Sarah Huckabee Sanders at WH Press Briefing: James Comey "Gave False Testimony"

I imagine this was in response to a question about Steve Bannon calling Comey's firing a huge mistake.

She does make a good point on this. It's good to see these issues being raised, and not politely either.

22 No question he did. And it was right to fire him, the guy had to go. Literally everyone thought so right up until the billisecond it was announced, then it became a hideous tyrannical Naziklan move by the worst man since Hitler.

The guy wasn't just a liability, he was an active opponent to the president and justice its self. He was a blatant mole undermining the administration with leaks and failure to act as ordered.

46 Comey perjured himself.

He went before congress and testified under oath that he had not made a decision about charging Hillary until the investigation was completed, but in fact he was circulating a memo around the FBI containing his rationalization for his decision not to charge her MONTHS before the investigation ended, and before several key witnesses were even interviewed.

Comey is a liar and a fraud, and Trump was right to fire him. His only mistake was not doing it sooner.

It was the timing of the Firing that was bad and also the process...The way he was humiliated. I did not see a point to that and I think it hurt PDT.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at September 11, 2017 04:22 PM (39g3+)

70 Oh, and all reiterate an idea I expressed before....

The FBI, being part of the federal bureaucracy has proven unable to investigate the federal bureaucracy. This shouldn't be a shock as organizations that police themselves usually end up doing it very poorly.

Perhaps Trump will clean things up a bit...but then the next Democrat administration and we are back to the existing clown show.

I think this can be fixed though by changing the reporting structure of the FBI.

I propose that the head of the FBI serves a two year term. After two years, each state governor votes to retain or fire the head of the FBI. If 26 vote to remove, each state can nominate a replacement. Every governor gets a vote. We have a run off if no one gets to 26 votes.

This was the FBI serves the states and can effectively police the federal government in a way it cannot now.

79 The one thing I that makes me smile about Comey every time I think about it is the way Trump rubbed his face in the dirt when he fired him. Comey was already doing the backstabbing, and was already plotting to take Trump down; so good on Trump for publicly taking the biggest dump on Comey that he possibly could.

If this was the old days, Comey would have been drawn and quartered and have his head put on a pike at the entrance to the FBI.

81 I would agree that once Trump had decided to keep Comey, it was politically stupid to then fire him the way he did.


It doesn't mean Comey didn't deserve it, but if Trump's goal was he didn't want to deal with Russia nonsense, he made sure it had legs when he fired Comey over that.

Just flip it around, if Comey said he was looking into Hillary's email and Obama fired him, our side would be screaming about it.

Trump's colossal two screw ups were not firing Comey on Day 1 and letting Sessions recuse himself. He should have asked for Sessions resignation if he felt he had to recuse himself.

Sarah is what we'd call a nice corn fed gal around her. She's about like a great-aunt of mine was in her heyday. I only knew her in her older years, but even then, she was one with whom one did not fuck with.

One they told about that aunt and this would've been way back, likely probably in the late '30s or '40s. Her husband, my grandmother's brother, was something of a bit talker. He had a heart of mush, but he'd talk big.

Women smoking was becoming a thing, and he said if every caught any wife of his smokin, he'd whip her ass. Well, my aunt her him say that, unbeknownst to him.

That weekend, she got some of her friends over, from school where she taught, and they had a smoking party. My uncle was out and came back in. When he got in, she took a drag off a cigarette and blew the smoke right in his direction, and said, "Well, commence to whuppin!".

He just walked out and never said a word.

88 I think the Justice Department needs the equivalent of Internal Affairs in a police department: a group working in the umbrella who is there exclusively to catch bad cops and nail anyone crooked in the administration. Not exactly independent, but filled with people who are zealous for the truth and law, and protected from the consequences of working toward that. The system is far from perfect, but does seem to work pretty well for police services.

The only reason the Russia nonsense existed or was having any stature at all was because of a wall of lies from the left. It started before Trump even took office, for crying out loud, when exactly was the "safe time" to remove this bozo from office like he so richly deserved and his actions demanded?

I think it depends on the voice, but men can get away with it in a way women cannot. Once she reaches that screechy part of the voice that passion and emotion pushes her to (perhaps justly), it leaves the range of persuasion and simply becomes something people want to hide from.

She was asked by a reporter what HER opinion was of her colleague, Steve Bannon's assertions about Comey's firing being catastrophic politically for the administration.

She said that "Steve likes to use extreme words in his comments , I'm sure CBS is pleased with the ratings of the interview. I'm here to report the for the president."

She was then asked if Trump had watched the interview, and she said she didn't know if he had watched the entire interview , she knows he has seen clips.

On and on with the questions about Bannon. She finally told the press it was funny how she was getting more questions about Bannon now than when he was in the administration.

(1) Having taken an oath before a competent tribunal, officer, or person, in any case in which a law of the United States authorizes an oath to be administered, that he will testify, declare, depose, or certify truly, or that any written testimony, declaration, deposition, or certificate by him subscribed, is true, willfully and contrary to such oath states or subscribes any material matter which he does not believe to be true; or

(2) in any declaration, certificate, verification, or statement under penalty of perjury as permitted under section 1746 of title 28, United States Code, willfully subscribes as true any material matter which he does not believe to be true[31]

Note the requirement to be *material* to the matter at hand. There are several Supreme Court cases which go into defining "material".

Doesn't she have a small child? I know she is a mother so if she doesn't currently have a toddler then she has had one in the past and thus knows how to respond to the tantrums.

177 Note the requirement to be *material* to the matter at hand. There are several Supreme Court cases which go into defining "material".

Yeah that's one of those common sense concepts worked into lawyer speech that sleazy and tricksy types bend and twist into something it was never meant to be.

Its meant to keep people from being busted for forgetting what color someone's eyes are and saying the wrong thing. Or some other minor, immaterial lie (or thing that can be said to have been a lie). Which is why the Scooter Libby thing annoys so many people.

Just skim the memo from Rosenstein (also clearly someone completely unfit for his job) about the firing. Disregard the contributions of idiots like Holder and Gorelick, who just echo what the adults quoted also say.

Comey is one of the most ridiculous and damaging public figures in recent history - which is saying a tremendous amount, given the situation. And it's obvious. Can't imagine a reason Bannon would think getting rid of him was a mistake, from any angle worth considering.

250 Comey lied when he said he hadn't already decided to "pardon" Bribe Me-Granny. He was of course, just following Obama's lead, who was also using her FOIA-free home-brewed server under a psudeonym.

Obama offered the phony "intent" standard, i.e., "She meant no harm", which is irrelevant. When Trump said "I hope you can let this go" about Flynn, that was supposedly Obstruction of Justice. Yet when Obama pronounced her innocent, essentially ordering the Justice Department to do the same, That's Just Good Government Cos' Everybody Knows That My Trousers Are Perfectly Creased!

Somehow the question of the Clintons having their own personal version of the US Code never even arises anymore. But the question that interests me is this:

When all our Chinese spies went missing in 2010, did Hillary do that negligently or did Obama do it purposely? Or both?

Posted by: The Gipper Lives at September 11, 2017 05:18 PM (Ndje9)

251 I'm going to say what I have thought for a long time - the whole Russia thing was an attempt by the deep state to keep Comey in place.

He deserved to be fired, but if Trump had done that day one, he would have been accused of doing it to derail the Russia investigation. He also kept hearing from Comey privately that there was nothing to it, Trump would not be accused, blah blah blah.

So he foolishly bought into the crap being shoveled to him, that the Russia thing was nothing. And Comey kept leaking and leaking, and doing as much damage as he could get away with. Finally trump wised up and fired his ass - but it was too late, damage done.

Look, people try to do the right thing, be nice, give the benefit of the doubt. It is exactly what Comey counted on. It is exactly what the press played up. Sessions and Trump didn't know the guy was double dealing until it was too late.
