Comey Raises More Issues

James Comey testified last week in an event that the media treated like the second coming. The networks preempted their regular programming to show Comey’s testimony because all of them thought he would drop a bombshell that would mean the end of the Trump presidency.

Comey did not drop any kind of bombshell and he left the media and their liberal puppet masters in distress. For months they have been anticipating a death blow to the Trump presidency and they knew for sure they had that blow in Comey. But as luck would have it, Comey confirmed what Trump stated about being told three times he was not under investigation and while Comey said he was concerned that Trump was trying to influence the investigation into General Flynn, his testimony told a different story.

Comey told us that Trump hoped that Flynn would be let go or the case would be dropped but Comey also told us that Trump told him that if anyone from his campaign were involved with the Russians it would be good to know. Rather than try to thwart the investigation it appears as if Trump wanted it done with as quickly as possible so he would not have a cloud hanging over his head.

That cloud could have been removed if Comey had been decent enough to inform the public that Donald Trump was not under investigation. That would have settled a lot of things but Comey did not do that.

As was stated in the Senate hearing, it appears the only thing not leaked was the truth about Donald Trump.

Comey also admitted he was the one who leaked his memos to the NYT through a surrogate. This was probably a criminal act since Comey took those notes after a meeting with the president, took them on a government issued computer in a government vehicle on his way to his government office. The notes he recorded were government property and Comey leaked them to eh media.

What else did Comey leak?

Comey also pointed his finger at former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the things he said indicate she was involved in illegal activity.

There are things here that can be easily cleared up.

Was there collusion with the Russians? Yes, Obama was recorded telling the Russians he would have more latitude after the election (to do things that might cost him reelection if they were done prior to Election Day). Was there an effort to impede an investigation? Yes, Loretta Lynch told Comey to call the Hillary INVESTIGATION a “matter” and this was done solely for optics. It was done to keep from casting an unfavorable light on Hillary over her illegal server and mishandling of classified information. Did Trump try to influence the outcome regarding Flynn? Comey said he took it that way and if that is the case then he must have taken Obama that way when he said Hillary should not be charged because she did not intend to do anything wrong. That was a public statement and Comey made sure she was not charged. If the liberals are going to say Trump tried to influence Comey they must then acknowledge that Obama DID influence Comey.

As for these memos and the information that the liberals waited on with baited breath, how do we know they really exist and if they do how do we know they were written when Comey said they were? He never took notes on all these other people who he had concerns about but he immediately started taking them with regard to Trump. I bet if there are notes he wrote them after he was fired and did so from memory. Without a third party to confirm it boils down to Trump’s word against Comey’s. Trump denies some of the substance of the notes and that means, barring another source, we will never really know what was said.

It is important to note that Trump said Comey told him he was not under investigation on three occasions and the media all panned that claim. During his Senate hearing Comey proved Trump was being truthful.

I think Comey put himself in a bit of a spot. He could well be charged with crimes and end up in real hot water.

The Russians tried to interfere with our elections as they have for decades (we do the same thing). However, Donald Trump did not collude with the Russians and had no contact with them regarding it.

Comey wanted a special prosecutor appointed and that is, according to him, why he leaked information. It appears that there is really no need for a special prosecutor. Perhaps it is time to realize this entire story is concocted by the people who lost the election and need someone to blame.

They lost and they are doing everything they can to keep Donald Trump from doing his job.

We need to make them pay for this.

Comey through the years

Yes, Trump Was Surveilled

Perhaps the biggest mistake in Donald Trump’s tweet about being wiretapped is that he stated Barack Obama had wiretapped him. It would have been more accurate for him to state that his campaign was the target of surveillance by the government.

Liberals are quick to jump on the claim that Obama did it and then extrapolate that into it did not happen. One does not mean the other. Obama certainly did not wiretap Trump but Trump was surveilled in some fashion. And Obama knew of the surveillance possibly before but more likely after the contents of the surveillance were compiled.

That would be JUST before they were illegally released to the media. You know, right before Obama walked out the door. You have to know that dropping a turd like this in Trump’s path is exactly the kind of thing Obama would do. Let us not forget that Obama (and yes it was he) used the IRS as a weapon against conservative groups. The reason things are compartmented and hidden and obstructed is because the trail leads right to King Barry Obama.

But back on point.

For about eight months prior to the election there were media reports that Trump was being surveilled. The New York Times (and possibly several other outlets) mentioned it and Hillary mentioned it as well. There certainly had to be some kind of surveillance for them to know what was being targeted. In one case it was the servers belonging to Trump. It is true those servers were looked at and it is true someone told Hillary and it is true she mentioned it. All these things are true so it is true there was some level of surveillance going on. It is also important to note that the Russian angle came up DURING the campaign and Hillary continually used it to attack Trump. It appears as if she had inside information regarding surveillance and was using it to attack her opponent.

As far as the later episodes it is quite possible, and more than likely, that Trump associates got caught up in surveillance of Russians. There has been no indication any of those folks colluded or did anything wrong, just that they had contact. Some of them had business entities in Russia and contact with Russians was not abnormal. FBI Director Comey said that his agency is investigating (as it has been for months) any connections between Trump campaign folks and the Russians but that NOTHING (so far) has been found.

The denials about wiretapping appear to be the denial that Obama had anything to do with them (or more accurately ordered them). All denials are that there is nothing to support President Trump’s claim (which was that Obama did it). Has there been a flat out denial that there were any wiretaps AT ALL?

General Flynn got caught up in the surveillance of Russians. It appears he did nothing wrong but he then lied about it to the Vice President and that led to his resignation. How did anyone know Flynn spoke with the Russian ambassador? They knew because they were listening. The US was eavesdropping on the Russians and Flynn got caught up in the recording. Whoever exposed this and made his name public broke the law. Remember when the government told us that they were only concerned with wiretapping foreigners that made calls or who were called by Americans and that our privacy would be protected? Remember when they said they were not interested in our part of the conversation? That seems to have changed and it changed when Obama could use the information for political gain.

Obama most certainly did not wiretap Trump’s phones and it is highly unlikely that Obama ordered such a thing (he would not want his fingerprints on it) but Trump was surveilled as evidenced by the months of media reports and Hillary’s revelations. It is also true that Trump’s people were surveilled as evidenced by the leaked transcripts of conversations, particularly those relating to General Flynn.

It is highly likely that Obama got that information prior to departing the White House and dropped it off on the way out the door. Again, he probably did not leak it but he provided it to the person who did.

There is absolutely no way in the world that Obama did not know.

He might not have fingerprints on it but he surely knew.

So Trump did not express it correctly but he was on the right track.
