Sally Yates: Jim Comey Went "Rogue" In Setting Up the Pretext Interview With Michael Flynn and I Was Very Angry About That

Investigative reporter and Russia Hoax expert Lee Smith notes that this is the third time that Obama's partisan staffers have shifted all blame for Russiagate to Comey:

The Susan Rice CYA "By the Book" memo claimed that it was Comey who suggested that information about the Russia probe be illegally hidden from the incoming President Trump:

The section showed that Comey affirmed to Obama he was proceeding "by the book," and went on to discuss concerns about Flynn's known conversations with Russia's ambassador at the time -- conversations that would play a role later in the criminal case against Flynn.

Rice continued: "From a national security perspective, Comey said he does have some concerns that incoming NSA Flynn is speaking frequently with Russian Ambassador [Sergey] Kislyak. Comey said that could be an issue as it relates to sharing sensitive information. President Obama asked if Comey was saying that the NSC should not pass sensitive information related to Russia to Flynn."

Rice then wrote, "Comey replied, 'potentially.'

Well, really that's Obama suggesting that through a leading question, but Rice seems to claim it was Comey's idea.

As to Brennan's attempt to throw Comey under the bus: I'm not certain what Smith is thinking of, but my guess would be that he means Brennan's attempt to claim that it was Comey, not Brennan, who insisted on including the Steele Smears in the intelligence briefing Trump was given.

Comey says Brennan insisted on its inclusion, and Comey objected to its inclusion.

Brennan says Comey insisted on its inclusion, and Brennan objected to its inclusion.

According to Fox News' Catherine Herridge, sources familiar with the records say that "a late-2016 email chain indicated then-FBI Director James Comey told bureau subordinates that then-CIA Director John Brennan insisted the dossier be included in the intelligence community assessment on Russian interference, known as the ICA."

...

But in a statement to Fox News, a former CIA official [John Brennan?] put the blame squarely on Comey.

"Former Director Brennan, along with former [Director of National Intelligence] James Clapper, are the ones who opposed James Comey's recommendation that the Steele Dossier be included in the intelligence report," the official said.

Remember, the Steele Smears included in that briefing were very convenient for the FusionGPS frame-up, as it provided CNN the "news hook" to report on the otherwise unreportable-due-to-lack-of-any-verification "dossier." Of course that briefing was almost immediately leaked to CNN, so that they could publish about the dossier within days of the briefing, on January 10.

Also note that whoever insisted on including the Steele Smears -- which were included precisely so that CNN would get the "news hook" it needed -- is almost certainly the one who then leaked it -- illegally! -- to CNN.

(I also know, for a fact, that James Clapper was a source. But he might have been a confirmatory second source, rather than the first leaker, or the one who arranged the briefing to be leaked in the first place.)

So one can understand the contentiousness here: Someone might be going to jail for illegally leaking highly classified material.

And now, after Rice put the finger on Comey and Brennan put the finger on Comey, Yates puts the finger on Comey:


Committee chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., asked Yates about the circumstances surrounding the interview, particularly the actions of then-FBI Director James Comey.


"I was upset that Director Comey didn't coordinate that with us and acted unilaterally," Yates said.

"Did Comey go rogue?" Graham asked.

"You could use that term, yes," Yates agreed.

Yates said she also took issue with Comey for not telling her that Flynn's communications with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were being investigated and that she first learned about this from President Barack Obama during an Oval Office meeting. Yates said she was "irritated" with Comey for not telling her about this earlier.

I don't think this proves Comey is actually guilty here.

I think it proves that no one likes Comey, including his fellow partisan Democrats.

And I think this is more likely proof of an Obama-loyalist conspiracy to obstruct justice, by falsely blaming Comey, than proof that Comey did the things the Obamabots are accusing him of.

And I think they are pinning the blame on Comey because the real prime mover behind this illegal coup was Obama himself.

Update: artisinal 'ette says that Yates also tried to pin the suggestion of using the Logan Act as a pretext for an illegal investigation -- even though Comey says it was Biden who proposed this.

Again, seems like the Obamaoids are working hard to protect Obama and his successor, Joe Biden.

Update: Video added below.

12 Putting all the blame on Comey before "Trump has him killed" would ordinarily be a very good strategy. Problem is that Comey can see it, and knowing that drops dime to Trump solely to avoid CDKH memes. The guy's much more of a weasel than even Rosenstein.

26 A double blind trick I see coming up: If they blame it all on Comey, even though he didn't actually do it all, then they're going to make it easy to charge Comey. BUT when that gets to trial, none of it will pan out because a bunch of it was made up by them, and the charges will fall apart and Comey will walk free, laughing, just like everybody else who was in on it.

Of course it was always almost a certainty, and know it's known, that Obama and the inner circle were aware and in charge.

Apparently Yates lied multiple times today, according to some who follow the minutiae of all this.

In any case, her outrageous and ridiculous insubordination about the obviously legit and totally normal admissions EO (the "travel ban") remains one of the most vile acts of vandalism since Trump was nominated or elected. She's every bit as idiotic and hate-filled as Strzok or Brennan.

92 77 Could be enough to keep Rice off the ticket. That would put Russiagate (and by extension Biden's Ukrainian shenanigans) back on the front burner for the campaign.
And I think Rice is one of the most dangerous, "moderate seeming" POC that Biden (Jill) might otherwise choose.

One of my favorite days, of the past decade, happened approx 4 years ago. It was the day I came to AOS website, and there was a flaming skull. Comey, just weeks before the 2016 election, was reopening the investigation into Hillarys emails. I think everyone agreed that he did that just to exonerate her. But it was a very bad bit of timing. Always wondered what people on the left thought of that little bit of theater...maybe we are finding out.

It's clearly intensifying as we get closer to Durham finishing up but there have been subtle signs for a long time including Barr being asked last week by the House if he would hold Durham back until after the election and Barr basically said LOLGFY.

His name may be mud in the court of public opinion - any credibility he might have had as a competent public official was shredded in that trainwreck of an interview with Chris Wallace (!!).

As he won't be legally culpable - IIRC he was found to be negligent, but not malign in leaking information to his 'lawyer' friend - they can pin the blame on him to their hearts' content.

He'll be laughing his rear off somewhere in the woods.

IIRC, the late timing was partly due to McCabe, who sat on the trove of emails discovered on the Anthony Weiner laptop for ~ 1 month. The NYFBI had informed him and he brushed it off until the NYPD threatened to start leaking info, and then McCabe sent Strzok to pick up the laptop and informed Comey about it.

183 If you're Brennan/Clapper/Yates/Rice, you probably think that all the seven foot doofus had to do was shut his yap and let AG Loretta Lunch quietly decline to prosecute HRC and count on the Press to embargo the story about the WJC/Lunch tarmac meeting. Comey had to make himself the center of attention and tut-tut about being the paragon of moral propriety and savior of the Republic, unraveling the chain of events that led to Trump's election and the necessity for ever-deepening the conspirators' self-incrimination as part of an ongoing coverup. Now, there may be a real risk of legal jeopardy for some of them, but probably only with a Trump reelection (AG Harris shuts down Durham on day one with no care in the world about questions of "obstruction of justice.")

197 IRC, the late timing was partly due to McCabe, who sat on the trove of emails discovered on the Anthony Weiner laptop for ~ 1 month. The NYFBI had informed him and he brushed it off until the NYPD threatened to start leaking info, and then McCabe sent Strzok to pick up the laptop and informed Comey about it.

198 Here is the Logan Act reference, from Fox news piece:

Handwritten notes from then-FBI agent Peter Strzok indicated that Joe Biden, who was vice president at the time, may have mentioned the Logan Act at the Jan. 5 meeting. The Logan Act is a 1799 law that prohibits unauthorized American citizens from communicating with foreign governments or officials "in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States." It has never been used to successfully prosecute anyone.

When asked if Biden mentioned the Logan Act, Yates said she could not recall. She did say that Comey spoke about the Logan Act, but that she did not remember if he said this during the Oval Office meeting or in a conversation afterward.

But does it matter one iota at this point, in general and extant political concerns? Nope, not at all. The time for relevance has passed. No one cares. They won. Even if Comey goes to prison or hangs - which he should, of course - it won't matter politically. They won. They fucked with the transfer of authority following an election, and did so for years and got away with it. Even if they cook one or two of them.

There must be, agreed. But that's not the real question. The real question is WILL there be?

There is very little political will to make it happen. People just don't give a damn any more. Deep State actors are fine shoving this all under a rug of misdirection and blame-games because it draws out the process past the point where anyone wants to deal with it any longer.

9 of those 12 people, including the NYPD officers, are dead now.

When the investigations are done I think it will all be revealed. But if you go back to FISC Judge Rosemary Collyer's finding in 2017 in response to Admiral Rogers shutting down the FISA 702 process she found widespread abuse of the process going back to at least 2012 and that's why he shutdown the process.

That was the entire reason for the Carter Page FISA in the first place, the FBI and it's private contractors no longer had access to use the NSA database to spy.

In her report she found that full 85% of all 702 searches were illegal. There were thousands of requests over that time period, you can do the math.

Yes, he was. If you recall, Weiner became a bit of a cable news star guest promoting Obamacare. He ran for NYC mayor and likely had aspirations of even higher office. He was obviously approved by the Clinton as Hillary's long time "like a second daughter" aide Huma married him w/Bill officiating the ceremony.

The thing is, the Clintons have surrounded themselves with weirdos (the Podestas, David Brock, Blumenthal, etc.)-- Weiner just had the bad sense to get arrested.

428 MSNBC: It Is Highly Likely Biden Will Not Run For a Second Term

Has Biden actually started running for a First Term yet? I'm having a hard time telling the difference between Biden running for president and an old guy just wandering around his house.

429 "There must be, agreed. But that's not the real question. The real question is WILL there be?"

I think the real question is Who, not If. I mean, no offense, but we all want Someone Else to do something, myself included. Right? Everyone has families and careers they don't want to put at risk, or put on hold while they try brainstorm outside the box ideas.

But I wager that if our families and careers were more directly threatened, we would find a way, no matter what it took, ranging from the legal to extra-legal. Some might run for Congress, some might sell grandpa's farm to form a PAC, some might recognize their company's electronics or chemicals are dual use.

I think 20 years from now we will be at point where we WOULD go so far as to form STA Teams to eradicate the corruption, we will discover it's too, they've grown too powerful and our defeat inevitable.

So we have a window of opportunity. I say that it has arrived, but I don't stay open long. We need to find the will to act.

OR find an entertaining hobby and retreat into a private life of intellectual pursuits, ignoring the screams of our neighbors when they are taken in night.

Because otherwise, we are just wasting our time. You mentioned fatigue. I avoid watching some news, because I know it will only radicalize me more.

Plus, I think Seth Hanlon of the Center for American Progress has his math off. He says a couple earning $275,400 would receive $10,534 in benefits over 6 months. But earlier, the story says the rate the employee pays is .0765. That's $21,068, and $1,530 for the $20K worker. The story quotes him as saying the numbers are exactly half that.

The media expects people not to do the arithmetic. "Ten thousand versus $765?! Outrage!"

Comey and Brennan need to go down as they were the heads of their respectivee Dept. and were complicit in what happened regardless of who did what.

Rice should never work in DC again except for a lawyer or party org.

Yates should be fired because she had knowledge that she knew of an illegal scheme being perpetrated. (I don't know who she should've reported this to tho.)

It's possible they were threatened with their jobs/retirement.

Everything was compartmentalized with a very small group at the FBI and DOJ. The entire investigation was run from HQ in DC which was highly irregular and it was done that way to keep people from knowing what was going on.

I'm sure there were plenty of people with concerns, some people that John Solomon believe were from the Intel Community warned him what happened back in late 2016, early 2017, but they didn't know the details.

Not likely. Inflation is a real possibility and a likelihood if they keep going, but hyperinflation is not a monetary phenomenon. Inflation is, even robust inflation is, but hyperinflation is a political phenomenon. Hyperinflation happens when confidence in the political system associated with a currency goes under. The currency itself is a reflection of the state that mints and prints it. As long as people have some confidence that the entire system isn't flying apart like a runaway centrifuge, hyperinflation won't happen.

Yes. A thousand times yes.

506 Comey does not strike me as someone who will be willing to take one for the team.

Every illegal thing these people did to get Trump was well-practiced and familiar due to decades of doing it to other people. He was just the most audacious target they'd gone after.

Obama wasn't the prime prime mover. That would be The International Communist Party, allied with Iran, China, etc.

511 Written a few times that until someone pays for insurrection, everyone involved is sure no one will be.

512 > Am I the only one here who thinks Obama isn't bright enough to dream up any of this chicanery ... but Valerie Jarrett is?



Nope, you're not. Gaylord is a deeply stupid man. - posted by Rodrigo Borgia
==================================
Barry's a slipstreamer. He was a Chosen Man. A lot of effort by several ruthless, well-financed people made it possible for Barry to reach the Oval Office with very little effort on Obama's part. Valerie Jarrett was in place to make sure he didn't screw it up too much during his two terms. Jarrett was the housekeeper. The people who did the heavy lifting before the 2008 election were the smart ones.

Having a job with a paycheck that is critical to the survivability of you family makes you vulnerable, particularly in a cancel culture. Very few people have resources to fall back on a sent that pay check!

Absolutely.

Especially if you put twenty plus years in and they threaten your pension.

Seriously.

Crenshaw is damaged goods.

515 A strategy to charge all of these POS's is conspiracy but unless the Fed Code has changed--it may have--there is no conspiracy felony count.
18 USC 2 Principals--in essence you are either in on the deal(plot) (coup) or you are not.

Regardless , good lawyering and years to backstroke, cover up and rehearse, rehearse , rehearse and collaborate, it may be best to find a way to put forward a Conspiracy type charge. Dont see any of these assholes taking a direct Hit--certainly none of the higher ups.
The shit monkeys are on their own

519 People do put themselves on the line for job loss for less. Some just to stand up to ten thugs.
What a job loss compared to the country

As long as we're dreaming

521 Comey is not "of DC"; therefore he is the designated fall guy.

Military folks understand this.

Posted by: Jeff Weimer at August 05, 2020 04:46 PM (fpng3)

522 They are all extremely dirty, nasty people. But you know what? I will accept Comey taking all the blame, that sanctimonious asshole. As long as SOMEONE takes the fucking fall.

And, let's be real, Comey could have shut this shit down at ANY TIME. he could have just said "that's not what the FBI is for, and not what the FBI does." So whether he instigated it or not, he still had an obligation to stand athwart it.

524 Listened till the end. Graham's closing is also good. Testimony continues with underlings to find out who knew what when regarding the phony Steele dossier.

Posted by: Scoob at August 05, 2020 05:39 PM (uz9Qm)

525 So just what are they going to do with Comey?

Set him up on a charity dunk tank at an elementary school somewhere?

526 Way late here but: NONE OF THIS HAPPENS WITHOUT OBAMA'S CONSENT AND APPROVAL.

N.O.N.E. O.F. I.T.

527 How is it a surprise to any one that Obama spied on the opposition. Does anyone remember that first Senate race where he managed to unseal sealed divorce proceedings and passed them on to his pet reporters? The old saying is that a 'leopard can't change it's spots' is right on with the Black Jesus.

528 Sally Yates kicked off every bit of The Resistance when she defied Trump's EO. And it sounded like Lindsey Graham was leading the witness with a pre-arranged out: Comey went rogue. Graham's so deep into this shit that he's covering for Yates lest she out HIM.
