NYT and WaPo Coordinate Dual Strikes Against President as Trump Departs for Trip…

Always remember the basic rule that has been proven accurate 100% of the time:

♦ When the CIA wants to leak a damaging story they coordinate with the Washington Post and ABC. (and vice-versa).
♦ When the State Dept. or FBI/DOJ wants to leak a damaging story they coordinate with CNN and the New York Times. (and vice-versa)

This consistent pattern has NEVER been broken.

There is also a particular transparency here, yet again, with regard to media timing and intent.  The Washington Post (3:03pm) and New York Times (3:00pm) are attempting to frame the anti-Trump ‘muh russia‘ narrative as he departs on his first overseas trip.

Dual benefits for antagonistic media and political opposition:

♦ Trump team is out of country and unable to defend administration on-camera, while frenzy ensues 24/7 in U.S corporate broadcast media, and ♦ Trump team becomes relentlessly questioned by traveling press corps abroad on domestic controversy, diminishing Trump international status and pushing the weak/damaged Trump image toward the host nation optic.

It’s how they roll.  Again, check out the timing:

(Story Link)

The New York Times article is the personification of a ‘nothingburger‘ and shows just how desperate Trump’s political opposition have become in their ridiculous efforts to build narratives:

WASHINGTON — 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.”

The conversation, during a May 10 meeting — the day after he fired Mr. 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.  (more)

The funniest aspect of the New York Times framework is this part:

…”reinforces the notion that Mr. Trump dismissed him primarily because of the bureau’s investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian operatives.”…

No, actually Trump saying Comey was a “nut” reinforces the notion that FBI Director James Comey had become a distracting self-aggrandizing gnat whose personal political agenda was having actual consequences on the ability of his boss, President Trump, to deal with real issues surrounding geo-political national security.

Press secretary Sean Spicer does a good job with the following release:

President Trump and his team appear to be doing a good job on this nothingburger.  The best approach is always to use targeted deployment of the word “SO?”

Throughout this entry into the world of politics Donald Trump has effectively owned the downside: “Someone’s doing the raping Don”… etc.  “Yeah, it’s true, I think Comey was a nut – a silly dog chasing a non-existent invisible car – so?”…

Andrew Breitbart was a master of saying “yeah, so?”.

      Acosta the leaker…? Could be….LOL

      Interesting that CNN this PM was commenting on the interactions of Comey & Trump. They kept going back to that LEO meeting where Trump called Comey over. CNN seems to think that Comey was “uncomfortable” being “hugged” by Trump since Comey only extended a hand shake while Trump “grasped” Comey & “pulled ” him into an embrace…….LOL

      I guess it is only a matter of time before a Comey “friend” leaks to the NYT that Comey relayed, in confidence of course, that he “almost” felt that Trump’s interactions came close to “feeling like” sexual advances being made towards Comey…..

      I mean, really, the narrative certainly can’t get any more ridiculous at this point, can it…..?

      Imagine the WaPo/NYT headline……Comey was fired after resisting and rejecting sexual advances from Trump.

    “Relieved ‘great pressure’ on him”
    What they don’t get is it wasn’t external pressure.
    It was the pressure of an under-the-skin zit, constant and irritating,
    until it finally comes to a head enough to pop.
    Relief, and not a second thought about it.
    Unless it keeps coming to a head and re-popped for the next couple of days.
    HEY!!
    It IS just like Comey.

    Donald Trump won the election in spite of every effort made by the press, the democrats, the GOPe and even the American Communist Party. He played them for the idiots that most of them are and he won. My guess is that it won’t be too long before he starts to take down his enemies. I just read that he has now ordered a major investigation into Hillary Clinton’s possible coverup of the Pizzagate affair to protect an unnamed ambassador and some politicians. I think we will all be surprised if it turns out that her only involvement was to organize a cover up. Stay tuned everyone, its all going to happen. The disgusting truth about Clinton and Podesta is going to see full sunlight.

    This Comey Thing, “Misprision” or not?
    Crimes of “sedition” are not common jurisprudence in America although it take place with daily regularity. They were tried once but flew in the face of the 1st Amendment and were abandoned almost as fast as they were enacted by colonial era outrage. Briefly, “Sedition” is conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of the state or monarch. America was founded by sedition against George III and should not be denied to future populations.

    In today’s highly charged political atmosphere only the Democrats and their propaganda machine the Leftist media, outwardly conform to the pure definition of “sedition.” Their aim is to incite people to rebel against Donald Trump and the Republicans. In some undemocratic countries, Venezuela for example, they would already be in prison or executed.

      Comey is only testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Comey refused to testify before the Judiciary Committee. I looked up the members of those committees. The Intelligence Committee is populated with RINO’s and Never-Trumpers. There are maybe only 1 or 2 who would be fair to the President.

      I just sent a message through the Justice Department website to Attorney General Sessions urging him to charge Comey with perjury the moment he claims that the President tried to interfere in his investigation of General Flynn in February (the FBI investigation of Flynn ended in January, with no findings). Comey should also be charged for failing to report inappropriate meddling by the President. Comey thinks he can have it both ways. They are so used to being lawless, they don’t even realize they can get caught. Obama meddled, but Comey had no problem with that.

      I have heard more about Comey’s relationship with the Clintons. They are both from Arkansas.

      I also urged Attorney General Sessions to take care in the appointment of the FBI Director. I remember when Joe Lieberman ran as an independent. He was real chummy with McCain and Graham. Lieberman should be the last person in that job. I still want Sheriff Clarke as FBI Director. He would be fabulous and would get right to work draining the swamp and going after the leakers.

    one of the interesting things about these ‘white house’ pictures for these stories that the news agencies use… they almost ALWAYS show the same room in the house, from the outside. That room they’re showing with a light on? That’s the kitchen!

    The whitehouse was completely rebuilt in the early 50’s, and the room was turned into a family kitchen. So there was a little t.v. on the counter in there, Bill Clinton used to get up in the morning and go over there and watch sports and things on the weekend with the staff. It’d be interesting to see what Trump uses that room for… it’s right across the hallway from the President’s bedroom.

      If the FBI has information that might be detrimental to national security it is their duty to inform the new president the day he takes office. If the CIA has any information to that effect, the same. Complete disclosure. In this instance that did not occur.The fact that it did not is to me clear probable cause for misprison of treason charges for all involved the way I see it, just from what is on the public record.
      Clearly the MSM is colluding with the CIA and FBI in this effort. The first amendment is not a defense in a crime of this magnitude. Whose side are they on?

    Comey wanted to play politics and pick his spots while under the FBI stance that we don’t reveal investigation information except when he deemed fit. Trump fired him and all his protection is gone and Comey must now compete in the rough and tumble field of politics. Comey threw out the first pitch with the Comey memo. Trump responded with Comey is a nut job. Ask Ly’n ted how effective Trump’s labeling is. NUT JOB COMEY!!!

      I have been wondering who could actually go after FBI and CIA criminals. I am praying that Rosenstien knows and the special counsel is who can do it.. The die is cast. If the SC and Deputy AG are crooked there is going to be HELL to pay. If they follow the law justice will occur. The special counsel from what I can tell has the power to clean out the sewer. The only question now is will he do it, or not.

    An unwelcome scenario presents itself: That there may be a method to the madness of drumming up calls for impeachment to a fevered pitch. That Comey may just try to play John Dean, and attempt to bring the President down during his Congressional testimony by backing up the memo. And that the Republicans will then declare that they have been forced “by the evidence” to start talking impeachment.

    A decent gauge of current Republican thinking is here:
    http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/447805/two-big-trumprussia-scoops-one-dubious-one-troubling

    I don’t like this scenario, not at all, as anyone here who is familiar with my posts knows. As a matter of fact, please, somebody talk me out of it quick! What will be the political dynamic if Comey backs up the memo? Is the country going to allow accusations by a disgraced former FBI Director to bring down a sitting president?

    To me it looks like that’s exactly what the swamp creatures are going for. As if the progression from Rosenstein’s recommendation, Comey’s firing, and the leak of the memo were orchestrated. Not much of a stretch at all, presuming that the swamp creatures can count Comey, whose career at the FBI was doomed anyway.

      Well that’s a nice lib fantasy but President Trump is not Richard Nixon, who was a weak man who never fought back. Whatever contact President Trump had with Nut Job Comey, a known snake, is well and legally documented. President Trump didn’t build up a multi-billion dollar world-wide real estate empire by being stupid. Comey lies at his own peril. If Comey tries to lie about President Trump, the only one that will go down is Comey. Count on it.

        I’m no liberal, and my scenario is no fantasy. Comey has painted himself in a corner again. If he confirms the memo he is lying; if he denies it, he is dissing a lot of folks, beginning with the guy who went public as the leak. The Special Counsel may provide him an out to neither confirm or deny, I don’t know. We’ll see.
