Hmmm … So far, Former FBI Director Comey is Disappointing the Anti-Trump, MSM and Liberal Democrat Witch Hunters
AFTER ALL THE HOOPLA FROM THE MSM AND DEMOCRATS, IS THERE REALLY NO THERE, THERE?
As reported at the NY Post, some of former FBI director Comey’s prepared statement for his Thursday testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee are exactly what President Donald Trump has previously said. Comey did tell Trump on three separate occasions that he was not personally under investigation. But of course Comey would not make this public. He had no problem when investigating Hillary Clinton making those matters pubic. It has also been stated that Comey is not going to accuse Trump of obstruction of justice. SO THEN WHY IN THE HELL ARE WE HAVING THESE HEARINGS!!! This is beginning to look exactly what it is, nothing. A completely orchestrated attempt bey Democrats, the media and former Obama operatives to sabotage Trump’s presidency.
So President Trump was absolutely correct when he insisted — to much derision from Democrats and the mainstream media — that then-FBI Director James Comey assured him three times that he wasn’t personally under investigation.
That’s just one of the revelations in Comey’s prepared statement for his Thursday testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Yes, some of the others paint the president as unaware or unconcerned with how the government works, and as obsessed with top officials’ “loyalty.”
And Comey says Trump repeatedly asked for the investigation of ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn to go away.
But also that the prez never crossed the line by actually ordering a shutdown.
An order would be considered obstruction of justice. But just making the request is troubling — since it suggests the president doesn’t appreciate why investigative agencies like the FBI must remain fully independent and immune from political interference.
CNN Forced to Give Kathy Griffin the Axe … After Unhinged, Tolerant Left Comedians Sense of Humor Showing Beheaded Trump
LOOKS LIKE KATHY GRIFFIN’S NEW YEAR’S EVE JUST OPENED UP …
In the wake of the ignorant and despicable attempt at so called humor of doing a photo shoot of a severed head of President Donald Trump, CNN was forced to cut ties with uber-Left comedian Kathy Griffin. A CNN spokesperson called the photos “disgusting and offensive.” It would appear that the backlash against these disgusting photo’s was more than CNN could take. CNN had no choice, even if they did not first intend to fire her, but to “sever” ties. What is most telling though in this story was the fact that liberals like Kathy Griffin live in such a monolithic bubble that they actually thought this was funny. Why else would she have done it in the first place? Many of the Left actually tried to defend this. Sadly, this is how vile and insane many on the Left have become as they just cannot accept an election.
Imagine living in a bubble so impermeable it didn’t occur to you that retailing a photograph of a decapitated president’s head would be a horrendous career move — a bubble in which you don’t know anyone who doesn’t think the world would be a better place once Donald Trump had had his head cut off.
That is the world Kathy Griffin lives in.
That’s why she was excited to pose for it. That’s why she sent it to TMZ. That’s why she initially defended the picture to the journalist Yashar Ali by claiming it was “art.”

CNN’s decision comes one day after photos were released of Griffin that showed the comedian holding up a bloody head resembling that of President Donald Trump.
“CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program,” the network said in a statement.
Griffin has apologized for the photos, taken by provocative celebrity photographer Tyler Shields.
“I beg for your forgiveness. I went too far,” she said in a video posted to Instagram late Tuesday. “I made a mistake and I was wrong.”
Admitting the images were “too disturbing,” Griffin said she asked Shields to take down the photo.
Griffin has co-hosted CNN’s annual New Year’s Eve program alongside Anderson Cooper since 2007.
TELL US SOMETHING WE DON’T KNOW … NEWSFLASH, THE MSM IS BIAS AND HAS AN AGENDA AGAINST TRUMP.
According to a Harvard University study, the MSM bias against President Donald Trump is huge and unprecedented. If it seems like the MSM has it out for President Trump and reports pretty much every thing he does as negative, that is because they do. Just look at the charts below and see how the MSM reports on topics in a positive or negative slant and then take a look at how Trump compares to other presidents, especially Obama.
Keep this in mind when you watch the news. They are no longer reporting it, they are slanting it to fit their liberal, left-wing agenda. The MSM was AWOL for Obama’s eight years and the endless scandals like Fast & Furious, Benghazi, IRS-gate, let alone the lies of Obamacare. But for Trump, they do not even give him a chance. The MSM is working in lockstep with the Democrat party as their propaganda arm. Remember this, especially at election time.
A major new study out of Harvard University has revealed the true extent of the mainstream media’s bias against Donald Trump.
Academics at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed coverage from Trump’s first 100 days in office across 10 major TV and print outlets.
It found that the tone of some outlets was negative in as many as 98% of reports, significantly more hostile than the first 100 days of the three previous administrations:
In America they analyzed CNN, NBC, CBS, Fox News, the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal.
They also took into account the BBC, the UK’s Financial Times and the German public broadcaster ARD.
Every outlet was negative more often than positive.
Only Fox News, which features some of Trump’s most enthusiastic supporters and is often given special access to the President, even came close to positivity.
Former FBI Director James Comey Under Oath SaysTrump Never Pressured FBI to Halt Investigations … “It’s Not Happened in My Experience”
SOME ONE APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN CAUGHT IN A LIE …
FBI Director James Comey testified under oath on May 3rd, 2017 that the Trump Administration had not obstructed justice in any investigations. Now his so-called leaked memos state something different. Interesting By the way, lying during sworn congressional testimony is committing perjury, a federal offense punishable by up to five years in prison.
“So if the attorney general or senior officials at the Department of Justice opposes a specific investigation, can they halt that FBI investigation?” asked Sen. Hirono of Comey during the question-and-answer period of his testimony.
“In theory, yes,” replied Comey.
Hirono pressed: “Has it happened?”
Comey said, “Not in my experience. Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that – without an appropriate purpose. I mean where oftentimes they give us opinions that we don’t see a case there and so you ought to stop investing resources in it. But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason. That would be a very big deal. It’s not happened in my experience.”
Former FBI Director James Comey testified under Senate oath May 3rd that the Trump administration had not pressured his agency to halt any investigation for political purposes. Comey admitted that the FBI has always been free to operate without political interference—flying in the face of Democrats’ paranoid delusions about Russia and President Donald J. Trump, and exposing for what it is a new political witch hunt Wednesday by enemies within the president’s own Justice Department.
On Wednesday, DOJ appointed a special prosecutor, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, to drum up more hype about Trump’s imaginary “collusion” with Russia during the general election.
On May 9th, President Trump fired Comey, who has spent 15 years shilling for Hillary Clinton.
Videotaped testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee blows apart the phony narrative New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt wove on Tuesday, which resulted in Mueller’s appointment. Schmidt’s only sources were anonymous. They claimed that on Feb. 14th, the day after National Security Adviser Michael Flynn resigned, Trump had asked Comey to end an investigation into Flynn’s connections to Russia.
Schmidt’s allegations that Trump attempted to obstruct justice hinged on the sources’ accounts of a memo authored the same day. Schmidt, a Democrat party lackey, admitted he hadn’t even seen the document—dated nearly three months before Comey’s testimony that totally contradicted it.
During the Commencement ceremonies at the US Coast Guard Academy, President Donald Trump praised the graduates and the Coast Guards fine work in defending the United States. He also took the opportunity to eviscerate the liberal MSM and their unfair treatment of his administration.
The president praised the 199 graduates for choosing to defend the country and their parents who raised them to pursue military service.
“These fine young cadets are about to take their rightful place on the front line of defense for the United States of America,” he said in a commencement speech at the academy in New London, Connecticut. “Cadets, you deserve not only the congratulations but the gratitude of each and every American, and we all salute you.”
It was Mr. Trump’s first commencement address to a U.S. military academy, and he went to lengths to highlight the important and unique role the Coast Guard plays in national security.
“Out of the five branches of our Armed Services, it’s only the Coast Guard that has the power to break through 21 feet of rock-solid Arctic ice, right?” he told the cadets. “You’re the only ones. And I’m proud to say that under my administration, as you just heard, we will be building the first new heavy icebreakers the United States has seen in over 40 years.”
President Trump provides a lesson to the Coast Guard graduates and some advice when dealing with pressure like the unfair actions of the MSM:
In a commencement ceremony at the Coast Guard Academy, Mr Trump said “no politician in history … has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down, can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams.”
“Over the course of your life, you’ll find things are not always fair,” he said. “Things happen to you that you do not deserve and are not always warranted, but you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight. Never, ever give up. Things will work out just fine.”
