RUSSIA! RUSSIA! RUSSIA! (your highness)

President Trump said on Wednesday that he never would have appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions had he known Mr. Sessions would recuse himself from overseeing the Russia investigation, calling the decision “very unfair to the president.” (Nixon speak)

Hid royal jackass (Trump) complained that Sessions’s decision led to the appointment of a special counsel that should never have happened.

Trump also accused James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director he fired, of trying to leverage a dossier of compromising RUSSIAN material to keep his job.

Trump criticized Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel now leading the investigation into Russian meddling in last year’s election. Trump said Mr. Mueller was running an office rife with conflicts of interest and warned investigators against delving into matters (his financials) far afield from Russia. Trump must have just caught "conflict of interest" from a FAUX Snews scroll, because he never mentioned of it before.

Trump never said he would order the Justice Department to fire Mr. Mueller. But he left open that possibility as he expressed deep grievances over the political toll in the first six months of his presidency.

Asked if RussiaGate would cross a red line if it looked into his finances, Mr. Trump said, “I would say yes.” “I think that’s a violation. Look, this is about Russia.”

I don’t think we’re (the royal “we”) under investigation,” he said. “I’m not under investigation. For what? I didn’t do anything wrong.”

Describing a newly disclosed informal conversation he had with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia during a dinner of world leaders in Germany this month, Mr. Trump said they talked mostly about “pleasantries.”

And the next day it snowed.
