According to the New York Times, In February President Trump asked ex-FBI Director James Comey to shut down the investigation of Michael Flynn. Apparently after meetings with President Trump, Comey would write notes/memo about what they discussed.
New York Times admits they have not seen this unclassified memo. Part of this memo was shared by one of Comey’s associates with a Times reporter:
“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” Mr. Trump told Mr. Comey, according to the memo. “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
This memo, if it exists, never demanded to let Flynn off. It just seemed to express his personal feelings on the matter.
The White House says that this is not what the President said. I am going to give Comey the benefit of the doubt here. Maybe Comey wrote what he thinks the President was trying to communicate to him.
In the matter of evidence to be admissible in a court of law, records need to be shown as reliable. If it is felt that the memo is not reliable, this of course could be an issue to be argued. The legal definition of reliable is: accurate, authentic, exact, proved, genuine. A recording would of sufficed as proof, but there is not one. What if Comey just composed a memo which was in fact not what was discussed? Hey, he’s done a lot worse until Trump fired him.
This is what the White House had to say:
“While the president has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the president has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn,” the statement 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.”
So, in Trump’s released statement, per New York Times, which in fact would be used as evidence supporting what Trump claims, when he states it’s not an accurate representation of what he said. It’s kind of like he said, he said, in which you have to make a determination upon believability.
I am really surprised that the mainstream media is wasting my time in reporting something that is not even worth reporting. If there was some grey area that was discussed, it’s up to Comey to relay that to the President. This is nothing more than a witch hunt and nothing more. Things that are discussed between the President and some of his security intelligence teams should be off the record.
Why would Comey be compelled to take notes of everything the President says to him? Trump has never given him reason not to trust him. Comey, as far as I am concerned, is not a credible person anymore since he let Hillary Clinton walk free.
Funny that this incident should came out today, and miraculously Hillary Clinton launched her “Onward Together” campaign within about the same time frame. Wasn’t it Hillary Clinton that once said “When they go low, we go high?” Think about that statement from Hillary Clinton for a moment. It could mean many things, but to me her objectivity is to keep him low with her infiltrating resistance team. Did she have anything to do with a possible trap? In my opinion, I wouldn’t put it past her or her cronies. But, I do smell something very fishy here, I tend to go with my instincts.
Good luck New York Times, your credibility is definitely faltering with me. Get a grip!
