The tale of former FBI Director James Comey is a twisted one. Was he secretly using FBI assets to support one or the other of the two candidates for president? What did he know about the alleged interference by Russia in our election? Why was he fired by President Trump? What revelations can we expect to hear from him?
As his testimony before the Senate has begun, there is hope that we might get answers to at least a few of those questions. This depends, of course, on the senators asking the right questions, as well as Mr. Comey being forthright in his replies. We’ve certainly seen plenty of the opposite when individuals such as Hillary Clinton appeared to give testimony.
One of the most important questions that demands to be answered is from where have the leaks originated. It turns out from his testimony that Comey, himself was the source. He is the one who gave the orders to release certain details to the press.
“Fired FBI Director James Comey told the Senate Intel Committee on Thursday that he asked a friend of his to leak to a memo he kept regarding his conversation with President Trump to the press.”
That, and the information that follows should give you a good idea why he should have been dismissed.
“Comey admitted this after Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), asked him why he kept the memos. She then asked if he ever shared any of them outside the DOJ.
“Of course this was leaked to the New York Times. They ran with the story that Trump was pushing Comey to drop the Flynn investigation.
“Daniel C. Richman confirmed to the Washington Examiner that he was Comey’s friend at Columbia. He has been referred to in the New York Times as a “longtime confidant and friend of Mr. Comey’s,” and his bio at Columbia’s website lists him as an “adviser to FBI Director James B. Comey.”

This whole investigation on which the Democrats have placed so much hope would seriously damage President Trump may turn out to have the opposite effect as the truth is revealed.
What the Democrats have meant for harm might very well vindicate the president and shut down the crazy calls for impeachment by the equally crazy Congresspersons like Maxine Waters. That is if she figures out what is going on.
