The Comey timeline ... including the hug Laughing

Quote:
OCTOBER 31, 2016 – Trump holds a rally in Grand Rapids, MI

“You know that. It took a lot of guts. I really disagreed with him. I was not his fan,” Trump said of Comey. “I tell you what, what he did, he brought back his reputation. He brought it back. He's got to hang tough. A lot of people want him to do the wrong thing. What he did was the right thing.”

While speaking to supporters in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Trump again offered praise for the FBI and this time mentioned Comey by name. Trump said that Comey has effectively saved his reputation by re-investigating Clinton.

"He's become more famous than me," Trump said of Comey to a crowd at a reception.

Before making the comment, Trump called out to Comey, who was in the crowd. Comey approached Trump who shook his hand before embracing him in a hug.

But the news raises furthers questions about why Trump was so determined to bring Flynn into his Cabinet and overlook his considerable baggage, which included including a falling-out with the Defense Intelligence Agency and his lobbying work for a Dutch firm linked to Turkey's government throughout the end of 2016. Trump has reportedly stayed in contact with Flynn, urging him to "stay strong" in a private message in April, according to Yahoo News.

"Trump's team knew about [Flynn's] ties to Russia and they knew about his work with Turkey," said Rep. Eric Swalwell, a Democrat who sits on the House Intelligence Committee. "What's most concerning is that it looks like they just didn't care. So you have to ask yourself — were Flynn's prior relationships an asset?"

The developments came as Flynn refused a subpoena for documents from the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to Sen. Richard Burr, the Republican chair of the committee.

Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings, ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, renewed his call for the White House to release any documents related to Flynn that may aid the committee's investigation into his foreign contacts and payments. The White House has so far declined to do so.

"The White House has been obstructing our congressional investigation, covering up for Michael Flynn, and refusing to provide a single document in response to our bipartisan request. Now we can see why,” Cummings said in a statement.

He said that the committee's chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, "needs to subpoena the White House or let the committee take a vote."

Flynn's time at the White House lasted just 24 days. He was asked to resign on February 13 over reports that he had discussed sanctions with Russia's ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak, during the transition. But Trump continued to defend him, going as far as suggesting to FBI Director James Comey the next day to drop the investigation into Flynn's foreign contacts, according to a memo Comey wrote about the conversation.

Trump also waited nearly three weeks to fire Flynn after being warned by former acting Attorney General Sally Yates that Flynn could be vulnerable to Russian blackmail. He also ignored advice by President Barack Obama — who fired Flynn as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014 — to steer clear of him entirely.

But Trump's family "had a blind spot" for Flynn, who asked Trump's daughter and son-in-law for the national-security adviser position shortly after Trump was elected, NBC reported on Wednesday. He got it, the report said, because of his loyalty during the campaign.

Preet Bharara

https://www.propublica.org/article/trump-personal-lawyer-boasted-that-he-got-preet-bharara-fired

Quote:

New presidents typically ask U.S. attorneys to resign and have the power to fire them. But Trump asked Bharara to stay in his job when they met in November at Trump Tower, as Bharara announced after the meeting.

In early March, Trump reversed himself. He asked all the remaining U.S. attorneys to resign, including Bharara. Bharara, a telegenic prosecutor with a history of taking on powerful politicians, refused and was fired March 11.

As ProPublica previously reported, at the time of Bharara’s firing the Southern District was conducting an investigation into Trump’s secretary of health and human services, Tom Price.

@ehBeth,

Quote:
Jul 21, 2017
In President Donald Trump’s operations, experience often takes a back seat to familiarity, trust, and a keen eye for what pleases the boss. So it made sense that Anthony Scaramucci was brimming with confidence when he took to the White House podium Friday, just hours after being named Trump's new communications director.

Scaramucci, a smooth-talking New York financier, has almost no experience in Washington politics other than as a writer of checks to members of both parties. But he knows both his audience and his way around a television camera, and spent much of his first 34 minutes at the podium emphasizing the close personal affection he has for his new boss.

The appointment of Scaramucci, which triggered the resignation of beleaguered White House press secretary Sean Spicer, may mark a turning point in an administration that is increasingly under fire. His hiring signals that a President increasingly irritated by the Russia scandals and congressional stalemate is putting his instincts ahead of the counsel of his most trusted hands.

In hiring Scaramucci, Trump overruled the advice of his chief strategist, Steve Bannon, and chief of staff, Reince Priebus. Even Spicer's decision to thrown down a him-or-me gauntlet didn't persuade the President. Instead Trump relied on the guidance of his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, both of whom pushed for the move.

Trumps appointments evoke the same feelings a mess of pit bulls. I don't like them; I don't trust them, they are scary, but I also don't like to see them abused.

@roger,
I'm just listening to a small Washington panel talk about the increasing difficulty of recruiting faced by the WH precisely because of that problem.

The panel was interrupted by news ... which featured a clip of Sarah Huckabee Sanders who sounds worn to a nub right now.

Spicer may not be gone after all

Quote:
Spicer, naturally, was furious, and quickly said he would resign rather than report to Scaramucci. And Trump accepted his resignation (though it technically hasn’t gone into effect yet, suggesting it’s not impossible that Spicer might even stick around now that Scaramucci is gone).

Quote:
“George Papadopoulos, he’s an energy and oil consultant, excellent guy,” boasted Donald Trump on March 21, 2016. But as frequently happens to the great, excellent, very, very top guys Trump surrounds himself with, Papadopoulos is now turning out to be a total loser who nobody has ever heard of. One Trump mouthpiece calls him a “coffee boy.” “Few people knew the young, low level volunteer named George, who has already proven to be a liar,” Trump now tweets.
