If there were a real case, with a real prosecutor and detectives working the investigation, NONE of what you would be seeing would happen. The establishment is treating Comey as a witness and an investigator, rather than a potential target for lying to Congress or perhaps leaking confidential information. There is a report that Comey met with Mueller before his testimony in Congress. Now we hear that testimony is cancelled. Why? Because keeping lies straight is getting difficult.
Former FBI Director James Comey will speak privately with Robert Mueller, special prosecutor in the Russia probe, prior to testifying in public before the House or the Senate.
House Oversight Committee Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said that decision of Comey’s means he would delay a hearing he had planned for this week.
“Spoke with Comey. He wants to speak with special counsel prior to public testimony. Hearing Wed postponed,” Chaffetz tweeted. Comey was also slated to talk to the Senate Intelligence Committee.
As noted before, Comey is Mueller’s protege. They are buds. What did Mueller say to Comey to make Comey change his plans?
Another proven liar is John Brennan, who- from what I gather- testified with new information or an opinion on a previously discussed issue. In a real case, that witness would be torn apart by the defense. Here’s the problem with Brennan, he’s a liar trying to thread his way through a very dangerous landscape. One misstep and he’s proven- again- as a person willing to lie to protect himself and his allies. Gowdy did his best to make Brennan stumble. Which might have happened.
Today former CIA Director John Brennan testified to congress on the Russian counter-intelligence operation which began in July 2016. Today, John Brennan completely contradicted the March 20th, 2017, testimony of former FBI Director James Comey.
So, Trump, who cannot defend himself outside ill timed and ill considered tweets, is being made to look like a bad guy through leaks and “newly discovered” memories from people who have NO DESIRE to see him succeed.
If Congress were really willing to follow the rule of law, they should remind each witness that any lying to Congress will be immediately sent to the DOJ for prosecution. I’m willing to bet you’d see a ton of people follow Comey’s move and suddenly cancel. This has been a series of people playing a game to harm a sitting President. Whether you like Trump or Obama or Hillary that has to stop. This is getting dangerously close to turning into a process crime. Where the “charge” will be lying to the FBI, the Martha Stewart trap as it is called. That’s just crazy. Politics is tough, but as some have said, this is a soft coup. Which is wrong.
Investigate the crimes if there are any. Shut up about the rest. If we catch you lying, you go to jail.
