Dear Senator – Someone, Anyone, Please Follow-Up With Comey Today On This Line of Inquiry…

On March 20th, 2017 a young freshman representative from New York named Elise M. Stefanik used a probative timeline to question FBI Director James Comey.  Using simple common sense Ms. Stefanik single-handily exposed a significant level of intentional intelligence community deception yet no-one seemed to notice.

In the segment of the questioning (video below) Rep. Stefanik begins by asking director Comey what are the typical protocols, broad standards and procedures for notifying the Director of National Intelligence, the White House and senior congressional leadership (aka the intelligence Gang of Eight), when the FBI has opened a counter-intelligence investigation.

The response from Comey is a generalized reply (with uncomfortable body language) that notification of counter-intel investigations are discussed with the White House, and other pertinent oversight officials, on a calendar basis, ie. “quarterly”.

With the statement that such counterintelligence notifications happen “generally quarterly”, and against the backdrop that Comey stated in July of 2016 a counter-intel investigation began, Stefanik asks:

…”when did you notify the White House, the DNI and congressional leadership”?

BOOM! Watch an extremely uncomfortable Director James Comey outright LIE… by claiming there was no active DNI to notify -which is entirely false- James Clapper was Obama’s DNI.

.

Watch it again.

Watch that first 3:00 minutes again. Ending with:

…”Because of the sensitivity of the matter” ~ James Comey

FBI Director Comey intentionally obfuscates knowledge of the question from Rep Stefanik; using parseltongue verbiage to get himself away from the sunlit timeline.

The counter-intel investigation, by his own admission, began in July 2016. Congress was not notified until March 2017. That’s an eight month period – Obviously obfuscating the quarterly claim moments earlier.

The first and second questions from Stefanik were clear. Comey’s understanding of the questions was clear. However, Comey directly evaded truthful response to the second question. When you watch the video, you can see Comey quickly connecting the dots on where this inquiry was going.

There is only one reasonable explanation for FBI Director James Comey to be launching a counter-intel investigation in July 2016, notifying the White House and James Clapper (ODNI), and then keeping it under wraps from congress: James Comey was a participant in the intelligence gathering for political purposes – wittingly, or unwittingly.

It became clear during that testimony that Director Comey was using his office as a facilitating conduit for political purposes; presumably in favor of the 2016 White House.

Unfortunately, a slightly nervous Stefanik, never forced Comey to go back to the non-answered question and respond by saying:

No, Mr. Comey, there WAS a DNI in place in 2016, please answer the question of when did you notify him (James Clapper) and the White House?

….. then it would get a little ugly:

Why did you notify Clapper and the White House but delay congressional notification?

With all the banter about these hearings, and against this slight moment of clarity of purpose, it bears repeating:

There is only ONE KNOWN Factual and CRIMINAL activity currently identified: the unmasking and leaking of Mike Flynn’s name to the media.

FBI Director Comey stated his organization is “investigating”, fair enough.  Director Comey stated the investigation was a counterintelligence operation; again, fair enough.  However, not a single congress person followed-up to his admission and questioned why only he decided to act without oversight, and only this aspect of the investigation was kept secret from congress and the gang-of-eight.

Why?

Additionally, during this same March 20th testimony Director Comey stated there was an ongoing leak investigation.  However, almost two months later, on May 8th 2017, both James Clapper and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates stated they were unaware of any leak investigation and neither of them had been contacted or questioned as part of the supposed leak investigation.

How can there be a leak investigation if the key stake-holders who possessed the intelligence that was leaked have never been questioned?

How?

    Here is a theory:

    Let’s forget all the FBI unmasking stuff for a second. We all know that happened. Perhaps Comey was simply spying / wiretapping Trump and his Team on behalf of the Obama Administration solely for political purposes. Perhaps there never was an actual “investigation”. Perhaps, once they got their hand caught in the cookie jar, they had to go back and reconstruct an investigation and justify (rather weakly) the whole thing based on few Russians talking about Flynn.

    Mr. Comey, it has been widely reported you covered your computer camera and microphone with tape for security. Is that accurate? If so, what security did you employ to protect these ‘notes to file’? Why were you not concerned about the security of these ‘notes to file’ on the same computer you protected with Scotch™ Tape?

    My theory=Comey is GUILTY of collusion w/ Clinton/BO (knowingly/unknowingly). He’s a smart man and may have figured this out when he was in too deep & before he released his Clinton determination. Was he threatened? Only God knows that answer. Story was then orchestrated about Trump/Russia tapering w/ election to throw attention away from Clinton investigation. Comey or someone in FBI may have “implied” Russia tampering. Info was “leaked” to the media and media ran with it. Because Comey has been given a free pass (because special investigator Mueller is very close to him?), Comey s/b grateful he is not behind bars.

      I have long held suspicion that Comey was in on a fix for Clinton. When he made his big public pronouncement that the FBI had determined there was nothing prosecutable WRT HRC’s actions surrounding her e-mail server (while simultaneously providing a litany of issues that would merit prosecution), he made what appears to be a political determination.

      Re-opening the investigation when the laptop of Anthony Can’t Keep His Wiener In His Pocket was brought to light AND when HRC had a big lead in the polls may well have been done to preserve the APPEARANCE that Comey was not acting as an agent for HRC. The calculus was likely that HRC would become president (thank God that did not happen), at which time HRC and Comey could CLAIM “I/She was cleared by the FBI prior to the election. No further investigation is required, and there is no appearance of the President (HRC) attempting to influence the FBI to drop it’s investigation.” See how neatly that would have worked! But the calculus backfired.

      Rutroh! Major damage control efforts needed. It appears that Comey has had a significant hand in those damage control efforts. He coordinated leaks (of what constitutes only he said/she said material) to the press. (What other leaks did Comey know of/participate in?) And he did so in an effort to force the administration to name an independent counsel, knowing full well that this would suggest to the American public that there was something shady about the actions of PDJT and keep that notion alive into perpetuity. Just naming an independent counsel is sufficient to give the impression that there MUST be a fire because there is smoke.

      WHAT A WEASEL!!!

    That would be fun if such follow-up questioning was launched at Comey today, but we all know it won’t. A good many of these senators on this intelligence committee are also on the so called gang of eight, which per previous articles by SD is always real time informed of every and any thing done regarding any of the intel activities of the agencies. Therefore, the questioners are complicit in the cover-up, so I doubt you’ll see any mention of any of that.

    This whole Comey thing is skirting around the main issue…which is WHO, HOW, and WHY Michael Flynn was unmasked? This is the path they need to head down as this will expose much of the swamp. If these Senators focus on (which they will) did PDJT ask for loyalty, pressure, and about Comey’s memo’s etc. that will all be just a distraction of the actual felony committed of tracking and unmasking of a private American Citizen.

      Good, OP. If Comey was afraid of Trump, how did Hillary make him feel? He documented his conversations with Trump, yet even Sandy Berger could not steal notes of Comey’s conversations with Clinton, Inc. because none were taken. Why?

    On top of the points that Sundance lays out about Rep Stefanik’s line of questioning and other probings from the March 20th hearing, it is significant to note Comey’s own comments regarding the reason IC leadership approached Trump on January 6th. In his prepared statement, Comey states as the primary reason for requesting that meeting with Trump that “we knew the media was about to publicly report the material.”

    How did Comey (and other IC leadership) knew that the press was going to publish the dossier? That dossier was bought by the FBI. If the FBI and IC leadership knew ahead of time that the dossier was going to be published, did they know that because Christopher Steele informed them that he was taking the dossier directly to the press? If so, did that violate any provisions of the agreement between the FBI and Christopher Steele about who had control of the dossier when the dossier was prepared specifically at the request of the FBI? Or was the dossier leaked by someone in the IC community? Within the IC leadership team? If the IC leadership knew there was a leak from within the IC community, what were the IC leadership doing to find those responsible for the leak and hold that person or persons responsible before the law? Were you, Mr. Comey, directly aware of how the media had gotten hold of the dossier?

    Of course, another line of questioning for Mr. Comey is about his reluctance to make any public statement that Trump was not under any counter-intelligence investigation. Comey says that he was unwilling to make such a statement because it could present a duty to correct. But Comey did not take such an approach with the Clinton e-mail investigation. Comey made dubious public statements exceeding his authority that there was nothing that prosecutable about Hillary’s actions. And then he reopened the investigation. Why did he exceed his authority to begin with and why did he make a statement that he subsequently had to correct? At what point in an investigation does he deem that there is sufficient information that a public statement absolving a person of suspicion is warranted? How did he arrive at that conclusion WRT presidential candidate Clinton but withhold such statement WRT the sitting President, knowing full well that President Trump himself was NOT under investigation and that all of the incorrect statements in the press make it all but impossible for President Trump to fully execute his office as President?

    I smell a skunk here.

    I would like to think USAG Sessions is playing duck ( quiet on the surface but paddling like hell below ) yet there are some things on-going he should be ( IMO) actively pushing . Is this his complacency, his possible allegiance to the “old school”, or is it a lack of MSM reportage ? We have at least one FBI Agent being tried for concealing evidence. There’s multiple pending cases re BATF malfeasance and bureaucratic overreach . I’m increasingly convinced we’re seeing ever more blatant actions on the part of the swamp monsters to thwart the expressed will of the voters.
