Re: Proof That Comey Is Crooked

Quick update:

Thursday it was announced that Comey planned to exonerate Clinton well before the investigation had concluded.
Friday, yesterday, Mueller leaked information that he has the first draft that the White House created with a different reason for firing Comey that had to do with his Russia investigation.

The establishment left is trying to pivot but they're using impossible circular logic. Comey was fired for cause, as proven now by his intention to predetermine the outcome of his investigation. He lied under oath when he said it was because of the tarmac meeting. But as we know, the left knows no bounds when it comes to hypocrisy. Their goal is to get Trump.

So even though Comey has been proven to be a scam. His determination that Trump should be investigated for collusion with Russia and the on going fishing expedition is still valid?

And let's not forget.... Comey said the reason he leaked his memos about his meeting with Trump was so a special council could be appointed. No doubt he knew that would be Robert Mueller. It was an astounding gaff for the doe eyed boy scout giant. The intent was to setup legal prosecution of Trump. Mueller could care less what happened during the election, who hacked what, he's looking for a way to take down Trump, or in the least further tarnish his presidency.

This is a key moment for the MSM. Hurricane Harvey has changed the narrative that was seriously toxic. The focus has turned to empathy for other people, people helping people, and even the races working together.

So now the pivot is back to Russia. Does the MSM realize now the political nature of this legal attack on Trump? Do they care? I wonder if the answer to those questions rely on whether they believe Mueller can win. But now that they see Comey exposed as a fraud, how can they avoid the hypocrisy by not reporting this angle of the story? They don't want to talk about how Comey can no longer be trusted because they are relying on Comey's judgement for the Russian prosecution.

They might try to pivot back to Hillary... say that Trump is calling the system rigged. But really this is about Comey... all about Comey. He's the key to unraveling everything.

According to WaPo, Trump is trying to destroy Comey's credibility to avoid being prosecuted for collusion with the Russians:

Given the avalanche of new details in the Trump-Russia probe and whether President Trump obstructed justice in firing FBI Director James B. Comey, it’s not surprising that Republicans are fortifying the president’s defenses. On Thursday, Sens. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) and Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) released a letter in which they claim Comey “prejudged” the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email practices. Trump latched onto the story, tweeting Friday morning, “Wow, looks like James Comey exonerated Hillary Clinton long before the investigation was over…and so much more. A rigged system!” Rather than undermine the case against firing Comey, though, Grassley and Graham’s letter and the reactions by other Republicans show again that they’ll use any excuse to hurt Comey’s credibility and by extension special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s inquiry.

..it’s far from unusual for prosecutors and investigators to draft statements about their conclusions before the investigation is over so that the case can proceed efficiently. If Comey and his team had taken weeks after interviews were finished to draft and announce his decision, Republicans would have claimed he was trying to slow-walk the case. That Comey was already at work on a statement is not evidence of impropriety. As Washington veterans (and in Graham’s case, a former lawyer), the senators likely know this.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/po ... 7d946fb13b


So we are to believe that Comey was just being efficient when he prejudged that Hillary was innocent long before the investigation was over and anyone was even interviewed.

The kid that wrote this, James Downie, looks like he's 19 years old. Talk about your twisted logic and juvenile conclusions. James doesn't even ask what it would have meant if this information was released in April when Comey knew he was going to let her off the hook. The Democrats might have been able to part from a terrible candidate and actually beat Trump.

Here's another desperate attempt at spin by WaPo:

What’s more, all sentient Americans will remember the history here. The notion that Comey somehow let Clinton off the hook is absurd. It’s true that Comey announced in July 2016 that the investigation into her emails was over. But Comey’s press conference was harshly critical of Clinton, calling her “extremely careless,” something that may have contravened Department of Justice policy and which Trump and Republicans continually exploited throughout the campaign. And Comey revived the focus on supposed Clinton wrongdoing when he announced he was re-opening the investigation into Anthony Wiener’s laptop just before the election — something Republicans also exploited.

In Trump’s telling, though, Clinton was given some special kid-glove treatment, and he is a victim of the “deep state.”

The White House must believe the public to be dimwitted, because Sanders’ effort to prop up her boss falls to pieces under the most basic scrutiny. It’s obvious that Trump is trying to litigate, in the court of public opinion at least, a claim that he did not obstruct justice in firing Comey, a sure sign that Mueller’s investigation into his possible obstruction of justicehttps://www.washingtonpost.com/b ... 56927cdb2f has him very worried.


Unbelievable really..... to look at how Clinton was treated by the FBI and now how Trump is being treated.

This notion that Comey wasn't working for Hillary because he re-opened the case just before the election. The reason he did that was 100% CYA. His investigation hinged on the fact that the FBI could not find evidence of intent on Hillary's part. When the Weiner emails surfaced, he had to reopen in case evidence appeared that Hillary broke all those laws intentionally. As soon as the emails were reviewed, he quickly closed the case again. It's amazing how quickly the FBI can work when they have a deadline.

Clinton still blaming Comey:

Hillary Clinton has made no secret of her disdain for James Comey’s handling of her email probe – but says in her forthcoming memoir she regrets not going after him “hard” from the moment he announced the investigation’s results.

The former FBI director is just one of numerous figures whom Clinton implicates for playing a role in her 2016 election loss, though she also assumes some of the blame.

According to excerpts of “What Happened” obtained by The Daily Beast ahead of the book's Sept. 12 release, Clinton not only complains about Comey’s decision to revisit the email case days before the election, but takes issue with his July 2016 statement concluding the probe.

In that press event, Comey advised against criminal charges but still called her use of a private email server while secretary of state “extremely careless.”

“My first instinct was that my campaign should hit back hard and explain to the public that Comey had badly overstepped his bounds—the same argument [Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein would make months after the election,” Clinton writes, according to the excerpts. “That might have blunted the political damage and made Comey think twice before breaking protocol again a few months later. My team raised concerns with that kind of confrontational approach. In the end, we decided it would be better to just let it go and try to move on. Looking back, that was a mistake.”
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/09 ... ments.html


Does anyone still want Hillary to be president? Does anyone even think that she's presidential?

Obviously blame should be for herself, setting up a private server and breaking at least five laws.

No... it's Comey.

And the worst part here is the lies within lies. She knows that she wouldn't have beat the charge without Comey's white washing of the investigation. She owes Comey a debt of gratitude and she knows it. Still she's not giving up on her political ambitions and she doesn't want anyone to know that the Clintons were in cahoots with the FBI.

The media had all the right talking points post election. There was collusion. There was obstruction. There was interference in our election..... but it wasn't Trump.

She also reprises her criticism of Comey’s October announcement regarding the discovery of new emails.

“Was this a bad joke?” she writes, according to the excerpts. “It had to be. “The FBI wasn’t the Federal Bureau of IFs or Innuendos. Its job was to find out the facts. What the hell was Comey doing?”


He was playing CYA. Comey can't maintain that they found no evidence of Hillary's intent with thousands of unchecked emails on Weiner's computer. Notice that she doesn't blame Weiner.... it's all calculated. She has to blame Comey. The same reason applies to why Wikileaks wasn't blamed for the interference in the election. That's no good... it has to be the Russians.

I don't watch 60 minutes, seems Bannon has an opinion on the Comey firing, this from an article speculating on where Mueller's investigation is headed in terms of the attention to money laundering

The new report comes just days after Trump’s former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, told CBS’s 60 Minutes that Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey, which he called the worst mistake in “modern political history,” led directly to the appointment of Mueller to oversee the investigation.

I can see why Bannon says it was a mistake to fire Comey. As it stood before the firing, the FBI had already been investigating Trump for almost a year. You can bet that Obama put him on the case. They had nothing and they knew it. Their best attack strategy was the perjury trap.... keep bringing up meetings that are not crimes to prove some abstract concept of collusion. If a story changes, scream outrage and ask, "what else are they lying about?"

After Comey was fired, Mueller was appointed with 'special' powers. Scary at that because he doesn't have to stick to the espionage investigation that Comey was charged with. The original committees were formed to find out what happened with Russian interference in the election. Now it's about business dealings, and obstruction of all things, for firing the very crooked Comey.

I'm guessing that's where Bannon is going. However, I disagree with Darth Vader. I still think it was a good idea to fire Comey... so long as Trump doesn't get impeached...LOL

Let's say he survives the storm, which I think he will. Mueller is most likely to take down some one like Manafort. Trump is POTUS with lots of protection under the constitution. They can make a political argument for impeachment, but there's no crime against Trump that will force a resignation ala Nixon. If Trump left Comey in place, he would remain an enemy. He's the FBI Director. This is the guy that let Hillary off the hook, despite over-whelming evidence of guilt, and this is the guy that put Trump on the hook, despite any evidence of guilt. Comey had to be taken out.

Even so, Bannon is also right about Trump's worst mistake, not the firing, his words. Remember, Sessions and Rosenstein drafted the letter recommending firing. All Trump had to do is shut his mouth, but he ends up taking credit. Yeah, it was his idea. His ego got in the way. Definitely a big mistake.

Trump will resign before he the impeachment proceedings begin unless he is arrested (removed from office) so quickly and charged with a felony that he doesn't have the time to resign from office.

the gropenfuhrer can still get the electric chair. All that needs to transpire is for "2 individuals to confess in the various convened Grand Juries ..... under oath to having committed treasonous activity" ..... and then point the finger of blame at the boss for being aware and in charge of their treasonous actiivities. The argument that America must be at war for capital punishment to be the sentence for treasonous activity is false ...... a lie.
