James Comey behind Leak of Jared Kushner story to Washington Post

As the Washington Post breathlessly reported about Kushner's contacts with Russia the question that comes to mind "Who leaked this?"

I have my own sources within the FBI as a former spook so I made a call to inquire.  All I got was, "Past Cork base boss". That's an old code word for the FBI director that was used many years ago, but because I have been out of service, he knew I would get it.  That would have been James Comey, former FBI director.   As a side note there are many agents who are not at all unhappy that their former boss was gone.  But one is particularly unhappy and plans to come forward in the future.

The Washington Post puts the info sourcing "US officials briefed on intelligence reports", which is utter nonsense.

James Comey has been blatantly carrying on his own private coup against Trump since the election cycle, first by refusing to charge Hillary Clinton with crimes that that would have put anyone else in the clink.  Agents working at the bureau were frustrated that after all the man hours put on that case they were told that nothing was there when in fact they found plenty.

Second, this information has been known since at least December by the FBI, only now has the media picked it up, and again by "anonymous source".   Earlier this week Comey cancelled his appointment to testify to congress in order to visit with his old friend and predecessor as well as now Special Counsel Robert Mueller, I guess for tea and guidance.

As you know formerly Comey leaked the idea of his memo to the press yet as to this date no memo has been produced.  Even if it was it would be considered hearsay in a court of law because it would be Trump's word against his.  Additionally even if true Trump would have done nothing wrong as it's no crime to ask.  No where does anyone say Trump ordered Comey to drop the investigation.

But a leak, especially during a Special Counsel investigation could be troublesome for Comey as it, unless he is called as a witness, could be viewed as obstruction of justice.  Mueller cannot play favoritism at this point which is why I've been on Twitter calling for him to recuse himself.


More on this to come.
