James Comey Under Investigation – John Huber Investigating Comey Memos – Declaration Release This Week…

Jumpin’ ju-ju bones, there’s big news in here.  Actual Bombshells! For real Tick Tocks and much much more….

Former acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker appeared on Fox News to discuss the replacement of Dan Coats with John Ratcliffe as head of the ODNI, and the current status of AG Bill Barr’s ongoing reviews into prior DOJ and FBI (mis)conduct.

Whitaker posits the placement of Ratcliffe as looking at the aggregate intelligence apparatus and seeing if there “are systemic issues and failures for how the investigations were kicked-off”; and the engagements with other countries (FBI and CIA).

Additionally Whitaker summarizes U.S. Attorney John Durham as focused on the origin of the intelligence operation against candidate Trump and “prosecuting anyone that needs to be prosecuted“.  [By the way, that seems to confirm Durham as an official “investigation”, not a “review”.]

Then comes the BOMBSHELL…. (@01:26 below) while seemingly not realizing what he just said, Whitaker outlines U.S. Attorney John Huber as reviewing “anything related to Comey’s memos and the like.”  Boom… There it is.

THAT finally explains why the DOJ is fighting the release of the David Archey declarations in the FOIA lawsuit by CNN.  [Listen carefully at 01:26 of the interview]


Until that obscure comment, likely a slip that not many would catch, there has been no valid explanation by the DOJ about any investigation of the Comey memos, which would also encompass the “Archey Declarations”.

If U.S. Attorney John Huber is indeed looking at those Comey memos, that would explain why the DOJ is fighting the release of the Archey Declarations in the DC Circuit Court with Judge James E Boasberg.  Now it makes sense.  That little obscure comment by Whitaker is a big effen’ deal.

Oddly, and, well, conspicuously, the DOJ has never said they were investigating the Comey Memos as an argument in their legal position in the FOIA case. That specific -albeit innocuous- statement by Whitaker (interview above) is the first indication therein.

It sounds like the DOJ is keeping that investigation of Comey’s Memo content hidden, but Whitaker just let it slip.

With that new information; and if it is a fact that U.S. Attorney John Huber is investigating James Comey; CTH will now reverse our position on the release of the Archey Declarations and support their non-release.

In our opinion the content of the diary by former FBI Director James Comey, as outlined in what has formally been called “The Comey Memos”, is devastating to the FBI.

How do we know? Because the DOJ/FBI is fighting like hell to keep even descriptions of the memo(s) content from becoming public.  Now it appears that diary is being reviewed by U.S. Attorney John Huber.

THAT MEANS…. FBI Director James Comey is under investigation.

BACKSTORY – In the background of what was The Mueller Investigation, there was a FOIA case where the FBI was fighting to stop the release of the Comey memos.

Within that courtroom fight Mueller’s lead FBI agent David Archey wrote a series of declarations to the court describing the content of the memos and arguing why they should be kept classified.

The FOIA fight shifted.

The plaintiff, CNN, argued for public release of the content of the FBI agent’s descriptions, now known as the “Archey Declarations”.

After a lengthy back-and-forth legal contest, on June 7th Judge James E Boasberg agreed to allow the FBI to keep the Comey memo content hidden, but instructed the DOJ/FBI to release the content of the Archey Declarations.

On July 5th, the U.S. Department of Justice -under Attorney General Bill Barr- while waiting until the last minute (28 days since court order), filed a motion [full pdf below] to block the release of the Archey Declarations, despite the June 7th judicial order.

On July 19th, CNN filed a motion against the FBI and DOJ to force the release of the Archey Declarations (full pdf below), and enforce the order.

On July 25th, the DOJ filed a response requesting more time to reply. The DOJ is currently asking for more time, a delay until August 2nd, to file a response to a supportive motion from CNN that would force the DOJ to release the “Archey Declarations” [detailed explanations of what’s inside the Comey Memos].

The DOJ wants these declarations hidden.  Now we know why.

Here’s the last motion from CNN which demands the DOJ and FBI to comply with the prior ruling of June 7th, (embed pdf belowcloud pdf link here):


The DOJ is requested more time, August 2nd, 2019, to respond to the CNN motion.

CNN wants the June 7th ruling enforced and the Archey Declarations, which describe the content of the Comey memos, released.

David Archey was the FBI lead agent on Robert Mueller’s team. Archey replaced Peter Strzok when Strzok was removed. Yes, Archey’s declarations might possibly describe material evidence the DOJ are using in ongoing matters. However, THIS IS IMPORTANT – the DOJ and FBI have never made that assertion in their court arguments.

Despite the original media FOIA lawsuit coming from CNN -vs- DOJ, there is no-one in the MSM covering this story. Here is the July 5th DOJ filing:


Here’s the background on the June 7th, 2019, ruling as we shared at the time:

Judge Boasberg was deciding what could be publicly released, meaning current redactions removed, based on two connected events: (#1) The content of the Comey Memos; and (#2) the declarations of lead FBI agent for Robert Mueller’s special counsel, David Archey, in describing those memos. CNN had filed a lawsuit to gain full access.

[Note: the descriptions of the Comey memos by FBI agent David Archey are known as the “Archey Declarations” – Read Here.]

For those who may not be aware, there are so many memos (dozens) when assembled they seem to make up an actual diary of moment-by-moment events, during the FBI investigation of Donald Trump, as documented by FBI Director James Comey.

♦ In the issue of the redactions within the Comey Memos, the judge doesn’t remove them. Some are ordered to be removed, some are approved to stay in place. The Comey memo aspect, and the redaction decision, is basically a splitting of the baby 50/50. It will be interesting, but meh, maybe not too much detail. – CNN ARTICLE

(Pdf Link)

The issues argued by the FBI lawyers to keep the Comey memos hidden surround sources and methods. The judge generally agreed to the potential for compromise, but also outlined several sections of redactions within the Comey memos where that argument doesn’t hold up. [The judge has read the fully unredacted memo content.]

♦ However, on the issue of the Archey Declarations there’s an opportunity for some very interesting information to surface. Here’s an example of currently existing redactions within the Archey Declarations:

And stunningly, yes, STUNNINGLY, Judge Boasberg ordered the Archey declarations to be fully released to the public WITHOUT REDACTIONS. See pages 34 and 35 of the ruling.

That means all those black boxes in the example above will be removed and CNN will be allowed the fully unredacted content of the declarations by FBI Agent David Archey.

CTH remained very interested.

The Comey Memos cut to the heart of the issues Special Counsel Robert Mueller said were outside his purview. The Comey Memos describe the FBI operation and intent during the 2016 election. The Archey Declarations describe the Comey Memos.

The content could be very revealing.

Now that we know U.S. Attorney John Huber is tasked with investigating the Comey Memos, it finally makes sense why the DOJ are fighting to keep the material hidden.

However….. HERE’S ANOTHER BOOM…..  Perhaps, just perhaps, this is part of the declassification material that will be released on Wednesday July 31st, per Joe diGenova.   If you look at the timeline and the court deadlines it makes sense.

Judge Boasberg ruled the Archey Declarations must be released.  The DOJ has requested additional responsive timing until August 2nd.  Perhaps either the unredacted Archey Declarations, or… jumpin ju-ju bones, dare I hope….  the actual unredacted Comey Memos might be what Bill Barr is about to release.

It’s likely Joe diGenova has no idea what the material is; however, perhaps this is what Joe diGenova’s DOJ and FBI sources are alluding to.  It all does make sense.

    Folks, I regret to suspect that we are making WAY too much of this offhanded comment by Whitaker. I’ll be not just surprised, but shocked, if Huber’s operation indicts a single person.

    • As appealing as that may be, dwpender, this would actually prevent criminal prosecution, because no juror could be found who though the accused might be innocent. (Never mind the obvious fact that they aren’t.)

      I am actually very, very confident that this does lead to many criminal indictments. But remember that these can only be generated by a Grand Jury, which operates in complete secrecy. Barr now has complete authority to compel cooperation and to release classified information to whom he pleases, and I think that’s mainly going to be (at least for now) “to a Grand Jury.” No one knows that a Grand Jury is convened, nor who they are considering, nor if they handed down an indictment until that indictment is unsealed.

      Frustrating though this obviously is to all of us, I believe that this is the way it must be, and that our expectations of criminal sentences will not be frustrated. There is simply too much blatant criminality coming out now.

Wisdom is justified of her children, and The Donald has shown himself to be very astute in his moves against the deep state, no doubt with divinely provided insight and protection that conjures images of Wiley coyote and the roadrunner.

        “.. would actually prevent criminal prosecution, because no juror could be found who though the accused might be innocent. (Never mind the obvious fact that they aren’t.)

        And this is why “The Law Is A nAss”. Why shouldn’t it be recognized that potential jurors have a right to know as much about the case as they are inclined to learn – not only what the almighty court decides they should be told? There is too much manipulation of juries – the selection should be random and 10 out 12 required to convict. Such a system would have its faults but would put an end to the lawyer shenanigans re. selecting malleable jurors and then leaving them little chance to know all the relevant evidence, however sourced.


    • GB Bari says:

      I can understand your doubt just as easily as accepting the possibility that Whitaker meant what he said.

      However consider this. Whitaker has “lived, ate, slept, and breathed this stuff” for many months… even a year or longer. And he is, by all indications, a professional. He knows what’s going on to a large degree because it is part of his daily world.

      To make a casual “offhanded comment” that has significant consequence like that is not how he or any of those in his world are trained and conditioned. Up to now Whitaker has not struck anyone that I’ve seen commenting here as being careless with his spoken words. To the contrary, he seems to be cautious and selective.

      That’s why one commenter earlier in this thread asked the possibility of this “offhanded remark” being deliberately and strategically planned to be spoken in this interview. And Sundance agreed having the same thought.

        I disagree. Whitaker has shown a loose tongue and a combative nature before.
        Have you forgotten the whole “Mr. Chairman, I see your 5 minutes is up!” answer he gave while under testimony?

        I’m not sure what to make of his recent comments. I thought Whitaker left the DOJ shortly after Barr came on board?!? Pretty sure he left the DOJ back in March. I’m not sure he would still be privy to any inside investigations and the deep dark goings on in the DOJ or with inside info on what Huber/Durham are doing at this point……

        I’m hopeful, but will not be surprised if this doesn’t pan out.


        • GB Bari says:

          Loose tongue? Combative nature?

          Please cite at least one clear example of his having a “loose tongue.”

          As to his “combative nature” (in the hearing to which your are referring) his remark that you quoted was IMHO entirely appropriate given the way he had been treated and the ridiculous manner in which the committee chairman was running the “inquisition”. I myself would have been equally as frustrated (probably even more so) with the blatant hard political/ideological bias against me by the DemoncRATs, and would have at some point made a sarcastic remark, only mine would probably not been half as witty as Whitaker’s. Whitaker’s stock went up 20% in my mind after that exquisitely timed and perfectly contextual remark.

      Why do you think that William Barr(!) returned as Attorney General, being only the second person in American history to do so? A man who loves the law, and who came from the CIA, and who is a smart, aggressive bulldog who could and did out-fox the Lawfare lawyers. This was no accident. Someone asked him to do it [again]. And he knew exactly what would be facing him. He accepted anyway.

    So interesting little timing here. Whitaker popped up late last week on some Fox show to comment on the Mueller testimony and related stuff. Thought to myself: “Huh.

I mean Whitaker’s been invisible until now, right?

    If you think about it… when (IF!) the DOJ starts disclosing stuff, they’ll need Media Faces to be the conduits of information and explanation. CNN and its panel of 387 Political Analysts ain’t gonna do it. Rachel Madcow ain’t gonna do it. Hannity on his own will test one’s patience. So, practically speaking, Barr may need/want some sort of “disclosure team” that sits on top of the overall facts-only DOJ/FBI Public Relations. Maybe?

In 2016, the Intelligence and Justice communities emerged from the control of a vicious and obsessed President – (and he seemed like a colorless [no pun …] person, but basically an okay guy) – and watched as his former staff launched an aggressive attack on his successor. Then they watched him survive the attack, playing them all like so many pawns in a chess game. A strong Attorney General known to all of them returned to his post. Everyone now knew that this was the moment they had long been waiting for.

    And the perpetrators are beginning to understand that this is the moment they had long feared. For all this time they’ve been camping on the beach, not looking out to sea. Now they are about to be overtaken by a giant orange tidal wave. And all those staffers who they had forced to commit crimes on their behalf, and the directors such as Adm. Rogers who were men and women of integrity, are surfing the leading edge of it.

      One major blockade running interference not releasing the docs and their declassification was Dan Coats – the holdover of the coup plotters. He is out ergo the flow can now start in earnest.

      Lastly – word has it that it was none other Dan Coats who wrote the anonymous op-ed last year in the NYT working inside the wire resisting. So yeah – it makes lot of sense.

      I hold off on Gina Haspel who was the CIA station chief in 2016 when all this went down so she has also a big motive to gum up the declassification.

      August is known as the ‘hot’ month and it will get really hot now as the congress critters are on vacation and the DOJ/Durham/Huber have to floor.
      No wonder Pelosi and Cummings are in Italy trying to stop co-operation with the 5Eyes members although as the Italian leader loudly stated that he is with president Trump. He gave a great speech putting Merkel, Macron and Juncker out to pasture.

      The declassification is now in progress to move forward all-the-while congress is on vacation!

      Brennan and Comey have already been indicted by the grand juries and I wouldn’t be surprised if they are the first ones being arrested.

      One more thing that appears strange: Both Hussein and Michelle both silently deleted and erased/cleansed their twitter and other social media accounts that had anything to do with HRC including messages sent by her. It appears these two know something big is dropping involving HRC.

      • But remember: “declassification is purposeful,” and Barr has been granted the authority not only to select what is to be declassified, but where to send it. I personally do not expect him to send much of it, if any, “to the general public.” Not until indictments have been sworn out and unsealed, and quite possibly not until trials have commenced. (This hypothesis is based on Court standards concerning pre-trial disclosures.) If the Grand Juries have seen indisputable information that no one in the public has yet seen, then it will be very difficult to say that they were biased. The authors who want to write New York Times® Best Sellers will simply have to wait a little while longer. 😀

        Right now there are enough known Federal investigations, all under Barr’s watchful eye, and enough private lawsuits, to ensure that “Payback Time™ Is Coming.” The grand conspiracy is unraveling, and it’s the people who work inside the Intelligence and Justice communities who are driving the bus. Judges have been given cases to try and rulings to make. Honest Admirals have been given digital proof of crimes and the ability to act against them – and honorably did so.

Now comes President Trump and you had better believe he’s coming, as that has been his MO his entire career which spans decades.

    When Whittaker appeared on news shows he knew what he was saying. These people are immersed in public speaking double talk. A US Attorney spends their whole lives being cagey and closed mouthed.

      TDS. Manifests itself in irrational, often self-destructive thoughts and actions. Terrible, terrible affliction.

      I think CNN thinks they know what’s in the memos, based on Comey’s self-indulgent book and interviews. But I don’t think they actually know what’s in ALL the memos. So they’re in for a big suprise, IMO. Comey’s not stupid enough to NOT CYA in advance of the whole operation (inevitably) going south. James B. Comey is loyal to James B. Comey… not the DOJ, not the FBI, not the Obama Administration, not John Brennan, etc. etc.

      ‘Course CNN et al will latch on to the 2 or 3 “incriminating” paragraphs vis a vis Trump interactions out of dozens and dozens of pages of motes. So we need indictments first and Comey Memos later. Indictments first would make it very difficult for the MSM to spin the memos after the fact.

    How are Connecticut or Utah Grand Juries possible where no aspects of the crime were committed there?DiGeneva keeps referring to them.


    DOJ Manual says DOJ attorney should not impanel grand juries in a district other than where the crime was committed. Are there exemptions to this rule.?
    Statutorily speaking the venue privilege only attaches to trials not grand juries.
    My research provides no further answers.

    If the Grand jury must be convened in DC maybe Durham is so strong that he can intimidate the grand jurors. He only needs 12 out of 23 grand jurors to indict. Jessie Liu may not have been strong enough to deal with DC grand jurors.

      Tangentially related… I was thinking about this the other day… The argument that the IC and the FBI and the Five Eyes and the FISC and the This and the That are indespensible(!) and Too Big To Fail(!)…

      A few years back Obama said of ISIS: “Not an existential threat. Don’t worry about it.“ At the time I thought “what a ridiculous and irresponsible thing to say!” Seemed very dismissive of a huge (global) problem. Ironically, Climate Change, as the Moonbats call it, IS a global existential threat. Who knew? Anyway.

      So let’s walk through a scenario here, put things into some perspective.

      Imagine a DEVASTATING terror attack on the U.S. What would that look like? Imagine 9/11 times 1000. Practical worst case: thermonuclear device detonated in a major metropolitan location. Say a large city… maybe even D.C. itself. Hundreds of thousands vaporized and horrifically incinerated… hundreds of thousands more killed and maimed for decades to come. Millions of square miles uninhabitable, etc. etc.

      Would The Republic survive? We’d go through some period of Martial Law, perhaps, and a massive cleanup and recovery over the course of decades. The World Economy would take a massive hit, of course. BUT I THINK THE REPUBLIC AS WE KNOW IT TODAY WOULD ULTIMATELY SURVIVE.

      Now, consider the Russian Collusion Hoax… imagine Russian Collusion Hoax times 1000. Unchecked, no boundaries, all ideology, no Civil Rights, no Liberty, and certainly no Justice For All. Third World Banana Republic Police State with a dose of MSM Kool-Aid to wash it down. Does The Republic survive?

      Me? Not so sure it does.

      Did I just say I’m more afraid of the FBI, DOJ, and CIA than I am of ISIS and Al Qaeda even in their haydays? I think I just did!

  29. B Woodward says:

    Let me get this straight. So Huber was appointed nearly 2 years ago as the “top federal prosecutor” who can bring charges in Spygate and the federal abuses, seek indictments, and get results for President Trump far more quickly than a second special counsel. Gregg Jarret stated this is a Rosenstein manipulation and machination in which he basically duped Sessions, who is naive and gullible, to select Obama-appointee Huber. Key Representatives in the House stated that when asked, none of the witnesses they interviewed stated that they had also been interviewed by Huber. We have heard nothing from Huber about prosecuting federal abuses. All those crooks are still running loose. And how many Trump supporters have been bankrupted and/or prosecuted by Mueller in this same time period?

    Then we learn from Representatives Jordan and Meadows that flaws in the Sessions-Rosenstein scheme to circumvent Congress’ calls for a special counsel. US Atty Huber can’t investigate his bosses (Rosenstein et al) and Obama.

    And then we’re told that Huber was assigned months ago by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate several controversies linked to Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. However, witnesses told Mark Meadows’ committee that they had to send their evidence to Huber THREE TIMES because Huber kept losing it. How convenient for the Clintons.

    Finally we heard from AG Barr that Huber never did anything! So Durham was stepping in to take over where Huber had done nothing..

    And now we’re supposed to believe that Huber is out there in Utah prosecuting the deep state affairs described in the Comey memos? Ha!

  31. Mr e-man says:

    If Barr is really a straight shooter and he appears to be one, he would be approaching this whole investigation very carefully. He has to know he is up against the swamp denizens and they are ruthless and fighting for their lives. Everything must be done by the book, be detailed, thorough, fair, and complete. The issue of not announcing investigations is part and parcel of that. If Whitaker let it slip, he violated those rules. I don’t think Barr put him up to that. However, it makes sense that the Archy memos are coming out this week and Whitaker was going for a couple of attaboys by indicating what we will all know in a couple of days. Just an advance notice.

    But the overall timing for Barr and Durham has to be in conjunction with the IG report, the Archey memos adjudicated to be released, and the Grand Jury information. Which comes first and how does it affect the others?

    It seems to me the IG report is being hidden by Dan Coats. That will end on Aug 15th but it may take some days after for Barr to plow through the roadblock. I wouldn’t think the Grand Jury has had enough time to indict anyone so far. So the timing is release of the Archey memos early August, release of the IG report late August, and Grand Jury indictments shortly after that. Once we get an indictment, the ball will be rolling downhill.

    Barr, PT and others have been asking all along how did this start and why? What was the predicate?

    As Sundance outlines and suggests, the real Spygate was BEFORE 2016 and everything after that was the cover-up.

    If Huber was investigating Comey’s memos while Whitaker was still at DOJ (that is very likely), he would have known about it. There would be no need for anyone to leak it to him. The important question is the timing of his statement. I don’t think it was a slip of the tongue. Either he’s anti-Trump and was attempting to help CNN (unlikely), or he was asked by someone at DOJ, most likely AG Barr. If DOJ subsequently tells the court they need to keep he memos classified, then it will be a strong indication they wanted to keep the investigation secret until now.
    The only reason CNN wants the memos is because they think there’s something in them damaging to the President. It wouldn’t have been hard to convince them since they’re already delusional. But who would have put them up to it? Was it Clapper? He might not know what’s in them. If true, he would want to know if they contain anything that would expose him for his role in the plot against Trump.


    • Richard Whitney says:

      The Dems and the perps want the memos released. CNN is just their agent.
      Back in January 2018, Feinstein leaked the testimony of Glenn Simpson/GPS. She later claimed that she had been taking cold medicine which affected her judgment. She did it so the perps would know what Simpson testified, and they would know how to adjust their future testimonies and prepare their defenses.
      Whitaker doesn’t say Comey is a perp. He says Huber is investigating things related to Comey (and many are eager to interpret that as ‘Comey a perp’). Huber already has sworn testimony from Yates, Lynch and others against which he can compare to the information in Comey’s memos. And when the trials come, Comey will be testifying against those perps – because he wasn’t part of the coup.


      • when the trials come, Comey will be testifying against those perps – because he wasn’t part of the coup.

        Don’t believe a word of it. Comey was perhaps the biggest “perp” of all.


      • Spot on! I have written a much later comment detailing why I think Comey may get charged for some of his acts, but they were a choice of lesser evils evils he faced when choosing whether on not to participate in the plot to take down Trump. Trump will definitely pardon Comey if he is charged and convicted.

        Guys, as much as you’ll hate to hear this, Comey chose NOT to participate in the plot to remove Trump. Comey met one on one with Trump several times. This is simply not done. A President and FBI Director NEVER meet one on one. Comey spilled the details of what was happening to Trump, helped formulate a ‘rule of law’ counter to the plotters and agreed to play his role until the entire episode was wrapped up. Comey has been `playing his role’ ever since.


        • Richard Whitney says:

          You have the scent.
          What gave me the scent, and then the trail, was ‘way back. I was suspicious of everyone’s interpretation of the Flynn charge. Then a few months later the Page&Strzok texts were revealed, with the entire ‘Page&Strzok are lovers’ story, which was suspicious from the get-go.
          Lovers? Did you see any ‘lover’ texts, a la “you were great last night!”? Any hotel receipts, and restaurant receipts? Any spousal reactions (none, in fact Strzok’s wife gets a promotion at the SEC, really as a payoff for the work he did).
          But the ‘lovers’ story was out there, and people still believe it (without a shred of evidence). So why the ‘lovers’ story? Why would you need that story? As a cover for your real; activity.
          Suppose some goodytwoshoes at DoJ or FBI asked “Why are you two always texting each other?” How would you have answered? “Oh, we are committing treason.” Probably not; that person might tell on you!
          But a good cover story is “Shhh. Listen. We are having an affair. Just some suburban sinning. Keep it under your hat, OK?” Any co-worker hearing that would nod, maybe disapprove but wouldn’t repeat it.
          So why did they need that cover? For Andy McCabe? Exactly not. He already knew what they were doing, he was aiding and abetting the treason.
          Not for McCabe. For Comey. McCabe, Page, Strzok and a few others were working the dark side, and Comey was not part of it. Comey had to be kept in the dark.
          Later we learn about the tarmac meeting, how the reporter gets tipped off, and his boss gets independent confirmation. I’d bet a dollar that Comey is behind that expose.
          On December 18, 2018, Lynch testifies under oath about her conversations with Comey. She committed perjury then, because the truth would reveal a more serious crime.
          Comey’s memos will be entered into evidence against Lynch, and Yates and Brennan and maybe some others, when the time comes.
          You are also correct that Comey will have to explain some of his actions in a courtroom. He may be guilty of some crimes because he was surrounded by the cabal gang, above him and below him in authority. And he is still an unlikeable twerp. But he wasn’t part of the cabal.

I have no reason to believe that they are truthful. Instead, I believe that they are a calculated attempt to “poison the well” of potential jurors in a future criminal trial. Comey has calculated to spread “his version” far-and-wide. But I don’t trust that man. “It’s just another dossier.”

In fact, they were patriots protecting our country. They also know the MSM will circle the wagons to protect them and shift the blame to Trump. They also know that Dems are never prosecuted so they feel pretty safe.

      What they are worried about is the spying has been going on since 2012 and the IRS scandal smidgen. They are worried that that truth may come out as it predates any smoke they saw in the Trump campaign. No valid legal predicate. Obama was illegally spying on political opposition

    My thoughts based on audio & Whitaker’s body language at below words/phrases:

    *** W. uses his upper body & his forearm/hands to emphasize words/phrases important to him

    @ 1:17: forceful body movement to emphasize “genius of this investigation” (reflects importance of this aspect)

    @1:23: body & hand emphasis when he “prosecute anyone who needs to be prosecuted”

    @1:28: this key comment Sundance is emphasizing, “Comey’s memos & the like” has more than just the body/hand emphasis. By the time he finishes the phrase he has slowly turned his head away from the interview, slowly closing his eyes (as if they is more in his mind that he doesn’t want to discuss with her). By turning from her, he totally ends this aspect and line of thought in the interview. Obviously, he doesn’t want to expound on it, maybe realizing he said too much. After looking away and turning back, his conversation goes in a new and totally generic conversation. He has successfully moved the interviewer’s mind forward as she totally missed the segment on ‘Comey & the like’, either intentionally or unintentionally.

    Since I don’t watch msm, I don’t know the interviewer’s history. Any guesses as to why she didn’t to follow-up on Comey issue?

    I think Whitaker’s body language substantiates his hypothesis.

Comey’s friend that he was leaking information to is a Professor – I forget what university. Using the university network (too long of a story to include here), they could coordinate and amplify whatever news they want the public – especially young people to receive (Russian collusion). I recall somebody saying that volume II of Mueller’s report was all news stories. Nothing substantial. So who was the head of the snake in terms of the “news”. Michael Isikoff?
