Trump, Comey, Flynn – Who is in Trouble?

Trump, Comey, Flynn – this week continues to cause people to talk about the White House and question what is happening in the US. First, we found out on Monday that President Donald Trump had leaked classified information to two of his Russian guests. Yesterday we learned that former FBI Director, James Comey, alleges that Trump tried to shut down the investigation into his former National Security Adviser, General Michael Flynn.

“I Hope You Can Let This Go”

This latest controversy involves the possibility that Trump asked the former FBI director during a February meeting to end the investigation into Michael Flynn, whose ties to Russia are currently being scrutinized by the bureau. According to Comey, during the meeting he asked everyone, except for Comey, to leave the White House office. Following this, Comey reported Trump said, “I hope you can let this go.” Comey wrote a detailed memo of the conversation shortly after the meeting. This suggests that the president has tried to directly influence the Justice Department and the FBI investigation into links between Trump’s associates and Russia. Late yesterday Representative Jason Chaffetz, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, demanded that the FBI turn over all memoranda, notes, summaries and recordings made between Trump and Comey. He said that such documents would “raise questions as to whether the president attempted to influence or impede.”

Comey has said he wrote the conversation with the president immediately after the meeting. The meeting took place the day after Flynn resigned, according to two people who read the memo. This document was part of a paper trail Comey created documenting what he perceived as the president’s improper efforts to influence a continuing investigation. An FBI agent’s contemporaneous notes are widely held up in court as credible evidence of conversations.

In the document, according to Comey, Trump said, “I hope you can see your way to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.” In a statement, the White House denied the version of events in the memo.

During a speech to the graduating class at the United States Coast Guard Academy today the President said, “you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight.” He went on to say, “Never, never, never give up. Things will work out just fine. Look at the way I have been treated lately, especially by the media. No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down, you can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams.”

Somewhat out of character, news sources reported today that the President has not tweeted in more than 22 hours leading them to question if perhaps he has retained legal counsel – who have perhaps told him to stop tweeting.

Trump, Comey, Flynn – are they all innocent?
