BREAKING: Andrew McCabe Admits To Deep State Plot To Overthrow President Trump

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is speaking to the media about how alarmed the DOJ allegedly was following the firing of then-FBI Director, James Comey. So much so he tells 60 Minutes in an exclusive interview that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed recruiting Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment. Here’s the problem for McCabe. IT WAS ROD ROSENSTEIN WHO RECOMMENDED TO PRESIDENT TRUMP THAT COMEY BE FIRED. In light of McCabe’s stunning admissions, that fact alone confirms what many have suspected all along. The Deep State was attempting to subvert the will of the American people and negate the results of the 2016 Election because the Deep State’s chosen candidate, Hillary Clinton, lost while the people’s chosen candidate, Donald Trump, won.

—————-

Via Yahoo News:

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe says that after President Trump fired his boss, FBI Director James Comey, there were discussions within the Department of Justice about invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

Last year, the New York Times reported that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed recruiting Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment.

McCabe confirmed the report in a new interview with “60 Minutes” host Scott Pelley, who relayed what McCabe told him on “CBS This Morning” Thursday.

“There were meetings at the Justice Department at which it was discussed whether the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet could be brought together to remove the president of the United States under the 25th Amendment,” Pelley said.

In a statement released by the Justice Department, Rosenstein said McCabe’s account of a discussion of invoking the 25th amendment was “inaccurate and factually incorrect.”

Trump responded in a pair of tweets later Thursday morning.

The discussions occurred between the time of Comey’s firing in May of 2017 and the appointment eight days later of special counsel Robert Mueller to oversee the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

According to the Times, Rosenstein also suggested that he secretly record Trump in the White House. Rosenstein disputed the account, and a Justice Department official said he made the remark sarcastically. But McCabe told Pelley that Rosenstein’s offer to wear a wire was made more than once and that he ultimately took it to the lawyers at the FBI to discuss.

McCabe, who was named acting director of the bureau after Comey’s firing, launched obstruction of justice and counterintelligence investigations into whether Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey.

——————

So, Rod Rosenstein goes to the Trump administration with a letter recommending the firing of James Comey. The Trump White House reviews the letter and its findings and agrees to the firing.

Immediately following that firing both Rosenstein and McCabe use it as legal justification for investigations being launched against President Trump, including, but not limited to, the Mueller investigation as well as ongoing discussion about removing Trump from office – all because the president agreed to go along with Rosenstein’s recommendation that Comey be fired. An avalanche of Deep State leaks to the media ensue, including leaks from former Obama Intelligence officials, all in an attempt to cripple the Trump presidency. (And also don’t forget how James Comey was rewarded with a nice fat government pension and a seven-figure book deal.) The media will of course attempt to spin this admission by McCabe as a story of how chaotic things were inside the Trump White House while in fact it’s an admission of guilt by McCabe for it was him and his Deep State cohorts who were creating that very chaos.

Whether you’re a Republican, a Democrat, Independent, or the “I don’t care guy” sitting on your couch right now, we should all agree on how wrong, how criminal, how abusive this entire Deep State fraud has been. The U.S. government is so corrupt, so divisive, so NOT working for the good of the American people and it knows and fears how effective President Trump has been at tearing down that status quo.

Did You Know James Comey’s Former Special Assistant Now Works For CNN? Might Explain Today’s Morning Raid Coverage…

Just a coincidence, right? The FBI conducts an early morning raid on Roger Stone’s Florida home and the only news organization who happens to be there to film it all in Zero Dark 30 style is CNN. Remarkable. Well, that is until you realize the direct link between former FBI head James Comey and a man who is currently employed by CNN. Mr. Comey is an already admitted leaker of classified information to the media. (Yet has never faced prosecution for that crime.) Is it really a stretch to say his hands are all over this CNN “scoop” of the Roger Stone raid? 

Josh Campbell worked for James Comey until February of last year. He was then quickly hired on by CNN as a “law enforcement analyst.”

Uh-huh.

People are noticing. Not yet enough to make CNN have to come clean – but they are noticing:

I guess it’s just a coincidence that Comey’s former assistant Josh Campbell works for CNN and they just happened to have a van at #RogerStone’s house at 6am.

The Deep State’s Desperate Attempt To Hide Barack Obama’s Secret Emails At All Cost…

Yes, the Deep State wanted to protect Hillary Clinton, but that protection was primarily motivated by its overwhelming desire to shield the Obama Machine, including Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett. Here is an exchange during the recent James Comey congressional testimony that confirms this fact. Note how Mr. Comey admits he knew of both private emails being used by Mrs. Clinton and Barack Obama while one was Secretary of State and the other President of the United States. Two secret emails. (Obama used a pseudonym for his email account and also lied publicly about having knowledge of Clinton’s even though he emailed her multiple times.) Why has the Establishment Media (and most politicians) said almost nothing about Obama’s secret email account? Because the Deep State has ordered them not to. Imagine what those secret Obama emails might uncover. Oh, just imagine…

The secret Obama emails are out there somewhere. The media has said nothing. Lawmakers have said (almost) nothing. And the Deep State, well the Deep State has allowed just enough “get Hillary Clinton” distraction to then use that time to likely bury those emails deep-deep-deep from any potential prying eyes. Why are former high-ranking Deep State officials like Clapper and Brennan so openly and aggressively attacking President Trump? Because POTUS Trump is the single greatest threat to getting to Barack Obama and the entirety of the Obama Machine, including Valerie Jarrett. That same Obama Machine is slated to make BILLIONS in the coming years via media licensing, foreign “investment”, kickbacks, etc., and there are a great many hands waiting to get their fair share of that multi-billions pie.

James Comey Openly Admits He’s A Partisan Hack Who Wanted Hillary Clinton To Win

How sad and disappointing to see these Deep State stooges publicly panicking over the multiple successes of the Trump presidency that has put so much power back into the hands of the American people by taking that power away from the entrenched government/globalist establishment. This week former FBI Director, James Comey, made clear that he has always been a Deep State player and not a defender of justice and freedom. His kind are legion and represent the great war President Trump has been waging to try and Make America Great Again.

The president’s tweet is in reference to this comment Comey made earlier this week as he attempts to sell a few more books. Comments in which Comey urges voters to “rid ourselves” of President Trump.

Here is where figures like Comey and their highly biased beliefs become very exposed for any and all willing to ask some simple questions.

What has Donald Trump done as president that has been so bad? Unemployment is way down. Job creation is way up. Wages are up. Home ownership has bounced back. Historic peace negotiations between North and South Korea are continuing. ISIS has been all but wiped out. Sweeping pro-American business trade negotiations are underway. The list of beneficial accomplishments goes on and on.

So, what’s the problem? Why such anger and animosity against a president who has done so much good for the American people? Ah, therein you find the source. James Comey, the Deep State, the globalists who fund such the establishment news and social media networks in this country, DON’T WANT AMERICA TO SUCCEED.

That can be the only reason that makes any sense. So, with that said, you must then ask yourself which side you choose to be on. Will you fall for the propaganda put out there by a partisan Deep State hack like James Comey or do you side with the current president, a true political outsider, who is trying to save America from self-inflicted disaster?

The choice, for now, is yours.

A Must-Read Swamp Road Map Linking Clintons,Comey,Rosenstein, Lerner, Mueller, Kerry, Obama, AND PUTIN’S RUSSIA…

If you read anything this week, this is it. The dots are connected and the motivation for a massive federal government coverup made clear. Even for those who’ve been paying attention, it’s gonna blow your mind.

READ. SHARE. EDUCATE.

H/T: Common Sense Evaluation:

———–

Guess who was transferred into the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?
Lois Lerner.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?
None other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame?
I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, Robert Mueller.

What do all four casting characters have in common?

They all were briefed and/or were front-line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

Now that’s just a coincidence, right?

Ok, let’s chalk the last one up to mere chance.

Let’s fast forward to 2009.

James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server by the way.

The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the Hillary.

Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to none other than, the Russians.

Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn. The American people got absolutely nothing out of it.

However, prior to the sales approval, none other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid $500k for a one-hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

OK, no big deal, right?

Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.

Guess who was the FBI Director during this timeframe?
Yep, Robert Mueller.

He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.

Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland.
None other than, yup, Rod Rosenstein.

Guess what happened to the informant?
The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.

How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?

Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?
145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?
None other than, you got it. Lois Lerner.

OK, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?

Let’s fast forward to 2015.

Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi, discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.

He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.

Sparing you the State Departments cover-up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this… they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.

Now, this is amazing. Guess who became FBI Director in 2013?
Guess who secured 17 no-bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six-million-dollar thank you present when he departed his employer.

None other than our pal, James Comey.

Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?

Now he, of course, is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” (after, of course, his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and, of course, exonerates her).

Nope couldn’t find any crimes there.

Can you guess what happened next?
In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy.

They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury.

Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton laughs as she celebrates with her husband, former President Bill Clinton at her caucus night rally in Des Moines, Iowa February 1, 2016. REUTERS/Adrees Latif

Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Homey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016 and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing.

Can you see the pattern?
It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General, Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.

FISA abuse, political espionage…. pick a crime, any crime, chances are…… this group and a few others were deeply involved in it.

All the same players.

All compromised and conflicted.

All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.

All connected in one way or another to the Clintons.

They are like battery acid. They corrode and corrupt everything they touch.

How many lives have these two destroyed?

As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

Let us not forget that Comey’s brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

REPORT: Andrew McCabe Seeks Immunity Deal To Go After James Comey & Others Within Obama Government

Former #2 at the FBI, Andrew McCabe, is said to be willing to sing for federal investigators looking into a vast anti-Trump conspiracy involving high-ranking officials within the Obama government including but not limited to, former Obama FBI Director James Comey. The swamp rats are now turning on each other.

Via True Pundit:

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has requested the Senate Judiciary Committee provide him with immunity from prosecution in exchange for testifying at an upcoming congressional hearing focused on how senior officials at the FBI and Justice Department handled the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, according to a letter obtained by CNN.

“Under the terms of such a grant of use immunity, no testimony or other information provided by Mr. McCabe could be used against him in a criminal case,” wrote Michael Bromwich, a lawyer for McCabe, to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, who has requested McCabe testify next week.

…The stakes for McCabe’s appearance, however, are particularly high. The former No. 2 at the FBI is entangled in a separate criminal investigation stemming from an earlier report from the inspector general’s office that concluded he lied to internal investigators. McCabe has steadfastly denied wrongdoing, but any congressional testimony he provides could have serious implications for his criminal case.

“Mr. McCabe is willing to testify, but because of the criminal referral, he must be afforded suitable legal protection,” Bromwich wrote to Grassley. “This is a textbook case for granting use immunity. . . . If this Committee is unwilling or unable to obtain such an order, then Mr. McCabe will have to no choice but to invoke his Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination.”

James Comey Was Recently “Grilled” During DOJ Interview – Establishment Media Ignores

Obama-era FBI Director James Comey is said to have had a rather uncomfortable interview with federal investigators recently regarding potentially pending criminal charges against Comey’s #2 at the FBI – Andrew McCabe. It’s an astonishing turn of events that would indicate some federal prosecutors are now pushing back against the still-ongoing and highly controversial Mueller probe that was initiated in part by McCabe.

The “investigators” are now being investigated – big time.

Via ZeroHedge:

Federal investigators from the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s office recently interviewed former FBI director James Comey as part of an ongoing probe into whether former FBI #2 Andrew McCabe broke the law when he lied to federal agents…

What makes the interview particularly interesting is that Comey and McCabe have given conflicting reports over the events leading up to McCabe’s firing, with Comey calling his former deputy a liar in an April appearance on The View.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz issued a criminal referral for McCabe following a months-long probe which found that the former acting FBI Director leaked a self-serving story to the press and then lied about it under oath. McCabe was fired on March 16 after Horowitz found that he “had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor – including under oath – on multiple occasions.”

—————-

Here are where things get even more interesting. Whispers are circulating throughout D.C. that McCabe is open to making a deal with federal prosecutors which would initially put two very high profile targets in play: James Comey and Robert Mueller.

From there the entire Deep State anti-Trump operation could be exposed – ON RECORD including, but not limited to, a former President of the United States.

The wheels of power in motion to prevent that from happening will be significant.


 

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.

FBI Docs Catch Comey In ANOTHER Lie – Clinton Email Server Compromised By Unauthorized Source.

When he was FBI Director James Comey told Congress and the American people that Hillary Clinton’s (illegal) private email server was not hacked.

That was a lie. Comey’s own FBI said as much. This lie reveals yet further proof of the high-ranking cover-up that was underway on Clinton’s behalf and why the Deep State remains so determined to destroy Donald Trump. It’s this kind of information they don’t want getting out.


 

REPORT: Comey Secretly Communicated With Mueller Soon After Trump Fired Him. One Week Later Mueller Put In Charge Of Trump/Russia Investigation

During his book tour, James Comey has stated on camera that he doesn’t really know Robert Mueller. If that’s true then why are there now reports of him reaching out to Mueller almost immediately after being fired as FBI Director by President Trump? (A firing which was urged by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who then promptly appointed Robert Mueller to head the Trump/Russia investigation)

Comey has not disclosed his communications with Mueller nor has Mueller disclosed his communications with Comey. Hmmm…

Via True Pundit:

FBI: Comey Colluded with Mueller Hours After He Was Fired as FBI Director; Mueller Appointed Special Counsel Days Later

Former FBI boss James Comey talked with mentor and close friend Robert Mueller within hours after he was fired by President Trump, according to Bureau insiders with direct knowledge of the correspondences.
The first conversation between Mueller and his FBI protégé reportedly took place while Comey was traveling home from Los Angeles on a chartered Gulfstream Aerospace commissioned by the Justice Department, according to high-level FBI sources.
Incredibly, one week later, Mueller was appointed Special Counsel to take over Comey’s FBI Russia Trump investigation.
Neither Comey nor Mueller have publicly disclosed corresponding with each other between the eight days Comey was fired and Mueller was hired to run the Trump Russia investigation as Special Counsel.
Comey traveled on the FBI charter flight with a security detail which included five male FBI agents, sources said, in addition to a civilian flight crew. No one else was on the private flight which was chartered from a private corporation. The Justice Department did not own the twin-engine jet, sources said.
Comey was fired on May 9, 2017 while he was visiting the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office.
One week later on May 16, the first story of Comey’s secret memos about Trump surfaced in the New York Times, alleging the memos could prove President asked Comey to rig the Michael Flynn investigation. Those claims were recently debunked after Comey’s memos were made public this month.
Mere hours after the New York Times article, Mueller was appointed U.S. Special Counsel by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on May 17, 2017.

…Let’s see Mr. Comey’s and Mr. Mueller’s phone records and email between the time Comey was fired and Mueller was hired. Include the otherwise obscure records from the in-flight phones on the chartered Gulfstream.
Certainly those closely-guarded records are not part of any well-scripted happy ending for the embattled FBI.
But who in power in D.C. has the guts to do anything about it? Perhaps that is the bigger question.


 

REPORT: James Clapper Lied Under Oath Regarding Leaking Anti-Trump Dossier To CNN

A fake dossier was constructed by anti-Trump operatives eventually linked to the Hillary Clinton campaign. Obama government officials, knowing the dossier was highly suspect, proceeded to leak it to high-placed media allies in order to initiate and further promote its anti-Trump agenda. 

James Clapper, serving as Barack Obama’s National Intelligence Agency Director, appears to have clearly been among those involved.

Days earlier D.C. Whispers informed readers that Clapper’s name was about to become front and center in the ongoing investigation into the fake Trump Dossier as well as his part in coordinating the anti-Trump attack with other Obama-era officials including then-FBI Director James Comey.

It appears that time has now arrived:

Via The Federalist:

APRIL 27, 2018 By Sean Davis

A newly declassified report on Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections reveals that former intelligence chief James Clapper lied to Congress about information he shared with CNN on the infamous Steele dossier.

In one of the findings within the 253-page report, the House intelligence committee wrote that Clapper leaked details of a dossier briefing given to then-President-elect Donald Trump to CNN’s Jake Tapper, lied to Congress about the leak, and was rewarded with a CNN contract a few months later.

“Clapper flatly denied ‘discussing[ing] the dossier [compiled by Steele] or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists,’” the committee found.

When asked directly whether he had ever discussed the dossier with any journalists, Clapper replied that he had not, according to a transcript of the proceedings:

MR. ROONEY: Did you discuss the dossier or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists?

MR. CLAPPER: No.

The former DNI later changed his story after he was confronted specifically about his communications with Jake Tapper of CNN.

…Clapper, who previously lied to Congress about whether the U.S. government was electronically spying on millions of Americans, was subsequently hired by CNN just months after his leak. Although he eventually apologized to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) for lying to Congress about government mass surveillance of American citizens, he subsequently told MSNBC that the question to which he responded–“Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?”–was a gotcha question similar to, “When did you stop beating your wife?”


 

REPORT: Secret Meeting Between Obama & Comey Took Place Two Weeks Before Donald Trump Became President

James Comey never mentioned this meeting while testifying under oath to Congress. He never mentioned it in interviews to media, or in his book. In fact, the meeting that took place between himself and Barack Obama was so secret there was no official record of it having taken place at all.

Until now.

Via The Daily Caller:

The Daily Caller News Foundation and the watchdog group Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit in federal court Wednesday seeking records to determine the actual number of times and reasons former FBI Director James Comey met with then-President Barack Obama.

The request by the two organizations was filed because the former FBI director claimed he rarely met with Obama, and he was an independent and nonpartisan leader of the nation’s top law enforcement agency. The parties filed the lawsuit Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Comey’s impartiality about his relationship with Obama was sharply called into question by the Senate Committee on the Judiciary when its chairman, Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, uncovered a private, undisclosed meeting Comey held with Obama on Jan. 5, 2017, two weeks before Trump’s inauguration.

…Comey has carefully parsed his words about his interactions with Obama. In his June 8, 2017, testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence he suggested his firsthand meetings with the Democratic president were rare. He claimed he only spoke with Obama twice, once in 2015 and another “to say goodbye in late 2016,” according to the former FBI director’s testimony.

“As FBI director, I interacted with President Obama. I spoke only twice in three years,” he said. “I spoke alone with President Obama twice in person (and never on the phone) – once in 2015 to discuss law enforcement policy issues and a second time, briefly, for him to say goodbye in late 2016,” Comey’s opening statement to the Senate Intelligence Committee read.

Grassley along with South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham, who is a Judiciary subcommittee chairman, discovered through the National Archives that Obama met with Comey on Jan. 5, 2017, two weeks before Trump’s inauguration.

Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, recorded the meeting in an email around 12 p.m on Inauguration Day. She addressed the email to herself.

…In a Feb. 8, 2017, letter to Rice, Grassley and Graham wrote, “It strikes us as odd that, among your activities in the final moments on the final day of the Obama administration, you would feel the need to send yourself such an unusual email purporting to document a conversation involving President Obama and his interactions with the FBI regarding the Trump/Russia investigation.”

Biden and Yates joined Rice and Obama in the meeting.

By failing to inform the Congress about the Jan. 5 meeting, Comey may have deliberately misled Congress about his interactions with the former president.

…The FBI has not produced any records of Comey’s meetings, well beyond the 20-day deadline for FOIA responses. Both groups are asking the court to produce the records by a certain date and enjoin the FBI from “continuing to withhold any and all non-exempt records responsive to Plaintiffs’ FOIA requests.”

——————-

A longtime former D.C. staffer said this about the new information on the secret Comey-Obama meetings:

“The continued stalling within the FBI and DOJ to turn over Comey-Obama related docs has nothing to do with protecting James Comey. If need be he’s expendable. It’s all about protecting Barack Obama and his inner circle who are the ones pulling the strings on all of this. The plan is to delay-delay-delay until Trump is gone and the old order resumes. I recently had a media friend tell me something very interesting related to all of this. He said if they actually told the truth about what is really going on, how things really work in this country, there would be rioting in the streets. By lying to us 24/7 he thinks the media are performing a public service. How’s that line go? ‘You can’t handle the truth.’ He seems to think that’s pretty much true. We really don’t want the truth because we couldn’t handle it.”


 

BREAKING: James Comey Has Lawyered Up As He Prepares To Be Fully Investigated For FBI Wrongdoing

Oh, my – the investigator is apparently about to be investigated and if whispers are true – Mr. Comey is only one of many to come…

Via TPM:

…Two Capitol Hill sources independently confirmed to TPM that Fitzgerald was serving as a lawyer for Comey.

…Comey’s handling of the criminal probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, including his public pronouncements about the probe before the 2016 election, are among the matters currently under scrutiny in a wide-ranging investigation by the DOJ’s inspector general.

Fitzgerald currently works in private practice at the white-shoe firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. His first major victory was his prosecution of Omar Abdel Rahman, the blind sheik, for the first World Trade Center bombing, which he followed up by leading investigations into as al Qaeda figures including Osama bin Laden in the trials stemming from the bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. As U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, he helped put behind bars former Illinois Govs. Rod Blagojevich (D) and George Ryan (R).

—————

(It should be noted that both Blagojevich and Ryan became threats to Barack Obama’s then-entrance into national politics. Some have suggested the Obama Machine, with significant help from foreign agents, orchestrated what eventually became prison sentences for both men who were then used as examples for any others considering doing anything to damage Mr. Obama’s dramatic rise to political prominence.)


 

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.

Via The Hill:

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.


 

TRUMP vs DEEP STATE: “The War Is On”

A longtime D.C. staffer lays out where the Trump vs Deep State war is at and where it is now likely headed:

 

“…Regarding the silly DNC lawsuit against everyone/everything 2016 Election-related under the sun. They’ve been keeping that in their back pocket for a while now. The fact they played that card shows how desperate they are. The narrative is slipping away from them. They need to keep the truth hidden regarding what they did and what they’ve been doing with our elections for a very long time.”

“…Trump remains vulnerable to attack but he’s built up some impressive defenses and is quick to react. Know this. He has proven to be one tough SOB. Most would have collapsed by now. Trump is an absolute beast. I don’t know how he’s managed to hold on this long and now has the strength to be fighting back so hard. Amazing.”

“…A big background player in all of this is Clapper. Look for his name to suddenly pop up with a lot more frequency in the coming days.”

“…Besides the Trump White House, there are three main camps in all of this: the Clinton machine, the Obama machine, and the Deep State which controls the media narrative. The Deep State appears to be siding with the Obama machine which is leaving the Clintons more exposed than they have ever been. The unknown is who the Trump White House goes after the hardest from here on out. For now, it looks like they are letting their enemies knife one another. Smart. I’ve never once said Hillary Clinton could face charges. Guess what? I’m saying it now. She could. It really is getting that intense. Some in the media know it. They’re doing everything they can to prevent anything like that from happening but if they have to choose they’ll choose Obama over the Clintons and the Clintons know it.”

“…This town is buzzing more than it has in a long time. This war has a whole lot of people looking over their shoulder waiting for a shoe to drop. That puts Trump’s own danger level at its highest level since he took the Oath. For the first time since this war started his enemies are truly scared. That makes them even more dangerous.”

ALERT: Comey To Cancel Book Tour As DOJ Investigates His Illegal Classified Info Leaks?

James Comey has gone from supremely smug to increasingly concerned as the long list of alleged crimes he committed during his tenure as FBI Director continues to grow. Perhaps most notable are his repeated leaks of classified information in what was a clearly politically-motivated attempt to do harm to a then-newly elected president. 

Watch the video below as Mr. Comey learned on live television of the legal noose tightening around his Deep State neck…

Comey’s team is said to be considering shortening/ canceling his book tour and limiting all future media appearances. His publisher apparently wants the tour to continue, likely thinking bad press is still good press when it comes to potential book sales. Speaking of which any help in that regard is needed as the book tour has been marked by small turnouts and overall interest by readers toward the Comey tell-all has been minimal.


 

Democrats & Republicans All Agree – James Comey Is A Slimeball

He’s a liar, a self-promoting egotist, and a leaker of classified information. The fact he once headed the FBI is stunning given the more recent revelations of just how lacking in character and conviction he truly is.

Democrats & Republicans have finally found some common ground as they both agree that James Comey is a slimeball.

Via the Washington Times:

…He’s a windbag, a hack, a blowhard, a swaggering pretender, a churl and the hindquarters of a horse.

…With no reputation left, he lays out the ashes of it in his book, explaining how he consulted the polls to decide whether to reopen the inquiry into Hillary’s low sins and high misdemeanors:

“It’s entirely possible,” he writes, “that because I was making decisions in an environment where Hillary Clinton was sure to be the next president, my concern about making her an illegitimate president by concealing the restarted investigation bore greater weight than it would have if the election appeared closer [and] Donald Trump were ahead in all polls.”

This an astonishing admission of a man who was the nation’s chief law-enforcement officer. And we thought J. Edgar Hoover was a blight on the office. The U.S. Supreme Court always follows the election returns, in that hoary bit of prevailing political science, but this is a new one. The FBI follows not the election returns, but the Gallup Poll.

“It’s the exact opposite of how you would hope and expect someone refereeing a political criminal investigation to think,” observes Kyle Smith in National Review. “You want him to say, ‘damn the politics, I had to do what was right, and what was right was transparency. The people had a right to know what was going on. Criminal investigators don’t look at polling data.”

But of course they do. Mr. Comey’s tell-all book may be unique in the history of tell-all books because he’s telling all on himself. He has a lot to tell. He was doing what he thought was necessary to elect Hillary Clinton.

Remember The Time James Comey Admitted Barack Obama Was Guilty Of Obstruction Of Justice?

The Establishment Media sure has forgotten. Barack Obama went out on national television and effectively shut down any hope of a fair and honest investigation into Hillary Clinton. After then-President Obama give Mrs. Clinton a free pass, James Comey’s FBI acted to ensure the outcome followed the guidance/declaration of the president.

That’s far more “obstructive” than anything Donald Trump ever did. So why isn’t Robert Mueller investigating Barack Obama? The answer is quite simple. Both men are playing for the same Deep State team…
