Just-Disclosed Emails Prove Comey Colluded With Mueller Right Before Congressional Testimony

It isn’t even a question any longer. The Mueller investigation is a disgusting Deep State operation intended to damage a president. Further proof of this is just-disclosed emails that detail direct collusion between Special Counsel Robert Mueller and former FBI Director James Comey that had Mueller coaching Comey on what to say and not to say when testifying before Congress – like two snakes intertwined in some Deep State dance as they work to deceive the American people and cover up their own very serious wrongdoing.

Former FBI Director Comey Consulted with Mueller on Russia Testimony

Judicial Watch discovers emails revealing coordination

A government watchdog group revealed Thursday that former FBI Director James Comey was advised by senior FBI officials to seek Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s advice prior to testifying before “any congressional committee” about President Donald Trump’s campaign and its alleged collusion with Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election, according to new emails obtained by Judicial Watch.

Comey was also advised to seek Mueller’s counsel on the circumstances surrounding his firing by Trump before providing testimony to Congress, the Department of Justice emails obtained by Judicial Watch reveal. It is the first time evidence reveals there was coordination between the Special Counsel and Comey in the long drawn out controversial Mueller investigation.

“These documents show that James Comey, who was fired by the president, nevertheless had easy, friendly access to the FBI as he prepped his infamous anti-Trump testimony to the Senate,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, in a press release. “This collusion led to Comey’s attacking President Trump and misusing FBI records as part of a vendetta against the president.”

“The emails, along with news reports, also reveal that Comey met with Mueller prior to his June 8, 2017, testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee…”
In one of the email chains dated May 19, 2017, shortly after Comey was fired by Trump, his then Chief of Staff James Rybicki sends an email chain to then FBI Deputy Director McCabe, FBI Deputy Director David L. Bowdich, former FBI General Counsel James A. Baker, among others and says, “Please see a DRAFT response to Director Comey (below). I will hold pending further direction….”

The email states:

In response to your emails below we have consulted with executive management here, including the General Counsel, and recommend the following

That your counsel convey any acceptance or declinations to invitations to testify directly to the Committees.
That your counsel consult with Special Counsel Mueller to determine the timing of any such testimony and, [Emphasis added]
The Office of General Counsel stands ready to discuss with you in consultation with the Department of Justice and the Special Counsel, institutional privileges or prerogatives that may be presented by any such testimony.
The emails, along with news reports, also reveal that Comey met with Mueller prior to his June 8, 2017, testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee and, according to Judicial Watch, that testimony was coordinated with Mueller.

During Comey’s June 8, 2017 testimony before the Senate he revealed that he had leaked information from memos he created on his meetings with Trump while he was still director of the FBI. He gave those memos to his friend, Columbia law professor Daniel Richman, who then leaked them to The New York Times. Comey admitted that he leaked the memos with the intention that they be leaked to the news organization with the hope that it would lead to a special counsel investigation of the President.

No Collusion, No Obstruction. Comey Is A Dishonest Leaker.

The anti-James Comey tide continues to rise both in and outside of Washington D.C. The “Comey memos” have further solidified President Trump’s long-standing assertions he did nothing wrong while also portraying Comey as a shockingly dishonest and calculating operative for the “Never Trump” movement.

Memos don’t prove ‘obstruction’ — they further cement Comey’s legacy as a leaker

We now have the FBI memorandums and emails drafted by James Comey to document his nine interactions with President Trump. House Republicans lobbied the Justice Department for access to the infamous musings and then promptly released them.

Having just read Comey’s ode to “ethical leadership,” “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” I pored over this document dump with the anticipation of investigative dot-connection. From a quarter-century in the FBI, I know the agency’s paperwork; bureaucracies are built on paper. The 15 pages of these seven memos seemed certain to provide the “smoking gun” that the polarized sides of our political divide were anticipating or dreading.

My immediate reaction? The memos are as disappointing as Geraldo Rivera’s two-hour live TV foray into Al Capone’s vault in 1986.

Beyond the gossip-worthy charge from Comey that Trump questioned the judgment of his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, Comey’s writing showcases a wonderful flair for the descriptive that reflects his never having been an FBI agent and his inexperience in preparing testimonial or corroboration documents for the bureau.

From their earliest days at the FBI Academy, special-agent trainees are instructed to draft documents that succinctly capture the relevant, salient portions of an interview: Stick to the facts; no suppositions or opinions allowed; only describe items or utterances that demand description; anything you put on paper will be subject to scrutiny from seasoned defense attorneys. As with many things, less is more.

Comey’s memos were written in novel-like form — almost as if they were being prepared with a tell-all book in mind.

Then, he queried his deputy director, chief-of-staff and senior counsel as to the appropriateness of his classification choices for these memos. The classifications were either “secret” or “confidential.” All contained the acronym “NOFORN,” indicating “no foreign nationals” should view them. There are numerous redactions in the released documents, with four of the seven containing classified information.

And that may prove to be Comey’s Waterloo.

…The book tour has further contributed to his diminution. He has appeared less noble and more petty, self-serving and vindictive with each passing interview.

The memos further highlight his misplaced notion that he is, “the last honest man in Washington.” He has become a caricature of that once carefully crafted image. He is now sullied beyond repair.
