Former FBI Director James Comey has a huge problem.
During his testimony, he claimed Trump was the only President he kept notes about after their meetings.
But this was a big lie.
Comey claimed he was forced to take notes about his meetings with Trump because he believed Trump was a liar.
He said he never memorialized his meetings with Presidents George W. Bush or Obama.
That wasn’t true.
And while Comey thought he could get away with this lie, his deception was quickly discovered.
Comey was one of the chief sources for Barton Gellman’s book Angler – which was a hit piece about Dick Cheney.
One of the key moments of the book was when Comey told then President Bush he would resign if Bush went ahead with reauthorizing a warrantless wiretapping program.
In his testimony, Comey claimed he only sent a quick email to staff to relate to them what happened.
But how did Gellman produce this vivid recollection in his book:
“Bush stood as the meeting ended, crossing behind Cheney’s chair. Comey moved in the opposite direction, on his way out. He had nearly reached the grandfather clock at the door when the president said, “Jim, can I talk to you for a minute?” … This time the vice president was not invited.”
Powerline Blog reports it was because Gellmann cited “unclassified notes” recounting Comey’s version of events:
“All of that dialogue comes verbatim from “unclassified notes describing Comey’s report of the meeting shortly afterward.” Gellman’s phrasing is clumsy; it isn’t clear whether the notes were Comey’s or someone else’s. But it is crystal clear that Comey rendered a “report” on his meeting that included these extensive, self-serving quotes, and that Comey’s side of the story was preserved in notes–unclassified notes, that sounds familiar!–against any possible future contingency.
In short, Comey’s statement to the Senate Intelligence Committee that “I didn’t feel, with President Bush, the need to document it in that way” was false. He did document his story about his meeting with President Bush, in great detail, in a “report” that was turned into “unclassified notes.”
Critics contend Comey perjured himself when he claimed Trump was the only President he met with that later wrote down notes about.
But it was a lie in pursuit of a goal – taking down Trump.
Comey schemed to establish Trump as a man of low character so he could make his broader case that Trump meant to obstruct justice when he merely said he hoped Comey would let the investigation into former National Security Advisor go.
How can anyone believe anything that comes out of the Obama administration. Seems to me they have lied, cheated, committed slander, fraud, pay-to-play, diverted millions of tax payer $$$ to organizations and for nefarious schemes to omit telling the truth.
So why are we wasting time and money on this disgruntled, fired employee? Why are we wasting even more time and money on a special investigation? Oh, that’s right, it’s these self-serving politicians who are trying to wag the dog.
Several felonies already committed by Comey, he must go to jail. The fake Russian collusion is a proven farce concocted by Democrats – shut it down now, its a waste of tax dollars. Prosecute Lynch next
If President Trump doesn’t fulfill his promise to “drain the swamp” by getting rid of all of Obama’s cronies, then he is hurting not only himself, he is placing Americans at risk of having Obama possibly attempting to reclaim his “throne”!!!
You are CORRECT! FIRE THEM ALL! Hillary Clinton and MUSLIM TRAITOR Obama belong in PRISON awaiting their EXECUTION FOR mega THEFT and murders and TREASON awaiting their EXECUTION! THEY deserve THE DEATH PENALTY!
