So let me get this straight - a man too chicken to be in the same room with the FBI is going to lead us to victory over North Korea because he is such a tough macho guy...  Seems legit.

Trump prefers safe spaces, like the orange snowflake he is.

He's not a coward. It's just that he has bone spurs.

He would only attend if there were a guarantee of his supporters attending and being in the majority.

FBI can't impeach him.  Only Congress can do that.  And I'm not sure about arresting him, either.   Seems like they should have the power to do so, but he's their boss, and in any case history implies that his successor would pardon him, so it's all probably moot.

Whatever you need to tell yourself, chief.

Comey, who Trump fired in May and whom the president has called a "leaker," could be there, as could Mueller, Comey's predecessor and now the special counsel overseeing the FBI investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible coordination with the Trump campaign.
Andrew McCabe, the deputy director of the FBI, will be the master of ceremonies. Trump has claimed that McCabe received money from Hillary Clinton.


So a room full of people he's pissed off and doesn't have the nerve to face. So Presidential.

That's strong leadership right there.

they can certainly arrest his underlings (everyone below VP, although it may be possible to arrest a sitting VP)

and we don't know if we can indict a sitting president, it's never been done and the only other time its come up, the prosecutor backed and put him down as an unindicted co-conspirator

somedude210: we don't know if we can indict a sitting president


We absolutely can, it's just never been done. What the Framers wanted for a President who committed high crimes was for the legislature to impeach, but we aren't going to do that because our country is broken. So Mueller is pretty much our only shot.

If the President murdered a hooker on national television and said "Suck it, America!" I would hope we'd have the guts to slap the cuffs on him.

I recall one President walking into the den of the opposing party for a multi-hour discussion about his healthcare plan. He seemed pretty unafraid of going toe to toe.

Too much of a coward to fire people personally, now too chickenshiat to officially hire them too.
Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States!
 
2017-09-27 04:06:16 PM  
Has anyone called Trump a coward yet?  Because he's a coward, and it bears repeating.

Yes. He will lead us to victory from a yuge victory bunker in an undisclosed location of victory, deep under victory.

Nah. If that was the case he'd be there with a goddamn bullhorn.

It's getting close to the one year anniversary of Comey dropping the e-mail bombshell.  I remember that day well- saw the news first on FARK ("Surprise! ") and got such an awful sick feeling in the pit of my stomach.  Part of the reason Comey did what he did, allegedly, was this NY based "Trumplandia" faction of the FBI that would have caused trouble if he had sat on the e-mail info.  I'd love to know if any of these "Trumplandia" mofos are feeling regrets after watching all the disrespect towards their agency from that asshole.  Supposedly most of the agents were not happy about the Comey firing, and somebody talked Twitler out of visiting FBI HQ soon after.

Someone should give him a physical. The bone spurs have filled the inside of his skull and killed the brain cells.

The implication isn't that the FBI is going to impeach him, but that the FBI agents are working to support his impeachment, in the sense that the results of the FBI's investigations and their support of Mueller's investigation could lead to Trump's impeachment.

Even if a sitting President can be indicted successfully, tried, and convicted, he won't be removed from office unless Congress impeaches, tries and convicts him. So in that sense the end game of the FBI's investigation is impeachment.

I think we should all pause and take a moment to absorb this reality.

The current President of the United States (a horrific, preposterous toilet of a man) has to avoid an FBI ceremony because he's so crooked he's likely to have an awkward run-in with people INVESTIGATING HIM FOR CRIMES AGAINST THE STATE.

Our president doesn't feel comfortable around cops...
 
2017-09-27 04:32:02 PM  
Why would you ever WANT trump there.
Like inviting Don Corleone...

If I was Trump I'd be suspicious of anything the FBI actually DID invite me to b/c it's probably a sting.

Read it like a Trump tweet. "FBI can't impeach, must listen to boss (Trump)!" *ignores followup tweets explaining no one said the FBI would impeach him and he's an orange turd*

As usual you miss the point. Nobody thinks they are any sort of threat to Emperor Hirocheeto. That's the point.

The reason he is not going is that he is a special snowflake that is too big a pussy to face a crowd that might not cheer loud enough.
