With all the conjecture surrounding former-FBI Director James Comey’s infamous note regarding President Trump’s efforts to quash the federal, Michael Flynn examination, anti-Trumpers should bring their attention to The Rebel-journalist Jack Posobiec’s recent, Twitter post. Posobiec’s Tweet actually avails a very interesting point (specifically one referencing early May’s Senate hearing):

To be technical and fair, “President Trump” or the like, wasn’t actually mentioned in Senator Mazie Hirono’s (D-HI) interrogative, but she did point to Comey’s ever encountering a superior halt a federal investigation.

On the off chance the above Tweet isn’t clear:

“So if the Attorney General or senior officials at the Department of Justice opposes a specific investigation, can they halt that FBI investigation?” Hirono asked.

“In theory yes,” Comey replied.

“Has it happened? Hirono pressed.

“Not in my experience,” Comey detailed. “Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that—without an appropriate purpose. I mean, where oftentimes they give us opinions that we don’t see a case there, and so you ought to stop investing resources in it,” Comey elaborated. “But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason—that would be a very big deal. It’s not happened in my experience,” Comey elaborated.

Unless Comey was foolish enough to lie under oath—take into account how many Trump haters are out there (and the president terminated him)—the former, FBI head stated it clearly and in full. (Can we please move on now?)
