Court Filing Reveals Numerous Comey Memos Including Investigative Meetings, Sources, Methods and Contacts…

A late day submission to DC Circuit Court in a FOIA case previously discussed, reveals the content of Mueller’s probe & use of multiple, previously unknown, James Comey memos. Additionally, within the filing we discover how Comey documented multiple events, meetings and information surrounding the FBI investigation of Donald Trump.

The documents surface as part of the FOIA case [Backstory Here] where DC Court Judge James E. Boasberg -an Obama appointee and also a FISA judge- asked the FBI to file an opinion about the release of Comey memos to the public.  There are two issues: (1) can the memos be released? and (2) can prior sealed FBI filings, arguing to keep the memos hidden, be released?

In a very revealing filing last night (full pdf below) the lead FBI investigator for the Mueller special counsel, David W. Archey, informs the court that with the ending of the special counsel some of the memo material can be released, such as their existence; however, Archey also states much of the memo content and sealed background material from the FBI must continue to remain sealed and redacted.

The FBI will file a further declaration on or before April 15, 2019, to explain why the remaining redactions to the Third Archey Declaration continue to be necessary. (page 2)

Within the filing we discover the lead FBI agent was David W. Archey (background here). Archey was selected by Robert Mueller when the special counsel took over the counterintelligence investigation from Special Agent Peter Strzok. According to ABC: “Agent David Archey is described by colleagues as a utility man of sorts within the FBI”. However, until now his exact role was not known.

(Source pdf)

Following the conclusion of the Mueller probe, David Archey was moved.  Effective March 8, 2019, Archey became head of the Richmond, VA, FBI field office. (link) Due to the corrupt nature of the special counsel, this is somewhat concerning. I digress…

The first three pages of the filing consist of David Archey explaining to the court that some of the material can be released, but other material must be withheld.  He then goes on to reference two prior sealed attachments outlined as “Exhibit A” and “Exhibit B”.

“Exhibit A” is a filing from the FBI on January 31st, 2018, essentially supporting an earlier “in camera ex parte declaration” requesting continuance of a prior court order to keep the background material sealed from public view.  In essence, the FBI didn’t want the public to know what was/is contained within the Comey memos (including the scale thereof).

“Exhibit B” is where the action is.

This is the original declaration outlining to the court on October 13th, 2017, why the Comey memos must be sealed.  It is inside this exhibit where we discover there are many more memos than previously understood, and the content of those memos is far more exhaustive because James Comey documented the FBI investigation.

In essence Comey created these memos to cover his ass. (pg 13):

FBI Agent Archey then goes on to explain what is inside the memos: It is in this section where we discover that Comey made notes of his meetings and conversations with investigators.

Along with writing notes of the meetings and conversations, apparently Comey also made notes of the sources and methods associated with the investigation.  Why would Comey generate classified information in these notes (sources and methods) unless he was just covering his ass because he knew the investigation itself was a risk…

The content of the memos seems rather exhaustive; it appears Comey is keeping a diary for use in the event this operation went sideways. (page #14, exhibit B)

All of those investigative elements would likely be contained in official FBI files and notes by the investigative agents.  There is no need for a contemporaneous personal account of meeting content unless Comey was constructing memos for his own protection. These memos appear to be motivated by the same mindset that caused Susan Rice to generate her email to self on inauguration day.

In the next section FBI Agent David Archey explains the scale of the memos.  There are obviously far more than previously discussed or disclosed publicly.  Additionally, look carefully at the way the second part is worded.

Archey is saying Comey’s written recollections should be withheld because it might affect the testimony of people familiar with the “memorialized conversations”. (page #15, Exhibit B)

 

This is an October 2017 filing, Comey was fired May 9th.  FBI Agent Archey is outlining Trump as the target who might adjust his testimony.  Again, more evidence of the special counsel focus being motivated by the obstruction case they were hoping to build. [Reminder, Comey was still FBI director at the time these memos were written]

The next section gets to the heart of why the FBI wants to keep the Comey memos hidden and not released.

In this section Archey outlines how FBI Director James Comey wrote down who the sources were; what code-names were assigned; how those confidential sources engaged with FISA coverage initiated by the FBI; what foreign governments were assisting with their effort; and what the plans were for the investigation.

Again, why memorialize all of this classified information unless the memos were intended as CYA protection for himself?

There’s also really good news in here.  Think about it.  Now we know the entire anti-Trump operation is memorialized in writing.  There is documentary evidence of the entire operation within these memos.  We did not know that before this moment.

Therefore, it looks like President Trump can add the Comey Memos to the pre-existing declassification list.  At any time, President Trump now has a set of documents he knows to exist that his office can ask to be released.  The investigation is over.

If the FBI was running an honest and genuine investigation; what do they have to fear from the release of the Comey Memos now that the investigation is over.

    I view this as good news. Shows how into the weeds Comey was on details and snagging and dragging classified info into his memos to make them even more protected (the guy likes hiding behind things figuratively, too). It also shows the conniving mind of Comey when juxtaposed with his public utterances. So willing to slander the President on national tv or engineer a special counsel to oust the President–certainly undercut his executive function to the detriment of the entire NATION–but oh so careful to protect lesser entities and sources and methods.

    Wondering if Trump will end up bankrupting a lot of people in the civil courts for the next decade. Imagine the discovery opportunities there…

        The question is, how much of the information in the memos is real or fake? How much of it is Comey bloviating, constructing tales out of cobwebs, etc. etc? Was the guy so stupid TO PUT DOWN ON PAPER HIS SOURCES AND METHODS instead of committing them to memory? Or did he think that once Trump was out he could use them to write his billion dollar book ‘How I got Trump?’ And he was in charge of the FBI?

        Just a reminder here, Comey, during Congressional testimony, went out of his way to mention that he had often taken copious notes for his own files. A way, as he put it, to help his recollection of events. Heard him several times state this. So the amount of notes does not surprise. It’s the detail of all the events and people involved, including the help from foreign nations.

        Gray’s Economy, 8 Dec 2018: “…Ex-FBI chief James Comey was supposed to give testimony before a House panel at Friday’s closed-door session. Unfortunately he gave nothing but 245 “I don’t recall.” “I can’t remembers.”

        Comey last week was in court in an attempt to get this testimony in open House session, which would have limited the time panel members could ask questions and also curtail being questioned on classified matters.

        So a compromise was struck that a transcript would be released soon after the testimony concluded. This document will be worthless since Comey could not recall the answers to most questions and if he did remember he was advised by a Justice Department lawyer not to answer the question on advice of counsel….”

              President Barack Obama signed a bill into law on Thursday guaranteeing himself Secret Service protection for the rest of his life.
              White House press secretary Jay Carney said Obama signed the “Former Presidents Protection Act of 2012” on Thursday. The law affects Obama, former President George W. Bush and future presidents, who under current law would only be protected for 10 years after leaving office.
              According to the press secretary’s office, the law “restores lifetime Secret Service protection of former Presidents who did not serve as President prior to January 1, 1997, and their spouses; and provides for protection of all children of former Presidents until they become 16 years of age.”
              Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy introduced the bill in the House.

      It’s pleasing to expose Comey’s culpability but even if the terribly incriminating information is revealed, “Bondo Bar” (SD’s term for him as a fixer; see 1/15/19 article) is not likely to allow the DOJ to publicly and grossly disgrace the FBI via a prosecution of Comey. Moreover, where the evidence could lead is a forbidden destination.

      Comey may be so dirty he has become untouchable by the judicial system.

      At best, the President has more leverage, though it may be unusable in the public sector because both the judge and Barr can keep the evil genie in the bottle.

If he covers up, half the population will lose confidence in the DOJ immediately and that number will only grow as times goes on.

          This is a good thing. I believe Barr is an honorable man, but it’s better to know he has almost no other way to play his hand. Moreover, if he tries to coverup, DJT will tear him to pieces along with the rest of the miscreants.

    I can’t believe the Dems are being so stupid as to demand the release of ALL of the information Barr must now have. Schiff/Nadler/Cummings stand a good chance of going to jail as co-conspirators. Being members of Congress won’t protect them from that charge. Mr. President, please do one of two things: [in my order of preference] 1) appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the DoJ/FBI/IC and the FISC; and/or, 2) declassify the entire investigation and order Barr to protect nothing and no one.

      I guess I am an outlier here.

      I don’t think personally handwritten notes (as opposed to copies of two way text conversation or official memos written and sent to others) should ever be admissible as evidence. It’s 2019! Video taping has been available for 35+ years.

      Form 302s must be outlawed and replaced by mandatory full length, unedited video/audio recordings.

      In my father’s day, he was required to use a “Dictaphone” to record depositions from claimants or witnesses. The reason was that the device created a vinyl recording that could not be altered in any way. That same concept ought to be used for video taping that is going to be used as evidence.

      This case ought to be classroom material for why handwritten notes from human memory is unreliable as absolute proof of events, spoken words, actions, etc. I don’t care how accurate Comeys notes may be. We already know he’s a proven liar. Why on Earth would anyone take his personal diary-type notes at face value?.

      People lie. People forget. People bring bias filters to everything they see and hear. When men’s or women’s reputations, personal freedom, or their very lives are at stake, I do not believe that relying on evidence, as mentally conjured by fallible or nefariously motivated humans should ever be trusted. Only accept Unaltered video with audio, or accept nothing.

Well, to use it as proof one day. Found to be false, it’s damning.

    Therefore, it looks like President Trump can add the Comey Memos to the pre-existing declassification list. At any time, President Trump now has a set of documents he knows to exist that his office can ask to be released. The investigation is over.

    If the FBI was running an honest and genuine investigation; what do they have to fear from the release of the Comey Memos now that the investigation is over.”

    Paragraph (12) above refers to foreign governments and officials involved in this massive fraud to prevent Trump’s election and the coup to oust him. As many of us have stated numerous times, the British, Australian and other governments played a direct role in this attempt to overturn an American presidential election and to oust a sitting and duly-elected president. Such foreign action IS a major criminal conspiracy by our traitorous “allies” and grounds to declare those governments hostile to the United States and “persona non grata.” Their diplomats and citizens should be expelled from the United States and nobody holding a passport from ANY countries conspiring with American traitors in this coup should be granted entrance into the USA.

    It is no wonder these foreign “ally” governments have “begged” President Trump NOT to declassify this evidence. THEY WERE, AND STILL ARE, KNEE-DEEP IN TRYING TO OVERTHROW OUR ELECTED PRESIDENT.

    Remember, there was an organized effort in the UK to have the British Parliament BAN DONALD TRUMP FROM EVER VISITING THE UK. The British government can NEVER be trusted to act in good faith toward our President Trump or toward our voting citizens.

    What did Comey think was going to become of these memos?

    It really seems they small group was banking on an obstruction charge (or smooth hand off for impeachment) to make it all just go away.

    But is it *that* hard to figure out that Trump just might bring in a real, non-recused AG? Were they being too cute by half, convincing themselves they’d created the perfect catch-22? (I.e., If Trump let RR and Bob Mueller finish the caper on their own, voila, obstruction; if he fired one of them to try to stop the outrageous debacle — voila, obstruction!

    So, how then was Trump able finally to fire sessions and put in Barr, who would be able to nix the obstruction charge without detonating the “obstruction” bomb?? How did that escape the small group’s plan?

    I’m starting to think the 2018 midterm may have been the most consequential election that most of the country will never realize. I had thought that, whatever the 2018 outcome, we had a safe buffer in the Senate because it takes 2/3 to impeach (I never thought the dems would get enough republicans, even if they took both chambers). But if Trump didn’t keep enough votes to confirm a new AG (and evince enough political support among the republican base to keep the R side of the swamp from going the way of McCain/Flake), I think the RR/Mueller report — under Sessions or a politically weak acting AG — may have been packaged and rolled out with enough steam to eventually pull enough impeachment votes from the Senate. I think that was plan A — and not a pipe dream, I think that’s what they’ve been actively gunning for, and what we’re in now is their nightmare Plan B. Because I can’t imagine it’s a welcome event for all those Comey memos to surface after a conclusion of No Obstruction from the AG. Under Plan A (if I’m understanding it all correctly), they’d evidence against Trump, whether public or not. Now they’re a detailed, self-serving opus of a tattletale co-conspirator. Insurance policy, indeed.

    They always knew obstruction would be the whole ballgame, and hoped Trump would give them more fodder. Now I guess it’s a race, and an all-out propaganda war, to get to 2020 …

      Trump took them by surprise while they were still hungover by their House win.

      They weren’t AT ALL expecting Session’s departure the day after the election.

      Politically, they could not mount an effective counterattack because Sessions technically resigned. Also according to John Dowd’s podcast interview with Byron York:

      On May 17, 2017
      Don McGahn burst into a meeting at the White House that Sessions was attending to announce that Rod Rosenstein had just appointed Robert Mueller as Special Counsel.
      Reportedly AG Sessions was horrified, embarrassed and immediately offered his resignation.
      Trump clearly didn’t accept it

      Point is if the SC tried to push the claim that Trump was “obstructing” by “firing” Sessions’
      Sessions most likely would have denied it.

      HOWEVER
      I fully expect this WILL be claimed to be “evidence” of Trump’s obstruction in Mueller’s report NOW.

    COMEY TIED TO CLINTONS’ MONEY – brief history.
    Posted by staff2 | May 17, 2017 | Latest News | 305

    “(By AngryPatriot) Everyone was shocked when former President Barack Obama appointed the nominal “Republican” James Comey as director of the FBI. However, new evidence indicates that Comey was only appointed because he was implicated in the Clintons’ corruption.

    Former FBI Director James Comey had numerous ties to the corrupt Clinton political machine, and he still does. One connection is his brother, Peter. Peter Comey is an executive at DLA Piper, the law firm responsible for filing the Clinton Foundation’s taxes. James Comey holds the mortgage for his brother’s mansion, tying a direct financial connection between Comey and the Clinton Foundation while he was investigating Hillary. (via Big League Politics)

    James Comey was appointed by Obama because he was a political insider with many dark connections to the Democrats. Obama trusted Comey not to target the establishment he was a part of.

    The former president’s hunch was ultimately proven correct, as James Comey allowed numerous Democrat crimes to go unpunished during his three-year term leading the FBI.

    James Comey has been connected to the Clinton criminal network for decades. In 1996, James Comey acted as the deputy special counsel for the Senate committee investigating the Whitewater scandal. The Senate was investigating shady real-estate loans authorized while Bill Clinton was governor of Arkansas.”

    No way Comey walks away/TRUTH WILL COME OUT.
    Comey is inextricably tied the the CORRUPT CROOKED CLINTONS.

      And…… mentioned before numerous times.

      Peter is the clean up man, the fixer, the adjuster.
      The reasoning behind all these statements is this.

      There is only ONE picture of Peter that can be found
      on the internet. ONE. From about 15 + years ago.

      Long experience at this. The ones running the show
      or cleaning up after those that do never are in the paper.
      Seen in the news. Photographed. Mentioned at public
      events. They might attend seminars, but sit in the back,
      in the shadows.

      Peter and James have had this working relationship
      a long time. One covers for the other. They both
      operate this way because they know that they can
      blackmail each other, but never do. Too much money
      involved in the deal. I think that it goes back to childhood,
      and Peter and James’ story about being held captive.

      Look into some of the fall out that happened to people
      in their town after the incident. Some lives were destroyed.

    Say that you were going to rob a bank, but first you wrote a memo to yourself in which you say that you were really just initiating a loan. Then you get caught. Now you point to the memo and say it was all a misunderstanding because your memo “proves” that it was really just a loan.

    My God. How does someone as stupid as Comey get to be director of the FBI. If Barr let’s this nonsense succeed, then every criminal should start writing CYA memos furiously. Call it the Comey defense.

      Tom A:

      Just re-read the linked article “Comey tied to Clinton Money”.

      His helping Hillary cover up for the Whitewater malfeasance was
      precisely similar to what you outlined initially. Always wondered
      back then why the investigation went so far off track from what
      initially happened. How it turned into a bed time story. How the
      part that actually mattered in the scheme of things never saw
      the light of day.

      Read Susan Olson’s book “Partners in Power” about Bill and
      Hillary. What is outlined in it about Whitewater is that the Clintons
      were basically selling swamp land to unsuspecting suckers.
      Real estate investment swindle. Moms and pops losing their
      life savings in retirement properties that weren’t built.

      THAT was what should have been outlined for public consumption
      about Whitewater. The media and congress said that what went
      on was far too complicated to fully outline. The simple part of it was
      that innocent people were swindled and lost everything in the deal.

      I think that that is not too hard a concept for the public to wrap their
      minds around. But it was never mentioned. Thanks Comey. I think
      Starr might be “thanked”, also. By never simplifying the crimes enough
      to allow people to be outraged about what the true outrage was in the
      matter.

  25. Paydirt! Comey’s “plausible deniability” cover is blown. The Comey memos belie the persona Comey made for himself as an aloof detached Director that wasn’t knowledgeable on daily operational activities.

    Comey tried to emulate Obama’s position of “I read about it in the media like everyone else,” with his statements such as “I didn’t know Huma was married to Weiner,” And “the staff used some fancy technology to identify all the duplicated emails on that Weiner fella’s laptop, so FBI staff only had to review 3,500 new emails.”

    Also, Comey’s Get Out of Jail Free card likely contains any instruction from, and reporting to, DOJ and WH, which could flesh out Page/Strzok’s texts about “WH is running everything.”

    Q: What did Obama know and when did he know it?
    A: Just look in Comey’s Case Diary!

These would give Nadler, the Dems, and he media plenty to spin for the next two years. And lastly, it would provide the approved script for all other witnesses to follow to get their story straight in testimony.
