Secret Service says it doesn't have any Trump tapes

Howard Terry | 17 June, 2017, 07:47

Years from now, people will have forgotten much about the scandal surrounding the president right now.

With constant imposition of will by exploiting his powers and misusing his position as the POTUS, Donald Trump has successfully placed himself on the dark side. Chris Murphy of CT called on Trump to testify under oath, even before Trump volunteered, after Comey dropped a number of bombshells during his testimony to the Senate last Thursday, including that Trump tried to persuade Comey to drop his investigation.

It does no such thing.

Comey suggested in his high-profile Senate testimony last week that any recordings would back up his account over the president's, adding, "Lordy, I hope there are tapes".

The president was referring to Comey's testimony Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee in which he asked a friend to share with a reporter the content of a memo he wrote following a closed-door meeting with the POTUS. Comey also said his conversation with the president so bothered him that he left the White House and immediately made notes about the incident. Both Mueller and former Attorney General Eric Holder, for instance, took jobs with prestigious law firms after leaving public service. Flynn discussed the USA sanctions on Russia with the Russian ambassador in December and then lied about it to Vice President Mike Pence.

The self-sabotage is all too familiar in the Trump White House, where Trump - ultimately his administration's chief messenger - has blown up successive White House communications strategies, sometimes by directly contradicting his own spokespeople.

"The President made clear in the Rose Garden last week he will have an announcement shortly", said Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

All of this yields a picture of a president who does not want all the facts known.

"Voters don't ask who can win, they ask who can lead", Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said at an event sponsored by Axios this past week.

After failing to convince Comey to let Flynn off the hook, to say publicly that Trump wasn't under investigation and to expedite his investigation, the president fired him. Comey didn't comply and was cashiered.

Comey testified that Trump asked him to stop looking into the activities of former national security adviser Michael Flynn and pushed him to lift the "cloud" of the larger Russian Federation probe.

Trump is promoting a proposal to bring more people into the economy by having them start working as apprentices. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., told them, "I think your unwillingness to answer a very basic question speaks volumes". The only person who attempted to obstruct justice: "Loretta Lynch and probably Bill Clinton".

Democrats will nationalize Trump, who will then hit the road for rallies to ridicule "Pouty Pelosi" and "Shady Schumer" in front of his adoring throng in response (hoping they provide as useful a foil as Hillary "Mommy Dearest" Clinton did for him last year).

Mueller's investigation followed what, so far, is the most pivotal tweet of Trump's presidency. The simplest explanation is a fear it will find evidence of guilt. That would seem clearly inappropriate if not illegal, especially since Trump fired Comey after he refused that request and cited the investigation as the reason.

All politicians lie, because they are human and all humans lie.
