Fitton: Andrew McCabe Report Shows Obstruction Probe Against Trump Is 'Dead'

Reuters: Highlights from James Comey's new book - "A searing memoir by former FBI Director James Comey, who was sacked last May by U.S. President Donald Trump, is due to be published next week".

Fondacaro is absolutely right when he says the reason for the media love affair with Comey is their "mutual target": Donald Trump.

Comey held a televised press briefing in July 2016 to announce the Department of Justice was not recommending charges against Clinton, and generated more controversy when he sent a letter to Capitol Hill saying the Federal Bureau of Investigation was reviewing more of her emails - a move Clinton and her allies say helped swing the election to Trump. "Disgruntled, he, (former Deputy FBI Director Andrew) McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!"

"Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers".

"This is not some tin-pot dictatorship where the leader of the country gets to say, 'The people I don't like go to jail, '" Comey told NPR in the latest in a series of interviews to promote his new book.

The incident happened about 7:15 a.m.as students were arriving for class, Watkins told the Star Tribune of Minneapolis. School officials say they will work with the family of the attacker and law enforcement in dealing with the incident.

In his upcoming memoir "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership", Comey details his interactions with Trump before he was sacked.

While ABC aired one hour of its conversation with Comey, it had conducted a five-hour interview with him, a transcript of which was obtained by The New York Times.

Longtime Hillary Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill delivered an unsparing Twitter diatribe against Comey ahead of the release of "A Higher Loyalty".

"Most important, the president of the United States is calling for the imprisonment of a private citizen, as he's done for a whole lot of people who criticize him".

Democrats will probably go to their graves believing that Comey's re-opening of the email investigation 11 days out cost Clinton the election.

Warm Friday with rain heading this way
Due to more dry and windy conditions, fire danger will be high today , prompting a red flag warning for much of Texoma until 9pm. On the northern side, heavy snow will continue from Wisconsin to MI , with icy conditions reaching all the way to New England.

Trump on Sunday pushed back again against Comey's claims that Trump sought his loyalty, saying, "I hardly even knew this guy". He said his belief that Clinton would win the 2016 election was probably a factor in his decision to talk about the investigation. The book also offers Comey's version of a private discussion with Trump about former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn.

In the interview, Mr Comey said that it is "possible, but I don't know" whether Russian Federation has evidence to back allegations about Mr Trump's Moscow trip. Special counsel Robert Mueller has been smart enough to keep his own mouth shut: He hasn't said one word for or against Trump in public.

"I think that in the case of Comey, in particular, he did not want Trump to be president, and so, there may have been some bias".

To start with, Comey has strayed too far into barely concealed hatred and mockery, commenting on Trump's hair, skin tone, hand size and so on. "That she's going to be elected president, and if I hide this from the American people, she'll be illegitimate the moment she's elected, the moment this comes out". "And so I choose to see the opportunity in a forest fire because what forest fires do is allow things to grow that never could've grown". Comey said Trump's actions "tainted an institution that pursues the truth". And he added there is, in his words, "some evidence of obstruction of justice". It's unusual that he's going on a book tour to trash the president of the US.
