That is NOT what Comey said.


"With respect to the president's tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, I have no information that supports those tweets and we have looked carefully inside the FBI," Comey testified. "The Department of Justice has asked me to share with you that the answer is the same for the Department of Justice and all its components. The department has no information that supports those tweets."


He said he has no evidence to support it and that the DoJ asked him to state that the rest of the DoJ has no information to support it. So yes, it was lawyer speak but absolutely not how you're trying to portray it.

Keep trying how? My argument holds up legally. You are just sticking your fingers in your ears and saying, "NUH HUH I CAN'T HEAR YOU!" like that is a real argument.


My initial statement was that for me to admit he is wrong I would need proof he is wrong. As someone who prefers science over politics, I need proof to admit something. That is my personal feeling on the situation, it was not an argument.

You then tried to turn it into an argument and say I was advocating Trump's statement, which is why I just brushed your comments aside. They had nothing to do with what I initially said and were based on assumptions you had made.

Anyway, I think we've derailed this thread for long enough so I'll leave it at that.

If you are a person of science then you should be defaulting to the null hypothesis in regards to this conversation. The null hypothesis in this case would be that Trump is lying.

So Comey says "and we have looked carefully inside the FBI"

and

"The Department of Justice has asked me to share with you that the answer is the same for the Department of Justice and all its components. The department has no information that supports those tweets."

Which means the FBI isn't telling anything about looking into other agencies.

I'm not slandering the FBI! Everyone knows that there are many instances where the FBI simply CAN NOT tell the truth or the whole truth for national security reasons so........they lie, or say nothing, or say something so confusing no one gets it.

Most Trump supporters I know are genuinely and "factually" idiots. I know that from first hand experience! They may be nice people, but when it comes to "factually", they're entirely screwed up with false facts that influence them to misguided beliefs. And I came to realize this during the last election campaign; its actually an interesting study on human nature.

The Leftist nutjobs and the low information Democrat voters have the same problem......and the leftist MSM, particularly MSNBC know that and take extreme advantage of it; its hilarious to watch.

Bottom line is, both "sides" assume facts not in evidence; they don't know what evidence is and don't recognize the lack of evidence when it is right in front of them.

Before long I would guess, you'll come to realize its entirely impossible to sway the Trump supporters in their views. In fact, and its referenced in another thread, the more you argue with them, the more entrenched in their beliefs they become.


Actually thats article talks about everyone who are political based so only attributing to trump supporters proves your biased slant on the topic? Yes you said liberals too in an effort to try and seem non biased yet call most trump supports factual idiots. The reality is hilarious that a liberal leaning pseudo intellectual like your self is trying to distance your self from other liberals because at your parties highest levels it is fuctioning like a pack of monkeys trying to f--k a football hoping it gets pregnant aka basically the russian collusion story! Comey said that they did conduct an investigation on the collusion while saying they didn't wire tap trump. Question when was the operation? What type of methods had been used and if this happened while obama was in office did he view any of the information collected! If obama viewed the material and it was used agaisnt trump and leaked to the newpapers its over for the dems hence no evidence of wiretapping statement by comey who is a piss poor head of fbi he botched Hillary's investigation and people on reddit found damning evidence agaisnt hillary clintons IT people while he ignored the obvious! I dont trust comey at all even when he back peddled on hillary before the election. He buried the weiner pedo investigation too. All comey does is pretend to care then coverup crimes by dems !

Unless Trump has some info that the FBI and gang doesn't , this is why Tweeting important info like is a bad idea. Go through proper channels no egg on your face.

We will see if Trump releases any info this week.

It's because they are doing it on purpose. These people aren't stupid, most anyway. They understand the logical fallacies. They know they are wrong but that is their job. To just be difficult.

I'm telling you. These people act dumb and stupid. But they do it just to be a problem. There is no reasoning with them. The knowingly refuse it when they can't win. They are TROLLS and nothing more. So many members on here are doing it. I don't know if they get paid for it or what but there isn't an honest one among them.

They will lie about everything and use the same fallacies over and over again. The same tactics every time. F*CK THEM ALL!!


We don't get paid, We do it for the love.

Like I said in my initial comment here, he's stated he'll be providing information "very soon." He gave a window of the next couple of weeks, and that clock started the middle of last week.

If he's got proof, I would expect it to come out posthaste now that Comey has said he doesn't have any information to support the claim. I can't imagine Trump would let that stand for a minute longer than he had to.


That's right, although today-monday was his last day to produce something, and nothing has happened, notwithstanding that his claim is a couple of weeks old already, that claim being, "he had found out" however, today we have an official denial from FBI/NSA, while the FISA requests were supposed to be by the FBI.
So, if Trump does know something about some other organisation who acted on behalf of Obama say, Trump himself could as of this time, be withholding information of state surveillance by some entity against the interests of the United States. Trump is digging a grave for himself now, the time for the blarney is over, and the mini-row today between Munes and Schiff over the Republican stance shift in July last year, left Schiff telling the FBI in no uncertain terms that it did happen and that there were witnesses, and if they are not investigating that they'd better do so.(previously Comey made a ' no comment' on that when asked about it by Rick Crawford)..Upshot of that will be to find out who Trump's men made the 'phone calls to at that meeting, the calls shouldn't be hard to trace, if to Russia or New York, whatever, either way, Trump is in something of a dog's doo doo, since he says he didn't know anything about it, but would look into it, but not a murmur since.

To be fair, the Carlson interview was last week and thats when he made the statements that I'm referring to. End of the month, basically, to produce something.

"Mr. Comey, have you heard of any other branch of the American government having performed surveillence on Trump during and after the campaign?"

That's a much more interesting question.

Right, I meant the request to the SIC, Trump was given until today to produce the goods, since the SIC meeting was also today.

Question when has anything worked out for the dems in regards to trump? In the election they made fun of election fraud claims now amazingly they have to conduct one on trump to prove he is a russian spy lol. They talk about collusion between russia and trump yet clinton ran a pay for play scheme on with links to alot of foriegn donations something the fbi covered up. They got caught feeding answers to hillary and defrauding the democratic primary for hillary. Yet the fbi has done NOTHING! Not one conviction! Yet even when reddit caught hillarys IT people trying to cover up her crime Comey the con man pretended to be retarded infront of congress like he doesn't know what evidence is. Hell wieners computer was full of kiddy porn and he was caught sending pictures of himself lol or wiener pics pun intended to underage women. Fbi says we got nothing! Really?

This is like watching people refuse to learn their lesson over and over again! Trump is done lol look at the polls! Trump wont try and build a wall your all suckers! Hillary emails are all yoga emails lol. Their isnt election fraud donald! The russians hacked the dnc! Trump likes to get peed on by russian hookers!

Honestly at what point are you people going to stop being baited. You dont have anything and trump probably has evidence that will be exposed at the worst time for dems however he lets you guys dig your grave first just like with his tax returns!

The President is a pathological liar. He does it constantly and is an embarrassment to this country. Sad you and others cannot see it. Sadder still, you'll twist like a pretzel to defend the moron.

Trump supporters will never admit Trump is wrong.

Even though just yesterday I saw members say that what 'Comey had would put Obama away' and that 'Obama was likely in French Polynesia due to a complicated extradition treaty with France'.

What we find is that:
1) Obama has not 'wiretapped' Trump.
2) Obama is on vacation.
3) Trump and associates are probably under investigation. Wait, they are and have been under investigation since July.

Had to dig a tad, I recalled this article from several years ago. Technically speaking, what Comey said was most likely accurate. Reminds me of the line from Star wars. "What I told you was true, from a certain point of view.."

www.reuters.com...

"A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.

Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations truly begin - not only from defense lawyers but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges.

The undated documents show that federal agents are trained to "recreate" the investigative trail to effectively cover up where the information originated, a practice that some experts say violates a defendant's Constitutional right to a fair trial. If defendants don't know how an investigation began, they cannot know to ask to review potential sources of exculpatory evidence - information that could reveal entrapment, mistakes or biased witnesses."

What's really sad is that you're so utterly devoid of critical thinking skills that you've somehow come to the conclusion that I'm a trump supporter.
