James Brien Comey Jr. is expect to do his very best to try to get Trump impeached. When you testify before Congress, you first submit an outline of what you intent to say. As I have explain many times, the first thing in law is you NEVER ask a question you already do not know the answer to. Comey will do his utmost to now overthrow Trump for the establishment. It really does not matter what the truth is, the press and Congress will make whatever his says absolute fact. After reading this statement, I see no actual legal grounds to Impeach Trump. However, as I have written in the urgent Special Report, there is no rule of law that matters to Congress. This is political.
James B. Comey, plans to tell senators in what has become the Super Bowl of Political Corruption cheered by the New York Times, Washington Post, and CNN who all wish they could crown Hillary and disgorge everyone who makes the economy function who disagrees with them. Make no mistake about it, these three mainstream media are out for blood and if it leads to a civil war, so be it. It is their way or no way.
Comey will testify to provide vague inferences but it is up to others to do as much possible damage to the country as possible covering a a wide-range effort to try to cast Trump into as dark a sinister figure as possible and those on Capitol Hill and the intelligence community as the utmost people of such honor that how dare anyone say otherwise. Impeachment will depend upon the Republican and it has been McCain and Graham who are leading the charge to overthrow Trump to preserve the Deep State and corruption.
In seven pages of written testimony made public in advance by the Senate Intelligence Committee, Mr. Comey outlined how Mr. Trump sought a pledge of loyalty and an end to the investigation into his national security adviser, and how the president questioned whether Mr. Comey, four years into a 10-year term, wanted to remain in his job. Comey wrote in this outline that he told Mr. Trump on at least one occasion in early January that he was not under investigation at that time.
Comey did not have to testify. He could have easily just declined. He did decline to the Judiciary Committee but accepted to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee reflecting that this is about Russia.
Comey now writes that in a previously undisclosed phone call on March 30, he says Trump asked what could be done to “lift the cloud” over him from the investigation, because it was hurting his ability to govern and move his agenda forward. Mr. Comey will now testify that he was reluctant to make that announcement “for a number of reasons, most importantly because it would create a duty to correct, should that change.”
Trump does not seems to be someone willing to step down easily. I have covered in the special report the Impeachment of Trump all the real details of how Congress has NEVER obeyed the Constitution and invokes Impeachment mainly because they do not like the people they target. Impeachment motions have been foiled against EVERY president in a row since Ronald Reagan. It seems once they drew first blood with Nixon, they have fun doing this to distract the nation to keep the corruption in place and the money flowing.
In the written testimony, Mr. Comey also disclosed that Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, is the subject of an investigation into whether he made false statements to the F.B.I. about his contacts with Russian officials. That is what Martha Steward was sent to prison for. The law is very one-sided here. Those in governmend the press lie to us ALL THE TIME, but if you make any statement they claim is false, then you go to jail.
The want to prosecute Flynn just to taint Trump. Mr. Comey will tell senators that he wrote the first memo shortly after he initially met Mr. Trump, on January 6th, during the presidential transition. He will say, according to his advance outline, that in a meeting, Comey told the president-elect he was not under investigation. He then says Trump did not ask if he was under investigation but Mr. Comey “offered that assurance.” That is fairly obvious for Flynn is not under investigation for what he did with Russia, but lying to the FBI that he did anything with Russia.
Comey also says he briefed Mr. Trump on the contents of a dossier that was filled with unsubstantiated allegations that a former British spy believed the Russian government had collected on Mr. Trump. Putin has said that is all nonsense for they do not create a dossier on every business man who travels to Russia. Trump went they during a business trip and that was it.
So buckle up. It will be show-time.
