Today, Comey ADMITTED having a friend LEAK a memo to the New York Times.
That ALONE is grounds for firing that bastard, and frankly, as a an FBI director with top clearance, committing such an act is TREASON.
In his written testimony, released Wednesday, Comey writes that during a meeting the president the day after Flynn’s firing, Trump indirectly asked him to quash the Flynn probe, telling him, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
With regard to that incident, Senate Intelligence Committee chair Richard Burr (R-NC) asked Comey if he thought “the president was trying to obstruct justice or just seek for a way for Mike Flynn to save face, given he had already been fired.”
Comey then suggested that the question of whether Trump obstructed justice is part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
“I don’t think it is for me to say whether the conversation I had with the president was an effort to obstruct,” Comey said. “I took it as a very disturbing thing, very concerning, but that’s a conclusion I’m sure the special counsel will work toward: to try and understand what the intention was there and whether that’s an offense.”
Comey reportedly cleared his testimony with Mueller beforehand. His comments to Burr are the strongest indication yet that the president himself is now under investigation.
