Tyler Durden's picture

Former FBI Director James Comey has agreed to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee in open session, Senators Richard Burr and Mark Warner announced on Friday. In a statement released late on Friday, the committee said the open hearing will be scheduled after Memorial Day.

Sen. Richard Burr, committee Chair, said “the Committee looks forward to receiving testimony from the former Director on his role in the development of the Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian interference in the 2016 US elections, and I am hopeful that he will clarify for the American people recent events that have been broadly reported in the media."

Committee Vice Chair Mark Warner added that he expects the former FBI director to "shed light on issues critical" to the committee's investigation and that Comey "deserves an opportunity to tell his story" and that the "American people deserve an opportunity to hear it."

Since the hearing will take place after its original scheduled date next Wednesday, it will take place after Trump has returned from his global tour next weekend.

Fuck Comey, Deep State piece of shit.

Amazing that DotGov has the nads to talk about "terrorists", while the Clintons, and their Kosher Nostra handlers run free, and dipshit bureaucrats like Comey refuse to acknowledge the truth about Ziokike control of the US.

Going to testify in front of people who feel the same way about Trump as he does.

Maybe he can bring his memos! ;-)

Maybe he can answer questions about His Name Was Seth Rich,,,or Weiner had a laptop,,,or Hillary had a server in her bathroom,,,or Hillary sold Uranium to the Russians,,,or Hillary favored cadmium-laced Moroccan phosphates over Florida phosphates,,,

nmewn's picture

Or (homework assignment for Inspector Comey Clouseau...lol) maybe he can point to the word "intent" in the voluminous Espionage Act and if found provide "context" to its meaning ;-)

Who believes a fucking word he says? Just another deep state jack off.

The bells are tolling for Mr Trump.

Soon you'll hear "Mr Trump, you're fired!"

You heard it here first, ZHers.

Probably the Senate Intelligence Committee, which speaks volumes.

I am sorry, that question will not be on the test,,,all questions will center around how Trump sucks.

I've lived and learned and want these phonies to retire.

Just one question James......who killed Seth Rich?"

Bay of Pigs's picture

"We don't have any information on that. You'll have to ask the Washington DC police about that investigation".

Next question.....

FoggyWorld's picture

If the DC police are running the investigation, why does the FBI have Seth Rich's computer?

The middle east is going to flame up big time if this rolling press story gets to impeachment stataus. Every news channel in the world will be focused on it. Leaving IsRaHeLL to do "what ever it likes in Syria".  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vweHtxqnh-Y

I have to know how to lie because I like being rich and employed by Soros...sayeth Comey.

Robert Trip's picture

What a joke.

Comey can be grilled for hours and not say anything relevent to any investigation.

He is the hands down master of saying "fuckall."

Let me guess, you have an unnamed source to back your statement?  Back to your shinebox, Wop.  

giorgioorwell's picture

Pfftt...Doesn't take a genius to guess that Comey is not going to be gentle. You need a source for that?   Since you're not smart enough to get the pun of my username and try and guess my ethnic background (not even close), I'll guess your sources of choice are Brietbart based.

One doesn't have to like or dislike Comey's testimony.  Every word that he uses narrows down the box that he's in, the box where he placed himself.

  • Did you know?
  • When did you know?
  • You didn't know?
  • But your former testimony said ...

I'm off to wallymart for their popcorn, I hear it is on sale.

Problem is the Senators never, ever ask the right questions and rarely even try to do a follow up. It becomes a circus rapidly and Comey knows that and will just be another clown.

"Every word that he uses narrows down the box that he's in, the box where he placed himself."

That's right.
Comey can't rightfully claim now that Trump attempted to obstruct justice regarding Flynn in regards to Comey; not after Comet testified to Congress UNDER OATH post Flynn investigation, that there were NO ATTEMPTS TO OBSTRUCT JUSTICE regarding the Flynn case BY ANYONE.

Any statement to such a 'claim', as Comey has indicated to the press RE 'memo'; would be admitting willful perjury before Congress; & will ruin ANY & ALL credibility that Mr. Comey MAY have left; which in itself is dubious, regarding the fact that Comey willfully withheld evidence posessed by the FBI that Seth Rich was the DNC leaker SIX DAYS before Assange released the DNC emails that Seth Rich gave Wikileaks ...

Eric Holder was found in contempt when he lied under oath. Nothing happened to him. Comey is a white shoe boy too. Nothing will happen to him either. Next

Again, this is nothing short of a coup d'etat. That's what should be investigated. So start with Schumer but make sure to include McCain.

I can't wait to witness the elephants and donkeys on parade at the Barnum and Bailey circus making complete jack asses out of themselves!!! The carnies have more class, common sense, and human decency than these wild beasts!

Trump has been under investigation since George W Bush!!! That is not an investigation, it's a form of harassment, intimidation, slander, and a black bag job fishing expedition that has feloniously taken place because there is ZERO probable cause!!! Trump's staff knows people from Russia?! Big fucking deal! So do I and so does anyone who lives within 20 miles of my house because Jewish people paid them to immigrate to America- BTW! Many of them are not even Jewish!!! There must be minimally a thousand of them in our community. So is everyone in my community that knows people from Russia under investigation?! Then add the slander, harassment, and intimidation from the LIARS on CNN, NBC,CBS, PBS, at WaPo, and NYT, I would have to say that that would be highly stressful especially when you know that you are innocent and being treated like Joseph K!

If the IRS ever calls me in for any of this I want the 6'8" lawschool student to be on the other side of the room.

Yeah, but will he testify under oath?

rwmctrofholz's picture

Comey will be "eliminated" before he testifies and Chris Cuomo will chide about how it's apparent to everyone about how Trump had Comey taken out because a leaked memo of what Comey intended to say, regardless of questions, fell into CNN's lap.

Comey #IV?  Is this like the Rocky series?  Fast and Furious? 

bluez's picture

I wonder if Comrade Comey suffers from the delusion that he is "honest" and "sincere"? To let understanding stop at what cannot be understood is a high attainment. Those who cannot do it will be destroyed on the lathe of heaven.

Well you can't deny that comey is NOT loyal to his Masters
