Former FBI Director James Comey told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that the FBI doesn’t spy. Moreover, Comey said he was confident with the FBI’s work to verify the dossier on then-candidate Donald Trump.
“Are you confident that you did everything by the book?” Cooper asked.
“Yes,” Comey responded.
Comey is likely covering his tracks here. According to Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes (R-CA), there were several instances where Comey used the unverified dossier on Trump to spy on members of the campaign including George Papadopoulos and Carter Page.
“The former FBI director is not a stupid man and he’s acting awfully stupid,” Nunes told “Fox & Friends” Friday.
Further, Nunes said that it was Comey who ‘made a mess of the FBI.’
Democrats… and Burr????
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) declared a ‘case closed’ on the Russia investigation Tuesday. But now, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) is issuing a subpoena to Donald Trump Jr. According to Nunes, it doesn’t look like Donald Trump Jr. will testify.
“The guy’s spent, you know, dozens and dozens of hours with the legislative branch already,” said Nunes.
On Thursday, Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) told reporters that ‘prison is the only answer’ for Donald Trump Jr. if he doesn’t comply.
President Trump said he was ‘surprised’ by the news citing his son’s already more than 20 hours of testimony. “My son was totally exonerated by Mueller, who frankly doesn’t like Donald Trump, me, this Donald Trump,” said Trump.
