Three Amazingly Unbelievable Takeaways from the Comey Interview

2

Former FBI Director James Comey was interviewed by Bret Baier Thursday evening and made a number of false statements.

One of the worst statements he made was to claim that he didn’t know who funded the dossier even though it was used in part to secure the FISA warrant on Carter Page. He even claimed the Republicans funded it originally — a provable lie.

Comey said — after all that has gone on — he didn’t know the DNC and Hillary campaign funded the dossier. How is that possible? How? After all this time? How could he not have this information? It’s out! It’s definite!

Unbelievably, he also thought those notes of confidential meetings with the President were his “diary”.

The former director blamed President Trump for his hiring. At the same time, he said Trump was “morally unfit” yet he would never have quit. As Trey Gowdy said on Fox & Friends Friday morning, “Comey is always the hero of every story he tells.” McCabe’s also a hero who stood tall even though he lied, but Trump lied, is morally unfit and needs to be impeached, according to him.

The FBI didn’t bother to find out who funded the dossier

As Wall Street Journal editor Kimberly Strassel tweeted after Jim Comey’s interview with Bret Baier Thursday evening,  “It is stunning that @Comey says he never bothered to find out who specifically funded the dossier. That didn’t matter to FBI? Stunning too that he still doesn’t know that Republicans had no part in the dossier-funding itself.”

It’s not actually stunning, it’s a lie.

Leak, me leak?

Comey denied he leaked the infamous memos summarizing his conversations with President Trump. He said he had every right to give them to his friend and his legal team.

The memos concerned confidential conversations with the President, they were written on official FBI stationary on FBI time.

Comey acknowledged giving the memos to at least three people including his professor friend, Columbia University law professor Daniel Richman. He said he sent Richman a copy of the two-page unclassified memo and “asked him to get the substance of it out to the media.” He was smiling the entire time.

“The reason I’m smiling, Bret,” Comey said. “I don’t consider what I shared Mr. Richman a leak.”

In addition to Richman, Comey said he gave the memos to other members of his “legal team,” including David Kelly and former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald.

“I gave the memos to my legal team after I gave them to Dan Richman — after I asked him to get it out to the media,” he said.

He claimed the memos were personal, not official. They were like his “diary”, he said.

The truth is he did it to get a special counsel appointed.

He wasn’t as calm when he was interviewed by Anderson Cooper at the townhall earlier this week.

Rep. Ron De Santis does think Comey has a lot to worry about.

McCabe ‘Stood Tall’ Even Though He Lied Several Times

Bret Baier asked him about his tweet praising Andrew McCabe because he “stood tall”. Baier asked him if he still felt that way after he found out he lied three times. Comey said he stood tall despite lying.

Comey said, “Yeah. I still believe he stood tall. He represented himself and the organization under tremendous stress during that period after I was fired. But I read the IG report as you did. It concluded that Andy had not been candid. This is what accountability looks like in the Justice Department.”

This is the man who thinks the President is “morally unfit.”

  1. As a former FBI Director he sounds more like a Sgt Schultz.

    Notice when Brett asks Comey if Brennan was the source of the leak he doesn’t ‘directly’ answer that question specifically.

    This entire Carter Page reason for the counter-intelligence probe is highly suspicious. Court documents have proven that Page worked FOR the FBI as an undercover operative. Maybe it’s about time for Congress to have these internet sleuths “brief” them since they seem incapable of discerning all the ties that have been uncovered.

    Whether Comey says the FISA application has not been released is immaterial since members of Congress HAVE read it and state contrary to his statements on the matter. If the dossier was “part” of the reason Page was under surveillance then Comey’s own words are contradictory since he states the dossier was “unverified”. Comey needs to be put on the stand and cross-examined.

    If Richman was an SGE then HE should be investigated for the leaking.

  2. Comey’s ability to communicate vagueness is stunning, He’s not sure. “It’s possible”…He thinks… It’s not for him to say…. It’s his understanding…. He doesn’t remember clearly, ‘I’m not allowed to say,’ and on and on. He doesn’t know an awful lot for being a director of the FBI
