CNN “fact checked” President Trump on Thursday for referencing a story they initially reported on regarding former FBI director James Comey leaking information out to the public during his days as a deep state spook.

The fake news leader attempted to fact check Trump based on an exchange he had with Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) back in May 2017.

“It is frustrating when the FBI refuses to answer this committee’s questions, but leaks relevant information to the media. In other words, they don’t talk to us, but somebody talks to the media. Director Comey, have you ever been an anonymous source in news reports about matters relating to the Trump investigation or the Clinton investigation?” Grassley said to Comey.

“Never,” replied Comey.

“Question two, relatively related: have you ever authorized someone else at the FBI to be an anonymous source in news reports about the Trump investigation or the Clinton investigation?” Grassley asked Comey.

“No,” said Comey.

“Has any classified information relating to President Trump or his association — associates been declassified and shared with the media?” Grassley asked Comey.

“Not to my knowledge,” Comey said.

However, Comey eventually admitted to making leaks in June 2017, and CNN reported on it at the time.

“Former FBI Director James Comey testified Thursday that he orchestrated the leak of accounts of conversations with President Donald Trump because he thought it might lead to the appointment of a special prosecutor to lead the Russia investigation,” CNN reported.

“The revelation emerged in a blockbuster Senate intelligence committee hearing, one of the most significant moments yet in the saga over Russia’s role in the 2016 election, the subsequent investigation and how it led to the firing of Comey by the President in an episode that has cast a deep shadow over the administration,” they added.

“My judgment was that I needed to get that out into the public square,” he said, adding that he committed the leak because he “thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”

“Lordy, I hope there are tapes,” Comey said.

Trump’s lawyer Marc Kasowitz noted discrepancies in Comey’s story at the time.

“Although Mr. Comey testified he only leaked the memos in response to a tweet, the public record reveals that The New York Times was quoting from these memos the day before the referenced tweet, which belies Mr. Comey’s excuse for this unauthorized disclosure of privileged information and appears to entirely retaliatory,” Kasowitz said.

“We will leave it the appropriate authorities to determine whether these leaks should be investigated along with all those others being investigated,” he added.

The fake news is now correcting President Trump for citing reports that they have made in the past, as they are desperate to malign him following his acquittal and complete vindication.

Fake News Hacks Re-Tool ‘Russian Collusion’ Hoax to Smear Both President Trump and Bernie Sanders

The establishment desperately wants to suppress populism.

Published

on

The evil Russian bogeyman is back again, following likely deep state leaks indicating that Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to support President Donald Trump as well as Democrat presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders in 2020.

The Washington Post reported today that Sanders has been briefed about how the evil Rooskies are supporting him:

U.S. officials have told Sen. Bernie Sanders that Russia is attempting to help his presidential campaign as part of an effort to interfere with the Democratic contest, according to people familiar with the matter.

President Trump and lawmakers on Capitol Hill have also been informed about the Russian assistance to the Vermont senator, according to people familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence…

“I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president,” Sanders said in a statement to The Washington Post. “My message to Putin is clear: Stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.”

… Also this week, a senior U.S. intelligence official said Russia had “developed a preference” for Trump in the 2020 campaign — an assessment that infuriated the president. Trump lambasted his acting intelligence director, Joseph Maguire, and DNI staff for sharing that information with lawmakers, believing that Democrats would use it to hurt Trump in the election.

Considering Trump will be the Republican nominee for president and Sanders is the front-runner to win the Democrat nomination to face him, it is hard to conceive how Putin could help both men win office. But that hasn’t stopped the fake news from pushing the hysterics yet again, as they work to foment neo-McCarthyism.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump refuses to play ball with the fake news media and justify their phony concerns about the Russians.

“I was told a week ago — they said, ‘you know they’re trying to start a rumor,'” Trump said at a “Keep America Great” rally in Las Vegas on Thursday night.

“It’s disinformation — that’s the only thing they’re good at, they’re not good at anything else, the get-nothing, the do-nothing Democrats — that Putin wants to make sure I get elected,” he said.

Trump also threw a little fuel in the fire to create more paranoia within the deranged Dems about the possibility of Bernie being a Russian asset.

“Doesn’t he want to see who the Democrats are gonna be? Wouldn’t he rather have, say, Bernie? ” Trump said.

The Russian hysteria didn’t work the first time they tried it, and it is not likely to work this time around as nobody believes the lies of the fake news, Democrats and deep state anymore.
