Sara Carter and Sean Hannity Are Being Played By James Comey…

Continuing evidence continues to mount that James Comey is carefully playing an orchestrated scheme leading to counter-positioning he has constructed, and useful idiots are playing along without noticing who is baiting them.  This is so typically Comey.

The latest evidence surfaces as Sara Carter writes an article, based on a leak of a discussion Comey had with lawmakers in the closed intelligence committee session last Thursday.

However, what Carter and later Sean Hannity actually end up doing, under the auspices of catching Loretta Lynch in something sketchy, is restoring the dignity, honor and moral certitude of former FBI Director James Comey – JUST LIKE COMEY PLANNED.

It is actually getting hilarious to watch play out.

.

To understand the Machiavellian construct you must first READ THE SARA CARTER article and see how it favorably positions James Comey as the harbinger of all things moral and virtuous.  Secondly, you must understand James Comey (See Here).

Reminder: Nothing James Comey says or does is mere happenstance, it’s all well thought out; including the statement he made behind closed doors after planting the public testimony “Matter” talking point from Loretta Lynch as the seed for the closed session follow-up.

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. (more)

Anyone who is buying into the story of James Comey leaking the memos to his friend, Daniel Richman, to get a special prosecutor appointed is falling into the trap constructed entirely by James Comey.

James Comey admitted to the “leaking”, because that storyline is exactly what James Comey wanted to see play out in public.  James Comey is setting up Special Counsel Robert Mueller as fruit of a poisoned tree Comey would have you believe he planted.

Comey wants his political opposition to eliminate Robert Mueller.  Comey didn’t leak the memo to get Mueller appointed, he leaked the memo as an afterthought to cover for the leak mentioned by President Trump (May 12th), of a private conversation, that appeared in the New York Times on May 11th.

Remember, Comey controlled Asst. AG and Interim AG Sally Yates.  If Comey wanted a special counsel, Comey could have asked DOJ to appoint a special counsel any time he wanted.  He didn’t.

Comey didn’t, because the reality is he didn’t want a special counsel, because the reality is there’s no “there” there for the special counsel to investigate.  Comey was part of the political apparatus that constructed the “muh, vast Russian conspiracy” narrative and carefully nurtured it for over 8 months – even keeping congress in the dark on the entire matter.   Therefore James Comey knows there’s nothing within the narrative to substantiate the narrative.

Comey didn’t request appointment of a special counsel because the special counsel would only prove there’s nothing there.  However, the real risk is now in being “a leaker”.

How quickly everyone forgets those admitted conversations by James Comey friend at Lawfare blog Benjamin Wittes:

“I did not know this particular fact, but it doesn’t surprise me at all. The principal source for the rest of this story is, well, me—specifically a long interview I gave to reporter Michael Schmidt on Friday about my conversations with FBI Director James Comey over the last few months, and particularly about one such conversation that took place on March 27 over lunch in Comey’s FBI office.” (link)

Benjamin Wittes admits that FBI Director James Comey specifically leaked to him the content of private communications with President Trump.  Taken in conjuction with admitted leaks to his other friend Daniel Richman, Comey is transparently in a position of being fingered as the source of multiple media leaks to NYT reporter Michael Schmidt.

THAT IS THE RISK TO James Comey.  The discovery that Comey was the leaker is the risk represented by Robert Mueller and is inherent in Comey’s need to control the framework of his leaking.

The problem, the illegality, is now the leaking – NOT the original (nothingburger) issue of the Russian election hacking narrative.

That nothingburger reality hasn’t changed just because the Russian Election Hacking Narrative (November), turned into the Russian Trump Conspiracy Narrative (December), which evolved into the Russian Trump Collusion Narrative (January), that has now become the Russian Trump Obstruction Narrative (May)… etc.

♦ Trump fired Comey on Tuesday May 9th.

♦ The New York Times wrote their “Loyalty” article on Thursday May 11th.  With leaked details of the private dinner meeting between President Trump and Director Comey.

♦ President Trump tweeted about possible “Tapes” on Friday May 12th.

♦ Supposedly Comey gave his friend Richman the “loyalty memo” to leak on Tuesday May 16th. And later told congress the intent was to spur a special prosecutor.  However, if you accept the probability this was a strategic justification in hindsight, things make more sense.

♦ More sense, because Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller on Wednesday May 17th.  Obviously there was more than a few days of internal discussion about the appointment.

♦ Friday May 19th Rod Rosenstein testifies to congress about his support for Comey’s firing.

Now, think it through.  In perspective, and knowing Comey never requested a special counsel himself; and knowing there’s no “there” there amid the vast Russian conspiracy nonsense; Robert Mueller is currently more of a threat to James Comey than he is to President Trump.

James Comey’s carefully presented admissions to congress, including his leaking and his motivation therein, is Machiavellian Comey positioning to undermine the special counsel – and bait his opposition into removing it.

Secondly, in the abstract, the mention of Loretta Lynch and the “matter” comments were entirely arbitrary, out of place, and generally unneeded in the framework of Comey’s testimony.

James Comey brought up the issue of Loretta Lynch because he wanted it brought up; and he wanted it brought up in public testimony to fuel media and ensure it was present in the minds of the public.  Comey also wanted to expand on the comments in the closed briefing; and he also planned on getting that closed briefing discussion into the bloodstream of his opposition (Carter/Hannity) because it benefits his intentions.

Again, think it through.

Comey briefed the same intelligence committee behind those closed doors twice, over three months, about President Trump never being under investigation.  THAT never leaked.  However, two leaks (so far) come out from the last closed door briefing: one about AG Sessions (Mayfair Hotel), and the second about Loretta Lynch (as Sara Carter outlines).

Those leaks are scripted.  James Comey wants those leaks.  James Comey is playing this.

James Comey wants the risk that is Special Counsel Robert Mueller shut down.  Utilizing the bathtub principle James Comey also wants public banter, leading to another entire congressional inquiry about former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.  This keeps Comey coming back to Capitol Hill; this keeps Comey in the loop; this keeps Comey….

James Comey is controlling all of this, and yet those playing along just can’t see it.  Former FBI Director James Comey is steeped in the dark arts of self-serving manipulation. It is a character trait necessary for life at the top of the food chain in the deep DC swamp.

Once you see the strings on the marionettes it’s impossible to watch the performance and not see them.

It was in FEBRUARY  when the FBI (McCabe) went to President Trump’s Chief of Staff privately and told Reince Priebus there was no truth to media reports, based on FBI leaks, of FBI evidence showing Trump campaign officials involved with Russian officials regarding the 2016 election.  It was all a complete nothingburger.

Details – On February 15th while discussing another issue FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe asked Reince for 5 minutes alone after the meeting.  At the one-on-one meeting McCabe told Priebus the New York Times Russia and Trump campaign story was a “bunch of BS”.

Priebus asked McCabe if McCabe would be able to say that publicly and get the media off his back about a ridiculously false narrative.  Asst. Director McCabe said he would check with his boss, FBI Director James Comey.  Later, McCabe called back and said he couldn’t issue a statement about it.

reince-preibus-mccabe

Reince Priebus was simply asking for the FBI to give truthful information about the false reports to the public.  The White House was asking Comey to deliver transparency.

Quote from the FBI to Priebus: “We’d love to help, but we can’t get into the position of making statements on every story”…

In hindsight, from current appearances, those February leaks (mentioned above) that drove the New York Times February report were actually leaks coming from James Comey.

Stop and think about it. McCabe is telling Priebus not to worry about a NYT report based on leaks coming from Comey.  James Comey then tells Priebus he cannot publicly refute the story based on his leaking.

Yea.  Perhaps now you see how Machiavellian this is.

      Good cop, bad cop. Except they’re both bad.

      I have to admit, I have NEVER seen a pair of crooks as skillful as Comey and Lynch. I thought she was the bigger commie crook, having successfully kept her radicalism 100% off-paper, but Comey may be even better. Except for running to a bed of commies to do his leaking, and except for his long history of letting Hillary off the hook, he’s surface-clean.

      Remember the golden rule of the Obama administration. Every single one of his people were either hacks, owned, or loyalists. EVERY one of them.

      The site author is intelligent and clever. However, there are obvious omissions and lots of sophistry. One of the diversions is the focus on Carter and Hannity, both seem to be anti-deep state. You see no focus on Mueller’s obvious bias, conflicts, and history. If Comey lied about Lynch then he committed another crime. The author wishes you all to read his writings and feel good to be graced with such intelligence. The author is deep state, lures readers but then will let the readers down when key situations are reached. One situation was Trump’s attack on Syria. The pattern has become obvious. The story here is that Lynch, Comey and others have incriminated themselves and deserve immediate investigations in Congress and the DOJ. The story is not about Hannity and Carter being tricked. I see them on TV this week, they are earnest and breaking ground that this site will not touch.

    Sundance, I have 2 points of disagreement with your theory. One, related to the timeline, we know that Comey LIED under oath about the memo leak. The nyt story came out prior to the date he gave as when he gave his buddy the memo to leak. Second, Mueller appears to be going all in on the side of the democrats. This second disagreement is far more speculative, but I can only see what Mueller has done so far, staffing up with lefty hatchet men and women. Including the former Clinton foundation lawyer, Rhee. That’s a dirty crew he’s been putting together. I would like to think that Mueller is a danger to Comey, but so far it looks like he’s Comeys dance partner.

      It could also be that Mueller also know there’s nothing “there” there and is stacking up his team with partisan Dem hacks in order to do what Comey is attempting to do, i.e. bait Trump supporters into calling for the dissolving of the special counsel. There is no benefit to calling off the special counsel for Trump supporters. It only means that liberals will get to kick the “Muh Russia!” can down the road indefinitely and milk it as a “scandal” for the next four years. Mueller would rather be fired than have to present a finding that basically shows nothing.

      If you knew beforehand that the real danger is directed at Lynch, Holder, Obama, etc., wouldn’t it be better is they are outed and prosecuted by Mueller and his democrat team? I feel pretty confident that Mueller knows that Muh Russia is a ruse. And don’t forget, so does Trump. Feinstein’s comments sound like a warning shot over the bow to her fellow dems not to interfere in the investigation. It’s time to for the party to cut the Clintons, DWS and the Obama crew loose.

        I think because the Trump guys knew the first thing that would happen is a deal getting cut for Comey to skate.

        Perfect solution. Comey offers up a mia culpa for minor offenses, gets to blame everyone else for why he did what he did, the dems say ‘tsk tsk’ and grudgingly admit that Trump is vindicated. Alles Paletti (German for ‘everything’s cool’) and book deals all around.

        The only problem (for them) is Trump isn’t playing along.

        The best possible thing for Mueller at this point is to get fired. Otherwise, he’s going to get Ken Starr’d. My take is he’s bringing in the dems’ “Ogie” Oglethorpes to make it obvious he needs to get fired

        Whatever deal Comey cut, Trump blew up with the “prevalent leaks” tweet, essentially telling him the next stuff I’m going to release is going to void that deal.

        Trump really looks like he’s not going to allow a Lois Lerner redux, where she walked and got a fat pension. So, either there’s more legal trouble for Comey, or Kasowitz is going to crush him in a civil suit.

        I say that because I read that Kasowitz wasn’t planning on doing anything until he watched Comey’s testimony. Comey screwed up somehow and they’re all sitting ducks.

        TLDR; Mueller would cut and deal than be trapped when Trump’s guys upped the ante after they showed their hand.

I don’t agree that he fears a Mueller investigation into his own activities. He knows that the administrative state cannot leave him exposed witout blowing up much more deep state nefarious activity. Mueller is setting up the spec counsel investigation for 2018 and 2020, not stretch Comey.

    If there was a “steely silence” around a situation, that situation ought to be condemned. If a person makes Comey’s stomach “queasy,” that person must be guilty of whatever charges are brought against him. If a President of the United States makes Comey feel uncomfortable, that President should be impeached and put to jail.

    Comey is the purest, all knowing, most perfect jury, judge and executioner rolled up into one. We are ever so lucky to have such a god-like person in our midst.

    Trump isn’t going to fire Mueller. Can you fire the defense attorney if you’re a prosecutor in a case?That would ignite an unnecessary feeding frenzy about obstruction of justice by his enemies. It would only add fuel to their fake fire. Mueller is the swamp’s defense attorney, SC is a cover. Need to have the public accept the final outcome of the “investigation” so he needs to play the SC for the play. It didn’t take Rosenstein just a few days to search, vet, and appoint Mueller. It was in the works for weeks. Important position. Was not a cavalier decision. Trump is giving Mueller time to either make a deal or make a big mistake.

    Mueller is using Comey’s claims/leaks as trial balloons & communications tactics to the swamp critters. He can’t directly communicate with them without suspicion,

    Comey is the man in the middle, happy to be used by Mueller. Ultimately, he’s looking out for his own interests. Comey’s office was the only office that was raided (that we know of). Comey knows what evidence Trump/Sessions has from his office. None of Comey’s swamp allies know the full scope of that evidence (maybe the Clintons know). Comey knows this and he is using it to leverage both sides to secure a deal for himself. That’s why all of the testimony and the leaks and the contradictions and the manipulations and the ratting out of Lynch. Leverage.

        ____________

        I like the theory, but it appears to be based on the premise that we still operate as a nation of laws, and I am not aware of any evidence to support that premise (for a long time now).

        When was the last prosecution of a high level government official? The only one that comes to mind is Scooter Libby, in what turned out to be a hit-job/scapegoat swamp-serving maneuver, and Scooter Libby wasn’t even a high government official, he was an advisor to the vice-president.

        When was the last time a former director of the FBI or the CIA or the NSA or a Senator or an Attorney General or head of the IRS or any other corrupt agency in the swamp ARRESTED and PROSECUTED for anything?

        Has it ever happened in modern history?

        Because if it hasn’t, then we’re all operating on a false model or understanding of what’s really going on. We’re operating based on the rules for ‘baseball’ (for example), while in reality, the swamp is operating based on the rules of ‘soccer’.

        Hence the disconnect, why nothing ever makes any logical sense, why no one is ever prosecuted for anything. They are playing an entirely different game, by different rules, and it is to their benefit to allow “us” to think they’re still operating according the ‘rules’ we all ‘assume’ should apply.

    which is the master-move that President Trump has done, by letting the DOJ set up a special investigator, he stays away from it; because when it ends it will not be pretty, it will be that ugly that Sundance mentioned a short while ago.

    When this thing ends, I think the plug will finally have been pulled from the bottom of the swamp and all its creatures are going to get drained. Comey may be the personification of the swamp’s plug and once this is done, it will drain naturally.

      “At some point in time the one thing I have always noticed with people like this is there will come a time when he will know the gig is up – and he will have a certain mannerism or head movement with a look upon his face, acknowledging his game didn’t work…”

      That was what I saw Comey’s response to be when Rubio said: the only thing that didn’t leak was that the President WASN’T being investigated.

      IIRC Comey had that split second brain fart that he’d been caught red handed, and even someone noddingly agreed with Rubio.

      But that didn’t stop on. Just went on to more lies.

    It seems to me Trump and crew are just going about their business MAGA while content letting the dogs worry their bone. In other words, stomping on pissants while the elephants go by. Trump and crew being the elephants.

    Also it gives the do nothing congressional oversight committee something to mangle about while offering us entertainment. There is something for the Deep State, UniParty, Establishment elites a reason to have nervous anxiety. MAGA remains on course behind the scenes so to speak.

    So, according to Sundance’s theory, Comey has thrown Lynch under the bus? Doesn’t make him sound like much of a team player.

    Or is it done with the knowledge that Loretta Lynch won’t mind her name being bandied about in this case, since she’ll have some sort of magical-shield protection so no harm will come to her anyway?

          Paper on former President Exec privilege: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1304302

          Abstract

          “The Constitution provides former Presidents with no powers or role, and yet numerous former Presidents including Truman and Nixon have asserted executive privilege in order to withhold information from Congress, historians, and the public. The most recent former President, George W. Bush, is likely to make similar assertions based upon his sweeping view of the rights of former Presidents as reflected in his recently revoked Executive Order 13,233, potentially leading to a constitutional collision between the rights of former Presidents and those of Congress. This article argues that notwithstanding Nixon v. Administrator of General Services, former Presidents should retain no right to assert executive privilege based upon the text, structure and historical context of the Constitution and its antimonarchical premises, as well as the nature of executive privilege when compared to other privileges.”

          It may have to go up to the Supreme Court.

    In this play, MC is the only Ozero top dog left on the stage. Clapper, HRC, Rice, LL, Powers, Holder – gone. Comey is gone, too, but won’t leave.

    It is being orchestrated, though.

    Right after Comey got fired, he appeared on 60 Minutes. Just after that, maybe on that Monday’s presidential thread, I noted that the whole focus seemed to be to paint Comey as a towering moral force. —This is thus a sustained strategy: paint Comey as a noble victim. That implies: his prosecutors and critics are the evil ones.

    You don’t just happen to show up on 60 Minutes on short notice. And, on 60 Minutes, they don’t throw just anyone a beautiful, tear-jerker retirement send-off. That was orchestrated.

    At great risk, I am going to disagree with Sundance.

    it is beginning to appear that Mueller is the latest attempt of the Swamp to goad Trump into committing something they can position as “obstruction of justice”.

    Trump didn’t take the bait when Yates and Comey dangled Flynn. And he didn’t take the bait with Comey despite persistent intransigence of the former Director.

    Unless something is done to rein in the Special Counsel and insure that he acts right (virtually impossible), and if he doesn’t recuse himself over the Comey matter, it will be necessary to fire him.

    This could get very, very dicey.

    Mueller will shut down when he discovers Comey is in the middle, stacked atop Lynch, atop Obama, atop Clinton.

    The perpetrators cannot be parsed. They are all in the same boat.

    He may try to draw blood on Trump with Manafort and the Russian billionaire, and/or General Flynn with some recommendation for another investigation-trial to prosecute on not having registered as Foreign Agent in timely fashion.

    However, he’s best put to shut it down after 90-120 days.
    The reason he is choosing all Dems for the investigators roles is to make certain they close all the avenues to Dem criminality. It’s a cover and seal job. Not an explore and investigate.

    Mueller can get his entire reputation destroyed if he actually goes forth as a Special Prosecutor.
    He won’t escape whole if he fails to prosecute some Dems.

    And he will never establish precedent and prosecute Comey. Not only is Comey a close friend, he,lie Mueller was Director of FBI. So, Mueller cannot act and will not act.

    120 days, it will be over.

    The entire “L’affaire Russe” was born from the bogus dossier.
    My 19 year old grandson cracked that in 48 hours when it hit the Internet.
    It’s all fabrication by Ukrainians, Mi6, McCain and Comey.

    As for Flynn, I’ll add this data points.
    TheTurkey coup by Gulen was now reported bankrolled by UAE ($3Billion to Gulen).
    Flynn represented Turkish interests briefly arguing for exposing Gulen.
    The Turks yesterday announced that the assassination of the Russian ambassador in Turkey was a Gulen plot.

    So, Flynn, working secretly for Trump from the campaign to transition to his resignation was heavily involved in exposing the CIA/Gulen plots of the coup and the assassination of the ambassador.

    This is serious stuff when it gets to Flynn. He knows everything and everybody in the IC and Deep State moves. Gulen is a CIA wholly owned asset and proxy.

    It began with the attempted coup of Erdogan. He is MB protector. He is now allied with Russia and Iran and protects Qatar. The policy we see against Qatar was originally aimed at Turkey. It didn’t work. Think of the series of things that happened thereafter.

    They had to get Flynn. To silence him. And it is working.

    Comey may be trying to direct hoe this plays out to cover his arse. However, the appointment of Mueller is validly troubling (especially seeing how he is staffing his team with pro Hillary, anti Trump people). I often look at what others are thinking and what their instincts tell them. From that perspective it is hard not to weigh all the Chuck Schumer/Adam Schiff types who demand Mueller stay vs the Newt Gingrich/Rep Sean Duffy types who think Mueller should recuse or be fired. At the same time, Trump doesn’t allow enemies to hold power over his fate.

    So, I am deeply confused.

    Why not replace Mueller with someone who doesn’t have ties to the enemy camp though?

    Comey may not be comfortable with Mueller (but, I think that is debatable). However there is no way Mueller accepted the job hoping to be fired from same job.

    I always wondered what spurred the appointment of a special counsel to begin with?
    If a special counsel is appointed only when it appears there is an actual crime….then who are they going after? I originally thought it might be to go after “unmaskers” and “leakers” not people who simply talked to Russians (no crime). However, I haven’t seen any movement in that direction either. The direction seems to be more in the direction of Trump obstruction–and going after Trump. Yet, Trump doesn’t seem worried or upset by any of this (and allowed Comey to testify). I don’t know what’s going on.

    This guy Comey really is a nut job and he is OBVIOUSLY carefully scripting what he’s saying to lay the groundwork for the scenario he wants and landscape he is CREATING! Too bad so many people are playing into his lies and becoming his puppets to carry out the agenda.

    Look at the similarities here in Comey’s testimony.

    Sarah Carter in this video: “Comey told lawmakers in the private session that when he confronted her (Lynch) with that piece of evidence she… (as he described it to lawmakers)

    ***** (queue the dramatic music) ….”she basically stared at me (him) and there was a long STEELY SILENCE”, as he described it to lawmakers “a long STEELY SILENCE.” (..ooooh)

    Now in his written statement when he testified recently about the meeting with Trump:

    ***** (queue the dramatic music)….”I didn’t move, speak, or change my facial expression in any way during the AWKWARD SILENCE that followed. We simply LOOKED AT EACH OTHER I SILENCE.

    This nut job is living in an alternate dark universe. I think Sundance nailed it 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.

    Maybe John Solomon (the head of the Circa “news” agency) and Sara Carter aren’t being duped at all. Maybe they are getting paid or threatened to play along. Or maybe it’s positioning by the Sinclair group that owns Circa. It’s not every day that the head of a “news” agency puts his name into a byline — and first, at that. …We don’t know yet.

    We do know that the Sinclair group was involved in an interesting dynamic of Trump campaign coverage, apparently leveraged by Jared Kushner, so there’s probably a much deeper dynamic at play with the Circa story than simply that the authors are being duped by Comey.

    Many possibilities out there.

He also knew that the obstruction allegation would put Rosenstein on the hot spot and make him look like a patsy for writing the “fire Comey” memo, in that it wold make Rosenstein look complicit. Rosenstein folded as predicted upon being called a “patsy” and “tool of Trump” by none other than Richman (Comey) and a host of others, and special counsel was appointed in a matter of days, and screams of “Obstruction!” by the dems. began. Just my theory, of course.
