Now It’s Comey Vs. Lynch: Someone’s Lying Again

So – once again we’re playing a game of “which former Obama administration official is lying?”

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch accused former FBI Director James Comey of lying about whether she told him to refer to the Hillary Clinton email investigation as a “matter” instead of an investigation in a September 2015 meeting.

While testifying last year at a closed-door House Oversight Committee hearing last June, Comey said Lynch had pressured him to minimize the significance of the Clinton email probe – an encounter which he says left him questioning her impartiality, and – along with Lynch’s clandestine tarmac meeting on a hot summer’s day in 2016 – contributed to his decision to hold a July 2016 press conference announcing the FBI’s conclusions.

The attorney general had directed me not to call it an investigation, but instead to call it a matter, which confused me and concerned me,” said Comey. “That was one of the bricks in the load that led me to conclude, ‘I have to step away from the department if we’re to close this case credibly.'”

Lynch, meanwhile, told congressional the House Oversight and Judiciary committees on December 19: “I did not. I have never instructed a witness as to what to say specifically. Never have, never will.

I didn’t direct anyone to use specific phraseology. When the Director asked me how to best to handle that, I said: What I have been saying is we have received a referral and we are working on the matter, working on the issue, or we have all the resources we need to handle the matter, handle the issue. So that was the suggestion that I made to him,” Lynch added – telling lawmakers that she was “quite surprised” to hear how Comey would later describe the conversation “because that was not how it was conveyed to him, certainly not how it was intended.”

A transcript of Lynch’s interview was released Monday evening by House Judiciary ranking member Doug Collins (R-GA) which reveals the conflicting testimonies.

Lynch was also presented with an excerpt of Comey’s book, A Higher Loyalty, in which he says she “seemed to be directing me to align with the Clinton campaign strategy” during the September meeting and that “the FBI didn’t do ‘matters.'”

“It occurred to me in the moment that this issue of semantics was strikingly similar to the fight the Clinton campaign had waged against The New York Times in July. Ever since then, the Clinton team had been employing a variety of euphemisms to avoid using the word ‘investigation,’” Comey wrote in his book.

“I wasn’t aware of the Clinton campaign strategy on anything,” Lynch responded, adding that she was “not trying to align anyone on any issue.”

As the Washington Examiner points out, “In a report released last year, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz found Comey was “insubordinate” and “affirmatively concealed” his intentions from Justice Department leadership during the investigation into into Clinton’s private email server.”

Horowitz also found that Lynch’s behavior was concerning, particularly when it comes to the tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton.

This isn’t the first time Comey’s claims have been in direct conflict with his former colleagues’. In April of 2018, Comey’s former Deputy, Andrew McCabe, said that Comey was fully aware that he (McCabe) was making self-serving leaks to the Wall Street Journal. McCabe was fired for lying about it under oath, several times.

It’s not okay. The McCabe case illustrates what an organization committed to the truth looks like,” Comey told ABC‘s ‘The View,’ adding “I ordered that investigation” which resulted in McCabe’s ouster.

McCabe hit back, saying in a statement through his lawyer that “Mr. McCabe advised Director Comey repeatedly that he was working with the Wall Street Journal on the stories in question…”

More recently, Comey and former CIA Director John Brennan are at odds over who insisted that the discredited Steele Dossier be included in the intelligence community assessment (ICA) on Russian interference.

According to Fox Newsan email chain exists which indicates that Comey told bureau subordinates that Brennan insisted on its inclusion, while a former CIA official “put the blame squarely on Comey,” according to the network.

“Former Director Brennan, along with former [Director of National Intelligence] James Clapper, are the ones who opposed James Comey’s recommendation that the Steele Dossier be included in the intelligence report,” said the official.

“They opposed this because the dossier was in no way used to develop the ICA,” the official continued. “The intelligence analysts didn’t include it when they were doing their work because it wasn’t corroborated intelligence, therefore it wasn’t used and it wasn’t included. Brennan and Clapper prevented it from being added into the official assessment. James Comey then decided on his own to brief Trump about the document.

So – once again we’re playing a game of “which former Obama administration official is lying?”

    More Democrat BS.
    Off subject;
    I have a solar question.
    Because I purchased pallets of panels,
    I ended up with an odd combination for charge
    controllers. To optimize panel use and minimize
    controller costs. My solution mixes a single Midnite solar
    150 with 4 Outback FM80 controllers. Anybody out there
    have comments about mixing charge controllers?
    I’m dealing with a lot of power here and manufacturers
    are useless. It should work, but that is on paper, any
    real world experience would be helpful.
    I’m using a forkfift 24 VDC LA battery( maybe two).
    This is a real Solar system, Running a Maintenance shop
    and two houses.
    ThankX!

      relik, you had to post this on a thread no one gives a rats ass about didn’t you lol. Since I was bored and popped in heres what I know. Since you have 4 outbacks you WILL NEED an outback Mate Hub to consolidate them. As far as throwing 1 midnite controller in the mix I hope you got one with the remote display. You will need to program the midnite to the same perameters as the outback hub. It won’t be perfect but should work ok. I have tried to program multiple outback controllers without the hub and even though the settings were the same they fought eachother. A mate hub takes care of this. CHEERS!

      • Genius says:

        By the way, I can’t believe the company you bought them from didn’t tell you that. Just because you sell solar equipment doesn’t mean you know what your doing (trust me I know lol).

        • rellik says:

          Gen,
          Thanks,
          I have not purchased the charge controllers just yet.
          I’ve just been doing the numbers before I order.
          Starting to dig for the ground mount in June I hope.
          Because my project is a little bigger than usual for this
          site, I’ll probably have to do a Ketchupondemand story
          to tell everyone how it turns out.
          Thus far
          44ea 240 Watt Hanwha panels
          connected as 16 strings of two to the 4 FM80’s
          and the remaining panels connected to the
          Midnite solar 150 in three strings of 4.
          I’ll buy extra fans as that really pushes the 150’s
          limits on a hot day.
          Why do we have to do this “off subject”.
          Aloha.

          • Genius says:

            Because this is never an article? Aloha too you too! It sounds like you have a lot of strings? You should be able to connect at least 3 panels in a string (if they are 72 cell) maybe 4 if they are 60 cell. Anyway, good yer getting it done! You will be a happy camper when it’s done.

            • Genius says:

              relik, If you have 60 cell panels with a Voc of 36 in a string of 3 thats 108 volts well below the 150 threshold. 720 watts times 3 strings is 2160 watts well within the 2400 watt threshold with a 24v battery bank. So 3 strings of 3 per FM80 controller. 9 panels per FM80 times 4 is 36 panels. Leaving you 8 panels. If you get the midnite classic 200 volt input controller then use 2 strings of 4 and yer done! You might be able to use the 150 but you will be pushing it.

  2. So – once again we’re playing a game of “which former Obama administration official is lying?”

    Which one isn’t?

  3. Yahooie says:

    If their lips are moving…..

  4. I trust none of the them. Yep, both are lying…..

  5. The Deplorable Renegade says:

    So which of the Obama cronies are lying? Simple; ALL OF THEM. ELIMINATE ALL OF THEM.

  6. Genius says:

    All is well in the world!
    There I just lied, and just like all things political, no one will do a freaking thing about it.

  7. Sgt. Dale says:

    Only one lying. Come on now I was born at night, but not last night. Both speak with FORK tongue.
    Sgt.
    .

  8. Who cares? Its all theater for the sheep. Nothing is going to happen unless a few thousand get their hands on them and string them up. Hell in FUSA you cant get 25 people together without BS happening!

    • Montana Guy says:

      CPB you are exactly right. Just more ‘Good Cop v Bad Cop’ distractions just like Republican v Democrat.

      Look around and you see more testimony to a fallen tyrannical republic. Sadly, even here in Montana patriots are NOT going to fight until trouble is literally at our door steps. That said, just avoid crowds and carry everywhere. The demographics (and opportunities for liberty) will be changing soon.

  9. Clown World says:

    Is having two depts at war against eachother part of the intended system of checks and balances, which would ensnare cantankerous people but leave the thinkers free to do whatever they want.

    Make some gourmet soda pop, or do something fancy, while they’re at eachother’s throats. idc. Not my circus, not my monkeys.

  10. Yohan Smythe says:

    Well after reading this article I thought I’d post that they all are lying. Seems everyone beat me to it.

  11. john stiner says:

    Now It’s Comey Vs. Lynch: Someone’s Lying Again

    No.

    The lies have never stopped, so they are not “lying again”. It is still the first lie!!!!

  12. Norrak says:

    When will all this BS stop? Not until the true patriots put an end to it. This is really getting old fast. The end could not come soon enough. In the 50’s the WH of Obozo would have been invaded and government agents would have been charged with TREASON.

  13. Clown World says:

    We don’t have any social standards, apart from partisan affiliation and hairsplitting legalese.

    Most people are not perfectly clear on what sort of living conditions they expect, or almost all of this would be illegitimate.
