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.

      Very. I think you are misreading this. Comey created these memos to insulate himself from the wrongdoings of the investigators. He was documenting everything the investigators were doing in case the investigation went pear-shaped and the investigators got in trouble so they couldn’t scapegoat him and drag him down with them. So these memos might contain evidence of corruption or wrongdoing on the part of the investigators.

      Note that on page 13 of this document, the point is made that Comey testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee as a “private citizen” — obviously and brazenly trying to create the same lame distinction that Comey himself asserted. That while his contemporaneous notes/memos are the professional firsthand judgment of the FBI director and should be regarded as factual and truthful, on the other hand, the words of “citizen” Comey are merely the “aw shucks” musings of Joe Shmoe citizen — a citizen who suddenly can’t remember much of anything specific, but has distinct personal impressions and anecdotes about all sorts of things — “best as he can recall” — to help the public get the picture.

      And while we’re at it, worth remembering that evidently it was deemed perfectly fine and appropriate for “citizen Comey” to pen a memoir and shoot his mouth off on talk show tour — all covering the events and timeline that were subject of an ongoing investigation, and while “Director Comey’s” “factual” words on the topic were being kept under seal. Except for those parts of his contemporaneous writings that “citizen Comey” himself deemed helpful to to leek in order to prompt a special counsel investigation in which all of his material would be a central predicate. Have we got all that?

    Did Mr. Comey give a reason for putting the salacious dossier into the PDB? Was that ‘memorialized’? Sounds like he was writing a book. His meetings with Obama might not have details, but the timing would explain everything. I recall Mr. Obama wanted to know everything from the “By the Book” memo. Just how much did Obama know and when did he know it?

          Beginning to sound like Comey had no control over McCabe and Strzok and was looking over his shoulder for the knife. We know Strzok was Brennan’s man at the FBI, that McCabe and Strzok already had an established relationship before Priestap was brought in to be Strzok’s manager, positioned between McCabe and Strzok. Priestap apparently sniffed out a rat pretty early on (real agent who was trained and can shoot, remember? Didn’t just fall off the turnip wagon). Perhaps Comey smelled the same rat, sensing he was being set up as the fall guy should it all go bad. Which now makes me wonder: was Priestap also brought in to DC from NY to be a patsy?

          That doesn’t make Comey is a good guy. He’s not. One thing to remember is that the totalitarian left is not monolithic. There are factions that break along ideological and/or operational lines, and their infighting can be quite ruthless (study the Russian revolution and its aftermath. Trotsky killed over ideology, etc.) Or consider the unholy alliance between the hard left and muslim jihadists, a marriage of convenience which will last only until Christianity, Judaism, and the West are destroyed, setting up the final death match between them for total global domination.

          Names of foreign agents and governments should be interesting. Cheerio, pip pip, good show, wot?

To which Comey replied something to the effect of “Maybe if they were a better managed administration we wouldn’t have gotten away with it.” Or something along those lines. Taking a clear dig at the president and his teams lack of organization. Dip $hit couldn’t help himself. But I’m happy he blabbed. That comment tells you he was in it up to his eye balls.

            There is also the possibility Comey didn’t know why he was documenting it so profusely, that he felt compelled to, but didn’t consciously know why.

    History teaches two lessons: that attempts to turn back the clock to better days will fail, and that attempts to keep the status quo will fail.

    Life is always changing: you can change it for the better, but that definition of “better” will not be the same as one’s memory of “better days.”

    The bureaucracy of the United States is here to stay, and it will only become worse, until there is a an actual revolution against it. Calls for smaller government have become laughable, and the bureaucracy easily laughs at such calls, because they know that – short of a revolution – reducing their numbers will not happen.

    The result of a constantly increasing government bureaucracy is before our eyes in this attempted coup d’etat: arrogance, contempt, corruption, and immunity from consequences.

    Richard Nixon 50 years ago discovered that getting the bureaucracy to implement his policies was difficult to impossible. Ronald Reagan discovered that he was unable actually to cut the size of government, and was only able to slow the rate of its growth.

    President Trump, unfortunately, does not have the support from cowardly Republicans to start the necessary revolution against the 2.6 million federal bureaucrats , most of whom – one can easily imagine – do not want to hear anything about smaller government, and who are mostly DEMS. Consider the outcry in the MSM, if such a revolution were started: one can hear the cries from the MSM of “the destruction of America” and “the attack on democracy” etc.

    In fact, FREEDOM from micro-managing bureaucrats and a HUGE reduction in government debt and spending would be the result.

    Most Americans – sadly – do not realize how much they are restricted, how much they are taxed, or how much America is spiritually diminished by such a bureaucratic apparatus interfering daily and deeply in our lives. Perhaps this coup attempt will awaken them, but given the way it remains unknown among most of our fellows, I am skeptical.

          “…all real Americans are by definition optimists …”

          The percentage of the voting population who are actually Americans at heart is getting smaller by the month, by the year.

          As demonstrated by the last several elections, the struggle of the 50-50 split has a center count of 7-8% that may fall either way. Unfortunately that very small center demographic is what determines every national election and lot of regional elections.

          The votes of those who are not Americans at heart count just as much as those who are. Sometimes those votes count more; it depends on who’s registering the voters and counting the votes.

            I don’t trust that 50-50 split. It is too “even Steven” to suit me. I mean what are the odds?

            50-50’s indicate an effort by one party to “eke out” a win over the other. In other words, they cheat by only enough votes needed to win.

            That is why we rarely see a landslide result, because *winners* don’t need to cheat that hard. So they stop at 51-49, and they call it a day.

            Even if the real vote tally is somewhere near 60-40, the losers need only cheat enough to make them win by a nose.

            There always seems to be enough votes to score the win, but rarely too few to trigger a recount. And the Enemedia are all too happy to *cover* for this rampant election fraud by creating the fake polls necessary to match a desired outcome.

            We saw it in 2016, with Hellary winning by a landslide in all their faked polls. Of course, she did not.

            Yet, the Enemedia would now have us believe that President Trump’s approval rating hovers at 49-50 percent? I’m not buying it, but I do believe the fix is in, if we fail to correct rampant election fraud prior to 2020.

    Help me here, If the Comey memos contained classified information and he kept them for himself is that not a crime in itself? Is it legal to keep classified information in a “diary”? I either missed or it doesn’t say where the memos were stored.

    Like

    • Newhere says:

      Comey’s memos would be protected on 2 (possibly 3) separate grounds: to the extent they contained classified information it would be illegal to leak it; and once the special counsel swept the memos into the investigatory record it would be illegal to leak, as well.

      When he first leaked them to the NYT, Comey tried to say he was allowed to publish them because they were his “personal diaries” so it wasn’t a “leak.” No one but the hacks believed that. Of course they were drafted in his capacity as director and were government documents. Not long after, at least some parts of the memos also were deemed classified. So yes, there should have been accountability for that. Add it to the list.

      Once they became investigatory records thanks to Mueller, there was then a separate basis for a court to seal them. That’s what the FOIA targets, and is now being revisited since the investigation is over. Classified information would still be redacted.

      Last, I believe notes of discussions between the president and his FBI director also would have been subject to executive privilege — a privilege controlled ultimately by the president — which can be overruled by a court, but which Comey probably should have been compelled to honor in the first instance.

      So, yes, Comey mishandled the memos in several respects in violation of different laws/regulations. Keeping and publicizing classified information indeed is a serious crime, at least when people without power do it.

    Been reading the new Diane West book about the red threads in the lives of so many of the scheme team. This bit concerns Comey’s self righteousness.

    I had not realized the significance in the fraud of calling Niebuhr a ‘theologian’. For a long time I have watched people take upon themselves the title ‘ethicist’ so that they can twist the public into accepting things that are revolting. Such as changing the definition of cloning from the act of transferring DNA to the act of giving birth to a being whose DNA was transferred. But then how else are we ever going to accept harvesting women’s eggs so that we can clone embryonic stem cells that will be used to grow organs?

    Niebuhr becoming a ‘theologian’ is even more dishonest. He was basically a twister of God’s Word to justify the atrocities of Marxism. Any follower of Niebuhr is a Marxist, and will do anything necessary to achieve those ends. And they will justify and even take part in the atrocities because that is how God’s greater good will be achieved.

    That is what Comey passes off as his religious ethics. Such a man can only be self righteous if he is actively working to achieve those Marxist ‘higher ends’.

      Yes, so, so, so many frauds. Getting to that marxist heart so its vampiric (by stealth of night) qualities can be seen by everyone and identified by all, is essential — one of the most important outcomes of the current investigations. One and only one purpose. Driving a stake in its evil, insidious heart.

      Marxism must be vanquished in our country if Constitutional Republicanism (along with the differences within, and only within) can thrive. America is the only real opposition to all the varieties of authoritarianism and totalitarianism.

      In my reading of Historical Reality one of the most necessary corrections within our Republic is to restore the meaning of “liberal” — “freedom-loving” — and to expunge all the marxist, insidious redefintions of freedom into “social justice” and “equality.”

      If we did so, in my (unfortunately minority) view we would restore individual effort, every protection for entrepreneurialism, search for truths, commitment to the scientific method, limits to empire building in every area, and do forth and so on, including all the protections of the Bill of Rights. All of these we would conserve.

      “Liberty and justice for all.” Not “equality and social justice for all” – according to the current Dear Leader’s definition.

    I have seen no one ask “Why were foreign intelligence sources and foreign intelligence agencies used to gather info on Donald Trump?”

    Donald Trump is unabashedly American, and has been for the past 35 years. No one is asking the question “At what point did you think Donald Trump WILLINGLY wanted to work FOR foreign powers AGAINST the United States?”

    This entire scandal is simply ludicrous. If the FBI had any semblance whatsoever of objectivity, they would have gone to Trump and said “You have some really suspicious characters around you who may not have the best interest of the United States in mind.” Instead, it is like just out of the blue the FBI said “Hey, this guy who is a self-made millionaire and is unabashedly American is a threat to the United States. We have to run a counter-intelligence operation on him to nail him.”

    As Sundance has noted, the originating EC from Brennan has to be declassified. You don’t go from being a respected businessman with a world-wide name brand to suspected traitor earning FISA warrant surveillance in a presidential election AND AS PRESIDENT without letting the world know why.

    Just thinking out loud here.. Perhaps President Trump (& Sekulow, Dowd, Guiliani, etc) DID in fact have tapes of all Trump/Comey meetings. In having these tapes, President Trump and his counsel would be able to cross examine all of the questions that were asked by the Special Counsel, and be able to sidestep any traps that were laid by the Special Counsel in their questioning.

    “Archey is saying Comey’s written recollections should be withheld because it might affect the testimony of people familiar with the “memorialized conversations”

    Comey didn’t want to the entirety of his memos to be release so that Trump wouldn’t be able to alter his testimony. A trap of sorts. Meanwhile, President Trump and his counsel perhaps laid a trap of their own on Comey in having tapes of all POTUS/COMEY conversations.

    (Which also leads me to believe that perhaps POTUS is keeping tapes of Every. Single. Interaction. he has, whether official or unofficial.)

    How many people “convicted” with use of these “sources” would challenge their conviction if the whole truth came out?

    Also, what troubles me most about Comey’s Memos (there’s a lot that troubles me) is the fact the SC wanted to hide the information to give the illusion that the President of the United States would alter his testimony to parallel Comey’s view; however, I find it very concerning that an FBI Director’s word is given more “value” over the Presidents. It’s still a he said, she said unless there’s audio recordings.

    This whole fiasco gives me great concern about our law enforcement agencies. I’ve worked around many officers and have seen crime scenes even before them, I know 95%+ are doing the job because they believe their work provides security for the community as a whole and are honest in their investigations. What concerns me is that the corrupt portion of law enforcement can feed off the honesty and hard work of the 95%+ and ruin the lives of anyone, anywhere as they choose.

    The political nature of how the upper tier of law enforcement officials are appointed, elected in the Sheriff’s Office for the most part, leads itself to the abuse of power for political gain. Or hide crimes at will if that’s beneficial to someone “special”.

    “In essence Comey created these memos to cover his ass.. . .”

    According to the old saying “Hindsight is easy,” but in this saga it’s necessary. This is a factional war (still raging) of such stakes and scope its actual war equivalent is WWII.

    As I noted early on, attempting a coup under The Color Of Law is rather difficult to pull off. In other words, there’s a world of difference between Fantasy Stalinists and real ones. The most important being that the latter either never created risky records in real-time and could please that at will when the narrative was fixed.

    Common sense dictates, given his central role, Comey created these classified memos as both self-protection and in furtherance of the conspiracy to destroy the President. Just think about the difference between a private dairy and classified “work product” memos in terms of who is aware of their existence.

    Now, with hindsight, the glaringly obvious CYA by Comey was the leak of the existence of his memos to the NYT. A shot across the bow to the conspirators hoping he and a few FBI underlings would take one for the team. The purportedly damaging revelations about the President were mere cover. All parties, including the President, had an interest in leaving the number of memos and their scope indeterminate.

    Here’s Trump at the time:

    “When I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story,” he told NBC News in an interview that aired Thursday.

    https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/333081-trump-warns-comey-better-hope-there-are-no-tapes-of-our-meeting

    One thing you can be sure of is that little, if anything, in furtherance of the conspiracy against him wasn’t known to Trump in real time. Demonstrated anytime you go back and look at his purportedly shoot from the hip messaging at the time, along with the other events/reporting.

    Like, for example, the President firing Comey the day before Chelsea Manning was scheduled for release from prison. Remember Obama’s out of the blue commutation announced three days before he left office, with the odd proviso that release was delayed for four months?

When reading and reconciling all of the vile acts and words, remember the Cross and be exceedingly glad for the empty tomb. He saved us, as well as Comey and his cronies. We just want to see them confess and repent of their sins so justice and mercy can be served.

            The fact that the FBI used an “unverifed” bogus document known as the Dossier in the FISA application on Carter Page tells you everything you need to know about the motivations of the FBI. Useful Idiots? More like shrewd conspirators in an attempted take-down of Trump.

        I had a conversation with my husband about the FBI etc .. being “ tricked “ by Brennan , DNC and others to pursue this investigation to take the heat off Hillary’s wrongdoings, the hate for Trump was so overwhelming and they pursued it like rabid dogs . There was no there there.They wanted soo desperately to make it true that they started to fabricate things that looked like there was some there there . Desperate measures for desperate people .

    The stench of the Banquet of Sedition spreads far and wide. All who inhale the intoxicating dream of power usurped become themselves most foul and corrupt.

    The cure is painful, but necessary for the body politic!

    So when does Trump begin declassifying and making public? After Barr releases the Mueller papers?

    More to the point: when does the Trump administration go jugular? When does the blood begin to flow in the DOJ/FBI/Clinton-Obama cabal?

    I’ve often wondered if the FBI was ordered to do what they did and was not happy about it. Having to call it “a matter” etc. The Strozk and Page texts have always struck me as an intentional effort by one or both of them to document what was going on. It certainly doesn’t explain everything and I’m not defending them. I’m only noting that it has always seemed like that to me.

      There was an underlying tone in the S/P texts that they were irritated by DOJs interjecting themselves where Stroke thought they should butt out

      Strozk, (who btw looks like what I imagine a Russian double agent would look like in a movie), and Page had their chances to come clean when they testified before congress. They did nothing but dig in. They were happy to do this dirty work. Don’t forget Pages text saying “we need to get POTUS/TRUMP charged as soon as possible”. Those aren’t the words of a person that is mad about having to investigate the president.

        Bill: Just remember Storzk was born in Iran and his lover Page’s mother was Iranian! Likely Muslims just like Brennan. What are the chances of this being happenchance?

      Good points above. More likely S/P were just giddy about their every move that they were taking to save America and loved sharing their James Bond exploits with each other.

    “At any time, President Trump now has a set of documents he knows to exist that his office can ask to be released. ”

    Everyone else in the Capitol makes demands. It is time for the WH to DEMAND, not ask.

    For an explanation of why Comey or any of them would take such chances, see Diana West’s new book The Red Thread, or google any of her recent interviews.

    Cardinal Comey dindu nothin and couldn’t ‘member nuthin when testifying. Let’s hope facts conflicting with his “notes to self” cause him to admit, “I probably would have gotten away with it in a less organized CTH investigation, a less organized administration.”

    David Archey needs to be drug out of his rat hole at the FBI. While his beady little eyes flicker in sunlight, a new rope of Red, White and Blue strands should be tied around his scrawny neck. It should be the last day and last sunshine bit of sunshine he is allowed to see.

    I guess I’m confused now how Comey’s memos cover his a**. If he outlined the entire scheme, including sources and methods, as well as operatives involved, how does that cover him?

    KEY DETAIL: Served “Weapons of Mass Destruction Division”

    SD this is a HUGE detail.

    The same people involved in the incorrect intelligence from the UK on WMDs in Iraq are parties to the story of dangling Papa et el…

    Archey is most likely protecting the remaining unknown details on how the IC community directly in cahoots with the UK convinced the world Iraq had significant quantities of WMDs.
