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.
Supreme Court Contender Amy Coney Barrett Visits White House as Trump Prepares to Announce Pick
She’s reportedly the frontrunner.
Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.
Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.
Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.
President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.
Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.
Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.
