Trump Responds To Comey Testimony

Tyler Durden's picture

Earlier today we noted that CNN, and its anonymous sources, seemingly made a 'mistake' by reporting that Comey would offer testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee tomorrow refuting Trump's prior claims that he had been told on three separate occasions by the former FBI Director that he was not personally under investigation.  Unfortunately, at least for CNN, Comey's opening comments released earlier today confirmed that Trump's original statements were, in fact, perfectly accurate (see "Looks Like CNN's Anonymous Sources Got This One Wrong"). 

Marc Kasowitz, the lawyer representing President Trump in the Russia probe, has now released Trump's thoughts on Comey's opening statements saying he feels "completely and totally vindicated."

"The president is pleased that Mr. Comey has finally publicly confirmed his private reports that the President was not under investigation in any Russia probe. The President feels completely and totally vindicated. He is eager to continue to move forward with his agenda."

 

Meanwhile, the RNC has also weighed in:

"President Trump was right.  Director Comey's statement reconfirmed what the president has been saying all along - he was never under investigation."

 

Of course, while we now know that Trump was never under investigation for colluding with the Russians, we're sure the MSM will turn their attention to whether or not he's officially under investigation for "obstructing justice."  If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

* * *

And, for those who missed it, here are the three instances, directly from Comey's testimony, in which he personally told President Trump he was not under investigation:

1.  January 6th Meeting at Trump Tower:

"In that context, prior to the January 6 meeting, I discussed with the FBI’s leadership team whether I should be prepared to assure President-Elect Trump that we were not investigating him personally. That was true; we did not have an open counter-intelligence case on him. We agreed I should do so if circumstances warranted. During our one-on-one meeting at Trump Tower, based on President Elect Trump’s reaction to the briefing and without him directly asking the question, I offered that assurance."

 

2.  January 27th Dinner at White House:

"During the dinner, the President returned to the salacious material I had briefed him about on January 6, and, as he had done previously, expressed his disgust for the allegations and strongly denied them. He said he was considering ordering me to investigate the alleged incident to prove it didn’t happen. I replied that he should give that careful thought because it might create a narrative that we were investigating him personally, which we weren’t, and because it was very difficult to prove a negative. He said he would think about it and asked me to think about it."

 

3.  March 30 Phone Call:

"I explained that we had briefed the leadership of Congress on exactly which individuals we were investigating and that we had told those Congressional leaders that we were not personally investigating President Trump. I reminded him I had previously told him that."

Trump responds to Comey: "Blow my balls, bitch..."

Comey [allegedly] signs on with the Jerry Springer show ... anonymous sources report he will undergo his transgender surgery in Phuket by the hands of highly skilled Ladyboy doctors.

The tricky "ball removal procedure" will be carried out by none other then Dr Hung Lo from Beijing who has successfully removed more balls [technically called, Ballectomy, for those serious medical affectionados on zh] then any other surgeon in the world.

Hormonal treatment has already begun, credible secret sources have been heard to say.

Sources also report that the Klinton Krime Foundation is [allegedly] sponsoring his surgeries and expensive hormone shots.

Trump is cleared....Now its time to go after Clinton, Podesta et al.

Trump may be under investigation for grabbing Comey by the pussy.

Comey just switched from "BS mode" to "cover own ass" mode.

Someone showed him a photo of Guantanamo I reckon.

Three Times Comey Assured Trump He Was Not Being Personally Investigated

I wonder how a lowlife like this ended up director of the FBI

Then again... a monkey sat on the porch at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave for 8 years.

The Republicans will not allow Trump to be impeached, but this show is far from over. This will be a death strike by a thousand cuts until the 2018 elections. The Democrats don't want Trump gone, they just want him discredited. Still, with the old guard of Pelosi, Waters, Finestein and the Clintons controlling the Democrat Party, the Sanders wing will have no one to vote for and little motivation to go out and vote against the incumbents. However, if the Special Prosecutor can get into the Trump family finances, then many other things are possible

Marc, you shyster lawyer, you must know this is round one.  The NWO gang behind Hillary and her killers won't stop, they want Trump out, period.  And this gang has unlimited resources, both financial and in terms of intelligence.

There really needs to be a new term for spying, or a new term for being smart. The same word can't be used for such contrary things. Especially given the quality of intelligence the democrats are displaying every single day...

Man, this should put Mark Warner's Depends in a wad tomorrow morning. Perhaps someone should give him a WTI-Crude enema (since we have a lot in storage) before the Drama Queen testifies in the morning.

Worse than that. Hannity, Limbaugh and Levin have been duped by this Mike Rogers clown. They think him a hero for clearing Trump. Listen more closely..."In my three plus years as director, nobody has tried to....". That gives two and a half years of cover to Obama, Rice, Jarrett et al.

Comey and his family had deep ties into the Clinton Foundation, perhaps the most diabolical example of treason in American history

Wonder if anyone will have enough balls tomorrow to ask Comey about Seth Rich, the Awan brothers and what he knew why being director.

vato poco's picture

never happen. if by some miracle it DOES, they'll cut off the impudent questioners mic, the feed will "mysteriously" go blank, and the transcript will 'show' that no such question was ever asked. this ain't the deep State's 1st rodeo.

His name was Seth Rich

Perfect response. I was hoping they wouldn't be defensive and instead declare victory. Maybe the new team around him has learned something

And ONCE AGAIN the Tyler's, ZH and the vast majority of posters here are proven correct yet again.

And the false Russia narrative and propaganda spewed by the DNC and MSM is left in a big pile of steaming shit.

Cabreado's picture

Everybody needs to start at the endgame and work backwards.

The endgame is to marginalize and remove Trump; the chaos is energized by a divided, ignorant, entitled citizenry, which in turn empowers a corrupt and defunct Congress to continue the shitshow, providing cover...

If it's all broken, it's all broken.  

The People are failing.

Too simple, eh?

Thank you ...

Yes, it was bullshit, obvious bullshit , that wasted vast amounts of time, energy, resources .. and to deflect, obfuscate,  ..

A bit of kabuki to entertain ..

Monumental waste and fuckery that really, is beyond words , they all stink up the place ..

This fuckery will be replaced by the next, that fuckery, so on and so forth ,,

There is no coming back, the rubicon is crossed ..

" How in the world did she work for any intel agency?!"

'Government intelligence' is a bit of an oxymoron.

Deep State needed a stupid, simple-minded Progressive Liberal to try to undermine Trump.

Fortunately it was a total FAIL!

But I am sure they have acquired many more.

It is time to cut the entire corrupt IC down to size and get some honest Americans running things.

Warthog777's picture

So then this whole bull shtit story on the MSM-FAke news outlets, that Trump fired Commie to cut off the "investigation into Russian Collusion" can be RETRACTED!

 

I'M NOT WAITING!

It will be retracted when Putin (who is, according to Maxine Waters, at this very moment, marching down the Korean peninsula, after going through China & North Korea) enters Seoul, riding a Siberian tiger, shirtless, singing God Save the Queen...lol.

Which is to say, never ;-)

swmnguy's picture

OK, but let's say  instead of "God Save the Queen," he's singing "I'm So Bored With The USA."  

You can't say "never" to that, wink-emoji or not.
