The Comey Memos may be read below:
James Comey Memos just out and show clearly that there was NO COLLUSION and NO OBSTRUCTION. Also, he leaked classified information. WOW! Will the Witch Hunt continue?

The release of #Comey Memos are further proof of @realDonaldTrump’s contempt for the rule of law. His attempts to intimidate, circumvent the law & undermine integrity of law enforcement investigations demand immediate action to protect the Mueller investigation. #FollowTheFacts

Overall, the documents are no big deal as far as I am concerned – just the official bantering of paranoid and boring James Comey. Of course, the Democrats will do what they can do to find something to help impeach Trump, since that is their goal. However, I don’t see it happening.
“Trump asks Comey for “loyalty,” which the FBI director declined to pledge.
Trump clears the Oval Office to talk with Comey about Flynn and ask him to “let this go.”
Trump urges Comey to announce publicly that the FBI isn’t investigating him personally as it looked into whether the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian attack on the 2016 election.
Really, read the document yourself, as it is above.
The big news today concerning Trump is Cohen has dropped lawsuit against Buzzfeed and Fusion GPS. I see this as rather worrisome, but it is what it is.
President Donald Trump’s personal attorney dropped a pair of libel lawsuits against BuzzFeed and investigation firm Fusion GPS amid the stir caused by an FBI search of the lawyer’s files.
Michael Cohen had sued in New York City over publication of the unverified dossier detailing alleged ties between Trump and Russia. He dropped the suits late Wednesday during a separate legal battle over the seizure of documents and electronic files from his home, office and hotel room last week in a federal investigation of possible financial fraud.
The dossier claims that Cohen met with Russian operatives in Europe for a meeting to “clean up the mess” over disclosures of other Trump associates’ reported ties to Russia.
Cohen’s attorney, David Schwartz, said Thursday that “the decision to abandon the suits was difficult.”
Yes, and it does not look good.
Another development to be followed is the fact Mueller claims evidence Cohen traveled to Prague in 2016. Not good.
“The Justice Department special counsel has evidence that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and confidant, Michael Cohen, secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
Confirmation of the trip would lend credence to a retired British spy’s report that Cohen strategized there with a powerful Kremlin figure about Russian meddling in the U.S. election.
It would also be one of the most significant developments thus far in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of whether the Trump campaign and the Kremlin worked together to help Trump win the White House. Undercutting Trump’s repeated pronouncements that “there is no evidence of collusion,” it also could ratchet up the stakes if the president tries, as he has intimated he might for months, to order Mueller’s firing.
Trump’s threats to fire Mueller or the deputy attorney general overseeing the investigation, Rod Rosenstein, grew louder this week when the FBI raided Cohen’s home, hotel room and office on Monday. The raid was unrelated to the Trump-Russia collusion probe, but instead focused on payments made to women who have said they had sexual relationships with Trump.
Cohen has vehemently denied for months that he ever has been in Prague or colluded with Russia during the campaign. Neither he nor his lawyer responded to requests for comment for this story.”
I have a bad feeling about the fact Cohen dropped these lawsuits. We will see.
