CNN Reports Comey Has Changed His Mind, Now Believes Trump Tried To Influence Him

CNN is fake news, but on the other hand fired FBI Director James Comey has flourished as a member of the Deep State conspiracy to subvert Americanism. Comey is surely told what to do and what to say by those above him in the hierarchy.

So, will Comey testify that Donald Trump was attempting to obstruct justice, a claim that will likely lead to impeachment proceedings being started?

It’s very likely.

Imagine how distracted the country will be as the impeachment of President Trump plays out every night on the evening news. Imagine the looting of the nations’ wealth by (((you know who))) as no one pays any attention to anything except the story that Trump is a Russian agent.

Clearly disappointed to have been left out of the headline heroics from Friday night (courtesy of The Washington Post and The New York Times), CNN has decided that anon-sourced perspectives on officials’ feelings now warrants reportage.

The latest in the sad sage of mainstream media’s downward spiral, as The Hill reports, [4] is that former FBI Director James Comey is expected to testify that he believes President Trump was deliberately trying to meddle in the FBI’s investigation of Russian interference in the presidential election, according to a report late Friday.

Despite swearing under oath that he “had never” been influenced during an investigation, [5] and further that if he had he would have reported it immediately…

CNN now reports [6] that, according to a source, Comey has come to believe the president intended to influence him…

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.

Sources say Comey had reached no conclusion about the President’s intent before he was fired.

But Comey did immediately recognize that the new President was not following normal protocols during their interactions.

So to clarify, a disgruntled fired employee, who previously said no effort to influence was undertaken, has now changed his mind, according to sources, and thinks his former boss was trying to influence him (according to sources).

Video: FBI Director Mueller Doesn’t Know Anything About IRS Investigation

Three minutes of FBI Director Robert Mueller squirming in ignorance about the FBI investigation of Obama’s IRS. He looks really incompetent here.

Mueller is as of a few hours ago the special prosecutor investigation the Trump/Russia connection.

Published on Jun 13, 2013

Robert Mueller could offer no information under questioning from Rep. Jim Jordan about the investigation into the IRS for its targeting of conservative groups seeking tax-exemption.

Special Prosecutor Mueller is the Consummate Deep State Insider

This post was pieced together on the fly following the breaking news that Robert Mueller has been named special counsel in the probe of Russian influence in the 2016 election.

What’s most important to realize is the Mueller is part of the D.C. old boy’s network. Even if you believe nothing else, that’s irrefutable.

If you believe that the truth about the 9/11 attacks was swept under the rug, then you have to believe that Mueller was the leader of that effort. That makes him another swamp creature.

Wikipedia

He served as Acting Deputy Attorney General of the United States Department of Justice for several months, before officially becoming the FBI Director on September 4, 2001, just one week before the September 11 attacks against the United States.

On May 12, 2011, it was reported that President Obama had asked Director Mueller to continue at the helm of the FBI for another 2 years beyond his normal term, expiring on September 4, 2013.[12] The Senate approved this request on July 27, 2011.[13] On September 4, 2013, Mueller was replaced by James Comey.[14]

From the comments section at Zerohedge

NOW, we are really talking Deep State: Mueller is the grandnephew of Richard Bissell, the fired CIA director of plans — fired by President Kennedy before his assassination. Mueller’s wife’s maiden name is Cabell: another CIA deputy director fired by President Kennedy was Gen. Cabell, whose brother Earl Cabell was mayor of Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963!

And Mueller’s family wealth comes from his mother’s side, the Truesdale side of the family: something to do with helping out blowing up competitors’ refineries for the Rockefeller family and being awarded with a railroad?

And Mueller was appointed chief of the criminal division of the DOJ under President Geo. H.W. Bush when the BCCI investigation began getting closer to the presidency – – covered on the the chief enforcement officer side at Treasury by having John Walker, cousin to the Bush-Walker family, of course, in that position. And it was Judge John Walker who would later have clerking for him James Comey, future director of the FBI!

Lawsuit: FBI Anthrax Investigation a Sham

Mueller Led 1991 BCCI Cover Up

The Conservative Treehouse offers a dissenting view, opining that Mueller will lead the charge in broadening the investigation into Hillary and Obama:

If the objective is to “get” Trump, then Mueller’s the man. That’s why he’s being so widely praised by establishment figures as I write the finishing touches on this post.

Breaking! Former FBI Director Mueller Appointed Special Counsel Of Russia Probe

ROBERT MUELLER. NAMED SPECIAL PROSECUTOR BY DOJ.

The swamp is draining President Donald Trump. He’s bloodied from a thousand cuts of the Deep State’s sword. Today he has been sliced and diced again, as Rod Rosenstein, Acting Attorney General, appointed a special counsel, aka special prosecutor, to lead the investigation into the affairs of Trump.

While ongoing FBI, media, and Congressional investigations have yielded no evidence of wrongdoing by Trump or any of his associates, today’s news will likely further cripple the already mortally wounded Trump administration.

This news should be seen as just another step in the soft coup that is intended to overthrow the lawfully elected president, an outsider with no Washington ties or supporters.

Excerpt from Zerohedge

The Department of Justice has announced the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as Special Counsel to oversee the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, including potential collusion between Trump campaign associates and Russian officials.

Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made the decision to appoint Mueller, the Justice Department told reporters Wednesday. It isn’t clear if Trump had a role in the decision, Bloomberg reported.

The appointment of Mueller, who oversaw the FBI during the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, comes at a time when the White House is reeling from Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey and allegations that Trump asked Comey in February to end his probe of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

While it’s often difficult to predict how politicians will react, the appointment of Muller should ease some of the tensions and gridlock in Washington DC as it should be seen as an overture to Democrats who have been demanding just this from the DOJ.

Additionally, since the Trump administration would likely not have conceded to this appointment if it had something material to hide, it will be perceived as validating, at least initially, Trump’s claims that he has not colluded with Russia, although the risk of a potential surprise announcement by the Special Counsel will linger as a cloud over the White House – and markets – for months to come.

Here’s Rosenstein’s letter. Click to enlarge it.

Mueller, 72, was appointed FBI Director by President George W. Bush in 2001 and served until 2013, when Comey took over. The DOJ has confirmed he will resign from his private law firm to avoid any conflicts of interest. In the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks, as the U.S. was ramping up security, he joined then-Deputy Attorney General Comey in threatening to resign if the White House overruled a Justice Department opinion that domestic wiretapping without a warrant was unconstitutional.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions previously recused himself from any involvement in the Russia investigation due to is role as a prominent campaign adviser and surrogate.

Mueller’s appointment aims to quell the wave of criticism that President Donald Trump and his administration have faced since Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last week in the middle of the FBI’s intensifying investigation into contacts between Trump campaign associates and Russian officials. That criticism swelled on Tuesday evening as excerpts of a memo Comey wrote in February surfaced, in which Comey writes Trump asked him to drop the FBI investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

As Bloomberg adds, unlike Comey, who Trump charged was a “showboat” and a “grandstander,” Mueller typically shied away from making comments to reporters and routinely refused to discuss ongoing investigations. He also won wide praise as FBI director from Democrats and Republicans in Congress, an attribute that may help steady concerns about the handling of the Russia probe.

While both Obama and Hillary Clinton were clearly implicated in numerous crimes during the Obama years, no independent investigations of those two Washington insiders ever took place.

The contrast is staggering. The implications for freedom and democracy are enormous. Whatever this country is now, it is no longer the country established by the Founding Fathers.

Impeachment, Prison for Trump Thunders Across Media, Capital Hill in Wake of #comeymemo

Kablooey! Yet another crisis based on “sources say” has enveloped President Donald J. Trump again. One of the usual suspects, in this case the New York Times, has published a story claiming that fired FBI Director James Comey had written a memo to himself alleging that President Trump had asked him to drop an investigation into the ties between Russia and fired National Security Director Michael Flynn.

A memo to himself? What’s the deal with Comey? Is he a teenage girl keeping a secret diary?

Excerpt from Huffington Post

xactly one week after President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, the White House is battling reports that the president asked Comey to end the investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

A bombshell report in The New York Times on Tuesday says Trump made the request of Comey during a February meeting in the Oval Office. Comey reportedly detailed the meeting in a memo, which an associate shared with the newspaper. Flynn, who was ousted from his job in February, is one of several Trump associates under FBI investigation over potential ties to Russia.

Reuters and NBC News later confirmed the Times’ report.

“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” the president told Comey, according to the memo, the Times and NBC reported. “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”

The Feb. 14 meeting took place after Attorney General Jeff Sessions had been confirmed by the Senate, but before he had recused himself from the Russia investigation.

A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to comment to HuffPost Tuesday evening on whether Sessions had seen the memo at the time, or if he was aware of what Trump reportedly told Comey.

The White House, in a statement to HuffPost, denied events described in the memo:

While the President has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the President has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn. The President has the utmost respect for our law enforcement agencies, and all investigations. This is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the President and Mr. Comey.

“Also please note that the Acting Director McCabe said last week that the WH had not interfered in the investigation,” the White House statement added.

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe testifed before the Senate Intelligence Committee that “there has been no effort to impede our investigation to date.”

“It is my opinion and belief that the FBI will continue to pursue this investigation vigorously and completely,” McCabe said.

Trump himself has also denied asking Comey to drop the Russia investigation.

Since the post was started the Tweets have picked up in volume.

Fake News: General Mike Flynn To Testify Against Trump in Exchange for Immunity

The Wall Street Journal created high expectations among the #nevertrump set today when it published a story claiming that General Michael Flynn is ready to talk, but only if immunized from prosecution.

Fox News is reporting the same thing, that General Flynn will roll over on President Trump if he’s given immunity from prosecution.

You can read his lawyer’s letter. The WSJ story doesn’t jibe with the letter.

Meanwhile a variety of top Tweeters have reached the same conclusion as Paul Joseph Watson: fake news.

It’s sad when you have to go to Twitter to get the real scoop.

Report: Trump’s lawyer hand-delivered Michael Flynn a secret plan to lift sanctions on Russia implicating Trump in TREASON

FELIX SATER, ALLEGED MAFIA. THEY LEFT OUT THE WORD “JEWISH.”

[Note: This post was prepared early Monday morning. I held it back, waiting to see how things would shake out. It’s still not clear what the fallout will be. I’m posting it with uncertainty still hanging in the air.]

The Internet was very busy Sunday night, implicating American president Donald Trump in pedophilia (via his association with MILO Yiannopoulas) and in treason via his association with General Michael Flynn. I have separate posts on MILO. This one is about allegations relating to Trump’s Jewish lawyer and General Flynn–allegations sparking renewed calls for Trump’s removal from office.

This story also links Trump to the Mafia. National Vanguard dishes the info on Trump’s Jewish associates Felix Sater and Michael Cohen, who are at the center of this contrived controversy..

Business Insider

Trump Organization lawyer Michel Cohen hand-delivered a “peace” plan for Russia and Ukraine to former national security adviser Michael Flynn before Flynn was asked to resign, the New York Times reported on Sunday.

The plan, which involved lifting sanctions on Russia, was drafted by Cohen — a close confidante of President Donald Trump who has served as his organization’s special counsel since 2007 — and Felix Sater, a Russian-American real estate developer who has helped the Trump Organization scout deals in Russia.

Sater, a businessman formerly linked with the Mafia who has boasted of his “relationship with Trump,” told the Washington Post last May that he “handled all of the negotiations” for the Trump Organization’s dealings in Russia in the mid-2000’s.

Ukrainian lawmaker Andrii V. Artemenko, who met with Trump’s campaign team during the election, was also involved in drafting the proposal. Artemenko told the Times he had evidence of Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko’s corruption that could lead to his ouster.

Poroshenko has been locked in a war with pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine since he took power in 2014, and is considered more friendly to the West than his ousted predecessor, Viktor Yanukovych. Yanukovych’s political rise was heavily aided by former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

Cohen, Sater, and Artemek met in a hotel lobby on Park Avenue in Manhattan in late January to draw up the proposal, the Times said, which Cohen claimed was aimed at “bringing about peace” between Ukraine and Russia. Violence flared up in eastern Ukraine last month between the Ukrainian army and pro-Russia separatists, in what amounted to the worst fighting in nearly a year.

Cohen said he has not discussed the plan with Trump directly, and is waiting to see how Trump’s new national security adviser — who has yet to be named — will address it. Trump has suggested he would be open to lifting sanctions on Russia if Moscow proved a useful ally in fighting terrorism.

“If you get along and if Russia is really helping us,” Trump told the Wall Street Journal last month, “why would anybody have sanctions if somebody’s doing some really great things?”

Cohen, Trump’s lawyer, was named in the explosive, unsubstantiated dossier presented by top US intelligence officials to Trump and senior lawmakers last month that has increased scrutiny of his presidential campaign’s ties to Russia.

The memos, compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele for an opposition research firm in Washington, DC, said that Cohen was part of the “ongoing secret liaison relationship between the New York tycoon’s campaign and the Russian leadership,” and that he met secretly with Kremlin officials in Prague in August 2016.

Cohen, whose wife is Ukrainian, insisted shortly after the dossier was published that he was in California at the time of the alleged meeting, and that he had never been to Prague.

The FBI is currently reviewing the allegations made in the dossier, and is pursuing three separate investigations into Russian hacking that targeted prominent Democrats during the US election. The intelligence community is also examining phone calls made between Trump associates and Russian officials throughout the campaign.

As this post is being composed early Monday morning before the start of the business day, no official Washington responses are yet available to analyze. However, Twitter exploded (it always explodes) in rage against Trump’s “treason.”

The correct way to view these far left Tweets and many others is to recognize that the (((Deep State))) is fighting for its existence. If the treason that those folks have done sees the light of day, they will be the ones in prison, not Donald Trump.
