Comey Admits Under Oath That Obstructions To Investigations "Never Happened"

Tyler Durden's picture

As we detailed earlier, next week's James Comey hearing is certainly setting up as a 'grab yr popcorn' moment with Democrats lining up for their 5 minutes of fame to ask the question that 'proves' Trump deserves impeachment. However, it appears there is no need for the hearing as Mr. Comey already confirmed - under oath - that "he has not been pressured to close an investigation for political purposes."

Testifying under oath in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on May 3rd, Comey states that he has not been pressured to close an investigation for political purposes, "not in my experience."

COMEY: Not in my experience. Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something like that -- without an appropriate purpose.

 

I mean where oftentimes they give us opinions that we don't see a case there and so you ought to stop investing resources in it. But I'm talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal.

 

It's not happened in my experience.

Caught on tape?

Some have pointed out that Comey is responding specifically to a question whether someone at the Department of Justice or the Attorney General had ever asked him to halt an investigation.

That is true, however, his response is not specific. His response is general...

" it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something like that -- without an appropriate purpose... I'm talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal... It's not happened in my experience."

It seems like ANY "pressure" to stop an investigation is a "big deal" and that's "not happened."

What Comey has done is so seriously wrong that I do think some top criminal lawyers in the DOJ have to review it all and I hope they have the goods and the guts to prosecute Comey.  

He and his cohorts were trying very hard to bring down this nation and that is criminal behavior. He and the others have to be held accountable or we will continue on with this multi level "system" of justice which will eat us alive.

Thank you for giving me the oportunity to observe your interactions w ith other fight club members. I've watched your comments for quite a while now and have built a psychological profile on you. How close am I? 

Abandoned by father before age 8,  abused by mother, small build, medium intelligence, poor eye sight, never joined sports in school,  it would appear you were picked on a lot, extreme introvert with trouble relating to the opposite sex, found message boards and comment sections allowed you to interact while remaining anonymous. 

My advice? By a dog and take up backpacking. Get out of the house.

Trust me, you'll thank me later.

So what's the point with these hearings if they don't even hear or remember what these people that come to testify before them have been saying.

 

Now that it turns out that Comey already have clarified  this issue long time ago, i suggest the crazy mob with witch hunters quells their thirst for blood and keep their mouth shut. An apology to Trump is demanded.

Miss the Zerohedge family, taking a break. I still love you. It's better to stand back and evaluate the situation. Then tear down the installer of lies. It's coming. Be patient. Sorry that been absent. I still love my family. You have to analyze all angles of information. Then, go full throttle. 

I love Zerohedge Family. Never forget. I'm in deep web forums. You have to connect the information in a logical manner. It's unfolding slowly. Not good for Democrats and corporate TV. I stop there.

The shit you see in deep below is incredible. But, you still have to check the facts.

Vatican masonic order of jesuits Illuminati rule the world for centuries, they are building theirs New World Order - one government, one religion, global socialism-technocracy, depopulation(because overpopulation destroying biosphere) - check Georgia Guidestones also who has funded it, "order out of chaos"- they create a crisis and than they resolve it towards NWO.

Important people in a society works for them, they are giving careers for obedience, we are living in a social pyramid system managed by jesuit masonic order.

Just learn why jesuits were suppressed for 200 years in western countries and were allowed to return only a few decades ago - also in USA (there is pattern easy to recognize). They escaped to Russia and Columbia and created in an underground Illuminati masonic sect.

Society of Jesus was the most powerful intelligence agency - of Vatican - and they still are, all national intelligence agencies are controlled by jesuits, rest is a theater and actors.

First Rothschild Nathan was rescued by jesuits from a camp and they made him theirs banker, he was not a smart Jew that become extremely rich, but he was just working for most powerful intelligence agency, also Soros is Christian Knight of Malta same as Rothschilds, Rockefeller, Brzezinski..., and Bush and Clinton are Skull and Bones - it is also an jesuit organisation and jesuit symbol.

Jesuit masonic order works by an undercover organisatios in order to hide.

Bill Hughes, "The Secret Terrorists and The Enemy Unmasked

"The Rothschilds were Jesuits who used their Jewish background as cover their sinister activities.

The Jesuits, hands Rothschilds and financier Nicholas Biddle, sought to take control over the banking system of the United States. "

 

Napoleon Bonaparte; 1769-1821; emperor of the Frence

“The Jesuits are a MILITARY organization, not a religious order. Their chief is a general of an army, not the mere father abbot of a monastery. And the aim of this organization is power – power in its most despotic exercise – absolute power, universal power, power to control the world by the volition of a single man [i.e., the Black Pope, the Superior General of the Jesuits]. Jesuitism is the most absolute of despotisms [sic] – and at the same time the greatest and most enormous of abuses…”

 

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865; 16th President of the United States

“The war [i.e., the American Civil War of 1861-1865] would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits.”

 

Marquis de LaFayette (1757-1834; French statesman and general. He served in the American Continental Army under the command of General George Washington during the American Revolutionary War.)

“It is my opinion that if the liberties of this country – the United States of America – are destroyed, it will be by the subtlety of the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests, for they are the most crafty, dangerous enemies to civil and religious liberty. They have instigated MOST of the wars of Europe.”

 

Edmond Paris (Author of the book The Secret History of the Jesuits)

“The public is practically unaware of the overwhelming responsibility carried by the Vatican and its Jesuits in the starting of the two world wars – a situation which may be explained in part by the gigantic finances at the disposition of the Vatican and its Jesuits, giving them power in so many spheres, especially since the last conflict.”

 

R. W. Thompson (Ex-Secretary, American Navy)

“[The Jesuits] are the deadly enemies of civil and religious liberty.

 

Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821-1881; famous Russian novelist)

“The Jesuits…are simply the Romish army for the earthly sovereignty of the world in the future, with the Pontiff of Rome for emperor…that’s their ideal. …It is simple lust of power, of filthy earthly gain, of domination – something like a universal serfdom with them [i.e., the Jesuits] as masters – that’s all they stand for. They don’t even believe in God perhaps.”

 

"The Jesuit Order, therefore, stands before us as the embodiment of a system which aims at temporal political domination through temporal political means, embellished by religion, which assigns to the head of the Catholic religion - the Roman Pope - the role of a temporal overlord, and under shelter of the Pope-King, and using him as an instrument, desires itself to attain the dominion over the whole world."

Count von Hoensbroech, 1911, German Noble and ex-Jesuit

 

Pope Clement XIV (Who had “forever” abolished the Jesuit Order in 1773)

“Alas, I knew they [i.e., the Jesuits] would poison me; but I did not expect to die in so slow and cruel a manner.” (1774)

 

“Above all I have learned from the Jesuits. And so did Lenin too, as far as I recall. The world has never known anything quite so splendid as the hierarchical structure of the [Roman] Catholic Church. There were quite a few things I simply appropriated from the Jesuits for the use of the [Nazi] Party.

Adolph Hitler (1889-1945; Nazi leader and chancellor of Germany from 1933-1945)

 

"The Fuhrer had come to power, thanks to the votes of the Catholic Zentrum, only five years before, but most of the objectives cynically revealed in 'Mein Kampf were already realized; this book, an insolent challenge to the western democracies, was written by the Jesuit Father Staempfle and signed by Hitler. For—as so many ignore the fact—it was the Society of Jesus which perfected the famous Pan-German programme as laid out in this book, and the Fuhrer endorsed it."

Edmond Paris, 1965 French Historian The Secret History of the Jesuits. Page 138

 

“The Jesuits wrote the first 25 rites of Scottish Freemasonry in then College de Clermont in Paris in 1754”

The True origin of Scottish Rite Freemasonry According to the Masonic 

Quiz Book: Ask Me Another, Brother by William Peterson

Obedience to Rome

After receiving a message from Pope Benedict asking the Society of Jesus to affirm its fidelity to the magisterium and the Holy See, the Congregation presided over by Nicolás responded, "The Society of Jesus was born within the Church, we live in the Church, we were approved by the Church and we serve the Church. This is our vocation... [Unity with the pope] is the symbol of our union with Christ. It also is the guarantee that our mission will not be a 'small mission,' a project just of the Jesuits, but that our mission is the mission of the Church."

Oh my goodness! More facts to show there is no collution, or obstruction!

So, Comey testified under oath that President Trump never attempted to obstruct any of his investigations, and a week later publicly released a memo stating that President Trump did attempt to obstruct one of his investigations. 

This same Comey is a lawyer, a "brilliant" lawyer, a lawyer so "able, effective, and respected" that he was given the job of FBI Director of the USA.

So Fat Ass Donny Two Scoops asked  Comey to drop the investigation into Flynn and the G-Man told him to go fuck himself. Ergo, no obstruction occurred because Comey wouldn't countenance it. Ask Comey instead about attempted obstruction and I expect the answer would be different.

Nice try at obfuscation, though. Keep on flailing.

Did your mother drop you on your head as a baby?  Telling someone to stop an investigation is placing an obstruction in the way of an ongoing investigation.  It doesn't matter one iota what the response to that order (or request) was - it still represents an obstruction.

 

You think you've made an intelligent observation - you're SO wrong.  I've just placed you on my Idiots list.

Did Comey say this before or after Lieberman became the front runner for his old job?

Is Lieberman a rook or a knight? I don't think he is a queen.

Lieberman may be that character that is on stage early in the first act (9/11), then doesn't appear back on stage until late in the third act.

Makes me think of another aged New England pol who popped into the national spotlight during the 2016 campaign.
