    .@realDonaldTrump: "Nancy Pelosi is a horrible person. And she wanted to impeach a long time ago when she said, I pray for the president. She doesn't pray. She may pray but she prays for the opposite. But I doubt she prays at all."

    Trump praised Devin Nunes, whom phone records showed to be on the phone with Lev Parnas and Rudy Giuliani, who then contacted The Hill's John Solomon, right before the smear campaign against ousted ex-U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.

    Trump: "They were trying to overthrow the government of the United States," referring to himself as that government.

    He says that he may never have found if he hadn't fired Comey, an act that Mueller found met the elements of obstruction if DOJ policy didn't forbid charging it.

    Trump Opens His Bizarre Victory Speech by Admitting He Obstructed Justice
    “Had I not fired James Comey, it’s possible I wouldn’t even be standing here right now.”


    In a rambling, seething victory speech to mark his acquittal in the Senate’s impeachment trial, President Donald Trump appeared to admit that he attempted to obstruct an FBI investigation into his campaign by firing the agency’s director.

    Before railing against the “evil” process, the “dirty cops,” “failed presidential candidate” Mitt Romney, and “horrible person” Nancy Pelosi, Trump brought up one of the most incendiary moments of his presidency: the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

    “Had I not fired James Comey, it’s possible I wouldn’t even be standing here right now,” the president said at the outset of his remarks. The stunning statement appeared to admit, once again, that he removed Comey in order to obstruct the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

    A quick refresher: During a May 2017 interview on NBC, Trump contradicted the White House’s initial account into Comey’s firing by saying that the decision would have come “regardless” of a Justice Department recommendation. In the same interview, Trump revealed that he had asked Comey whether he was under investigation—an admission many interpreted as an attempt to obstruct justice. The president has since backpedaled on that admission a number of times.

    On Thursday, that alternating narrative appeared to land once again on the apparent confession that he did indeed attempt to obstruct justice—and that he viewed Comey as a lethal threat to his presidency.

    And in case people are not familiar with this wonderful part of American history. This is nothing new. There used to be "trials" like this regularly in the South with predetermined acquittals of obviously guilty people when whites were accused of harming and killing black people. Shocking to all of you I'm sure. Happy Black History Month!
    About the subpoena thing: don't be so sure. The next Trump crony that gets subpoena, we will see.
    The BOLD part: Maybe in some other forum. Not here.
