Hahaha, this is excellent, Lavrov taking the piss about Comey:
Are we back to the good times?
I can never get used to a President speakin' like that, lol. It's great stuff.
Jeff Sessions is very sharp and his area down through the years was immigration and preventing not just democrats but more importantly the 2007 effort by Bush and the Gang of Eight.
If you read his letter to Bush as linked above, you will see that it was the memo sent to Sessions by the assistant director, which could not be ignored and he had to go. It highlights that past directors and assistant directors, including Eric Holder and Clinton people basically said that he had to go.
Latest from Bhadrakumar. He reckons Trump is now finally jostling up for Russian rapprochement.
Trump ignores status quo apologists to engage Russia
This week's visit by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to the White House is raising expectations for July's historic first meeting between Trump and Putin
By M.K. BHADRAKUMAR
US President Donald Trump’s decision Tuesday to sack FBI Director James Comey probably had nothing to do with the investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the November election. But its timing – as Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov flew into Washington for Trump’s first meeting with a top Kremlin official – was highly symbolic.
It conveyed Trump’s confidence that the narrative in Washington Beltway, which so far frustrated his grand design to open a new chapter in US-Russia relations in a spirit of constructive engagement, has changed in his favour.
Time will tell whether his judgment is impeccable. The odds are that it is. After holding the levers of power for 100 days, Trump would know there isn’t a shred of evidence that can implicate him. Importantly, Russians feel so too.
Therefore, Trump has retrieved his road map from the attic. The presence of Henry Kissinger in the Oval Office for an unscheduled meeting with Trump just before Lavrov walked in – accompanied by the famous “Russian spy” Ambassador Sergey Kislayk – has been a deliberate ‘curtain raiser’. Kissinger has longstanding personal equations with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, and of course the grey cardinal of US diplomacy had engineered the era of détente with the Soviet Union.
The first meeting between Trump and Putin in July in Hamburg promises to be historic. Lavrov’s upbeat remarks after talks with his US counterpart Rex Tillerson and the call on the president in Washington on Wednesday raise high expectations about the meeting in July.
Trump and Putin propose to simply pole vault over the minefields that former President Barack Obama desperately prepared in the last several weeks in office aimed at blocking any audacious moves to dismantle his containment strategy against Russia.

That's the best news I've read in a while. The timing of Comey's firing with Lavrov in town never crossed my mind, very good. Trump seems to like these double plays- the Syria strike with Xi in town was another.
Trump firing Comey amounts to 'high crimes', says Harvard constitutional law professor
Who just happens to be a Jew.
He should be more interested in finding out whether Manchelle still has his balls. I wonder what would happen if he went through an airport scan.
Nice gearbox Manchelle.
Lock him up !
This might have won it for Trump.
Its not really ,just look at a small example of the fanboys here, right wing neo nazi racists to a tee .As for a few of the others there must be something seriously lacking in the cop on department if they cant see this moron for what he is.
The independent.co.uk is fighting a mighty battle against trump every day without fail the top articles are about him. They Have quite a few articles on English news even though it's a boring fecking place and I did see something on brexit which is to do with England leaving the eu cant see why that should bother Americans . If the independent can manage to change their president I bet it will be nothing but stories about brexit if they get the president they want.
The US establishment/media are going nuts re the whole Russiagate bull shit, but there's still no evidence
Putin has even offered to provide the transcripts of a recent meeting between Trump and Lavrov, to prove Trump disclosed no classified info.
What a mental situation.
You are not seriously believing that Putin will deliver the REAL transcript to compromise his stooge in the White House ?
I am glad there is now an investigator. Let him ascertain the truth. Let him find out who gave the order to shut down the police investigation of Seth Rich being murdered aND let him ask hillary why she gave the Russians our uranium.
Trump needs to get 3 more special prosecutors to quiz obama, the Clinton mafia of the past 30 years and all those deaths and one to root out the videos that exist on practically every important figure.
Have a pizza and watch a porn with Donald and Ivanka !
They are going to push this narrative until he's out. Lies repeated enough times start to take on a life all their own.
