White House accuses former FBI director James Comey of “false testimony”

Pressure mounts for James Comey to return to Capitol Hill and testify under oath, again.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked by a reporter to respond to Steve Bannon’s “60 Minutes” comment that President Trump firing of the FBI director was the “worst political mistake in modern history”.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders stated that President Trump’s decision to fire James Comey was the right thing to do….

“Since the director’s firing, we’ve learned new information about his conduct that only provided further justification for that firing.”

Sander provided a laundry list of reasons justifying Trump’s decision to fire Comey saying…

–“false testimony, giving leaking privileged information to journalists, he went outside of the chain of commands and politicized an investigation into a presidential candidate.”

Steve Bannon made the argument during a 60 Minutes interview that by firing James Comey, Trump opened up his presidency to the Mueller witch-hunt investigation.

Former FBI director, James Comey has recently been exposed to have exonerated Hillary Clinton months in advance of any investigation into her email server scandal, proving that the entire FBI investigation into HRC was a complete farce.

Fox News reports

The White House on Monday accused James Comey of giving “false testimony” and suggested the Justice Department look at whether he perjured himself, as Republican lawmakers stepped up pressure on the former FBI director to clarify apparent discrepancies in his public statements to Congress.

“Since the director’s firing, we’ve learned new information about his conduct that only provided further justification for that firing,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said, citing “false testimony” among her examples.

Asked to clarify whether she thought Comey perjured himself or at least misled Congress, Sanders told Fox News’ John Roberts: “I think that’s something probably for DOJ to look at, not me. I’m not an attorney.”

Another waste of time and money, he won’t get charged, the only interest they have is of finding any kind of charge against Trump.

What is left of the US judicial system when the Director of the FBI is a perjurer?

There was never very much to it anyway. Look at what has happened over the last 30 years. It’s a running joke that everything is stitched up against the ‘little people.’

Indeed. And we don’t sparkle in sunlight. Well… we don’t luminesce… except near our nuclear dumps… oh, AND our love of glitter. I guess we also sparkle, and suck the life out of the rest of the world. Fuck.

Bannon’s fallacy is thinking that Comey’s firing induced the Mueller investigation. Never mind if not that firing another trumped (pun intended) up charge would have been used anyway. The Dems and neocons have no other objective of removing or neutralizing Trump.

Question is why the administration still seems incapable/reluctant to go full bore after Comey and Clinton.

Comey and Clinton are part of the talmudo-satanist cabal that OWNS the USA and all that is in it, including you and me.

Happen to live in Europe but that doesn’t guarantee sufficient isolation from the US follies.

Depending on where in Europe you probably have at least one US base in your country and are therefore ‘Occupied’.

This is how a failed, rogue state ends: In carpetbagging, petty and high criminality, perjury, narcissistic greed and the general behaviour of overcrowded rats. Quarantine the USA now!
