New York Times Oversells ‘Comey’s Revenge’ Story

The New York Times reported Tuesday evening that President Donald Trump had a private conversation with former FBI director James Comey in which the president allegedly expressed his “hope” that Comey would “let go” of the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Flynn had reportedly resigned the day before.

It turns out that Comey documented the conversation in a memorandum, “part of a paper trail” he reportedly created to release later to tell his side of the story in the event things went awry — which, as the world now knows, it did.

    This is why you fire everybody, and I mean everybody, on Day 1.

    That’s too funny – He wrote it down!

    I have a memo of my own that says Comey was Anthony “Carlos Danger” Weiner’s wingman.

      I also fail to see how a memo made out to yourself is evidence of anything.

      He wrote what he wanted to write.

        if it’s a paper memo their is no way to prove that it was even written when he says it was and not after his firing.

        …and when he wanted to write it

      He seems to have failed to entered his memo into the FBI electronic database as required.

      So its a fake memo then
