While White House staffers solidified the details of Trump’s first foreign trip, sensitive information apparently poured out of the administration like a sieve to major US news outlets regarding the president’s handling of the former FBI director and the ongoing law enforcement investigation into his campaign.

US President Donald Trump

Giving Comey the boot ameliorated “great pressure,” Trump told Russian officials during a May 10 meeting in the White House, at least according to a version of the events leaked to the New York Times.

While speaking with Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Trump reportedly said, “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off … I’m not under investigation.”

Presumably, the pressure was lifted because Trump had just fired the “crazy” Comey, who he also allegedly described as a “real nut job.”

The mainstream media have jumped on the as-yet-anonymous reports as additional fuel for their assertions that Trump ousted Comey for investigating his ties with Russia. They have, however, also jumped in with both feet on almost any anonymous story linking this administration with Russia, spreading tales of electrical grids being hacked and breathlessly repeating reports “proving” Russian interference in US elections, many of which have been found to be totally without merit.
