TRUMP TWEETS VIDEO OF DEMS CALLING FOR COMEY’S OUSTER
They’re mad because it was Trump who made the call and nothing more

As mainstream media spins the firing of FBI Director James Comey as indefensible, President Trump trolled Democrats yet again by tweeting out a video of numerous liberals calling for Comey’s ouster weeks before.
“The Democrats should be ashamed!” Trump tweeted. “This is a disgrace! #DrainTheSwamp.”
The video continues with former Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) being asked on MSNBC if he would like to see Comey fired.
“Of course,” Reid replied.
Sen. Chris Murphy and Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook also remarked that they would like to see Comey step down.
“It’s hard to be Director of such an important institution when that trust is no longer there,” Mook said.
Liberal darling Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is seen next explaining at a conference her disdain for Comey.
“All I can tell you is the FBI Director has no credibility,” Waters said.
The video rolls on with Sen. Patrick Leahy, The Wall Street Journal, former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, and even MSNBC host Chuck Todd acknowledging the damage Comey inflicted to the American people’s confidence in the FBI.
The video even shows quotes from House Minority Leaders Chuck Shumer (D-NY) and Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) tearing into Comey, saying that “maybe he’s not right for the job,” and that they “do not have confidence in him any longer.”
The video concludes with quotes from numerous Democratic congressmen giving similar damning statements about Comey before the #DrainTheSwamp hashtag flashes on the screen and fades out.
The fact that Democrats are now comparing Trump’s firing of Comey to Nixon’s Watergate scandal illustrates that they are only upset about Comey’s ouster because it was Trump who made the call and nothing more.
FLASHBACK: RUSSIA INTERFERED TO HELP DEMS IN 1968 & 1984
Ted Kennedy ASKED Russians to intervene in 1984!
by Jerome Corsi
WASHINGTON, D.C. – If the Democrats in Congress are serious about Russian interference in U.S. elections, a look in the mirror is recommended.
For anyone familiar with the McCarthy era, it is mind-boggling to hear the Democrats (who have supported Russia since the 1917 Revolution) engaging in “red-baiting” against President Trump.
In 1968, the Kremlin decided that the Republican presidential candidate that year, Richard Nixon, was “profoundly anti-Soviet” and must be prevented from becoming president.
Then-Russian Ambassador the United States Anatoly Dobrynin, as retold in his 1995 memoir “In Confidence,” was ordered by Moscow to offer Nixon’s Democratic Party rival, Hubert H. Humphrey, Jr., “any conceivable help in his election, including financial aid.”
According to an article published in the New York Times on Jan. 7, 2017, the KGB in the then-Soviet Union “fabricated a bogus F.B.I. report that Senator Henry M. Jackson, a strong critic of the Soviet Union who tried unsuccessfully in the 1970s to secure the Democratic presidential nomination, was a homosexual and attended gay sex clubs with Richard N. Perle, another anti-Communist hawk who was loathed by Moscow.”
In 1984, then Senator Ted Kennedy, then a Democratic Party presidential contender, asked Russia to intervene in the presidential election to help defeat Ronald Reagan.
On Aug. 28, 2009, Forbes published an article written by Peter Robinson, a research fellow at the Hoover Institute at Stanford University and a former White House speechwriter, exposing how Sen. Ted Kennedy in 1984 had reached out to Moscow, asking the Soviet Union’s help to defeat Ronald Reagan.
Evidently, in 1991, Tim Sebastian, a reporter for the London Times came across a memorandum composed in 1983 by Victor Chebrikov, the top man at the KGB, the memorandum was addressed to Yuri Andropov, the top man in the entire USSR. The subject: Sen. Edward Kennedy.
“On 9-10 May of this year,” the May 14 memorandum explained, “Sen. Edward Kennedy’s close friend and trusted confidant [John] Tunney was in Moscow.” (Tunney was Kennedy’s law school roommate and a former Democratic senator from California.)
“The senator charged Tunney to convey the following message, through confidential contacts, to the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Y. Andropov,” the memo continued.
The Forbes story concluded that Kennedy’s message was simple.
“He proposed an unabashed quid pro quo,” Forbes reported.
Kennedy would lend Andropov a hand in dealing with President Reagan, Forbes explained, and in return, the Soviet leader would lend the Democratic Party a hand in challenging Reagan in the 1984 presidential election.
“The only real potential threats to Reagan are problems of war and peace and Soviet-American relations,” the memorandum stated. “These issues, according to the senator, will without a doubt become the most important of the election campaign.”
The memo explained Kennedy offered to visit Moscow to “arm Soviet officials with explanations regarding problems of nuclear disarmament so they would be better prepared and more convincing during appearances in the USA.”
Kennedy offered to get Andropov interviews on American television, so the Russian premier could explain in his own words the Russian position on nuclear disarmament.
“Tunney remarked that the senator wants to run for president in 1988,” the memorandum continued. “Kennedy does not discount that during the 1984 campaign, the Democratic Party may officially turn to him to lead the fight against the Republicans and elect their candidate president.”
Forbes concluded that when President Reagan chose to confront the Soviet Union, calling it the evil empire, it was Sen. Edward Kennedy who choose to offer aid and comfort to General Secretary Andropov.
“On the Cold War, the greatest issue of his lifetime, Kennedy got it wrong,” the Forbes story concluded.
