Comey Collusion Isnt a Crime and Its Weird the Media Keeps Using It as a Term

Over the weekend the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees released a 235-page transcript of closed door testimony given last week by former FBI Director James Comey. Comey was subpoenaed for questioning about the 2016 presidential election, how Robert Mueller's Special Counsel investigation was initially launched, details on how the FBI handled the Clinton email scandal and more. 

During an exchange with Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy, Comey essentially said talk of "collusion" as a crime doesn't exist and that the media has made up the term. 

Mr. Gowdy: Some of our friends in the media use the word "collusion" from time to time. What is the crime of collusion?
Mr. Comey: What is the crime of collusion? I do not know. I've never heard the term "collusion" used in the way it's been used in our world over the last couple years before that. I don't know of a crime that involves collusion. I think in terms of conspiracy or aiding and abetting.

The media talking point since Hillary Clinton lost the presidency to Donald Trump on November 8, 2016 has been "collusion with the Russians." Of course, this narrative comes directly from Clinton herself, the Democrat National Committee and the bogus Russian dossier they purchased (from a foreign spy) to smear Trump and his campaign.

After nearly two years of a Special Counsel investigation, there has been no proof of "collusion" (whatever that actually means) and yet it's been repeated over and over again by the media.

Considering how heavily invested the Democrat media complex has become in their "collusion" fantasy, it is unlikely they'll be changing their language.

Here Are The Most Interesting Parts Of The Latest Mueller Filings

Image result for mueller

Three court filings, from the special counsel and New York prosecutors, reveal new details in the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Three documents filed in court Friday revealed new details in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The documents pertained to the government’s cooperation agreement with Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer, as well as Mueller’s assessment of why former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort breached his plea deal with investigators.

The special counsel said in a memo to a federal judge that Manafort lied to investigators in the special counsel’s office about his contacts with administration officials, among other things.

Mueller’s filing on Cohen outlined how the attorney assisted the special counsel’s office by providing “information about his own contacts with Russian interests during the campaign” as well as details on the Trump Organization’s real estate plans in Russia. Cohen also admitted to making hush-money payments to two women at the direction of Trump.

In another filing Friday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York submitted a sentencing memo for Cohen recommending he served 42 months.

All three court filings provide new insight into where the special counsel’s investigation currently stands. Here are some of the most interesting tidbits.

Mueller’s Memo On Manafort

Manafort told “multiple discernible lies,” Mueller’s team said. “These were not instances of mere memory lapses.”

Manafort allegedly told five main lies to the special counsel and the FBI.

Fox News Tucker Carlson turns on Donald Trump I dont think hes capable

Image result for tucker carlson

Tucker Carlson isn’t one to shy away from going after the critics of President Donald Trump on his nightly Fox News show.

But in a new interview with conservative Swiss magazine Die Weltwoche, the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host called out Trump himself for his boastfulness and for failing to keep his promises to his voters.

“His chief promises were that he would build the wall, de-fund Planned Parenthood and repeal Obamacare and he hasn’t done any of those things,” said Carlson, per The Washington Post. 

Carlson said he’d “come to believe” Trump’s role was “not as a conventional president who promises to get certain things achieved to the Congress and then does.”

“I don’t think he’s capable,” Carlson explained. “I don’t think he’s capable of sustained focus. I don’t think he understands the system. I don’t think the Congress is on his side. I don’t think his own agencies support him. He’s not going to do that.”

Carlson said it was “mostly” Trump’s fault that he hadn’t been able to deliver on his pledges, because “you really have to understand how” the legislative process works and “be very focused on getting it done.”

″(Trump) knows very little about the legislative process, hasn’t learned anything, hasn’t surrounded himself with people that can get it done, hasn’t done all the things you need to do so. It’s mostly his fault that he hasn’t achieved those things. I’m not in charge of Trump,” he added.

Instead, Carlson suggested Trump’s role had been “to begin the conversation” on issues such as immigration — which the conservative TV host has frequently and fervently railed against.

Mueller Michael Flynn Cooperated In Russia Probe Shouldn’t Serve Prison Time

The special counsel’s latest filing includes new revelations about the former Trump national security adviser’s dealings with Russia.

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn has offered extensive cooperation in the Russia investigation and shouldn’t spend any time in prison, special counsel Robert Mueller’s team said in a court filing on Tuesday.

Mueller’s team, in two memos filed ahead of Flynn’s Dec. 18 sentencing, said that Flynn participated in 19 interviews with the special counsel or other Justice Department officers and provided documents and communications. One memo ― heavily redacted ― specified some of the evidence that Flynn provided.

“His early cooperation was particularly valuable because he was one of the few people with long-term and firsthand insight regarding events and issues under investigation by the [special counsel’s office],” Mueller’s office wrote. “Additionally, the defendant’s decision to plead guilty and cooperate likely affected the decisions of related firsthand witnesses to be forthcoming with the SCO and cooperate.”

Flynn pleaded guilty last December to lying to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian government while he was serving as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser.

Flynn ― who joined in chants of “lock her up” against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Republican National Convention ― admitted that he made a false statement to the FBI on Jan. 24, 2017. Flynn had denied that he’d asked the Russian ambassador not to retaliate over U.S. sanctions the Obama administration imposed in December 2016 in response to Russia’s interference in the U.S. presidential election.

Flynn admitted in his plea that he spoke to the Russians at the direction of Trump transition team officials.

Flynn has played an outsized role in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. He had attended a 2015 gala in honor of RT ― the Moscow-controlled new
