Sunday Talks: Sanctimonious James Comey -vs- Insufferable Chris Wallace…

Former FBI Director James Comey appears on Fox News for a defensive narrative building session with his ally in fraud, Chris Wallace. The topic is how the FBI under Comey’s leadership manipulated the FISA process and lied, repeatedly, to the FISA court in order to gain technically legal surveillance authority over his political opposition.

Wallace presents a high-level review, intentionally absent of specific details, providing sanctimonious Comey with the opportunity for professional deflection and obfuscation. Comey repeats his well rehearsed points providing plausible deniability to the questions; proving once again he is a manipulative liar, devoid of intellectual honesty, and without an ounce of integrity.  Mr. Comey “doesn’t understand” a lot of things…

This is the former Director of the FBI. The FBI has a decades-long history of gross inefficiency in stopping terrorist attacks on U.S. soil; now we see why. In essence, Comey admits the FBI is a rogue federal agency without any direction or oversight. The focus of the DC institutional effort is to refine their skills explaining why they fail.

    Something that keeps passing through my mind is that yes, people are finally admitting that the Steele dossier was ordered and paid for my lying Hillary Clinton. It was a pack of lies and the FISA warrants were illegal, ….BUT…

    Why wasn’t Mueller able to come up with these findings in his “investigation”? He was supposed to pick up on the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. Didn’t he look at the “evidence” he had in his “investigation”???? After spending millions why didn’t he find the same thing Horowitz found????

    What were those 13 lawyers and their “investigators” doing all those months?? Creating more lies and planting more false evidence?

      If you go back about 6 months ago–probably when Mueller was testifying, Sundance discussed this. The Mueller team by June 2017 knew there was no “there there.” Mueller took over 5/17/2017. From that point forward they were trying to construct an obstruction of justice case for which Pres. Trump could be impeached.

      Notice Nadler was even saying his committee would investigate the Mueller report during the impeachment hearings last week. So it was somewhat interesting that they did not have an article of impeachment for obstruction of justice.

      Maybe they’re saving OoJ or the next round of impeachment.

      This is the question no one is asking! If there was nothing but exculpatory evidence since the first FISA then what did Mueller do for two plus years? He should be the next Graham should put before his committee and asked some hard questions and if he gives BS answered hold him in contempt and put him in jail. He has already lied to Congress.

      Literally Comey and his buddies tried to install Hillary Clinton as President by walking her on multiple, easily proven, Felonies and then he tried with his Lawfare, CIA and other Deep State buddies to actually frame the President of the United States. The FBI is a total clown show — no one I know respect it or any of the “Agents”, Field or otherwise–the “bad apples” picked the rest, it should be shut down. —

      The DOJ is full of Leftist Activists and law breaker “Prosecutors” who don’t follow the rules or the law, have no problem framing people in conjunction with the FBI creeps, and nothing happens to any of them when they get caught–Horowitz outlines it and then lies about it in his Conclusion–this is the best the USA “Law Enforcement” Feds can do?….AG Barr had better do something, the majority of people know what is up at this point and that DC is totally corrupt and the FBI/DOJ are on par with the old KGB of USSR days.

The negative slant they have taken comes from the top. Its a strategic move telling the Murdoch’s don’t screw with me in the next election, or ill take you down.

    Tweet “Schiff tells Chris Wallace he was unaware of errors and omissions in FBI use of FISA process. Bunk. The much-derided Nunes memo, which Schiff strongly disputed at the time, called attention to these very abuses. Most media, of course, echoed the Schiff version, scoffed at Nunes.”

      FISA Court Rolls Over, Plays Dead
      Aug 28, 2013

      https://www.forbes.com/sites/jennifergranick/2013/08/28/fisa-court-rolls-over-plays-dead/#2b26114763ae

      A newly declassified opinion shows FISA court “oversight” in the face of egregious, unconstitutional and potentially criminal government misconduct means nothing.

      Last week, thanks to the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s excellent FOIA work, we got the gift of a newly declassified 2011 FISA court opinion. The opinion finds that the government misled the FISA court for over three years about the details of its illegal and unconstitutional surveillance programs. These lies hid from the court the fact that every year, the NSA is collecting at least 56,000 emails – and possibly many more — between innocent Americans who have no foreign connections and are suspected of no crimes. That’s bad, but the worst part of it is, when the government’s lies were finally exposed the FISA court demanded … that NSA analysts read our private messages right away, so they can be used or deleted more quickly. In other words, the government got not a slap on the wrist, but a pat on the back.

      This was the third lie in less than three years that the FISA court had learned about. The judge described one such pattern of lying in Footnote 14 of this newly declassified opinion. There, the clearly outraged judge said the NSA had misrepresented so frequently and systematically how it conducted its program to collect and query Americans’ phone call records that the agency had utterly subverted the Court-mandated oversight regime for that program.

      So what did the court do when it found out it had been lied to, that purely domestic communications were fair game, that untold numbers of innocent people were being illegally spied on, and that all the safeguards in place needed to be rethought?

      Nothing, really. The court suggested the NSA should train its analysts to notice when their queries turned up an MCT – i.e., an Internet transaction containing multiple messages — and then to look carefully at all the by-catch. If existing procedures allowed them to use anything in those purely domestic messages that they were never supposed to have collected in the first place, great! Otherwise, only after collection and review, should the information be deleted. The NSA adopted this approach, and continues to blithely collect Internet transactions containing wholly domestic communications between innocent Americans to this day.

      So in the face of illegal, unconstitutional and potentially criminal conduct — conduct about which the NSA repeatedly lied to the FISA court — the FISA court “corrected” the problem by requiring … banner warnings that something might be an MCT, and an extra round of review by NSA analysts. The real problem – that the NSA regularly collects Americans’ most private communications that the law does not permit it to collect and lies about it to the FISA court – was simply waved away.

    Fox News should be ashamed of this interview. Comrade Wallace parses every syllable that comes from Republicans but allows the Pontiff-of-the-Potomac to get away with characterizing 27 serious acts of misconduct as sloppy work. Wallace can’t nail Comey on his BS claim of taking a hands off approach with the muh-Russia investigation while he was personally authoring investigation reports on the POTUS? Why Mr. Comey did you even need to brief the President on a dossier that had absolutely no corroboration, especially when you just learned that it’s primary sub-source said it was pure garbage? Why, Mr Comey, were you against telling the public that the POTUS wasn’t under investigation, if that is your story, when you literally had no evidence of Russian collusion? And those are just a fraction of the questions Comey should have faced. But worst of all, Wallace teeing things up at the end for Comey to take a shot at the President made my blood boil. If Fox couldn’t arrange for somebody like Tucker Carlson, Maria Bartiroma or Bret Baier to do the interview, they shouldn’t have done the interview.

For the first time he couldn’t just toss out lies and spin and get away with it, because only he knew better. Thanks to the report we knew better. No longer could he claim the FBI used a “mosaic” of information to get the warrant, because the IG told us it was all about the dossier. Now we could laugh at his response. For the first time ever Jim was forced to play defense. Sure, he still spun and prevaricated. But this time was different. The fact he had to suck it up and admit he was wrong about ANYTHING made the watching worthwhile.

    Remember this: Carter Page’s lawyers and Durham now have Comey on video admitting his FBI screwed Page royally.

He never said it was a total waste of time but his extensive knowledge of the plot dwarfs Wallace’s scripted and limited talking points so Chris only scratched the surface in SD’s mind.

    Horowitz tried his hardest to play stupid about his findings the same way Comey did when reading out that long list of crimes committed by Clinton.

    Horowitz is dirty. We knew that when being questioned about his earlier reports he repeatedly said “We couldn’t find political bias by the prosecutors”.

    No shit, it was the evidence gatherers (FBI) who were biased but he word gamed his way around that one.

    Please Durham, your last name is the only thing that makes me think there *might* be a chance you aren’t going to cover this up as well.

      Right on, right on right on.

      Was watching a 20/20 last night about a girl that got kidnapped from a college campus. The FBI had all the videos of the car that picked her up, figured out what kind of car it was, traced all the possible cars down, but couldnt find the guy. That was out of a total of 18 possible cars. 18 cars and the EFFBI couldnt find him.

      But somebody noticed from the video that a hubcap on the car was broken. He said he noticed this after watching the video for 5-10 minutes.

      They sent the agents out again to check the cars for a broken hubcap. Boom, found it, found the guy.

      FBI guy said they played the quote unquote Good cop bad cop interrogation approach. The FBI guy played the good cop, which did nothing. The suspect broke when the local police officer got tough with him. It was basically good interrogator/bad interrogator.

      The FBI agents had missed the hubcap of the car over and over again, and were just trying to enhance the video enough to read the license plate.

      Oh, that somebody who spotted the broken hubcap on the car in the video? Campus security officer.

      The FBI was utterly useless.

    “Former FBI Director James Comey appears on Fox News for a defensive narrative building session with his ally in fraud, Chris Wallace”
    IMO, this was a planned exercise to begin burying everything. Comey had the questions in advance so he could sound contrite. FOX news is as bad as CNN now. It’s best to rip off the bandaid quickly and get it over with. That’s what this was all about.

      Disagree. It looked to me that Comey got ambushed and hes being thrown under the bus.

      Fascinating how two people can watch the same thing and come away with totally different reactions to it.

    Chris is not too swift on his feet, and missed an excellent opportunity.

    He starts out ok, reporting that the “primary sub-source said that Steele mis-stated or exaggerated his info, etc” Comey responded “Well, it is complicated, because the sub-source could be walking away from his statements because all this was now out in the news”

    Wallace should have come back with, “the IG tells us that the FBI told the court that the sub-source was cooperative and truthful

    So the sub-source is truthful, and he tells the FBI that Steele is unreliable and the info is “bar room talk, rumors and jokes”

    Now we have a clear lie by the FBI:
    1) the FBI lied about the sub-source being truthful (assuming they thought he was lying) or
    2) the FBI lied about the info being reliable, because they knew the sub-source was truthful.

    Wallace’s questioning was “intentionally (or ‘incompetently’) absent of specific details” but it was also far less probing and arrogant than when he relentlessly interrogates Trump cabinet members like Mulvaney or his senior adviser Steven Miller. In those interviews, unrelenting Mikey seems to be looking for a kill shot but Wallace willingly backed off whenever Comey squirmed in his chair.

    That aside, Wallace did present enough relevant questions to force Comey to either admit his culpability or throw everyone below him in the pecking order from McCabe to “7 layers below him” under his patsy bus. McCabe and others might have a different view of Comey’s alleged distant non role in the hyper biased and deliberate plot if they are pressured by Durham. The restrained interview might also have opened the door for many lingering doubters to finally realize that the so called “errors and omissions” at the FBI were real and very damaging to the FBI and the nation.

    I got to watch Republican Senator from Pennsylvannia Pat Toomey agree with Chuck Todd of Meet The Press that President Trump was a dimwit & USMCA is a total giveaway to Pelosi & the “Republican Senators” are going to have to fix “what unfortunately USMCA is an exercise through all kinds of new provisions to diminish trade, and that’s why I hope Republicans reconsider this,” Toomey said. “We have historically recognized we’re all better off with more open markets.” Toomey then went on to say President Trump didn’t do much regarding China at all. Toomey assured Chuck Todd he would be running again for senator and not governor of PA.

    Toomey is the rot in the republican party. He has zero interest in Trumpanomics: closing down borders/lowering infux of non-citizens so inner city/depressed areas start gaining higher incomes, getting our companies to produce here so we’re not spending $ or body parts of military soldiers protecting those companies interests over there, and the ho-hum Trump didn’t do much re:China just tells me he’s no friend of #45 but was pretty close with Chuck Todd. HE’S GOTTA BE PRIMARIED.
