Apparently Rosenstein told the Senate yesterday that the FBI inquiry is no longer just a counter-intelligence investigation, but now a criminal one.

I have this mental image of Trump walking around in a bath robe randomly telling people they're fired. And going "Wooooo!" down the hallway.

Has the bath robe got frilly cuffs with "Nature Boy" emblazoned on the back?

According to the failing New York Times today, Foreign Embassies and leaders are being asked (told) to compliment Donald Trump on his election win when meeting him and make a short presentation with only a few major issues tailored to his attention span.

Have you ever known anything like it.

Rosenstein's comments to the House and Senate are now available. Based on these he won't be getting a Christmas card from James Comey. More importantly, he might not be the Deputy Attorney General for much longer. His account completely contradicts the White House presentation of his role in the Comey firing.

I think he's more focused on eradicating his own presidency first.

It's just amazing that in 50 years we've gone from the soaring speeches of Kennedy which helped sell a nation on paying for a mission to the moon and now Trump who can barely string a coherent sentence together and has the attention span of a 10 year old.

50 years? More like 4-8. A few of Obama's speeches were easily up there with Kennedy's.

Trump Told Russians That Firing ‘Nut Job’ Comey Eased Pressure From Investigation

President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office this month that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved “great pressure” on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting.

“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”

Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.”

Comey — reinforces the notion that Mr. Trump dismissed him primarily because of the bureau’s investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian operatives. Mr. Trump said as much in one televised interview, but the White House has offered changing justifications for the firing.

The White House document that contained Mr. Trump’s comments was based on notes taken from inside the Oval Office and has been circulated as the official account of the meeting. One official read quotations to The Times, and a second official confirmed the broad outlines of the discussion.

Russia probe reaches current White House official

The law enforcement investigation into possible coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign has identified a current White House official as a significant person of interest, showing that the probe is reaching into the highest levels of government, according to people familiar with the matter.

The senior White House adviser under scrutiny by investigators is someone close to the president, according to these people, who would not further identify the official.

The revelation comes as the investigation also appears to be entering a more overtly active phase, with investigators shifting from work that has remained largely hidden from the public to conducting interviews and using a grand jury to issue subpoenas. The intensity of the probe is expected to accelerate in the coming weeks, the people said.
