Comey denied any interference in the agency’s investigations while under oath at a Senate hearing earlier this month. Won’t hear about that in the media.
The US media instead are in a frenzy because they think Trump is impeachable. Comey’s memo says Trump told Comey, in a private meeting when talking about the FBI investigation into Trump’s friend Flynn who had just been sacked, “I hope you can let this go.” THe media is re-framing this as “obstruction of justice”. See headlined story above: Comey denied it under oath a month ago.
The Slow-Motion Assassination of President Trump, by Scott Adams.
Key word = hope …
Do you see Trump asking Comey to end the Flynn investigation in the quote “I hope you can let this go”?
All I see in that sentence is “duh.” Obviously Trump HOPED his friend and advisor Flynn would be okay. Did it need to be said? Was there some confusion on this point with Comey? Did Comey enter the meeting thinking maybe President Trump wanted to see his friend and advisor Flynn get eaten by the system?
I’m no lawyer, but I can’t see any judge or jury in the United States prosecuting someone for expressing a hope that the future turns out well for his friend.
Watch the headlines and pundits today transmogrify “hope” into “asked to end the Flynn investigation.”
That isn’t news.
That is an assassination. …
The leaks will destroy Trump if they continue. But if that happens, no Democrat and no anti-Trump Republican will ever be able to govern in the future. Payback is guaranteed. The next President to sit in the White House will be leaked to the point of ineffectiveness.
