February 14, 2017, was a big day. According to testimony from fired FBI Director James Comey, on that Valentines Day President Donald Trump said that fired National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was a “good guy” and the president hoped that Comey might give Flynn a break.
Also on that momentous Valentines Day, The New York Times published an article which suggested the Trump campaign had colluded with the Russians. Stated Senator James Risch at the June 8th Senate hearing: “I remember, you talked with us shortly after February 14th, when the New York Times wrote an article that suggested that the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians.”
Risch asked Comey if he recalled reading the Times article and Comey replied that yes, he did.
Comey added that after reading the Times article he sought out both Republican and Democrat senators and informed them that the Times article was not factual.
RISCH: Okay. So again, so the American people can understand this, that report by the New York Times was not true. Is that a fair statement?
COMEY: In the main, it was not true. And again, all of you know this. Maybe the American people don’t. The challenge, and I’m not picking on reporters about writing stories about classified information, is the people talking about it often don’t really know what’s going on, and [the people who know what’s] going on are not talking about it. We don’t call the press to say, hey, you got that thing wrong about the sensitive topic. We have to leave it there.
The “people talking about it” are the “secret sources” (ss). The ss, the people talking about it, don’t really know what’s going on.
So when now the ss (secret sources) are bombarding The Washington Post with leaks possibly originating from the staff of Robert Mueller III, special counsel investigating Russiagate, they are “the people talking about it” who “don’t really know what’s going on.”
If the latest ss info given to Washington Post originates from the staff of Robert Mueller, then already Mueller is running a leaky boat.
On top of this, Russian president Vladimir Putin has now offered the fired FBI Director Comey political asylum in Russia! (See video clip hopefully viewable at top.) Was Putin just joking? But wasn’t Donald Trump “just joking” when he publicly said he hoped the Russians would release Hillary Clinton’s e-mails?
As you can see, this summer’s Russiagate entertainment is becoming extraordinarily complex. The plot thickens. But who is writing the script?
