Comey (and the Media’s) Coverup Unravels

22

Holman W. Jenkins, Jr. ‘s opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal takes a chainsaw to the reputation of former FBI Director James Comey, as well as the media. Jenkins shows how Comey and the media’s actions are still to this day being protected because the government does not want to admit that the former head of the FBI acted unprofessionally.

In Gregg’s books, The Russia Hoax: The Illicit Scheme to Clear Hillary Clinton and Frame Donald Trump and his new book, Witch Hunt: The Story of the Greatest Mass Delusion in American Political History, Gregg lays out all the facts of the case, as well as how the media were willing participants in this scheme on the American people.

In Mr. Jenkins’ piece, he states:

“The media is a big part of the coverup. When the Justice Department inspector general issued his damning report on Mr. Comey, not one media outlet in the Factiva database told its readers about the existence of its classified appendix except this column and Britain’s Daily Mail tabloid.

[W]hile flogging fake revelations from the nonexistent Trump-Russia conspiracy, the mainstream press ignored a public plea, uttered before Congress, by the Justice Department’s own inspector general that the secret Comey information is declassified so the people and their representatives can know the truth about 2016.

Comey: FISA Abuse Not as Bad as My Other Screw Ups

Leaking secret intelligence, if that’s what Mr. Comey did, is a crime. But even more palpable is something else: The information remains officially classified not to protect national security but to protect the national-security establishment from embarrassment.

More than ever, Attorney General William Barr should act on the authority Mr. Trump has given him and declassify the inspector general’s report as well any material describing the role of other agencies (e.g., the CIA) in Mr. Comey’s election-meddling escapades.”

Mr. Jenkins is right. Attorney General William Barr should act on the authority of Mr. Trump and allow the American people to decide if they can trust the media and self, righteous unelected bureaucrats. When you read Gregg’s books, it is easy to see why you should not trust either.

  1. Mccabe was identified as having broken laws long ago—–still nothing, no indictment.

    After all this time, Durham is going to report during election season.

    Each one of these things by themselves raise suspicion. Put the two of them together and it’s almost a near certainty that this is all just being done to score some political points for the election and not a dang thing is going to happen to any of them.

  2. The threats to America from within are enormous. Obama almost succeeded in debasing America for good to attempt world power for himself through leading the UN. It is a grave mistake to leave the Coup D’etat and its perpetrators led by Obama unpunished . Treason left unpunished by the full extent of the law could undo the USA

  3. And we find out that the dod is required by law to document their financial arrangements and communications with steven halper—but none of the documentation exists. I’m shocked, shocked i tell you!

    And the result will be that they’ll promise to put together a committee to formulate procedures so that this ‘never happens again’.

  4. In this sick bloated world, McCabe’s “I’m sorry” for lying 4 times to Congress does NOT suffice, only jail time will. They want to convict Flynn, Stone, Papadopoulos for basically NOTHING, these double standards are downright dangerous & divided our country! Thinking of future elections, if this impeachment farce slips through, any president-elect will have to also include a House & Senate of their political party in order to accomplish any task before them. Otherwise the opposing party will start “impeachment” proceedings! This is the fork in the road! Choose the right path!

  5. We can only hope and pray they are all indicted because if they arent we can just kiss our democracy, our constitution, our country goodbye! The entire unhinged, unlawful delusional, projectionist impeachment cabal need ti be indicted for TREASON!!!! Cut the stupid speech that make these crimes seem petty!!
    If the U.S. goes down so does the world!
    I’m just greatful God is really the One in charge.
    All my faith and trust is in Him no matter what!!!

  6. Obama is still involved in anything unamerican. He and his longtime ass wipe Eric holder are thick as theives with Soro’s and his son. He is also pushing this impeachment because he knows soon or later Trump is going to sick the dogs on Killary, Obama and the Biden crime family. The DOJ. The cia. And the disgraced fbi. Are all corrupt and they got much worse under Obama’s command. Now let’s see how many are above the law!

  13. Mr. Biden: Please resign yourself to go quietly into full time retirement while you have any dignity left. Your KuKluxKlan comments about President Trump and referring to appearing as if it was 1920 instead of 2020, were so bizarre and mindless, it certainly shows you are absolutely not qualified, nor competent to lead our country. Then you and the Democrats fabricate Quid Pro Quo claims against the President for his Phone call with the President of Ukraine, all the while knowing it NEVER HAPPENED, and was a poor, despicable attempt at a coverup of the REAL QUID PRO QUO…. YOURS MR. BIDEN. Even with the complete, unethical, irresponsible, unprofessional, deceitful, despicable, ignorant fake news media, and their blatant disregard for TRUTH AND FACTS. tried to BURY the BIDEN REAL QUID PRO QUO.. but failed.. because unlike the fabricated untrue stories and lies made up by you and your Democrat cohorts, Mr. Biden, YOUR QUID PRO QUO is on VIDEO for all to see and hear… so please do yourself and your family a huge favor and RETIRE from Politics and save them any more embarrassment… 🇺🇸🇺🇸❤️

  15. DOJ (Mr Barr) and Special Council (Mr Durham) along with Gulianni will provide proof of the DEEP STATE TRAITORS COUP and bring all of the to JUSTICE.

  17. Great op-ed and even more – all comments by the readers above are spot on!

    I know we all want arrests yesterday of the many enemies within and their coup plotters but you must understand that president Trump, our military and the alliance here and abroad have only 1 (one) chance to take the deep state down.

    Remember the president walked into a den of hyenas ready to destroy him having ailed to keep him from being elected. Consider this:
    1. A corrupted FBI
    2, A corrupted DOJ
    3. A corrupted CIA and other related agencies with the exception of Admiral (ret) Mike Rogers/NSA
    4. A corrupted and treasonous democratic party
    5. A corrupted GOPe aka Never Trumpers and coup plotters.
    6. A corrupt treasonous state department
    7. A corrupt and entrenched SES agents spread throughout DC in every office or agency.
    8. A corrupt deep state entrenched at the Pentagon
    9. Corrupt judges/courts

    All this had to be cleansed which was an enormous task. The 7th floor is no more bc all the corrupt FBI gang was fired. The DOJ is partially cleansed. The CIA will be disbursed due to the many rogue agents having engineered coups all over the world in service of the deep state/cabal. The NSA will be the only agency to be in charge of the security of this country.

    What took these deep state/rogue administrate state and shadow government building the destruction of this country began in 1947 which was a great head start to implement is now time consuming taking it apart and cancelling the one world order.

    Meanwhile the only entity to remain true to the constitution was our military ergo the president activated our military and tasked them to begin to take down the deep state.

    President Trump also sought out politicians not compromised or blackmailed via deep state n both parties as well as an alliance here and abroad with the same goal in dismantling the deep state. This is the presidents 4th year and has made progress but more needs to be done. It is impossible to drain the swamp properly in that short period of time. His 2nd term will bring the long thought round up of the traitors here and abroad as the stage has been set up to this point.

    Please remain patient as the president, our military and the worldwide alliance crossing every ‘t’ and dotting every ‘i’ to have their solid cases for success.

    This is not a game and our military and their partners abroad are facing dangers and has cost lives.

    One thing we must and need to do is pray, pray hard to keep our president safe as well as our men and women in the military and their alliance. It is badly needed!

  18. Every poll taken outside the U.S. and I am not talking about our enemies but our allies say the main stream media in America can not be trusted. They say the American media lies, prints fake stories and do not even attempt to get sources to back them up, that they are bias you name it nobody looking in at this country respects the American media anymore. This is sad until this generation of host’s I can not bring myself to call them reporters they read what’s on the que cards like any other host. There has been story after story where the media in every state read the same comment word for word. The media has had to print more retractions in Trumps first 2 years then they have had to in the last 2 decades. I have heard people try and make excuse for that but when you factor in that all the retractions had to do with stories about Trump or his administration the simple fact is there is no legitimate way that could happen. The only way this could happen is if the media knowingly target Trump and his administration with false stories. I digress though when I was growing up the media was a source of pride for this country. 3rd world dictators spent unknown amounts of money trying to prove the American media were liars and fake propaganda to their people. They failed but thanks to this group they did it for them they sold out their integrity and their respect forgetting the major rules of journalism one report the story don’t be part of it. Second even if you don’t like the president cover him with honesty even if that president wins 2 terms that’s only 8 years. The media will be around after the president is long gone they forgot these simple rules. Trump will get re-elected and he will rebuild our intelligence agencies and people like Comey and Schiff are going to find it hard to sleep at night because at some point they will be arrested. The media will NOT get back the American peoples trust even after Trump leaves office in 2025. I honestly do not know if in our lifetime the media will ever get back the trust of the American people and out friends outside this country. This will take years and even then the clock will not start until they stop with the fake stories, the bias and get back to just reporting the facts I am 40 years old and if I live to be 100 I still don’t think the media will have earned back the trust they threw away for nothing.

  21. I am sitting up here in The Great White North watching with interest the blood sport that passes for politics in the USA. Not having any skin in the game makes it rather easy to see events clearly, untinged by emotional involvement. What comes across is one stunning fact:
    – The eight years of the Obama regime did enormous damage to the very foundations of the Great Nation of America.
    He has left hundreds of anti-American/Trump agents sprinkled throughout the government and agencies like metastasizing cancer sells ready to destroy, sicken, or debilitate anything within their range. If the Nation is to recover from the basically traitorous effects Barry Soetoro’s actions, every one of his appointments MUST be removed from their positions, post haste. The long they remain, the more difficult it will be to repair the damage they are doing daily.
