    Good point Mike, we wouldn’t have known any of this if she won. That’s actually something that requires some lengthy thought. Think of all the crap we know now, that we wouldn’t have known if she won. I never heard of a 302, cointel vs criminal, Brady, main justice vs reg doj, main fbi vs field offices, fara, all kinds of crap I never heard of a year ago…and now I feel like I’m an expert. Even though nothing is going to be done about it, your right…we learned a lot.

      I am a realist, not a cheerleader. I am also a student of history. So many people, much better, and braver than I, have sacrificed so much more than I, for this country. I may be wrong, but I don’t think these Comey/Mueller rats will win.

    So there is the Susan Rice memo to herself that retroactively documents the Jan 5 meeting with Obama…the “by the book” memo.

    Pgs. 29-36 Comeys testimony confirms this meeting, a subsequent briefing with the Gang of 8, and his ultimate briefing of the President with Brennan, Clapper, and Adm. Rogers at Trump Tower.
    It never occurred to me that this meeting was at Trump Tower. (I thought that they moved the transition to NJ after Adm. Rogers gave the President-Elect a heads up.)
    Did the President-Elect and Adm. Rogers turn the tables on the conspirators by meeting at TT, a building known to be under surveillance?

    Pg. 35, Also, Rep. Jordan asks Comey if he was concerned that his briefing of the salacious material could be perceived as an attempt to hold something over (ie. extort) the President. Comey acknowledges that he was concerned that the President could “interpret it as an effort to pull a J. Edgar Hoover on him”.

    Our President has this. Comey implicated the White House, the Gang of 8, Clapper, and ringleader Brennan with his testimony. Only to page 40 of 175?

      Wouldn’t it be wonderful is this tweet was referring to this TT meeting?

      Speaking of the tweet and recordings:

      Pg.99…Gowdy: …”It’s been publicly reported, but I’m going to give you a
      chance to respond to it, that one of the reasons you instructed Professor Richman to provide that memo to the media was to spur the appointment of special counsel. Is that correct or incorrect?
      Mr. Comey. Yes, so that — to pursue the tapes.
      Mr. Gowdy. Pardon me?
      Mr. Comey. To pursue the tapes that President Trump had tweeted at me about. I was worried the Department of Justice, as currently led, would not go after White House tapes and that a special counsel would.
      Mr. Gowdy. Okay. And you thought the appointment of special counsel on that fact pattern was important why?
      Mr. Comey. Because, given the way I’ve seen the leadership at the Department of Justice conduct itself in connection with my firing, I was deeply concerned that it would not — that
      leadership would not pursue the existence of tapes that would show the President and I speaking on February the 14th and reflect what was in my memo.

      Sounds to me like Comey’s plan was to get Mueller appointed to secure evidence of recorded conversations. Wonder how that’s working out for them.

        …”Mr. Gowdy. Did you really believe that there were tapes of that conversation, Director Comey?
        Mr. Comey. I didn’t know — first of all, it never entered my mind until the President tweeted that I better hope there aren’t tapes of our conversations. And, yes, honestly, it occurred to me there may be tapes. I’d heard Donald Trump liked to tape, and all of a sudden it occurred to me there may be tapes.
        That was the central problem with this episode; it was my word against his — “…

      …”Mr. Gowdy. When her name appeared in documents that could call into question the objectivity of the Department of Justice, did you consider calling for special counsel?
      Mr. Comey. Yes.
      Mr. Gowdy. Why didn’t you do so?
      Mr. Comey. Because I decided I’d seen no indication of interference on the part of the Attorney General, so no substance to any bias. And the perception-of-bias question was Mr. Gowdy. When her name appeared in documents that could call into question the objectivity of the Department of Justice, did you consider calling for special counsel?

    Can someone help me with the beginning of the Comey Testimony? Goodlatte tells him he is still under oath; Comey says he is NOT under oath; Goodlatte replies “Correct.”
    Here it is below. Under oath or not?

    And, Mr. Comey, do you understand that the questions you were
    asked at the beginning of the first day of interviews all still
    apply and that you are under oath?
    Mr. Comey. Yes, sir. This is not under oath, but I have an
    obligation to tell the truth.
    Chairman Goodlatte. Correct

    This is an interesting question. Would Rep. Ratcliffe ask this question if he didn’t have evidence of such a communication?
    Ratcliffe: “her communication” about their unsecured communications…
    Comey: I don’t remember her being asked about “that”…

    Pg.81-82
    Mr. Ratcliffe. Did you have any conversation with Secretary
    Clinton about her communication with President Obama about
    communicating with him on this unsecure, unclassified server?

    82
    Mr. Comey. I didn’t, and I don’t remember her being asked
    about that during the interview.

    Rep. Ratcliffe’s timeline:

    Pg.82

    …”Mr. Ratcliffe. Okay. So, again, to review the timeline:
    June 27th, tarmac meeting between Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton.
    June 28th, we have this exhibit reflecting the emails between
    Secretary Clinton and President Obama. You have requested
    reviewing them. You reviewed them. On June the 30th, your chief
    of staff edits out a reference to President Obama. You didn’t
    have any — you just testified you didn’t have any conversation
    with President Obama about it. Why wouldn’t investigators and
    prosecutors from the Department of Justice ask Hillary Clinton
    about this just a few days later?”…

    Regarding Comey’s home safe:
    Is your personal safe at home, was that a GSA-approved storage facility?
    Was it a sensitive compartmented information facility?

    Pg.90
    Comey:…”I’m not going to answer communications in connection with my interactions with my counsel. And so I can answer that in this respect: I sent Dan Richman images of one memo, the unclassified February 14th memo, for the purpose of him sharing it with a journalist”….

      Not stupid – arrogant. Just like Clinton believing the rules don’t apply to her, Comey and Obama think they are above them as well.

    Isn’t it odd that Comey was eager to give President Elect Donald Trump a breufing on the unverified dossier but was tight lipped about the Flynn interview and the fact that Trump was being invesugated?
