5/17: The Comey Memo & Trump’s Stupidity Does Not Excuse His Criminality

May 17, 2017

Donald Trump told James Comey, that he hoped that “he could let this go” with regards to the investigation of Flynn. James Comey is releasing information on Trump. Are we close to impeachment or removal from office? Why there is more information coming from Comey. Putin offers to release a transcript of Trump’s meeting with Russian officials. Secretary Tillerson, wants none of it. Did Trump out an Israeli intelligence operative who is undercover with ISIS. Mitch MCconnell, does not care if Trump revealed intelligence,  Ross Douthat’s bizarre defense of Trump’s criminality and Donald Trump whines about how he is being treated.

On The Fun Half: California charter schools win. Philadelphia elects a very progressive DA. Jesse Waters, in an extremely stupid way downplays the Comey scandal. Tucker Carlson’s hilarious non-coverage of the election story. Donald Trump plagiarizes Legally Blond. Erdogan’s bodyguards attack protestors in Washington DC and your calls and IMS.

Cast: Sam Seder @samseder, Michael Brooks @_michaelbrooks, Matt Lech, @mattlech and Kelly Carey, @kellycarey.
