MORE FAKE NEWS?

2017_05 15 FBI Dems

The New York Times has run a report claiming that President Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to drop the agency’s investigation into former national security adviser Mike Flynn.

The Times said their reporters had not visually seen the memo, but portions were read to them.

Seriously?  MORE anonymous sources?   Wait while I roll my eyes.

The White House has denied the report.

Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr, R-NC, says he is skeptical that the Comey memo is real.

House Oversight Committee Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, has officially asked the FBI to turn over all memos, summaries and recordings regarding Comey’s communications with Trump.

National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster denied the story through a written statement and in front of the press.  He described the discussion as having been “wholly appropriate.”

Morning Joe had Ned Price on to speculate about whether the Trump administration is a worse threat to us than ISIS.

Note: Price is a former Obama special assistant who donated to Hillary’s campaign and quit his job at the CIA rather than serve under Trump.

Meanwhile, CNN Money reporter Heather Long has been interviewing Trump voters for months in Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, and Wisconsin.  She says they don’t care about Russia or the FBI.  They care about  good jobs.

    From Breitbart:

    The Times seems to oversell the story, interpreting the word “hope” as a request. Assuming, for the sake of argument, that the Comey memo is accurate, what Trump says — “I hope you can let this go … 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.” — is never actually framed as a request at all. Yet the Times calls it a “request” and an effort to interfere in the investigation.

    OOPS!

    On January 23, 2017, the Washington Post published a story saying the FBI had COMPLETED its investigation into Flynn in late December and had found no evidence of wrongdoing or illicit ties to the Russian government.

    According to the New York Times article, Comey claimed that President Trump asked him to drop the Flynn investigation on February 14, 2017 … THREE WEEKS LATER.
