The plot thickens…The Obama administration didn’t want Comey to publish an op-ed about Russian “meddling”…Hummm Could it be because they have zero, zip, nada on so-called Russian meddling and didn’t want anyone to know they were spying on Trump and staff?
Please listen to what Mark Levin had to say last night on this entire “Russian meddling” topic – VERY GOOD COMMENTARY! This is what the media and the Democrats don’t want you to know:
The bottom line is that the FBI Director is supposed to be nonpartisan yet it Comey was prepared to do an op-ed for the Obama administration? Since when is this ok? Trump needs to fire Comey ASAP!
FBI Director James Comey was reportedly prepared to write an op-ed over the summer about information on Russia’s influence in the U.S. presidential election, but Obama administration officials blocked him from writing the piece.
Newsweek, citing two unnamed sources, reported Wednesday that Comey pitched the idea in the White House’s situation room sometime between June and July.
The source told the magazine there was a draft of the proposed op-ed. Comey reportedly “held up a piece of paper in a meeting and said, ‘I want to go forward, what do people think of this?’” He made the pitch in front of Secretary of State John Kerry and Attorney General Loretta Lynch, the report said.
Comey would likely have pitched the op-ed to The New York Times.
DEMOCRATS ON INTEL COMMITTEE CONTINUE THEIR ASSERTION OF RUSSIAN “MEDDLING” WHEN THERE WAS ZERO EVIDENCE OF IT:
The question of collusion between Russian interests and Trump’s campaign continues, despite repeated assertions by the president’s spokesman that no link exists and no evidence emerging to show complicity
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer dismissed inquiries about the matter Tuesday, saying “every single person who’s been briefed on this, as I’ve said ad nauseam from this podium … have been very clear that there is no connection between the president or the staff here and anyone doing anything with Russia.”
SENATE INTEL INCLUDING MARK WARNER WANT YOU TO LOOK AT THE SHINY OBJECT OVER HERE…DISTRACT, DISTRACT, DISTRACT FROM THE REAL CRIME OF SPYING ON AMERICANS:
Leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee announced Wednesday they are expanding their investigation of Russia’s interference in the U.S. presidential campaign and beyond, vowing to remain independent and “get to the bottom of this” – amid mounting controversy over a similar probe on the House side.
The senators announced they are now scheduling interviews and reviewing thousands of sensitive documents, and are prepared to issue subpoenas if necessary.
Michael Flynn was fired as national security adviser after it emerged he lied about pre-inauguration contacts with a Russian official. As for “staff here” being in the clear, as Spicer put it, they have neither been identified as targets of the investigations nor ruled out.
A close adviser to Trump, son-in-law Jared Kushner, has agreed to talk to lawmakers about the Russia allegations. Other Trump associates have volunteered to be interviewed by the House and Senate intelligence committees as well.
