More evidence is emerging that former FBI Director James Comey used details gathered from confidential post-election transition briefings with then President Elect Trump to attempt to prove the discredited “Russia Collusion” conspiracy. As Fox News reports:
James Comey immediately shared details from a post-election briefing for then-President-elect Donald Trump with the FBI’s Russia team, according to the recently released inspector general’s report on the former bureau director’s actions — in the latest indication that traditional transition briefings were used to update the incoming president and his team, as well as gather intelligence for the ongoing FBI investigation.
The long-awaited report from Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz on Thursday said Comey violated bureau policies by drafting, leaking and retaining his memos documenting private discussions with the president.
The report also revealed new details about the FBI director’s actions at that time, including how Comey and his top deputies went to great lengths to confront Trump at a Jan. 6, 2017 meeting at Trump Tower with the salacious and unverified accusations contained in the dossier, which had been funded by Democrats and drafted by British ex-spy Christopher Steele…
After Comey revealed the dossier claims to Trump, the report said, he observed the president’s reactions and quickly documented them for investigative purposes in a record now known as Memo 1.
It’s hard to see this as evidence of anything other than a pure attempt at treason by Comey and his deep state allies.
