James Comey Says Trump Wanted FBI to Prove Alleged “Pee Tape” Doesn’t Exist

Former FBI Director James Comey said this week that President Donald Trump told him he was never involved with hookers in Russia, with Comey also saying that Trump urged the FBI to launch an investigation with the goal of discrediting this rumor.

In a written statement that Comey will read in person before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on Thursday, the former FBI director says that during a dinner with Donald Trump in January, the president said that he was considering ordering the FBI to conduct an investigation in order to prove that there does not exist a tape of him with prostitutes in Russia.

“During the dinner, the President returned to the salacious material I had briefed him about on January 6, and, as he had done previously, expressed his disgust for the allegations and strongly denied them,” Comey said. “He said he was considering ordering me to investigate the alleged incident to prove it didn’t happen. I replied that he should give that careful thought because it might create a narrative that we were investigating him personally, which we weren’t, and because it was very difficult to prove a negative. He said he would think about it and asked me to think about it.”

Comey says that two months later, Trump called him at the FBI and the president again brought up the allegations of an explicit tape.

“He said he had nothing to do with Russia, had not been involved with hookers in Russia, and had always assumed he was being recorded when in Russia,” Comey says in his testimony.

In January, BuzzFeed published a dossier compiled by former British intelligence official Christopher Steele, which contains a number of unsubstantiated and salacious allegations about Donald Trump, including that he hired prostitutes at a hotel in Russia and had them pee on a bed. The report also claims that the hotel room was being recorded and that Russia planned to use this tape in order to blackmail Trump.

“…TRUMP’s (perverted) sexual conduct in Moscow included hiring the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, where he knew Mr. and Mrs. OBAMA (whom he hated) had stayed on one of their official trips to Russia, and defiling the bed where they had slept by employing a number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden showers’ (urination) show in front of him,” the dossier says.

The veracity of this dossier has been called into question, and the allegations have never been verified. Still, the idea of there being an explicit tape of President Trump in Russia has since become an online meme, even though there is little credible evidence that any such tape exists.

Comey’s testimony this week also details three conversations he had with Donald Trump over the course of several months, with Comey saying that Trump during a dinner asked for his loyalty.

“A few moments later, the President said, ‘I need loyalty, I expect loyalty,'” Comey writes. “I didn’t move, speak, or change my facial expression in any way during the awkward silence that followed. We simply looked at each other in silence. The conversation then moved on, but he returned to the subject near the end of our dinner.”

In addition, Comey confirms in his testimony that he did indeed inform Trump that he is not personally under investigation.

Am pretty sure you were also calling for Obama’s birth certificate, too.

The FBI and the CIA would never be able to admit that this section is fabricated, or else it would completely undermine the public confidence in their other reports. But without evidence that supports its extraordinary claims, there should be coverage that it is a complete fabrication, a side taken up by 4Chan.

4Chan’s side has to do with Rick Wilson’s sexually-explicit quotation about the Alt-Right and anime. That quotation is why he became 4Chan’s troll target. 4Chan researchers discovered his son Andrew Wilson enjoyed abusing prostitutes with golden showers (Pimpfeet website owned by Andrew). Further support for fabrication includes the currency of 4chan (chicken tenders, which the dossier mentions Trump was eating), about the cameo of Trump’s Ritz-Carlton Hotel cameo in Home Alone 2 (where the golden showers took place), and about the dossier’s anime parties. There are just too many things that suggest this pee party chapter was nothing more than fiction, and that Rick Wilson and John McCain both got duped because of their seething hatred for Donald Trump.

Concluding that this section is fabricated is more reasonable than concluding it is real – as extraordinary claims demand extraordinary evidence, and the evidence is lacking:

” . . .. But without evidence that supports its extraordinary claims, there should be coverage that it is a complete fabrication.” Why should it be covered as complete fabrication? The dossier was prepared by a reliable British agent. It should be reported as it has been reported all along, i.e.,that it is not known whether it is true or false. Only if and when either possibility is proven, should the coverage change accordingly. Perhaps you rely on fake news and are not familiar with the tenets of legitimate journalism?

” . . .. But without evidence that supports its extraordinary claims, there should be coverage that it is a complete fabrication.”

I meant “…should be coverage REGARDING ITS complete fabrication” meaning that the article should contain a couple of sentences that discuss the controversy – how these few paragraphs reflect 4chan’s memes, Rick Wilson’s quotation, and Andrew Wilson’s fetish – all of which suggest the real possibility that someone floated these few paragraphs into the dossier.
