this may be a dumb question but, didn't Comey back himself into a corner now? He swore the white house did not ask for dismissal of any case and his magic memo states other wise. One of his two statements is a lie. So he can either claim he perjured himself or claim he lied in the memo. Either way I see his reputation as shot and a good chance he will be the one going down.

I'm not convinced he authored any "memo" at all, This might be another figment of the NY'times imagination. This "revelation" is published based on a supposed "phone call" from an anonymous source who "read" excerpts from the "Memo".....Doesn't past muster, if there was a memo why not send it in, time stamped, dated and with Comey's signature. Until such time I consider it more fake news.

Then again Comey is slick enough to know anything in writting could be used against him one way or another no matter what he wrote, why else use 'surrogates" and why not send the actual memo or a photocopy of it?

So far, the memo has not been proven to exist.
It's only a New York Times story
based on an anonymous source.
We're not even sure the source exists,
other than a reporter's fabrication.

The Establishment media will maintain that the "memo" is true,
because that's what they want to be true.

Even if Comey goes to prison for perjury,
based on absolute proof of guilt,
the dinosaur media will STILL claim that THAT'S the witch hunt!

Vindicated in my theory.

Meh... the guy thought he was the final authority, in everything he "graced"

Well.... I guess it's not hard to imagine someone being smarter than an Obama groupie like Susan Rice.
Eric Holder doesn't strike me as a shining gem of brilliance, botching Obama's "fast and furious" scheme - who the heck comes up with stupid names like that....   Is "Idiot" fitting for Holder?   Even Lois Learner was a sneaky little weazel by comparison, but couldn't handle direct confrontation (banging on her neighbor's door to escape the press)...meh!

I'd guess... Comey thought he was just plain smarter than anyone else - and it's likely his house-of-lies is going to come tumbling down on him.   It won't be long before he's completely discredited, or... winds up in prison.   I bet he knows the Democrats won't so much as give him the time-of-day.

"Oh the tangled web we weave,
when we set out to deceive."

Here's the best option, cut a plea deal, stay out of prison for fingering Obama, Clinton, Rice, Loretta Lynch & lets not forget Valerie Jarrett    Some suspicion.... of wholesale corruption and for a complete list, take everything the Democrats are accusing Trump of ... just change the name to the correct Obama staffer & you might hit the jackpot!
Yep, perfect proof. The left doesn't want intellectuals, nope, they require parrots, people willing to do as they're told, someone essentially dumber than toast.

One of his two statements is a lie. So he can either claim he perjured himself or claim he lied in the memo. Either way I see his reputation as shot and a good chance he will be the one going down.

IMO - he overplayed his hand.  He thought he held the cards to "trump Mr. Trump" and walk away scott free, but finally, by a twist of fate, he's starting to get called on it - even though he's probably leaking a lot to the press ... "life insurance".  It's unraveling, and if it continues, the MSM will end up looking like fools - then turning on him like rabid dogs.

Wifey just said, "I don't know what it is about "him", I want to trust "him", and "he's" doing a lot of the right things, I just don't know."
I said, "James Comey....?!?!?"
"No, Donald Trump."

Pretty much summarizes the conflict I see between James Comey and Donald Trump.

I've trusted James Comey, until recently... just before the election, when he pronounced Hillary Clinton "innocent because lack of intent."
(never heard of that law before, and having been through security training several times, "intent" doesn't define releasing classified material, if you get caught with it - automatically guilty!)   Therefore, I absolutely do not trust James Comey - because I know he was making up crap about "intent", and I know he knows, but tried to play on the general public's ignorance.

I have not really trusted Donald Trump in the past, until this flap with Comey.  If it came down to a comparison between Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, there's absolutely no contest. 

But, Comey...?   He's sort of like a COP gone bad.  No matter which way he tries to run, he's made his bargain with the Devil-in-Pansuits, and I suspect ... she's waiting for the opportunity to "cash in his chips".

What does Comey have left, a plea deal or make an immunity plea for testifying against his former bosses.
I expect him to become more and more irrational, saying and suggesting foolish things.

Maybe the best answer to "why did Comey back himself into a corner..." - he thought Hillary would win handily and give him cover.

Well, it should keep the summer interesting.
Or next week, till the left finds something new, or create. Granted, this story was designed to ruin Trump, and the left has kept it alive, but I believe it's about to die a sudden death, only to be replaced by another leftist fraud.
I'd like everyone here to take every new story that breaks, and before giving it credibility by reacting as the media wants us to, let's give it 48 hours in the sunlight.
It'll either wither and die, or show more true detail of whether it's true or just another "Fake News" hit piece.

Same here, the guy has what he considers his own form of justice, Vigilante Justice, that is. Comey is a good little leftist and he sees it as a  duty to bring Trump down, even if that requires outright lying..
Let us assume for a moment what Comey believes is true, if that's the case, and he thought Trump asked him to drop an unfinished investigation, he was by law, obligated to turn over said evidence at that moment.
This is why I believe his notes were written after the fact, back when he suspected his time was running out. Yes, I believe they were later fabricated from spurious notes and memories.

     Here's some more about Comey's obligation to notify the DOJ
     of any attempt to pressure him to drop an investigation:

https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2017/05/17/lets-see-j-edgar-comeys-memos-on-obama/

CALLER: Hey, Rush. Hey, I remember that James Comey in the Senate testimony
said that nobody ... had ever interfered or asked him to stop an investigation. ...
And I got that from the Times' own website. They have his testimony on there.
So their own website contradicts the memo story. That’s point number one.

RUSH: Right. A, it’s not just Comey; it’s McCabe, the now acting director ...
he said it also in testimony late last week,
that there’s been no interruption of any investigation, nobody tried to stop it.
...

RUSH: Gregg Jarrett at Fox News is a lawyer by training,
and he has posted a legal analysis at the Fox News website,
(titled) “<Comey’s Revenge Is a Gun Without Powder> —
    http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2017/05/16/gregg-jarrett-comeys-revenge-is-gun-without-powder.html

"Here is what we do know. Under the law,
Comey is required to immediately inform the Department of Justice
of any attempt to obstruct justice by any person.
Failure to [inform the Department of Justice] would result in criminal charges against Comey.
(Title 18 U.S. Code 4  and  Title 28 U.S. Code 1361)
He would also, upon sufficient proof, lose his license to practice law” if he sat on news like this.
...

“But by writing a memo, Comey has put himself in a box.
If he now accuses the president of obstruction,
he places himself in legal jeopardy for failing to promptly and properly report it.
If he says it was merely an uncomfortable conversation,
he clears the president of wrongdoing
and sullies his own image as a guy who attempted to smear the man who fired him.
Either way, James Comey comes out a loser.
No matter. The media will hail him a hero.
After all, he gave them a good story that was better than the truth.”

YEP, here it is in a nutshell, seven words that can be taken in any form, Hell, he may even have been talking about being fired and Trump asking Comey if:  "I hope you can let this go",

Quote
James Comey, the recently fired FBI director, was asked by President Donald Trump to end an investigation into the actions of former national security adviser Michael Flynn,

This is where the lies started. This was ABC parroting NY Slimes, no one but Comey could make that assumption, that is unless Comey acquits himself of the claim and throws the Slimes reporter under the bus.
The rest is all assumption, but did this reporter CYA his own ass by recording the conversation?
I ask because, note the quote, there is a comma after the end, meaning it was taken out of context, it was not a completed sentence.
I have yet to see anyone mention the parsing of this. "I hope you can let this go,"

He should never have been picked to head the FBI. The Clinton's obviously got to him but more importantly he liked the attention and the cameras.

If Michael Flynn is dragged into this frakus...then Sally pencil-neck needs to come to!

This thing is taking on the look of political blackmailing Michael Flynn, and an attempt to cover up involvement of Obama administration hold-overs... with James Comey smack in the middle of a potential firing squad.

My burning question:  Will James Comey Purger himself... and be charged.   :drool: :drool: :drool:

I can just imagine what he's been thinking lately... "If I go down, there's a whole bunch of assholes I'm takin' with me, dammit!"

Agree, he's already proven he'll sell out anyone for personal gain, so yes, he'll cut a deal and the rest will burn.
