~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
Saturday afternoon, the House Judiciary Committee published and released a full transcript of former FBI Director James Comey’s Closed door testimony.
According to Fox News, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-SC, published the 235-page transcript as a part of an agreement with Comey.
At first the Former FBI Director challenged the subpoena to appear before the committee and instead pushed for a public hearing.
Lawmakers were frustrated with Comey’s lack of specifics. A statement issued by Chairman Gowdy’s Office indicated Comey answered “I don’t remember” 71 times, “I don’t know” 166 times and “I don’t recall” eight times.
Comey was specifically asked if the FBI had any evidence that anyone in the Trump campaign conspired to hack the DNC server, his deflective response was posed in the form a question.
“Did we have evidence in July of (2016) that anyone in the Trump campaign conspired to hack the DNC server?” Comey asked rhetorically. “I don’t think that the FBI and special counsel want me answering questions that may relate to their investigation of Russian interference during 2016. And I worry that that would cross that line.”
Additionally, Gowdy asked about what “factual predicate” the bureau had to launch a counterintelligence investigation.
Comey once again danced around the question stating, “To the extent, I recall facts developed during our investigation of Russian interference and the potential connection of Americans, I think that’s a question that the FBI doesn’t want me answering. So it’s both a can’t and a won’t,” Comey replied.
The former FBI director went on to say that anything related to Mueller’s investigation, to his understanding, would be “off limits” as it is an ongoing investigation, also according to a Fox News report.
FULL COMEY TRANSCRIPT https://judiciary.house.gov/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Comey-interv...
The transcript from yesterday's James Comey interview is out. It includes:
‘I don’t know’ - 166 times
'I don’t remember' - 71 times
‘I don’t recall’ - 8 times
Read the transcript for yourself. Does this sound like someone interested in telling the full story?
We didn't have to wait for this interview! Comey admitted to many crimes during the past two years and should have been in prison during most of that time. He actually bragged about committing illegal acts, and even doing his best to see that he tried to destroy President Trump's position! Why the H*l hasn't something been done to stop this travesty from the beginning? Mueller was illegally chosen as Special Counsel as it was a Conflict of Interest!. Hillary should have been arrested for not only her e-mail crimes, but also for Benghazi and the Iran Deal, as should Obama have been Impeached. Our country has been overrun by Traitors!!!.
Comey Admits Steele Dossier Unverified Months After FISA Warrant http://bit.ly/2EjaJ5r
No one really expected Comey to reveal anything truthfully did they? "I don't know" 166 times, "I don't remember" 71 times and "I don't recall" 8 times. Let's see, hey, wait a minute, this is the essence of taking the 5th, is it not? Of course it is!!! This is not a "testimony", it's a sham. Taking the "5th" without stating so, typical Democrat sidestep! I expected nothing else!
With such a poor memory, how the heck did he ever write a book?
He’s such a slime-ball!
He's got great memory when he is on the news or selling his book. What a scumbag.
Like everyone else who writes books, he didn't write it, someone else wrote it for him. Out on a limb here, but my knowledge about true authors, is there are very few true authors.
The NERVE of this guy!
Comey to Congress: “Who Cares” Who Paid for the Anti-Trump Dossier
Former FBI Director James Comey doesn’t seem to think it’s important who paid for the salacious, unverified anti-Trump dossier.
When asked by Congressman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) who paid for the document during yesterday’s closed-door interview, Comey replied, “Who cares?”
Meadows tweeted today just after the transcript of Comey’s interview was released to the public:
I asked Director Comey about who paid for the dossier.
1) Republicans paid for it — (Republicans did not pay for it)
2) “Who cares?” Yes, this is an FBI Director apparently not caring to know who paid for information used to surveil Americans with a FISA warrant.”
This is infuriating! I am SO ANGRY Trump caved! I'm even angrier about the aid to Mexico and Central America! >>>>>> It appears that the resolve has desolved. No shutdown. NO $5B. Yet, it seems that DT will approve Mexico and Central America getting approx $12B in foreign ai.d from the TAXPAYERS. If so, I see a democrat in the WH come 2021. I calls'em as I see;em.
