Representative Jim Jordan Discusses Ongoing FBI, Andrew McCabe, James Comey Investigations…

Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) discusses the Comey memos and the ongoing Inspector General, FBI and DOJ events. A wide-ranging interview on Fox Weekend.

Jordan notes that congress has previously interviewed Comey’s chief-of-staff, Jim Rybicki, prior to his departure from the FBI. During that interview Rybicki discussed the person Comey leaked information to, Daniel Richman, and how Richman held special access authority within the FBI….. interesting.

    US Congress needs 100’s of Jim Jordans’. Straight shooter, likeable, down-to-earth, real white hat patriot working for a better American in Congress. Pray & vote to hold the House and that Jim Jordan runs for Speaker of the House…and we will be heading for MAGA winning.

    Given that Comey and Richman have asserted attorney-client privilege, I think an early-morning no-knock raid on Richman’s home and office might be appropriate.

      To the best of my recollection, Richman has appeared before Cong. Trey Gowdy and Cong. Jason Chaffetz of the House Oversight Committee before about 4 or 5 years back. I just can’t recall under what capacity or what the hearing was about, some where around the IRS scandal and the Bengazi issue. Trey had someone running YT uploads of their OS hearings under the moniker Amincus G- something. Perhaps fellow Treepers might know what I’m referring to. Any hoo, Jordan would be a good pick for the Speaker, but Scalise would be just as good too. I’m beginning to get the feeling that Ryan had to do his last blackmail job for the Deep Stink butt holes which was shoving through the Omnibus Bill! Ryan is one of the 6 Republicans that were bribed by HRC which was confirmed with the Podesta/DNC email dump under the account ledger kept by Podesta. Cheers fellow Treepers!

    Clapper, Clapper again, It always comes back to Clapper. Is he an operative or a primary strategist? Five years ago I complained to Feinstein about Clapper when Snowden’s details on spying on US citizens was aired.

    Sen. Ron Wyden: “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?”
    Clapper: “No sir.”
    Wyden: “It does not?”
    Clapper: “Not wittingly.”
    How my blood boils when the name clapper is mentioned.
    Oh, and Feinsten did nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing she is as dumb as a fence post in the prairie during a snow storm; and she wants to run again! – Ask me how I feel about either one of them….

      J, I don’t think Feinstein is a dummy.
      She is pretty reliable in her posing, which is why she has been a shoo-in for ages…No thought needed in voting for her, she has not even had to campaign for decades.
      Every once in a while she actually says something which makes sense, but she surely is a reliable commodity for those who bribe her: she’s, iirc one of the richest members of the Senate.
      She is not dumb, imo, and actually does represent her constituency, something most of us admire. Its just that, along with her constituents, she is off the rails of our view of America.

    Comey, during a Congressional hearing, stated that he considered the memo he shared with his professor friend to be a personal, not government & not classified.

    Comey is a sniveling, weaselly Liar.

    Comey leaked his memo(s) on or about late May 2017

    At The Time Comey’s memos were Written, they were classified as follows (per the notations on released memos. link at bottom of my post):

    * First memo dated1/6/17 & classified as SECRET/NOFORN. (fyi, noforn is “no foreign”)
    4/19/18 de-classified in Part.
    RE: 1st WH meeting & advised on prostitute duo
    Comey forwards that memo to Rybicki:

    Comey prefaces in that 1st memo:
    “I am not sure of the proper classification here so have chosen SECRET. Please let me know of(sic) it should be higher or lower than that.”

    {So, if this was Comey’s personal property as he claimed, why did he ask if he classified it at the proper level? Why would parts need to be “de-classified” when published this month if it was not classified to begin with? hmmmm}

    Note: the line drawn through the classification at the top of each memo means that, originally the Entire document was classified but, as indicated at the bottom of the memos, on 4/19/18 parts of the memo were de-classified & some remained classified.

        correct me if i am wrong but there are (at least) 5 legal issues with the memo leak:
        1) comey took government documents into his personal domain;
        2) comey took government documents which were classified into his personal domain
        – a domain which is not secure;
        3) comey passed government documents (which are not his to possess) to a person (Richmon) who is not a government employee (whether or not he has some contract employee status);
        4) comey passed govt documents which are classified documents to a person who does not have the proper security clearance (assumedly);
        5) comey conspired with another party to pass on classified documents to the NY Times; alternatively, comey instructed his agent, Richmon, to do the same.

        as well, we can assume that comey’s claim that Richmon was acting as his attorney, is a lie and furtherance of the conspiracy.

          c) Comey is destroying his own credibility so he can’t be used as a witness against Clinton / Obama, thus thinking he won’t have an accident in Arkansas
          d) Comey is hoping his previous crimes will not be investigated (distract with a smaller crime)
          e) Comey is actually that stupid

          Zimba- Let me preface my response.
          My opinion that 4 of the 7 memos were classified at the time written was based solely on the memos as released on line.
          As to my response to you: I’m a little rusty, since I retired, on the Federal Records Act & the law concerning classified material. So take my opinion w/ a grain of salt.

          #1) Yes-Since he was a civilian at the time
          18 U.S. Code § 641 – Public money, property or records
          https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/641

          #2) Since he was a civilian at that time – yes, likely violated
          18 U.S. Code § 793
          anyone who has custody of classified material and “willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years. (Note: Since he was the Dir. of FBI, he likely had an approved storage safe in his home)
          &/OR
          18 U.S. Code § 641 – Public money, property or records
          https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/641

          #3) I don’t think so. But if Comey wasn’t a buddy of Mueller, Yes. By stretching 18 U.S. Code § 641 “Whoever embezzles, steals, purloins, or knowingly converts to his use or the use of another. .” Comey got a great book deal out of it! ;-0

          #4) If the documents were, in fact, classified- Heck Yes. The professor did not have a “Need to Know” even if the professor did have the required clearance level. Both the clearance level & a need to know are required.

          #5) I doubt it.

    One thing I don’t understand about America – why do people retain their security clearances (and possible access to sites & information those clearances give them access to) after they leave Government/classified positions? This simply does not make sense to me and it shows a distinct lack of security awareness. Do Brennan, Clapper, Jarrett, Comey, et al all still retain their security clearances and access? Why, for goodness sake?
    Another problem I think you have – always referring to ‘ex’ people as though they still bear the title and occupy the position, e.g. ‘President’ Clinton, ‘SOS’ Hiliary Clinton, etc. Shades of ‘British Royalty and the class system’ – yet you fought a war against the British. Just does not make sense to me and I think that if you changed the way these people were addressed when they leave their positions, your country would be better off – or is there a deep seated desire for an ‘American Royal Family’ to inherit Head of State rulership?
    I may well be seeing this incorrectly, what with having to hang upside down on my twig.

      People do not “retain their security clearance” once they leave government service or their non-government job. Somebody has to actually complete and certify a request for retention of clearance. In fact, year to year a justification for clearances is required for each person.

      Somebody had to complete and certify these requests. In the cases of some of the people you mention,. it makes one wonder why and who?

      Although, in years past when politics and government service was far more cooperative and cordial, it was customary for clearances to be extended for a variety of operational, transitional and academic purposes. These days, with leaks and an out right hostile environment, it boggles the mind why allot of people from the Obama leadership were allowed to keep clearance.

      • thedoc00 says:

        Note, it also has to do what authorities were given and remain for granting clearances and applying classification designations. This is another reason for the republicans and democrats to slow roll Trumps appointments because many Obama era authorizations remain to be identified and eliminated. So, until Trump gets all his leaders in place the clean-up will be seriously delayed.

          One point missed, is that OSP’s comment on “need to know” is 100% accurate. So, besides certifying clearance retention, the “need to know” is also certified.

    After watching Jim Jordan (R-OH) on FoxNews, and how he had HRC under oath and asked her if a 3rd party (like a retired Federal Judge) would be satisfactory to sort through the emails to see which ones were personal, and which ones were US Govt records, she roared like a demon under Apostolic interrogation. [Okay, I embellished there.]

    Now we have Cohen arguing for a 3rd party to do the same, and Rosenstein’s attack dogs in the US Attorney SDNY are screaming “NO!”

    From now on, the 1st question that every (R) asks to confirm anyone for any office, especially under a (D) President should be:
    “Do you believe in Equal Justice Under The Law?”

    The next question should be “Do you believe in Equal Application of The Law, regardless of who is under scrutiny.”

    The next question should be “Do you believe in Double Standards, and if caught employing them, will you consent to being removed from office?”

  16. There were two very interesting articles this weekend about Fusion GPS and its founder, Glenn Simpson. The first article from Legal Insurrection, explains how Simpson and GPS, along with their cronies in the media, are still actively working to bring down our POTUS in what they call Act 2 of the coup that the Swamp Devils are working on.

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2018/04/fusion-gps-co-founders-signal-next-phase-in-attempted-trump-takedown-has-started/

    The Insurrection article is based on the a NY Times article by Mr. Simpson that appeared on April 21, 2018. (A link to the NYT article is provided in the LI piece.)

    Here is an excerpt from Simpson’s article that explains their next work around in the ongoing coup:

    “Put aside Russian collusion for a moment. Press pause on possible presidential obstruction of justice. Forget Stormy Daniels. The most significant recent development involving the president may be that the special counsel, Robert Mueller, has subpoenaed Trump Organization business records as part of his inquiry into Russian interference in the presidential election.
    Those documents — and records recently seized by the F.B.I. from the president’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen — might answer a question raised by the president’s critics: Have certain real estate investors used Trump-branded properties to launder the proceeds of criminal activity around the world? ”

    First off, after all the chicanery and probably CRIMES that have been revealed about Mr Simpson and GPS including the fact that they are attempting to remove a duly elected PRESIDENT, how is it that this scumbag is still out there writing propaganda hit pieces for the Times?? Isn’t there some way he can be placed under house arrest? Seriously.

    Second- I completely understand the need for patience on every level. Many people on this blog have pointed out excellent reasons why things are happening at the pace that they are going. All of us who support our President are worried, concerned and anxious about him and the future of our great Republic.

    That being said, I truly believe that the longer this Witch Hunt is allowed to go on, the worse it is for our side. Every day the Swamp Devils are at it again. Every day it’s another story in the MSM for the great uninformed masses about how corrupt Trump is. *** Never forget that the people who read this blog are in the vast MINORITY when it comes to information and intel.

    The Dems and their cronies never quit attacking. The Repubs for the most part don’t even defend themselves.

    God bless President Trump, his family and our Republic because I have never in my lifetime seen such a vicious, never ending attack on all that we hold dear.

        Thank you for the verses from Paul’s letters.

        So many clergy — especially theologically conservative clergy — forget the last ones from 1 Timothy 2:1-5. Yes, we should pray for those in authority over us, as difficult as it is.

        I read time and time again on Reformed (Calvinist-oriented) sites that we should not pray for those in government. Reformed clergy are supposed to be the people who best understand Scripture in its truest sense. Allegedly. They missed the boat on this one.

        But, yes, St Paul wrote the right thing, even though it is difficult to accept. Think to the past and what could have been the present. It’s hard to pray for those in authority when one disagrees with them (e.g. Nancy Pelosi and DiFi).

        Clarification: this comment has nothing to do with President Trump. MAGA! May God continue to bless him.

    That’s ZERO…at least with this DOJ

    President Trump: fire rosenstein and sessions immediately and appoint someone who will actually DO SOMETHING and GET THE JOB DONE.

    it’s either that or face this insanity of the assault on the President, America First, The American Taxpayer, Freedom and the Constitution for the duration…

    what’s the worst that could happen as a result? Surely no worse than what we’ve had to endure since NOV 9, 2016…Better to clarify and take care of this DYSFUNCTION. NOW.
