Senate Demands White House Tapes, Comey Memos On Just About Everyone

Tyler Durden's picture

Following Jason Chaffetz' lead from last night, the Senate Judiciary Committee has demanded that The FBI hand over all Comey's memos "memorializing interactions" with Trump, Obama, Sessions, Lynch, Rosenstein, Boente, and Yates...

Charles Grassley, Dianne Feinstein, Lindsey Graham, and Shedon Whitehouse wrote to Acting FBI Director McCabe...

Dear Mr. McCabe


Yesterday, the New York Times reported that former Director Comey created memos regarding his interactions with President Trump, "a paper trail Mr. Comey created documenting what he perceived as the president's improper efforts to influence an ongoing investigation."' 'The article stated that "Mr. Comey created similar memos - including some that are classified about every phone call and meeting he had with the president." More generally, the article stated "Mr. Comey was known among his closet advisers to document conversations that he believed would later he called into question." Presumably, this means that Mr. Comey created similar memoranda relating to other controversial conversations, whether with officials in the current administration or the prior one.


We are writing to request that the FBI provide the Committee with all such memos, if they exist, that Mr. Comey created memorializing interactions he had with Presidents Trump and Obama, Attorneys General Sessions and Lynch, and Deputy Attorneys General Rosenstein, Boente, and Yates regarding the investigations of Trump associates' alleged connections with Russia or the Clinton email investigation. Please provide these documents by no later than May 24, 2017.


We anticipate that some of these documents may be classified, some may not, and others may contain both classified and unclassified information. Please deliver any documents containing classified information to the Office of Senate Security and provide all unclassified documents directly to the Committee. If you have any specific requests with regard to the Committee's handling of to the Committee. If you have any specific requests with regard to the Committee's handling of unclassified material, please raise those with us in advance.

Interesting that they also demand all the "Hillary" related memos too... If Comey "memorialized" all his interactions - like he said he did for the Trump memo - then he must have the ones discussed with Obama, Lynch, Yates etc... regarding the Clinton case?

We also note that unlike Chaffetz...

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 Judiciary Committee did not demand "recordings" from The FBI. However, in a separate letter to The White House Counsel Donald McGabe, they demanded "tapes"...

In order for the Committee to fully assess these allegations, we are also asking that the White House please provide the Committee all White House records memorializing interactions with White House please provide the Committee all White House records memorializing interactions with Mr. Comey relating to the FBI's investigation of alleged ties between President Trump's associates and Russia, or the Clinton email investigation, including all recordings, transcripts, notes, summaries, and memoranda.


To the extent the prior administration's records of interactions with Mr. Comey about these topics may now be housed at the National Archives or elsewhere, we ask that you make the relevant personnel there aware of the request and authorize them to release the records to the Committee.

Both Comey and Trump are getting boxed in here as the "liar" card is getting ready to be played. And then the "he said, he said" games begin...

Actually, that's not necessarily a bad thing...   In fact, I'd much rather see the same hoopla over 'legislation' (of all sorts) being ROLLED BACK...

Amen to that. 

And hey all the jolly gents on here who have been screaming how they want the market to fall apart might finally get their wish. Whodathunk it would come at the expense of their favorite politician. 

I suppose there's no better time for this to all come apart. If it's going to come apart, might as well start at the top.

Everybody ought to look up how the FBI uses its form 302s, especially if they want somebody whom they don't have dirt on to turn informant.  You'll understand why I don't trust Comey's memos.

Let's just put it all on live TV going forward -- a reality show . . . but let's be sure to include all the congress critter meetings with K-Street vermin.

I want to hear the Lowrenta - Bill Clnton tapes from their meeting on the airstrip.

Also, begin indictments against crooked Hillary or it's a no go.

Send them the pizzagate files.

If Trump doesn't get serious about cleaning house, he is going to be history.  

How about all those "Truth Bombs" that were going to be let loose?

Maybe start with 9/11, then the US-led coup in Ukraine? 

Trump has been in over his head ever since he walked into the White House.  WTF did he thing was going to happen?

Take the f*cking gloves off, for Christ's sake.

You are on to something.

I propose a gigantic replica blender just like the Blendtec S875C2901-B1GB1D, but 2 stories high.

Then have the home audience vote on the Congress Critter's and K St Folks that go into the blender in a sort of weekly elimination aka "The Batchelor" etc.

Of course, in the last segment of the show, the blender is turned on with the appropriate resulting gore as the "eliminated" are in fact eliminated!

I have two questions:

  • Why did FBI Director Comey sit on his "memories" for 3 months if he thought that President Trump was committed such a serious crime?
  • What was he waiting for?

It appears that FBI Director Comey intended to blackmail the President at an appropriate moment.

Comey just ordered a case of BLEACHBIT on Ebay...rumor has it.....

Comey figures if Clinton can destroy evidence even after she gets the subpoena, he can destroy his self-incriminating evidence before he gets the subpeona.

Congress or sessions should immediately get a judge to rule for the weasel not to tamper with or destroy ANY evidnce related to ANY matter while he was with the FBI as director.

I believe it was Cicero, although Aesop may have very well have originated it, except that he was a collection of fables.

NugginFuts's picture

Cicero was quoting Aesop's fable "The Frogs Who Desired a King"

Arnold's picture

Aesop was nearly 400 years before Cicero.

More to the point, does he keep them on everyone he speaks to, or just those on the other team?

It's all a distrqaction to desperately prevent them from investigating the real traitors and crooks Hillary, Huma, Mills, Jarrett, etc. Why is no one "demanding" that info and an explanation why Komey granted them immunity. Congress and all Americans should be outraged (to use a word beaten into the ground recently by Democrats).

RiverRoad's picture

And how creative does he get with his memos?

Oldwood's picture

Trump has NO credibility because.....well, they said so. He told us we could keep our, that was somebody else.

He told us that Obamacare wouldn't cover, that was somebody else too.

He told is radical Islam was whipped and ISIL was the "JV", that was again someone else.

Well, I know he told us our healthcare costs would go DOWN by two thousand dollars and Benghazi was the result of a video and that Islam was a religion of peace and police action stupidly and the seas would rise and engulf us all, and, and, well SHIT, I know he had to have done something that destroyed his credibility......I got it! Crowd size! That lying motherfucker! He has no credibility at all!!!!

TheRideNeverEnds's picture

Hey, I'm sure all the ones relating to Obama Hillary etc has conveniently been "lost" or "destroyed" but given some time they should be able to gin up some good ones about Trump and his team.

Hard drives crashed, backups burned, bits bleached, ... any juicy information found couldn't be released as it would certainly contain information related to national security. Anything related to the overthrow of the US president by the deep state, democrats, RINOS, MSM, NWO, ... would be released to protect the children (of the devil).

Yeah, I love how she plays the "just a ditzy broad" gambit in one breath, and "elect me President" in the next.

Oldwood's picture

This is WAR and it would be foolish to assume they will fight fair. Rules are for the losers. Republicans operate under a heavy handicap in that they continue to believe they are supposed to fight fair, with morals and a lack of hypocrisy. They always fail because in the apparent loss they ultimately revert to Democrat tactics....too late and just end up looking stupid AND corrupt.

Yog Soggoth's picture

They could just have that missing information directly emailed from Weiners laptop in custody of NYPD. Heck, why not send everyone a copy whether they asked for it or not. Nothing to hide there right?

Now if these guys would put in this much effort to prosecuting Hillary and Podesta for pedophilia that would be something.

I am wondering if they are.  The grandstanding is unbelievable.  I seem to have lost some productivity with the continual bombardment of crazy.

I think Grassley would love to use Comey to be the spindle in the great unwind of large tranches of the epic corruption Comey tried to shield. Calling for the few possible memos re interactions with Sessions who has been AG for a very short time is a good thing. It shows equal treatment while calling for the memos re communications with Loretta Lynch.

Comey better ask his publisher for more time since he is going to have to dedicate some attention to manning his shredder.

Countrybunkererd's picture

Grassley's signature is the first thing I noticed.

techpriest's picture

Grassley is an establishment Republican, but he has a lot of Liberty folks in his home state, and he can likely keep himself and his new sidekick Joni Earnst in the Senate by using this opportunity to hit some common enemies.

IIRC, he is up for re-election soon, so if he actually took down Lynch or one of the other big names, every corner of the RPI (Repub. Party of Iowa) would get behind him. I'm guessing the union Dems pissed at all of the illegal immigration in IA would like him too.

Comey will not provide any Notes or Memos on me, because...

"No reasonable prosecutor would bother with the HRC email case".

Lynch and Obama have assured him this is so.
