    President Donald Trump stayed up late on Friday night to spike the football on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who was fired only two days before he would have officially retired and been eligible for a government pension. But McCabe wasn’t the only target of the president’s tweet. “Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI,” Trump tweeted. “A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of...

    In two tweets on Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump returned to the subject of former FBI Director James Comey, once again showing frustration with his own Justice Department. "Wow, FBI confirms report that James Comey drafted letter exonerating Crooked Hillary Clinton long before investigation was complete. Many people not interviewed, including Clinton herself. Comey stated under oath that he didn't do this-obviously a fix? Where is Justice Dept?" Trump asked. "As it has turned out, James Comey lied and leaked and totally protected Hillary Clinton. He was the best thing that ever happened to her!" Trump added in a third...

    Government lawyers asked a judge Friday to deny CNN's request to force the FBI to publicly disclose former FBI Director James Comey's memos documenting his interactions with President Trump about the Russia investigation.The news network made the case in a lawsuit filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in June that there was high public interest in Comey's memos and that the notes were not classified, as insisted by Comey himself in testimony. CNN, along with other outlets and watchdog groups, had requested the memos under the Freedom of Information Act.However, a report from CNN on...

    The Justice Department has provided special counsel Robert Mueller with an early draft of a letter detailing President Trump's rationale for firing former FBI Director James Comey, The New York Times reported Friday. The May letter, written by Trump and adviser Stephen Miller, was ultimately blocked by White House counsel Don McGahn, who believed some of its contents were problematic. Instead, a different letter written by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was sent, pinning the dismissal on Comey's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server. Mueller is currently conducting a wide-ranging investigation into Russian interference in the...
  • Trump Throws Out Bombshell Accusation That Comey Tried to Hold Dirt Over His Head

    Law Newz ^ | July 19, 2017 | Rachel Stockman
    In a wide ranging interview with The New York Times, Trump threw his Attorney General Jeffrey Sessions under the bus for deciding to recuse himself from the Russia probe. A decision Trump called “very unfair” to the president. But, maybe even more shocking, he claims that FBI Director James Comey tried to hold the salacious dossier over his head, in order to gain “leverage” over him. It had previously been reported that when administration officials briefed the president at Trump Tower in January, Comey pulled him aside and told him about the details of the now infamous dossier which included...
  • ‘That Is So Illegal:’ Trump Targets Comey For Possible Mishandling Of Classified Info

    President Donald Trump targeted former FBI Director James Comey Monday for allegedly including classified information in personal memos describing his conversations with the president. Trump’s tweet follows a late Sunday night report from The Hill that four of nine Comey memos included classified information at the secret or confidential level. Comey’s removal of classified information from his office could put him in breach of FBI protocols that clearly state FBI agents “will not reveal, by any means, any information or material from or related to FBI files or any other information acquired by virtue of my official employment to any...

    The Senate Judiciary Committee is planning on opening an investigation into the events surrounding President Donald Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey, The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday. The investigation could potentially examine whether the president interfered in the ongoing Russia investigation by moving to fire Comey. “The Judiciary Committee has an obligation to fully investigate any alleged improper partisan interference in law enforcement investigations,” Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said in a letter announcing the move. “It is my view that fully investigating the facts, circumstances, and rationale for Mr. Comey’s removal will provide us the opportunity...

    Dropping the Hammer on Comey... Brilliant! There are very few crime/mystery novels that approach this true story for compelling drama, intrigue and brinkmanship (with the nation in the balance). Don’t believe the fake-media story that Trump made a mistake or huge gaffe by firing Comey. Don’t believe the media narrative from the left that it was an attempt to silence Comey from some investigation into Trump. Don’t believe the RINO narrative that Comey is a good guy just trying to do his job in terrible circumstances and the timing was bad. Don’t believe the lie that Comey was admired and...

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday he had not discussed the firing of the former FBI Director James Comey with U.S. President Donald Trump, Interfax news agency reported. "We did not touch this issue at all," Interfax quoted Lavrov as saying. The New York Times has reported that Trump told Lavrov and Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak at a White House meeting last week that firing Comey relieved "great pressure" the president faced from a law-enforcement probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
  • Trump fu traps James Comey?

    05/14/2017 5:46:00 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 35 replies ^ | James Lewis
    Interesting how things come around again. Anyway, the other day, Trump needed to know if Comey was one of the big leakers trying to destroy him. Because the NYT and WaPo and a thousand other media types have made no secret of their bloodlust when it comes to destroying one Donald Trump, duly elected president of the United States. I'll bet that Trump, who knows how to confuse liberals with his words, said something that was almost impeachable, but not quite. But nobody is going to confess to taping it, because that would also be illegal. So Comey snaps at...

    President Donald Trump on Thursday called James Comey, the FBI chief he fired, a "showboat" and "grandstander" and said in a NBC-TV interview he would have dismissed him even if officials at the Justice Department had not recommended it. "He's a showboat. He's a grandstander. The FBI has been in turmoil," Trump told NBC. "I was going to fire Comey. My decision," Trump said. "I was going to fire regardless of recommendation."

Comey, told his top agents from around the country that he had been asked by President Trump to stay on the job running the federal government’s top law enforcement agency, The New York Times reports, according to people familiar with the matter. The political fallout from this decision will make the news cycle buzz today, since Hillary Clinton, the mainstream media, and many Democrats blame Mr. Comey for her defeat, and it is not clear whether she would have kept him on had she won. But a decision to retain Mr. Comey would...
