I can't believe this isn't being discussed.

In his May 3rd hearing, Chuck Grassley asked James Comey if he'd ever leaked anything to the media, or had knowledge of any leaks.

Am I missing something here? Is my timeline off?


Director Comey, have you ever been an anonymous source in news reports about matters relating to the Trump investigation or the Clinton investigation? COMEY: Never. GRASSLEY: Question two, relatively related, have you ever authorized someone else at the FBI to be an anonymous source in news reports about the Trump investigation or the Clinton investigation? COMEY: No.

I'm not big on Gateway Pundit, but they've got video of his May 3 testimony, as well as some interesting questions raised by Catherine Herridge

www.thegatewaypundit.com...


Herridge said one of Comey’s problems “is that in his last public testimony here on Capitol Hill before the Senate Judiciary Committee, right out of the gate in that hearing, he took a series of questions from the Republican chairman, Chuck Grassley and Chuck Grassley asked him whether he had ever been an anonymous source for reporters about the Hillary Clinton email investigation or the Russia case and James Comey testified ‘no.’ “Then he asked him whether he had ever authorized someone else to be an anonymous source on his behalf, on the Clinton email case, and the Russia case, and James Comey said ‘no.’”


What say you, enlightened denizens?

I think my timeline is off. He said that stuff a week before he was fired. It's hard keeping all these dates straight.

Well, technically, he wasnt the anonymous source, the professor friend he told was.

No, he did not perjure himself.

He did not act as an anonymous source leaking info to the media and he did not ask anyone at the FBI to be an anonymous source.

Yes technically he is THE SOURCE. The leak originated with Comey...hence source.

He did admit to leaking info to the New York Times, via a friend who wasn't named, didn't he?

Did he perjure himself when he claimed he leaked the memo to the NYT in response to a specific Trump Tweet? A tweet that it turned out was written a day after the NYT got the memo

That was well after May 3rd.

And yes, it was a friend that released his memos to the press. His friend does not work for the FBI.

Your timeline is off, BUT...

There is quite a bit of speculation out there in the blogosphere that Comey is THE leaker in many cases.

My mind goes back to the Trump tweet in March about the Obama Admin' "wiretapping" his campaign and the almost immediate leaked Comey denial that was never acknowledged as legit.

All of which seems very suspicious to me now, knowing what we know.

There is a lot of context to that we simply do not know. It's quite possible that his friend gave the NYT the memos and told them to wait for their say-so to release them. So they have it in their hands, but do not release them until Comey sees the Trump tweet and gives the thumbs-up to his friend.

That doesnt change the fact that he leaked it BEFORE the tweet not BECAUSE of the tweet as he said. That was a lie.

Also, he leaked it. This the same guy that told Trump he couldnt make a statement about there not being a FBI investigation on him because the FBI wasnt the proper chanel for that request.....

Comey didnt go to the attorney general. He leaked an FBI memo to the press. That avenue is not even part of the government.

I agree with you. Lots of unknowns.

We don't know when Comey wrote the memos.

We don't know when he gave them to his friend.

We don't know when his friend gave them to the Times.

We still haven't seen the memos.

It's very easy to get confused by the timeline because of this.

Comey was "trained" as a "lawyer". So are the Clintons. Comey,..He's a POS to start with. What else you got? Your wrong or right doesn't mean the same in a social/common law,.. application. ...What else you got?

He said he shared the unclassified memos with a friend and when Trump made his tweet, he asked his friend to give it to the press.

He did not lie, as far as I can tell. We're just missing the entire context of the situation.

No, he did not. He leaked his personal recollections of the encounters, as a private citizen. He is allowed to do that, as he is no longer a government employee. The classified memos went to Muller.

It's no different than politicians that write books after they leave office.

So what was his reason for sharing it with his friend?

Anticipation of tweets?

Also, ALL FBI materials he posses arent his to give or share, secret or not.

He cant make that call.

EDIT TO ADD:
All typed on FBI laptops, while on the clock concerning meetings with the POTUS about national affairs... not HIS recollections. Not anymore.

Indeed.

We will have to wait this out and see what info we learn.

No matter, I have no doubt that Comey knows what he is doing. He's a pro and is not going to get himself caught-up in something so small as this.
