Former FBI Director James Comey exposed his weakness and incompetence during a riveting 2 hour testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee today. Most political analysts agree that President Trump was exonerated, thanks to Comey’s testimony today.
Comey repeated the words “I could be wrong” at least 27 times during his testimony. “I could be wrong” he said when asked to explain whether he believed the president ordered him to end the Flynn investigation.
When asked why he didn’t immediately take action if he thought President Trump was breaking the law, he paused, then said, “I don’t know.”
Comey confirmed he told President Trump he was not under investigation and he said Trump never asked him about Flynn again after their meeting in the Oval Office in February.
The former director did more to harm his credibility when he admitted to possibly jeopardizing the ongoing Russia investigation by giving classified documents (his notes) to a University professor to leak to the NY Times.
While trying to drag down President Trump, Comey cast suspicion on former President Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch when he said she told him to call the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server a “matter” and not an investigation.
“[A]t one point the attorney general had directed me not to call it an investigation but instead to call it matter, which confused me and concerned me,” he told the Committee members.
He also said Lynch’s meeting with Bill Clinton on his private jet was the reason why Comey decided to give his public statement when the FBI decided not to prosecute Hillary Clinton (if that makes any sense).
