Former FBI Director James Comey made several startling admissions before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence today. In view of all of the hype leading up to today’s testimony the event was at best complete dud and perhaps a total disaster – at least from the standpoint of the Deep State and the DNC.
Here is a summary of some of the key revelations from Director Comey’s testimony today.
Comey Admits Leaking Memos to Press
In arguably the biggest bombshell from today’s proceedings, Comey admitted to giving his own private memos to a Columbia Law Professor friend to leak to the press. The leaks came in response to President Trump’s tweets insinuating that he had recorded conversations with Comey.
Did I miss something or did Comey just say he asked a friend to leak information to the press? Is this a joke?

Fake News Retractions
The Fake News Media then eagerly mischaracterized the contents of the leaked memos to smear President Trump and are now being forced to retract previously published false stories:
Today Director Comey stated that President Trump pressured him to hault the Russia investigation despite previously testifying the opposite:
This first testimony occurred on May 3rd. Trump and Director Comey had dinner on January 27th and in today’s testimony Comey stated that he has not spoken to the President since April 21st. The testimonies from both May 3rd and today took place after the last contact between the two, thus Mr. Comey was either not telling the truth on May 3rd or he was not telling the truth today.
When pressed today Director Comey stated that President Trump never actually asked him to stop the investigation, but that such was communicated implicitly through innuendo. (This is how you weasel your way out of a perjury charge, with word games and splitting hairs.)
Comey and Lynch Obstruction
Mr. Comey testified today that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch pressured him into not calling the Clinton email probe an ‘investigation’. Comey even stated that he complied with her request.
But to the Fake News Media and their lemming followers Democrats and their appointees cannot be held to the same standard that they foist upon their political opposition.
Russian Collusion Narrative Finally Falling Apart
At one point Mr. Comey waxed eloquent about the ‘fact’ of Russian election interference, only to later concede that not a single vote was altered.
The Fake News Media and the DNC are in spin mode and damage control, but more and more of their demigods are beginning to realize that nothing is ever going to come of this phony Russian collusion narrative:
I want to like Mr. Comey but clearly he is a sophist of the highest order. He uses posture, his eyes, his tone of voice, psychology, word games, parlance, etc. to appear sincere and honest – it’s a confidence game that is very effective. But clearly Comey tells lies that are 6 feet 8 inches tall.
Comey is also compromised because he was involved in helping the Clinton Foundation launder money while he sat on the Board at HSBC bank, a fact the Fake News Media conveniently ignore. Oh and guess who made the above-referenced situation go away? Yes, Loretta Lynch while she was a U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of New York.
All of this, and much more, is getting dangerously close to coming to the surface and into public light. The powers that be know this is the case which helps to explain the absolute irrational and demonic frenzy that characterizes the media and the progressive left at this moment in time.
If the first domino falls – say with the indictment of former Director Comey – the whole Deep State may be compromised. And you can bet the criminal elite are going to fight like devils to keep this from happening.
