As we all know by now, Former FBI Director James Comey’s bombshell testimony before the Senate was a massive failure for the left in their attempt to prove their Russian conspiracy theory.
President Trump remained silent throughout the testimony, but broke his silence yesterday.
Trump said that Comey lied about their conversation, (the one in which he says Trump implied he wanted him to drop the investigation into just-fired National Security Advisor Mike Flynn).
When asked whether he would testify under oath about this, he responded with “100 percent…I would be glad to tell him exactly what I just told you.”
Just to be clear: the implications of this could be catastrophic. Two testimonies from a fired FBI Director and the President of the United States, with two different answers?
This whole ordeal could turn into full-on war between Trump and Comey.
Comey’s hearing on Capitol Hill was abysmal for the Democrats. Even Chris Matthews admitted the Russian conspiracy theory came apart after the hearing.
Liberals thought they really found the goods on this president, that this was it, only to be disappointed by this lie that the mainstream media has perpetuated.
Here’s just a recap for those who have been living under a rock since Thursday:
No, Trump Didn’t Obstruct Justice:
President Trump allegedly told Flynn to back off the Flynn investigation.
Dictator! Abuse of power! This is when Democrats went off their rails in hopes of further proving his ties to the Kremlin and revealing a scandal not seen since Watergate.
Here is what Comey alleges Trump told him: “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
Even Comey admits this was not obstruction of justice:
“I had understood the president to be requesting that we drop any investigation of Flynn in connection with false statements about his conversations with the Russian ambassador in December. I did not understand the president to be talking about the broader investigation into Russia or possible links to his campaign.”
Trump Was Not Under Investigation:
Even in his prepared statements released Wednesday, Comey made it explicitly known that he told Trump three times that he was not personally under investigation.
He made it crystal clear: “We did not have an open counter-intelligence case on him.”
Sen. Marco Rubio asked the best question during this hearing:
“Do you ever wonder why, of all the things in this investigation, the only thing that’s never been leaked is the fact that the president was not personally under investigation, despite the fact that both Democrats and Republicans and the leadership of Congress knew that and have known that for weeks?”
While I’m not a fan of little Marco, that was a damn good question.
Comey Leaked his own Memo
James Comey revealed he used a law professor friend at Columbia University to share information with The New York Times.
That’s right, Comey literally admitted he was a leaker. Kinda defeats the purpose of the whole thing, just saying.
Apparently, he wanted to get specific information out after Trump took to Twitter to say this:
James Comey better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 12, 2017
However, that story doesn’t add up. Comey was leaking before Trump’s May 12 tweet about tapes.
The former director said he felt compelled to take notes of his interactions with Mr. Trump because he was afraid the president would “lie” about them.
As sitting FBI Director, Comey didn’t trust President Trump from day one.
Loretta Lynch Pressured Him on Hillary Clinton
Loretta Lynch, the former attorney general under Barack Obama, pressured former FBI Director James Comey to downplay the Clinton email server investigation as simply just a “matter.”
When Comey asked why, Lynch allegedly wouldn’t give him an explanation. “Just call it a matter,” she said.
Yeah, because that doesn’t seem suspicious at all.
“I don’t know whether it was intentional or not but it gave the impression that the attorney general [Lynch] was looking to align the way we talked about our work with the way the political campaign was describing the same activity, which was inaccurate.”
When asked by Texas Sen. John Cornyn if it would be accurate to say Lynch had a “conflict of interest” in the Clinton email investigation, Comey gave a straight forward answer.
“That’s fair,” he said.
So, Should the President Testify Against Comey?
While the thought is entertaining, and it surely would be great political theatre, President Trump’s best option is to lay low and let this conspiracy theory die.
June 8th should’ve been the deciding blow to the insane left-wing hoax of Russian collusion. Note, I said should’ve.
Who knows if the delusional Democrats still haven’t given up hope yet. It’s like nothing can convince them at this point.
Comey’s hearing can best be described with this piece of poetry:
