Trump asked Comey to shut down investigation of Flynn, New York Times reports

Feeling Rebloggy

President Trump met with then-FBI Director James B. Comey in mid-February and asked him to end the bureau's investigation into retired Gen. Michael Flynn, the former White House national security advisor, the New York Times reported. 
Comey wrote a memo for his files describing the meeting with Trump, which took place on Feb. 14, according to the article. That would be the day after Trump fired Flynn from his White House job. Two people who had read the memo described its contents, the newspaper said. 
“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,”  Trump told Comey, according to the article. “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
A memo of that sort would be consistent with a practice Comey is known to have established earlier in his career of writing memos to document incidents that he found noteworthy or disturbing.

Gee.  I guess Comey refused to kiss the ring twice inside a month --once at the end of January and again on or near Valentines Day when this incident took place.
