COMEY HANDED OVER CLASSIFIED INFO TO PRESS

ComeyAs quoted from the FBI  Directors public statement regarding the release of confidential, top secret information by Hillary Clinton on July 5, 2016: “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before bringing charges. There are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent. Responsible decisions also consider the context of a person’s actions, and how similar situations have been handled in the past.”

“In looking back at our investigations into mishandling or removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts. All the cases prosecuted involved some combination of: clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information; or vast quantities of materials exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct; or indications of disloyalty to the United States; or efforts to obstruct justice. We do not see those things here.”

Hmmmmm……. Now we fast forward to July 10, 2017. Breaking News has just surfaced through requests of James Comey’s private meeting with Donald Trump in which James Comey testified before the Senate on June 8, 2017.

Regarding his first meeting with President Trump on January 6th 2017, First, he testified “We also agreed I would do it alone to minimize potential embarrassment to the President-Elect.”

Then he testified “I felt compelled to document my first conversation with the President-Elect in a memo. To ensure accuracy, I began to type it on a laptop in an FBI vehicle outside Trump Tower the moment I walked out of the meeting.”

Regarding the second meeting between the FBI director and President Trump, he swore “As was my practice for conversations with President Trump, I wrote a detailed memo about the dinner immediately afterwards and shared it with the senior leadership team of the FBI.”

Regarding the third meeting on February 14, 2017 in the Oval office with the president, Comey testified under oath “The President then made a long series of comments about the problem with leaks of classified information – a concern I shared and still share. After he had spoken for a few minutes about leaks, Reince Priebus leaned in through the door by the grandfather clock and I could see a group of people waiting behind him. The President waved at him to close the door, saying he would be done shortly. The door closed.”

Comey stated “I woke up in the middle of the night” and realized I may be able to use memos I had recorded to share my version of events.”  He went on to say “I provided the memo to a friend of mine who’s a Columbia University professor.” knowing it would be leaked to the press to invoke a special prosecutor.

Uh Oh! Now we are finding out the conversation written down and sent to the press through a proxy was in fact sensitive information. The biggest difference between Hillary Clintons “careless use” of classified information and Comey’s admission that he actually handed over classified information should lead him right into a jail cell. Do you think Comey needs to be investigated now??

media corrupt

I have been perusing the websites this afternoon seeing what the mainstream media is saying about the Comey hearing today and as usual they keep a blind eye to the heavy issues and only mention the petty little things. Here is the New York Slimes headlines (did I mention they are failing):

James B. Comey, the former F.B.I. director, testified that President Trump and others in his administration lied when they said agents had lost confidence in Mr. Comey.

“Lordy, I hope there are tapes,” Mr. Comey said, referring to Mr. Trump’s suggestion that he may have recorded their conversations.

Mr. Comey revealed for the first time that he turned over memos about his conversations with Mr. Trump to the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III.

Mr. Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to defend his father.

THE STICK OF DYNAMITE THAT COST COMEY HIS JOB

Comey fired

Seems the former FBI director threw a “stick of dynamite” into the Department of Justice, and committed “atrocities” in his handling of the Clinton email saga, so said White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Accusations were denied that Trump put the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein up to recommending the firing. Sanders said, Rosenstein actually recommended the firing on Monday while he was in a meeting with Trump. “I cannot defend the director’s handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton’s emails,” Rosenstein wrote in his letter to Trump, “and I do not understand his refusal to accept the nearly universal judgment that he was mistaken. Almost everyone agrees that the director made serious mistakes; it is one of the few issues that unites people of diverse perspectives.” Though President Trump told reporters on Wednesday that the decision came because Comey “was not doing a good job.” Democrats decided to use this firing as another way to attack the President. They surmise that the firing is related to the FBI’s investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. This is ridiculous because after months of investigation, nobody has found any such link. The Democrats using the Liberal News Media to spread decisiveness has created this scenario which has been totally unfounded. During the Press Briefing, Sanders said that since Trump’s election, he had been considering letting Comey go and that there had been “an erosion of confidence,” but obviously, the final straw for Rosenstein and Trump was Comey’s testimony last week before a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Sarah added that Comey’s testimony proved that he had committed atrocities in circumventing the chain of command at the Department of Justice and then she said he had thrown a “stick of dynamite” by going around then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in calling a press conference in July 2016 to announce his recommendation not to press charges against Clinton. Then all a sudden a reporter argued at the briefing, that there was little in Comey’s testimony that was not already widely known, Sanders answered and said it was the first time Comey had “publicly and openly” made clear how Comey had handled the probe. It was exciting to watch Sanders taking a shot at the Democrats for complaining about how the President fired Comey. She said it was the “purest form of hypocrisy” because of their many past criticisms concerning Comey. Just a week ago Hillary blamed him for costing her the election. You would have thought the Democrats would have rejoiced. That was Sander’s thoughts too and she shared it.
