Trump tells Russians that he does not hold Comey in high regard

NY Times:

President Called Comey ‘Nut Job’ in Oval Office Meeting

  • President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office that firing James B. Comey had relieved “great pressure” on him.
  • “He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said of Mr. Comey, according to a White House document.
What is the source of this leak?  It is unlikely that the Russians or Trump gave this story to the NY Times.  That suggest that Trump has a traitor on his staff that was in the meeting.  Since it was a relatively small group, he may want to have them all submit to a lie detector test about their communications with someone who gave the story to the media.

There is still a lack of a crime in saying you don't like the FBI director and that he was becoming a political pest.  If you see pictures of Comey with Obama, he appears to be laughing and enjoying himself, but around Trump, he is skulking around trying to blend in with the drapes.  The body language appears telling.  As do some of the leaks coming out of the FBI.  Comey was a man who did not have the President's trust.
