James Comey’s Media Leak Conduit, Daniel Richman, Goes into Hiding…

Oh, this is transparently suspicious.  But don’t anticipate the media to point out that transparently innocent people do not need to duck for cover.

The Columbia University professor, Daniel Richman, that fired FBI Director James Comey utilized as the go-between to provide leaks to the media, has gone into hiding.

According to the New York Post Mr. Richman headed out of town mid-day on Thursday just as FBI Director James Comey told congress than his friend was utilized to feed leaks to the New York Times.

New York –  A Columbia University professor from Brooklyn went into hiding Thursday after pal James Comey revealed during his Senate testimony that the man leaked memos detailing the former FBI chief’s conversations with President Trump to the press.

Daniel Richman confirmed by e-mail to several reporters that he was the “good friend” and law-school prof who Comey slipped the documents — then hightailed it out of his tony Brooklyn Heights home and refused to answer any more questions. (more)

It is absolutely certain that James Comey and Daniel Richman will quickly need to coordinate their stories because the information that Comey gave to congress just doesn’t match with the timeline of events he described.  This is a classic set-up.

How many stories did Daniel Richman leak?

How many times did James Comey use Daniel Richman to leak?

How was Richman the source for the May 11th New York Times “loyalty” story, if Richman didn’t have the Comey memos until May 16th?

So many questions….

Now he hides.

      Trump Derangement Syndrome is real and always reveals more about the character of the person with it, rather than Trump. People, for whatever strange reason, genuinely feel justified in whatever actions of “resistance” they take. It appears that Trump has given them an excuse to do what their heart desires, so there’s no need for money.

      The Swamp Creatures won’t just leave incriminating evidence laying around. They’ve been shredding documents and deleting digital files ever since 08 November.

      We may be able to connect dots well enough to know bad things were happening, without being able to secure evidence that proves anything.

        My concern is that Comey set up President Trump and I realized it when the journalist ask P Trump “if he would testify under oath?” I wanted to shout No but then P Trump said
        “Yes.”
        I sense that Comey will scarifies himself his friend Lynch just to get P Trump out. He must have riches waiting for him after sentence.I think he will get a slap on the wrist his friend will go to moil for a long time. Comey is a very evil person. All around this is very bad.
        Session was set up by the ethics department on Russian recusal because they knew he was honest. Rosenstein is a snake set up the President to firer Comey. This reads like a spy novel. I love spy novels and movies.

    Who paid for the note-taking laptop ?

    Who owns the information ?

    James Comey freely admitted he put off a family engagement with his wife to attend a meeting with POTUS. Fairly obvious the WH meeting was not a personal meeting but official business.

    Any tapes or recordings are obviously a matter for the record, eventually available to the public.

    James Comey and/or FBI refusal to provide access to the notes or memorandum to Americans will fail big time.

      From http://www.thesleuthjournal.com/comey-interfering-us-presidential-election/:
      “In a prominently featured NYT op-ed, Law Professor Richard Painter said “(w)e cannot allow FBI or Justice Department officials to unnecessarily publicize pending investigations concerning candidates of either party while an election is underway. That is an abuse of power.”

      Not according to former federal prosecutor Daniel Richman, saying “Comey’s critics cannot show his letter violated the Hatch Act unless they can prove that the FBI director was intending to influence the election rather than inform Congress, which was (his) stated aim.”

      Comey may have used the “intent” defense for Hillary’s email problem so he could pull it out of his sleeve for himself. Perhaps his friend Richman helped him figure it out? (Richman teaches federal criminal law at Columbia – well, he used to anyway.)

    Daniel Richman is hiding the illegally possessed tape recordings and other records given him by Comey…of the various versions of the memo drafts the 2 were working on before having their “final versions”.

    Daniel Richman and Comey crafted those memos after Comey’s firing…the memos started off as detailed notes taken from tape recordings that Comey provided Richman.

    Richman had been leaking info from tape recordings prior to that, that he drafted into a memo format and shared with the media.

    Now Comey knows that the leaking is out…and Comey has to play his position that his meticulous memory is based on these very detailed notes…these perfectly crafted notes…to support his memory.

    Whereas he’s been listening to tape/recordings that he is illegally in pisession of.

    Face it…what buffoon intodays society woukdnt use a smartphone, recorders to tape…when they are everywhere!

    Really…we are to believe that queasy coward sat in a limo frantically writing a memo…when he had a smartphone you record the conversation to use as blackmail.

Comey used it to get a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign and unmask innocent Americans.

        4chan has been patiently waiting for Comey and company to release it as evidence so they may set the hook. The creater has all documentation to prove the entire dossier is false.

        I speculate Comey and company now know the info is a hoax. I also speculate the President Trump also knows. I also speculate Flynn, and possibly Manafort, through contact with Russian officials, was told the Trump campaign was being spied on.

          The “fake news” dossier was originally ordered up by the Clinton campaign. Former Brit spy Christopher Steele, working for the organization with which Clinton contracted, was the one who put it together. Even he eventually admitted that it was sketchy as to evidence value aka truth.

          The former British spy who authored a controversial dossier on behalf of Donald Trump’s political opponents alleging ties between Trump and Russia reached an agreement with the FBI a few weeks before the election for the bureau to pay him to continue his work, according to several people familiar with the arrangement.

          The agreement to compensate former MI6 agent Christopher Steele came as U.S. intelligence agencies reached a consensus that the Russians had interfered in the presidential election by orchestrating hacks of Democratic Party email accounts.

          While Trump has derided the dossier as “fake news” compiled by his political opponents, the FBI’s arrangement with Steele shows that the bureau considered him credible and found his information, while unproved, to be worthy of further investigation.

      Comey transformed the FBI as an arm of the Democratic Party. He is at the centre of a seditious campaign to overthrow a duly elected president. Richman is an accomplice in this enterprise, as well as the NYT.

    Can a warrant be issued for Richman’s arrest? He is guilty of leaking government documents, and yes, documentation of conversations with the president by Comey are part of official records.

    BTW, my hubby learned this because he is a note taker; has been all his working life, always writing notes to himself about everything. In his job, (government related) reminders are helpful. Well, they had a difficult employee who they gave to him, because no one else would work with her – and his diplomatic demeanor makes him more capable than others to cope with nonsense. Anyway, he always made notes of their interactions – until ‘his’ boss said not to do that, because then that’s official data. He stopped.

    BTW, this is a typical situation of not being able to fire an under-performing employee in civil service. That lady used EEOC complaints all the time as her backup. Finally she did retire.

    This is the same reason why the VA couldn’t get rid of bad employees. It’s a widespread cancer.

    I wish somebody could post Comey’s testimony vis a vis why he leaked the “notes”. That incoherent, illogical, and fabricated answer alone just puts the lie to his entire testimony. Something about “I woke in the middle of the night. I remembered Trump mentioning possible tapes. I then knew I had to get my notes out there, because they would corroborate the tapes….and I wanted a special counsel.”
    Whaaaaaaat? The notes would corroborate a tape? It’s the other way around, Comey, A tape needs no “corroboration” Would love to see that part in print, made zero sense, seemed made up completely.

    Hopefully the rule of law and justice will result in Comey and his Columbia pal being charged, convicted, and imprisoned for their collusion to commit a felony (i.e., leaking classified information to the media). Now that Comey has exposed the entire “Russian hacking” (which became “Russian collusion” and then “obstruction of justice”) meme as bogus (hatched by the Obama administration and the deep state to as plausible denial for its illegal surveillance and unmasking of Trump campaign members and other Americans), Congress should terminate Special Counselor Mueller. As its original decision to appoint a special counsel was influenced by Comey’s criminality, by his own admission. Also concerning is that Mueller is a personal friend of Comey’s and, like Comey, a former director of the FBI. Mueller can hardly be said to be “indepedent” and “beyond the appearance of impropriety”, given his longstanding associations with Comey. Mueller should recuse himself and the whole special counsel gig should be stopped dead, as it’s going to be nothing other than a massive waste of taxpayer dollars for a fishing expedition.

      I think all involved think it will go down like Lois Lerner (plead the 5th and walk into the sunset with your fat pension) or the IT guys with the Clinton server case (take immunity and (get paid?) to shut up).

      That’s why I think Trump’s private attorney is now front and center. The big picture has now become something along the lines of; “Yeah maybe you guys will skate on criminal charges, but if you did any damage to the Trump ‘Brand’ by your activity there may be a few civil cases coming down the pike.”

      Something Comey said Thursday got kasowitz’s attention. I read that he wasn’t planning anything until he heard Comey’s hearing.

      Nothing says “How ya’ like them apples” like the dread of Trump Inc. taking your pension and estate down a few tax brackets via civil suits.

      Another little something to think about for these creeps.

    Comey was so worried about protecting himself he made immediate notes in the car , verbatim. Then he didn’t keep a copy for himself? That is just NOT believable.

      I thought during the hearing a senator asked Comey if he had a copy and he said yes and they asked if he would give Congress a copy and he said yes. Why would he NOT give a copy? He already has told his story and he’s obviously sticking to it, with notes to self and anything else he might have.

    My guess is that Comey fabricated the memo AFTER he was fired by Trump. In his May 3 testimony before Congress, Comey specifically denied any obstruction of justice and even said that “something like that (were it to occur) would stand out in his mind.” Then AFTER he was fired, and BEFORE Trump’s tweet about having “tapes”, the NYT ran the May 11 story based on Comey’s alleged “contemporaneous” memo regarding Trump asking for “loyalty”, etc. It appears that Comey is nothing other than a disgruntled employee who was fired by Trump and sought to get even, by committing a felony (along with his Columbia pal), and by committing at least two counts of perjury.

    The truth is:
    We do not know whether Richman has “gone into hiding” or whether he was “taken into hiding.”

    And if the latter is true, we do not know who took him “into hiding.”

    We are just so accustomed to “Top Secret” = “scoop of the hour”

    that if Richman has been taken into legit “Top Secret” protective custody (until trial, I should hope) we would not believe that is even possible.

    Side note. Comey has a $10 million dollar book deal in the making. Hope the DOJ invokes “Son of Sam” laws against this.

    The Comey memo was written on his lap top (FBI owned?)?

    If so, forensics should be able to tell when the memo was written, how it was edited, and to who it was transmitted (if at all).

    Heck, maybe National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers would like the honor of delivering the warrants and performing the apprehensions himself. I’d give him that pleasure in a second!

    Come on, we all know (all of us here riding with Sundance anyway) – know that criminals do NOT sit idle, waiting for their warrants of arrest – they RUN when it gets hot. What Mob-Boss in the history of Mob-Bosses has ever sat waiting for their personal handcuffs …none.
