A weekend ago, Donald Trump uncovered that Barack Obama had wiretapped his telephones amid the 2016 race. From that point forward, numerous
disclosures have become known demonstrating the numerous unlawful things the administration did to attempt and bring down Trump.
Presently, FBI Director James Comey has ended up in high temp water over his part in this…
The former British spy who authored the now-infamous dossier on Donald Trump, alleging ties between Trump and Russia, reportedly reached an agreement with the FBI a few weeks before the election for the bureau to pay him to continue his work. The agreement to compensate M16 agent
Christopher Steele for his findings came as intelligence agencies reached a controversial consensus that Russians had interfered in the election by hacking liberals’ email accounts.
Trump was quick to assure the public that the dossier was simply “fake news.” After the dossier went public, communications between the FBI and the former spy were ceased-and he was never paid according to plan.
Still, the relationship is extremely questionable, especially given that the FBI had previously hired Steele to help a U.S. inquiry in FIFA.
Steele had more than two decades working on Russia-related issues for British intelligence. But his dossier was widely unsubstantiated. His claims remain unverified, and they have been strongly disputed by Trump and his team.
House Speaker Paul Ryan has confessed that he has seen “no evidence so far” of Trump campaign contacts with Russia. The revelation that the FBI agreed to pay Steele only further damages his credibility.
Steele was reportedly frustrated when FBI Director James Comey made a public announcement that they were investing a new batch of Clinton emails just 11 days before the election.
In January, Trump was provided a summary of the core allegations of Steele’s dossier-and news of that briefing was soon public knowledge. BuzzFeed became the source of controversy when they posted a copy of Steele’s dossier online-without any evidence of its truth. “It’s all fake news,” Trump said. “It’s phony stuff. It did not happen. “
Trump later tweeted that Steele was a “fake spy.” Democrats in the House have reached out to Steele since this has unfolded, to determine whether he is willing to testify or cooperate. He has not responded.

COMEY GOT CRUSHED: WHAT WIKILEAKS LEAKED THIS MORNING PROVES THAT JAMES COMEY IS A LIAR!
”Paris Swade for Liberty Writers reports, On Monday morning, FBI director James Comey told the House intelligence Committee that the Republican Party emails were not released in 2016.

Comey “That Was “O S-H-I-T” Moment”! Chaffetz,Gowdy, Issa,Jordan! Issa Reveals Lies! Comey Rattled!
FBI Director James Comey has been fired, according to the White House.
“Today, President Donald J. Trump informed FBI Director James Comey that he has been terminated and removed from office,” the White House statement reads.
“President Trump acted based on the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions,” the statement said.
President Trump has previously been critical of Comey, suggesting that his actions helped Hillary Clinton during the campaign, while Clinton blamed Comey and his late announcement about the FBI’s investigation into her email server contributed to her electoral college loss.
“FBI Director Comey was the best thing that ever happened to Hillary Clinton in that he gave her a free pass for many bad deeds! The phony Trump/Russia story was an excuse used by the Democrats as justification for losing the election. Perhaps Trump just ran a great campaign?” Trump wrote in two tweets on May 2.
In the wake of those tweets, press secretary Sean Spicer said “the president has confidence in the director” on May 3.
At the White House press briefing today, however, Spicer was reluctant to repeat that statement without first checking with the president. When ABC News’ Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl pressed Spicer today about the Comey’s inaccurate statements to Congress regarding Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s handling of emails, Spicer said he’d have to speak to the president first.
“In light of what you are telling me, I don’t want to start speaking on behalf of the president without speaking to him first,” Spicer said.
Comey, 56, was appointed to head the FBI in September 2013 by then-President Barack Obama. FBI directors typically serve a 10-year term, and his firing today means that he will have only served less than four years. Prior to that, he served as a deputy attorney general and a state’s attorney.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, was one of the first politicians outside of the White House to release a statement. Graham acknowledged that it “was a difficult decision for all concerned” and said that he appreciates Comey’s public service.
“Given the recent controversies surrounding the director, I believe a fresh start will serve the FBI and the nation well. I encourage the President to select the most qualified professional available who will serve our nation’s interests,” Graham’s statement concluded.

The Comey affair; lies and reality pass like trains in the night by Jon Rappoport
By Jon Rappoport
Where was the devastating revelation about Trump's crimes during James Comey's Congressional testimony yesterday?
"Who produced this stinker? Find out and fire him. I thought I was the head of a movie studio. Apparently, I'm marketing sleeping pills. I conked out after watching five minutes of Comey..."
If James Comey's testimony before Congress yesterday were a Hollywood movie, and if the press weren't obliged to make a very big deal out of it, the studio that produced it would have shut it down and eaten the box office losses. The movie theaters would have been empty, except for a few stragglers getting out of the rain.
We did learn that Comey leaked his "memo" of a conversation with Trump (about the Michael Flynn investigation) to the press. So the FBI director is a leaker. And we only have Comey's word that his "memo" notes were correct and accurate.
Then Comey stated that Attorney General Loretta Lynch told him to call his investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server a "matter," not an investigation. So the former Attorney General was a partisan Hillary supporter.
Comey asserted that Trump "pressured" him to cease investigating Michael Flynn. Trump didn't order Comey to stop that probe. And Trump could have, because the president, in the chain of command, is over and above the Justice Department and the FBI. Oops. That's right.
Attorney Alan Dershowitz : "Comey confirmed that under our Constitution, the president has the authority to direct the FBI to stop investigating any individual. I paraphrase, because the transcript is not yet available: the president can, in theory, decide who to investigate, who to stop investigating, who to prosecute and who not to prosecute. The president is the head of the unified executive branch of government, and the Justice Department and the FBI work under him and he may order them to do what he wishes."
"As a matter of law, Comey is 100 percent correct. As I have long argued, and as Comey confirmed in his written statement, our history shows that many presidents---from Adams to Jefferson, to Lincoln, to Roosevelt, to Kennedy, to Bush 1, and to Obama---have directed the Justice Department with regard to ongoing investigations. The history is clear, the precedents are clear, the constitutional structure is clear, and common sense is clear."
Was Comey investigating Trump's "Russia connections?" Business Insider: "President Donald Trump's private attorney, Marc Kasowitz, on Wednesday said his client felt 'completely and totally vindicated' by James Comey's prepared opening statement to the Senate Intelligence Committee."
"Comey's remarks, released Wednesday in advance of Thursday's Senate hearing, confirmed previous statements by Trump that Comey had told him three times that he was not personally being investigated amid the FBI's wide-ranging inquiry into Russian meddling in the election and the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russia."
So...where were Comey's revelations yesterday? Nowhere. Where were his explosive charges about Trump's crimes? Nowhere.
Comey should really take a long vacation. He should disappear from public life for quite some time. He's embarrassing himself.
Recall the last bad movie Comey starred in. The Hillary email server scandal. The FBI probe was off, it was on, it was off. Early in this fiasco, Comey delivered a televised press conference. FBI directors don't hold press conferences, but Comey did. He simultaneously played the role of FBI head, grand jury, Attorney General, and Constitutional jurist. He only held one of those jobs, but that didn't stop him. He laid out, end to end, Hillary Clinton's violations of federal law governing the handling of classified materials. He failed to note that "hostile intent" is no part of that law. He failed to note that negligence is the only standard for prosecution. He said that since Hillary (who was surely negligent) didn't intend to cause harm to the nation, he wasn't recommending prosecution. Now THAT should have been the subject of a Congressional hearing. But it wasn't.
Before that, Comey starred in a little known movie called HSBC.
In 2013, before his appointment as FBI director, Comey was brought in by the scandal-ridden HSBC Bank, to oversee efforts to clean up its act---in particular, money laundering for drug cartels.
Comey was positioned as the face of honesty and competence for HSBC.
How well did he do, before he exited his position? How much crime and how many criminals did he leave behind?
Three years later, after Comey had departed, The NY Times wrote: "HSBC Bank Executives Face Charges in $3.5 Billion Currency [Fraud] Case ... Traders Use Front-Running to Profit From Client Orders..."
I guess Comey didn't clean up the HSBC mess. There were a few things he didn't notice while he was there. A few thing he left behind. A few billion things.
I guess that uniquely qualified him for appointment as FBI director.
So here is my memo. It's directed to Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and assorted Hollywood studios: "Before you sign Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin, Stephen Colbert, Michael Moore, or Caitlyn Jenner to star as James Comey in a heroic biopic, 'Don't Cry for Me, America,' check your brains. It's a loser.

Trump’s lawyer Marc Kasowitz said Comey leaked government information and “privileged communications” to The NYT through his legal advisor, Columbia Law Professor Daniel Richman. “We will leave it the appropriate authorities to determine whether this leak should be investigated” as a possible criminal violation, he said. On Friday, Trump accused Comey of lying under oath during his Senate Intelligence Committee …
Critical questions that demand accurate answers:
Why did Comey even show up for the intel hearing? Because he was forced to by his masters in Deep State.
Then why did Deep State trot Comey out on stage to take such fierce fire from every side?
Let’s be very real for a moment. James Comey had absolutely nothing to gain, and everything to lose by showing up last Thursday. In fact, by exposing himself to the Senate Intelligence Committee he lost so much credibility that he will never recover.
Not only was Comey completely destroyed professionally — by the senators as well as by himself — he will never work in government again. His stunning self-incriminations were so damning that he may never work again in law enforcement. Of course, there is always a place in Deep State waiting for him.
