I'm enjoying this Trump implosion so much and he’s going to take plenty with him.
Senator Chuck Grassley has enabled Donald Trump every chance he gets. After Trump fired James Comey, Grassley was right there covering up for Trump again like a good little automaton.
During Sean Spicer’s press conference, Spicer said Trump received assurances from Grassley’s office that Russian collusion with the Trump campaign was a “hoax”.
Chuck’s in bed with the orange menace, so he should be prepared to be taken down by the orange menace. This is delicious, because Chuck Grassley has been a huge enabler of Trump. Great to see him get some of Trump’s medicine of serial lies.
Grassley’s spox refuted the White House’s account.
Suck it up and deal with Donald Trump, Chucky. More to come.
And more importantly, as Michael Isikoff reports, this new revelation by the White House catches them in yet another LIE about the firing of Comey.
The Trump LIES are coming fast and furiously.
How much longer can Republicans keep covering for Donald Trump? Ask Chuck Grassley and other Republicans, before they’re thrown under the bus by Trump.
Just hours after White House spokesman Sean Spicer said President Trump had received assurances from a key senator that the idea of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia was a “hoax,” a spokesman for the senator, Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, denied any such conversation.
“Sen. Grassley has not spoken to President Trump about what he has learned in briefings related to investigations into Russian interference in our elections, and he has never referred to the notion of collusion as a ‘hoax,’” Grassley’s spokesman, Taylor Foy, emailed Yahoo News. Grassley is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and together with ranking minority member Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., has been briefed on details of the FBI investigation into Russian meddling in last year’s presidential election.
Foy’s statement seemed to directly contradict Spicer’s remarks earlier Friday, raising new questions about the credibility of White House accounts of the firing of FBI Director James Comey. “I think the president’s comments about Russia and collusion have been very clear with respect to some of the charges that have been made,” Spicer said. “He’s been very clear that he believes that the notion there’s collusion is a hoax. It’s been reaffirmed by several people, including Sen. Grassley and others who have spoke to him.”
