EMAILS: FBI Told Comey To Ask Mueller For Advice Before Testifying

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) told James Comey to confer with Robert Mueller’s office before Comey testified in front of Congress.

This blatant act of collusion should invalidate the entire Robert Mueller investigation and all of Comey’s claims — in addition to the fact that Comey leaked classified information to the press and lied about it.

Judicial Watch comes up with the goods:

At the hearing, Comey revealed that he had intentionally leaked material from a memo allegedly documenting a meeting with President Trump in order to help assure the appointment of a special counsel.

I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter. Didn’t do it myself, for a variety of reasons. But I asked him to, because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.

The DOJ and FBI have stated that Comey’s leaks were unauthorized and compared the disclosures to Wikileaks.
The documents obtained by Judicial Watch are the first to reveal that high-ranking FBI officials helped Comey coordinate his testimony with Mueller.

Judicial Watch obtained the documents in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the DOJ on January 31, 2018 (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-00220)). The lawsuit was filed after the DOJ failed to respond to an August 14, 2017 FOIA request seeking:

All records of communications between the FBI and Comey prior to and regarding Comey’s testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on June 8, 2017.
All records of communications between the FBI and Comey relating to an upcoming book to be authored by Comey and published.

All records, including but not limited to forms completed by Comey, relating to the requirement for prepublication review by the FBI of any book to be authored by Comey with the intent to be published or otherwise publicly available.

On May 17, 2017, Comey received notices to appear before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee.

An email chain dated May 18 and 19, 2017, with the subject line “Future testimony” shows then-FBI Chief of Staff James Rybicki, then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and Assistant Director Gregory Brower, Comey and others discussing Comey’s upcoming testimony…

Judicial Watch passage ends

Big League Politics reported:

In his new book, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) admits that he handed over the DNC-funded anti-Trump Russia dossier to then FBI Director James Comey. He did it because in his mind, “duty demanded” it, and stated that “anybody who doesn’t like it can go to hell.”

McCain providing the dossier to Comey was an instrumental move to getting it released to the public. After receiving the dossier, Comey briefed President Trump on the contents of it. It was that briefing, in which President Trump acknowledged it existed, that gave enough credibility to Buzzfeed to release the dossier in its entirety.

This proves that John McCain was instrumental in starting the slow motion Russian Witch Hunt meant to overthrow a duly elected President.

The dossier, which was compiled by former British Spy Christopher Steele, and funded by the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign, contained a number of salacious claims. The most charged claim had to do with the President paying prostitutes to urinate on his hotel bed while on a visit to Moscow. Despite media outlets like CNN covering those claims, there has never been any proof to back them, and Trump has continually denied…
