Oh Lord. Here we go again. Liberals yet again claim they have the “smoking gun” that will land Trump an impeachment after disgraced FBI director James Comey came forward to the New York Times on Tuesday alleging that President Trump asked him to drop an investigation into his former security advisor Michael Flynn, which liberals are now in a massive hysteria over. But there’s just one major problem with Comey’s allegations, and President Trump wasted no time bringing out his secret weapon to blast these idiots right back into their land of sparkles and unicorns where they belong.
To catch you up on the entire story in case you’re not clear on the details, Comey told the New York Times that he kept notes about a meeting he had with President Trump when the investigation with Michael Flynn was going on, where the president allegedly asked him to drop the case because Flynn “was a good guy.”
“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” Trump told Comey, according to Comey’s record of the meeting, as reported by the Times. “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
Now liberals are in an absolute frenzy, saying that the president’s request was “obstruction of justice,” and grounds for him to be removed from office as the President of the United States. There’s just one slight problem with this latest liberal frenzy: It never freaking happened the way they claim. What liberals don’t realize is that the truth will always prevail. It is sharper than a two-edged sword, and it’s the brutal secret weapon that will get President Trump out of this mess. Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe testified just last week before Congress that, “There has been no effort to impede our investigation to date.” BOOM!
President Trump was also quick to push aside the ridiculous allegations, with the White House saying that the conversation did take place, but that the President has the “utmost respect for our law” and would never do anything to hinder an open investigation. The White House stated:
“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 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.”
But that’s just half of the problem with liberals’ case for impeachment against Trump. If the New York times is basing their entire calls for Trump’s impeachment on Comey’s testimony, there’s one massive issue in the way that Comey went about it. If Trump had in fact “obstructed justice,” why is Comey just now coming forward with this information? Keeping knowledge of a felony is a crime in of itself called “misprision of felony” that could land Comey in PRISON for up to THREE YEARS! Mike Huckabee has a brilliant analysis on this:
The New York Times is reporting tonight that President Trump asked former Director Comey to stop the Flynn investigation.
18 USC § 4 reads: “Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”
In effect, the Times, based solely upon the word of James Comey, is insinuating, if not directly stating, that the President obstructed justice.
I have serious questions about James Comey’s credibility in this regard.
This is called misprision of a felony.
Concealing knowledge of a felony and failure to report is, itself, a felony.
First, if the former FBI director was taking notes of meetings where the President had allegedly told him to drop a criminal investigation (i.e., to obstruct justice), then why did Comey wait until now to reveal this? In fact, by keeping his notes private until now, he was concealing them. Right? (That is the first element of misprision — concealment.)
Second, if Comey did not reveal this information “as soon as possible … to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States,” then that means only one of two things —
(A) Comey did not think the President had committed any crime, or
(B) Comey was committing a crime, himself, (i.e. misprision of a felony) in order to have something to hold over the President.
On the other hand, if he did, in fact, reveal this to a judge, or to the Attorney General, or to any other person in authority, then by revealing this information to the press, Comey may be impeding an active investigation.
So if these memos actually do exist, this does not look good for Comey. Which makes me wonder if they do, in fact, exist.
If I were Comey, I would certainly lawyer up and plead the 5th if he is called to testify before Congress.
Sounds to me like Comey is pissed off that Trump removed him as the FBI director and is trying to enact his childish revenge by fabricating an elaborate hoax about a conversation with President Trump that never even freaking happened. If this conversation DID in fact take place, why is this moron waiting until now to drop this “bombshell?” Why didn’t Comey come forward with the active investigation into Michael Flynn was going on?
