Former FBI Director James Comey devised a plan that he believed would bury then President-elect Donald Trump.
On January 5, 2017, Comey briefed the Presidential cabinet on his belief that the President-elect has helped Russia interfere with the presidential election.
But over a year later, Comey’s plan has come to pass with no serious repercussions for the president—meaning Comey failed.
Losing his job in the process was one major pitfall for the former FBI director, but another stumble was his recent accounts of the event over a year later.
These accounts will soon be published in his new memoir, “A Higher Loyalty.”
The Daily Caller reported:
January 5, 2017: The unthinkable had come to pass. The Democrats were shattered. Donald J. Trump was president-elect. A small group solemnly convened in President Obama’s Oval Office: Mr. Obama, Vice-President Biden, Susan Rice, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, and intelligence agency heads James Clapper, John Brennan, Admiral Michael Rogers and FBI Director James Comey. The meeting was to brief the president on the evidence of Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election.
The “salacious and unverified” “Steele dossier” was already in the mix, but of course they say they didn’t discuss it. Despite its lack of verification, it had been widely circulated for months. Mother Jones — courtesy of then-anonymous Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS — had begun spreading the rumors that Russia had dirt on Trump back in October just before the election. The FBI and Department of Justice had obtained one FISA warrant with the dossier already –against former Trump campaign associate Carter Page. That would expire in approximately two weeks, and soon most of this cabal would be out of office. They only had 15 days to find a way to protect the country against Donald Trump.
According to Susan Rice, after Clapper, Brennan and Rogers left the room, Director Comey had a “follow on conversation” with the president and others about how to proceed. This resulted in two things: Susan Rice’s bizarre email to herself — 15 days later and 15 minutes after President Trump was sworn into office; and, Mr. Comey’s trip to New York to set the stage with the president-elect for using the media to pump the “collusion” narrative with which it had already been primed.
According to Ms. Rice’s belated email, all President Obama did was to tell everyone (twice) to go “by the book.” He was “not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective.”
After this meeting, several cabinet members were certain to say President Obama told the cabinet members to follow the code of law “by the book”— which is exactly what didn’t happen.
After the big initial meeting with the former presidential cabinet, former FBI Director James Comey met with President Trump the next day for the infamous Trump Tower meeting where “memos” have supposedly been leaked.
It seems Comey’s plan came together after all—but Comey was the one who lost it all.
Do you believe Comey created this elaborate plan?
