Wait. Wait, wait, wait - you're telling me that That Man is, on record, admitting to the Russians that he fired Comey because of the investigation?
Let's take Putin up on his offer to supply the tapes of the conversation. Please.
(As an aside, I am beginning to wonder if Vladimir Vladimirovich has decided to one-up his achievement helping get That Man in office by then getting him out of it. Putin giveth, Putin taketh away. Now that would be some kind of macho BS demonstration of power.)
