Court orders the FBI to turn over James Comey’s memos for review

January 12, 2018

  As you all know, James Comey leaked memos of conversations he had with Donald Trump to a friend at Columbia University and asked him to leak the documents to the New York Times with the admitted purpose of forcing the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the allegations of Russian collusion during the 2016 election.

  Last night a judge ordered the FBI to turn over the documents to the court for review. Here is what Judicial Watch had to say about this news:

The court, in seeking to review the documents, shows it doesn’t trust the FBI or Justice Department’s representations about the infamous Comey memos. We hope now that Americans are one step closer to knowing the facts about these memos, which were written and leaked for pernicious purposes to target a sitting president with a criminal investigation. It’s high time they begin to see the light of day. We’re glad the court followed up on our specific suggestion that it review the documents directly.

  It has been reported that at least 4 of James Comey’s memos contained classified information and Judicial Watch has claimed all of his memos were classified. If the court decides this is true James Comey could be in some trouble here because the friend he leaked the memos to did  not have the proper security clearance.

  These memos were ordered to be handed over by next week to the  U.S. District Court District of Columbia and we know that is one of the most liberal courts in the nation. Is this a legitimate request seeking the truth or will the 9th Circuit use this as cover for James Comey by saying move along, nothing to see here?

    Steve –

    I think it should be the U.S. District Court District of Columbia not the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The 9th is in San Francisco. All courts are liberal. Alumni of U.S. D are Roberts, Thomas, Ginsberg and Kagan

    Never mind the Circuit Court. Where are the indictments for Comey and Huma? They both mishandled classified information even a blind man can see this. The DOJ and it’s AG are worthless. Time to clean house.

      I agree, it is obvious these two should be indicted and it is time to clean house. I think maybe Comey will be the fall guy.

    Does anyone have any idea why Sessions would resist handing over the documents? I could understand it with the Obama admin, but the Trump admin?

    For the last 50 years, every time a President (or anyone else in gov’t) has wanted to bury something embarrassing, they’ve always claimed “national security”.

    Makes me wonder if Trump is trying to bury a skeleton of his own. Since he’s actually been doing pretty well, I’d hate to see him go down because of some b.s.

      Sessions has recused himself from this, which I find to be odd in the first place, but he is part of the establishment. I think they are trying to protect Comey but maybe there is something in there damaging to Trump.

    I am surprised that we are getting as far as we are with the D.C. court… either we are very lucky and missing the Obama loaded judges or they too have the drift that what goes around comes around.. Always another administration to carry out this dirty business.
