James Comey’s testimony was supposed to be the straw that broke the camels back. He was supposed to tell the world that Donald Trump tried to impede the investigation, he didn’t. He was supposed to showcase a Donald Trump who was scared of an investigation into his campaign,Â he didn’t. Instead, he showed us why everyone wanted him fired in the first place. He turned the FBI into the Comey show. Comey loved his power as FBI Director. Now, his Comey show mentality started long before he was FBI Director.
Excerpt from his Stone Cold Truth website:
This wasnâ€™t the first time he had given a pass to the Clintons.Â In the mid-1990â€™s, Comey joined the Senate Whitewater Committee as deputy director.Â The Clintonsâ€™ were being investigated for fraud in connection with a real estate deal.Â The Clintonsâ€™ were given a pass while two of their closest friends and business partners, Jim and Susan McDougal along with Arkansas Governor Jim Tucker were convicted and received prison time. Jim McDougal died in jail because he was denied the medication he needed to survive.
No one made money on Whitewater except for Bill Clinton who grabbed $850,000 to finance the closing TV blitz that put Clinton back in the Governorâ€™s mansion after Billâ€™s earlier hubris had ended in his surprise defeat for re-election. Bill escaped charges thanks to Mr. Comey.
In 2002, as a federal prosecutor, Comey took over an investigation into President Bill Clintonâ€™s 2001 pardon of financier Marc Rich who was on the lam.Â Rich was a former hedge-fund manager who had been indicted on multiple counts of tax evasion, wire fraud, and racketeering.Â Rich, at the time of the pardon was an international fugitive who fled to Switzerland.
Astoundingly James Comey was the prosecutor in the case against Rich.Â Then in 2002, he took over the investigation of Clintonâ€™s pardon of the same fugitive.Â After Richâ€™s wife contributed $450,000 to the Clinton library fund and $70,000 to Hillaryâ€™s Senate campaign the wheels were greased enough to get the pardon put before President Clinton without going through the DOJ review process.Â After Rich kicked in another million dollars, the pardon was set.
This is onlyÂ an excerpt from Stone’s piece. Stone goes on to lay out Comey’s cover up’s all the way until he is fired as FBI director. Let’s set the scene for where the Comey show began. During the 2016 PresidentialÂ Election, it was uncovered that Hillary Clinton held classified information on her own personal email server. Now, in the eyes of anyone with common sense, this was a crime. Sure, the FBI investigation turned nothing worth prosecuting up but that might be because Hillary whitewashed her servers before anyone could look at them? Instead of doing an in-house investigation he made the investigation public. In turn, the investigation made it into the press and directly impacted the election. Democrats were furious over this. They were furious because this is improper conduct by an FBI director. The FBI is not meant to impact elections. The FBI is not meant to be a political weapon. James Comey did both by making the Clinton Email investigation public. Fast Forward to Comey’s testimony and we realize that Comey messed up even bigger than we originally thought. Obama administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch asked Comey to call the investigation into Hillary a “matter”. She didn’t say “I hope”, she said, “Call it a matter”. Sounds like obstruction of justice no? Instead of telling the necessary people Comey took the investigation into his own hands. Making himself the center of attention and oh by the way he called it a “matter”.
That wasn’t all Comey did during the 2016 Presidential Election to keep himself in the spotlight. The pissgate dossier has been famous since it’s inception. It started when Never-Trump Republicans asked former MI6 agent Christopher Steele to compile a dossier that would hurt Trump and make sure that he didn’t become their candidate. This dossier might as well be considered a fiction book. It talks about a Trump trip to Russia that leaves nothing out. Trump with hookers, Trump with Russian Olgriachs and oh yeah Trump with Putin. This dossier turned out to be false. As I have stated on so many occasions this Dossier should have been thrown into a fire and left to burn. So what did Comey do? He offered Steele $50,000 to confirm the Dossier. To no one’s surprise, he couldn’t. That didn’t stop Comey from letting this dossier be used to acquire FISA warrants on Donald Trump. Once again Comey is going above and beyond to make his impact on politics felt.
Now, we move onto the DNC server hack. Everybody knows this story by now. DNC server gets hacked by the “Russians”. Loads of emails get released by Wiki Leaks. The DNC’s corruption is exposed. After this, the Democrats are up in arms. They want to know who is behind the release.(Seth Rich) They were so dedicated to finding the truth that they didn’t let the FBI look at the hacked server. You got that right instead of letting the FBI look at the server, they hired a third party company by the name of CrowdStrike to look at it. This company has been asked to do the investigation before. They failed miserably at it.
In December, CrowdStrike said it found evidence that Russians hacked into a Ukrainian artillery app, contributing to heavy losses of howitzers in Ukraineâ€™s war with pro-Russian separatists.
VOA reported Tuesday that the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), which publishes an annual reference estimating the strength of world armed forces, disavowed the CrowdStrike report and said it had never been contacted by the company.
CrowdStrike was first to link hacks of Democratic Party computers to Russian actors last year, but some cybersecurity experts have questioned its evidence. The company has come under fire from some Republicans who say charges of Kremlin meddling in the election are overblown.
After CrowdStrike released its Ukraine report, company co-founder Dmitri Alperovitch claimed it provided added evidence of Russian election interference. In both hacks, he said, the company found malware used by â€œFancy Bear,â€ a group with ties to Russian intelligence agencies.
CrowdStrikeâ€™s claims of heavy Ukrainian artillery losses were widely circulated in U.S. media.
On Thursday, CrowdStrike walked back key parts of its Ukraine report.
The company removed language that said Ukraineâ€™s artillery lost 80 percent of the Soviet-era D-30 howitzers, which used aiming software that purportedly was hacked. Instead, the revised report cites figures of 15 to 20 percent losses in combat operations, attributing the figures to IISS.
Finally, CrowdStrike deleted a statement saying â€œdeployment of this malware-infected application may have contributed to the high-loss nature of this platformâ€ â€” meaning the howitzers â€” and excised a link sourcing its IISS data to a blogger in Russia-occupied Crimea.
In an email, CrowdStrike spokeswoman Ilina Dmitrova said the new estimates of Ukrainian artillery losses resulted from conversations with Henry Boyd, an IISS research associate for defense and military analysis. She declined to say what prompted the contact.
Dmitrova noted that the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community have also concluded that Russia was behind the hacks of the Democratic National Committee, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the email account of John Podesta, Hillary Clintonâ€™s campaign manager.
The FBI used this report to come to the conclusion that Russia did it. Now, I’m not here to make the claim that Russia didn’t hack any part of the DNC. All I’m pointing out is the blatant disregard for a proper investigation.
This became the beginning of the Russia-Trump collusion narrative. The narrative didn’t begin with evidence, it began with innuendo and hypotheticals.
We will now move to the day James Comey was fired. This should have been something both sides agreed on. Democrats called for his resignation over the Clinton investigation. Republicans were fine with the firing because Comey was abusing his power as mentioned above. Like only Democrats could they turned this into another witch hunt. Suddenly the Democrats were in love with Comey. Trump had to fire Comey to stop the investigation right? Wrong. Days after the firing Andrew McCabe testifies that the “investigation has not been impeded”. That didn’t stop the Democrats from claiming that he did it to impede the investigation.
Did Trump fire Comey over Russia? Yes. Was it because he was guilty? No. Was it because he wanted to stop the investigation? No. The reasoning for Comey’s dismissal was shown to us in just his opening statement. Trump grew increasingly frustrated about the fact Comey refused to tell the public that he isn’t under investigation. As Trump mentioned on three separate occasions Comey told him he himself wasn’t being investigated.
Let’s put ourselves in Trump’s shoes for a second. You have the MSM, Democrats, and neo-con Republicans all calling you a Russian agent. They are claiming you are a traitor and making sexual remarks about you and Vladimir Putin. They are calling the election that you won fair and square illegitimate. You know you did nothing wrong. You know you’re not under investigation. All you want is for Comey to say Trump himself is not under investigation currently. Comey refused.
Comey didn’t care about why Trump fired him. All Comey knew was that the Comey show was over. Well, unless he could thrust himself back into the spotlight. Comey admitted to the public in his testimony he leaked his memo’s through a friend to the New York Times. This friend is now known as Columbia Professor Daniel Richman. Through Richman, he plotted his revenge on Trump. Comey knew he couldn’t fabricate much in the memos. Once he would be called to testify he would have, to tell the truth. So what Comey had his friend Daniel do was selectively leak what was on the memos. His friend leaked the part about him asking for the Flynn investigation to be “let go”. His friend leaked the part that Trump asked for “loyalty”. Â Why wasn’t the part about Trump himself being under investigation not leaked? Media outlets were reporting that Trump never got that assurance from Comey. That was proven to be false. If Comey was an upstanding guy he would’ve told the Times there reporting on this was false. He didn’t. This was a hit job on Trump. How do I know this? Well, Comey admitted his reason for the leaking of the memos was to get a special prosecutor on the case. This makes me question Comey even further. Why didn’t he call for this same special prosecutor to take over the Clinton case? Well, if you have read any of the article above this you know why.
The Democrats and Mainstream Media rode the Comey express in hopes that it would be the end of Donald Trump. CNN had their countdown set to the date Comey would testify. The Huffington Post practically said he was already impeached. Luckily for conservatives that express hit a brick wall. Comey testified and laid out grounds for maybe his own arrest. Comey testified and displayed that Trump was open to the investigation into his campaign and if any of them colluded with Russia. Above everything else though James Comey showed us why he needed to be fired in the first place. Comey comes off as a real charmer. He talks good and tells you what you want to hear. He truly knows how to play both sides of the isle. The reality is that Comey is about power and keeping himself in it. These memos were nothing more than something for Comey to hold over Trump if he was fired. Those memos were nothing more than Comey trying to keep his place within the DC deep state. My research has concluded one thing, James Comey has earned the nickname so many members of conservative media have given him, he truly is James Edgar Comey.
