Countdown To Comey Testimony

On May 16, 2017, the New York Times reported on a memo James Comey, the fired FBI Director, had written to himself. The Times hadn’t actually seen Comey’s memo. A secret source read part of it to the New York Times reporter. [1]

On Thursday, June 8th, we might finally hear what Mr. Comey himself has to say about this alleged memo. Does the memo even exist? And what exactly does it say? At 10 am there will be an open session with Comey. In the afternoon there will be a closed session with the former FBI Director. [1]

One of the radio shows reported yesterday that CNN was featuring an onscreen countdown clock, which told the hours, minutes, and seconds until the former FBI Director testified. The soap opera excitement builds until Thursday, followed by a Full Moon on Friday and the inevitable cliffhanger until Monday.

The Senate panel has pledged “aggressive questioning” of Comey. [2]

On May 9, 2017, President Donald Trump wrote a letter to Comey. He later tweeted, “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!” [2] This implies that the White House has a taping system which records conversations there. Does the White House have a taping system? Can those tapes be subpoenaed?

In the old Watergate soap opera, President Richard Nixon had a taping system in the White House. There was a huge uproar when this was discovered and a fierce battle between the White House and Judge John Sirica over release of the tapes ensued.

As opening acts before the big Comey event of Thursday, possible warm-up performances will be from Dan Coats (Director of National Intelligence), Admiral Mike Rogers (NSA Director), Andrew McCabe (acting FBI Director), and Rod Rosenstein (deputy Attorney General). [2]

The secret sources have been plaguing President Trump for some time now. Where have all the leaks been coming from? Today comes news that the U.S. Department of Justice has charged one Reality Leigh Winner with removing classified material from a government facility located in Georgia. The charges were announced less than an hour after The Intercept published a top-secret document from the U.S. National Security Agency. [3]
