I woke up to read my morning headlines and this was there:

Putin offers to provide Congress with details of Trump disclosures to Russian envoys
MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday he would be willing to provide the U.S. Congress a record of President Trump’s meeting with top Russian envoys, possibly offering new details on the disclosures of reportedly highly classified intelligence information.

The remarkable offer for the Kremlin to share evidence with U.S. oversight committees came with the caveat that the request for the transcript would have to come from the Trump administration. The Kremlin has denied reports that Trump shared classified secrets last week with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russia’s ambassador to the United States during an Oval Office meeting. But the full extent of Trump’s comments to the Russian envoys has not been made public.


Putin -- VLADAMIR PUTIN -- is willing to vouch for tRump. Russia is now deciding what is and is not highly classified information.

And if that isn't shocking enough, there is this nugget from from AFP:




"provide a recording"

I had speculated that this was the case when I saw that no American news outlets were present when tRump met with the Russian Foreign Minister and the Ambassador. Now Russia, and only Russia, is vouching for the current White house occupier. I am sure that Flynn, Manafort, and Carter page have to know that they were recorded as well. They have been caught all along and trust them or not, Russia just gave a big tell. The White house is being blackmailed by a hostile country.

In the meantime, we have former FBI director James Comey took notes and has receipts.
According to the notes written by Comey following a February meeting with the president, Trump brought up the counterintelligence investigation into Flynn and urged Comey to drop the probe in the wake of the national security adviser’s resignation.

The conversation between Trump and Comey took place after a national security meeting. The president asked to speak privately to the FBI director, and the others left the room, according to the Comey associates, who, like other officials, spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to reveal internal discussions.

“I hope you can let this go,’’ Trump said, according to the Comey notes, which were described by the associates. Comey’s written account of the meeting is two pages long and highly detailed, the associates said.


Let's see, who would you trust? Comey and our American press or Putin? it looks like his notes are going to be subpoenaed. This is happening.

Buckle up for hump day.

If the GOP does nothing, I'm kind of scared about what could happen next.

The GOP Deputy Whip called for an independent investigator this morning on CNN.

That is good news!

There is a shift happening today.
"Look, it's inevitable now and inescapable. I thought he was going to have to do this anyway," Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said on Fox News of Comey testifying. "But given what we read yesterday in the newspaper, Director Comey, or former Director Comey, will have to testify before Congress, I imagine before the Judiciary Committee, and he's going to have to turn over these notes and anything else that he kept, and we'll go from there."

Rubio added in an interview that Comey's writings are "relevant and should be looked at. ... And I anticipate that will happen, one way or the other."

More news:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Wednesday called for ousted FBI Director James Comey to testify in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee in a public setting.

“I think we need to hear from him as soon as possible in public to respond to the issues that have been raised in recent days,” McConnell said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

Al Gore's 2nd biggest mistake.

I suspect Trump must think somewhere in his calcified mind that he is independent.

Yes, and the special counsel is someone whom I expect to get to the bottom of things. If the Justice Department interferes, Trump will create a HUGE firestorm.
