My guess is everyone ChristineHoard named, plus KellyAnne Conway and Corey Lewandowski; He was Trump's campaign manager from Jan. 2015 to June 2016, and Conway has been with Trump since 2016.

Any thoughts on who this "person of interest"  (we all know what that phrase means) is inside the white house top staff?  If not Trump himself I'll go with Bannon or Jared. It was reported it's someone there now so that leaves Flynn out.  Time to lawyer up, staffers.  How loyal does one want to be to their boss if jail is a possibility?

So Trump brags and tells the Russians...the Russians .. the real reason that he fired Comey and then on the same day has Old Spicer, Huckabee and later Pence go out and lie to the American public about it.

Was Pence in the Oval office meeting with the Ruskies?  Hard to tell from the photos as they were all courtesy of Russia.  It was not long after that Pence came out with the story that it was the Assistant AG who essentially fired Comey.

Trump just said that he could only speak for himself on the subject of collusion between his campaign and Russia during the election.

Maybe Trump gave them a copy of his taping....the other alternative, where the Russians were in there taping, is scary. Bet no one saw them bring in a taping device.

 

It's probably still there given how incompetent they all are.

Trump needs to turn Fox off and start watching The Americans on Fx.  Then remember that Putin was in the KGB during the Reagan years, if I am not mistaken.

Taping devices, including most phones are very small these days.  Not to mention transmitters to a nearby embassy.

Occured to me.  How does Putin have a "transcript?"  Did someone record the meeting?  Or does he mean that one of the two Russians prepared a memorandum of what was said?  Leaving out the part where classified information was relayed.

The Rosenbergs got the chair.

John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald were shot ( I still can't believe I actually saw the latter occur live on CBS--

The rest of the Booth co-conspirators were hung. Just like we hung those two guys from In Cold Blood in Kansas.

I know. LOL. In his case, something lengthy, like hanging.........

Weren't the Rosenbergs tried and executed for passing classified information to the Soviets? Donald Trump has made a mockery of executive privilege, as he has debased and degraded the presidency.

At minimum should make for cozy dinner conversation later this week when he is in Israel, as he tries to explain why he outed their secret source and operation

I would volunteer for firing squad duty if it comes to that.........

Interesting conundrum.  Who do we trust less to give us an accurate summary?  Putin or Trump or a Trump surrogate?

Putin offers transcript of Trump meeting with Lavrov

 

What a generous man! I guess during the McCarthy/HUAC blacklisting hearings, the accused could have contacted Stalin, who could have written a nice note to Senator McCarthy, stating that the accused were not party members!  (Aren't Russians generous and selfless?)
