    Rush brought up a great point @ 2:45 today. Where are the republicans?
    Comey admitted there is no "muh russians". None, Trump was never under investigation.

    That means all of the democrats and all of the media, all of them, have known the entire time "muh russians" is nothing but a lie. No maybe about it they all willfully participated in mass deception.

    Where were the republicans hammering the shit out of comey and threatening to throw his lying, top secret information leaking ass into prison? Where are the republicans defending their president?
    Where are the republicans crowding the microphones and teevee cameras hammering the democrats and hammering the media for their months and months of blatant lies?

    You folks know the answer I just wanted to rant.

    The answer is there are no fucking republicans. . . :give finger:

    Well said, Irons. Several people lately have asked about my being Republican. I've flat out denied it. You, Sir, have brought clarity to my position. I'm not a Republican because I'm not one of them. "there are no fucking republicans."

    I can see it already. Yesterday Comey kept referring to himself as "Cowardly" for doing, or not doing this or that. Now we hear that he maybe got molested by a Serial Rapist when he was 16? Book Deal? He's going to claim that being molested made him do the things he did, etc., and he'll have all the usual suspects feeling sorry for him. Tell it to Oprah Waldo. I think his whole career has been preparing for this book deal.

    The $64 question is whether Comey signed an NDA

    Personally, I think he's in jeapardy. It's going to be a choice between prosecution or rolling out the Hildabeast Obozo files

    A Pro-Trump Conspiracy Theorist, a False Tweet and a Runaway Story
    [​IMG]
    The New York Times

    By JEREMY W. PETERS
    7 hrs ago

    WASHINGTON — Jack Posobiec had his Twitter sights set on James B. Comey.

    A pro-Trump activist notorious for his amateur sleuthing into red herrings like the “Pizzagate” hoax and a conspiracy theory involving the murder of a Democratic aide, Mr. Posobiec wrote on May 17 that Mr. Comey, the recently ousted F.B.I. director, had “said under oath that Trump did not ask him to halt any investigation.”

    It mattered little that Mr. Comey had said no such thing. The tweet quickly ricocheted through the ecosystem of fake news and disinformation on the far right, where Trump partisans like Mr. Posobiec have intensified their efforts to sow doubt about the legitimacy of expanding investigations into Trump associates’ ties to Russia.

    But as the journey of that one tweet shows, misinformed, distorted and false stories are gaining traction far beyond the fringes of the internet. Just 14 words from Mr. Posobiec’s Twitter account would spread far enough to provide grist for a prime-time Fox News commentary and a Rush Limbaugh monologue that reached millions of listeners, forging an alternative first draft of history in corners of the conservative media where President Trump’s troubles are often explained away as fabrications by his journalist enemies.

    In this fragmented media environment, the spread of false information is accelerated and amplified by a web of allied activist-journalists with large online followings, a White House that grants them access and, occasionally, a president who validates their work. The right-wing media machine that President Bill Clinton’s aides once referred to as “conspiracy commerce” is now far more mature, extensive and, in the internet age, tough to counter.

    In an email, Mr. Posobiec described his work as “reality journalism — part investigative, part activist, part commentary.” A day before his tweet, the White House had allowed him into an Oval Office photo op with the president, and he tried to ask a question about Seth Rich, the murdered Democratic National Committee staff member.

    Once Mr. Posobiec pushed the send button on Twitter, the conservative media machinery kicked into gear. Later that day, Breitbart News published an account of Mr. Comey’s May 3 testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee under the headline “Comey Under Oath: ‘Have Not Experienced Any Requests to Stop FBI Investigations.’”

    GotNews.com, a website that often misrepresents media accounts of the Russia investigation to cast Mr. Trump in a more favorable light, repeated the claim but also raised the possibility of a more serious offense. Mr. Comey, the site said, might have perjured himself if he had claimed in a memo — as outlets including The New York Times have reported — that Mr. Trump pressured him to call off an investigation into Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn.

    The next day, the perjury question was the subject of an article on InfoWars, the home of Alex Jones, a conspiracy theorist who has called the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks an inside job and questioned whether the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., really happened. InfoWars had almost five million visitors in the last month.

    That afternoon, Mr. Limbaugh was also onto the story, telling his audience, “Comey said, under Senate oath, he had never been pressured to halt any investigation.” As evidence, Mr. Limbaugh read straight from the GotNews.com article. The whole Russia investigation, he declared, is “a political witch hunt.”

    That account of the Comey testimony has lived on in the weeks since, with Sean Hannity of Fox News citing it as recently as Tuesday night. “And by the way,” he insisted on his program, “James Comey also said it never happened.”

    What actually happened in the Judiciary Committee hearing was hardly an exonerating moment for Mr. Trump. Senator Mazie K. Hirono, Democrat of Hawaii, asked Mr. Comey whether “the attorney general or senior officials at the Department of Justice” had ever tried to halt an investigation. Mr. Comey, then still the F.B.I. director, said they had not.

    Never did Ms. Hirono ask Mr. Comey anything about Mr. Trump in that exchange, nor did Mr. Comey volunteer anything about the president’s words to him. (Mr. Posobiec insisted that he had misrepresented nothing, saying Mr. Comey’s comments “certainly could include President Trump, who is the senior official of the entire executive branch.”)

    Mr. Trump has had no small role in the elevation and legitimization of dubious news accounts and the sources that spread them — he is both consumer and enabler.

    The president has shared discredited information from his Twitter account on subjects like voter fraud. He has publicly embraced those who trade in these kinds of theories, appearing, for instance, on Mr. Jones’s radio program while he was running for president. And after the election, he called Mr. Jones to thank him for his support.

    Mr. Trump has been seen reading material from GotNews.com, an outlet founded by Charles C. Johnson, who has also helped start a crowdfunding website that pays for private investigations and legal defenses for fringe conservative causes. Among its current campaigns is one to help a man accused of sending a journalist with epilepsy a Twitter graphic that triggered a seizure.

    In February, the president was spotted with a printed copy of a GotNews article in the Oval Office. The article, which claimed to pinpoint a source of leaks from within the West Wing, was shown to him by his wife, according to one person with knowledge of the encounter — first reported by Politico — who did not know how the first lady had come across it.

    The site’s tagline now reads: “President Trump reads us. You should too.”

    The architects of the effort to discredit Mr. Comey seem to be working from a playbook straight from a political campaign, said Angelo Carusone, the president of Media Matters, a liberal group that is tracking Comey threads in the conservative media.

    “This is why they are being effective,” he said. “They are really engaging in a pure persuasion effort. They are not playing by any established rules. And they are cashing in on the mistrust and uncertainty people feel about traditional news media.”

    They are also taking advantage of the proliferation and polarization of avenues to spread their message.

    “The ability to mitigate such disinformation campaigns was far easier in the 1990s,” said Chris Lehane, who worked as an aide in the Clinton White House. Back then, he added, “for the most part the existing distribution channels were not as segmented across ideological lines that, in effect, create parallel realities that run along ideological grounds.”

    Mr. Posobiec, a 33-year-old Navy veteran, was until recently the bureau chief for a right-wing website based in Canada called The Rebel. Its founder, Ezra Levant, said Mr. Posobiec was no longer employed there.

    “We wish him well,” Mr. Levant said, offering only that Mr. Posobiec’s promulgation of the Rich conspiracy had nothing to do with his departure.

    Despite being out of his day job, Mr. Posobiec has not stopped broadcasting or tweeting. He took to Periscope after Mr. Comey’s testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, repeated his false claim from before and leveled a new specious charge: that the former F.B.I. director had acknowledged leaking classified information from his government laptop to the news media. “Comey admitted to breaking the law multiple times,” he said.

    Shortly after the hearing concluded on Thursday, the video had been viewed nearly 30,000 times.

    Comey promised 'honest loyalty' but didn't deliver
    • By Eli Lake Bloomberg View
    • 8 hrs ago


    James Comey: the man who always tries to have it both ways, and sometimes succeeds.

    The former FBI director's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last week was a feast of contradiction and self-serving showmanship.

    Comey said he felt uncomfortable with the president's pressure to drop an investigation into Michael Flynn, Trump's first national security adviser. So uncomfortable that he wrote memos after conversations with the president to record what was said by whom. But Comey kept all of this information closely held until he was fired and never tried to challenge the president directly in these conversations. So just how uncomfortable was he?

    Comey told senators Thursday that Trump defamed him. In his opening oral statement, he said Trump's contentions that there was a morale problem at the bureau under Comey were "lies, plain and simple." And yet later on, Comey said he took Trump at his word when the president told NBC News that he was fired because of the Russia investigation. Why believe the president when you know him to be a liar?

    None of this gets Trump off the hook. Comey's testimony portrays a president who governs like Tony Soprano — with implied threats and bravado. These anecdotes suggest Trump has no appreciation for the independence of federal law enforcement and the dangers of politicizing the FBI.

    But Comey also has some explaining to do. Here we have a former FBI director who presents himself as the last honest man in Washington. He makes a point of elaborately explaining his actions as by-the-book law enforcement. And yet his own story is a kind of paradox. He says that he felt pressured but that he did not give in to the pressure. He blows the whistle now, but didn't at the time.

    Comey said he considered Trump's request to drop the Flynn investigation, a day after Flynn was fired, to be a "directive." That's not quite an order, but it's close. Yet Comey ignored that directive. He paid close attention in his meeting with Trump. He took notes and shared them with the FBI's senior leaders, but he made sure to shield his own workforce from this information, fearing it would have a "chilling effect" on the investigators digging into Flynn.

    Very well. This, however, raises an important question. If Comey believed knowledge of the president's wishes to drop the Flynn investigation would pressure investigators, why leak it to the New York Times? Now every FBI agent in the country knows what Comey had hoped they would never learn.

    It turns out that Comey's calculation on the Flynn request changed after he was fired. In a rare moment of Washington candor, the former FBI director acknowledged his own leak. "My judgment was I needed to get that out in the public square, so I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter," he said. "Didn't do it myself for a variety of reasons, but I asked him to because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel."

    Well, what do you know? Comey's leak worked. Soon after the story hit the Times, the deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, appointed another former FBI director, Robert Mueller, as special counsel.

    So why didn't Comey act sooner? If it was a good idea after he was fired, wasn't it also good idea before he was fired? He didn't really say. At one point, he said he believed the most important thing he could do would be to stay in his position to make sure the FBI wasn't tainted by the president's pressure. (How convenient.) At the same time, Comey acknowledged that Trump said he should investigate whether any of his associates (Trump called them satellites) did anything illegal or improper.

    In his many memorialized meetings, Comey never really challenged Trump directly on these requests. The closest he came was to ask the deputy attorney general to never allow him to be in a one-on-one meeting again with Trump. When Trump asked him to drop the Flynn investigation, Comey demurred and simply agreed Flynn was a "good guy." In the hearing he said he hoped his non-answer on dropping the investigation would be a signal to the president that he couldn't do this. When Trump asked for his loyalty, he promised him his honesty, and then ultimately his "honest loyalty."

    It turns out that Comey didn't deliver Trump his loyalty or his honesty. If he had, he would have told the president at the time that what he was being asked to do was wrong and that he would not work under such conditions. Instead, Comey took notes and waited for Trump to strike first.

    Comey was unabashed, but pay attention to what he didn't say
    • By EUGENE ROBINSON The Washington Post
    • 8 hrs ago


    WASHINGTON — What do you do if you've just been fired as director of the FBI, the administration has chosen to "defame" you with "lies plain and simple," and you believe the president of the United States may be trying to obstruct justice? You leak bombshell information to the media in hopes of forcing the appointment of a special counsel. It might work.

    Actually, it did work.

    In stunning public testimony Thursday, James Comey acknowledged arranging for a friend to leak details of a conversation Comey had with President Trump — the Feb. 14 Oval Office encounter in which Trump said he hoped the FBI director could "drop" the bureau's investigation of fired national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to Comey's contemporaneous notes. "I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel," Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee about his orchestrated leak.

    "I don't think it's for me to say" whether Trump committed obstruction, Comey demurred, "but that's a conclusion I'm sure the special counsel will work toward, to try and understand what the intention was there and whether that's an offense." Comey said he took Trump's words not as just a "hope" but as a "direction" from the highest official in the land, an order he was not about to obey.

    Three months later, with no warning, Comey was summarily dismissed. "It's my judgment that I was fired because of the Russia investigation," Comey testified. "That is a very big deal."

    Comey was unabashed about accusing Trump and his administration of telling "lies," and said he began the practice of immediately making notes after talking with the president because "I was honestly concerned that he might lie" about the conversations. He said he had no such concern about the veracity of the other two presidents he served, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

    On one subject, Comey confirmed that the president is being truthful: Comey did tell him three times that he was not personally under investigation. Comey explained that this was "technically" the case during his FBI tenure. He said he does not know, however, whether special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Trump now, and left little doubt that he hopes Mueller is doing just that.

    Comey's best line of the day was a belated response to a May 12 tweet from the president, which warned that "James Comey better hope that there are no 'tapes' of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"

    Said Comey: "Lordy, I hope there are tapes."

    I hope so, too, but I would be surprised if such recordings exist. Trump's inner circle is such a sieve that full transcripts surely would have leaked by now. Investigators and the public will have to decide whether they believe Trump, who lies all the time, or Comey, who has a flair for the dramatic but also the bearing of an oversized Boy Scout. That's a pretty easy choice.

    And now for some rare kind words about members of Congress: Overall, the senators questioning Comey behaved in a manner that could be described by such last-century terms as "bipartisan" and "patriotic." The Democrats' questions tended to be somewhat more accusatory toward the president, the Republicans' questions somewhat more exculpatory, but there was a welcome air of sobriety about the whole thing. At this point, any examples of grown-up behavior should be recognized and praised.

    The one exception was the weird line of questioning pursued by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who wanted to know why Comey wouldn't publicly clear Trump of wrongdoing even though he had done so for Hillary Clinton. Comey tried to explain that the investigation of Clinton's emails was finished whereas the investigation of Trump's campaign is ongoing. "Maybe going forward I shouldn't stay up late watching the Diamondbacks night games," McCain later said.


    As perhaps should have been expected, the most important takeaway from Comey's testimony may be what he didn't say. Topics he scrupulously avoided may give a hint of where the investigation is headed.

    He declined, for example, to answer a question about Vnesheconombank (VEB), a Russian government-owned development bank linked to President Vladimir Putin. Trump's adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, met last year with VEB executives.

    Comey was also reticent about his interactions with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was his boss and who had to recuse himself from Russia-related investigations.

    Comey's memos about his meetings with Trump are now in Mueller's hands. Trump desperately wanted the Russia investigation to end. Firing Comey ensured that it is only beginning.

    The bias oozes

    Eugene Robinson is a Democrats democrat and therefor can't be trusted. For example, in this article he states matter of factory that "Trump lies all the time"'

    No hedge, no qualifier, no proof or examples

    Back to swamp with you eugene, you F'ing race baiter

    Comey’s Media Circus Didn’t Disappoint
    TheJohnBirchSociety



    Published on Jun 12, 2017
    Mainstream media spun Comey’s testimony so hard last week that motion sickness should have been an epidemic in America’s newsrooms! They set up a pre-testimony narrative that did not come true, yet did the best they could to fulfill it. We discuss this and other happenings in Congress that you may have missed due to the Comey media circus in this episode of Analysis Behind the News.

    The crime that haunts James Comey: How the former FBI director and his brother were held hostage in their New Jersey home at gunpoint by a deranged rapist - who has NEVER been caught
    • As teenagers James Comey and his younger brother Peter were home alone when a man in grey clothes and a dark cap broke into their house with a gun
    • The man pointed the gun at their heads, locked the boys in the bathroom and began searching their house in Allendale, New Jersey
    • The brothers managed to crawl out of the bathroom window and dashed into the yard, but the gunman spotted them on the lawn from across the street
    • The boys ran back inside and called the police, and the assailant fled into the woods never to be apprehended
    • They learned that the man was known as the Ramsey Rapist, who had targeted teenage babysitters
    • Looking back on that night, Comey said he didn’t think he would make it out alive called it a ‘horrific experience’

    'I think it was more egregious than I may have even understood at the time': Sessions says Comey firing was due to his 'stunning' handling of the Clinton email scandal even though he praised fired FBI head in the past
    • Attorney Jeff Sessions was questioned about the firing of former FBI director James Comey
    • He wrote a letter to President Trump buttressing the case for Comey's firing that focused on his handling of the email scandal
    • Comey infuriated Democrats during the campaign with a press conference where he labeled Clinton as extremely careless but declined to recommend prosecution
    • Then, days before the election, he told Congress the investigation was starting up again, only to announce new key discoveries had been found
    • Sessions said Tuesday Comey's conduct was more 'egregious' than he realized at the time

    Hero vs. human: A tale of two Comeys
    • By RUTH MARCUS
    • 8 hrs ago


    In life, as in literature, the more complex character is the more compelling and the more realistic. We may crave heroes but we end up with humans. The cardboard figure of unblemished rectitude, who performs impeccably under pressure and is impelled only by the purest motives, gives way to a real person, with all the inevitable blemishes and failings that human nature is heir to.

    So it is with James Comey, the fired FBI director.

    The nation's first introduction to Comey came a decade ago, with his dramatic account of racing to the hospital room of then-Attorney General John Ashcroft to head off an effort to pressure the gravely ill Ashcroft to reauthorize a secret surveillance program.

    Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Comey described the tense scene as top White House aides arrived at Ashcroft's room in an unavailing effort to secure his signature. FBI agents, dispatched by, yes, then-FBI Director Robert Mueller, were posted outside the door to prevent Comey's ouster as he faced down the president's men.

    This was Comey as superhero, able to leap up hospital stairs in a single bound. It was Comey as resolute public servant, leader of a brave band prepared to quit rather than waver in defense of the rule of law.

    "I couldn't stay, if the administration was going to engage in conduct that the Department of Justice had said had no legal basis," Comey testified. "I just simply couldn't stay."

    Comey, the sequel, presents a figure more nuanced, imperfect -- and realistic. The fired FBI director may have an aw-shucks demeanor ("Lordy, I hope there are tapes") but he exposed himself as a Washington operator and survivor, with all the bureaucratic maneuvering and sail-trimming that entails.

    This Comey didn't confront, he navigated, walking the treacherously narrow path between his desire not to alienate the new president and his mounting alarm at Trump's heedlessness of proper boundaries.

    Thus, according to Comey's account, he found himself at an uncomfortably intimate dinner with the president in the Green Room, seeking to defuse Trump's demand for loyalty first with stone-faced silence, next by acceding to the president's oxymoronic "honest loyalty."

    As Comey recalled, "I decided it wouldn't be productive to push it further."

    Less than a month later, left alone with the president in the Oval Office, Comey again ducked a direct challenge. As Comey testified, when Trump expressed his "hope" that Comey could drop the case against fired national security adviser Michael Flynn, the FBI director lunged for their common ground: "He's a good guy."

    Asked why he did not rebuff the president, Comey offered, "Maybe if I were stronger I would have. I was so stunned by the conversation that I just took it in." This was not Comey the brave but Comey the self-protective bureaucrat. He didn't confront, but he did write a memo to the file.

    Nor was this the first administration in which Comey chose his battles with an eye to political realities. When former Attorney General Loretta Lynch asked him to call the Hillary Clinton email probe a "matter," not an "investigation," Comey testified, "I just said, all right ... this isn't a hill worth dying on."

    And then there is the matter of Comey's bank shot leak, from him to Columbia law professor Dan Richman to, anonymously of course, The New York Times -- all in the service, Comey testified, of seeing a special counsel appointed. Not exactly the behavior of a Boy Scout, unless there is now a Merit Badge in Machiavelli.

    That is not to say that Comey was wrong to get out the word about his chilling encounter. It's just that his aura of by-the-book self-righteousness comes with a slightly less honorable tinge. Comey has managed to infuriate both Democrats -- with his imperious decision to assume an outsize role on the Clinton, ahem, matter -- and Republicans, a decade ago and now.

    Listening to Comey's testimony called to mind Benjamin Wittes' account of a conversation when, Comey, still in his job, expressed "palpable" concerns about deputy attorney general nominee Rod Rosenstein, a career prosecutor who had managed to keep his political appointment under Republican and Democratic presidents. "Rod is a survivor," Comey observed. As Wittes paraphrased: "You don't get to survive that long across administrations without making compromises."

    Did Comey recognize something of himself? Once he was, or presented himself as, the archetype of unyielding probity, now he has morphed into something more complex -- less heroic, more flesh-and-blood. This Comey is more flawed and, perhaps for that very reason, more believable.

    Yeah, so what? Just appeasing the peasants. Even when it is proven Trump didn't obstruct justice, he will still be branded some how.

    Could be wrong but Comey (along with Loretta Lynch, Bill & Hitlery Clinton and a host of others) is a criminal and a traitor to our way of life in my opinion.

    Snowden is a whistleblower who alerted his fellow citizens to some very unsavory (and probably illegal) government practices.

    Just my take on things.............fwiw.
