Comey: ‘I was wrong’ to say FISA process was ‘followed’

Comey is attempting to seek cover. As Chris Wallace points out, Comey is talking as if he was a bystander rather than the Director of the FBI.

For that matter, Wallace is using this interview to cover his own butt, but that doesn’t bother me, because he reveals that Comey is a lying sack of crap.

    How could anyone this ignorant ever get into the position he was in? His ignorance will be his destruction.

    And here we are, the result of decades of a runaway FBI unchecked by those duty bound to oversee the Bureau. Many, many in LEA and intelligence have mistrusted the Bureau for a long, long time and now the nation’s seeing why.

    Most of the Bureau’s misdeeds are done far away from Mr and Mrs America where the normal issues involved with daily living overshadow them, especially when the MSM ignores or give the misdeeds short shrift. We’ve had not-too-distant cases of the Bureau using phony ‘expert’ witnesses or even manufacturing evidence to convict targets. Then there were the cases of the Bureau doing illegal break-ins and let’s forget their trying to get MLK to commit suicide…these are our premier law enforcement people and now they’re nose-deep in an active, unconstitutional coup.

    I have been trying to make the point (since 2106) that the INDICTMENTS needed to start early. I was “placated” by online Gurus that claimed that there was a need to be patient (grasshopper)not rush to indict obvious crooks now, but delay and in effect, round ALL the main players up. But… I was LIED TO I now think. I do not think there were any serious CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS being done behind the scenes.. by Comey himself in 2016.. then Sessions and various people (who mostly turned out to be involved themselves and certainly not investigating other players). The 3 and a half year delay has been used to hide (maybe destroy) evide
    nce if anything. The Muller hoax was imposed to further distract from the REAL crimes. EVEN NOW.. I think Chris Wray is carrying on where Comey left off…
    Barr (and Durham) may finally looking in some of the right places…. I am NOT sure they are investigating the SERIOUS crimes of espionage, treason, sedition etc and I am far from convinced that they will INDICT.. when they see top name (including Obama).

    Comey should have been ARRESTED as well as fired. He admitted to spying on Trump and leaking Classified documents.. lock the bum up!! See who else he names. There should have NOT been a Special Council… unfortunately we now know in hindsight that Trump was getting some BAD advice early on. He was NOT in a position to counter it all. He did NOT have 10,000’s of Washington staff of his own.. and even the “Republicans” were against Trump (mostly)

    It is disappointing to see/hear so many people who work in government are promoting a personal (ideological) position. They have no loyalty to the President, certainly.. and apparently do not even value basics like “rule of law”. It is NOT just a few bad guys at the head of departments and agencies… there is rot from top to bottom. You do have bad guys like Comey, Brennan, Clapper as leaders.. but then you also have senior staff below them.. and agents and lawyers all the way down.

    By the end of 2017 I already thought that the various “investigations” were not even being done, let alone going nowhere. The twittershhere was promising plans, and secret ivestigations and 10s of thousands of “sealed indictments” and Huber out in Utah with prison places at the ready (not to mention planned hangings). It all sounded like nonsense to me back then, and that has been confirmed by the lack of any indictments and in fact “investigations” which turned out to be “reviews” (if anything) with reccommendations for “more reviews” and perhaps some in-house staff training.
    By early 2018 I gave up. It seemed the underlying crimes were very serious, but the crooks involved were “too high up” and too many. Indictments would spark a “civil war”
    But… just when I though I was out… they pull me back in!!
    EXPECTATIONS have again been “whetted” with talk of Barr and his boy Durham doing Criminal Investigations.
    After the past 3 years…. I am reluctant to let myself get sucked in again!! Especially since its the same old “game play”… we have to wait MANY MONTHS before finding out anything from Durham!

    YEAH! RIGHT!!! 🙄

      One becomes very cynical, rumpole, when one realizes the Top Guys are merely being rewarded for their service to The Swamp. Comey, Wray, et al have all risen through the ranks. Bill Barr has spent his entire life sometimes in but always part of The Swamp.

      Will things ever change? Doubt it. Being as you, my hope has diminished as the years rolled by with nothing happening.

      But Pres Trump has made positive changes, in our economy, our national defense, and in us recognizing the corruption in our own gubmint. We shall see how the Swamp Creatures survive, and they will, you know.

    Look at the change in Comey’s demeanor. Look at the slump in his shoulders, Comey sometimes has a very slight hunch never slumped/defeated shoulders like he has for this interview. I know you pick up on this kind of stuff.

    Comey’s arrogant certainty that he is untouchable is gone.

    Even his resting concern face is different. Old Comey concern face was petulant, Comey’s concern face is now tired. Eye are blinking and moving around not dead arrogance simply waiting to give a rote answer.

    Comey response to where Horowitz and Comey’s testimony differ “He was right and I was wrong.”

    What???

    Really Comey is going on the talk circuit and admitting to perjury? Think how bad the internal information that Comey has about what is happening in the FISA investigation must be in order for Comey to flatly and almost unequivocally admit to perjury.

    Federal court, federal law, felony perjury.

    Still pushing the “Aw shucks” persona. I want to smack him with a shovel.

    And that Commie Wallace putting Comey on the ropes?

    Times must be brutal for the Coup Crew.

    Comey said “That doesn’t drive a conclusion” about the fact that much of Steele’s information was debunked before the dossier was ever used as the source to seek a FISA warrant.

    “That doesn’t drive a conclusion” is legally sound classic lawyer speak, note that it is Horowitz’s reasoning for not concluding criminal intent in the IG report. This is matter of legal standards not emotions, or what something looks like to the naked eye, which is why it makes “That doesn’t drive a conclusion” such good lawyering.

    Of course in Comey’s case the words are meaningless because they don’t meet the facts by the measure of reasonable interruption. The fact that The Steele dossier did not reach the legal standard to be used as evidence to obtain a FISA warrant is clear as day. Otherwise they would not have to made a deceptive presentation of it.

    In Comey’s case the ignoring of the evidence that discredited Steele’s information amounts to malicious prosecutorial intent as Comey and his FBI broke the Brady Rule.

    Comey should shut up. He isn’t doing himself any favors.

    He said “If what happened is systemic” (About the failures of procedure and lapses in conduct while obtaining the FISA warrants) “It’s scary.” Comey is shaken, that is clear as day. He’s admitting to a lot of bad things but blaming his underlings and ignorance. Amazing.

    Comey honestly states that Carter Page was treated unfairly, then he goes on to disingenuously say that most significantly it was the release of Carter’s name that was “unfair”. Hmmm..I would think that Carter Page believes that the malicious prosecution was the problem.

    LOL Comey “I didn’t know” is his default button. That ain’t gonna fly in a court of law you POS.

    And in the end Comey finally reverts back to the old Comey, in the words he chooses anyhow, but still his demeanor is not one of confidence even when he is speaking from memory and using his fighting words.

    I’m reminded of Sally Fields “YOU like me, you really like me.”

    “I’m not going to jail Momma! I’m not going to jail.” ___James Comey

    Don’t count your chickens James, don’t count your chickens.

    The Crimes we know of already represent a widespread CONSPIRACY to plot and actually carry out, VERY serious crimes. Capital crimes perhaps, certainly life sentence type crimes. It involves Obama, Hillary and many people in the Obama administration… The WH, DoJ, FBI, CIA, State Dept..etc.. many more agencies. The Diplomatic Corps, the Military, etc… overseas spies, agencies, Governments…
    IF Durham were doing a PROPER CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION he would need a HUGE staff and a LOT of office space. People who might get wind of that have not seen it happening.
