"What does Donald Trump look like?"
"Hes orange."
"And?"
"His hair is a bird"
"Does he look like a biatch?"
"Well yes actually "
" That's correct, you're free to go"

Before the firing, the President apparently told Comey, "I need loyalty, I expect loyalty." Trump denies asking for that pledge.

Well if a man as great as Donald J Trump denies it, it must not have happened. I mean, who is "James Comey"? Was he ever a billionaire? Was he ever elected president?

Let's not forget that Comey torpedoed Clinton in late October with the B.S. letter to Congress. **AND** this was after the FBI began investigating the Trump campaign for collusion.

Comey sent it privately to Congress.  The GOP leaked it.

COMEY:Can I just finish my answer, senator? And so they came in and said we can see thousands of emails from the Clinton email domain including many, many, many from the Verizon Clinton domain, Blackberry domain. They said we think we gotta get a search warrant to go get these and the Department of Justice agreed. We had to go get a search warrant. So I agreed. I authorized them to seek a search warrant.
And then I faced a choice. And I have lived my entire career by the tradition that if you can possibly avoid it, you avoid any action in the run-up to an election that might have an impact. Whether it's a dogcatcher election or President of the United States. But I sat there that morning and I could not see a door labeled 'no action' here. I could see two doors and they were both actions. One was labeled 'speak' and the other was labeled 'conceal.' 'Cause here's how I thought about it. I'm not trying to talk you into this. But I want you to know my thinking.
Having repeatedly told this Congress we're done and there's nothing there, there's no case there, there's no case there, to restart in a hugely significant way, potentially finding the emails that would reflect on her intent from the beginning and not speak about it would require an act of concealment in my view. And so I stared at speak and conceal. Speak would be really bad. There's an election in 11 days. Lordy, that would be really bad. Concealing in my view would be catastrophic not just to the FBI but well beyond, and honestly, as between really bad and catastrophic, I said to my team we've got to walk into the world of really bad. I've got to tell Congress that we're restarting this not in some frivolous way, in a hugely significant way.
And the team also told me we cannot finish this work before the election and then they worked night after night after night and they found thousands of new emails, they found classified info on Anthony Weiner('s computer). Somehow her emails were being forwarded to Anthony Weiner including classified information by (Clinton's) assistant, Huma Abedin, and so they found thousands of new emails and called me the Saturday night before the election and said thanks to the wizardry of our technology we've only had to personally read 6,000. We think we can finish tomorrow morning, Sunday.
And so I met with them and they said we found a lot of new stuff. We did not find anything that changes our view of her intent. So we're in the same place we were in July, it hasn't changed our view, and I asked them lots of questions and I said okay if that's where you are then I also have to tell Congress that we're done.
Look, this was terrible. It makes me mildly nauseous to think that we that we might have had some impact on the election but honestly it wouldn't change the decision. Everybody who disagrees with me has to come back to October 28 with me and stare at this and tell me what you would do -- would you speak or would you conceal? And I could be wrong but we honestly made a decision between those two choices that even in hindsight and this has been one of the world's most painful experiences, I would make the same decision. I would not conceal that on October 28 from the Congress.
And I sent a letter to Congress, by the way people forget this, I didn't make a public announcement, I sent a private letter to the chairs and the rankings of the oversight committees.
(Grumbling, cross-talk by Feinstein)
COMEY: I know it's a distinction without a difference in the world of leaks but it is, it was very important that I tell them instead of concealing and reasonable people can disagree but that's the reason I made that choice. And it was a hard choice. I still believe in retrospect the right choice, as painful as this has been. And I'm sorry for the long answer.

No. Comey had one choice: disclose or conceal. He didn't have the choice of making anything go away. If he had chosen conceal, whilst under a continuing duty to report to Congress he would have violated that duty.

The problem with focusing on Comey is that you're looking at the handle of the knife, rather than the blade or the hand that wields it.

He had no continuing duty to report on an investigation, especially on a politically sensitive investigation weeks before an election. DoJ and FBI policy dictated that he not reveal under those circumstances.

There wasn't any new evidence, though. A modicum of due dilligence would have been all that would have been required before "informing congress" a week before the election to conclude it was just back ups of emails they already had.

If had been paying attention to the GOP at all, he had to know that this letter would not remain private.  Given his clear mistrust bordering on contempt of Clinton as evidenced by his July press conference, I have a hard time pinning this solely on Chaffetz.

/Not to mention his apparent belief that Lynch and Obama were somehow compromised or trying to get him to absolve Clinton
//Which makes no sense when you consider that he himself had come to conclusion that no charges would be filed against her even before the matter was completely closed

It's not binary, he could have done his farking job and looked at the "new emails" to verify they weren't "new" at all and there was literally nothing there.

Instead he went gleefully to his republican masters a week before the election knowing damn well what would happen.

Meanwhile he chose to CONCEAL the existence of an active investigation of the other campaign at the same time.

Comey knew that the letter would be leaked - he'd worked in DC for over a decade - and he knew how explosive the timing would be.

And in the content of the letter was ridiculous. It was vague and made no mention of where exactly the emails were found. It let Republicans and Fox News runaway with a false narrative that about the investigation being reopened.

At worst he did it to kill Clinton's campaign. At best it was a self-serving move in case he was asked about the "discovery" in a future hearing.

PartTimeBuddha: drewsclues: But it was Comey's letter and he knew he was putting his finger on the scale and did it anyway.

No. Comey had one choice: disclose or conceal. He didn't have the choice of making anything go away. If he had chosen conceal, whilst under a continuing duty to report to Congress he would have violated that duty.

The problem with focusing on Comey is that you're looking at the handle of the knife, rather than the blade or the hand that wields it.


There's no focus on Comey, he should go down with the rest of them.
