New Comey Email Raises Additional Questions About His Use and Defense of The Steele Dossier

There is a new and intriguing document related to the Russian investigation out this week. Justthenews has released a previously undisclosed email from former FBI Director James Comey that raises additional questions about his role in using the now discredited Steele dossier as part of the FBI Russian investigation. The email on Jan. 12, 2017 email to then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper falsely claims that Christopher Steele was found to be “reliable” but then states that the FBI could not “sufficiently corroborate the reporting.” The email went out the same day that Comey signed a FISA surveillance warrant application declaring that content from Christopher Steele’s dossier had been “verified.” We are still waiting for the results of the John Durham investigation but this email raised additional questions about Comey’s role. Comey has testified that he would not have approved such surveillance if he knew then what he knew now about the Steele dossier.

Comey signed a statement to the secret court that the information was “verified” on the same day that he admitted to Clapper that “We are not able to sufficiently corroborate the reporting.” Yet, he also did not tell Clapper what the FBI had already knew about Steele and Carter Page. While Comey later insisted that he was unaware of basic information, he was signing applications for secret surveillance and advising Clapper without either confirming or disclosing information.

The CIA had already told the FBI that Page was a U.S. intelligence asset, not a Russian spy.  It had also been warned that Hillary Clinton’s campaign was trying to plant a false Russian collusion story in the media.(The Clinton campaign and its attorney Marc Elias had reportedly denied that the campaign funded the dossier until after the election) It was also told that Steele’s primary source was a suspected Russian agent and that is network was compromised by Russian intelligence. Steele had also been reportedly terminated by the FBI as a source because of his efforts to plant stories in the media.

Comey mentioned none of this and instead cautioned Clapper against a statement saying that there was no judgment on the reliability of the Steele dossier. He was opposed to a public statement declaring that the Steele dossier was only mentioned in an appendix to the intel community’s report because the “IC has not made any judgment that the information in the document is reliable.” Comey insisted her was reliable:

“I just had a chance to review the proposed talking points on this for today. Perhaps it is a nit, but I worry that it may not be best to say ‘the IC has not made any judgment that the information in the document is reliable.’ I say that because we HAVE concluded that the source is reliable and has a track record with us of reporting reliable information; we have some visibility into his source network, some of which we have determined to be sub-sources in a position to report on such things; and much of what he reports in the current document is consistent with and corroborative of other reporting included in the body of the main IC report.”

So Comey worked to preserve the public narrative in support of the Steele dossier, which was being widely disseminated and fueled what was later found to be an unsupported conspiracy theory.  He did so while admitting later “That said, we are not able to sufficiently corroborate the reporting to include it in the body of the report.”

  1. “We are still waiting for the results of the John Durham investigation” lol lol lol. The Durham investigation was a fairy tale to get conservatives to sleep at night. John Durham clearly sees his “investigation” as a 401k. If you are waiting for results from this sham investigation, you will be waiting a long time.

  2. The latest news about Comey, or any news about Comey, no matter how bad, means nothing. If Comey were an ordinary criminal, he’d be imprisoned by now and for a long time to come. But Comey is a Deep State criminal and that means he’s exempt from any punishment whatsoever. And Durham is worthless. Everybody who knows anything about investigations knows that Durham’s just a glorified thumb-twiddler and that the DOJ is a total fraud. Given these facts, Prof. Turley would be better served by not giving any publicity to Comey. Comey delights in publicity because it only goes to emphasize the double and triple standards that he gets to operate under. We should at least deprive Comey of this form of delight from his vile existence.

  3. This e-mail is Jan 17, 2017. Comey admitting nothing in the dossier is confirmed.

    An FBI letter dated Jan 4, 2017 from the leaders of Crossfire Hurricane(Trump investigation) and Crossfire Razor(Flynn investigation) recommended closing the investigations because no derogatory information existed for either, and the IC also had come up empty.

    The biggest scandal?

    Not a single whistleblower came forward to expose any part of this corruption.

    The common opinion has been the corruption was limited to the 7th floor of the Hoover Building. The lack of whistleblowers exposes the rot goes will down the chain of command and into the field agents themselves.

    1. Speaking of “rot”…, have you heard about this?

      “A City’s Mayor, Police Chief and Clerk Face Misconduct Charges”

      “The officials of Armstrong, Iowa, and a former city clerk, face charges that include assault with a dangerous weapon, theft and falsifying public documents, the authorities said.”

      https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/13/us/armstrong-iowa-county-officials-taser-embezzlement.html

      So much for “Iowa Nice”…. (IIRC, you weighed in on the topic a few weeks ago.)

      1. Being corrupt has nothing to do with “Iowa Nice” .

        Maybe you can point to some defined group of persons that are without sin.

        (Let’s try to stay on topic. )

        1. ‘Being corrupt has nothing to do with “Iowa Nice” .’ — iowan2

          lol

          Sure, if you say so, pal…, but we both know, it does.

          Also, people post things that are off-topic all the time. Deal with it.

          “Iowa Nice” = “Iowa Phony”

          1. I don’t know why the childish attempt at picking a fight. But knock yourself out, I’m tapping out, you can claim the victory.

  4. Residents of DC are now posting signs calling for “Biden’s Wall” to come down. Free DC! Tear down the Biden Wall!

    Where’s Joe?

  5. “Raises questions”? Just once, I’d like to see Turley fire up the same distaste he has for Trump when dealing with the criminals on the Left like Comey. This is “smoking gun” evidence of the criminal conspiracy to overthrow the duly elected POTUS. It’s evidence of numerous felonies – why can’t Turley make that clear? Or are criminal charges only for conservatives? Like what would Comey have to do for Turley to say he committed a crime?

    1. The department of Just Us protects their own. Always. Don’t be waiting on a Durham indictment-palooza….the time for that to happen was before the 2020 election. It ain’t coming.

      1. It’s a reasonable inference that Barr was afraid Weismann’s attempt to manufacture a self-licking ice cream cone (a post-presidential indictment for obstructing Weismann’s obstruction investigation) was going to generate a general purge of Justice Department personnel. So, he sells himself as replacement Attorney-General and he and windsock Rosenstein contrive to cut the crooked Weissmann crew off at the knees to protect other department personnel. Neither Huber nor Durham ever intended to do a bloody thing.

        1. Also, Mueller’s performance in front of the Judiciary committee suggests early-stage dementia. Mrs. Barr and Mrs. Mueller are friends, so Barr had the skinny on that before he was appointed Attorney-General. He doesn’t want Mueller injured by Weissmann’s shenanigans.

          1. Yep we watched “justice” move swiftly for Mueller’s indictments and convictions. Boom, Manafort in prison. Boom, SWAT team raid on Stone’s home, etc. But Barr kept explaining to us, have patience, that these cases take “time” to put together rock solid convictions. It takes “time” you see. Really? We saw Mueller’s “justice” move fast. Four years wasn’t enough time to nail down some rock solid indictments and convictions AG Barr? The swiftness goes only in one direction. We see you Bill Barr.

            1. And if Durham does eventually produce something other than another slap on the wrist, it will be a bust, because the time to correct the injustice and lawbreaking of the last administration was BEFORE the NEXT election. They had four years to nail it down! The time for it to really matter has past. There was no justice, no punishment meted out for the 2016 election spying and lying. Then we watched them rig and steal the 2020 election. There is nothing stopping them from doing it again. Nothing. This was Sharyl Attkisson’s analysis of it and I completely agree.

              1. And by justice and punishment, I mean convictions and going to prison. Not million dollar book deals and cable news gigs. And not getting fired but keeping your government pension and benefits. That’s not “justice” being served.

  6. media following up and correcting the record on a problem that destroys the preferred narrative.

    do we really need to question the REASONS for the flat out complicity AND intentional complicity that media played in this massive campaign to create AND MAINTAIN misinformation and completely false narratives?

    wait for it…in 1.2.3, the media will BOAST AND BRAG AND DEFEND their role in “fortifying” this media tyranny….”we were simply protecting the security of the constitution, preserving the harm that would have resulted ” from telling the truth.

    yes, we have a problem houston.

    1. regitiger, your comment is incoherent. Whatever you think you’re saying comes off a garbled attempt at whatever.

  7. Every time I hear the word Comey and email, it looks worse for the former FBI director. I wonder where this all leads to in the end. I will say if he has done something illegal, I hope he faces proper retribution. If he has done something immoral, I hope his reputation is ruined. If he has done nothing but what he was supposed to, I hope he receives an apology. Regardless, I hope we have answers when this is finally done.

  8. Dennis finds it very easy to post on this forum. First he cuts and then he comes to this forum and pastes the information he found on CNN. Easy as pie. Or as Latka said easy as cake.

    1. Thinkthrough, you might consider cutting & pasting yourself. Because none of your posts work as free-standing comments. You only come across as a toadie of a troll.

      1. Anon, where is your answer justifying the FBI’s false application to the FISA Court. Please tell us wether the FBI was justified in there actions. FishWings tried to explain their actions now it’s your turn. Anon is back with her troll fetish. She has our names on the trolls. She turns off the lights, illuminates the room with a candle and slowly punctures the little trolls needle after needle while repeating “bubble bubble toil and trouble, bubble bubble trolls are trouble.

  9. Does the same appy to ‘if he knows in the future what he should have known in the past’ about the use of the word intent in criminal law specificaly the national security portion of the US Code? There are two paragraphs that apply. One needs intent as an element, the other does not need ‘intent’ as an element. In reading both one finds ‘intent’ on the part of Comey to give a free ride as the paragraph referring to Clintons crimes refer to continued violations over a period of time. Such as refusing to intend security briefings. How much was Comey paid for that intent? Given his training and job it was impossible to miss.

  10. Again Turley panders to the ignorance and non-reality of Trump supporters, his now familiar litany of deflecting is impressive. And like the republican party, lying in defense of Trump is no vice, acknowledging facts is no virtue.

    1. Fishwing’s, has double TDS. Trump Derangement Syndrome and Turley Derangement Syndrome. Many readers do not always agree with Professor Turley, my self included. Many readers do credit the Professor with being an intelligent man regardless of wether they agree with his position. If just once Fishwing’s would find a point of agreement with our host I would have more charity in accessing his writings. As it is, applying such charity can only justified if a lack of mania is discerned. Therefore I must refrain.

    2. You posted this to the wrong thread. It makes no sense. This thread is about the FBI lying to the Secret FISA court.

  11. Here is the question. Answer honestly. After seeing what the FBI did with the FISA Court would you wan’t the FBI investigating you. This is the real sadness in this sordid mess. We wanted to hope that the premier law enforcement of the nation would not put their thumb on the scale of justice for political reasons. The feeling in the pit of our stomach brought about the acts of the leadership of the FBI grinds the lining away. This bitter taste should be found in your mouth whether you are on the right or the left. A sad time for America.

    1. Of course if anybody had close personal and business ties with the Putin regime one would have to know that the FBI would be looking into that relationship. More so if it concerned national security.

      1. FishWings, Trumps position would require a security clearance. It would have been justified to check his background. Doing so would have nothing to do with spying on Carter Paige. In working for the CIA Carter Paige would also have been the subject of a security clearance. In the FISA application the FBI said that Carter Paige was not a CIA asset. It was a lie. They lied to and were admonished by the FISA Court for presenting false information on the application. If Carter Paige was a CIA asset why would they need to surveil him. They spied on Paige because he was an advisor to the Trump campaign. If everything was on the up and up why did they find it necessary to lie to the FISA Court. They knew that without the lie the FISA judge would not allow their continued surveillance. When we start thinking that spying on a political parties campaign is justified we take ourselves down a very dangerous path. FishWings think about this. What if the FBI spied on the Bernie Sanders campaign. You would be justifiably outraged. Think country instead of party first.

        1. If Carter Paige was a CIA asset why would they need to surveil him

          Aren’t you naive? You believe they were spying on Page.

          The FISA warrant allows spying….and backwards lookup, for Page, AND 2 hops. That means spying and backwards look ups (702 searches) of everyone page contacted, and everone those persons contacted….and 702 lookups.

          Those 702 backwards lookups are phone, text, emails internet searches, and more.

          1. Those 702 backwards lookups?
            Before President Trump, 2 different FISA Judges investigated the use of 702 lookups. They found more that 80% were illegal, and done by private contractors working for the FBI. Two differed FISA Judges, more that a year apart, found the same corruption. There is no word that anything has been done to correct the abuse

            Chief Justice Roberts supervises the FISA court, and he has done nothing.

          2. Iowan2, I’m with you brother. I wrote that they were just using page as a portal into the Trump campaign. They were trying to find any dirt they could and they thought they would never be found out. The problem is that they dug the hole and pulled the dirt back in on themselves. Come on commenters out there. There must be defenders of Comey and his compatriots ready to speak your piece.

  12. At this point, so many abuses have been delineated that posts like this dissolve into white noise. And the only one prosecuted is Clinesmith, who gets a slap on the wrist.

    1. Until such time as viable competition exists, the MSM and SMPs must be “taken” under the principle of Eminent Domain and operated, bereft of censorship and with absolute freedom of speech, as state

      regulated monopolies for the public use, good and general welfare.

      The deliberate and malicious abuses of the MSM and SMPs to eliminate freedoms, deny constitutional rights and eliminate political opposition must be terminated with extreme prejudice under the 5th

      Amendment.
      __________

      5th Amendment

      No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

  16. Democrats are in a state of deep denial about problems in their party, trends in their behavior, and serious wrongdoing in the Trump investigation.

    The behavior towards conservatives in general has been well documented:

    – false accusations that the party is racist have gone on for over 20 years
    – falsely calling conservatives Nazi/Fascists for many years
    – censorship
    – harassment
    – physical violence against conservatives for their speech, or even for wearing a MAGA hat

    This does not go on in “both sides” to the same degree, nor with the same power structure. Democrats are not afraid to speak their mind, or to invite Democrat speakers, on college campuses all across America. They are not afraid to leave their house wearing political clothing. They are not routinely censored by Big Tech, academia. Hollywood black listing McCarthyism only extends to conservatives.

    Individual conservatives may certainly behave unkindly, or worse, towards Democrats, but they don’t have the power structure to create a caste system like Democrats have.

    Welcome to the Democrat hegemony. They work for the rise of yet another Leftist dictatorship. And since history is not taught accurately at all, millions of people actually think Leftist systems like socialism are a grand idea.

    If you say nothing, the time to stop this will pass.

    1. Karen, Karen Karen: please stop trying to conflate Trumpism with traditional Republican values, and especially with conservative values. Republicans used to be conservatives until Trump came along. Now, the party is split into factions: traditional Republicans, like Susan Collins, Nikki Haley, Lisa Murkowski and Michael Steele, who are conservatives and the Cult of Trump, like Hawley, and Cruz. Trump is not a conservative–conservatives detest him because he is the antithesis of their values of honesty, personal integrity, true patriotism and family values, none of which apply to Trump. Trump is a chronic, habitual liar with a terrible reputation for cheating people in business, failing to pay his valid debts, marital infidelity and narcissistic arrogance that most sensible people find repulsive. He has earned a reputation as a blowhard bully, racist, xenophobe and misogynist. He is not wanted in New York or in Palm Beach, either. Conservatives wouldn’t be caught dead wearing a MAGA hat. So, Democrats and traditional Republicans are both united against Trump, and they make up at least 60% of the population of eligible voters, according to a poll released today. That means when you try to call people who disapprove of Trump “the left”, you are wrong.

      Because Trumpism is nothing more than cultish worship of a former reality TV host who cheated to get into office, who trashed the economy, allowed a pandemic get out of control, and has proven his racism by praising White Supremacists who are his followers, misogyny by bragging about grabbing womens’ privates and documented abuse of migrants, the MAGA hat stands for these things, which are contrary to the values taught at colleges and universities. Trump’s main appeal was to non college educated whites who resent educated women and minorities and fear the loss of what they perceive to be their superior social status. The presence of people pushing Trumpism is disruptive, resulting in fights and counterprotests. Trump is the closest thing in the US to a would-be dictator and he used social media to spread lies about the election he lost being stolen, which resulted in an invasion of our Capitol and 5 deaths. Social media users agree not to abuse the privilege of using this private platform by lying and stirring up crime, and Trump violated that agreement by lying about nonexistent election fraud when he knew better, which is why he is banned from Twitter and Facebook. Democrats had nothing to do with this, and it isn’t censorship because social media platforms are not run by the government, and the government didn’t ban Trump from using them.

      1. So now Natacha is trying to tell us about family values. I would recommend reading her posts on Turley’s column referencing the film Gilda that Turley posted yesterday. Natacha, if you don’t want to be followed you shouldn’t leave your tracks.

        1. “I would recommend reading her posts on Turley’s column referencing the film Gilda”

          Glad you brought that up.

          Natacha is a classic example of someone suffering from BPD. Add to that the fact that she comes by mean and crazy naturally, to begin with.

      2. “traditional Republicans”

        You don’t speak for “traditional republicans.” And the days when prissy silk-stocking plutocrats like Mitt Romney can trick the Republican base are over.

        Sal

      3. Natacha, your correct. Some conservatives wouldn’t be caught dead wearing a MAGA hat. Just like the conservatives over at The Lincoln Project. Of all people who are you to represent conservatives. Thanks to your comment I’m going to buy another hat.

      4. Natacha, that is quite a rant. You totally ignored policy items of the Trump administration. Agenda items Republicans kept promising, but never could implement. President Trump showed DC Republicans to be nothing but posers. President Trump delivered. Fiighting against Democrats and Republicans. Because Republicans have no desired to lead, they are only in DC to fund their retirement. Much less work being opposition than actually producing results.

  17. Jonathan: The fall out from Trump’s Jan. 6 insurrection continues. So, true to form, you try to change the subject by regurgitating the discredited Steele dossier. That document only shows that many who opposed Trump’s election in 2016, including many in the “liberal” media, were willing to swallow the conspiracy theory that Trump was a Kremlin puppet. They were willing to embrace comforting delusions rather than admit Hilary Clinton was a flawed candidate. In this “age of rage” some people, on both sides, will believe what they want to believe. That said, during his four years in office, Trump has embraced all sorts of conspiracy theories. When Covid broke out in March Trump tried to divert attention away from his failure to recognize the danger by falsely claiming the virus was intentionally hatched in a Chinese bio-weapon lab in Wuhan. Even you endorsed this false narrative. The most fantastical conspiracy theory from Trump is his false claim that last year’s election was “stolen” from him by massive election fraud by the Democrats. He refused ( and still does) to accept the election results and convinced some of his followers that only only a violent insurrection would “Stop the Steal”. Now, Republicans in Congress who still support Trump are claiming the riot on Jan. 6 was not an “insurrection” at all. Wisconsin’s Republican Senator, Ron Johnson, who voted to acquit Trump, says what happened at the Capitol “didn’t seem like an armed insurrection to me”. Five people were killed in the Capitol insurrection including one Capitol officer who was beaten and killed by a Trump supporter “armed” with a lethal weapon–a fire extinguisher. The result was the same had he used an AR-15! Johnson is clearly living in an alternative universe .The Steele dossier pales in comparison to Trump’s conspiracy theories he used to try to hold on to power. Stop beating a dead horse.

    1. Yeah, Dennis, like we’re really concerned with the Steele Dossier. Like that’s the issue we need to get back to. ..Not..!

    2. Dennis, there is so much disinformation in your post that is impossible to cover it all so I’ll just point out one piece. It is now being reported that the officer who died did not suffer a blunt force. The New York Times reported that he was struck with a fire extinguisher. The Times has now retracted their story. Maybe you should do the right thing and like the Times retract your story.

    3. New information comes out that James Comey *lied to a federal court* to obtain a secret warrant on the Trump campaign. That’s news.

      Comey belongs in prison.

    4. “including one Capitol officer who was beaten and killed by a Trump supporter “armed” with a lethal weapon–a fire extinguisher.”

      That is a lie. New York Times quietly retracted its reporting on that story because it is not true.

    5. Dennis: The horse isn’t dead. Obama, Biden, and down the command line, DOJ, FBI, CIA, et als, also including Comey, Strozk, Page and others attempted a coup against DT. Apparently, most of the Dem cyclopes can not see a coup was attempted? I believe that if the John Durham report would be released fully, that coup attempt would be proven. I also realize that one can not have an opposing opinion to you mentally channel locked tunnel visioned Dems. I believe the DOJ will whitewash the Durham report. The 1-6-2021 occurance was an atrocity. But the protesters made the decision, it is said, before the 1-6 date, to enter the Building. DT told them tp protest , not to riot and destroy. Why do you Dems not listen to one of the most liberal Law Prof Alan Dershowitz’s opinion? Do you simply discount his opinion because you people simply hate DT. Speaking of accepting anything about the election, you Dems have Never accepted DT was elected nov 2016,and since 10-01-15 a coup was instilled to remove DT. There has BEEN NOTHING BUT INHUMANE HATRED AND RAGE EXERTED ASSIDUOUSLY AGAINST DT from the beginning. . Now that rage is seeping into the opposition and you well may see Un-Civil war II.The Steel dossier was utilized as a part of the Alleged Coup. Durham may figure along with the DOJ that to release the full truth will destroy the system. But I say the system is already destroyed, no rule of law exists now, other that the laws they chose to impose, and the one whom they to chose to impose (prosecute) it upon.

    6. “The fall out from Trump”

      He’s been living inside your feeble little mind 24/7 for so long that you just can’t quit, The Donald.

      All the while you have no idea that as a result, he owns your psyche’.

      You remind me of a few women I’ve known who just can’t get their head around the idea that it was a one and done. In fact, I can see you going to Mara Lago and boiling Rabbits, ala “Fatal Attraction”.

      Someone needs to start a specialized rehab center designed for people like you and a lot of the other TDS sufferers here and elsewhere.

      DeTrump Mansion would be a good name.

    7. that officer was NOT killed by being beaten with a fire extinguisher. That has been proven to be a totally false narrative. Even The NY Times finally ran correction of that totally bogus story line. Also, 5 people were not killed. Of those five, several died based upon strokes, heart attacks, one of whom wasn’t even on site at the event. Horribly tragic and unfortunate…absolutely. And the event overall was a mess. But you claims here that the event caused 5 killings are inaccurate and intentionally deceiving.

      1. If Trump runs in 2024, Dennis will once again be telling us all about the great fire extinguisher murder(see Russia hoax). Why worry about the truth when saving the world is at stake. I prophecy the coming proclamation from the very mouths of the almighty CNN and MSNBC gods. Dennis will be presiding and will give his sermon from chapter two of the gospel of Steele. You indeed will be lifted up.

    8. Trump’s campaign did work with Russian hackers to lie about Hillary, AND she got more votes than Trump anyway–but the strategy was to target key districts that could sway the Electoral College, and that’s how he got into office. Trump was deferential to Putin–publicly siding against American intelligence in Helsinki, refusing to sanction Russia for poisoning dissidents, refusing to sanction Russia for paying a bounty to kill Americans and we know he was trying to borrow money from Russians and that he made a $40M profit by flipping a FL mansion to a Russian oligarch. These are facts, not conspiracy theories.

      1. Natch believes the misinformation about the bounty thing huh? You are ever eager to display your naivete.

        Why would Russia pay Taliban to kill Americans?

        Taliban had been doing that for free for over a decade.

        Actually the captured Taliban guy was making stuff up to please his idiotic CIA interrogators who are ever eager to make stuff up to justify their ongoing presence in Afghanistan. there is no evidence to back up this preposterous and laughable claim from the warmongering CIA.

        Here you go: ” a chorus of IC officials says it was “less conclusive”

        https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/national-security/u-s-officials-say-intel-russian-bounties-was-less-conclusive-n1233199

        IE FAKE NEWS — BUT YOU BELIEVED IT! LOL

        Sal

      2. Natacha, I’m sure that you are absolutely correct. Could you please tell us your sources so that we may be further enlightened. Surely one of your sources must come from the church of The Never Trump Disciples. Your a member! What a small world. At the end of the summer we are all going to take a secret formula enlightenment elixir. Don’t miss the service.

      3. Natacha – now do China and the Biden Crime Family conflicts. Joe Biden is now president. Then let’s play a game: where’s Joe Biden and what is he doing? CNN is reporting that he likes a fire in the White House fireplace and he sometimes throws a log on it himself. Oh and they added that Joe likes to get to bed early too.

        So of course Pelosi wants a 911 commission to keep distracting away from Grandpa pudding brain.

        1. Let me ask you something. Did the 911 commission ever fully disclose the 20 some classified pages about the contacts between Saudi intelligence and the hijackers? Nope

          Did the 911 comiss ever provide a physically plausible explanation for how wtc7, the third building that collapsed, that was not hit by a plane, was not doused in jet fuel, was only hit by some falling debris, burned on a few floors for 45 minutes or so, then suddenly collapsed on its own footprint at freefall speed, with all the many reinforced concrete columns giving way simultaneously?

          no, they just referred to the patently false and unbelievable NIST “study’ that asserted without evidence that this impossible thing actually happened. I guess in that instance the truth may have been harder to believe than the lie. Comes down to that sometimes, I guess.

          So don’t put too much faith in things like the vaunted “9/11 commission.”

          Even the leader of it was forced to criticize it, asserting that the CIA failed to cooperate. OF course!

          “The co-chairmen of the blue ribbon 9/11 Commission, Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton, wrote in The New York Times on Wednesday that “recent revelations that the CIA destroyed videotaped interrogations of Qaeda operatives leads us to conclude that the agency failed to respond to our lawful requests for information about the 9/11 plot.”

          Trusting this government is like trusting a carnival game operator. They’re seriously lacking in credibility

        2. And if you watched Biden’s CNN Townhall tonight, it’s shockingly clear that the CCP’s “investment” in the Biden Crime Family: Joe, Hunter, and James, was worth every yuan.

    9. It is not true that 5 people died as a result of the Jan. 6th riot! The police officer was not killed by a fire extinguisher. The only person killed during riot was the veteran gal shot by a Capitol policeman. The others died of strokes and heart attacks away from the riot. But then: “What difference does it make?”.

      1. Pelosi and the Democrat Party are shamefully exploiting a man’s death for their poltical gain. It’s disgusting.

    10. Dennis wants the Steele Dossier dead horse to go away because it keeps stinking up his dressing room at MSNBC. Don’t look over there folks, look over here barked the carnival barker. Step right up folks. He walks. He talks. Trump crawls on his belly like a rattlesnake and he says nasty words. Keep coming back and you will surely win a prize. Who will be the first to take a chance. My assistant Natacha will take your entry fee. Step right up folks. Step right up.

    11. “Stop beating a dead horse.”

      Democrats should stop *exploiting* the officer’s death for political gain. It’s beyond disgusting…even for the lowlife Democrat Party.
