Red Scare Grips Comey in Capitol Hill Testimony, says Russians ‘Hated’ Hillary and Thought Trump was ‘Hopeless’

In a long winded day of testimony by FBI director James Comey, one indelible exchange stood out to me like a sore thumb. Throughout all of the Russian hacking business, and baseless accusations designed to undermine President Trump, Director Comey’s incompetence shined brightest here — weaving a fantasy filled narrative of Russians hating Clinton and trying to undermine the US elections, only to later find Mr. Trump to be hopeless. The passive aggressive nature of these comments are not only accidentally disrespectful to the President of the United States, but they also expose the Directors proclivity to act rashly and without facts — saying things based on theories concocted inside of his office — in spite of the fact that they might further denigrate relations with Russia and make us look like a bunch of paranoid pavement apes.

Is it possible the Russians hated Clinton? Of course. Why wouldn’t they? After all, it was Russia who interfered in Obama’s schemes to upend Assad and install a new ‘rebel’ led government filled with terrorists. Moreover, the United States, hypocritically, had been meddling in Russian-Ukranian relations — imposing sanctions on Russia for clay that has always been within Russia’s sphere of influence for hundreds of years.

Here’s Democratic Congressman, Adam Schiff, being hosted by a Ukranian arms dealer.

And let’s not forget how chummy Sen. McCain was to who he thought was the Ukranian PM during a prank call last month.

If you’re Putin, clearly, you wouldn’t want Hillary elected — because it would probably mean World War 3. Don’t forget, Sec. Kerry was calling for aggressive action against Russia-Assad — which was thrawrted by Obama. Had Hillary been elected, the Syrian war might’ve taken on an element of global crisis instead of a localized quagmire of death and destruction.

If we’re talking about ‘Russian meddling’ into the US elections, we are only talking about whether or not Russia provided Wikileaks with John Podesta’s emails. That is the extent of the conspiracy. This whole drama is because one man, one incredibly stupid shill of a man, whose password for his gmail account was “PASSWORD”, got hacked and all of his sordid secrets of DNC primary rigging and collusion with the mainstream media was laid bare for the whole world to mock and deride.

To date, there is zero hard evidence tying Wikileaks to Russia — aside from Comey’s coffee table talk with his other Catholics in Action friends at the CIA.

      Is it possible that Mr Comey and the FBI aren’t privy to all the goings on of the different intel agencies? Or is he all knowing and therefore final definitive answer for all intel related business conducted.

    The mental gymnastics here is woefully inadequate.

    Who said the FBI did the surveillance on Trump? Moreover, vault 7 revealed the NSA and CIA actively use devices to spy on all Americans. Lastly, how many main stream articles do you need to read that said Trump was under surveillance for Russian panic to believe, in fact, it happened?

    Oh that’s right, because Comey said so in a testimony today, it’s all a fiction.

    How naive are you?

      The FBI and NSA don’t spy on American’s, remember Dick Clapper said so.

    The US Government has become so large and powerful that it meddles in a lot of things. But meddling isn’t the same as solving problems or resolving conflicts. There appears to be tremendous inertia to accomplish anything.

          reversion, ironbird is a moron …but you really do need to learn about what happened in Crimea and how the US State Dept was involved. Crimea is yet one more instance of arrogant fools in our government not anticipating consequences. Get beyond main stream media.

      Here’s the point: Crimea is none of my business, nor yours. Why don’t you research the poor Ukrainians who tried to seize power there. Literally nazis.

      Rev,

      What language to they speak in the Crimean?

      Who gave the Crimean to the Ukraine for logistical reasons only?

      Who was the president when Russia took it back?

      1. Russian

      2. Kruschev

      3. Obama

      Class dismissed

    “Catholics in Action” …

    As an aside, I love the Catholics (…and Christians, Buddists, Hindus generally). For having so few members who get all freaked out about how others refer to them/their faith ..or who leverage imagined affronts for advantage.

    All I want to know is when they are going to release the evidence that Russia hacked the DNC. So far its just fake news.

    So Trump’s allegation of being wiretapped in Trump Tower has now shrunk to fighting from a basement bunker – a story from a 9/11 truther on Fox with no foundation. Sad for Americans. Weak for Trump. Mental illness seeming more and more likely. I’ll go with paranoid dementia.

      I would expect Trump has either seen transcripts or heard recordings of phone calls made in Trump Tower, from the time before the election. The press all but confirm they exist, and as President certainly is likely to have access to them.

      Now queue all the excuses about how they were actually wiretapping foreigners and Trump Tower just “happened” to be on the other end.

      Then think about if you found recordings of your own phone calls on the internet, or released in Wikileaks, and saw the FISA court approval to wiretap you, and think to yourself, would I consider myself wiretapped in that scenario? If you start spouting the technicalities, fuck you, liar. Stop trying to use the frame of a weasel career politician and pretend you were an actual person.

        Right, there are secret recording that Trump has heard. He would be screaming from the rooftops about those recordings by now. You guzzle fake news like its gatorade.

    Can’t figure it out. Are they saying the Russians don’t need double agents anymore because any of systems are easily within their grasp? Or someone is leaking information? It’s not like this is the first time this has happened (Hansenn doing it for 25 years comes to mind) however I think they main takeaway is they don’t really seem to be concerned with any Russian counterintelligence. Seems a bit odd to me. They are in essence admitting failure or accomodating the Russians. I don’t like either route. Why anybody would cooperate with our arch enemy is beyond me. The Russians are nothing but evil.

    One thing is for sure – the pathological liar ain’t getting away with it anymore. 100 days in and nothing accomplished, what a joke.

    This turd read a fake news story of a wire tap and still claims it’s true – without one iota of proof. If it doesn’t scare you that this guy has the codes, you aren’t paying attention.
