RUSH: In other lighthearted news, James Comey. Did you see? These are bizarre comments James Comey made yesterday at a cyber security conference outside San Francisco. By the way, does anybody find it strange that Comey is still out there weighing in on all this? He’s been fired. He has been repudiated. He was discredited in a lot of this. Yet he’s still out there. Clapper’s still out there. Brennan’s still… Well, Brennan’s kind of gone underground.
But Comey was at a cyber security conference outside San Francisco. He got a question about Barr’s comments about spying during his hearing and testimony on Wednesday. “Oh, I think there was spying.” Comey claimed again. He said, “When I hear that kind of language used, it’s concerning, because the FBI, the Department of Justice conduct court-ordered electronic surveillance. I’ve never thought of that as spying.”
Electronic surveillance? What is he talking about? If electronic surveillance is not spying… It doesn’t matter if it’s court-ordered or not, doesn’t matter if it’s court-authorized or not. It’s still spying. The vast majority of the spying in the world is authorized by some government or another. These people know, folks. I’m telling you, they know, and they are quaking in their boots. And you know another reason, you know another way you can tell?
Here comes Barr at his testimony on Wednesday. In response to a question, he says, “Oh, yeah. Yeah. I think there was spying going on,” and what was the reaction to it? “You can’t say that! (sputtering) That’s outrageous. That is off the charts! That’s beyond the pale! That’s beneath the dignity of the office! You can’t say the FBI was spying!” As my friend Andy McCarthy pointed out, these are the same people who were calling Trump a traitor. They were calling Trump a Russian agent.
They were calling Trump Adolf Hitler! So they can run around and they can say that Trump is a traitor, that Trump is a foreign agent, that Trump is a Russian spy, that Putin is running and controlling Trump, but Barr cannot say what the FBI was doing was spying? I think a lot of people are properly quaking in their boots about now. But it is especially preposterous to hear Comey claim that his FBI went to the FISA court four times for warrants to spy on Carter Page using a political opposition research document created by the presidential opponent of Donald Trump.
Does Comey not know that foreign intelligence surveillance, FISA, the Foreign Intelligence Services court, is what it is. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, FISA. Does he not know that’s a synonym for spying? “What is he talking about? He know they’ve been caught. (sputtering) I — I — I never consider spying. Spying, such a despicable word. We don’t — we don’t spy. We do court-ordered surveillance.” Maybe Comey only believes in spying when you spy on foreigners. When you spy on a political opponent’s campaign, maybe I guess that’s okay.
Or maybe when you spy-on-U.S. Naval Academy graduate who had even worked for the FBI as an informant, I guess that’s okay. That would be Carter Page. I’ll tell you, folks, it’s… I just have this sense. You know, and I’m kind of going out on a limb here because I don’t have any knowledge to back this up. I just have the sense that Barr and everybody here is just really, really serious about this, because everybody paying any attention to this has got to be fully aware of the absolute over-the-top outrage this was.

Comey should be hanged for treason. He attempted a coup that failed on the will of the people and he should pay.
Here’s the problem with their spying....They forgot to tell Trump.
right. it wasn’t actual spying spying, but just plain ol’ surveillance ...

There needs to be a Nurenburg style trial to get to the bottom of all this.
This treason was vast and deep

(The charisma of Reagan + the vision of Jefferson + the patriotism of Washington = Trump)
Maybe they should have a couple of FBI agents go question him, four or five times, not keeping any notes are any records and then come back and charge him with lying to the FBI and obstruction of justice. /s

(I am not an expert in anything, and my opinion is just that, an opinion. I may be wrong.)
No spying on Trump, only surveillance per Comey. This will be the new media talking point. It will be fun watching the media tie themselves in knots explaining the difference.
Taking him literally, Comey didn’t spy on Trump or anyone else; he just facilitated the spying.

And what of the Human Intelligence employed against Team Trump? That is good Statecraft. As well as his forgetting about the CIA human intelligence also employed.... Sorry Jim (jame-ski), he dead.

He was astonished that electronic eavesdropping would be considered “spying”! And Bill Preisap, FBI Counter Intelligence chief, said the FBI does not spy on Americans. Only foreign entities spy!
