Multiple reports suggest Donald Trump gave contents of James Comey’s FBI computer to Russia – Palmer Report

As always, you can take these reports for what you think they’re worth. But it’s worth noting that Trump made the bizarre decision to send Schiller of all people to deliver the termination notice, suggesting some sort of hijinks. And Trump certainly knew Comey was on the other side of the country at the time. In addition, this kind of meticulousness on the part of Comey dovetails with his habit of documenting all of his conversations with Trump in memos, fearing the worst. Finally, if Comey was indeed setting a trap for Trump, he would have told his staff to give Trump’s firing messenger access to the computer in question. And it might help explain why the Deputy Attorney General decided to appoint a Special Counsel to take over the investigation today.
