Comey’s Testimony on Huma Abedin Forwarding Emails Was Inaccurate - ProPublica

FBI officials have privately acknowledged that Comey misstated what Abedin did and what the FBI investigators found. On Monday, the FBI was said to be preparing to correct the record by sending a letter to Congress later this week. But that plan now appears on hold, with the bureau undecided about what to do.

ProPublica is reporting a story on the FBI’s handling of the Clinton emails and raised questions with government officials last week about possible inaccuracies in Comey’s statements about Abedin.

Clarice, I'm sure there were no overt authorizations. There are all kinds of ways to be slippery.

CH, it IS odd, but the whole piece is.

Hanson simply cann't bring himself to say a single unqualified word of praise for President Trump, about anything. Every paragraph, there's a little dig, I suppose to remind everyone that his toga is still clean.

Speaking of the UN, I hope DJT has a better plan of dealing with that nest of scum than just sending Nikki Haley to point out what hypocrites and lowlifes they are, which is appreciated after the last eight years of gutlessly capitulating to those vermin but still doesn't effectively deal with the real problem.

Terrible news about Bob Owens, it's hard to imagine what someone is going through, but I think he had a wife and kids. I learned a lot from him over the years.

And when does dear sweet Huma get officially tied to a terrorist organization, which has to be the fattest hanging curveball the GOPe Caseys at the bat have ever encountered?

Which, of course, must have been their desired intent when desperately expanding the access to classified info. It doesn't appear to have worked, however, given their continued absurdity about the Russia nothingburger.

Trump's patience is slowly-but-surely squeezing the life out of Comey, the guy I just didn't want to believe failed us this spectacularly.

That said, the most satisfyingly pathetic moment yesterday was Clapper's line that unclassified ≠ leaking. That comment, alone, made yesterday a useful exercise.

Marlene

Dave,I did a quick perusal of the Boston Herald and the double murder of the doctors is front and center. The DA and police are feuding? I'll be listening to Howie Carr this afternoon,maybe he'll have more info. This is a very weird story.

jimmyk

Am I the only person who thinks that's a very odd comparison?

No, you're not. A better comparison for Hillary blaming Comey would be O.J. blaming Marcia Clarke for his bad reputation.

Marlene

When everyone in the room burst out laughing at Clapper,were they laughing at him or with him?

henry

With him... they all leak like sieves.

Janet 🚬

The only reason Comey or anyone is involved is because SoS Hillary Clinton set up her own private computer system.
Clinton purposefully made the choice to avoid FOIA. It is all on Hillary Clinton.

Think of the taxpayer money spent on this fiasco because Hillary wanted to be sneaky.
Time, money, & effort wasted.
She should have to reimburse American taxpayers.

Janet 🚬

With him... they all leak like sieves.

I agree.

Levin: Flynn was hated by Zippy because he was the only Pentagon person who pointedly criticized the excuse for a strategy against ISIS.

Great interview!

That laughter was such a beautiful, clarifying moment. It immediately juxtaposed DC with the nation-at-large.

I don't think people around the nation were laughing and the man truly told on himself in that moment, did he not?

https://consortiumnews.com/2017/05/08/turning-gen-flynn-into-road-kill/

Destroying General flynn whose "crime" as far as I can tell was speaking from abroad on a mobile phone to Kisleyk in a general discussion about sanctions. Now, how could that be an occasion for "blackmail" although it was improvident? Trump had reason to fire him, but to suggest there was something blackmailable out of this seems too far.

jimmyk

Did anyone ask Yates why Flynn's security clearance wasn't yanked by Obama?

Old Lurker

RG: "I don't think people around the nation were laughing and the man truly told on himself in that moment, did he not?"

Too big a broom, RG.

There are three sorts of people around the nation: Those who saw what they did and cheer; Those too uninformed to know or care; Those who already hold Congress and the Uniparty in such contempt that the show with Clapper & Yates delivered exactly what they expected: nuthin.

Captain Hate

I wish Pence would pipe up about whether or not Flynn deceived him on anything important because his name is thrown out so much that, were it me, I'd want to set the record straight.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

No.

Both Trudeau and the Mexican president (can't remember his name, brain freeze) called Trump and asked him to renegotiate when the rumor of the withdrawal was floated.
Not only was it not secret, but the White House announced it.

I think it more likely that he was taking a phone call from someone in the Middle East regarding upcoming stuff on his trip.

In fact, I think he is doing a lot of phone meetings as his schedule has been very light the last couple of days.

YOU LIE!!!

Kasich is a good Christian. Has compassion for his poor. Tends to them like JESUS would..

Marlene,

"Elections have consequences". Kerry Healey was attacked for running ads about how Deval Patrick (who appointed the judge who let the bank robber [and now, double murderer] off with only a 364 day sentence) was soft on crime. Patrick had been a NAACP defense lawyer for a cop-killer and got the death sentence reversed and the guy is now eligible for parole. And there's nothing we can do about the judge who let this latest guy off easy.

Spicy tweet from Dan Scavino that appears to be related to the 2:30 am concession call six months ago today.

Dan Scavino Jr.‏Verified account @DanScavino

Screen shot via @KellyannePolls cell phone- of Huma's call at 2:30amE....6 months ago. I have on video & will share that in the near future.

https://www.reddit.com/r/The_Donald/comments/6a66fy/screen_shot_via_kellyannepolls_cell_phone_of/

It was reported that Huma called Kellyanne at 2:30 am, they spoke for a short time, then the phones were handed to the candidates for a one-minute conversation in which Hillary conceded. This seems to indicate that perhaps there is more to the story.

Speculation on The_Donald is that Trump is sick of Russia-Comey-Yates-Clapper-Hillary-Zippy BS and is going to drop a bomb or two.

Maybe Hillary was yelling and throwing lamps in the background. Maybe she was drunk and slurring. Maybe she screamed at Trump. Maybe she never made it to the phone at all, and the Trump team was gracious enough to pretend.
