Apparently, Donald Trump’s meeting with the Russians is just a font of salacious stories. At one point, according to a document summarizing the meeting, Trump told the Russians, “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy. A real nut job.”
And that’s not all!
“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”
Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.”
The conversation, during a May 10 meeting — the day after he fired Mr. Comey — reinforces the notion that Mr. Trump dismissed him primarily because of the bureau’s investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian operatives. Mr. Trump said as much in one televised interview, but the White House has offered changing justifications
