Trump Calls For Arrest Of Former FBI Director James Comey

President Trump has called for the arrest of former FBI Director James Comey, following comments Comey made about the Russia investigation before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Trump: “Should Be Arrested On The Spot!”

Comey appeared in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday to take questions on his handling of the FBI’s role in the Russia investigation.

Replying to a tweet from D.C. journalist Paul Sperry, who noted that Comey had said that the investigation had been “done by the book,” President Trump tweeted on Wednesday afternoon that Comey should be “arrested on the spot!”

Graham: “Somebody Needs To Go To Jail Or Get Fired”

Despite Comey defending himself and his team with his “by the book” claims, the former FBI Director admitted to the Senate Committee that there were mistakes made.

NPR reports that Comey told lawmakers that if he knew then what he knows now, he would have taken “a more skeptical view” on one of the key surveillance requests that targeted a junior campaign aide of President Trump’s back in 2016.

Lindsey Graham, the chair of the panel, said that “somebody needs to go to jail or get fired,” over the FBI’s handling of the Carter Page warrant application process, one of the key sticking points of the inquiry.

Despite admitting to mistakes, Comey continued to defend the overall investigation to lawmakers, claiming that it had been properly justified and all involved had conducted themselves with the utmost professionalism.

Senator Ted Cruz strongly disagreed with Comey’s rosy view of the investigation.

Cruz argued that the investigation amounts to a scarlet letter on the history of the storied law enforcement agency:

Senator Mike Lee also piled on, claiming that Comey didn’t really know what was going on at all.

Comey Attacks Barr Over Investigation Criticism

CNN reported that Comey took a far stronger stance against Attorney General William Barr’s criticisms of the Russia investigation.

Barr had called the investigation “abhorrent.”

“I have no idea what on Earth he is talking about,” Comey said. He added:

This was an investigation, it was appropriately predicated and opened that had to be opened and it was in the main conducted in the right way, picked up by the special counsel, lead to the indictment of dozens of people, and a finding by your colleagues in the Senate that the head of Trump’s campaign was a grave counterintelligence threat to the United States of America because he was funneling in information to a known Russian intelligence officer.

“The notion that the attorney general believes that was an illegitimate endeavor to investigate that mystifies me,” Comey added.

President Trump, it seems, agrees with Bill Barr.

  • Okay! After awhile, it becomes 'meaningless'... trying to 'fix' the "stupid"! Especially, when they think that "They are the 'Smartest Guys In the Room!" By the way, the "Steel Dossier" seems to carry a lot of weight cause it was written by one of you, 'WHITE GUYS!' Amazing...since you 'LIE' "ON" everyone of color and 'LIE'... "FOR"... another 'con right' white! So.... Is it hard to swallow that maybe, TRUMP is considered, in some 'circles'...less than "Pure Blood"?! Eh, NEXUS...?

  • It was AMAZING watching as the "BONE SPUR!" 'DRAFT DODGER, TRUMP' would have the 'gall' to bring up BIDEN'S son as if he failed AMERICA and his Father for serving in the military and then becoming a victim of America's failure to its 'people'.... "The DRUG WAR". Being 'TRUE' to the Conservative Right Ideology being that the 'RULES" that govern 'normal' human beings, 'don't apply to them(Con Rights), TRUMP felt that he could attack BIDEN'S son and believed that he had an legitimate argument. However, as the 'STUPIDITY OF TRUMP' has on many other occasions revealed, "there's NO STUPIDITY...like CON RIGHT STUPIDITY!' What remains to be seen is will AMERICA see this offense for what it was or will AMERICA stand behind its 'weak kness' and try to make BIDEN ...share the blame to the DISGRACEFUL DISPLAY OF OUR CONSERVATIVE RIGHT POTUS...... during the 1st debate...???

  • There is a tight family member of Comey who historically handles/ed money and tax issues for the Clintons. That's been published years ago and buried..
    Think about that while you remember that Comey changed the wording of findings and documents himself just prior to going public so things would meet his needs when he announced that HRC did indeed seriously mishandle but didn't do it "on purpose".
    While that wasn't his job or purvue at all He definitely proved that she is too careless or too stupid to be trusted with national secrets.. That should've been enough to have disqualified her from even running for POTUS. But it wasn't what he needed to make happen, it wasn't the reciprocity he found himself owing her- and recall between Bills dealings with CHINA and her selling uranium, secrets off servers, etc- the library foundation, etc. they have scattered so much money and so much guilt by association.. across both parties.. the guy who decided to something other than his job.. who decided to take it on himself to "accquit her" without actually saying the words instead of presenting the findings without an opinion.. is next going to call up some of the others whom she and BJ Clinton have splattered guilt and compliticity upon to help him obfuscate things until hopefully all prosecution gives up (meaning until we quit chasing him)... ALL of this when considered in the totality of other things like statements about how Biden should not conceded the election mean we need 9 ju
