Devin Nunes, Bob Goodlatte and Trey Gowdy Respond to Release of Comey Memos…

Washington, D.C. – Today House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Ca.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) issued the following statement:

“We have long argued former Director Comey’s self-styled memos should be in the public domain, subject to any classification redactions. These memos are significant for both what is in them and what is not.

Former Director Comey’s memos show the President made clear he wanted allegations of collusion, coordination, and conspiracy between his campaign and Russia fully investigated. The memos also made clear the ‘cloud’ President Trump wanted lifted was not the Russian interference in the 2016 election cloud, rather it was the salacious, unsubstantiated allegations related to personal conduct leveled in the dossier.

The memos also show former Director Comey never wrote that he felt obstructed or threatened. While former Director Comey went to great lengths to set dining room scenes, discuss height requirements, describe the multiple times he felt complimented, and myriad other extraneous facts, he never once mentioned the most relevant fact of all, which was whether he felt obstructed in his investigation.

The memos also make certain what has become increasingly clear of late: former Director Comey has at least two different standards in his interactions with others. He chose not to memorialize conversations with President Obama, Attorney General Lynch, Secretary Clinton, Andrew McCabe or others, but he immediately began to memorialize conversations with President Trump. It is significant former Director Comey made no effort to memorialize conversations with former Attorney General Lynch despite concerns apparently significant enough to warrant his unprecedented appropriation of the charging decision away from her and the Department of Justice in July of 2016.

These memos also lay bare the notion that former Director Comey is not motivated by animus. He was willing to work for someone he deemed morally unsuited for office, capable of lying, requiring of personal loyalty, worthy of impeachment, and sharing the traits of a mob boss. Former Director Comey was willing to overlook all of the aforementioned characteristics in order to keep his job. In his eyes, the real crime was his own firing.

The memos show Comey was blind to biases within the FBI and had terrible judgment with respect to his deputy Andrew McCabe. On multiple occasions he, in his own words, defended the character of McCabe after President Trump questioned McCabe.

Finally, former Director Comey leaked at least one of these memos for the stated purpose of spurring the appointment of Special Counsel, yet he took no steps to spur the appointment of Special Counsel when he had significant concerns about the objectivity of the Department of Justice under Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

As we have consistently said, rather than making a criminal case for obstruction or interference with an ongoing investigation, these memos would be Defense Exhibit A should such a charge be made.”  (link)

      “This has been a long investigation…..mistakes were clearly made on both sides. Now is the time to come together. Therefore it has been decided that Mueller will end his investigation and the IG will issue a report pointing out wrongdoing but there will be no criminal charges. For the good of the country it would be much to painful to drag the country through months and months of trials.” The President has been advised of this resolution and agrees.

      I hope this isn’t what is coming.

      I have never believed the Comey memos prompted the appointment of Mueller because the memos were leaked May 16th & Mueller was appointed May 17th. How do you get a person in place that quick ?!! I think Mueller was lined up ready to go & the memo drop was the green flag. Problem was they didn’t wait long enough, (1 day), for the timeline to make sense but nobody has ever questioned how it happened so fast.

            I know that this sounds a little far out… but what if it was actually PDJT who wanted Mueller appointed as SC…

            According to Comey, PDJT wanted the cloud to be gone… I think it is very likely that only half of the stuff Comey wrote in the memos is true… actually who knows when he wrote the memos… I think he wrote them after he was fired, not before…

            I can see that PDJT wanted the dossier investigated, to get to the truth… clear not only himself but also his associates…

            Rosenstein is PDJT’s man… he appointed him…. Sessions recused himself… When Comey was more talk than action… maybe he talked to Rosenstein to set the whole thing up… Maybe there were no limits set on the scope of the investigations because PDJT wanted to keep it open… to possibly have other things investigated that would creep out of the woodworks…

            Maybe, just maybe that is the reason for PDJT not firing Rosenstein or Mueller… just looking at it from a different angle…

      The media is crowing today how the revealed memos show clearly that Trump is guilty. Did I read the same memos they have? I saw little to nothing that seemed indicative of criminal activity. In fact there was more showing Trump’s desire to have everything particularly the hotel and the bed stuff investigated and found to be false. HE NEVER STAYED AT ANY HOTEL THAT NIGHT!! An easily proved claim. A question whether Comey was loyal but no demand to take a loyalty oath. And other such stretches that only look slightly bad if you back off and squint real hard and want to see something, anything, to make Trump look bad. What a nothing burger. On top of Comey’s failure to inform Trump that the so called dossier was paid for and written up by a bunch of DNC operatives it kind of takes the cake that they managed to parlay nothing into a 2 year illegal investigation that has now been spread into another venue of weasels who are quite willing to violate protocol, standards and the law to pin something anything on Trump.

      My God and these people have all this power. What petty pettifoggers. I’m ashamed of the FBI and the DOJ but then after 8 years of Holder and Obama who could expect anything different.

    Every single pos that was involved with this needs to be charged with every crime that can be pinned on them. I don’t care if it was jaywalking. Deny bail in every single instance. No exceptions. Prosecute them to the fullest extent allowed under the law. No secret trials. Televise it and broadcast it worldwide. With continuous loop reruns translated in every language ever known to mankind. Even dead languages like Latin. Absolutely no plea bargaining at all. Even for those that are cooperating or turning states evidence. Especially for them. For those that are found guilty, apply the maximum sentence allowed. For those that cooperated, reduced sentences. To be served in the general prison population. None of this expensive, safe, for their own good, solitary confinement. And make it known that if this ever happens again, the terms and conditions will be a lot harsher. For those that are found innocent, reimburse them for attorney fees and whatever else it cost them. But for the prosecutors, make damn sure that you have irrefutable evidence of their guilt before charging them with a crime. If you don’t and charge them anyway, you’re sanctioned to the point of never being able to practice law again and can be sued in civil court. I’m pissed.

      Yes and I am glad Melania gets to read of her husband’s concern for her in all of this. These conspirtors have done so much harm to the Office of the Presidency and the First Family and extended first family members. Nothing corrects that.

      I have nothing but contempt for each and every one of them – including their families who were an extended part of the inner circle of conspirators. They all deserve to suffer the loss of money and home just like they did to Flynn and are in the process of trying to do to others. As their spouses rack up hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, in legal fees for a defense of which there is none, they deservedly will be left holding the debt as they spouses go to the place of free room and board. They will deserve bear the public shame, (which they have relentlessly tried to cast on Melania) and financial losses as they were complicit and supportive — just like the wives’ of terrorists.

      I care as much for what happens to them as they cared what happened to Melania, my President and my fellow Treepers.

      Good riddance to bad rubbish.

      Shake the dust off your feet.

  33. In my previous career, I wrote memos to file quite often. I included facts, not my impressions. Comey is inept at best.

    After reading the Comey memos all I can say is it’s pure CYA. Just the tone of the narratives shows it’s just personal hearsay. It means nothing. Couple that with Comey’s disaster of a book tour and you get a proven and exposed serial liar. A weasel.

  36. The take away.
    That led to Comey leaking multiple memos in order to get a special counsel appointed out of revenge. That special counsel has utterly distracted multiple agencies and embroiled all three branches of government at the highest levels. All over a document that was secretly funded by Hillary Clinton and the DNC, contracted by a Democrat research firm with ties to the Kremlin, and authored by a shady foreign spy whose relationship with the FBI was terminated because he lied to them.

      Correction. Fusion GPS are character assassins for hire. Their primary job was to frame Putin so Hillary could take him out after she won. Remember, she never thought she would lose. Framing Trump as a Putin puppet was secondary. A campaign ploy to peel away GOP voters. The Russian hysteria only began in earnest after Trump won and they wanted to get rid of him before he discovered their many scandals, including the fact that the UK had been spying on Trump, at Obama/Brennans request since 2015. Steele did NOT use Kremlin sources. This was a UK/Australia/US operation with help from Ukraine (which is a haven for Putin hating Russians).

    James Commie admitted to leaking the memos in order to trigger a Special Council.

    There is nothing in the memos that would in any way warrant Rosenstein to appoint a Special Council!

    If anything, the memo vindicates President Trump!

    Rosenstein and Commie better damn well explain themselves as they claim his memos are what triggered the Special Council appointment and the investigation into Trump Russia “collusion”!!!

      Comey, Rosenstein, and Mueller have a history together.

      Comey and Rosenstein worked together to whitewash White Water.

      Rosenstein worked for Mueller at the DOJ.

      Comey, who became acting AG on the day AG Ashcroft fell ill, refused to reauthorize a surveillance program and he and Mueller rushed to the hospital to prevent Ashcroft from countermanding him.

      (In my opinion) Comey, Rosenstein, and Mueller conspired to frame Trump.

      Comey could not appoint a special council.

      Comey has stated he leaked with the intent to have a special counsel appointed.

      Comey and Rosenstein met several times just prior to Rosenstein’s memo recommending Comey be fired.

      Comey’s firing would further the narrative that Trump is obstructing the “Russia Investigation”, imply guilt, and generate the necessary optics.

      Comey is fired.

      In the ensuing commotion Rosenstein appoints Mueller as special counsel.

      Rosenstein’s authorization to Mueller is very broad and open ended.

      Rosenstein later retroactively authorizes Mueller to actions Mueller has already taken.

      Rosenstein repeatedly delays production of documents, requests extra time, ignores deadlines, and eventually produces partial information.

      Rosenstein sat on Comey’s memos, which ostensibly were the impetus for the special counsel, for a year. Now that they’ve been released lo and behold: there is zero evidence of “collusion” or coordination between Trump and Russia.

      Rosenstein is a filthy coup conspirator.

    Light bulb moment: the special counsel was not appointed based on the content of the memos. It was based on the media’s spin on the content of the memos. Just like the story planted in the media to give the Dossier credibility, the memos were given the same wash and rinse treatment to justify the special counsel.

    by Byron York-
    “A few more things. We had known earlier that Comey briefed Trump about the dossier one-on-one on January 6, 2017. But it was not until an interview Thursday with CNN’s Jake Tapper that Comey revealed the conversation was only about the Moscow sex allegation. The other parts of the dossier — about Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen, allegations of collusion — Comey did not mention to the president-elect. No wonder Trump associated the dossier with the Moscow sex story.

    We also know, from the new book Russian Roulette, by Michael Isikoff and David Corn, that immediately after the first Comey meeting, Trump thought the FBI was blackmailing him:

    “Trump had seen this sort of thing before,” they write. ”

    (Remember- the dodgy dossier was reported in the news the very next day.)

    One thing to remember here, many of Comey’s actions that lead to the appointment of the Special Counsel occurred after he was fired. That means he was no longer acting in an official capacity and lacked sovereign immunity.

    That means he is fully exposed when it comes to any malicious prosecution lawsuits.

    And he has already admitted UNDER OATH that the reason he leaked those memos was to start an investigation.

    I wonder. A very good defense lawyer might go to the USG guidlines for original classification authority and decide that these memos did not meet those standards. If so, they were improperly classified and the originator cannot be guilty of passing a classified document. After all, does this self-serving crap actually jeopardize the National Security of the USA, or merely that of James Comey and the FBI/DoJ? Just a thought.

    i think that what rudi may be coming in to “negotiate” are the terms under which rosenstein and mueller burn ALL the rest of the clinton-obama crime syndicate to the ground, i.e. hillary, bill,chelea, m/m obozo, the majority of both of their administrations, and all the lobbyists who assisted them in carrying out their decades-long RICO-teer operation. it was critical to their plan that this mueller attack on POTUS either take him out or severely cripple his ability to govern, but now that it has clearly failed they are out of options. NOBODY on their side was prepared for PDJT’s incredible strength of character. these relentless attacks for 3 years would have crushed anybody else and yet trump has accomplished more than anybody else in spite of a never-seen-before magnitude of personal attacks against a sitting president. what a president we have!

    i think that trump has now set the table now for rudi to come in and uproot the whole bunch of them at once, just like pulling a whole box of fish-hooks out by lifting one.

    one thing that still REALLY bothers me is GUMP. i just don’t know how to explain his recusal and apparent lack of interest in the attempted coup. maybe he’s been busy on the 25,000 sealed indictments across the country. whatever the reason for his absence, hopefully, it was by design and not some other reason. i really hope my fears turn out to be wrong about him, and if so, i will gladly admit i was wrong.

    These “memos” do not read like notes someone took close to a meeting.

    There is too much definition regarding inconsequential things; e.g. rooms, decor, direction, servers, etc.
    NB the reference to a “fun” discussion about “height clearance clearance in submarines”!
    Submarines have a continually changing height clearance. Supplies and foods are stored and packed along walkways, so that submariners walk on top of their foods and supplies when leaving on patrol.
    Tall submariners have to watch their heads. e.g. My Brother joined the submarine service, then spent his first four years studying and qualifying. During those four years, he grew approximately four inches putting his height over six feet.
    As food is consumed, submarine walkway height clearance increases, until almost everyone can walk upright.

    Comey describes his conversation with the servers as “fun”; yet gives no details.
    Why describe the conversation then?
    Why even mention it?

    Comey follows this pattern throughout the memos. weak vague references to discussions without explicit details; e.g. Trump’s demeanor as he spoke, Trump’s facial changes, whether anything surprised the President, etc.
    Yet Comey includes a lot of spurious details for basically unchanging surroundings.

    One suspects that Comey wrote these comments long, very long after the meetings and conversations actually occurred.

    Allowing Comey to surface cleanse his hatred towards trump along and all mentions of vituperative, vengeful, vindictive and less than legal activities or thoughts.

    Comey wrote these memos as distractions and an attempt to put Comey into a better public light. An action that Comey likely performed near when he started his “book”.

    This is interesting. When Comey testified to congress and leaked his classified memo’s, he spun his Jan 28 dinner like this:

    “I replied that I loved my word and intended to stay and serve out my ten year term as director. And then, because the set-up made me uneasy, I added that I was not “reliable” in the way politicians use that word, but he could always count on me to tell the truth. I added that I was not on anybody’s side politically and could not be counted on in the traditional political sense, a stance I said was in his best interest.

    A few moments later, the president said, “I need loyalty. I expect loyalty.” I didn’t move, speak, or change my facial expression in any way during the awkward silence that followed.”

    Now here is what he says in his memo:

    “He asked whether FBI leaks and I answered that of course in an organization of 36,000 we were going to have some of that, but I said I think the FBI leaks far less than people often say. I predicted he, like all Presidents, would discover the entire government leaks like crazy and explained that if often comes from the first or second hop out from those actually working on the sensitive thing.

    He replied that he needed loyalty and expected loyalty.”

    See the difference? In his sworn testimony Comey spins this discussion as if the context were Comey’s career as FBI director and the President is demanding his personal loyalty.

    But in the memo, it’s actually a discussion about leakers. Trump responds to Comey saying people leak like crazy with a comment about how he needs loyalty.

    Why isn’t this being talked about all over the place????

      Because ultimately wanting loyalty from an employee isn’t a crime. In fact it’s sane. Trump said he never brought loyalty up. I believe him, even though it’s irrelevant.

        Yes I agree but my point was that Comey mislead everyone in his sworn testimony. By subtly altering the context from “leakers” to “Comey’s employement”, he made a benign comment about wanting loyalty from *potential leakers) employees look like a sinister demand for a “loyalty pledge” from the director of the fbi.

        I hope someone with a bigger voice than mine notices this and talks about it. It seems like a big deal to me.
