James Comey is about to lay the smack down on Donald Trump. But it is important that patriotic Americans have an understanding of what may happen at a select committee hearing – given the appalling level of misunderstanding of Admiral Rodgers testimony yesterday.
Obstruction of Justice – Reality
James Comey has clearly described obstruction of justice. He has described in terms Trump asking him to back off the Flynn investigation and demanding loyalty.
Obstruction of Justice – Trump Spin
James Comey doesnt say “obstruction of justice” so it didn’t happen.
In the hearing, do not expect James Comey to say ‘obstruction of justice’ happened. That is a judgement call.
Is Trump Under Investigation – Reality
Comey’s testimony letter shifts tenses. It states that at first Trump was not under investigation. However it also clearly says that Comey fully anticipated that this might change, and warned Trump against it. The shifting tenses of the past in the later parts of the memo imply that Trump was under investigation by the time he was dismissed.
Is Trump Under Investigation – Trump Spin
The Trump camp is trying to lie and spin that Comey early on saying that Trump himself was not under investigation at the start of his interactions means that he is not being investigated now, or that he will not be. This is a plain lie.
In the hearing, do not expect Director Comey to breach any classified protocols which would include stating that Trump is under investigation.
Did Admiral Rogers Excuse Trump – Reality
Hell no, he did not. He GLOMARed a message on National Security. Rogers is NSA – like Coats, his function is NATIONAL SECURITY. Trump could not have “obstructed justice” by leaning on Rogers, but would have interfered with a national security investigation. This matter is, itself, a matter of National Security.
ONLY the FBI has a twin intelligence and law enforcement function. Obstruction of justice is inherent in Trump’s intervention with James Comey only.
Did Admiral Rogers Excuse Trump – Trump Spin
Trumpers were stupid enough to think that Rogers covered for Trump. He went silent on him like a submarine slipping behind the baffles of its quarry. As senior NSA John Schindler wrote in an exclusive, Rogers has issued an unprecedented ‘preserve evidence’ order and has held town halls at the NSA describing election hacking.
James Comey is, as I wrote in January, America’s white knight. He is a master chess player. He is not interested in Twitter plaudits. He will not give away anything on an ongoing criminal and national security investigation. He will describe facts – HOW Trump obstructed justice – and not make characterizations – “Trump obstructed justice”.
Nothing can stop the impeachment of Donald Trump that is presently ongoing. Comey is here today to stop the lies of Trump and his White House flunkies.
