Comey's new disclosure

proves firing him was and is the correct decision. Comey is now alleging Pres. Trump asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn. Big problems for Comey. Comey's allegation is serious, as it alleges the President is guilty of obstructing justice. If true, why did Comey not bring this to light when it happened? By not taking any action, at the time, this alleged obstruction happened, Comey failed to do his duty.

It makes one wonder how much Comey let go regarding HRC's mishandling of classified material, because he was willing to play ball with the executive branch.

In light of Comey's actions, I think all American's would support for an independent prosecutor to investigate HRC's crimes relating to her mishandling of classified material.

I have no wonder.
Comey deserves to be in prison for obstruction of justice.

Thank you. I forgot to add the above to my post. If what Comey is alleging is true, he is complicit in obstructing justice, since he took no action against the President at the time.

The only evidence, per NYT, so far is Comey saying, as head of the FBI, he committed a crime.

The hypocrisy on this board is amazing. If Obama had done half the stuff Trump has done and said, you would be DEMANDING his impeachment.

If Trump is guilty of anything, why didn't Comey charge him?
He swore an oath to uphold the Law and the Constitution didn't he?

When it ALL comes out, the evidence will show that as Sec of State, Hillary did commit high crimes which were covered up by the Obama Admin, with Obama being complicit with Hillary AND with Islamic Terrorism......So, who's the real hypocrite, Maddog??......As Trump stated after becoming POTUS and seeing the real carnage hidden from the American public, "What a MESS"!!

What has the President actually done that is illegal? I know people are imagining all types of acts, but where are the facts.

Pres. Trump campaigned on the promise to ally with Russia to defeat ISIS. So I see nothing wrong with him sharing intel. Also, it is in the President's power to declassify intel and share it with anyone he wants.

Did you forget Obama wanted to partner with Russia to fight ISIS? What happened? Basically the same thing. The DOD, the military industrial complex didn't like the idea made sure it did not happen.

What this shows is there is a shadow government and they are afraid of the President and are placing the security of the U.S. in jeopardy to keep their hidden agenda.

Exactly. Comey is (pick one), totally incompetent, ignores his duties, or kept evidence secret for blackmail purposes. Either way he is not fit to head the FBI.

I have mixed feelings on this one.

On the one hand you can view this is obstruction of justice, but if you read what it says, it sounds more like a casual conversation between two people discussing the future of a person they both agreed was a good guy.

It was sort of like "why don't you just let him slide. he's a good guy".

It was not "let him slide or else".

The way it is being reported. It is being reported that Comey felt it to be a request to compromise the investigation.

He did nothing illegal.

You can question his judgement, but he was apparently well within his legal right to decide that the upside of dealing with Russia was greater than keeping silent.
