According to the Comey memos, in an attempt to discredit the Steele Dossier — specifically the part that claimed he had Russian prostitutes in his room, peeing on the bed the Obamas had slept in — The Piss-Play-Enthusiast-in-Chief told James Comey that he didn’t spend the night in Moscow on his trip there for the Miss Universe Pageant. HEY GUESS WHAT, HE LIED. The pee pee tape is real.
I will also pause to note that President Liar’s claim that he didn’t spend the night in Moscow had already been discredited by his bodyguard Keith Schiller when he testified before Congress in November. According to sources, Schiller told Congress that at a business meeting, a “Russian participant” offered to send five women to Trump’s Moscow Ritz-Carlton hotel room, but Schiller thought it was “a joke.”
That night, two sources said, Schiller said he discussed the conversation with Trump as Trump was walking back to his hotel room, and Schiller said the two men laughed about it as Trump went to bed alone. Schiller testified that he stood outside Trump’s hotel room for a time and then went to bed.
One source noted that Schiller testified he eventually left Trump’s hotel room door and could not say for sure what happened during the remainder of the night.
THE PEE PEE TAPE IS REAL.
As predicted, the Sean Hannity story is starting to become interesting. Still no evidence that Hannity did anything illegal here, but he certainly was in bed with people who were doing illegal things — and he indirectly benefitted. Stay tuned.
