Comey's Bombshell Opening Statement Confirms Investigation

Recommended Posts

FBI Director James Comey's opening statement during today’s House Intelligence Committee hearing was extraordinary, confirming far more than anyone had expected.

 

I have been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that the FBI, as part of our counter-intelligence mission, is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. And that includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts.

Comey has confirmed this statement in conversation with Democrats, but he's said nothing about it to Republicans. Why not?

Because they haven't asked. Despite the explosive nature of Comey's statement, Republicans are suddenly interested in only one topic: low-life leakers. Reps. Devin Nunes, Tom Rooney, and particularly Trey Gowdy demonstrated that they had absolutely no interest in Russia or in wiretapping.

Instead, all three asked Comey over and over (and over) about penalties for leaking. Gowdy—who was so “careful” that he refused to say Michael Flynn’s name, but only referred to him as a “U.S. citizen,” named a list of potential issues including former acting Attorney General Sally Yates, who was ousted and is testifying today. Gowdy stopped just short—by millimeters —of lapping Trump's wiretap claims by directly accusing President Obama of leaking Flynn’s name to the press.

All three were also blunt in threatening Comey with taking away programs if he wouldn't give them what they wanted. So we're getting the spectacle of a hearing on Russia and wiretapping in which Republicans are interested in neither Russia or wiretapping, but instead are badgering the FBI director to do exactly what Trump wanted by threatening programs the director just declared vital.

Good Lord. Nunes just asked Comey if FBI would investigate Clinton campaign or foundation for ties with Russia.

He can't lie under oath. He might be a Republican, but he's a law and order kind of guy, and he doesn't like Putin.

 

He can't give any specific information on the current investigations in a public forum, so what we have learned today is there are ongoing investigations. We won't find out anything else until a later date.

 

But because of the information revealed today, it gives Adam Schiff the subpoena power to bring members of the Trump administration to testify under oath, including the Attorney General.

 

You might want to stock up on pop corn, because this is only the beginning.

Hmmm...

 

The Russians trying to involve themselves in out elections is ONE thing... THEY are just done what WE have done NUMEROUS times... recently when Obama tried to swing the Israeli elections..

 

HOWEVER, it is a COMPLETELY different thing to assume that Donald Trump was involved...

 

ALOS, WHAT did Russian actions do? They REVEALED to the world the underhanded, and DISHONEST activities of the Democrat Party, in their "behind the scenes" collusion and corruption, in trying THEMSELVES to influence ELECTIONS !!

 

Personally, although I understand the severity of the actions in general, I'M TRULY torn as to whether the Russians deserve to be PUNISHED or REWARDED because the revealed the DEPTH of CORRUPTION within the American, and SPECIFICALLY the Democrat, Political System

He can't. The FBI is an independent law enforcement agency free from any influence or authority from the President.

Another reason AG Sally Yates was fired?

Of course he can fire him, we had this discussion when you wanted Obama to fire him.

 

 

The problem for you moonbats is that they have been "investigating" this for months and have found NOTHING.

Then why did Trump keep him on as director asshole?

 

Fool for not replacing Comey.. but Comey probably would have sung like a canary if Trump didn't keep him

 

Comey did stab Hillary in the back two weeks before election day
