James Comey is “incredulous” about the ravings of the guy he handed the presidency to

70 posts in this topic

Senator Sessions. Along with several other senators who also met with the Russian ambasador. Big whup. 

He was an associate of Trump during the campaign. 

 

Meeting with Russians isn't bad, but lying about it under oath is, which is what Sessions did.

It wasn't one that put her behind Trump. That plunge happened in the wake of the Comey letter.

That's like only giving credit to the guy who drives in the final run in a 5 run 9th inning comeback. Without the other 4 runs, his RBI is pointless. Without the earlier dips and plunges in her poll numbers, she would have withstood the one that happened two weeks out. Her loss was a cumulative effect of a lot of things, including bad strategy and decisions on her part. The only reason she was still a good bet to win the election was because of who she ran against. Any of the other republican finalists would have crushed her, and the other democrat finalist would have beaten Trump.

Did you watch any of the Sessions confirmation hearings? I did. It was one of the more interesting ones.

 

The entire thrust of the questioning was about his role and relationship to Trump, and his prior work as US Attorney with complaints about his civil rights record. His role and position as a Senator was not questioned - it was only mentioned by some of the Republicans on the panel as part of their lead-in remarks, praising his tenure in the Senate. It therefore seems quite plausible to me that any question about meeting with Russians that he was asked was being asked in the context of his role and relationship to the Trump campaign, not in his role as a Senator and a member of a key committee that deals with foreign governments.

 

That he, as a Senator, along with multiple other Senators (from both parties) met with the Russian ambassador (and other foreign government representatives) during the yearlong campaign cycle is unrelated to his role of being a Trump supporter. If he had resigned from the Senate and taken a paid position in the Trump campaign that would be a totally different matter. But that was not the case, and he had every right (and responsibility) to perform his senatorial duties, and based on his committee role that meant meeting with representatives of foreign governments.

 

I think it is good that he recused himself from the justice department's investigations into the Russian meddling issue, but he did that to remove any hint of impropriety that his detractors would raise, vailid or not.

If Sanders had promoted himself as anything other than a "democratic socialist;" he may have had a chance, the Clinton behemoth election machine notwithstanding.

 

 No American(s) were going to elect a Socialist in any way shape or form in the 2016 election.

Wishy washy centrists generally don't win. 

 

Clinton being an exception, of course, but he had charisma. Bernie had charisma. Hillary did not have charisma. Bernie would have won.

The ridiculous myth that Comey caused Hillary to lose is really out of vogue now. Hillary caused Hillary to lose. End of story. 

 

 

Hitting the nail on the head, so to speak. 

 

 

Bang!  I hope you aren't parked outside the stadium because that one ain't coming back.  Somebody is going to need a windshield.  And maybe a windshield wiper, invented by a woman.   ;)

Sigh.

There's a literally a link in the OP that shows you're dead wrong.

Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort , Roger Stone, Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen, JD Gordon, Sessions and Carter Page are the ones we know about.

Oh for the love of God.

 

Comey should never have spoken out about HRC email investigation. That's standard practice. The FBI doesn't publicly comment on ongoing investigations, especially when those comments could affect an election.

 

That said, don't think it affected the outcome.

 

He's a strange bird. Get the feeling he loves the limelight.

Yeah but other than those...

 

The stuff about Flynn just keeps coming. Oy.

It's difficult to quantify percentages of influence in the election from Comey's statements but considering many states had less than a 1% margin it's fair to assume it didn't hurt. Neither did the wikileaks email dump or the backing of assorted meth heads and opiate addicts along with the broader bigot vote who had been worked up to a pitch by the anybody but obama GOP.  All these influences congeal into a toxic mush for low IQ voters.

So, you too have decided to ignore the wire tapping part of the post. Okey-Dokey. 

I have seen no evidence pro or con so I can't really comment.   I thnk it is ridiculous the POTUS would blast it out even if he had evidence.  Give it to the FBI, let them investigate and send the result to the Justice Dept.  That is the process.  It was also ridiculous to have a candidate under investigation for a felony have her husband go secretly meet the AG to "talk about grandchildren. "  And strangely the legal process suddenly was aborted, Instead of FBI delivering whatever they found to Justice, and the AG making the call on prosecution or no, Obama and Justice said "never mind we will just go with what the FBI recommends.  Let Comey do Lynch's job."  And do you suppose there was ever a conversation between Comey and the White House about what his decision would be while doing the AG's job?    

 

Presumably, Comey is an honorable public servant that was put between a rock and a hard place.  He "recommended" as a good obedient soldier, not to prosecute but I think his conscience spelled out the evidence and he listed every article needed for a slam dunk prosecution and conviction.  I can only conclude his recommendation was against his will based on the subsequent evidence he disclosed and his testimony before Congress.  

 

But if Comey is releasing statements about what the POTUS says, he is way out of line and talking above his paygrade.  You didn't see admirals and generals jumping up and applauding Trump's address before Congress.  And it wasn't because they were all Democrats hoping he would cut the Defense Budget.  It is inappropriate to take a political position and I would put Comey in the same company.

I personally don't think Comey's actions were responsible for Hillary's general election loss. The democrats nominated the only candidate that could lose to Donny.

 

I think Comey's message to Donny is, put up or shut up. The IC says they can't find any evidence that Barack had anything to do with wire taps at Trump Towers. 

 

Donny does America a disservice with his outrageous musings.

Peace man.  I found a Moonbat I can agree with!  But maybe only on full moons.  ;)

Maybe Comey should have picked one side and stuck with it , seems like he kept switching sides, he certainly seems like a very confused person, I have to wonder how he ever got the job in the first place 

Maybe the truth doesn't have "a side".

Somebody tapped the Flynn call with the Russian ambassador. Do we know who did that for starters? Why couldn't the same people have tapped Trump Tower? People seem to forget that Obama's regime tapped Angela Merkel and ordered surveillance on reporter James Rosen.

End of story except for those with an agenda to push who are still making excuses for why Hillary lost, but that's what they're reduced to for the next four years at least.

 

Maybe wishing for Hillary 2020 will give them hope and help ease the sting of reality for them now that she's announced that she's coming out of the woods.

You guys sound so dumb. Do you all really not realize how dumb you sound spewing this junk? How many Democrats have you actually seen hoping for Clinton to run again?
