Sean: Welcome to “Hannity.” Fox News alert. Director James Comey releases his opening remarks ahead of tomorrow’s congressional testimony. It raises serious legal concerns for himself and not the president.
Onight by Comey’s prepared testimony and he is ready to move forward. We will have full legal analysis of the prepared statement and also, the left mainstream media — they are outright lying to you about this. At a level never before seen in our country’s history. Their goal is to destroy the president by any means necessary. They are nothing more than agenda driven ideologues. They staged protests, they call the president a piece of you know what. They even have people posing like ISIS fighters with a severed head of the commander in chief. They attacked the first lady’s, the president’s children, even the 11-year-old son. By any means necessary — tonight it’s time to stand up and fight for the sole and future of this country. That starts by being honest and giving you comfort you won’t find anywhere else about the former FBI director James Comey and his agenda German mission. Now, to James Comey himself commit a felony? And break the law by not coming forward with his claim? That is tonight’s all-important opening monologue. Earlier to date, director James Comey released his opening statement that he will give tomorrow before the show. This statement contains several key points that blow the trump-russia collusion conspiracy theory out of the water and it completely shoots down the media and the Democrats and all the hyperventilating and foaming at the mouth about obstruction of justice. Now we have discovered that they have been lying to you for months. We are going to cover everything in terms of the self-serving document released by Comey. It almost reads like a novel. In great detail tonight. Here are some very key points I want to tell you about. The president did not obstruct justice. Comey never says his interactions with the president for inappropriate or illegal. By the way, that this is key — Comey told President Trump he was not personally under investigation. Number three, Comey admits there was confusion between him and the president over a so-called loyalty pledge. Number four, if call me thought it was obstruction of justice and he didn’t come forward, did Comey commit a felony and violate the law? Unlike his conversations with President Trump, Comey writes that he never created memos about interactions with President Obama. Remember, he also didn’t put Hillary Clinton under oath during her interview and Comey didn’t bother to create a transcript of that interview. Let’s start with the first point, the president did not obstruct justice. Comey described the February 14th meeting in the oval office as follows… He repeated that Flynn hadn’t done anything wrong on his calls with the Russians but the fact that he had misled the vice president, he then said I hope — keywords here — you could see your way clear to letting this go. He’s a good guy. I hope you can let this go. First of all, any lawyer, legal expert will tell you this alleged conversation doesn’t come anywhere close to obstruction of justice like the media is claiming tonight. Then there is this from Comey. I had understood the president requesting any investigation of Flynn with false statements about his conversations with the Russian ambassador in December. I did not understand the president to be talking about the broader investigation into Russia or possible links to his campaign. I could be wrong but I took him to be focusing on what had just happened with Flynn’s departure and the controversy around his accounts of his phone calls. Regardless, it was concerning giving the FBI’s role as an independent investigative agency agency. According to Comey into his opening statement, President Trump only mentioned Flynn and did not try to bring up the topic or try to impede the overall “Russian investigation.” Here’s another point the media won’t tell you, there were only two people in the room. This is only James Comey’s version of events and how he perceived trump’s comments. The president may have a much different interpretation. In spite of all the insane, breathless coverage he might have watched earlier today. There’s no legal basis for obstruction. That means the destroy trunk media, which has been hyperventilating, they’ve been completely wrong. Watch this coverage.
>> When you say there is a obstruction case here, who is your target?
>> The president and anyone else who was involved in that decision to fire James Comey.
>> To consider this to be a growing body of evidence that the president might have attempted to obstruct justice?
>> What we have heard and seen so far constitute obstruction of justice and if not, how might you go about proving it.
>> It’s getting pretty close.
>> Your reaction to this bombshell report?
>> Obstruction of justice. Three words.
>> Sean: Here’s the most important point the media will never tell you. If James Comey did in fact think this was obstruction of justice and he did not come forward, Comey could have committed a felony and he himself broke the law. The actual law on the side of your screen — as my colleague has pointed out, Gregg Jarrett, if James Comey thought the president was doing something illegal, he had a legal obligation to come forward immediately. That’s not what Comey did. In his testimony, Comey says he didn’t bother to tell the attorney general Jeff Sessions about his conversation with President Trump because in part, he thought sessions was going to recuse himself from the Russian investigation. That would not be a reason not to follow the law. When Comey complained to the attorney general’s face about not wanting to be left alone with the president, he decided not to tell sessions about his conversation with the president. Another key major point — Comey also told President Trump he was not personally under investigation. Not once, multiple times. This means once again, every conspiracy theory you have heard from months about trump colluding with Russians, it’s not true. Given the mainstream media’s nonstop, incessant coverage and the fact that Comey told trump is not under investigation, it’s unreasonable for the president to say — everyone’s claiming I might be involved here and if you are telling me I’m not under investigation. Can you just come forward and set the record straight and tell the American people the truth? To clear my name? It’s interfering with my job. Do you think that’s unreasonable? Should the FBI director come forward and tell the truth that he believes the American people? Comey admits there was confusion between him and the president over a so-called loyalty pledge that happened at a private dinner. Take a look at this from Comey’s prepared testimony. He said I need loyalty. I replied, you will always get honesty from me. He paused and then said well, that’s what I want. Honest loyalty. You will get that from me. In the memo I wrote after the dinner, it was possible we understood or misunderstood the phrase honest loyalty. I decided it would be productive to push it forward. So, was it loyalty? Honest loyalty? By the way, what does this mean anyway? Loyalty to the Constitution and the rule of law? To the former administration that Comey worked for? Admits there was confusion about that part of the conversation. There’s also a glaring double standard here. Unlike with President Trump, James Comey didn’t write memos about his conversation with President Obama. I said this weeks ago. I think that’s because Comey is planning on writing a novel or a tell-all book or working for MSNBC and following Rachel Maddow every night. He is a perfect black helicopter conspiracy theorist himself. James Comey did not require — Hillary Clinton was not put under oath when she was interviewed about her server. Or that a complete transcript of that interview was set to be created. Why not? Why wasn’t that done? Look at what happened to Michael Flynn. The guy was tarred and feathered by the press one trump allegedly said I could hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, letting Flynn go. He’s a good guy, I hope you can do this and let this go. Was it similar to what the president said on “60 minutes” about the Clintons? That he “didn’t want to hurt them?” He was basically saying he wanted to let them go. Comey apparently didn’t want to hurt the Clintons either. Factoring the campaign, he felt it was necessary to come out and announce the FBI’s findings about Hillary Clinton. Comey laid out that Clinton had secret special access program and classified information on her unsecured server that we believe 99% certainty was hacked hacked. After all that, he treated Clinton with kid gloves. You may remember this in July of last year.
>> Looking back at our investigations into the mishandling or removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts. We are expressing to justice our view that no charges are in this case.
>> Sean: That’s not mishandling classified material by putting it on a mom and pop bathroom closet, the server with the top-secret information on it it. No. No. Or getting rid of emails. Some 30,000 emails, even top-secret. Clinton broke several laws and committed several felonies. But she gets the courtesy of the public announcement. The president? Who the FBI director told a number of times that they were not under investigation customer that’s ridiculous. Comey should be ashamed of himself. It reads like a political document in every way, shape, matter, form. There’s more to say in terms of the big story we are following today. The media will not cover this tonight. The director of national intelligence, Dan coats, and the NSA director, admiral Mike Rogers — they threw cold water on the the dash let’s start with Rogers, while he would not comment on his private conversation with the president, he made his point crystal clear. Take a look.
>> In the three plus years I’ve been the director of national security agency, to the best of my recollection, I’ve never been directed to do anything I believe to be a legal, immoral, and ethical or during that same period of service, I do not recall ever feeling pressured to do so.
>> Sean: Why would CNN or NBC ever pay attention to that? Listen to director Dan coats and what he said.
>> When I was asked yesterday to respond to a piece that I was told was going to be written in “The Washington Post” this morning, my response to that was in my time of service, which is interacting with the president of the United States or anybody in this administration, I’ve never felt pressure to intervene or interfere in any way, with shaping intelligence in a political way, or an ongoing investigation.
>> Sean: By the way, Andrew Mccabe, the interim FBI director said basically the same thing. As did others today. All these sound bites exonerate President Trump. They are not going to be played over and over again in the mainstream media. Because it doesn’t fit their ideology and liberal narrative. They are lying to you. The American people. Just like they are with James Comey. They’re not going to tell you they have acts to grind. Keep this in mind tomorrow while you listen to his testimony.
