Judge Jeanine Pirro Interviews Donald Trump Jr. About Comey Testimony…

Judge Jeanine Pirro interviews Donald Trump Jr. about why he has decided to take a lead position in pushing back against the insufferable ‘muh Russian conspiracy’.

Factually, who can blame him?  Don Jr. has to watch these ridiculous media attacks against his father, his brother, his sister and his family 24/7.  Eventually anyone in that position is going to say ‘enough’ and start confronting those determined to undermine his father’s administration.

Comey Proves He is Part of Gang of Four Against Trump

The most telling thing about Comey is he said he did not trust Trump and “thought” he might need notes to protect himself and the FBI when speaking to him. Yet, in the interview that was supposed to clear up Hillary Clinton’s involvement with countless scandals, including her private email server where Comey admitted she was careless with national security, according to James Comey, none of it was recorded. So why did Comey protect Hillary refusing to record anything she said thereby preventing any charges for lying to the FBI as they prosecuted Martha Stuart, and then he recorded conversations with Trump because he didn’t trust him?

Comey was part of the Gang of Four. The degree of pomp and circumstance and him calling Trump a liar is rather astonishing when absolutely EVERY proffer session with the FBI is routinely recorded so they can bring charges against you if you lie. I am shocked at the level of dishonestly that Comey has displayed and of course mainstream media refuses to expose anything negative about Comey or the Democrats. This only further proves the conspiracy brewing. The Deep State is fighting back very hard.

Comey protects Hillary and trashes Trump. Very interesting to say the least!

CNN Fires Host Reza Aslan After Vulgarities Directed Toward President Trump…

After initially stating that Reza Aslan was not an employee of CNN, the network has reversed course and decided not to continue a relationship with the toxic and vulgar host.

CNN – […] The network said Friday that it has “decided to not move forward with production” on Aslan’s “Believer” series.

Season one of “Believer” premiered in March. Season two was announced at an event for advertisers in mid-May. Aslan’s production company had already started working on the new episodes.

But the network decided to break off the production relationship after Aslan called President Trump a piece of excrement, using an expletive, last Saturday. (link)

Secretary Rex Tillerson Delivers Update on Qatar – 1:30pm Livestream….

UPDATE:  Absolutely brilliant strategic approach taken by President Trump and Secretary of State Tillerson; essentially supporting the GCC against Qatar via a mediation role that resembles Bad Cop/Good Cop.   Those closely following the deep-weeds diplomacy will note the predictability of exactly this approach.

This is not the first time this issue has surfaced.  Qatar is a financier of terrorism and extremist Islamic sentiment via their support for the Muslim Brotherhood.  In 2014 the Arab nations of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), confronted Qatar and pulled their diplomats to force Qatar to expell the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood….

Against President Trump renewed call to “drive out” the extremists and confront terrorism, the GCC is once again calling out Qatar.  President Trump is the big stick  enforcer expressing understanding for the GCC approach; Secretary Tillerson is the diplomat trying to change the behavior of Qatar with carrots.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will be discussing the regional partnership issues with Qatar and their Arab coalition members.  State Department LINK

Top Five Facts and Examples Showcasing Comey’s Political Motives…

After watching James Comey and crew (Brennan, Yates, Clapper, etc.) testify for more than 11 months (July ’16 through June ’17), hopefully we don’t have to see any of their faces broadcasting false narratives on TV again.  That said, here’s the top five facts that showcase how badly James Comey politicized the FBI:

Number FIVE – James Comey stated under oath, and included in his written statement, that it was his decision to speak alone, one-on-one to President-Elect Trump on January 6th in Trump Tower as Comey asked everyone else to leave the briefing.  Comey held no issues with a private  conversation with the incoming President.

However, a month later on February 14th, in the oval office, when President Trump asked everyone to leave the room for a one-on-one, James Comey testifies it was “inappropriate” for a private conversation.

Number FOUR – James Comey stated to congress on March 20th, he intentionally did not brief congressional intelligence oversight/leadership of the counterintelligence investigation, that began in July 2016, until March 2017.  He intentionally kept congress in the dark.

There was no reason to keep congress in the dark, unless Comey held a political motivation to do so such that he could operate his agenda without any oversight.

Number THREE – James Comey told President Trump he was not under investigation three different times from January 6th through May 2017.  Comey also notified the congressional oversight Gang-of-Eight in March and April that President Trump was not under investigation.  However, Comey intentionally refused to tell the public the same thing he was telling President Trump and congress.

However, worse yet, James Comey was telling President Trump there was no factual or substantive foundation behind the ‘Russian Pee Dossier’; yet simultaneously Comey was using the ‘Russian Pee Dossier‘ as evidence to gain FISA warrants against Trump Administration officials.

Number TWO – James Comey admitted to congress than he personally leaked information to a friend with instructions to deliver to the media (New York Times), despite his own prior assertions to congress and to the American electorate, that leaks to the media by officials was toxic and damaging to the integrity of the FBI.

There were several avenues available to Comey to deliver the content of his memos to congress including directly delivering them to oversight; or holding a press conference.  There was no reason to manufacture media leaks, to accomplish a political goal, unless James Comey held a political motivation to do so.

Number ONE – James Comey justified in his statements that on February 14th he did not inform his recently confirmed boss Attorney General Jeff Sessions, of the content of the oval office meeting with President Trump – or his suddenly overwhelming feelings of impropriety, because he anticipated Jeff Sessions would be forced to recuse himself from anything to do with the Russian investigation..

There was nothing known on February 14th which would establish a need for Sessions recusal. There’s no reasonable basis for such an assumption on February 14th, unless it was Comey’s intention to leak FISA-granted surveillance of Russian Ambassador Kislyak, having an innocuous meeting with Senator Jeff Sessions, to the Washington Post.  A disingenuous, albeit politically framed, leak did factually surface on March 1st.


Marco Rubio Questions James Comey – The Curiously Unidirectional Leaks…

Senator Marco Rubio questions fired FBI Director James Comey and discovers President Trump doesn’t know the politically correct order of operations when approaching a request to get beyond hyper-partisan politicized investigative nonsense; which led to Comey instructing Trump orbit how the chain of political command works in DC; which led to President Trump agreeing the investigation should be carried out thoroughly and entirely because he wants to get this ridiculous investigative cloud off his back so he can get back to doing the work he was elected to do; and President Trump wants anyone connected to Russia improperly to be discovered so he can get rid of them and move on.

Shocker.  O-M-G bigly scandal.  ie. ‘nothingburger’.


As Expected – Comey Tries Hard to Take Down Trump Admits He is Leaker

James Comey that he orchestrated the leak of his conversations with President Donald Trump claiming he thought it might lead to the appointment of a special prosecutor to head the Russia investigation. Comey said he had asked a friend at Columbia University to leak the content of one of his memos. Comey testified: “My judgment was that I needed to get that out into the public square.”

Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton asked Comey whether he believed that Trump had colluded with the Russians. Comey then responded: “It is a question I don’t think I should answer in an open setting.” He said that the question would be answered by special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Comey also testified claiming that the Trump administration “chose to defame me,” and that they told “lies, plain and simple” and that he was “confused” by Trump saying he was fired due to the Russia probe. “The administration chose to defame me and, more importantly, the FBI by saying the organization was in disarray … those were lies.”

Yet, to stop short of obstruction of justice, Comey then also said that he did not believe that either Trump nor his staff had asked him to stop the Russia investigation. Comey testified that the “shifting explanations” from the White House for why Trump fired him last month “confused” and increasingly concerned him.

Comey further revealed new details about his meeting with Trump during the transition when he briefed the President-elect on details of a salacious dossier drawn up by a former British spy. Comey said he didn’t want to create a “J. Edgar Hoover type situation” in which Trump concluded the bureau was trying to hold something over him. Hoover was famous for investigating people and creating a FBI dossier to blackmail politicians and presidents included.

Since the 1970s, FBI directors have tried to maintain a discrete distance from the president because of J. Edgar Hoover’s abused of the FBI. This unwritten rule grew out of reforms that followed the often questionable behavior of J. Edgar Hoover, who served from 1935 to 1972. Hoover’s relationships with six different presidents often became dangerously close to trying to rule the country covertly. Yet Comey has opening asked for a Special Prosecutor doing much the same thing for this is how to at least prevent Trump for pushing forward any reform agenda.

FBI today has authority only for investigating violations of federal law, pursuing counter-terrorism cases and disrupting the work of foreign intelligence operatives. Anything beyond these raises serious constitutional jurisdictional questions. When John F. Kennedy became president in 1961 and his brother Robert Kennedy was made attorney general, Hoover could not ignore the attorney general as he had been doing. Hoover stopped passing on intelligence reports to JFK. He disagreed with the Kennedys and their policies, so Hoover began investigating not crimes, but people and their personal lives for blackmail. Hoover was collecting information on JFK’s extramarital affairs. Then in 1964, Hoover’s FBI investigated Jack Valenti, a special assistant and confidant of President Lyndon Johnson. Despite Valenti’s two-year marriage to Johnson’s personal secretary, the investigation focused on rumors that he was having a gay relationship with a commercial photographer friend.

This is what Comey meant about the dossier drawn up by a former British spy. He said he briefed Trump because he didn’t want to create a “J. Edgar Hoover type situation” since it was the same thing – diving into personal affairs. He said he was intent upon leaving the impression with Trump that the FBI was not investigating him despite the fact that the Democrats hire this British Spy to do what Hoover had done.

Comey  said Trump’s comments that the FBI was in disarray and that it was poorly led and had lost confidence in his leadership, were “lies, plain and simple, and I am so sorry that the FBI workforce had to hear them, and I am so sorry that the American people were told them.” But if people lost confidence in the FBI after the Hillary email investigation within the FBI, they would not have told him. What Comey failed to consider is that a lot of people did lose confidence in his investigation. His words calling them lies are just opinion solely from his perspective. There were many on Capitol Hill on both sides of the political spectrum who expressed that opinion that Comey was out of control.

Comey then did his best to disparage Trump saying from the moment he met the President-elect during the transition, he decided to create a written record of their meetings. He said: “I was honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of our meeting.” He then said that he knew that one day he might need a written record of their conversations to defend himself and the FBI. This was a very clairvoyant moment that seems disingenuous to say the least. To defend the FBI? Reading between the lines it seems to be confirming the position of the Gang of Four, in the intelligence community of which Comey was a member, all had an anti-Trump agenda. Reuters reported on November 19th, 2016 that Carter and Clapper demanded  Obama fire Michael Rogers. Rogers didn’t want to participate in the Obama spying scheme led by Clapper. All the information warned that there was indeed a soft-coup against Trump that was organized by Obama and that Clapper was deeply involved. Comey was part of the Gang of Four. I go into this is detail in the Impeachment Report on Donald Trump.

Leaking information is a crime. Nonetheless, Comey said that he believed it was his right to publicize the details of what he viewed were unclassified recollections of his conversation with Trump in his role as a private citizen. He makes the distinction saying his leaks were AFTER he was fired. He then said he asked his friend to take the action rather than doing it himself because the press was camped outside his house and it would have been like feeding “seagulls at the beach.” He said he gave all of his memos to Mueller.

Comey said that he took the President’s expression of “hope” that he could ease off of Flynn as a directive. Previously, he testified that the DOJ will often express its “opinion” but that is not a directive. He seems to be trying to lay a vague enough foundation for a Trump Impeachment. Comey clearly wanted to help paralyze the nation and stop the Trump agenda of any reform be keeping this saga of Russian election hacking and alleged collusion by Trump aides in play to cast a very dark cloud over the new administration. He knows very well what he is doing and it’s all about stopping any reform process.

Democrats will highlight the stunning revelation of Comey’s testimony, that his statement that Trump asked him to halt the FBI probe into Flynn’s conversations during the transition with Russia’s ambassador to Washington. Trump’s words are by no means a directive: “‘I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
“I replied only that ‘he is a good guy.’” Comey wrote, then added: “I did not say I would ‘let this go.’”

So now we will have attempts to impeach that are not likely to actually force Trump to leave office. The agenda here seems to be to prevent any of his promises of reform taking place. This appears to be the McCain agenda as well.

Comey & the Super Bowl of Politics

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.


What does Trump have in Common with Emperor Nero? Fake News & the Deep State?

As we approach what is being touted as a Super Bowl of politics with Comey’s testimony people are making bets will end Trump’s Presidency for good, it is curious how one Roman Emperor was taken down by the Deep State and declared a public enemy driving him to suicide. The Roman Emperor Nero (54-68AD) gets a bad rap from history. The popular one is his burned Rome so he could build a palace and played the fiddle as it all unfolded. During July of 64 AD, a great fire ravaged Rome for six days, destroying 70% of the city and leaving half its population homeless. The fakes news created by his enemies was that the decadent and unpopular Nero, “fiddled while Rome burned.” That story was crafted by his enemies who today would be CNN and the Democrats along with the Washington Post and New York Times. It was clearly the ancient fabrication of fake news.

For one thing, the fiddle didn’t exist in ancient Rome since it only made its appearance during the 11th century. There is no such evidence that Nero played anything during the great fire. The Roman historian Publius Cornelius Tacitus (c. 56–120AD)  wrote that Nero was rumored to have sung about the destruction of Troy while watching the city burn; however, he stated clearly that this was unconfirmed by eyewitness accounts. That was the origin of the saying. When the Great Fire broke out, Nero was at his villa at Antium, some 35 miles from Rome.


Britannicus-BNero’s unpopularity developed originally from his mother, Agrippina, Jr., who was a dominate mother and a power hungry woman with many attributed of Hillary Clinton. Agrippina, Jr. was the first woman whose portrait appeared on gold coins during her lifetime. She was first banished by her brother Caligula for being suspected of a plot against him to take the throne. She was very lucky to escape that one with her life. She the connived to marry her uncle, Claudius. The plot then thickens for Claudius’s heir, his son Britanicus, is then poised. Some attributed this to Nero, but it seems more likely the deed of his mother. Upon Claudius’s death, which she also may have aided with poison, she really rules the empire in her son’s name who was still a teenage boy.

Nero fought with his mother who was really ruling the empire and dominating him in the process. Eventually, Nero broke free by having his mother at last killed. He stages a death by drowning to make it look like an accident when her barrage sank. But she swam ashore and he ordered her killed on the spot. Her last words were to stab her in her womb from which he was born.

These stories clearly circulated in Rome and resulted in Nero being very unpopular. His father Gnaeus Domitius Ahenobarbus (c. 2 BC–41 AD) had a dreadful reputation that stained the image of Nero from the start. His father was known for cheating bankers for purchases he made and for cheating refusing to pay the prize money of victorious charioteers. He was also a major womanizer and the Emperor Tiberius charged him with treason, adultery and incest with his sister and also with adultery with another noblewoman. He was saved only by Tiberius’ death and the ascension of Caligula, his brother-in-law.

The true story of Nero, not the fake news version crafted by his enemies as we see going on by CNN and others today with respect to Trump, was that Nero immediately returned and began relief measures to help the people. They still didn’t trust him for his reputation preceded him. His enemies started the rumor that Nero had ordered the fire started, especially after he used land cleared by the fire to build his Golden Palace and its surrounding pleasure gardens. That was not a good decision, which only created conspiracy theories.

Nero himself blamed the Christians for the fire, and had many arrested and executed beginning the Christian persecutions when he was not executing them for their religion at that time. The real source of the stories against Nero are identical in human nature to those spun by career politicians and mainstream media against Trump today. The issue was reforming the corruption in the Senate.

There were many people complaining about the corruption of the tax collectors and this began Nero’s battle against the Deep State – sound familiar? Nero took on the fight clashing with the bureaucracy that set in motion his own demise. Tax collectors were accused of being corrupt and too harsh with the poor. Nero championed the little guy and transferred collection of tax authority to lower commissioners. Nero banned also any magistrate or procurator from exhibiting public entertainment for fear that the venue was being used as a method to sway the populace to support their corruption behind the scenes. Furthermore, Nero then impeached many officials for corruption and removed them from government as well as having many arrested for extortion and corruption.

As further complaints arose from the people that the poor were being overly taxed, Nero attempted to repeal all indirect taxes. The Senate convinced him this action would bankrupt the public treasury. As a compromise, taxes were cut from 4.5% to 2.5%. He also began the first debasement of the silver coinage whereas the average fineness pre-64AD was 97.5% as this was reduced to 93.5%. The weight of the silver denarius was also reduced from 3.63 grams to 3.36 grams in 64AD.

Additionally, secret government tax records were now ordered to become public, similar to the $2.3 trillion in missing funds handed to the Pentagon that 911 covered up. To lower the cost of food imports, Nero also directed that merchant ships were declared tax-exempt. None of these measures were Draconian to say the least, but were efforts to weed-out corruption far more than modern governments are willing to carry out. The Deep State was getting very angry at reducing their corruption.

Nero not only reduced taxes, he also gave slaves permission to file civil complaints against unjust masters, which was very shocking to many. Now the elite really got angry. Nero also imposed a tax of 4% on the sale of slaves that was to be remitted by the seller. Nevertheless, purchasers typically found that the tax was merely added as part of the price in a European VAT fashion.

Seneca the Younger (c. 4 BC – AD 65), was a Roman Stoic philosopher and statesman. He was a tutor and later advisor to Emperor Nero. Seneca had a hand in financial reform to improve the financial administration of the Empire. Governors were actually being prosecuted for extortion rather than the modern version of too-big-to-jail. The emperor by an edict forbade any magistrate or procurator in the government of a province to exhibit a show of gladiators, or of wild beasts, or indeed any other public entertainment. This was typically the method Governors bought favor from the people to cover-up the extensive bribery and extortion.

Nero also established retirement colonies of veterans in Italy. There were simply many deed he enacted prior to 64AD that reveal a decent administrator of the Empire. Nero even attempted to promote free trade by removing all indirect taxes. However, this proved too difficult to administer due to the pervasive corruption.

The Deep State conspired to kill Nero for his reforms. Some sources state that Seneca may have been innocent, but he was also implicated and forced to take his own life for alleged complicity in the Pisonian conspiracy to assassinate Nero. The conspiracy of Gaius Calpurnius Piso in AD 65 was a major turning point for it was clearly the Deep State rising up against Nero. The plot reflected the growing discontent among the ruling class of the Roman state with Nero’s increasingly attack upon corruption. Piso was a leading Roman statesman who it was said intended to have Nero assassinated and replace him as Emperor through acclamation by the Praetorian Guard. He was joined by many prominent senators, equestrians, and soldiers. The conspirators were said to have varying motives. Some wished to replace Nero with a better emperor, others wished to be free of emperors altogether, and restore a purely Republican form of government. According to the Roman historian Tacitus, the ringleaders included a Praetorian tribune named Subrius Flavus, and a centurion named Sulpicius Asper, who helped Piso devise the plot, which was discovered when a woman named Epicharis tried to solicit Proculus, a fleet captain in Campania, to join the conspiracy. Instead, Proculus turned her in, but she committed suicide. Another named Milichus discovered the conspiracy and reported it to Nero’s secretary Epaphroditos. When arrested, many conspirators quickly ratted everyone else out to save themselves. Nero ordered Piso, the philosopher Seneca, his nephew Lucan, and the satirist Petronius to commit suicide.

There is clearly the same plot to overthrow Trump. History repeats because human nature never changes. We have all the elites on Capitol Hill plotting to get ride of Trump and to justify some sort of impeachment trail. Surely, neither Trump nor those who conspire against him on Capital Hill and in the media will commit suicide.  Nevertheless, they are fighting tooth and nail for the very same issue – to maintain the corruption behind the curtain. They too are creating fake news to justify their actions today as they did back then.

Ah – how history repeats. Just follow the money.

Dear Senator – Someone, Anyone, Please Follow-Up With Comey Today On This Line of Inquiry…

On March 20th, 2017 a young freshman representative from New York named Elise M. Stefanik used a probative timeline to question FBI Director James Comey.  Using simple common sense Ms. Stefanik single-handily exposed a significant level of intentional intelligence community deception yet no-one seemed to notice.

In the segment of the questioning (video below) Rep. Stefanik begins by asking director Comey what are the typical protocols, broad standards and procedures for notifying the Director of National Intelligence, the White House and senior congressional leadership (aka the intelligence Gang of Eight), when the FBI has opened a counter-intelligence investigation.

The response from Comey is a generalized reply (with uncomfortable body language) that notification of counter-intel investigations are discussed with the White House, and other pertinent oversight officials, on a calendar basis, i.e. “quarterly”.

With the statement that such counterintelligence notifications happen “generally quarterly”, and against the backdrop that Comey stated in July of 2016 a counter-intel investigation began, Stefanik asks:

…”when did you notify the White House, the DNI and congressional leadership”?

BOOM! Watch an extremely uncomfortable Director James Comey outright LIE… by claiming there was no active DNI to notify -which is entirely false- James Clapper was Obama’s DNI.


Watch it again.

Watch that first 3:00 minutes again. Ending with:

…”Because of the sensitivity of the matter” ~ James Comey

FBI Director Comey intentionally obfuscates knowledge of the question from Rep Stefanik; using parseltongue verbiage to get himself away from the sunlit timeline.

The counter-intel investigation, by his own admission, began in July 2016. Congress was not notified until March 2017. That’s an eight month period – Obviously obfuscating the quarterly claim moments earlier.

The first and second questions from Stefanik were clear. Comey’s understanding of the questions was clear. However, Comey directly evaded truthful response to the second question. When you watch the video, you can see Comey quickly connecting the dots on where this inquiry was going.

There is only one reasonable explanation for FBI Director James Comey to be launching a counter-intel investigation in July 2016, notifying the White House and James Clapper (ODNI), and then keeping it under wraps from congress: James Comey was a participant in the intelligence gathering for political purposes – wittingly, or unwittingly.

It became clear during that testimony that Director Comey was using his office as a facilitating conduit for political purposes; presumably in favor of the 2016 White House.

Unfortunately, a slightly nervous Stefanik, never forced Comey to go back to the non-answered question and respond by saying:

No, Mr. Comey, there WAS a DNI in place in 2016, please answer the question of when did you notify him (James Clapper) and the White House?

….. then it would get a little ugly:

Why did you notify Clapper and the White House but delay congressional notification?

With all the banter about these hearings, and against this slight moment of clarity of purpose, it bears repeating:

There is only ONE KNOWN Factual and CRIMINAL activity currently identified: the unmasking and leaking of Mike Flynn’s name to the media.

FBI Director Comey stated his organization is “investigating”, fair enough.  Director Comey stated the investigation was a counterintelligence operation; again, fair enough.  However, not a single congress person followed-up to his admission and questioned why only he decided to act without oversight, and only this aspect of the investigation was kept secret from congress and the gang-of-eight.


Additionally, during this same March 20th testimony Director Comey stated there was an ongoing leak investigation.  However, almost two months later, on May 8th 2017, both James Clapper and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates stated they were unaware of any leak investigation and neither of them had been contacted or questioned as part of the supposed leak investigation.

How can there be a leak investigation if the key stake-holders who possessed the intelligence that was leaked have never been questioned?
