Last Thursday, Former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee. The media portrayed this testimony as being the event that “will take Donald Trump down.” The liberal mainstream media was so excited that they placed countdown clocks on their networks to mark the event, whereas they did no such thing for the Sessions testimony. They were confident that this would be the downfall of Trump, but instead it was actually the downfall of Comey.
In the testimony, Comey admitted that he leaked memos to one of his “buddies” that serves as a college professor. He instructed his “buddy” to distribute the memos to the media, which resulted in their publication by the New York Times. This admission revealed that Comey was nothing more than a scumbag leaker, seeking to takeout the President.
Comey was appointed to the position of FBI Director by President Barack Obama on September 4, 2013. While he is a former republican (now a registered independent), it is apparent that his loyalty remains with the Washington establishment-types.
Comey admitted that Obama’s Justice Department, under Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, tried to cover-up the Clinton email scandal, by attempting to label the investigation as being nothing more than a “matter.” Is that not an obstruction of justice? This realization reveals that Lynch attempted to pressure Comey to cover for Hillary Clinton.
Democrats continue to make the absurd claim that Trump colluded with Russia to interfere with the election. In reality, Democrats colluded with the Justice Department, attempting to interfere with the results of the election by covering up a scandal. This pressure by Lynch also was a successful obstruction of justice, because (as we all know) Hillary was not charged, even though she clearly violated the law.
Comey expressed that while Russia potentially attempted to “interfere” in the election, they did not alter the results. This is a bogus claim by democrats to gain sympathy from the electorate.
The former FBI director stated that President Trump is not and has never been a target in the “Russia” investigation. Comey expressed that he told this fact to the President, but would not do so publicly to the American people. His reasoning for his failure to communicate this actuality to the American people was due to the possibility of Trump becoming a target in the future (if the FBI would find evidence that would suggest such a connection). Comey claimed that he did not want the FBI to go back on a statement.
This is bogus reasoning. The Federal Bureau of Investigation could have expressed that President Trump is not “presently” a target, which would allow flexibility if evidence would lead to a potential connection. Comey just wanted the public to continue perceiving the President as a scandalous leader, with potential connections to Russia for as long as possible.
According to the memos, Trump allegedly told Comey in a private meeting, “I hope you can let this go,” with regards to the investigation of Gen. Michael Flynn.
When a senator asked Comey if he has ever known someone charged for “hoping something,” the Former FBI director responded, “I don’t as I set here.”
Was Trump’s intent to “obstruct justice?” No, he was simply expressing his opinion that he hoped Gen. Michael Flynn would not be disgraced unnecessarily.
Some democrats on Capitol Hill are attempting to impeach President Trump, even though he lacked the intent to obstruct. It is important to point out that the reason why Hillary Clinton was not held accountable by the FBI and charges were not pursued was due to her “lack of intent” to commit a wrong doing.
Democrats praised the FBI’s decision not to indict Clinton based upon intent, but now they have a clear double-standard with President Trump, especially considering that he did not even attempt obstruct justice.
While Comey confessed these realities, which were damaging to his credibility and revealed the corruption that exists in the Democratic Party, he did his best to portray Trump in the most negative way possible. Nevertheless, despite his expressed negative opinions of the President, he caused himself to implode and Trump to be vindicated.
