The Sussmann trial yesterday had another surprising disclosure when an agent revealed that FBI leadership, including then-Director James Comey, was “fired up” about the alleged secret communications channel between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank. The question is why Comey and others were so reportedly eager given the lack of foundation for the false claim — a record that even the researchers told the Clinton campaign could be mocked as utterly unsupported. Yet, as with the Steele dossier claims (funded and spread by the Clinton campaign) there was a strikingly receptive audience for such claims at the top of the FBI.
The new disclosure came with the testimony of the supervisory agent for the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe (“Crossfire Hurricane”) Joe Pientka. He sent a note to FBI Special Agent Curtis Heide that stated “People on the 7th floor to include Director are fired up about this server,” Pientka messaged Heide. “Did you guys open a case? Reach out and put tools on?”
The description of the eagerness of Comey and others only magnified concerns over the alleged bias or the predisposition of the agency on the investigation of Trump and his campaign. It is particularly striking in an allegation that was viewed as unsupported even by the researchers and quickly dismissed by the government as baseless.
According to Durham, the Alfa Bank allegation fell apart even before Sussmann delivered it to the FBI. The indictment details how an unnamed “tech executive” allegedly used his authority at multiple internet companies to help develop the ridiculous claim. (The executive reportedly later claimed that he was promised a top cyber security job in the Clinton administration). Notably, there were many who expressed misgivings not only within the companies working on the secret project but also among unnamed “university researchers” who repeatedly said the argument was bogus.
The researchers were told they should not be looking for proof but just enough to “give the base of a very useful narrative.” The researchers argued, according to the indictment, that anyone familiar with analyzing internet traffic “would poke several holes” in that narrative, noting that what they saw likely “was not a secret communications channel with Russian Bank-1, but ‘a red herring,’” according to the indictment.
“Researcher-1” repeated these doubts, the indictment says, and asked, “How do we plan to defend against the criticism that this is not spoofed traffic we are observing? There is no answer to that. Let’s assume again that they are not smart enough to refute our ‘best case scenario.’ You do realize that we will have to expose every trick we have in our bag to even make a very weak association.”
The alleged response from Comey and the FBI leadership would seem to confirm the view of campaign associates that they only needed a “useful narrative” to achieve their purposes. It only took an unsupported, implausible theory to get Comey and his top aides “fired up.”

The fish is rotten from the head to the tail here. We don’t have to be in a Denmark fish market to know this .let alone smell it. So here we , we se the corruption – so obvious and odious. We watch as these lawyers and judges start to weave a narrative to get them acquitted and or the least publicized slap on the wrist for being loyal and frothing apparatchiks. Imagine the chicanery taking place right now in the swamp with whom is really pulling the levers…. the engineered collapse of energy supply , food distribution availability , Inflation , Taxation , Plandemics……. Our goobermint is on board with a global cabal and it’s hardly a secret.
Additional evidence that’s central to Sussmann’s innocence or guilt but that Turley is unlikely to discuss:
I wonder whether Judge Cooper will rule on the motion to dismiss for lack of materiality before the jury starts to deliberate.
Immunity in cases where individuals hide behind their office to perpetrate wrongs that would incarcerate any civilian for a long period of time is far beyond reasonable.
Almighty God left us examples of how to live, in the “KJV” Bible, that I have come to know as, “the Manual for Mankind”, where we find what it means to be “born again” by “dying to the worldliness and the lusts thereof within us, and living with all our heart, mind and soul and strength to God’s Holy word, Jesus Christ. The definition of Man = Sin. By the power of the Holy Spirit of creation, God re-created himself in sinful human flesh through Mary (a sinner), and he (Jesus)overcame sin by living and dying by the written word of God. There is only one God that can, and did, this for us all (Isaiah 53:5-8). No other god but the God who created us, can or would pay for our sins by taking them upon himself once and for all. He will return as he left after Rev. 6 vs 9-11
The same Satanic Spirits of high emotions that Caiaphas used to whip the crowd into hysteria and condemn Jesus is the same evil emotion spirits in Comey and Crew + Pelosi and Evil Eye Adam Schiff and nearly all the Dems and Rinos…. Emotions come in, common sense is pushed out… until later when it is too late, Emotions can NEVER be trusted, Moses found that out when he was not allowed to enter the promise land because he threw the tablets down and he smote the rock…emotions.. even as righteous as they appeared to be, judgement is of the lord.
Romans 3:10 “There is none righteous, no, not one;
Romans 3:12 “All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.”
Psalms 53:3 “But no, all have turned away; all have become corrupt. No one does good, not a single one!”
Isaiah 53:3 “All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the LORD laid on him (Jesus), the sins of us all.
Rev 6 vs 9-11…don’t worry, only the Christians will die…first…then people will beg to die…Rev. 9-6-11
I can’t speak for anyone else, but I believe that God’s hand is moving. Many are turning back to him. Perhaps this is the great Revelation of Truth that is at hand. I don’t worry about who is going to die and who is going to live. All I know is that God’s will will be done and that is all that matters. Remember. Don’t ask God to be on your side. Just do your best to be on His and let the chips fall where they will.
Sec. of War “Godless” Stimson told Truman not to bomb Kyoto as it is the Spiritual Capital of Japan and that would break their spirit…..all our troops praying to God Almighty to break the spirit of the Japanese to prove the God of creation superior..we haven’t won a war since.
We can’t look at Comey in just this instance. Comey was clintonized.
– James Comey got himself inserted as Deputy Special Council on the Senate Whitewater Committee
He came to the conclusion that destruction of documents, amounted to “far more than just aggressive lawyering or political naiveté. It constituted “a highly improper pattern of deliberate misconduct.”
Yet no nothing happened to the Clintons.
– Comey supervised the Sandy Berger fiasco.
On behalf of Bill Clinton, Berger stole highly classified documents and stashed them under a trailer at a construction site during a break. He retrieved the documents at the end of the day and admittedly used scissors to cut them into little pieces before throwing them away. He then lied to investigators about what he had done.
Comey advised and got a $10,000 fine for Berger and a three-year loss of top-level security clearance.
DOJ was to give Berger a lie detector test and that never happened.
What actually happened was under Pres. Bush, Berger got a $50,000 fine two years of probation, and one hundred hours of community service.
– Comey became a partner of the Clinton Global Initiative and was awarded 17 contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department.
– Comey announced that the FBI would not recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server and having classified info. He did say Hillary was “extremely careless”. He then maps out the case that should have crucified Hillary. Instead ? He says “we are expressing to Justice our view that no charges are appropriate in this case.”
There is more…but enough for now… this guy has been a long term Clinton protector. Who is surprised that he was “fired up”?
Totally Agree with you 100%.
Comey is the Clinton’s Right Hand Man
He has no; Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity.
And these are the Clinton’s Left Hand Men & Women:
William J. Burns
They do; The (Dirty) Work of a Nation. The Center of (insanity not) Intelligence.
None of them have the Balls to do the right thing.
In a just world corrupt, seditious James Rodham-Comey would have been prosecuted years ago
Rodham – I wonder if he is somehow related to Hillary Rodham Clinton?
The answer is as obvious as the nose on ones face. Comey and his minions were trying to interfere in the election and that was the insurance policy. Once the election was settled, Comey had the FBI orchestrate a coup’ d’ etat. If any person/s have engaged in sedition it is Comey, McCabe, Strozyk and his girlfriend Page……Cliensmith (who should have but did not go to jail) and I would imagine most everyone who works on the 7th floor of FBI HQ. That is one of the most corrupt agencies in the history of the U. S.A . and not the first time it has been used for political attacks.
Compare media coverage of the Sussman trial with the trial of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates. Enough said.
Gates pleaded guilty and cooperated. There was no trial.
The crimes that Manafort was convicted of are nothing like the crime that Sussmann was indicted for.
Sussmann ‘s crimes run much deeper and those that ignore these facts are as dumb as Hillary .
Compare the freaking trial to Flynn and the threatening of his family with prosecution/investigations? Do they threaten and try to flip any of the Dems/Deep State actors? LOL sure they do….NOT!
a “useful narrative” = a lie
“The question is why Comey and others were so reportedly eager given the lack of foundation for the false claim . . .” (JT)
Why do those people keep reminding me of Stalin’s henchman, Beria: “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.”
The Reality is that Trump was still down on the WH Lawn giving his speech for at least 20 minutes while the front-end instigators started entering the Capitol.. he was not immediately aware of the Pence chasing and to this day it cannot be proven how much of this was not instigated by Trump haters who were already prepared, i.e., chasing Pence was not spontaneous, but planned… how could any of the protesters possibly know.what Pence was doing inside..? .. to be able to organize a ‘hang Pence’ effort on the spot…?..no.. it makes more sense that this was preplanned as part of the infiltrating radical rioters’ pre-planned program,,,,,
e,g., one example of an instigator: https://thedcpatriot.com/breaking-doj-charges-blm-supporter-who-allegedly-stormed-capitol-instigated-trump-supporters/
The DOJ has charged hundreds of people who broke the law on Jan. 6, including Sullivan:
According to you, are they all “instigators”?
If not, who else do you consider instigators, and for you, what distinguishes the instigators from the non-instigators? For example, do you consider the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers charged in conspiracies to be instigators?
“For example, do you consider the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers charged in conspiracies to be instigators?”
Why not name the individuals you are talking about? Do you consider the leftists not charged as instigators but filmed as such to be instigators? Do you consider leftists that are invariably on the Videos in the Capitol Building instigators as well?
I’m not the one who introduced the word “instigator,” and it’s not a word that I tend to use, which is why I asked eighteenthhole what s/he meant by it.
Judas Pence Got His 30 Pieces of Silver Down in Georgia.
The Traitors, Comrades Liz Chainey, Mittens Romney, Adamn Kinzinger, Lisa Murkykowski, et al., Are Smiling With Judas.
Regardless of Your political affiliation, take a 2nd look at this from a distant perspective, a holistic perspective, in the parlance of Our time..
Are we not now going after the Biden Presidency* in a manner that was going after the Trump Presidency?
Let me rephrase, Are we not going after the Presidency tern-after-term serially?
It’s the Office of the Presidency, The Executive Branch, I am concerned about. instead of ‘Packing-The-Court’,
maybe We should ‘Pack-The-Presidency’ like the Swiss have done.
(They have 7 Presidents, The president of the Confederation is ‘primus inter pares’ – First among Equals – for one year, then that position rotates)
Yes! What the Democrats (H. Clinton) did here. makes Watergate look like Child’s-Play, and
It was treasonous to the Constitution (The Subversion of the National Election).
Hillary orchestrated and violated the U.S. Constitution in such a major way, that it makes what Martha Stewart did (and B.T.W. the Federal Reserve & Wall Street does everyday now) look like a J-Walking violation.
And the sickening convoluted-hypocrisy of James Comey is that, as a Prosecutor, He convicted and sent Martha Stewart away to Prison. Granted, One could say He was only doing His job, but for him too deliberately deceive ‘The People’ and and conspire to have thrown to the Left a National Election is a crime against the Nation, The United States Constitution.
What goes around, comes around, Hillary (and co-criminals) is not ‘Too Big To Jail”.
* Biden Presidency – The Clinton, Obama, Biden cadre of the Executive Office.
Why we overlook the obvious, simply put: fast and pray, do not pick up guns, do not pass go, just fast and pray and get out of the way of God’s Holy Spirit moving the mountains in our lives. We are made in God’s image, however, we are NOT God, you be you, I’ll be me, and let God be God, he is good at it.
HOW THE BLOG STOOGE OPERATES
Further down the thread one can find this series of comments.
‘Anonymous’ posts a breaking news story regarding testimony that on January 6th, Donald Trump was not concerned by news that rioters were chanting, “Hang Mike Pence”.
The Blog Stooge feels obliged to respond with 5 different puppets: Iowan2, Anonymous, Lighteredknot, Ray In SC and just plain ‘Ray’. None of the 5 puppets is making a real argument. Instead they’re either bitterly outraged or bitterly sarcastic.
The desired effect is to paint the offending article as totally outside the mainstream. You see real Americans know that Mike Pence committed treason and should’ve been hanged; or something along those lines. Reactions stupid Trumpers feel in their gut. That’s the Blog Stooge’s contribution to this forum. His puppets form a Greek Chorus of outraged small town Whites.

Trump Unbothered By Chants To Hang Pence
Shortly after hundreds of rioters at the Capitol started chanting “Hang Mike Pence!” on Jan. 6, 2021, the White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, left the dining room off the Oval Office, walked into his own office and told colleagues that President Donald J. Trump was complaining that the vice president was being whisked to safety.

Leaking little bits of testimony to the media is all the proof needed, the committee is nothing but political mudslinging for the 2022 midterm elections. Democrats are forced to distract from the results of their actions.

So because Trump is not a sympathetic character, Hillary, DNC, FBI and other agencies can attempt to carry out a coup?
Anon lighteredknot says: May 25, 2022 at 7:40 PM
ANON “He just slamdunked your snowflake arse and you talking fairytales.” He slamed dunk your twisted arse opinions. The chant to hang Pence was rhetorical. FBI took a look early on and said ” No organized activity”. What part of that do you not understand. IANAA but I would never plead guilty to any charge of insurrection for 01-06-2021 activity. I would rot in prison until the USSC made a final ruling. The Feds are playing Bad Cop Good Cop with these people and they cave to it. I will wager and allege that from Hussain Obama and Biden on down there was a coup attempted against DT from being the candidate and all the days he occupied the WhitHouse. Not one singe day did Congress attempt to work with DT and that is damn well ipso facto. Wasn’t Russia collusion the primary thing that House impeached DT on? Hillary and the DNC apparently knew and utilized fictious abject lies to seek removal of DT. But that troubles you not. Hillary Clinton comitted crimes by removing, destroying data that was under subpeona or was going to be subpeoned. Her attornies who took charge of the Personal Server containg Classified Data and the Company in Colorado with same for storage and holding, , neither had Clearence to have such Classified data in their possessions. NO RULE of Law has been applied and enforced for any of those activities. You consider yourself sanctimonous and sacroscant, only your elitest opinions are the only things right. This stooge challenges you to a duel and be it pistols and or fists.
You singled me out. It is a lie you have fabricated. I post in several different forums using the same moniker. Not sure what you believe, but it is only your delusion. Not factual.
