Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) on Saturday accused the FBI of launching an investigation into whether President Donald Trump was an asset of the Russian government to “avenge” the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.

James Comey: ‘There’s No Deep State’

NEW YORK — In testimony, former FBI Director James Comey exclaimed “there’s no deep state” before going on to suggest that workers risk their jobs by “speaking out” –purportedly against President Donald Trump. During testimony before the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees last week, Comey was asked by Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.) for suggestions on how the nation should get back “on track” after the “storm” it is currently weathering – a clear reference to Trump’s presidency. Comey responded by launching into mini-speech about the resilience…

James Comey Admits He Didn’t Tell Trump that Democrats Financed Dossier

NEW YORK — In testimony, James Comey admitted that when he infamously briefed then President-elect Donald Trump about the controversial dossier, Comey did not inform the incoming president about who financed the document. The detail, contained in a second round of Comey’s testimony released earlier this week, is particularly relevant since the embattled former FBI director admitted in testimony two weeks ago that he was aware the dossier authored by former British spy Christopher Steele was financed by Democrats who opposed Trump. Comey’s seeming withholding of information from Trump about…

FBI Email: James Comey Briefing Was ‘Trigger’ for CNN to Break Dossier Story

NEW YORK — An FBI email states that the “trigger” for CNN to first break the story revealing salacious and unsubstantiated claims made inside the infamous anti-Trump dossier was the leaking of ex-FBI Director James Comey’s official briefing on the dossier claims to President Donald Trump. CNN on January 10, 2017 was first to report leaked information that the contents of the dossier were presented during classified briefings one week earlier to Trump and then-President Barack Obama. Prior to CNN’s report leaking the briefings, which was picked up by news agencies worldwide,…

Robert Mueller Gives Michael Flynn’s ‘302’ to Judge; Agents Thought He Did Not Lie

Special Counsel Robert Mueller turned over the “302” interview report Friday that had been requested by U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan in Washington, DC, after Michael Flynn’s defense team claimed he was pressured not to bring a lawyer to his Jan. 24, 2017 interview with FBI agents. That interview formed the basis for prosecuting Flynn for the crime of lying to FBI, to which he pleaded guilty earlier this year, and which led to further investigations. In its filing, Mueller’s team urged the judge not to see the “circumstances”…

James Comey Denies Knowing Clinton Law Firm Helped with ‘Pee’ Dossier: ‘I Don’t Remember the Name Perkins Coie at All’

In what could become a possible issue for James Comey, the former FBI director repeatedly stated in testimony to the House Judiciary Committee that he “never” knew the author of the infamous anti-Trump dossier had been retained to do his work by a U.S.-based law firm. The law firm in question, Perkins Coie, reportedly funded the controversial Fusion GPS to conduct the anti-Trump work on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Those efforts resulted in the largely-discredited dossier written by former British spy…

James Comey: Firing Mueller Won’t End Russia Probe

Former FBI Director James Comey told House investigators in a closed-door interview Friday that he does not believe firing special counsel Robert Mueller would bring an end to the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential election. “You’d almost have to fire everyone in the FBI and the Justice Department to derail the relevant investigations,” Comey replied when asked by Democrat lawmakers whether Mueller’s ouster would halt the Russia probe and other special counsel-related investigations. The committee interviewed Comey as part of its investigation into…
