The dynamic here being you can't prove anything during an ongoing investigation because everything is classified.

They need a leak.

The Democrats need something to pin their hopes on and keep yammering on about it, like repeating it will make it true. Never mind that it's been said 3 times that there is no connection, they still keep on and on and on and...................


Lmao. Here, I put this in a picture.

It's possible. There was a confirmed phone call last Tuesday.

Will the FBI side with Trump. Or support the investigation.

Trump insulted the wrong people. They have long memories and don't trust Trump...they may be next on the chopping block and that's just not going to happen.

Comey did not have to be removed for Sessions to prosecute anyone involved. The AG / DOJ is technically over the FBI (along with the DNI). Charges are at the discretion of the DOJ and not the FBI.


Yes, but Comey could find more flimsy reasons to NOT recommend Hillary's prosecution.


As a police officer I can recommend all day the prosecuting attorney not fire someone and they dont have to listen to my advice / opinion. If a person randomly walks into a store and decides to shoot and kill a random person, all on video, with audio and a full confession by the suspect the prosecuting attorney can still decide not to prosecute.

The head of the FBI is in the exact same boat.

Given the position Lynch / Obama put him in its almost as if they planned to muddy the waters by making Comey the fall guy. I just dont think they planned on Trump A - surviving this long and B - firing people bot up to the task. Certainly something other Presidents have not done.

So basically we're back to square one where none of us knows anything because no one has actually seen any source anything.

We are all operating off of rumor and innuedo. You will believe what you want to believe. Those who hate Trump will believe this is about Trump/Russia because there are plenty of rumors about that. We are seeing plenty of this.

The rest of us are wondering what is going on.

I have yet to see anything except knowing that Comey gave bad testimony which we do know because his own agency corrected him and that testimony was about Huma Abedin and classified documents in email chains ... not about Trump and Russia which Comey confirmed there was still no evidence on.

The FBI Director serves at the pleasure of the President. What's REALLY surprising is that he wasn't fired as a matter of course as Trump took over. The President (any President) does not NEED a reason to fire the FBI Director. That he lasted over 100 days is remarkable.

What links would those be? I remember Breitbart trying to make this case last year before the election and from what I recall it was some BS like Lockheed Martin has donated to the Clinton Foundation, Comey once worked for Lockheed Martin. In other words, nothing.

If you've got something more than vague, unsubstantiated allegations, please share.

Now Democrats are demanding a special counsel stating that AG sessions already recused himself and since the new deputy AG was involved in Comeys dismissal he should recuse himself as well.


So they're basically saying what everyone on the (D) side here is saying - This HAS to be over Trump/Russia and for no other reason.

Can they prove that?


No they cant and neither could Comey, Clapper and other intel heads who have stated their is no evidence of collusion.

If they had it ... it would be out. The way things have been leaking, it would be out.

They aren't going to sit on something like that, an impeachable offense, if they have it.

If they had smoking gun evidence that Trump somehow skewed the elections in his favor with Russia's help, that's treason and impeachable. If they had it, they wouldn't be sitting on it. They don't have it.


Look, I'm sorry, but no. You can't make that statement with any reasonable degree of certainty.
The FBI is perfectly capable of keeping their cards close to their chest, and this is par for the course with a high-level counterintelligence investigation. Typically speaking, you don't go public with evidence during an ongoing investigation. It compromises the case and taints the evidence. Law enforcement 101.

Shouldn't hillary be happy he is fired?

After all, he was why she didn't win.




No doubt! To suggest Comey is partisan is to admit senility.



Who said he was?

I say he was pressured by everyone above him.

Therefore making him not effective at his job.

Now they can go after lynch and rice.



I've read several comments on here so far suggesting Hillary would be upset by this. As if Comey didn't screw her over.


Well Comey does have financial and other links to the Clinton Foundation and if I remember right Comeys brother is also linked into the Clintons.


So how did he profit off of severely hurting her chances to win?


Another school of thought is that her being cleared so to speak was the intended result but backfired.

Trump has gone out of his way to crap all over the alphabet agencies. None of them will forget it any time soon.

The FBI won't easily forget that POTUS would rather watch Fox and Friends than read his daily Intelligence briefings.... the ones compiled by the FBI.

None of them are happy about the fact that their boss is a toddler in a senior citizens body.

It would be more appropriate to say she benefited by not having Comey recommend charges.

Is it true that the reason the White House gave for firing Comey is because he did something bad to Hillary back on July 8, 2016? That's what I'm hearing on the radio.


According to the Deputy AG who wrote the recommendation to fire him said that Comey should not have come out and said all the things he did about hillary, in the way he did.

It was not a good presentation of the evidence and he shouldn't have even done the presser, usurping Lynch in that regard.




Yes, he violated protocols, but I'm so thankful that Comey and Wiki-leaks exposed what a DOG Hillary was. President Trump is indeed a man of patience, like he was with Flynn. But like all of us, he has his limits.

If that were the case, we wouldn't already know as much about it as we do.

After that clown spent 15 minutes laying out a case then 3 minutes saying do not take it to court... his days were numbered.

My WAG on the situation is more along the lines of the Trump team trying to get him to play ball... him waffling with every breath and finally after he "mis-spoke" they said F it... get out.
