BOMBSHELL: Comey REFUSES To Turn Over Memo, Says He DELETED It

by Jason DeWitt | Top Right News

Mouths are dropping in D.C. at the latest stunner from fired FBI Director James Comey.

After Comey testified on Thursday, the Senate Intelligence Committee naturally asked Comey for a copy of the infamous memo in question that he had leaked through a friend to the NY Times.

During testimony, Comey testified he felt he needed to take notes to protect himself in his conversations with President Donald Trump and then being so concerned about going on record with facts after a Trump tweet that he supposedly had his friend, Daniel Richman, leak the contents to the NY Times.

Problem? When the committee asked for the memo, Comey claimed he no longer had copies.

The committee was then required to request copies from the Richman. Here’s the relevant excerpt of the letter to Richman noting this.

Wait what?

So this was so important for Comey to take the notes to protect himself, but then he deleted the memo from his FBI laptop?

Something here smells and it isn’t the fish I’m cooking for dinner.

As Nicorama of YoungCons reported, the NY Times reporter who broke the story never even saw the memo. Indeed the information he got from Richman was recounted to him over the phone from what Richman supposedly remembered. Richman didn’t have the memo when he spoke to the reporter. So would he even be able to turn it over to the committee now if he didn’t have it then?

As YC also noted, Comey appears not to have been lying under oath about his motivation for leaking. The reason one might conclude that is because the NY Times had information contained within the memo in a story on May 11, a day before the Trump tweet.

Here’s a good breakdown of that, except that it is inaccurate in saying Comey turned over the memo to the committee.

But the NY Times reporter noted that before he ran the story actually mentioning the memo on May 16, he had already been aware of the memos “for a few days.”

So obviously Comey leaked to someone who leaked to the NY Times before his ‘waking up realization’ in the middle of the night on May 15.

So why did Comey delete the memo? Or does it even exist?

    Interesting story. I went back and reviewed my video of the hearings and Comey’s response to that and another question regarding whether he considered what the President did obstruction. Seems the story doesn’t match the video record. Comey claimed he turned the memo over to Robert Muller and would allow Mr Muller to determine if it constituted obstruction, and, that he no longer had possession of the memo. Where do these people come uo with this crap?!?!

    Get more popcorn, Comey is now in deeper violation of Federal record keeping, if he typed the memo on his FBI laptop the geek boys can retrieve a copy

    He no longer had the memos because he had ALREADY PROVIDED THEM to the special counsel. Talk about “FAKE NEWS”; did you idiots at “Top Right News” not pay attention to his testimony?

    “BLUNT: Were all your memos that you recorded on classified or other memos that might be yours as a private citizen?

    COMEY: I’m not following the question.

    BLUNT: You said you used classified —

    COMEY: Not the classified documents. Unclassified. I don’t have any of them anymore. I gave them to the special counsel. My view was that the content of those unclassified, memorialization of those conversations was my recollection recorded.

    BLUNT: So why didn’t you give those to somebody yourself rather than give them through a third party?

    COMEY:Because I was weary the media was camping at the end of my driveway at that point. I was actually going out of town with my wife to hide. I worried it would be feeding seagulls at the beach. If it was I who gave it to the media. I asked my friend, make sure this gets out.”

      You don’t “turn over” electronic documents. You email them. Or put them on a thumb drive. But what ever you do, your copy is still on your hard drive or on the email server. So he said he deleted it. If it was so important to draft the memo, why would he delete it? Wouldn’t he want to keep a copy just in case his friend somehow managed to “lose” a data file? Even if it is deleted, it can be recovered – unless he, too, used “BleachBit.”

        You’re trying to read into testimony that was never made.

        He stated that he gave the memos to the special counsel. It’s not stated if the originals were hand written or electronic.

        If they were hand written he may have provided the originals or photocopies with the originals remaining at the FBI. In either of these cases, he would no longer have the memos.

        If the memos were electronic, he very well likely wrote them on an FBI computer, which would have remained FBI property when he was dismissed. In which case, he would no longer have access to the computer. Even if he wrote them on a personal computer, he may have surrender that computer to the special counsel. In either of these cases, he’d no longer have access to the originals.

        We (the public) do not know, nor does it really matter if we know exactly where the memos were written, on which type of media they were written, or who is in possession of the originals or copies. What matters is that the special counsel has copies of the memos and is aware of their full content.

        Furthermore, at no point does he state he deleted or erased the memos. Read the full transcript, not some false headlines at conspiracy blogs, articles at fake news websites, or videos posted on YouTube.

          I believe he testified that he used his government laptop in his government vehicle to type the memo. It was electronic. It shold be on his laptop or in his email. Even if he deleted it, it can be recovered unless he used used some of Hillary’s tactics.

    Simple, Comey lied, and under oath at that. Of course nothing will change and nothing will happen.
