    A paraphrase of a supposed unknown associate. Wow Great verification of a story, brought to us from a known fake news source and Trump hater. They are chasing their tails to get rid of Trump when there is real proof of misdeeds by democrats, but not a peep is heard.

  • scooner001@yahoo.co.uk

    the man you are listening too knows nothing and the news reporter is making up his own narrative

  • scooner001@yahoo.co.uk

    word of mouth is not factual you have no memo you have no news . this is fake news people

    Now Flynn pleads the Fifth. The truth is obvious! Hopefully, Comey will not suffer a sudden illness or accident before he can testify.


    COMEY WAS BEING VETTED BY TRUMPS TEAM AND THEY KNEW FOR ONE THING HE KNEW THE WHOLE HILLARY EMAILS THING WAS STRANGE. COMEY TARNISHED HIS REPUTATION BY DOING What he did how he did. The whole thing needs to be re-investigated. By trying to see if Comey could be brought over to Trump's side ie drain the swamp obviously Comey was sticking with the Clintons who had rewarded him protected him . Also he was being given another chance to do something about the Podesta case.why can't they make a deal? reduced charges and sentences if he co-operates.

    You can't convict the President of the United States, from a headline in the news paper. NYT did not have the memo in their hands, it was read to them over the phone. (Trey Gowdy)

    Trump asking the former FBI director to: "cut Michael Flynn some slack, because he's a good man", does not obstruction make.

  • Jessica

    Comey testified weeks ago that NO one asked him to stop any investigations. He either lied then or he's lying now. Regardless, Comey is a liar.

    An anonymous source read to me a memo Podesta wrote claiming Hillary gave him the order to execute Seth Rich. NBC, call me.

    what does the memo say verbatim? who has the memo? can I see a copy since it's not classified? who is the source of the leak?

  • Chris Boylan
    Chris Boylan Year ago

    LOL, more fake news. In an interview with msnbc's Brian Williams the other night, Michael Schmidt, the NYT reporter who authored the article, admitted that he never saw the Comey memo. As he told Williams “Someone that had seen [the memo] had recounted details to me.” So we have an anonymous source quoting hearsay from an anonymous source about an alleged memo. Got it.

    Snowflake faux news. Comey is and was obviously in the Clinton's pocket. What ever happened to Hillary's illegal e-mail

    No time for Kids Year ago

    Trump is jealous on Kim Jong Un, he wants the army, the soldiers and generals to be loyal to him and the secret service and police on his hand, just like Kim, they must develop a North Korean spirit and commit kamikazi for Trump, Comey is lucky that this happens in the USA, a democracy, otherwise he would already have had his state burial after a shooting squad penalty for not being loyal to Trump ordered by Trump and the civilians and press may hope Trump didnt record them on tape, think twice.

    This memo is fabricated. When Comey testified to congress, he said under oath, that nobody in the Trump administration interfered or tried to influence the FBI investigations.

    There is absolutely no way will the Republicans in Congress vote to impeach Donald Trump, even if he killed someone the Republicans wouldn't vote to impeach.

  • YouAreOneOfUs
    YouAreOneOfUs Year ago +1

    All the mentally ill posters here that say "Impeach Trump" or "Do you still support him" ect. I will prove just how mentally ill you are.
    1. What does the "memo" exactly say? Don't answer because you can't. They don't show you anything , no evidence and then tell you what to think. That makes you dumber than a bag of rocks.
    2. It's Comey's memo. He could 2a. Write fiction and make a memo to himself. 2b, He could have written it after he was fired and be the liar he is and say it was from before.
    3. Read the laws (codes) Hillary broke. They clearly state "Intent is NOT a factor". So for you mentally ill that means she HAS to be prosecuted. Comey admitted she broke the law and argued "intent" which any first year law student knows has NOTHING to do with the laws she broke, So clearly Comey knew. That makes him guilty after the fact and he should be in jail with Hillary. Nobody can claim gross incompetence to the degree that they didn't know the law he was investigating her under.
    4. You fanatics hate Trump so blindly that you attack him every time the media puts out fake news like this. Every story has been retracted later or proven an outright lie yet you rabid mentally ill fanatics keep taking the bait and publicly humiliating yourselves.

    Let me see whom I believe:
    Trump = no credibility left. Constantly lying.
    Comey = 100% credibility intact. Keeps telling the truth even when he could have concealed it (during elections).
    Can anyone help me figure this one out? Whom do I believe? Please help!

  • ✨aprilwearsgucci💕💋

    So Trump told the director of the FBI to stop the Flynn investigation. Isn't this obstructing a federal investigation? Time to sent in a independent special prosecutor.

    As much as I'd like trump to be impeached, it's... Not gonna happen. As long as the Republican elite have control of both houses of congress, impeachment would never happen for this miserable waste of oxygen. It's the same with Jackson and Clinton - as long as the ruling party has total control of the WH and the two houses of congress, then their representative president would never be impeached despite how great their crimes were.

    It is time to start sending our old raincoats to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Trump and his “ditto heads” will need something to put over their heads as they led out of the White House, in handcuffs, by the FBI. Instead of draining the swamp, Trump has added a whole bunch of new invasive critters to the swamp. History is not going to be kind to this administration and the Republicans in the Legislature. Many of the Republicans are responsible for this embarrassment (and possible crimes) to go on and on.. It is not only immoral, but also un-American. Thank God we have the FBI and other law enforcement agencies investigating President Trump and many of the critters in his administration.

    Regardless the party you affiliate with, Americans should seek objective evidence before conviction. Whether you deleted thousands of incriminating emails, or gifted Russian spies with sensitive intel, if proven beyond a reasonable doubt, get them out of Office. Americans should't settle with not being the number one priority from their elected officials. As well, Americans become so intrenched in a single party, that even the POTUS elections became a "us versus them" bash fest. Why battle each other (which won't change anything), when you have a choice to elect an individual who truly cares for the people. Then again, I'm just jealous that they get a choice.
