Screw You James Comey – What’s Good For The Goose…

Hypocrisy, thy name is…

According to the New York Times, FBI Director James Comey is reported to be requesting the President Trump Department of Justice to refute the possibility of the FBI having intercepted communications from Trump Tower in the latest “Wire Tapping” denial.

So lets give this request by Director Comey some context.

comey-2mccabe-preibus

It was only a few weeks ago when the same FBI went to President Trump’s Chief of Staff and told Reince Priebus there was no truth to media reports, based on FBI leaks, of FBI evidence showing Trump campaign officials involved with Russian officials regarding the 2016 election.  It was all a complete nothingburger.

Details – On February 15th while discussing another issue FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe asked Reince for 5 minutes alone after the meeting.  At the one-on-one meeting McCabe told Priebus the New York Times Russia and Trump campaign story was a “bunch of BS”.

Priebus asked McCabe if McCabe would be able to say that publicly and get the media off his back about a ridiculously false narrative.  Asst. Director McCabe said he would check with his boss, FBI Director James Comey.  Later, McCabe called back and said he couldn’t issue a statement about it.

Reince Priebus was simply asking for the FBI to give truthful information about the false reports to the public.  The White House was asking Comey to deliver transparency.

Quote from the FBI to Priebus: “We’d love to help, but we can’t get into the position of making statements on every story”.

Oh, but now, when there are “false wire-tapping reports” about Director Comey, now, N.O.W he wants the Trump administration, via the DOJ, to help him out and deny the FBI had any involvement in surveillance of Trump Tower, candidate Donald Trump or President-Elect Donald Trump.

Now, when it fits Comey’s preferred sensibility.  Now he wants a clear and transparent record.  The hypocrisy is thick with this guy.

When the White House was asking Comey to clear the record, Comey says: “we’d love to help, but”…  However, now that the shoe is on the other foot Comey is full of righteously indignant appeals to the White House for clarity.

Screw you James Comey!

My advice to President Trump and team would be for them to tell Director Comey to go ahead and hold a press conference and deny the wire-tapping/surveillance himself.  And while he’s at it, he can clear up all of the nonsense surrounding these ridiculous media assertions which appear to be based entirely on leaks from his FBI community.

Go ahead Director Comey, hold your own damn press conference.  You did it for Obama and Hillary Clinton, do it again now.  Don’t go looking to hide behind the skirt of Attorney General Jeff Sessions just because all of the eyes are upon you now.

I’d be telling FBI Director James Comey to defend his own damned poorly run department.  The same poorly run politicized department that is apparently the primary source of all the leaks causing the trouble.

Sometimes ya just gotta be honest and admit the baby is damn ugly.

      Quote from the article linked above in deplorable vespucciland comment:

      “The appropriate statute, 18 U.S. Code Chapter 37, section 798, on the “Disclosure of classified information,” authorizes prosecution of those who leak,

      **and those who publish the leaks.**

      The relevant sections “do not exempt any class of professionals, including reporters, from their reach,” as one Justice Department official has testified.”

      (Emphasis mine KBR)

      Freedom of the press is NOT freedom to commit crimes!

He has told us by his actions he is a liar and someone who looks out for himself. It’s okay. President Trump is playing a 3 tiered chess game and everyone else is still playing checkers. We as a nation are in the throws of labor pains, this has to happen to truly MAGA God Bless America

    IMHO Comey is the one who told Trump about the tapping, as it wasn’t the FBI who ordered it, but the DoJ. That’s why he’s asking the DoJ to refute the claims, not the FBI, so as not to incriminate his organization…. But, that’s just my opinion.

      I think it is something along those lines. I will never forget how Trump greeted Comey, after the inauguration, when Trump had that Thank You gathering for the law enforcement and security people after that weekend. Comey arrived a little late, and Trump greeted him effusively, made him come across the room in front of everyone and gave him a bear hug. They replayed the video of that on Fox and Friends today (or some show, I forget which one.) I think the WH knows exactly why Comey said this. And how/ to whom did he say it? Was it a leak to trap a leaker?

      If i understand correctly, Sessions only recused himself from campaign matters. Anything after election day should be fair game. Hopefully grand juries have been empaneled and indictments are forthcoming.

      Any Democrat efforts to stall the AG assistant appointment this week should be met with nothing less than the full nuclear option. McConnell wasted no time getting his wife approved. Time to use that as leverage if he waffles this week.

    People have been going back and forth on Comey since last July when he made the ridiculous statement that “no reasonable prosecutor blah-blah-blah.” I’ve never wavered in my view that Comey is a crap weasel of the highest order. He should be run out of the FBI on a rail. Let’s make it a 2-for-1 and add tar and feathers.

        Something that happened to Comey 40 years ago has been sticking in my mind for months. When Comey was 17, a guy kicked down their front door and held Comey and
        his younger brother hostage at gunpoint. They escaped, and the guy managed to re-
        capture them. ( It sounds like a Hardy Boys story when I’m typing it). Finally, the police
        managed to rescue them. The guy was a convicted robber and rapist.

        What’s been sticking in my mind is this. This is out there. Maybe I’ve watched too many
        movies. Was Comey selected to be “conditioned” for future uses back then? A taller,
        whiter version of Obama’s Manchurian Candidate?

            There is a CIA program known as MK Ulta. Look it up.
            This may have been a failed first attempt at just that.
            There is speculation about Ozeros mother being a chosen one by said program thru her commie parents. They pick them for different traits and use them for different activities including possibly impregnating a 17 year old white female by a man known as Frank Marshall Davis in Hawaii and later covering up his identity with that of a Kenyan black student at that time.
            Remember when President Trump gave the conference where he stated that he was finally convinced O had been born in the USA? That’s where the birth certificate saga of Ozero begins . This is all speculation by many but it’s unknown of course . Just possibilities . A Manchurian candidate he was indeed. That is believed by a huge number of Americans.

          ‘Comey’s conception of right and wrong, and his career-defining passion for law enforcement, were undoubtedly shaped by a terrifying 1977 incident that—at the age of 17—first brought him into contact with the criminal justice system. As he recalled in 2014, during an interview for CBS’s 60 Minutes: “I was a high school senior and home alone one night with my younger brother, and a guy—a gunman—kicked in our front door at our home in New Jersey and held the two of us captive.”

          ‘After the brothers escaped from their assailant, they were recaptured, escaped a second time, and finally managed to contact police, at which point the intruder—a notorious local robber and rapist—vanished into the night. Although neither Comey nor his brother suffered physical injuries, he was haunted for years by the horrific episode. Decades later, he credited it with having made him “a better prosecutor and investigator” who was better able to relate to other victims of crime.’

          Instead, he makes this bizarre request of his boss to deny a story in the paper, while knowing full well that just because HE doesn’t know about it, it may still be true.

          Of course, we only have “senior American officials” as the source of this Comey story. It’s also possible that Comey said no such thing.

    To expand on a thought I posted last evening:

    Supposedly there were two FISA warrant requests, a criminal one in June that was denied, and a national security one in October that was granted. Comey wants DOJ to issue a statement that the FBI did not wiretap Trump Towers.

    We know the Obama crew doesn’t follow laws they don’t like, and have no qualms about using government agencies for political purposes (remember IRS charity denials to Tea Party groups). We also know they have no qualms about lying, but will sprinkle in enough truth to camouflage the lie and make the statement arguably true.

    So how do we fit together the puzzle pieces we know about? Here are some suggestions. What if the DOJ did obtain a FISA warrant to conduct national security surveillance of Trump Towers in October, but what if it was not the FBI that conducted the surveillance? What if it was some other group? Maybe one not authorized to operate domestically? Maybe one not authorized to spy on Americans? Or maybe a little group within a group, or even a third party conducting it? And what if some of the intelligence pre-dates the October warrant? What if the warrant was just a cover, a veneer of legality? And what if the FBI has seen the intelligence gathered, but doesn’t know who obtained it?

    No wonder no one wants to touch this. And Trump can’t talk about it because he now knows stuff he can’t let slip, like how we come to know some of the things we know.

      Actually, the more I think about it, the more it all begins to sound like some clever mischief created by an old spymaster. With no dog in the fight in the American election, why not poison both wells?

      American intelligence agencies start getting all of this information coming in about both candidates, some of which appears to be the real deal, but don’t know where it’s coming from or how much is legit and how much is disinformation (Hoover in a dress type stuff). They suspect they know where it’s coming from, but can’t let on which parts they have, or even that they have any of it, because that would betray what they have access to and what they don’t. Since it is domestic stuff they get a FISA warrant just to cover looking at it and distributing it. People being people, some can’t resist using some of it politically, but basically they don’t know what to do with it.

      Meanwhile, while we chase our tails and each others’ tails …

    I believe there WAS a tapping of Trump’s communications. I watched Judge Napolitano this morning. Per the Judge, Obama has direct command over the NSA as they are part of the military. All Obama had to do was pick up the phone and call NSA to order a wiretap. Hillary tweeted out October 31st that connections had been found between Trump and Russian banks. How would she know unless servers were being monitored? And she would have had to know…. Stories of the wiretaps are in all the liberal rags that have sought to bring down Trump. Now they are hoisted on their own petard.
