I'm not sure you fully understand the legal ramifications of the things you are suggesting.


Do tell.
You never say you have tapes.
You get a subpoena for tapes because the media says you have them.
You say there are no tapes.

Please explain the punishments you envisage?
Perhaps humiliating the left is now a crime? If so, you may have found the one thing Trump is guilty of.

Trump is the one who keeps alluding to their existence. Not the media. The media didn't talk about any tapes until Trump brought them up. You keep forgetting that little fact, but I guess it is more important to you to smear the media than argue honestly.


Show me any quote where Trump says he has tapes.
More importantly show me the 'lies' you claimed he made about the tapes.

those tapes MAY appear
you never know

I will know if they are subpoenaed won't I? Because then Trump will have to legally oblige or be held in contempt of court. Though I'm not particularly worried if they exist or not. I don't trust much of anything Trump says, so I've been taking his tape claims with a grain of salt anyways.


Lol, contempt of court for what? Not having tapes the media says he has?

Refusing to comply with a subpoena. If they just don't exist then he will just be greatly embarrassed by the media and the anti-Trumpers laughing at him for lying all those months.


Lol, he never said he had tapes. Check Mate.
Now you are starting to understand the fun in this.

No # sherlock. Got any other brain busters for me, Captain Obvious? The point of the subpoena would be to determine if they exist and if they do exist what they contain.


No, you said he would be in trouble for contempt of court.. remember ?
How so?

Yes, Comey got suckered into using a tweet as an excuse for his leaking, lol.

Trump most certainly bluffed, at the very least, that he had tapes of his and Comey's conversations. The River is down, Trump's bluff is being called. TIme for the cards to be laid out on the table.

No need to show his cards until he has a lot more fun... Days of media running around on this to be had.

I know.. hilarious. Trump seems to have figured out the left perfectly... throw them some bones and let them chew on them like rabid dogs whilst he gets on with running the country. More bills and EO's at this stage than any other President since Truman.

The threat against Comey for leaking is probably another bone for the media too. I reckon the reclusive Mr Bannon is behind much of the media manipulation.

Longshot possibility:

Comey fabricated the "Notes" and the whole thing is fiction.

And then lied under oath anyway.

Can anybody locate Comey's schedules for the days in question ?



Comey already lied under oath.
He said that AFTER Trump tweeted "Comey better hope there aren't tapes"...Comey then decided to leak the memo.
The memo went to the press BEFORE the tweet.


False. He didn't lie you just didn't count.

The memo was leaked on may 15. Trumps tweet was on May 12.

No, specific details on the memo were published on May 11th. So the content had already been leaked before Trump tweeted.

In his testimony on Thursday, Mr. Comey said the memo whose contents he had a friend leak was not classified and therefore not inappropriate to make public. Mr. Trump’s lawyers argue that it was subject to executive privilege, although the president has never asserted privilege over his conversations with Mr. Comey and independent legal experts have expressed doubt that he could. Mr. Comey arranged the leak on May 15, after he was fired and after the May 3 hearing, so it would not be in direct conflict with that testimony.

NY Times must have a killer crystal ball, or somebody 'leaked' the information to them.

You fell for fake news. You have been warned over and over about it, even in yesterdays hearing, especially from the NYT.

The details of the memo's began to emerge on May 11th.

I posted this article in another thread. The problem for Comey is, there is a New York Times article published May 11th that contains a couple of passages that absolutely do read like they were copied out of Comey's leaked memos. This strongly suggests that the leaks happened at least a day or two before Trump's tweet.

The information that Trump had asked for loyalty was already known to people right after it happened. Several of his colleague's knew.

His memo was released on may 15th.


Mr. Comey described details of his refusal to pledge his loyalty to Mr. Trump to several people close to him on the condition that they not discuss it publicly while he was F.B.I. director. But now that Mr. Comey has been fired, they felt free to discuss it on the condition of anonymity.

Yes, correct - he was leaking the content of the memo's prior to Trump tweeting.
Actual quotes in fact:

By Mr. Comey’s account, his answer to Mr. Trump’s initial question apparently did not satisfy the president, the associates said. Later in the dinner, Mr. Trump again said to Mr. Comey that he needed his loyalty. Mr. Comey again replied that he would give him “honesty” and did not pledge his loyalty, according to the account of the conversation. But Mr. Trump pressed him on whether it would be “honest loyalty.” “You will have that,” Mr. Comey told his associates he responded.

Get it strait.

He told the people he was working with about their meeting. Which is expected and responsible thing to do in such a situation.

No you get it straight.

Comey under oath said that AFTER Trump's tweet he "woke up in the middle of the night" thinking there might be corroboration for his conversations so he asked his friend to share the "content" of the memo the next day.

He had ALREADY shared the content of the memo before the tweet to his "associates". The NYT article does not say who those associates were, certainly no indication they were people he worked with. GIven he has also said who he shared the conversation with after the meeting internally in the FBI, either Comey lied under oath OR those people in the FBI leaked to the NYT and it's a small crowd.

Comey has already admitted to leaking - I rather hope the leak of the 11th was from the FBI, because another leaker in addition to Comey can be found.

lol

The memo is a note of the meeting.

He told people of the FBI about the meeting not the memo. After he was fired colleagues from the FBI talked to the NYT and there was an article written. At that point there was still no memo being leaked.

Later Trump tweeted alluding to tapes.

On May 15 Comey then leaked his memo on the subject of the meeting.

Just because you are having a hard time understanding the events does not mean Comey lied.
