Comey says Trump's lying, Trump says Comey's lying

Irune Rengel | 14 Junio, 2017, 10:46

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning with a lot to say about former FBI Director James Comey, the economy and Democrats.

But President Donald Trump's newest week-long initiative could very well be derailed and plagued, once again, by a top law enforcement official's testimony amid continued swirls of the investigation into his campaign's alleged links to Russian Federation.

Trump's offer to testify heightens the drama of his standoff with Comey, who told senators that Trump had demanded his personal loyalty and had pressured him to drop a counterintelligence investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Friday boasted of the GOP's accomplishments under Trump thus far, and promised more to come, making no mention of Comey in a speech. After dodging the question the first time, Trump was pressed again, saying he wasn't hinting at the presence of recordings. I'll go out on a limb and say it's highly unlikely Mueller saw the Comey hearing as exonerating Trump of obstruction of justice. Trump said that he would be 100 percent willing to testify under oath.

But, sources said, the Credit Protocol, or a line of credit that Russian Federation was to provide, proved to be a hurdle. Petersburg International Economic Forum, which will be attended by thousands of business leaders from across the globe.

Comey, who was sacked by Trump in May, did not make any major disclosures about any links between Trump or his associates and alleged Russian meddling. All of this was surely in Comey's mind when Trump allegedly expressed his hope. "I mean, I will tell you, I didn't say that", Trump replied. Comey went along with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch's request to hide the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton, and later made the extraordinary recommendation not to prosecute her, because he did not want the public to blame him or the FBI for destroying her election prospects. After Trump's tweet, Comey said he couldn't stay silent.

At a news conference Friday, Trump had an entirely different version of events than Comey's, denying he asked for loyalty. He also said that Comey admitted giving to his friends the memos of conversations, one of which was classified.

"I think he was exonerated", GOP Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina, who chairs the conservative House Freedom Caucus, said Friday of Trump.

He said the FBI became "aware of facts that I can't discuss in an open setting that would make (Sessions') continued engagement in a Russia-related investigation problematic". From outside the hearing room, talk about how Trump is "new" to Washington, and "all New Yorkers talk this way" (like mobsters?) was being road-tested by Speaker Paul Ryan, who may never grow a spine, and Gov. Now, before he even testifies, the focus is both on Sessions and whether or not he would appear before the TV cameras like former FBI Director James Comey did last week, when 19.5 million Americans watched.

Democrats Fuming Over Sessions' Refusal to Answer Questions
Sessions denies meeting privately with Russian ambassador at Washington's Mayflower Hotel on April 27. He also denied having had any interactions with foreign government officials in a campaign capacity.

Moreover, the special counsel that was appointed was - coincidentally? - one of Comey's long-time associates, the Federal Bureau of Investigation director when Comey was Deputy Attorney General. "Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication", Trump wrote, suggesting that Comey had committed perjury.

"Nobody knows the system better than I do".

But later, Comey said that he had hoped to "prompt the appointment of a special counsel" for reasons that had nothing to do with Russian Federation.

Faced with this reality, Trump's apologists argue that an FBI investigation of potentially illegal presidential conduct is not a "proceeding" subject to federal obstruction-of-justice statutes.
