Trump v. Comey

Here is a timeline and side by side look at what we know Trump was doing and tweeting and what James Comey was memorializing. Perhaps it will provide a bit of insight looked at in 20-20 hindsight.

Jan. 6, 2017: Comey and other intelligence officials travel to Trump Tower in New York to brief the president-elect on the intelligence community’s findings about Russian interference in the campaign. According to Comey’s prepared Senate testimony, he is chosen to inform Mr. Trump privately of salacious material gathered by a former British intelligence official that the U.S. had not verified.

This is the first time Comey meets Mr. Trump.

On Jan. 7:

Trump tweeted: Intelligence stated very strongly there was absolutely no evidence that hacking affected the election results. Voting machines not touched!  Only reason the hacking of the poorly defended DNC is discussed is that the loss by the Dems was so big that they are totally embarrassed! Having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. Only “stupid” people, or fools, would think that it is bad! We…have enough problems around the world without yet another one. When I am President, Russia will respect us far more than they do now and both countries will, perhaps, work together to solve some of the many great and pressing problems and issues of the WORLD!

On Jan 8.

Before I, or anyone, saw the classified and/or highly confidential hacking intelligence report, it was leaked out to . So serious!

Jan 11.

  1. We had a great News Conference at Trump Tower today. A couple of FAKE NEWS organizations were there but the people truly get what’s going on

  2. Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to “leak” into the public. One last shot at me.Are we living in Nazi Germany?

  3. I win an election easily, a great “movement” is verified, and crooked opponents try to belittle our victory with FAKE NEWS. A sorry state!

  4. Russia has never tried to use leverage over me. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA – NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!

  5. Russia just said the unverified report paid for by political opponents is “A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FABRICATION, UTTER NONSENSE.” Very unfair!

    ON JANUARY 13,  Trump tweets that he has ordered “his people” to do an investigation and

    report to him w/in 90 days.  @ mid April.

    1. released by “Intelligence” even knowing there is no proof, and never will be. My people will have a full report on hacking within 90 days!

    2. Totally made up facts by sleazebag political operatives, both Democrats and Republicans – FAKE NEWS! Russia says nothing exists. Probably…

      THEN,  THIS HAPPENS ON JANUARY 26: YATES IS UPSET

      Jan. 26, 2017

      Yates called McGahn first thing that morning to tell him she had “a very sensitive matter” that had to be discussed face to face. McGahn agreed to meet with Yates later that afternoon. Later that day, Yates traveled to the White House along with a senior member of the DOJ’s National Security Division, who was overseeing the matter.

      It was Yates’ first meeting with McGahn in his office, which also acts as a sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF).

      Yates said she began their meeting by laying out the press accounts and statements made by Vice President Mike Pence and other high-ranking White House officials about Flynn’s conduct “that we knew not to be the truth.”

      She told McGahn how the DOJ acquired that information and walked through Flynn’s conduct “in a fair amount of detail.”

      JANUARY 27:  YATES RETURNS

      Jan. 27, 2017

      Yates’ second in-person meeting with McGahn happened the next day. McGahn called Yates in the morning and asked if she could come back to his office, and she returned that afternoon. One of the topics discussed was whether Flynn could be prosecuted for his conduct.

      One of the questions McGahn asked Flynn was, “Why does it matter to DOJ if one White House official lies to another?” She explained that it “was a whole lot more than that,” and reviewed the same concerns they had outlined on Jan. 26.

      McGahn expressed his concern that taking action might interfere with the FBI investigation of Flynn, and Yates said it wouldn’t. “It wouldn’t really be fair of us to tell you this and then expect you to sit on your hands,” Yates had told McGahn.

      McGahn asked if he could look at the underlying evidence of Flynn’s conduct, and she said they would work with the FBI over the weekend and “get back with him on Monday morning.”

      NEXT MOVE:  TRUMP ASKS COMEY TO “DINNER”

      COMEY’S DINNER DATE:

      Jan. 27, 2017: Comey is invited to dinner at the White House with Mr. Trump. According to Comey’s account, he had expected others to attend, but found himself alone with the president in a dining room. Further, the dinner progressed into a “very awkward conversation,” with Mr. Trump telling Comey, “I need loyalty, I expect loyalty,” according to Comey, who “didn’t move, speak, or change” his facial expression “in any way during the awkward silence that followed.”

      “We simply looked at each other in silence,” Comey says.

      JAN 28:  TRUMP TWEETS WITH CONFIDENCE

      1. …dwindling subscribers and readers.They got me wrong right from the beginning and still have not changed course, and never will. DISHONEST

      2. Thr coverage about me in the and the gas been so false and angry that the times actually apologized to its…..

      3. The failing has been wrong about me from the very beginning. Said I would lose the primaries, then the general election. FAKE NEWS!

        FLYNN RESIGNATION/FIRING

        Feb. 13, 2017: Michael Flynn resigns as national security adviser.

        Feb. 14, 2017: Following a meeting in the Oval Office, Mr. Trump asks Comey to stay behind to “talk about Mike Flynn,” according to Comey’s testimony. Mr. Trump allegedly tells Comey that Flynn “is a good guy,” saying he hopes Comey “can let this go.” Comey is noncommittal and briefs senior FBI leadership on the “very concerning” interaction, Comey writes. Comey does not inform DOJ officials about what Mr. Trump said, but implored Attorney General Jeff Sessions to prevent future one-on-one discussions between the two, according to the testimony. Sessions does not reply, Comey says.

        TRUMP RELATIVELY MUM

        The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington? Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc?

        BUT AFTER THE NEWS BREAKS ITS A MORNING TWITTER STORM 

        FEB 15

        1. The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by “intelligence” like candy. Very un-American!

        2. Crimea was TAKEN by Russia during the Obama Administration. Was Obama too soft on Russia?

        3. Thank you to Eli Lake of The Bloomberg View – “The NSA & FBI…should not interfere in our politics…and is” Very serious situation for USA

        4. Information is being illegally given to the failing & by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?).Just like Russia

        5. This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign.

        6. The fake news media is going crazy with their conspiracy theories and blind hatred. & are unwatchable. is great!

          JUMPING AHEAD TO MARCH 30 COMEY DESCRIBED A TELEPHONE CALL FROM TRUMP

      March 30 Phone Call

      On the morning of March 30, the President called me at the FBI. He described the Russia investigation as “a cloud” that was impairing his ability to act on behalf of the country. He said he had nothing to do with Russia, had not been involved with hookers in Russia, and had always assumed he was being recorded when in Russia. He asked what we could do to “lift the cloud.” I responded that we were investigating the matter as quickly as we could, and that there would be great benefit, if we didn’t find anything, to our having done the work well. He agreed, but then re-emphasized the problems this was causing him.
      THE NEXT DAY (MORNING) TRUMP TWEETS:

     

    Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!

    LAST CONVERSATION   on APRIL 11

April 11 Phone Call

On the morning of April 11, the President called me and asked what I had done about his request that I “get out” that he is not personally under investigation. I replied that I had passed his request to the Acting Deputy Attorney General, but I had not heard back. He replied that “the cloud” was getting in the way of his ability to do his job. He said that perhaps he would have his people reach out to the Acting Deputy Attorney General. I said that was the way his request should be handled. I said the White House Counsel should contact the leadership of DOJ to make the request, which was the traditional channel.
He said he would do that and added, “Because I have been very loyal to you, very loyal; we had that thing you know.” I did not reply or ask him what he meant by “that thing.” I said only that the way to handle it was to have the White House Counsel call the Acting Deputy Attorney General. He said that was what he would do and the call ended.
That was the last time I spoke with President Trump.
No comment by Pres. Trump until April 13

Things will work out fine between the U.S.A. and Russia. At the right time everyone will come to their senses & there will be lasting peace!

ON MAY 8 THINGS HEAT UP

The Russia-Trump collusion story is a total hoax, when will this taxpayer funded charade end?
