James Comey interview with GeorgePage 1 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
Anyone see the interview? What do you think of it and Comey? I couldn't believe he was trying to portray himself as a regular nice guy. That's not what got him into his position in the FBI as the director.

It was very illuminating with that decisive comment he made about the Russians and Trump. I always love a strong statement that includes the word "possible"☺:

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Do you think the Russians have something on Donald Trump?

JAMES COMEY: I think it's possible. I don't know. These are more words I never thought I'd utter about a president of the United States, but it's possible.

as a prosecutor, he should avoid strong statements without facts to back them up...however...if you see smoke, you shouldn't be afraid to suggest there may be a fire, either. I like the part about the public teaching itself to eventually ignore what's going on. Our attention span is about 5 minutes of talking points. we get numb too quickly.

James Comey interview with George

I agree with those who say Comey neither did himself nor the Mueller investigation very many favors with both the interview and the book. Not because he didn’t sound credible – everything he said during the interview and what I know of the book and what he has been saying in public for the past year sounds completely authentic, and there is absolutely no reason to doubt someone for whom no one prior to Trump ever accused of being dishonest, especially when it’s his word and behaviors vs. multiple proven liar Trump’s.

Rather, mostly I say this because Comey sounds almost as petty and self-involved as Trump. It might have been more boring, but he would have been just better off sticking to the facts instead of his opinions and observations, particularly about Trump’s appearance. Yeah, his hair is a joke, his skin is orange and his hands are not large. But that’s for late night talk show hosts (and occasional presidential debate opponents) to deal with, not the former highest ranking law enforcement officer in the country. I just think those “humorous” asides put Mueller in a bad position and give Trump and his allies even more ammunition to discredit Comey’s obstruction of justice testimony – after all, Comey is the #1 witness to that charge. In the end, if a jury’s involved, I don’t think it would matter much: even most Trump supporters would vote to convict if it came down to the credibility of Comey vs. Trump. But there will not be a jury trial over this, but rather a congressional political trial, and even supposed open-minded congresspeople will take into consideration Comey’s post-tenure behavior.

There was also the matter of his questionable decision-making that in some cases actually did look a little partisan, despite the fact that he is obviously a hardcore Republican (his wife is another matter). There was absolutely no reason for him to admit that he announced the re-opening of the Clinton email investigation because he felt sure that she was going to win so it’d be okay to do it (ironically, that “possibly” cost her the election). There’s no doubt he was in a bad position and almost anything he did would bring out some hounds from one side or the other, but his belief that Clinton was going to win so it didn’t matter should never have factored in or reached the light of day. Arguably, admissions like those strengthened the argument that he should have been fired for questionable decision-making – I mean, Bill Clinton fired Louis Freeh for far less. Fortunately, Mueller and everyone else in the world has Trump on record as saying on national TV that he fired Comey to obstruct the Russian collusion probe, so the “official” reasons for his firing may not mean that much.

Of course, with Trump in so deep with Cohen’s tawdry business that likely involves wire fraud, bank fraud, money laundering, campaign finance violations, paying off Playmates to have abortions and whatever the hell Hannity was up to besides violating his Fox contract for not personal connections discussed on air, I’m not the least bit concerned about Trump NOT being cited for an impeachable charge, Russian collusion and obstruction be damned. It’s starting to become extreme “Hillaryous” that so many voted against Clinton because of how corrupt they thought she was, because the level of corruption they got as a result of that vote makes the Harding and Grant administrations look like choir boy conventions. And Democrats who aren’t running in the midterms as being “checks” on Trump’s corruption are tossing out the best bullet in their revolver.

On a side note: I'm glad you're still around, but man, has this message board become lame with all the deletion craze lately. Between Cohen and Hannity and Syria bombing and the most-corrupt-of-corrupt Pruitt, this forum would have been humming a year ago, whereas the past week there's barely been a peep, and that is very sad and depressing.

I did watch the interview.
I was also taken back by his placid demeanor....he came off as apologetic sometimes.
I would think anyone dealing with Trump or in charge of multiple people would need a stronger personality...jmo.

I agree with Mustang, he probably has to be careful on just what he should say.
Even though he is now an EX FBI director...he knows more than we do and would have to be careful what he discloses.

I am still confused on his reasoning for announcing 11 days before the election about Hillary on the e-mail probe.
I personally think it effected her votes but she may have lost anyways...with all the corruption going on. :-)
But...for the most part there was nothing new to be learned.
The way he talks of how Trump is...is nothing new. Been said before.

I agree with his assessment of Trump....that he is morally unfit. Being wealthy all his life...probably far more than the normal person can fathom..

I agree about the deletions being ridiculous.
-But I feel the bigger problem is; that for Trump, ^^^ that's just an average week.
I'm pretty sure the same levels of "indignation fatigue" must be happening all over America, (and elsewhere).

Any one of trump's many scandals would have sunk previous politicians.

Over here, if it's proven that an mp knowingly lied, either to the public, or to parliament, they're gone.
One resigned recently because he'd "touched a woman's leg",
another; not because it was revealed (by a policemen) that they'd found porn on his computer, but because he lied about not having been told that they'd found it, -when he had been.

Trump lies almost every day, either about something trivial, or about calling honest reporting of the facts; "fake news".
Or by lying about Amazon, or the WaPo.
And seemingly "gets away with it".
He (ironically) dismisses ALL of his accusers simply as "liars".
I think he's turning America into a corrupt, nepotistic, autocratic kleptocracy.

"Christian evangelists" seem to feel that his opposition to change and "gender politics" is worth the "sacrifice" of morality, in general.
They campaign against abortion, but support a republican party led by a bunch of ageing sexual deviants, like Broidy, who paid $1.6 million to have an abortion, and keep quiet.
-Through trump's attorney.

They support a corrupt orange womaniser, who describes his own daughter as a "piece of arse", ogles at teenagers changing, and brags about that, and the impunity that he believes that wealth gives him, to assault women.

If pictures emerged of Trump openly masturbating all over a picture of the "virgin mary", in the Oval Office, they would still "give him a mulligan".
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mulligan_(games)

I suppose over the years, with the literally tens of thousands of rapists priests, they've got used to it.
-As long as they say they're sorry, and they "swear on the holy bible" that they'll never do it again.... and again......and again....
Especially not in "church".
Did all those "priests", who raped all those children, really believe that "god was watching them" do that?

America is losing the ability to discern wrongdoing, because they see it every day, in the white-lies house.
Was the #me too movement just about the president's past sexual assaults?

"The end justifies the means",
"you can't make an omelette without breaking eggs",
"when you're famous, you can do anything you like to them".....
and other platitudes.

Trump IS the "bad apple", and he's causing the whole barrel to rot, from the inside,
America is becoming immune to the stench, funny how quickly that can happen....
He's like an infection.
Meuller is the antidote.

"One day, this too shall pass".
When it does, and later, when the film finally comes out, I think Tommy Lee Jones would play an excellent lugubrious Meuller.

Could it possibly be that Comey is deliberately enflaming Trump with personal comments because, knowing the psychology of mob boss mentalities, he feels that if he can enflame him to the point of tweeting and spouting off in front of audiences more and more, the more likely he is to expose himself to his detriment? It's like Trump feels he's a Teflon Don. And we all know how that ended for John Gotti.

Here's a brief overview. The style, behind the scenes actions of others (not the crimes themselves) and potential results are similar: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Gotti

I always love a strong statement that includes the word "possible"

For colluding with Russians tampering with an election -- even the "possible" being attached is strong. Think about it...

Sally: Did your BF have sex with that one girl he was seeing before you two met and started dating 2 years ago?
Marcy: It's possible (shrug).

Sally: Did your BF have sex with 3 Guys on video and send the tape to his parents last week??
Marcy: Ya know, I hate to say it... from everything I gathered -- yeah, it's actually possible he did (cry)!

as a prosecutor, he should avoid strong statements without facts to back them up

He's not a prosecutor, and he's not working for the FBI anymore... and either way, can't give all that out, since he's not working on the investigation. A reporter can ask a detective "Did X do Y?", and the detective can respond that due to all the evidence, unfortunately, it is possible -- and the reporter can't call foul because he's not doling out the evidence to outline the hows/whys, while it's still under investigation. :)

What's helping the rotting apples rot more is VP Pence-Mr. "I would never be in the same room or have dinner with a woman unless my wife was with me"-high and mighty Christian man. It's not what Pence is doing, but what Pence is NOT doing that seems wrong.

Trump is doing everything that's totally "unchristian"-constantly lying, constantly insulting anyone and everyone, history of having affairs and groping women against their will, openly expresses hatred of non-white people, and so on. His screw-ups and evil behavior could fill a book.

Yet, Pence just goes along with it, and defends him. Does Pence buy into Trump's statements, when Trump said all of the women who accused him of sexual misconduct are all liars, Trump doesn't know who Stormy Daniels is, and any news that shows Trump in a bad way is all fake news? If Pence is a true Christian, why isn't he speaking out and try to do something about it to steer Trump away from horrible, unchristian behavior? Why is he just being a shadow in the background, doing the "I know nothing" Sgt Shultz routine? The way things are going, the rats are jumping ship, and it will soon only be Pence and Trump left in the White House. Everybody else is either fired or bailed out when they had the chance. What would really throw things into a loop is if Pence would someday get insulted by Trump-which is very possible and likely-and decide to jump ship as well.

>>>darn good point, er, rhetorical question, cham. Chump is a for-certain narcissist, and Comey might think its a bait worth floating out there. Hawking, you too brought up good points, and here's someone who agrees:

"James Comey is starting to remind me of Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. And I don’t mean that as a compliment, even though I served as a foreign policy adviser to Rubio’s presidential campaign. In late February 2016, after finishing behind candidate Donald Trump in a few early primaries, Rubio got desperate. Trump was mocking his height by calling him “Little Marco,” so the senator decided to retaliate by making fun of Trump’s “small hands” and his “spray tan.” Rubio elicited laughs at a campaign rally by saying: “You know what they say about guys with small hands.” It was a horrible miscalculation for which Rubio later apologized. The Don Rickles act works for President Trump because he’s a reality-TV star, but it doesn’t work for his critics, because they are expected to be more serious. By slinging insults with Trump, they are simply reducing themselves to his sordid level."

"Now Comey is heading down Rubio Road as he promotes his memoir, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.” Trump calls the former FBI director an “untruthful slime ball,” “a proven LEAKER & LIAR” and “the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!” Comey, in turn, calls Trump a serial liar who is a “stain” on those around him, who treats women like “meat,” and who is “morally unfit to be president.” He even mocks Trump for the size of his hands and his orange skin color. In a sense, Trump is falling into Comey’s trap by helping him to sell his book – just as he previously did with Michael Wolff when he unloaded fire and fury on his book, “Fire and Fury.” But Comey is also falling into Trump’s trap by inadvertently feeding Trump’s narrative that all of his legal troubles are the result of a “Deep State” plot by FBI agents out to get him. As Trump tweeted on Friday: “No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!”

"In fact, Comey did as much as anyone to get Trump elected with three ethically dubious decisions: He publicly lambasted Hillary Clinton for her handling of her emails, despite his decision not to recommend criminal prosecution. He publicly announced 11 days before the election that he was reopening the email investigation. And, while being so forthcoming about Clinton’s legal troubles, he refused to disclose during the campaign that the FBI was investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin."

(admittedly, I too agree with that last sentence. If Comey was going to break protocol, he should have covered both candidates)

"But Comey’s invective will now feed the crackpot conspiracy theory of Trump partisans who are convinced that an organization made up primarily of conservative, white, middle-aged male cops is out to get a Republican president. "

"Comey should remember that revenge is a dish best served cold. By heating up his dispute with the president prematurely, he is potentially undercutting the work of another former FBI director who is now investigating the president. Special counsel Robert Mueller has been smart enough to keep his own mouth shut: He hasn’t said one word for or against Trump in public. But now Trump will try to unfairly tar him as a “friend” of Comey’s who must be pursuing a political vendetta against him."

b] I couldn't believe he was trying to portray himself as a regular nice guy. That's not what got him into his position in the FBI as the director.

And yet, the director of a much more sinister agency, the CIA, is regularly described and accepted as as *nice guy.*

Comey has many things in the future to answer for, many not good for him. One of his "heroes" is James Clapper. Clapper perjured himself a few years back. That is just one thing that is going to come back, not only for Comey but for Clapper and many others in this democratic scandal.

Mustang & NG, if a person wants to talk possibilities, the list would be endless. After burying Hillary for this election with the possibility of her misusing her computer and emails, now he's moving on to Trump to discredit him for the next election. I just laughed at his interview. He said it very fast a few times about the peeing incident in Russia. It didn't anger me, I found it to be hysterical because it is a point where he thought he would drive it home to embarrass Trump, but if he really understood him, Trump doesn't care, LOL. Trump is President and Comey is just one more unemployed person. Just like Hillary, he had to be quick to write this book while he is still in the limelight and can get Democrats to buy it. I loved how his wife said she really wanted a female president, like that should really be the basis for voting for someone.

Hawking, Comey knows how to play at appearing to be credible, and that's by telling some obvious truths, then you pepper that with falsely based beliefs.

So Hannity goes a bender last night (while CNN and MSNBC were honoring Mrs. Bush) in defense of himself not disclosing that he was one of Cohen's clients until Cohen was forced to do so. That whole mess, as with all Trump-related fiascos, makes little sense to begin with, as Judge Nap even pointed out: Hannity claims that he wasn't really Cohen's client so he shouldn't have to disclose it, but he also asked for attorney-client privilege status for his discussions with Cohen AND asked Cohen not to disclose he was a client! You can't have it both ways, dude! Though I guess it's understandable why he'd be ashamed to be Cohen's client if all of Cohen's other current clients are guys who paid porn stars and Playmates to keep their mouths shut about the affairs they had with them.

But as that relates to this thread: after being taken to task on his own show by his "friend" Dershowitz for not disclosing that he was Cohen's client before defending him (I watched that live and it was SO funny, Hannity completely caught off guard) and after Fox News admitted they were surprised as anyone to discover he was Cohen's client (but weren't going to punish him for blatant ethical "journalism" violations even though they've shockingly punished plenty of others for similar behavior), Hannity went off on the "mainstream media" about how hypocritical they were for criticizing him, starting with Steph's interview with Comey -- "Did George disclose that he was Bill Clinton's communications director before he started the interview with Comey?" I tend to doubt he did. Because that was 25 years ago and it's extremely common knowledge. Whereas NOBODY knew Hannity was one of Cohen's clients until this week when Cohen was forced to admit it in a courtroom days after Hannity went on a tirade defending him. It is not even close to the same thing. I mean, does Diane Sawyer have to disclose that she was on Nixon's communications staff every time she does a political interview? Actually, if it relates to Nixon, she often does, despite it being completely pointless because it is such common knowledge and many career moves ago. Anyway, I don't know if I've ever seen Hannity so unhinged. Makes you really want to know what he and Cohen were talking about and what's in those tapes. Even several of Hannity's own anchormates have said as much the past few days.

“Could it possibly be that Comey is deliberately enflaming Trump with personal comments because, knowing the psychology of mob boss mentalities, he feels that if he can enflame him to the point of tweeting and spouting off in front of audiences more and more, the more likely he is to expose himself to his detriment?”

Comey himself seems to be suggesting that he was just being a creative writer and trying to get the reader a full feel of the atmosphere that he was in. As a semi-professional creative writer, I get that, but Comey’s not writing novels here. It’s not even really an autobiography. Arguably he should have done like Louis Freeh and wait a few years on this kind of book, at least until the legal matters and Trump’s presidency had been sorted out. On the other hand, as Stormy points out, you gotta strike while the iron is hot – in 5 years, maybe nobody’ll care. I’m all about somebody needling Trump as much as the next guy, but as the #1 witness to Trump’s obstruction, I felt like Comey needed to play this situation in a much droller fashion until it didn’t matter anymore (after the trials, impeachment, whatever).

“Trump doesn't know who Stormy Daniels is”

I’m not sure how many Trump official spokespeople or media mouthpieces have claimed this, but they all need to qualify it – as Stormy herself said before she thought she was allowed to talk, it’s pretty obvious they knew each other, from not one but several pictures on multiple occasions they’ve taken together (ditto for McDougal, and Barbara Moore for that matter). Maybe they should be saying “he knew Stormy Daniels but didn’t know her in the Biblical sense.” Still false, but at least very remotely plausible.

“It didn't anger me, I found it to be hysterical because it is a point where he thought he would drive it home to embarrass Trump, but if he really understood him, Trump doesn't care, LOL.”

You’re going to have to give me a substantial amount of proof that Trump doesn’t care what people think of him and that all of his THOUSANDS of PUBLIC actions to the contrary over his ENTIRE LIFE are just him doing an Oscar-worthy performance. You may be like, “But for years he was proud of being a cheater and womanizer and didn’t care that anyone knew” – yeah, when it benefitted him. When you are at your current station in life because of evangelical Christians, suddenly you want a completely different reputation, one that doesn’t jive whatsoever with your previous preferred reputation. On an ironically similar note: “Hawking, Comey knows how to play at appearing to be credible, and that's by telling some obvious truths, then you pepper that with falsely based beliefs.” So Comey’s also been acting his entire life? All the world’s just a stage to you, huh? Just exactly how is it that you determine when somebody is being himself? Not just these famous people – anybody.

Since when are lawyers thought of as people with standards?

Sure, Trump doesn't like to be attacked, but what Comey said was old news.

I can tell you that Trump is not like a mobster. I've known mobsters, and I've known people that unfortunately were killed by them, from those that were made to disappear to those that were made examples of by what they did to them. One of the people I knew was wrapped up in carpeting and thrown in an empty lot, known as the mafia dumping grounds. He survived, but stuck around and was later found with his body parts strewn along a hwy, his fingernails pulled out, and his head compacted. You know how it's said they'll put you in cement shoes? That's not a joke or a myth.

It is Hillaryous that Sean Insanity can see conspiracy in a plain donut, but he can't imagine why people are laughing at him now. Of course, Faux doesn't want to kill their golden goose either--he gets the Tinfoil Hat Society to tune in. Another case of Trumpanzees inability to live up to standards they hold others to. Still, there is always hope that Sean Insanity might finally be so dopey that even they can see it. Meanwhile, Pompeo decides a vacation in North Korea might help his chances in Congress. It is nice to see the WH copy Democrats like Clinton and Obama in a search for success.

"you're going to have to give me proof Chump doesn't worry about what people think"

>>>as a narcisissist, he cares. What he lacks is the shame to worry what people may be thinking....just so long as they ARE thinking about him, that's good enough. And let's all be happy that when Stormy Daniels came out with a drawing of the mystery man, he wasn't OJ Simpson :) Its nice the usual boogeyman wasn't chosen for this.

How come the Hannity show is on Fox News channel but he's not a real news program.
Did you see his interview with Ted Koppel...too funny.
Sorry, if it's been mentioned. I didn't read all today.
https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=ted+koppel&view=detail&mid=B7AFBEDF662F170C5799B7AFBEDF662F170C5799&FORM=VIRE

Everyone is predicting Trumps lawyer will flip on him.
But why wouldn't he just take his chances...if Trump can pardon him?

There's no doubt Trump is narcissist in my mind.
He never quits bragging about himself.

It's hard to say, but if Cohen knows what it is that Trump's so fearful of being uncovered, but doesn't know if whatever that is ccould possibly see Trump impeached prior to charges being laid against Cohen, Trump would lose the power to impeach. Cohen may not want to take the gamble that timelines would work in his favour. Most devious, sneaky people are only "loyal" when it serves their purpose. Even mobsters who have legitimate fear of death from a hit if they flip will still flip rather than face the prospect of long prison sentences.

A narcissist and an alpha male both have the quality of charging ahead, not being paralyzed by past failures. But a narc will take failures personally (a rejected alpha for instance, would say, "her loss", and a rejected narc would waste time convincing the world it was..and continue to talk about it). A narc would actually try to dominate an alpha. A narc makes everything about them.

It's a case of hitting the post button, then being notified I'm not signed in, then my post disappears from the screen, so I go back till it shows up, then hit post again, and suddenly I'm faced with two posts. Guess I could walk into my office to send a post from my computer at such times, but yanno, that would take the effort of getting up off my a$$.

I've encountered that having to go back, log in, back back to the text I wrote too. At that point I copy that entire post, then just paste it into a brand new 'post reply' to get around the double. No biggie, just an fyi.

It's hard to say, but if Cohen knows what it is that Trump's so fearful of being uncovered, but doesn't know if whatever that is ccould possibly see Trump impeached prior to charges being laid against Cohen, Trump would lose the power to impeach. Cohen may not want to take the gamble that timelines would work in his favour. Most devious, sneaky people are only "loyal" when it serves their purpose. Even mobsters who have legitimate fear of death from a hit if they flip will still flip rather than face the prospect of long prison sentences.


How many are already betting on Michael Cohen flipping on Comrade Spanky?
