Trump Asked Comey To End Flynn Probe
Well, now that he doesn’t have a job anymore, former FBI director James Comey is letting these secrets FLY in the media.
According to new reports, Donald Trump asked Comey abandon the investigation into the activities of ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn before giving him the boot.
CNN reports that in a memo written by Comey immediately after the oval office meeting that took place in February, he details Trump flat out asking him to turn the other way when it comes to Flynn.
“I hope you can let this go,” he said to him.
The request serves as pretty damning evidence that Trump directly sought to influence the FBI’s investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia.
Of course, the White House denies it all with this statement:
“While the President has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the President has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn. The President has the utmost respect for our law enforcement agencies, and all investigations. This is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the President and Mr. Comey.”
You would think Trump would take into account what these people he’s so hype to hand out firings to know about him before being so hasty with kicking them out…
