Department of Justice attorneys were handed a major loss, as a federal judge ruled that the FBI has to turn over former FBI Director James Comey’s memos that he wrote in regards to meeting with President Trump. The memos must be turned over by January 18. DOJ attorneys who were defending the FBI, were trying to get the case thrown out.
According to Town Hall, Judicial Watch has been trying for months to gain access to the documents, which likely resulted in the Witch Hunt on President Trump based on Comey’s testimony. Comey admitted he leaked the memos to his professor friend to get a Special Counsel appointed during his testimony, which seemed very suspicious at the time.
Tom Fitton Reacts To The Judge’s Decision
Following the judge’s decision, Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton released the following statement, per Town Hall:
“The court, in seeking to review the documents, shows it doesn’t trust the FBI or Justice Department’s representations about the infamous Comey memos. We hope now that Americans are one step closer to knowing the facts about these memos, which were written and leaked for pernicious purposes to target a sitting president with a criminal investigation.
It’s high time they begin to see the light of day. We’re glad the court followed up on our specific suggestion that it review the documents directly.”
Were Comey’s Memos Part of a Set Up?
For a man who is supposed to be apolitical, Comey has been known to openly show how Anti-Trump he really is. You can see an example HERE. And many speculate after seeing how other members of the FBI had distaste for Trump during the election, if the investigation was all brought on to overthrow Trump.
Text messages between former FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page would support that theory, as they are seen discussing an “insurance policy” in case Trump won the election. You can read more on that HERE.
Was Comey’s memos all part of the ‘insurance policy’ discussed by Strzok and Page? Afterall, Comey got his wish granted as he discussed in this testimony quote:
“I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter. I didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons, but asked him to, because I thought that it might prompt the appointment of a Special Counsel. I asked a close friend of mine to do that.”
Now that the memos will be in federal court’s possession soon, the judge sent a clear message to the FBI that they aren’t as powerful as they think they are and will not get away with this one without more review of their plot.
Do you think Mueller’s appointment as Special Counsel was all part of an organized set up? Comment your thoughts below and please Share this news with everyone!
