Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

New York Times Says There is Evidence Trump Committed ‘Obstruction of Justice’

In what is apparently a “bombshell” report, the New York Times published a piece titled “Comey memo says Trump asked him to end Flynn investigation.”

The headline suggests a version of events that hardly resembles fact. In reality, Trump just said that he hoped Comey ‘can let this go.” It was hardly a demand that the title suggests. But we all know how the media will try to make a “catchy” title to get as many views as possible.

Mr. Comey wrote the memo detailing his conversation with the president immediately after the meeting, which took place the day after Mr. Flynn resigned, according to two people who read the memo. It was part of a paper trail Mr. Comey created documenting what he perceived as the president’s improper efforts to influence a continuing investigation. An F.B.I. agent’s contemporaneous notes are widely held up in court as credible evidence of conversations.

Mr. Comey shared the existence of the memo with senior F.B.I. officials and close associates. The New York Times has not viewed a copy of the memo, which is unclassified, but one of Mr. Comey’s associates read parts of it to a Times reporter.

“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” Mr. Trump told Mr. Comey, according to the memo. “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”

But some Republicans have taken the bait. Jason Chaffetz signaled his readiness to subpoena the FBI to see the memo in full.

The only brightside to this is that if the memo is released publicly it could prove that this whole story is just overblown and a smear against the president.

Watch CNN’s report on the New York Times article, they fully latch onto the idea that Trump demanded a half of the investigation.
