Comey leaks

Former FBI Director James Comey testifies. Admits he leaked his memo summarizing his conversation with Donald Trump through a friend to the NY Times, in hopes of getting a special prosecutor. Is this a violation of his employment agreement and a violation of 18 USC 641 which restricts public officials from appropriating government property.

Comey testified that he took notes of his meeting with Trump but no other president he had ever met with because he thought Trump as a liar.

Trump hopes

Comey claimed that when Trump said “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go,’ he took it as an order even though he said hope. Rather than interpreting it as an order immediately and telling the President that such comments are inappropriate and perhaps criminal, or asking the President for clarification, Comey responded by saying “I agree, Flynn is a good guy.

Director Comey notified no one outside his department of his conversation with Trump and did nothing until after he got fired. His response was to have a friend leak his memo to the NY Times.

Comey Sits

If Director Comey believed Trump had committed a crime in attempting to obstruct justice, he had an obligation to report it. He didn’t. Further, when asked in congressional testimony last month (after his meeting with Trump) if he had ever been asked to stop an investigation he said it had not happened, indicating that Comey created the obstruction narrative after he got fired. Comey also noted that “in theory” the Justice Department can ask the FBI to halt an investigations.

Left wing Attorney Alan Dershowitz made the point that the President is within his Constitutional rights to DIRECT, not hope, that the FBI drop a case. Indeed, Dershowitz made the point that the President could have told Comey to stop the investigation because he was going to pardon Flynn and gave examples of other Presidents taking similar actions.

Comey Cowers

Democratic Senator Feinstein asked Director Comey But why didn’t you stop and say, ‘Mr. President, this is wrong – I cannot discuss that with you’?”. Comey responded by saying, “That is a good question, Maybe if I were stronger, I would have,” “I was so stunned by the conversation that I just took it in.”

And did nothing.

The head of the FBI was stunned that a crime in his mind MAY have been committed and became paralyzed that he could not do his job! He clearly did not do or understand his job.

Another Senator asked him if Trump ordered him to stop the investigation and Comey responded- not in words.

It seems Comey WANTED to entrap the President by leaking the memo. Also Comey had refused to publicly state that the President was not under investigation (allowing the media to continue to speculate that he was), highlighting his intent to bring the President down.

Comey Volunteers that Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch Interfered in the Hillary Clinton “Matter”

Comey – Loretta lynch asked me to not call the Hillary Clinton crimminal investigation an investigation – She said just call it a matter. Comey did not report this direct order to anyone.

What is a bubble?

Something that goes up too fast too soon? Something that won’t stop rising? Something that rises without basis? Something that rises seemingly in a manner different than other assets that have risen? How long do bubbles last? Can one profit from a bubble?

Not everything that goes straight up is in a bubble.

Bubbles burst as there is little or no underlying value. Assets that are the real deal that rise too high to fast correct, but rise again.
