    FULL TITLE: IG Report: James Comey Passed Private Conversation with Trump to FBI Team Investigating Russia Collusion A report released on Thursday by the Justice Department’s inspector general provides new context to disgraced former FBI Director James Comey’s infamous classified briefing to then President-elect Donald Trump about “salacious” material inside the anti-Trump dossier. The IG report relates that prior to the briefing, FBI members on Comey’s team discussed the need to memorialize the exchanges between Comey and Trump during the private January 6, 2017 briefing in Trump Tower just in case Trump made statements relevant to the agency’s Russia probe....

    Barr stated: "The thing that’s interesting about this is that this was handled at a very senior level of these departments. It wasn’t handled in the ordinary way that investigations or counterintelligence activities are conducted. It was sort of an ad hoc, small group — and most of these people are no longer with the FBI or the CIA or the other agencies involved." They worked exclusively for two groups of “customers,” officials said. The first was Obama and fewer than 14 senior officials in government. The second was a team of operations specialists at the CIA, NSA and FBI...

Di Genova especially mocked the disgraced former FBI director,...

    Former FBI Director James Comey used his personal Gmail account to conduct official bureau business, the Justice Department Inspector General’s report concludes. According to the report: On November 8, 2016, Comey forwarded to his personal email account from his unclassified FBI account a proposed post-election message for all FBI employees that was entitled “Midyear thoughts.” This document summarized Comey’s reasoning for notifying Congress about the reactivation of the Midyear investigation. In late December 2016, Comey forwarded to his personal email account from his unclassified FBI account multiple drafts of a proposed year-end message to FBI employees. On December 30, 2016,...

  • BREAKING: E-mails Show FBI Brass Discussed Dossier Briefing Details With CNN

    Newly revealed e-mails show that former Federal Bureau Investigation (FBI) deputy director Andrew McCabe was keenly aware of CNN’s internal understanding of a secret briefing about the infamous Steele dossier, days before CNN published any stories on the matter. The e-mails, which were obtained by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), also reveal that top officials used coded language to refer to the salacious and unverified allegations made by Steele. Former FBI director James Comey briefed then-President-Elect Donald Trump on January 6, 2017, on at least one unproven allegation contained in Steele’s dossier, which was jointly funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign...
  • Byron York: New revelations shed light on Comey, Trump, and that 'loyalty' demand

    There was great indignation and much disapproval last year when it was reported that President Trump had asked then-FBI Director James Comey for "loyalty." Such a request, it was said, was more characteristic of a mob boss than a president -- "mob boss" being a phrase Comey himself would use in a book whose title (A Higher Loyalty) he took from the president's request. Now, Comey's book and the revelations it has triggered are casting new light on the "loyalty" issue -- a light that makes Trump's position look far more understandable. The short version is this: In Trump's first...

    Carter Page, the American financial consultant who was tangentially and briefly associated with Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, told Breitbart News the controversial, largely discredited 35-page “dodgy dossier” served as the “central foundation” for the FBI’s extensive questioning of him about alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. On Monday, the Washington Post first reported that FBI agents repeatedly questioned Page for about ten hours over a series of five meetings in March about the Russia narrative. advertisement “Both the blessing and the curse of all my discussions with the FBI rested on the fact that the Dodgy Dossier...

    The official statement (pdf.) from James Comey, to be read during the hearing tomorrow, has bombshells — but they are helpful to Donald Trump. The statement is embedded in full at the bottom of this post. Comey confirms — contrary to media reports — that he told Trump that Trump was not personally under investigation. Comey also paints a picture of Trump trying to put in a good word for Michael Flynn, but there is no suggestion that anything rising to the level of obstruction of justice was said. Also, Comey made clear that those comments did not relate to...

    SNIPS On January 6, 2017, the U.S. Intelligence Community issued an “Intelligence Community Assessment” (ICA) that found Russia deliberately interfered in the 2016 presidential election to benefit Trump’s candidacy.  The news media and Trump critics have claimed this assessment ended the debate on this issue because it was the unanimous and objective conclusion of “all 17” U.S. Intelligence Agencies.  I also contended in my January article that the January 6 ICA was suspicious because it reached unusually clear judgments on a politically explosive issue with no dissenting views.  I previously thought the ICA’s unambiguous, dissent-free judgments were the result...
