Republicans have busted fired FBI Director James Comey in a bold-faced lie regarding former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn, as House of Representatives lawmakers have him quoted verbatim on record, according to Townhall.
In recent months, Comey has been on a book tour. During several appearances on cable news shows, Comey made two major claims that are completely untrue: he claimed he didn’t know which FBI official interviewed Flynn at the White House last year, or who funded the anti-Trump dossier.
Ironically enough, both of these claims were exposed during Comey’s interview on Fox News with anchor Bret Baier. On Fox, Comey denies knowing who interrogated Flynn at the White House and who funded the dossier, which served as the basis for triggering the Russia investigation.
A week after Comey’s admission on Fox, the House Intelligence Committee released a report directly contradicting both claims made by the former director.
As previously reported by Conservative Daily Post, Comey told House lawmakers in March 2017 that FBI agents who spoke with Flynn didn’t believe he ever lied to the bureau.
On Jan. 24, 2017, Comey dispatched agents to the White House to speak with Flynn about whether he had lied about contacts with Russian government officials. Comey told lawmakers the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn did not believe he ever lied to them.
The agents, including Comey, left the Jan. 24 interview confident Flynn wouldn’t be charged with a crime and that he never divulged classified information to the Russians.
Guess who the agent was who interviewed Flynn? Peter Strzok, the former No. 2 counterintelligence agent who was exposed for sending countless text messages on his government phone insulting and disparaging President Donald Trump.
There’s lie number one. On lie number two, Comey claims he had no idea who funded the dossier.
As Conservative Daily Post has reported on extensively, Hillary Clinton‘s 2016 campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid Fusion GPS $9 million to fund Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled the dossier.
Comey’s FBI used the Clinton-funded dossier to trigger the Russia investigation. Comey told Baier during the interview that he didn’t know who funded the dossier.
So he’s either so incompetent that he approved and opened an investigation using a dossier that he never researched. Or, he lied about it and didn’t want the public to know he used a Clinton-funded hit piece to launch a phony investigation into Trump.
Comey is a bold-faced liar, and republicans have him dead to rights.
