Jason Chaffetz will formally ask for the document in 3,2,1...
I'm not sure that it matters to anyone anymore, but these unending threads are becoming (have become) echo chambers of toxic, destructive insanity.

For anyone still on this site who treasures the truth, please take a step back from these kinds of threads and think critically. Review the quote above (that was quoted directly from the NYT piece):

1. Notes taken by who?

2. Circulated by who?

3. Who at NYT vertified the document? Verified that it is the official account of the meeting? Verified that it was released by the WH AS the official document?

4. Which official read the quotations to the Times?

5. Which second official confirmed the broad outlines of the discussion?

6. Who at NYT reached out to the WH for official comment?

7. What other news sources received a copy of this "official account of the meeting"?

Think critically and keep your wits about you.

The rest of you...........you're like a flesh eating organism. Carry on.

Indeed - and there ARE transcripts (one with the code secret disclosure; one sanitized and more widely distributed) of that meeting which the Special Counsel can subpoena - unless Trump fires him, of course. So, there continues to be "mounting evidence" of an "intent" to obstruct justice.

Trump will be removed whether you think its fake news or not. After he touched Comey, someone in the FBI/CIA decided its over for him. it was gon end regardless, but Trump sped it up.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/19/u...omey.html?_r=0

Can anyone actually believe that Trump had ANY other reason to fire Comey than to squelch the Russian investigation? And make this gloating statement directly to the Russians?
Pence should invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Trump from power while he is traveling overseas. Trump has turned the Federal government into something resembling the government of a 3rd world banana republic complete with installing family members, and handing out jobs based on loyalty rather than qualifications.

If true, there is a reason sources would not be directly named.

Unfortunately trump gave credence to these type of stories himself when he started talking about the "leakers"

validating that they are happening and there is at the very least some truths involved within them.

It's all one big ****show at this point.

Wouldn't this be great! Trump lands in Saudi Arabia to find out he's no longer President!

It's unfortunate you haven't been able to keep up. ALL of your questions were answered DAYS AGO. Google can be very useful.

Everything being reported is TRUE. Whether any of this results in prosecution, indictment, and conviction is a separate matter.

If he does this, it should wait until Trump is back on US soil. God knows what secrets he might spill if he feels threatened.
