How James Comey Emerged as Central Figure in Treasonous Plan to take down President of the U.S.

In the aftermath of the James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, the Washington swamp and the Deep State are now on notice that the President is on to them — they are sweating bullets because their criminal games of corruption are being pursued and they know it. They are screaming and ranting at the illogical hysterical level because they are desperate denizens of the swamp who are beginning to realize that they been had by way of their mindlessly false narrative of Russian collusion, schemes of contrived, outlandish, and despicable Russian tabloid urination dossier, and the dreamt-up lies about election interference and obstruction of justice. They know they are finished.

The Washington, DC swamp and its bottom-dwelling denizens and inhabitants realize their Socialist bent is at risk from this pro-America First political outsider who is not connected to the Uniparty political machines its anti-American interlocutors and Establishment lobbyists. Immediately after the loose of Hillary Clinton and before President-Elect Donald Trump took office, a “failsafe” plan was being implemented to deliberately and intentionally ruin President Trump’s administration and try to delegitimize him, his family, and to force him out of the presidency. The key players committed to the plan are the Democrat party political leadership, their members in both House of Congress, the anti-Trump Republican Establishment, the NeverTrumpers, the mainstream media, and the Obama-Clinton operatives imbedded throughout the intelligence agencies, and first and foremost, the Obama Justice Department, and of course Mr. Comey.

The scheme at play was and continues to be an orchestrated daily display to smear President Trump with the Russia “connection” through a “fake FBI investigation” and more importantly, to trap the President into a deceptive charge of criminal interference with an FBI investigation, albeit phony as it is. As a result of both his actions to date, and his deceptive and less than truthful comments to the Senate Intelligence Committee members during his Senate testimony — it is more than obvious that Mr. Comey made himself the central figure in this scheme to take down Mr. Trump, as demonstrated by the now, more than ample evidence, historical precedence, and his contentious and dubious political reputation. In addition, be aware that the surveillance of the Trump campaign continued after he was elected, during the transition, and early on after January 20 2017. All participants and members of his campaign and administration that were “unmasked” were done so illegally, as were the highly classified above Top Secret transcripts that were leaked throughout the government and to the media.

When Lt. General Michael Flynn legally and appropriately took calls from Russian officials just like he did for all other foreign governments on behalf of Mr. Trump — they, the Deep State operatives brushed off the contraband UK “urine dossier” and released the restricted highly classified controversial and debatable intelligence data derived from the Obama administration’s disreputable surveillance of the Trump presidential campaign and transition team, the notorious unmasking Mr. Trump’s associates, and the unsavory and murky leaking their names to the mainstream media. In the meantime, while that was in play, Mr. Comey adopted the phony “Russian Conspiracy theory” at the behest of the Hillary Clinton campaign, and with that — the fake Russian collusion narrative was now in play. With the help of anti-Trump Republican insiders, like swamp warmonger and kingpin sell-outs Senator John McCain, House Speaker Paul Ryan, along with their lecherous Senate and Congressional colleagues, the hoax Russian collusion story was leaked and spread throughout the mainstream media.

To use a military metaphor, “Bottom Line Up Front” (BLUF), there is no actual evidence of any collusion or any connections between Donald Trump and or his campaign with Russia, period! But that has not prevented Mr. Comey and the rest of the Washington, DC swamp from initiating an “investigation” by the FBI. This by design provided Mr. Comey with protection against President Trump from firing him immediately, though the President obviously knew that too. With that in mind, Mr. Comey (and his seething minions) in turn never stopped, constantly and continuing to leak fake news by way of rumors, innuendo and accusations of the “Russia Investigation” to the media. And in lock-step, the mainstream media did its job scripting and in its daily feed, screaming constantly about “Russia, Russia, Russia.” Likewise, the Democrats fulfilled their role as well by constantly and insanely screaming and echoing the same. Subsequently of course, Senator McCain and the Republican anti-Trump establishment performed their part by promising to investigate and get to the bottom of this and to determine the truth about how the Russians influenced the outcome of Hillary’s election campaign, and totally threw the election in favor of Donald Trump.

As we arrived at January 20th and the Presidential Inauguration, immediately after President-Elect Trump was sworn in, the DoJ Hillary/ Obama operatives and Mr. Comey started their direct attack. This of course was before Senator Sessions had been appointed and confirmed as Attorney General (AG), nevertheless the DoJ was still controlled by Obama operatives. To that end, Deputy Attorney General and Obama political appointee Sally Yates approached the White House with news that General Flynn had been in contact with the Russia Ambassador to the U.S. and alleged that he might be compromised. She revealed that there was now an FBI “investigation” into the Russia ties (which they are constantly leaking to the media themselves). The White House Counsel (who Yates talks to, not Trump) asks for some more information. The day before the promised additional information was to be provided by Yates to the White House, Mr. Comey sets up a dinner with President Trump. The baiting scheme being that if Mr. Comey could get the President to ask about Flynn, or to try to intervene regarding Flynn or Russia, then President Trump could be charged with “interfering with an FBI investigation.”

As a caveat, it also need to be addressed and pointed out it was at this time that Mr. Comey indicated and suggested that following the dinner meeting with the President that upon his departure for the evening and once in his vehicle, he proceeded to make a note of and draft a memo for the record. In further, analysis of this comment and later revelations by Mr. Comey, I believe this to be false and that Mr. Comey never drafted or prepared a memo that evening at all. My contention is that one major point that has been missed is the actual time of when Mr. Comey’s memo was actually written. While Mr. Comey claimed during his testimony that he drafted the memo while in the vehicle on a laptop immediately following his meeting with the President. My position again is, that is in fact false and a lie. My belief is that the memo was prepared for the sole purpose of being leaked. To that end, I firmly believe that when Mr. Comey says in his testimony that he woke-up realizing he needed to leak the memo – that in fact was the impetus to the actual writing the memo. As it was, Mr. Comey’s rationale was that he needed to get his story out in the media and therefore needed a document — hence the infamous “memo” of record which he testified to have been given to his professor friend to be subsequently leaked. In turn, he drafted that memo as the vehicle to leak his story.  No other account or reporting has suggested this analysis, and so until it is proven to be false, it is in reality the more likely position and theory of what actually occurred.

It is also obviously apparent that this was a two-fold effort. The reason being is because it protects both Mr. Comey and DoJ Democrat holdovers from being terminated by the Trump administration because; 1.) they are involved in manipulating and orchestrating the ongoing investigation, and 2.) they control the timetable and the agenda, of course albeit, one with absolutely no evidence what so ever. Their rationale was that if Mr. Trump tried to fire Mr. Comey, then it could be used to falsely charge that the President was “obstructing and interfering with the investigation” which is itself a federal crime that the FBI would then have to “investigate.” Alternatively, their strategy involved the option that if they could get Trump to question Comey about Flynn, or try to get Comey to back off of Flynn, or to back of the “Russia” investigation, then they again have him involved in obstruction and interference with an ongoing investigation – which is what they are trying to do.

It is my belief that President Trump knew this was all a set-up by James Comey, and that he more than likely knew he is probably being recorded (as a result of tip-offs from FBI and/or DOJ insiders who were not part of the Deep State operatives’ political conspiracy and corruption). Perhaps he also understood and was aware that his phone calls in the White House, because as President had already been bugged, and released to the media (note the FBI is in the best position to do this). Perhaps because he knows the game from experience being used to the Mafia in New York trying to shake him down every time he built a hotel. Mr. Comey had told Donald Trump that he was not under investigation regarding Russia, but that others involved with the campaign were being investigated.  Of course, Trump always being multiple steps ahead did not take the bait and or attempt to intervene over General Flynn or the Russia scam.

Personally, and with the information and knowledge I have, I believe General Flynn was the target of both Comey and of the Obama-holdovers in the Intelligence Community, particularly CIA, and by the Obama DoJ. In turn, Flynn knew this and agreed to be cut loose, as he was aware he was being used to try to damage Trump. Flynn did not thing wrong and carried out his duties and responsibilities according to and with the authorities established the newly appointed National Security Adviser. The Democrats, the anti-Trump RINO establishment, the NeverTrumpers, the mainstream media, and the Obama-Clinton operatives all know this is in fact the case. Further, there are also reasons not talked about, or mentioned that is based on what General Flynn knew and was aware of within the Intelligence Community, going back to when he was Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). That pertained to selective actions within various other intelligence organizations designed to weaken, disrupt, prevent, and politicize and to in-turn ensure the most accurate and adequate intelligence information was provided to U.S. military forces and leadership. General Flynn fought this while serving as DIA Director and under his own authority tried to correct this. As a result, it was for this reason Obama loyalists and political forces within the Obama administration tipped President Obama to relieve General Flynn. Fast forward to now, it is highly suspect that perhaps a number of those same politicos remain imbedded within the Intelligence Community, and are no doubt members of the Deep State conspiracy. They for certain would be involved in ensuring that General Flynn would never be President Trump’s National Security Adviser – primarily because he knew too much.

Rest assured, President Trump knew and knows everything I’ve mentioned and gone through and is well aware of everything about Mr. Comey. But of course, as a result, it is more than obvious President Trump had to move very carefully … and did.  Additionally, what is extremely important is that President Trump had to get his Attorney General and Deputy AG in place, and he needed to get enough leverage on those working against him and his administration in order to overcome the false Russia narrative, and ideally to be able to remove of Mr. Comey as FBI Director in a way that allowed him to be in a position to obtain all the information that Mr. Comey had been accumulating on both Donald Trump and those in his inner circle. Critical to this was that if he Mr. Comey was surveilling and collecting electronic intelligence “i.e.; taping” Mr. Trump, he was most certainly doing the same to many others. In the meantime, Mr. Comey verbally told the President on two more occasions that he was not being investigated and was never the target of an investigation, perhaps in an attempt to further bait Mr. Trump, but refused to state this fact publicly, or when testifying in Congress, so as not to give President Trump a political advantage. In addition, by not revealing this fact publicly, it allowed all political opposition and the mainstream media to continue to push out and to prominently publicize the false Russian narrative.

In turn, Mr. Comey, and others testified in Congress. Under oath, both Sally Yates and Intelligence officials from the Obama administration stated that there has been no actual evidence of any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. More importantly, Mr. Comey, while refusing to say that Donald Trump was not or never under investigation, testified that he has informed the Senate Intelligence Committee heads who exactly was/is under investigation regarding Russia.

As I continued to say, in general, Donald Trump’s modus operandi is to always remain three-steps ahead, if not more, of his opponents. The other significant issue is Mr. Trump’s capability and discipline to reveal to almost no one, other than key family members, and perhaps maybe one other person in his inner White House circle, that he was moving against Mr. Comey. Further, Mr. Trump ensured his conversations were few if any to avoid leaks … one of the reasons no one is allowed to listen in on his most of his conversations, which as President, he retains Executive Privilege. During this process to circumvent and end-run Mr. Comey, President Trump established away to somehow secretly and confidentially contact Republican Senator Charles Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Unknown to virtually everyone, during this contact  he was able to confirm that Mr. Comey told Senator Grassley that President Trump was not under investigation, personally, ever. With that, President Trump now had that information to which he proceeded to have both the Attorney General and the new Deputy Attorney General to legitimately review Mr. Comey’s unprofessional actions at the FBI, and to recommend in writing that President Trump should immediately terminate FBI Director James Comey, for his unconstitutional, unprofessional and conspiratorial association with the former Obama administration officials, and for loss of confidence by the President of the United States.

President Trump’s strategy took place when Mr. Comey decided to go to California to visit a field office. At that time, the President then took action to seize the moment and make his move. While Mr. Comey was in California, President Trump sends a letter to the FBI firing Mr. Comey, with AG Sessions and the Deputy AG letters of recommendation attached. This was not a violation of protocol, it was tactical in nature.  In the letter, President Trump stated that he had been told three times by Mr. Comey that he (Trump) was not under investigation. In addition, the letter was hand-delivered to the FBI headquarters by DoJ officials with specific instructions to lock-down and seize everything in Mr. Comey’s office, including all surveillance files (“tapes”) of Trump and others. All of Comey’s files, documents, computers and “tapes” were taken to AG Sessions at DoJ. They were not taken to the White House or to President Trump, but to AG Sessions, who under Federal law and statutes has the authority to have them since they are in fact government property with the Executive Branch. Under his legal authority AG Sessions can notify and brief President Trump that Comey had surveillance tapes of Trump that contradict what Mr. Comey has been telling the President, and perhaps tapes of conversations with other Deep State conspirators. To protect the President, he does not have those materials or the evidence personally, or located at the White House. In the end not, that President Trump compartmentalized the strike and did not inform any of his White House “staff” to prevent leaks. Details of this evidentiary information has not been revealed to date. This was a brilliant, strategic and totally imperative move, at exactly the right time, implemented and used against the horrible, evil, and corrupt powers now infesting our government, all of which were orchestrated and implemented by the Obama administration as part of his post administration hostile and despicable “shadow government, aka the Deep State.

As it turns out, Mr. Comey, perhaps by design, learned that he was fired when he heard the media announcements that afternoon in California that he had been fired as FBI Director. To his surprise and perhaps chagrin, Mr. Comey had no idea it was coming and was described as being angry, but more so because he was caught, by way of President Trump’s masterful strategy. Nevertheless, and on cue, the Democrat politicians and mainstream launched their false and fake adversarial counter media effort screaming about Trump’s “interference with the Russia investigation” in accordance with the plan to set up President Trump for that charge. Two weeks ago the political left and the Deep State wanted to validate the Russia narrative using Mr. Comey, where his testimony before Congress designed to try to hurt President Trump by saying he was both a liar, and had interfered with and obstructed the FBI investigation. Mr. Comey himself intent was to follow through with the plan to take down Trump.

However, because of his brilliant timing on this, President Trump had Comey’s files, documents, and information safely with Sessions at DOJ. Following his “multi-steps ahead strategy,” Mr. Trump sent out a tweet that reads; “James Comey better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press.” Again, notice how Trump emasculated Comey and the swamp denizens by letting them know in a tweet that the Attorney General now had the information (surveillance “tapes” from the seizure of Mr. Comey’s office) to let Mr. Comey and his handlers know that the President’s DOJ had the goods on them.

The media and politicians from both sided of the aisle went crazy about the “inappropriateness” of this tweet. They accused President Trump of “taping” everyone at the White House (forgetting that the President’s phone calls with foreign leaders have been “taped” without his knowledge.)

It is important to note, that the President did not say he taped anyone, or that he had any “tapes” in his possession at the White House. In addition, to me, it seems quite apparent that Mr. Trump was telling Mr. Comey that the DoJ (who has every legal right to possess it) has the surveillance information and files from Mr. Comey’s office, the “tapes” obtained and kept by Comey. Mr. Comey and all of his colleagues within the Deep State and the Obama administration holdovers within the DoJ understand the clear message that their plan has failed and that at this point in time President Trump’s DoJ now holds all the cards.

As a result, the whole Russia interference and collusion scheme has crashed and burned. While the mainstream media, the left-wing and political-left insane fringe continues to scream about Russian narrative and Mr. Comey being fired, the politicians who will soon be in the crosshairs of a legitimate (and anger) FBI and DoJ are starting to fall innocuously silent. Further, Mr. Comey has come to the realization that all the leverage is now with Trump, and that he will be lucky if he is not added to the Clinton-Lynch conspiracy and collusion list because of his knowledge and more and more obvious involvement.

It is interesting as a side note, prior to his Senate Intelligence Committee testimony last week that Mr. Comey had told Congress he would not testify and in turn had written a public letter to the FBI accepting his firing and telling them he did not nor does not want to discuss why or how he was terminated. Senator Grassley and Senator Feinstein (who (appears to be covering CYA’ing herself in fear …) issued public statements confirming that Mr. Comey had told them that the “Russia Investigation” does not involve President Trump personally.

It is also fairly obvious, that AG Sessions and the Deputy AG used the Comey trove of information to determine who has been part of the Comey Syndicate within the FBI. Their effort will be to appoint an “interim” Director of the FBI shortly who has not been compromised by not have any association with Mr. Comey, Ms. Clinton, Ms. Lynch and/or Mr. Obama.

Further, it should be noted that the “interim” Director does not have to be approved by Congress or anyone, and can immediately begin cleaning house at the FBI of all Comey/Clinton/Obama minions, initiating investigations of the Clintons, Clinton Fund, violations of intelligence security and safeguard and classification laws and statutes by members of the Obama administration, another Federal crimes and political corruption – this can more easily be described as “draining the Swamp.” Likewise, using Mr. Comey’s files they can be fairly certain they are not getting another Comey-type as an “interim,” and they do not have to wait through the political circus of appointing a new permanent “Director” by way of Senate approval. Most of the heavy lifting on rooting out FBI corruption and starting investigations into the swamp will be done by the “interim” before a new director is appointed. At this point, I suspect the Trump administration believes, in not knows that the approval FBI Director process will be slow and tedious, so there is no political interference with the housecleaning that is starting.

In one masterstroke, President Trump has eliminated a truly toxic and dangerous enemy to his administration and our country, dealt a horrendous blow to the Clinton/Obama and deep state machines, begun the restoration of the integrity of the FBI and the DoJ, and gained incredible ammunition to begin hunting the foul creatures in the swamp. Moving forward I am confident that the Integrity of the FBI and the Justice Department will be restored by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and the 15,000 honest, dedicated, and hard-working agents of the FBI.
