WATCH: James Comey’s Senate Testimony Full Video Replay

For almost three hours, former FBI Director James Comey sat in front of a microphone on Capitol Hill and answered questions from the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Comey was testifying in front of the group Thursday in regard to his alleged interactions with President Donald Trump and the FBI’s investigation into his 2016 presidential campaign.

Comey opened his testimony before the Senate by saying that the Trump administration spread “lies, plain and simple” about him and the FBI, adding that the president “defamed” him.

The testimony touched on numerous topics regarding Trump’s various one-on-one meetings with Comey. In one instance, Comey said that Trump asked him to put an end to an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael T. Flynn.

“I hope you can let this go,” Comey said, referring to what Trump said to him about the investigation into Flynn.

Watch the full Senate hearing in the video below:



Trump fired Comey on May 9, citing the fact that he lost confidence in his job performance. Comey said that receiving the news he was without a job greatly “confused” him.

Just a few days after Trump made the decision to get rid of Comey from the Department of Justice, he tweeted that Comey better hope that there weren’t any “tapes” of the multiple conversations they had.

Three days after the Trump tweet, Comey said that he woke up in the middle of the night and hatched a plan to get the contents of memos that he drafted after meetings with the president out to the public.

“It didn’t dawn on me originally that there might be corroboration of our conversation, there might be a tape,” Comey said during the hearing.

Therefore, Comey decided the best path moving forward was to leak what was said in the memo to a news organization, which he did through a friend.

Comey didn’t directly identify the friend, simply saying he’s a professor at Columbia University. But shortly after he delivered the statement, it was confirmed that the friend was Daniel C. Richman, a law professor at the university.

The memo in question was spoken about in a New York Times article May 16, one day after Comey said he woke up in the middle of the night.

According to The Times, the February memo was after a meeting in the Oval Office between Comey and Trump where the president asked Comey to effectively shut down the investigation into Flynn.

“I hope you can let this go,” Trump allegedly said to Comey, according to the memo.

The former FBI director also said that he turned over all of the memos that he created to the Department of Justice’s special prosecutor, Robert Mueller.

Comey also talked at the hearing about a meeting January 27 at the White House where Trump said he expected Comey to be “loyal” and “honest” with him.

At that meeting, Comey said that Trump continued to ask him if he wanted to stay on as the FBI director. Comey called the meeting “awkward,” and added he thought it was an unprofessional move to have the two parties in a meeting together alone.

Part of the purpose of the much-anticipated Comey hearing was to determine if there is any evidence to prove Trump tried to obstruct justice in regard to the FBI’s ongoing investigations.

There you go. What Comey revealed is that President Trump did NOTHING wrong, he was never asked to stop the Russian investigation, and found NO evidence of a single vote tampered with. The Snowflake Leftist are going crazy. BWAHAHAHAHA

It’s been a long time since we had a President who cared about this country. It’s funny watching Trump’s opponents run around like headless chickens. They don’t know what is hitting them.

Real Americans revolted against the globalist elite! We wanted our jobs and country back! Our healthcare was too expensive. Mine is $700/month now (AND RISING!). My car insurance is still $25 per month (from Insurance Panda), but that’s probably about to go up too. Look at Detroit where car insurance is $300/month. Things are getting more and more expensive as it is. Can we really afford to support the world’s homeless?

It is so nice to wake up happy and not worried about our country. It’s in good hands. President Trump is putting America first. It’s been a very long time since that has happened in Washington…from the president or Congress.

ATTENTION: CHRIS WRAY!:…

In addition to Trump FAILING to sue CNN for CNN’s refusal to air Trump’s “PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT (the which, Trump would LOSE!… as he could be shown to have attempted a violation of the CONSTITUTIONALLY SANCTIONED Security of the Person of Americans!)”, he has also FAILED to “legally challenge” an “alleged victim” at, h-t-t-p://www(dot)huffingtonpost(dot)com/lisa-bloom/why-the-new-child-rape-ca_b_10619944(dot)html, for an allegation of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E!… and to sue alleged “FAUX NEWSERS”, that/ which have “falsly reported” the said C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E TALE! Thus, how can ANYONE– i.e., of G-O-O-D C-O-N-S-C-I-E-N-C-E!– trust a wanna- be Prez who screams “FAUX NEWS”, “FAUX NEWS”, “FAUX NEWS”!… and would sue his neighbor’s housecat if given the chance!… but would “clam up” tighter than a Contestant’s crotch on a segment of his The Apprentice, when challenged on his F-A-I-L-U-R-E to go after the I-L-L-E-G-A-L-I-T-Y, O-F A C-L-A-I-M O-F C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E! The reason, is ABUNDANTLY CLEAR!… T-H-E C-L-A-I-M I-S L-E-G-I-T!… A-N-D J-A-M-E-S C-O-M-E-Y, T-R-U-M-P– A-N-D T-R-U-M-P-‘-S “W-I-F-E”!– K-N-O-W I-T!
.
Chris Wray, If the allegation of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E against Donald Trump is C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L and T-O-R-T-I-O-U-S!… and, proffered by a “FAUX VICTIM”* and “FAUX MEDIA”!… then will you– as the new FBI Director (who has been Appointed by a “President” who is in a C-L-E-A-R CONFLICT OF INTEREST in making the Appointment!)!– be going after this “FAUX VICTIM” for proffering C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L A-N-D T-O-R-T-I-O-U-S C-L-A-I-M-S O-F C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E, and, will you be going after the FAUX NEWSERS for spreading C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L A-N-D T-O-R-T-I-O-U-S F-A-U-X N-E-W-S O-F C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E? Chris Wray, will you uphold your D-U-T-Y to protect America’s children, and American families? Otherwise!… it’s hard to rationalize why the FBI would leave the alleged Trump victim “HIGH AND DRY (e.g., she withdrew her filing on Nov 4, 2016, due to said fears for her life!… stated her counsel!)”!… and conversely, would fail to go after this FAUX VICTIM for C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L-L-Y A-N-D T-O-R-T-I-O-U-S-L-Y giving false testimony re an allegation of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E on the one hand, and, would fail to go after FAUX NEWESERS for reporting C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E on the other! And, how does that absence of FBI D-U-T-Y even make sense? And, why would one believe– should one believe!– that the FBI is S-O-O-O-O I-N-C-O-M-P-E-T-E-N-T that it would either fail to protect a victim of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E (F-O-R W-H-I-C-H, T-H-E-R-E C-A-N B-E N-O M-O-R-A-T-O-R-I-U-M!)!… or fail to go after A FAKE VICTIM who has alleged such a claim, and fail to go after FAUX NEWSERS which have reported same! A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E! And in Huffington Post’s report of Trump’s C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E charges, there was SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE for a judge to ratify the sending of the matter to a court for adjudication by Dec 28, 2016! And, so!… if the victim was P-A-I-D O-F-F, W-E S-H-O-U-L-D K-N-O-W A-B-O-U-T I-T!… A-N-D I-F H-U-S-H M-O-N-E-Y W-A-S O-F-F-E-R-E-D U-P A-N-D R-E-C-E-I-V-E-D, T-H-E-N T-H-E V-I-C-T-I-M A-N-D D-O-N-A-L-D T-R-U-M-P S-H-O-U-L-D B-E C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L-L-Y C-H-A-R-G-E-D! The victim, for R-E-C-E-I-V-I-N-G A B-R-I-B-E!… and he, for O-F-F-E-R-I-N-G A B-R-I-B-E, and for C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E!
.
Lastly… Chris Wray, will you be going after Donald Trump for releasing Classified information?
.
Please!… no emails!
.
P.S.: Given the VERACITY of the allegation of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E!… and Comey’s ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of this!… should Comey’s KNOWLEDGE soon pose an “indirect threat” to “certain” White House interests (e.g., if Comey decides to accept the offer from Julian Assange to act as a WikiLeaks Spy, re U.S. Government wrongdoing!), I’d be VERY CONCERNED about the safety and security of James Comey! Although!… maybe!… Julian Assange may feel that Comey would be “better protected” if he “befriends” the WikiLeaks League! And so… Chris Wray!… will you ensure the safety of James Comey, should Comey decide to “spill the beans” on MR. POTUS?

How could Hillary lose to this carnival barker? Think about it. There had to be Russian collusion. Or maybe there wasn’t, but let’s impeach him just to be on the safe side.
