James Comey Outplayed Trump and the White House
Former FBI Director James Comey had a simple enough idea and because of it, we can thank him for getting Michael Flynn to flip and the house of cards that is the White House.
Comey’s idea, which he stated in an interview with MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace, was simply to send two agents to the White House to talk to Flynn who at the time was the National Security Adviser.
“I sent them –something I probably wouldn’t have done or gotten away with in a more organized administration,” he said citing the administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
“In both of those administrations, there was a process. So, if the FBI had wanted to send agents into the White House to interview a senior official you would work through the White House counsel. There would be discussions, approvals . . . I thought it was early enough. Let’s just send a couple of guys over.”
It worked! Only shows how screwed up this administration is. President Trump was so busy looking at paintings to be hung on a wall that he did not notice Flynn and the agents walk by passed him and those that did, didn’t bother to ask who the agents were.

Leakin’ James Comey Flips the Table on Trump
Former FBI director James Comey testified on Friday in a closed-door session with the House and per a last minute deal, his transcripts were made available publicly within twenty-four hours. His full transcript can be seen at the end of this post.
In his testimony, Comey states he ordered an investigation into a leak because leading up to the end of the 2016 presidential campaign,Giuliani made statements that indicated that Hillary Clinton was being investigated for mishandling classified information, in this case, her private email server.
Note to Mueller: “please, please tell me you are investigating Giuliani as well.”
I’ve said plenty of times that state Bar rules and ethic clauses dictate how attorneys are to deal with the media and Giuliani has violated those rules endless amount of times.
Giuliani defended his public statements by saying the information he received was from retired FBI agents, which seems to me as the same difference. It’s still information he obtained in an on-going investigation to benefit his client.
“I was concerned that there appeared to be in the media a number of stories that might have been based on communications reporters or non-reporters like Rudy Giuliani were having with people in the New York field office.”
“Mr. Giuliani was making statements that appeared to be based on his knowledge of workings inside the FBI New York,” Comey said. “And then my recollection is there were other stories that were in the same ballpark that gave me a general concern that we may have a leak problem—unauthorized disclosure problem out of New York, and so I asked that it be investigated.”
So who is leaking now? In all seriousness, does that really come as a surprise?
