The FBI would not take the unusual step of issuing an official public statement unless they were prepared to back it up.



Donald Trump will release the MEMO. Because, he believes that by doing so, he will "cripple" the FBI's investigation into the Russian interference, and prevent them from uncovering his deep relationship with the Russian government. He's going to expose the very methods that are being used to investigate his ties to the Russians





Did you get told that by the same people who told you he fired Comey because he thought the Director of the FBI personally did all the investigations and it would grind to a halt without him?

You guys really need to put your thinking caps on.


trump said he fired Comey because of this "Russia thing"......it was videotaped, shown to tens of millions of people, and trump has not denied it.....how big does your "cap" have to be, to think about that?


How bout some context?


Comey had been leading an investigation into possible collusion between Trump advisers and Russian officials when he was dismissed by the president. Defending that decision in an interview on NBC News on Thursday, Trump said: “And, in fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said: ‘You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story, it’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should’ve won.’”


Of course you knew the way he actually said it looks totally different, which is why you omitted that. Or maybe you've just never seen the actual quote in context and just spit out the drivel you've been fed. I dunno.

In any case, you completely missed the point. The point is that anyone who thinks Trump fired Comey to stop the investigation is gullible as #. The FBI Director doesn't personally do all the investigations as a one-man force. Firing him doesn't stop anything. Comey himself testified so to Congress. Anyone clinging to some obstruction of justice charges because he fired Comey is deluding themselves. That's all I meant. Anyone who believes that got sold a false narrative, and the same people are now selling that Trump thinks releasing the memo will hamper Mueller's investigation, who is independent from the FBI. Again, you have to be grossly uninformed and gullible to believe this crap.

Also, Trump's stated reason for firing Comey was that Comey refused to release a statement saying that they weren't investigating Trump. Which was true: at that point, the investigation was looking into Flynn's contacts with Russia, which he supposedly lied to Mike Pence about.

Was Steele in Russia while compiling his dossier? While working for the DNC?


Glen Simpson of Fusion GPS said in his testimony that Steele
did not ever visit Russia. All of the "dossier" information
is unverified. His own words.

Trump will not release this memo.

He will just allow the time he has to object to expire.
That way his hands are clean in release of classified info.
Hey Nunes what does the chassis of that bus really look like?
So I wouldn't expect anything until Saturday. Give those fellas a little time to reconsider.


If he does that it goes back to Congress and they have to have a full House vote to release it. Some Republicans are against releasing it. I don't think he'd risk it.

Also, have you seen much of Trump since he announced he was gonna run? I don't think he particularly cares about keeping his image squeaky clean.

Right, he didn't like the way Comey was handling the situation. Somehow they twist that into convincing themselves he fired Comey to stop the investigation, which is ridiculous. But it's what they have to tell themselves.

What some of you guys don't understand, is that the world is run by "secret orders" who have more "private" knowledge about things going on which they are not allowed to use. But, knowing these things, the actors set out to find other ways, using things that are already more "public" to "trap" the players in the opposition.

The bylaws of the secret society expressly forbid any member from "revealing" what that member discovers as a result of his membership. The members can only use information from other channels, not connected to the craft. Hence, knowing certain "secret" things, each member has the motivation to act, but because his hands are "tied" with regard to this secret info, he has to find or construct ways to expose the truth, without using that society's information directly. Hence all the convoluted machinations we find working behind the scenes in an effort to get the truth out.

Hey honey what did you do today?
I had lunch at Carter's deli this afternoon.

(What I didn't tell you was I was with your best friend and that was just part of the date.)

See how leaving things out can be a lie?

I think that both things are true. It could endanger agents and there was an ommission of facts that fundamentally alter the information presented.

I believe you may want to look back into that.
Mueller was installed to look into collusion during the 2016 election campaign, which would most certainly cover any candidate in that campaign. Does not matter if nothing had been uncovered at that time, that candidate would STILL be within the scope of the investigation.

Has anyone found a link to the 'Rare Official Statement' by the FBI ?

I have yet to see the official statement.
The news reports linked in the OP do not even credit any individual with writing the statement or putting it out.

I think it's more what is left out than what is included.


INCLUDED: "The FBI obtained a warrant from a FISA court based on the unverified Steele dossier."

OMITTED: "FBI lawyers appeared before the FISA court judge wearing tassled pasties and g-strings and dropping Benjamins all over the bench."

***

The FBI's statement is meaningless, as is.


you have no idea how a FISA warrant works, simply by writing the above statement....maybe you can get Putin to crank up his B.S. media posts, so you can convince more Americans


Oh, I know how they work and it involves a rubberstamp that says "Approved."

Actually there is a big issue from what I read elsewhere today Trump took the office on Jan 20 2017,an office in the Territorial Government is a public trust,trusts do dot become law for a year and a day so his office would of become law on Jan 21 2018 but at that time there was a 3 day shutdown,his office didn't cure so everything he signed didn't cure.Schumer has him by the short and curlies,now Im not American but this was supposedly written by a judge at annavonreitz.com/publicmessagefortrump.pdf

I spent 15 minutes looking.

I am calling this FAKE,

Did anyone bother to check if there is even an official source of it? There is no public statement on FBI.gov. and the usual MSM suspects copy each other and refer to other news outlets. Well how odd.

I just urge Trump supporters to take the type of impartial, reasoned approach to the memo that Democrats and the FBI took with the dossier.


Exactly what approach did the FBI take to the information that they were provided by Christopher Steele? You're arguing that Trump supporters should take that approach, so I would assume that you know.

I'm not sure where you are getting this from, but it sounds ridiculous.

You are suggesting that no one is in charge for an entire year after every administration change.

Crazy!!!
So every task performed by EVERY President in the first year is null and void?

You may want to process this information before you put your name to it next time.

Mueller wasn't installed until after Comey was fired.

No official FBI letterhead and she fails to produce the full email. Smells fishy to me.

Are we going to go through this same thing for every emailed statement from now on?

It was a statement from the FBI, emailed to media outlets. The reporter whose tweet that was happens to be a reporter for a right-leaning outlet.
