The White House's explanation for the firing of James Comey is totally unraveling
http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/11/politics/james-comey-firing-trump/

From the jump, it seemed odd that Comey's actions in and around the Clinton email server investigation were the impetus for this move. After all, while Trump had been openly critical of the Director's decision not to bring charges against Clinton, he had also heaped praise on Comey when the investigation was re-opened in late October due to the discovery of another trove of emails.

...As Tuesday turned to Wednesday, the story coming out of the White House began to change. Trump himself said after a photo op with, wait for it, Henry Kissinger, that Comey had been let go "because he wasn't doing a good job."


...Later, deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that the real reason for Comey's dismissal was the "atrocities" he had committed against the chain of command by openly acknowledging in Congressional testimony last week that he had not told the attorney general -- Loretta Lynch at the time -- what he would say on July 5 when he announced his findings in the Clinton case.


...What the ever-changing stories trying to explain why Trump did what he did suggest is that no one either knows or wants to talk about the real reason that Trump moved on Comey.


Same old Trump administration. As scattershot as ever.  Undecided

I think that was the intentional point. That the White House's "explanation" sounds like the type of lie a child tells.

President Trump’s decision to fire James Comey touched off widespread speculation in Washington over what will happen to the FBI’s Russia meddling probe – but the prospect of new leadership at the bureau also could hold implications for the ‘closed’ Hillary Clinton email case.

Brian Weidner, a veteran former FBI agent, suggested both the case and the immunity deals struck during that investigation could be revisited.

"I would be surprised if they did not review all the investigations regarding HRC and come up with [a] conclusion regarding prosecution. The statute of limitations hasn't come into play yet," he said in an email to Fox News.

As for the immunity deals struck with key players in the Clinton orbit, he noted those deals are “with the government, so in theory it wouldn't change.”

However, he wrote, “a new AG and new director may take a good look at the entire case, and if anyone who received immunity did not live up to their agreement, like Huma [Abedin] with the classified documents on her computer, the deal is off and they are potential targets again.”

For dozens of current and former agents, the key factor will be who is the next director of the world’s most powerful law enforcement agency.

Does Trump pick from the FBI ranks or opt for a more political choice?

"No one can figure out how this POTUS [president of the United States] operates," one former agent connected to the Clinton email probe said. 

While Democrats allege Trump fired Comey because of his discomfort with the probe of Russian interference in the 2016 campaign and potential ties to Trump associates, the stated reason for the ouster was Comey’s handling of the Clinton email probe last year. A detailed memo from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein faulted Comey for announcing his findings last July, going around his boss, then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and for making public a decision to revisit the case shortly before the election.

Former State Department Inspector General Howard Krongard told Fox News that he remains critical of how Comey led the email investigation – including the immunity deals with key Clinton aides Abedin, Bryan Pagliano, Cheryl Mills, John Bentel and Heather Samuelson.

Krongard described it as “the granting of immunity to five senior Clinton aides for virtually nothing in return.”

He said this is “normally done in return for a proffer of evidence or testimony which will build a bridge from one level to a higher level; in this case, the immunity grants built a moat around the higher level, not a bridge.”

Krongard stressed that the FBI’s interview with Clinton, “the highest level person and ultimate person of interest in the investigation” was held on July 4 weekend, “when the investigation had to have been virtually complete."

It also still baffles Krongard why Mills – a participant in the use of Clinton’s private email systems to send and receive classified messages – "was allowed to be present during the interview [with Clinton] and even to act as counsel."

There is no shortage of criticism surrounding other aspects of that investigation.

A former FBI agent familiar with the counterintelligence investigation into Clinton's use of non-secure email devices and servers told Fox News that "no stone was unturned” in the probe but alleged the process was deliberately "slowed down" by Clinton’s personal attorney David Kendall.

“We got everything we needed, but it was more painful than it needed to be,” the source said. “We would draft up search warrants for the servers in both residences -- then the process would be slowed down. It was like Step 1 and a pause, Step 2 and a pause.”

The source said coordinating with Kendall bothered him and others, saying, “Only when we threatened with the search warrants, something would be given up.”

The source said, "It was so much harder than it should have been."

The source added that the Justice Department “was running the show,” and the tone of the investigation was set at the top. “There was distaste for the investigation during the entire time.”

Rosenstein, in his memo, used the word "wrong” to describe Comey's handling of the conclusion of the criminal investigation into Clinton's use of private email servers and a private email account for all government business while she served as secretary of state.

"The way the director handled the conclusion of the email investigation was wrong," Rosenstein wrote, specifically noting that, "the director announced his own conclusions about the nation's most sensitive criminal investigation without the authorization of duly appointed Justice Department leaders."

The source, though, asserted that Comey “wanted to protect then-Attorney General Lynch."

Lynch at the time was under fire for meeting in late June 2016 with former President Bill Clinton on a Phoenix tarmac.

Eight days later, Clinton appeared for her official FBI interview at the Washington Field Office. The next day, Comey held his press conference proclaiming no criminal charges would be brought against Clinton despite her being "extremely careless" with the handling of highly classified materials while serving as the secretary of state.

Hey, TRUMP.  About time you made a move on this.  Better late than never, I know.  But try to keep the focus... OK?

(Reuters) U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday signed an executive order to bolster government's cyber security and protecting the nation's critical infrastructure from cyber attacks, the White House said, marking his first significant action to address what he has called a top priority.

The order seeks to improve the network security of U.S. government agencies, from which hackers have pilfered millions of personal records and other forms of sensitive data in recent years.

It also aims to better protect critical infrastructure, such as the energy grid and financial sector, from sophisticated attacks that officials have long warned could pose a national security threat or cripple parts of the economy.

Before being fired, Comey told Congress that Russian probe targets didn't include Trump

Circa ^ | May 11, 2017 | John Soloman

Posted on 5/11/2017, 3:17:22 PM


Congressional officials were told by FBI Director James Comey before he was fired that there are just a small number of Americans who are targets of the criminal or counterintelligence probes involving Russia and that none were President Trump or his top aides, Circa has confirmed.


Behind closed doors, Comey provided specific updates on about a half dozen or less targeted US citizens who were the focus of either counterintelligence probes or criminal investigations emanating from the Russia election scandal, sources familiar with the intelligence told Circa.

"President Trump is not a target, nor is any senior government official if Comey's account is correct."-Congressional Official

"President Trump is not a target nor is any senior government official if Comey's account is correct," one source said, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because that person was not authorized to comment.

While the counterintelligence probe is focused is on whether any American was compromised by Russian spies, knowingly or unwittingly, the criminal issues are mostly focused on possible crimes not directly related to the core question of collusions with Russia, such as tax, lobbying or money laundering laws, the sources said.

"As had been stated publicly many times the FBI made clear it does not yet have proof of any criminal collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia or any proof voting ballots were changed. These probes can go on for a long time and things can change, but right now that is what is the state (of things)," said a source.

The sources spoke as Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) took the extraordinary step of going to the Senate Judiciary open hearing Thursday to say that he had been provided no evidence to date in classified briefings that Trump was a target.

"Shortly after Director Comey briefed us, I tweeted that he should be transparent. I said he should tell the public what he told Senator Feinstein and me about whether the FBI is or is not investigating the President," said Grassley.

"On Tuesday, the President’s letter said that Director Comey told him he was not under investigation. Senator Feinstein and I heard nothing that contradicted the President’s statement."

His statement was backed up by his Democratic counterpart on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein (D- CA).

Why was Flynn not stripped of, or denied, his security clearance under the Obama Administration?

Good question. It won't help him now though.

Trump: 'No politician in history has been treated more unfairly'

No politician in history has been treated as unfairly as Donald Trump, the president claimed as he struggled under the weight of a series of major controversies.

“Look at the way I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media,” Trump said on Wednesday during a speech to the Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut. “No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly.”
