FBI confirms Mueller investigation reviewed James Comey’s notes about his meetings with Trump

Published

on

On Monday, a secret court filing was revealed showing that former FBI Director James Comey acted as a witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference the 2016 presidential election — and that Comey’s personal notes and memos documenting his meetings with President Donald Trump were “of interest to that investigation.”

The details of the filing were revealed by USA TODAY editor Brad Heath:

As Heath noted, the filing also reveals that the memos revealed other witnesses to Comey’s conversations with Trump. The memos, as well as the transcript of hearings the FBI held with judges, remain concealed from the public.

Comey, who was fired by Trump shortly after he demanded “loyalty” from him, has long been a key focus of the debate into whether the president obstructed justice during the course of the Russia probe. Attorney General William Barr’s summary of the Mueller report claims that the special counsel neither charged nor exonerated the president — and some members of Mueller’s team say that the full report includes evidence the president committed obstruction.

The counsel for House Democrats then showed a text sent 30 minutes before Trump's July 25 call to Ukraine's president Volodymyr Zelensky, which shows the special envoy Kurt Volker dangling a White House visit to a Zelensky aide in exchange for an investigation.

Published

on

On Tuesday, as Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams testified publicly about their knowledge of the Ukraine scandal, conservative lawyer George Conway called the testimony "devastating" for President Donald Trump — and proclaimed his conduct both impeachable and criminal.

This testimony, from two witnesses to the July 25 call, is absolutely devastating. That call was absolutely “perfect,” all right—perfectly impeachable.

And criminal.

Former Obama officials torch Trump’s press secretary for ‘bald-faced lie’ about leaving mean notes

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham on Tuesday told a tall tale about Obama officials -- and now many of them are calling her out for it.

While talking to reporters, Grisham alleged that Obama staffers in January 2017 left notes that read, "You will fail" for Trump officials.

The story immediately raised suspicions among reporters who were skeptical that such notes would have remained a secret for nearly three years, especially given how leak-prone the Trump White House has been.
