James Comey Pulls Major Flip-Flop on Trump Influence Claim

Whatever the truth might be at this point, it’s clear that James Comey is starting to look like the a “drama queen” in Washington.

CNN decided to enter the fray yesterday with the latest development of who said what to whom, when and why.

Clearly disappointed to have been left out of the headline heroics from Friday night (courtesy of The Washington Post and The New York Times), CNN has decided that anonymously sourced perspectives on officials’ feelings now warrants reportage.”

CNN has gone beyond citing “officials” or “an anonymous source” to base its report on “a person familiar with his [Comey’s] thinking.” That’s a new one for journalist.

The latest in the sad saga of mainstream media’s downward spiral, as The Hill reports, [4] is that former FBI Director James Comey is expected to testify that he believes President Trump was deliberately trying to meddle in the FBI’s investigation of Russian interference in the presidential election, according to a report late Friday.”

It is becoming more and more clear that the former FBI Director may easily be confused or is just ready to change his tune if someone tells him to do so.

If you recall, in his previous testimony, COmey affirmed he “had never” been influenced during an investigation and that, if he had, he would have reported it immediately.

So to clarify, a disgruntled fired employee, who previously said no effort to influence was undertaken, has now changed his mind, according to sources, and thinks his former boss was trying to influence him (according to sources).”

If pressed by a member of Congress during his testimony, will Comey simply say, “I forgot.”

At this point, we have to take any reporting on this Russia interference case with a grain of salt. Who knows what anonymous source will come forward now with another twist in the story, or will we learn more from people “familiar with someone’s thinking.”

The White House never denied the New York Times claim that President Trump called Comey a ‘nut job,’ although Russia’s foreign minister did.

In the “he said, she said” world of unconfirmed, unsourced political intrigue, on Friday the US went to sleep with fresh news of the latest diplomatic snafu by Trump, when the NYT reported that during his president with the Russian Foreign minister Lavrov on May 10, Donald Trump said that Comey is a “nut job” and that his firing “eased pressure” from the ongoing Russian investigation.

The exchange in question:

“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.”

The alleged exchange was the only thing on the media’s mind during Lavrov’s press conference on Saturday, in which the Russian Foreign Minister refuted claims that he had discussed the firing of the former FBI director Comey with President Trump.

“We did not touch on that topic at all,” Lavrov told reporters on Saturday according to Russia’s RIA press agency.

In retrospect, this appears strange since not even the White House disputed the NYT’s version of the events, and instead White House press secretary Sean Spicer doubled down the attack on Comey saying that “by grandstanding and politicizing the investigation into Russia’s actions, James Comey created unnecessary pressure on our ability to engage and negotiate with Russia.”
