JAMES COMEY’S MAGIC TRICK
June 16, 2017 By Andrew G. Benjamin
“I had to get that out into the public square,” James Comey informed congress. He had to. It was that, important. He was speaking about his private meeting with the president and why a special prosecutor needed to be appointed. That was the unknown plan BEFORE the meeting.
The fix was in. It was in from the very start in order to reverse the outcome of November 8th.
In since the DNC-Mainstream Media-Establishment-Elites coordinated and colluded to conflate the allegations of Russian hacking of software systems in 39 states, which may be factual, or not, to Donald Trump’s involvement in it, which is certainly not. This war plan failed miserably. The conflation narrative was meant to take down the US president who is still in command as I write this, and will be on January 21, 2020 when I write the history of it.
Comey’s friend and associate Robert Mueller needs to recuse himself from his job as Special Prosecutor
The Usual Suspects had to up their game. Incidentally, the report of the Russian intrusion may have been “sexed up” by Obama’s three intel chiefs. The rest of the 17 intel agencies apparently declined to comment on the possibly pre-arranged conclusions reached by Team Obama’s appointees.
Comey’s friend and associate Robert Mueller needs to recuse himself from his job as Special Prosecutor, or the president needs to fire him under his constitutional authorityas the president himself was not a target of any investigation according to FBI director James Comey.
The special prosecutor appointment the Democrats called before the false charges were made, has therefore outlived its very purpose. And the obstruction of justice charges were what James Comey alone created afterward! They have no value in this picture as you’ll see next.
Most importantly, given the latest news, the Special Prosecutor’s work will not be credible after his having briefed friend James Comey in private before the latter testified to congress, possibly on what to say and how to say it, how to make things appear, and right afterward hired a group of prosecutorsmostly Democrat operatives, some with a shady past – who have donated heavily to the Democrats. Until Comey’s testimony Mueller had no relevant material to work with. Not until Comey in the wake of his firing manufactured it.
Mueller needs to go.
James Comey is an intelligence and counter-intelligence professionalin actuality a Clinton political operative for decades wearing the suit of the professional investigator.
By its very nature, counter-intel is the Department of Dirty Tricks. It is the Art of the Dirty Deal, the art of deception, seduction, circumvention, disinformation, dissimulation, mendacity, redirection and the re-writing of plays. It is the Honey Trap. Beautiful women to first compromise and then entrap politicians of a hostile nation, or in this case an “insider” of the opposition party who’s been leaking by self-admission privileged information of which he was in possession.
Comey needed to go.
Disinformation is the public display of 11 hostile-to-Donald Trump women represented by a Clinton delegate-attorney standing behind them, all of whom accused the targeted candidate of assault, then threatened to sue his pants off because the candidate never took his pants off; and then, as their case crumbled in the same sense the Democrats’ case against this president’s collusion with Russian spies has collapsed, promptly disappeared. All of them.
Comey’s upcoming disappearance will follow the $10 Million he will get for a pre-arranged book deal from his alleged Democrat supporters. Cons work only so far as the con men get what they’re after. Follow the money. For example, few believed that $8000 deductibles ever represented “Affordable” Health Care.
Counter-intelligence operations include the blackmail scheme wherein the agent entraps his victim by “setting” him up…gets the victim’s confidence first, manipulates second with conversation that prompts his victim to expose himself, and/or plants concocted evidence on him.
Notes taken after the incident and composed according to the prearranged plan for example.
It is the work of the Dirty Cop. It is the violation of the Evidence Room.
James Comey doesn’t like Donald Trump. Trump sensed it and didn’t fall for the con.It was Comey who refused to release information after his boss politely asked him to at least three times. The president allegedly saidand there were no witnesses other than Comey to support James’ storythat “a cloud” was paralyzing his work. The president said, the people need to know that this president had nothing to do with what was ongoing in congressional investigations.
For obvious reasons now, Comey did not want the people to know. What he wanted rather, is to continue the manufactured investigations and to paralyze the president because he, and not Comey’s decades-long benefactor, won the presidency.
Comey refused to release what was known to all the intel agencies and the various ongoing congressional investigations, that the president is clear of any wrongdoing.
The people were never given the vital information on which months of deceitful, hysterical, phony congressional investigations were held. Comey alone held the key to the incriminating “CLOUD” hanging over and paralyzing the Trump Administration’s agenda to make this nation better, to put an end to middle class families paying $8000 deductibles for health care, and entire states losing insurance providers.
Executives at any business call such wrench-throwing into functioning government’s gears and the refusal to do one’s job insubordinationLEGAL and ethical grounds for dismissal.
Under precedence governing presidential authority, executive privilege includes the president being briefed on ALL confidential matters of concern to the executive, including intelligence, and especially ongoing investigations against persons employed by the branch of possible influence on national security. Congress cannot deny this separation of powers with manufactured charges that are politically-motivated. Moreover, hiring, firing, appointing and dismissing any manager is presidential privilege – and a presidential imperative.
Presidents can appoint – and in Comey’s case – de-appoint.
The fact is, under the constitution the president can fire anyone under his command, with or without reason or explanation.
Comey’s record at the FBI before and after the 2016 election demonstrated the behavior of a hostile political operative who consistently and deliberately worked for the political opposition – and against the interests of his boss and his nation. And no, these two interests are not conflated. To paralyze a branch of government can even be considered sedition. The sedition of a man with an “honest” face.
The face of the con man.
That James Comey and his fans who hung their hopes on a reversal of November 8th were disappointed is a non-sequitor: it is besides the point.
Besides, the point is President Trump has the goods on Comey’s leaving an FBI in disarray with low morale and in open revolt after the “Clinton Matter” was personaly resolved by Comey seizing authority he did not have; after Comey buckled under his boss, the head of Justice, Attorney General Loretta Lynch to demote the Clinton Investigation into the “Clinton Matter;” after his boss who profited for decades from the one being investigated secretly met the husband of the candidate to discuss grandchildren the AG did not have and golf the AG did not play.
LET’S JUST SWITCH HATS FOLKS
Given this background it is understandable and it has been documented, including by FBI agents and the former Assistant Director of the FBI, and Comey’s current superiors too, that Comey fell down on his job and left the FBI hat behind as he put on the Justice Department hat given him by his boss, Sec. Lynch. Under Comey, as Donald Trump maintained for his reasons for firing him, the FBI lost respectability – and its integrity.
The allegations of Russian influence and “hacking” into our election process, seemingly all legitimate at first, were based as now we know, on fictions published in major news outlets, ongoing for eight months, that had actually focused not into an investigation of Russian intrusion, but rather, of the president himself. And on his family. On behalf of furthering the investigation a special prosecutor was appointed at Comey’s behind-the-scenes manipulations right after Comey’s firing (and note: not before), while Comey was at the same time covering up and refusing to tell the people that the President was not guilty of anything.
By so doing it was Comey principally, and his associate soldiers to whom the director leaked fake news on Donald Trump who spread the dark CLOUD over the Trump presidency himself. Comey was working hand-in-hand with Democrats in congress and the Clintons as their agent provocateur.
And that became the problem. Comey and Co. needed another story in the light of the collusion story collapsing around their heads, another narrative with which the transformation they hoped to achieve will happen. The charge of “obstruction of justice” that did not exist before. It needed an opportunity to happen. So make it happen!
We did not watch the hand that was not moving and kept our eyes on the hand that was.
The hand moving was clearly visible: Trumped-up congressional investigations of an innocent Donald Trump. The hand not moving was James Comey, hardly innocent, lurking in the background with his good friend Robert Mueller who was at the ready as the Democrats kept moving the goal posts and rewriting the play the critics panned.
“I don’t think Comey did much to help himself,” James Kallstrom, aformer assistant director of the FBI, told Breitbart News. “He showed clearly why he was not fit to be the FBI director in my view.”
Comey’s admission that he surreptitiously took notes of a private meeting with the president and then leaked the contents to the press through a third party irked the FBI’sformer assistant director.
Said Kallstrom: “This nonsense about his conversations with the president and feeling necessary to write down notes,” he pointed out. “He didn’t write a memo when the attorney general met with President Clinton on an airplane in Arizona. He didn’t write a memo when the FBI was told to not investigate (or on their own refrained from investigating) the IRS, which was violating the rights of Americans by the thousands… What did Comey do when he was told to shut down the investigation of the Clinton Foundation? Did he write a memo then?”
James Comey’s job was to act a wall between investigator and prosecutor. Instead he chose to wear the Department of Justice hat, the prosecutor’s, not the FBI investigator’s hat. He failed to investigate and use the very tools investigators have to recommend anything: to refer a case to the Grand Jury. Grand Juries make the decision to indict. In other words, he was the prosecutor and the jury, decided not to indict, not to prosecute, and not to have a jury of the candidate’s peers, judge.
It was not Trump, but Comey who had Obstructed Justice
As the president correctly said, the FBI under James Comey was in total disarray, it was corrupt to the core, politicized, and as some allege, the agents were in open rebellion. The institution was demoralized under James Comey especially after the Hillary Investigation morphed into the “Hillary Matter.” Comey, who had been helping the Clintons for decades, capitulated to the demands from the Obama-appointed head of Justice to absolve the Clinton Team, and did her job AFTER she, not really having “recused” herself, allegedly ordered him to do it.
Onto this stage entered Knight James Comey to the fanfare of blaring tumpets and red carpets rolled out by the Mainstream Media and the Democrats, with his obvious allegiances and loyalties. James Comey did his best to keep his job in order to obstruct the president. Having failed in his mission and knowing the other shoe was about to drop soon after the president fired Comey’s associate, Democrat Preet Brahara who later took the aforementioned Loretta Lynch’s job as attorney for the Southern District of New York, Comey had to work fast to come up with a better plan.
A plan to entrap the president. And to get a Special Attorney appointed in the wake of the storm he will leave behindthe storm he alone created – just as the cloud dispersed for lack of air and lack of evidence of Trump-Russia alliances.
It won’t work either. The entrapment has already failed because the man whom the left thinks is a clueless dummy carefully parsed his words “hoping” to not implicate himself, and he has not, meanwhile at the same time may have helped his loyal friend under attack. This president is willing to take big risks for big outcomes. For America for example.
That, is a characteristic the last president never had.
He’s soooo O-ver!
Thank The Creator who may have had something to do with it.
As for you folks of the liberal-progressive persuasion hoping for change, I tell you not in jest, suck it up:
The collusion claim didn’t work, so the special prosecutor shifts gears
MUELLER PURSUES OBSTRUCTION CASE AGAINST TRUMP
June 16, 2017 By Matthew Vadum
Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III is expanding his investigation into the Left’s Russian electoral collusion conspiracy theory by examining whether President Trump tried to obstruct justice in the probe, according to the hyper-partisan leak-stenographers at the Washington Post.
It is all nonsense.
Democrats and Never Trump Republicans are setting up perjury traps just as Democrats did during Watergate and countless other investigations. But Donald Trump is no Richard Nixon. There is no evidence Trump covered up a crime, or even that there was an underlying crime to be covered up. But the longer the investigation goes on, the greater the likelihood that someone will innocently contradict himself in a deposition, giving evidence that doesn’t mesh with what was originally said to an FBI investigator. And voila! Someone who wasn’t a criminal goes to prison without forming any bad intent.
The obstruction allegation stems from statements made by former FBI Director James B. Comey who claims President Trump ordered him to end an investigation into former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn’s ties to Russia. Trump denies it even though he has the authority under the Constitution to fire Comey for any reason or no reason at all. Comey himself admitted he served at the pleasure of the president.
If the news report is accurate, it means that the president is under investigation now even though he apparently wasn’t as of May 9, the day he fired Comey, who has since outed himself as a leaker of information about Trump. The notes he took during discussions with Trump are considered his work product and therefore property of the U.S. government that he has a duty to surrender to investigators. Additionally, Comey have committed a crime when he leaked the notes.
“The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal,” said Mark Corallo, on behalf of Marc Kasowitz, Trump’s personal attorney.
Now that the likelihood of Trump or any of his associates being found to have colluded with Russia to rig the last election has dropped to approximately zero for want of evidence, this Deep State-sponsored political theater is moving on to the next best thing: obstruction of justice, a perennial crowd pleaser in the snake pit that is Washington.
And the Left now has an added incentive to push the obstruction narrative because they don’t want to talk about how one of their own, unemployed Trump-hating Bernie Sanders supporter James T. Hodgkinson, late of a white cargo van parked on the streets of Alexandria, Va., came close to assassinating House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) at a baseball practice on Wednesday morning.President Trump, who turned 71 Wednesday, called out the Washington establishment for the all-too-convenient narrative shift.
“They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice[,]” Trump tweeted yesterday at 6:55 a.m.
An hour later he followed up with: “You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people! #MAGA[.]”
This move toward possible obstruction charges by Mueller “marks a major turning point in the nearly year-old FBI investigation, which until recently focused on Russian meddling during the presidential campaign and on whether there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin,” wrote reporters at the Post. “Investigators have also been looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates, officials said.”
The article acknowledges that then-FBI Director Comey had been privately reassuring Trump since January that he personally was not the subject of an investigation.
“Officials say that changed shortly after Comey’s firing,” the newspaper report adds ominously.
Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats, National Security Agency (NSA) Director Michael S. Rogers, and recently retired NSA Deputy Director Richard Ledgett have reportedly agreed to talk to Mueller’s investigators.
As the saga continues to unfold, questions are being raised about Mueller’s apparent conflicts of interest that could disqualify him from continuing to serve as special counsel.
Former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom said this week to radio host Laura Ingraham that Mueller’s 15-year friendship with Comey is “a huge conflict of interest.”
Because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made the decision to appoint Mueller.
“Quite frankly, I was really, really surprised and disappointed with the deputy attorney general, who first-off appointed a special counsel when there was no articulation of any crime whatsoever,” Kallstrom said. “And the statute actually calls for that, so that was ignored.”
Mueller and Comey “are close, close friends and the conflict of interest is so apparent,” Kallstrom said. “I mean, did the deputy attorney general not have access to Google? I mean, you know, check these things out? It’s just unbelievable. It’s off the charts.”
“What crime are they going to be investigating? There’s not even an articulated crime. In fact, from the words of a wide variety of people on both sides of the politics, there is no crime,” Kallstrom said. “The whole thing is a farce in my view. It’s just crazy, and I don’t know what this guy was thinking, this deputy attorney general.”
Meanwhile, in a publicity stunt, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered political asylum to Comey.
“If Comey will be under the threat of political persecution, we are ready to accept him here,” Putin said, comparing Comey leaking notes on conversations with Trump to traitor Edward Snowden whom Russia granted asylum.
“This is strange,” Putin said. “How then is the director of the FBI any different from Snowden? He is not a head of the special services, but a human rights activist.”
Comey need not flee America. The establishment will protect him no matter what.
Trump Obstruction of Justice Investigation: A Witch Hunt?
June 16, 2017 by C. Mitchell Shaw
With the report that President Trump is now under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller for obstruction of justice, Trump took to Twitter in an early morning tweet-rant, describing the investigation as a “witch hunt” and those leading it as “bad and conflicted people.”
The obstruction of justice investigation stems from testimony from ousted FBI Director James Comey, who last week testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee that President Trump told him, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” according to unnamed sources cited by the Washington Post and NBC News.
Comey testified last week that he leaked his memo of his February 14 Oval Office one-on-one with the president to the media, saying, he hoped it would “prompt the appointment of a special prosecutor.” Of course, given the inconsistencies in his testimony, that statement has to be taken either with a grain of salt or on faith to be accepted at all. At any rate, Mueller was appointed special counsel in the wake of Comey’s firing and subsequent leaking of the memo. And now, because of Comey’s testimony that the president hoped Comey could see his “way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” Mueller is reportedly investigating whether that was an attempt to obstruct justice.
In the early morning hours of Thursday — the day after the report came out — President Trump tweeted:
One need not be a Trumpeteer to realize the president has a good point about this being a witch hunt. After all, Comey — the man who claims to be responsible for the appointment of the special counsel who is now investigating whether Trump obstructed justice in a separate witch hunt — admitted, under oath, that the president did not direct him to “let Flynn go.” He only said the president hoped for that outcome.
While being questioned by Senator Jim Risch (R-Idaho), Comey was asked about what he claimed — in his prepared statement, in his memo, and in previous oral testimony — the president had said to him in the Oval Office on February 14.
Risch — who, like Comey, is a former prosecuter — asked Comey, “There’s 28 words now in quotes. It says, quote, ‘I hope’ — this is the president speaking — ‘I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is good guy. I hope you can let this go.’ Now, those are his exact words, is that correct?”
After Comey agreed that it was correct, Risch replied:
He said, “I hope.” Now, like me, you probably did hundreds of cases, maybe thousands of cases, charging people with criminal offenses and, of course, you have knowledge of the thousands of cases out there where people have been charged. Do you know of any case where a person has been charged for obstruction of justice or, for that matter, any other criminal offense, where they said or thought they hoped for an outcome?
Comey answered, “I don’t know well enough to answer. The reason I keep saying his words is I took it as a direction,” adding, “I mean, this is a president of the United States with me alone saying ‘I hope this.’ I took it as, this is what he wants me to do. I didn’t obey that, but that’s the way I took it.”
Risch called Comey out, saying, “You may have taken it as a direction but that’s not what he said.” Comey’s one-word reply was, “Correct.”
“Correct.” Trump did not direct, did not order, did not tell Comey to do anything.
And since all of this is based on Comey’s word, his word is worth examining. And when it is examined, it is found wanting. Because weeks before he testified — under oath — that the president said that and that he “took it as direction,” Comey testified — under oath — that in his “experience” at the FBI, he was never “told to stop something for a political reason.”
That happened on May 3, when he was asked by Senator Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), “So, if the Attorney General or senior officials at the Department of Justice opposes a specific investigation, can they halt that FBI investigation?” Comey answered, “In theory? Yes.” Hirono followed up with, “Has it happened?” Comey’s answer was, “Not in my experience.” He then clarified by saying:
Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that — without an appropriate purpose. I mean, we’re oftentimes — they give us opinions that “we don’t see a case there and so, you ought to stop investing resources in it.” But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason. That would be a very big deal. It’s not happened in my experience.
There are three points here — when one unpacks this statement from Comey — that are damning to the argument that the president obstructed justice by telling Comey, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
First, Comey’s claim that he took the president’s words in February as a “direction” to drop the investigation are starkly contradicted by his testimony in May that such a thing had “not happened.”
Second, this creates a situation where real doubt exists that Comey’s testimony can be trusted: If he was telling the truth in May, he had to be lying last week; If he was telling the truth last week, he had to be lying in May. Liars are lousy witnesses.
Third, regardless of when — if ever — he was telling the truth, he admitted that an official at the Department of Justice can give an order to drop an investigation because of an opinion that “we don’t see a case there and so, you ought to stop investing resources in it.” The president — it should be remembered — is the head of the executive branch of which the Department of Justice is a part. It stands to reason, then, that the president could — without obstructing justice — order an investigation dropped because he doesn’t see a case there.
Building a case for obstruction of justice against the president, based solely on the testimony of a man who has demonstrably contradicted his own sworn testimony, for allegedly exercising his executive power, in a case that has already been shown to be nonsense, could best be described the way President Trump described it in his tweet: a witch hunt.
Why Trump isn’t guilty of obstruction
