“I don’t remember exactly what the president said,” McMaster said in an interview on ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos.” “The gist of the conversation was that the president feels as if he is hamstrung in his ability to work with Russia to find areas of cooperation because this has been obviously so much in the news. And that was the intention of that portion of that conversation.”

McMaster refused to reveal details of the conversation, which he said was privileged and confidential.

McMaster sought to reframe the conversation between Trump and the Russian officials after a Washington Post report revealed that Trump shared code-word classified information with the Russians in that meeting. The New York Times also reported that Trump called Comey “crazy, a real nut job,” in the meeting and said that his firing lifted “great pressure.”.......................

1. There would literally be no safe place on this planet for the SS to hide a prez Hillary or Obama

if they had done this.

The deplorables would find them and deal with them.

But Trump does it, no outrage, nothing.

FUCKING REMARKABLE

2. Sounds like McMaster is working for Kellyanne Conway now.

Or maybe auditioning for a show on RT?

3. How the hell

does someone throw away years of service with honor to prop up a man with absolutely no honor at all. Hell he just helped make the case that Trump fired Comey to relieve pressure so he could do what he wants to with Russians. Jesus he's intent on getting back channeled by Putin.

4. McM doesn't remember exactly what T said, unlike Comey who has it all written down nearly verbatim.

5. He remembers

and since he signed the dotted line, he has no choice but to bullshit a talking point excuse or resign the position.
