Every Eye Will Be On FBI Director James Comey As He Testifies Today On Capitol Hill
by Pamela Williams
COMEY IS LIVE HERE:
FBI Director James Comey is scheduled to testify today or rather present the FBI’s findings to lawmakers on Capitol Hill on President Trump’s wiretapping allegations. Unfortunately the findings are highly “classified” and will not be available to the public; however, we will be informed of the outcome of the wiretapping or surveillance findings. I, myself, have researched this enough that I have formed my own conclusion. It does not take a rocket scientist to do it, and I believe from the facts that Trump Tower was under surveillance during the 2016 campaign.
THE FOLLOWING WILL TELL YOU WHY I THINK TRUMP WAS WIRETAPPED OR SURVEILLED:
- Wiretapping was essential in retrieving the conversations of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and the Russian ambassador, which led to Gen. Flynn’s resignation as Mr. Trump’s national security adviser.
- On Oct. 15, 2016, the BBC reported that the U.S. secret intelligence court issued a warrant to investigate two Russian banks in conjunction with the Trump Organization.
- Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has lied about U.S. surveillance and wiretapping under oath.
- Mr. Obama issued a carefully worded non-denial.
- Mr. Obama expanded NSA’s powers in the days before leaving office.
- Journalists readily believe the Trump-Kremlin international conspiracy to rig the U.S. election, but immediately put down the idea the Obama DOJ using FISA against Mr. Trump.
It is a mess, isn’t it? But if you research for yourself, and do not listen to mainstream media reports that change daily, you can figure it out. That does not mean you will ever get the truth from FBI Director James Comey. The media is the main reason we cannot get the truth out and get it straight.
Unsubstantiated and anonymously sourced reports have continued to trickle in the news media about Mr. Trump’s team’s collusion with Russian officials, without any actual evidence. Mr. Clapper, of whom most journalists are using to vehemently deny any wiretapping on Trump Tower, also said the DNI found no collusion between Mr. Trump’s team and Russia. The media, conveniently picking and choosing what they want to report or what leads they want to follow, reeks of media confirmation bias.
According to The New York Times: “Mr. Flynn, who served in the job for less than a month, said he had given ‘incomplete information’ regarding a telephone call he had with the [Russian] ambassador in late December about American sanctions against Russia, weeks before President Trump’s inauguration.”
How was it discovered that Mr. Flynn gave this “incomplete information?” Because either a transcript or actual recording of the call were overheard by FBI officials and leaked to reporters.
It’s unclear whether the FBI — which uses Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants to eavesdrop — had tapped the Russian Ambassador’s phone or Mr. Flynn’s.
According to The New York Times: “In the fall, the FBI examined computer data showing an odd stream of activity between a Trump Organization server and Alfa Bank, one of Russia’s biggest banks, whose owners have long-standing ties to Mr. [Vladimir] Putin. While some FBI officials initially believed that the computer activity indicated an encrypted channel between Moscow and New York, the bureau ultimately moved away from that view. The activity remains unexplained.”
Two of those on the House panel to hear Director Comey have been at odds with one another, and they both are very eager to get the truth from Comey. Deep divisions over evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia have some predicting the delicate alliance forged by the panel’s leaders – Reps. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) and Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) – may be at risk.
Lawmakers are also eyeing former national security advisor Michael Flynn as another potential point of conflict. Flynn was forced to resign last month after media reports revealed he had misled Vice President Pence and other senior officials about the discussion of U.S. sanctions in a December phone call with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
Nunes has defended the former intelligence officer, arguing that the U.S. surveillance that exposed the contents of his call to Kislyak is the graver concern than the call itself. But Schiff has said it is his “expectation” that Flynn will testify. “If we can’t bring Flynn in, this investigation is going nowhere,” said the committee Democrat who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Democrats are also deeply skeptical of Nunes’ public relationship to Trump.
He served on the executive committee for Trump’s transition team and in February agreed to a White House request that he rebut a media report linking Trump associates to Moscow, which came as the committee’s investigation was already underway. “A lot of us have had concerns with some of the chairman’s comments that he may not be looking at this in an objective fashion,” Himes said.
If anyone is looking at this situation in an objective way, I don’t see them. President Trump has been beat up on when he has done nothing but tell the truth. The facts say Trump Tower WAS UNDER SURVEILLANCE, AND THAT IS AN OUTRAGE!
