What do you think will be the "bombshell" in the Comey hearings tomorrow?
Do you think former FBI Director Comey will have a "bombshell" to reveal tomorrow or will it be a big nothing-burger? If you think yes, then what will it be? Could he use this as a revenge platform to hit back at the President for being fired? Is the narrative about him not wanting to be alone with the President going to come into the discussion?
Read Comey's statement. There's not much there that hasn't already come out in the past few weeks. I don't think there's enough there to prove obstruction. Stupidity, yes. Lack of understanding about how government works, yes.
"Flynns a good guy. I hope you can let this go"...sounds like obstruction to me. I mean why have an fbi? Why have trials? Just let trump decide whos innocent and guilty. In a third world, maybe. Not here.
Uh huh. So trump meets w comey, suggests he drop the case on flynn, Tells him he "expects loyalty", then fires him. And i suppose if obama had fired comey while investigating hillary clinton, you would think nothing of it? Uh huh.One word 4 u: tarmac
And just cause you refuse to see it doesnt mean it isnt there. Trump said it himself. He could shoot someone on 5th avenue and his base wouldnt care. The rest of us, however, are dumping this loser. And his motley crew.
Asking him to drop it is the obstruction. Telling people to leave the room so no one can hear the request, and then telling comey he expects loyalty is a threat and not how a gvt operates.Firing comey for not dropping tbe case is a high crime. Buhbye
Thats right. And most of the people here think as i do. Trump fired comey to save his behind. Sessions lied to congress to save his. Pence just lies period. Its all documented. But u can think its fake news, and 70% of us are dolts. Its nothing new.
No way. I cant stand dershowitz. There was something really corrupt he was involved in here in boston decades ago...He was involved with epstein. Not honorable or honest. I prefer lawrence tribe. And he is not a trump fan.
Sorry but the Clintons have never consulted with Tribe and he is not tenured and is not considered an expert. He opined that Clinton would leave office per law after being impeached. He does not get 18 USC 4 at all. Graduate of where?
What is the value of this statement? Do you think it is the contents of the memo? It is not a sworn statement under oath? As I understand it, there is no obstruction of any kind in the statement.
The key to this statement is how does it relate to the official records at the FBI. If there was any obstruction of justice or question of it being treated as obstruction, then he would have been required by law to bring it to the attention of the Dept of Justice.
As far as I know, this statement or any memorandum of that statement was never officially filed. If he now claims that there was an obstruction of justice by president Trump, then he can become the defendant in a criminal proceeding. 1st, for not filing it with DOJ, and second his testimony in the hearing on, I believe May 3rd where he said he knew of now obstruction. Even though the question he answered would allow wiggle room, it would still not relieve him of failing to file. Taken together, Comey has no legs.
So no Trump bombshell, but there might be a bomb on Comey, especially from his actions on the Clinton investigation. He didn't go to the DOJ in that case either, and that was the investigation that caused him to be fired. For an FBI director, he was ignorant about the law. Intent is not an element of the crime. And there was certainly enough evidence that HRC was covering her criminal activity. Not turning over her server, deleting tens of thousands of emails while she was under a congressional subpoena duces tecum. Much like the people shredding papers while the police are raiding the place.
An innocent person doesn't BleachBit their subpoenaed server. There was more than one server, and they were destroyed.
Why did the FBI give her staff immunity, if there was no crime? They also didn't question her under OATH. The FBI investigation of HRC was cursory. BTW, the immunity for the staff that never gave any testimony, and avoided subpoenas from Congress is another indication of Intent.
Comey is supposed to be so meticulous in his memos, but in Oct when he notified congress that investigation was being reopened, we recently find out that he was relying on what he knew was a fake email. He also misstated the number of emails sent to Weiner by Huma, by decimal places
Comey is in deep in legal quicksand.
The left first said Comey was great, when he didn't prosecute Hillary. Then he was really bad, when he reopened the HRC investigation. So, which way will the left swing tomorrow?
Eric Thanks. It seems to me that Comey and the Obama seated FBI and Intel agencies need to be flushed out of the swamp. Comey is one of the reasons why we can't trust our Intel agencies. As well as their not so good record.
Nope. Comey leaked his memos because the republicans are not willing to do anything about trump. He had to take desperate measures, because this r congress is bought and sold. And can i say lol at your concern. You all luvvved wikileaks and russia.
Yes Dear did you just write that it is OK to commit treason and a couple class A felonies if you think it is OK for your beliefs? Tell that to the women in Leavenworth serving time for less and accidentally. That is really messed up. Meet Corporal..
The bombshell was dropped and exploded mightily. The whole world should be shocked that a sissy snowflake crawled up our bureaucracy so far. Quite a bit embarrassing. I have never met a grown man reveal just what a coward backboneless man he is. This dovetails so nicely with HRC blaming everyone for her failures. He sure as hell had to be fired. No way this guy could do real criminal prosecution type stuff. He would wet his pants if he met a real terrorist. He was terrorized by a 70 year old man? I am glad my 7 year old son did not see this. Comey is the exact opposite of a role model for young boys. (can you have age identity issues like be a fifty year old but "feel" you should be 6 and on a playground)
Comey is so great that he just admitted under oath to committing at the very least two Class A felonies.Just the guy liberals want as their top USA law enforcer. This blindness is scary. But I do notice a quiet response from intelligent Trump haters.
You just dont get it. The republicans have all of us gvt. And theyd rather have putin than hillary clinton. This is the height of traitorism.you all did not mind the hacking by russia. Cheered it,in fact! I dont mind what it takes to stop trump inc.
We are reminded of the stories of men jumping out of windows at the crack of the Great Depression. This person here is in such denial that it is sad. No Russian American Collusion - Can she just not understand words out of the Director?
The answer is no - Leslie, like so many of her Liberal friends simply cannot understand that America rejected Hillary - rejected the Democrat platform - rejected the burdensome regulations - rejected the corruption, spying on Americans, etc.
Wrong. A dem won the popular vote. And read mike farb. She won ec, too. This country wants the aca, wants gun control, wants repro rights, wants rich to pay more taxes. Republicans rig elections. That's the only way they get control. Just wake up.
What is amazing is that the popular vote win is in total opposition of Russia Trump influence, and it points to Russia Clinton influence. After all thanks to her and Obama, Russia is getting 20% of all US Uranium production. Talk about Russian Ties!
