New York Times: President Trump Asked Comey To End Flynn Investigation…

Always remember the basic rule that has been proven accurate 100% of the time:

  • When the CIA wants to leak a damaging story they coordinate with the Washington Post and ABC. (and vice-versa).
  • When the State Dept. or FBI/DOJ wants to leak a damaging story they coordinate with CNN and the New York Times. (and vice-versa)

This consistent pattern has NEVER been broken.

There is also a particular transparency here with regard to media timing and intent.  The Washington Post (yesterday) and New York Times (today) are attempting to frame the anti-Trump narrative right before he goes on his first overseas trip.

Dual benefits for antagonistic media and political opposition:

♦ Trump team is out of country and unable to defend administration on-camera, while frenzy ensues 24/7 in U.S media, and ♦ Trump team becomes relentlessly questioned by traveling press corps abroad on domestic controversy, diminishing Trump international status and pushing the weak/damaged Trump image toward the host nation optic.

It’s how they roll.  Again, check out the timing:

Another explosive media story targeted, yet again, specifically to create controversy and lead the evening news cycle.

As to the substance of the matter – WE PREDICTED EXACTLY THIS SCENARIO – Less than a week ago we outlined the specific strategy being utilized to attack President Trump’s credibility in office.

WASHINGTON — President Trump asked the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, to shut down the federal investigation into Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, in an Oval Office meeting in February, according to a memo Mr. Comey wrote shortly after the meeting.

“I hope you can let this go,” the president told Mr. Comey, according to the memo.

The existence of Mr. Trump’s request is the clearest evidence that the president has tried to directly influence the Justice Department and F.B.I. investigation into links between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia.  (read more)

The New York Times reports this oval office meeting between President Trump and FBI Director James Comey took place on Valentines Day, February 14th, 2017.

[…] The Feb. 14 meeting took place just a day after Mr. Flynn was forced out of his job after it was revealed he had lied to Vice President Mike Pence about the nature of phone conversations he had had with the Russian ambassador to the United States.

As we said last week:  ‘For several months the media have been steadfast in their efforts to turn this into Watergate 2.0.  To achieve that objective the political angle-players and media need only to paint Trump into a corner with a credible accusation of the president interfering with an FBI investigation (Flynn).   Against the timeline above, as played out this week with Sally Yates testimony to congress, they are only a couple more timely misinformation leaks and twisted reports away from making that happen’. (more)

Well?

According to the Times report, Comey did nothing at the time (Feb. 14th), or throughout the time between the meeting until he was fired.

[…] After writing up a memo that outlined the meeting, Mr. Comey shared it with senior F.B.I. officials. Mr. Comey and his aides perceived Mr. Trump’s comments as an effort to influence the investigation, but they decided that they would try to keep the conversation secret — even from the F.B.I. agents working on the Russia investigation — so the details of the conversation would not affect the investigation. (link)

Notice how Comey’s aides state they kept the memo secret from FBI agents working on the Russia investigation.  Convenient huh?  This is how the current storytellers get around McCabe’s testimony to congress where he stated the administration had made no efforts to influence the investigation.

Again, to the NYT article:

In testimony to the Senate last week, the acting F.B.I. director, Andrew G. McCabe, said, “There has been no effort to impede our investigation to date.”

Mr. McCabe was referring to the broad investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. The investigation into Mr. Flynn is separate.

The New York Times makes sure they draw that useful notation.

This is all scripted.  All of it.  From timing, to substance, to intent, to vague disingenuous and anonymous “sources”, etc.

This is a scripted and coordinated left-wing media construct.

    I previously erroneously attributed a statement made by Acting Dir. McCabe to Comey. In a WP article from 5 days ago (does not give the actual date, just 5 days ago), McCabe was asked if President Trump has interfered in the Russia investigation. McCabe said that if he did, he (McCabe) would be obligated to notify Congress because they have oversight. McCabe also said that there has been no effort to impede the investigation by the President to date.

    Comey was obligated to notify Congress if such an attempt was made to stop the Flynn investigation according to what McCabe said. If Comey did not report such conduct by the President to Congress, it should prove that the President did no such thing. Comey has a lot to answer for as to why he did not report the interference in a timely manner. It sure looks like the memo was just made up.

    I am sorry for giving Comey credit for something McCabe said.

    In what can clearly be called a “can you hear me now” election, we historically send a citizen (not a career politician) to the presidency to cleanse the gangrenous rot in our nation’s capital. He is immediately and unceasingly attacked by the imbedded deep state, and may indeed be overthrown by these true enemies of democracy. It is long past time that conservatives find their voices and loudly “reach out” to President Trump’s detractors in Congress. They must be made to understand how close they really are to fulfilling Thomas Jefferson’s dire prophecy regarding the tree of liberty.

    I may have missed it, but I have yet to see Comey claiming the memo story is true, or even that the media asked him to comment on it. Why would you run a story of this magnitude on anonymous sources when comey is not asked for his take on it?

    If Comey knew of a crime in February he had a duty to report it to the DOJ at the time not hold the information back.

    Means, motive, opportunity:
    Means:
    The Obama/Hillary has the means, they have access to leaks from highly placed federal employees. The White House leaks simply show that Obama’s 8 years left a lot of people in place who are loyal to an exPresident while they get paid by the current President.

    Motive
    As to both Flynn and Russia… both Obama and Hillary want him crushed. The former because he is not just angry, he is ‘Legacy Angry’:
    Politico
    “In Flynn’s speech, Obama has been a “weak and spineless” leader who “coddles” terrorists and has brought mayhem to our streets with his …”

    The latter because if she cannot find a way to blame the Russians, then she and the world will see her last excuse for losing the presidency (a 2nd time) vaporize.

    Opportunity:
    See a gleefully vindictive and loyal NY Times, WaPo, et al.

    When will we embrace the simple truth:
    the alphabet attack dog MSM is not coordinating with the “intelligence” communities, they ARE the intelligence community…
    No matter how you parse it, the fourth estate IS the deep state. PERIOD. end of story.
    And BY FAR, it is the most powerful and dangerous enemy of Freedom, the constitution, the President and the American people…

    I would strongly suggest that this distinction be understood and embraced by those seeking truth with a critical mind – how are jake tapper or jim acosta not CIA operatives? or maggie haberman not an actual agent of the FBI? or 99 percent of those jackal operatives in the WH press briefings? or the rest of the alphabet clowns…

    of course, we will likely NEVER know the dynamic of those relationships, the contracts, the flow of information – but the evidence is CLEAR, and it is vital that we identify it.

    You know…all I see and feel from the MSM and the left, including this “Breaking News” story is desperation and panic. They are like a pack of rabid dogs that just keeps getting more rabid the more they try going for the kill and are unsuccessful.

    And let’s face it, we all know Trump has this all figured out – why? Because he has ALWAYS come out of it with not only proving he is right but a 5K ahead of everyone as they look around asking, “What? Where is he now?” And he keeps winning. And we love it!

    Sundance is my hero because somehow you are figuring this out way before anyone else and can now predict not only what will most likely happen but the timing of it.

    In other words, get ready for MSM and the left to have to go to their safe place for a few days and sulk and then regroup for their next failed attempt to destroy Trump.

    The Trump presidency has been on the defensive even before the inauguration, what with the FBI/FISA dragnet to create the Obama administrations meme that the Russians “stold the election from HIllary”, and the constant leaks by the Deep State IC’s to the press to shape that meme.
    The handling of the made up “Flynn scandal” coming so early in the Trump presidency was very amateurish and the “who done what to whom” aftermath murky at best…it’s never really been explained why Pence was the one who fired Flynn. Why would Flynn lie about his contact with the Russians when it was in his bailiwick to deal with them? Even after all that Flynn was cleared by the FBI of any wrong doing.

    Since “Flynn and the Russians”, It’s been one sensational leak after another and the cumulative effect has been a growing distrust of Trumps abilities to govern. Tweeting his way out of the meme that he is incompetent and now a law breaker, isn’t going to work as the evil Washington Post and the NYT will keep chuming these stories until there is more blood in the water. Perception is nine tenths of the problem!

    Now Trump will be out of the Whitehouse for his first trip abroad to highlight his developing international/foreign affairs stance vis a vis trade and security. The MSM has already written their stories and will spin it as a failure and further whittle away at his presidential leadership and authority. What’s becoming apparent is that the evil Uniparty has their sights set on a Labor Day impeachment and, as the summer unfolds, the Deep State will continue to undermine the confidence in the Presidency and Trumps ability to lead. Indeed this is a soft coup d ‘eta in progress and by the fall, unless Trump drops everything he can on the Deep State and the entrenched bureaucracy that’s undermining him, we will be in for a sickening display of treachery by the RINO’s and the minions of the Uniparty. Make no doubt about it, this is a civil war!

    My gut feeling is that Pres. Trump’s game plan all along was to get Comey out of the position and get the Hillary investigation back into the spotlight. And I believe that his plan was to do it via a “Special Prosecutor”.

    Trump is going to nominate a new FBI Dir, ASAP. and the first act of that individual will be to announce the reopening the Hillary investigation. I’ll bet the farm on that ( a reopening of the Clinton case being announced). That right there is the spearhead of the strategy. Announcing it puts the Dems somewhat in a corner doesn’t it? They get their Special Prosecutor but that person now is working against them rather than for them.

    Technically, a SI can only be appointed to investigate a probable cause or an identified criminal activity. Comey, via his last July presser, laid that ground work out perfectly in identifying the various criminal violations of Hillary & Co. KARMA….

    Getting to this point certainly follows with the reasoning Trump initially gave as to why Comey was fired…His (Comey;s) handling of the Clinton investigation.The Dems know this and are attempting every & any diversion to avoid that from happening.

    When the Dems (along with their RINO cronies), put up delays to a confirmation of a new Director, (and they will), my gut says that their “cry” for an independent investigator will be answered by the DOJ post haste.

    All that is needed is the DOJ to announce that a review of Comey;s handling of the Hillary investigation has completed & that Comey;s evaluation of non intent was incorrect on all levels and that criminal violations were/are present and prosecutable.. Not to mention that Comey overstepped his role as Dir, when he took on the role of AG and announced HIS determination of not prosecuting Hillary. An indictment of Clinton will have a long lasting negative effect on the Dem Party for many years to come…

    And let’s not ignore the developing Rich scenario that is unfolding and will soon evaporate the whole Trump – “Russian” connection being perpetrated.

    All this clamoring for a Special Prosecutor is intensifying because the Dems want (actually need) this to happen BEFORE the Rich incident unfolds far enough to eliminate the Trump/Russia meme, and the DOJ announces a reopening of the Hillary file and actually appoints one that will focus on that. . At that point, the SI will be of little to no use for the Dems.

    We are just a few moves away from Trump putting them in a check mate and they are throwing all their pieces out to attempt to block that move….
