DAY 115 and fuckin' whateveah! HAPPY MOTHER RUSSIA DAY!

Welcome to SPLINKERNEWSMAX! The faux news agency that isn't afraid to speak the truth, after making sure no one else gets in trouble for speaking it. SplinkerNewsMax is not owned by any major media corporation, although we are willing to entertain offers. 


DAY 115Trump has still not released his tax returns.  And Russia probably isn't the reason.  

RUSSIAGATE: Look.  We may never prove that Trump colluded with Russia in attacking the 2016 election. I am even willing to say that there was no collusion (there was).  But there is no doubt, whatsoever, that Trump is engaged in a desperate attempt to cover up wrongdoing.  Maybe he really isn't afraid that the six or seven investigations into his campaign won't turn up evidence that he helped Putin ruin our country and then the two of them pinky swore never to tell anyone.  But he IS afraid that some of these investigations are going to uncover wrongdoing.  

As everyone knows by now, the president stated, on national television, that the investigation into his collusion with Russia was on his mind when he decided to fire FBI Director Comey. 
We don't know why he is committing obstruction of justice.  We just know that he is.  This is a major difference between the Trump and Nixon administrations.  With Nixon, we knew the crime that he was covering up.  That made impeachment a lot easier, and resignation all but certain.  Here, we only have the cover up.  So, you should expect to keep seeing this failed proctology student's face in the forseeable future.

Still, there's quite a bit of possible crimes that Trump is worried about, in addition to Russia. 
 HERE TODAY, COMEY TOMORROW
In 48 hours, we heard:
1. Trump decided to fire Comey after reading a memo from the Deputy DOJ Director and on the recommendation of AG Sessions.  This story was confirmed by Sean Spicer, Sarah Huckleberry, and VP Pence.

2.  After all three of his surrogates put what's left of their reputations on the line, Trump came on TV and called them all liars, by saying he was determined to fire Comey, no matter what who recommended what.

3.  He capped it off by confessing to obstruction of justice, by saying that "in fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, you know, this Russia made up story is an excuse by the democrats..."  I know obstruction of justice is a specific legal conclusion, but Republicans are fooling themselves if they think they can just keep their mouths shut and this will go away.  

4. Then Trump attempted to intimidate Comey by warning him he might or might not have tapes of the conversations between the two.  He either has the tapes, in which he must turn them over to Congress, or he destroyed the tapes, in which case he's committed another crime, or there were never any tapes, in which case he simply tried to scare the former director of the FBI.  Let's see a show of hands.  How many people think Trump can successfully intimidate James Comey?


  

Comey declined to testify behind closed doors after the Senate Intelligence Committee asked him over to gossip.  But no one believes Comey won't be appearing soon. He's either waiting for a subpoena, or he is waiting for the tears on his pillow to dry and will probably insist that he will testify, but in public.  



Okay.  That's it for this morning.  But I want to talk about some more stuff.  I'll be back later for a SPLINKERNEWSMAX Special Afternoon edition!

That's it!
Good morning!
