John Oliver Tackles For-Profit Kidney Dialysis Companies on Last Week Tonight

John Oliver's Last Week Tonight is a weekly show, less interested in the news of today than 20-minute segments on niche subjects like chicken farming - and God bless HBO for giving him the green light on this.

"I call bullshit", Oliver said on Sunday night.

"It is just inherently suspicious to try and put words in Comey's mouth as you kick him out the door", Oliver said.

Despite the White House pointing to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's recommendation, Trump undermined it in an interview with NBC's Lester Holt.

Furthermore, the device comes laden with Android 7.0 Nougat based TouchWiz UI and supports Samsung Pay. The Galaxy Note 7R is expected to carry a 3,200mAh battery, lower than the Galaxy Note 7's 3,500mAh.

Oliver started by dissecting the letter the White House released dismissing Comey, which said that the ousted FBI director had informed Trump on three separate occasions that he was not under investigation. He also pointed to a tweet from Trump that suggested the president may have recorded his private meetings with Comey. "Oliver asked incredulously. "'I was thinking of the Russian Federation investigation when I fired Comey' is the one thing that you are NOT supposed to say out loud". It must have been someone much stronger and smarter with a much hotter daughter, ' and before they finished that sentence, Trump would be yelling, 'I did it! "Two, does he really think we as a country are this stupid, and three, are we as a country this stupid?" "And it's entirely possible the answers to all three questions are yes". One way to do this would be to successfully carry out the Russian Federation investigations in Congress, as well as push Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint a special prosecutor.

Pointing to Trump's admission of firing Comey due to the Russian Federation investigation, and his subsequent Twitter threat to Comey about these "tapes", Oliver is now telling Congress to get involved. If Congress doesn't look into Trump, then this is no longer on the president - it's on them.

While the question remains as to what will happen next, Oliver called on congress to take action, saying that, "The Founding Fathers created a system of checks and balances to limit the power of the President, but it only works if someone fucking checks, or balances".
