James Comey

  • Rachael, why do you spread LIES and Hatred against Trump?
    Stefan Molyneux says: "You really hope that crazy people will listen."
    And some do. I want you fired!

  • I don't know, Rachel. You picked two clips of Sessions that aren't actually contradictory. They concern two separate, though connected events.

    In his comments near the election, he was saying that Director Comey was right to correct the record that the investigation was reopened. In Comey's own words, he had a "duty to correct." He got hit by his own boomerang. I'm not saying that Sessions was unbiased in his comments. Clearly he was, But it doesn't contradict his testimony under oath.

    The other event that Sessions spoke of in testimony this week was the original press conference where Director Comey recommended no prosecution for Hillary Clinton. That may have been an usurpation of the duties of the Attorney General. Mr. Comey himself explained that episode that he felt it was necessary to take the decision out of AG Loretta Lynch's hands, since she seemed compromised by holding a meeting with President Clinton. Lynch's error had a real chance of blowing the lid off the investigation already concluded, dragging it out for another year or so, if a Special Prosecutor were hired to investigate it (again). So he clamped down the lid as soon as he could. I'm betting Mr. Sessions had something negative to say about that press conference at the time, since it "favored" Secretary Clinton.

  • What would happen to the world?? if hackers expose the people??that put thumbs down?? underneath vids like this??and educate them??

  • So, if Vladimir Putin has offered asylum to Comey to save Comey from trial and imprisonment why is Mueller Comeys Counsellor and is going after Potus instead this sounds suspicious to me!

  • I am very disappointed to hear that the Republican murderer was one of your acknowledged fans , regularly communicating with you on your show apparently you knew more about his political beliefs than his wife of 30 years. I would not like to have your type of influence on my fans!

  • Jeff Sessions is such a liar! OMG he isn't even a good liar! He was totally trolling that committee. They are going to make him pay for that!

  • THIS is not a business. This is the world stage. Everything is up and open to scrutiny. It seems these guys haven't learned that the good ole boy network, backroom way of doing things won't cut it here. . . especially when you get rid of a popular and well liked person for flimsy reasons. They actually thought firing Comey would be the end of the matter and they could go back to being c*ckholsters for Putin.

  • She's got good points, but I've had to fast forward. Spit it out lady, and stop repeating yourself so much please.

  • Sarah Huckabee Sanders, what a In-Over-Her-Head nimrod.

    Dear God, what on earth is the Trump W.H.thinking of, putting this mentally ill-equipped creature on display to "save face" for Trump.

    Nothing but morons in the White House, starting with scam artist Trump, his grifter family, and those disgusting creatures swimming around in Trumps orbit. Yech.

  • A employer (President) dosent need a reason to fire an employee(FBI Director), He works at the pleasure of the president period. Well not anymore. And I wonder how many more assassin's are watching Mr maddows hate filled crazy conspiracy theories right now.

  • Bets whatever trumps terrified of getting caught will end up being something we're not expecting, pretty sure collusion may be a factor, but I think his chummy monster friends will be at the root

  • The administration thought they were pouring water on the fire of the Russian investigation by firing Comey. They ended up with an independent counsel investigation. That's only a step away from an independent prosecutor. They poured gasoline on the fire.

  • Wow; a well thought out to a session of question (no pun intended, of course having a conversation is just leadership 101 but never mind. He had to go… yeah, right…

  • The way Comey handled the Clinton "Matter" is enough to get canned.  And I mean this for both parties perspective.

  • .@AGJeffBSessions is just as corrupt as the rest of #Trump's cabinet. Which really makes it worse considering he's supposed to be the top law and order enforcer in the country. He had no legal explanation for refusing to answer questions in the Senate Intel Committee hearing. He should have been held in contempt of Congress and led out of Congress in handcuffs.

  • Ah, you Trumpanze's, how can you still defend this complete embarrassment of a "president"? You have to be the most gullible group of uninformed supporters in the country, and your defense of this clown is DESTROYING the country. Shame on the Republicans, and shame on the enablers. You clowns hide behind "fake news", like Creationists hide behind, "evolution is a controversy"….

    Shame, shame……..

  • I see new ads attacking the Democrats on CNN. and MSNBC. With no responses from the Democrats. Stop being cowards and go after these scummy ads. Just say no to Trump isn't going to work.

  • The golden dream of a crook firing the cop in charge of investigating his wrongdoings. Only in America! Luckily the facts do not change a crook will always be a crook ad the law will always be the law it has a long arm and the crook's time is getting close. God bless America

  • James Comey was fired because he was asked by Lynch to call Hillarys investigation into her email a matter. he was fired for doing that exact thing. it's call colution and ubstruction of justice. look it up. don't just listen to these hacks

  • Trying to lie for trump is a no win situation he will not remember what lie we are telling this week day hour mid sentence but he will throw you under the bus without hesitation to save himself one minutes embarrassment imagine who he will destroy to stay out of jail
