Comey said there has not been any political pressure to halt an investigation:
…oftentimes they give us opinions that we don’t see a case there and so you ought to stop investing resources in it. But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal.
It’s not happened in my experience.
That 44 seconds of video is absolutely lethal for the Left. God really hates Leftists. He has made them too insane to even check their basic stories any more before they start spewing them.
I mean think about it; all the Washington Post et al had to do before they started spewing their latest narrative was check their archives for any Comey quotes that might refute it. They were too lazy and stupid to even do that! And they’re ostensibly a news organization, for fuck’s sake! How hard can it be!? Checking that sort of thing is supposed to be part of their core skill set! And they can’t even do that, and they didn’t predict they’d get their asses handed to them by the distributed information militia on the Net. Man, the Old Media is lame.
Now the question he’s responding to in the clip is about pressure from the Department of Justice. But if he’d gotten pressure from the White House, Comey would have taken that opportunity to mention it. He wouldn’t have just it slide.
Nope, nada, nothing. It was a perfect opportunity to say so if he were feeling pressure from any quarter, but he had nothing to say.
So the Left’s latest anti-Trump narrative is done.
You might say, “But the media is so cynical they don’t care whether it’s true or not; they’ll just bury this story.”
Of course they will! But what’s their endgame here? Remember, all this Russia/Comey crap is a desperate Hail Mary pass by the Left to try to get the T-Dawg impeached and removed from office. Snort. No, it’s not going to get anywhere near happening, but the point is, they’re desperately hoping it will. But even in their lunatic fantasy scenario in which impeachment proceedings occur (seriously, what planet are these people living on?), that involves a lot of procedure and testimony and digging up evidence.
So then this videoclip would spread and every non-cuck GOP Senator and member of the House, and Fox News, and every right-wing (or indeed, sane) person on the Net would be shouting this piece of testimony from the rooftops. The President, in making his defense, would of course play this video, or have his lawyers play it, before Congress. He might even tweet it to the world. This impeachment crap is even more of a non-starter than we thought it was. There’s simply nowhere to go when the star, lynchpin witness for the prosecution is on video saying, “The defendant didn’t do it.”
Thank God the Left is so stupid, impatient, and impulsive. How were these assclowns winning for 50 years? Oh, right, we hadn’t started fighting yet. We get one major victory – the election of Trump – and they lose their last fingernail grip on sanity. Sad!
