Did We Just See A Smoking Gun Go Off?

Trump just held a new conference, and I'm not sure he had been briefed on what had happened one hour ago. Remember that Trump put in writing that he fired FBI Director Comey, who was investigating Trump/Russians ties, because of a memo of Rosenstein. The earlier news when Rosenstein, who is not happy, met with the Senate: 
One hour later, Trump doubles down and says he fired the FBI Director because of the recommendation of Rosenstein.

Not to mention that he said, "There is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign . . .I can always speak for myself and the Russians."

Good lord.
