Democrats in shock after James Comey "admitted" he sent classified material to somebody to "leak" and ultimately get a special council appointed !!

Trump now suggests the entire thing is illegal !!

Perhaps it is.

Fruits of the poisonous tree may apply to cases spawned from Mueller.

All things considered 😁

Is this guy Comey really this crazy ?

Donald Trump Suggests Appointment of Special Counsel Was Illegal After James Comey Leaks

President Donald Trump speculated about the nature of the Russia special counsel on Friday, pointing out that it was the result of an illegal leak to the media.

“James Comey illegally leaked classified documents to the press in order to generate a Special Council?” Trump asked on Twitter. “Therefore, the Special Council was established based on an illegal act?”

Trump made his comments after news broke that the Justice Department inspector general was investigating if Comey leaked classified information by giving a friend memos of his conversations with the president.

If Jeff sessions never accepted the job no special council.

Despite the talking point.the over arching reason for SC is 1. Congress beefed it up to witch hunt Clinton when white water wasn't providing results.

And sessions was part of the investigation as a former campaign member (recusal) Since rod fired comey a special council was appointed to deal with the AG conflict of interests in the case.

The comey memos were read by people in January.

SC was appointed and people loved Mueller. Gingrich loved the choice. When the information coming out wasn't favorable opinions changed.

Yes SC suck.

They went looking for real estate fraud with Clinton ended up with lying about a bj.

Funny how NOW its a problem.

Have to laugh a little.

Personally I am far more concerned about my own rights that have been greatly diminished over the last 17 years.

Now that the elite are feeling it I am supposed to care?

Nah. Popcorn time.

Wow, Democrats will do anything to get their way. People that believe that the ends justify the means are NOT good people. They are people of poor moral character and will take shortcuts over doing the right thing. Time to lock up all of these jackasses.

Maybe the Republican congress during the white water scandal shouldn't have beefed up the special council powers and procedure.

Comey violated sections 18 USC 641, 18 USC 793, and 18 USC 1924(a)
by intentionally giving classified information to his friend so that it would
be leaked to the NYT.

At the time, he was under investigation for violation of The Hatch Act,
due to complaints filed by Democrats.

So it seems he was a very conflicted and troubled man,
he despised Trump...no doubt about it his actions were illegal.

Where does that leave the appointment of the SC?

Listen to napalitano

The real reason was Jeff session and rodstein had conflicts of interest and the rules for special council expanded during the white water scandal led to this. Sessions recued himself rod fired comey 3rd party called in to throw off the calls of bias.

If somthing was wrong with Comey leaking his memos. It might negate the memos, but nothing else.

So they use a Clinton appointed judge to write an article in the NYTimes.

That just reeks of dirty dealings.

Thats a rabbit trail. The accusation by Trump is
that Comey's actions were illegal.

At least two of the memo's were classified,
Comey did not have the authority to declassify.

So ....it was illegal for him to leak them as
they were the property of the FBI, and
the material was classified.

Some people think one scumbag cancels another.

Personally I say follow the policy.

Since dems and Republicans keep voting up debt and voting away our rights it's ain't a single person doing it. It's the policy itself.

Like fisa courts.

Devon Nunes loves em. He expands spying on amaericans every chance he gets.

Then acts surprised when it goes south..

We will see...

It's certainly possible.

Though a life long prosecutor may know the line to walk a little better than Hannity.

Sure. They use the actual judge on the case.

But can you produce any information saying otherwise or are you just happy to be fed from hannity like a baby bird?


Robert Mueller is superb choice to be special counsel. His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity. Media should now calm down

Before he received his talking points.

He is talking about the SC. Trump is talking about Comey.
There is obviously a difference.

I do think you are correct in that the Dems are bitter
about Clinton impeachment, and bitter about Hillary
losing. The best they had was Obama's so callled
"scandal free" presidency that had them well on
their way to a path of socialism in America.

Hillary lost, and Trump took the reigns from their grasp,
and he is undoing everything Obama did. They are going nuts.....

So you agree with the perjury trap for Clinton but not Trump?

Enough said..

Defending turf nothing else.
