A new report makes some deeply disturbing allegations against former FBI director James Comey and what he was up to in the weeks after the 2016 election.
The report is not from some fringe outlet, either. It’s a rock solid source.
It’s from Real Clear Investigations:
Justice Dept. Watchdog Has Evidence Comey Probed Trump, on the Sly
It is one of the most enduring and consequential mysteries of the Trump-Russia investigation: Why did former FBI Director James Comey refuse to say publicly what he was telling President Trump in private — that Trump was not the target of an ongoing probe?
That refusal ignited a chain of events that has consumed Washington for more than two years – including Comey’s firing by Trump, the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and ongoing claims that Trump obstructed justice.
Now an answer is emerging. Sources tell RealClearInvestigations that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz will soon file a report with evidence indicating that Comey was misleading the president.
Even as he repeatedly assured Trump that he was not a target, the former director was secretly trying to build a conspiracy case against the president, while at times acting as an investigative agent.
Two U.S. officials briefed on the inspector general’s investigation of possible FBI misconduct said Comey was essentially “running a covert operation against” the president, starting with a private “defensive briefing” he gave Trump just weeks before his inauguration.
They said Horowitz has examined high-level FBI text messages and other communications indicating Comey was actually conducting a “counterintelligence assessment” of Trump during that January 2017 meeting in New York.
This does not look good for Comey at all.
Guess who Buzzfeed hired to try and prove the Steele dossier wasn't complete garbage (spoiler alert: it was complete garbage)? The exact same FBI agent that James Comey planted in the White House to spy on Trump. https://t.co/VcfxDddiyM

Yet with all the evidence against him, Comey is still a free man while general Flynn fights for his freedom.

Seems to me the FBI is severely understaffed. The same 6 agents show up in every story. 🤷🏽♀️

That is rather curious, isn’t it?
