Tag Archives: James Comey

This is big….

Well….I’ve never been a fan of James Comey but it appears he is trying to redeem himself from his interference in the election…today, the NY Times ran a story saying they had seen a Comey memo written after the infamous meeting with the idiot trump where the idiot asked Comey to shut down the investigation into Michael Flynn and Comey refused. As an experienced FBI agent, Comey put the entire conversation down in the form of a memo that he shared with others within the FBI, and these memos are regarded as evidentiary  by the courts…and are backed up by others that Comey wrote during that time that show that trump is clearly trying to obstruct justice and derail the Russia probes. The latest twist in the little story is that Lindsay Graham has invited Comey to testify in public at the senate to go over these developments….just what Comey has been angling for since the idiot trump fired him…..and I was one at the time that said the firing was the end of trump…and it looks like the beginning of the end. Everyone that knows Comey, knows he always leaves a paper trail behind but the trumpistas were just too damn dumb to recognize it…..hope this mess gets Sessions, too, since he was instrumental in Comey’s firing…and that would be obstruction of justice, too…..impeach….

The real reason Comey was fired…

Well….forget all of the bullshit and lies that are coming from trump and his cronies about why they fired James Comey yesterday….there is only one reason, and it’s not how he handled the Clinton e-mails…a few days before he was fired, Comey went to the justice department to ask for more money and personnel to expand the trump/Russia investigation…after the preliminary work found a massive connections that he needed more money and investigators to unravel. Once sessions heard about it, he ran to trump in a panic and convinced him to do something…and that something was obstruction of justice by firing Comey. With this little tattletale move by sessions, it is clear that it was a lie that he recused himself ..from the Russian investigation, but, everyone knows that there are only liars in this administration and this is just the latest lie from the creepy Keebler elf. Sessions needs to resign right now…and the repubs in the house and senate need to start doing their damn jobs and holding trump accountable….impeach….

Trump fires Comey….

Well…did anyone else see this coming? As the noose closes around trump and his cronies, trump flails around like the wounded elephant that he is and fires the FBI director….the reaction to this obstruction of justice has been varied on the web from “we’re all screwed” to “this just shows how desperate trump is”…..I’m not sure how I feel about this just yet but I still have a little faith in our institutions and think there are enough ethical folks out there working on these investigations that won’t let this deter them from doing their jobs…like the NY AG who is working on trump money laundering and many other crimes that his gang have committed. And the grand jury in VA that has already issued RICO warrants that are yet to be served…and that is where Comey was for his last day of work….talking to that grand jury and I’m sure that is one of the reasons they fired him today…but, trump is so damn stupid and doesn’t understand how government works that he thinks that firing the director will stop all of the investigations…what does he expect all of the FBI agents to do? Just sit at their desks and play on Facebook until a new director is named? Not gonna happen…the stink of desperation is all over this….impeach…

Clinton and trump treated the same?

Well….have been reading a little about Comey’s testimony in the senate today and most of the response from the idiot repubs come from the WH playbook…that the only problem is that people were leaking information to the press….not that Comey put his thumb on the election scale and cost Clinton the election. When asked about that by dem senators, Comey answered that he treated both trump and Clinton the same….okay, let talk about that a minute…where was the letter to the house about trump’s ties to Russia when Comey just couldn’t wait to let the house know that they had found duplicate e-mails on someone else’s computer? In his testimony today, Comey even admitted that he knew that his letter about Clinton  would be leaked to the press by the repubs…but now he is “nauseous” that it happend and the he “may” have affected the election. This is bullshit…he knew damn well what he was doing would damage Clinton and he did it anyway….being a lifelong Clinton hater he even allowed the NY office of the FBI to work openly to help elect trump…and no amount of bullshit backfilling is going to change how much damage he has done to the US and the world…what a load of crap…..

Where were you in July, Comey?

Well…there is a hearing going on in the house today with James Comey on the Russian collusion with trump to throw the election his way….there have been a few things that have come out that are eye opening to say the least….that the FBI has a counter intelligence operation going that involves Russia and the trump campaign and have had one since last July…and that means that they are pretty sure the Russians were using the trumpsters to spy here in the US…and they are sure that the Russian actions were meant to hurt Hillary and help trump…they were not the innocuous “meetings” that trump has said they were but part of a Russian intelligence gathering operation. I don’t see how that is much different from what Comey did before the election…he was trying to throw it it trump, too. But, let’s give him the benefit of the doubt for a while… a very little while….the worst part of the hearing is the sick display that the repubs are putting on, not even trying to get to the bottom of the Russian interference…they think the Huuuge crime here is that someone leaked that there was criminal behavior going on, not the criminal behavior itself. This is your modern repub party folks…party before country, party before doing the job the American people elected them to do….so much for the party of the supposed patriots…they are perfectly fine that Russia threw the election…just as long as it’s to their guy….impeach…

This is why the FBI needs to be reformed…

Well…if it wasn’t bad enough that the FBI director tried to swing the election to Trump last week with a breathless letter to congress that said there were new e-mails to be looked at from Hillary’s server…never mind that they were not sent to nor from Hillary…he still had to try to help his guy Trump…now we find that the investigation into the Clinton Foundation was not based on anything but a book written by a noted Clinton hater that was pulled by the publisher since it was full of provable lies. But, that it was against the Clintons was enough for the FBI to spend millions of dollars investigating the right wing propaganda from the book. Now, this is a pattern of the people in the FBI and the director using the agency to forward their right wing views when it is supposed to be a neutral fact finding institution…and that is enough to reform the organization from top to bottom to weed out the people who are, on a daily basis, letting their political views and their Clinton derangement syndrome color and delegitimatize the entire organization….something needs to be done…and no more “internal investigations” that are just CYA…geez….

Harry Reid is a badass…

Well…with the flap about James Comey of the FBI trying to influence the outcome of the election, Harry Reid just sent this letter to Comey about Trump and his cronies:

“I am writing to inform you that my office has determined that these actions may violate the Hatch Act, which bars FBI officials from using their official authority to influence an election. Through your partisan actions, you may have broken the law.”

“In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government — a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States, which Trump praises at every opportunity. The public has a right to know this information. I wrote to you months ago calling for this information to be released to the public. There is no danger to American interests from releasing it. And yet, you continue to resist calls to inform the public of this critical information.”

“I led the fight to get you confirmed because I believed you to be a principled public servant,” Reid concluded. “With the deepest regret, I now see that I was wrong.”

THIS should be the story…..geez….

Even worse for Comey….

Well…I know I’ve been harping on the idiot Comey and his attempt to affect the election by his ham-handed letter to the repubs in congress that he knew would be used as ammunition against Hillary, but there is one more thing…or a couple of things that need to be said. First, this idiot does this breathless nonsense when he has never seen the e-mails in question…in fact, no one in the FBI has seen them since they are still negotiating the warrant that is necessary for them to be read…so…we do know that they are not from or to Hillary and that they are not classified….so what the hell was Comey doing hyping them to the repubs? Just putting his finger on the scale any way he could to help his man Trump….but, this little mess might just cost Comey his job…there has been a complaint made to the government ethics office that Comey at the very least has broken rules of the justice department and may have broken the law by revealing details of an ongoing investigation…that would be just the height of irony..that the country’s top cop breaks the law for political advantage…or just stupidity…not sure what one is worse…geez…

Why no news releases from Comey on Trump?

Well…the FBI director showed his true colors Friday when he tried to change the election by a news release that announced that they have found “new” e-mails that might have something to do with Hillary’s e-mail server. Never mind that this goes against decades of policy at the FBI and that the Attorney General told Comey not to comment on an ongoing investigation, this idiot just had to wade in with his man Trump losing. My question here is why no releases on the 5 different investigations that Trump is under? You would think that the excuse of “transparency” would work both ways, wouldn’t you? Nope, not for the repubs…who can NEVER be trusted…ever! So resign, Comey, you have destroyed an trace of credibility that you had left and have ruined the reputation of the FBI along with it….geez…

This makes it worse for Comey…

Well…if this latest bullshit “investigation” wasn’t enough to show that the FBI director Comey is a hyper partisan hack, the details make it even worse…three e-mails, yep just three e-mails and none of them were on Hillary’s server and it appears that the release of the letter from Comey was coordinated with the rest of the repubs since Trump started talking about it within 5 minutes of the release and Paul Ryan immediately called for Hillary’s briefings to be suspended. Now Comey really needs to go….he should resign immediately or sooner…geez…
