Not that it matters but I never fired James Comey because of Russia! The Corrupt Mainstream Media loves to keep pushing that narrative, but they know it is not true!

That tweet was from this morning.
Of course, the problem is that it is ridiculously easy to prove that it’s a lie.
Remember this from just about a year ago?
Pres. Trump on firing Comey: “I said, you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story.” https://t.co/hxqM1LZI0e

Or what about the time that Trump bragged to the Russians about why he fired Comey.
Courtesy of NYT:
President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office this month that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved “great pressure” on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting.
“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”
Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.”
And then, just today, we learn that Trump wanted Russia mentioned in the official letter explaining why Comey was fired:
According to McCabe’s memo, Rosenstein indicated to him that he was initially asked to reference the Russia investigation in his own memo on Comey. But the final version didn’t include discussion of Russia and focused instead on the Clinton email case.
I mean come on, right?
This is the problem with habitual liars.
They cannot stop lying, even when there is ample evidence to prove what they say is a lie.
Nobody should believe anything, and I mean ANYTHING, that this guy says. EVER!
