      What I see is an intelligent, gifted man expressing his gratitude for the teaching, the example set, and the hope shared by a man so extraordinary the peoples of earth will continue to speak his name with loving respect, for all time. 🙏🏼🌏👁👁🕯

      I think someone as profoundly sane and compassionate and intelligent as our President Obama is a treasure and anyone that would not get lost in a hug with this man or his wife is oblivious as far as I am concerned. When I see the photos and films of the Obamas hugging people I get a vicarious hug myself and feel renewed, uplifted and ready to face the next day with resolve and joy.

    All of a sudden these guys can’t answer the questions, they will answer them in a closes hearing. This tells me that Trump did asked them to interfere in the Russia investigation, but they want to protect Trump.

        Yep, but then we also know that he cares nothing about clothes. He has said in the past that he has too much to do to think about what he is going to wear. Most of us here can list most of what he wears because we stalk him and we pay attention. Remember that checked shirt that he wore all of the time for casual wear?

    WRAY IS A PARTNER AT LAW FIRM REPRESENTING RUSSIA STATE OIL ROSNEFT.
    Trump announced Wray’s nomination for FBI director via a tweet that lies about “impeccable credentials.”
    In what possible world is Wray’s connections to Russian BIg Oil appropriate?
    Trump’s collusion with Russia on the election, sanctions on EXXON/Rosneft deal (and his shares in that oil) are being investigated.
    STOP Trump from hiring Putin people. This must end.

  37. June 7, 2017 at 2:32 pm

    (pp 4-5) When the door by the grandfather clock closed, and we were alone, the
    President began by saying, “I want to talk about Mike Flynn.” Flynn had resigned
    the previous day.

    (p 6) On the morning of March 30, the President called me at the FBI. He
    described the Russia investigation as “a cloud” that was impairing his ability to act
    on behalf of the country.

    He said he had nothing to do with Russia, had not been
    involved with hookers in Russia, and had always assumed he was being recorded
    when in Russia.

    He asked what we could do to “lift the cloud.”

      Grab them by the Pus*y didn’t stop them from voting for Trump.
      Russian Interference they discard and many of them now Love Putin & welcomed the Hackings.

      Will they consider Comey’s testimony as he said/she said because there were no witnesses? I do not think Comey’s hearing will change anything, even though we know there is anxiety and fear in the WH and an allied group will be airing tv ads to throw dirt on Comey.

      • June 7, 2017 at 5:00 pm

        I’ve been seeing television ads sponsored that group — America First Policies. The most recent was on talking about how successful 45’s recent trip was and giving the impression that he accomplished so much…moving toward making us safer. This ad along with the “thank Republicans for AHCA”.

        For a second I considered that it may have been an ad to support Handel in the GA06 special election…except I don’t recall seeing Handel anywhere in the ad. Just praises for 45.

        While I think a lot of incriminating information will come out of Comey’s testimony, at the end of the day, CEB, I also wonder how much of a difference it will make. After all, we see evidence of obstruction. We see evidence of conflicts of interest. We see evidence of perjury. We see violations of the Emoluments Clause. We see indications of a person in the Oval Office with questionable mental capacity and questionable psychological stability. Yet, we’re still wondering if he will be impeached, or forced to resign. Besides that, we’re wondering if he and his circle of criminals will ever be convicted and punished for their crimes.

    We got how GOP’s fave “unmasking” distraction talking point works on the 20th explanation.
    Now would Rubio and Cotton care to UNMASK what was said at their dinner with Trump last night, and in what possible way
    it was appropriate for them to meet privately with Trumputin on the eve of the Senate hearing — given their roles in it?
    Trumputin breaking protocols while hamstringing everyone else has become predictable.
    When are we going to spell it out for Donald at these hearings that he is not above the law?

    CHECK THIS OUT: 45, aka Twitler, supporters are calling for Muslim internment camps

    …These calls for internment camps of Muslims weren’t made at neo-Nazi rallies, they were made on national television, in widely distributed newspapers, and on syndicated radio shows by men and women who actually have the ear of the President of the United States. These horrifying calls for internment camps weren’t made by people with white hoods on their heads, but by truly influential men and women in business attire. …

    Puerto Rico’s government is banking on a push for statehood to solve the structural issues that led to its financial crisis.

    Puerto Ricans will vote Sunday to decide the territory’s status.

    If statehood wins, as expected, the island will enact what’s known as the Tennessee Plan, an avenue to accession by which U.S. territories send a congressional delegation to demand to be seated in Washington.

    Statehood remains a long shot as many Republicans are wary of adding a 51st state that could add two Democratic senators and seven Democratic electors to the Electoral College.

    Referring to President Obama’s wonderful Montreal speech, instead of anything trump…..I always notice the literary allusions President Obama uses in his speech. (occupational hazard of an English professor). In the Montreal speech he said: “people are afraid the center cannot hold.” this comes from W.B. Yeats’ poem, The Second Coming, which was written immediately following World War I when people realized the old order had passed away, and they didn’t know what was going to replace it. Two lines are : “Things fall apart, the center cannot hold.” The entire poem is filled with powerful imagery, and in the way of poetry says so much.

    I loved having a literate, well educated, knowledgeable president for eight years. It was just a thrill to watch and listen to him yesterday. What a gift to the world he is.

        Was it just a year ago some of us were in D.C. so full of optimism and hope? I loved that trip, and memories of it have sustained me during this year.
