House Oversight Committee Chairman Says He Wants Alleged Comey Memo on Trump

BUT AP REPORTS “COPIES” REQUESTED

by Sharon Rondeau

(May 16, 2017) — Following the publication of a New York Times story on Tuesday evening claiming to outline a portion of a purported memo allegedly written by former FBI Director James B. Comey, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Jason Chaffetz, tweeted that the committee would “get the memo, if it exists.”

Approximately an hour later, the Associated Press tweeted that Chaffetz would “seek copies of former FBI director memos: ‘My subpoena pen ready.'”

Chaffetz said nothing about “copies,” which The Post & Email tweeted to the AP.

We did not see our tweet appear in the AP’s timeline.

The alleged memo was said by Michael S. Schmidt of The New York Times to contain a passage written by Comey detailing a meeting he had with President Donald Trump on February 14, 2017 in which Trump allegedly asked Comey to abandon an investigation launched into his former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn.

Flynn was forced to resign after an illegal leak of his name to The Times and The Washington Post demonstrated that his version of conversations he had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak was different from that which was captured by the National Security Agency (NSA) in its surveillance of Kislyak.

Trump tweeted on Tuesday that he had asked Comey to investigate the source of that and other intelligence leaks which some believe were made for political reasons.  It appears that Trump was frustrated at what he saw as Comey’s lack of cooperation on that front.

It was reported last week that a federal grand jury in Virginia issued subpoenas to Flynn’s business associates to gather information about Flynn’s dealings with Russia and alleged Russian “meddling” in the 2016 U.S. electoral process.

The media is now shaping a narrative that Trump obstructed justice, with Democrats beginning to call for a “special prosecutor” to probe the latest news.

Democrats have also insisted that a special prosecutor be appointed to the investigation to whose existence Comey had affirmatively testified on May 3 into allegations that Trump campaign aides had improper ties with the Russian government during the campaign.

Trump has made clear that he believes the Russia investigation is pointless, calling it a “witch hunt.”

Last Thursday, now-interim FBI Director Andrew McCabe testified that he knew of no attempts by the White House to obstruct the Russia investigation.

Schmidt accurately reported that the Flynn investigation is separate, although it is part of the larger allegations of “collusion” with the Russians to win the White House for Trump.  “The existence of Mr. Trump’s request is the clearest evidence that the president has tried to directly influence the Justice Department and F.B.I. investigation into links between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia,” Schmit wrote.

Schmidt also admitted to not having seen the alleged memo, reporting that “parts of the memo” were read to a different NYT reporter.

The Post & Email does not report on any alleged documents without having seen them and obtained them directly from the source.

In 1990, the AP reported that Barack Hussein Obama’s father attended Oxford University in the UK, completely excising the part of his history when he allegedly met Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, at the University of Hawaii.

When questioned by this writer about the discrepancy in its report and those typically found in print about Obama’s life story, the AP offered no explanation.

Among many other outlets, the AP avoided the findings of a five-year criminal investigation indicating that the long-form birth certificate image posted on the White House website bearing Obama’s name is a “computer-generated forgery.”

It is this writer’s observation that the mainstream media is conducting a systematic and coordinated effort to force Trump to resign or compel the House to commence impeachment proceedings amidst the appearance of illegalities.  Those participating appear to be NBC, MSNBC, the Associated Press, BuzzFeed News, CNN, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Newsweek, TIME, Politico and others.

Trump was the first high-profile person to raise questions about Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president, although many Americans had attempted to compel Congress to vet Obama before approving the Electoral College votes in January 2009 and again in January 2013.

Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form were both found to be fraudulent in 2012. According to the former detective who conducted the probe at a final press conference given in December, two forensic specialists reached similar conclusions about the birth certificate image posted at whitehouse.gov bearing Obama’s name and which Obama claimed as his own on April 27, 2011.

While the birth certificate image was described as a “computer-generated forgery,” investigator Mike Zullo said that Obama’s Selective Service form is a “hard-copy forgery.”

The media did nothing.

    If the FBI had looked at the Montgomery tapes and determined they were fake, it would have been headline news, both 2 years ago and again now as the subject of surveillance and “unmasking” is in the news..

    Or the FBI looked at Montgomery’s hard drives and like Thomas Drake (ex-computer expert for the NSA) determined that they were fake.

    The hard drives containing evidence of massive spying, 47 of them, were given to the FBI more than 2 years ago. The reason was so the FBI could verify their validity and then act accordingly. Instead, there has been no known action and nothing but silence from the FBI on this evidence. It is my opinion the FBI quickly determined the evidence was valid, and that was when the decision to, “sit it on”, reporting nothing for over 2 years, was made.

    This is like turning over information on Obama’s forged birth certificate and other information on his identity fraud and ineligibility to any federal agency…..they will do nothing because they already know Obama is a usurper and that must never be officially and openly revealed…….and acted on.

    Mike Zullo says that he cannot evaluate Dennis Montgomery’s data because Zullo has never seen it: http://carlgallups.blogspot.com/2017/05/statement-from-mike-zullo-on.html
