Comey Admits He Leaked Trump Memo to Media Through Intermediary

Written by  Tiffany Gabbay

While the mainstream media are focused on spinning a negative outcome for President Trump following former FBI director James Comey's Congressional testimony Thursday, they are missing two very important bombshells.

First, Comey admitted that he leaked the content of a memo detailing a private conversation with Trump, to the media through a friend and intermediary, Columbia law professor Daniel Richman. Comey hoped the media coverage of the memo would catalyze the appointment of a special counsel. The AJC summarizes Comey's damning remarks:

Dismissed FBI director James Comey admitted during congressional testimony Thursday that he orchestrated the leak last month of a memo that detailed private conversations he had with President Donald Trump.

The memo was cited May 16 in a New York Times article that revealed Comey felt Trump pressured him to drop his investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Flynn was forced to resign in February, 24 days into his appointment, after it was revealed that he lied to Vice President Mike Pence about conversations he had with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak.

Comey said he decided to share his memo through another party after Trump wrote days after Comey’s abrupt dismissal that “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press.

Actually, what he did was use the U.S. government as a political weapon. He used a far left alinksy 'college' as his vehicle. Something an FBI director should certainly be aware of. IT wasn't cuz he was 'scared' or 'confused' or anything else. It was a willful act of treason using nefarious channels and nefarious elements. What it was, was an attack on the AMERICAN VOTER.. The government of an by and for... And the guy they ELECTED en masse, doing as close to what he said he would do as the people decided to ELECT HIM.. This makes it an attack on the people, using saul alinsky radicals, lying and subverting to do it.
Using his own testimony it is time to level the cannon and fire with extreme prejudice.. The guy belongs in Prison for the rest of his life. And yes-- "INTENT" is obvious..

What is going on is Comey trying to save his own ass.Still doing the bidding of Obama.He didn't do anything to Hillary or Obama.Now he is trying to get Trump impeached. Comey was either black mailed or just trying to help those in the dem.party.Either way he should have resigned or been fired.What ever Trump may have done personally nothing.He does not deserve what is happening.Truth is theese hateful attacks against Trump are also attacks against us.Those that support him.For one second do not think otherwise.The liberals in this country hate us with a passion.God be with us.

So what? It's not like anyone is going to do anything about any of this. He worked for the elephant eared idiot and was bound to sabotage President Trump at every turn. THat's what those snakes do.

Comey stated "he leaked in response to Trumps tweet" yet it has been proven the NYT had the leak prior to the tweet! He lied to the senate judiciary committee when he denied leaking of any kind! Oh what a tangled web he's weaving!!!!

In a matter of a few hours Comey committed perjury. Impicated himself in one felony and implicated Loretta Lynch in another.

Trump should have fired James...I'm with her...Comey the day he took over. This snake in the grass proved his incompetence and total lack of ethics when he gave Hillary multiple get out of jail free cards. The illegal server was hacked, probably for 4 years giving top secret intel to our enemies and black hat hackers. She gave Russia 20% of our uranium for $$$ into the Clinton..money pit..foundation, That's treason and 50 shades of illegal.

If I was some of these people I would not comment to show their ignorance.
When Comey dropped the investigation against Clinton, he did it because there was not enough evidence to bring the case to court with what has to be proven, if Clintons server was hacked then how come none of the other intelligence services in Europe were in agreement that there was no proof it had been hacked, and every country monitors every other country. How did Clinton give anything away that was not the US property, the uranium belonged to an Australian firm and Canada, the only thing the 8 US Government signed off on was the Transfer of the Uranium which has to be done no matter where the Uranium is located and Clinton did not even sign off on it, it was a underling in the State Department after 7 other top agencies had already signed off.
I do think some should learn what Treason is, and if anything illegal was done then the House of Representatives could have charged Clinton.

ICYMI on July 5th (or 6th) 2016 Comey presented proof of criminal offenses by hrc in terms of gross mishandling of national security data. He effectively rewrote the law by including 'intent' as a requirement which is NOT in the law itself. Democrats were furious as his delineated statements incriminated her. I recommend you read his statement.
As for Uranium One, bill clinton worked on this deal for a long time, before she was SOS, and closed the deal with her in the SOS position. She was key in its approval as follows:
“Still, the ultimate authority to approve or reject the Russian acquisition rested with the cabinet officials on the foreign investment committee, including Mrs. Clinton — whose husband was collecting millions in donations from people associated with Uranium One.”
Clintons amassed over $145 mill in donations to the CF from uranium investors and Frank Giustra. The clintons formed a foundation in Canada titled the 'Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership" which allowed them to hide the names of donors via Canadian law, bundle the donations and funnel them into the US, bypassing US disclosure requirements.
Slick, huh.
As for hacking, realistically she probably was. But she was so covered by their govt plants/cronies, she knew no one could touch her and they didn't.
clintons are good at their syndicate strategies..but don't double cross them; they have Arkansas red neck hit brigade
