CNN: Trashing James Comey won’t help Donald Trump’s legal case because Robert Meuller and James Comey are friends

June 12, 2017

 Earlier today CNN host John King stated that because James Comey and Robert Mueller are friends Donald Trump is not helping his legal case by bashing the former FBI director. Here is what he had to say:

“Bob Mueller, the special prosecutor, is a very close friend of James Comey. I don’t think trashing James Comey, especially if you’re trashing him in ways that are demonstrably false, is going to help your legal case.”

You can watch the video here.

  It goes without saying that if Donald Trump is trashing James Comey in a way which is “demonstrably false” that it will not help his legal case but of course we do not know if Donald Trump’s attacks are false, after all James Comey did in fact admit to leaking the transcripts of his personal conversation with the President.

  I do believe, as I wrote about here, that it is time for Donald Trump to shut up and let the investigation take its course because he is not helping himself however this leads me to a question.

  If Robert Mueller and James Comey are friends, and if James Comey has potentially made himself a subject in this investigation by leaking documents, doesn’t this mean Robert Mueller now has to recuse himself from this investigation? How can we trust him to be non-biased? Okay, that was two questions…

  It certainly seems like a conflict of interest and after all, Jeff Sessions thought it fit to recuse himself from the investigation for simply doing his job while a Senator on the Armed Services Committee.

    I think why this is going off the rails is because Mueller hired some heavy duty criminal attorneys. He is not interested in an investigation. The set up in in, they are going after an impeachment. No question in my mind. They will pick them off one by one.

      It is going to be interesting to hear what Sessions has to say. I think you are right about this being set up.

        This is an interesting summary of Comedy’s history from the very beginning of his career to present.

    “It seems clear that based on his history and close “partnership” with Comey, called “one of the closest working relationships the top ranks of the Justice Department have ever seen,” Mueller was chosen as Special Counsel not because he has integrity but because he will do what the powerful want him to do.” Colleen Rowley FBI Whistleblower.

    Friendship sometimes does not survive political realities – self preservation becomes paramount when held under a spotlight

      That is true, when push comes to shove a person’s natural instinct is self-defense.
