James Comey Literally Tried to Hide Behind a Curtain to Avoid Trump

20 May 2017, 09:56 | Terri Saunders

As liberals cry for impeachment and attack Trump as a puppet of the nefarious, world-historical genius Vladimir Putin has become in Democratic mythology, they should remember criminal activity isn't so easy to prove.

US stocks rallied back on Thursday after seeing their biggest drop in eight months the previous day on worries that the political turmoil could sideline Trump initiatives such as tax cuts that investors see as favouring economic growth.

"This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!" added Trump, who said in a speech on Wednesday that "no politician in history" had been treated worse or more unfairly than he has.

James Comey really is the master of the contemporaneous record.

Any talk that he had engaged in criminal behaviour was "totally ridiculous", Mr. Trump told reporters.

Trump is clearly hoping to change the negative news flow when he heads off this weekend for a nine-day foreign trip where he will meet with dozens of Muslim heads of state, the leaders of Israel and the Palestinians, Pope Francis, and leaders of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries and the Group of Seven industrialized nations.

As previously reported, Trump's team also set up a dinner meeting with Comey where the President is reported to have demanded loyalty of the FBI Director.

But any break in attention to the topic is likely to be short-lived.

That is likely one of the reasons Rosenstein named a special counsel Wednesday to lead an independent investigation into whether anyone on the Trump campaign cooperated with Russian Federation.

The statement came shortly after the announcement that Robert Mueller, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, would investigate ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Democrats - and many Republicans - had been eager to hear from Comey after reports emerged this week that Trump may have urged the then-FBI director to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Every passing day brings a fresh revelation. Each new twist of the controversy keeps it in the spotlight, distracting from their broader agenda. "And I think if you even look at what Acting Director [Andrew] McCabe said last week, he made it very clear that they had the resources that they need and that the work continues".

"I hope that former Director Comey's testimony will help answer some of the questions that have arisen since Director Comey was so suddenly dismissed by the President. The Republicans have to prepare for a long period of torture".

Pressed by Blumenthal on whether Rosenstein, as a Trump appointee, would have an inherent "conflict of interest", Comey fell back on his judgment of Rosenstein's character.

The House and Senate intelligence committees are leading the investigatory charge on Russian Federation, but a smattering of other committees - including the Senate Judiciary committee and its subcommittee on crime and terrorism, the House Oversight and Government Reform committee, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the Senate Armed Services Committee - have also opened related probes. Mr Mueller will take over the FBI investigation.

Sanders said on "This Week" that Congress should complete its review first, which she said she is confident will show that Trump associates had not involvement in Russia's actions. "The biggest problem for Republicans is the fact that they now own health care and have to do something on it". "What if it doesn't come in 2018, especially since midterm elections are approaching?" If Republicans break with Mr. Trump, they risk incurring the wrath of his supporters and spurring a primary challenge.

But a report in the New York Times this week that Trump allegedly asked Comey to end the investigation undercut the president's rationale and has led to accusations from some in Congress that Trump was attempting to obstruct justice. Each has a distinct goal, said John Barrett, a law professor at St. John's University in NY who formerly worked for the independent counsel who investigated the Iran-Contra affair during the Reagan administration.
