The latest Trump scandal the media has conjured up originates from the New York Times.
President Donald Trump is under fire after a New York Times report alleged he asked former FBI director James Comey to shut down the federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. A memo that Comey wrote following a meeting he had with Trump in February, noted that the president told him, “I hope you can let this go,” in regards to the Flynn investigation.
But did he really? Comey testified under oath earlier this month, and unless he was lying in response to a particular answer, Trump asked him no such thing.
Former FBI Director James Comey testified under Senate oath May 3rd that the Trump administration had not pressured his agency to halt any investigation for political purposes.
Comey admitted that the FBI has always been free to operate without political interference—flying in the face of Democrats’ paranoid delusions about Russia and President Donald J. Trump, and exposing for what it is a new political witch hunt Wednesday by enemies within the president’s own Justice Department.
Videotaped testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee blows apart the phony narrative New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt wove on Tuesday, which resulted in Mueller’s appointment. Schmidt’s only sources were anonymous. They claimed that on Feb. 14th, the day after National Security Adviser Michael Flynn resigned, Trump had asked Comey to end an investigation into Flynn’s connections to Russia.
