Former FBI Director James Comey takes the cake with the best response to Bill Barr’ allegation that upper echelons of Obama’s Intel agencies spied on Trump’s 2016 campaign. Leaker Comey played dumb and said he doesn’t know what Barr is talking about.
“With respect to Barr’s comment, I have no idea what he’s talking about when he talks about spying on the campaign and so I can’t really react,” Comey said Thursday at a Hewlett Foundation conference.
Comey got the memo from his partners-in-crime John Brennan and James Clapper because he also called Barr’s spying allegation “concerning.”
James Comey then went on to define spying in his own terms and defended the FBI and DOJ.
“The FBI and the Department of Justice conduct court-ordered electronic surveillance, “Comey said. “I have never thought of that as spying…and if the Attorney General has come to the belief that that should be called ‘spying’ – WOW!”
“But I don’t know what he meant by that term — and factually I don’t know what he meant because I don’t know of any court-ordered electronic surveillance aimed at the Trump campaign and that’s the reason for my confusion,” Comey said.
Then-FBI Director James Comey personally signed off on THREE FISA warrants to spy on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
Comey used Hillary’s fake dossier as ‘credible intel’ and signed off on the FISA applications even though he testified that by the time he was fired as FBI Director, there was still no evidence Trump conspired with the Kremlin.
The final FISA warrant on Carter Page was signed in June of 2017 by DAG Rod Rosenstein and Andrew McCabe AFTER Mueller was appointed special counsel to investigate Trump-Russia collusion. There may have been more FISA warrants used to target other Trump officials.
It is believed that Obama’s corrupt DOJ and FBI obtained FISA warrants on General Mike Flynn, Paul Manafort and George Papadopoulos, however, it has not been confirmed.
According to the newly released transcript, ex-FBI lawyer James Baker refused to answer when Congressman Mark Meadows asked if multiple Trump associates (besides Carter Page) were spied on with FISA warrants.
Baker’s refusal to answer Meadows suggests that Obama’s FBI and DOJ indeed spied on Flynn and others with FISA warrants. But Comey has no idea what Bill Barr meant when he said Obama’s intel agencies spied on Trump’s campaign.
