Report Says Trump Asked Comey To End Flynn Probe; White House Pushes Back! [Video]
Tonight the Trump administration is denying the latest information that President Trump asked former FBI Director Comey in a meeting to end the FBI probe of Michael Flynn. Is that it?
Whenever Conservatives get too close on REAL news like Seth Rich and the coverup of his murder or the unmasking of names by Susan Rice, well, it seems the liberal MSM or the drive-by media have to shoot something out to get everyone to focus on something else. THAT would be called a distraction. That’s what liberals do best – distract people from the REAL news. Looks like they have done it again, Focker.
H/T Fox News:
The White House pushed back late Tuesday on a report that a memo from James Comey claimed President Trump once asked the ex-FBI Director to end the probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
The New York Times said Comey wrote the memo shortly after an Oval Office meeting on Feb. 14, the day after Flynn resigned from the Trump administration. The paper acknowledged it had not seen a copy of the memo, but said a Comey associate read parts of it to a reporter over the phone.
The memo was presented as the clearest evidence yet that Trump tried to influence the Justice Department and FBI probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign and alleged links to Trump’s associates.
But the White House rejected the characterization that the president tried to shut down an investigation.
“[T]he President has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn,” an official said. “The President has the utmost respect for our law enforcement agencies, and all investigations. This is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the President and Mr. Comey.”
Trump reportedly told Comey, “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.”
According to the Times, Comey wrote in the memo that Trump told him Flynn had done nothing wrong. But Comey did not say anything to Trump about limiting the investigation, replying, “I agree he is a good guy.”
Here’s the report from Fox News:
Separately, the Associated Press reported that Comey had written a memo stating that Trump had asked him to shut down the Flynn investigation following a Jan. 27 dinner between the president and the then-FBI Director. It was not immediately clear whether the AP and New York Times reports referred to the same memo or whether Comey had written memos after two separate meetings.
Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe also testified last week on Capitol Hill that there “has been no effort to impede our investigation to date.” The FBI had no official comment on the Times report Tuesday.
The Justice Department also declined to comment on the New York Times report, on the existence of the Comey memo, or whether there was any such conversation between Trump and Comey.
Ok folks! Let me tell you what this is ALL about….Distract! Distract! Distract! That’s what Democrats do best. When the Conservatives are striking a nerve, Democrats and liberals always seem to find something they want you to think is BIGGER news to distract you from the real news. That’s what they do.
What’s the REAL news today….for Conservatives?…Seth Rich was murdered. There seems to be someone who asked the DC police force to “stand down”. Seth Rich WAS the DNC leak! Seth Rich sent over 44,000 emails to WikiLeaks! But HEY! Who’s reporting on THAT news?! …Anybody? Anybody?
This reminds me of the Benghazi disaster. IT was NOT about a video, but that’s what ALL the MSM reported on. That’s what was ON the news and IN the news. Not the truth.
Stay focused people! Conservatives must have hit a nerve with the news about Seth Rich and Susan Rice, so now, the liberals on the left are striking back and it’s a good one.
