Quite the opposite I would think?

The runoff elections prove it.

Why? Because Republicans squeaked by in solid red districts?

Let's let the multiple investigations into Trump campaign collusion do their jobs. In the meantime we can think back to that time that Trump asked Russia to find Hillary's "missing" emails

yeah and he did witness intimidation by saying "Comey better hope there's no tapes"

Surely, impeachment is just around the corner.

The witness tampering is because he lied about the tapes,

"Whoever uses misleading conduct to influence the testimony . ."

ALSO, falsely and publicly accusing a witness of a crime - - leaking - -  is witness tampering.

I'm not going to parse your defense.

If you don't want to admit that he lied, the LAW condemns "misleading conduct."

Cameron.  Did the President say he had tapes of the conversation?  I'm not the one parsing... but y'all know that.

Are you using the "depends what is is" defense?

Not at all.  Show me the quote where he says "I taped the conversation"... "the conversation was taped"... "will you speak a little louder James"... "would you like another scoop of ice cream with that"? .  Something... anything!

Here is the actual tweet:

"James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"

It is true he did not tweet that he taped anything, but it was implied; it was also an implied threat to Comey for anyone with a 5th grade reading comprehension. My mother used to use the "You better hope..." phrase to us kids when we were growing up and when she did, her intent was to put fear into us. And, yes...it was quite effective! ;)

I agree.  He, Comey,  agreed the president wanted to know if any of his people was doing anything wrong.

There are none, including Trump.  I know reading comprehension is a challenge when you discuss Trump, but go back and read his quote and his tweet on the subject.  There is no ask for anything, unless someone wants to bend language in a way that makes no sense.

Not sure what you mean.

Comey: The President went on to say that if there were some “satellite” associates of his who did something wrong, it would be good to find that out, but that he hadn’t done anything wrong and hoped I would find a way to get it out that we weren’t investigating him."

It is funny that the president keeps coming out on top with every tweet.  I just hope he doesn't "choke"

You have a head like a sieve.

I explained to you just the other day that it doesn't matter what Trump claims to be influencing Comey to do.

Remember  "Bush-isms"?  This will be known as a Trump-ism.

"If Russia or any other country or person has Hillary Clinton's 33,000 illegally deleted emails, perhaps they should share them with the FBI!"

His attempt a humor.  If someone has them they will be shared.

Nice try but that's not the relevant quote

"Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,I'm sure you'll be amply rewarded by the press"

And you see in that a request to conduct espionage??  You have a quite vivid imagination.

He's just trying to change the subject to Trump's veiled threat to Trump.

And then he fired him because of the investigation he seemed to encourage.
