Comey or McCabe Lied
 
It's probably McCabe, but there a 100% chance at least one of them lied ...:yes :mad

Here's Comey's testimony, reported in May, 2017...

Quote:

GRASSLEY: And thank you for your opening statement. I'm going to start out probably with a couple subjects you wish I didn't bring up, and then a third one that I think everybody needs to hear your opinion on on a policy issue. It is frustrating when the FBI refuses to answer this committee's questions, but leaks relevant information to the media. In other words, they don't talk to us, but somebody talks to the media.

Director Comey, have you ever been an anonymous source in news reports about matters relating to the Trump investigation or the Clinton investigation?

COMEY: Never.

GRASSLEY: Question two, relatively related, have you ever authorized someone else at the FBI to be an anonymous source in news reports about the Trump investigation or the Clinton investigation?

COMEY:No.

GRASSLEY: Has any classified information relating to President Trump or his association — associates been declassified and shared with the media?

COMEY: Not to my knowledge.
Now here's McCabe's statement after his firing...

Quote:

The OIG investigation has focused on information I chose to share with a reporter through my public affairs officer and a legal counselor. As Deputy Director, I was one of only a few people who had the authority to do that. It was not a secret, it took place over several days, and others, including the Director, were aware of the interaction with the reporter.

You do have a small tiny point here.

I would argue that there is a difference between “authorizing” something, as he testified, and being “aware” of it as McCabe said.

But its thin. And there needs to be some clarification.

As for the second point, unless you know something I don't, the information that McCabe says he shared with media sources was in regards to the investigation into the clinton foundation. Not about trump or his associates etc.

The blind lady of justice cannot keep dirty fingers of her scale.

Comey got fired for allowing politics into his work.

Martha Stewart went to prison for a year because she lied to the FBI

Flynn is a convicted felon for lying about doing something legal.

McCabe is lucky. He simply got fired for lying about doing something that was illegal. He got off easy,,,,; so far.

James Brennan is a Charter member of the Deep State, never Trumper's. His comments today," "When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America ... America will triumph over you," Brennan tweeted.

What a turd.

The Swamp Creatures on both sides of the aisle are desperate in their fight to survive and keep the Status QUO. This is what our duly elected President must endure daily whilst trying to complete his Constitutional obligations for WE THE PEOPLE. Thankfully, he is up to the task.

Brennan likely committed felonies himself. He should be careful what bears are awakened by his vile rhetoric.

Former Asst. FBI Director: Brennan and Obama were Committing Felonies... Not General Flynn (VIDEO)

Hopefully, his colleagues may also suffer for their crimes.

I'm not going to hold my breath that any of these people will ever be held accountable for their crimes beyond a loss of employment. The corruption in that town runs too deep for anyone without their own skeletons to do anything about it.

A part of why there's no accountability is the lack of the media demanding answers...

See anyone in the media getting an interview or asking questions to kicked-off-the-Trump-investigation FBI agent Peter Strzok?...

His love interest and FBI lawyer whom he exchanged anti-Trump text messages Lisa Page?...

Demoted ex-associate attorney general Daniel Ohr?...

Daniel Ohr's wife, Nellie, who worked for Fusion GPS?...

Nope...:no :mad

The Mueller investigation leaks like a sieve with "anonymous sources" and "unnamed officials" when it puts someone six degrees away from Trump in a negative light and the media makes sure it hits the front pages in 20 seconds, but these four people have entered the media's witness protection program...:mad

Seems that (much) of the press has chosen to abridge itself.
Sad.

The press is afforded special protection by the Constitution because they are expected to be the "watchdog" of the people. For this privilege, they are expected to be cautious and critical of all politicals and distrustful of the government.

As should every American. Here it is not treasonous, unpatriotic or anti loyal to question and doubt the actions of our government. It is, in fact, our sacred duty. We should be able to count the media and the press to be on the side of the people in that skepticism and tension with our leaders.

Does anyone else feel that way today?

.......according to the Founder's, you should.

It is not the function of our Government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the Government from falling into error.

McCabe is one of those nasty career persons in our government who got caught breaking the rules and the people's trust. He has now paid for it.

Our country could use more men and women like that.:thumbsup

The question was about being an anonymous source for news reports and McCabe, while he did discuss information with a reporter, it was not for publication so it wasn't an anonymous source for news reporting. Comey's testimony was before he was fired, before his memos were released to the press, and even Comey's memos after he was fired by Trump for continuing the Russia investigation into Michael Flynn weren't about the Russia investigation or Clinton emails, they related to concerns Comey had about obstruction of justice by President Trump.

Sorry, I don't see a lie by either Comey or McCabe related to the Russia investigation or the Clinton emails because they weren't anonymous sources for news reports on either.
