We have a government of secrets. A servant of the people, that work for the people, and who's positions were created by the people to serve them. And they can't tell us why they can break the law and get away with it because it's classified. Sums things up well.



I have the utmost respect for Trey Gowdy, but I still wonder why Comey gave out all those immunity deals to Hillary's cronies ? That fact alone made me believe that Comey was in Clinton's back pocket.

Me thinks that Mr Comey may have got himself compromised...

The funny thing is, if Trump truly did "obstruct justice" with trying to end the Flynn investigation, Comey just implicated himself for not immediately reporting it once the crime was committed.. He can't just hold these little memos and meetings as "aces up his sleeve" for later. When a crime is committed, he is supposed to report it, not wait until a later date to leak it...

That's a good point, but I'm sure it will be ignored by the media

The memo itself isn't terribly damning. Its significance is being blown out of proportion, something that even many of the saner Democrats (like Nancy Pelosi and Joe Lieberman) realize. To me, Comey's actions with the Clintons clearly indicate he's in their pocket, and the memo is an attempt at revenge for getting fired.

By the way, has Comey surfaced yet? Has an actual human being, with an actual name, confirmed that the memo is real?

Trump tweets hours after the firing for comey not to leak anything cause he recorded their conversations and then 48 hours later comey leaks that he has memos?


Trump did not say he had, "recorded their conversation." I will grant that he strongly implied such, but he did not come right out and say so.

What I am wondering is why people (mostly on the left) seem to think that this indicates a 'threat' from president Trump. I mean, after all, the only reason any such theoretical recordings could be considered a 'threat' would be if the one being 'threatened' said something in public other than what was actually said in private.

See how that works?

Comey had nothing to do with the immunity deals. That was all the Department of Justice.

so, we do not know what the info is, or if he even HAS any info at all, but it must be huge and Trump must be correct.

right?

We are all well aware of the corruption of the left and how deep it goes. We know there were bodies, murders and so much more. They are now going ballistic because they are scurrying like rats to distract from what may be coming. Even Comey now looks like part of the problem.

So yes...we hope he has the info and that we can get to the hangings. There are many of us eagerly awaiting to see a Clinton, Pelosi, Reid, Waters, etc. swinging for treason.


we ARE well aware? Corruption? What corruption? I am not aware of this? I am part of "we" right? Bodies? WTF are you talking about?

Scurrying like rats? I can imagine your mind scurrying like rats to twist and manipulate factual info in order to keep up with your agenda.

You are delusional and paranoid. That is what happens when you are sinking fast on an idea that was sheista from the beginning...you try and make your oh so great and mighty cheeto god prevail...only 1 problem tho...its all in your mind.

Then...if not already, you become nutz...the scary kind that can and will hurt people.

I mean...its not so hard to believe you will hurt people, you already want poor, unfortunate and elderly people to just not have insurance and die.

That is why i am a little bit afraid of Trump supporters. The #'s are dwindling down, but they are still out there.

You enjoy watching theater? That is all Gowdy is. WHO has he sent to jail?

Clinton is vile. They all belong in jail.

The rumor I'm hearing today is that the real scandal has to do with the Obama administration ""unmasking"'political opponents and rices refusal to testify.

Rice is going to be subpoenaed by the special counsel. She's at the heart of the Russia investigation whether she likes it or not.

I lost all respect for Gowdy at the Clinton Benghazi hearings.

He had months to prepare and literally every republican on the planet at his disposal to provide information etc and Clinton came away from that hearing looking better than before she went into it.

He always hints at something but never delivers. Typical politician.

There use to be a time in the US where it was OK to protect your sources.....in fact, if you DIDNT, you wouldnt be in the business very long.....

Now all the sudden Trump and his supporters poo poo the idea of having anonymous sources etc......

Seriously, if people just went out naming sources, and those sources were subject to retaliation, how long do you think it would be before you wouldnt get squat for the truth from anyone?

Common sense has abandoned the Trump train........


Here and there, yes, anonymous sources. When EVERY source used is anonymous, something's not quite right...

He goes on to say that the reason he did it is classified. Gowdy claims to know what the info is and says if the American people knew they would fully support the decision as well.



If this is true and Comey has dirt on Clinton and Obama, and history will judge him better than the Democrats, why would Trump fire him?



He was already old hat and on his way out.

With him out, it lends more integrity and credibility into any Clinton investigation.

Maybe another reason he was fired is because the FBI agents had lost faith in their director for not recommending charges. it's safe to assume the bulk of the bureau didn't see the same classified information Gowdy/comey had access to. Maybe Trump fired him to win the support of the FBI and something big is coming and he needs the FBI on his side?

I hadn't thought of that angle.
Sounds very possible.

I guess we'll see how things shake out.

It isn't so much the use of anonymous sources as it is the total lack of accountability on the part of the press.

These days, I feel like I could call up the WaPer and claim to be someone connected to this or that department with information and become their next anonymous source. It's become apparent they aren't using the label to protect a source so much as just accepting whatever is given without any attempt to independently verify or corroborate it.

Let's take this latest memo. They didn't ask to even see it. They just accepted it was genuine and allowed anonymous folks to read bits of it over the phone to them. None of the people who reported on it ... saw it. Don't you think that's a bit dicey? Don't you think someone would at least ask to see it for their journalistic integrity?

Had Hillary been charged, indicted or tried for anything Pryor to inauguration day then Obama would have waved his majic wand.

Thinking not much doubt Obama was involved in many of the various schemes or had known of them.

Comey part may have been chaos stopper as DNC candidate knocked out of race and sitting President faced impeachment at an election cycle.

Absolutely would have been chaotic had that been case.

Trumps win scotched a lot of plans that would have made past issues fade away.

Comey compromised along the way, hence firing.

As it is, Hillary is wide open to charges along with anyone aiding and abetting her.

A reason not to go after Clinton would revolve around the possibility it would compromise a more serious investigation that is wider reaching than just Hillary and her minions. While it does not happen often, making a decision not to prosecute in order to safeguard a more serious investigation does occur.

The only issue I cant see resolved is the deputy AG and his review of Comeys actions that led to him losing faith in Comeys ability to do his job. I would imagine the deputy AG could get access to see the classified info Gowdy talked about.

Sounds like something big might break when a new FBI director is in place.

About the only bigger fish than Hillary I can think of would be Obama.

Your post and Phoenix's make me think that is a disticnt possibility and Comey, knowing that, did what he did to upset the apple cart with his public statement of nonintent.

Had that info (specific details about classified at the time that he included) not come out, we could be saddled with madame president right now and no way to unseat her.

Trump really threw a spanner in the works when he blew past every obstacle placed before him by the political machine (Rs & Ds together) and somehow ended up in the big chair. He's loud and boisterous and as a wise poster around here said, has an ego thay could act as a sun shade for Texas, but, make no mistake, he has really shaken things up and I think we could use more such shaking.
