Putin Sarcastically Offers Asylum to James Comey

Comey = Snowden -> Asylum.

Great trolling by a man who deals in reality, not fake news.

Go Putin! You have your admirers in America, my friend.

CBS News

MOSCOW (AP) — Wading into the furor surrounding the investigations of the Trump White House, Russian President Vladimir Putin used a national call-in show Thursday to disparage what he called U.S. “political infighting” that is blocking better relations with Russia.

The Russian leader even sarcastically offered political asylum to fired FBI Director James Comey.

Putin reaffirmed his denial of allegations by U.S. intelligence agencies that the Kremlin meddled in the 2016 U.S. election, saying that Russia has openly expressed its views and hasn’t engaged in any covert activities. He also tried to turn the tables on the U.S., saying it has sought to influence Russian elections by funding nongovernmental organizations as part of its aspirations for world domination.

“Turn a globe and point your finger anywhere, you will find American interests and interference there,” he said.

Putin also likened Comey to Edward Snowden, a contractor who leaked thousands of secret documents from the National Security Agency and has been living in Russia since being granted asylum in 2013.

“It sounds and looks very weird when the chief of a security agency records his conversation with the commander-in-chief and then hands it over to media via his friend,” Putin said.

“What’s the difference then between the FBI director and Mr. Snowden?” he asked. “In that case, he’s more of a rights campaigner defending a certain position than the security agency chief.”

On an acerbic note, he added that if Comey “faces some sort of persecution in connection with that, we are ready to offer political asylum in Russia to him as well.”

Deep State Hatchet Man Robert Mueller Investigating Trump for Obstruction of Justice: Report

ROBERT MUELLER. DID HE LEAK THIS STORY?

From Day 1 when the name Robert Mueller first surfaced as the Special Counsel investigating the Trump-Russian connection, we called him out as a Deep State operative with an ax to grind.

Sure enough, on Wednesday the Washington Compost broke a story that claims that Mueller is now investigating President Trump for obstruction of justice.

Mueller’s job appears to be to ruin the Trump presidency or see to it that he’s removed from office via the impeachment process.

Here’s the story as reported by a very biased fake news NPR.

NPR

Special counsel Robert Mueller, overseeing the Department of Justice Russia investigation, is looking into whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice, officials tell the Washington Post.

Former FBI Director James Comey testified last week that the president was not personally under investigation at the time of his firing on May 9. “Officials say that changed shortly after Comey’s firing,” the Post reports.

Trump Won’t Say if Conversations with Comey were Taped

At a Friday press conference President Donald Trump refused to confirm or deny that tape recordings of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey exist. Last month, he had made reference in a Tweet to the possibility that such tapes do exist.

The House Russia probe has requested that the Trump White House supply it with those tapes by June 23, as reported by The Independent.

Trump dropped a hint that he will soon reveal whether the tapes exist or not.

Excerpt from NOLA

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump refused Friday to say whether his private conversations with fired FBI Director James Comey were taped — a matter at the heart of conflicting accounts of what passed between them — and asserted that nothing in Comey’s testimony to the Senate showed collusion with Russia or obstruction of justice.

“He’s a leaker,” Trump said dismissively. “Yesterday showed no collusion, no obstruction.”

He further denied ever asking Comey for his “loyalty,” contradicting Comey’s detailed allegations in his sworn testimony.

“No I didn’t say that,” Trump stated abruptly, taking questions after meeting Romanian President Klaus Iohannis. Asked if he would make that denial under oath, he said: “100 percent.”

Trump’s aides have repeatedly dodged questions about whether conversations relevant to the Russia investigation have been recorded, and so did the president.

“Well, I’ll tell you about that maybe sometime in the very near future,” Trump said. “I’m not hinting anything.” He added: “Oh you’re going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer, don’t worry.”

Comey told the Senate of multiple conversations alone with the president, during which he said Trump pressed him to show “loyalty,” to back off on the FBI investigation of aide Michael Flynn and to disclose that Trump himself was not under investigation as the FBI probed Russian interference in the election and ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Comey said he refused on all points, told senators of the detailed memos he had written after his conversations with Trump and said he hoped those conversations were taped because he is confident of their veracity.

Trump has offered many surprises along the campaign trail and on into the White House. If the taped conversations exist, then they just might be the biggest surprise of them all.

“Liar, Leaker:” Trump Fans Breathe Sigh of Relief After Friday A.M. Tweet About Comey Breaks Two-Day Silence

Zerohedge

Trump Slams “Liar, Leaker” Comey, Claims “Total And Complete Vindication”

After an uncharacteristic two-day social media silence, in which some wondered if White House lawyers had finally taken control of Trump’s iPhone, President Trump broke a nearly two-day silence on Twitter Friday morning to slam James Comey as a “liar” and a “leaker” the day after the fired FBI director’s testimony before Congress.

In the tweet, which may be the first of many, Trump claimed “total and complete vindication” from the Senate Intel Committee hearing, in which Comey likewise accused him of “lies” and requesting the FBI end a criminal investigation.

Despite a brief statement by his private lawyer following Comey’s three hour testimony, Trump had remained silent on Twitter throughout Thursday surprising many, when much of the U.S. was glued to the TV screen, following every word in Comey’s first public comments since the president fired him early last month.

Comey said he believed Trump terminated him over the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, he also revealed that he had authorized a close friend to leak a memo to the NYT. “I didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons, but I asked him to because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel,” Comey said. Comey also disclosed that Loretta Lynch had exerted pressure on him during the Hillary Clinton probe.

During the highly charged hearing with the Senate Intelligence Committee, a blunt-talking Comey said that he was “confused” and “concerned” when Trump said in May that he was firing him for undermining the morale of the agency he had led since 2013.

“The administration then chose to defame me, and more importantly, the FBI by saying the organization was in disarray, that it was poorly led, that the workforce had lost confidence in its leader,” Comey said.

We now look forward to Comey’s response, as Trump appears unwilling to let it go.

There’s a lot of amateur legal analysis being posted all over the Internet in relation to Trump and Comey. Obviously, anyone can play amateur lawyer. Here are a few of the better points made in the comments at the Zerohedge pieces.

Handful of Dust froze25 Jun 9, 2017 7:18 AM
Four-Star General leane was interviewed by Cavuto yesterday and said Comey’s story is just that, a story and a lie. He does not beleive Trump said those things to Comey and the meetings did not go as Comey testifed.

Meanwhile, both Bill Bennet and Karl Rove said Comey’s admissions under oath show he should be indicted.

Another interesting fact that proves Comey hangs aorund with a sordid bunch is that the Columbia lawyer Comey gave the ino to leak to the press lives in Brooklyn Heights in THE SAME building as Lena Dunham!

Tell me that’s coincidence!

The take aways…

Confirmation the DNC refused the FBI access to its servers, why?

The DNC then hired CrowdStrike, presumably giving them access to its servers, again why?

Lowrenta Lynch ordered Comey to change his language and a call a criminal investigation a “matter”, why?

We learned from the hapless boobs at the NYT’s there are four “past & present government officials who wish to remain anonymous.”

We learned “the leakers” only leaked what they thought damaging to Trump, not that he was never under investigation even though all senators privy to that information knew it yet said nothing.

Jeff Sessions needs to get off his ass and appoint a special prosecutor for Loretta Lynch and James Comey and the murder investigation of DNC email leaker Seth Rich !!

Wtf are you doing Jeff ????

Comey has admitted to a number of criminal acts I think.

He admitted leaking FBI information to the media

He admitted leaking FBI information to the media in order to have an effect on the country (ie a counsel)

He admitted he was concerned enough with his meeting with Trump to make a memo of it – instead of going to the DOJ as required by law

He admitted he was concerned with Lynch telling him to not use the word investigation (which was the truth) and agreeing to it, instead of resigning or reporting it.

He demonstrates that he leaked information to the media, but not the truth that Trump was not under investigation – thus showing politcal bias in his job.

There are a few crimes there that I gather the DOJ has no option but to prosecute, how can it not? Since they are also prosecuting Winner for the exact same thing?

Law professor Jonathan Turley suggests that Comey’s leaking of the FBI memo is a crime.

Traitor Reality Winner Sought to Join Taliban, Planned to Play “pretty, cute white girl card:” “I want to burn the White House down.”

REALITY WINNER. DELUSIONAL.

I wonder who lied to the treacherous monster Reality Leigh Winner and told her she was cute. I guess she could have been self-deluded. Delusional people are not that hard to find on the left.

Winner’s burning hatred of President Trump extended to the rest of us deplorables. She allegedly wanted to go to Nepal or Kurdistan and join the Taliban. I assume that’s because she wanted to kill American soldiers.

Closer to home, she also allegedly wanted to kill President Trump.

WJLA

Reality Winner, the woman accused of leaking classified government documents to a news website, pleaded not guilty Thursday, according to the Huffington Post.

“Authorities allege Winner, a 25-year-old employee with Pluribus International Corp., accessed a classified document on her work computer in Augusta and mailed it to a news outlet,” HuffPo reports.

“In court Thursday, prosecutor Jennifer Solari said Winner wrote in a notebook that she wanted to “burn the White House down” and move to Nepal or Kurdistan. Solari also said that Winner knowingly leaked information.”

Winner was arrested Saturday. Authorities believe Winner made copies of top secret government documents that outline details of Russian attempts to hack voting software, according to The Intercept – the online publication that received the documents.

It will be difficult for Winner to get a fair trial if her case becomes “this big thing where we’re not going to tolerate leakers,” Winner’s mother, Billie Winner-Davis, told The Associated Press in an interview.

“I think they’re going to try to make an example out of her because of the political climate right now,” Winner-Davis said.

Yes, we should make an example out of your daughter, Madam. The only good thing about her is that had a dog and a cat, which I hope you’re taking care of for her.

Daily Mail

Reality Winner portrayed little emotion in court Thursday as she was denied bond in her federal espionage case after the government alleged that she may have stolen other top secret information and poses an ongoing risk to national security.

The Air Force veteran, 25, is accused of mailing a classified report on a Russian military intelligence cyber-attack in 2016 to a news website.

She entered a plea of not guilty before Judge Brian K. Epps at U.S. District Court in downtown Augusta, Georgia on Thursday afternoon after she was charged with a single count of ‘willful retention and transmission of national defense information’.

Winner was brought into court, in an orange jumpsuit with her hair braided in a top knot, by two federal marshalls. Her hands were cuffed behind her back and she appeared to stand to attention when addressed by the judge.

She spoke only to respond: ‘Yes, your honor’ in a soft voice.
The prosecution made their case for Winner to be detained based on evidence that one prosecutor called ‘downright frightening’.

The prosecution alleged that Winner is ‘extremely intelligent’ and may have removed information from a ‘Top Secret computer on a USB drive’ while she was on active duty and stated that the thumb drive has not been located.

The government is also concerned about what other intelligence Winner possesses as she told her mother in a recorded phone conversation from prison that she ‘screwed up’ over those ‘documents’.

The prosecution stated that Winner had a fascination with the Middle East and Islamic terrorism. The government claimed that they had found handwritten notes during a search at Winner’s home which appeared to sympathize with Osama bin Laden and other terrorists.

Authorities claim another handwritten statement found during a search of Winner’s home allegedly read: ‘I want to burn the White House down and go live in Kurdistan.’

Prosecutors said in recorded jailhouse calls that Winner told her mother how to play her side of the story in the media.

They also said in a phone call she made to her sister that she was confident in how to ‘play the court’ during her bond hearing.

‘I’m pretty, white and cute,’ she allegedly told her sister.

Prosecutors said Winner told her sister she would braid her hair and cry in court.

In a recorded prison call, Winner also reportedly asked her mother to transfer $30,000 out of her bank account and instructed her what to say to the press.

Winner’s mother, Billie Winner-Davis, and stepfather, Gary Davis, sat directly behind her in court along with their friend, Anne Demasi.

What has been revealed about Winner-Loser is probably typical of deranged leftists in America. From her ugly tats to her body builder’s muscularity to her attitude, everything screams loser about her. She was destined to be a lonely cat lady or a tranny or a dykish lesbian even before breaking the law.

America is safer with her off the streets.

LOOKS SWEET AND INNOCENT HERE.

Nasty Lesbian Rosie O’Donnell Donates to Reality Winner’s GoFundMe

REALITY LEIGH WINNER. ADMITS TO STEALING TOP SECRET MATERIAL.

ROSIE O’DONNELL. TRUMP HATING WHINER.

Rosie O’Donnell must enjoy being so widely hated. The walking billboard (We are you???!!!) is urging everyone to donate to traitor Reality Leigh Winner’s GoFundMe.

Western Journalism

Calling her a “brave young patriot,” actress Rosie O’Donnell contributed $1,000 to a GoFundMe account set up to assist the woman who was arrested for allegedly leaking classified information from the National Security Administration.

Reality Leigh Winner, 25, was charged Monday with removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet. The document, which she sent to The Intercept, claimed Russian government hackers attempted to hack more than 100 local election officials before the November election.

O’Donnell told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Wednesday that she made the donation and hopes to help Winner.

“I would love to help her and her family,” O’Donnell said. “I would love to talk to the mother and offer any help.”

The GoFundMe page was set up by Shirley Fink, of Fairfax, Va. She said her goal is to “assist with loss of wages, counseling from this traumatic experience and to be able to recover from this as Reality and her family rebuilds their lives.”

Rosie is surely salivating with delight at the prospect of the widely reviled Winner-Loser turning lesbian in prison, if she wasn’t already a lesbian.

Rosie would undoubted enjoy bumping tacos with the fresh, young Winner-Loser.

Trump’s Attorney Marc Kasowitz Responds to Leaker and Liar Comey’s Testimony (Text and Video)

President Donald Trump let his lawyer and his son Donald Jr. do his talking and Tweeting for him today.

Tentacle porn has broken into the top of the news cycle today, somewhat derailing the true big story–the Senate testimony of former FBI Director James Comey. I assume that the relationship of Jew reporter Kurt Eichenwald to tentacle porn is intended as a distraction from a story that left the enemies of Donald Trump butt hurt in a bad way.

I’ve bolded the most significant takeaways, which will be analyzed many times over in the next few days.

CNBC

Below are Kasowitz’s remarks, unedited as prepared for delivery:

I am Marc Kasowitz, President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Contrary to numerous false press accounts leading up to today’s hearing, Mr. Comey has now finally confirmed publicly what he repeatedly told the President privately: The President was not under investigation as part of any probe into Russian interference. He also admitted that there is no evidence that a single vote changed as a result of any Russian interference.

Mr Comey’s testimony also makes clear that the President never sought to impede the investigation into attempted Russian interference in the 2016 election, and in fact, according to Mr. Comey, the President told Mr. Comey “it would be good to find out” in that investigation if there were “some ‘satellite’ associates of his who did something wrong.” And he did not exclude anyone from that statement.

Consistent with that statement, the President never, in form or substance, directed or suggested that Mr. Comey stop investigating anyone, including suggesting that that Mr. Comey “let Flynn go.” As he publicly stated the next day, he did say to Mr. Comey, “General Flynn is a good guy, he has been through a lot,” and also “asked how is General Flynn is doing.” Admiral Rogers testified that the President never “directed to do anything . . . illegal, immoral, unethical or inappropriate” and never “pressured to do so.” Director Coates said the same thing. The President likewise never pressured Mr. Comey.

The President also never told Mr. Comey, “I need loyalty, I expect loyalty” in form or substance. Of course, the Office of the President is entitled to expect loyalty from those who are serving in an administration, and, from before this President took office to this day, it is overwhelmingly clear that there have been and continue to be those in government who are actively attempting to undermine this administration with selective and illegal leaks of classified information and privileged communications. Mr. Comey has now admitted that he is one of these leakers.

Today, Mr. Comey admitted that he unilaterally and surreptitiously made unauthorized disclosures to the press of privileged communications with the President. The leaks of this privileged information began no later than March 2017 when friends of Mr. Comey have stated he disclosed to them the conversations he had with the President during their January 27, 2017 dinner and February 14, 2017 White House meeting. Today, Mr. Comey admitted that he leaked to friends his purported memos of these privileged conversations, one of which he testified was classified. He also testified that immediately after he was terminated he authorized his friends to leak the contents of these memos to the press in order to “prompt the appointment of a special counsel.” Although Mr. Comey testified he only leaked the memos in response to a tweet, the public record reveals that the New York Times was quoting from these memos the day before the referenced tweet, which belies Mr. Comey’s excuse for this unauthorized disclosure of privileged information and appears to entirely retaliatory. We will leave it the appropriate authorities to determine whether this leaks should be investigated along with all those others being investigated.

In sum, it is now established that the President was not being investigated for colluding with the Russians or attempting to obstruct that investigation. As the Committee pointed out today, these important facts for the country to know are virtually the only facts that have not leaked during the long course of these events.

As he said yesterday, the President feels completely vindicated and is eager to continue moving forward with his agenda with this public cloud removed.

Thank you.

NPR digs a bit into Kasowitz’s response. There’ll be ten thousand articles written on today’s testimony and later the books will come out.
