Wednesday’s drop in markets comes after Tuesday evening saw the second damaging story for President Donald Trump in as many days.The New York Times reported Tuesday evening that Trump asked former FBI director James Comey to to end an inquiry into ties former national security advisor Michael Flynn had to Russia.And this report came just a day after The Washington Post reported Trump revealed “highly classified” information to Russia’s foreign minister.
Trump telling Comey to end the investigation then firing him a few months later might not be actual obstruction of justice since it really didn't change the investigation. I mean Comey himself wasn't doing the investigation but people at the FBI were. I guess you can argue that it puts a chill into them but they shouldn't really fear Trump if they are honest people.
One thing it did do is remove a very well liked head of the FBI and the "Deep State" is now getting revenge on Trump by "weaponizing the media." All of these leaks can be lies made from whole cloth but by the time they are refuted they have already done their damage.
