Chaffetz Demands FBI Hand Over All Comey's Notes, Memos, & Recordings Related To Trump

Tyler Durden's picture

Update: Jason Chaffetz office just released the letter sent to the FBI's Andrew McCabe demanding all Comey-Trump related memos...

Today, the New York Times reported former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey memorialized the content of phone calls and meetings with the President in a series of internal memoranda. At least one such memorandum reportedly describes a conversation in which the President referenced the FBI investigation of former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and said to Comey, "I hope you can let this go."


According to the report, "Mr. Comey created similar memos — including some that are classified — about every phone call and meeting he had with the president." If true, these memoranda raise questions as to whether the President attempted to influence or impede the FBI's investigation as it relates to Lt. Gen. Flynn. So the Committee can consider that question, and others, provide, no later than May 24, 2017, all memoranda, notes, summaries, and recordings referring or relating to any communications between Comey and the President.


The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is the principal oversight committee of the House of Representatives and may at "any time" investigate "any matter" as set forth in House Rule X. An attachment to this letter provides additional information about responding to the Committee's request. Thank you for your attention to this matter.


Trump and/or Comey are getting increasingly boxed in here - one or other is going to be proved a liar soon enough.

As we detailed earlier, following the New York Times latest Trump bombshell (see "Comey's Revenge: Leaks Memo To NYT Saying Trump Asked Him To End Flynn Investigation"), the impeachment word seems to be getting tossed around a little more loosely this evening.  And, given the serious accusations levied by former FBI Director James Comey, the Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Jason Chaffetz, has  just promised that he will "get the Comey memo, if it exists," which was backed up by the not so thinly veiled threat: "I have my subpoena pen ready."


Meanwhile, in the following Q&A with NBC, Chaffetz says his committee has already started "drafting the necessary paperwork" to get Comey's memo to the extent it is not handed over voluntarily.

"If the memo exists, I need to see it and I need to see it right away.  We are drafting the necessary paperwork to get the mom so we will find out in a hurry if its out there."


"I want to read the memo first but on the surface that seems like an extraordinary use of influence to try to shutdown an investigation being done by the FBI.  I don't know if it's true yet but I want to find out if that's actually out there."

Does the market even care about Trump, or is it the tax cuts that happen with our without him? Pence's steadier hand might be worth a few Dow points.

Comey's a Criminal accessory.

Much satisfaction knowing that Comey probably won't sleep tonight or ever again for that matter.

Not long now before the Clinton "Wet Work" Minions get to him.

Honerable mention "Wet Work" Susan Rice. As Comey can no longer protect her much less himself.


Where's Anthony's Lap Tap?
What was in it James?


Why aren't you investigating the Awan brothers?

Where are the Awan brothers Andrew?

Andrew, Why aren't you investigating Criminal at large Debbie Wasserman Shultz & the IT Awan brothers working for her?


Because your a Criminal Accessory too.

Absolute, complete, open in your Face Criminal

Tyrannical Lawlessness.

Chaffetz is a qutter, who cares what he says. Just go home baby.

Really should have criminal charges, a search warrant, and vans and goons all over Comey's shit RIGHT NOW.  McCabe too.

Normalcy bias.....could bring an end to the world as we knew it.

Just can't think outside the box.

He's a total showman who NEVER delivers!

Ha!  We'll see eh?  I should think a memo wouldn't be enough to worry a president especially one that is written weeks after the investigation ended.

Trump has spent far too long being nice.

That or he doesn't have the power he'd like.  Perhaps he needs to hire some hit men!

Let's rumble ...

Perhaps that's why they wanted to get him off the payroll at this time.

This is one of the very strange things about the FBI. They never record "interviews" in any way, ever. Everything is "recorded" in memos after the alleged "interview". This really means you should never say one word to them, since they will always "record" from "memory". So far, the idiot judges have accepted this as "evidence".

jerry_theking_lawler's picture

In a regular 'court' it is one persons word against another. Without any other evidence, this is usually standard court. But to oust a leader, this may be all it takes. The United States is lost if this proceeds....

Well if a bald face lie under oath to a grand jury (which is a crime) wasn't enough to bounce Billy, then I'm going to have to suggest that some slimey unfounded innuendo about Trumps "Russian ConnectionsTM " isn't going to get lift-off no matter how many pussyhatters wring their hankies.

Von Berger's picture

How strange !
I thought the FBI were streets ahead of our system.
The CID record all interviews
Hence the exclusion of cock-ups later on if there's an investigation.

Problem is is that those goons will be comey's former co workers and most likely obama pals as well...


Yea, they'll show up alright, with industrial strength paper and hard drive shredders in tow...

It should include all the notes.....Comey hasn't written yet.

On that note, where has Devin Nunes been the past few weeks?

Comey is writing up that memo right now; New York Times patiently waiting.

Chaffitz has left the reservation, someone has dirt on him, he is getting out early and claiming "family issues".

There is no memo and Chaffetz knows it...he's caling out the bullshit.

I wonder why these scumbag parasites haven't learned how to spot a trap. Could it be that they have been so sheltered for so long that they believe their own bullshit?

thebigunit's picture

That would be interesting.  Wonder how the Carlos Slim 'New York' Times would spin THAT?

There is no memo and Chaffetz knows it...he's caling out the bullshit.

jimmy12345's picture

he wrote the memo on thr day of the meeting.  I'm sure the FBI computer system has a time/date function of the file.

Obama is writing the memos...with Valerie Jarrett

Shit - I wrote a "memo" last night, that said I met with Cankles, and she confessed to jiggering the engine of the plane Ron Brown crashed in.

Comey's about as truthful as Pinocchio on crack.

Him and the cabal of globalist swine network cunts.

Chaffetz is compromised, so nothing will come of any action by this sub-committee... That is unless it further smears Trump in the public eye... 96% of CNN coverage is about Trump and 100% of that coverage is negative... The full-court press is on to oust Trump before he unleashes the Kraken on them... The deep state is winning at this point, unfortunately... 

Mr. Universe's picture

Are they going to use the Hillary "Medusa" head to try and take out the Kraken? Who is playing Bo-bo's part, seems he crashed into the ocean and has yet to return...

That is because they want Paul Ryan as POTUS. Once Pence resigns or is removed also, Ryan can step in and nominate a new VP. That will be the one to watch. Completely unelected.

Selective scrutiny at all times

OK, so the story is that Trump asked Comey to drop an investigating, therefore essentially obstructing justice (although Flynn has done nothing wrong). So, why didn't Comey inform the DOJ about this? Are we to assume that Comey doesn't know that he was being asked to commit a felony and that is a reportable offense? Not sure Comey is going to like the outcome of this investigation regardless of whether he is telling the truth or not.

nmewn's picture

That is the essence of it.

He was duty bound to cut off the conversation (if it occurred) and report it. Its a NYT's nuffinburger again, I don't believe there is a memo. Did the "Gray Lady" provide a facsimile, picture or otherwise produce the document in question?

Yeah, I thought not.


And another thought...are we to assume here that when Trump fired him...(while Comey was out in Kalifornia)...Comey was hauling around this memo (or other memos) in his briefcase? That "it" or all memos stayed in his possession all the time? That he didn't turn over ALL government property as required after he was fired? Was he allowed to download & print "his memos"? 

The Times story has more holes in it than a Bubba Clinton wet dream.
