Comey Blackmail: Trump NY Times Interview Shocking in its Candor About Sessions, Comey, Mueller

TRUMP INSINUATES COMEY TRIED TO BLACKMAIL HIM.

President Donald Trump gave an interview to the New York Times on Wednesday. The outcome included some shocking statements by America’s unconventional President.

As Mike Cernovich related in a Tweet, the New York Times asked the questions and Trump responded. The questions reflected the Times agenda. Trump answered, giving honest assessments on a variety of subjects, not politically correct ones.

That said, Trump should NOT be reprimanding Jeff Sessions in public. His thoughts about the Attorney General’s job performance should have been reserved for a private one-on-one discussion.

Raw Story

In a wide-ranging Oval Office interview with the New York Times, President Donald Trump repeatedly said he would not have nominated Jeff Sessions as Attorney General if he would have known Sessions would recuse himself from the Russia investigation and threatened that Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller looking into his and his family’s finances would cross a “red line.”

Trump also appeared to allege that then-FBI Director James Comey sought to blackmail him.

“In my opinion, he shared [the British spy dossier] so that I would think he had it out there,” Mr. Trump told The Times.

“As leverage?” reporters Peter Baker, Michael S. Schmidt and Maggie Haberman asked.

“Yeah, I think so,” Mr. Trump said. “In retrospect.”

The extended excerpts of the interview contain more allegations against Comey.

Trump also denied Comey’s sworn testimony about the one-on-one meeting when Comey claimed the President cleared the room.

“Look, you look at his testimony,” Trump suggested. “His testimony is loaded up with lies, O.K.?”

Trump further claimed Comey, “illegally leaked” and had a “conflict of interest.”

Jack Pesobiac, who’s been wrong before but is probably right this time, is reporting that AG Jeff Sessions resignation is in the works:

As much as we admire Jeff Sessions, he was wrong to bring a special prosecutor on board. Trump is justified in correcting Jeff. Jeff also needs to pick up his job performance if he stays on the job, which is questionable at this point.

Insane Sh*tstain McCain Facing Questions About Trump Dossier

The Keating Five scandal, the wrecked plane, the singing like a canary to the North Vietnamese, and throwing the 2008 election to Obama are just a few of the indications that Senator John McCain lacks character.

He admitted earlier this year that the took the Russian Dossier, containing all sorts of sensational accusations against President Trump, to the FBI, where it was soon leaked.

McCain claims patriotic motives for his act.

Hmmm. The old bull thrower is throwing more bull, methinks.

Why the people of Arizona have continued to elect this warmongering fake patriot shill for Israel is beyond my ability to reason out.

The Daily Caller

Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona will face questions as part of a defamation lawsuit regarding his role in the leaking of the opposition research dossier former British spy Chris Steele compiled on President Donald Trump.

The dossier, Steele and his London firm Orbis Business Intelligence Ltd. produced, made numerous unsubstantiated claims of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The dossier also included salacious details related to Trump’s alleged sexual perversion, which the dossier indicates left him vulnerable to Russian blackmailing.

Two defamation lawsuits, one in the U.K. and one in the U.S., are being brought against Steele and Orbis by attorneys for Cyprus based venture capitalist and tech expert Aleksej Gubarev, who was accused of hacking the Democratic National Committee (DNC) by Steele’s Russian sources.

The dossier includes unsubstantiated claims alleging Gubarev’s U.S.-based global web hosting firms XBT and Webzilla planted digital bugs, transmitted viruses and attempted to alter DNC data.

According to a court document related to the British suit obtained by McClatchy, McCain discussed the dossier with former British Ambassador to Moscow Sir Andrew Wood and they, along with Steele and former Department of State official David Kramer, decided the information should be shared with British and American authorities.

“The Defendants considered that the issues were self-evidently relevant to the national security of the US, UK and their allies,” the document says, explaining why Steele and his partner, Christopher Burrows, felt they should share the document with intelligence officials.

McCain issued a statement on Jan. 11, one day after Buzzfeed News published the explosive dossier, indicating that he had received the document prior to it being made public and “Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, [he] delivered the information to the director of the FBI.”

The defendants’ counsel repeatedly reference McCain and Kramer in the court documents, likely as part of their strategy to navigate the defamation allegation by demonstrating the defendants were not acting maliciously but rather out of genuine concern for U.K. and U.S. national security. This contention is made more plausible by the fact that McCain and Kramer, who clearly had no financial motivation, came to the conclusion that the dossier should be shared with authorities.

In the court document, Steele’s barrister Nicola Cain, claims the portion of the dossier related to Gubarev, which was compiled weeks after the election and after Steele’s clients had stopped paying for the information, amounted to raw intelligence.

Val Gurvits, an attorney leading a similar U.S. defamation suit against Buzzfeed, dismissed Cain’s argument.

“The value of this document (dossier) is only if it is published,” Gurvits told McClatchy. “It is absolutely of no value to anybody unless it is published. Slander is slander when you say it to one person.”

McCain is dirty. When he gives testimony or an affadavit, he will lie if he thinks he can get away with it.

Full Text: Donald Trump, Jr. Email Chain Prior to Meeting with Russian Lawyer

RUSSIAN LAWYER NATALIA VESELNITSKAYA. MET WITH DON, JR. FOR 20 MINUTES.

Obviously, no one would turn down the opportunity to see evidence of Hillary Clinton’s criminality.

It looks like Donald, Jr. was the victim of the old bait and switch, as the meeting that promised the dirt on Hillary turned into a meeting about adoption laws regarding Russian children.

It deserves it’s own post, but in brief the question that is relevant here is who leaked Trump Jr.’s emails to the New York Times. One theory is that former FBI Director James Comey is the culprit.

From Rob Goldstone to Donald Trump Jr.

Good morning

Emin just called and asked me to contact you with something very interesting.

The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some officials documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and hear dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father.

This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump – helped by Aras and Emin.

What do you think is the best way to handle this information and would you be able to speak to Emin about it directly?

I can also send this info to your father via Rhona, but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send to you first.

Best,

Did Hillary Get the FBI to Pay for the Smear Job on Trump? (Video)

Comey was corrupt. Acting Director McCabe is corrupt. A number of agents are corrupt. The FBI is a mess.

Less than five minutes.

If anybody knows Hillary Clinton and is willing to spill the beans on her, it’s Dick Morris.

I need to Tweet to Dick that he needs to lose weight. He’s a national treasure for getting the truth out about Hillary.

Published on Jun 28, 2017

Dick explains

From the youtube comments:

It’s worse than that, since after spending taxpayer dollars to aid Hillary’s campaign, FBI used that bogus dossier as an excuse to violate the Trump campaign’s Fourth-amendment rights. False-accusations, false statements on government documents, collusion between FBM (or is it FBI?…) and Hillary campaign, are only a few of the charges Mueller will not pursue. Just as Comey smeared good to look like evil and pretended evil was good, so it appears, will Mueller.

FBI Agent Indicted for Lying About LaVoy Finicum Shooting Death

In brief, an elite FBI agent took two shots at LaVoy Finicum before there was a direct threat. The agent missed, incredibly. Then, even more incredibly the stalwart agent LIED.

Those are the accusations. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Excerpt from Oregon Live

An FBI agent accused of lying about firing two shots at Oregon standoff spokesman Robert “LaVoy” Finicum faces a five-count indictment, charging him with three counts of making a false statement and two counts of obstruction of justice.

W. Joseph Astarita, 40, dressed in a dark pinstriped suit, white dress shirt and red-and-blue striped tie, made his first appearance on the indictment Wednesday in a packed federal courtroom, with heightened security inside and in the corridors of the Mark O. Hatfield Courthouse.

A lawyer standing beside Astarita entered not guilty pleas on his behalf to all charges. Astarita will remain out of custody pending trial.

Astarita is accused of firing twice at Finicum but missing him as Finicum emerged from his white truck after swerving into a snowbank to avoid a law enforcement roadblock on U.S. 395 in Harney County.

Finicum had sped away from a state police and FBI stop moments earlier as authorities tried to arrest leaders of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation on Jan. 26, 2016. As he crashed in the snow, Finicum’s truck nearly struck another FBI agent, police said.

The indictment says Astarita, who served as a member of the elite FBI Hostage Rescue Team, “falsely stated he had not fired his weapon during the attempted arrest of Robert LaVoy Finicum, when he knew then and there that he had fired his weapon.”

Astarita is accused of lying to three supervisory FBI agents, concealing from Oregon investigators that he fired his weapon and failing to alert the FBI’s Shooting Incident Response Team about his shooting as required.

“Defendant acted with the intent to hinder, delay and prevent the communication of information from the Oregon State Police to the Federal Bureau of Investigation relating to the possible commission of a federal offense,” the indictment says.

The criminal indictment stems from an 18-month-long investigation by the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Justice.

Defense lawyer Alison Clark represented Astarita during the two-minute hearing but told the court that Astarita expects to obtain his own local attorney. U.S. Magistrate Judge Janice M. Stewart set a trial date for Aug. 29. Assistant U.S. Attorney Pamala Holsinger estimated a trial would last a week.

The indictment will likely cast a shadow on the highly trained FBI Hostage Rescue Team and fuel Finicum supporters and groups fighting government control of public land.

The story goes on to relate that it was the local sheriff who discovered the alleged crime and traveled to Washington to get the FBI off its duff and bring charges.

Footage of the LaVoy Finicum shooting:

As far as I’m concerned, LaVoy Finicum was murdered by the federal government. The agents whose shots actually killed him should also be on trial.

The corruption in the FBI runs deep. Trump was right to fire James Comey. He also should fire others in that swamp.

Trump: “I Did Not Make Any Comey Tapes”

Zerohedge

Having teased the world, and bluffed Comey and his Democratic Party supporters about the possibility of recordings of his conversations with the former FBI Director, Bloomberg reports that a ‘source familiar with the matter’ confirms that President Trump does not have any tapes.

Trump raised the possibility of tapes in a strategic fashion to ensure that Comey told the truth, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Was Trump bluffing today when he says he made no tapes? Did someone else make tapes? What’s the real reality?
