Comey’s Flint Memo
Quote about James Comey the former FBI director:
You’ve got to kill him, metaphorically. You can’t just wound him.
James Comey, the former FBI director who Donald trump fired, had a habit of writing memos after every important meeting, and phone call with Donald Trump. These memos were kept privately as he did not want them to influence ongoing investigations.
The purpose was to document what Comey perceived as the president’s improper efforts to influence the ongoing investigation into Trump’s own presidential campaign and the investigation into Trump’s former national security adviser.
Comey made notes at the time on every meeting and phone call with Donald Trump. James Comey was aware that he could not trust Trump. Comey has remarked that Donald Trump was “Outside the realm of normal” and “crazy.”
If there would be a Trump-said-but-Comey-said confrontation, then Comey would have backup proof of what was said at the time and to show he was not making it up on-the-fly.
Now that Comey has been fired, these are no longer kept privately by the FBI director on his computer. The computer was sitting there at the FBI waiting for some agents to look into it. And that is exactly what they did.
The president is causing non-stop chaos. It started early on in the presidency, as Comey’s memos show. Now that more and more is coming out in the open, this chaos is escalating.
Trump has already admitted on National TV that he fired Comey to stop the Russia investigation. But by firing him Trump freed up Comey’s private notes for all to see.
Politico reported one insider said this about Trump: “He doesn’t really know any boundaries. He doesn’t think in those terms. He doesn’t sometimes realize the implications of what he is saying.”
Can it get worse? You bet. And the Comey memos add to that.
The Flint Memo
White house staff described the mood after news of the Flynn memo came out as “tense” and “a morgue.”
The national security adviser McMaster said, “This is the last place in the world i want to be.”
On January 26th Trump found out that the FBI were investigating Michael Flynn. Immediately Trump invited the FBI director,James Comey, to dinner at the White House.
The next day, on January 27th Comey had that key dinner with Trump at the White House. During the dinner Trump asked Comey to pledge his loyalty to Trump and stop the Russia investigations.. Twice Comey said he could not, but he would be honest with the president. The third time Trump asked Comey if he would give Trump his “honest loyalty,” whatever that meant, to which Comey agreed.
On February 13th Mike Flynn confirmed that he had met with the Russians, did talk about sanctions and had lied about it. The next day on February 14th Comey attended a National Security Meeting in the Oval Office.
The Flint memo was written after that meeting with Donald Trump on February 14th in the Oval Office. After the National Security Meeting Trump asked Comey to stay behind. The FBI director’s boss, attorney general Jeff Sessions and the vice president Mike Pence were asked to leave as well. Then, one-on-one, President Trump asked James Comey, the FBI director, to shut down the federal investigation into former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.
Trump asked Comey, “I hope you can see clear to letting Flynn go.”
This is obstruction of Justice. The President leaning on the FBI director to stop an active investigation into Trumps national security adviser. Obviously Mike Flynn has some information on Trump’s connections to Russia.
Obstruction of Justice, money laundering … The trials and tribulations of Donald Trump will soon be starting and it will be a long and sensational jouney.
Mike Pence will soon be the USA president.
