People warned Donald Trump about Robert “the Fixer” Mueller. They said Trump’s testimony to Mueller put the president in the perjury trap.
After all, Mueller got General Michael Flynn on a technicality. Because Mueller is wily. Perhaps. But he’s not smarter than President Trump.
Trump sent his responses, now what? Spoiler alert: Now nothing! The reason is simple. Trump didn’t lie. Further, he doesn’t take sh*t from low-lifes like Mueller.
But things are very different for disgraced former FBI Director James Comey. He cannot avoid the perjury trap, because he is a liar. And you can bet that during his “Lie-A-Palooza”, Republicans were ready to spring the traps.
Did SCOTUS make the right decision on medical mandates for large businesses?
Here’s how it went down according to the New York Post:
Former FBI Director James Comey arrived on Capitol Hill Friday morning for a grilling before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees.
During the closed-door hearing, GOP members were expected to focus on how FBI and Justice Department handled the Hillary Clinton email probe and launch of the Russia investigation surrounding President Trump.
“I’ve got lots of questions,” said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) as he walked into the hearing room.
The interview comes as GOP lawmakers are wrapping up a yearlong investigation into decisions made at the Justice Department during the 2016 presidential election.
Republicans argue that department officials were biased against Trump as they started an investigation into his campaign’s ties with Russia and cleared Clinton in a separate investigation into her email use.
Comey no longer flies under the radar, because he has no protection.
His former agency has been dismantled. And though some Comey-loving Leftist swamp rats remain, not enough to do his dirty work. Further, you can bet these vermin now keeps their heads low, lest they suffer the same fate as their former leader.
Also, Comey lost his coverage from Mueller. In fact Mueller falls under as much scrutiny as Comey at this point. Even some Democrats question his tactics and motives. The ultimate fixer blew it.
With Obama gone, the infrastructure of the Deep State is of little use. And with Hillary Clinton sitting in the bleachers, she has no chance of getting in the game.
In short, Comey is a man on an island. But before his ship was set sail by President Trump, Comey had said a lot. And it’s those words that will haunt him.
The investigation that dragged out in order to drown Trump and his administration grew legs. However, now the sunlight shines on the real criminals. And Comey is only the beginning.
Don’t forget the other players who performed. Andrew McCabe for starters. Anybody think he’s just a bit curious as to Comey’s closed-door testimony?
Peter Strzok. Think he acted alone? His text messages indicate that he didn’t.
Lisa Page has already testified to much. And there are many others.
What did Comey not know they had when he walked into the perjury trap?
With the case now migrating to Democrats like the Podesta brothers, there are new developments. One that involves both Comey and Mueller involves HSBC.
Understand that Robert Swan Mueller III was FBI Director from 2001 to 2013.
Jim Comey is named to Bill Browder’s Board of Directors of Hermitage Capital Management (HSBC). Browder is the founder and CEO of HSBC. An interesting aside, Browder is wanted in Russia for tax evasion. And Russian President Vladimir Putin contends that Browder donated $400 million to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Comey goes to HSBC
In 2012, the largest bank of England, HSBC Holdings, was deep into a scandal.
Investigations by federal authorities and law enforcement had revealed that for years HSBC had been laundering billions of dollars for Mexican Drug Cartels, channeling money for Saudi banks who were financing terror, moving money for Iran in violation of the sanctions, and other major criminal activity. HSBC’s criminality was pervasive and deliberate by the bank and its officials.
HSBC was a huge Clinton Foundation contributor (many millions) throughout the “investigation” and Bill Clinton was being paid large personal fees for speaking at HSBC events (while Hillary was Sec of State). Eric Holder and the Obama Justice Department did what they were paid to do, and let HSBC off of the hook for a paltry 1.2 billion dollar fine (paid by its stockholders).
Not one director, officer or management member at HSBC was fired or charged with any criminal. Exactly when everyone involved with HSBC Bank (including the Clintons and all of their “donors”) were being let off without penalty, and cover had to be provided to HSBC, Comey was appointed as a director and member of the Board of HSBC (in the middle of the fallout from the scandal).
Comey was part of the effort to cover up the scandal and make HSBC “respectable” again.
Here’s a bit more detail about the scandal:
The 2012 Department of Justice settlement with international bank HSBC over hundreds of millions of dollars in criminal money-laundering for drug cartels and terrorist groups.
The settlement was announced in a Department of Justice press release dated Dec. 11, 2012. In the deferred prosecution agreement, HSBC admitted criminal violations of the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), and the Trading with the Enemy Act (TWEA).
They stipulated to money-laundering at least $881 million through the U.S. financial system. Next, they admitted to laundering an unspecified amount of money from sanctioned countries including Iran, Cuba, Sudan, Libya, and Burma.
In exchange for the Department of Justice agreeing not to file criminal indictments against HSBC’s directors, officers, or employees, HSBC agreed to pay $1.256 billion as part of the deferred prosecution agreement. They incurred another $665 million in civil penalties.
The previous article now continues and explains the hand-off from Mueller to Comey:
Comey appointed to the FBI with no experience in law enforcement
After about a year as HSBC director, despite his lack of any law enforcement experience, no DOJ leadership experience, and no qualifications for the job, Comey was appointed FBI director by Obama. The only qualification Comey had was that the Clintons and their cronies knew Comey was in bed with them, was compromised, and was willing to do their dirty work.
Comey was appointed to the FBI right when Hillary was leaving the State Department, and was vulnerable to the FBI because she had been using a private server, mishandling classified information, selling access to favors/contracts from the State Department to Clinton Foundation donors (including Comey’s Lockheed Martin), and much more. Remember that this was about the time the Inspector General of the State Department found over 2 billion “missing” from the State Department finances during Hillary’s tenure.
The obvious conclusion is that Comey was appointed to the FBI (along with other reliable Clinton-Obama cronies) to run interference for the Clintons and Obamas at the nation’s federal law enforcement agency (in conjunction with a corrupt Department of Justice). Comey was and is owned by the Clintons. He owed all of his power and wealth to being part of their machine and providing them with cover.
I can only imagine the dossier Rep Jim Jordan had on Comey going into this meeting. So I anxiously await the transcript.
And you will know how bad things are by the spin of the Left.
