New revelations about the Trump administration's ties with Russia once again shine the light on FBI Director James Comey.

Courtesy of WaPo: 

Less than two weeks before Election Day 2016, Comey announced that the FBI was again investigating whether there were previously unreleased emails from Hillary Clinton on a laptop that she did not own. Comey felt voters needed to know this even though the search warrant showed that the FBI had “no new evidence” that Clinton had done anything wrong. Now we know that when Comey spoke up about Clinton while remaining silent about allegations of contact between Trump’s team and the Russian government, not only were there mere allegations but also concrete evidence that such contact was frequent and ongoing.

It gets worse for the FBI director. The Post reported Tuesday that near the end of the transition from the Obama administration to the Trump administration, outgoing CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. wanted to tell the Trump team that Michael Flynn had misled incoming Vice President Pence and others on his contacts with Russian officials. Comey disagreed: 

The FBI director pushed back primarily on the grounds that notifying the new administration could complicate the agency’s investigation. The bureau, Comey also insisted, shouldn’t be “the truth police,” according to an official familiar with his thinking at the time. “In other words, if there’s not a violation of law here, it’s not our job to go and tell the vice president that he’s been lied to.” 

This is, to put it politely, utter garbage. Comey believed that the entire country needed to know that a presidential candidate might be connected to information on a laptop that she didn’t own, but the vice president did not need to be told privately that a key presidential adviser was definitely lying about his relationship with a foreign government. The inconsistency leaves one speechless. 

To be clear, Comey’s disgraceful intervention was not the sole cause of Clinton’s loss. But every way of looking at the numbers show that it was the most decisive factor. Without Comey intervening, the Oval Office would be likely be occupied by a different person right now. And with every new revelation, the interference appears less and less justified. The sooner he faces the consequences for his colossal mistake the better.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to type out a post while cussing a blue streak? 

Well for the record it is damn hard.

At this point I think that at least one of our intelligence agencies or Congress should be investigating James Comey and trying to discover what motivated his intrusion on Trump's behalf into the 2016 election.

Look I don't know if the Russians were blackmailing him, if Trump simply paid him off, or if he is just a partisan hack. But there is some reason why he did what he did, and why he did not do his job as it pertained to Trump and his ties to Russia, and the American people deserve a fucking answer.

      Oh those darn polls you believe in 10:16. Funny they didn't reflect that - RIGHT BEFORE THE ELECTION.... only after they were proven wrong by the election they started to change their tune. Just before the election everyone on team Hillary was saying none of this was having any affect, and that voters had long since solidified their votes. Then after the election, it was all excuses.

      Anyways forget polls for an instant, how about some actual verifiable people that changed their votes? Lets hear from these supposed vote changers! they must be real right? Where the hell are they?

      Flynn is not the whole story - Follow the oil money to TREASON:This is what Trump and Putin are up to: Exxon Mobil, under Rex Tillerson, brokered a deal with Russia in 2013 for 60 million acres of Russian land to pump oil out of, but all that Russian oil went through pipelines in the Ukraine, who heavily taxed the proceeds, and were applying for admission into NATO at the time.Putin subsequently invaded Ukraine in 2014, secured the routes to export the oil tax-free by sea, and took control of the port where their Black Sea Naval Fleet is based, by taking the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine by force and not giving it back. This was Hitler-tier imperialism that broke every international law in the free world.After Obama sanctioned Russia for the invasion, they could only pump oil from approximately 3 of those 60 million acres. But now Rex Tillerson is our Secretary of State, and as of today, there’s information circulating that Donald Trump will likely unilaterally remove all sanctions against Russia in the coming days or weeks.Putin will make half a trillion (500 Billion) dollars from that much untapped oil. All pumped tax-free through Crimea, stolen from Ukraine, now owned by Russia. Putin may have subverted our government just to become the richest man in the world. **According to leaked docs Trump will get 19% cut (Rosneft stock placed in Cayman accounts in Dec/16). Feel free to circulate widely.

    Veteran public defender: Trump is exhibiting all of the ’12 most common signs of a guilty person’

    Ask any criminal attorney: the president is engaging in all the behaviors a guilty person would,” Abramson writes, before listing off all of the 12 most common tactics used by guilty people to cover up their actions.

    Among other things, Trump is alleging that there is a conspiracy against him, is deflecting scrutiny of his actions by raising “issues irrelevant to the case,” is using anger and self-righteousness to avoid discussing the facts of the case, and is making himself difficult to access for further questioning.

    The bottom line, says Abramson, is that there are “12… common signs of a guilty person” and Trump is “exhibiting all of them.”

    ‘What kind of White House is this?’: Robert Reich eviscerates the ‘leaderless’ Trump administration

    Speaking with CNN host Anderson Cooper, Reich said all new presidential administrations go through growing pains, but said nothing comes close to the “chaos” going on in the White House right now.

    ‘I’ve never seen the chaos that I have seen and witnessed in the Trump White House,” Reich said. “You have an executive order, a travel ban going out, without any coordination with any other agency, creating absolute uncertainty. I mean wild, wild uncertainty among the people who are supposed to be enforcing it.”

    “You’ve got a chief of staff who doesn’t even know how exactly to run a White House,” he continued. “You’ve got Kellyanne Conway, who is out there promoting Ivanka’s products. Sean Spicer is a late-night comedy joke. You’ve got leaks and back biting. It’s not clear what is going on, who’s in charge.”

    Reich wasn’t done.

    “The National Security Agency doesn’t want to brief the White House for fear that it is all compromised,” he exclaimed. “Even the Situation Room is compromised with regard to Russia. What kind of a White House is this anyway? Donald Trump was elected on the premise that he would actually be cleaning up, not only the swamp in Washington, but would be applying tough business practices to management. Well, this is actually the sloppiest management I frankly have ever seen.”

    LOL: Putin Is Angry Now Because Trump Gets More Media Coverage In Russia Than He Does

    Vladimir Putin is super pissed because Russian media is covering Donald Trump more than him, and he only has himself to blame.

    Over the course of the election, Putin ordered Russian state media to endorse and positively cover Trump’s campaign in an effort to help Trump win against Hillary Clinton.

    Putin wanted a puppet in the White House, and he basically got one. After all, Russia is preparing for war in Europe in anticipation of Trump weakening NATO by pulling American support. Russia has also been getting really aggressive by simulating air attacks on a United States Navy destroyer and they have a spy ship parked really close to our shoreline. Russia has also deployed cruise missiles in violatio of a treaty. And if that’s not enough, Trump is still expected to lift sanctions placed on Russia.

    The Kremlin is currently enjoying the fact that Trump has a bunch of pro-Russia staffers in his administration and Russian media loves that fact as well. So they have continued lavishing Trump with the kind of praise and ego-stroking that American media outlets refuse to provide.

    But Russian media won’t be doing nearly as much now because Putin is reportedly tired of waiting for Trump to do his bidding and he is jealous of the media coverage Trump has been receiving.

    That’s right. The honeymoon appears to be coming to an end between Trump and Putin, at least when it comes to how much Russian media covers him.

    Why Trump’s rant over leaks won’t help him

    ...In short, Trump’s antics — like Kellyanne Conway’s spin — are no match for reality. “There is something bigger going on here given the background of Russian interference in U.S. elections which is on a larger scale than anything seen in the past,” Edelman told me. “In the end of the day, the Trumpkins can’t have it both ways. Did Flynn do something wrong or not? If he did, how would anyone have known absent the leaks since even [Vice President] Pence wasn’t told before The Post, Times, etc. published?”

    Trump is kidding himself if he thinks this will all go away. To the contrary, until we know exactly what Flynn was doing and whether it was at Trump’s direction, his presidency will be seriously impaired.

    Admit it: Trump is unfit to serve

    Let’s not mumble or whisper about the central issue facing our country: What is this democratic nation to do when the man serving as president of the United States plainly has no business being president of the United States?

    The Michael Flynn fiasco was the entirely predictable product of the indiscipline, deceit, incompetence and moral indifference that characterize Donald Trump’s approach to leadership.

    Even worse, Trump’s loyalties are now in doubt. Questions about his relationship with Vladimir Putin and Russia will not go away, even if congressional Republicans try to slow-walk a transparent investigation into what ties Trump has with Putin’s Russia — and who on his campaign did what, and when, with Russian intelligence officials and diplomats.
