President Donald Trump doesn’t have recordings of his conversations with former FBI director James Comey, he said Thursday ending more than a month of questions about the existence of any tapes as the two-man dispute each other’s accounts of their discussions.

So why all the mystery. Wall all the waiting?
It’s just more provocative “reality show” baiting.

…Mr.Trump disputes Mr. Comey’s version – investigators face a challenge as they examine the matter.

Words and meanings take different shapes.

To get above 3 percent, you would need not only 1990s levels of productivity growth, labor force participation, and capital investment — you’d also need to go back in time and make sure that more babies were born between 1992 and 2002.

Claim the economy will grow at 3% (It won’t)
So the deficit? Now you see it; now don’t.‬

‪On the campaign trail, candidate Donald Trump said he would eliminate the national debt “over a period of eight years.” But his first budget as president would increase the debt by more than $3 trillion—and that’s only through rosy assumptions about economic growth and double-counting of tax revenue.‬

In the weeks before President Donald Trump fired FBI director James Comey, a federal investigation into potential collusion between Trump associates and the Russian government was heating up as Mr. Comey became increasingly occupied with the probe.

This is action we might require.
Generally, “where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”

While president Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday urging to shut down the government this for other than work with Democrats on the next budget bill, his Republican allies on Capitol Hill well once again caught off guard.

An “Ally,” one might comphrehend,
Is not your “foe” but your “friend??”
