First on CNN means Fake News

On May 3, Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii asked James Comey under oath:
If the attorney general or senior officials at the Department of Justice oppose a specific investigation, can they halt that FBI investigation?
Comey said:
In theory, yes.
Prompted by the senator, Comey added:
Not in my experience. Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something like that -- without an appropriate purpose.
 I mean where oftentimes they give us opinions that we don't see a case there and so you ought to stop investing resources in it. But I'm talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal. 
It's not happened in my experience.
Whew, Democrats said.

That takes care of any talk of the Obama administration pressuring Comey over the botched investigation of Crooked Hillary.

Then President Trump fired Comey.

Suddenly, Comey's testimony has bit them in the behind.

The New York Times made up a memo -- which no one has seen. Some guy told him he heard that somebody's cousin read it.

Now CNN entered the fray:
First on CNN: Comey now believes Trump was trying to influence him, source says
Former FBI Director James Comey now believes that President Donald Trump was trying to influence his judgment about the Russia probe, a person familiar with his thinking says, but whether that influence amounts to obstruction of justice remains an open question.
"You have to have intent in order to obstruct justice in the criminal sense," the source said, adding that "intent is hard to prove."
Comey will testify publicly before the Senate intelligence committee after Memorial Day, the panel's leaders announced Friday.
The central question at that blockbuster hearing will be whether Comey believed the President was trying to interfere with his investigation.
First there is a memo, then there is no memo, then there is.

This isn't journalism.

This is gossip.

Until Comey tells them and admits he perjured himself, this is Fake News.





On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic the election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

Autographed copies of both books are available by writing me at DonSurber@GMail.com

  1. With libs it is all mind reading. The Abelardian notion that intent means everything means that if you can read the mind of someone you hate and they have bad intentions, you are absolved from any punitive action you take against them.

  3. Comey BFF Benjamin Wittes, "Contributor" at Lawfare is apparently the source, or so he says (writes).

    Why hasn't little Ben had the spotlight put on him during the last 3-4 days?

    Because that's not important...the headline is.

  4. Here is a very interesting article about Comey, the Deep State, and the Clinton Crime family:

  5. Comey has been involved in three of the biggest scandals and miscarriages of justice by the Federal government in my lifetime. Why would I believe anything this man has to say, even under oath? I don't know whether he or Jamie Gorelick deserves the ignominious first place award for having caused the greatest harm to my country during my life. It's a close tie between the two of them.

  6. He'll testify after Memorial Day? That's a lot of time to write, and re-write, and polish any needed memos, isn't it?
