James Comey’s Seven Layers of Malarkey
Former FBI Director James Comey were deeply involved in the “Russian collusion” hoax, and he participated in the surveillance of the Trump campaign and transition. Consistent with Comey’s incredible 2018 testimony in the House, “the former FBI boss asks Americans to believe that he remained far removed from the most consequential case he has ever managed,” reports James Freeman in the WSJ.
In a television interview this week on the 2016 surveillance of a Trump campaign associate, Mr. Comey tried to place himself bureaucratic miles away from the scene, saying:
As the director sitting on top of an organization of 30,000 people you can’t run an investigation that’s seven layers below you. You have to leave it to the career professionals to do.
Not Everyone Buying Comey’s Nonsense
When Martha MacCallum of Fox News asked Attorney General William Barr if he believed the Comey tale, Mr. Barr responded”
No, I think that the one of the problems with what happened was precisely that they pulled the investigation up to the executive floors, and it was run and bird-dogged by a very small group of very high level officials.
And the idea that this was seven layers below him is simply not true.
