As the media continues their fit of hysterics over a memo that an anonymous person supposedly saw and told the New York Times about, the liberal media is conveniently forgetting to mention that former FBI Director James Comey already testified under oath that there was no obstruction from the White House.
The memo, and latest tool in the political hit job against the will of voters, allegedly states that Trump had told Comey during a meeting in February that he hoped he would get over the witch hunt against General Mike Flynn.
However, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on FBI oversight on May 3, Comey himself admit that there had been no politically motivated interference during his tenure.
When asked by Senator Mazie Hirono if the Attorney General or senior officials at the Department of Justice could halt an FBI investigation that they do not agree with, Comey responded that they could, in theory. He added that during his time at the FBI, he was never in a situation where he was told to stop an investigation for political purposes.

“It would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that — without an appropriate purpose. I mean where oftentimes they give us opinions that we don’t see a case there and so you ought to stop investing resources in it. But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal. It’s not happened in my experience,” Comey testified before the Senate.
The statement the Times reported, if true, was also not serious enough for Comey to report the situation to the Attorney General or Department of Justice.
So which is it? Did the Times report fake news handed to them by someone with an agenda, or did Comey lie to the Senate?
Judging by the New York Times’ rush to publish unsubstantiated claims as fact in recent times, the first option would be a reasonable assumption.
Earlier this month, the Times, quoting three unnamed “Congressional officials,” alleged that Comey went to Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, for additional funds. They noted that Rosenstein is also the one who wrote the Justice Department memo that supported Comey’s firing.
Rosenstein is the highest official involved in the Russian investigation, as Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself.
Interestingly, Sarah Isgur Flores, the director of public affairs at the Department of Justice, flatly denied that Comey asked for more money or more resources — and unlike the Times’ sources, she was willing to go on record with her name.
Sarah Isgur Flores at DOJ flatly denies Comey asked for more money or more resources. Completely false, she says.

To add insult to the fake news’ injury, Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe also denied their accusation.
McCabe: "I strongly believe the Russia investigation is adequately resourced."

Comey's #2 unequivocally states that, contrary to widespread reports, FBI did not ask for more funding for Trump Russia probe before firing

Given the Times’ recent track record with anonymous sources, perhaps it is time for the America to demand full documents or recordings to accompany their wild tales, at least until they can earn back the trust of the public.
POLL: 52% of Republicans Believe President Trump Rightfully Won the 2020 Presidential Election
Standing by the President.
More than half of national Republican voters recognize President Donald Trump as the legitimate victor of the 2020 Presidential election, according to a new poll from Reuters.
The poll questioned national voters on their impressions of the election. 73% of respondents recognized that Joe Biden “won,” but when asked which candidate “rightfully won,” Republican voters were far more skeptical. 52% of Republicans indicated that Donald Trump was the rightful victor of the 2020 election.
55% of voters described the 2020 election as “legitimate and accurate,” down 7% from the 62% of Americans who described the 2016 election as such. 28% expressly identified the election outcome as the product of “illegal voting or election rigging,” up 12% from 2016.
Even some Democrats and Independents expressed concerns over election integrity. 16% of Democrats and 33% of Independents said they were concerned over election rigging, with a strong majority of 68% of Republicans agreeing.
Democrats have largely memory-holed years of election conspiracy theories alleging wide-ranging interference plots on the part of the Russian Federation, now claiming that questioning the veracity of election results is a slap in the face to American democracy.
The mainstream media continually insists that there’s nothing to see and no reason to be skeptical of the election processes- which eroded a strong lead for Donald Trump days after the election. However, the people don’t seem so easily convinced.
