J. Edgar Comey tried to blackmail Trump

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz must have the goods on Obama and his friends at the FBI because they are starting to admit "mistakes were made" in getting permission to spy on President Donald John Trump.

And by "mistakes were made," they mean they lied through their teeth.


The Washington Examiner reported that the FBI's general counsel under Obama, James Baker, told CNN the inspector general's investigation makes him "nervous."

Baker said, "The inspector general is looking at everything we did, If the IG usually finds mistakes that we made, so I expect him to find mistakes this time."

You are not allowed to make any mistakes when you spy on an American president or an American presidential nominee. OK? Is that clear? We are a republic, not the Soviet Union.

In fact, the FBI has no business spying on the president.

The FBI works for the president.

It is not -- repeat, not -- an independent agency. The Constitution forbids that. The president is in charge of the executive branch of government, not these unelected appointees from a previous president.

So what were those mistakes that Baker said they made?

Trying to be J. Edgar Hoover.

Yahoo News reported, "Senior FBI officials were concerned then director James Comey would appear to be blackmailing then President-elect Trump – using tactics notoriously associated with J. Edgar Hoover – when he attended a fateful Jan. 6, 2017, meeting at which he informed the real estate magnate about allegations he had consorted with prostitutes in Moscow, according to Jim Baker, the bureau’s chief counsel at the time."

There is so much spin going on that Baker must look like the Tasmanian Devil of Looney Tunes lore.

This was not a constitutional crisis to Baker. No, no, no. It was bad PR. Why attempted blackmail of the president-elect may make them seem creepy.

Yahoo reported, "'We were quite worried about the Hoover analogies, and we were determined not to have such a disaster happen on our watch,' said Jim Baker, then the FBI’s top lawyer in an interview with the Yahoo News podcast Skullduggery. But he and Comey determined the bureau had an obligation to tell Trump of the uncorroborated allegations because 'the press has it; it’s about to come out. You should be alerted to that fact.'"

Oh really? They had to "alert" him.

If so, why didn't they alert President Trump to their suspicions of Russian interference during the election instead of just spying on him in the name of investigating Russians?

Indeed, why did they continue to spy on him after the election?

It looked like blackmail because it was blackmail. Obama's people tipped CNN to this story.

The basis of the spying is the big issue. Baker gave cover to the spying and attempted blackmail.

The Examiner said, "Baker said last week at an event in Washington, D.C., that he took a leading role in overseeing the FISA warrant applications to obtain the authority to spy on Page. Baker said on Monday he does not believe there was any intent from the people he worked with to do 'anything wrong or illegal,' including politically motivated spying."

Intent does not matter. Mike Flynn never intended anything bad. Mueller did not care. He indicted him.

Under Obama, the FBI repeatedly broke the law. Baker knows it. I know it. You know it.

So what are we going to do about it? Have another case where money talks and we let the criminal walk like we did with Hillary?

Lock them up, beginning with Jimmy the Weasel Comey. Excuse me, J. Edgar Comey.

  2. Tasmanian devils (the real ones) are suffering from a very nasty form of contagious cancer right now.

    It looks to me that Comey has a transmissible cancer of the soul, and mind, caught from his lefty colleagues.

    Do orange jumpsuits come in his size?

    1. I'd like to hear Comey howl like a Tasmanian Devil too. Suppose I'd have to be in the cellblock after lights out to enjoy that.

  5. Like Alger Hiss, these guys are trying to have their cases tried by their friends in "the court of public opinion", the press.

    1. And they tried to attempt to push the coup through in the same way. I think the media is going to suffer from their Pravda ways from all this as well.

  8. A reminder that each of these public servants is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

    1. True. I fear tampered evidence or process could get them off, but just indicting them, all of them, will be enough to have the people screaming.

      We knew when OJ was guilty, but he got off. His reputation never recovered and only a few believed he didn't do the deed.

      I think a few might skate, the trials will be epic, though probably quite a bit out of the public view. I also have concern over the judges, guaranteed there will be Obama appointees involved to protect the master.

  9. To Dems, crimes are just ... mistakes! Oops, sorry. Didn't mean to break the law with my illegal server, or my illegal Secret documents.
    Sorry, my mistake (since I've been caught).

    Oops, sorry, the facts we swore were true are not really verified; not really perjury, we didn't expect to get caught. Sorry...

    Lock Them Up.

  10. > "mistakes were made"

    Passive voice is the last refuge of scoundrels.

    "Mistakes were made," indeed.

    A better way of putting it is, "We made mistakes."

    An even better way of putting it is, "I made mistakes."

    A yet even better way of putting it is, "I was arrogant enough to flout the law if it meant taking Trump down."

    All bad moral choices are mistakes, but not all mistakes are bad moral choices.

    "I made a mistake -- I played the Queen of Spades when I should have played a trump card."

    "I made a mistake -- I didn't fill up the car yesterday so now I'm hoping I make it to the next gas station."

    "I made a mistake -- I tried to overthrow a duly-elected president and spit upon the states who elected him, because I know what's best for the country, and you don't, but it didn't work and now it looks like I might be in trouble."

    All three of these are mistakes, but one is not like the others.

    1. If you do something intentionally then it isn't a mistake. Mistake softens the acts of people who were attempting a coup.

      I am sick to death of the apologies that claim "I made a mistake". When nothing of the sort like that happened. Intentional actions, words, are not mistakes, other than misreading what the blow back was going to be. And not a one of them were sorry for the deeds, they were sorry they were blasted for their actions.

  11. Jimmy, James Comey, is no J. Edgar Hoover. Hoover never had to leak fiction to the press. He would rather whisper truth. Jimmy my boy, one Hoover was bad enough. We don't need another.

  12. Comey started the "intent" defense when he illegally exonerated Hillary. Hillary committed Treason but is innocent because she had no "intent". Trump committed no crimes but he is guilty because of his "intent". We see this again with Mueller's obstruction charges. Trump did nothing to obstruct but he's guilty of obstruction because he had "intent". The opposition, including the GOPe, want to convict Trump for thought crimes.
