Comey Delivers Political Gut Punch to President Trump
MSN News ^ | March 20, 2017 | Mark Murray

Posted on 03/20/2017 4:20:11 PM PDT by detective

At the outset of a pivotal week in Washington, FBI Director James Comey delivered a political gut-punch to President Donald Trump Monday — and the news possibly could get worse for the president in the days and weeks ahead.

In sworn testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, Comey said there was no evidence to Trump's claims that Barack Obama wiretapped him and Trump Tower, as the current president alleged in a series of tweets earlier this month. And he confirmed that his agency was investigating the 2016 Trump campaign's links with Russia's effort to intervene in the presidential election.

Comey's congressional testimony was mostly political posturing.

The media are setting up Comey to help them in their attacks on Trump.

Comey will be dismissed by the end of the week, if not by morning.

They're all private citizens. Why were they being spied on?

And why weren't the spying equally on Hillary's associations...just look at the foundation.

I don't know who MSN is but it's probably more of the same - Mostly Stupid Nonsense.

Repeat after me. What is the presumption about the lying leftist media?

They are presumed to be lying and we should assume that what they publish is a lie. The presumption can only be rebutted with the outlet providing clear and convincing evidence they are not lying.

That's been my question, too. How the hell did they come up with that conclusion??

It's a mirage.

I don't remember any Russians at the polls....with a knife in my back...until I filled in the dot for Trump.

No, Comey’s and Allen’s comments pushed the NY Times and the rest of the Control-LEFT water carriers out on the limb.

The media has to put-up or shut-up. Either the media has stand-up sources or their entire line of chatter is B.S.

“I just keep asking how Russia helped Trump but no one will explain it to me.”

****

I asked 2 libtards TWICE at point blank range how Russia helped Hitlery. That was a bad day for me and had to get it out on them. They could not answer me either. Had enough of one of them in a room, and everyone snickered when they just babbled nonsense.

I think you might be right. But who would replace him?

What I heard Comey say is that the FBI and the Justice Dept weren’t spying on Trump. That leaves the CIA and whoever else.

I sure hope Trump had a good source before he sent the tweet.
I’m just going to trust that the truth will come out and Trump will be vindicated.

Surprised that Comey was not asked about the technology available to snoops. Suspect that one a cell phone number is known and in use, its not terribly difficult to “listen in”, create a digital record and then a transcript. Also do not suspect that it can be done by one well trained agent who knows how to use this type of equipment. Could a retired NSA techno whiz, on behalf of Obama or someone else, “listen in” to Trump and others without the NSA, FBI or the CIA being officially aware? Perhaps ex CIA chief and Obama acolyte John Brennan should be questioned under oath and his communications reviewed.

Comey said he could NOT discuss the alleged Trump/Russia connection (which leaves many thinking Trump is guilty) but he was more than happy to discuss that there was NO evidence of a wiretap at Trump tower (Trump is guilty AGAIN for making false claims). Either way, Comey implicates TRUMP!.

The 0dunga/Soros/Hillary cabal have something on Comey and he behaves as though he STILL works for them.

That POS SOB Comey should hear these words ASAP: "YOU'RE FIRED!"
