Comey: Trump White House 'lied' about the FBI



Ex-FBI chief James Comey told Congress that the Trump administration's comments about him and the FBI were "lies plain and simple".

Mr Comey told a Senate committee they were wrong to denigrate the agency and its leadership.

He was also "confused" by the "shifting explanations" for his sacking, which came as he led a probe into any links between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

President Donald Trump later said he never sought to impede the inquiry.

Mr Trump's attorney, Marc Kasowitz, said in a statement Mr Comey's testimony "finally confirmed publicly" that the president was not under investigation as part of any probe in Russian political meddling.

In the statement, Mr Trump also denied asking Mr Comey for his loyalty or to drop an investigation into fired national security adviser Michael Flynn during private meetings.

In his testimony, Mr Comey said Mr Trump had repeatedly told him he was doing a "great" job.

He also suggested he was fired to "change the way the Russia investigation was being conducted".

The former FBI boss remained largely composed throughout almost three hours of testimony but became impassioned when delivering his opening remarks.

He told the panel that the White House "chose to defame me, and more importantly the FBI" by claiming the agency was "poorly led".

"Those were lies, plain and simple. And I'm so sorry that the FBI workforce had to hear them," he continued.

What's so surprising? Any of us don't place Trump would have done exactly the same. This can be attributed to the instinct of self-preservation. In other countries on such details nobody would pay attention. I do not condone Trump, but I for objectivity.

The Ex FBI chief is just trying to pay Trump back for firing him and these Liberals will jump at any chance to crucify Trump, I think he should release the tapes of the conversation he had with Trump so that we put all of this to rest. But the Democrats should remember that this is the same person who's last minute decision to bring up the email server issue may have cost Hilary the presidency if not for her constant lies.

Comey said that "someone" said he was a poor leader, and the FBI was in disarray. Comey thinks that part was a lie.  Grin

Comey should be thanking Trump for saving his life. Had Hillary been elected as the president of the United States in 2016, then James Comey would have been just another entry in the long list, now called the "Clinton body count".

Good morning forum ,;)

Only one topic on the most watched Congressional testimony in history. With only 5 responses. How very peculiar Wink

Let's begin.

This is pretty sobering stuff. If Comeys allegations are true, there is a distant case for obstruction, which to me is a lower bar than impeachment and more feasible.

Some takeaways:
1) Trump is fucked, Comey planned this:
The fact that Comey literally stepped outside the meeting and started making a memo should indicate this may have been a contingency plan, that is, he came into interaction with Trump anticipating some bullshit. To me, it seems like his memo was trying to suggest obstruction, but he never came flat out and said it. That he has so prepared himself for this up to this point, I feel he may have left additional insurance in the firm of something else. He doesn't seem like a single contingency guy, he seems like a Plan Z type of dude.


2) Sessions and Pence most likely knew about Flynn.
Yates knew, Yates told, Yates got fired. Doesn't look good. And if Sessions had a third, undisclosed meeting with Russia, he is also fucked, he perjured himself. Notice Trump surrogates seem to be the whipping boys/albatross in all this so far. You can't sugar coat this; if they can prove it, Pence will be caught in a serious lie, and Sessions will have to recuse himself from his job, LOL. A standing AG commiting perjury, imagine that.

3) The reluctance of the other testifiers to say if Trump had tried the same tactic with them is interesting.
They clammed up and did the 'closed chamber discussion' wink. Also interesting that everyone had to leave the room. It will actually look better if Trump does this often; just doing it to Comey will look suspicious.

4) Comey most likely isn't lying.
Despite Trump's condemation, Comey has little reason to have fabricated this. He had the piece of mind to start the memos before he got fired. Which was unknown priori, so it would be hard to attribute this to revenge. Essentially, all the testimony we heard were based of of this interactions before he got canned,  this happened before he would have a motivation to harm Trump.

5) There are no tapes, and if there are tapes, they won't help Trump.

6) Trump is dead and gone if he testifies under oath.
If you value your leader, do not allow him to take the stand in his own defence. Y'all should probably smash his phone as well Wink

7) 'Comey is a leaker' rhetoric isn't legally defensible.
See popular legal opinion, I had to digest soooo much bi partisan op Ed to research this. I think it will be a hard case, and I don't think the Justice Dept is going to antagonize Comey like this. Also, lots of actually legal reasons like the fact he was fired made the memos personal


The Ex FBI chief is just trying to pay Trump back for firing him and these Liberals will jump at any chance to crucify Trump, I think he should release the tapes of the conversation he had with Trump so that we put all of this to rest. But the Democrats should remember that this is the same person who's last minute decision to bring up the email server issue may have cost Hilary the presidency if not for her constant lies.

I disagree. He didn't know he was going to get fired, but he did all that notation and redundant storage for no reason? He didn't make this up after the fact we know that for certain. He even leaked his own documents. Essentially, he told enough people ahead of time about his suspicions that he covered his ass ahead of time.

As for Hillary, I'm actually glad she lost at this point.  If she had won, I see she wouldn't have been able to do shit anyway. Better the GOP eats every bit of this, and right before 2018. Let it happen.

Comey said that "someone" said he was a poor leader, and the FBI was in disarray. Comey thinks that part was a lie.  Grin

Comey is an idiot

I missed this. I though he specifically did not agree the FBI was in disarray.



Comey should be thanking Trump for saving his life. Had Hillary been elected as the president of the United States in 2016, then James Comey would have been just another entry in the long list, now called the "Clinton body count".

Don't disagree with that at all, if you mean job and not his actual vitality. Because as bad as as y'all think the Clintons are, with their supernatural power gleaned from drinking the blood of children,  Comey is a lot more connected due to his job as Director of the FBI. You can't vanish a person like this. He was a G Man.

What's so surprising? Any of us don't place Trump would have done exactly the same. This can be attributed to the instinct of self-preservation. In other countries on such details nobody would pay attention. I do not condone Trump, but I for objectivity.

What's so surprising about the President possibly obstructing Justice? And Naw, we wouldnt have, at least not like that. You gotta be quicker than point blank asking for something illegal after you ask to be in the room alone with a cop, the cop . So no, I don't think most politicians that had experience would have tried this, and if this seemed normative to you, please refrain from holding a public office Wink you would be part of that 'swamp' thing Wink

Come on y'all, defend your POTUS. He needs your help, badly.

I had mentally prepared myself to refute all the Breitbart, infowars and Dailly Caller talking points
 Don't disappoint me.

Here, I'll make it juicy.  Hillary did 9/11. Wink

She was one of the hijackers. I shit you not.

We all watched as the new head of the FBI was introduced. But it's still interesting that the comma is dismissed and why the former leader was dismissed by this organization. Is it really because there was a scandal about Russia's attachment to the US presidential elections?

Who really even knows at this point, we're going into the realm of he said he said sort of thing and the only thing that's going to draw the line on the truth is if either one of them had been recording each other. Trump said he had recordings of the conversations with Comey, though who knows if this was just a ploy by him to try to get Comey to be scared and come out with a different side of the story-- who knows.

There are three sides to this story, what Comey Said, what Trump Said, and what the truth heard. Sad, but this is what politics has come to.

Hoping for some real news on this and not the one-sided MSMs side, I would really love to see a time where a new news company rises up due to them staying completely independent.

I think that it fired correctly. I have always believed that the FBI is very serious structure. Why there is still no concrete evidence of Russian intervention in the American elections, why is there no evidence of communication with the Russian Trump. So many rumors and no specifics.

There is indeed evidence of Russian interference in our election. You may not believe the June/July ahared intel assesment, but the Reality Winner leaks concretely prove that there is intelligence we simply haven't seen yet. The additional leaks about the 29 state interference is most likely an actual leaked intel report. But I will concede it has not been verified yet. The arrest and subsequent prosecution of Miss Winner (such a not apt name, LOL) makes it obvious that the document she leaked was legitimate.

You are absolutely correct about there not being concrete evidence of collusion, though.
