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...

He was fired while out of town and on the other coast. He could not physically access anything in his office at the bureau. There was crime scene tape across his office door.

Hmmmm.

Well that's the point. The FBI seems to have a do not touch list and damn near anything can be Declared 'Classified' Information.

Political Statements on the eve of an Election trying to throw public sentiment. I just do not understand HOW a lot of these people are still walking around?

How the hell is this being allowed to happen if the United States Government has not been fully comprimised by a soft coup for cash and Agendas, long ago ?

All this Bullshit is just Par for the Course now.

Bill of Rights's picture

Ill just leave this right here...

Executive order 13,526 WRITTEN BY OBAMA states that the president can share classified info with whomever he wants to. Because he is the head of the executive branch it is the right of the president to classify or declassify info as he sees fit, no law against it.
 https://www.archives.gov/isoo/policy-documents/cnsi-eo.html#one

 

    (2) Classified information originating in one agency may be disseminated by any other agency to which it has been made available to a foreign government in accordance with statute, this order, directives implementing this order, direction of the President, or with the consent of the originating agency. For the purposes of this section, ‘‘foreign government’’ includes any element of a foreign government, or an international organization of governments, or any element thereof.

So you're saying that thanks to Obama, the paragon of virtue (cough), "When the President does it, it isn't illegal" and that's your precedent?

Wow. This moral justification is the thinnest I've ever seen. 

Bill of Rights's picture

What's wrong asshole truth hurt

NugginFuts's picture

You wouldn't tolerate that behavior from Obama, but you'd gladly allow it under Trump? How many other self-serving treasonous executive orders would you gladly accept under Trump just because he isn't Obama?

You sold your soul in exchange for a billionaire puppet president and you're glad about the exchange. That's the truth and you're happy to ignore it. 

Sad.

 

WAKE UP!

techpriest's picture

I think it's more a case of Obama trying to cover his own ass when all of the info comes out, but by doing so he accidentally saved Trump too.

Either way its ludicrous.

hoos bin pharteen's picture

Actually, the American people DID tolerate it with Obama.  But since the Left suddenly seems concerned with rule of law, let's focus on that.

No, that EO was likely to facilitate the previous admin's political espionage.
POTUS could for a long time retroactively declassify and this is more relevant.

Through the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act, the Deep State turned the Presidency into a dictatorship giving the President the authority to off anyone he determined to be a terrorist, i.e. a threat to the regime. If you have the power to summarily execute an American citizen, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution are simply dust.  What the puppet masters never imagined was that they might actually lose control of the monster they created.  That is why the power mongers must either get Trump under control or put him out of office.  To do that they are obviously running several plays one of which is to impeach him.  They may be able to contain Trump. What they cannot contain is the pissed off populace that voted for Trump. Within that pissed off populace lies a minor element consisting of roughly three percent.

The three percent is a segment of the population that will physically take up arms against what they perceive as tyranny. They will do this taking on great personal risk knowing full well that the tree of liberty may very well have be watered by their own blood.  They may or may not be part of any organization.  Based on their prior act of defiance, their weapon of choice can range from leaking the private emails of their chosen political party right to showing up in front of a federal building with a truck load of sensitized fertilizer.

What is magical about the three percent is that they themselves do not know who they are.  They have to be triggered by some egregious act.  There has to be some moral outrage that flips their personal switch.  They cannot be found out.  They cannot be infiltrated.  They cannot be neutralized because they are unknown even to themselves. 

The Deep State may have wet dreams about going all Stalinesque on us and purging the populace of all the deplorables but it is too late. Obama alerted the 3%.  Based on the retail sales of arms and ammunition, the body politic bought enough guns and ammunition to outfit an army of 54,000 men every two days during the tenure of the past President.  The three percent are armed to the teeth.

According to Adams who was present at the time, roughly a third of the population supported the King, a third was ambivalent and a third supported the Revolution.

Based on the population figures at the time, roughly three percent of the population actually took up arms and fought in the Revolution.

Show me the passage in the Constitution that gives the President the power to make law by executive order.

Ain't none!

horseman's picture

I see where Part 1, sec 1.3(1) gives the president authority to classify info.

Part 3 deals with declassifing info and I don't see where it authorizes the president to declassify. 

The other part you write about "(2) Classified information originating..........."  I don't see in the order.  Maybe I am missing it.  What is its full part and section designation?

Probably a roll of used T.P. forthcoming.  And that's just for the Clinton emails.

JackBeTrader's picture

Watergate was a spying scandal. Nixon used the FBI to spy on and investigate his political opponents, and it culminated at Watergate.  The investigations into the Trump administration are staggaring. They started nearly a year ago. Spying on Flynn. Investigating Trump/Russia. Now the meeting with Russia. Now the meetings with Comey.  It's relentless.

100% support this call to release ALL of Comey's memos, not just the ones relating to Trump. If you want the facts, then reveal all the facts. All of this is specifically targeting Trump with no more than anonymous accusations as the probable cause.

azusgm's picture

Since Comey could not physically access anything in his office when he was fired, and having classified data outside of a secure location/device, he may have a problem with his "notes to self" if there is reference to classified info.

Mroex's picture

Fine with me, I am very happy about this. The deep state, anti-Trump assholes may have just fucked themselves BIG TIME, the Senate is asking for ALL MEMOS including Comey's contact with Lynch, Obama, Yates having anything to do with the bullshit Russian / Trump connection AND THE CLINTON E-MAIL INVESTIGATION. I love it!!! Lynch and Clinton are shitting teir depends right now. Oh yea if the FBI holds back some incriminating shit on the Dems, you can bet it will be leaked out by FBI agents / employees who are sick of this bullshit!!!!!!!!

I think Trump is clean, Putin would never want a loose cannon who talks first thinks later as a puppet. Not when he could blackmail the shit out of clinton by threatining to release proof she was bribed in the Uranium One Deal.

It's all Bullshit Assange put's up $20,000 USD for information regarding Seth Rich's murder. That said it all to me the day Assange put up that reward. That Assange provided reward money is Assange telling us Seth was the source of the e-mails NOT Putin NOT tThe Kremlin

Bastiat's picture

Mr. Comey, to put it mildly there has been a great deal of interest in the alleged hacking of the DNC email system.  If there were evidence that the DNC emails were released, not through a hack but by an inside DNC leaker, who later was murdered, with no apparent motive, is that a situation that the FBI would take an interest in? How about if there were credible allegations the the DC police investigation of this murder was stifled? 

azusgm's picture

Mr. Comey, why did not the FBI seize the servers at the DNC? Did the servers harbor anything radioactive?

Hmmm....

Isn't there someone missing?

Or maybe some three missing?

I'm thinking Bill, HIllary and Barry...

Right. he has to ask for all the records for all the pseudonyms of the individual known as Barry, Barack, Soetoro and Obama, who held the office of POTUS 2008-16 or he won't get any.

Want to juggle some more intrigue?

If you're like me, you probably don't.........BUT it might be important to watch what ALL of the evil clown hands are doing. .. They are pretty slick when they're up to no good.

Comey needs watching carefully and so does his side kick criminal clown Andrew McCabe.

These assholes will be busy destroying evidence while they are pointing at Trump and screaming, "Squirrel!! ........... Memo! ......... Tapes!"

TMI, now you mention it, i vaguely recall that.  that would have been b4 the weasle got fired, iirc.

stick with me...i'm goin around harvey's barn.  yesterday, GW mentioned the Hague, Belgium, Utah, vatiCON & a guy feralBI named barnhart.  he may not noit, but he's treading in some even more dangerous territory...top of the pyramid.   Hague/compartmentalized goodly.  utah, ties to pedo sterling allan who copped a plea to molesting his own daughters when he was luring kids interested in alt-energy (peswiki) scamming from (Keshe-CTM#486) who gives the schmematics away for free.  he got caught up with the (pedo/authorities) in belgium who tried to steal his patents & fled to ussa notifying feralBI.  this SA & his computer (finder?) linked to justusScalia & the big(O) meeting & subsequent snuff job. so you know feralB was involved before it was moved to the state courts.

ok, so the personhood/unamSanctam thingy...well i was unaware, but mussolini ponied up $92B in gold to the vatiCON which turned them into a central bank & subsequently became big playa's...roberto calvi, bene's stepping down, laundering for ALL the suspects in the rat line biz.   he clearly states when he's speculating, but his research is document based.  this'll blow your skirt up.

Great move. This could be a real Comey killer. Had they done this to J. Edgar Hoover, who knows how much better history might have worked out. Unfortunately, since Comey had no reservations about destroying incriminating evidence against Hillary, why should we expect that he wouldn't destroy incriminating evidence against himself?
