light on the identity of his anonymous accuser while challenging the man's credibility. "I understand the individual making these accusations is troubled, and that makes me sad as well," he said.

    In an interview with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC Tuesday, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice broke her silence over this week’s stunning reports that she requested the names of Trump campaign and transition officials be “demasked” from National Security Agency (NSA) intercepts. It was an awkward interview. Rice confirmed that she requested the demasking of Americans while she was National Security Adviser. While Rice would not deny that she asked that names of Trump officials be demasked, she insisted the Obama administration did not spy on Mr. Trump or his staff for political purposes. As a former CIA analyst who...

    Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” President Barack Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice addressed reports she was responsible for the unmasking of names of Trump associates after the election during the transition period. Rice said unmaking names in intelligence reports she received is standard procedure insisting, “I leaked nothing to nobody,” adding there is “no equivalence” between unmasking and leaking.

    Media darling Chelsea Clinton told CBS News This Morning Tuesday she is not running for president 'right now.' Asked if she was thinking about running for office, Clinton said she is not the person to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020. 'I think to run for public office, though, a few things have to be true. I think you have to have a clear vision of what you would do in a given job,' Clinton said. 'You have to have a clear sense that you're the best person for that job.'

    Less than two weeks before sources said it was Susan Rice who requested to unmask the names of Trump associates caught up in sensitive intelligence reports, former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser said she knew “nothing about” surveillance allegations. Rice told PBS on March 22 that she “was not aware of any orders given to disseminate that information.” She did skirt the issues of whether she herself unmasked or disseminated information outright. Rice also limited her remarks to Trump’s debunked early March tweet claiming a wiretap of Trump Tower and vague remarks made by House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin...

    Conservatives are seizing on a report that former national security advisor Susan Rice requested the identity of anonymous people named in intelligence reports, claiming that it provides evidence for President Trump’s false claim that Trump Tower was wiretapped. Bloomberg’s Eli Lake reported Monday that Rice requested the “unmasking” of third parties whose information is collected during targeted surveillance of other individuals. Conservative media jumped on the claim and reported that it corroborates Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee’s allegation that information about Trump’s transition team had been “incidentally collected” during U.S. government surveillance of foreign officials....

RICE: I know nothing about this. I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that count today. And...
