Unintentional Comedy at the House Intelligence Committee Hearings
Mainly FBI Director James Comey trying to keep a straight face. 😑
- •Comey "We try very hard not to engage in any 'isms' of any kind including McCarthyism.'When asked if the FBI was engaged in McCarthyism.
- •"The department has no information that supports those tweets""Fake, fake, fake, fake" Elaine Benes. Concerning President Trump's tweets accusing President Obama of illegal wiretapping. See below
- •"I'm not going to try to characterize those 'tweets' themselves"No individual has the authority to ask for wiretapping to occur. "It's a rigorous, rigorous process that involves all three branches of government and it's one we've lived with since the '70's." 🕺🏿
- •"Watergate was a series of break-ins and coverups"NOT comparable to Watergate in any way as described by Pres. Trump in his accusatory tweet. Referred to as Mr. Trump here 😏
- •Comey disputes ALL claims there was any wiretapping at Trump Towers.
- •F.B.I. Director James Comey Is Fired by TrumpRemember Sessions, who recused himself from Russia investigation, has fired the leader of that investigation, Comey. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/09/us/politics/james-comey-fired-fbi.html Though Comey's testimony had 'mistakes' this firing has worrisome overtones.
- •I know it's not really funny...but this cover 😱 Check out the 'pilot'. The plane is going down people.
