Comey lied at least here…

It’s not so much that he got the wrong date, but what he said hinged heavily on that date…

THOUGHTS?

It’s almost funny to look at Leftwing Comments pages and Rightwing Comments pages on the same stories!

DO YOU THINK COMEY WON OR TRUMP WON YESTERDAY AFTER COMEY’S STATEMENTS?

By the way….CLAPPER, on CNN LAST NIGHT, said that TRUMP IS A THREAT TO AMERICAN DEMOCRACY    I heard him.

  1. Comey let Clinton slide.
    Ignored “obstruction” from Lynch.
    Acted cowardly.
    Leaked his own memo.
    He admitted that.
    That’s damning enough.
    What did Trump do?
    Ask for consideration for Flynn?
    Flynn was no threat to Trump.
    Even Chris Matthews thinks Trump is cleared.

  2. The Russians won. This is exactly what they desired, with their asymmetric warfare campaign.

    Trump v. Comey is largely irrelevant, and based on he said-he said. Both contestants in this sad reality show have equal credibility, but the theatrics are a sideshow to the larger investigation(s). And, public hearings only give us the bumper sticker version of events.

    Comey had every right to leak his own memo, so I’m not sure why the right is focused on this aspect.

  3. Comey said he leaked his memo because he thought that there might be tapes based on the Trump tweet.
    A tape would make the memo unnecessary.
    It would be objective, as opposed to a memo that was leaked to admittedly provoke another investigation. An investigation he knew was unnecessary, but politically damaging to Trump.

    Taking their cue from Comey’s Channeling Henri le Deux and his “Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest!”

    Hillary says, “Will no one rid me of this meddlesome probe?”
    Trump says, “Will no one rid me of this meddlesome press?”
    DNC says, “Will no one rid us of this meddlesome PotUS?”
    CNN says, “Will no one rid us of this meddlesome ‘principle’?”

    CI, I just heard Senator Collins agree that Comey definitely cannot leak his own memo, that it was government property. I don’t get it, but that’s the consensus from the legal community. It’s not just the Right pointing this out.
    We ALL know Trump says undignified, thin-skinned things….And, judging by how his lawyer spoke yesterday, I can see RETRIBUTION is the kind of legal advice he’s been getting all these years ..”GET HIM BACK!” It’s fine, you can BE like that, but not as president. Now, we all know Obama punished…look how he treated Netanyahu, Conservative tax payers by the IRS, etc…but he ACTED above it all, he didn’t scream it to the public via tweets, etc.

    FB, they won’t stop till he’s out of office. They’re scared to DEATH about the next Supreme Court appointment…and more.

    Ed, that’s a fabulous point. If there IS a tape, who needed leaked memos?? Medved yesterday said “EVEN CHRIS MATTHEWS…” Cracked me up! Ya, quite something, isn’t it.

    I’ve got to admit RUSSIAN COLLUSION didn’t seem to ME to be the subject of Comey’s hearing!!! It seemed to ME to be ALL about the Comey/Trump feud……..Comey slamming Trump hard to avoid himself being hit hard.

    After all Trump must have heard of people hoping he doesn’t tweet, that he stays above the fray, he tweets this? To quote him “SAD!”

    A spot of rhyme for the nonce (with apologies to Bob Service):

    There are strange things done in that Washington
    Where our legislature sits.
    Men with law degrees go on spending sprees
    That give taxpayers bad fits.

    The Capital’s lights have seen weird sights,
    But the oddest they e’er did see
    Was that time under Trump in a cognitive slump
    Congress interviewed James Comey.

    Now long, tall James was shot down in flames
    For not professing loyalty
    To his outsider boss who was in some deep sauce
    About election trickery.

    So the rumors they flew and fake news did forth spew
    As the pundits all sharpened their knives
    To cut down the upstart who broke Hillary’s heart
    And dig into the Bureau’s archives.

    The Ds were all hot to get off their best shot
    And bring down the pretender’s regime.
    And the networks chimed in with their partisan spin
    Based on Podesta’s dried-up wet dream.

    They all hemmed and some hawed but the truth was outlawed
    By their deepening innuendo
    And big Jim saw his chance for his case to advance
    With a quote from a king long ago:

    “Can no one,” he pled, “please rid me,” he said,
    “of this amateurish president.”
    But the doomed palace coup then began to fall through
    With the absence of strong evidence.

    So the plot to impugn or at least excommune
    The tangerine-tinted El Jefe,
    Came apart at the seams as their spiteful daydreams
    Were wiped out by a blast of Covfefe.

    Mr. Trump; How about this tweet instead? “Mr. Comey’s leak is surprising to me. We have our differences, and we disagree on conversations we had together, but the fact that he is the leaker in this situation is sad and surprising. I wish him well in the future.”

    Hard to give Clapper any credibility these days. He was a Soetoro flunkie and gopher who doesn’t believe the Muslim Brotherhood is dangerous.

    Yes, the founding fathers created a system of checks and balances, which the liberal courts have been working non-stop to unbalance through their judicial activism and DingleBarry overtly assaulted with his pen-and-phone end run around Congress.

    He’s a professional disinformation specialist who knows that if you tell a big enough lie often enough it will eventually be accepted as true by the people who are too lazy to dig out the truth for themselves. Trump is not dismantling that system of checks and balances; he’s invoking it.

    No evidence except innuendo, rumor, and fake news exists to implicate DJT in any conspiracy with the Russians or anybody else. In fact, people like Clapper, Clinton, Podesta, and their ilk are playing smoothly into Putin’s hands by creating suspicion, doubt, and chaos in the US.

    Trump has been right – perhaps clumsily so – in most of his decisions, if not his actions. The only problems are spiteful losers and entrenched liberals fearful of the survivability of their golden parachutes.

    I trust Clapper about as far as I do Koskinen, or Clinton, or Soetoro, or Lynch, or Holder, or McCain, or Pelosi, or Maddow, or Cuomo, or Olbermann, or (insert name here).

    EVERYBODY: Trump did VERy well in the press conference and actually said something like “WE WANT TO GET BACK ON TRACK HELPING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE….” instead of getting into a fist fight with some of the lib media, though he DID get a BIG dig in at them.
    He might be listening to people. I hope so.

    AND he said he’d be willing to speak under oath and didn’t say what Comey says he did. Also hinted that he has tapes but we’ll know ‘shortly’ and the media ‘will be very disappointed’…not sure what that meant. Neither were they, believe me, from the yelled comments he ignored.

  27. A few observations on managerial technique.
    If my direct report was about to make a move I’d rather he didn’t, I would ask him to think about not doing it. Perfectly reasonable. Not obstruction. In fact, it couldn’t be. I’m his boss.
    If I thought my boss was lying to me (and I’ve been in that situation) I would point it out to his manager (and I have) and if nothing changed, I would leave. That’s the honorable thing to do.
    And remember, Comey is well-heeled. He wouldn’t starve.

    It’s exercising influence to affect the course of an investigation, for personal gain. It’s the distinct sign of lack of managerial technique. The “boss” is not above the law. We’re talking about a Congressional and DOJ investigation, not office procedures.
