Late Thursday, Comey’s memos from his meetings with Donald Trump were released. In the past, Comey had implied that these memos were going to help out his argument that Trump was a mob boss who possibly committed obstruction.
They ended up doing the opposite.
They exonerated President Trump of wrongdoing.
From Fox News:
President Trump late Thursday tweeted that the newly released memos written by former FBI Director James Comey “show clearly” no collusion with Russia in 2016 and no obstruction into the investigation.
The memos, which were written by Comey about his interaction with Trump, prove that the fired FBI director never felt obstructed, GOP lawmakers said. Many Democrats claim that Trump tried to hold up the FBI’s investigation into alleged collusion leading up to the 2016 election.
“James Comey Memos just out show clearly that there was NO COLLUSION and NO OBSTRUCTION. Also, he leaked classified information. WOW! Will the Witch Hunt continue?” Trump tweeted.
Trump told Comey during their March 30 conversation that “if there was ‘some satellite’ (NOTE: I took this to mean some associate of his or his campaign) that did something, it would be good to find that out, but that he hadn’t done anything,” Comey recalled.
Comey said Trump restated at the end of their conversation that the president “hoped I could find a way to get out that he wasn’t being investigated.
“I told him I would see what we could do and that we would do the work well and as quickly as we could,” Comey said he responded.
Goodlatte, Gowdy and Nunes noted that Comey “never wrote that he felt obstructed or threatened,” adding that while Comey “went to great lengths to set dining room scenes, discuss height requirements, describe the multiple times he felt complimented, and myriad other extraneous facts, he never once mentioned the most relevant fact of all, which was whether he felt obstructed in his investigation.”
Not only did Comey not mention feeling obstructed but he admitted that Trump actually encouraged him to continue the investigation. Trump told Comey he hopes that if one of his associates did something wrong without his knowledge that Comey finds out. That’s the opposite of obstruction. Comey also pointed out that Trump possibly the two of them had different definitions of loyalty in mind when Trump asked for loyalty.
Basically, all of the hysteria we have been hearing from Democrats over the last few months regarding these memos is based on nothing. Trump wins again.
Comey also vouched for the integrity of Andrew McCabe four times.
A very embarrassing moment for the left.
Mark Levin absolutely torched Comey on Thursday night.
From The Daily Caller:
Nationally syndicated radio host Mark Levin said Friday on “Fox & Friends” that James Comey is an embarrassment to himself and the FBI, adding he is acting like “Bozo the clown.”
“Comey’s like a bad rash. He just won’t go away,” Levin said. “He’s appearing on all these programs and I expect he will be appearing on airport radar and sonograms very shortly. I think he’s done enormous damage to himself. He’s exposing himself to the American people as a very petty, superficial man.”
“This is a former head of the FBI,” he continued. “He’s the former deputy attorney general of the United States. He’s a former United States attorney. He’s conducting himself like a complete bozo the clown.”
Comey isn’t doing himself any favors with this book tour and all these interviews.
