Never Underestimate The Severity of James Comey’s Manipulative Intent…

There are times when it becomes important, perhaps very important, to emphasize inherent angles and intentions that breed within the scheme.

Those who view the actions, behaviors, and more importantly the words, from a perspective of their own outlook and moral center are making a critical mistake.  Former FBI Director James Comey does not frame his sentiments from the same operational perspective of those guided by an honorable moral compass.

Good Example Here.

Former FBI Director James Comey is steeped in the dark arts of self-serving deception. It is a character trait necessary for life at the top of the food chain in the deep swamp.  As such, the fully developed Comey persona is necessarily devoid of any cognitive genetic composition which would frame compassion for anything, or anyone. Comey looks out for his own best interests.  FIRST. FOREMOST. and ONLY.

James Comey constructed that hearing in the way James Comey wanted to construct that hearing.  Comey controlled when the hearing took place; Comey controlled the hearing being in public; Comey controlled the duration of the hearing, and Comey controlled the length of time each Senator had for the questioning within the hearing.

James Comey controlled everything about that hearing and said exactly what he wanted to say within that hearing.  Comey released his opening statement before the hearing, on the day prior to the hearing, because that was James Comey’s intention for the hearing.

Everything Comey said within the hearing was for a specific purpose, and with a specific audience for his message in mind.  There were no discoveries from the hearing that Comey did not intend as discoveries from the hearing.  Comey was messaging to former AG Loretta Lynch, former President Obama and former candidate Hillary Clinton.  There was nothing accidentally released within the hearing; everything was pre-planned, pre-staged, coordinated with like-minded travelers and well thought out.

Everything is always thought out. Every word is carefully considered. Every possible angle is run through a perspective of consequence so vast and extensive it would exhaust anyone unfamiliar with the necessary level of energy it takes to train your mind to a point where lying as the basis for preservation is habitual.

Skills that are second nature take less effort.  Professional lying is a trained skill, only possible amid those who have taught themselves to psychologically disconnect from any sense of guilt or remorse.  That is James Comey.

Unfortunately, that is the appropriate perspective to view these words:

“I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter – I didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons – but I asked him to, because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”

A swamp dweller skilled in the dark arts of deception and control would state those words knowing ordinary people, those with honest minds, would seek to remove the special counsel as an outcome.

Liars use reference points of honesty against their victims.

James Comey is setting up Special Counsel Mueller as fruit of a poisoned tree Comey would have you believe he planted. He didn’t; but his future interests are served in having us believe he did.

These ‘after-the-fact-words‘, spoken before congress, are framed as James Comey setting up an explanation and reference point for the appointment of his “friend”, Robert Mueller. However, these are also the Machiavellian words of Comey trying to diminish the risk inherent in Robert Muellers investigation.

Fired Comey has no way of knowing how deep the investigation may go.  Nor does James Comey know the severity of disposition amid those within the FBI ranks who saw and experienced his true, manipulative and self-serving character.

Therefore, the easiest way to remove risk is to corrode the foundation for the underlying investigative construct by deteriorating support for the investigation itself.

James Comey is no longer in control of the investigative inputs or investigative outcomes.

Those whom Comey has injured, namely Attorney General Jeff Sessions and President Trump, are in positions where they can honestly and openly monitor the larger investigative inputs and follow the outcomes; they can also monitor the ongoing activity of Comey himself.

When someone of Comey’s inherent disposition is in a place like this, they seek to influence through direct contact.  Absent of an ability to engage in direct contact the fall-back position is to influence the surrounding landscape (media an public opinion).

Never, ever, underestimate the severity or skill of a professional liar.

Never take anything they say at face value the way you would a disconnected observer.

Liars lie, it’s what they do.

Professional liars lie well, it’s what they’ve trained themselves to do.

    My instincts tell me that Comey’s testimony was meant to give Trump CAUSE to fire Mueller. Can you imagine the cry from the press, democrats, and even republicans if Trump or DOJ fire Mueller who is supposedly an independent council?

    This would be the “obstruction of justice” they have been looking for. At least they will try to make it that.

      The dishonest media has been relentlessly and implacably attacking Donald Trump. I do not recall a single positive story about Donald Trump on CNN or MSNBC. Rachel Maddow is now the highest rated evening cable show.

      If Mueller is fired, who would prosecute an “obstruction of justice” charge? Other than those who despise and hate Donald Trump, who would consider the charge anything but partisan. I do not think firing Mueller would erode Donald Trump’s base.

      Anyway there is the government shutdown coming up in September that should incite some incendiary headlines.

    (sorry if this already posted, I don’t see it)

    Interesting character study of our friend Comey, but methinks it is a bit off target and a bit over the top. In my opinion, he ain’t quite that venal. Seems to me he thinks of himself as the keeper of truth and justice and guardian of our justice system. An often misguided self-righteous megalomaniac. Self-righteous megalomaniacs are by nature self-serving. They have to protect and preserve themselves, so they can protect and preserve the rest of us.

    Look at his treatment of old Hillary. He could have just announced that he was turning his investigative findings over to the Justice Dept. He could have announced that the investigation found no intent, so she ain’t being charged. End of story.

    In both of those scenarios he would have been good with Hillary, in what was then viewed as the very likely coming event of her election. So why did he go through that litany of Hillary being stupid and grossly negligent with our national security? He let her off the legal hook, but politically he beat her behind. Then he announced at the end of the campaign the investigation was reopened. He could have just kept his mouth shut.

    I could go on for an hour or so, but if you think about his other actions from this perspective you could discern a pattern. but my guess is that most of you will prefer to stick with our host’s assessment. I will duck now.

                  Yes, and we also know that Comey’s queasiness about following orders from above is not consistent. He lied to the American people on the orders of AG, and Obama hack, Loretta Lynch. Trump did not ask him to lie to the American people. He allegedly “hoped” that Comey could see his way clear to let Flynn go. He didn’t tell Comey to do anything. And he did not even suggest that Comey let Flynn slide, unless he “could see his way clear”. That means he hoped Comey could do it, if he could do so with a clear conscience. And I don’t know why the President, the President’s lawyers and PR flacks can’t explain that convincingly. I guess it’s because Trump is denying saying it. Of course, if he hasn’t got the tapes he has been dangling, he can’t prove it. If he has no tapes, most people will assume Comey is telling the tale closer to the truth. I hope he has the tapes but I am becoming increasingly worried he was just BSing. Not good! as The Donald would tweet. I want the guy to be the best President he can be, but he needs to be more careful, in my so very humble opinion.

          Comey made his most egregious abuses when events forced him to break cover.

          The plan was for Comey to conduct a sham investigation of Hillary’s email “matter” and then pass it off to Lynch for her to give the presser and make the “no intent/no reasonable prosecutor” statement. Then Lynch was caught conferring with Bill Clinton on the tarmac and Comey had to step in. Remember he was distraught not because of the improper conduct of the AG – he was distraught because it meant Lynch could no longer “credibly” close the “matter”.

          Likewise, in September the NYPD recovered the Weiner/Abedin laptop and forced Comey to jump out in front to again perform damage control – which he did, but fortunately it was impossible to save her campaign at that point.

          But he did everything in service to the Clintons- nothing more, or less.

What stopped him from just declaring Hillary not prosecuteable, without lambasting her for stupidity and gross negligence? He didn’t have to declare the investigation open again. He had not even looked at the Weiner emails. He could have dragged his feet, or just kept his mouth shut. He claims he did those things to protect the integrity of the blah blah blah, but nobody here believes that, do they?

    • EXCERPT: “James Comey is the penultimate D.C. “crime fixer.” His many years of D.C. cronyism are profoundly smeared with a litany of outright crimes that he should be prosecuted for and receive the most severe sentence as one who is supposed to be protecting U.S. laws instead of violating them contemptuously. But when you are the top-cop in America, you get a stack of “get out of jail free” cards—some for you and many for your criminal friends.

      A review of FBI Director James Comey’s professional history and relationships shows that he is deeply entrenched in the big-money cronyism culture of Washington, D.C. His personal and professional relationships have all been undisclosed as he pretended to prosecute Hillary Clinton and yet exonerated her before an investigation was even opened. This legal dodging has been Comey’s M. O. for decades as he was placed in high level political positions to “FIX” the charges brought against White House criminals.

      Attorney General Loretta Lynch, another crooked lawyer and friend of Comey’s, gave the drug-money laundering bank, HSBC, a free pass with a Deferred Prosecution Agreement. Immediately afterwards, Comey was hired as a leading member of the bank’s “Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee.” In other words, Comey went to HSBC knowing it was a criminal enterprise protected by Loretta Lynch.

      Comey is such a blatant criminal that we wouldn’t be surprised to learn that he is on retainer for the Clinton Crime Family through his associations with corporations who are major donors and supporters of the Clintons. Comey has covered up wrongdoing with Hillary’s Email server, the DNC “hacking”, Anthony and Huma Email Scandal, Lockheed Martin, HSBC, Bridgewater, etc., etc., etc. Comey has a long history of involvement in Department of Justice actions that end up favorable to the Clintons.”

      “Investigations into the financial holdings of James B. Comey and former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller reveal astounding conflicts of interest. These relationships would have stopped anyone else from being offered the top law enforcement job in the country.

      Comey has been the FBI director since 2013 when he replaced 12-year director Robert S. Mueller who was chief counsel for London-based bank HSBC which was exposed in 2015 for sheltering $100 billion in client funds in murky offshore tax havens populated by drug dealers, money launderers, and arms traffickers.

      Comey also served as chief counsel for Bridgewater Associates, the largest hedge fund in the world. In 2012, Comey’s Bridgewater salary was $6,632,616 just before taking over the helm at the FBI. In his first year at the FBI, he received another $3.3 million in Bridgewater severance cash outs. A year later, his net worth jumped up to $34 million. Comey also disclosed direct holdings in IBM Eclipse Foundation members: Verizon, Intel, Emerson Electric, Microsoft, Qualcomm, AT&T, Apple, HP, Morgan Stanley, Lockheed Martin, JPMorgan, Wells Fargo, none of which has ever been disclosed or caused him to recuse himself in any case.

      Comey was a director of the London money launderer extraordinaire, HSBC. Even the Clinton Foundation website boasts about HSBC donations. This fact alone disqualifies Comey from involvement in any Hillary Clinton investigation.”

And at the end of the game he re-opened the “investigation”. Was that supposed to fix something for Clinton? Use your head.

I don’t think I have ever disagreed with any action he took, and I still get called a troll from time to time. Just ignore. My belief is that through thoughtful exchanges of ideas and insights we will all get closer to the truth. Not my site, but from me “welcome aboard.” Oh, and great admiration for Sundance here, and in case you didn’t notice, we are pro Trump all the time because we have no one else.

              I see a lot of personal comments/insults here. Anytime anyone is perceived by some rabid close minded character to have deviated from the orthodoxy. I am so pro-Trump it keeps me awake at nights worrying about him getting disgusted with the treatment he is getting and deciding to quit and enjoy his life. However, I am not going to ignore reason and reality to blindly follow and defend anything that Trump does or says. And I won’t demonize and assign criminal motives to his opponents without some evidence. I hate ideologically blind end-justifies-the means left loons and I am not going to imitate them.

                Don, I have enjoyed your post and all comments and pondered your challenging questions. Here’s one possiblility.
                ——————————————–

                “megalomaniacs…self-serving….protect and preserve themselves”

                When Comey pronounced “the [Hag] investigation found no intent” there was an uproar from the legal community as intent was not specified in the applicable laws.

                Could it be that Comey was setting up this precedent in case it might save his neck someday if he was facing his own hanging?

                One can do something illegal if it’s done with good intention. End justifies the means.

                Same MO in his leaking testimony. It’s ok to leak if done with good intention [he thought it might lead to the appointment of a special prosecutor]. Again, end justifies the means.

                Under Obama and his admin, how many times would Comey have made decisions not justified under the law due to the lawless stance of the admin. Again, end justifies the means.

                Maybe Comey’s decisions are not based on upholding/enforcing the laws, but obtaining the result whether the actions to do so are legal or illegal.

                If one establishes/accepts this pattern as Comey’s MO, one might conclude that the “intent” finding had nothing to do with Hag and everything to do with Comey’s future self-preservation.

                With all the illegal unmasking, surveillance, spying on Trump during the campaign, maybe there’s a chance he knew what a whole lot of us thought – that Trump was going to win, not the Hag.

                In addition, he probably did all that same spying on Hag & Hubby for many moons, so even if he trashed her, and then she did win, he had plenty of evidence for blackmail (i.e., Epstein’s orgy island; she is on the flight log 6xs IIRC). But, I digress…

                In this “intent” scenario, Comey could not do what was good for Hag and for himself. He couldn’t pass up the opportunity to set an ‘intent’ precedent as it might be exactly what needs to save his own arze.

                Once a pattern of behavior is established 9which might be more than what I’ve presented), Comey’s behavior becomes predictable.

                This scenario might be one possibility.

                Next idea: personal disorder. Pick your poison.

                Indeed. “Interesting character study of our friend Comey”.

        R-C I might be wrong. I often am. But what I got from Don’s theory is that Comey is a different kind of crazy and that he views himself as the smartest and most ethical guy in the country, which goes to show right there he is crazy as a loon. I don’t think, unless I misread, that DON believes that Comey is the keeper of truth and justice, just that he is suggesting that Comey believes that about himself.

        I personally think whatever kind of crazy Comey is that you are right he has been the Clinton’s Fixer. He has some history, doesn’t he??? I wouldn’t want to be in his size 13 shoes right now.

    A couple of days ago I posted a comment on a previous thread which was prompted by my reaction to the clips of Comey’s testimony shown on Judge Jeanine.

    To me, his facial expressions, demeanor, and studied phrases of helpless victimology and blame looked and sounded just like those of Hillary Clinton. I remarked that she must have either coached him or they shared the same acting coach.

    Reading Sundance’s astute comments have caused me to think that this might actually have been the case.

    The plotting and collusion going on to overthrow our president (and our constitutional republic) has to be intense and done on a scale that we would find difficult to imagine. But we must.

    Think of it: the lust for power and hatred for people like us (Christians, Jews, conservatives) has prompted the left to partner with Islamists (think Muslim Brotherhood for example and look at Keith Ellison and agency heads under Obama and Clinton) and use them to inflitrate and overthrow governments all over the world.

    Why, when the result is so obviously evil and has led to murder and savagery that is almost unimaginable, has our side let them call this “love” and “tolerance” end even worse…been cowering before and cooperating with those spewing these lies.

    Ever since the Clintons came on the scene lying has been elevated to an art form (spin) and copied and elevated by the leftist press. And, I am sure, there is more than one “war room” being used against us.

    What can we do?

    My local Republican party has put into place a governor who is an anti-Trump rino. They also tried to install a senator who was worse. These people are seen as “reasonable” and “centrist” (and still hated and demonized by the left).

    Through my visceral disgust, I keep remembering that President Trump is a Republican who needs Republicans elected to Congress rather than despicable Democrats. He said that they (Republicans) don’t know how to win but that he would teach them.

    I want to give him that chance, but I preferentially want to be part of an effort to send him some winners with fire in their belly like he has and the courage to stand with him in this battle of our lifetimes.

    Is there a way to physically connect with other Deplorables so that we might do some plotting and planning ourselves?

      dear LM, it will be difficult to set up something like that without being infiltrated. i remember down at the clinic one morning, coupla new guys came along and asked us about the pro-life Unity meeting. Of course there was nothing of the kind underway. they were looking to find one. (shows how little they know) I remember years ago trying to set up a joint action at several places in one state; in retrospect one city team which vanished suddenly were fbi or PP. Third – i remember at another we had a signal that we would all wear a certain color. On the big day, the pro-lifers all forgot (naturally) but the other side was brightly dressed in our color. our answer was, just do not have secrets. but if you want to plot and plan you will be out-plotted. you cannot be out-prayed. you can follow existing leaders such as Trump the Pro-Life. and again, you cannot be out-prayed.

The competition was among the corporate titans. They also bought the elections, the politicians. So wherever that Senator election is housed, safeguards are necessary, as well as enforcement. The greatest Constitution in the world is only words on paper without devotion to its principles and dedication to enforcement of its laws. The later is essential.

      Point taken, but “sociopath” (apolitical and not limited to socialism, if that was the main gist) is too nice of a term for Comey and the leading bulk of the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, the Soroses, the Clintons, the “Obamas,” the Bushes, and the like. Psychopathy denotes the psychotic mental (and I would include therefore, most importantly, spiritual) break from reality that such souls have — a break from the reality of what it is to be part of the vast “useless eater,” “useful idiot” “underclass” over whom such psychopaths portend to rule.

      Many of my physical “neighbors” over the years have been sociopathic in large part, not caring one wit about my unexamined contentment next door, as they leave their properties unkempt, park all over their yards, yap loudly at all hours, blare music, let their animals bark and run roughshod over the neighborhood, and take part in other acts that used to be socially deviant but have been normalized.

      …But I rarely, if ever, have to be concerned that they’re consciously, actively trying to destroy my life and others’, and I believe that quite a few of them still would answer some greater call and somehow aid others in a time of distress. Most of them are not on an active path to elevate themselves to actual community or otherwise broader social importance. They think that they are big within their little social circles, and that’s enough for them, as they tell their dumb daily lies to their family and friends. But many of them still go to work and to church and contribute interactions that actually are useful to others, even though, really, they care pretty much only about themselves, blind and deaf to others’ emotions.

      And then there are the Comeys and the like, who are a hyperactive beast far apart from my daily sociopaths.

      Are you kidding me with that garbage! James Comey is the one that got played by our President. This moron thought he would tell our President one thing and tell the public something else. Three times he shared that our President wasn’t under investigation. Yet on March 20th he was proud to tell the world that the FBI was investigating Muh Russia and any possible collusion. That made Americans believe our President was under investigation. In his moronic mind, how could the President fire me with an open investigation. Well we saw how that played out!

      James Comey may not even be aware that the secret service was bugging the conversations in the dining room next to the Oval Office. He may also not realize what our President meant when he stated that they, “Found GOLD behind those walls” after gutting the room and having it remodeled recently. Our President told the press on Friday that they will hear what where on those tapes and they will be completely disappointed. The disappointment is the fact Comey LIED about our President asking for his loyalty and stating that if anyone had done anything wrong pertaining to the Muh Russia investigation, he wanted to know so that they can be fired and possibly prosecuted. Including Michael Flynn.

      Our President has Comey’s privates in the blender waiting for it to be turned on! Our President has assembled a team of the best lawyers money can buy. He could care less about the cost because the sake of our country hangs in the balance. Please take your GARBAGE elsewhere!

        Nothing in that hearing was not planned out shortly after the election. Comey was already the point man on spying on Trump and he became the point man on taking out Trump. He volunteered himself to get Trump to make a series of one on one meetings that enabled Comey to make a series of allegations that can only be countered via Trump’s word. And he memo’ed the meetings to give greater credence to the false allegations.

        The entire construct is based on fraud and lies. They will stop at nothing to get rid of him.

        The only thing that has changed is that Trump forced the issue by firing Comey.

        Trump stopped Comey from fabricating more false allegations.

        Trump got rid of Comey before even the thought of firing him would be depicted as an obstruction of justice. Imagine if Comey had already leveled accusations against Trump, in private or in public. Trump would be much worse off if he had waited.

        Nope, Trump fired Comey while Comey was telling everybody that Trump was not under investigation.

        And in doing so, forced Comey to prematurely spring his long pre-planned trap. Before he had fabricated what he felt was sufficient to take out Trump.

        Trump also forced Comey to make yet more lies to Congress, and to cop to breaking laws.

        The prime witness has sabotaged his own credibility.

        On the other hand, the left has tried to make everybody assume every word out of Trump’s mouth is a lie. Has predisposed people to think Trump is evil / villainous / criminal / illegitimate. Those people already were all ready saying guilty and will not change there minds ever.

I do think that James Comey would like the special counsel under a cloud. That cloud of suspicion is what he was allowing to happen to POTUS through not eliminating the leaks combined with no public statements. IMO his testimony continues to bear testament to his standard operating methods as the polar opposite of the Sessions/Rosenstein operating approach for the FBI. He likes to talk…a lot….and he leaks.

          Well nobody lobbies the executive branch, which is prohibited by law. It is the Congress critters that are constantly fundraising, schmoozing with lobbyists, giving access to big donors and otherwise selling out the American people.

          That’s why Presidential leadership is so important. Harry Truman once said that big money and special interests are well represented in Congress. It’s up the President to represent the rest.

          During the campaign, President Trump would say “nobody knows politicians like I do.”

          That’s why it’s so surprising and disappointing that, aside from changing the tone on illegal immigration (to great effect) Trump seems to be allowing Ryan and McConnell to lead him by the nose.

            Who financed Lenin and Trotsky?
            ….In 1911 the St. Louis Dispatch published a cartoon by a Bolshevik named Robert Minor. Minor was later to be arrested in Tsarist Russia for revolutionary activities and in fact was himself bankrolled by famous Wall Street financiers. Since we may safely assume, that he knew his topic well, his cartoon is of great historical importance. It portrays Karl Marx with a book entitled Socialism under his arm, standing amid a cheering crowd on Wall Street. Gathered around and greeting him with enthusiastic handshakes are characters in silk hats identified as John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, John D. Ryan of National City Bank, Morgan partner George W. Perkins and Teddy Roosevelt, leader of the Progressive Party….

            I see nothing that makes me think that Marx actually cared for the ‘Masses’ instead I see a giant scam to bring the masses back under the control of the Bankster Elite. These are the ‘Globalists’ that President Trump and the Deplorables are up against.

        Just perusing through your comments again leads me to believe you are no fan of Trump and certainly have no faith in his abilities. It causes me to question everything about you.

          Not so — Trump has great abilities.

          He has an immense degree of political talent. Trump has celebrity, charisma, fearlessness, confidence, he projects great strength and he is a tireless worker. He is a great salesman, he is entertaining, he has great powers of persuasion and he has the ability to weave an irresistible narrative.

          Trump dispatched the best and brightest in the Republican Party without significant campaign staff, policy staff, pollsters, super PACs, fundraisers, paid media, consultants, fundraisers, bundlers or any of the other accoutrements of modern politics.

          Trump is ahead of the curve in many ways. Just as internet savvy was important to Obama’s victory in 2008, earned media and social media are increasingly important. And Trump is the master of those. He read the GOP primary electorate better than the so-called pros, eviscerated his opponents and has positioned himself as the ultimate anti-establishment vote. It was a stunning achievement.

          But getting elected is one thing and actually delivering for the American worker and the middle class is another.

          Perhaps the President is really a behind the scenes dynamo with a master plan that will be revealed to us in time.

          But political power is evanescent. I wouldn’t wait much longer.

            Interesting discourse.

            Most of your disappointment/anxiety in our President seems to be fraught with his domestic agenda. A deep-rooted dark STATE isn’t just going to “lay down”, not with trillions of dollars and long political careers at stake.

            But I don’t see a word from you in your posts about his incredible foreign policy achievements thus far. Achievements so tantamount, its historical. All in just 7 months. You’d likely be more inclined to praise these achievements had the MSM actually covered it. So disappointing are they in that regard!

            Trumps biggest battle doesn’t come from the rest of the world, it comes from Washington D.C. where Satan has built his largest nest. For you, I suggest patience in the Lord and in President Trump while they work toward building the foundation of a good, righteous and productive government for Americans as it was originally intended.

            You seem to heap a lot of praise at times for our President, but when I read your statements, I read doubt in your words…….so your message lacks potency. At least here amongst his most ardent supporters. JMHO.

        Oh SUNDANCE… If there was ever a time to build a page on the front of CTH that listed ALL OF TRUMPS WINS SO FAR… so every poster could point people like Pinkie to it just to remind them of what Trump has accomplished to date. He has done more good than any president in the last 50 years… and yes, ending TPP push, Paris Agreement, WH correspondent dinner, etc. is just as good as the deals he is making. People want to say, “well he hasn’t built the wall yet…”. When Trump campaigned, I told my kids the wall will never be built but it matters none because you will see illegal immigration drop and ICE will begin to do its job. That alone will change the landscape.

        How you can say that an outsider politician in DC has “disappointed” you is beyond belief. The man has taken more arrows from the world than any other political figure in my lifetime (50 years). I am so very proud that there has been 1 candidate in my lifetime that actually does what they promise. The man will most likely get 8 years of presidency. If you look at what he had tackled in the last couple of months… 8 years is a long time to accomplish everything on his list. May God protect him and continue to give him the strength he needs to drain the swamp.

      Comeys firing forced out into the public the TRUTH that President Trump had NEVER been the subject of an FBI investigation. Comey had let Americans believe for 7 MONTHS that our President is a traitor installed by Putin. Everyone in DC knew this was a lie but Comey, rather than putting the lie to rest actually fed it. The sudden firing allowed Comeys records to be seized before he could destroy them or set up back up plans. The public firing with Trumps statement that Comey had told him he wasn’t under investigation forced Comey to FINALLY tell us the truth. Plus it makes anything he says seem like the petty whining of a fired former employee seeking revenge. Plus it brought the leaks to the fore front. What PTrump did was strategic. He’s had outside lawyers working on leakers and Comey for months. This was planned out IE if you think any of this is due to PTrump being rash or inexperienced you are getting your news from the swamp or pearl clutchers. This is war. It’s dangerous. These people are literally killers. And completely evil. PTrump needs our prayers. He also has my admiration. He’s brilliant.

    Sundance is correct. The reason why Comey mentioned the special prosecutor part was to taint Mueller’s work. He didn’t actually leak to have Mueller appointed because Mueller was appointed unofficially even before Trump tweeted and according to some reports he was actually there when Comey’s office was raided by Sessions.

    Mueller will nail the person who unmasked and leaked Flynn’s name. Comey will give that person up for a deal. His testimony was cleared by Mueller because Mueller essentially told him to come clean on everything he has done. Hence the confirming the President was not under investigation, the Lynch Comments, and his being there means there is no obstruction case. Samantha Powers, Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes and co are the people that Mueller’s people are going to be nailing. Comey will get off lighter because Mueller is his friend but he will hand everybody over even his friend at Columbia Law School.

      You may be right.. The decision to appoint Mueller was taken by Rosenstein. We don’t know who else was in the mix when it came to centering on the individual for the job of Special Counsel.

      Even if Comey leaked the memo in anticipation of the appointment or to hasten it, it’s unlikely that he would have known that the role would be filled by Mueller. Rosenstein, at least based on that sharply worded memo that he wrote dissing Comey and his well-regarded reputation, would not have disclosed those kind of details to Comey, of all people.

      So i am hoping Mueller is getting an attack team together to go after the unmasking. Who the hell knows…all we can be sure of is that swamp is filthy as hell.

    This entire affair is being orchestrated by the Uniparty to get Trump impeached or at least neutralized. Comey is just one of the actors in this drama and they are trying to make him out to be a tragic figure. The Uniparty wants this to be headlines everyday and they are chumming the waters to excite the sharks in the MSM.

    The new Special Council’s job is to keep the “scandal” alive and to look for “easy pickens” to indite people from the Trump administration. They got Flynn tried and convicted in the press without any legal action and caused Trump to make an unforced error by firing him. That created the impression that there was collusion with the Russians when there wasn’t any. Bad move for POTUS. All of the swamp creatures lively hood depends on maintaining the corrupt status quo and there are virtually trillions of dollars at stake.

    This is going to get a helluva lot uglier if POTUS and the DoJ dont fire Mueller now. If this is let to play out it will turn into a Watergate drama with the swamp dwellers calling the shots. I’d like to see POTUS stop tweeting while this is going on. Better to blind side these bastards in the MSM and the swamp dwellers and act quickly and decisively to kick ass and take names. If this manufactured crisis is allowed to fester and go on through the summer, Trumps big agenda items will never get accomplished.

    Firing was not botched. Firing done specifically while Comey was out of town for a very good reason. I also think firing was planned from the very beginning. Why would you want this person as your FBI Director after his shenanigans last year? I wouldn’t. Trump kept him on to purposefully gather as much intel as he could about Comey, who his associates were, who he talks to, etc. Gather the evidence so if Comey comes back to bite, you have him. No escape for Comey.

    I think Comey put out the Lynch bait very specifically to signal he’d be willing to barter, if he is in trouble for any leaks to the press. He wants Trump or Sessions to give him a pass in exchange for his witness testimony on Lynch or others in the Obama Administration. That was pretty clear to me.

    I hope tomorrow, when Sessions testifies in an open hearing, that much of what Trump has on Comey is revealed. I cannot wait.

They tried to argue that she somehow tried to manipulate stock values in her company simply by DENYING GUILT!! Judge tossed it a week or so before trial, Steward found guilty of lying to the FBI as I recall.

        As for Comey’s involvement, he wasn’t even the lead prosecutor on the case. I think it was a female. Comey was just the talking head and bureaucrat in charge. If Comey has personally tried 25 cases to a jury I’ll eat my MAGA hat. Real prosecutors have literally hundreds under their belt in a career, believe it.

        Comey has a history of overreach on cases, including obstruction cases.

        Most people don’t remember, or never knew, that Comey tried to convict her of a 10 year felony based upon the statement “I am innocent”. That’s what I mean when I say lawyers need to do the talking at this stage of the game. Traps exist for the unwary. “Ounce of prevention worth a pound of cure”, and all that.

    A few points…..

    1. Post above that PDJT should not have fired Comey. Totally disagree for the simple reason that the guy was incompetent and tainted. Forget corrupt and nut-job….. although he is both of those. Just from a performance standpoint, the guy had to be fired. You can NOT have a person Director of FBI with Comey’s track record (see Rosenstein memo on the recommendation to fire).

    2. From a communication standpoint, yes the firing could have been handled better.

    3. From the ‘way’ it was handled, totally appropriate to give no notice, happens all the time. In this case, I suspect it simply had to happen this way in order to secure files and secure his office which makes me think the DOJ knew there was evidence that Comey was hoarding.

    Finally, im of the mind-set the SC is unnecessary UNLESS they are going to focus on other things under cover of ‘collusion’ nonsense. If this is the case, look for Dems to start complaining and undermining the SC.

    I’m more concerned than you about the relationship between Robert Mueller and his protégé, friend and successor James Comey. Under the ethical cannons, Mr. Mueller should not have accepted this position if he thought there even was a possibility of a conflict on interest. When he disregarded that ethical cannon, Mueller became highly suspect.

    The positive outcome is Mueller has Comey’s number. The negative outcome is Mueller has Comey’s number, doesn’t care, and wants to use it to enrich himself. Which is the more likely?
