Comey Fired By Trump After Asking For Resources to Expand Russia Investigation

10 May

Definitely a cover-up. Comey was fired because he had evidence of the Chumph’s collusion with the Russians.

Comey sought more resources for Russia probe days before he was fired by President Trump, officials say

Last week, then-FBI Director James B. Comey requested more resources from the Justice Department for his bureau’s investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, according to two officials with knowledge of the discussion.

Comey, who was fired by President Trump on Tuesday, made the request in a meeting last week with Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, and briefed the chair and Democratic ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Monday, the officials said.

However, Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said reports that Comey had requested more funding or other resources for the Russia investigation are “totally false.” Such a request, she said, “did not happen.”

Rosenstein wrote the memo that was used to justify Trump’s swift and unexpected firing of Comey on Tuesday evening.

Asked by reporters Wednesday whether she was briefed by Comey on requests for additional funding for the investigation, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), a member of the Intelligence Committee, said: “I was not. But I understand that there have been additional requests. That’s all I can say.”

It’s unclear where the FBI investigation stands. Comey acknowledged publicly in March that the FBI was looking into possible coordination between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign, and he said the investigation had begun in late July. Comey said that for a counterintelligence probe, “that’s a fairly short period of time.”

Last summer, the FBI obtained a secret court order to monitor the communications of Carter Page, who was an early adviser to the Trump campaign, as part of its investigation. Page has not been accused of any crimes, and it is unclear whether the Justice Department will eventually seek charges against him or others in connection with Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.

Law enforcement officials are also examining contacts between former national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian officials.

      Crying and whining ain’t going to help you.

      The reason the investigation needed more resources is the treason is much bigger than just the Chumph and his Campaign Staff made up of Putin’s bois.

      The only reason the Chumph isn’t in an orange jumpsuit already, waiting for the Hangman is steadfast resistance by certain Republicans.

      The reason for that is we know about 40 Republicans made use of the Russian Spy Agency’s services during the last election. So…The subjects of the investigation go far beyond the Chump cronies. Such as…Did Chumph’s Campaign committee offer that as a “service” and coordinate it with the Russians?

      And about that Chumph and Putin never having a conversation…

      The next large crowd you see in front of the Whites Only House… May well be a lynch mob.

      Buy lots of Kleenex for the weeping.
