Gutfeld: Comey-Stephanopoulos Interview 'Junk Food for the Soul'

Then-FBI Director James Comey testifies on Capitol Hill

Then-FBI Director James Comey testifies on Capitol Hill

The Trump Comey described is the Trump familiar to me and anyone who has studied him carefully over the years.

To start with, Comey has strayed too far into barely concealed hatred and mockery, commenting on Trump's hair, skin tone, hand size and so on.

"Everyone has forgotten his letter a few weeks before the elections that damaged Hillary", Kovalik told hosts Brian Becker and Walter Smolarek, referring to Comey's reopening of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server just a few days before the 2016 election. "Disgruntled, he, [former Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy director Andrew] McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!"

"There's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice", Comey said, adding that if Trump were to fire the special counsel Robert Mueller it would "set off alarm bells that this is his most serious attack yet on the rule of law". Prosecutors indicated in court filings last week that Cohen has been under criminal investigation for months by the United States attorney in Manhattan and that, unrelated to the FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe, a grand jury has been hearing evidence in the case.

Former FBI director James Comey said he doesn't know for sure if Russian Federation has compromising material on U.S. President Donald Trump. Many believe his reopening of the FBI's inquiry into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as Secretary of State barely a week before the election, while making no mention of the active inquiry into Mr Trump and Russian Federation, swung the election to Mr Trump.

The jumble of references appeared to allude to unsubstantiated accusations Mr Trump has previously made claiming Comey lied in Senate testimony last May in denying he had served as an anonymous news source.

In a Sunday-morning tweet, Trump called Comey a "slimeball" while criticizing his handling of the email probe.

So, what was there left to discuss when George Stephanopoulos of ABC News sat down with Comey for an extended interview that played out in a prime-time special on Sunday night? "Just another of his many lies", Trump responded on Twitter Sunday.

India protests as Pakistan stops Sikh pilgrims from meeting diplomats

Syria says false alarm set off its air defenses
Russian Federation denounced the attacks as aggression against its ally, but there was no sign of an immediate military response. The targeted sites were largely empty, and were all said to be facilities for chemical weapons storage or production.

Sports court sides with Man City in transfer dispute case
Manchester City are still celebrating their Premier League title victory, but the club could be about to face a transfer headache. A formal announcement is expected from the CAS later this week, and Velez could yet make a technical appeal against its decision.

"This is not some tin pot dictatorship where the leader of the country gets to say 'the people I don't like go to jail.' Our Lady Justice wears a blindfold".

The president soon turned his focus to the Cohen raid, an aggressive move by prosecutors in the Southern District of NY, who were referred material by special counsel Robert Mueller III's team.

"The president thinks that Jim Comey is engaging in revisionist history", Kellyanne Conway, Counselor to President Donald Trump, said in a TV interview.

Though the two warring camps continually rehash an election that ended two years ago, trapping the American people in a perpetual nightmare between the two most disliked presidential candidates in USA history, they found common ground in questioning Comey's handling of federal investigations. So far, 19 people — including Flynn and Trumps former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort —have been charged in the investigation.

"People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values", he said. The retired general pleaded guilty last December and is now cooperating with Mueller's investigation.

Comey also says he found out he was sacked from television reports.

"You can not have, as President of the United States, someone who does not reflect the values that I believe Republicans treasure and Democrats treasure and independents treasure", Comey said. Thats our foundation. And so impeachment, in a way, would short circuit that.”.
