Sad Day For Dems: Comey Reveals More Wrongdoing By Obama Admin Than Trump’s

Published

on

Testifying before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on Thursday, former FBI Director James Comey revealed more obstruction from the Obama administration than President Donald Trump’s.

Comey testified that Loretta Lynch, who was the attorney general under Barack Obama, had successfully pressured him into downplaying and minimizing the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails to the public.

Lynch, according to Comey, had demanded that he refer to the probe as a “matter” instead of an investigation, when he went public with confirming that the agency was involved.

“I wanted to know, was she going to authorize us to confirm we had an investigation, and she said, ‘Yes, but don’t call it that, call it a matter,'” Comey said. “And I said, ‘Why would I do that?’ And she said, ‘Just call it a matter.'”

The former FBI director stated that he was uncomfortable with what she had asked him to say, because it was false — and because it was exactly how the Clinton campaign had been attempting to spin it.

“It concerned me because that language tracked the way the campaign was talking about the FBI’s work and that’s concerning,” Comey testified.

“I don’t know whether it was intentional or not but it gave the impression that the attorney general [Lynch] was looking to align the way we talked about our work with the way the political campaign was describing the same activity, which was inaccurate,” he continued.

Ultimately, Comey went along with Lynch’s request — as it “wasn’t a hill worth dying on.” The February 2016 letter confirming the investigation referred to it as “matters related to former Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server.”

Comey also admit that Lynch’s pressure to downplay the situation, and her infamous meeting with Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac, were behind his press conference announcing that he would not be recommending charges.

When asked if he believed Lynch had a conflict of interest in the case, Comey stated “that’s fair.”

On the other hand, Comey testified that President Donald Trump never asked him to halt the agency’s investigation into Russian interference.

Democrats have been relentlessly demanding that Trump had engaged in obstruction of justice, but their theories have once again by shattered. Today’s disappointment for “Never Trumpers” and Democrats came from one simple question asked by Republican Senator Richard Burr.

“Did the president at any time ask you to stop the FBI investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 U.S. elections?” Burr, chairman of the committee, asked Comey.

“Not to my understanding, no.” Comey responded.

When asked if any member of the Trump administration asked him to cease the investigation, Comey also responded “no.”

It is interesting how Comey did not have any memos to leak to the press about Lynch — despite testifying that she had a conflict of interest and appeared to be working with the Clinton campaign on messaging.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time

The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.

She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.

“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.

“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.

Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.

“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.

Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.

“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.

President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
