What is James Comey and the F.B.I. trying to tell us (or not)?

Sunday, March 5th, 2017

 

F.B.I. Director James Comey seems utterly intent on pissing everyone off, regardless of which side of the political aisle they call home. I suppose this might be construed as an “honorable” trait from a lawman; one would presume his impartiality and absolute objectivity would place him at odds with with 50% of politicos at any one time, hinging on any one directive or statement.

 

 

 

James Comey

 

 

 

Or perhaps he is under someone’s ulterior ideological spell, but in order to Trojan Horse his way deeper into the maelstrom, he strategically pisses certain narratives off in order to divert the scent. Is Comey merely tossing out stinkin’ red herrings in order to dissuade triangulation on his true motives?

 

Now he has asked the Justice Department to abandon and reject President Trump’s wiretapping allegations against Barack Obama.

 

 

Mr. Comey, who made the request on Saturday after Mr. Trump leveled his allegation on Twitter, has been working to get the Justice Department to knock down the claim because it falsely insinuates that the F.B.I. broke the law, the officials said.

 

A spokesman for the F.B.I. declined to comment. Sarah Isgur Flores, the spokeswoman for the Justice Department, also declined to comment.

 

Mr. Comey’s request is a remarkable rebuke of a sitting president, putting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the position of questioning Mr. Trump’s truthfulness. The confrontation between the two is the most serious consequence of Mr. Trump’s weekend Twitter outburst, and it underscores the dangers of what the president and his aides have unleashed by accusing the former president of a conspiracy to undermine Mr. Trump’s young administration.

 

 

In addition to serving the predictable ass-covering motivations on the part of the F.B.I. investigators, the Times also points out that the F.B.I. has another dubious, albeit worrisome, motivation to suppress Trump’s request, one which I can’t quite wrap my head around.

 

 

…senior F.B.I. officials are said to be worried that the notion of a court-approved wiretap will raise the public’s expectations that the federal authorities have significant evidence implicating the Trump campaign in colluding with Russia’s efforts to disrupt the presidential election.

 

 

What is this sorcery?

 

Since when are public expectations a significant shaper of the Bureau’s investigatory focus?

 

And if Comey is attempting to allay public expectations of “significant evidence” demonstrating Trump and the Russians have a “thing” going on, does this in fact mean they have found absolutely nothing incriminating?

 

In other words, is Comey trying to avoid publicly exonerating Donald Trump of corrupt Russian ties?  And if so: why?

TSA at LAX cries “spy” over Russian playboy model, Victoria Bonya; another victim of the New Democratic Cold War.

Sunday, March 5th, 2017

 

TSA agents at LAX detained Russian model, Victoria Bonya, and questioned her about any Russian intelligence ties while implying she was affiliated with the KGB in a “spy” role.

 

 

 

Victoria Bonya

 

 

 

A FORMER Playboy model has claimed she was held at an airport in Los Angeles on suspicion of being a Russian spy.

 

Victoria Bonya says she was taken to one side after officers found a business card for a firm that produces hidden video cameras in her luggage.

 

Ms Bonya, 37, also said US officials asked her questions about Russian leader Vladimir Putin while her luggage was scanned.

 

She said: “That was a real blow. I thought I was going down and they would deport me.

 

“Instead of asking some real questions the officer decided to talk about our president.

 

“Finding out everything about my position, he started talking about the KGB.”

 

Ms Bonya, who recently announced her split from the son of Irish businessman Alex Smurfitt, claims she was also asked if she was a member of the secret services.

 

The model, who is based in Monte Carlo in Monaco, added: “I started laughing, as I really thought it was a joke, until they asked me the same thing for a third time.”

 

The ex Playboy model said she was finally allowed to go after officials checked her social media accounts.

 

 

 

How long before American intelligence begins angling for a Donald Trump data point in Bonya’s history so they can tie him together with another juicy tidbit of stray but inflammatory incriminations for the MSM to run with?

 

“He spoke with her 17 years ago before a television appearance…”

 

Bonya needs to check her phone and computer.   The Feds seem to have no compunctions deferring to Russian intrigue as a cheap ploy to tarnish President Trump.
