Congress

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.

Petition to Expel Maxine Waters from Congress Reaches 100,000 Signatures

Published

on

A petition on the official White House government website to expel Congresswoman Maxine Waters from the House of Representatives reached 100,000 signatures on Thursday. The petition, hosted through the ‘We the People’ function of the White House’s website established in 2011, reached the necessary amount of signatures required to receive an official response from the Executive Branch under the loosely-followed rules of the platform.

The petition made it clear that those who signed were appropriately calling upon Congress to act, as expulsion from the House of Representatives would require a 2/3rds majority of U.S Representatives to vote for it. The White House potentially could call upon Speaker of the House Paul Ryan to allow a vote on the expulsion.

The petition made its case for expulsion on the basis of Waters’ “calling for attacks and violence against all Trump officials,” in reference to Waters’ remarks at an open borders rally, when she told progressive agitators that “if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” Ironically enough, Waters’ demand that her followers badger and harass Trump administration personnel backfired badly, finding herself in turn overwhelmed with armies of conservative patriots demanding her impeachment during town halls held in her Los Angeles congressional district. Waters had also been confronted by Big League Politics’ Laura Loomer, and refused to retract her demands for the harassment of Trump supporters.

The President himself could be interested in calling for expulsion proceedings for Waters, based upon his own statements in regards to her history of aggressive, belligerent calls for personal attacks against her political opponents. In his most recent Montana rally, the President described Waters as being a “low IQ individual,” speculating that her IQ was probably somewhere around the mid-60’s. It’s even possible that some Congressional Democrats would find themselves relieved to be rid of one of the most deranged, insane, and hateful Members of Congress ever to serve in the House, allowing a vote on Water’s expulsion to reach a wide bipartisan majority.
