James Comey has tried to cash in on his time at the FBI as a sort of a justice department warrior.
He published a book, then went on a media tour proclaiming he had been wronged and after doing everything by the book and properly, he then got fired.
It is all lies.
Just Blatantly Lying
After Comey published his book, he did an interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier.
In that interview, Baier questioned Comey about the origins of the Steele dossier.
We know for a fact the work was initiated by the Washington Free Beacon, who had Glen Simpson, a co-founder of GPS Fusion, on retainer.
The Beacon eventually dropped the opposition report, which is when the DNC and Hillary Clinton picked up the tab to have the work completed.
When Baier asked Comey about that, he stated, “I still don’t know that for a fact.”
He later added, “I’ve only seen it in the media.
“I never knew exactly which Democrats had funded – I knew it was funded first by Republicans.”
The IG report stated that Comey had been informed of the DNC and Clinton ties to the dossier in October 2016, so that is lie number one.
Lie number two is in just how important the Steele Dossier was to the investigation.
Again, Baier asked Comey why this was used as a central part of the FISA warrant when Comey himself had debunked the dossier.
Comey stated, “That’s not my recollection, Bret. And I don’t know that the FISA application has been released.
“My recollection was it was part of a broader mosaic of facts that were laid before the FISA judge to obtain a FISA warrant.”
Again, completely not true.
According to the IG report, the Steele dossier was a central supporting document and the FISA warrant completely relied on the dossier to secure the warrant.
The part of the interview that addresses these issues starts right around the 8:00 mark…
How much more proof do we need to hold James Comey accountable?
He openly deceived the FISA court, then went on a public tour continuing to deceive the American people.
Virtually everything that has come out of this man’s mouth has been a lie for more than two years and the next time we hear him speak should be in front of a judge when he decides on whether or not to plead guilty or not guilty.
