President Trump ripped beta-male former FBI Director James Comey after “failing to recall” answers for most of the House Oversight Committee’s questions. Funny, that’s a weird stance to take when you’re America’s most honest government employee.
President Donald Trump on Sunday criticized former FBI Director James Comey for saying he doesn’t recall the answers to questions during his Friday Congressional testimony behind closed doors.
Comey’s Friday testimony was published nearly 24 hours after he appeared before the joint House Oversight and Judiciary Committees to discuss investigations pertinent to the 2016 presidential election. Comey claimed on dozens of occasions that he did not recall or he did not know the answer to key questions regarding the FBI’s initiation of an investigation against the Trump campaign in 2016.
The former FBI director refused to answer many questions regarding the Trump campaign investigation, saying he did not want to compromise an ongoing investigation.
You are not compromising an ongoing investigation when you testify behind closed doors, jerkass. What you are doing is showing yourself to be less than honest at best, and a full-fledged liar at worst.
James Comey belongs in prison, but our betters in the government will never allow that to happen. Instead, the Democrats will continue to pursue impeachment, while the Clintons, Comeys, and Clappers of the world walk around scot-free.
P.S. – There’s an update and video of Kevin’s competition in the post below.
Former FBI Director James Comey, the most principled man ever to work in law enforcement, is suing to quash his subpoena before a House inquiry set for December 3rd.
Former FBI Director James Comey is asking a federal judge to block a subpoena for his closed-door testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.
The committee subpoenaed Comey on Nov. 21 to appear for a deposition Dec. 3 regarding his handling of the FBI investigations into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.
Comey responded to the subpoena on Twitter, calling for a public hearing instead of a private interview. His attorneys argue the subpoena request violates House rules, which they assert operate under the presumption that hearings be open to the public.
The reason why Comey is protesting this is because if the hearings are open, he can use that excuse to claim he cannot divulge sensitive information. It’s cover, and it gives him an excuse to not answer questions. Comey is a despicable POS, but he’s not stupid.
Comey’s legal team also argues that the House committees have selectively leaked details of closed-door testimony from other current and former FBI officials.
That’s a joke, right? Comey leaked like a sieve about the “Russian collusion” investigation to your lawyer friend, who then leaked to the media. I guess it’s okay if you leak something, right asshole?
It’s amazing what happens when a Republican calls out Democrat wrongdoing, instead of, say, sitting idly by and twiddling your thumbs.
President Trump repeatedly called for former FBI Director James Comey to be jailed for his handling of classified information and potentially lying to Congress in a string of tweets Sunday. Excerpts from Comey’s upcoming book, A Higher Loyalty, which will be released on Tuesday, sparked the tweets.
“The big questions in Comey’s badly reviewed book aren’t answered like, how come he gave up Classified Information (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail), why did the DNC refuse to give Server to the FBI (why didn’t they TAKE it), why the phony memos, McCabe’s $700,000 & more?” Trump tweeted.
Earlier in the morning, Trump slammed Comey for taking into account the polling in the 2016 election when deciding if he should notify Congress of the additional emails found on disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s computer in October 2016. Democrats widely blame Comey deciding to reopen the investigation into Clinton’s emails 11 days before the election for costing her the race.
I’m sure principled politicians like John McCain and Lindsey Graham caught a case of the vapors after seeing this. Lord knows “true conservatives” are supposed to furrow their brows at those who call out criminals, while simultaneously excusing their crimes.
Disgraced former FBI hacks James Comey – seen above, lying to Congress – and Andrew McCabe disagree about which criminal authorized agents to leak investigational details to the leftist media.
Former FBI Director James Comey told internal investigators at the Justice Department that he could not recall McCabe telling him about having authorized FBI officials to talk to a reporter about an ongoing investigation, the sources said…
Another source familiar with the matter argued the discrepancy between the two accounts is more about the fact they are recalling the interaction differently than a dispute about what took place, saying both were acting in “good faith.”
“They recall it differently,” the source said. “Andy thinks in good faith he told him, and Comey in good faith says he wasn’t told.”
Apparently the phrase “in good faith” is FedSpeak for lying. I sincerely hope to see these two before Congress, under oath, explaining their actions during their ridiculous reign.
The Daily Caller News Foundation submitted a FOIA request demanding details on an alleged secret meeting between President Barack Obama and FBI Director James Comey two weeks before President Trump’s inauguration.
The issue prompting the FOIA request was the disclosure Comey held a secret Oval Office meeting with Obama on Jan. 5, 2017. Comey never divulged the meeting to Congress. Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, former deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, and former Vice President Joe Biden also attended the meeting.
The National Archives revealed the existence of the meeting and released a declassified version of an email Rice sent to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. Rice wrote an email to herself about the secret Jan. 5 meeting with Comey on Inauguration Day Jan. 20, 2017, as President Donald Trump was being sworn into office. The email suggested Comey may have misled Congress and was attempting to cover up the extent of his relationship with Obama.
Christopher Bedford, TheDCNF’s editor-in-chief, called the FBI denial “shameful.”
“The FBI just told us that Director James Comey potentially lying to Congress should not be of interest to us, that it doesn’t speak to their ‘integrity,’ and that it shouldn’t impact America’s ‘confidence’ in them,” Bedford said.
Is there anyone in America or abroad who trusts the FBI anymore? Their reputation has completely crumbled, and the injuries were entirely self-inflicted.
Months after being testifying before Congress about his firing, former FBI Director James Comey is claiming the man he leaked classified documents to is now magically his lawyer.
A friend of former FBI director James Comey who leaked sensitive FBI memos to The New York Times in the wake of Comey’s firing in 2017 now claims to be Comey’s personal attorney. Daniel Richman, a law professor at Columbia University, told The Federalist via phone on Tuesday afternoon that he was now personally representing Comey.
A review of FBI policies governing the handling of sensitive government documents suggests Comey violated FBI policy by leaking the memos, which were produced on government time, using government equipment, and directly related to his official government responsibilities, according to Comey’s own testimony before Congress.
Reached by phone on Tuesday, Richman refused to say when his legal representation of Comey began or whether he was personally representing Comey when the former FBI director testified before Congress in June 2017 about his deliberate leaking of the FBI records.
This isn’t difficult, people; Comey is claiming Richman is his attorney so he can claim attorney-client privilege, and keep himself out of prison. Huma Abedin and Anthony Wiener are doing the same; staying married so they cannot testify against each other. Comey’s ploy will likely be unsuccessful, since he never once claimed Richman was representing him during his previous testimonies.
Either way, this corrupt son of a bitch needs to be fitted for a jail cell.
During a news conference yesterday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders – who I love, by the way – made the case for prosecuting former FBI director James Comey.
Sarah Sanders pointed to Comey’s acknowledgement during a June congressional hearing that he authorized the leaking of a memo about his conversations with the president to The New York Times.
“The memos that Comey leaked were created on a FBI computer while he was the director,” Sanders said during Wednesday’s briefing. “He claims they were private property. They clearly follow the protocol of an official FBI document.”
Sanders added, “Leaking FBI memos on a sensitive case, regardless of classification, violates federal laws including the Privacy Act, standard FBI employee agreement and non-disclosure agreement all personnel must sign. I think that’s pretty clean and clear that that would be a violation.” (H/T – AOSHQ)
Agreed. Comey drafted the memo on an FBI computer before leaking it to his media buddies. If any other agent had done the same, that agent would be fired and prosecuted. Not doing so would not only be hypocritical, but also further damage an institution already suffering from credibility issues.
Former FBI Director James Comey made the decision to clear Hillary Clinton of any wrongdoing weeks before her home server investigation had finished. In short, the “investigation” was nothing of the sort.
According to new transcripts released by the Senate Judiciary Committee, former FBI Director James Comey made the decision not to refer then Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for prosecution long before ever interviewing key witnesses. Members of the Committee allege Comey made the decision months before FBI agents were finished with the criminal investigation into her mishandling of classified information during her time as Secretary of State.
President Trump’s decision to fire this corrupt bureaucrat was the right one, and his reward for draining this part of the swamp was the ensuing “OMG TRUMP-RUSSIA!” witch hunt.
According to the letter and an ongoing investigation into the matter, Comey started drafting a statement exonerating Clinton in April or May of 2016. At this point, he had not interviewed Clinton herself or her closest aides. This included Bryan Pagliano, who set up the personal server where Clinton hosted and shared top secret information, and Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, who was granted immunity. On July 5, 2016, Comey made his public statement that the FBI would not be referring Clinton to the Department of Justice for prosecution.
The Clinton investigation needs to be reopened immediately, and a separate investigation into James Comey’s actions must be convened. Similarly, the “OMG TRUMP-RUSSIA!” nonsense needs to end. None of these show trials were ever created to find the truth; they were formed to cover people’s asses.
