Russia’s Sputnik News found an even dozen insane moments during FBI director James Comey’s testimony before Congress yesterday.
Forget the mainstream media’s kosher approved narrative bashing President Trump. Sputnik reveals some very surreal moments in an out-of-control process that the MSM is ignoring.
This excerpt from the article covers points 2, 3, 5, and 6.
Excerpt from Sputnik News
2. The FBI admits that there is an active investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible links to Russia, despite the fact that it was the Podesta group that was actively lobbying on behalf of Russian entities, and that the Clinton campaign was openly collecting contributions from wealthy Russian donors, such as Roman Abramovich’s wife Darya Zhukova.
“I have been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that the FBI, as part of our counterintelligence mission, is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election and that includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts,” FBI Director James Comey told the hearing. “As with any counterintelligence investigation, this will also include an assessment of whether any crimes were committed.”
3. Both Comey and National Security Agency Director Admiral Michael Rogers admit that Russia did not influence voting process in the US, shortly after Comey confirmed that there is still an active investigation.
You would think that would be the end of the investigation? Nope!
5. Neither Comey nor Rogers could confirm Trump’s claim that his New York City tower was wiretapped during his presidential campaign.
Rogers added that it would be illegal for the NSA to ask the British GCHQ to wiretap any US citizen. Despite this claim, we learned from the Snowden revelations that GCHQ was actively wiretapping US citizens and handing it over to the American agency. Not only do they practice this, they boast about it when they supply the US with valuable intelligence information.
In 2013, the Guardian published GCHQ documents that showed that British intelligence had supplied “unique contributions” to the US during an investigation of the American citizen responsible for an attempted car bomb attack in Times Square, New York City, in 2010.
6. Schiff falsely accused Trump’s former advisor Roger Stone of having inside knowledge of upcoming Clinton revelations, despite the fact that WikiLeaks were actively and publicly promoting the upcoming leaks.
“In the weeks that follow, Stone shows a remarkable prescience: ‘I have total confidence that @wikileaks and my hero Julian Assange will educate the American people soon. #Lockherup. ‘Payload coming,’ he predicts, and two days later, it does,” Schiff said. “Wikileaks releases its first batch of Podesta emails. The release of John Podesta’s emails would then continue on a daily basis up to election day.”
WikiLeaks had been very publicly promoting an upcoming dump for some time prior to Stone’s tweet.
Meanwhile, in what seems to be a “screw you” gesture to Comey and company, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is going to Russia according to this Reuters report.
“Donald Trump’s Administration is making a grave error that will shake the confidence of America’s most important alliance and feed the concern that this Administration simply too cozy with (Russian President) Vladimir Putin,” Engel said in a written statement.
“I cannot fathom why the Administration would pursue this course except to signal a change in American foreign policy that draws our country away from western democracy’s most important institutions and aligns the United States more closely with the autocratic regime in the Kremlin,” he added.
A former U.S. official echoed the view.
“It feeds this narrative that somehow the Trump administration is playing footsie with Russia,” said the former U.S. official on condition of anonymity.
