Comey Hill Show!

James Comey, the soon to be former FBI director, at least in this writer’s opinion, performed (pun intended) a 5 hour long show hearing before the House Intelligence Panel on Monday during which he said, among many other things, that Russians themselves believed that Donald Trump doesn’t stand a chance in the presidential elections.

Basically, the Russians were duped by the fake-news stories and fake polls purported by the mainstream media just like the Democrats were. Even if it’s not very clear (nor he explained or was asked) how the FBI knew what the ruskies were thinking about Donald Trump’s chances in August-September of 2016, Comey said:

Late in the summer they concluded based on the polling that a lot of people were reading that Mr. Trump didn’t stand a chance,”

Then, Comey went on to saying that the Russians decided to undermine Hillary Clinton’s chances anyway, just for the heck of it, which is very confusing, as prior to saying that, FBI’s director declared that “we saw no efforts aimed at the vote itself.”

Moving along with the show, Comey rebutted President Trump’s tweet  regarding Russia’s meddling in the 2016 elections:



Comey’s answer when pressed by Jim Himes about President Trump’s tweet was a non answer:

We’ve offered no opinion, have no view and have no information on potential impact because it’s never something we looked at.”

However, FBI’s director contradicted himself again soon after, as he said:

we saw efforts to penetrate the voter registration databases.”



This guy ranted for 5 hours in a row yet he presented absolutely no facts while he made tons of extrapolations, basically redefining the concept of conspiracy theory. Comey also said that the FBI is still investigating a Russian connection with regard to Trump’s 2016 campaign:
