White House disputes explosive report that Trump asked Comey to end Flynn probe

White-House-disputesThe White House grappled late Tuesday with the political ghost of James Comey, as an explosive new report said a memo written by the ousted FBI chief claimed President Trump once asked him to end the probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

The White House sharply disputed the report, as Democrats seized on it as potential proof of “obstruction” of justice.

According to The New York Times the memo quoted Trump as saying he hoped Comey could “let this go” with regard to Flynn.

The Times said Comey wrote the memo shortly after an Oval Office meeting on Feb. 14, the day after Flynn resigned from the Trump administration. The paper acknowledged it had not seen a copy of the memo, but said a Comey associate read parts of it to a reporter over the phone.

    It is getting to where the public does NOT believe ANY news stories because of all the false news and rumors they have been hearing or reading in all the Democratic controlled media. This is exactly why President Trump doesn’t trust them either. They have re-edited his words to mean the opposite of what he really said.

  • The Redhawk

    MESSAGE to the NY SLIME;
    1 ) If I hadn’t Heard COMEY respond to the VERY same Question by SEN Orono by saying “NOT IN MY TENURE” such question came up….re: Trump /Flynn or asking for “favor”
    2) May be next time anonymous calls you….HANG UP!!! and…..

    I might start reading your Rag of lies again ..Before using it to line my cat’s litter box

  • Luke

    The liberal lying cabob in Washington do this to prevent Trump from doing what the American people sent him to Washington to do, remember when you go to the voting booth, do not vote for a liberal liar

  • Dexter L. Wilson

    Even if it were true, everybody remember this was about the time that President Trump wanted Flynn on board. All of the trappings of the connections that Flynn had with the Russians Trump could have used. This was about the time that because Flynn was outed Trump could not add him to his cabinet. It Trump was trying to stop Comey it was only so he could use Flynn’s connections but someone in the Obama administration was afraid that that Flynn would give out too much info on the Obama activities. So they outed him. Comey was probably asked to stop the investigation so Trump could use Flynn. But remember there had been no time for Flynn to have done anything in the Trump White House and remember that Flynn had been in the employ of Obama long before any of this happened. Use your brain for something other than a hat rack.

  • Susan

    We love President Trump and so grateful for all his hard work and love for this country!!!

  • CrustyOldGeezer

    So…

    comey gets fired.

    comey writes out his ‘memo to self’, backdates it to some specific point in time, created the story the media wants to push.

    comey becomes the darling of the press….

    How long before comey is being paid millions for writing ‘memos’ to fit the agenda?

    How many more of the ‘shadow government’ types are out of the closet leaking exactly the same types of stories knowing, and possibly even working as co-creators of the ‘news’ with the “Distorter” that will present their tale as fact>

  • Timothy Thompson

    If this memo exists it more than likely was a plant, a signal that Comey left a ticking time bomb factual or a lie. It’s truly amazing that he didn’t come forward with that memo and accuisation on the day he was fired but somehow now it’s the New York Times Fake News extrordinare that breaks the story but didn’t see the actual memo in doing it. This could be another trial ballone that the memo shows up after the fact somehow. Comey was now reported to have been an inside plant by the Clintons to insure their activities wouldn’t be brought to light. He did his job without regard to his own reputation so this memo may be another fake news account.

  • barry spends 10 trillion not one word , fast and furious guns to the drug gangs in mexico no problem , release terrorist no problem , cash given to Iran no problem, screw DC with barney frank’s dick

  • Trump is going to stop the money going crooks ( politicians)

  • Rodney Steward

    The poor Dems. are so desperate to keep lies made up and going constantly to make the Rep. party look as bad as their own! But I don’t see the Reps turning into a party of activist, liars and thugs!

  • Jay Wendel

    There is a way to defeat these leftist “morons” and that is by not giving them any more fuel than they already have.
    It’s time to stop “tweeting” your emotions and making comments that can be easily misconstrued just because you feel you have the right or need to say “something”.
    Part of Obama’s downfall is that he saw himself as the smartest person in the room when the smartest person is often the one who says the least. That way, it is easy to determine the real dummy.
    Trump needs to stop the daily press briefings. It’s not like they care to report the facts that come out of these meetings anyway.
    Rather, let them submit their questions, review them with your trusted advisers then, reply to them in writing using a convenient method.
    If the “Press” doesn’t like it, tough. It is obvious the Liberal Media is not interested in printing the facts and will continue to create “fake news” in order to satisfy their radical agenda.
    Mr. Trump, it is time to stop playing to the insanity of the left.
    It’s time to focus on “Making America Great Again” and let your actions speak for themselves.

  • Rodney Steward

    More fake news from NYC, it’s about neck and neck between NYC and California on which is the worst state in the country!

    • Jo Ann Kowalski

      Mr stewart how about the skank kate bolduan taking on a Navy Seal. What us older women call garbage like that SKANKS n mrpoohead that u waste your time on is a complete radical moron hitlery obummer soros r all behind this fake news.

      • Rodney Steward

        I seen the skank on another news channel that was talking about it, I thought she was a POS lik most fakes, like mrpoohead also! Every time I make a comment he’s their with some kind of lying BS! How you doing Jo Ann, been a while my good friend, hope all is well! 🙂

  • gvette

    I find it most interesting that the DemonRATS want to investigate every square inch of Trump, but back 8 years ago did not look into Barry O, at all. Nancy P and others knew what he was. Hypocrisy?

  • Swampfox48

    Oh! Here we go again with these evil plant the seed things that the dccc can’t tell you that they have the evidence to prove anything! Just that someone told someone who wants money to say anything since they are being removed from their job because their boss got canned. These people need to be put into jail for doing this, as the laws say.

  • Askjrsk

    These losers in Washington DC are diligently attempting to discredit our President through ALINSKY playbook tactic 13. Embarrass belittle dehumanize the target. President Trump, I agree with Lou Donna must employ a much sharper more brilliant communications department Kimberly would be excellent So sick of the Mickey Mouse lame stream media propaganda. They’d do better doing their fishing in Alaska. Become fishermen and become useful to America, for a change.

  • maxx

    Considering Comey was an Obama appointment, worked in the same D.C. law firm as Loretta Lynch and another female Obama advisor before getting into government work and colluded with Lynch to find Clinton not guilty of any of the crimes she committed with her private server BS, it’s impossible for sane people to believe this guy knows what “truth” actually is. And this thing about Flynn is just the beginning. And as usual, the NYT is again running with totally unsubstantiated information. Not surprised at all. Trump’s only mistake was not firing Comey on Jan. 21st.

    • Askjrsk

      You hit the nail on the head Comey is a fraud a con a liar and is easy to see through. He looks like something on the rerun of the Munsters. Lurch Comey.

  • Rick D.

    “Obstruction of Justice”? Hmm…seems to me this is exactly what the DumbocRATS have been doing since Nov’16!! They are dead-set on doing whatever they can to prevent Trump from following through with his campaign promises. It’s obvious to any objective observer. The Libs are true POS!!

    • Askjrsk

      Spot on

      • Rick D.

        Thanks for support!! I don’t know about you, but I’m getting sick and tired of these bed-wetting liberals doing crap that if Conservatives did when Obozo was POTUS, they’d be accused of being a racist and un-American!!

        • Askjrsk

          Now is the time to go on the offensive The best defense is a good offense. Yes, they are sick and we can’t let that detour us, these inept losers. They are racist sexist haters murderers that gave us an illegitimate president, a flawed inept candidate. A candidate that made a hundred year old communist with a crooked wife that illegally bankrupted a college,became a new and breath of fresh air. Vt. a state where unemployment is high, dependent on social services, property devalues quickly and many walk away from their homes, this is the new America they want. They can stick it. We are not opiated and dumbed down. Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.

          • Rick D.

            Well said, my friend!!

  • BOC

    Hmm, Disgruntled fired ex-employee drops this one in the MSM’s lap a week after being axed. If it smells like fish it more than likely is, but then again it could be Hillary’s unused Who-Who. You decide.

    • Askjrsk

      Reprisal retribution sounds cheap and sleazy sounds just like Lurch Comey.

  • regulus30

    another liberal phantom story unsupported by another anonymous source;; these idiots think they will destroy Trump when in reality they are eating their own; no evidence it is called a lie/fabrication of liberal horse shit6666.

    • Askjrsk

      Phantom anonymous sources worked for Hitler and the third Reich in Nazi Germany. Comey would fit right in there the big LURCH. Hitler, even would have probably done away with the two faced loser.

      • regulus30

        I really am enjoying the left’s meltdown; we must remain committed to their destruction.

  • CrustyOldGeezer

    Over the last couple of dozen years, the media has become more shrill with each passing day and presenting “what-if’s” as “fact”, when in fact, what they ‘distort’ is nothing more than the rantings of an emotionally overstressed loser trying to be important.

    “FAKE NEWS” is well earned and DESERVED.

    They have done a lot of LYING o push their Anti American agenda.

    • maxx

      The MSM in the US is the propaganda arm of the democommie party like Pravda and Izvestiya were in the old USSR.

    • Askjrsk

      Certainly have as they work to destroy our country.

      • CrustyOldGeezer

        An idea straight from an email this morning:

        “We just had a great idea at our house. We should all get a burner phone
        and flood every media outlet with anonymous tips, anything you can think
        of, the further out there the better.”

        Now THAT is an excellent idea!

        “Anonymous sources say”….. if there are a few thousand, or tens of thousands of ‘anonymous sources’ are filling the news with stupid stuff the better.

        Make it sound plausible and destructive to Conservatives and the media will run it as fact.

        Get the media further from ‘reliable’ by the day and it won’t be long before NOBODY will believe them, not even democrats or jurors….

        • Askjrsk

          Good idea. Get imaginations going like the lame stream media. Goofy as Mickey Mouse, they are as well as owned by the rat

  • le3845

    So says the Washington Compost.

  • Danny

    What is the big picture? A media who hasn’t confirmed or seen this alleged memo, has often printed lies because of their hate of America and Trump. Then a Coney who hasn’t said anything but an unknown crony read this memo of an individual who has covered up espionage, treason, murder, IRS scandals, fast and furious, voter fraud, and many more felons. I would believe any one but MSM or a criminal who should be in prison.

    • Askjrsk

      These anti Americans are working against us. Comey belongs in prison. Comey testimony not even credible. Can’t believe the liar.

  • Webb

    Truth…
    Is there Truth in DC…?
    Does Liberal MSM care about Truth or just the downfall Of Trump…
    Trump needs to govern and not let DC, Liberal MSM OR EITHER PARTY get in the way!

  • Noah Rosenblum

    False story !!!
    NYTimes & The Washington Post is full of CRAP !!!

    • bobnstuff

      You don’t think that Trump would try to save a friend? Is any of this story out of character for Trump? You choose not to believe it because it damages the President not because he would never do it. Don’t you think Trump should have tried to help a friend?

      • chw2000

        Bob, get real and stop with the liberal spin. That’s all you do. The NYT and WP ARE full of crap and have printed many lies and untruths. But then that would mean that Trump was right………again!

        • Askjrsk

          Bobnballs likes to troll.

      • you’re barry saved a lot of guys at the bath houses with mouth to mouth

        • bobnstuff

          I’m sure you are an expert on that kind of mouth to mouth and wish that Obama was just like you.

          • bob ,now was that nice what happen to coexist ? thank God i’m not snow flake like you . But the truth hurts barry was the first gay fudge packer president

          • bobnstuff

            I thought you had an interest in that kind of thing since you brought up the subject. It must be on your mind. My guess you must be gay curious at the very least seeing that you care what others do,

          • are you one of the liberals that don’t know what bath room to use ? and one more thing did your mother have any children that lived

          • bobnstuff

            Me thinks you protest to much! Are you hiding something? It’s OK to question your sexuality. There are even gay republicans, not many but I’m sure if you look you can hook up with one. I don’t really care how you swing or for that matter anyone else. The more gay men out there the more women for me so go explore your curiosity.

          • hey bath house barry is your hero

          • bobnstuff

            I doubled my wealth under his presidency, my kids all got good jobs and none of them went to war. I could care less about wither he ever went to a bath house. You on the other hand seem to be fascinated by the story so it tells me something about you.

      • roboteq

        Yes, it is out of character for Donald Trump to do something that could in any way possible come back to bite him. Trump is famous for wanting to get issues out in the open, including investigations and trials. Why would President Trump put himself in such a compromising position with someone who was already under fire for so many things by so many different influential people? Trump may be arrogant, outspoken and the epitome of the proverbial ugly American, but in no way is Trump stupid. In fact, Trump seems to be applying tactics of chess to the Progressives failing game of checkers.

        • bobnstuff

          Trump puts a gag clause in all his settlements, he works hard at keeping things from being out in the open, like his tax returns. He did just what he would have done back as a businessman.

          • Pete

            Go see Mad Cow for a copy of the Trump tax return. She/It spent an evening agitating over a couple pages.

      • Retired

        bobnbull strikes again with BS .

      • Pete

        Impacted cranium.

      • Noah Rosenblum

        At the very least he is not eliminating the people around him like the Clintons have, by causing them to walk in front of bullets.

    • Askjrsk

      They sure are. No wonder they are failing.
