James Comey Timeline on “Not Informing Jeff Sessions” Doesn’t Add Up…

Another interesting contradiction from the pre-released James Comey congressional opening testimony statement surrounds a part of his explanation for not informing Attorney General Jeff Sessions, about the content of a February 14th oval office discussion with President Trump about Mike Flynn, against the backdrop of the timing.

Consider the Timeline:

  • February 8th – AG Jeff Sessions confirmed
  • February 14th – Comey meets with President Trump (oval office above)
  • March 1st – AG Sessions and Ambassador Kislyak controversy begins. (link)
  • March 2nd – Sessions recuses himself from the Russian Investigation. (link)

See the problem?   At the time outlined by FBI Director James Comey, February 14th, there was nothing to indicate Attorney General Jeff Sessions would recuse himself.

Why, on February 14th, would the FBI leadership team and James Comey be saying:

“we concluded it made little sense to report it to AG sessions, who we expected would likely recuse himself from involvement in the Russia-related investigations”

…when it wasn’t until more than two weeks later that the entire reason, the origin for the recusal consideration itself, became known – March 1st.

Obviously this current statement was written by James Comey post-facto with a paramount need to justify the action taken by himself the team that was conducting the counterintelligence investigation.

However, that said, unless the FBI leadership team also carried some psychic skill at looking into the future there’s no way they could have known on February 14th that Jeff Sessions would recuse himself on March 2nd.

Unless…

Unless, the counterintelligence surveillance was targeting Russian Ambassador Kislyak (not unexpected given the nature of their wide-net surveillance construct), and the unmasking they were currently utilizing gave them some insight or information on the September ’16 meeting that ultimately led to AG Sessions decision to recuse himself.

That possibility, albeit a stretch trying to reconcile the irreconcilable, leads to a need for a review of the original WaPo article that kicked off the entire Sessions/ Kislyak controversy:

Then-Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) spoke twice last year with Russia’s ambassador to the United States, Justice Department officials said, encounters he did not disclose when asked about possible contacts between members of President Trump’s campaign and representatives of Moscow during Sessions’s confirmation hearing to become attorney general.

One of the meetings was a private conversation between Sessions and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak that took place in September in the senator’s office, at the height of what U.S. intelligence officials say was a Russian cyber campaign to upend the U.S. presidential race.

The previously undisclosed discussions could fuel new congressional calls for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Russia’s alleged role in the 2016 presidential election. As attorney general, Sessions oversees the Justice Department and the FBI, which have been leading investigations into Russian meddling and any links to Trump’s associates. He has so far resisted calls to recuse himself. (link)

Unless the vaguely outlined “FBI leadership team“, as described by Comey, had some knowledge of the Kislyak controversy in advance of the actual controversy surfacing there’s no reasonable way they could have known on February 14th that Jeff Sessions would be in a position to recuse himself on March 2nd.

And if they did have foreknowledge on February 14th of the need for recusal, then the strongest likelihood exists that existing or recently dispatched political agents within the counterintelligence investigation [DOJ (Yates) or FBI (McCabe/Comey)] were the source for the WaPo leak based on their exclusive surveillance knowledge.

Sketchy, all the way around.

Verrry, sketchy…

The most likely scenario, the Occam’s Razor per se’, is that James Comey never told Jeff Sessions on February 14th about his concerns that stemmed from the meeting because:

A.) He didn’t have any concerns because there was nothing to be concerned about.

or

B.) Because Comey believed Sessions would most likely tell the President.

Those more simple explanations highlight how political James Comey was.  Given how this statement was written well after the fact, option “A” is more likely than “B”.

Bottom line, there’s no way Comey could have known on February 14th that Sessions would recuse himself unless Comey’s team were constructing the narrative that would lead to the recusal.

Which without a Doubt proves Sundance’s Theory of the vast Uniparty! I have to basically say we live in a 3rd World Banana Republic, unfortunately the only answer might be to take the Republic back under the Treat of Force, with Trump’s full knowledge.

      Patience, patience.

      Trump was only inaugurated on Jan 20. Remember that.

      He’s a strategic genius of the highest order (as is Bannon). Remember, they have to soften up public opinion to make sure that when the hammer falls, the population will be with them.

      That means a 24/7 demonstration that Trump is on the side of America & Americans – plus that the media & Democrats (as well as RINOs) Congress are despicable, which we have seen since the election. Comey’s wacky testimony, the showpony investigation & MSM are all falling right into this plan.

      Trump is a big fan of Sun Tzu and he knows what he is doing, too. Sun Tzu says that in order to defeat an enemy, you have to

      (1) make the enemy believe that they have the advantage, by giving them rewards – ‘For them to perceive the advantage of defeating the enemy, they must also have their rewards’ : eg ‘Trump as idiot’ caricature (created by Trump himself); Flynn; Special Prosecutor; misinformation campaign about chaos in Trump’s core team etc

      (2) You have to be patient & lure them in – ‘He who is prudent and lies in wait for an enemy who is not, will be victorious’ : eg combine Trump-Russia into Russia investigation, focus population’s attention on Congressional investigation etc, encourage enemies to go on record, make foolish statements, contradict each other

      (3) You have to be ambiguous & deceptive – and then hit them when they least expect it: ‘Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt’ : upcoming ObamaGate arrests, Clinton arrest – etc

      My view is that Trump is setting the stage to calibrate everything with the 2018 by-election. His intention is to wipe the Dems out & make them unelectable by exposing Obama & Clinton’s crimes. That also gives him leverage to primary his GOP opponents & replace them with Trump loyalists. He emerges stronger after the mid-terms with a reformed ‘Trump GOP’.

      It’s happening, be in no doubt. But patience, patience.

  5. One more reason he would have kept Sessions out of the loop was because he was with Trump and the forces in the FBI leadership were not.

    If you went to leadership, how do you not go to the head of leadership?
    You do that because you have your own agenda and are working covertly within the organization.

    This makes the firing of Comey land on even more solid ground than before.
    He was politicizing the FBI. Him and that small group that discused what was going on.

        I have long said that D.C. has grown fat and happy and they sit around and do nothing. At this point in time, they only need to meet for a maximum of four times a year and that meeting could take two or three weeks. The rest of the time, they should all wear ankle monitors and only be found in the districts where they are elected listening to the people they work for.

    Possible that Comey thought that a recusal would result just because Sessions was on Trump team very early on and the investigation was on Trump team members. Having developed a relationship with Trump team, a recusal cannot be ruled out on that relationship alone.

    Is that enough for a recusal in and of itself? It would be like investigating your own company and claiming it was independent. So IMO recusal should happen regardless of whether Sessions met with the ambassador or not.

        The whole idea of recusal is to show that nothing improper is going on and prevent people from alleging scandal.

Others here seem think that it is some sort of caving or admission of guilt or something. It was the right thing to do and Sessions did the right thing at first opportunity.

          The bottom line is this Russian BS was not going away. If people are finally waking up to this, then surely the president knew this from the get go. The deep state has a very powerful weapon in the media. It doesn’t matter if an overwhelming majority don’t believe the news they put out. The media still has the means and the vehicles to keep this story going.

          That being said, to quote James Clapper, Sessions recusing himself was the “least, worst” option. In fact you could argue that it gave Comey a false sense of security that he had the president over a barrel. I would also look back to the neophyte congresswoman who accidentally trapped him in the earlier hearings regarding notification if the intelligence committee. When he wasn’t pressed fully, he must have thought he was on the home stretch.

          It looks like this recusal may be yielding more than was ever imagined.

        • Sessions’s recusal makes me think of the old story about Caesar’s wife. There were rumors going around that Julius Caesar’s wife was being unfaithful. She told him it was not true and managed even to prove her innocence. Yet he divorced her, because “there shouldn’t even be suspicions about Caesar’s wife”.

          Jeff Sessions is an honorable man who through his long involvement with the Trump campaign could have been perceived to be overseeing an investigation related to him, albeit not directed at him. Judges etc. are supposed to recuse themselves if their impartiality can be questioned. They should be like Caesar’s wife should be, beyond reproach. Whether there is actual bias or not, is irrelevant in the spirit of the law. The appearance of bias alone is enough to justify recusal. That’s the standard Sessions applies to himself. His recusal is the divorce move, showing he’s so above board and incorruptible that he (unlike the previous administrations) carefully avoids even the suspicion of impropriety in his role as AG. The standards had been lowered by the previous administrations so that even obvious crimes like Hildabeast’s emails were looked through the fingers. Sessions leads by example and applies the highest ethical standards to himself in order to show the level of conduct he expects from his DOJ and organizations below him from now on. I’m 100% agreeing with Sessions’s decision too.

      Comey is a lying POS, he knows and using vague language on purpose that Trump only was referring to Flynn non CRIMNAL actions with respect to Flynn’s conversations with the Russian ambassador in December. AND COMEY KNEW FYNN HAD DONE NOTHING WRONG BECAUSE THE FBI HAD ALREADY READ THE TRANSCRIPTS. So instead telling the President he plays dick move.

      And the proof it was only about Flynn’s conversations in December because his name never comes up again in any other conversations.

      I read so where forget where, a s tory reported that after a terrorist attack something that Comey was advocating for one postion and Obama and crew were not and Obama turned to Comey ” who’s side are you on” there no way that Comey in 3 years only spoke to Obama twice.

      A wonderful thing about when lawyers lie, is that it’s like a piece of saran wrap that’s too small to properly wrap up a turkey. You can stretch it this way, and now this part is covered up, but now you left that part exposed. Every time comey stretches to cover an identified vunerability, he exposes another. And thankfully, there are no laypersons in the room to inform them just how small this bit of wrap (muh russia) is getting, considering how much turkey is being exposed.

    Yeah, you know, this kinda bugged me to when I read it. I didn’t have the dates in my head, but it seemed odd that Comey would have known beforehand that Sessions was going to recuse himself.

    I also want to point out something I recently came across that pretty much blows this whole thing out of the water with Comey and Trump, and that is Alan Dershowitz basically tearing it apart on Anderson Cooper:

    I’ll admit, I’d not really thought about his points, specifically that the President can flat out pardon Flynn, et al and put an end to that. Or order an end to the investigation into Russia completely, since FBI autonomy is merely a tradition, not a constitutional construct. And this is entirely within his constitutional power to do so. The whole silly argument that it is illegal for him to just suggest ending an investigation completely falls apart in the face of this.

    While he could still theoretically be impeached for batting an eyelash, as Dershowitz also points out, impeachment is purely a political thing. Republicans aren’t going to do it unless the public backs them on it. And judging by the President’s poll numbers, that isn’t going to happen. Especially when he hasn’t done anything wrong. Impeachment is a slippery slope politically.

    If you aren’t familiar with Alan Dershowitz, he’s not exactly a fan of Trump (he backed Hillary), and is a big time liberal. But he’s also a legal eagle that understands the law and the Constitution. As far as I can tell, he is absolutely correct on this. The narrative that Trump “obstructed justice” is completely blown away.

      Alan Dershowitz was Jeff Epstein’s lawyer, if I’m not mistaken.

          Dershowitz is ‘gifted’ in what he does. I do hope what he said in the video above is true. Or maybe President Trump knows that but is using it as a surprise Trump card later. I am suspicious of any Clinton’s supporter giving out info, getting us to think it would help our President.

          Keln, glad to read you again–I wanted to let you know how much I really enjoy looking at your famous painting. It’s one of our favorites. We came aboard here July 2015 and got caught up in that great patriotic wave, too!.

        Yes. And his name appeared on the Lolita express airplane logs several times. And he was accused by one of the underage girls of sexual misconduct which he denied. Although a legal scholar, he’s never ever gone out of his way to defend ANY conservative politician before. So I do have to wonder why now? And so vehemently that it reminded me of his equally vehement denial at the time the underage girl made her accusations against him. Just curious

      This came up during the Blago Impeachment. Impeachment is political. The FBI did not need to reveal any evidence as Blagojevich could be impeached without it. I am no fan of Blago, but he was railroaded. And Judge Zagel, the judge in his corruption case, now sits on the FISA court.

    Could the last few days, “Session, I offered to resign, Trump fuming mad” be a bit more playing out the line to grab some more? And if not exactly that, can the gentleman Sessions now see that he, a sitting Senator, was unmasked in some way? Might he now get some fire in his belly of what is going on around here?

      Sorry to thread jack-
      But is anybody going to be near where the testimony is being given tomorrow?
      Feel like making a detour to Kinko’s and making a large, economy sized version
      of what Sundance highlighted above for the cameras? NBC, CBS, CNN et al will
      look elsewhere, but Oan , Infowars, and others might find it REAL camera ready.

    I’m voting BOTH A and B. There is nothing (A). But – based on the Dick Morris contention that this is ALL ABOUT trying to gin up “process crimes” – Comey was desperate to trip up Trump AND Trump’s underlings on behalf of Hillary, and needed Trump as “in-the-dark” as possible (B), so that various entrapments, and possibly even planted fake evidence (which I am still waiting for) would work.

    Comey is crooked. He is the fake “good boy” who has worked hard and repeatedly to defend Hillary, and now to harm Trump.

    Trump was absolutely right to get this rascal out.

  27. Sundance, you have gone well above and beyond the call of duty with this and other analyses of Comey’s statement.

    May God bless you for the work you do. May God bless our President.

    Of course, Comey can say they thought that Sessions “would likely recuse himself” because he (Comey) and his cronies were engineering a situation where Sessions (a straight-shooter) would likely seek to recuse himself. Comey could anticipate it because he (and others) planned it.

    It’s clear that Comey was still doing the Clinton’s bidding.

    He never believed in a million years that President Trump would sack him.

    Unfortunately, the low-lives who call themselves “Republicans” have neither the desire nor the intellectual capacity to interrogate Comey in a meaningful manner. Some day, we may find out how many of them are on the Clinton Foundation payroll.

        Yes. An “impeachment trap” based on MUH RUSSIA “Pee-Pee tapes.” This scheme is so ludicrous, it’s fit for “The Jerry Springer Show.” Or “Mad” Magazine.

        I think it was that smelly old reptile, John Songbird McCain who brought it to the “attention” of the so-called “intelligent agencies.”

    After looking close at this essay and timeline I think it is clear justification for the president to pardon AG Sessions and free him from his recusals. That would put our main turret back in action for the coming fight and repair a lot of battle damage. Pardon Sessions today! We need him on this running battle action.

    Who was James Comey working for during the 2 week period “we” as he said decided that his boss AG Sessions would recuse himself?

    Who was Comey accountable to?

    Who or what Comey the authority to decide he does not have to inform his superior, AG Sessions?

    Remember he is legally responsible by Federal law to report within 48 hours any Obstruction to the AG. There is no exception for “unless you decide they will recuse themselves”

    So this begs the question- who was Comey working for when he decided he no longer needed to inform his superior?

    “The audacity of Comey here is jaw-dropping. He admits in his statements both on January 6th, and again on January 27th, the entire premise of the Russian Dossier is bogus, hence: “prove a negative”, and yet unbeknownst to President Trump this is the same evidence the FBI and Comey’s own investigative unit utilized to expand the Russian Election hacking/interference narrative into the Trump campaign, and gain FISA warrants therein. Without the Dossier the Trump-Russia conspiracy narrative doesn’t exist.”

    So the whole thing is based on the MUH RUSSIA “Pee-Pee tapes.” I thought so. The incompetence and corruption is beyond belief. I wonder when the fake news media will admit the whole thing is a fraud? Never. When this Russian balloon pops once and for all, and I think it will, they’ll pretend it didn’t happen and try to dump it into the memory hole.

    The whole Russia ‘hacked’/’rigged’ the election crap was out there and the campaign was already being accused of winning because of Russia. That’s the reason they knew he would recuse himself…
